^·-"» ' . P0b. 23/ 17Ji NIMH CUr Cfobft-Cakcltc, Mason City, U. Herring Lauds Washington of f j, * i ' Imperial Mold \Clyde - E. Herring; 38, Des Moines, Democratic candidate for ? Governor, in 'speaking before the North Iowa Builders Exchange .-Monday night at the VFW Club on the* occasion of, George Washington's birthday, related a few historical facts as they might apply to the present day. Herring, who is a student of , "Washington's -life, having 76 volume's of the letters written by the ! first President of the country, pointed out that to be called "The Father of Our Country," Washington. stood out among the gianis of his times, The young lowan agreed with Robert Irfgersoll that America "speaks of Washington as a stajtue and of the- man we know but little. . , , - ; . Classifies People /··People of History-"may be class! 'fied in four categories, according to Herring: The nobodies, who are needed to make the progress and bear the brunt of the marches and campaigns; those above the nobodies, who are remembcrec but not. too widely known; those who are different, such as a Sampson or Nero; and those who are of the imperial mold, who really contributed to the progress of mankind, such as the Ceasars, Napoleon and, in our times, Winston Churchill. "Washington, known as the Father of Our Country, was not at heart a rebel," said Herring. "He was known as a Revolutionary general, but he began' his life as a soldier of the king, son of a southern planter and far from the rebels of the north in his ideals. Not Rebel at Heart "There was nothing revolution-! ary about Washington, but he had the courage to overthrow the con- . of the south when he recognized' the need for change." "After the revolution he re turned to the plpnt^tion again and lived there'until called to Philadelphia to take over as the first President, and h e " was the onlj President who couldn't blame anything on to 'the previous administration." Herring said that Washington asked the people what they wanted and how much they were willing to pay for it. He realized there could be no freedom for anyone unless there was freedom for all-and he realized that taxation without representation was tyranny. Need for Nobodies "World events have forced us to rediscover the meaning and significance of Washington's life in making our form of government different. Why shouldn't we apply his principles for the government of our state? "It is needful in Iowa today that we nobodies be faithful to the imperial mold of Washington, that we have the vision of the revolutionary pioneers and overcome our own natural reluctance to change, that we recognize a need in our state government for in- tellectual'study. _ "It is up to -us to seek a solution for the problems of our state, for -only we, the people, are its power U.S. hope,". Herring was introduced by Jim Gallogly.. Park Itinard presided.
