He was the one that teachers dispatched to paddle "unruly" students with his 2 1/2 foot, 3/4 wooden paddle with holes in it! LOL!

    We had Mr. Tracy for Industrial Arts. Cool guy, but not the one to tick off. One day, he couldn't get us to shut up, so he put a small metal trash can on a work table, pulled out his paddle and swatted the trash can with it. It flew 30 feet across the room, hitting the wall with a bang. We were perfect angels after that.

    I bet! Our basketball coach had a habit of kicking one of those old style metal garbage cans during halftime in the locker room.

    We had a 6'6" 275 lb ex CFL Lineman giving our swats in my junior high school in Manitoba, who, like your guy, used a heavy wooden paddleball paddle, with holes drilled in it to avoid wind resistance. He was very heavy for that position in the 1950s. He'd be a linebacker now. People who were "serviced" by him had to sit on pillows afterwards.

    Robb, it sounds like you guys had our Mr. Coffin's brother! LOL! Those paddles would be totally banned or outlawed today. When Coffin hit you, all the blood in your body seemed to rush to your face and head! LOL!

    You know what? Overall I loved my teachers (except Mrs. Gregory my Kindergarten teacher). They were generally good people that were severely under paid, but did a great job as far as I am concerned.
