Men, Women Clash
;x Panel discussion on the topic
"Should Duke Have an Honor Sys
tem?" in Duke University's York
Chanel Sunday mornine climaxed a
clash between men's and women's stu
dent governments over the honor sys
tem question at Duke.
Richard Rigsby Connar, last year's
president of the Men's Student Gov
ernment Association, presided over
formal discussion and open forum
among a great part of the student
body. Speaking against adoption of
an honor system was Jimmie Walker,
men's student government vice-president,
and Audrey Bracken of the
Women's College Judiciary Council
debated for the system. .
Walker revealed to the Daily Tar
Heel that in denouncing the Honor
Code he described a "scandal" which
occurred at Carolina five years ago
"that would not liave happened under
strict supervision." Miss Bracken re
vealed to the Duke student body, the
successful methods employed at the
University of Virginia.
Duke maintained an honor system
until five years ago, when the wo
men's government requested its ter
mination because of "regrettable in
"Stimulated" was the word Walker
used to describe Duke's reaction to the
Sunday Chapel discussion. "Students
seemed to feel that this was a matter
to be looked into further."

MOSCOW, (Tuesday) The

The Russians clung stubbornly to
their defenses since a defeat from Zyma

Out of the melee that was business in Chapel Hill last week
end are emerging reports of retail profiteering, and although alle
gations checked by the Daily Tar Heel have produced but scanty
evidence, reliable sources report jacked-up prices to men in uni
form, discriminations in beverage charges.
Twenty-five thousand people swarmed this "one street village"
bought out restaurants, gleaned but
ton venders of their wares, gave town
merchants their busiest day of the
year last Saturday.
Strong rumors indicated that vil
lage restaurants altered prices, levied
flat rates on ,f ood, placed all com
modities on a strictly a la carte basis
and increased table d'hote prices.
Saying they "needed higher prices
to pay extra workers" ' a Franklin
Street drug store charged students
$.15 for beer, men in uniform 2& for
the same beer, a soldier reported. No
additional employees over normal con
ditions were working in the store, a
local informant said.
Further allegations hinted that lo
cal restaurants substituted more ex
pensive menus when the rush began,
boosted flat prices on meals, and rais
ed tariffs on a la carte orders.
This was flatly, denied by one mer
chant and others refused to comment,
leaving the entire matter up to the
Merchants association. Same source
that denied the statement said that
"some . places always raise prices on
the afternoon of a football game."
A student said that "a friend of
mine told me" that a soldier was
charged double price for an article of
regular and standard value. -
Checking for the Daily Tar Heel,
the staff "of the Xaw department said
that there is no law controlling price
raising either in the Fair Trade Prac
tices act or in legislation concerning
the national defense emergency.
Local United Service Organization
Chairman Harry Comer said that only
one report (the above) has reached
him. Minimizing the significance of
the reports, Comer said that the local
Merchants association will meet in
executive committee Thursday and
discuss the matter.
"Violators will be brought into lino
by the association," Comer said, "be
