WE commend particularly to junior members of drawing office and design staffs the article in this issue on failures in service which have proved to be due to lack of foresight in the design of details. We had some doubts as to whether these notes would appear more appropriately in the general section of the paper or in the section devoted to the more practical affairs of the workshop and production bays. The article provides an instance where the distinction becomes a little fine but, while admittedly most of the examples given relate back to the drawing office, they do on the other hand in the result affect the production, and more especially the maintenance, sides which are in each case staffed by engineers of one type or another.
