Dr. OSCAR FABER, commenting on his criticisms in the paper of concrete floors, said that they were by no means intended to be a general condemnation of concrete floors; they had reference only to the use of reinforced concrete for certain specific purposes. He disclaimed any intention to condemn concrete floors generally.
THE Cement Gun Apparatus had a rather curious origin. It was invented in America between 25 and 30 years ago, as the result of some experiments made by Mr. Carl Akeley, a big-game hunter, in forming the mounts for his trophies. The carcases were
formed by spraying plaster of paris on to an expanded metal frame of the required shape.

Mr. Dorman: ‘Judging by the number of enquiries relating to the merits of various roofing systems received by the BCSA central office, Dr. Buchholdt is to be congratulated on producing a timely paper. It will be of considerable value to have this present study, with its summary of the state of the art in the design of tension
structures, and one would certainly hope that this paper will go some way towards bridging the “credibility gap” between research and development activity on the one
hand, and design practice on the other.'
