Mr. C.J. JACKAMAN (Member of Council) said that the Institution was very greatly indebted to the author of this Paper. He had listened with great appreciation to what the author had said, and it had given rise to a number of questiom in his mind, which he would refrain from asking because there would not be time to answer them. But the author had covered many if not all the most salient features relating to aerodromes.
His paragraph headed "A Nationa1 Necessity" was most opportune, as were also his remarks on accessibility.
The PRESIDENT said that the applause which had followed the reading of the paper indicated that the meeting as a whole had enjoyed it as much as he had. It had been made quite clear in the paper that the subject was a very difficult one, and it was a very pleasant departure from the usual procedure-for the Institution dealt with rather different subjects as a rule-to have a paper from so great an expert as Mr. Bennett, indicating how little we knew on the subject of sound.
THIS paper gives a brief description of the methods adopted in the construction of
ten blocks of 320 industrial dwellings, known as Evelyn Court, Hackney, and one block of 21 dwellings at Berners Street, Stepney. These flats are constructed in reinforced concrete, by patented methods which had not been used previously in this country.
