(Last of a series)
On May 7, 1959, the Student
Legislature passed a bill re
quiring Men's Honor Council,
Women's Honor Council and
Student Council to allow any
defendant who desires a public
The action came following a
request of Steve Gershenson
that the press be present at his
Honor Council trial. He was on
trial for cheating on a chemis
try test on April 27.
Gershenson was reported by
Ed Sugarman to the professor,
Dr. J. P. Collman (neither told
Gershenson himself) who re
ported to Chairman Hugh Pat
terson. Gershenson submitted a re
quest in writing to Patterson
who told The Daily Tar Heel
that "all Honor Council trials
are closed to the public" and
that "members were sworn to
secrecy." He did admit that any
defendant is free to issue any
statement about his trial that
Patterson had ruled that only
one counsel for defence could
be present for the trial. Coun
cil passed an appeal that two
counselors (Norman B. Smith
and Curtis Cans) could be pre
sent. In addition t i the r"p rtd
being present, the . open trial
bill states that all stipulations
concerning secrecy and oaths of
restrictive nature in the three
councils' by-laws are "hereby
absolved in ca.-es where the de
fendant asks for a public trial."
Howard Iloiderness, vice
chairman of the council, stated
that if the trial began before
the bill reached the council, the
press would not be alowed to
enter the council room. The bill
did not make it soon enough.
Reporter Ron Shumate was de
nied entrance to the trial.
Gershenson was convicted and
placed on indefinite su pension
May 8, lflr.O. The jury deliber
ated an hour before reaching a
verdict, and the Council debat
ed 15 minutes before parsing
sentence. The case was appeal
ed to the Student-Faculty Coun
cil, but the Honor Council's de
cision was upheld.
Never Faces Accuser
The Daily Tar H.""d tory op
the trial stated that Gcrbhci..'-n
was drnied the right to face his
accuser. Subsequent investiga
tion revealed that in the case,
the test paper was the official
accuser and not a perron.
Gershenson was not able to
be prevent at the first presen
tation of the Attorney Gerer
al's staff member at his trial,
but it wcr.t on without him. The
defense counsel was present.
Curtis Gans said that neither
he nor the defendant had seen
the material evidence used a
gainst Gershenson except in the
excerpted form containing the
alleged incriminating evidence.
The council denied a request
by President Charles Gray that
the trial be held at a later time.
Reporters were auiiiitlcd la
an Honor Council trial for the
first time at the Joe Friedberg
trial May 11, 1959. Friedberg
had requested that a Daily Tar
Heel reporter be present. At

signed the open trial bill. Fried

Friedberg also pointed out
that an Honor Council court was
not the same as a criminal
court, and therefore could not
be bound by all the procedural
rules of a regular court."
Joe Friedberg was acquitted
May 14, 1959. Just before,
President Gray had signed the
cpen trial bill. Two ammend
ments had been added: one al
lowing the Daily Tar Heel to
have a reporter present if the
defendant wished, and the
other increasing the number of
reporters from one to two.
