REPORT 

OF 

The Adjutant General 

OF THE 

STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA 

FOR THE PERIOD JANUARY 1, 1931— DECEMBER 31, 1932 



To: His Excellency, The Governor of North Carolina and Com- 
mander-in-Chief North Carolina National Guard, Raleigh, 
North Carolina. 

Sir: — Herein is submitted a report of the operations of the 
Adjutant General's Department and of the affairs of the North 
Carolina National Guard, covering the period, January 1, 1931, 
to December 31, 1932, or two years. 

THE NATIONAL GUARD 

The National Guard of the several States of the Union, repre- 
senting 188,000 officers and men, the second component of the 
Army of the United States, is organized under the Acts of Con- 
gress and pursuant to the Military Laws of the State. The 
Federal Government, through the War Department, provides full 
equipment, including Artillery field guns, horses for Cavalry and 
quartermaster and other equipment; provides mechanics and 
caretakers for heavy equipment and care of animals ; requires a 
15 day period of field training annually and provides funds for 
transportation, subsistence and service pay for officers and men, 
attending such camps. 

NORTH CAROLINA NATIONAL GUARD 

The Guard of this State is organized along lines of organiza- 
tion of the Regular Army as directed by the War Department, 
and as provided in our Military Laws. The strength as of 
December 1, 1932, was as follows:

The State provides suitable armories, storage facilities for 
training and care of Federal and other property; provides a 
State camp site, the upkeep of which the Federal Government 
has from time to time provided funds, which has materially 
reduced the expenditures from State funds. 

The Federal Government expends annually between $400,000 
and $500,000 on the Guard of North Carolina, which money is 
distributed throughout the State. 

The Annual Armory and Field Inspections, show the Guard 
to be properly and well organized and efficient in its discipline 
and training. The Guard is officered by high class men and the 
ranks are composed of fine and substantial young citizens. 

STATE APPROPRIATIONS AND EXPENDITURES 

The State appropriation to the National Guard has not in the 
past two years been sufficient to carry on the work as properly 
should be, though every available cut and reduction possible has 
been made. Certain activities and expenditures have been elim- 
inated, though the Department has been able to function in the 
interest of the National Guard. 

It is necessary that the State provide adequate armories and 
storage facilities for the Units of the Guard; The Adjutant 
General's Department, for administrative duties ; examination of 
recruits; State camp site. The State laws provide an allotment 
to certain officers, having administrative duties in connection 
with their respective commands and payment of not exceeding 
50c per drill for 48 drills within the year to enlisted men. 

The allowance to organizations for armory rental has, during 
this year, been reduced from twenty to thirty percent by this 
Department. The allotments to officers, as provided by law, to 



Report of the Adjutant General 5 

certain officers, viz: Colonels, Majors, Adjutants and Command- 
ing Officers of Units and their Lieutenants — has necessarily been 
eliminated, because of lack of funds. Likewise, instead of paying 
enlisted men 50c per drill, we have been able only to pay 25c 
per drill for two quarters of the full year, which means 25c per 
drill for 24 drills of the 48. There has been eliminated payment 
provided for Supply Sergeants, who under supervision of the 
Unit Commander, the responsible officer, looks after many thou- 
sand of dollars worth of Federal property in possession of the 
Unit and for which, in the end, the State is accountable to the 
Federal Government. The same applies to Stable Sergeants and 
Horse Shoers with our three troops of Cavalry. 

It is believed essential, in the interest of an efficient organiza- 
tion with competent and efficient officers, that these expenditures 
be restored. 

THE OFFICE OF THE ADJUTANT GENERAL 

In so far as expenses and administration of the affairs of the 
Guard are concerned the office has been run on business princi- 
ples, conserving money always, securing from employees a full 
day's work. There is no surplus of employees. Those of the 
Department are all efficient, conscientious and loyal to their 
work. Salaries paid over the past several years to office workers 
have gradually been voluntarily reduced from 1927-1928 $18,- 
343.63 to 1930-1931 $15,814.67. In 1931-1932 the 107c reduc- 
tion was ordered by the Budget and then a general reorganiza- 
tion and further reduction in salaries made, through which total 
salaries of office employees was $13,610.60. In the present year 
1932-1933, voluntarily I arranged a reduction, saving the State 
annually another $780.00. In the expense of the administration 
of the office, items pertaining to its general activities, have all 
been reduced to what I believe a minimum. 

THE PURPOSE AND OBJECTIVE OF THE DEPARTMENT 

The purpose of the Adjutant General's Department of North 
Carolina, similar to all other States of the Union, is the organi- 
zation, administration and training of the National Guard as 
provided in the National Defense Act passed by Congress. It 
is the duty of the Department under the direction of the Adju- 
tant General to properly organize, equip and provide for the 
training of all organizations of the Guard. In times of peace, 
from the State standpoint a military organization is maintained 



6 Report of the Adjutant General 

for such use of it as may be called for by the Governor in case 
of insurrection, riots and maintenance of law and order when 
the civil authorities are unable to cope with the situation, and 
that the State may maintain its part of the Army of the United 
States as provided for by Congress, looking to a National emer- 
gency. This Department is necessary not alone to maintain the 
Guard for State purposes, but the Adjutant General is the 
Governor's and Commander-in-Chief's military head through 
which all matters of organization, training and administration 
of the Guard as required in regulations by the War Department, 
based upon the National Defense Act and on account of the 
Federal property issued, its care and the moneys expended on 
the Guard, are concerned. Within the functions of the Depart- 
ment are the handling of Federal funds and property placed in 
the hands of the organizations for v/hich the State is responsible 
# to the Federal Government; issuance of proper military orders 
pertaining to commissioning officers, calling officers before ex- 
amining board, special duty of troops within the State, keeping 
proper records of officers and enlisted personnel and discharges ; 
keeping up with National Guard, Regular Army and Training 
Regulations issued by the War Department; organization of 
units, checking payrolls of organizations for Federal Army drill 
pay; provide the War Department with efficiency reports on 
officers and physical examinations of officers and men; causing 
to be made periodical physical checks of the Federal property 
in the hands of each organization ; keeping the record in this 
office of all Federal property issued upon requisition of the 
Governor through this Department, including everything from 
hat cords and shoe laces to animals and heavy field guns and 
spare parts; handling matters pertaining to the Budget includ- 
ing the issuance of all checks issued on funds allotted as pro- 
vided in the appropriation. The Adjutant General's Department 
is the one through which all matters pertaining to the Guard 
are handled with the State. 

SERVICE SCHOOLS — REGULAR ARMY 

Under authority of the War Department opportunity is given 
to send a number of National Guard officers and enlisted men 
to the Service Schools. The following have been given this detail 
during the past two years:

Guardsman, selected through a competitive examination, held 
at the Adjutant General's Office, each year to take a competitive 
examination with those recommended by other States, and as 
directed by the War Department, for entrance to the U. S. Mili- 
tary Academy at West Point. Each year a recommendation has 
been submitted. 

NATIONAL MATCHES, CAMP PERRY, OHIO 

Due to lack of funds the Federal Government did not hold the 
usual National Matches as has been customary annually. 

AID TO CIVIL AUTHORITIES 

October 24, 1931, Battery D, 252nd Coast Artillery, station 
Greensboro, N. C., was ordered to report to the Sheriff of the 
County for duty in connection with the trial in Superior Court 
at Greensboro of one Asbury Respus alias Will Moore. Major 
Ralph L. Lewis, 252nd Coast Artillery, was ordered to take full 
command of the situation. 

June 19, 1932, Battery E, 113th Field Artillery, station San- 
ford, N. C, was ordered to report to and assist the Sheriff of 



8 Report of the Adjutant General 

Lee County for duty in the protection of such prisoners as may 
be apprehended in connection with the killing of a store-keeper 
at or near Cummock, N. C. 

The Adjutant General was directed by the Governor on July 
17, 1932, to confer with and assist the civil authorities of High 
Point in properly organizing the civil forces to preserve law and 
order and to protect property due to the Textile strike then 
existing. 

INSTRUCTORS AND SERGEANT INSTRUCTORS 

The Regular Army Officers detailed by the War Department 
to this State as Instructors are of the highest type of men, effi- 
cient and thoroughly interested in the development of the 
National Guard and are accomplishing splendid results. The 
same may be said of the Sergeants who assist the Officers in the 
training of the troops. The Instructors duties are mainly those 
of instruction and assistance to all in training. They work in 
conjunction with The Adjutant General in all matters pertaining 
to their work. The close affiliation and cooperation as well as the 
personal contact with the officers and sergeants now on duty as 
Instructors with this Department has been and is most happy 
and pleasant. 

CONCLUSION 

A very fine spirit has been displayed by officers and men in 
maintaining the efficiency of the Guard in spite of the loss of 
State pay and reduction of funds made by the Federal Govern- 
ment, all entailing personal expense and many worries and diffi- 
culties. All deserve the commendation of the General Assembly 
and the citizenship of the State. 

Due to insufficient funds a more complete report, embodying 
report of the Auditor, the United States Property and Disburs- 
ing Officer, Roster, etc., can not be included. 

Respectfully, 

J. Van B. Metts, 
The Adjutant General. 



REPORT OF SPECIAL DUTY 



31 October, 1931. 

Subject: Special Duty under Special Orders No. 278 and 279 AGO — Duty 
performed October 28-29, 1931. 

To: The Adjutant General, Raleigh, N. C. 

1. As Commanding Officer of troops engaged in special duty under 
Special Orders 27S and 279 AGO, this officer presents the following de- 
tailed report of activities and duties performed on October 28 and October 
29, 1931 at Greensboro, N. C, in connection with the trial of one Asbury 
Respus alias Will Moore. 

GENERAL STATEMENT OF ACTIVITIES. 

Due to the dastardly nature of the crime the citizens of Sumner Town- 
ship, Guilford County, were greatly aroused against the person of Respus, 
and were somewhat disposed to criticise the officials, who on Sept. 30, 1931, 
the date of the confessed crime had removed the negro to Raleigh, N. C. 
for safe-keeping. Repeated rumors had reached the sheriff and solicitor 
of Guilford County that an organization was being perfected by which the 
law would be prevented from taking its course and the desires of a mob 
carried out. On the night of Sept. 30, 1931, the day of the crime, a mob 
of about one thousand had visited the jail, but were prevented from 
carrying out their threat due to the fact that the negro had been taken 
away by the sheriff. 

In compliance with telephone request from the solicitor the governor of 
N. C. instructed that troops be ordered out to assist the civil authorities on 
the day of the trial, and the Adjutant General of North Carolina issued 
orders to Btry. D, 252 CA(TD), Greensboro, N. C. to mobilize on Oct. 28, 
1931 and to appear for duty on the following day at the trial. This 
battery is commanded by Capt. E. L. Faulconer, and Major R. L. Lewis 
was also ordered out for active duty in command of the troops. 

At a conference held at the court house on Wednesday evening, Oct. 28, 
Judge Thomas J. Shaw called a meeting which was attended by the judge, 
Solicitor George Younce, Sheriff D. B. Stafford, Clerk of Court A. Wayland 
Cook, Chief of Police Mike Caffey. and Mr. R. R. King, Sr., prominent local 
attorney. All details of properly protecting the prisoner were worked out 
and the presiding judge requested that soldiers take care of the crowd 
outside of the court room rather than inside due to the effect that the 
military might have on the jury — a special venire of which had been 
summoned from Forsythe County. The sheriff decided to keep charge of 
the prisoner while in the court room and to turn him over to the troops 
while court was in recess. In other words it was thought best to keep the 
troops in reserve and to further not assume a threatening attitude toward 
the crowd until necessary. It was thought by all that it was probable that 
no trouble would occur but rumors had been coming in so fast that all 



10 Report of the Adjutant General 

precautions were taken to assure a trial and prevent any action that 
might be attemped by an organized mob. 

Btry. D was assembled on Oct. 28, 1931, at the armory, with sixty-three men 
out of the possible sixty five present. All officers were present with the 
exception of 1st. Lieut. Bloxton who is on duty at the school at Fort 
Monroe, Va. The entire command spent the night at the armory. 

At 4:00 A.M., Oct. 29, 1931, Major Lewis, Capt. Faulconer and twenty 
enlisted men, together with the sheriff and two deputies with a convoy of 
six private automobiles left for Winston-Salem to bring Respus to Greens- 
boro. It was a hard and difficult trip due to the fact that it rained heavily 
but there were no accidents and the party arrived in Greensboro at 6:00 
A.M. being met at the Court House by the rest of Btry. D. The prisoner 
was put in jail and a heavily armed guard was maintained in the jail, and 
in and about the court house, the jail being on the fourth (top) floor of 
the court house. 

The trial started at 9:30 P.M., Oct. 29, 1931 and by eight-thirty all 
available seats and standing room in the court room was taken, and the 
crowd became so unruly that soldiers had to be placed at all entrances to 
maintain order so that the court could proceed. The crowd was so large 
and had accumulated so quickly that it was necessary to employ our entire 
force to control them and keep them from damaging the court house. 
During the morning, lanes were formed by soldiers and a continuous 
stream of people allowed to pass the glass doors to the courtroom to see 
the prisoner. After the noon recess it was decided to bar all from the 
second floor of the court-house that could not get in the court room and 
a heavy detachment handled this phase. 

Court ended at about ten o'clock at night and the prisoner was escorted 
to waiting cars by the entire Btry. less a few men left on the second floor 
at the entrance to the court room. The judge ordered all to remain in 
their seats until dismissed in order that too large a crowd should not be 
on the outside when the prisoner was brought through. The troops were 
invaluable at this point. The sheriff, three deputies, two policemen, and 
two members of Btry. D, took the prisoner to Raleigh by a roundabout 
road, arriving back in Greensboro at 4:00 A.M., October 30. It was first 
considered best to take him by bus with a large detachment but the 
sheriff later decided to take the quieter way and thus save some expense, 
his judgment being good, since the prisoner was safely delivered in the 
State Prison at 2:15 A.M. 

Btry. D. was marched to the armory and dismissed at about eleven 
o'clock, there being no further need for them. 

MILITARY PERSONNEL. 

The military personnel on duty consisted of the following: 
Major Ralph L. Lewis, 252 CA(TD), Comdg. 
Btry. D, 252 CA(TD) 

Capt. E. L. Faulconer, Comdg. 

2nd Lieut. W. E. Price. 

2nd Lieut. E. A. Thompson. 

Sixty-three enlisted men (Total on roll 65). 
Total on Duty — 4 officers and 63 men. 



Report of the Adjutant General 11 

messing of troops 

All troops were messed at Cleggs Coffee Shop at a price of 33% cents 
per meal and the meals were excellently prepared and served. Due to the 
short duration of the duty it was considered unwise to arrange our own 
mess, and facilities for cooking at the armory are not of the best. 

INTELLIGENCE SECTION. 

Three men were instructed to remain in civilian clothes and to circulate 
in the crowd at the court house keeping always on the alert for news of 
impending trouble. During the trial this number was supplemented by 
about six others, not members of the National Guard. These nine men 
did excellent work and throughout both days of the duty, continually 
brought news of meetings, plans etc. most of the information being cor- 
rect, or at least gave us an idea as to what the most radical were thinking. 
On one occasion advance news from this section enabled us to rearrange 
our guard to prevent a possible stampede by disgruntled persons not able 
to gain admittance in the court house. They also brought news of a mass 
meeting in Sumner Township at which it was decided that the law would 
be left to take its course provided the negro was found guilty and sen- 
tenced, but that if a verdict of insane was rendered they had pledged 
themselves to try and take him from the sheriff. They rendered many 
helpful reports and this system of intelligence is highly recommended for 
this kind of duty. 

PRECAUTIONS AND PLAN OF DEFENSE. 

Due to the fact that it was the desire of the judge that all citizens be 
admitted to the court house no measures were taken to prevent persons 
from entering the court house until, they became so noisy, which was due 
mainly to the enormous crowd, that they bothered the workings of the 
court. Even then the court room was filled and others were admitted to 
the first floor (the courtroom being on the second). 

All rifles were loaded, the bolt being allowed to slip over the top 
cartridge, and the pieces locked. All men were ordered not to release 
the safety, to open the bolt, or to fire without specific command from a 
commissioned officer. A supply of tear gas bombs were kept on hand at 
all times with a special detail versed in the proper method of operation. 

While court was in recess a heavy guard was placed in the jail with the 
prisoner and no one allowed access to the fourth floor. 

Plans were made in case of emergency in the court room to take the 
prisoner out a back door and up a secret stairs to the jail. A squad of 
men were on hand at all times to handle the prisoner and all men in- 
structed to make their way to the third floor at a given signal. This floor 
not only protected the jail but offered an excellent place for defence 
where our men could be assembled and away from the crowd with only 
a small stairs leading to it. 

All officers and men wore steel helmets and the men fixed bayonets 
before entering the court house. 

In case the convoy was stopped on the road, the first car was instructed 
to pull to the extreme right of the road and the successive cars to come 
abreast, forming a barricade, and thus enabling the car with the prisoner 
to retrace its march and avoid the crowd. 



12 Report of the Adjutant General 

miscellaneous incidents. 

The only damage reported was one broken glass door to the court room 
caused by crowding in an attempt by spectators to gain admittance just 
as the trial started. The troops took charge of the crowd after this 
happening. 

Two men were reported to have been seen with pistols just as the 
prisoner was being escorted from the court house. No arrests were made 
by the troops but quick flashing bayonets from the high port position, not 
only opened a passage through the crowd, but discouraged all hope of 
taking the prisoner from the soldiers. 

In the morning, while pushing the crowd back with rifles, someone 
tried to take a rifle from a guard. His start was good but the soldier soon 
retrieved his piece, not only handling himself well, but using extremely 
good headwork in not unduly exciting the crowd. 

COMMENDATION. 

The comdg. officer wishes to commend Capt. E. L. Faulconer, his two 
assisting officers, and his entire battery of enlisted men for their most 
excellent services. All conducted themselves, under most trying con- 
ditions, in a most commendable manner, were cool when the crowd was 
hardest to handle, and followed instructions to the smallest detail. The 
officers and men presented a fine appearance, all being properly policed 
and with their Melton uniforms properly pressed and fitted, the men 
looked most business like and efficient. This officer feels that they were 
a distinct credit to the already high standing of the military of this state. 

The daily papers were most liberal in their comments on the appearance 
and conduct of our officers and men, and letters are attached from the 
following officials of the court regarding the duty performed: 

The presiding Judge _ Thomas J. Shaw. 

The Sheriff of Guilford County ... D. B. Stafford. 

FINAL. 

It is thought by this officer, that while no actual trouble occurred, that 
the presence of the troops was entirely justified. The fact that there was 
no major trouble, that it was not necessary, to make a single arrest, that 
the court was allowed to proceed in an orderly way, and that the good 
State of North Carolina and the County of Guilford saved a blot from its 
name is evidence enough of the value of the precaution taken. The crowd 
of citizenry is also to be commended on their good behavior and coopera- 
tion with the authorities. The largest crowd attending court in the history 
of Guilford attended and it is thought to be the first time that troops have 
been called for an occasion of this nature in the county. The results 
accomplished and the duty performed confirms the old adage that "an ounce 
of prevention is worth a pound of cure."

Report of the Adjutant General 13 

HEADQUARTERS BATTERY "E", 113th F. A. 

Sanford, N. C, June 22nd, 1932. 

To: The Adjutant General, N. C. N. G. 
Subject: Report of Active Duty. 

1. Pursuant to verbal order by a long distance telephone, 10:45 P.M., 
June 19th, 1932, and confirmed by S. O. No. 159 AGO, N.C.N.G., June 19th, 
193 2, this organization proceeded immediately with mobilization and after 
assembling the organization, properly equipping the men and carefully in- 
structing them in their duties, the organization was conveyed at 3:00 A.M., 
June 20th, 1932 to Saint Andrews Church situate on a County highway 
leading from Swan Station, N. C. to Lemon Springs, N. C, and about 
seven miles in a southeasterly direction from the town of Sanford. 

2. Permanent headquarters were established at this point where the 
organization remained until it was ordered away. 

3. The undersigned officer reported immediately in person to A. R. 
Rives, Sheriff of Lee County, for duty in the protection of two fugitives 
believed to be at large in that immediate section, should they be appre- 
hended by the civil authorities. The fugitives were accused of killing 
two men in a store at Cummock, N. C. 

4. To accomplish the mission upon which this organization was sent 
two thirds of the Battery was immediately stationed as a guard around the 
area in which the fugitives were believed to be concealed. The object of 
this was to have some member of the organization at or near the taking 
of the fugitives so that the organization Commander might be immediately 
notified and the men assembled quickly at the scene of action. Supple- 
menting this guard telephone communication was established from the 
base for a half mile down two roads which comprised two boundaries of 
the area in question. 

5. The area is swampy and densely wooded, and the civilian guards 
were insufficient in that they would not remain where posted, and, as a 
consequence, the fugitives escaped from the area and are as yet at large. 

6. Pursuant to orders, the organization left its established base and 
was dismissed and discharged from active duty at 4:37 P.M., June 22nd, 
1932. The enlisted personnel of this organization should be commended 
for the fine spirit they showed throughout the tour of duty. Three com- 
missioned officers and fifty-eight enlisted men were present for duty. 

7. The local situation is very quiet at this time, and in the opinion of 
myself and civil authorities, there is practically no danger of any violence 
when the fugitives are apprehended.

ACTIVITIES 

The undersigned has performed the duties of the office as prescribed by 
Federal and State laws and regulations. 

FEDERAL PROPERTY 

The National Guard is in a splendid state of equipment and the complete- 
ness of equipment in the various organizations has been the subject of much 
favorable comment by higher authority. Organization commanders have 
been particularly attentive to the equipment of their commands and sub- 
mitting the necessary requisitions. Similarly, they have been prompt in 
disposing of unserviceable property as prescribed in existing regulations. 

This office has given special attention to old shortages of former organiza- 
tion commanders and considerable progress has been made in removing them. 

FEDERAL. FUNDS 

During the period covered by this report, the fiscal year 1932, the under- 
signed disbursed approximately $200,000.00. Total federal funds contributed

inspections 

The finance accounts of the office are inspected twice annually hy officers 
of the Inspector General's Department. The property accounts are audited 
once each year by the Finance Department of the War Department. In each 
instance, the finance and property accounts were reported as being in excel- 
lent condition without any adverse report. 

CONCLUSION 

The successful operation of the office of the U. S. Property and Disbursing 
Officer is largely contingent upon the cooperation received from responsible 
officers. This cooperation has been 100 percent and has made it possible for 
the functions of the office to be discharged in a highly satisfactory manner. 
The Regular Army Instructors have rendered valuable service and they have 
always been ready and willing to render all possible assistance.

1. With extreme sorrow and deep regret the death of 

(ATTAIN THOMAS NEWTON LEE 

Commanding Battery F, 113th Field Artillery, North Carolina 
National Guard, on December 26th, 1931, is announced. 

2. Captain Lee, born January 14, 1898, was in the prime of

there were many. He graduated at Trinity College, N. C, with 
an A.B. degree in 1919. The officers and men of the National

personal friend and the National Guard of the State an efficient, 
faithful and most valued officer. 

Record of Service

from which he entered the service of his country as a Second 
Lieutenant of Infantry, September 16th, 1918, serving in this

1918, when he received his honorable discharge. In the re- 
organization of the National Guard of this State, he enlisted in 
Battery F, 113th Field Artillery, July 2nd, 1923, upon its or- 
ganization at Monroe, N. C. He was honorably discharged to 
accept a commission August 6th, 1923, upon which date he was 
commissioned a Second Lieutenant, Field Artillery and assigned

1. With sorrow and regret, the death of

dence to Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and became associated

death a responsible position, requiring personality, tact and 
judgment. He filled this position to the entire satisfaction of 
his employers. A young man of the highest character, pleasing 
manner, and of a gentle nature, he had the love, confidence and

many friends and the officers and men of the Guard. The 
National Guard loses an enthusiastic officer, faithful at all times 
to his duties, and a true friend.
