place or age in life where we begin to fully appreciate
a man and his ability that something happens to take
him away from our circle of friends.
Sorrowfully we dedicate these few lines to

brilliant patron of Beaux Esprits he leaves a vacancy

pecking away on our Underwood to get out these eigh-
teen extra copies we hope you'll read them and discuss
them at District Meetings.

odicals for the School of Architecture and Allied Arts
of the University of Florida, and Rudolph Weaver, Di-

WANTED-Architects to contribute these missing
copies provided they have them in their files or stored
away . To avoid unnecessary duplication please send
a letter to
Rudolph Weaver, Director
School of Architecture and Allied Arts
University of Florida,
stating the copies you will donate . Please, and thank
Had Director Weaver's request reached this office a
few weeks earlier we would have filled his requirements
without further search. It so happens that, Lo, after
these many years we decided to destroy hundreds of old
volumes. Wish we'd postponed the d-- job! For-
tunately we found seven volumes starting back in 1926,
(not listed above), and these have been sent to the
University . (The above d- stands for "dusty").
Didn't you read it that Way?
ARTICLE V., Section 3. Constitution. "The Board
of Directors shall annually elect a judiciary Committee
of three from its own membership and establish rules
for its guidance".
In accordance with the above all Directors are re-
quested to send the secretary a letter giving the three
names they select . The three highest in the voting
will form the Committee and the person receiving the
highest number of votes will be named as Chairman of
that Committee... Please vote today, and vote for three.
THOUGHT-When you find yourself in hot water
it is good policy to keep your mouth shut.
Convention action instructed the secretary to con-
tinue to send the Bulletin during 1939 to all architects
registered in the State of Florida. . Bulletin is grow-
ing in popularity if we are to judge from the requests
for copies. . Now goes to several State Associations,
several newspapers, The A. I. A. in Washington, sev-
eral manufacturing concerns, the A. I. A. Committee on
Affiliation, the National Council of Architectural Regis-
tration Boards, the Colegio Nacional de Arquitectos in
Havana, Cuba, and to others interested.
From The Octagon, a journal of The American Insti-
tute of Architects, we repeat the following from the
"New Year Salutation of The President", Charles D.
Maginnis, in the January number:
"At Newark and Jacksonville I had the particular
privilege of meeting the men of the State Associations,
and I observed with great satisfaction the cordiality and
effectiveness of their cooperation with chapter enter-
prises. The Florida architects were in convention,
which gave notable opportunity to meet the representa-
tive architects locally, and incidentally to perceive that
in that exotic and favored clime the practice of archi-
tecture can be as serious a business as it is with the rest
of us. Russell Pancoast presided; an impressive growth
in the Association was reported; Franklin Adams and
Rudolph Weaver gave familiar atmosphere, and a de-
lightful company at a concluding dinner with many
ladies will long be remembered. Surely there are no hap-
pier hours in the lives of architects than those in which
they exchange experiences and test one another's pro-
fessional sympathies at times like these. It is in that
atmosphere, I think, we are at our best."
At the Convention it was moved, seconded, and car-
ried, that The Florida Association of Architects affili-
ate with The American Institute of Architects. "*
Other State Association Members of The A. I. A. are:
State Association of California Architects, (307 voting
members); Michigan Society of Architects, (415 vot-
ing members); The State Association of Wisconsin
Architects, (77 voting members); Architects Society of
Ohio, (166 voting members); Kentucky Architects
Association, (38 voting members).

STATIC OR DYNAMIC-With 15 Districts in The
F. A. A. there undoubtedly will be groups of both types
.. Depending greatly on the individuals, their effec-
tiveness, efficiency, and the desire to attain results. ..
plus unselfishness . which means working for the
common welfare . Thank goodness we have mighty
little static within the Association . Hope you, as
an architect with an interest in the profession, will join
the Associaion this year, if not now a member . .With
important legislation on the program you need us and
we need you.

As your secretary and treasurer we were a bit proud
of our reports given at the Convention. Our heart,
epiglottis and Adam's apple became mixed up at the
meeting so we take this opportunity to say, "Thanks
a lot, fellows, for your spontaneous approval."
And now, every one work for a better 1939.
Just a few years ago the secretary was always a bit
relieved when some one at the Semi-Annual Meeting
asked that the Annual Convention of The F. A. A. be
held in their city. The past three years, however, have
seen competition growing for this event, and it is not
too early to start thinking about it if you want your city
to have the honor . Arq. Horacio Navarrete, newly
elected President of the Colegio Nacional De Arqui-
tectos, La Habana, Cuba, has sent in a letter reiterat-
ing the invitation tendered by the Executive Committee
under former Presidente Sr. Cayado.
LOST-A rendering exhibited at the Convention by
T. Hunter Henderson of Miami Beach has been miss-
ing. As Fred Bucky returned all displays to District
Directors we ask that they check up to see if Fred un-
intentionally put it in the wrong package. If found
please send to Henderson at P. O. Box 1051, Miami
Beach, and also notify the secretary. Thanks a lot.
District 4, Jacksonville, having weekly luncheon
meetings and Director Bunch writes in for more sta-
tionery . "They pass resolutions here and have me
write all over the place" . Stay with 'em, Bunch
. Stationery coming and here's the Constitution in
this issue . By-Laws will follow in future Bulletins.
W. K. Mitchell, Head, Auditory Instruction, General
Extension Division of the University of Florida, and
O. C. R. Stageberg making progress on planning the
short course in architecture May 18th and 19th at the
University . Keep it in mind and support it.
