The CHAIRMAN, whose pleasurable duty it was to propose formally a vote of thanks to Dr. Meyerhof for his paper, said there was no need to emphasise the importance of the subject discussed therein; its importance was indicated by the large number present
at the meeting. In the paper Dr. Meyerhof had given a very nice blend of the theoretical and the practical; in other words, he had given the results of research work and had analysed them, and an indication of their practical application. The meeting wished to thank him heartily for his paper and for his excellent presentation
The authors, introducing their paper, amplified the methods of construction and showed. a number of slides. (Figs. 1 and 2 below illustrate the state of the building
at the time of presentation of the paper when nearing completion, and were among the slides shown.)
Arbitration is a method of settling disputes by referring them to one or more specially appointed persons, instead of in the Courts. A great variety of matters can be referred to arbitration, but its advantages are greatest when the issues are of a technical nature. It has the more general advantage that the time and place of the hearing can be fixed to suit the convenience of the parties and others engaged in the proceedings. The text-books on the subject do not stress this point.
