Author finds ordinary concrete, most of it made by common laborers, a remarkable material in performing with reasonable satisfaction the functions intended. But he finds it costly, wasteful, cracked, spalled, honeycombed., leaky, nonuniform and unsightly. He tells how, by simple means, which he describes, (with modern knowledge, better specifications, and insistence that they be followed) good concrete can be had to justify, on a dollars and cents basis, the necessary additional supervision.
