Nota Bene: Well, fellows, here's Number 2 of the
Bulletin and hope you'll like it. President Russell
evened up the score with the Secretary by asking that
the Bulletin be sent to all architects, at least for a
while, if possible to do so. Personally we do not mind
the job but you must assist with payment of dues for
the printer is the biggest and toughest hombre I know
(honestly he has a face as soft as the top of an anvil)
while we are generally referred to as-a "half-pint."
KEEP THIS ISSUE FOR FUTURE REFER-
ENCE, as it contains the list of Districts and other
items that will not be published in future issues unless
a change is involved.
As we know our Emily Post we are going to start
this issue with President Russell's-note . and gamble
that you will read the rest of the Bulletin.
Started to call it the "President's message" but it
seems that we get a lot of that in our everyday reading
and this Bulletin is supposed to be somewhat different,
To All Architects Registered in the State of Florida:
Del promised you an article from me in this Bulletin,
Sbut his chief idea was to get me started on Association
activities and his scheme is working.
Past President Fred Seelmann has introduced me to
the files he accumulated last year and, judging by the
size of them, there will be less fish caught this year
than I had anticipated ...
Seriously, there are many things for the F. A. A. to
accomplish. And at this time I mention the two most
important objectives for 1938:
First: Continuation of the good work of the Legisla-
tive Committee. Their effort to produce a Bill to im-
prove the standing of the architect and the architectural
profession in the state of Florida has been undertaken
as a real problem. Last year they studied the present
Registration Act and Acts now in force in other states,
they secured legal advice, and days of hard work have
been done. Interesting and sincere debates on wording
and meaning have been held in Association and District
The Bill must clearly outline its purpose and it rrmust
be enforceable. It must work for the welfare of our
clients and the public. It should be in harmony with the
legislation proposed by the Florida Engineering
Society. These qualities should insure the Bill being
acceptable to the Legislature.
I believe the Legislative Committee is now prepared
to write the long-discussed Bill and I trust that this
Committee, with Bob Smith as Chairman, will continue
to serve the Association with the ability they have
shown during the past year.
Second: The second important objective, it seems to
me, is to finally have the Florida Association of Archi-
tects become a member of the American Institute of
Architects. An amendment to the By-Laws made at the
recent convention now makes this possible, and I hope it
will become an established fact this year.
In addition to these two main objectives there are
many other things that are also important, and they will
be brought to your attention in later issues. If every
architect in this state could have close connection with
the activities of the Association there would never be a
question on the importance of a strong state organization.
In order that some of these activities may be brought to
your attention I have asked the secretary to continue
sending the new Bulletin to all architects, providing the
response in membership warrants so doing.
I hope that all directors will do everything they can to
increase the membership to the point necessary for real
strength and resultant progress and I ask you as indi-
viduals to join with us in our effort to better conditions
and to carry out the objective of our Association, "To
organize and unite in fellowship the architects of the
State of Florida and to combine their efforts to promote
the artistic, scientific and practical efficiency of the pro-
Signed, RUSSELL PANCOAST, President.

The above list makes a doggone good start and your
Secretary trusts the balance of the "oldtimers" will re-
new their membership without further procrastination.
Let's eclipse the record of 181 members we had last year.
DUES ARE DUE
Uncle George Pfeiffer, our only Life and Honorary
Member, even though exempt from dues has sent in
twenty dollars for the Legislative Fund.
Thanks, Uncle George.
In this issue we desire to stress the importance of hav-
ing more Junior Members. It is up to the active mem-
bers to extend the hand of fellowship to these young men
so they will know about this F.A.A. Make a note of the
fact that these young fellows are darned important cog
wheels in the scheme of-things. They are the ones who
will carry on in the future if the F.A.A. is to cont nue.
SJunior membership dues are but one dollar per year.
"Any architectural d lraftsman and/or any student of
I the Department of Architecture of a university or col-
lege of Florida, except members of the freshman class,
is eligible for Junior Membership."
"Application for membership by students must, bear
the signature of the Head of the department of archi-
tecture of the university or college, and that of a drafts-
man must have the signature of two active members."
. Hope Rudolph Weaver, as Head of the Depart-
ment of Architecture at the University of Florida, doesn't
miss the above item.
My error! Sorry! In sending the Bulletin to all arch-
itects we forgot to omit Dues cards to those few who
were paid up. This answers your note, Theodore, and
hope the dther nine will "certainly" my "Excuse to me,"
Robert S. Pringle, Atlanta, Georgia
Frank V. Bodine, Orlando, Florida
Many of us will read of the passing on of Frank V.
Bodine with deep regrets. To know- him, as your secre-
tary did was to admire him. Above all else he was a
real Man, sincere f purpose. His quaint philosophy left
you determined to not only be an Architect but a Build-
er,-a BUILDER OF MEN.

Give your support to your Director by attending the
meetings he calls. Help him have action to report in the
letter he must file with the secretary. These letters are
read at the annual meeting-some of them may be pub-
lished in the Bulletin-make your District active enough
so that a blind man can tell it without having to feel
for it with his cane.
Unique Unity! John Allan Long, 526 Angela Street,
Key West, is the only architect in Monroe County, our
District 15. We expect 100% attendance at all meet-
ings and some interesting reports from John. How about
dropping him a line once in a while.
The stencils for the address of Hon. Cary D. Landis
are being cut and if all goes well copies will be mailed
about the 15th of March to all active members in good
Thought for this month: The fact that man is made
of dust is no reason why other men should plaster him
DUES ARE DUE
Rather glad that President Russell quoted the objec-
tives of the Association in his note, for we are apt to
forget we do have a definite purpose ahead of us. You'll
find it on the front page of the Bulletin hereafter. With
your help we can accomplish what it sets forth. Without
your cooperation a few will work hard but results will
not be up to par. To "get" you must "give."
Nine new Registered Architects were added to the
Roster when they succeeded in passing the examination
of the Florida State Board in Jacksonville, Florida, last
January. We'll introduce them in the Bulletin for April.
We purposely refrained making comments on President
Russell's letter as it plainly imparts important objec-
tives. Our last item is a request that you turn back to
the front page and re-read President Russell's letter so
that you will better remember its message.
And here's hoping some of you have thoughts or items
to send in for the Bulletin. Let's put "Bullets" in this
Bulletin. No Blanks. Send in your "Super-X" dynamic
thoughts and make them snappy. Are you with me?
