John Arbuthnot died. He was the
originator of John Bull, who is as
firmly entrenched as the symbol of
the British Nation as Uncle Sam is of
the U. S
The Scottish humorist wrote a book.
“The History of John Bull.’’ making
fun of the Duke of Marlborough and
the War of the Spanish Succession,
portraying John Bull as a portly and
Bullhcaded person The English did
not see the joke, recognized John
Bull as typical, and accepted him as
(he British National Character.
Feb. 27. 1765 British House of
Commons voted to impose the stamp
tax on the American colonies. The
act merely extended taxes which Bri
tons themselves were paying!
It required that government stamps
should be attached to legal documents
of every kind—contracts, deeds, mar
riage licenses, briefs, etc.
The stamp tax was already old in
England when in 1732 was proposed
to extend it to the colonies. The
prime minister, Walpole, said: “I will
leave the taxation of America to some
of my successors who have more cour
age than I have. Again, in 1757. it
was brought up. The then prime
minister, Pitt, said. “I will never burn
my fingers with an American stamp
Yet the governors of three colonies,
Pennsylvania, New’ York and Massa
chusetts had proposed the stamp tax
to Parliament, and Benjamin Frank
lin had approved it.
But it was taxation without repre
sentation. and the American colonies
broke away fiom Britain rather than
pay it.
Feb. 27, 1801 Congress imposed tax
ation without representation upon a
large body of Americans.
It took jurisdiction over the Dis
trict of Columbia, and deprived all
citizens of the district of their suf
frage. a condition that prevails to
this day.
Feb. 27. 1801 —Henry Wadsworth
Longfellow was born in Portland, Me.,
destined to become the most popular
poet of his time. He immortalized at
least three persons who otherwise
might have been forgotten—Evange
line, Miles Standish and Hiawatha.
You’re wrong if you believe that
Hiawatha w r as not a real person, and
a cannibal, too. He lived between
1550 and 1600, one of the founders of
Six Nations. His cannibalism was a
matter of tribal custom.
Feb. 27, 1855 —The clipper Donald
McKay, 2595 tons, logged 421 miles in
24 hours on her maiden voyage from
Boston to Liverpool.
This was a record for ships of he*-
size, and faster than any steamship
of her day could run. A sister ship.
Lightning, built by the same wizard
of sailing craft. Donald McKay, ex
ceeded this with 436 miles in 25 hours
the greatest run ever made by a sail
ing vessel and a speed few steamers
could maintain today.

Our university mills grind out writ

Genius may be the laborer tolling

him. He may rise to the heights, not
because of specific training, but be

Genius does arise. It cannot remain
quiescent. It rises against all the odds
There is a driving urge within a
genius that sharpens and grows as
the odds mount.
Colleges, of course, are necessary.
The majority of us—this writer among

Committees Are Still Far
Apart On Revenue Bills
(Continued from Togo One.)
of the budget revenue bill. In the first
of a series of joint meetings being
held by these two committees.
But the appropriations committees
told the finance committees that the
appropriations bill they have written
still calls for at least $2,000,000 a year
more revenue than the $31,500,000 a
year now in sight from the present
revenue bill. ‘Some members of the
appropriations committee are still un- '
derstood to be holding out for $3,000.-
000 a year more, or for a total gen
fund budget of $34,500,000 a year,
which is $5,000,000 a year more than
the amount recommended by the
governor and the Advisory Budget
Commission. But a majority of the
members of the appropriations com
mittees are believed to be still hold
ing out for an appropriations bill total
ing $33,000,000 or even more, neces
sitating from $1,500,000 to $2,000,000
additional revenue.
Those who are Holding out for the
larger appropriations are understood
to be those who are still favoring the
$22,000,000 appropriation for the pub
lic schools as recommended by State
Superintendent Clyde A. Erwin and
the school forces, as well as for in
creased appropriations for almost all
other State educational institutions,
especially the University of North
Carolina. A good many members of
the committee, however, are regarded
as being entirely willing to slice the
school appropriation down to $20,500,-
000 a year, which has been shown
will be ufficient to give all teachers
and principals a salary increase of
25 pel cent and superintendents and
other objects an increase of about
15 per cent. But, unless the finance
committees can bring in a revenue
bill that will yield more than $31,500,-
000. it will not be able to give the
schools a.s much as $20,500,000, most
of the committee members agree,
since they point out that even if the
finance committees have succeeded in
getting out a bill that lwil yield $2,-
000,000 more than the budget bill, that
this $2,000,000 must be more or less
pro-rated to all objects and cannot be
given solely to the schools. So unless
the finance committees can find an
other one or two million dollars in
new revenue, indications are that the
school appropriation may not exceed
$19,500,000 a year. This will give the
teachers and principals an increase
of about 20 per cent.
Some members of the House and
Senate, however, believe that the ap
propriations committee will refuse to
reduce its appropriations allotments
any further and that it will insist that
the finance committees revise the re
venue bill to yield still more revenue,
despite the fact that bill still con
tains the sales tax with all exemp
tions removed. For hte finance com
mittees yesterday rejected all of the
McDonald-Lumpkin proposals and vot
ed to retain the sales tax section as
contained in the budget bill.
Whether the appropriations commit
tees vote to accept the revenue bill
or not, will have very little effect,
since the House and Senate have the
j The International Pastime
power to revise both the expropria
tions and revenue bills after they
come from the committees. It is gen
erally conceded that both the Senate
and House will revise both of these
hills a good deal after they come from
the committees and that they will not
hesitate to revise appropriations down
ward if it appears that the total ap
propriated exceeds the total in ex
pected revenue from the revenue bill.
It is also agreed that there Is no way
the appropriations committees or any 1
one else can compel the finance com
mittees or the house and senate to
enact a revenue bill larger than th«?
present one if new sources of revenue
cannot be found.
It is possible that the House may
adopt some of the McDonald-Lump
kin proposals already rejected by the
finance committees. But the prevail
ing belief is that even if the House
should adopt some of these, the Sen
ate would refuse to concur and throw
them out, thus leaving the revenue
bill about as it now is. There is a
very real possibility of a deadlock be
tween the House and Senate later on
over both the revenue and appropria
tions bills, it is admitted. But indi
cations point to a slicing of appropria
tions rather than to any material in
crease in the revenue bill by increased
