Abstract

A meeting of the Royal Society of Tasmania
was held on August 14. Mr. Bernard
Shaw, I.S.O., presided. Attendance was low due to other functions scheduled at the same time.
Mr. W. F. Ward read a paper upon
"The effect of reversing the screw on
the steering qualities of a ship, with an
explanation of the Togo-Alice collision." The speaker illustrated his address
with diagrams. Further points of detail were discussed. The meeting then terminated.
