It has become a recognised practice nowadays for a newly elected President to commence his duties by composing an address to be read at the first meeting of the session over which he presides, and certainly I have found this to be one of the most difficult tasks I have ever undertaken. In searching for a subject I was at once brought face to face with the extraordinarily wide field of activities in which the Structural Engineer works. I am, however, helped to some degree by the fact that we are to discuss later on this evening the draft of it specification for one of the newer materials which have come to the aid of the engineer in recent years, so I shall make my remarks as short as possible.

A Comparison of English and Foreign Building Laws
