Assembly Today
On Honor Code
Do you want an honor code at the University of Oregon?
If <-o. today's honor code Assembly in the Student Union ball
room may be of importance to you.
It not, the assembly—at 1 p.m.—may -till he of importance.
It you're not sure, the assembly and the coffee hour at 4 p.m.
in the SU Dads' lounge may be of
even more importance, with the
referendum being held Wednesday
This will be the only centra) dis
cussion of the honor code; orienta
tion groups are completing their
discussions of the code with living
organizations and other groups.
The Emerald is printing the honor
code committee report again to
day and the synopsis of a debate on
the code will be printed Wednes
The assembly today will end with
a question-and-answer period, and
the committee will be guests at
the coffee hour—which will be an
informal question pjeriod for stu
dents to continue asking about and
discussing the code.
Speakers at today's assembly
will include Merv Hampton, com
mittee chairman, and Jean Gould
committee member, who will dis
cuss what the code could mean to
Oregon Students.
E. G. Kbbighausen. faculty mem
ber of the committee will speak as
one faculty member: Director of
Student Affairs Donald M. Du
Shane will present a message from
W. C. Jones, acting University
president.»and will make remarks
on his own behalf; and Don Collin,
ASUO Senator, will speak against
the code.
ASUO President Bill Carey will
give introductory remarks and
moderate the question period.
The assembly will be held for all
students, Hampton said, but stu
dents who have not been contact
ed by orientation groups are espe
cially invited.
Code on Trial
Students will express their offi
cial opinion on the Gregor. honor'
code in the University-wide refer
endum at 10 a.m. Wednesday The
ballot will contain one issue: "I anv
in favor of the adoption cf the
honor code at the University of
Oregon Yes or No.'’
The vote will be held in 10 am.
classes at the first of the hour iiw*.
most cases. A voting booth v.hll bo
set up on the west terrace cf the
Student Union from 10 to 10:45
a.m. to enable students who *1®
not have 10 a.m. classes to veto
on the code.
The vote will be the basis cf de
Uerminir.g whether the adoption cf
an honor code at Oregon will be
requested. If a substantial major
ity of students express themselves*—
in favor of the code, the AS"UO
honor code committee will a s k the
Senate to request its adoption by
the faculty, according to Commit
tee Chairman Merv Hampton.
This would undoubtedly be ic
quested through the student disci
pline committee, which has dele
gated authority from the faculty,
Hampton said. •H*’ added that ho
■ presumed the discipline group
would require that the faculty as
j a whole make the decision as to
: adopting or rejecting the code.
A team of vote-takers will dis
tribute the one-question ballots to
I classes and the SU booth, ard wii^

NS A Prexy Urges Senate to Send Congress Delegation,
Bill Dentzer, president of the
National Student Association said
Monday while on campus, "If
you're at all interested in NSA, you
ought to at least send your student
body president or some other dele
gate to the national student con
gress this summer.”
Dentzer, who is touring the
Great Northwest area for NSA,
said financial restrictions are im
portant to a school but cost should
’-r ‘ 'v an obstacle to joining or
''"lending an observer if the orga
nization is deemed worthwhile.
(The ASUO Senate winter term re
pealed a motion to send an observ
er to the next congress because of
financial difficulties.)
Offers Members Much
And, the national president stat
ed, NSA can offer a member in
stitution all it can handle it is up
to the school to use it. No univer
sity can really judge whether it
ought to belong to NSA unless it
does send an observer, he asserted.
The congress this summer will be
held at Indiana University in
Bloomington, Ind.
• Cost of joining NSA for a college
of Oregon’s size is 75 dollars, he
■, .jiHid. Cost of sending a delegate to
the congress varies from about 100
dollars for one delegate to less
than that amount for each delegate
as more are sent.
A travel pool rebate is granted
for each delegate.
He suggested Oregon should also
send an observer to the regional
NSA conference in Washington in
May. The expense here, he said,
would be negligible.
Dentzer graduated in political
science from Muskingum college in
Ohio last year. National NSA
presidents must drop out of school
for their term as president, but
he will attend Woodrow Wilson
college at Princeton university
next year..
Arrived Monday
He arrived on campus Monday
morning- he left Boulder, Colo.,
national NSA headquarters, Sun
day night. He will tour colleges
and universities in Oregon, Wash
ington and some in Idaho mostly
non-member schools, discussing
prospects of joining NSA or send
ing congress observers. He will
tour most of the nation while NSA
The three fundamental activities
of the national organization illus
trate its worth, Dentzer pointed
out. These are:
1. A service organization plat
form for exchange for student
governments. NSA is a federation
of student governments: it does
not exist outside of them. Dentzer
said NSA helps student govern
ments on theory why they exist
on practice problems — how to
make programs effective and on
administrative and technical prob
2. The national student voice.
Two million college students ought
to be organized enabling them to
be heard on the national level.
Dentzer contended. He explained
that NSA can concern itself only
with national problems that affect
students "as students," not merely
as citizens. This would include
universal military training, he
said, but not general foreign pol
icy. NSA cannot take partisan po
litical stands, he added.
The Voice Abroad
3. The American student voice
abroad. Dentzer told of the activi
ties of the Inteinational Union of
Students. Communist - dominated
world student organization. This
group is "deadly effective," he said,
in its program of preaching the
Soviet line to students throughout
the world.
We need NSA, Dentzer empha
sized, to tell the students of the
world what Americans are really
thinking. Right now, he stated,
IUS is winning the student cold
war. He asserted that 99 per cent
of the unrest in the Middle East
had the IUS behind it.
Dentzer mentioned that he is
looking for students who can speak
Spanish or Portuguese and who are
••politically keen'1 to tour South
America or to act as guides lor
Latin-American students in Amer
ica this summer.
Membership Growing
XSA throughout the nation is
growing in membership slowly,
Dentzer stated. (It now has over
300 member schools.) Some schools i
drop out, but still more enter, he
said. Dentzer said the chief reason
for schools dropping out is that
they don't send delegates to the
national student congress and don't
utilize the benefits made available
by MSA.
"You don't get anything out of
XSA unless you put something in
unless you make sure of what is
available," he asserted,
i He pointed out that XSA is a
| federation of student governments
— and thus is an integral part of
J student life, not an added burden.
| Material from XSA is used by all
agents of student government,
j Dentzer explained, such as honor]
rode committees, and freshman*,
orientation groups. No new agen
cies are needed, he said.
Asked about charges made in*
Senate fall term when NSA veadp*
discussed, charges that it was dom
inated by radical elements Pent
zer pointed out the group's active- •
program against the efforts <►
1US. the attacks made on NSA by
IUS and the charges of "fascism’’
by radical elements coupled wi; V—
the charges of “communism" by
right-wing elements.
Initial Congress
At the first congress ir. 10*
Dentzer explained, there were somo
left-wing elements in NSA but
they were soon eliminated becaur®—
“schools just don't elect Commu
nist delegates". Opinions of mem
bers vary, he said, but evidence •
that NSA is definitely not Red cat***
be seen in the all-out attacks -o#*-'
IUS and the Communists on NSA.
It is this type of a Cornmunv't
program in the Middle East aru**
South America which is turning
the people against Americans be
cause the people don't know tho
facts, Dentzer stated. For this* -
reason, he pointed out, NSA must
be utilized to tell students of other
nations what Americans really at o
