There is in my library a report with a most engaging title—On the nature and conditioning of least work equations in structures. I must add that I am far from being sure what it is all about, but anything on the nature of least work is attractive, and particularly so in the documentation of reports. Aeronautical libraries are mostly small, with staffs varying possibly from one to three, and the handling of reports is only one of their functions. Moreover the number of requests for reports may be small when compared with other enquiries. On this basis there is no doubt whatever that the time and effort spent in organizing this material is quite out of proportion.
