A GREAT WAR PRESIDENT RETIRES
TOMORROW a new man enters the White House. He will
be greeted with acclaim and justly' so. He was elected
president of the United States and he will have the good
will of all as he starts upon his difficult duties.
S But today the thoughts of millions of people in this nation
and elsewhere throughout the world are with the retiring rather
than the incoming president. 1 This is Woodrow Wilson's final
iour in authority and it marks the close of a period during
which he wrote his name indelibly upon the pages of history.
This is not the time to do full justice to the record of President
Wilson. xWe are still too near the scene to view his work in its
true perspective. To a great many people the events with
which he dealt are beclouded and he is misunderstood but the
dav will come when the light will break forth and the Wilson
record as president and as a champion of the League of Nations
at the peace conference will shine like a star and always endure.
In the words of a great world-leader General Smuts:
"At a time of the deepest darkness and despair, he had rais
ed aloft a light to which all eyes had turned. He had spoken
divine words of healing and consolation to a broken humanity.
His lofty moral idealism seemed for a moment to dominate the
hrutal passions which had torn the old world asunder."
; In his estimate of President Wilson's place in history, given
Elsewhere in this paper, General Smuts shows how Wilson failed
at the peace conference and how he triumphed. He did not
rescue Alcestis but he saved the child the league covenant.
General Smuts is in position to say that. He was oneof the
"inside men" at the peace conference and he knows what was
done and who did it. The Smuts view is that the League of
iauons will live and that all civilized countries will unite in this
great move for insuring peace. There are good reasons for be
lieving this prediction will come true and in this connection
there is significance in the. fact that the president-elect, chosen
as nn opponent of the league, has already named for secretary
01 state a man who was noted as a champion of the covenant.
If the league does live the chief honor will belong to Woodrow
Wilson because it was thr6ugh his inflrrence that the covenant
was adopted at Versailles. .
But the fame of President Wilson does not rest alone upon
his championship of the" peace covenant. On strictly American
bubjeets he has a record of accomplishment that can be claimed
by no other president. It was under his leadership that the re
serve act was passed. Likewise the farm loan act. the water
ppwer law ana otner measures too numerous to mention here.
But the real executive greatness of the president was tested
when this nation went to war. The most peaceful country dn
earth became the most warlike and the most invincible in an in
credibly short space of time. The story of our war preparations
and of the A. E. F. may properly be classed as one of the wond
ers of history Never before did a country rush to the front an
vigorously, and so thoroughly. Mistakes were made of course,
as was inevitable, but taken as a whole America's part in the
war was a gigantic success The kaiser has admitted it.
In earn ing on the war almost supreme Dower was nlnrprl In
the hands of the president. He named the men who handled
ill the big affairs at home and in the field. He was commander
in cniet and ne centered all his matchless ability tn the single
purpose of victory. Men who saw affairs at close range say the
president drove all departments with . a fierce relentlessness
never before duplicated. It must have been so because it is an
accepted principle that no organization can function any better
than its executive head and the American army functioned with
a vengeance. Who can deny the fact?
There are those who have sought to place upon the presi
dent full responsibility for all mistakes made but who would
begrudge him credit for the successful work that was done.
That is obviously unfair. If he is entitled to blame for failures,
as he is, he is entitled also to the glory of victory. President
Wilson was the real unknown hero of the war.s As a politician
he may be a bungler; as an executive he is not. He used his
head and had he not done so the war might still be underway.
Few dreamed that the struggle could be ended so quickly and
if we had had an incompetent in the white house the dream of
a long war could easily have been realized almost without any
one knowing why. , i ..
On his withdrawal from the presidency Woodrow Wilson
needs no words from anyone to make his fame secure. His
name is irretrievably linked with America's part in the greatest
struggle men ever fought, and is stamped as nj name was ever
stamped before upon the heart of the world.
