Honor Code Gets Slim Majority Vote
A Klim majority of students
2.0 per rant to 47.4 per cent of
oters gave their okay to the Ore
011 honor code in WcdncHduy'B
cferendum, leaving the next step
indeeided until the code committee
neats Tuc-Hday afternoon.
However, it wax the consensus
f niemberM of the committee,
lHUO senate, administration, and
ampus political candidates con
acted by the Emerald that the
iiajmity obtained was insufficient

Irejjon. 't he committee has pre
riously stated that a fairly sub
Itantial majority would be neces
sary before It would ask the sen
ate to request the adoption by the
Of the 2027 valid votes, 1060
voted "yes” and 961 said "no" to
the statement: "I am in favor of
the adoption of the honor eode at
the University of Oregon.” The
2027 total valid vote is 51 per rent
of the latest spring term registra
tion figure, 3072 as of Tuesday.
Approximately ten ballots were
marked either both "yes" and "no"
or expressed indifference in some
way or another; these were thrown
Ballots were not turned ill for
some of the 10 am. closes in which
most voting was conducted but
voting at the Student Union booth,
the other method, was fairly brisk
during the 45 minutes the booth
was open.
Merv Hampton, chairman of the
senate honor code committee, HaifJ
his group will decide on what steps
to recommend at its meeting Tues
day, and will make its report to
the senate next Thursday. "I'm
very disappointed,” he said, "that
more Oregon students didn't feel
an honor code had merit enough
to warrant a trial period.”
Asked if he could express an
opinion as to the likely fate of
code, Hampton said the decision is
up to the committee.
Hampton, who is also ASUO
vice-president, stated, "I do not
believe, however, that the vote in
dicates that students would not
abide by and work for an honor
code, A "no” vote did not mean
that a student would fail to sup-1
port the honor code. Perhaps the
negative expressions were an indi
cation that many students feel we
are not yet ready for an honor
Here are the statmonts of other
officials and political candidates
contacted by the Emerald:
K. (i. Khbighausen, faculty mem
ber of the code commtitee and for-!
mer chairman of the group "I do I
not think that the percentage was I
} sufficiently large so that the sen
ate ought to petition the faculty
for the code's adoption. I am not
completely disappointed, however,
| since we have only been working
! six months. I hope that next year's
senate will approve the attempt to i
continue the program next year.
"It appears that a good many
students are skeptical. But it seern*r
that a good portion of the 48 per
cent voting against would not
cheat, but feel others would cheat
under the honor code The majority
is not decisive; it would be a mis
take to start the code on the.basif*
of such a slirn majority. But t
don't think we ought to quit.”
Don Collin, senator from the
junior class, who has opposed the
code, especially the committee's
report "The only thing I have
ever said was that the report wa»
inadequate, that it didn't prove
an honor code workable or applic
able at Oregon. The 'no' votes coubV
