The Uses of Metal: The Now almost Universal Material Brings many Improvements

IN a branch of engineering that has only been born just over twenty‐five years, nine years is a long time. The Seventh International Aero Exhibition held in London this year was separated by that interval from its predecessor, and it is therefore small matter for surprise that it proved even more interesting than was expected. In comparison with the show at Berlin last year, and similar experiences in Paris, it was on the whole poorly attended by the general public, but since the time has not yet come when casual visitors can be expected to purchase aeroplanes, this did not perhaps matter very much. The important point was that it was extraordinarily well attended by those technically interested from all parts of the world, and it was impossible to walk round without meeting familiar faces from one's own as well as other countries. This led to valuable interchange of views and ideas in a way that has not hitherto been possible to the same extent in England, and hardly perhaps elsewhere.
