THE fourth annual general meeting of the British Rheologists' Club was held at the University, Reading, on Saturday, October 21. The retiring president, Commander C. F. Goodeve, took the chair at the business meeting. The following were elected officers for the ensuing year: President, Prof. E. N. da C. Andrade; Hon. Secretary, Dr. G. W. Scott-Blair; Hon. Treasurer, Dr. V. G. W. Harrison. The following were also elected to the Committee: Mr. R. L. Brown, Dr. C. A. Maunder Foster; Dr. E. W. J. Mardles, Dr. L. R. G. Treloar. Dr. Scott-Blair reported an increase of more than ninety in the membership figures during the past year. There had been three general meetings, of which one had taken the form of a week-end conference. This had led to closer co-operation between rheologists working in numerous fields. The Committee especially welcomed the newly established contacts with metallurgists. Very cordial relations existed with the (American) Society of Rheology, and it was hoped in the near future to make contact with Soviet rheologists through the courtesy of the Embassy of the U.S.S.R. The business meeting was followed by a discussion on "Tack" introduced by Dr. N. A. de Bruyne and Mr. R. F. Bowles.
