Report on Structural Engineering in Germany. Discussion on Mr. John Mason's Paper

The Chairman (Professor H.J. COLLINS, M.Sc., M.I.C.E., M.I.Struct.E., M.I.Mech.E., President of the Institution of Structural Engineers), welcoming the members of the Royal Institute of British Architects, said there were too few occasions on which architects and engineers got together to discuss problems of mutual interest. Defining “discussion” as “a means of arriving at conclusions which will be beneficial to the individual who doesn’t know,” he said that collaboration between the two professions was of inestimable benefit to the nation as a whole and that if the people on whom the future of this country depended decided to differ, it would be disastrous to those people who were unable to help themselves and were dependent on them.
