Mr. W. T. HALCROW, President, British Section, Societe des Ingbnieurs Civils de France,
handed to Monsieur L. P. Brice the Du-Plat-Taylor medal, which had been awarded to him
for his paper entitled “Dunkirk Harbour Extension Works,” considered to be the best paper read before the British Section of the Societe des Ingenieurs Civils de France,
during the session 1937-38.
Lieut.-Col. H. S. ROGERS, C.M.G., D.S.O. (President of the Institution of Structural
Engineers), extended a very cordial welcome to Dr. Cullen and his fellow members of the

THE basins of swimming baths should always be constructed in such a way that loss of water will be avoided as much as possible. Evaporation evidently cannot be avoided; it is still essential to ensure complete and permanent impermeability to water in the construction of the bottom and side walls of the basin. These parts must also be able to resist the eventual chemical action of water; moreover, they must have a certain resistance to eventual subsidence of the soil.
