There have tieen many Instan

have been charged with some
sort of violation and they have
been treated as students com

the position they hold on campus.
This isn’t a question of letting
the campus "stars" off easy. If a
rumpus "star" cheats, why should
he not receive the same punish

AMBERS: You are stating a
position Ideally, and ideally that
would be the ease. But it hasn’t
been the case in other institu
tions at other |lmes.
Men Aren't Gods

men were gods this Is the way it
would work. I’m still unconvinced
that men are gods. Men are mor

assuming that human nature is
basically bad. We’re assuming
it’s basically good.
NEUBER: I’m assuming that
human nature Is both hud and
good, neither basically hail or
basically good hut hud and good
according to circumstances and
according to Individuals.
HAMPTON: The progress our
society has made demonstrates
tiiat man is basically good and
not that man is basically bad or
good and/or both. I can’t sec
how any progress could have
been made under your assump
NEUBEK: How do you explain
all the unpleasant occurrences
that have gone with progress, if

AMBEItS: Ah far as I’m con

will cheat is not a matter of his
intelligence per sc but It is a
matter of motivation.
If he is hanging on by a thread
at staying in the Institution und
he wants to stay, he will use any
method to stay, The same holds
true if he is In the honor roll
bracket and is living on a schol
arship because of his honor toll
standing and sees it chance that
he will lose his living by being ^
li ft off the honor roll.
(■Ol'I.I): I agree that some
peopte are going to cheat In
each bracket. However, we should
keep In mind that one of the
honor code’s objectives Is to cut
down on cheating.
What we are trying to instill is
a pint and a tradition of honor,

Use Any Method
We ll never know until we try

proven that spirit can be instilled.
