King Memorial Fund Encourages Racial And Economic Diversity Among Mary Washington Students By CANDY BUTLER As a result of concentrated ef- fort, the Memorial Scholarship Fund now boasts a balance of ap- proximately 1,500 dollars in money and pledges. Alpha Phi Sigma, which awards a one hun- dred dollar scholarship to a de- serving person each year, voted to donate this year's award to the Memorial Fund. The Committee for the Dr. King Memorial Fund has made this statement to clarify its pur- pose: "Because of apparent misun- derstandings, the Committee for the Dr. King Memorial Scholar- ship Fund feels it wise to restate the intended aim of the scholar- ship. As originally expressed, the scholarship was created to en- courage a representative distri- bution of all races and economic groups in the student body of Mary Washington College, and this remains the objective of the fund. Consistent with the spirit of Dr. King's life, we have no interest in establishing this scholarship on a discriminatory basis: to stipulate that the recipi- ent be a member of any given race would violate the intention of this scholarship. The aim of this scholarship is to enrich the life of a girl who otherwise would not have the opportunity to attend this college and, at the same time, to enrich student life at Mary Washington College by encour- aging racial and economic di- versity within it. "We also wish to express our gratitude to all those who have so generously contributed to the fund and our hope that if you have not already made a donation that you will be able to in the coming weeks See RESPONSE, Page 3 In the race for Residence Hall President, the results were: Ball, Betsy Moore; Bushnell.

Student Body Will Vote On Constitution By PAM TOMPKINS SENIOR CLASS PRESIDENT In conjunction with the re-or- ganization of the Student Govern- ment Association under the new constitutuon, the classes will op- erate as separate organizations co-ordinated by the newly formed Class Council. The classes will be represented on this council by their respective Presidents and Vice- Presidents. The purpose of the Council will be to co-ordinate the activities of the four classes enabling them to work together in areas of mu- tual concern and providing a means for cooperative support in individual projects. The first duty of the Class Council is to extablish a con- stitution for a basis of opera- tion for the classes. The stu- dent body will have the oppor- tunity to vote on the proposed constitution at Hall meetings this week. Each Hall President has a copy of the constitution and, if possible, students are request- ed to be familiar with it before the meeting. In effect, the con- stitution merely verbalizes and puts on paper those practices which have already been in ef- fect in past years. Any ques- tions may be directed to Pam Tompkins, ext. 502 or any of the other Class Presidents. 'Z c I "5 u c 4 c M 2 h- Ul 3 CD 111 Z I- CN Education - - Rah! The recent column in the Fredericksburg Free Lance Star (which is reprinted in this issue) has been the cause of much concern to us. It stimulated a re-evaluation of our own journalistic abilities, but more important, it forced an examination of the purpose of an education and the role of educat- educated women in the world against ever-present walls of closed- mindedness and misunderstanding. We submit that Mr. Goolrick's criticisms of our article on the "submissive" Negroes of Fred- ericksburg were valid. The article represented the analysis and opinion of one reporter, and it was an oversight that the story was not labelled as such. Yet the more disturbing views set forth by Mr. Goolrick were his criticisms of our entire college experience. His objections to a speaker on LSD, a death-of-God theologian, and a harmless NSA referendum seem so contrary to the progress for which we have been striving, that it is difficult to put forth a rational argument. Have we, perhaps, been heading in the wrong direction? Mr. Goolrick seems to feel that we should revert back to the days of the state Normal School, or should close our gates to the outside and let the world solve its own problems while we sit on the hill conjugat- ing Latin verbs and learning how to cook. That would certainly be a much easier form of education than the type we are struggling through now. Visiting lecturers would have to be screened by the administration to make sure they repre- sented the "right and true" opinions, and the hard- est decision a student would ever have to make would be whether to join the Methodist Church or the Presbyterian Church. This type of education would be beneficial because all graduates of the college could become stable homemakers and raise their chldren in the "good old American tradition." For some reason, however, this is not the type of training desired by most college women. Per- haps girls are smarter these days, or perhaps the dirty outside world has somehow seeped in through the serpentine walls. Girls want to know about the war, urban problems, politics, drugs, and differ- ing attitudes towards religion. And more than just learning, they want participation. Knowledge with- out action is meaningless. This is the premise upon which modern higher education is built. It is so commonly accepted and understood by students that an attack upon it seems almost irrational. If Mr. Goolrick's com- ments are representative of his generation, then we will have many surprises and frustrations await- ing us after graduation. How are we to "promote the imperative change," as Jane Bradley has urged, and put into practice what we have learned in college, with obstacles of status-quoism before us? At a recent City Council meeting, after some discussion of the "submissive Negro" article and John Goolrick's column, one Councilman stated that he had read neither article but further added that "I am disturbed about what some of our col- leges are doing. I always thought students went to college to learn and not to teach the professors and I think it's a sad commentary on our sick society." Perhaps we are living in a sick society, but it seems likely that the sickness lies on the other side of the college walls. Students do not come to college to teach any- body. They come to be exposed to as many different aspects of the world as possible so that they might make intelligent decisions about them. We have recently be exposed to Mr. Goolrick's views, and it has been a learning experience for us, though after careful consideration, we feel we must reject these views. They are stifling to us, and not con- ducive to the healthy atmosphere to which we have been accustomed. We are growing, living, breath- ing freely, and it would take more than one John Goolrick to knock the wind out of us. LV Letters To The Editor (EDITOR'S NOTE: The name of the author of the following letter has been withheld upon her request, because of the na- ture of the letter.) Dear Editor: In support of your editorial on April 15, 1968 in the BULLET, I would like to say that there are flaws in the present Honor Sys- tem and there is definitely a need for a total re-examination of it. I am a "victim" of mis Honor System. I was dismissed from Mary Washington for a violation of that code. I do not hold a grudge against Mary Washington, the Honor Council or the Honor Code which convicted me. There was no other alternative as the code is written now. However, IF in- tent had been judged in my case, perhaps I would still be a stu- dent at MWC, but I am not writ- ing to argue my case, which is now permanently closed. Any re- vision of the Honor Code will not help me, but it could help you. I can only hope that by sharing my experience with you, that you will realize the immediate need for a revision of the Honor Code. Until I was accused, I hadn't read the Honor Code since I was a freshman. I had told all my friends how great it was to live under a system where you could leave your belongings in the open and no one took them and pro- fessors did not babysit while you took exams. I suggest you read the Honor Code IF you haven't read it since you were a fresh- man. I had no idea that the Honor Council did not judge intent OR character. I thought it was just like a regular trial in a court of law . . . IT ISN'T. As it stands now, the Honor Code does not al- low for human error. You can not unwittingly or unintentionally make a mistake or you will be thrown out of school in 24 hours with the stigma of the label "discharged by the Honor Coun- cil." The arbitrary definition of a breach of one's word of honor is all inclusive and fits an academ- ic community. This definition should not be altered. However, this system is too cut and dried. There are count- less circumstances that could lead to a violation of the Honor Code as it is now defined, yet the student could still be honor- able. There are many problems in trying to prove intent, as Liz Vantrease pointed out in her editorial. But wouldn't it be bet- ter to try and iron out these prob- lems than to dismiss a girl who has not acted dishonorably and have her labeled for life an honor offender? After my dismissal from Mary Washington, I was faced with the problem of re-applying to col- leges. Since an honor offender cannot just fill out an application for admission and send it in and expect to be admitted, it was necessary that I apply in person even before I filled out an appli- cation for admission. This in- volved speaking to Directors of Admission, Directors of Student Conduct and even the Presidents of Colleges. During these inter- views I told the story surrounding my dismissal and showed a copy of the student handbook contain- ing the Honor Code. One Director of Admissions at a small Eastern college listened to my story intently and then read the code. He then stated that he was completely in favor of Honor systems IF THEY WORK, and as soon as they don't, they are by far more harm than good. He hadn't ever seen an Honor sys- tem comparable to MWC's and could see how a student could be "had" under the present sys- tem. A Director of Student Con- duct found it hard to believe that a system could be so arbitrary and not take into account the stu- dent's intent to commit the viola- tion. Finally, the President of an Eastern college said after study- ing the handbook for awhile, that the system was completely an- tiquated and that he'd never seen a code like it. All of the schools mentioned above operate with an honor code governing their student's be- havior. They were all willing to admit me providing I met their academic standards. I am now en- rolled as a student in a large Mid- Western University which ranks tenth in the country in my major field. I was lucky - 1 didn't lose any credit, and by going to a five week summer session I'll be caught up with my class. Some other girls may not be so lucky . . . they shouldn't have to rely on luck, because they shouldn't be dismissed by such an arbitrary system as MWC's which doesn't take into account intent . . . something that must be considered in every court of law in our land. Indeed, your system is an- tiquated. Perhaps it was suf- ficient in the days of Thomas Jefferson, but this is now 1968 and since it is ineffectual in judging true honor, it ought to be revised immediately before another girl falls victim to the system. Dear Editor: Although the Negroes of Fred- ericksburg may not consider themselves to be, in Lois Jasu- ta's words, "unbearably de- prived," this does not necess- arily mean that unbearable con- ditions do not exist. At this time, I would like to bring to your attention the sit- uation which I, personally, ;ind to be the most intolerable. I am referring to the treatment of the mentally retarded teenagers at Walker Grant High School. In this particular class, in which over two thirds of the students are Negro, shaming appears to be the major item stressed by the- teachers. Consider these few ex- amples: 1. When some of the Negro children, struggling alone through arithmetic books which were obviously too abstract for them to understand, pushed the books aside, one of the teachers (a white woman, as are all of the other teachers in the special education department) sharply informed them that "they were not to damage the books which she had paid good tax money for." As this teacher herself informed me later, she was tell- ing these children that she re- sented the fact that the town, rather than their parents, had purchased the books. 2. When one of the Negro children pronounced the word "child as "chile, " he was ri- diculed and laughed at by the teacher in front of all of the other members of the class. 3. On the blackboard one day appeared the words, "Dese is my hands and dese is my feet, and dis ist what I lerntin skool." This sentence, written with large, neat print, could hardly have been ignored by the children in the class. 4. When word games are played in the class, the teacher in charge very rarely praises or rewards the children in any way for cor- rect word usage. On the other hand, children using the wrong words are required to either stand up or to write their names on the board in order that their failures may be emphasized. These are only a few examples of what apears to be an overall disgraceful program. Surely, the children should not be forced to accept it. Certainly, they should not be deprived of pride in them selves and freedom to explore the world without being punished for every unknowing error that they make. There is not doubt in my mind but that these children could learn more, and learn it more happily, under more rewarding circumstances. They need better schooling than they are getting, and it is certainly a long overdue right of theirs to get it. Sincerely, SUSAN SANDERS Dear Editor: A broad background of general griping lies behind this letter, but I was finally prompted to action by the proverbial ' 'straw." How is it that DuPont glistens with a perpetual sheen of wax and polish, all to be trod upon by dirty shoes day after day, yet ACL pool and locker room are consistently covered with a fine layer of dirt and grime? Aesthetically - as well as health- wise - the condition is not very appealing to bare bodies. After sliding through the dirt, it is true, we are allowed to rinse ourselves in the pool. Is that the reason the chlorine is always so blinding? The pool is not the only area so unjustly neglected though - all of Monroe gym is in as bad or worse conditions. Sure, the new gym will be better taken care of - but why have the pres- ent facilities (as the cobwebs will attest to) been so long ne- glected? Sincerely, Chris Lunt Dear Editor: Hothouse or igloo? It is rather ironic that re- serve books may be used in another part of the library only when the reserve room is too cold for a student. Are not excessive heat and stuffiness just as unconducive to studying as cold conditions? Sincerely yours, Helaine Patterson Established 1927 Liz Vantrease Editor-in-Chief Susan Wagner Managing Editor Response To Fund Is Good from Page 1 Although there are many prob- lems to be worked out, the ex- cellent student response, accord- ing to Miss Finnegan, has helped a great deal. It is hoped that the fund will gradually become a con- tinuing scholarship. The students have canvassed the dorms for money and pledges, while both the students and interested faculty have been sitting at the table in the foyer of ACL to collect any donations. Those on the faculty whose in- terest centers on the admissions aspect of this idea, together with Miss Clark, are working with the administration and the ad- missions office in order to find ways to increase the already growing effort on the part of the administration to search for eli- gible students in predominantly Negro high schools. A sincere effort to start a summer tutoring program on campus is in the works. This would be a coopera- tive project between the faculty and the students to help high school students become more aware of the existence of higher education, its demand, and its rewards. Once this program gets off the drawing board it will, hopefully, become a full time program.

(NOTE: The following article is reprinted from The Free Lance- Star, Sat., April 20.) By JOHN GOOLRICK "While resentment and often open arrogrance characterize many Northern ghetto Negroes, the colored of Fredericksburg seem timid and subservient . . . the Negro here seems to patient- ly accept his socially imposed position of inferiority." This incredibly all knowing statement was written by a stu- dent at Mary Washington College and is part of a so-called "news story" In the latest issue of the college newspaper, THE BULLET. College newspapers, at least the ones I've seen, aren't no- torious for good journalism, but in all candor I must say from reading issues of the MWC paper of late that it is probably the worst example of the species I've seen. If most of the students who write - and I use the word ad- visedly - for it have had any classes in the art of journalism or even faculty tutoring the pro- duct doesn't show it. Normally, I make some feeble attempts at humor in this space with only a passing reference now and then to the halls of ivy. But, old-fashioned as it may sound, reading the BULLET here of late has given me a certain nauseous feeling in the pit of my stomach.

I could go back to other recent issues of this publication and re- cite similar instances of campus kids whose stories reflect what one assumes is an ego with themselves which leads them to believe they are somehow ominiscent and just because they think something is true and right, then it must follow that it is true and right.

Elsewhere in most recent issue of Thi Bullet and in past copies we see things that leave us per- sonally a bit disturbed, such things as: (1) A visiting lecturer who tells the young ladies the use of LSD (3) A lady teacher from India who tells the students all about white racism in America but fails to mention the system of near-slavery in her own nation where people are divided into castes and marriages are still arranged between families.
