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.
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.
Alfred C. Bossom
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.
