Code Of Dress Proposed By Class Friday, May 3d, 1969 Th« Advanced Social Studies Problems Class of Robert E, Lee High School, under the supervision of Clyde Henderson, has proposed an alternate code of dress following a study of the code of dress sanctioned by the school board on March 24. A representative group of students and the entire faculty at REI, were given questionnaires that enabled each of the individuals to state his views on the present code of dress. Response from the voting showed that 37 teachers felt that GIVE/a AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY •oytpwn Pockoq* Sror* Mil Mark* St. Oat the present code of dress accomplished its purpose while 22 teachers did not feel it did. Questionnaires returned by students showed that 65 students felt that the present code accomplished its purpose while 395 students felt that it failed to achieve its objective. Based on the findings in the study, primary objections to the present code of dress are that the code of dress is too specific, does not accomplish its purpose of forming a better atmosphere for learning, creates more disturbances than it prevents, causes rebellion and creates a student- faculty friction. Because of these objections to the present code of dress, alternatives to it were viewed. These included mofification of the existing code, abolishing the existing code with no replacement at this time and preparing another code, involving student, faculty and administrative approval. As a result of the study, the class proposed an alternative code of dress which is as follows: "Any appearance or dress which disrupts, is unhealthy, or unsafe is unacceptable in the school." Marines To Send Recruiter Here S-Sgt. Lewis L. Robertson of the Pasadena Marine Corps Recruiting Office announces that a USMC recruiter will be available three days each week at the Federal Building in Baytown effective June 3. The USMC will share the Navy's office and will maintain office hours from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. "Now that graduation is over," Robertson said, "good friends don't have to go their separate ways in the military service . . . they can go in the corps together on our Buddy Plan." Sgt. Robertson said the special program allows five men to enlist together and be guaranteed initial assignment to the same training unit. WHAT ABOUT THE DANGERS? SYDNEY (AP) - There's a book club in Sydney where members are encouraged to attempt public speaking. One young woman was pretty hopeless, but was persuaded to try again with the subject "The Dangers of Drug-taking." She was fluent, and members asked how she had overcome her nervousness. "I'm not sure," she replied, "but 1 did take a couple of pep pills before 1 began." ;i;tJO-: HAPPYAH NlV E R S AR Y TO SHERYL SH ELTON FROM THAILAND WITH LOVE! Mrs. Lawrence H. Shelton of 506 Green Was Thrilled That's One Way Of Saying It Wilson Dugger, assistant manager of Sear' Baytown store, received an unusual request from a Baytown army officer stationed in Thailand. Capt. Lawrence H. Shelton, whose wife lives at 506 Green St., wanted to express his affection for his wife via a large sign Sears has on Texas Avenue. The Sheltons will celebrate their second wedding anniversary Friday — he in Thailand, she in Baytown. "1 am living in Sattahip, Thailand, and will be here a year," Capt. Shelton wrote Sears. "I would like to do something nice for my wife to show her the thought is there when 1 very unfortunately cannot be. "I would -like to know if you The first European to sail Long Island Sound full length was the Dutch navigator Adriaen Block, who in 1614 negotiated the turbulent Hell Gate of the East River and emerged into the sound. would consider extending me the use of your sign board which faces on Texas Avenue? 1 would like to put up u large anniversary note to my wife," Shelton requested. Dugger replied by having the sign rearranged for the captain. Shelton was once employed by the store as a stock boy, demonstrator, and as a clown for several years at the Sears Fall Family Fun Fair. Mrs. Shelton said: "How sweet, how very, very thoughtful of him!" You cant buy these checks. They're free.
