PRESIDENT WOODROW WILSuN
The twenty-eight President of the United Stntes Is Woodrow
Wilson. He was born at Staunton, Vs., the son of n Presbyterian
minister. He graduated at Princeton University, a stronghold of
American Presbyterianism, in 1871), but the ministry did not attract
young Wilson. Minister' sons too often see so much of denial and
self sacrifice that they do not hastily enter upon their fathers' call
ing, lie studied law nt the University of Virginia, opened an oflico
afterwards at Atlanta, Oa., where he practiced in 1882-'83. What
cases came to the young lawyer we do not know. Evidently tho
theory of Inw had a charm for him for he closed his office to study
Jurisprudence, History und Political Science in the post graduate
courses at Johns Hopkins University at Baltimore. Here he receiv
ed the degree of Ph. D, for which degree he submitted a thesis on
Congressional Government, which is remarkable as being very
successful on the book market. There in only one other instance
recorded of an academic thesis which became successful bb a book.
From 1885 to 1800 he taught in various institutions, Political
Science und kindred subjects. In that year he came to Princeton
as Professor of History and Jurisprudence. His lectures became
exceedingly popular and he himself gained the desired standing by
popular vote, year nfler year, as favored professor.
In 1002 he was elected President of Princeton on the resignation
of President Pattou. This office he filled with great distinction, bring
ing about some remarkable changes und witnessing great growth in
the Institution. In 1011 he was elected Oovernor of New Jersey on
the Democratic ticket, after a fierce contest in which he succeeded in
overthrowing the mnchiue boss, Senator Smith. His term of office
would not expire until January 1014,
Tho characteristics of President Wilson are well net forth in a
Ileriew of HevietcM article in which the writer says, "That his prin
ciple characteristic is a love of fun. Ha sees nt once tho humorous
aspect of things. He loves stories und though not a story teller, he
is ever ready to illustrate a point by telling nil anecdote." He is u
good talker and speaks fine English. He readily charms his hearers.
His temperament is largely an inheritance from his father a man
of great personality, a profound theologian.
His face is modeled on Scotch Irish nncestry with theological
lines, betokening great strength but not beauty. After becoming
Governor of New Jersey, the family were overwhelmed by the public,
ity that speedily csme to them. Tho Governor was hardly used to
seeing comment on his features, tho length of his nose and tho attach,
inent of his ears to his head, but he finally took refuge in the follow
"There nro others moro linndNoiiie bjr far,
Hut my face, I do not mlml it,
For 1 am behind it.
The people iii front got tho jar."
He is not n smoker nor is wine served on his table. A good
sleeper, he posHesnes strength, athletic, jet not a devotee to sports.
He finds recreation itml henlth in golf.
He has n faculty of getting at the very elements of n disputed
problem- and is ready with a solution. Oftentimes he hits been able
to rentier material service in the matter of shaping legislation.
Probably no innn Iiuh come to the Presidency of the United Stntes
better equipped mentally, for the study of Governmental problems
has been a habit of a lifetime. Governmental methods, the intrica
cies of Mj)itics and the methods of legislation are well known to him.
His theoretical knowledge Ims beeu enriched by the experimental
knowledge gained duriug the period of his Governorship of New
The country lias much reason to rejoice in the personal character
nml the the training of the man who comes to the White House at
this particular time, for he is not only a mini of learning, a man of
principleitiid experience, but a man of devout and fixed christian faith,
who is ready and able to defend this faith from the standpoint of
Airs. Wilson is not a woman who seeks publicity. She is essenti
ally ii home maker, h woman of force aud marked ability.
The family consists of three daughters, Margaret, Jessie and
Eleanor, eueh one of whom is interested in some humanitarian or
philanthropic work. Evidently they are not iu sympathy with the
smart set or the merely fashionable but have a purpose iu life and are
Presideut Wilson has one brother, Joseph Wilson of Teuutssee.
The Ilihleon which Woodrow Wilson took oath of office w hen he
became Governor of New Jersey wus used wheu he took the oath of
office as Presideut. The oath of each office has beeu eugrossed iu the
Uible. Naturally this is a cherished possession of Mrs. Wilson.
Tho closing words of his Inaugural address were, "This is not a
day of triumph, it is n day of dedication. Here muster, uot the
forces of party, but the forces of humanity. Men's hearts wait upon
us; men's lives haug in the balance; men's hopes call upon us to say
what we will do. Shall we live up to the great trust? Who dares
fail to try? I summon hII honest men, all patriotic, all forward-look
iug ineu'to my side. God helping me, 1 will uot fail them if they
will but counsel and sustain mo." B.
