Mass., March 15 CP) Students of Amherst college are wrestling today with the problem of agreeing to an honor system of "cuts" from chapel for the re mainder of the term. Revocation of all cuts was order ed yesterday by Dean Thomas C. Estey when It was learned that tho only existing list of these privileges had been stolen from the bulletin board. Subsequently an indignation meeting was held on the campus. Student orators denounced tho dean's action, and protested that all would have to suffer for the ac tion of an individual. They pointed out that the revocation would rob them of many cuts which they had saved to insure an early start on Kaster vacations. A delegation we.s named to carry their grievances to President Olds and the dean, and, after a confer ence, Dean Kstcy announced that privileges would be restored if the students would pledge themselves not to take more cuts than they know are due thrm. A vote today "will determine the question, but in the meantime chapel attendance Is obligatory for all. Continued from First Pane.)
