Abstract

THE Institution of Gas Engineers held its seventy-ninth annual meeting in London on June 10, under the presidency of Sir Frederick J. West, of Manchester. The main business was the discussion of six short papers dealing with the place of the gas industry in meeting the post-war needs of Great Britain. Throughout the papers ran an emphasis on the need for greater and more thorough education of the personnel of the industry under the conditions of the future. Prof. D. T. A. Townend reviewed the development of university education since the industry applied the Livesey Fund in 1910 to endow a chair in coal gas and fuel industries in the University of Leeds. Recently the University has extended and widened the curriculum by incorporating courses in chemical engineering.
