AN OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE
GOOD A PLEDGE AND TO
SERVE THE STATE
From time to time since that
eventful November day in 1918 when
guns ceased firing on the Western
Front, and the boys embarked for
home to take up again the ordinary
procedure of earning a living, ex
service men have offered themselves
as candidates for public oflflce. Too
often they have had no qualifications
for the office they sought, and no
claim upon the voters other than the
fact that they had served their flag
during the war.
This paper has always felt that
war service alone was insufficient
didate. On the other hand, it has
all along contended that when other
qualifications are equal that war
service should be perhaps the decid
All of us 30 years old and above
remember the high patroitic fervor
of 1917 and 1918. We recall the fly
ing banners, the panoply and parade.
We recall the solemn dedications of
the young men who went to camp to
the service of their flag. We recall,
too, the solemn promises that those
who stayed at home made to them
that they should not be forgotten
when they returned home.
Early in 1919 they began coming
home. Shipload after shipload came
all through 1919, 1920 and 1921.
Soon the young men who had come
home began to ask for fulfillment of
the promises. Some of the requests
assumed proportions of demands.
The boys were too young to fill the
positions they desired. Their claims
sometimes smacked of baseness, in
that it seemed that they were trying
to capitalize patriotism. The public
generally resented that.
Time marched on. Youth became
middle age- Rashness gave place to
mature judgment. The callow boy
became the experienced man of af
fairs. The service men reached the
age and the position in affairs which
qualified them for leadership.
For the first time the people of
North Carolina have opportunity to
honor one of those who went to
France with the highest office in the
State. He bases his claim to that
office not upon his war record, but
on the fact that he has won the right
to it in civil life.
In 1918 when his country needed
him in uniform, Sandy Graham did
not hesitate. So well did he serve
his flag, that he came out with
captain's commission. In 1920 he felt
that his people needed him in the leg
islature of his State and again he
did not hesitate. He came to the
legislature which met in January,
1921, and since that time he has con
tinuously served the people of his
county and his State. That exper
ience has endowed him with certain
qualifications for larger service now
as governor and again he does not
deny the call to service.
If Sandy Graham now claimed the
governorship as his right because of
war service, he would be presumpt
ous. But when his ability is recog
nized as equal, if not superior, to
that of the other candidates; when
his experience and training have giv
en him peculiar qualifications not
possessed by either of his opponents;
when his political philosophy seems
aptly fitted to the needs of the State
at this time; it seems to this writer
