One good spank makes another un

tions of Samuel J. Slaweon, new su
perintendent of Bridgeport schools
The -old-fashioned remedy for ob
streperousness is likely to be intro
duced ino -the schools of Bridgeport.
While favoring corporal punishment.
Superintendent Slawson has his, own
Ideas as to how it should be done. .
Superintendent ' Slawson . addressed
the - teachers of , the city yesterday at
a meeting In the assembly hall of the
high school. He outlined his : plans
for the year and gavel a general talk
on his policies for .-education. ; . . .
He related an ; incident of his ca
f reer in- Stamford. A high school boy,
he said, .had committed an offense
against the discipline of the school
and it -was thought that, ordinary
methods of punishment.;; would not
suffice to curb the boy's tendencies,
Mr. Slawson says he ' took him to a
retired spot and placed him gently
across his knees. The resulting Ope
ration, he said, had a salutary effect.
Years later," said Mr. Slawson,. the
i boy; then- a young man and success
ful, came to him and' thanked him
whole-heartedly. . "Mr. Slawson,"' he
' said, "that . was the best thing that
ever happened to- me."
The new -superintendent doesn't be
lieve in" to great use of slap sticks,
, rubber tubing, or hand slaps, he said.
Above all,v he cautioned the teachers
that childrfen should never be hit on'
the head, as it tends to retard devel
opment. A touching story was related by Mr.
Slawson. Once, : he said, he was a
teacher and was dissatisfied with his
salary. The death, of a son, however,
caused him to resign himself to his
profession and to devote himself to
-teaching - either -men's sons. I

" A bunch "of these petitions was pre

happiness to Mayor Wilson s official

beamed with joy. , . !."
It' was as though the city already
had vbegun to spend the $300,000 it will
cost to . pave the additional streets,
with Bridgeport's most popular pat-f

city treasury for hundreds of thou
sands of dollars," without competition
or bidding, of the .ordinary require
ments precedent to doing business with
an honestly managed municipality. '
Fo-r'thi-s pavement $200,900 .has-been
paid from the, treasury. Other pay
ments are : pending. The cost of it is
very high, considering its durability.

contains 11 inches of crushed stone be

work, when the Warrenite pavements

ON FRAUD WRIT;
Banker Is Alleged to Have
Misappropriated $4,000 of
Hungarian Sicjf Benefit
Herbert M. Knapp, who was presi
dent of the banking firm of - Burr &
Knapp when it went into the hands
of a receiver last September, causing
losses of thousands to -many local de
positors, was arrested this afternoon
on a body writ in an action brought
by the Hungarian Sick Benefit Socie
ty. After being in the custody of
Deputy - Sheriff Stiegler for a short
time Knapp was released in bonds of
$5,000, furnished by his relatives. At
torneys - DeForest & Klein ' brought
the action. , It is alleged, that Knapp
misappropriated $4,000 deposited by
the Hungarian society with 'the bank
ing . firm. , '
Proceedings" of this nature against
Knapp were predicted last April when
Attorney J.B. Klein at a hearing in
the bankruptcy -court denounced
Knapp in ringing terms for his firm's
method of using depositors' funds.
The $4,000 was deposited' By the
Hungarian society with the under J
standing that Burr &. Knapp were to
forward the money to members of the
society abroad. The funds, 'neyer
reached their destination and numer
ous complaints were received here.
The society officials went - to Burr &
Knapp but received nothing except ex
planations which didn't explain. ( ,
At the bankruptcy hearing an em
ploye of the banking firm admitted
that the money, received from the
Hungarian society was deposited with
Burr & Knapp's funds in a local bank.
The reason the money was not sent
abroad, was because the firm " didn't
have the funds in New Tork upon
It is understood that for several
months counsel for -the society have
been endeavoring to induce Knapp to
make some kinif of a settlement but
as he showed no disposition to return

So. startling were the details of the
tragedy that the residents n tho ex

son," 60 Milne street, were even to
day appalled to such an extent that
many -of them were unable to even
talk about it -'" . . - '
Mr. Canip and his wife have lived

ammunition plant of the Remington-
U. M. C. Company and highly regard
ed. She was born in New Britain,
(the daughter' of John Sloan, a well
known merchant of that city. Her
jage is given as 40 years. - ' -
According to Medical Examiner S.
M. , Gar lick, who . was called to the
house about 10 o'clock last Saturday
night Mrs. Camp has been despondent
for some time, and recently took an
extreme aversion to companions with
whom Mr. Camp often went auto
mobiling. . ';
On Saturday he had returned to
dinner as usual and, announced that
he was going to 'Stamford ,-that -afternoon.
She objected; and ' hex finally
consented to return that night.
As Mr. Camp was leaving the house
his wife called to him saying "'Some
time you may go away on -one of these
trips and when you come back I shall
not be here." , He thought nothing of
the occurrence more than that she
might have become more despondent
than ' usual. '
On his return home that night, he
found his wife lying partially dress
ed upon a bed. . . A gas tube was held
closely to the mouth showing that she
had committed . suicide. ,
Medical Examiner Garlick " who
viewed the body gave it as his opinion
that she had been dead about 6
hours and had probably committed
the deed shortly after her husband
had left the house.
A note found by Mr. Camp and
addressed to him merely said: vTou
will know why I have done this."
