Placing of the statue of Charles
B Ayeock In the nations Hall of
Fame in the Capitol in Washington
is a fitting honor to North Carolina's
educational governor by hts native
state The tribute to him is all the
greater when It is remembered that
he was chosen above such men as
Andrew Jackson and James K Polk,
both presidents of the United States,
•nd known and revered the nation
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.
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
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.”
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

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. .

The burden of taxation is on real

been the bases of ali credit in our
industrial world. Every moving crea

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.

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
