"Beside him (Mr. Taft) the new President looked

MARCH 4, 1921.
From DavCd Lawrence's description of the scene
at the Capitol yesterday, printed in The Evening
"To the last, Woodrow Wilson seemed to be In a
fighting mood, though everybody who stood around
him felt that his feeble figure, belied his attempts to
appear in his belligerent spirit of old.
"Slowly Mr. Wilson wended his way along the
corridor for fifty feet from tho elevator Just to
tho right of the Senate Chamber. As he proceeded
slowly, he leaned on his cane and was unaided. His
left shoulder was stooped and tils left hand hung
limply nt his sldo.
"Surrounded by members of his Cabinet, Demo
cratic Senators nnd military and naval aides, Mr.
Wilson entered tho President's Room, tlicro to bo
greeted by Mr. Harding. An aide helped take Mr.
Wilson's overcoat from his shoulders and tho man
- who hail driven through the streets of Rome, Paris'
and London, hailed as the great peace-maker of this
generation, sank limply Into his chair.
'"I'm afraid, Mr. President, I shall have to beg
off' (from attending tho Inaugural ceremonies),
was Mr. Wilson's final remark to Mr. Harding,
v,ho told him ho thoroughly understood. Then it
was that Mr. AVilson, with halting step and down
cast head, his left shoulder stooped but his eyes
turned upward endeavoring to smile, trying to tho
end to exhibit a fighting spirit and an attitude of
no surrender, pns&cd out of official llfo Into tho
sunshino of the Ca&'.tol grounds, thero to be mo
tored to the privacy of his new homo and the con
soling atmosphere of colleagues and fricndR. faith
ful to the last to the Idealism that once thrilled a
war-torn world."
