Your committee has invited comment and constructive criticism relating o the specifications and forms on which the committee bas been working. Careful consideration has been given to all communications addressed to the chairman or secretary of the committee and a careful study has been made of the specifications submitted to the Institute at the convention in 1921. It was the intent of the committee to have concrete building block, concrete building tile and concrete brick tested for compressive strength in a dry state. While we believe that this intent will be apparent to any one who carefully studies the specifications, yet we feel that it will be wise to change the wording so as to clarify this thought and also simplify the wording of the specifications.
