An Editorial 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 Under the 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 s villain? The violations committee, as suggested by SGA, would have no real power. At most, it could reprimand; it could not expel or suspend a student. or an honor As we interpret it. there has been no justification system at the University of Kentucky. The issue arose, as a matter of fact, when it was alleged that tests were being stolen from various buildings. 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. SGA-propose- d,, . The University will operate on Daylight Saving Time this year, marking a change in practice from previous years. UK, as well as Lexington, will switcli to Central Daylight Time at 2 a.m. Sunday. In the past the ' University has remained on Standard Time but has moved class meeting times back an hour an 8 o'clock class would meet at 7 to allow students, staff and faculty members to take advantage of the time change.
