Administration and maintenance of ordinary highways has been in the hands of the different States (Bavaria, Saxony, Wurtemburg, Baden, etc.) or in Prussia, of the administrative subdivisions (provinces and counties).

THE International Commission on Large Dams of the World Power Conference recently formed an International Committee to consider the problem of cements for large clams. A British Sub-Committee on special cements for use in such structures was appointed.
