that follow in he wake of war Wilson,
who was in the group, cried out, "You
know nothing whatever about it T" and
with f.n-e as white as a sheet of par'
abruptly left the company.
All testimony g.jes to indicate that
Tom Wilson immediately took his
place as a leader in tbe class. He ap-
peared ns a young fellow of grr-at uia
turity of character, blended with i;n
yual freshness cf interest in aii tLi3
pertaining to college life. He had the j
manners of a young aristocrat. Ills .
speech was cultured. He soon won the
reputation of already wide reading and ,
sound Judgment. There is abundant
evidence that be was from the start a
marked figure among the men who ;
now constitute the "famous class of
'79." There have been more famous ;
Princeton graduates than these, but
there has never been a class of so high j
an average of ability. Robert Bridges. I

line; the Rev. Dr. A. S. Halsey, secre- j
tary of the Presbyterian board of for- j

Trust company: Colonel Edwin A.
Stevens of New Jersey and Judge Rob
ert R. Henderson of Maryland are only
typical members of a class of unusual
mental capacity. Among such men
Wilson from the start ranked high.
Not as a student perhaps. He was
never a bright particular star in ex- I
amlnations. Princeton graduated as ;
"honor men" such students as had ;
maintained throughout their four j
years course an average or l0 per
cent. Not less than forty-two out of
the 122 graduates of '79 were "honor
men." Wilson barely got In among
tbem. He ranked forty-flrst.
The fact Is that this son of clergy
men and editors hadn't come to school
to pass through a standardized cur
riculum and fiil bis bead with the
knowledge prescribed in a college cata
logue. He had come to prepare him
self for a particular career, and before 1
he had been at Princeton three months i
he had Anally determined on what that j
career should be. j
The class historian. Harold iPetei ;
Godwin, celebrating the advent in
Princeton of the members of the class
that graduated in "7!i. declares thnt on
arrival "Tommy Wilson rushed to the
library and took out Kant's "Critique
of Pure Reason.' "
To the library Tommy Wilson un j
! questionably did rush, but not to read
' of pure reason. If ever tl-:e was a i
student who demanded facts, concrete j
subjects, applied reason, it was this ,
same Wilson, even in his rnl'ege days.

Grandfather of Woodrow Wilson,
young man turned back to th first
volume of the Gentleman's MagsalDe.
Then, going to other sources, he took
op In earnest the study of English polit
ical history. He became saturated
with the spirit cf the life and practices;
or tne British parliament; the excite
ments of political life enchanted him.
Tbe characteristic thing about Wil
on e undergraduate days at Princeton
was bat hi work was done in practi- j
cal independence of tbe ordinary col-'
lege routine of instruction, at which j
even In those days he was sometimes '
heard to rail. His mind had now set-1
tied definitely upon a public career. '
His purpose in Princeton was hence
forth the ciear and single one of pre-
paring himself for public life. Always
he was reading, thinking and writing
about government. He was ia no ;
sense a "dig" and seemed to have no'
particular ambition in the coige stud-'
les. but he dev i:ed every ne:gy t.j t lie '

history of government and leadership

the elective system ten years before
Princeton did. His most intimate
classmate. Robert Bridges, suys of
him that his college career was re
markable for the "confident selection"
of his work aud his Vaey indiffer
ence" to all subjects not di.-ectly in
liue with his purpose. His business
In college apparently was to train bis
mind to do what he wanted it to do.
and what he wanted it to do he kuew.
He had already made himself profl
cient In stenography, finding it of
great value in making digests of what
he read and quotations which would
otherwise have occupied him long.
Princeton was not then remarkable
in the teaching of English. But the
men trained themselves in literary so
cieties. The body of the students was
divided into two "halls." so called se
cret societies, but really debating clubs
tbe American Whig society and the
Cliosophic society. Wilson belonged to
Whig Hall, an organization whose con
stitution had been written by James
Here the young man was in his
glory. He entered eagerly into its tra
ditions and became almost immediate
ly one of Its leading spirits. To read
ing and writing day and night upon
his favorite themes he began to add
practice In elocution. One of his class
mates troubled with a weak throat,
who was sent down to Potter's woods
to practice exercises, often saw Wilson

cations be wns known to spend a good
deal of time reading aloud and de
claiming in bis father s church at Wil
mington. Auother debating society or
gauized by Wilson himself, called the
Liberal Debating club, was fashioned
after the British parliament.

and win the prize. The subject for :

During his senior year Wilson threw j

on the subject of the American con- I
trasted with the British system of
government. This nrtlcle he sent to
what was regarded as the most serious j
magazine then published in America.
and It was immediately accepted for '
publication. The author was twenty-!
two years old and an undergraduate. !

od tinder which congress should be
again made responsible and swiftly

quarrel is with the practice of doing
all the important work of congress lu

Is the atmosphere in which all cor

should legislate as if in the 'resenee
