In his paper " The Design of Jetties," Mr. Minikin has given us yet another piling formula. He does so because he is of the opinion (and rightly so) that a piling formula should contain a factor which makes allowance for the embedded length of the pile. This, it is stated in the paper, the Hiley formula does not do. That statement is clearly based on the assumption that the "c" in the Hiley formula is the temporary compression from tables.

SIR PATRICK HANNON, M.P., proposing a vote of thanks to the author for his provokingly stimulating paper, said Mr. Bossom had carved out a place peculiarly hls own in the House of Commons: If any question arose as regards planning or anything that affected the amenities of the country, Mr. Bossom was always to be found either at question time or in debate facing the Ministers and putting the question at issue in its correct perspective. From the point of view of national development and particularly in regard to the position of the structural engineer or builder, there was no more genial and kindly, but at the same time from the point of view of Ministers more constructive critic, than Mr. Bossom.
It is with deep regret that we record the death on the 9th October of Mr. Sven Bylander, a Founder Member of the Concrete Institute. Mr. Bylander was 66 years of age. He was born in Sweden and was educated at Ara and at Boras Technical College. He spent two years as a draughtsman in the Lindholmens shipyard at Gothenburg and gained further experience in Germany and the United States. He specialised in structural steelwork and during his career was responsible for the steelwork of many notable buildings.

THE time has arrived when, in spite of the unquestionable importance of pursuing our war activities to the utmost, we must peer a little into the mists of the future to see whether we cannot garner from the welter of vileness perpetrated during the war a few major benefits for mankind.
