Aycock s public life and particularly his term as governor marked what might be called the beginning of a renaissance in North Carolina. It was he more than any other who aroused the people to a sense of their back wardeness in education, and who in spired them with a desire to throw off their ignorance and move forward on a higher plane of intelligence. Ever since his day the State has been go ing steadily forward and upward in this great task. and. while little has been done by comparison with what is actually necessary, at least that much has been accomplished, and we have demonstrated to ourselves and to the world that we are alive to our needs and determined to climb. No longer are North Carolinians content to sit in ignorance, and it is to Charles B. Aycock. more than to any other one man. that they owe the credit for launching the movement that has brought them thus far. Polk and Jackson achieved their fame in politics, and after they had left the state, too. Aycock. of course, used politics as eminence from which he could preach his doctrine of equal opportunity for every child in the State, but what he accomplished was bigger and more far-reaching than politics It aroused the cultural and intellectual natures of the people. His service to North Carolina was in the furtherance of an ideal, the ideal of equality and education. It is for that that his native State does him honor by placing in the half of fame a great bronze likeness of the Wayne county citizen who helped to turn on the light that has meaaureably dissipated the darkness in which we had lived. WHEN WASHINGTON REFUSED A KINGSHIP. This bicentennial year of George Washington's birth has served to re call to mind many noble traits of his character, and has made Americans perhaps more familiar than they had • ver been before with the greatness of the man they call the ’’father of his country.” and who was honored by our forefathers as the first presi dent of the nation But no incident is more interesting, and none reveals a decision of more importance, perhaps. In the life of the country than that on the occasion when Washington had the opportunity to become a king in America and thrust the crown from him. It was an act of nobility performed fcy George Washington, on May 22. ''1782. Just ISO years ago yesterday. The story is contained in a release of the United States George Washington Bi centennial Commission. It relates that the officers of the Revolutionary Army bad implored Washington to assume royal power, place himself at their head, and rule the country as a monarch. On that day a century and a half ago. General Washington re fused this invitation in terms so strong that the idea was at once and forever dropped. While it Is casualty known that Washington cast the crown from him and refused the kingship, tha circum stances of that dramatic moment in our history are familiar chiefly to scholars. To rfecaii them now to the everyday American- will enable him to form a still clearer conception of the nobility of this great man’s character. This incident, which constitutes one of the critical moments In the destiny of America, occurred while General Washington and the Continental Army were encamped at Newburgh, on the Hudson. The surrender of Cornwallis had virtually ended the Revolution, but nominally hostilities were still in effect, and Washington was determined to hold the army to gether against any surprise renewal of the war. As usual, his soldiers were poorly clothed and fed. and Congress was deeply In arrears in their pay. By then the war had dragged on for seven long years. The struggle had cost many of Washington's officers the loss of their personal fortunes, and the entire enlisted force faced a future of want on being released to civil life. Discontent rose to dangerous in tensity in ail ranks. At length. Colo nel Lewis Nicola, a respected char acter on friendly terms with the com mander-in-chief. spoke for the officers as a body when he addressed to Washington a veiled proposal that he lake over the government of the coun try. with the army behind him. and rule it as a king. The late Senator Henry Cabot Ixidge. in his biography of Washing ton. states that on this occasion Washington was as truly tempted as Caesar, with an offer to make him self king or emperor. The stroke, moreover, would have been easy of accomplishment. The colonies were all beggared by the war Their govern ments were slack and weak. The Re volutionary Army was the one co hesive, national power in the land. To a man the soldiers worshipped Washington, and with their aid he could have taken over control of the nation As near as that, at this stage of America's history, was the country to becoming a monarchy. And yet it was a great distance away. To George Washington the temptation of kingship was no temp tation at all. On the contrary, he put it aside with far greater and more sincere indignation than did Caesar wave aside the laurel crown. In a let ter whose every word should be im planted in the mind of every school child in America, he declined Nicola’s offer and rebuked the man who made it. Writing on May 22. 1782. he said: "Sir.—With a mixture of great sur prise and astonishment. I have read with attention the sentiments you have submitted to my perusal. Be as sured. Sir. no occurrence in the course of the war has given me more pain ful sensations, than your information of there being such ideas existln? in the army, ar you have expressed, and I must view with abhorrence and reprehend with severity ... “I am at a lojs to conceive what part of toy c m< vet could havj ghrn encouragement to an address, which to me seems hig with the great, mis chiefs that can befall my country. If I am not deceived in the knowledge of myself, you could not have found a person to whom your schemes a'C more disagreeable... .Let me conjure you. then, if you have any regard for your country, concern for yourself or posterity, or respect for me. to banish these thoughts from your mind, and never communicate, as from yourself or any one else, a sentiment of the like nature.” THE WOMAN FLIES. Preparation and determination, mix ed with a goodly portion of confidence, carried Amelia Earhart Putman across the Atlantic in the first solo flight by a woman. She planned her trip and made it. "I did it,” she shouted to the Irish countryfolk in the little town where she brought her plane down early Saturday afternoon. That’s the spirit, and more of it ap plied in a like manner would be a mighty fine tonic in other endeavors right now. Mrs. Putman, back in 1927. a little more than a month after Colonel Lindbergh made his epoch flight from New York to Paris, was a passenger with two men who spanned the At lantic, flying from Harbor Grace to a point in Wales, the starting point be ing the same as that used last week. Now. five years to the day from the time of Lindbergh's history-making achievement- she tries the deep alone and succeeds. Courage and poise drove her on when danger threatened the silver and gold monoplane in mid-Atlantic. It began to spit fire, but she concluded it were as safe to go ahead as to turn back, and the little ship plugging away until it arrived to a safe landing on the other side. Two phases of this achievement stand out. One is the fact that the woman has demonstrated that her sex can do what man has done, and thus la added another field in which woman has measured up. The other is the advancement in development of aviation. Five years ago the wo man would not have dared the At lantic alone .and few men have done it that way and succeeded. To think that one may leave the HENDERSON, (N. C„) DAILY DISi’AfCH M 6 Tf'tf 'AT?, s *t A Y 23, 1932 “R North American continent this aft ernoon, for example, and tomorrow morning be in Europe is an accom plishmant to grip the imagination. Many are now living who will see re gular trans-Atlantic passenger service by air. A good deal has yet to be done byway of making flying safer and creating greater endurance for the mechanical equipment of aircraft, but all such feats as Amelia Earhart has accomplished mark another milestone toward that goal, and it is nearer to realization since this woman’s flight than it was before. She deserves and will receive the plaudits of the world for what she has done. .

Accustom ed all his life to arise at half past eight ho was, I discovered, still in bed at a quarter of eleven. He had moved, too, to a penthouse overlooking the East river. A musi cal comedy butler with brannigans took my hat at tiho door and insisted on mixing me a cocktail at that ridi culous hour. His master was at the moment rising and would Join me In an hour move or lees. “Wlhere’s the bum?" I wanted to know. “An hour me eye!’’ The servant, shocked, led me into a bedroom papered in deep purple. My friend, who I knew was moot comfort able in an old-faahioned nightshirt, arose from his modernistic oouch in a suit of elaborate flowered pajamas “Whoops!” I cried, as he told, me that he must now take his morning sunbath on the terrace. I followed him to a small ba lustra ted section of roof, ornamented by a huge umbrella, a number of snappy grgeen lounging chairs and a resembling a bathhouse. HOLLYWOOD IN NEW YORK “Notice." my friend Instructed, “the latest wrinkle for sun-bathing.’* He showed me, then, a portable sola rium, complete with dreesingroom, hooks, shelves for make-up. a cot re volving at the twist of a lever to catch the Ain at all angles. But. this day there was no sun. The sky was the color of old state, sullen as only East river skies can be, I jvondered What my newly plutocratic friend was going to u»e for his bath. I was not to wonder k>ngg. At that moment the butler valet moved forward wheeling a formidable ck*ctri£ sun-ray machine.

He seeks this office not ax a selfish seeker of pub lic honors, hut one who has a sincere desire to be of service. I ask you to consider this man. Tam C. Bowie, when you go to cast your ballot on June 4. the only candidate that tells the good people of this State the cause of. the present depression and bow to remedy it., The burden of taxation is on real estate, which haa always heretofore been the bases of ali credit in our industrial world. Every moving crea ture upon this, parth must derive that which sustains life. The industries from the smallest to the largest must depend for their existence and sub sistence. This situation to my mind is the most vital and paramount ques tion that confronts the people of the State at this time. Every newspaper in the State is full of property and homes advertised for taxes, and do you wonder that real estate has be come a liability. Tam C. Bowie says, "Relieve real estate of this burden of taxation and place the burden of taxes on the pro perty that is actually producing an is daily demon strated in this loony town.

The Book Os Knowledge income, and do not take but a rea sonable portion of that income for taxes." This is a time for people to wake up to this fact. Space will nor let me say more on this subject. Listen, only about one-sixth of the real estate in this State Is under cul tivation or producing any revenue or return, and our system of taxation requires this one-sixth to support and maintain all the individuals that live upon it. All the industries that draw their vitality from it, and in paying 53 percent of the countl, city and state taxes and bearing the tax bur den of the five-sixth that is not pro ducing one iota of revenue. Listen to me. the logics of events is likely to drive the National State Legislature back to the main road. Ever since the famous utterance of Chief Justice Marshall. Americans have known that “The power to tax. is the !power to destroy.” The farmers, the business that pro duces the wealth, is in no temper for punitive tax action.
