MR. EWART S. AKDREU’S, B.Sc., M.1nst.C.E.. (Vice-
President), proposing a very hearty vote of thanks to
Mr. Helsby for his interesting paper, said he had read a number of papers on the subject of welding, but in this paper Mr. Helsby struck entirely new ground, and had given much interesting and helpful information. Presumably he had not considered it within the scope of the paper to state the relative costs of a riveted and a welded structure, but no doubt many members of the Institution would be very interested to have some information on that matter.
