A Welcome from the President 
I bid you a friendly welcome to London. Welcome on behalf of the Congress Board who 
have undertaken the task of organizing your congress. 
I know that however much thought and work we may have put into making the arrangements 
for your reception and for your activities, those arrangements can never quite reach the 
ideal of being at all times in all ways what all of you might desire. Nevertheless, we hope 
you will find them adequate and will make full and profitable use of them. 
A congress affords certain opportunities that are exceptional, perhaps unique, amongst 
those afforded by other available means of exchanging thoughts and experiences. The 
fact of actually meeting men of like profession from distant lands, working with them, 
discussing with them, and relaxing with them, even for so short a period as a fortnight, 
can strike the spark which sets off new exchanges or stimulates current ones. It has been 
amongst our aims to provide conditions favourable for such personal contacts and the 
meeting of minds across thefrontiers of language and of outlook which too often keep us apart. 
I thank you for supporting the Congress with your presence. I thank also the presidents and 
boards of the commissions for preparing the technical programme. And I thank the 
exhibitors for their valuable support. 
You are welcome to London, and may you leave it well satisfied.
