By Westy Fenhagen
As a final climax to the many spring
-social events, the sophomore class will
run wild all day Friday as they hold
their long-awaited "sophomore day,"
first of its kind in history class pres
ident Dotson Palmer announced yes
terday. Featured by a "Pajama Promenade"
on the soft surface of the new teniko
tennis courts Friday night, the day
will be filled with numerous activi
ties designed to please even the most
inactive of sophomores.
The purpose of "sophomore day,"
for which $155 was appropriated in
the class budget, is "to get sophs ac
quainted with each other and to help
them forget their war nerves for a
while. With full cooperation from ev
eryone, 'sophomore day' can be made
into an annual affair with lots of fun
for everyone," Palmer stated last
Sophomores will be required to wear
pajama tops all day and this regula
tion will be enforced by the soph day
committee, Palmer warned.
Other activities will include a soft
ball game against the freshman to be

contributions of educational institu

services during the past year, Russell
M. Grumman, President of the Na
tional University Extension Associa
tion, said in an address here today
that further adjustments and expan
sions must be made by these services
and that "this task calls for great
ingenuity, insight and efficiency.
"We must know the needs of our na
tion at war, understand the demand
for trained manpower, and know how
to adjust and readjust continuously
to meet changing conditions," he said.
Grumman delivered the annual
President's report at the opening ses
sion here this morning of the 27th an

"All of the member institutions of
our Association have demonstrated
their ability to meet the demands cre
ated by the national crisis. Many new

Golden Fleece Taps Ten;
Roland Parker Selected
For Honorary Membership
By James Wallace
Amid eerie music and applause from a Memorial hall audience
Sunday night, the Order' of the Golden Fleece tapped ten new
members into the regular organization, and named Roland B. Par
ker, Dean of Men, as honorary member.
The new members, including representatives from every branch
of campus life, are: Tom Baden, Sam
Gambill,Louis Harris, Bucky Harward,
T. W. M. Long, Jr., Henry Moll, W. J.
Smith, Ike Taylor, John Thorpe, and
Baden, of Washington, D. C, is on
the University Dance Committee, and
a t member of the Order of the Grail.
Sam Gambill of Elkin, N. C., now holds
the post of secretary and treasurer of
the Student body and is retiring presi
dent of the Junior class.
Louis Harris, New Haven, Conn.,
serves as cfirector of Student Civilian
Defense, and vice-chairman of the
Carolina Political Union. Bucky Har
ward is the newly elected editor of the
Daily Tar Heel, and T. W. M. Long,
Jr., is a third year law student and for
mer chairman of the debate council.
Henry Moll of Chapel Hill, new di
rector of Graham Memorial and edi
tor this year of the Carolina Mag, frac
tured his ankle Sunday morning and
was unable to attend the ceremony. An
nouncement that he had been selected
came- after other, initiates had been
tapped and were standing on the stage.
W. J. Smith, junior from Charlotte,
is speaker of the Student Legislature
and a member of the Grail.
Ike Taylor of Morganton is a mem
ber of the Carolina Political Union and
on the University Dance Committee.
John Thorpe of Fries, Va., was presi
dent of the Interfraternity Council this
year. Ridley Whitaker of Goldsboro
served this year as chairman of the
Carolina Political Union.
After the tapping ceremonies, the
new members were feted at a banquet
given in the Carolina Inn.
The Order of the Golden Fleece was
formed in 1903 under the guiding hand
of the late Horace Williams, founded
as- a means to promote better relations
among diverse factions on the campus.
To quote Dr. Williams' remarks upon
the situation at that time, "There were
eight different cliques of students and
there was no University spirit."
Worked out on the basis of accom
plishment in a particular field or a
group of fields, the organization be
came a success. Bringing men with
different attitudes and ideas together
at a round table yielded good results.
While the Fleece does not act for itself
on the campus, it does act through
various other organizations.
Not a Bit Jealous
Junior Views Senior Week
As Exciting, Delighting
By Ben McKinnon
"And lo at the University of North
Carolina, there was ordained that the
week of May 10-15 should be decreed
and set aside for the high and mighty
upperclassmen, the Seniors, to parade
in. And this week was set aside and,
beholden, the Seniors' did take full
advantage of it and stalked proudly
across 'the stage of college life and
purloined the spotlight for all their
activities. They strode royally through
the jveek, with a grandeur which seem
ed to fit them and they walked with eyes
to the front, and with firm and royal
steps and with shining bare feet."
"But what about the Juniors? What
did they think of this past week? Were
they jealous? Nope, not in the least.
Seriously "speaking, I think that we
Juniors were proud of our big brothers
as they passed through Senior week.
We realized what they had been
through to gain this one week of glory
and we were glad that they could have
On Tuesday night, we djd get left out
a bit. Most of us would have liked to
have seen the free movie and most of
us tried to slip in with the Seniors and
most of us were kicked out.
The Saddle Shoe Stomp, which was
held in Graham Memorial, was swell
and most of us who wanted to go,
managed to get in somehow. But we
didn't steal any of the show but were
sort of interested participants.
In Mag Hunt
Martin Barrier, junior from Con
cord living at 6 Battle dormitory, won
the first $5 bill in the Graham Me
morial-Carolina Mag Treasure Hunt.
' Barrier found the money in the
pages of the 1929 edition of Who's
Who in America in the Library. The
discovery was made at 2:20 Sunday
The first stated that he and several
companions started after the "Three
Rides to Newark" clue printed in Sun
day's Daily Tar Heel early Sunday
afternoon. They found a slip of pap
er tacked on the YMCA bulletin board
containing the words "three rides to
Newark," looked on the other side and
found the second clue, which led di
rectly to the $5 bill. The clue read
"Who's 2 1929."
"When I got up Sunday and start
ed solving those clues, I didn't mess
with that first one," Barrier remark
ed. "I caught on to that second one
right off." Barrier tracked the clue
to the YMCA, then waited until the
Library doors opened, scanned the
bookshelves and found the money. The
clue that he didn't solve, which read
"Look Behind Bulletin Board in Front
of Graham Memorial," would also have
lead to the Who's Who book in the
This morning another $5 will be
hidden at 10:30. Full instructions
are printed on the editorial page.
Reports came to Walter Klein, di
rector of the Hunt, that a forged clue
had been discovered on the YMCA bul
letin board, sending several students
on a false trail. "This won't happen
again," Klein stated, "because from
now on all clues will be stamped "Dai
ly Tar Heel" and signed by me. Any
clues found without a stamp and sig
nature are false."
Four more $5 bills will be hidden
this week. The Treasure Hunt will
end with a free and informal Pirate's
Ball Saturday night at 9 o'clock in
Graham Memorial lounge. Every en
rolled University student, except Hunt
workers themselves, are eligible for
the $5 prizes.
Thursday was probably the biggest
day of all for the Seniors and don't
think that we did not enjoy .it too.
Many were the bare toes that we de
lighted in stepping on and many were
the "corny" jokes made about the size
of various feet. That night we even
ate in the small cafeteria without much
griping because we were willing to wait
in line just a little longer so that our
big brothers could have steak while
we ate beef stew.
Between intermittent rains Friday
"afternoon, we went to the ball games
and many of us played against the
mighty ones. We played hard and we
played to win and we enjoyed all the
games, both boys and coeds especially
coeds. Friday night was really swell
for both classes because we were equal
ly represented. We both stood in line
for tickets and we both were going
to use them.
Senior week is over now and it will
be a whole year before another is ob
served. The Seniors are not the only
ones who can look back and think how
much fun that. they had. For the
Freshmen it was a new experience
watching the proud ones parade and
show off. The Sophomores had seen
it before and will see it again and en
joyed it before and will enjoy it again.
The Seniors went through the week
with their heads in the clouds because
it was their time to shine and shine

In Lecture Series
"When science is based upon racial
prejudice, it is no longer science,
Professor L. ' O. Kattsoff stated last
night in his speech "The Warfare of
Science with Politics," first in a series
of lectures sponsored by the Philoso
The talk, dealing with the present
conflict between the National Socialis
tic doctrines andfree science, centered
about the point that no sound scientif
ic research can be based on racial dif
ferences or upon governmental ap
proval or disapproval. Professor
Kattsoff, citing present German lead
ers, said "The Nazi idea of science is
to make it follow the will of the state.
Germany today is a state that has
raised itself above truth and attempts
to direct and suppress it, if the truth
tries to override the direction."
Professor Kattsoff, during his in
formal talk, cited a great many Ger
man authorities. Alfred Rosenberg,
in 1934, said "There is no free, un
conditional science, only a conditional
science. Today you hear of interna
tional science as a result of world
experimentation, but science is always
a matter of blood; all modern science
is the result of German investiga
Today, all German science has as
its foundation racial discrimination,"
Kattsoff continued. In confirmation
of his statement, he quoted a German
scientist and also the National Social
ist Monthly, both of which said that
