views on Honor Code
By DIANE NORMAN
Cautious optimism is the prevailing attitude expressed by
faculty members involved in the recent controversy
surrounding the elimination of the "rat clause" from the
"It is clear that the previous system didn't function well,"
said Henry Landsberger, professor of sociology. "The new
system can't function any worse, and it is my sincere hope that
the new system will function better."
Landsberger said he hopes the removal of the "rat clause"
will enable students to support the Honor Code
wholeheartedly and renew their commitment to the ideals of
With the elimination of the "rat clause," students are no
longer legally bound to report observed instances of cheating.
Although this means students may no longer be tried in Honor
Court for failing to report a violation, they are morally
obligated to report cheating under the guidelines for student
"The fact that the students called the provision for reporting
violations the 'rat clause' reflects that they perceived it to be in
conflict with their responsibilities," said E. Maynard Adams,
chairperson of the faculty.
"The purpose in eliminating the 'rat clause' was to remove
an obstacle in the way in which people relate to the Honor
System," Adams said. "Hopefully, this makes it much more
likely that students will see the Honor System as theirs one
they can embrace."
The next important step, Adams said, is to design an
educational program which will provide sufficient
consciousness-raising information abour the Honor'Code to
improve the actual operation of the new system.
"Whether the changes in the Honor Code really have any
effect depends on the educational efforts on the part of the
students and faculty of the University," said Mark
Appelbaum, associate professor of psychology.
"Simply changing the structure of the Honor Code won't
change things very much," Appelbaum said. "The Honor
Code will be successful if we can manage to instill in the
students the importance of being honorable."
"There is a feeling on the part of a number of professors that
the Honor Code is a farce," Landsberger said.
If an increase in reports of cheating violations and more
convictions by the Honor Court result from the. revisions of
the code, then faculty confidence in the system should
increase, Landsberger said.
"There is a wide belief among members of the faculty that if
they report honor violations to the student courts that nothing
happens," Adams said.
"If there is evidence that the judicial system is working
that students are being tried, that they are being convicted
when there is a reasonable amount of evidence against them,
and that they are being dealt with fairly then there will be
more cooperation from the faculty in reporting cases and less
chance of departments dealing directly with suspected honor'
violations," Adams said. '

Rejected by UNC
NCSU gets economical
Bell Centrex system

By SI SAN I.ADD
N.C. State University has accepted a plan (rejected by
UNC last semester) whereby students will not be
charged directly for telephone installation or monthly
service, Gerald D. Hawkins, NCSU assistant dean of
student affairs, said Monday.
A new Southern Bell system, Centrex 2. will be put
into operation at NCSU this fall. Phones will be
installed in every room this summer. Formerly, each
two- or four-room suite had one phone. Phones will
have permanent four-digit numbers and will he hooked
up before students move in.
UNC considered a similar arrangement with
Southern Bell last fall, but rejected the proposal because
University officials said they believed the system would
generate extra work for the University with little real
savings to students.
The cost of the NCSU service will be absorbed by a
$25 increase in dorm rent, making the total rent $235 per
semester. Hawkins said. Approximately $18 ol this w ill
be appropriated to Southern Bell. A one-time
installation fee will be payed by NCSU to add
approximately 400 phones to dorm rooms.
Phone installation at UNC will cost $21 next fall, and
the average monthly service charge will run between $8
and $9 before any long-distance calls are made.
"We think it will be a real advantage," Hawkins said.
"It will give telephone access to all students, save them
money and improve service."
But Bain Jones, former UNC Residence Housing
Association president, said, "The figures we had (which
would have required at least a $28 dorm rent increase)
show that, in the long run, students wouldn't be paying
any less. It also takes away the right of the student to
decide whether or not they want a phone. It was my
feeling that the system was unsound."
John I., t emple. UNC vice chancellor for business
and finance, said a prime objection to the system was
that it "required the University to get back into the
"In effect, we would be contracting with Southern
Bell and suh-contracting to students," Temple said. "We
w ould have to set up a system as a go between for the
students and the phone company. This would have to be
translated into more student cost."
"We just see it as another utility," Haw kins said. "We
contract w ith Carolina Power and I ight for power, and
we contract with Southern Bell for telephone service. If
a student doesn't want a telephone, we can have it
disconnected, but he won't get a reduced rent. It will be
considered part of the rent."
Joe Mills, NCSU Inter-residence Council president,
said State students are in favor of the system. "In the
long run. it will be much simpler and cheaper for the
student." he said.
Southern Bell will bill NCSU at a monthly rate for
local service. Students may contract separately with
Southern Bell for long distance service.
As phone numbers will be permanent, a listing w jll be
published of dorm rooms and numbers as well as a
current student directory.
Other universities using the Centrex system are the
University of South Carolina, Clemson and
Appalachian. NCSU became interested in the program,
investigated the system at these universities and talked
with representatives about their opinions of the system,
"Of course, there's a lot of extra work involved for
us," Haw kins said. "It was our feeling that there were as
many advantages as far as communications and savings
to the student. Next year we may find out that we made
a mistake, but I don't think so."
Georgia Tech unanimously voted into ACC Monday
From Wire Reports
ATLANTA Georgia Tech officially joined the Atlantic
Coast Conference Monday and, will become an eligible
participant in conference'sports as of July 1, 1979.
The Executive Committee of the ACC said after a meeting
with Tech's athletic board that requirements for membership
in the conference had been fulfilled and that members had
voted unanimously for Tech's admission.
The action put the Yellow Jackets back in a major football
league again after 14 years as an independent. They will also
be a member of one of the country's top basketball
conferences as of the 1979-80 season.
The other members of the ACC are Clemson, Duke,
Maryland, North Carolina, N.C. State, Virginia and Wake
Tech will be formally inducted into the ACC at the
conference's spring meeting in Myrtle Beach, S.C., May 16.
,The biggest problem facing Tech athletic officials will be the
makeup of football schedules which are arranged years in
advance. Duke is the sole ACC team scheduled only for the
next two years.
Some schedule swapping may be arranged and the
conference may also designate certain games as conference
contests to enable Tech to qualify for the league
championship, but even so it will probably be at least five
years before Tech will compete for the conference football
"I'm delighted," UNC Athletic Director Bill Cobey said.
"Tech will be a tremendous added dimension to the
Duke Athletic Director Tom Butters said; "Georgia Tech is
a class, prestigious institution. It will broaden our scope as a
conference and open up a great metropolitan area. 1 think it
will be mutually beneficial to both of us."
Maryland Athletic Director Jim Kehoe, who was one of
Tech's biggest supporters in its move to gain ACC admission,
suggested that Atlanta's Omni would make an excellent site
for the ACC Basketball Tournament.
Tech has been an independent in football since 1963, when
it withdrew from the Southeastern Conference. The school
applied for readmission to the SEC last November, but was
turned down because the league didn't want more than 10
Tech has participated in the Metro Seven basketball
conference for the past two years.

CGC sites negligence
BSM official says charges unfounded
By MARTHA WAGGONER
Allen Johnson, chairperson of the Black
Student Movement, said Monday that
charges of negligence in the handling of
BSM funds made by former Student Body
Treasurer Todd Albert are unfounded.
Albert froze BSM funds Friday night
because the group violated a CGC treasury
law prohibiting student organizations from
spending more money from a CGC
appropriated loan than the group maintains
as collateral in its unexpended balance.
In the Daily Tar Heel Monday, Albert
said, "The leaders of BSM knew of the loan
situation last year and should have known
about their spending for this year. Then it
seems like they didn't care. They haven't
brought in any money to pay back the loans,
but officially, $165."
Johnson said Albert's comments gave the
wrong impression of how BSM handled its
funds. "There was no haphazard spending of
money," he said. "There was a reason behind
every expense made."
Johnson said BSM has paid hack $900,,
substantially mote of the loan titan the $165
iv. J hv Aihtt
bobby best, bM treasurer, said he was
upset by Albert's implication that he had not
been doing his job. "I've been checking
regularly with Mrs. Sparrow, (director of
SAFO)," Best said. Horton said Sparrow
told him that Best had done an excellent job
as BSM treasurer.
. BSM was granted a $ 10,000 loan last fall.
The group has spent $2,334.31 of this loan
and has pending debts totaling $4,203.29.
This comes to $6,537.60. As of Friday, BSM
had $2,177.59 in its general surplus, which
brings BSM's imbalance against its loan to
Johnson said that $3,700 of this figure is
money requisitioned for the Kool and the
Gang concert held March 23. The BSM
ow ed $101.87 in January when its members
began planning Black Awareness Week.
After the week, BSM was $144.69 in debt.
BSM also loaned its choir $720, bringing the
total imbalance to $966.56.
Horton, Johnson and Best are counting
on the choir's repayment of the loan, $300
from a planned calendar sale and
uncollected money from awareness week to
pay the $966.56.
BSM olTicials claim the organization
. would not oe in debt il u had not incurred a
substantial loss from the concert.
The exact amount of the loss from the
concert is still unknown, but Johnson said he
is certain the loss was no greater than $2,500.
BSM was depending upon the concert to
help pay back its debts, Johnson said, but
only 275 tickets were sold.
BSM also was in violation of a CGC ruling
which prohibits the spending of loan money
after Feb. 20. Best said he understood that
any loan money was supposed to be
budgeted by Feb. 20, but that CGC gave
BSM the loan to pay for cultural activities,
including the concert.
The actual signing of the contract,
Johnson said, was delayed until after Feb. 20
because of contract negotiation problems.
Johnson said BSM would pay back as
much of the loan as possible by the May 15
loan deadline. "We're going to do the best we
can, given the time and resources we have,"
Johnson said BSM wants to work with
student government, "if they give us a chance
and stop some of these petty loopholes we
don't know anything about. If the people
who make the rules don't know, how ate we
suppose to know?"
Indian Awareness Week

Indians of Robeson County.
Ron Leith, teacher, administrator and
curriculum developer at the Red School
House in St. Paul, Minn., will speak on
"Alternative Education for Native
Americans," at 8 p.m. in 1 1 1 Murphy

Indian Awareness Week meets the
Carolina Indian Circle's objective to
promote Indian awareness at the
University and in the community, says
Janet Whitmore, a member of the circle.
It also attempts to correct the Hollywood
inspired stereotyped Indian headdress,
"We see the Indian dances in the pit not
as perpetuation of the Indian stereotype,
but as showing students something that is
unique to the Indian culture and
something that is common among all
Indian tribes." Whitmore said.
The Carolina Indian Circle, formed
three years ago by Lana Dial with the
help of the Campus Y, was begun
primarily as a social outlet for Indian
students, but has since developed
academic, recruitment and awareness
"We want people to say 'Yes, there are
Indians in North Carolina and on this
campus,' "said Keith Brewer, chief of the
circle. "It is just a matter of educating
people that we are here. We are not out to
prove that we are different, just that we
"Society today is full of different
cultures and ours isn't the predominant
one, but at least through programs like
Indian Awareness Week we can begin to
gain some recognition for our culture and
