T IS small wonder that President Wilson has broken
down. He has for years been under a terrific strain.
No man ever struggled under a heavier load or shoulder
ed a greater weight -of responsibilityand none ever ac
quitted himself more creditably.
The presidency entails heavy burdens in times of peace
more than ever in latter years, since the executive has
become the. real leader of the nation with powers greater
than those of a monarch. During the war all power was
concentrated in his hands and since;the armistice he has
been the spokesman of democracy in the congress of. the
world.. .. . ': ' '.--. ' ;
The total lack of leadership in congress forced upon
the president the origination and creation of all the meas
ures necessary to win the "war.. Not a one of these essen
tial' programs originated in congress. Unsparing and
merciless criticism was showered upon him from the be
ginning but public opinion forced the passage of neces
sary measures by reluctant legislators.
It was President Wilson who enunciated the 14 prin
ciples of democracy which the belligerents accepted as
the basis of peace. It was President Wilson who cham-Vf-d
democracy at Versailles and routed the reactionar
ies i Europe, making possible the dream of oppressed na
tions for independence. It was President Wilson - who,
voicing the aspirations of war-weary peoples, insisted up
on a league of nations as a means of ending war.
It was the statesmanship of President Wilson which
kept the United States out of the war until the: American
people were united for the war, and it was his persuas
ion that aided materially in uniting the nation to win the
wan io American ever enjoyed greater power and pres
tige abroad, and none could have represented more truly
the national ideals in extending the declaration of inde
pendence to the world.
Intellectually the superior of most of mankind, the
President has few advisors and no intimates. He takes
counsel only .of: himself ---thereby offending many. But
it is his nature and like most great men, he cannot be
measured by the inch rule of mediocrity.
The Presidents collapse. is probably largely due to
the persistent campaign ,of villification and misrepresen
tation unsparingly wage'd by narrow-visioned politicians
to defeat the league of. nations which the President
rightly regards as his greatest accomplishment. In a
final effort to explain the peace treaty to the people, he
has-exhausted ' a vitality never robust, and already im
paired by his unending labors for the nation. Almost
single-handed, he has fought the good fight-- and not "as
one that beateth the air'" and an appreciative people
hope for his speedy recovery and continued efforts in hu

By Walt Mason;
An initial scrimmage of 30 niinufea
was held Wednesday afternoon with the
result that some blood was spilled and
u number of bruises sustained. Busier,
who is out for center, and Sherwood,
who is crowding h;s opponent for full
buck, were among thoso banged up.
Throughout the period every mailt on
the squad fought with "blood in- his
eye," as if he were driving through to
Berlin. When the period ended, there
were two real football machines in ac- I
tion and thoy were carrying tho pig
skin in a bloody good way.
Coach Mathews wua well-pleased with
the scrimmage from tho standpoint of
tho work done, also from tho standpoint
of new material which came to the sur
face during the tusBle, -and which had
not become conspicuous during the con
ditioning grind. , Captain Dimick is
starting the season in accordance with
his previous whirlwind record., Dimick
has played on the varsity team since
1916 vith the exception of last season
when he was in the sorvice. '
Wnpnto, of Wcnutchee, Wash., is an
other man of the big league type who
will place on the team this season. He
will be a big factor in tho plunging
back field. Wapato has been on tho var
sity eleven since his registration as a
freshman in 1917. " Wap" i enlisting
