An analysis of the Carnegie hero fun3 commission's report
dated Jan. 31, 1912, shows these figures onthe total number of
awards made, since the fund became' operative April 15, 1905:
Total-number of awards . . . . .583
Awarded to wage workers ..'... .- . .-406
Awarded tq students and schoolboys. ..,...., 92
Awarded .to business men. . . , ". ........, 33
Awarded to professional men, ..,... X. . , I , . 21
, Awarded towottien and. girls . ... v., .., v ...,. . . ,"31
