Re: Countdown


Monday April 22, 1912

The subcommittee came into the brand new caucus room of the Senate Office Building at 10:30 in the morning, only to discover there was no room for them - apparently every fashionable woman in the Capitol, dressed to the nines and carrying a sack lunch, had descended en masse into the chamber, leaving no room for anyone else with the exceptions of a number of news reporters. He attempts to make an announcement, but can't hear himself, due to the fact that the chamber acoustics are so terrible, the reporter's writing sounds like a hoard of locusts (the room, done in full lavish Victorian splendor, still has the reputation of the worst acoustics in the building). Light explosions from the photographer's cameras and hand-cranks from a cinematic camera add to the din.

Senator Smith immediately goes to get the sergeant-at-arms and some assistants, who eject all the photgraphers (and the cinematographer), a good many protesting ladies (some of who used "extremely inappropriate language, given thier age and apparent station" ), and move the newsmen back so that the official visitors, including many ambassadors, British Naval Attache C.F.G. Sowerby, Rep. Nicholas Longworth (Alice Roosevelt's husband), and Captain John Knapp of the U.S. hydrographic Office, among others.

Fourth Officer Joseph Boxhall was the big witness of the day, and he described how , in Southampton, only two lifeboats had been tested, and also how he was responsible for noting on the chart all iceberg warnings, yet was completely ignorant of most of the ones heretofore mentioned - and that of the ones he did remember, none were near the ship's track, or he would have made a special note to tell the captain. He also mentions the 'mystery ship" about five miles away. At the conclusion of testimony, it is this last which creates the most discusion among the committee members.
