The General and Executive Committees The Corps of Cadets at the Virginia Military Institute is unique ill many respects. One of the most distinctive of these is the class system and its privileges, which are guarded by the General Com- mittee and the Executive Committee, both cadet organizations. Not even the fabled academy at West Point has I his class system, upon which the VSll " esprit de corps " is built. Officers of the upper three classes make up the committees, with two committee representatives from the first class and the Chairman of the Rat Disciplinary Committee. The President of the First Class, who is the presiding officer, votes to break ties or dis- putes only. The Historian of the Third Class is sergeant-at-arms, and votes only on E xecutive Committee cases. It is the duty of the General and Executive Committees to hold a rein on the Corps and to represent the Corps as a whole in dealing with the Administration. Both these committees are powerful in- fluences in maintaining the general high standards of conduct found in the Corps. ; ' .John I).

Honor Court Chester A. Bamforth, Jr. President of the Honor Court Since 1889, when the Institute was founded, the Honor Code has set forth the high ideals governing the Corps of Cadets in its acadetaic, miHtary, and personal life. Consisting of only a few written rules, the Honor Code is mainly a guide, for it reUes on each cadet ' s concept of right and wrong. One of the most effective and respected of such systems in the United States, the Honor Code is indeed the most im- portant cornerstone on which VMI stands. The real strength of the Honor Code, however, lies within each member of the Corps, without whose strong support and unswerving allegiance the Honor Code would not exist. The Honor Code is upheld by the entire Corps of Cadets with its judicial powers resting in the Honor Court. Originally, the Honor Court was composed of the entire Cadet Corps, but in 1870 the size of the Corps made it necessary to delegate this power to a smaller group. The Honor Court consisted of the officers of the upper three classes until 1952, when it was decided that the Corps would elect permanent members to the Honor Court for the sole purpose of interpreting the Honor Code, deciding Honor Court policy, and trying breaches of the Honor Code. The Honor Court is presently composed of fourteen members, ten elected from the first class and four from the second class. Seated, Left to Itiyht: R. .M. Haiiinor, J. II. B. IVay, W. K.

Who ' s Who in ' 62 The 1962 edition of Who ' s Who Among Students in American Colleges and Universities brought national recogni- tion this year to a harvest of First Classmen who received the Institute ' s official recommendation for inclusion in the annual publication. The quota for V II was twenty-two — each participating institution is assigned a separate quota by the publishers — and it was a quota large enough to give a well-rounded representation from the Corps of Cadets, yet sniall enough to confine nominations to an exceptional group of students. Annually since its first edition in the 1934-35 school year, the Who ' s Who Among Students has honored outstand- ing effort and significant achievement of students in degree- granting institutions across the nation. At VMI, nominees for the honor are selected by a faculty-staft ' committee which considers each cadet ' s scholarship, his participation, leader- ship and cooperation in extracurricular activities, and his leadership and general military record as a member of the Corps. Selection to Who ' s Who is in itself evidence of all-round excellence in all facets of cadetship and reflects the ability to combine, with laudable success, the academic work of a full college curriculum with the demanding daily regimen of military life.
