In recent months Sir Kirby Laing, Sir St. John Elstub and Mr. A. G. Milne, as Presidents respectively of the Institutions of Civil, Mechanical and Electrical Engineers have been considering the future organization of the profession. At the beginning of July Sir Leonard Atkinson, as Chairman of the CEI, invited the presidents of all 15 CEI constituent institutions to consider an analysis of what was seen by the three Presidents as being the current problem. At that meeting it was arranged that the respective Presidents would consult informally with their Council colleagues and return to the matter at the end of September.

The shape of the load/extension curve 2. Relaxation losses at 6 per cent 3. Lower grip efficiencies 4. The tendency to fly open when cut 5. The 'banana' effect at the ends
