PLAINFIELD, April 23---Miss Georgette Alexander Magill, aged sixteen years, who was among the first of those rescued from the Titanic to be put aboard the Carpathia, yesterday at Plainfield defended J. Bruce Ismay, chairman and managing director of the White Star Line. She asserted that she saw Ismay get in the last boat, which was then but half filled, and that he did so at the solicitation of Captain Smith. She praised Captain Smith for his coolness and courage.

Miss Magill traveled with her mother, Mrs. Robert Magill, and nurse, all of whom were saved. She was the guest over Sunday of a former schoolmate, Miss Margaret Miller, and attended the memorial service held for the Titanic victims at the Crescent Avenue Presbyterian Church.
