You have lost yourself . . . and tonight in the darkness of this hall you will find the Golden Fleece." These words from Jason's oration were spoken to an audience of 2,000 in Memorial Hall here tonight just before hooded giants stalked the aisles and tapped 16 new mem bers for the Order of the Golden Fleece, highest men's hono rary of the University of North Carolina. Dr. Sturgis Elleno Leavitt, Kenan Professor of Spanish; Nathan Anthony Womack, chairman of the Department of Surgery, and George Vanderbeck Taylor, Associate Profes sor of History; and 13 students were honored. Also, present officers of the Order were announced, their identities having been kept secret throughout the year. First to be tapped was Ray Simpson Farris, Charlotte; then came Stanley Warren Black, III, Charlotte; William Floyd Sayers Jr., Gastonia; Henry Newton Patterson Jr.', Manhasset, N. Y.; Lewis Odis Rush Jr., Asheboro; Hans Ru dolf Frankfort, East Orange, N. J.; Charles Farris Himes, Brevard; George Worth Campbell Jr., High Point; David Eugene Price, Erwin, Tennessee; Willis Padgett Whichard, Durham; Louis Haynes Gump, Johnson City, Tennessee; Nor ton Fortune Tennille Jr., Winston-Salem; and Denton Lotz, Northport, New York. All of the students are seniors except Farris, Patterson, Campbell, Whichard, who are juniors; and Frankfort, who is a graduate student. Officers Announced It was announced that Harvey Peck, Durham, has been Jason (president) of the 657-member organization during the 1960-61 academic year. Robert Vernon Fulk Jr., Wilming ton, was introduced as Hyparchos (vice-president); Howard Holderness Jr., Greensboro, as Grammateus (secretary); and Raymond Stanley, Chapel Hill, as Chrystopher (treasurer). The dramatic hour-long ceremony included the reading of the legend of Jason and the quest for the Golden F leece. Kenneth Lawing Penegar, former Jason of the Order and third-year law student at the University, was the narrator of the legend. - Active Argonauts appeared on the stage with the new members at the .conclusion of the program. They included Paul Gene Strassler, Harvey Peck, James "Martin Scott, David Lee Grigg, Lawrence Byron Austin, III, Robert Vernon Fulk Jr., Roger Babson Foushee, and Maurice Glen Johnson, all students in the University. Occupying special seats in the auditorium were alumni members of the Order, who joined active members and ini tiates for a banquet at the Carolina-Inn following the tap ping ceremony. Main speaker for this occasion, a closed meet ing of the Order, was Argonaut Terry Sanford, Governor of the State of North Carolina. He was tapped into the Order as a student in 1941. Jason's Speech The annual oration of Jason gives some indication of the significance of membership in the order. In delivering it, Peck said, "The qualities sought in Argonauts of old are as real anfd as necessary today as in days past." "In a world pleading for leadership," he continued, "is it not proper that we here in all humility attempt to honor those qualities of leadership and the men among us who emulate them?" , "To those chosen, let it be a tribute to work well done. To others, let it be an encouragement to higher achievement. To still others, let it be a challenge to prove the omissions of this night a testimony to human error in judgment." Referring to the years of University history when "there have always been those who have risen in times of need and crisis, have loved this place, and given themselves in devoted service to it," Jason- said, "it is they and their ideal which made it great." He stated that the Fleece fifty-eight years ago when it was organized "became guardian of this ideal that it might have its fullest realization." "In those men honored tonight and in their desires to give fully to University life are mirrored the qualities on which this ideal depends," he said.

MCCARTHY United Press International A fighting force of Cuban rebels invaded their homeland by air and sea today only 90 miles from Havana, and Premier Fidel Castro declared a state of national emer gency. Rebel troops swamped ashore after midnight in the swampy area around the Bahia de Cochinos, the Bay of Pigs. The invasion area lies at the south of Matanzas Province below Havana. First indications were that the casualties were heavy. Near midday the largest radio station in Havana, CMQ, was heard announcing that Castro had declared a state of national emergency. There were reports segments of the Cuban navy had revolted. For more than an hour this morning naval sta tions were heard trying to raise Cuban naval headquarters in Havana by radio. Castro has conducted four major purges of the Navy -in the--last-Tear. Uprising Hinted Castro called for action against "those who are sur prised committing . . . sabot age, shooting, or assassination attempts" indicating that an uprising within Cuba had ac companied the invasion. In a broadcast statement Cas tro identified himself as "commander-in-chief and prime minister," indicating that he had assumed personal command. President Osvaldo Dorticos pre viously had been designated as commander-in-chief of the armed forces. Streams of persons were re ported jamming the roads into the Escambray Mountains where guerilla bands have been oper ating against Castro. They were believQd to be civilians on the move and not invaders. As the government acted to fight off the invaders, Cuba had charged in the United Nations PETITE DRAMATIQUE . . . set for weekend The appointments of Dwight Wheless as Presidential Assist ant and Allen Cronenbcrg as Attorney General were an nounced yesterday by Student Body President Bill Harriss. Wheless, a sophomore from High Point, is currently floor leader in Student Legislature for the Student Party and chair man of the Ways and Means Committee. He has also served as a dele gate to State Student Legisla ture and as vice-chairman of the party. Of the appointment, Presi dent Harriss said: "Dwight has been one of the key men in the rise of the Stu dent Party this year and one of the men whose interest, dedi cation and enthusiasm has brought the party to its present heights. "He has applied the same en thusiasm in everything he has attempted since he came to Carolina. I am certain that he will do an excellent job as Presidential Assistant." Wheless will serve in coor dinating the. executive staff with Student Government in general, setting up appoint ments and keeping an eye on Student Government commit tees and presidential activities. Cronenberg, a junior from Rocky Mount, advocated a three point program for his staff for the coming year. First, he hopes to educate the student body in the philosophy of the honor sys tem at Carolina. Second, he wants the staff to act as a "middle man" between the university administration (which decides whether or not to have a student charged with an Honor or Campus Code vio lation heard before one of the honor councils) and the coun cils themselves. Third, Cronenberg said some re-organizational work on the Attorney General's staff needs to be done. The recent Consti tutional amendment which in effect abolished the Student Council will make necessary some shuffling of the staff and its investigative work. Cronenberg said that he hopes to work with Student Legisla ture in connection with any new judicial legislation to come up. that the attack was waged by mercenaries" from bases in Florida, and Guatemala. The in vasion, Cuba said,, was financed by the United States. " U.S. Sympathetic In Washington, Secretary of State Dean Rusk denied that the invasion came from Ameri can soil, but said the United States is sympathetic with the invaders' aims. The landing by anti-Castro was accompanied by a rebel radio appeal for a simultaneous uprising within Cuba. Several hours after dawn the government's internal radio communications system, which had been commandeered by the army, reported invaders were dropping by parachute, that planes were bombing and straf ing the beachhead area, and that j two gunboats supported the as sault.

Rusk said the Cuban affair was one for the Cubans them selves to settle but that the United States was not indiffer ent to the extension of Com munist tyranny in this hemis phere. No Intervention He pledged again that there would be no armed American intervention in Cuba. He hedg ed, however, when asked at his news conference whether this meant the United States was abandoning its traditional right to go to the aid of endangered American citizens. Rusk said that was a ques tion he would have to leave for the future. Nor would he predict what ac tion the United States might take if Russia intervenes on Castro's side. While ruling out intervention to aid the anti-Castro forces, Rusk said there was no doubt fighting for freedom. :rTir1ar:Vi in Thr awarrf is nrP- tary-treasurer.
