MAUKE1) -MONUMENTS 'Ihe mgsl< pathetic piece of statuary 1 ever saw was a,92-foot Image ol fiameses II, fjnt In n,jungle, shy an arm and a leg and all '.Hit lest, it weighs countless tons. Up,- rfehtlng it, baffled Egyptian engineers for centuries. I am no, art triUe but I was Impressed, most ol all by the skill and devoted craltjiinunshij) sllll showing on the weathered stone. Its helplessness was depressing. Monuments resemble reputations. They can be damaged beyond re pair by commonplace, things, soon forgotten. Storms too • trivial to have a tinme can, in a few short hcurs, undermine huse foundation: and leave stalwart landmarks'bur- ied in dirt. There are only two factors involved, whether you view It- literally or figuratively: How sturdy Is the structure? How fierce is the storm? Noble Inlflilinii'. Looking with a sort of pity nt tile supine figure, a relic of Moses day, my thoughts raced back to a well-learned chapter of American history. As a youth I almost wept over Andrew Johnson, a truly great man. Before he was many years dead, the things he.advocat- ed were proved, In the light of actual events, to be sound" and right. Hut Tennessqe scljool children were forgetting his name. By birth a Southerner nnd by allegiance a Democrat, Johnson was an independent thinker who wanted the United Stales to stay all in one piece. H e wanted to carry out most of (lie ijolicie:, that A. Lincoln had established, but he couldn't. Maybe Lincoln could have succeeded with the 1865 post-war problem; maybe nobody could. History shows only tin's:' A great man's reputation down; all but last. People The Same In my high school years I had imagined that President Johnson's fate was primitive, too crude for my enlightened time—but not so. In a few years It became our nn- happy lot to watch Woodrow Wilson, one of the grandest characters America ever produced, racked on the same bed or torture: post-war prejudices, a hostile congress, :a divided patty, and some personal trails wide open to rediculc. President Johnson had amazing foresight and a will thai would not be .walked on. We know that now. But his place In history was carved for an obstinate,. unsympathetic crank. President Wilson had vision unclouded by prejudice, vision that, over.-reached his century. But Wilson's contemporaries called him a dreaming addle-pate and painted out a name 'that should cd so visionary) if they might, have been backed by other' men ol his ilay and political station, could _ __ have made World' War 11 viniicc-1 \;.; , wsary.
