A Pi Beta Production
You are the headmaster of a school who takes a dim view of truancy. In the local paper the day after your local (Sunderland) football club was playing an evening cup match some 200 miles away from home you see a picture of some of the crowd.
Clearly recognisable in the photograph, in the front row are a couple of boys from your school David Chadwick and George Brown, both thirteen. You check the attendance register and discover that both were absent from school the previous afternoon. One had brought in a note from his mother claiming that he was absent because he was sick that afternoon while the other has a similar note but was clearly written by him. The standard punishment in the school is a six stroke caning.
What will you do?
