ENGINEERING is essentially a practical subject and attention to detail generally makes the difference between success and failure, yet, since I believe that it is the custom for these annual lectures to be of a general character, I propose to discuss the future of plastics in engineering in fairly broad and philosophical terms. I confess that when I read the printed prospectus of this lecture I became somewhat alarmed lest your expectations might perhaps be altogether too high. I cannot put forward any very formal system of ideas and I propose, as it were, merely to speculate aloud. Since these can only be one man's ideas they may very well be wrong and are certainly incomplete.
