HB-255 KILLED IN SENATE COMMITTEE
Your secretary has been advised by Senator Shands, member of the Senate Educa-
tion Committee, that HB-255, allowing registration without examination to graduates
of Florida architectural schools, was killed in committee.
In order to get this news to the architects with the least delay, we are using
the mimeographed form of bulletin for this .issue.
The response of the architects over the state to the appeal for help from your
Legislative Comittee has been very gratifying since at least one ~mber of the
legislature ocoianted that be had never seen such opposition to a bill build up
between Friday of one week and Tuesday of the following week. It Just goes to
prove what a grcup of men can do when they are motivated by principles which they
believe to be just and right and in the public interest
There is one angle to it, however, which none of us can afford to forget.
This bill was introduced and had passed the House by a big majority before
any concerted action could be directed against it. There will be other legis-
latures and other bills.

the Association will be held in the office of Robert M. Little, 605 Lincoln

FLORIDA N1ORTH CHAPTER BARBECUE...The April meeting of the Florida North Chapter
was held in Goineaville starting off with a barbecue in the late afternoon,
followed by a business meeting, after which members were invited to review an
exhibit of work by architects from the Orlando area and the work of students in
the School of Architecture.
This meeting was held in Gainesville with the idea that it might in some
way take the place of the semi-annual Aso"ciation meeting which was farerly
held here in the spring of the year. There is great need for more contact
between the students and the architects of Florida and it is hoped that sme
means can be worked out whereby meetings in Gaineaville can be resumed.
The architects of northern Florida may have been busy in the last six months
but statistics indicate that they spend very little of their income for grooeries.
