By RICHARD ROSENBERG
After two months of panning, a
formulated dress code /went into
effect at Ford High. BoYs are now
allowed to wear blue jeans and
sport mustaches, and girls are per-
mitted to wear culottes; these were
the major items causing contro-
versy-
However, beards are still un-
acceptable, as are long sideburns
and hair below the collar. Also,
girls are not permitted to wear
slacks.
Discrepancies had occurred for
months before the code was estab-
lished, and students and teachers
alike agreed some uniform regula-
tions had to be made. The proce-
dure consisted of a period of testi-
monies of students before a stu-
dent-faculty-administration board.
They, in turn, drew up a code
which was presented to the prin-
cipal, Samuel Milan. Mr. Milan
announced the regulations at a
press conference over the PA Jan.
27.
The new semester brought with
it minor faculty changes, in the
form of English teachers. Russell
deBeauclair and George Lim.
Leaving Ford were Mrs. Edna
Freier, Mrs. Johanna Kobran and
Mrs. Marlene Loucks, from the
English department, Isaiah
Branch, a math teacher, and
Theresa Nwokedi, from the science
department.
Preparations are being made
for Bandtastic, the annual band
concert with a touch of comedy.
Although there won't be as many
skits as in previous years, the
popular teacher's skit will make
its return. Bandtastic is set for
March.
Publications at Ford continue to
win the top journalism awards in
the country. Under Richard Petrie,
the Spotlight, Ford's newspaper,
took the top award from Quill and
Scroll, National Newspaper Serv-
ice and Columbia Scholastic Press
Association.
The Spotlight also was awarded
the All-American for the first
semester last year, and the first
place award for the second sem-
ester from the National Scholastic
Press Association. Ford's yearbook,

`Youth Aliya Must Face
Problems of Poor Sabras'

NEW YORK (JTA)—A prominent
American educator said Youth
Aliya, the international child res-
cue movement that brings disad-
vantaged or endangered Jewish
children from abroad to Israel for
upbringing and education, may in
coming years have to deal with the
problem of native-born disadvan-
taged youngsters in Israel.
Dr. Milton Schwebel, dean of
Rutgers University's graduate
school of education, said that these
children were mainly offspring of
immigrants from the Arab coun-
tries.
Dr. Schwebel spoke before some
300 leaders of Hadassah, the Wom-
en's Zionist Organization of Amer-
ica, which sponsors the Youth
Aliya movement. The occasion was
a banquet marking the 35th anni-
versary of Youth Aliya which
wound up a four-day midwinter
conference of the Hadassah nation-
al board held to plan activities
during the year ahead.
Dr. Schwebel said that Youth
Aliya had developed "unique meth-
ods" for dealing with disadvan-
taged children that stressed "the
problems rather than the child's
alleged incapacities."
