Mr. H. A. WHITAKER, before presenting his paper, said that the subject was not new to the Institution, since Mr. H. W. Coultas had read a paper on it to the Midland Counties Branch in 1930. In the present paper, however, he had treated the subject in a somewhat different way, and had brought out more recent developments.

ALTHOUGH there have been a number of papers read within the past few years before Professional Societies on the artistic treatment of concrete, I make no apology for contributing yet another, since it is a subject regarding which we are daily gaining more and more knowledge through practical experience.

The Structural Engineer

A very interesting paper on Troubles Bridge Foundations, by Mr. H. E. Brooke - Bradley, appeared in The Structural Engineer, December, 1933. It quite rightly stressed the importance of scientific soil investigations prior to the study and choice of a design for a bridge. The same paper also mentioned cases of serious trouble having arisen through unforeseen settlements of a bridge abutment. DIPLOM-INGENIEUR G. TSCHEBOTAREFF.
