The dress code includes: Jeans will be allowed for girls in periods of foul weather and girls shall be allowed to wear slacks and "hot-pants" at any time. The only thing that was set down for boys is that "styles should be delegated by personal taste and contemporary styles just so long as they are clean and neat."

Dial * Master Charge Bankamericard Southside out about it at the Shelton Public Library. Daughters of the Promised Land by Page Smith is a chronicle of the more than three centuries of American womenkind. In it the changing role of women is traced from the Mayflower (and before) to Flower Power (and beyond). It is the story of those who have led the fight for equal political and sexual rights as well as the quiet legion that has stayed home instead. Up from the Pedestal edited by Aileen S. Kraditor is an anthology of writings in the history of American feminism. The documents quoted represent the principal emphasis of the feminist movement in each period of its development. Tracing woman's development in the United States since the Civil War, Anne Firor Scott, in the American Woman: Who Is She, shows how the refusal of many women to accept a prescribed "female" role has been an important force behind much twentieth-century social change. In Everyone Was Brave, William L. O'Neill argues implicitly that American women are hardly better off today than they were fifty years ago. This lively history, written with charm and bristling with new interpretations, describes the American womens struggle for equality from its earliest stirrings in the 1830's to the present day. The Punch Bdo'k ot Won'ien's: Rights by Constance Rover is a fascinating collection of cartoons and writing from the famous British humor magazine, all of which deal with the subject of women's rights. The book covers in turn the problem of single women, the women's rights movement, the struggle for education, women and work, and the fight for the right to vote. The Shelton Public Library is open from noon to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and noon to 5 p.m. Saturday. Has Good Recent Me By MRS.

St. If you want quality heat you must first get quality fuel. The only answer is natural gas. Other forms of energy may have their points, but only one-nat- ural gas-has the most points in your favor. There is no cleaner energy. We call our product the civil- ized fuel. It is a non-pollutant, both in your home and the great outdoors. No form of energy responds as quickly-either up or down-to your touch of the thermostat. Economy? For healthful, fully fresh- air-circulated warmth delivered-and comfort pro- duced-no other fuel approaches the performance of natural gas, dollar for dollar. Perhaps a combina- tion cooling-heating plant (one compact unit) is best for you. It's' worth investigating. Remember, also, gas excels in many other uses-water heating, cooking, clothes drying, grilling, swimming pool heating, incinerating.., to name a few. And mul- tiple uses of America's favorite fuel will earn a low- er rate. Estimates? Gladly. No obligation.
