Life At Carolina Is College Boy’s Utopia—Self-Government In Action By GLADYS BEST TRIPP CHAPEL, HILL, March 25.—Car< lina is a college boy's Utopia. It i probably more nearly governed er tirely by students than any colleg in the east. University of Nortl Carolina students make their owi rules, enforce them, and punish of fenders. Their system is knowi jointly as the Honor System* ani the Campus Code. The Honor System means tha every boy and girl is made respon sible for his or her actions. No stu dent watches another. Each is oi his honor not to cheat, steal or lie There are no specific conduct reg ulations, but the ‘‘Campus Code' means that every student is expect ed to conduct himself as a gentle man 144 Years To Evolve This system took 144 years tc evolve. Officials realized that col lege was not a place in which tc bind boys with iron-clad rules. These students were going to college tc learn. If they did not come to the university for that purpose. Cha pel Hill was no place for them. When they graduated they would gu forth as men-of-the-world. Why not, then, allow them to accept re sponsibility for their behavior while in college, and thus be better quali fied for citizenship when they grad uated? The Student Council was made the supreme governing body. Mem bers are elected and Include the president, vice-president and secre tary of the student body officers, and one representative each from the senior, junior and sophomore classes, Pharmacy school, Medical school, Law school, and one or more holdover members from the past year’s council. No faculty members are present. It is the duty of these students to enforce the rules of the Honor Sy stem and Campus Code. They must be sympathetic and yet firm In their judgment. Mac Nisbet, of Wil mington, is a member of the Stu dent Council An Appellate System But the Student Council is the final step. Class councils elected by the separate classes assist the Stu dent Council. The Class Honor Council firt acts on such cases as cheating. If the defendant is' found guilty, the Student Council . re views the case and passes judg ment. if the lower council exone rates him, the case Is dropped. All information concerning cases is k<pt secret by the councils. That is Carolina’s way of living. Last year the Student Legislature originated, and was embodied with ail the legislative power-, of the Stu dent Body. The legislature is sub ject to veto by the Student Coun cil, but the veto can be overruled by a two-thirds vote of the legislature. Class officers automatically become members of the legislature, and 45 o her students are elected from the student body. The faculty is all for the system, but it keeps them on their toes. If enough students object to a cer tain text book a professor is using, next quarter he is obliged to use an other. A Student Advisory committee represents students’ interests to the University Business administration. j student welfare advisory board helps the faculty’s Administrative Board of the Division of Student Welfare to stimulate work of Uni v rsity agencies. Instead of house-:nc hers, as are used in many colleges, each dormi tory has its dorm managers in charge. The Interdormitory Coun cil, composed of representatives of each male dormitory, has the power of punishment or expulsion of dis orderly dorm residents. Similarly the Interfraternity Council, com posed of the presidents of all social ITTriTi®7SrTnTnilTiTRlTSX^rTITTriTTTrTtlTCJ?aTnTT^^ I fraternities, makes and enforces rushing and pledging rules, and re k-.lar fraternity conduct. Own Newspapers The Daily Tar Heel newspaper, Carolina literary magazine, the hu morous Euccaneer, the Yackety Yack Carolina yearbook, not only are written, edited and financed en tirely by students, but have theii own supervising board of elected students called the Publications Union Board. The Athletic Council, a joint stu dent-faculty committee, controls the university ath etic policies and pro grams. Even a dance committee re gulates conduct and supervises al! university dance functions! Wilmington boys are doing their part to run the Student Govern ment at the University of North Carolina. Mac N'isbet, top left, is senior representative of the Student Council, supreme governing body, and chairman of the Senior Honor Council.

The author of the resolution, Miss M. Johns of London, said: "We are told this is a war to end aggression. This comes from the British capital ist class which has held down India by force and violence and shot down strike pickets in the West Indies, which has oppressed, starved and exploited negro workers in Africa and is still carrying on aggression against Ireland.” Adopts Program At Nottingham the independent labor party, which has four mem bers in the house of commons, adopted a wartime program provid ing for abolition of conscription.
