NUMBER 6


WE DEDICATE

THIS ISSUE OF

THE BULLETIN

TO THE

ARCHITECTS

OF MIAMI BEACH






TARDY . Sorry this issue of the BULLETIN is a
bit late but, with much to do, we concentrated on get-
ting out the necessary letters, By-Law changes, Char-
ter revision, minutes of Executive Board, membership
cards, Resolutions, minutes of regular meeting, etc., as
they seemed to demand first attention. Also see fol-
lowing item.




FLORIDA ASSOCIATION OF ARCHITECTS,
STATE ASSOCIATION MEMBER, THE AMERI-
CAN INSTITUTE OF ARCHITECTS.

With a well-earned sigh of satisfaction for a finally
accomplished endeavor we give the following telegram
to all and sundry:

JNB27 26 NT= WASHINGTON DC 14
E F DE LA HAYE, SECTY

FLORIDA ASSOCIATION OF ARCHITECTS
ELECTED STATE ASSOCIATION MEMBER OF
INSTITUTE EFFECTIVE MAY FOURTEEN.
NOTIFICATION LETTER FOLLOWS.
ASSOCIATION ENTITLED TO ONE DELEGATE.
FORMAL NOTICE MAILED. BEST WISHES.
CHARLES T. INGHAM.

-*- *

Letters were also received from Frederic A. Fletcher
and Thomas Pym Cope of the Institute's Committee on
State Organization expressing delight and best wishes.
Glad we put it over in time to have Bob Weed be our
delegate at the A. I. A. Annual Convention in Louis-
ville, Kentucky . Fourteen State Societies now are
state members of the Institute . While the Committee
on State Organization of the A. I. A. with Mr. Fletcher
as Chairman automatically dissolved at the close of the
convention, it will be many a moon before we forget
their remarkable cooperation and assistance . They
promised to look after Bob at the convention and we'll
expect to hear from him either through the BULLETIN or
at the Annual Convention in Hollywood.




MEMBERSHIP . While all registered architects
are qualified for membership in The F. A. A. here's
hoping members do not feel that all they need do is pay
dues . How high you assay is measured by your
activities within the Association.







OUTLINE REPORT . SEMI-ANNUAL MEET-
ING .. 28 registered architects, 5 faculty members, 10
or more architectural students were present . very
good for mid-year meeting . .and in spite of much
to do in so few hours there always seems to be enough
gasoline to keep the meeting climbing hills at good
speed . Treasurer's report showed cash in bank at
$476.78 and all bills paid. ... Membership total of 89
(Don't look at page four at this time) . Meeting
started off with the resolutions passed by the Executive
Board about one A. M. . Copies of the minutes of
this Executive Board meeting have been sent to all
Directors and members of the Association should ask
to see them at next District Meeting . .Complete
minutes of the regular meeting will be sent to Directors
with this BULLETIN . Just hitting the few high spots
here . Made a couple minor changes to By-Laws and
the old Charter was knocked into a cocked hat . .
At the same time we might add that if the new one
lasts for twenty-six years we'll be satisfied . The
Directors' Reports were rather meagre except in four
instances . Same for Committee Reports . Courtney
Stewart's report for District 11 contained twenty-five
dollars for five memberships . Special Committee on
"Charter Groups" requested to bring another report to
the Annual Convention . A tangible silence and sin-
cere regret filled the room as President Hadley an-
nounced the resignation of Franklin O. Adams as chair-
man of the Planning and Program Committee . We
accepted it as you desired, Frank, but, doggone it, here's
hoping Lady Luck follows your trail so you may return
once more to aid the Association . Be of good cheer
Rudolph Weaver appointed to head the Planning
Sand Program Committee and Franklin S. Bunch of
Jacksonville appointed to fill the vacancy created .
Henry L. Taylor, Past President, (Those last two words
are important), broke out during meeting with remarks
and suggestions that reminded us of old time meetings
when red tape was unknown and you spoke as a father
chiding a wayward child . It got results . Com-
mittee on Recommendations for Membership of State
Board of Architecture made a report that was OK and
a copy goes to the Governor . Stageberg gave addi-
tional importance to the Publicity Committee's Report
and Fred Bucky did his bit, as usual, by having F.
MacDonald Bryan, publicity agent for Jacksonville
newspapers, give us just about as fine a talk on news-
paper publicity as we have ever heard . .What was
said or thought about the so-called "Miami Beach Com-
petition" had best be omitted, except that a committee
was drafted to make a resolution about it . Legisla-
tive Committee and Legislation received its share of
time and comment . Hollywood selected as the next
Convention City . For further details see the Minutes.

COMMENT . In many respects this is the most
important page in this issue,-a sign of continued and
renewed interest in your State Association . Perhaps
lhe best reason is expressed by Bob Little, Director of
the Miami Beach District who writes: "I am hoping to
have close to 100% membership before long."

*- $* *

BY-LAWS . Perhaps the F. A. A. Committee on
By-Laws gave us a better document than we realized
when we adopted the new set at the St. Petersburg con-
vention . At any rate, the A. I. A. Committee on
State Organization like them so well they have used
them for the purpose of setting an example before other
state societies planning affiliation . Sent in two more
copies last week.







A man of worth can always talk, but talkers are not
always men of worth . .Confucius . He really said
it.


But we doubt if he interpolated:
Go chase your sylph.

]LEGISLATION . "As for my report on Legisla-
tion matters there is none because I have only received
two Directors' Reports giving recommendations for our
amendment to the Architects' Act,-one from G. M.
Peek, DeLand, and one from Bruce Kitchell from my
district . Unless the Legislative Committee receives
the reports from all Directors long before our annual
meeting there will be nothing for me to report at that
time, except inaction on the part of the membership as
a whole . I thought you should be fully informed on
this matter so that another urgent message be printed in
the next issue of the BULLETIN."
And that, folks, is what Frederick G. Seelmann is
forced to report for one of the Association's most
important committees.
Frankly, grapevine information gives two reasons for
the inactivity and lack of recommendations going to the
committee,-No. 1. . Many architects believe they
are too busy to attend a District Meeting . .No. 2
. Some Directors have failed to call meetings.
OK. . Let's call that water under the bridge .
and get a new start by asking architects as individuals
to write their ideas to the committee . Don't wait for
a meeting to be called . Talk it over with Bill and
Jack in your office and send in a letter with several
names on it, if youi agree . If you don't think alike,
write your own preferences.
THIS LEGISLATION BUSINESS IS IMPORT-
ANT TO YOU, TO YOUR CITY, AND TO YOUR
STATE.


PUBLICITY . The pamphlet issued by the A. I.
A. entitled, "Eight Reasons Why You Should Employ
An Architect" will be reproduced in the new booklet,
"Russwin Residential Hardware of Distinction" which
the Russell & Erwin Manufacturing Company, New
Britain, Connecticut, are mailing to over 100,000 pros-
pective home builders throughout the country . If
you haven't a copy suggest you write for one . It is
a choice booklet.


EXHIBIT . An exhibit of photographs of recent
architectural work in Florida is now on view in the
ground floor corridor cases of the College of Architec-
ture and Design, Detroit. The photographs, taken by







Igor B. Polevitzky and T. Trip Russell, architects of
Miami Beach, Florida, are of exteriors and interiors of
the modern work now being done in the state . .
Clipped from the Weekly Bulletin of the Michigan
Society of Architects.

SHORT COURSE IN CONCRETE . Almost
every phase of concrete construction covered in the two-
day session in Orlando, May 14 and 15 . Curing
concrete; painting concrete; joints for concrete mas-
onry; use of architectural concrete; forms for architect-
ural concrete; quality masonry units; moisture condens-
ation,-its causes and remedies; design and control of
concrete mixture; Portland cement stucco; concrete roof-
ing tile; movie of precast window frames; vibration of
concrete; concrete floors for residences; etc . Just to
show you that these courses are interesting,-and profit-
able to you.

OWN OFFICE .. John S. Lawson, A. R. I. B. A.,
has opened his own office at No. 12 Via Parigi, Palm
Beach.
*
THRIFT . A wonderful virtue in our ancestors.
3- *
JACKSONVILLE . The City of Jacksonville has
a "Building Code Committee" which will bring and keep
construction code up-to-date. This is a citizens' com-
mittee acting under appointment by the City Council
and City Commission. It is composed of three archi-
tects, three contractors, and three engineers, with an
ex-officio representative from the City Council.
The architects on this committee are-Wm. Cory
Hale, Mulford Marsh, and Ivan H. Smith. Mr. Hale
has been elected chairman of the committee and they
have started to function.

SAFETY CAMPAIGN . Wording on large sign
posted outside a Tokyo police station as a guide to
English-speaking motorists:
1. At the first rise of the police hand, stop rapidly.
2. Do not pass him by or otherwise disrespect him.
3. When a passenger of the foot hove in sight tootle
the horn slightly. Trumpet at him. Melodiously at
first, but if he still obstacles your passage tootle him
with vigor, and express by mouth more warning.
4. Beware of the wandering horse that he shall not
take fright. Do not explode exhaust box at him. Go
soothingly by.
5. Give big space to the festive cow.
6. Go soothingly in the grease mud, as there lurks
the skid demon.
Sincerely,
E. F. DE LA HAYE, Sec'y-Treas.,
