Mr. A. C. R. ALBERY (Associate-Member) writes: Any engineer connected with the design or construction of hydroelectric works will be very grateful to M. Koechlin for his very detailed and magnificently illustrated paper on the Rossens Dam. The construction of the dam, for which the Author was responsible, appeared to be a perfect example of careful planning and efficient organisation. Method and orderliness were apparent in every photograph. However, it is mainly in connection with the design of the dam that I would like to raise a few points, in the hope that M. Koechlin may be prepared to express some opinions.

The Design, Fabrication and Erection af a Small, All-Welded Machine Shop. Discussion on Mr. C. Helsb

MR. EWART S. AKDREU’S, B.Sc., M.1nst.C.E.. (Vice- President), proposing a very hearty vote of thanks to Mr. Helsby for his interesting paper, said he had read a number of papers on the subject of welding, but in this paper Mr. Helsby struck entirely new ground, and had given much interesting and helpful information. Presumably he had not considered it within the scope of the paper to state the relative costs of a riveted and a welded structure, but no doubt many members of the Institution would be very interested to have some information on that matter.
