FIRM HAND HELD PEN.
Last Hour as President a Com
mingling of Sadness and
Attempted Cheerfulness. ,
By David Lawrence.
(Spoclal Correspondent of The
WASHINGTON. March 4 (Copy
right, 1921). Woodrow Wilson's last
hour as President of the United
States wa a curious co-mlngllng of
fi.vln.M3 and attempted cheerfulness.
For a moment tho President appeared
as the decrepit figure that lie has so
often (been pictured since his physi
cal collapso two years ago, and then
gain as ho sat at his desk and
signed bills with a Arm hand and a
steady pen, his eyes burned with tho
flro of tio soldier who never surren
ders. To tho last, Woodrow Wilson
seemed to bo In a fighting mood,
though everybody who stood around
blm felt that hla feoble figure foclled
his attempts to appear In his 'bellig
erent spirit of old.
Slowly Mr. Wilson wended his way
along tho corridor for fifty feet from
tho elevator just to the right of tho
Eenato Chamber. As ho proceeded
slowly, ho leaned on bis cane and
was unaided. His left shoulder was
stooped and his left hand hung limply
at his side.
As former Mayor "Honey" FKz
' ceroid of Boston extended his hand
to greet the President", Mr. Wilson
quickly hung the hook of his cane in
tho upper pocket of his overcoat, nnd
standing for a moment smiled his
greetings. Senator Overman of
North Carolina, Democrat, walked
along besido Mr. Wilson und asked
him If lio would go out to the front
of the Capitol to witness the Inaugu
ration of Mr. Harding, but in a hoi
low votco Mr. Wilson replied that he
feared he did not have strcngUi
enough to do ft
Surrounded toy members of his
Cabinet, Democratic Senators and
military and naval aides, Mr. Wilson
entered tho President's Room, there
to Ibe greeted by Mr. Harding. An
aldo 'helped toko Mr. Wilson's over
coat from 'his shoulders and tho man
who had driven through the streets
of Rome, Paris and London, hailed
as the great peace-maker of this gen
oration, sank limply into his chair,
for a moment only, however, did he
seam nervous and ill at ease. Grad
ually ho recovered his composure.
Warren Harding stood over him. I
bending low and almost paternally
over mo roan wnosu urauaus iu.uora j
in tho Presidential offlco had caused ,
his physical If not political overthrow
It was evident that a kindly feeling
existed botween tho two men, inten
sified indeed by that human quality
which has trnodo Warren Harding 'be- I
loved by his colleagues.
URGED BY HARDING NOT TO
Mr, Harding made it clear that if
Mr Wilson did not feel strong enough
to go outdoors, he would not regard
it as a dlscourteuy and he urged Mr.
Wilson nut to do anything that would
tax his strength. ,
"I guess I had better not try It,"
remarked Mr. Wilson and Mr. Har
ding passed out to the Republican
tlouk room whilo the outgoing Prcsi;
dent signed bills. Tho first measure
placed before him was a bill autho
rizing additional expenditures for
hospital facilities to take caro of dls
ublcd soldiers, livery now and then
tho signang of bills would be Intcr
i uptcd by a handshake for some mem
ber of Congress who had stopped into
the room to pay respects. When Gen.
Pershing stepped forward. Wood row
AVllson smiled und, extending his
Kxcusc me. General, for not
Courteous to tho last, Mr. Wilson
had many kind words of greeting for
hw formor associates. Balnbrldge
Colby chatted with him for a while,
and standing cloao at hand, as of old,
wpx-JJostmastor General Burleson.
jvWas a truly Democratic setting.
JoscphiiH Daniels was there and New

committee from both Houses of Con
gress appealed in the room. Senatoi
Henry Cabot Ledge, and fomn r
Speaker Joseph Cannon, veteran 1!l
publlcans, were in the front row of
the committee directly facing Mr.
Wilson. Quickly thcro conic over the
Wilson countenance that frigid ex
pression which has on moro than one
occasion been employed by him to
express his dlsplcusure. it was evi
dent that Mr. Wilson was trying hurii
to fight bock something Insido of
him that rebelled at tho necessity ot
receiving that, final communication
from Mr. Iodgc.
"This "committee begs to Inform
you," said aenatnr Lodgp, "that the
two Houses havo completed theii
work nnd arc prepared to receive an"
further communications from yo'i."

frcomlngly with they peremptory 'spirit

"I havo no further communication
I would be glad If you would Inform
both Houses and thank thorn for thofr
courtesy good morning, sir."
It was that tlnal "good mornlnc,

The fallowing article was authorized by Mrs. Harding,
regarding her clothes for wear at tho Whito House.
Just as the photograph of. a diamond cannot convey
its lucidity and beauty, so tho photographs ot Mrs.
Harding cannot succeed in transmitting her charm und
personality. My photographic conception of her
quickly Vanished on meeting her, and tho living reality
proved an Inspiration that only personal contact can
I was Inspired. And to those, who do not bcllovc
that dressmakers need inspiration, I would say that
whether we create pictures or clothes, wo require tho
stimulus of a stimulating personality, unless, ot course,
wo mako dresses to a pattern rather than to nn individuality.
Iot mo confess at onco that, while
In some cases it may be thought that
clothes honor an occasion, In tho case
ot Mrs. Harding I was compelled to
reallzo that her personality would
honor tho clothes. '
MRS. HARDING WILL "HONOR-
It would bo supcrlluous to discuss
Mrs. Harding's wardrobo with too
close attention to mlnuto details. In
dress, It is tho general principles and
tho salient lines that are of prime
Importance. If tho lines aro wrong,
tho details do not count; and no In
gcnulty in decoratlvo details can take
the place of artistic fundamentals.
Wo beg tho Indulgence of tho reader,
therefore, in treating this subject, not
as a fashion Journalist, but as a dovo.

Thoso fortunato onough to come
within tho sphere of Mrs. Harding's
personal Influence should catch some
thing ot her wlnsomo simplicity from

designs. Dress not alono proclaims
tho man and the woman; It Is tho
outer garments of our Innermost
selves. Women who lovo good taste
cannot fall to find much to admiro and
emulate la Mrs. Harding's proforenco
for correct linos, rather than the lat

PLASTIC LINES OF THE PRESI
Mrs. Hardlpg has lines that are
subtle und that lend thomsolvos to
beautiful dress construction. They
aro plastic, ralhcr than rigid; soft,
ruthcr than "stralght-up-und-down."
Thus she appears to udvantago In

in frocks with girdles below tho waist '
