Waters, A H S
ALTHOUGH the asthetic effect of a building is largely determined by the nature of its surfaces-that is, by the texture and colour of its external walls, the subject of surface treatment does not generally receive in everyday practice the attention which its importance deserves, and in the literature of architecture and building there are only scant references to recent developments in the technique of surface finishes to walls, roofs, and internal divisions of modern buildings.

see on what basis Mr. Drury assumes 7 1/2 tons per sq. in. as total available stresses in a pillar which has a direct stress and bending stresses.
The PRESIDENT proposed a hearty vote of thanks to Mr. Drury for his paper and for the very great care with which he had prepared it.
