TWO MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JANUARY 21 BH 1936 through the long, dreary days of their greatest war and subsequent depression, which was sorely missed In these days of international tenseness. ' The sovereign, declining gradually for days, passed on to a peaceful end, unconscious in his last moments. Knowing that death was near, the royal family remained close to the sick room throughout the long, Bad evening. Just before midnight, physicians summoned the family to his majesty's side. The Archbishop of Canterbury, long a friend of the king, gave a benediction. In White Chamber. In the great white chamber, overlooking the Norfolk countryside, ·were Queen Mary, the Prince of Wales, the Duke of York, the Duke and Duchess of Kent, and Princess Mary--the princess royal and wife of the Earl of Harewood. The king's third son, the Duke of Gloucester, was absent. A severe cold kept him in Buckingham palace in London. Queen Mary, whose sturdy self control had kept her calm during her husband's brief illness, broke down only at the last. She wept as the strength of the man whose partner she had been for 43 years ebbed slowly and his heart action ceased. Turns to Her Son. Within the sick room, now become a death chamber, the queen turned from her husband to her eldest son for support. The Prince of Wales, who automatically became king at the moment of bis father's death, comforted his mother in that hour of greatest grief, just as he had through the ominous hours immediately preceding death. The royal family,' conversing in broken, hushed tones, slowly walked from the room. Its lights then were extinguished. Queen Mary, newly become the queen mother, retired weeping to her own bedroom nearby, where her only daughter, the princess Royal, and the Duchess or Kent attempted to console her.

V 10 nCENTS o f - t h e death to the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester at Buckingham Palace, the Duchess of York at Windsor, Queen Maud of Norway --King George's sister--at Oslo, and the Duke of Connaught, uncle of the king. The royal physicians issued their last bulletin; "Death came peacefully to the king at 11:55 p. m., in the presence of her majesty the queen, the Prince of Wales, the Duke of York, the princess royal, the Duke and Duchess of Kent. "(Signed) Willans, Hewett and Dawson." A youth riding a bicycle, «ith a dim oil lamp flickering before him, brought a copy of it down the darkened drive to the jubilee gate, the entrance to the royal grounds near the garage and servants' quarters. Death Is Proclaimed. Without dismounting, he delivered the case to a servant. Slowly, the announcement was removed from its old brown leather holder. The gatekeeper walked solemnly across the drive and in the light of two great lanterns posted the bulletin, proclaiming the passing of he ruler of the world's greatest empire. The chimes of the Sandringham church clock echoed in the distance after striking half an hour after midnight. Only the wail of the wind through the elms along the drive disturbed the silence as villagers read it in silence and turned away. Had Issued First. Sir Frederick J- Willans, Sir F. Stanley Hewett and Lord Dawson -of Penn, who signed the last bulletin had issued also the first on Friday. It told a startled empire that His Majesty's heart weakness must be viewed with disquiet. The sudden cold which the king developed in Norfolk's wintry weather last week, after coming to Sandringham with his family for their customary Christmas holidays, developed relentlessly. Never did he show any improvement after taking to his bed. Although he found some few hours of restful sleep, he could not shake off this illness as he had done another, near fatal sickness seven years ago. Even the administration of oxygen did little to ease his breathing. Contribute to End. The burden of his silver jubilee celebration last year, the death early in December of his sister, Princess Victoria, and his insistent attention to heavy state duties contributed to his end. In the last two days, the monarch was in a state of semi-coma, save for brief intervals when he was able to recognize his queen and to sign yesterday the document -creating a council of state to assume most of his duties until death. At the end, he suffered no pain. In the twenty-sixth year of his reign, King George succumbed at almost the same hour as his father, King Edward VII, who died in 1910 at 15 minutes before midnight. 35 Years Later. King George's death followed by almost exactly 35 years that of his grandmother, Queen Victoria. She died on Jan. 22, 1901.

George V ascended the British trone as "the sailor king"; he left as "the democratic king." Unassuming to the point of shy- ess, devout and faithful in religion, ard'-working, devoted to his chil- ren and home life, and with a dig- ty relieved by the twinkle in his yes, he typified the qualities which s subjects held highest. He sought a position close to the. earts of his people In a kindly and uiet way; unlike most men, he ound proof of his achievement in is own lifetime. This came strongest in the deep ympathy that was world-wide dur- g his serious illness of 1928 and 929. Then huge crowds stood night- y outside Buckingham Palace and messages and prayers came from emote quarters of the globe. "It was an encouragement beyond escription," he said after his first .ness, "to feel that my constant nd earnest desire has been grant- d--the desire to gain the confidence id affection of my people." Trained First As Sailor. Unlike many British kings, George did not begin training in childhood or occupancy of the throne. He vas the second son of Edward VII and was 26 years old when he be- ame heir to the crown on the death f his elder brother, Albert Victor, luke of Clarence. Meanwhile, George had embarked pon a naval career which kept him almost constantly at sea from the ;me he was 12 and which had carried him from cadetship to the rank f commander by the time of his rother's death. Thereafter his du- ies as heir apparent precluded ex- lusive devotions to the navy though, -vithin two years after his father ecame King Edward VII, succes- ive promotions brought him rank f vice admiral. Soon after his father's accession n Jan. 22, 1901, Prince George em- aarked upon an extensive tour which took him to Australia, South Africa and Canada. It was followed n succeeding years by a number of rips, including one to India. When he succeeded to the throne May 6; 1910, at the age of 44, the empire had a sovereign unique for his first-hand acquaintance with the world and the dominions he was :alled to rule. Stresses Imperial Sovereignty. If England knew less about the new king than perhaps any before, and at first drew vivid contrasts between his general reserve and serious aspect and his father's winning personality and gay removal of the isolation of the throne which had grown up in Queen Victoria's reign. George V nevertheless was popular and had stamped himself as capable of independent thought. The nation had had a sharp example of that in 1901 when he returned from his colonial tour and made a dramatic "Wake up, England" exhortation at the Guildhall. Democratic From Start, From the beginning, King George contrived by democratic participation in many public events and by other means to strengthen the crown as an unifying influence, divorced from domestic party strife, in the country and empire. King George, whose full name was George Frederick Ernest Albert, second son of King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra, then Prince and Princess of Wales, was born June 3, 1865, in Marlborough House, Lon Son. On July 6, 1893, he married Princess Victoria Mary, who had been betrothed to his elder brother. She was the daughter of Frederick, Duke of Teck, and Princess Mary Adelaide, Duchess of Teck.

Cownie of Des Moines King George was more than a monarch-he was another "regular fellow." Cownie momentarily stood in the glare of the international spotlight in May, 1925, when, according to news dispatches from Wembley, England, he informally introduced himself and his son to the king. The news dispatch of the time recorded the incident: "King George and Queen Mary had come here to visit the exhibition. While they were sightseeing, a middle aged man approached the king, put out his hand, and said: " 'How do you do, king; shake hands with America.'" King George was astounded, according to bystanders, but smiled, shook hands and said: " 'I hope you and all Americans are feeling well.'" "Queen Mary smiled at this. "Mr. Cownie then said: " 'Meet my son, king.' "Mr. Cownie presented his-son. "King George shook hands, then said goodbye."
