Franklin Street lists the top 10 Chapel Hill lies - one is, "Yes, Mr. Bouncer, I am 21." Another is, "I have not given or eceived unauthorized information on this exam."That, Trinh said, is an apt application of the campus system ofjus- tice he has seen. Moeser said he intends to see the code taken seriously, even if that means going outside of the Committee on Stu- dent Conduct to undertake reforms. But Coggins has been so dismayed with the results of his case that he plans to leave teaching altogether, even though it has been his dream since he was in elemen- tary school. "I am absolutely leaving academe, and except for a combination of circumstances both personal and eco- nomic, 1 would be long gone now," he said in July. "If we're going to take the honor sys- tem seriously, the honor code says that faculty and students are colleagues, they can trust each other;' Coggins said in ear- lier interviews. "When 1saw my students working together at a table and clearly on my course, because my textbook was there and the notes all had diagrams like we were doing in class, when 1saw them working together my assumption was that hey were doing right," he said. "Now that I've seen that even ifyou catch people the system will let them off either at trial or on appeal or not charge them because they don't have the resources to try them, 1 will not trust my students to be doing the right thing when they work together. "If we're not going to take [the honor code] seriously, it is worse than not hav- ing one at all." .IDl

Every 33 seconds someone dies of vascular disease. Each year
twice as many people die from
heart attack, stroke and pul-
monary embolism as from cancer.
But doctors in Carolina's Center
for Thrombosis and Hemostasis
are helping improve your odds
We look for the causes of heart
attack, stroke and blood clots. We
probe the biology of why arteries
become plaque-filled and why
blood clots. We track down the
genes involved in these diseases.
We train future scientists and
physicians. And we increase your
chance to live by translating
research into new treatments.
That's how we helped save Dick Richardson's life.
Your gift will help us find new ways to beat America's leading killers.
