Abstract

To some readers of this brief article it may appear that unnecessary stress is laid upon considerations that are obvious. The failure of the St. Francis dam, however, is simply the latest of many disasters that have occurred because attention was not given to conditions that should have been clearly perceptible to those responsible for the project.
