Ex-President Said -to Believe Influence in Country Is Undiminished. By David Lawrence. (Special Correspondent of The Eve ning World.) WASHINGTON". May G (Copy ' right). Wood row Wilson considers himself the leader of the Democratic Party, all other aspirants for that poBltlon 'to the contrary notwith standing. This Impression had been gradu ally gaining ground with the grow ing improvement In Mr. Wilson's health, but tho letter written to John C. Higdon, who asked the former President's advice about entering tho Democratic Senatorial .primary In Missouri, now has been accepted hero as removing all dnubts. In the letter tho formerPresIdent suggested that If Mr. Higdon be llcved In "my political leadership" ho would not complicate the contest by making It n three-cornered fight as Breckinridge Ixmg, a close friend of Mr. Wilson, had already begun his campaign to wrest the nomination from Senator James j. Heed, area political foe of Mr. Wilson. nomomits hereabouts who nrofCBS to know all about Mr. Wilson's political thoughts look upon the letter in Mr. Hln-rlnn with doeD satisfaction. They say It is full of meaning for ihnnn who have essayed to placo .James M. Cox at tho head of the FDcmocratlc Party because he was the nnmlnpn nt the Inst convention. Tho question really asked by tho Wllsonltcs and answered positively by them Is whether a man wno wns tul lprt(v1 tn the Presidency on tho Democratic ticket. Indeed the first Democrat In a generation, isn't en titled to consider himself leader of the party as against another Democrat who simply ran for the Presidency and was defeated. For that matter, William Jennings Bryan ran thrice for tho Presidency and doesn't believe In taking a back scat for anybody, but i in n tact that Mr. Wilson has on more than one occasion made It clear that he is tho leader of tho party, and not Mr. Bryan. TVii nttitmln nn tho tiart of Mr Wilson, however, hasn't prevented oithnr m.. rirx-nn rr Mr. Cox from re garding themselves as leaders of (ho party. But tho trum 01 mo inauur in ihnt neither one stands well In She graces of Mr. Wilson when leadt.sliip is Involved. , Thnrn ls-nvcrv reason to bellcvo Mr. Cox and Mr. Wilson, for Instance, are n i-fwl terms. The speeches of Mr. Cox recently have been right along tho same lines as Mr. wuson nas ex pounded, particularly with reference n tho Tjnmie of Nations, but it is an open secret that Mr. WHson has looked askanco al wnar, no nas con ( utrued to be an attempt to grab the leadership of the Democratic Party on the part or Mr. uox.

OKLAHOMA CITY, May 6. Who ill shave the necks of the boblcd hair flappers? This all Important question resulted o-day in a "business war" letween beauty experts and "gentlemen" Ixxr- bers In Oklahoma City.

Beauty experts made a counter at tack nnd warned dappers to keep away from the barber shops. "They may cut you and mar your beauty with thoee old-fashioned straight-edge razors," they declurfcd. Come to us, we use safety nizors." "Bosh." retorted Oklahoma City's leading barber, "Flappers don't like those new safety things. '' Of course I will admit some of my now barbers get fussed when shaving a flapper, but we haven't cut any one yet.' Both tho beauty expert and tho barber, however, agree on tho ques tion "Will the hair on a flapper's neck grow bristly if It s shaved often?" "Only time will tell," they declare.

Chang's army Is retreating In disorder toward Tien tsin. The routed anny left bohlnd artil lery, munitions, horses v and loaded camels, and Its wounded and dead. The total casualties In tho day's fight ing are believed to have reached from 6,000 to 7,000 dead or wounded. Observers hero believe Chang's sud den collapse has ended tho hostilities. The gates of Peking continued closed overnight on account of stragglers from Chang's defeated army surrounding tho walls. During the night the section of Peking Inside the walls occupied by tho Americans became greatly excited by an attempt of tho soldiers outsldo to ram the gate and gain entrance. The guards on top of tho wall opened machine gun tiro and dispersed tho attacking troops, however. No foreigners wcio Injured.

After Chang Tso Lin's defeat In the Fcngtal and Changslntien districts on Thursday he took up a position along the Peking-Tientsin railroad between the stations of Lang-fang and Lofo, His purpose apparently was to rally his forces scattered in the vicinity of Peking and prevent Wu Pel Fu's ad vance upon Tientsin. He was reported as expressing anger at the action of bis troops at Chang nlnticn and Fengtal, where on Thurs day they retreated In disorder, leaving the way open for an undisputed march by Wu Pel Fu on Peking. Before dawn Wu Pel Fu started a simultaneous attack on alt of Chang Tso Lin's entrenched positions to the southwest of Peking. By 5 o'clock, the Manchurian general had retired from Changslntlen, twclvo miles southwest of Peking's gates.. The retiring army fell back to tho Hun River and tried to hold a posi tion near the Marco Polo bridge,' but, under the advance of, Wu Pel Fu's men.
