With the strains of the anthems of the Army, Navy, Marines, Coast Guard and Air Force filling the room, hundreds of students and faculty members at Winters Mill High rose to their feet and offered a steady stream of grateful applause to the nearly 300 war veterans who had gathered for a day of remembrance. Among them stood men and women who had served in conflicts stretching back to World War II. There was 92-year-old Henry Singer, who served in the Navy from 1934 to 1945. Standing beside him was his friend, fellow Navy man Charles Swiderman, 85, who clutched a framed painting of the USS Santee, the carrier on which he served from 1942 to 1945.

When the Carroll County school board adopted a countywide student dress code in June, board President Susan W. Krebs predicted that three-quarters of the students who wear shorts to school would find themselves in violation of the new rules. She wasn't far off. "It's going to be real tough," Winters Mill Principal Sherri-Le W. Bream said yesterday morning of the rules as she welcomed ninth- and 10th-graders into the new, still-gleaming $35.4 million school outside Westminster. The prickliest of the new rules requires that skirts and shorts be a modest length, resting midthigh or lower when a girl is seated.

Once a week, 72 students arrive at Winters Mill High School in Westminster dressed in green Class A Army uniforms -- black polished shoes and all. Their jackets are neatly pressed, their ties and name tags straight. They wear crisply pointed garrison caps. In the afternoon, they stand at attention in two rows in the school hallway as other student-officers inspect their uniforms from the tops of their caps to the tips of their shoes. The 72 students are part of Carroll County's first high school Junior ROTC program, an Army-sponsored program that began at Winters Mill in the fall.

Sarah Bursey's flowing, hand-beaded designer evening gown - made of blue chiffon with a lime green underskirt - set her parents back about $300 last year for the junior prom, or about $50 for each hour she wore it. Now the Burseys' investment could become another lucky girl's bonanza. Marked down to half its retail price, Sarah's gown will be among a collection of barely worn - or, in some cases, brand new - dresses being sold during Prom Fest at Winters Mill High School next month. "You can make money and clean out your closets at the same time," said Linda Hoppe, whose son is a senior at Winters Mill.

If her oldest son makes the soccer team at Winters Mill High School, it will cost Beth Wolf $60. But she's not complaining. With four children in youth sports leagues, the Westminster woman is used to writing checks. "If it helps them get nicer uniforms or whatever they need to have a better season, that's fine," Wolf said. Her views are typical of the response - at least so far - to the Carroll County school system's new policy requiring high school athletes to pay to play. Some educators worry that the charges might shut out needy students, but officials say they've heard no significant outcry - perhaps because many parents are accustomed to paying for youth sports.
