COMMENT. . After a dull period of seven years,
1933-1939, with only five State Association Members,
the'successful achievement of nine additional State Asso-
ciation Members of The A. I. A. during 1940 indicates
the ability of the Committee on State Organizations of
The A. I. A., as well as the fact that much work was
being accomplished by State Association leaders within
their respective State groups . it is well . 1941
should see another subs antial increase to uphold that
old adage: "In Unity there is Strength."

THANKS . We take this opportunity to extend
our appreciation to Oscar T. Johnson, General Manager
of the Hollywood Beach Hotel, for his cooperation with
The Florida Association of Architects to mak-e this
Annual Convention the finest meeting ever held by our

IMPORTANT . In order that the BULLETIN and
other data reaches you please inform the Secretary
regarding change in address . Last week we checked
the addresses of all architects registered in the State
of Florida with cards that had been sent in with dues
and with the new issue of the Roster as published by
the Florida State Board of Architecture and found that
over 200 addresses needed correction.

Forty States now are operating under registration
laws for.architects in addition to the District of Colum-
bia, Alaska, Hawaii, the Philippine Islands and Puerto
Rico . States without registration laws are Kansas,
Maine, Massachusetts, Missouri, Nevada, New Hamp-

shire, Vermont, and Wyoming. These States, with the
possible exception of Vermont, are making a definite
effort to pass registration laws, according to the Com-
mittee on Registration Laws of the American Institute
of Architects, of which C. Julian Oberwarth of Frank-
fort, Ky., is chairman.

LEGISLATION ... On November 9th, the members
of the Legislative Committee, together with representa-
tives of the Florida State Board of Architecture and
officers of The Florida Association of Architects, met
at the San Juan Hotel, Orlando, Florida, to discuss the
Legislative Program and proposed changes to the Archi-
tects' Registration Act. Present were: Frederick G.
Seelmann, of Palm Beach; Russell T. Pancoast, of
Miami; Mellen C. Greeley and Franklin S. Bunch, of
Jacksonville; William T. Arnett, of Gainesville; James
A. Stripling, of Tallahassee; James Gamble Rogers, of
Winter Park; Elliott B. Hadley, of St. Petersburg; M.
LeoElliott, of Tampa; and E. F. De La Haye, of
Daytona Beach .. The final result is the copy of the
proposed bill accompanying this BULLETIN.

HOW TRUE ... "In a general way, the public knows
what to expect from a physician, a dentist, or lawyer,
but the average prospective builder looks upon the archi-
tect as a mere "exterior decorator", one to be avoided
if he can persuade his contractor, or so-called builder,
to assume such duties. If architecture received only
a fraction of the publicity that is given to the medical
profession, to dentistry, or to law, there would be little
need for specialized information of the nature that is
so much neglected as to cause the public to form false
ideas and to express unfounded opinions as to the value
of architectural services.
"Do ,we hang our code of ethics too high, or is it
that we are indolent in publicizing and benefiting our
profession as a group? I regret to say I feel it is basi-
cally the latter.
"Architects should instruct home builders how to dis-
tinguish between a speculative-built house and a well-
constructed building. While not all architects are in-
terested in the residential field, it is the home owner
who also builds the commercial and industrial structures.
"It cannot be repeated too often that the profession
of architecture is just what its members are willing to
make it. We should think and act unitedly and unsel-
fishly if we are to deserve the respect and recognition
of the buying public."-Paul Gerhardt, Jr., President
Illiwofis Society of Architects.
