J. Bruce Ismay, the new president of the International Mercantile Marine
company, is averse to fishing, which he regards as a cruel sport.
Mr. Ismay was condemning fishing one day. "Suppose," he said quaintly, "that
some superior being---a Martian or a resident of the moon---should bait a
hook with pheasant and go Ismaying. I'm sure I'd bite, and what a sight I'd
make dangling in the air."
