George V, was not only the first of the Georges really to ba loved bv his pc-oylj. but thai he achieved this place in history not ' by'bain? brilliant or self-assertive or • Independent, but by being "good." George V was good not only in his moral's and family life, but also in'that lie was a carefully constitutional King, who never ran into a head-an collision with Ills ministers, as did th» Duke of Windsor, former Kir)',' Edward VIII. IJdr to Throne on leather's llr.illi Perhaps It was the luck of Gcurge V—born In London June 3, 1865— that lie never expected to be King and Unit, having adopted the navy us-'a career, he had a lot of foolish notions knocked out ot him by his fellow cutlets. His brother, (.he D»]ke_pf Clarence, was the heir 10 the throne.. George, therefore, elected to take his studies seriously. Like all aspirants for rank in tlie_^'sei)ior service," as the Brlt- lsh,"nnvy h called, 1 he became a student cadet at the age of 12. lie was-made a lieutenant, in 1885. After the unexpected death ol his'-brother, he was created Duke ofii'ork In 1892 and the follow 1 year 1 married Princess Mary ol Tejck, who had been betrothed to thftlDukc of Clarence. He was created Duke ot Cornwall In 1901 and, later in the same year, wa. 1 - inajle Prince of wales, after he had-, completed a long Journey to thft-Brltlsii Dominions. 111! the meantime, he ha;l not los'£Jils .interest hi matters naval, being made Captain In 1893, Rear Admiral In 1901 and vice Admiral in 10D3. His intimates insist thess promotions were honestly won, us they say, Gcorje was a renl-siibr with an ability to work like, one and to cuss like one. It Is recoiled that many a time' when battleships were coaled,' George knew what it was U> have his; face, chesl and arms covered with black crime. During the war, when, as King he.visited .the American balt'eshlp fleet,, Admiral Hugh Rodman reminded him of this. And to prove its truth .the sovereign went below and shoveled some coal inlo 0112 of the furnaces, lie. thus became the first. royal stoker lr the records of the American navy Faces Arduous Problems In tarlj Days nT Ileitn When, upon the dfath of his father, King Edward VII In 1910 the. Prince of "Walls came to thr throne .as George V, he was stil an unknown, quantity to the Brlt- isli'-'people. He was a sort of blank while page upon which they were later to write their verdict. He had not only lived quietly, but had been completely overshadowed by the enormous prestige of his grandmother; Qneen Victoria, and the immense popularity of his father. The new King, who was crowned-June 22, 1911, found a profound constitutional crisis : right on his doorstep-and one which tested his mettle right at the start. The House of Ixirds, largely Tory (n sjijipathle'i, had repeatedly ditched indical measures passed In the House of Commons by the'Liberal majority under , Premier The latter now proposed a bill to take from the hereditary House much of 'its former power. But, to become law,, it had to bs enacted by-the very House of Lords at which it was aimed. There was only one way to assure this, if the Lords proved obdurate, and thai was to pack the upper house wltli many hundreds of newly created peers pledged to pass the measures Asquilli wanted. The premier advised liis new King that this was necessary. And George V at once absented lo his minister If ncc cssary, he would create the new peers. It never became necessary, because, when Asquith reveabd this pledge, the House of Lords knuckled under. 1011 was further notable In the new King's life because he went to India and held a great and successful coronation Durbar. At home he showed his courage hi another way. For years the slander had been, peddled that, long before he married Queen Mary, he had contracted a morganatic marriage with the daughter of an English Admiral. In 1911 the editor of a small sheet, printed in Paris' aiid ped- <ibd in London, once more printed 1hls yarn. King Georges :cgal advisers promptly started criminal lib;l proceedings and proved once for all that the story was totally false. In 19I4 came the world . leaving George the only monarch Immune Against Bombs LONDON <UP> — Nine hundred men, tolling In secret, are making Hie new Bank of England an Impregnable fortress that will defy (Ire, Hood, burglary and air bombardment.

Such outpourings of cheering crowds, anxious to show their alfcction for the sovereign, were unknown In Europe. They moved him almost to tears. Ho died January 20, 193G, after a short Illness, a, man without an enemy In his kingdom. His exemplary family arid religious life, his strict adherence to his sworn duly, conduct hi many serious and trying times, caused an entire nn- tton to mourn ids passing. Gfcrge VI Hi'seinliles His Knliler Closely There is rather a striking parallel between King George VI and his father.
