TO the Editor of "The Structural Engineer.” Sir,-I was unfortunately unable to be present at Mr. Bossom’s paper, and was somewhat surprised to note that neither in the paper nor in the discussion was any reference made to the sections which are now being rolled by the Carnegie Steel Co. and marketed by the United States Steel Products Co. These new sections include a 14 in. H section, maximum weight which is 305 Ibs. per foot, with sectional areas of 89.7 square inches. For column lengths not exceeding 20 ft. this is listed to carry 1,346,000 lbs.
