When I was installed as President last June by my predecessor, Professor Husband, I expressed my gratification at the honour the Institution had conferred on me, and I take this opportunity of again stating fhat I do feel highly honoured at being elected to the highest appointment the Institution can confer. Lt.-Colonel H.S. Rogers
SIR,-In Volume 16 in the discussion on the paper. “Moments in Flat Slabs,” a written contribution from Mr. Montgomery Smith is quoted the points of which I should like to deal with in order:
THE average man would probably say tha ta road is not a structure, but indeed it is a very complex one. In all forms of structural engineering where the engineer is concerned to overcome the forces of nature, his problem commences at the bottom, whether the structure is a bridge, a road, or a skyscraper. The security and permanence of his foundations control the life of the structure, and in no form of engineering is this truer than in the building of a highway. H.E. Brooke-Bradley
