Professor A. W. Hendry (F): In my department in the University of Edinburgh we have for many years been engaged on research work on unreinforced masonry. For the most part
this has been concerned with clay brickwork sponsored by the British Ceramic Research Association and BDA but a limited amount of work has been carried out on concrete blockwork, particularly using lightweight aggregate blocks. Some of the results may be of interest in supplementing the work reported in the present paper.
The paper concerns the use of masonry infills for bracing steel or reinforced concrete frames against horizontal forces.

Mr. Gavin Orr's letter (March 77) has brought an approving response from several readers but a general suggestion that times change and that however good the old methods of training were, we cannot put the clock back. Mr. F. G. Alchin, for instance, says : Mr. Gavin Orr's recently published account of pre-war structural steelwork training I found very nostalgic as it coincides with my having enjoyed a similar experience. As this commenced some 50 years ago there cannot be many of us left, at least actively employed, but one can only concur with every comment he makes.
