Instead of the Annual Dinner, the Institution of Structural Engineers held this year a Luncheon at the Dorchester Hotel, London, W., on Friday, 25th April, when 300 members and guests were present. The Principal Guest was the Rt. Hon. Arthur Greenwood, P.C., M.P., Minister withtout Portfolio, who proposed the toast of "The Institution of Structural Engineers,” coupled with the name of the President, Mr. J. F. Butler, A.M.Inst.C.E., whose speech in response is given below. The President-elect, Mr. W. K. Wallace, M.Inst.C.E., proposed the toast of "The Guests," and the response was mode by Mr. George Hicks, M.P., Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works and Buildings.
THE election of Mr. William Wallace as President of the Institution of Structural Engineers for the Session 1941-42 will give pleasure to the many members of the Institution all over the world of Scottish birth or ancestry, for they will claim Mr. Wallace as their own. Those who meet him for the first time, however, will find that in appearance, though typically Celtic, he is not a Scot, and having once heard him speak, that rich brogue will leave them in no further doubt as to which side of the North Channel is the land of his origin.
