The report of column tests by the Committee of the American Concrete Institute (see Journal, American Concrete Institute, Februray, 1915, p. 47) is instructive, as it enbables one to show by comparision that most of the building ordinances now in effect are far from correct in their specifications for unit stresses on hooped columns. Being published nearly simultaneous with accounts of the Edison fire, this report brought the subject of concrete columns vividly to the attention of those in the buidling business, regarding questions of both safde loads and fire resistance.
