Presents excerpts related to the welding industry. Fred L. Plummer of the Case School of Applied Science wrote about the increased use of welding in construction. During the past fifteen years, the use of welding in the structural field has gradually increased until now welding should be considered as a possible means of fabrication on all structural jobs. It will not be necessary for production engineers to fit their design and processes to standard welding units. The use of welding, even for alloys and non-ferrous metals not presently utilized, or even known--will expand during the next 10 years.
