School dress code liberalized By SANFORD SCHMIDT Telegraph Staff Writer . The dress code for Souther e s t er n ' Schools was liberalized Thursday night at a board of education meeting; mustaches are allowed; and a move to allow beards was defeated by a 4-to-3 vote. Tom Ryan, Robert Watson and Al Hanold voted "yes", and the rest of the board voted "no." A move to completely abandon the dress code was voted down, with Bob Foiles and Don Birch the only ones for the move. In addition to allowing mustaches, the new code has been changed to delete the requirement that sweatshirts have no cutoff sleeves or markings. All shirttails may now be worn on the outside. Hair length requirements remain the same. , The changes came after recommendations by high school principal Ernest Smith. In other action, the board hired Walter Buchele to fill the vacancy left by former M e d o r a School principal James Harp, who resigned last month. Buchele will also take over Harp's duties as head of the district's Title I program and summer school. The board also hired Ted Hallum as assistant hign school principal. He fills the vacancy left by Smith, who took over for Tony Nash who Burglars' loot over $650 Over $650 in merchandise and a small amount of cash were stolen from the Wood River Freight Salvage Co. during a burglary reported Thursday. Police said entry to the company was gained through a window on the northeast corner of the building. Included in the loot was a radio, valued at $43, a movie projector valued at $600 and a dock radio valued at $30. A total of $30 worth of change was also taken, police said. In other police action, the home of Elizabeth Fahenstock was reported broken into Thursday. Police said the home was entered through a basement door which had been kicked open. Two .bedrooms in the house were ransacked and vandalized. Items missing had not been determined. In another Wood River burglary Thursday, thieves netted a .38 caliber revolver, a watch and $110 in cash from the home of Eric Smith, 352 Jennings. Police said the thieves entered the home through an unlocked door. F also resigned last month. Buchele will get $15,000 for an 11-month contract and Hallum will get $14,000 for a 10-month contract. In other action, the board informally approved a new grading system whereby each teacher will send parents an individual grade slip for each course. The teachers will use the slip to remark on the individual student's progress. High school principal Ernest Smith recommended the grading change and said grade cards formerly sent out at the halfway mark of eac'i semester were given too much weight, and students were slacking off during the second half of the semester. He said teachers were not giving a grade of "0" for unexcused absences and "Inncomplete" grades were being given when the student had no intention of completing the work. Smith said both practices would stop and grades would be given based on work for the entire semester, regardless of the grade at the midway point.
