Cheating Forms Basis
Of .Campus Discussions

At campuses all over the coun-
try, there is increasing concern
about-cheating on examinations;
the relativemerits of proctoring
and the honor system are fiercely
and sometimes inconclusively de-
The problem is usually met by
the time-honored college method
-setting up a committee. Stu-
dents as well as faculty have been
active in trying to minimize dis-
honesty, though no system has yet
been able to cut it down satis-
A NEW REGIME won approval
at the University of Southern Cal-
friifornia, where three judiciary
committees were recognized as the
official bodies to deal with cheat-
ing: the men's and women's judi-
ciary councils and a faculty com-
mittee on student activities. Cases
will be tried before the student
committees, and recommendations
made to the faculty.

who will be available for appear-

pus organizations or private per-
sons will be able to pick enter-
tainers from the list.
Gulantics-goers will get a big
dose of variety with the sched-
uled list of those who will try
their talent.

Another new policy was adopted
at Pittsburgh University: first of-
fenders are given a failing grade,
two-time cheaters are dismissed
from the university.
At the University of Hawaii
rules for taking examinations
were announced by the adminis-
tration: any signs of communica-
tion between students will be
checked with disciplinary action
by proctors; no borrowing of pen-
cils, erasers or paper; all books
to be left outside test area.

ARGUMENTS in favor of the
honor system were printed in the
student newspaper at the Univer-
sity of Colorado. The writer said
"every test in school represents a
minor crisis; every minor crisis
successfully met strengthens an
individual's ability to meet major
The honor system, he wrote,
"would emphasize positive hab-
its of test-taking," and by de-
veloping a healthy attitude to-
ward problems would cut down
on cheating.
Large schools like the Univer-
sity of Virginia, the University of
South Carolina, and Stanford
University have found the system
effective, he said, even though in
Texas and California it was vot-
ed out as unworkable.

OPINION WAS divided on the
issue at Geogre Washington Uni-
versity; some students felt that
the honor system "not only would-
n't work, it would be detrimental
. .. A few students cheating un-
der the honor system would raise
the class average sowhigh that
others could not keep up."
"College students as a rule
are in college to learn something
. . An honor system among
adult students is certainly nat-
ural," another student said.
Other comments were that the
system "wouldn't make any dif-
ference because cheating is a hard
habit to break," and that "the
honor system should be adopted
because . . . this is a college not
a remedial school."

STUDENT government was
working on the question at Purdue
University. An informal survey of
the Student Assembly revealed
that the members by an over-
helming majority thought the
present rules-a modified honor,
system-were unsatisfactory. {
By a 37-21 vote they favored
"a true honor system" with more
reliance on students' integrity.
Recommendations from the stu-
dent committee asked the faculty
to "remove the intent to enforce
honesty forcibly" and "place the
student on his honor."

U' Fresh Air
Camp Tag Day
To Be May 4
Tag Day for the Fresh Air Camp
will return May 4 with a brigade
of buckets that will dot every
corner of the campus.
Primary purpose of the Uni-
versity-owned Fresh Air Camp is
to provide a summer camp for
those boys that no other camp
will accept because of their bad
behavior record. The camp at-
tempts to aid these boys adjust
to the society they live in.
But the camp is also extensively
used for recreation purposes by
University student groups during
the winter months. A total of $16,-
000 has been donated already by
campus groups, a large share from
sororities and independent women.
