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.

Long, Jr., Henry Moll, W. J. Smith, Ike Taylor, John Thorpe, and Ridley Whitaker. Baden, of Washington, D. C, is on the University Dance Committee, and a t member of the Order of the Grail.

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.

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 it. 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. Barrier Wins First Award 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 afternoon. ; 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 library. 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 they did.

Kattsoff Gives First Address 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 phy Department. 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 tions. 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 See KATTSOFF, page 4 CWC Group Holds Final Session Today Final CWC session of the year will be held this afternoon at 3 o'clock in the Grail room of Graham Memorial.

Campaign backers answered the charge of propaganda that has been laid to the campaign with statements declaring that "only the truth about Carolina should be spread." "No one has suggested that a pro fessional publicity campaign for the University should be carried on by the student body. Most of the prospective students of the state do not know what are the actual facts about Carolina. We should endeavor to inform them by letters home and by personal contacts during the vacations," said Oryille Campbell. "We should do more than purchase buttons," said Dotson Palmer, student council member. "Each student should write home the facts about Carolina."
