"The altern atives to the Honor code are so frightful that we need not even discuss them. No one wants a monitor system, nor do teachers want to spy on their students." Evidently, most UNC in structors expect their students to observe the honor code. Only eight students out of 100 said their teachers either did not use it, or used other meth ods of insuring honesty. : "I always expect my stu dents to be honest, and I treat them as honest people," said Walker.

Spot No. 6 Name of person Campus address ! Walker was a member of the Special Advisory Committee on the Honor System which met on a weekly basis through the school year 1964-65.

The committee's report was finished June 22, 1965.

Doug McKeown, administra tive assistant to the elections board, said there will be "a meager list of acceptable ex cuses" for persons not attending. other form of student disci pline. Though the Honor and Campus codes are admittedly idealistic, most of the persons interviewed felt that these codes should be preserved." Among the suggestions for improving the Honor System was the proposal to establish an honor court made up of both male and female repre sentatives to try cases in which the Honor Code (as opposed to the Campus Code) had been broken. Also specified was the pen alty for a conviction of cheat ing. This fact should be widely publicized so that students will be aware of it."

' The elections board will "not hesitate to disqualify any can didate" who does not meet the requirements, McKeown said. And ignorance of the rules will be no excuse. McKeown also said there "will be much stricter en forcement of the elections laws than has been in the past," particularly in the cam paign expenses. ! "There has been a lot of fudging on campaign expenses in the past," he said, indicat ing that the elections board will stiffen up considerably in this area. Parties and organizations endorsing a candidate must turn in these names at the Thursday meeting. All students running without party endorsement or Pub Board backing must submit their petitions by Thursday, also. McKeown explained that the ballots are being changed this year, with all names be ing photographed and put on the ballot. ICiau Sill RALEIGH (AP) The North Carolina House tenta tively approved legislation Tuesday authorizing the gov ernor to increase rewards in infamous crimes as a means of clamping down on the Ku Klux Klan The measure would give the governor the power to in crease rewards from $400 to $10,000 for information lead ing to the arrest and convic tion of prsons wanted in infa mous crimes. , After the House had given second reading approval to the bill, Rep. Roger Kiser, D Scotland, objected to immed iate third reading. The mea sure was carried over until Wednesday. In his legislative address last month, Moore recom mended the increased reward as one of three measures to clamp down on the Ku Klux Klan. The other two bills were on Tuesday's House cal endar, but were postponed at the request of Rep. Claude ered the responsibilities of the faculty under the Honor Code. "A more extensive orientation of new faculty members should be undertaken." "The committee recommends that strongly faculty members make every effort to increase the use of essay type tests. Furthermore, ' we recommend that every effort be made to see that .students are not crowded into rooms when they take examina tions." Sharp Endorsed The Faculty Committee on Student Discipline received the report of the special commit tee in October of 1965. In a January, 1966 letter to Chan cellor Sharp, the Faculty com mittee endorsed the proposal to establish an honor court composed of men and women to try those offenses it de scribed as falling under the The South' s Largest n) off CHAPEL HILL, NORTH CAROLINA, ' --... . r , x ; I S Chapel Hill Turns take to the Campus, -DTH Gardner IF IF By SJULIE PARKER DTH Staff Writer Chances are nil for any money from Congress to help the National Students Asso ciation out of the financial hole left when it rejected un-der-cover funds from the Cen tral Intelligence Agency, Con- Approved Hamrich, D-Forsyth, sponsor of the measures and chairman of House Judiciary I Commit tee.

Hamrich told the House that the governor and House Judiciary I Committee felt that while a person "may be willing -to become an inform ant for $400," the increased reward would offer more in ducement.

"I question the wisdom of coupling arrest and convic tion," he added. "I think it should be arrest or convic tion." f "Academic Honor Code." The court has not yet been established. "The instructor has an obli gation to make his tests hard to cheat on," said Walker. But all instructors are not going to give essay-type quiz es. They are difficult to grade they take a lot of time, and a great many teachers are verv lazy. "Of course, no one is per fect. There is some level at which everyone will give in to temptation. However, the few er precautions against cheat ing a professor takes, the low er that level becomes." Another member of the fac ulty, Professor Henry C. Bor en, defended the part of the Honor Code which requires a student to turn in others he has observed cheating. Boren sent a letter to the Editor of the DTH in February, 1964, ex pressing his views.

"With a $74 billion budget slated for defense, Congress is not in a mood to appropriate anything for domestic spend ing that isn't absolutely nec essary," Gardner said. T?SA will have to lobby the executive agencies to get funds, Gardner thinks. Gardner was interviewed at WUNC-TV just before he ap peared on "North Carolina News Conference" Monday evening. He was asked what he thought of the newest draft reforms proposed this week end by a presidential commis sion. The commission's plan rec ommended calling men 19 years of age first by a na tional lottery and cutting off student deferments. "I haven't had a chance to see the report yet, but from newspaper reports I'd say it looks like a good plan al though I don't believe I'd agree with a lottery - based system." He said that college enroll ments probably would not be affected much by the plan since a maximum of 300,000 men are drafted yearly and there are now about 2 mfilion youths 19 years of age. "The present system defi nitely needs overhauling, and I plan to look into this new proposal more thoroughly when I get back to Washing ton." During the telecast Gardner he tried "to persuade students who think otherwise that it is honorable to turn in academic cheats." Boren's letter was in reply to another letter, in which the writer stated that the only true honor system is that which "Students are not children, and at some point they have to make the adjustment in the direction of mature behavior" .W.VW.W. .v.v.v.v.w. puts each students on his own honor.

During an interview in Which he said he was merely giving his personal opinions, Cathey Meredith NEW YORK (AP) James Meredith, who broke the color line at the University of Mis sissippi, was named by the Republicans today to oppose Adam Clayton Powell in a spe cial Harlem congressional election next month. Meredith said he would accept. "No one has an automatic right to a seat in Congress," said Meredith, in accepting designation by' the GOP Ex Aid. 071 said he bucked the GOP and voted against seating Adam Clayton Powell "because he has falsified vouchers, forged names on government checks and misappropriated govern ment money. v "I hope legal action will be taken.

Powell had been regarded as a sure winner in the April 11 special election for the seat from which he was ousted by Congress last week. The Republicans obviously hoped Meredith's reputation in the field of civil rights would make him a strong contender. Meredith, who said he was opposed to Powell's ouster from Congress, said he was aware that in opposing the Ne gro Democrat he might lay himself open to "the fear and the scorn from fellow Ne groes." Powell's lawyers said he will make no attempt to block the special election April 11. Attorney Robert Carter said the decision grew out of a con ference with Powell, who is in Bimini in the Bahamas. Democratic leader J. Ray mond Jones said he plans to give the required 10-day no tice for a meeting of 18th dis trict Democratic committee men, who will nominate a can didate from their party.

"The Honor code, in cluding the student's responsi bility to turn in violators, just has to be there." "I also taueht at Southern Illinois University, where there is no honor code stated explicitly. However, even there I frequently left the classroom during quizzes," he said. The general oomion of ev ery faculty member interview ed seemed to be favorable to the hnnor system as it is.

Basically agreeing with the commission, however, he sug gested that the names of stu dents in their upper teens be placed on the lottery list. Cathey said he did not favor using grades as a means of deciding who "goes." The dean said that Phi Beta Kappas should be treated the same as students who were failing. He did not elaborate. As for graduate students, Cathey said they shouldn't be allowed to continue their edu cation past undergraduate school without first having been eligible for the draft. Cathey said that in some ways education might even be improved through elimination of student deferments because "Students attending college would be more mature" after military service. As an example of what he considers is greater maturity, the dean mentioned former soldiers returing to school here after World War II. He said that as a group they performed well compared to many nonveterans. Greater maturity, Cathey continued, would not be the only benefit derived from his proposed system. He said that the GI Bill would assist many students in financing their edu cations following military ser vice. The lottery system, together' with drafting younger men first, are measures which Johnson says he will put into effect through executive or ders. Selective Service Director Lt. Gen. Lewis B. Hershey said Monday that he was im mediately preparing to start drafting 19-year-old first. i a workman repairs the Photo by Jock Lauterer
