1 Ethical Question .
Ethical reasons for opposing th
closed trials .were based upon .tha
statement that "secrecy , is . fUndr
amentally opposed" to the prin-i
ciples of democratic thought ;and
the notion of public participation
in government.' .
Due to the fact that they are
conducted in secret, 'the" student
courts are the object of wider
spread distrust and disrespect.. It
is alleged in the bill .that- this
"disrespect" . and distrust - is re
flected in distrust and disrespect
for. the Honor System and Student
Government in general." . . f
-Would Prevent Offenses
Closed courts" also .are .fail-,
,ing in their primary "purpose, of
preventing student offenses,
it -is "stated." This is because "the
present , syst in - emphasizes
punishment of the , offender
. rather than prevention of the
Open courts, it . is claimed, '.
"would act as a strong pre-:

ers . . . . . ' and would protect -the
accused and the 'court from "
false and erroneous reports,
about the conduct of the trials." '

the awareness of the Courts
and the students . of their' re
sponsibilities," the bill asserts.
