Don O. Newland

Don Oliver Newland was an American film director and producer whose career consisted of itinerant work. From the 1920s until his death, he traveled to cities throughout the United States making films that employed local citizens as stars and extras. Using a standard script, Newland personalized each film according to its location – Belvidere's Hero, Staunton's Hero, Janesville's Hero, Huntingdon's Hero, Tyrone's Hero, Wilmington's Hero, so on. Newland was born June 8, 1896, in Battle Creek, the son of Dr. J. S. Newland and the former Josephine Roche, he enlisted in the United States Army on Aug 28, 1918, in Chicago and was assigned to 4th Company, Development Battalion No. 1. He spent less than five months in the military, being discharged at Camp Wadsworth, S. C. on Jan 9, 1919, as part of the country's general demobilization after World War I. While records indicating when Newland entered film production have not surfaced, newspaper publicity for his Hero films credited him with producing one-reelers with Mary Pickford, James Kirkwood, Flora Finch and John Bunny.

Since Bunny died in 1915, Newland would have started in films. He was credited with directing comedies for Mack Sennett. In the early 1920s, Newland began the frenetic itinerant work that would take him all over the United States capturing communities and their citizens in two-reeler comedies that used the same simple, customizable plot. Operating as the Consolidated Film Producing Co. of Los Angeles, California, he was commissioned by local newspapers to produce the films, which always contained the role of a reporter and a prominent look at how the local newspaper was produced – although the papers stressed that the project was not an advertising film. Contests were held in each community to determine who the "leading lady" would be. Filming took place in no more than three days, with Newland directing a cameraman and one or two crew members. A standard bit of action was to stage a head-on car crash on a city street using "trick photography; the cars would be backed away from each other and the film, when developed and reversed, would appear to show a head-on collision.

Developing and editing took another couple of days, within a week of Newland's arrival in town, the Hero film would be shown to the community at a local movie theater. When sound pictures became the standard after 1929, Newland adjusted to meet the technological advance, it is believed. Some have enjoyed revivals in the communities in which they were shot. Only four of these "Hero" films are known to exist; these films are Janesville's Hero, Belvidere's Hero, Huntingdon's Hero, Tyrone's Hero. Newland never made a great deal of money with his itinerant film work and would give it up to pursue more mainstream employments. In a 2005 newspaper interview, his daughter, Hellen Newland, noted: "My father loved film-making, it was his passion and he threw himself into it with everything he had. He wasn’t much of a businessman – he didn’t care anything about money –he just wanted to move about in his creative world."In 1951, Newland traveled with his wife and children to Tampa, Florida for the winter. On May 5, while driving in Tampa, he crashed.

Newland was rushed to the hospital with severe spinal cord injuries. Newland died May 7 and his body was removed to South Bend, where relatives lived, he was buried there in Riverview Cemetery on May 11

Ingraham v. Wright

Ingraham vs. Wright, 430 U. S. 651, was a United States Supreme Court case that upheld the disciplinary corporal punishment policy of Florida's public schools by a 5–4 vote. Leo Ingraham was a 14-year-old eighth grade student at Charles R. Drew Junior High School in 1970. On October 6, 1970, Ingraham was accused of failing to promptly leave the stage of the school auditorium when asked to do so by a teacher, he was taken to the school principal's office, where he stated that he was not guilty of the accusation against him. Willie J. Wright, Jr. the principal, ordered Ingraham to bend over so that Wright could spank Ingraham with a spanking paddle. When Ingraham declined to bend over and allow himself to be paddled, he was forcibly placed face-down on the top of a table. Lemmie Deliford, the assistant principal, held Ingraham's arms and Solomon Barnes, an assistant to the principal, held Ingraham's legs. While Ingraham was being restrained, Wright used a spanking paddle to hit Ingraham more than 20 times.

The paddling was so severe. Physicians instructed Ingraham to rest at home for a total of eleven days, he and his parents sued the school, calling it "cruel and unusual punishment" and loss of liberty, but lost the initial trial. The Florida state court held that Florida tort laws provided sufficient remedies to satisfy Ingraham's due process loss of liberty claims; the court held that the U. S. Constitution's prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment does not apply to the corporal punishment of children in public schools, that the constitution's due process clause does not require notice and a hearing prior to the imposition of corporal punishment in public schools; the Supreme Court declined to consider the plaintiffs' substantive due process claims in Ingraham v. Wright. Lower courts have adopted a variety of approaches to the substantive due process issue, none of which offer much protection for students who are subjected to corporal punishment at school; the Supreme Court has denied certiorari on the issue of whether school corporal punishment constitutes a substantive due process constitutional violation.

As of 1994, Lemmie Deliford, one of the administrators involved, was still a proponent of corporal punishment in schools. School corporal punishment in the United States Text of Ingraham vs. Wright, 430 U. S. 651 is available from: CourtListener Justia Library of Congress Oyez
