"We may hear, if they are Mirtidenily c ompoied to tell It, the thrill ing and gratifying ! iry of two w men passengers on the Titanic with tthorn I have haJ private converfa ion. One of them said to me: IN ALL THAT TOHROR AND CONFUSION, MOST OF WHICH I SAW, TH1RF WAS NOT AN AMERICAN MAN WHO JOSTLED A I WOMAN.' Such words as these sink home. It is the one light we see in , the horror anJ li.lr'kllc ot the tragedy. "One of these women also has told me of the last they saw of Major Archibald Rut! and Clarence Moore. " l was in one of the last boats to leave,' she said. 'Major Butt and Mi. Moore assisted the women into the hosts as though they were iithering them into a reception.

Itostrom then aald again that he took the risk of going at full epecd through the bergs beoaiuie at his desire to eave life. "I put on an extra watch," Tie eald.
