Increase In Fees, IS on -Resident Tuition Approved 

A general increase in fees and 
non-resident tuition at Mary 
Washington College has been ap- 
proved for the 1968-69 session. 

The increases as recommended 
by College Chancellor, Dr. 
Grellet C. Simpson, will amount 
to $135 for Virginia residents 
and $185 for out-of-state students. 

Virginia residents now pay $1,- 
200; next year they will pay 
$1,335. Non-resident students pay 
$1,850; nest year they will pay 

The overall increase consists 
of an additional $85 for general 
college fees, bringing these from 
$515 to $600; a $25 adjustment in 
the residential (room) fee, from 
$325 to $350; a $25 change in the 
board fee, from $333 to $358; 
and a $50 raise in out-of-state 
tuition from $650 to $700. 

In recommending the changes, 
Dr. Simpson said "that despite 
the substantial and very encour- 
aging support of the College by the 
Commonwelath and the Governor, 
it is necessary to increase the 
student fees in several areas in 
order to keep these self-sus- 
taining. This is required not only 
in the auxiliary enterprises (pri- 
marily board and room rent) but 
also in the area of the educational 
program of the College and its 
related and sustaining opera- 

Dr. Simpson also noted that 

"no one wishes to increase the 
cost of education, but in all fair- 
the fees at Mary Wash- 

ington, in terms of the quality 
of education and facilities pro- 
vided, are still quite modest." 

Members of the Board ot Visitors meet with 
Chancellor Simpson to discuss college fees. 

Under the new constitution, the 
Joint Council has been replaced 
by the Judicial Review Court, and 
the Judicial Council is no longer 
campus -wide but a body particu- 
lar to each dorm. Two seniors, 
one junior, one sophomore, and 
one freshman will constitute the 
Review Board which, as its name 
implies, will serve as an appel- 
late court for cases tried in the 
House Judicial Councils. The 
dorm Council will be responsible 
for handling all cases . Only in an 
unprecedented case, or in a 
judgement where the violator 
feels she has been too severely 
penalized, will the case be taken 
to the Campus Review Board. 

Pam Hogan, a candidate for one 
of the Senior positions, as well 
as Judy Weiner, Junior candidate, 
Kathy Lewis, Sophomore candi- 
date, and Barbara Greenlief, 
Senior candidate all feel that 
this system will eliminate from 
the Board's agenda the petty 
cases which at present are con- 
stantly being dismissed from Ju- 
dicial for lack of importance as 
well as eliminating the rigid sys- 
tem of automatic punishments 
which are now in use. The exist- 
ing punishments, they feel, should 
be applied flexibly, depending 
not solely upon the nature of the 
offense but also upon the cir- 
cumstances involved; cases 
handled by the Judicial Council 
to date should be used as guide- 
lines for judgements in the com- 
ing years. Flexibility, according 
to the girls, should be the key to 
the situation. Gloria Shelton, 
Senior candidate, and Pam Hud- 
son, Sophomore candidate, also 
feel that guidelines are neces- 
sary and will be obtained from 
previous experience. 

Also runningfor the sophomore 
position are Barbara Hasko, 
Mary Cutting, and Eleanor Tyng. 
Only two girls are contesting 
the junior representative's place: 
Lynne Vandervoort and Judy 
Wiener. There are three rising 
seniors besides Pam Hogan, 

Gloria Shelton, and Barb Green- 
lief who are running for the 
Court: Lou Matthews, Carol 
Johnson, and Karen Kilgore. 

Most of the candidates agree 
that the role of the Campus 
Review Board will be to create 
an "efficient and equitable" sys- 
tem and to help the dorms to 
do the same thing. 

Lou Matthews, praised the au- 
tonomy of the dorms which the 
new system provides. She, like 
Eleanor Tyng, Gloria Shelton, and 
Barb Hasko, feels it is a definite 
improvement over the old system 
and will prove to be much more 
efficient. Lou also mentioned that 
she felt it would be effective in 
curbing petty misdemeanors. 

Lynne Vandervoort feels that 
not only should Freshman Coun- 
sellors have extensive training in 
Handbook counselling so that they 
might administer the same type 
of training to their counsellees, 
but every other class should un- 
dergo a refresher course each 
year. Barbara Hasko was as 
enthusiastic as Kathy Lewis who 
added that it would make students 
aware of all changes in the hand- 
book; Pam Hogan had the same 
reaction. She also feels that stu- 
dents should be made aware of the 
fact that she is bound by State 
and Federal laws and what these 
laws are (i.e., drinking, drugs). 
Both she and Kathy feel that 
each student should clearly know 
what is expected of her as soon 
as she arrives on the campus 
if not before. 

The question was raised at the 
buzz session whether the Re- 
view Board should have the right 
to notify the parents of a girl 
who is campused. Opinion was 
divided on this, but those who 
are pleased with the growing 
autonomy of dorm councils felt 
that the matter should be left to 
the girl to be resolved or, at 
most, a question for the dorm 
council to decide. The others 
felt that it was unquestionably 
the job of the Campus Review 
Board to do so under virtually 

Voice Your Choice 

"My society, as I experience it, is fundamentally 
bad. Not all bad, not even mostly bad, but funda- 
mentally bad: deep in the habits of everyday life, 
some things are upside down; in the routine, the 
apparently obvious and. necessary ways in which 
we structure a day's time, see and hear things, 
shelter ourselves, greet our fellow men, try to 
get things done, plan and commit our activities, 
move from place to place, define and guard against 
catastrophes, feel and act out fears and hopes - 
we are making mistakes. Mistakes that leave our 
daily lives constricted, listless, and confused;

do not recognize them as mistakes - or even as 
choices which we might have made differently - 
for the most part we do not notice them at all. 

But is it possible for us to encounter the

necessary. We see how we live, and we can 
change it, when we encounter an alternative to it:

Ken Winter 

The significant point explicit in this quotation is 
that our American way of life is out of joint. We 
have made grave mistakes in many areas of our 
socio-political endeavors as the most cursory 
perusal of a newspaper will illustrate. The ques- 
tion is whether we are willing to admit these 
mistakes vis a vis decision making and further, 
whether or not we intend to correct them. The 
challange which faces the college community per se 
and, indeed, our entire American society is to 
actively contest the indiscriminate policies of our 
leaders and to work towards the ideological and 
actual vindication of our corrupted system. 

Choice '68 provides a means through which we, 
as students, can meet this challenge. It serves as 
a vehicle by which we can express our opinions 
about the existing order. The question now be- 
comes, not what can I do, but rather, will I chose 
to do it? We have been given a multitude of varying 
alternatives - each of which can profoundly affect 
our lives. It is up to each of us to decide how to 
exercise this powerful podium, and it can make a 
difference. The BULLET staff strongly urges you 
to support Choice '68. You have the choice and you 
have been given the voice - use them.

Dear Students, 

Imperative change, skepti- 
cism, rebellion — these are con- 
cepts which have invaded our 
campus and with which we must 
reckon. Even the Honor System 
have been touched by them. 

When choosing to run for Honor 
President, I felt that I had to 
show the student body that from 
a deep understanding of the Ho- 
nor System, I too had new ideas 
to improve our system and 
new challenges to test it. My 
platform, entitled the MAC Pro- 
gram, ser es as evidence of my 
dedication to sort out the weak- 
nesses and fallibilities of our 
Honor System, to establish the 
strengths and to present to you a 
sound and dignified formulation 
of the Hnor System. Please come 
to the Buzz Session and ques- 
tion me on my program and my 

It is more important to know 
of another side of me. This side 
believes in the honesty and inte- 
grity of MWC students, the in- 
tegrity that strives toward the 
all encompassing, highest ideal of 
Honor. As we question and change 
our Honor System, I do not want 
us to lose our faith in Honor. 


Mary Ann Crandell 

Dear Editor, 

As a candidate for Honor Coun- 
cil President I would like to make 
the entire student body aware 
of the Honor Code and realize 
the importance of keeping it ef- 
fective. Any school, or any Ho- 
nor Code, is only as strong as 
the personal integrity and res- 
ponsibility of the students. 

I support: 1) a revision of the 
honor plaque to eliminate legal 
loopholes, wordiness, and ambi- 

2) a more intensified training 
program for Honor Counselors, 
giving them concrete examples to 
give to the freshmen. 

3) an announcement made at 
the end of each semester as to 
the total number of dismissals for 
honor offenses and each offense 
to serve as a reminder that stu- 
dents are being punished for 
honor offenses. 

4) encouraging each professor 
on the first day of class to dis- 
cuss the Honor Code as he inter- 
prets it and applies it to his 

5) an advisory committee of 
students to protect the accused 
student from improper pro- 
cedure, and to insure that there 
is sufficent evidence to warrant 
a trial. 

6) personal contact between the 
Honor President and the student 
body (eg., answering any ques- 
tions Freshmen may have at their 
House meetings). 

I believe our Honor System is 
one of the most vital institutions 
on campus. I believe in it as 
I believe in the personal moral 
integrity of the students which 
makes it effective. The Honor 
System must change with the 
times, but it needs the active in- 
terest and support of the en- 
tire student body to make the 
right changes. 


Chris Phillips 

Dear Fellow Students: 

It has been said that the whole 
is greater than the sum of all 
its parts. The controversial parts 
of our honor system must be 
alleviated, but the basic concept 
of our system - honor - must be 
preserved. It is for this reason 
that I have accepted the challenge 
of running for Honor Council 


One facet of our Honor System 
that seems to be currently under 
question is that of intent. Should 
the Honor Council judge intent? 
at present the honor plaque states 
that the Honor Council is un- 
able to take either character or 
intent into consideration. I feel 
this clause has been inserted for 
the Honor Council's protection. 
If it were stated that the Council 
judged intent, it would often re- 
sult in pitting the word of the ac- 
cused against that of the Council. 

Alleviating that intent clause 
from the plaque is not remedy. 
I pro pose instead a more exact 
definition of such terms as breach 
of honor, lying, stealing, and part- 
icularly plagiarism. There 
should be an entire section devo- 
ted to an elaboration of this per- 
tinent problem. As a supple- 
ment to the style manual, the 
Honor Council should publish a 
booklet containing a complete 
definition of plagiarism and ex- 
amples greater understanding on 
the part of the students would 
lessen the possibility of uninten- 
tional offenses. 

As former summer Honor 
Council President (1967) and as 
an honor counselor, myself, I 
see certain weaknesses in the 
counselling program. I recom- 
mend earlier selection of honor 
counselors for two reasons: (1) 
to select the most qualified coun- 
selors, (2) and to provide spring 
training for them. These coun- 
selors should not merely serve 
several weeks in the fall, but 
he readily available for con- 
sultation throughout the entire 

Honor counselling should not 
only apply to freshmen, but to 
the entire student body. The in- 
troduction of honor counselors 
into mixed residence halls could 
revive interest in the honor 
system. To insure continuity, 
more effective orientation of se- 
cond semester and day students 
is needed. The Honor Council 
President, if possible, should 
be present during summer school 
to see that a firm understanding 
is instilled in the incoming fresh- 

Change is under way; it must 
continue. In addition to support- 
ing recent proposals for change 
in the structure and interpre- 
tation of the system, I submit 
the above proposals in an effort 
to promote understanding and 
preserve our honor system. 
Laura Tee Johnson 
Candidate for Honor Council 

Dear Editor, 

Acceptance of the Honor 
System at Mary Washington im- 
plies on the part of each indivi- 
dual a 1 commitment not merely 
to meaningless idealistic ab- 
stractions, but a responsibility 
and a determination to create 
a vital working code of honor in 
our college community and in 
ourselves. We Place our confi- 
dence in Mary Ann Crandell's 
genuine concern in interpreta- 
tion of this system. 

This concern is most clearly 
apparent in her willingness to 
establish an open forum of stu- 
dent opinion concerning both the 
mechanics and the principles of 
our Honor System. Her affirma- 
tion of students as the "essen- 
tial aspect of the Honor System" 
indicates her belief that students 
must demonstrate their aware- 
ness of its significance by ac- 
tively participating in re-evalua 
tion and clarification of its goals. 

More importantly, she is 

suggesting that "re-dignifying" 
the code of honor, is essential 
for its complete acceptance; and 
that this requires analysis, not 
skeptical rejection, of its most 
cherished ideals, and should be 
the task with which we whole- 
heartedly concern ourselves. 
Mary Ann is sincerely interest- 
ed and enthusiastic about improv- 
ing our college community. 

As Hoor Council President 
she promises a new look at a 
time-honored tradition. She of- 
fers us the opportunity to ex- 
press ourselves as an integral 
part of our Honor System; in- 
spires us to achieve a worth- 
while contribution to its un- 
derstanding; and challenges each 
individual to become alive, res- 
ponsible, and aware.

Dear Editor, 

We would like to voice our 
support for Miss Laura T. John- 
son for Honor Council Presi- 
dent for 1968-69. In view of 
her direct work with the Honor 
Council as the Representative 
during the 1967 Summer Ses- 
sion, we feel that she is best 
qualified for this job. Her sin- 
cere belief in and support of our 
Honor System was further demon-; 
strated this past fall, when she 
helped to lead the training ses- 
sions for honor counsellors. We 
feel that her enthusiasm and 
willingness to work make her the 
best candidate and we urge sup- 
port for Miss Johnson as Honor 
Council President.

Dear Editor, 

I recently read the article 
of Dr. Fickett in the Bullet, and 
his comment on the educational 
system in India. Dr. Fickett im- 
plied that the present system of 
education in India is neither 
changing nor progressing and 
is merely "an ossification of the 
British system". I was born and 
raised in India and having studi- 
ed under the system of education 
of which Dr. Fickett speaks, I 
would like to point out that I 
think this system is in no way 
static or even behind that of 
any other part of the world. On 
the contrary, it runs parallel to 
the British educational system, 
with a considerable amount of in- 
terest being taken in the con- 
stant exchange of ideas and inno- 
vations in education between the 
two countries. 

As for the "memorization of 
factual material", I will say that 
it is true, but this, in no way, 
makes the educational program 
an "intellectual straight jacket". 
As data is not a defeat in the 
system but a unique method of 
British education which pro- 
vides the student with a thorough, 
basic understanding of his sub- 
ject, creating in him a strong 
foundation with which he can

Wide Range Of Opportunities For Student Involvement Offered At MWC 

We didn't know at all; 
We didn't see a thing; 
You can't hold us to blame. 
What could we do? 
It was a terrible shame, 
But ye can't bear the blame. 
Oh no! not us, we didn't know.

Is this your excuse for the 
rioting, for the looting, for the 
tragedy disgracing our nation? 
In the light of history the crime 
of a burned capital rests equal- 
ly as heavy on your shoulders 
as those of the individual carry- 
ing a stereo past the television 

"What could we do?" Plenty. 
And you must do it now before 
the whole country explodes in 
flame. You can start right here 
on the Mary Washington campus 
by working on one of the newly 
formed committees for civil 
rights. Miss Finnegan is in 
charge of a scholarship fund, 
Miss Clark — admissions policy, 
Mr. Fingerhut — faculty policy. 

Miss Fisher — staff policy, and 
Mr. Bernstein — curriculum. 
These committees need student 
help to function effectively. If 
you haven't the time," you can 
contribute to the Martin Luth- 
er King Scholarship Fund. 

You can help children by work- 
ing with Carol Chase, the Pres- 
byterian Campus worker, at Ann 
Hammerick House. Several mem- 
bers of the faculty and faculty 
wives are working with Negro 
leaders in Fredericksburg on 
the idea of establishing a day 
care center. This would not only 
found better relations, but also 
enable mothers to work and sup- 
plement their income. In the near 
future students will be needed 
to help with the research neces- 
sary to make this plan a reality. 

Another opportunity to work 
with children presents itself 
through the YWCA Tutorial Pro- 
gram, in which students from 
Walker Grant are tutored in their 
weaker subjects by MWC stu- 
dents. If you are interested in 

this program, contact Exa Motes, 
ext. 510. 

In the near future the Human 
Relations Council of Fredericks- 
burg will be starting a door-to- 
door petition for Open Houseing. 
They may need students for cir- 
culation, but you will definitely be 
needed for tabulation, publicity, 
etc. If you are interested in fu- 

ture work with the Human Rela- 
tions Council, contact Barbara 
ext. 485. 

If you are a sociology or psy- 
chology major, you can help Dr. 
Carter in establishing a team to 
check on civil liberties in court 
to determine exactly where dis- 
crimination exists. 

These are just a few of the 

very available programs for 
NOW. There are many in your 
city or town which desperately 
need volunteers for summer. If 
all the words of praise for Dr. 
King merely lie on their print- 
ed pages, then they are a huge 
sham of hypocrisy. It is time 
to cease speaking and begin work- 

Student Voices C oncern Over King 9 s Death 


The death of Dr. Martin Lu- 
ther King was not only a big 
shock, but also a great loss to 
me. I thought of his children, 
wife and other close relatives. 
I prayed that God would touch 
their hearts and give them the 
strength to endure the sorrow that 
the loss of a loved one so dear 
must have brought, for a father, 
a husband and a son is gone 
as well as the Black Messiah. 
May they find comfort in the fact 

that he gave his life for the 
cause of freedom. 

I was convinced that our coun- 
try was in a sorry and deplorable 
state. How many men must give 
their lives for the cause of free- 
dom? How many more? When 
will the time come when op- 
pressed people will have equal- 
ity? How much more do we have 
to take? What must we do? Bui 
wallowing in self pity doesn't 
solve the problem, it doesn't an- 
swer the above questions and it 
doesn't bring back Dr. King. 

Senator Robert Kennedy Runs For Presidency "To Seek New Policies 


The lights begin to twinkle from 

the rocks: 
The long day wanes: the slow 

moon climbs: the deep 
Moans round with many voices. 

Come, my friends, 
'Tis not too late to seek a newer 


Push off, and sitting well in 

order smite 
Of all the western stars until I 


The sounding furrows; for my 

purpose holds 
To sail beyond the sunset, and

This verse prefaces "To Seek 
A Newer World," by Senator 
Robert Kennedy, in which he dis- 
cusses his position on the prob- 
lems of youth, race, the city, 
Alliance for Progress, nuclear 
control, and Vietnam. 

If we agree with Senator Ken- 
nedy that "this country is on a 
perilous course" and that 
changes are necessary, then can 
we label a man who has accepted 
this challenge and offered his 
candidacy as a choice for the 
American voters, an opportun- 
ist? Sen. Kennedy announced his 
candidacy in March saying, "I 
run to seek new policies - poli- 

cies to close the gaps between 
black and white, rich and poor, 
young and old, in this country 
and around the world." The vot- 
er's choice would be better based 

on an examination of the issues 
and the various candidates posi- 
tions and proposed policies, than 
shallow labels and other super- 
ficial criteria, whichdo not char- 

acterize an educated choice.

urgent domestic crisis involving

ter how small. Those of us who

consideration, must fan our flame

Honor Council Nominees 










(Editor's note: The following 
questions were asked at a taped 
BULLET press conference and 
were answered by the first three 
candidates spontaneously. Mags 
Noll had seen the questions pre- 
viously and responded privately 
after she entered the race the 
following day.) 

1. Do you think Honor Counsel- 
ling needs to be made more 

A. Crandell 

1. I have five points concerning making 
honor counselling more effective. First 
point is that it should not be taught as one 
friend to another. I want the honor counsel- 
lors to be teachers, to have the status and 
respect of an instructor. Second, I would 
mores. If we can tap the energy and 
resources of the rising sophomores, honor 
counselling will be more effective. 
As I said in my platform, I want 
honor counselling to be the "in" thing to 
do and to do well in your sophomore year. 
My third point is having the honor counsel 
test, not to be confused with theSGA hand- 
book test because the freshmen seem to 
onfuse the two. When I gave SGA hand- 
book tests this year, I found a lot of 
answers given by the freshmen were an- 
swers which applied to the honor council. 
Joint council, judicial council and the 
honor council are extremely mixed up. 
This could be due to the SGA handbook 
which puts honor council under the title 
of judicial council, and I think this should 
be completely separate. This would clarify 
quite a bit. My fourth point is that honor 
counselling should be longer. The fresh- 
men are under such a strain during the 
first week of school, all during orienta- 
tion, that is a little too much for them 
to grasp. There is a lot of fear for fresh- 
men involved with the honor system and I 
think this is intensified by the short time 
of honor counselling. Incoming freshmen 
should know that this is a revolution in. 
our honor system and that they should 
become involved in it and wrapped up in 
it; that they should accept our honor sys- 
tem, but should also look for its ambigui- 
ties and inadequecies. My fifth point is 
that as it is traditional to sent out a let- 
ter to the incoming freshmen at the be- 
ginning of the year telling them that we 
have an honor system. This letter asks 
them to talk this over with their parents 
and I don't believe this is correct. I think 
the honor system belongs to the youth and 
to the students and it should be a student 
to student discussion. It should be Mary 
Washington student to Mary Washington 

2. Yes, I believe in an absolute honor 
system. We all know when we are com- 
mitting an honor offense. We know if we 
are stealing a carton of milk or stealing 
a nickel or if we are borrowing a carton 
of milk or borrowing a nickel. We know 
when we are plagiarizing. Our conscience 
knows this. If we know when we are com- 
mitting an honor offense then our honor 
system should be absolute. Within this 
absolute honor system, however, we should 
incorporate two things. One is complete 
understanding by the student body. If you 
don't under stand the Honor System then you 
can't uphold it. The second thing is pro- 
tection for the individual student. This pro- 
tection should be able to weed out cases 
where an honor offense is not committed: 
where the student is borrowing a carton 
of milk and intends to replace it, where 
the student is plagiarizing due to improper 
professor instruction and lack of what the 
professor expects. 

3. The part of our honor system that is 
confidential is the trial, the evidence pre- 
sented in the trial, and the student who 
is accused. There is another aspect of 
our honor system which is and should 
not be confidential. This is our honor 
plaque, the revision of it, and hopefully, 
what I propose, an honor constitution. I 
believe that students should be actively 

effective? If so, what ideas do 
you propose? 

I. Do you feel that an absolute 
Honor System, such as the one 
we allegedly have now, is va- 

so much of their work is confi- 
dential. Do you think this is good, 
or, if not, what can be done about 

4. Do you think that an Honor 
System which extends into aca- 
demic aim social realms, as ours 
j, is valid? 

3. In the past, the Honor Coun- 
cil has been pretty much for- 
gotten during the year because 

5. Do you think tnat intent should, 
or could, be considered in a 


6. How do you feel about estab- 
lishing an advisory board of 
students, such as the one Liz 
Muirheid outlined in her cam- 
paign? The advisory board would 
consist of various student mem- 
bers appointed by the President 
and would serve a dual purpose. 
Upon accusation of a professor, 
members of thp board vnnM 

meet witn the professor to go 
over the evidence, and in a trial 
they would serve as the accusers 
in presenting the evidence. They 
would also serve, in talking witn 
the professor, as a clearing board 
to see if procedure has been vi- 
olated or if the evidence is too 
technical or too circumstancial 
for it ot hold up in a trial. This 
would clear everything before 
the case ever got to trial. 

know this tnen our Honor system is iacK- 
ing in understanding, but it is not lacking 
in the concept of not 

Mary Ann Crandell 

involved in these revisions — we need 
1600 opinions so that we can know where 
our weaknesses and strengths of our honor 
system lie. I propose that we create an 
honor system planning board, which, at this 
time, will help revise the honor plaque. 
This would involve any students on campus 
who are interested. I have confidence that 
any student can read the honor plaque and 
see its faults, and I think that this is a time 
when our whole honor system is in question 
and that the whole student body should be 
involved in this question. I feel that an 
honor trial procedure should be written 
up and publicized. 

4. I think that this is a question that has 
to be answered by the entire student body. 
My opinion is valid only as a student, It 
has no more weight than any other student's 
opinion just because I am running for the 
office of Honor Council President. The 
Honor system has been most effective in 
the realm of academic. Most of the honor 
trials are concerning some form of aca- 
demic violation. As I understand it, no 
cases of stealing have come before the 
honor council this year. However, on the 
other hand, the social system touches our 
lives more closely than any other part of 
college life. We become more concerned 
when somthing is stolen from our rooms, 
when we are asked by a head resident what 

our action have been, whether we have 
done something we shouldn't have done, l 
think that the student body's opinion on 
this question should be registered. 

5. 1 don't think that we should delve deeply 
into the problem of plagiarism in this 
case. From what I understand, in the 
revision of the Honor plaque, plagiarism 
will be more clearly defined, and they have 
come up with a term called "technical 
plagiarism." This would handle any case 
where the girl did not intend to plagiarize 
. . . Now in answer to the question, I 
would like to give a resounding NO, and 
qualify this statement. Let's look at human 
nature. Since we were a child and we were 

scolded, everyone said "I didn't mean to, 
I'm sorry". Well this doesn't make it all 
right. Therefore intent should not be 
judged. We can't judge how much a person 
didn't mean to do it, or how sorry they 
were. I strongly believe that a student 
should know what she's doing when she 
signs the honor pledge, and she should 
know what she's doing when she commits 
an honor offense. If a student does not 

6. I think the idea behind the advisory 
board is a good one, however I am hesitant 
about involving students in wnai suuuiu ue 
a secret trial. I think irreparable damage 
would be done to our system if the pro- 
tection of the student was violated. There- 
fore I submit a proposal which is very 
similar to this advisory board composed 
of Honor Council members. If we increase 
our Honor Council to eight or maybe even 
ten, and only a quorum of six or less is 
required, then two members of the Honor 
Council could act as the advisory board, 
making sure that evidence is gathered 
correctly, and would present this to the 
President for review. What bothered me al- 
so was the word "appointment". Pm a 
strong believer in elections, and I feel 
these people should be elected. That 
would give them not only their authority, 
but I think would impress upon them their 
responsibility to the whole student bod} 
not only to the Honor Council . . . This 
is why I suggested that maybe we keep it 
within the Honor Council, because these 
were elected members. 

T. Johnson 

i. i ao ieei that honor counselling 
needs to be made more effective. The 
first thing that I would suggest starting 
with is the very problem of the counsel- 
lors themselves; possibly this is the way 
in which they have been chosen as coun- 
sellors. It seems they are always chosen 
so late that they don't have time them- 
selves to get properly prepared for this 
honor counselling. If they were chosen 
more in advance, and given a few train- 
ing sessions in the spring as well as in 
the fall, I think they would be able to 
better utilize the time in the summer; to 
think about just what they want to tell 
their freshmen and to be thinking about 
what bothered them in their freshmen 
year and what confused them, so that may- 
be they could make it easier on the fresh- 
men themselves. Also, I believe that there 
are many girls on this campus who are 
interested in the honor system, or could 
be more interested by taking the role of 
an honor counsellor. It would be better 
to encourage more and more girls to 
become honor counseUors; I don't mean 
go out and just pick anybody to be an 
honor counsellor, but to really talk it 
up and try to get enthusiasm among the 
girls. This way each girl could dedi- 
cate more of her time to less freshmen. 
Also, I think the way a girl counsels 
should be considered. I agree with Mary 
Ann in that they should try to teach 
and be an instructor; that they should 
make it on a pesonal basis because 
we are all under the same system and are 
all, techinically, friends under the same 
system, so why not talk to them as sister 
to sister about it. Make it more of a 
practical understanding. I think too often 
we tend to just read them what's been 
given to us to teach and the don't really 
understand it and yet they don't know 
what they don't understand about it. When 
we say they word "plagarism", don't 
just say the word "plagarism", but de- 
fine it, and give them examples of it. 
I also agree with Mary Ann in that thee 
should be a longer amount of orienta- 
tion, because there is so much involved 
that they tend to think of the honor sys- 
tem as just one more thing and don't 
tend to think of it any more stronly 
than any others. But. it would be up to 

the individual counsellor at the time to 
make them realize the gravity of this. 
Another suggestion is that they remain 
honor counsellors the entire year, that 
their duties are not over with the end of 
fall orientation, and that they should cer- 
tainly be available to their girls at all 
times, so that they'll realize the the 
honor system is something they live 
with all year long and not just during 

2. I don't feel that an absolute honor 
system is valid. I think today that we 
have to consider with the changing times 
that everything can't be considered 
black and white anymore, and we have 
to start thinking and asking if our system 
is truly absolute. I don't feel the system 
is truly absolute today because I think 
there are too many small points that would 
make it not an absolute system. But ths 
doesn't mean that an absolute honor system 
can't be valid. To me, an absolute system 
is an ideal; something for which we should 
strive. There's been a lot of talk about 
possibly getting away from an absolute 
system and I've given it a lot of con- 
sideration, and I still feel it is some- 
thing for which we should strive. We may 
not acheive it, but I still feel it would 
be terribly idealistic for us to feel that 
we are always going to achieve it. But, 1 
do feel it is worthwhile to make an effort 
to obtain this ideal of an absolute honor 

3. I agree that it is definitely not good 
for the simple reason as Christie has said, 
that the honor system is for the protection 
of the individual, and the individual, it's 
just nobody's business. As far as I'm 
concerned a certain amount has to be 
kept confidential. I think as much as is 
let known now is certainly sufficient . . . 
I think that just the fact that we would 
know the statistical data such as that, 
is not really telling you any more about 
the case, and I don't really think you 
should be concerned with it. Also, if you 
have a valid reason or really wanting to 
find out about a case ... you can always 
always go see the Honor Council Presi- 
dent and talk that over with her. So I 
think there are ways to find out informa- 
tion if you have a valid reason for want- 
ing to know them . . . Certainly I believe 
it's important to make the Honor Coun- 
cil's work known, in that everybody wants 
the Honor Council to be more important 
on campus, but I don't think this is the

4. In answer to the question, I think an 
honor system that extends into the aca- 
demic and social realm, such as we have 
here at Mary Washington, is definitely 
valid. We live under the system and we live 
under it 24 hours a day, and it's just 
my personal feeling that the honor system 
has to affect not only what we do in 
the academic world, but the social world, 
and that it affects one as much as the 
other. It is just as important that you 
realize there is an honor system when 
you are in the dorm or when you are 
thinking of taking somebody else's pos- 
sessions. I feel that the honor system 
to work effectively has to include all 
these facets, and I feel that the type we 
have here is perfectly valid for the sys- 

5. One facet of our honor system that 
seems to be currently under question 
is that of intent. It has been talked about 
a lot and people are asking, 'Should 
the honor council judge intent?" At pre- 
sent the honor plaque is stating that the 
honor council is unable to take either 
cha racter o r intent into consideration. I 
feel this clause should remain in the honor 
plaque. I feel it has been inserted for the 
honor council's protection. If it should be 
stated as several people have suggested as 
a good idea that the honor council iudee 
intent, it would often result in pitting the 
accused against the members of the honor 
council. In other words, pitting the words 
of the accused against the word of the 
honor council. I don't feel this is good. 

I don't feel this is what the honor coun- 
cil, the position it should be placed in. 
The honor system is flexible and because 
it is flexible I feel that although intent 
is not jidged as such, every girl is 
given every benefit of every doubt. Sc 
the ones that are hurt by the intent clause 
that remains in the honor plaque are not 
the ones we are actually trying to punish. 
I propose instead of taking this clause 
out or even saying that intent should be 
judged from now on, that there be a more 
exact definition of plagarism of stealing, 
lying, breaking one's word of honor be- 
cause in this realm is where I think the 





question of intent is coming up most. 
Then the people who are actually being 
hurt by the part of the honor plague 
would not suffer as much, so they actually 
need in more precise words what plaga- 
rism, lying stealing, breaking one's word 
of honor consisted of. There shouldn't be 
any questions in their minds as to what 
this should actually be, so I feel that by 
redefining, which has already started, and 
making more specific definitions, that any 
person that would have been hurt by such a 
clause would be protected and I do feel that 
that clause should remain in there for the 
protection of the honor council. 

6. I feel the advisory board that has been 
suggested is an excellent idea too. I 
believe that the problems that arise most 
in these cases are involved in profes- 
sors' and students' relationships be- 
cause professors are uneasy about accus- 
ing girls and often do goof up the pro- 
cedure, and I feel that an advisory board 
would certainly help to alleviate some of 
these problems. It would also not only 
take the responsibility off the professors' 
shoulders but it would help the Honor 
Council President herself because it would 
be composed of girls that she had worked 
with and known that she could trust 
and converse with. And not only that, it 
would give her more time that she can use 
in other areas of Honor Council work. 
Also I feel that there is no problem in 
them being appointed, not necessarily 
elected, because they wold be appointed 
by the Honor Council President to be 
upstanding girls and girls that would have 
been elected anyway by an intelligent vot- 
ing public. Also, no more members are 
going to hurt the girls, because even 
though it may seem upsetting to the girls 
that there would be an advisory board, 
they're extra girls to help the Honor 
Council President and they're very well 
trained. Also I believe that it's a good 
idea that we have somebody like this that 
can do the accusing, because Honor Coun- 
cil members, according to the Honor 
plaque, are not anything but judges, and 
they are not supposed to be doing the 
accusing. I think the advisory board would 
be a good idea.

and to formulate questions which may not 
have been answered during the counselling 
period. Finally, Honor Counsellors should 
keep in touch with their counsellees, meet 
with them at specific times during the 
year to answer any questions which may 
have arisen after living under the system.

1. First of all, there should be an en- 
couragement and appeal to the students 
to realize the importance of the roU of 
Honor Counsellor as the first link be- 
tween the new incoming student and the 
Honor System. When they sign the Honor 
pledge card, they are making a legal 
contract with the College and if they break 
this contract and if they are found guilty, 
they must leave theCollege.Subsequently, 
the Honor Counsellor must educate the 
incoming students as to the seriousness, 
the importance, and the workings of the 
Honor System. Counsellors should not 
only fill out an application, but should be 
interviewed to help insure that those 
chosen will be capable of serving as this 
link. Secondly, the Counsellor training 
sessions should be longer in an attempt 
to answer any questions that they might 
have about the system and to review the 
provisions of the Honor System. Thirdly, 
the period of counselling time for the in- 
coming student should be increased, giving 

2. Our Honor plaque advocates absolute 
honor, however, in application, absolute 
honor is not valid. If a girl is questioned 
when she is emotionally upset or perhaps 
intoxicated, she may lie. According to 
our Honor plaque, this is an infraction 
of the Honor System, however, had she 
been questioned when in better mental 
state, she would not have lied. The Honor 
Council this year has attempted to move 
away from the absolute and take into ac- 
count a case such as this where, as I 
feel,, absolute honor cannot be applied. 

3. First of all, the Honor President's door 
is opened to any student with questions 
concerning the Honor Council and the 
Honor System. There are certain limi- 
tations, however, to what the Honor Presi- 
dent can reveal, in that her first concern 
is to protect the student who is brought up 
before the Council, whether she is guilty 
or not guilty. It should be impressed 
upon the students that at any time during 
the year they may ask questions of any 
member of the Council and that the ques- 
tions are encouraged. If the Honor System 
is "pretty much forgotten" it is because 
the students have forgotten it. A revision 
of the Honor plaque, which is now in 
progress, will make more explicit the 
provisions and workings of the Honor 
System, but to live with it with an aware- 
ness of it, not a forgetfulness. To question 
to suggest, to learn about the Honor Sys- 
tem wiU make it more alive and bring 
about an awareness. 

4. An Honor System which extends into 
both academic and social realms is valid. 
To divorce the two and say that an honor 
system is valid in one but not the other, as 
I feel, cannot be realized on this campus. 
To encourage and promote personal in- 
tegrity and personal honor is valid and 
therefore I feel our Honor System in both 
realms is valid.

Sen. Kennedy has made the 
Vietnam war a major issue of 
his campaign. Events of the past 
weeks have subordinated this iss- 
ue for the mement as prelimi- 
nary negotiations are being plan- 
ned. In an address delivered Feb- 
ruary 8, in Chicago, Sen. Ken- 
nedy was very definite "that a 
political compromise is not just 
the best path to peace, but the 
only path, and we must show as 
much willingness to risk some of 
our prestige for peace as to risk 
the lives of our young men in 
war." Sen. Kennedy goes on to 
discuss certain illusions about 

Vietnam: (1) that we can't win a 
war which the south Vietnamese 
cannot win for themselves. 
"Above all, Vietnam teaches us 
that a government must com- 
mand the willing allegiance of 
its people, and make itself a 
vehicle for the satisfaction oi 

their national and personal as- 
pirations." (2) that a military 
victory at any cost is not in our 
interest nor that of Vietnam (3) 
'that this was can be settled in 
our own way and in our own time 
on our own terms." This last 
illusion seems to prevail as we 
haggle over a place for negoti- 
ation while the fighting goes on. 

In making a responsible choice 
consider the issues, consider ex- 
perience, consider dynamic lead- 
ership qualities - the ability to 
communicate with and mold pub- 
lic opinion. Sen. Kennedy has 
shown us these qualities as At- 
torney General (President Ken- 
nedy's alter -ego), as Senator of 
New York, as an educated man 
and articulate speaker intensely 
interested in discussing the iss- 

"At stake is not simply the 
leadership of our party or even 
our country - it is our right to 
moral leadership on this planet."

"The Hunt" Depicts Man's Inhumanity 


"The Hunt," a Spanish film 
which won praises at the 1966 
New York Film Festival, will 
be shown Saturday, April 27, at 
8:30 p.m. in George Washington 

Often described as one of the 
most gruesome films of its time, 
"The Hunt" tells the story of 
four men who meet on an old 
battlefield of the Spanish civil 
war for a few days of rabbit 
shooting. All of them are Franco 
veterans except for the youngest, 
who is evidently the son of a 

As the movie progresses, it 
becomes evident that the men, 

though financially successful, are 
bitter, jealous, cruel, degen- 
erate, suspicious of one an- 
other, and avid to shoot and kill. 
During a long, hot afternoon of 
hunting the lust to kill slowly 
creates gripping tension, then 
finally grinds to a climax of 
violence and disaster as murder 
strikes and the hunter become 
the hunted.

From a photographic point of 

view, this movie is generally 
considered to be a work of art 
as it contains some of the most 
realistic and grisly hunt scenes 
ever filmed. The actors are chief- 
ly unknowns, but Carlos Saura, 
the director is well-known in 

The film seems to have two 
points to make. First, it is a 
cynical innuendo of what has 
happened to the middle aged man 
of the generation which fought 
for Franco in the civil war; and

senior was assaulted around 9:00, 
Thursday night, as she returned 
to Trench Hill. Chief Haynes said 
the student had reached the lawn 
of the dormitory when she was 
grabbed from behind and thrown 
to the ground. 

Her attacker, described as

180 pounds, threatened to kill her 
if she screamed. 

The victim was treated at Mary

second, it vividly depicts man's 
inhumanity and his tendency to 
destroy other men. On the whole, 
although it might be much more 
valid and understandable in Spain, 
"The Hunt" is still fairly excit- 
ing and entertaining work. 

Increases In 
Facultv Pay 
Gains Approval 

Mary Washington College fac- 
ulty pay increases approved for 
the session which begins in Sept-

tional salary at $10,212. 

In announcing the details of the 
salary boost which ranges from 
$400 to $1,000 Chancellor Grellet 
C. S impson said that the increase 
place the average here ten dollars 
above the approximate national 
average for schools comparable 
to Mary Washington. National 
figures are used by theCommon-

Chancellor, faculty salaries will 
range from $6,400 to $13,700. 
The current range is from $6,000 
to $12,700.

Dr. Fickett mentioned a feel-

dents as opposed to the optimism 
of American students. He also 
spoke of the frequent riots in

characteristic in India is resigna-

is "ossified", then why would the

Bulbul Vaswani 

Dear Editor, 

The article written about the 
last SIC meeting and published in 
the February 26 issue of the 
Bullet was highly inaccurate and 

misrepresentative. First of ah, 
nothing was said at the meeting 
about the "hopelessness" of the 
recommendation for open-end 
classes. As a matter of fact, 
this was one proposal with a 
very optimistic future. The pro- 
posal for the abolition of the 
cut system has been forwarded 
to SGA and hasn't yet reached 
the faculty. Hence, to say it is a 
"lost-cause" is ridiculous. 

The reporter completely mis- 
represented me as being "un- 
impressed with the present 
course evaluation carried out by 
the Academic Affairs Commit- 
tee." It is highly unlikely that I 
would have made such a state- 
ment as I am in charge of 
course evaluation for Ac. Af- 
fairs. Furthermore, the inde- 

pendent course evaluation pro- 
ject is a supplement to SGA's 
project which has an altogether 
different purpose. Finally, the 
reporter's statement that only "a 
slight percentage of SIC's plans 
have a future" was an editorial 
comment in a professed news 
story, a statement I did not make 
nor do I agree with. 

The article consisted of a re- 
port on 10 minutes of a 45- 
minute meeting. It totally ne- 
glected the major issue discussed 
at the meeting - the question 
of what MWC students can do 
constructively to aid the civil 
rights movement. As a result of 
this discussion, based on sug- 
gestions from the Va. Human 
Relations Council, a recommen- 
dation has been forwarded to Dr.

To Be Essential Point of Contention

Despite the reporter's obvious 
disenchantment, SIC has accomp- 
lished a great deal for an or- 
ganization with no sponsorship, 
no funds, and no formal member- 
ship. Hundreds of pages of litera- 
ture have been studied and in- 
numerable conferences with 
faculty and administration have 
been held, in an effort to re- 
search almost 100 suggestions 
for change. 

Research has been completed 
and recommendations have been 
forwarded to student government 
on at least eight suggestions: 
abolition of the cut system, keys 

the political scene in America 
has gone through some rather 
surprising changes, but these 
changes do not alter McCarthy's 
basic convictions. 

McCarthy's opposition to the 
present course of the war has 
remained as he stated, "I am 
not for peace at any price but 
for an honorable, rational, and 
political solution to this war; 
a solution which I believe will 
enhance our world position, en- 
courage the respect of our allies 
and potential adversaries, which 
will permit us to give the necess- 
ary attention to our other com- 
mittments abroad - both military 
and non-military - and leave with 
us both resources and moral 
energy to deal effectively with 
the pressing domestic problems 
of the United States itself." 

The overriding financial burden 
of the war, according to Mc- 
Carthy, has caused increasing 
concern in other areas of United 
States responsibility, of which 
four major areas are: 

1) domestic finance -McCarthy 
feels the war has caused "the 
failure to appropriate adequate 
funds for the poverty program, 
for housing, for education and 
other national needs, and the 
prospect of additional cuts as 
a condition for Congressional 
approval of a tax bill." 

2) foreign spending - the in-

dangerous rise oi infla- 
and , as an indirect but 
serious consequence, the deval- 
uation of the British pound, which 
is more important east of Suez 
than is the British Navy." 

By way of a biographical sketch, 
Mc Carthy was born in Watkins, 
Minnesota, taught high school and 
college, and at the age of 32, was 
elected to the U. S. House of 
representatives. Defeating a 
GOP incumbent, McCarthy was 
elected to the U. S. Senate in 
1958 and was re-elected in 1964 
by the largest popular majority 
of any Democratic candidates in 
Minnesota's history. 

His election leaflet states 
"People will recognize in Mc- 
Carthy not only courage and in- 
tegrity but independence, dedi- 
cation and intellectual excel- 
lence." There is an alternative 
in 1968 - Senator Eugene Mc- 

bulk of progressive legislation, 
most important of which is the 
Constitution, providing new and 
hopefully more efficient channels 
for legislative chanee. 

During the sound-off held in 
March, I wondered why there was 
only a handful of students at- 
tending compared with the packed 
ballroom of *67's spring sound- 
off. Was it the oft-complained- 
of apathy? Was it poor communi- 
cations? No - the publicity was 
more than adequate. And no - 
I didn't think it was student apa- 
thy. My conclusion was that the 
poor turn-out for the sound-off 
was the highest compliment that 
could have been paid to the 
Bradley administration. It 
indicated that there just isn't 
that much to "sound - off" about 
for seniors, 2 resolutions for re- tnat nasn » t already been or isn't 
vision of registration pro- pres ently 
cedures, extension of C- 
shop hours and alteration in C- 
shop policy, and the formation 
of a joint committee to study 
the academic calendar. SIC's 
pass -fail resolution was for- 
warded to a faculty committee 
which passed a proposal almost 
identical to SIC's. SIC has clear- 
ed up many misconceptions about 
channels and regulations and has 
provided a place and a purpose 
for those students who want pro- 
gress but feel stifled by the red 
tape of official channels. 

But most important of all, 
SIC has made the need for change 
an ever-present force in stu- 
dent government and in the stu- 
dent body. The election platforms 


What does this mean for the 
future of SIC? - a drive for 
greater student responsibility 
and speedier reform in the aca- 
demic realm, here-to-fore the 
private concern of the faculty. 
The success of the SIC pass- 
fail resolution and the initiation 
of a published course - evalua- 
tion booklet to be sold in the 
fall indicate that SIC can bring 
about needed academic reform.

Chris Phillips Stresses Personal Integrity 

From Page 5 

5. Intent is involved with absolute honor. 
The Honor Council is not capable of de- 
termining the intent of a student when she 
plagiarizes or steals. However, in the 
example that I cited in Question No. 2, 
intent, if this is what it may be called, 
should be considered. Each case is an 
entity within its self, and must be treated 
as such. To judge intent, to attempt to 
"read a girl's mind," in almost every 
case, is not possible. But yet honor is 
not absolute. There is a fine line here, 
something which cannot be answered in 
a flat statement. 

6. There should be an advisory boarc* 
established. Many professors are not 
aware of the procedure to be followed. With 
an advisory board of students who know 
the procedure to be followed, these dis- 
crepancies will be elim nated and pro- 
tection of the student increased. 

Chris Phillips 

1. Yes, I feel that honor counselling can 
be made more effective. This year, under 
B. J. Bowden's guidance, the honor system 
has become so effective that there hasn't 
been a single conviction this year among 
the freshmen. I would like to continue this 
plan, and I think the greatest importance is 
the personal contact with the freshmen. 
If I were elected the Honor Council Presi- 
dent, I would like to go to each dorm to 
answer questions upper-classmen might 
have and also to reach the freshmen in 
those upperclassmen dorms. I think one 
of the first problems to make honor 
counselling more effective would be to 
revise the plaque, which is being done 
now, so that it will be easier to teach and 
more understandable. I think that the first 
thing that the freshmen should learn to 

respect and not be intimidated by the 
honor code, and to realize that the bene- 
fits derived from it far outweigh any 
scare that it might put into them. I also 
believe that more intensified training for 
the counsellors and a search for more in- 

Chris Phillips 

terested counsellors would be very bene- 
ficial. I think these counsellors should be 
given practical examples to give to the 

freshmen and should know how to help 
them with any problem they might have; to 
relay their own personal problems faced 
in their freshmen year. Especially in the 
realm of plagarism, I feel the freshmen 
should be given guidance on how to avoid 
this, how to approach their professors in 
this area, since this is the most prevalent 

problem among all students. 

2. I think an absolute honor system is 
valid because it is based on true honor to 
build our personal integrity, and I feel 
this is the greatest asset we can derive 
from any experience — college or the 
world outside. I feel that unless we had 
a totaUy psycho-analytical honor council, 
it would be impossible for us to make a 
black, grey-white decision and, as it is, 
the absolute honor system is the best 
possible one that Mary Washington couiu 

Committees Begun To Work 

have, and I think the 
should live up to it. 

3. No I do not believe this is good. I be- 
lieve the student body should be aware of 
what the Honor Council is doing. I think 
that it should be more prominent. The 
types of offenses committed, if not at 
the time committed, should be made 
public at periodical times as far as 
giving data on the class ranking of the 
students committing the offenses, the 
type of offense, and the percentage of 
cases taken to trial and what they were 
for. I think this should be brought to the 
floor. I think the students should know what 
the honor council is doing. I think this is 
one way student interest can be encour- 
aged. I think tms is one way to let tne stu- 
dent body know that the honor council is 
working for them to protect them and to 
DrotGct tncir nonor coqg. 

4. The honor plaque says that it is es- 
sential that the honor system shall con- 
cern itself with academic matters and 
the word of honor of the individual student 
given to her professor, members of the 
college staff and student officials. Of 
course academics are vital, but I think 
personal integrity between students is to 
be valued as much as the honor code 
in applying to academics. What would it 
profit us to live here together on one 
campus, and be able to lie to each other. 
If we can't trust each other, if we can't 
trust ourselves and if we don't learn 
this now during our college years, when 
are we going to learn it? We have to 
have this pesonal integrity when we go 
out into the world. 

5. No, I do not think intent should be 
considered. First of all the honor council 
is not qualified to judge intent. In trials 
of our state legislature, psychologists are 
called in to give insight into a person, 
but there is no way an honor council 
could, without psychoanalyzing a person, 
judge their intent. Only the person knows 
his own intent, and it is often very diffi- 
cult for that person to admit it. I think 
it would be a total impossibility for our 
honor council to judge it therefore. I do 
think, however, that plagarism is one of 
the major offenses. I think plagarism 
should be very well defined so that it 
can be taken into consideration by the 

freshmen when they come, they knowwnat 
they are doing, they know what is ex- 

them selves what they ought to do. 

6. I think this is an excellent idea. I 
think it's a very good way of finding 
out, especially in the case of a professor 
accusing a student, if the proper pro- 
cedure has been followed, if the pro- 
fessor has been negligent, not through 
his own fault, but not bothered to find 
out the finer details of why the student 
has done this, if he hasn't accused the 
student properly. I think it has another 
benefit in that it is much easier for 
an accused student to face two student 
accusees instead of a professor in a 
trial, and also it helps our Honor Code 
within the realm of the student and it

the citizen does not earn to support government, but supports government so that he may
