"The reverse will be the case. We
speak of the national debt as having

tate expensive office build
3. The plank advocating a con
stitutional amendment to prohibit the
ippointment of any member of a leg
islature to any office created by the
legislature in which he served.
The position taken by Maxwell with
regard to school books and banks,
however, is causing much more com
ment than his third new plank, al
. hough there are a great many who
are heartily applauding his position
>n this matter. More people are in
terested in and affected by the schools'
md banks of the State than any other
of its institutions, it is agreed. It is
also agreed that more people have
been affected financially by the
schools and banks during the last'two
years and especially the last year,
than in any previous years. As a re
sult, when Maxwell proposes to ad
vocate measures to reduce the cost of
education to the 4ndividual parent
and to safeguard the money of de
positors in banks, he has at once
caught the attention and interest of
fully 90 per cent of the people of the
State, it is agreed.
Political circles here are still some
what stunned because Maxwell had
the daring and the nerve to take the
wallop he did at the “text book trust”
in the State, or at those publishers
who have virtually controlled the
textbook business and grown fat from
Ihe pennies of school children. They
also are somewhat breathless at his
very thinly veiled warning to the text
book interests that if they do not of
fer the State rock-bottom prices on
textbooks, it will not be impossible for
the State to print its own textbooks,
as other states have done and are do
The textbook problem has been a
tender political subject for year* as
anv one at all familiar with State
politics know. But Maxwell is th#
first candidate for public office or the
first State official to pubiioly recog
nize it as a problem and to openly
challenge /the book publishers and
textbook politicians to a war to the
finish. He knows, of course, that from
now on this powerful textbook com
bine will do everything in its power
to bring about his defeat and that
it will attempt to use the schools and
the teachers to help it defeat him.
But he also knows that his declara
tion of war on the high coat of school
books will win him hundreds of thou
sands of supporters.
There are approximately 900,000
children in the public schools of North
Carolina. The minimum cost for text
books per child, it is agreed, Is not
less than $5, while some maintain It
is nearer $lO per child per year. This
would me*n that the minimum annual
outlay textbooks is not less than
f, 4,500,500 a year, or one-fourth the
cost at the six months-flchoaLlfi«p* :

Tom Heeney, Australian heavy

fist behind Max Baer’s ear as the
15 cents tax on property was intend
ed to bring in for the support of the
six months, school term. In reality, it
is in excess of the yield of the entire
State property tax for schools.
The plan advocated by Maxwell is
that the State sunn ouy tne textbooks,
and then rent them to the school chil
dren on a cost basis. This plan would
reduce the cost of the books 20 per
cent, the commission now paid to the
jobbers and retailers, and make it
possible for children to rent books at
about one-fourth the cost of purchase
under the present plan, since Figures

have served to make Maxwell a very
dangerous candidate, political circles
here agree.
