I reviewed the testimony of Mrs. J. Stuart White, which she gave during the Senate inquiry, on May 2, 1912. Mrs. White seemed to have a level head, and a good grasp of the facts. She was appalled at what had happened (i.e., the ship running in to the icefield, "sailors" in the boat who didn't know what an oar was, no open decks except the boat deck, etc.). She was in Boat no. 8, with the Countess of Roth. Further, she describes the statement made by a crewman: "If you don't stop talking through that hole in you face there will be one less in the boat." The "Titanic" movie attributed this statement to Quartermaster Hichens, which is obviously wrong because he in was in a different boat (no. 6). She even told the senator that there wasn't any "bravery" among the men: "They speak of the bravery of the men. I do not think there was any particular bravery, because none of the men thought (the Titanic) was going down. If they had thought the ship was going down, they would not have frivoled as they did about it." Mrs. White also correctly noted that the ship broke in two. In sum, Mrs. White's testimony reflects a level of common sense, and sets the record straight on a lot of the assumptions people have about the Titanic disaster. It's worth reading.
