I assume you mean President Woodrow Wilson. The top of the tomb is decorated by a  large cross done in relief (see first link for a good picture). And Wilson's name and the years he lived are carved into the top as well. The sides of the tomb are decorated with columns carved in low relief, which echo the huge columns that form the room itself.

The floor of the room the tomb is in is carved with the seal of the president of the United States.
