SIR PATRICK HANNON, M.P., who accepted with pleasure the President’s invitation to propose a vote of thanks to Mr. Hicks, said he felt that perhaps he ought to apologise to the President and members for speaking so frequently at meetings of the Institution at which he was honoured to be invited. But he was particularly proud and privileged to be present on that occasion and to be asked to propose a vote of thanks to his Honourable friend and colleague, Mr. George Hicks, the Parliamentary Secretary of the Ministry of Works.

Correspondence. 'A Simplified Approach to the Analysis of Piling Systems' by Professor F. Sawko, MSc

Mr. William G. Baird writes : ' Professor Sawko has presented a paper which will be of interest to all engineers who seek a quick and simple solution to the complex problem of analysing the loads and moments carried by a group of piles.
