U. S. ARCHITECTS' FUND FOR R. I. B. A.
At the December meeting of the New York Chapter,
A. I. A., a resolution was passed to raise a U. S. Archi-
tects' fund to be sent to the R. I. A. B. to be used for
British architects and their children. . The magnifi-
cent and all-out war effort being made by Britain has
resulted in the stoppage of all normal building andl has
meant a loss of livelihood to British architects. . Will
you do your bit for your colleagues by making a contri-
bution now? .. Any amount-$1.00 to $5.00 or more
-will be greatly appreciated. .. Please make your check
payable to the U. S. ARCHITECTS' FUND FOR R.
I. B. A. and mail promptly to 115 EAST 40th STREET.
NEW YORK CITY.
The above is condensed from a letter by the Com-
mittee, William Lescaze, Chairman. .. $10,000.00 is the
goal for the fund. . by the end of March. . So
kindly mail your check immediately. . Help show your
colleagues that FLORIDA ARCHITECTS are glad to
help.. Every dollar helps.

COMMENTS .With 82 architects having sent in
their dues to date we are confident that our-membership
for 1941 will exceed the 133 total for 1940 . Particu-
larly in view of the fact that the 82 so far consist of
54 Regulars, 14 who failed to remit in 1940, and 14
new members .. Hope we are able to convince another
41 for March that your Association is giving you service
between meetings and conventions . We delayed the
February BULLETIN four days in order to give you the
Bill and the information data over three weeks earlier
than we had hoped . Trust you, you, and you have
found time to contact the Legislators from your District
. . Your Association is not mercenary but we do expect,
frankly, that there will be more contributions to the
Legislative Fund . As an Association we do not need
new legislation, . but as a practicing architect you cer-
tainly do . Let's go!
The need for placing BULLETIN data in the hands of
the printer before the month is completed, coupled with
the fact that one cannot expect a Director to mail in
single checks the same day as received, demands that
credit for promptness be given to the architects above
mentioned in Districts 3 and 13 .. They met their obli-
gations in January.
Also desire to bring to your attention the total of
eight Junior Associate Members to date, which ties the
total for 1940 .. Can we double it?
ANNUAL REPORT TO A. I. A... On the last day
of January we completed and sent to The Institute's
Board of Directors an itemized report on enrollment,
governing board, meetings, committees, survey of the
profession within the State, accomplishments, names
of all Voting Members, names of Junior Members, etc.,
for the year 1940. . The data requested first appeared
as formidable as an income tax report, but with our
records in first-class tabulation and segregation it did
not prove difficult... For your information the following
facts may be of interest:
Voting Members totaled 133 as against 141 in 1939.
44 of the 133 are A. I. A. members; whereas in 1939,
58 of the 141 were also A. I. A. members; showing a
loss of 14 A. I. A. men for 1940, and an increase of
6 Non-Institute members.
Junior Associate Memberships increased from 5 to 8.
Serving cn our eight major committees are 24 A. I. A.
members and 23 Non-Institute members.
Six of our 16 Officers and Directors are Institute
SFlorida had a total of 604 registered architects, with
387 residing within the State. Of this 387, 133 or about
34.4% were Voting Members in The F. A. A.
The School of Architecture and Allied Arts at the
University of Florida in Gainesville has seven instruct-
ors. Six of these are Voting Members in The F. A. A.
74 students are enrolled and of this total but three
are Junior Associate Members.

AN INVITATION . The Florida Association of
Architects extends a hand of" welcome to these newly
registered architects and their names will be added to
the mailing list of the BULLETIN. . Sincerely we trust
they will become Voting Members of the Association and
add their strength to the work being undertaken. The
blue card accompanying this BULLETIN gives you the
opportunity to join The F. A. A., gentlemen.
Mr. E. F. De La Haye, Secretary,
The Florida Association of Architects,
P. 0. Box 3747,
Daytona Beach, Florida.
In the spirit of fair play and to answer apparent
criticisms of the acts of the State Board appearing in
the "pink" and "yellow" sheets recently sent out with
the BULLETIN, won't you please publish the following:
"SEVERAL PROTESTS HAVE BEEN VOICED
_AS TO THE IMPLIED ALLEGATIONS CON-
TAINED IN THE PINK' AND 'YELLOW'
SHEETS MAILED TO EACH ARCHITECT IN
CONNECTION WITH THE PROPOSED RE-
VISIONS OF ARCHITECTURAL ,REGISTRIIA-
TION-ACT. IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT THE
'PINK' SHEET REFERS ONLY TO MATTERS IN
WHICH THE PROPOSED 1941 REVISIONS DIF-
FER FROM THE ATTEMPTED 1939 REVISIONS
AND SUCH COMMENTS AND CRITICISMS DO
NOT IN ANY WAY REFER TO OR CRITICISE
THE MEMBERS OF THE BOARD OR THEIR.
ACTIONS UNDER THE EXISTING LAW OF 1915.
THE PURPOSE OF THE 'PINK' AND 'YELLOW'
SHEETS WAS TO BRING TO THE ATTENTION
OF THE LEGISLATORS THE FACT THAT IN
THE 1941 EDITION SEVERAL OF THE OBJEC-
TIONABLE FEATURES CONTAINED IN THE
1939 EDITION HAVE BEEN ELIMINATED."
Very truly yours,
MELLEN C. GREELEY,
Secretary and Treasurer, The State Board of
Notwithstanding the fact that the pink and yellow
sheets sent'out with the copies of the proposed Archi-
tects' Bill were plainly headlined in heavy type "Memo-
randum of Essential. Differences Between Architects'
Bill of 19319 Session and Architects' Bill of 1941 Ses-
sion and "Analysis of Changes Made by Proposed 1941
Amend ments to Architects' Law" it appears .that some
readers have taken the comments regarding the differ-
ences between the contents of the old Bill and the new
Bi:,, as comments regarding the State Board of Archi-
tecture., Evidently the power of reading and simultan-
cously remembering the subject of the reading mattcr
is sadly, lacking with some folks. Trust this comment
and the accompanying letter from Mellen Greeley of
the State Board of Architecture will aid in correcting 'th
incapacity of understanding and stimulate the power
of perception of those individuals who create topics to
the matter they read. We suggest they take a course in
mnemonics, and hope they do not expect us to display
an abundance of toleration .for such simple errors on

District 8, was elected to membership 'in the A. I. A.

PUBLIC RELATIONS.. "PENCIL POINTS, be-
ginning with the February issue, 1941, issue, will carry
as a regular feature a section devoted to Public Rela-
tions. Kenneth Reid, Editor, announces this section Avill
be conducted by David Knickerbacker Boyd, F. A. I. A.,'
of Philadelphia, who has for years been unselfishly
devoting a large part of his time and energy to promot-
ing better understanding by the public of the nature and.'
value of an architect's services. The objective of the
Public Relations Section -will be to furnish information
that will be of use to individual architects and groups of
architects who are striving everywhere to overcome
public apathy, or uninhabited extra-professional compe-
tition, or both. The material printed will be compiled
from the point of view of the interests of the whole pro-
fession of architecture, including all reputable architec-
tural societies, institutes, leagues, or whatnot, and all
professionally minded architects, architectural drafts-
men, and architectural students. Except when otherwise
noted, any practitioner or group-will 'be privileged to
make use of any of the ideas presented or' even of the
literal text of radio talks, printed articles, letters, and
any other types of materials presented. We will furnish
the ammunition; it will be up to you to make use of it.",
COMMENT... O.K., Mr. Vice-President Bob Weed,
as Chairman of the Public Relations Committee of The
F. A. A. here's an opportunity for you and your com-
mittee-to really go to work. David KnickerbackeT Boyd,
as Contributing Editor of the above-mentioned feature
of Pencil Points, has requested copies of the BULLETIN
be sent to him, and I know he'll be interested inr hearing
from you and your committee.
An old maid, shocked at the language used by two
telephone wire fixers working on a pole nearby, wrote
complainingly to the telephone company and the. fore-
man was asked to report.. He did .. as follows:
"Me -and Bi'l were on the job. 4 was up the pole arid
accidently let some hot lead fall on Bill. It went down
Then Bill said, 'You must be more careful, Harry.'

SEVENTY-THIRD ANNUAL CONVENTION A.
I. A. The American Institute of Architects will hold
its seventy-third annual convention in the Yosemite
Valley, California, May 17-19, 1941. .. Every Institute
Member and other members of the profession, all stu-
dents and teachers in architectural schools,, members of
the Producers Council, and all friends of the profession
are invited to attend the meeting. They and their fami-
lies and friends will be welcomed.
The trip to California will give those from the East
an opportunity to travel across many of the Western
states, visit some of their historical spots, and see a bit
of their renowned beauty. The scenery is the kind that
will appeal to the architects' imagination and they will
be entranced with the .brilliant sunlight, the lavish and
ever-changing colors, and'the tremendous majesty of
the Western scene.
But of greater importance is the opportunity this
occasion-offers to bring together the architects from the
great metropolitan centers, from the smaller cities and
f from communities removed from important centers, and
to promote their acquaintance and good fellowship along
the way. To journey for three or four days in company
with your fellows will make the trip more enjoyable in
every way, and of lagting remembrance.
To make this possible The Institute will conduct a
tour across country, traveling by night and sightseeing
by day, on a special convention train. It has arranged
with the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway to
provide the personally conducted tour in the special con-
vention train, running in as many sections as required.
The -train will run from Chicago to Los Angeles, with
* side trips to. Taos, Santa Fe, Grand Canyon, Boulder
Dam, Mariposa Big Trees, Wawona, and to Yosemite
Valley, where the convention sessions will be held.
The tickets for this personally conducted tour will be
sold only by The Institute, and it will reserve and
assign the space and accommodations on the train and
at the hotels in the Yosemite.
Those not on the train will pay Yosemite hotel lills
directly to hotels, and will pay registration fee to and
purchase annual dinner tickets from The Institute, at
The January issue of The Octagcn, published by the
Institute, contains the itinerary of the convention tour
and we have two copies we will send to any non-Institute
member who might be interested in making the trip.
F. A. A. DELEGATES TO CONVENTION .From
the By-Laws: "The Executive Board shall select from
among those voting members willing and able to go to
the Annual Convention of the American Institute of
Architects, delegates eligible under the Institute By-
Laws to represent the Association."
The Association is allowed two delegates this year and
President Hadley will soon place the selection of dele-
gates before the Executive Board.
