"This story, like many others. Is

sor John AduniH, who Is lecturing on
education at the university Bummci
school in a lecture yesterday ex
pressed himself as not In favor of
corporal punishment as a rule, either
by teachers or parents. He said:
"There are many parents who,
much to their dislike, punish their
children because tbey really think It

But they would do better to expend
the same energy and care that the
do in punishing, in looking out be

badness. You may whip a child lnti
doing something or not doing some
thing, but he Is not convinced, hit
will Is not conquered, and the onl;
effect Is to make him want to dlsobe;
all the more the next time. It woulc
be better to let him do part of wba
be wants the first time, and avoid th
punishment and stirring up bis an
ger, and then the next time you wll
bave more influence on bis will.
"What we want to do Is to mak'
the child think he Is standing on hh
own will. When you have gottei
him to do the right thing, let bin
think he baa done It because b'
wanted to himself, not because yoi
made him do It. He will do the rlgh
thing easier next time."
