May 11 Is, Set For Honor Vote
In May, the student body of the University will rote to accept or
reject an honor system devised by the Student Government Association.
syttenr there would be an Honor Code
Violations Committee. This ctftafeL!.. would receive letters from students wishing to turn in other students for cheating or to turn them
selves in for cheating.
We wonder how many students are going to write letters exposing
themselves for cheating. We also wonder if there might not be some
temptation to turn in an innocent student by some revenge-seekin- g
The violations committee, as suggested by SGA, would have no
real power. At most, it could reprimand; it could not expel or suspend

fact, when it was alleged that tests were being stolen from various
Under present conditions, the University may expel any student
caught cheating. It could recommend, if it so desired, that the faculty
be more cautious in the preparation and placement of tests and examinations.
, It is evident that the backers of the honor system have been guilty
of sloppy thinking. They propose an honor system at a state university,
a land grant institution, where any person who meets entrance qualifl-- j
cations must be admitted.
They have been guilty of thinking that honor can be legislated.
While we agree that law is the proper tool to enforce a moral standard
accepted by a society, we cannot see any reason for establishing an
honor system to replace a system that already has sufficient power to
curb dishonesty in academic matters.
Last, the backers of the honor system have been guilty of neglecting to study the reasons underlying successful honor systems at other
schools. These honor systems, such as the one at Virginia, are based
on tradition and date back to Jefferson.
We have no such traditional basis for an honor system here.
