EXPERIENCE . What we have left after our
WELCOME . To Franklin S. Bunch, who has
returned to Jacksonville, Florida, and is rolling up his
sleeves in preparation to aid the Legislative Committee.
SOUTH CAROLINA . According to a letter
received from K. S. Espedahl, formerly an architect
in Daytona Beach, Florida, but now located in Colum-
bia, South Carolina, the Registered Architects of South
Carolina are making preparations for a state organi-
zation . and he desires a list of a few of the import-
ant bills passed in the Florida Legislature during recent
years in the interest of the architects ... Kaare, you'll
have an opportunity to share our disappointments when
my letter arrives . .Best o' Luck to South Carolina
RICE AND OLD SHOES... Ever since we learned,
a couple of weeks ago, that Mr. and Mrs. Charles
Hundley Singleton had announced the marriage of their
daughter Anna Laura to George H. Spohn of Miami and
Coral Gables, on April the third, we've intended jot-
ting down something to give George and Anna a good
send-off through the BULLETIN . .And came mighty
close to forgetting all about it . George, as you
know, has been and still is as active as a buzz-saw on
our Legislative Program during which time he
must have acquired a large amount of indulgence and
patience . Now, perhaps, he can plan a program
that will involve two, possibly three or four subjects
S. We know George and Anna have the best wishes
of all Association members . They'll be at home at
114 Antilla Avenue, Coral Gables . And, George,
don't discount a woman's intuition . that strange
something that tells her she is right even when she is
THRIFT .. AND THEN, there's the Scotchman
who had his daughter's wedding ceremony held in the
back yard so the chickens could get the rice.

DISTRICT MEETINGS... All Directors recently
received a letter from the secretary at the request of
President Hadley, calling for a District Meeting and
a start on a membership impetus before the Semi-Annual
Meeting. Results will be in Directors' Reports at the
May meeting., and we'll give you some of it in the
UNIFICATION . The Committee on State
Organization, A. I. A., Frederic A. Fletcher, Chairman,
is doing a lot of good work. Too long for publication
in the BULLETIN, but just right for reading at the Semi-
Annual Meeting, is their Report of Joint Committee on
FIRE . About a year ago we saved a clipping
from a pamphlet, intending to give it to you in the
BULLETIN, but it was mislaid, and sorry we cannot give
the source of information . Here it is.
U. S. 21-year Indictment Against Fire Scourge
If a residential street were run from New York to
San Francisco, and the property lining its entire 2,500
miles divided into lots of 50-foot frontage, the property
loss from fire in America during the past twenty-one
years would pay for building $10,000.00 houses on each
of these lots-on both sides of the street. There would
also be enough to buy furniture valued at $2,000.00 for
each home and a $1,000.00 motor car, $100.00 for cloth-
ing for each of five persons in each house. In addition,
a mansion costing $100,000.00 could be built every
half mile, on both sides of the street. And $570,000,-
000.00 would still be left over for paving the street and
Ten thousand horrible human deaths a year for twen-
$415,000,000.00 a year for twenty-one years--$1,-
150,000.00 every day. $8,700,000,000.00 is America's
fire record for the past twenty-one years.
Next time your local fire-department urges you to co-
operate during Fire-Prevention Week just think what
the above facts mean, and resolve to make every week
a Careful Week.
Looking forward to seeing YOU at the Gainesville
meeting, May 4, will say Au revoir and rush this to the
printer in order that you will receive it a day or two
before the meeting.
