Correspondence Strength of Compression Members

SIR,-Mr. C. H. Wollaston, in your October issue, takes exception to my statements in discussing the Strength of Compression Members. His position is the standard position as regards the Euler formula and the Euler load. It is commonly stated that a column can sustain in equilibrium the Euler load, and it is this erroneous idea that, I believe, should be combatted.
