It amused me to read in the Star the statement of a responsible group, the Professional Engineers' Association. It borders on the line of personal jealousy of a highly qualified practical engineer, who is the assistant to the engineer-manager of the Auckland Transport Board, and the present secretary, who is a qualified accountant and highly skilled in financial matters. It appears that the association has been left out in the cold, and is now seeking aid of public support to bulldoze the board into employing an associate chartered engineer, at a high salary, to decide which one of the six firms engaged in the manufacture of trolley car motors is suitable for this system. Can the association recommend any two men, outside of the present board's staff, who are sufficiently versed in knowledge of plant and maintenance operation, peak loading, rostering, and financial control • qualifications such as are possessed by the present appointed members of the staff? A. E. GORDON.
