was in progress. He was sure he
recognized the convivial voices,
especially of one close friend. He
wandered out to investigate. Bob,
by nature, is drawn to crowds,
like little boys to knotholes in
baseball park fences.
Nurses shooed him back to his
own bailiwick. He . insisted on
seeing his friends. He was more
and more positive in his identifi
cation of at least one voice, and
he thought Frank McGuire, the
basketball coach, had his office
nearby, so he wanted to see the
Irishman, too. One nurse . said
McGuire was around taking tem
peratures. .The patient then re
alized somebody was pulling his
leg. He went to bed.
"Colonel Bob," director of the
University News Bureau (who
was at the time convalescing at
home after three weeks in the
hospital) had pretty steep blood
pressure that night. The , doctors
also had given him some high
powered medicines which helped
to bring on curious hallucina
tions. At 6 a.m. he became hungry.
He wandered into the corridor
again, still under the quaint im
pression that he was registered
at an inn of some kind, and re
quested his breakfast. A nurse
explained that he would have to
wait a while. He waited two
hours, hungry as all get-out.
His doctors prescribed "No
Visitors," put a sign on his door.
That sign never meant very, much
in Bob Madry's hospital life. So

that his intimates included eyery

The 53rd annual tapping cere

of the Golden Fleece Monday
night at 7:15 in Memorial Hall.
Formed in 1903, the Order of
the Golden Fleece, was first con

by Dr. Eben Alexander, then dean
at the University and past envoy
to Greece. Dr. Alexander was a
first honorary society on an
American college campus. His aim
in founding the Fleece was to
see the University become the
second in the nation to honor
its outstanding campus men.
The order was established
largely through the interest and

Civil War days.
After graduation from Scotland Neck High School in 1914, he
enrolled at the University in Chapel Hill, where he completed his
A.B. degree in 1918. During his senior year Madry became inter

In an article printed in The
Daily Tar Heel in 1938, Dr. Wil
liams said there were diverse
cliques of students on campus in
1903. The abiding purpose of the
Fleece was to cut across sectional
boundaries of student interest and
to honor the outstanding men in
all fields of campus endeavor as
they should arise, said Dr. Wil
liams. There could be no harmony
or University spirit until all these
men of diverse interests should
"sit side by side at the same
table," he pointed out.
