Mr. Wllson's start in life was in the
law. Graduated from the University
- of Virginia, in his native state in
de 1881. he practiced in Atlanta two
to years, and then in 1883 practiced in
ra Baltimore while doing post-graduate
reI work at Johns Hopkins University. It
was then his writings attracted first
attention, and he wrote his volume on
congressional government. He aban
doned the law soon after, however,
and began collegiate work.
With the announcement that Mr.
Wilson would practice law, official
SWashington asked: "Is he physically
able to do so?"
Rear Admiral Grayson. Mr. Wilson's
physician, said his patient could, and
that he would be able to appear in the
of Supreme Court "occasionally." Those

of eip activities will be as a counws lcr.

ad Mr. Wilson will apply for admission to

days of the eight years he wielded the
speaker's gavel in the House. Those
sorrowing at his bedside heard the

By mandate more btnding than any
written law, Congress baely halted
in reverence to mark the passing of
the aged member. Knowing the vital
urgency of time in the closnng days of
a Congress, the farmer speaker seant
word to both houses, from what he
knew was his death bed, that no halt
in public business should be made at
In obedience the House halted a
half-bhour in adjournment then march

In that pressing work Mr. Clark
took active hare up to a little more
then 10 days ago, advising. his party

a cold struck him down to become a
victim to the infirmities of his 70
years of driving life. His death threw
