Letter To The Editoi
On December 15th, 1791 the first Ten
Amendments to the Constitution were
ratified. They are known as the Bill of
Rights. Over the past 195 years the validity
and soundness of these Ten Amendments
have continuously been challenged. These
amendments, including the Fourth
Amendment guarantee us our rights as
citizens of the United States.
Approximately two weeks ago an inci
dent took place on Mars Hill College cam
pus which in my mind questions the validi
ty of the Fourth Amendment in relation to
the code of student conduct, and the
dominancy of the school administration.
The Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Con-
sitution guarantees to all citizens the right
to be secure in their persons, houses,
papers, and effects against unreasonable
searches and seizures; It also guarantees
that warrants shall be issued only upon
probable cause, that a particular crime has
been committed. This incident
concerns a student whose room was sear
ched. The student was not foretold that the
search would take place, nor was he pre
sent during the search. According to the
Constitution of the United States, and the
Code of Student Conduct of Mars Hill
College, the actions taken by those'
members of the administration were not
only a violation of a man’s rights as an
American citizen but also an obstruction
of justice.
Why?
First of all under the Fourth Amend
ment, students have a right to be free from
unreasonable searches and seizures
because they do not forfeit their constitu
tional rights merely because they are atten
ding school. Yes, even though the Supreme
Court has declined to rule on the validity
of searches and seizures made by school
officals, the acting persons in pursuit must
have probable cause.
What is probable cause?
Probable cause cannot be established
rumor alone. It must be based upon fa
and circumstances that justify the belie*
a law enforcement officer that a crimed
been committed or that incriminati)
evidence might be discovered. An S
formers tip must provide a description^ OVI

Secondly, under the Code of Stud*

Now why didn’t I think of that! For
those readers who are too young to
remember hippies, it should be told that
the word “hippie”, where peace is con
cerned, is positive. Those who were
teenagers and young adults during the
hippie era know that hippie friends: wore
way-out clothes that more than adequate
ly coverd their nakedness; wore flowers in
their hair (even the most masculine);
spoke freely of love; lived in peace with
each other; and sought a higher value
system for America than the one where
money rules supreme.
If I ever have problems, that I cannot
handle, on the Mars Hill College campus,
which is historically unlikely, I will call
one of my hippie friends to my rescue. I
still prefer banquets over bullets.
