THE VALUE OF A BULLETIN
By George L. Pfeiffer, Miami, Florida
"I have been invited to contribute a short article for
the monthly Bulletin. This publication being a new
venture, I select it as a suitable subject for my con-
tribution at this time.
A periodical publication, issued and maintained to
serve, not only the interests of the architectural profes-
sion, but also to broadcast practical and reliable in-
formation about the architects services rendered direct-
ly to his clients and incidentally to the entire communi-
ty in which he operates, has unlimited potentialities for
sane and effective support of substantially every branch
of human activities.
When construction and building operations fall be-
low normal, either locally or nationally, every other
industry will measurably decline and therefore, every
factor -and agency, which, by the promulgation of re-
liable information about the various phases of building.
clarifies, develops and encourages the building activi-
ties, will thereby render valuable services for the com-
mon welfare.
To accomplish these laudable objects is a very large
endeavor, often obstructed by serious difficulties; to
eventually reach the goal, each of the sponsors must be
blessed with unbounded faith, cooperative persistence
and untiring patience. Worthy objects can not be ac-
complished without devotion.
To begin with, every architect should seriously read
every issue and absorb and consider its contents, not
only from his personal point of view but from that of
the other readers. He should not only accept but be
willing to give. He should endeavor to enrich the con-
tents by contributions upon timely and interesting sub-
jects. The field is so large and so varied in character
that each individual inclination can be satisfied. Criti-
cism per se should be avoided and constructive criti-
cism encouraged.
Inasmuch as most subjects will, to some extent at
least, be known to every architect the circle of regular
readers should be gradually enlarged and made to in-
clude actual builders, realty developers and other in-
terested citizens.
In conclusion be assured of my earnest cooperation
and of my best wishes for constantly increasing suc-
cess.



A letter sent to Mr. William H. Garns, Archi-
tect, of Vero Beach, Florida, has been returned
with the information that he has passed on to meet
the Great Architect. No details given.

ALL DIRECTORS ARE REQUESTED BY
PRESIDENT PANCOAST TO CALL A MEETING
OF THE ARCHITECTS IN THEIR DISTRICT
DURING THE WEEK OF MAY 8-14, TO FURTH-
ER THE INTERESTS OF THE ASSOCIATION,
provided said Districts have not held their quota of two
meetings since January last. SEND OR BRING
WRITTEN REPORTS OF THESE MEETINGS
TO THE SEMI-ANNUAL MEETING.






WITH THE DISTRICTS
Heading the list with 100% attendance plus "four
draftsmen and a Landscape Architect for good mea-
sure, Director Stripling of District 2 reports a fine
meeting and luncheon on Thursday5 April 7th, in Talla-
hassee.
From Director Arnett, District 3: "A meeting at-
tended by 9 of the 13 architects from District 3 was
held at the Primrose Grille in Gainesville on Wednes-
day night, March 30th. A brief survey of the annual
meeting in Tallahassee was followed by a lengthy and
detailed discussion of the objectives set up by President
Pancoast for the year's work . Interest in the af-
fairs of the Association is high in this vicinity and an-
other meeting is planned for early in May."
Elliott B. Hadley, Director of District 7, reports a
joint meeting of the Florida Central Chapter A. I. A.
and the architects in his district, April 4th, in Tampa,
to hear Mr. W. T. Warren, F.A.I.A., on the relation
of the architect to the new Housing Laws. With 34
architects in this district.and with the interest being dis-
played on the subject of housing we are looking for-
ward to receiving a good report.:
Similar meetings were held in Jacksonville, Pensa-
cola arid Miami.
R. Daniel Hart, Director District No. 1, has called
a meeting for April 30th in Pensacola.



President Pancoast announces the personnel of
The Planning and Program Committee:
Franklin 0. Adams, Tampa, Chairman _. Four years
Mellen C. Greeley, Jacksonville .._. Four years
Rudolph -Weaver, Gainesville Three years
Frederick G. Seelmann, Palm Beach _.. Three years
Kenneth W. Miller, Orlando ___..____ Two years
0. C. R. Stageberg, Gainesville .__... -.. Two years
Robert L. Weed, Miami __._ __ ..._ One year
Franklin S. Bunch, Jacksonville ---___--------____ One year
Heretofore, with a small Planning Committee and
with a general shifting of the membership of that com-
mittee each year, it has been hard work to establish the
aims of the Association. We believe the above Commit-
tee assures the planning and F O L LO W IN G
THROUGH TO COMPLETION objectives long con-
templated for the benefit of the,.Association and its
members.

Thought for the Month: Santa" Claus always Thears
long white whiskers and a red suit. When you fail to
see them doubt you are getting something for nothing.







O Tempora! O Mores!
Sometimes we wonder if present-day architects are
as well read as Ye Olde Timers, or are we going "Mod-
ern" in this respect?
In our younger days we worked, played billiards,
fished, and played cribbage with grand "Old Timers",
courtly of manner, who could reminisce with twinkling
eyes, raconteurs of notable topics and persons, and who,
when given an answer that carried an unexpected thrust
cried, "Touche".
We learned many things by association with these
kindly old gentlemen, grew to love some of them, and
endeavored to absorb their fine qualities and character-
istics . . Their mental living subconsciously crept
into their work and into our lives.
What are we as the "Old Timers" of today giving
the beginners of tomorrow? .. Hfow are we influencing
the future of Architecture and Architects? Or do
we just idle away our opportunities and simply cry as
our headline states: "O the Times! O the Manners !"


Future members of the P. and P. Committee will be
made as follows:
"Each year hereafter, following the annual meeting,
the President of the Association shall appoint two mem-
bers to serve four years and in case of resignation or
disability of any member the President shall at all times
make new appointments to keep the membership of
this Committee complete to the number of eight."

HELP:-Tampa expects to start the working draw-
ings for its low-rent housing project about May 9th
S. . M. Leo Elliott, architect, wants names of avail-
able architects and draftsmen . .. Address him at
Penthouse, Citizens Bank Building, Tampa, Florida.


A Byron Williams, 408 Melson Building, Newport
News, Virg:nia, should have been included in the list
of names given last month of architects who received
their registration in the State of Florida last January.

F. A A. LIBIRARY: The Florida Association of
Architects has a library at the University of Florida
for the use of students, and the last addition, we be-
lieve, was a large number of fine books from the library
of Tony Zink who was the Association's secretary for
many years . Director Weaver of the University
reports this library is in constant use . More books
are needed . Help build it this year by sending or
bringing books you can spare.

REMINDER: Don't forget to always write FLORI-
DA in full. It's as euphonious as its meaning.







LEGISLATION: It is nearing election time in the
State of Florida and to use the words of Mr. C. W.
Hunter, who spoke about "Legislation With Regard
to the Architectural Profession" at the last Annual
Meeting:-"Select your Legislators BEFORE you elect
them. Talk with them and find out where they stand.
Don't kick afterwards, but work for new legislators if
incumbents are not what you want".
Good advice . Let's use it . Help lay the
foundation for a successful Legislative Program.



GROWING PAINS . Once again the Bulletin
goes to press with more than the four pages first
planned per issue. Six pages, however, must be the
limit in order to keep down costs, so please be patient
if some items are held over for an issue or two.


Found old Rosters in the files today that listed 273
architects registered in the State of Florida in 1924
.1928 listed 744 . 1936 listed 358 . 1937
listed 492 . 24 names added to the Roster last Janu-
ary makes the present total 513, deducting three deaths
that have come to the attention of this office. .. 1939-?

/
TOUCHE: Some times we hold a picture too close
to our nose and often times do not realize the actual
meaning of a printed line; and so your secretary asks
the members of the Association to pardon him for the
erroneous titles of "1938 Members" and "Active Mem-
bers" given to the lists of names published in the last
two issues of the Bulletin . These lists should have
been and hereafter will be headed, "1938 Paid-Up
Members". For this Association (like any other
Association or Club) has members, whose names have
not appeared as yet on the lists, who pay their dues year
in and year out; who are hard workers for the good of
the Association and the architectural profession, and
who truly are ACTIVE MEMBERS all the time .
Sincerely regret the misleading impression the titles
implied.


Thought after the above: When you're sitting on a
box of dynamite there's no particular advantage in
crossing your legs.
Secretarily yours,
E. F. De La Haye,
Sec.-Treas. The F. A. A.
