From the desk of the Managing Director
Professor Stanwell P. Briar
     Unfortunately, as you can see from the picture, the Professor is not currently at his desk in the office or busily puttering about in the laboratories.  It is possible that he is either working in the field, or perhaps at the Linz Research Station.  A note has been sent by postal coach and it should reach Linz once the snow in the mountain passes has melted.  Usually that is sometime in June.  Until he returns or we hear from him by post, please take advantage of the information presented by the other researchers. 
     And Professor, if you are reading this, please come back.  All is forgiven.  The Dean has accepted that the loss of the two graduate student lab assistants was as unavoidable as the eighteen prior.  After all it’s all in the pursuit of science.  Oh, and on a side note, that Schwabian woman with the broken heart, STD and halbard has returned to her homeland.

The Durham UK research station has been responsible for many of the technical advances in the dirigibles of the Royal Dirigible Airship Service. 
The Linz, Austria research substation has been focused for several years now on materials science especially as related to crystalline structures, application of the Electrikus and ferrous metal casting.  Additional exciting work is under-way in glass and vacuum.
