MR. A. H. EDWARDS, M.I.Struct.E., proposed a vote of thanks to Mr. Bylander for a most interesting paper. He desired to ask him a question about his proposal to put the conduit pipes for electric current in the solid concrete floor. Was there not some danger of the pipes perishing and also a difficulty in getting at them for the purposes of repair?
MY Presidential address to members of the Institution was to have been delivered at the opening General Meeting of the Session on October 26th. The outbreak of war made it
impossible to hold the meeting and deprived me of the privilege of carrying out this obligation. This does not mean, however, that the work of the Institution is to slow down. Although we cannot carry out a normal programme, meetings will be improvised from time to time, with due regard to the lighting and travelling problems which will affect attendances, and I very much hope that the splendid support which members have given to former Presidents and Councils will continue in spite of the irritations and
difficulties with which we are faced. I hope that all members-even those who have been
obliged to- change their habitat and remove to other parts of the Kingdom, or even overseas will do all they can to support their Institution during the War.
