would make the writing of a bad ,
check an Honor Council offense.
Tom Shetley, University account
ant, noted in a recent interview
that he had handled $28,904 in
"rubber" checks since June 30.
The total includes checks cashed
through Lenoir Hall, the Book Ex
change, the cashier's office, the
Bull's Head Bookshop, the laun
dry, the electricity and water of
fice and the Monogram Club.
Shetley said, however, that
through the efforts of Don Lassi
ter, student check representative,
all except $731 has been collected.
That sum is not yet deemed "un
collectable." The policy of the University in
handling checks returned for insuf
ficient funds is first to re-deposit
the check, stated Shetley. If the
check bounces a second time, the
student representative informs the
person by letter. Failure to clear
the matter up brings a telephone
call. If the student ignores this
warning, stop orders are placed
on his grades.
Shetley noted that stop orders
bring quick results. He comment

He was "frankly in favor of
making it (failure to honor a re
turned check) an offense that
would bring the student before the
Honor Council." However, he al

take action that would be put on
a student s permanent record.
W. R. Cherry, comptroller of j
the Bank of Chapel mil, leels that
there are two types of students
who bounce checks. There are
the "irresponsible students" who
fail to take care in balancing their
check books and the "borrowers
who knowingly write checks with
out funds to back them in an effort
to obtain money to tide them over
a big weekend or for cash to go.

William Long, Dean of Men,
commented that he has found that
it is the irresponsible students whoj

to work through the student check
commission in these cases.
"The University does not enter
the picture except in cases where
it is felt that the student is being
elusive," he stated.
To alleviate the situation, Long
urges each student to have "a per

Although merchants stated that
they were hesitant to take such

Paul A. Robertson, justice of

how many bad check cases he
handles a month, commenting that
there were "too many."
He stated that under the present
system, the students "got off with

Gives Case To WRC
The Women's Council, last week,
dismissed a case against a defend
ant charged with violation of the
Campus Code and referred her to
the House Council for returning to
her dormitory after closing hours.
The defendant, who pleaded guil
ty as charged, had gone to Wash
ington for the weekend and had
signed out for midnight, Sunday.
She said that she had been held up
by traffic on her return to Chapel
Hill and had called in to notify
her dormitory that she would be
She arrived at her dorm at 1:05,
one hour and five minutes late.
According to the rules of the Wom
en's Residence Council, if a girl
returns to her residence more than
one hour late, she is to be tried by
the Women's Council rather than
the House Council, which hears
cases involving less than one hour.
However, the WRC has another
rule applying to the House Council
which says that a girl has ten
cumulative "late minutes" before
she can be tried for coming in
afier closing hours.
- Therefore, the Women's Council
said that they would subtract the
girl's ten "late minutes" from her
charge of returning one hour and
a wv.?ti wallet has been lost.
