Sir,-The difficulties which certain engineers seem to be encountering in the proper interpretation of clauses mentioned by Mr. Cocking in his letter published in the November issue do not seem to be insuperable, if, indeed, they do exist.
AS I have the honour to be the British Vice- President of the International Association
for Bridge and Structural Engineering, and as I attended the first Congress of the Association, held in Paris from 19th May to 25th May, as leader of the Official Delegates appointed by His Majesty’s Government, I thought it might be of some interest to the members of the Scottish Branch of the Institution if I gave a brief account of the work of the Congress and of my impressions of how far the Association
is carrying out the work for which it was instituted.
Professor Sir Thomas Hudson Beare
MEMBERS of the Institution are undoubtedly keenly interested in the development of concrete construction. More general acceptance of concrete as a building material and a wider application of its use would be viewed by many as a desirable event. Some there may be who believe that world changes have already brought about conditions favourable to its early acceptance, not merely as a valuable contribution to all manner of construction, but as the chief medium of building.
D.T. Lloyd Jones
