In Part 1, the author discusses the background to the design of the integrated viaduct system in relation to the road network in Birkenhead and its relieving effect on local traffic. The choice of spans and structural material is considered and the basis of the structural design of the composite construction column/superstructure junction discussed. Gencral comment is made on the fabrication and erection of the structural steelwork.

Presidential Address. Science and the Art of Construction

' It is well known that the President of an efficiently run Institution does not take office unprepared. I cannot therefore claim that the great honour that you have done me is unexpected, but I can quite truthfully say that my appreciation is accompanied and enhanced by some feeling of surprise. This is not because it is unusual for one who is not a practising structural engineer to become President, for the Institution has liberal and catholic traditions in this respect. It comes from personal reasons that I find it difficult to define, but which I think former Presidents will appreciate. ' A.R. Collins

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. However, some doubt exists as to the reliability of the method when it is applied to physical problems. '
