Excerpt from book:
CHAPTER II I remember first seeing Tim, a boy ten years of age, just ready to shed his knee pants, a beautiful boy to look at, and with a spring in his movement that so attracted my attention that I turned around to give him a second glance. He was in the seventh grade, and from almost the first day manifested an jjmruly disposition. His idea seemed to be that no one should control him. He had been elsewhere to school, and was familiar with most of the mean little ways of annoying a teacher and disturbing the school. He began by telling the boys that his teacher did not dare to whip him; that she would better not touch him, and continued in this way until it became evident that unless he showed a different spirit he could not long be tolerated in the school. When hemade a disturbance, if his teacher spoke to him, he would fly into a violent passion, and become very disagreeable to deal with. I talked with his teacher about him and finally decided that probably the best thing for him and all concerned would be to give him a strapping. His mother said, " I can do nothing with him at home, if you can make anything out of him, do it, and use your own judgment as to the means you employ." I studied his case until I felt confident that physical pain would have a very beneficial —,, . -,.,."x- effect on him. A few days after I came to this conclusion, the seventh and eighth grades were passed into the high school room to spend an hour. As they were returning to their respective rooms Tim createddisorder in the ranks by interfering with those in front of him.

His face was pale with rage, and he seemed like ...
