' ' Students: Ban Bart? No way, dude! By PHILLIP J. WAJDA Courier-Post Staff WOODBURY HEIGHTS Ban Bart Simpson? What's next, dude? Well, if you're Tony Cotrotsos, you fight back. The 13-year-old was reprimanded by school offi cials at Gateway High School last week when he came to class in a T-shirt featuring America's favorite cartoon kid shouting, "Eat My Shorts!" Yesterday, Cotrotsos was one of about two dozen Gateway students who wore Bart T-shirts to protest the administration's policy. The controversy began last week, when Gateway administrators ordered Cotrotsos to turn his T-shirt inside-out, claiming as school officials across the country have done that it was inappropriate for school. Cotrotsos was just one of several students sporting Bart T-shirts who were ordered not to wear them to school. Like other schools, the 1,100-student facility is gripped by Bart-fever. One student, Stephen Binck, 12, even went so far as to have the "Eat My Shorts!" slogan shaved into his head. . . He waB ordered by school officials to banish Bart from the hallways by getting a new haircut. Please see STUDENTS, Page 2A
