Thanking the lecturer and opening the meeting for discussion the Chairman said they had had a most interesting lecture. Mr. a’Court had thrown out a wealth of ideas and the most intriguing one was that as concrete was such a readily used material we were
stretching it to the limit to which it could be used. He wondered if that was so, for when they could produce a light weight concrete which was strong there was a whole range of other uses which had not yet come into being.
The CHAIRMAN, proposing a vote of thanks to the Authors, said all were grateful to Mr. Hole and Mr. Eales for having put on to paper an almost epic story of achievement, an achievement against odds of weather, shortages of materials, shortages of labour and the thousand and one other factors which could so easily have set back their schedule and prevented the completion of the work on time. All would wish to join in congratulating them heartily on a magnificent job well done.
TO ALL MEMBERS OF THE INSTITUTION
The Council has been kind enough to permit me to use the columns of the Journal to communicate with you regarding the Institution’s Benevolent Fund, and in this connection I approach you as Honorary Secretary of the Fund and not in my official capacity as Secretary of the Institution, for on the subject of the Fund I feel there can only be a personal approach.
