many respects the momt unueual that ever inhabited the White Houne It commanded from mil-Hone an admiration approaching worship it aroused in others aver Clone amounting to hatred Mr Wi laon himself acknowledged that he had a "single track mind" Friends acknowledged he watt remerved critics maid he was cold His few intimates declared he watt neither and Joined in acclaiming him one of the most delightful of associates Mr Wilson's seclueion and mcarcity of intimates were among his outstanding characterietics It was said of him by theme who ought to know that he called only two men of his wide acquaintance by their first names They were Cleveland Dodge and Cyrus McCormick GRAYSON FAST FRIEND The one enduring friend4111p Which Mr Wilson made in the White Houme was his 11rsonal physician Rear Admiral Cary Grayson who restored him to health when he came into the presidency a sick man watched over him as he would a new-born babe and finally mriatched him from a deathbed at the time of his breakdown and prolonged his life several years aft4r he left the White House They never quarreled although their friendship was a most intimate one When he got he did get mad once in awhile just as any other was his favorite trick to jam on his hat and walk around the block to "cool off" He did that when he heard the Germans had torpedoed the Lusitania Than he came back to his study full master of his emotions and penned the history note to Germany which forecast war He read it to the cabinet and the secretary of state after it was well over the cables toward Berlin It was typical of Wilson's way Having decided on a course of action he wanted no advice Cabinet meetings during the Wilson adminietration were described by those who chafed under the restraints as a morning in the school room with the "school master" at the head of the table HAD MISINFORMATION It was said of Mr Wilson that his seclusion in the White House resulted partially at least from some misinformation he got about Washington and its atmosphere before he took Somebody so the story went Journeyed to Princeton and told him there was a local ring of social celebrities bankers a in L71'1711'3-1 ihing rack

when he learned of it The agitation in congrese finally came to a head and It was determined to "find out whether we have a President or not" as one political leader expressed it The Mexican mituation furnished the occamion for passing a resolution which the senate decided warranted a conferenee of the foreign relations committee with the President Much to their surprise the senators were ushered into the sickroom where the President shook hands with his right hand fumbled with some documente with his left and discuesed the Mexican situation with marked mental agility That demonstration exploded the rumors that Mr Wilson was a maniac unconscious a prisoner or so disabled that he was unable to talk business It demonstrated however that he wan etill a sick man showing a remarkable

nature of his fatal illness was concealed from the world for months because he feared OM lic knowledge of it while he was President might lead to a stock market panic end possibly far reaching consequences to a world then passing through the find stages of poet-war reconetrucdon Some of the details came out piecemeal and over a long Period of time Others have not been hitherto publimhed It was appropriate therefore to give them now that he is dead INDICATION OF ILLNESS The first indication of merious illness came during the night of September 25 1919 while the Freeident's train was between Pueblo Colo and Wichita None of his party suspected the breaking point wam so near When Mr Wilson finished speaking at Pueblo that afternoon he was exhausted end covered with clammy perspiration An examination by Dr Grayson disclosed nothing markedly wrong and he was put to bed Soon after midnight he complained of feeling ill and Dr Grayson found him in a state of nervous exhaustion with the right side of his face twitehing as it often had done before when he was very tired and worn out STROKE IMPENDING But the physician was alarmed and shocked to note a droning of saliva from a corner of the President's mouth and also droppin of the facial muscles on the left side Recognizing immediately that a stroke of paralysis was impending Dr Grayson warned Mr Wilson of his grave condition strongly suggested that he cancel the remainder of the tour and immediately return to Washington and in conclusion that he try and get some sleep "I won't be able to sleep at all doctor if you say I must cancel the trip" Mr Wilson responded "Even if giving my own life would accomlimh this object I 'gladly would give it" The physician quieted his patient as best he could and took step to cancel the remainder of the speaking engagements and bring the President to Washington On September 26 and 27 as his special trail rolled along toward Washington the President rested and slept They arrived home Sunday morning September 28 at 11 o'clock For the first time In three days Mr Wilson rose from his bed and walked to the White House motor car which awaited him INCIDENT AT STATION Although there was no crowd to welcome him the railway terminal Mr Wilson as his car drove off solemnly raised his hat and bowed as if returning greetings from a great throng as he had done so many times in the past The incident was explained I by physicians as being a case of abstraction heightened by his exhausted condition and suggested by habit But it was magnified Into a rumor that Mr Wilson had lost his mind The period of rest seemed to be making good progress and on September 30 Dr Grayson announced that the President had passed the best day since the beginning of his breakdown About 4 o'clock on the morning of October 5 Mrs Wilson heard the President In the bathroom calling in a weak voice Dr Grayson wart summoned and to his horror found Mr Wilson prostrate on the bathroom floor In a semi-conscious condition he had fallen as if wounded in the left leg with the member crumpled under him FOUND UNCONSCOUS The physician rolled the prostrate form fully onto the rug and then grasping the rug by two corners dragged his burden across the hall into a bedchamber and finding himself unequal to the task of lifting the President into bed alone called Mrs Wilson and together they succeeded During all this ordeal the President's wife was cool and offered suggestions to the physician Once in bed the President seemed to regain his senses and murmured that he felt sleepy The telltale drooling of saliva from the President's mouth and the twitching of the face were there again They wrote their own diagnosis Woodrow Wilson had been paralyzed on his left side and lay in the Shadow of death With the first movement of his lips he extracted a promise from the doctor and his wife that his condition if serious must not become known A consultation developed that Mr Wilson had suffered a cerebral blood clot in one of the blood vessels in the right side of his brain Its effect was to impair the motor nerves of the left side as well as the sensitory nerves For the next week Mr Wilson hovered between life and death In a few days there was some response to treatment SECRECY CAUSES TROUBLE Meanwhile the secrecy which surrounded the details of the Presidebt'S Illness gave rise to Congress wanted to know whether he had suffered a constitutional disability to perform the functions ofehis office Mr Wileon and his wife were determined that congress shouldn't find out Members of the cabinet found It fruit-lees to ask for an audience In the sickroom Some of the members who were not in accord with the policy of secrecy determined to force things a little Secretary Laneing then at the head of the state 'department quizzed Dr Oravmon and Secretary called a meeting of the cabinet and Tumulty Mr Lansing however was not supported by the other cabinet members and the

during the swing aeross the country his willingness to make the great sacrifice for the treaty "if I felt that I permonally stood In the way of this settlement" he said at Omaha "I would be glad to die that it might be consummated" 10000-MILE JOURNEY The 10000-mile journey with 40 public addresses and a kaleidoecopic succession of trying public functions was one of the most arduous ever undertaken by a President It began on September 3 1919 less than two months after Mr Wilson returned from Paris and the return to Washington was made on September 28 after his epecial train had skirted the Pacific coast and almost touched the Canadian and Mexican borders From the start Mr Wilson adopted a fighting attitude putting into his addresses an energy of expresMon and gesture Almost until the collapse came he presented an outward appearance of health and assurance facing the crowds always with a smile and jesting and laughing with those who gathered around his private car at the way station's For the last week and more of the trip however he suffered contantly from headache and sometimes from sleeplessness anti touches nf indigestion The break really began at San Francisco where four years inter another President Warren Harding gone to the country on a similar mission the world court broke under the strain of his trip and died suddenly after his physicians thought he was on the road to recovery VISIT TO SOUTHLAND Wilson like Harding insisted on going on after it was apparent to his PhyPlielan8 and others about him that the strain was beginning to tell It was at San Diego in the third week of his trip that Mr Wilson first permitted his indisposition to interfere with his prearranged schedule To have an unterrupted evening he canceled the plan to remain at a San Diego hotel had his train stopped for the night on a quiet siding near Del Mar and late the next tnerning tried to slip into Los Angeles quietly But he failed to elude the crowds Aside from his
