Washington, Jan. 29.-Col. Herw
Watterson, in a statement issued t,
night and intended to bring a "di
tasteful episode" to an end, so far <
he was concerned, declared that ti
issue between him and Governor Wi

He denied that Thomas F. Ryan hc

but stated that the matter had be(

the latter had "expressed the fea

Introduced to Dr. Wilson.
During the early summer of 1910,
was passing a week end with Cc
George Harvey, an old friend, at De;
Beach, his home in New Jersey. Thel
arrived for dinner Dr. Woodrow Wi
son, then president of Princeton, at
the Hon. James Smith, Jr.. late a sei
ator in congress. Dr. Wilson I he
never met before. The talk at tab
was mainly about the pros.pective nor
ination of a Democratic candidate f<
governor of New Jersey. Drawn in
the conversation, I ventured the opit
ion that if nothing more than a go
ernorship was in sight, it would be
sacrifice for Dr. Wilson to quit h
exalted station at the head of a gre;
university and get down into the bu
ring of politics to struggle for pr
ferment so ephemeral and uncertain

was explained to me. I was told th

business, I visited his home in' Princ

s- "The Ryan story, which has mad

'sacrifice of private friendship to pii
