USA PRESIDENTIAL ASPIRANTS SAY
'Not Supporting Honor Code...'
Ity Don Collin
It should bo dearly stated that I stand apart from the field of presi
dentlal candidates In that I am not actively helping the honor code ori
entation program. I have retrained because of a lack of supporting
evidence in the honor code report that would point out how the system
would achieve desired results.
hast Mur. 0 in the Senate I stated that the re
port failed to indicate what factors make for a
successful honor system at other schools and failed
further to indicate that theae factors exiat on the
University of Oregon campus.
Actually the report leaves the success of the
honor code to the wholehearted support of the stu
dents. The latest poll of 251 students showed that
82 per cent agreed with the principles of an honor
code as they understood them. Yet when asked
specifically about the Oregon situation, only 48 per
cent wanted to abolish proctoring and institute an
honor system. On the matter of cheating, 36 per cent
felt the honor code would have a neutral effect or
Increase cheating. These latter figures do not indi
cate wholehearted support.
lYihups I stand apart from the other candidates on the issue of an
all-campus primary. I worked In the Senate committee and will con
iine to work for the open primary. Only In this way will a more direct
democratic method be found in choosing candidates and lining up
political parties on political issues.
'We Need Honesty...'
By Jim Ifaycox
In point of service or experience or previous activities, I guess you
could ay as one person implied Friday that I am "inadequately pre
I ared" to run for anything but cover. If I thought that was true, and
J don't, I wouldn't have done this thing.
I think anybody who has a fair intelligence, who
ran speak in two-syllable words and who believes
■the ASUO president's job is important enough to
light for is probably qualified. That includes more
people than ever get to smell the roses.
And I think anybody who believes themselves
'•'da peoples choice" should know what the people
choose. By that, I mean some sort of platform.
I think if people realized upwards of $100 was
spent foolishly this year in the limited ASUO bud

now. 1 think they would agree the president and
ii:i secretary could get along with less money and

Sure, I am also for development of the MHlrace, and for getting pay
phones out of dorms, and for trying out an honor code (because no
one has yet proved haw it can hurt us to try it) and for a lot of things
. . that all boil down to this.
Any student government made up of people whose ideals go be
Lond the confines of voting in a block and attempts to keep the dormi
tories disorganized (because they could be the political rulers of the
campus If they choose to be) would be a good student government.
Any willing to try something new once in awhile (like NSA or the
1'iimary and presidential convention plan) would be all right. Any
government that worried more about doing a job than staying in
bower next year would be fine.
/Ujd finally, any governing body that professed honesty (who
doesn't ?) and then went on to prove it.. . that one would be best of
ill. And that's what I think about most when the conversation turns
:o politics and government.
Honesty is the most overworked word in the English language, but
et’s usedt again. For we need it right now worst of all.
'Cut the President's Salary...'
By Herb Cook
I believe that experience, activities, and scholarship should be the
riteria of selecting the student body president instead of party propa
The ASUO budget is one of the most debated and contested topics.
licit I believe the ASUO Senate should sponsor a
fund-raising project to help defray the expense of
the student body, similar to the one two years ago
: that Barry Mountain proposed, which was called
"Sports Night.’’ It was not too successful but I
believe he did not start planning for it until too
late in the year. Also, I would welcome a cut in the
student body president's salary, if I were elected, as
one way of cutting down the expenses.
I would work wholeheartedly to bring about a
closer working arrangement with the Student
Union board. I realize that the two groups (ASUO
Senate and Student Union board) are independent of
one another, but still on some projects they could
be more closely knit.
I am 100 per cent in favor of the honor code,
which I will help to promote because I believe it will benefit all the
The work on the Millrace will possibly be started this year or during
summer vacation. If the bonds are approved by the city council, and
they do not provide enough capital for the Millrace flow and Millrace
park, the students should help to defray the additional costs.
The deplorable telephone situation in the dorms should be pushed
.and given as much publicity to gain their objectives as did the frater
nities and sororities. This should be the first step of the ASUO Senate
next year if the pay phones are not taken out this year,
i The freshman class election should be held fall term, but late in the
term to enable the freshmen to get better acquainted with the possible
I believe all the students should be represented; therefore, the
married students should have a seat on the Senate. Also the traffic
court should be given or assigned more tasks.
I am also in favor of the fraternities' adopting "Hell to Help Week”
in their Initiations.
May God help the best man win and the selecting be made on his
