NUMBER 5


After reading the following letter by Franklin O.
Adams of Tampa it was not a difficult task to give it
the title

COOPERATION-CONFIDENCE-ASSURANCE

When cooperation is established we will have
CONFIDE NCE-COOPE RATION-ASSURANCE

When confidence is restored we will have
ASSURANCE-CONFIDENCE-COOPERATION

ASSURANCE of safety in investment.

CONFIDENCE in mankind and government.

COOPERATION by all to maintain the above.


It can be done.






COOPERATION--CONFIDENCE--ASSURANCE

By FRANKLIN O. ADAMS

I have been accused of being abstruse, didactic and
even obscure in my efforts to present professional gripes
to fellow architects. These defamers may be correct,
there being certain evidences in their favor. At any
rate, I am going to try my hand at making a few simple
direct statements and see what will happen.

Building did not take its place in the march toward
better times that began back in 1933. The reason was
that people and institutions who had any money or
credit left were afraid to put it into building because
building cost too much and because building investment
has always been too much of a gamble. Many of these
potential investors had lost huge sums as a result of
previous boom time speculation in building. It was
simply the case of the burnt child avoiding the fire.
Of course, feverish efforts have been made by indi-
viduals and groups to find a solution that would restore
confidence in building as an investment, efforts in which
the government has taken a notable part. New ma-
terials, new methods of construction and even complete
factory built houses have been offered. The govern-
ment has put up money and credit galore. But, the
private investor has not yet been reassured and still
holds aloof. The old methods of building procedure
which made investment hazardous then are still in use
and he knows it. Further, we are not going to have
permanent general recovery until building money be-
gins to show self reliance.
It looks as if- it were up to .the building industry
to do something about changing the conditions which
are intimidating investment. This, obviously, cannot
be done by one group or a few of the groups in the
industry because the objectional practices referred to
are inherent in nearly all of the groups. It can only
be done by all the groups acting in concert. Even then
it will be necessary to invite the investor group, the
vending group (Realtors) and the insuring group to
sit in with us in order that these groups may be con-
vinced that the objectional practices have been eliminated
and that safety in investment has been achieved.

To accomplish this end, someone has to make the
first move. There is one group toward which all the
others will naturally look to initiate such a move, the







architects. What are we going to do about it? The
first thing to do is to gain the full unity and strength
of our own group by securing the aggressive support of
all registered architects as working and paying mem-
bers of the Association. This is necessary in order
that every comniun'ty in the state may be made to par-
ticipate in whatever joint action may be taken by all
the groups. Every registered architect, therefore, if le
is at all interested in the future of his own practice,
should pledge his written support to President Pan-
coast and send his dues in the Association to Treasurer
De La Haye. He should, furthermore, and without fail,
attend the December convention in Jacksonville at which
time a definite plan for joint action on the part of all
the groups interested in building will be presented for
consideration and final action; a plan, by the way, that
received the unanimous approval of a former convention
and of several other state-wide groups, but which was
finally abandoned because the architects failed to push
it in their communities. Shall we do this job? It is
up to the registered architects individually as well as
collectively.

SEMI-ANNUAL MEETING

With 48 members, 8 students, and 2 visitors present
the semi-annual meeting in Gainesville kept pace with
the increasing interest being manifested in Association
activities.
The following cities were represented: Jacksonville,
Gainesville, Miami, Miami Beach, Palm Beach, Day-
tona Beach, Orlando, Tallahassee, St. Petersburg, Ft.
Lcuderdale, Pensacola, Tampa, Ocala, Lakeland,
Tavares, Winter Park.







Eleven out of fifteen District Directors were present
with reports and the other four Districts had fine writ-
ten reports for the meeting . That is a record for a
semi-annual gathering.
All Districts were represented by one or more archi-
tects, except our Key West section-512 miles away.
Dan Hart, Pensacola, traveled 365 miles in an easterly
direction and the Miami and Miami Beach members
registered 372 miles in a northerly direction.
Morning Session taken up by, Minutes of Annual
Meeting; Treasurer's Report; Secretary's Report; Re-
ports from 15 Districts; Reports from Committees; A.
I. A. and State Association Unification; The Architect
and the Small House Problem; Membership in The
Florida Association.
Afternoon Session devoted to Legislation; Reports of
Resolutions Committee; Reports of Planning and Pro-
gram Committee; Report of Student Loan Committee;
Short Courses for Architects at the University of Flori-
da; Selection of Place for Annual Meeting.
Complete minutes will be filed with the District Di-
rectors for the information and use of all architects.
As your Secretary looks over the notes of the minutes
he realizes that only the strict, business-like manner in
which President Pancoast conducted the meeting suc-
ceeded in permitting the transaction of the above items.
President Pancoast announced the new Legislative
Committee as follows . four members being added
since the first announcement:



LEGISLATIVE COMMITTEE
Russell T. Pancoast, Chairman
William T. Arnett T. Angus MacEwan
George H. Spohn John E. Pierson
E. A. Ehmann Fredeiick G. Seelmann
Mellen ,C. Greeley Rob:ert Fitch Smith


"ON TO JACKSONVILLE" will be the slogan from
now until the Annual Convention in that city next De-
cember .. Having lost the honor last year by only
one vote those Jacksonvillians came prepared with
everything except the city charter with the result that
Miami, Hollywood, Sarasota, and others gracefully
withdrew and the only vote cast was 100% for "The
Gate-Way City" to the Land of Sunshine . .
For some reason or other your Secretary will always
be inclined to class the last convention in Tallahassee
as the turning point in Association gatherings and he
hopes that future meetings will prove to be as produc-
tive of interest on the part of individual architects.






To Director Sheftall and architects in District 4:
The Association's Officers are at your command, these
pages are yours to use, and you can count on the sup-
port of all architects. We wish you success in your
efforts to make the next annual convention noteworthy.
-*b *

Your Secretary appreciated the reception given the
Secretary and Treasurer's Reports for the first half of
1938. It was good to know that you approved and to
have you manifest it loudly.
HOWEVER, he desires to publicly share that en-
thusiasm and applause with all the Officers and Direct-
ors as well as a large number of the active members
who have made the record possible. Without their as-
sistance and hard work your Secretary and Treasurer
would be "out on a limb".
With your continued efforts we can make the last half
of 1938 just as fine as the first half.
Thanks.
*x- -*t *
Sometimes I think the word "Ethics" is one of
the most abused words in the English language and one
that grows to mean less each time we use it . Why
not substitute the word "Honesty" instead . The
plain every-day garden variety of "Honesty" . Not the
kind that takes a lawyer to define or interpret, but the
kind that truly carries out the "Golden Rule". It's
worth thinking about. Try it.


Good draftsmen are wanted by Jacksonville archi-
tects. Plenty of work on the boards. Write LeeRov
Sheftall.


Thought for June: A good shell is necessary for a
good nut.
Secretarily yours,
E. F. DE LA HAYE,
Sec.-Treas. The F. A. A.
