In addition to his basic plat

"As editor I would conduct a
circulation survey in order to de

to a Tar Heel, and there should be
no excuse- for his -wt 'receiving

A conference between administration and student leaders was

Valkyries Honor Nine Coeds In Tapping Ceremonies Friday
Nine undergraduate women
tarped into Carolina's highest
honorary organization for wo
men, the Order of the Valkyries,
in a secret predawn ceremony
Recognized were Miss Mary

Carolina; Miss Kay Margaret

Miss Anthony Patricia Brady, Pcnsacola. Florida; Miss Nancy Mar
garet Faison, Rockingham, North Carolin;:: Miss Alice May Forester,
Winston-Salem, North Carolina; Miss Cynthia G. Grant, Orlando,
Florida; Miss Rita Patricia Jester, Yardley, Pennsylvania; Miss
Maxine Lorraine Lee, Bethesda, Maryland; and Miss Linda Rehm.
The Valkyries began their candlelight march at 1:30 a m. in their
customary black robes and hoods. As the march proceeded through
the women's residence halls, the sound of the golden gong called
forth those women who were recognized for the Valkyrie ideals of
scholarship, leadership, character, and service.
Following the secret ceremonies, a special breakfast was serv
ed at 6 a.m. in honor of the new members. Former members of the
Order were also present for this conclusion of the ceremonies.
The Order of the Valkyries was begun on the Carolina campus
in 1942 so that outstanding women students might be given special
recognition for their services. The name of the organization is
taken from an ancient Norwegian legend centered around the war
rior god Odin, who represents Thought and Memory and who was
Odin had nine select maiden attendants, the Valkyries, who
were daughters of the gods and yet were mortals as well. These
attendent maidens waited on the tables in Asgarri, but their chief
task was to go to the battlefield and decide at Odin's bidding who
should wirt and who should die, an then to carry the brave dead
to Valhalla, the hall of fame. It was considered a great honor to
belong to this chosen group because they shared the glorious com
panionship of departed heroes.
The purpose of the Order as stated in the Valkyrie Creed is:
"As a Valkyrie I will strive to accomplish gladly and quietly the
tasks which lie before us, to be unaffected by success and undaunt
ed by failure, to have an active interest in the welfare of my fellow
students; to act always with a spirit of helpfulness and to try to
inspire co-operation in others; to be sincere and considerate on all
occasions, to work toward a tolerant and sympathetic understanding
of others, and yet to stand staunchly by my own convictions; to be
above pettiness in all my dealings and to direct my thoughts and
actions persistently toward the highest purposes. As a Valkyrie I
will strive constanly toward those ideals of character, scholarship,
leadership and service for which our organization stands.
The citations read to the tappees were:
Miss Lee . . . "one who has willingly shared the beauty of her
own life with others. Her quiet and effective leadership has given
spirit to her dormitory, which she serves as President. Miss Lee's
work on Women's Council has exemplified conscientious thought
and a steadfast adherence to her own beliefs. She has continually
shown herself to loe "above pettiness in all her dealings."
Miss Grant . . . "one whose enthusiasm for the U. N. Education
Committee and the International Students' Board has helped to
create a wider interest and deeper understanding in the world
community. Her thoughtfulness in working for others has been an
inspiration to her associates. Miss Grant's concern for intellectual
endeavor demonstrates her understanding of the true meaning of
the university. Despite numerous activities, she recognizes the
value of the importance of each person's individual worth.
Miss Jester . . . "one whose concern has ranged over many
aspects of campus organizations. Her efficient leadership and quiet
dignity has been felt in her work as president of her dormitory,

example a guiding influence to many.
Miss Boortz . . . "one who has consciously devoted herself to
representing the interests of the women students of this university
through her untiring efforts as chairman of Women's Residence
Council. In this capacity she has proved herself to be an efficient

energy, as quickly to the small things as to the large. Her spon
taneous generosity and cheerfulness have endeared her to many.
Miss Faison . . . "one who has contributed to our campus
through work with the concert band, wind ensemble, and her soro
rity, yet maintaining high scholarship in the school of pharmacy.

The personal strength Miss Faison .imparts tc her friends has
brought the respect and admiration of her fellow students.
Miss Forester . . . "one whose determined leadership and skill
ful planning have awakened the minds of the student nurses at the
University, the district, and the state levels of their professional

and has vitalized organizations throughout North Carolina. Miss
Forester has gained not only the respect, but the love of those
who know her.
Miss Rehm . . . "one whose quiet determination, sincerity, and
unselfishness in fulfilling her duties in the iYWCA and in her
sorority have inspired those around her. Her devotion to high ideals
is combined with an ability to stick to her convictions regardless

Miss Rehm manifests her concern for the problems of others.
Miss Brady . . . "one who has unselfishly and humbly served
in the areas of YWCA. Consolidated University Council, Osmo-

awareness of these qualities, and by serving her community and
campus, she has indeed earned recognition as a mature, gracious
Miss Blackwell . . . "one w-hose belief in the brotherhood of
man has called her to face the challenges of prejudice and un
concern. As president of the State Ecumenical Council, she has

With quiet strength, depth of insight, and sensitivity to the needs
of those around her, she has worked in Westminster Fellowship
and her dormitory, gaining the respect and love of those win have
been privilcdged to know her."
President Gray, although "being
a person who wants to see racial
equality become a reality," stated
Jiat he "stands against the con
tinuance of student sit-down strikes
because of the sensationalism con
nected wLh the cemonstratiens."
Gray stated that a conference has
been arranged for Monday with the
Clupel Hill Merchants Association
in an attempt to reach some agree
ment, on .he issue. "I hope through
these means that Chapel Hill can
set a peaceful example for the rest
of .he Sou.h," he concluded.
EcILor Young declared that "as
long as th? demonstrations remain
pe-ctful. I consider them an ef
iective means of communicating
certain ' inequalities' which exist in
j this state." However, Young em
! phasized that "there is a fine line

In outlining The Daily Tar Heel's
