HEROISM IN EARTHQUAKE

RECOGNITION DESIRED.

COMPILATION OF RECORDS

(By Telegraph.—Press Association.)

HASTINGS, this day.

Hastings and Napier men and women performed deeds which, had they occurred in the army at the war, would have been cons! deed worthy of the highest decorations, and a place among the treasured traditions, says Mr. W. A. G. Penlington, principal of the Hastings High School and a former major in the Rifle Brigade in the Great War, who, in a letter to the Press, makes a plea for the recognition of deeds of valour during the earthquake.

"There were many instances of people risking their lives for the sake of others," says Mr. Penlington. "In some cases they sustained serious injuries in doing so, and in several instances they met death. No doubt the caseß should be brought f o the notice of the Royal Humane Society."

The Mayor of Hastings has asked Mr. Penlington to supervise the compilation of records of acts of heroism such as he had referred to.
