Sir,-The communication in your issue of December, 1926, from J. S. McAven, of Auckland, N.Z., on the snapping of a concrete reinforcing rod 20 feet away from the point where the rod was struck with a maul, illustrates a well-known property of steel.

It is usual, I believe, for the Presidential Address to be delivered at the opening meek ing of the Session, but the lamented death of our late President, Sir Charles Ruthen, coming as it did so near to the end of last session, unfortunately made it necessary to defer the occasion until this evening.
