Meade High School teacher Frank Roush hopes students will find peace in a 4-by-6-inch card.About 750 students have signed the white cards, vowing to talk out their differences instead of raising their fists.

They get an award -- a T-shirt or a coupon at a fast food restaurant -- for each period without problems.Mr. Roush, the junior ROTC instructor, came up with the idea five years ago after he was beaten up trying to stop a fight between two students.
