FEELINGS AND EMOTIONS 139 as these irresistible forces of nature are moving in a favorable direction. b. Gene Tunney, after being knocked down by Demp- sey for fourteen seconds in the Chicago fight, boxes the round out with consummate defensive skill. Tunney “gets on his bicycle,” runs backward and away from Dempsey, sidestepping him cleverly and never allowing Dempsey to get within a knockout distance of his body and chin. This action on Tun- ney’s part is not to be interpreted as expressing fear or cowardice, but rather compliant skill in the prize- fighting game under conditions in which his oppo- nent is temporarily stronger than he. c. Stepping off a railroad track when a train approaches. d. Withdrawing the hand from a hot dish. e. A small boy crossing the street to avoid a crowd of bigger boys who are accustomed to tease him, and walking up the other side without appearing to hear their insults. /.
