Women and Children First /4 TRADITION as old as civilization, this defer ence of man to the weaker and . more helpless of the race. That, is as it should be. Unsung heroes, transformed in the twinkling of an eye through some tragedy into magnificent stalwarts, have died smiling, satisfied that by such sacrifice they have saved the life of a woman or a child. That is the stamp of the thoroughbred. It is an amazing commentary on human inconsistency, how ever, that the same man who unhesitatingly would go to his death for such a cause in a great emergency will gamble with fate at the risk of perma nent injury to those for whom he has the profoundest affec tion: his wife and children.
