The writer wishes to preface this paper by drawing attention to its title, which is slightly misleading, and might instead have been "The Well-Known Facts of Stone Decay
and a Suggested Remedy for the Present and Future."

<h4>Discussion</h4>

Discussion

-Mr. H. J. DEANE, B.Eng., M.Inst.C.E. (Past President), proposed a vote of thanks to Mr. Jackaman, and said that the information given concerning the driving and screwing of the piles would be valuable to members. Mr. Deane added that when he had first read the paper he had been disappointed because it had not contained so much data as he would have liked, but fortunately Mr. Jackaman had given some supplementary information at the meeting, and Mr. Deane suggested that that should be published in The Structural Engineer. For example, the diagram relating to the screwed piles and the strata penetrated, and the notes of the progress of the sinking of the piles, were valuable.

<h4>Correspondence Column Restraint</h4>

Correspondence Column Restraint

SIR,-I have to thank Mr. Gordon Welch for his kindly criticism of my article which appeared in the September issue. His remarks are in accordance with the mathematical implications of the slope deflection of isolated members, but it is interesting to note that in Clause No. 17 of the preliminary draft revision of the Institution report, resisting moment of connections is made the criterion of pillar restraint. My assessment is on more conservative lines, for I do not put it forward for buildings with wooden joist floors, unencasedsteel, corrugated steel or fully glazed sides. In some clauses of the Draft there seems to be an underlying assumption that steel will be encased and floors made fire-resisting ; but, in my opinion, Clause No. 17 needs strengthening in order to reward the design of rigid type buildings and penalise those with wooden floor joists, etc.

<h4>A River Wall in Reinforced Concrete</h4>

A River Wall in Reinforced Concrete

A VISIT to the town of Wisbech, "The Capital of the Fens," standing on the River Nene, almost half-way between Peterborough and Kings Lynn, will repay anyone interested in modern ferro-concrete construction. Here we have one of the most elegant bridges in this country spanning the river, unique in its design-the largest portal span in Britain-and close by the newly constructed Nene Quay River Wall which forms the subject of this paper.
