7o The Memory an Cifce's Purpose of 7This Mn ...
Sanford W. Goin
Architecture was both a cause and a pro-
fession to Sanford W. Goin, FAIA. As a
cause he preached it everywhere as the basis
for better living and sound development in
the state and region he loved. As a profes-
sion he practiced it with tolerance, with
wisdom, with integrity and with humility.
He was keenly aware that in the training
of young people lay the bright future of the
profession he served so well. So he worked
with them, counseled them, taught them by
giving freely of his interests, energies and
experience.... The Sanford W. Goin Archi-
tectural Scholarship was established for the
purpose of continuing in some measure, the
opportunities for training he so constantly
offered. Your contribution to it can thus be
a tangible share toward realization of those
professional ideals for which Sanford W
Goin lived and worked.
The Florida Central Auxiliary has
undertaken, as a special project,
to raise funds for the Sanford W.
Goin Architectural Scholarship.

As public appreciation of good design grows stronger, and housing shortages
give way to "trade-up" buying, bad house design will glut the resale market,
warns The American Institute of Architects. Senseless variations in roof line,
ornamental bric-a-brac, illogical use of building materials, uncoordinated
window sizes, and copying of details from various periods are among the com-
monest errors in poor design. Today, architects are working with lenders
and leading homebuilders to create higher design standards for American

With most building materials walls can be any shape the

precast concrete panels the architect is in charge. He can have
form . the form he wants. He can have color and texture.
Plasticity of design becomes an actuality ... not just some-
thing hoped for.
The new twin office buildings for the State of Oklahoma
are fine examples of the way design can be controlled through
the use of precast concrete panels. A bold sculptured effect
was desired . and obtained. They wanted white. They have
it. They wanted economy of construction, and they got it.
TRINITY WHITE Portland Cement (used with white
quartz in the panels for the Oklahoma job), permits the archi-

MUST OUR CITIES BE UGLY?
(Reprinted from The Florida
Realtor January 1965)
No American city can afford to
stand still, no matter how gracious,
how pleasant, how evocative its
charm. So many diverse and brutal
forces are acting upon it that it can-
not survive merely by resisting change.
It must do its best to reshape and to
rejuvenate itself to deal with these
forces. Why does it take so long for
each community to discover this

I now live by the sentimentality of

blessed by nature with beaches as
fine as anywhere, and with lakes and
Hlow much of that is left today?
The merciless subdividers have left

''he American Institute of Archi-
tects has voiced many times, to its
members and to the public, its con-
cern about the physical appearance
of our communities. Even though
many handsome buildings have been
constructed throughout the nation
and good architecture is making it-
self more evident, our communities
as a whole have become more shab-
by, more neglected, more ugly.
In an effort to bring the obvious
to the attention of those who can
effect a change, a copy of Peter
Blake's "God's Own Junkyard" was
sent to the city commissioners of
Riviera Beach, West Palm Beach, and
Lake Worth. These community lead-
ers, opinion molders, and decision
makers were asked to use their power
to curb this growing ugliness through
civic and legislative influence and
through education by example.
US 1 Is Cluttered
'lie chaos and confusion in the en-
vironment we live in should be of
serious concern to all Realtors and
Associates. Any portion of US 1, for
example, slows the endless gaudy

auto sales lots to roadside stands

they still sell hamburgers or are al-
ready converted to lunar space travel

If there is any relief from this
pounding commercial garishness, it is
usually along those undeveloped strips
which miraculously have been able
to maintain their weed status. For
them hope exists. The rest, thanks to
present-day regulations which empha-
size safety and disregard esthetics, will
be permanently defaced for our gen-
eration. We must find controls for
undeveloped %,p.II.0. not to discour-
age growth but to discipline it.
In our silence and apathy, we con-
done the visual atrocities committed
every day. We seem to believe that
the question of esthetics and good de-
sign is not a major issue. True, there
is not the realistic flavor of sales,
money, or profit, but there is the
valuable and visible sense of order.
Not to be concerned about good
design and good planning is poor
business now and bankruptcy later.
We are p.icilng the penalties right
now for things which could have been
easily considered or corrected 5 or 10
The change in this approach must
come from the people. It is they who
must demand better quality, better
planning, better ordinances or stricter
enforcement of present laws. Only
then will it become possible to create
a civic and community integrity.
I did not know a way to make the
city fathers fight for a cause which
would show no immediate results. I
did not know a way to make them
participate, other than their own de-

an ultimately more pleasing environ-
But I did know that the Palm

assist and make recommendations to
provide direction for better solutions.
The mayor of West Palm Beach
accepted the offer. lie asked the presi-
dent of the local A.I.A chapter for
assistance in the development of the

a special committee to mediate diverse
interests and get approval of plans to
beautify the area. These plans are
under preparation now.

also responded. The time came to co-

6 THE FLORIDA ARCHITECT
Demand Good House Design For More
Useable Space, Re-Sale Value, and Fun
It's high time that Americans closed
the "design gap" in their housing, says
The American Institute of Architects.
A spokesman for the national pro-
fessional society of architects puts it
this way: "We have more money to
spend and we spend more of it on our
housing than anyone else in the world.
We probably know more about build-
ing materials and construction than
anybody else. We also know more
about using design as a tool to create
human comfort and efficiency. It's
about time we put all of this know-
how together and gave Americans
housing worthy of Americans."
A number of our leading home-
builders, working with architects, are
trying to do this now and the results
are beginning to be felt, says AIA.
Another significant factor is that lead-
ing lenders' organizations such as the
United States Savings and Loan
League, are asking staff and consulting
architects to help them set up design
standards for granting loans. Several
educational booklets on design have
already been sent to lenders by the
But the vital factor, according to
the architects' society, is public de-
mand for good design. It is growing
steadily as more and more people in
today's buyer market learn to distin-
guish the good from the bad-and
refuse to buy the latter. The AIA be-
lieves that any intelligent person with
a grasp of basic principles can quickly
leani to distinguish between good and
bad design. And it's in his interest to
do so, AIA points out, for several
very good reasons: (1) Good design
makes more efficient use of space-
you get more for your money; (2)
As public and lenders grow more
knowledgeable, the badly designed
house becomes a poor investment;
(3) The well-designed house, by ap-
pealing to the sensory apparatus
which every human possesses, is
simply a lot more fun to live in.
The main factors which should in-
fluence the siting of the house on its
lot, AIA says, are the view, sun con-
trol, terrain, and the need for pri-
vacy. If the lot overlooks a mountain,
ocean or bay, the house may have to
be oriented to the west to give the
family the enjoyment of a breathtak-
ing view. In such cases, the owner
will decide to put up with the heat
and glare of west sunlight. In the
great majority of cases, however, the
lot has no such superior view and the
owner has to "make" a view. Then
sensible siting rules should be fol-
lowed. Major glass areas should be
oriented southward. In the summer,
when the sun rides high, a roof over-
hang will block out glare and heat.
Terrain and Privacy
terrainn and privacy often go hand
in hand. The good designer works
with the terrain, not against it.
Changes in grade and elevation may
allow design of an interesting multi-
level house. By contrast, split-level
houses on level lots make little sense.
Hills and natural growth may act as
sun shields and give the family a pri-
vate life both in and out of doors.
Privacy from the outside world gen-
erally depends on five factors: window
placement and size, planting, distance
from neighbors or the street, terrain,
and obstacles. Among the latter are
fences, screens, shrubs, and the place-
ment of such structural elements as
garage, carport, and opaque walls. In
one admittedly extreme case, an archi-
tect faced a problem in which the
only available area for a private patio
faced the street and the local building
code forbade a fence. Yet the family
wanted a private area outdoors. Solu-
tion: IHe sank the patio three feet be-
low grade and planted dense, three-
foot hedges around it, thus creating a
The good designer should make
maximum use of the lot for family en-
joyment. The worst thing that can
happen is to have all houses arranged
in a uniform pattern, facing the street,
regardless of lot size or/and shape.
Quality of House
The quality of the house itself de-
pends fundamentally upon the effec-
tive arrangement of space-inside and
out. Shrubbery should not be used to
cover up a bad foundation and create
a pedestal on which the house appears
to stand. It should stand as sculpture
in space or create natural walls, which
define outdoor spaces.
The doorway should offer a digni-
fied, cvcn formal, introduction to the
family. As one experienced architect
has said, "it should make the act of
entering and departing a special act,
denoting a transition from one experi-
ence to the other."
A common fault in bad design is
the use of too many wall materials.
One type of wood contrasted with one
type of masonry may provide an effec-
tive contract. But one type of wood
and two kinds of masonry on the same
house may create a jumble of textures.
The exterior should be a visual reflec-
tion of the interior floor plan. Neglect
of this principle results in illogical
changes in exterior elevation and odd
proturbcrances. The roof line should
be simple, logical, and strong. When
you walk around the house, you
shouldn't get the impression that you
had walked behind a Hollywood set.
A house, like a piece of sculpture,
should be handsome when seen from
any vantage point. It shouldn't change
materials and plan just because it
turns the corner. It shouldn't feature
scroll-work and carpenter bric-a-brac.
The "cute" effect is usually a bad one.
Windows should be similar in pro-
portion and detailing.
Inside the house, guests should
move naturally toward the proper en-
try without confusion. An area where
adults and children can remove boots
and winter clothing is desirable. The
family should be able to enter from
the kitchen or family room and be
able to get to the bedrooms without
going through the living room. Active
living areas should be separated from
quiet sleeping areas. Preferably, the
living room should be a dead-end
space, with all traffic coming into the
space from one end. \While the trend
in bedrooms is toward smallness, the
child's bedroom should be more than
a bunkroom. It should be sizable and
pleasant enough for him to spend
happy hours in it. The husband and
wife should be able to move around
comfortably in their bedroom and use
it for reading and leisure as well as

THE NEXT FORTY YEARS
By WILLIAM T. ARNETT, AIA
President, Florida Association of Architects
This month, the Message from the
President is condensed from an il-
lustrated talk made recently before
some 200 members of the construc-
tion industry at a meeting of the
Florida West Coast Chapter of the
Producers' Council in Tampa. The
illustrations were from the film strip,
"Architecture and Your Life," pro-
duced by The American Institute of
We live in a world of change, a
world without parallel in history. It
is a world characterized by amazing
complexity, revolutionary changes in
technology, exploding population, ex-
panding social problems, and lagging
A vast job of rebuilding lies just
ahead. In the words of President Lyn-
don Johnson: "In the next forty years
we must rebuild the entire urban
United States. In the remainder of this
century, urban population will double,
city land will double, and we will-
have to build homes, highways and
facilities equal to all those built since
this country was settled."
It took from the dawn of civiliza-
tion up to the middle of the 19th
century for the world's population to
reach one billion. It took less than
100 years to add the next billion, and
we will double today's three billion
within the next 40 years.
Our rebuilding poses many prob-
lems. Says the President: It is harder
and harder to live the good life in
American cities. There is the decay
of the centers and the despoilation
of the suburbs. There is not enough
housing for our people or transporta-
tion for our traffic. Open land is
vanishing and old landmarks violated.
Worst of all, expansion is eroding
precious and time-honored values of
community with neighbors and com-
munion with nature. Our society will
never be great until our cities are
We face the biggest building boom
in the history of the world. The forces
behind it-the rapid expansion of
our population and the growing ob-
solescence of our cities-are irresist-
ible. The question is not whether we
will build. The question is rather
how well we will do it.
Architect Henry L. Wright, past
president of the AIA, says: We can
either create a new nation of high
purpose, efficiency, and beauty to out-
shine the glories of Greece and Rome,
or we can erect the most chaotic and
wasteful urban civilization which
man's capacity for folly can devise.
Only in small part does the power
to do either lie with the architect.
Although as designer, and as co-
ordinator of professions and trades,
he decides how and sometimes where
to build, he seldom decides what and
when. These decisions are made by
In the past, the clients of architec-
ture were government, the church,
and the very wealthy. The castle, the
palace, the temple, the cathedral, and
the tomb were the architectural ex-
pression of past ages and the focal
points of their communities. These
expressions were ordered by the few
and fixed in the accepted design
principles and technology of their
Today, the monarch and fixed
methods of building are gone and our
technology is limitless. Our new archi-
tecture is the architecture of democ-
racy, in which every building makes
its contribution to the owner and to
the community in the complex urban
design of our twentieth-century life.
As Henry Wright has pointed out,
the new client of this architecture is
the ordinary citizen. As owner, he is
responsible for his house; as parent
and taxpayer, for his school; as parish-
ioner, for his church; as trustee, in-
vestor, and committeeman for his
bank, factory, and office building;
and as voter and constituent, for the
shaping of his neighborhood, town,
This is an entirely new phenomen-
on in history. Although we have been
building in democratic fashion in
this country for nearly two centuries,
until now our technology has been
limited and our supply of land un-
limited. Now the two factors are re-
versed, population mounts, our urban
centers decay, suburbia spreads, and
time will not wait for leisurely adjust-
The quality of our physical environ-
ment in the years to come will de-
pend in large measure on the quality
of decision of our people. Yet with-
out understanding, which flows from
education, there can be no criteria
Whenever we build public under-
standing, the public will is aroused.
And whenever the public will is
aroused, the familiar triumvirate
forms-that creative partnership of
men of business, leaders of govern-
ment, and professionals of design.
History seems to indicate that
whenever these three work together,
everything can be accomplished.
More than twenty centuries ago a
wise and perceptive Greek by the
name of Aristotle said: Men come to-
gether in cities in order to live; they
remain together in order to live the
And one of his near contemporar-
ies said: Not houses finely roofed or
the stone of walls well-builded, nay
nor canals and dockyards, make the
city, but men able to use their op-
In the next forty years, we must
rebuild the entire urban United
States. May we use wisely the op-
portunity that is ours.
A DRAMATIC SHOWCASE for the versatility of SOLITE
Lightweight Structural Concrete
Chatham Towers was designed to provide maximum liva-
bility for dwellings in a congested area; to integrate architec-
turally with New York's Civic Center renewal program.
The solution comprises two 25-story tower buildings, with
a total of 240 living units ranging in size from studio suites
to 3-bedroom apartments. Construction is entirely of Solite
lightweight reinforced structural concrete, with exposed ex-
terior walls forming structural support for the building. This
fresh approach eliminated column projections within the
rooms, added living space, and gave a strong sculptural and
architectural expression to the building's exterior.
Further exemplifying concrete's versatility, the exposed
concrete exterior was given a random-plank, wood-grained
surface through the use of specifically designed concrete
placing forms. The striking result: a building "paneled" in
random plank concrete! Another example of Solite's respon-
siveness to architectural imagination!

With our abundance of wind driven
rain, the prevention of water penetra-
tion is a continuous problem. Some-
one once said that there is no such
thing as a small leak, and the truth
of this has been brought home to all

every architect in Florida has at one
time or another come up with a solu-
tion to some particular problem in
this field that, if made known, could
be of substantial benefit to the profes-
sion. We hope to make interchange
of such information a major part of
the Seminar. We ask that each mem-

water penetration problem that has
worked to please send a description

people want it... we provide it... and they love it,"
-says the president of I. Z. Mann &
Associates, successful developers and
builders of Florida condominiums
from coast to coast.
Since November 1963, I. Z. Mann & Associates
have completed or nearly completed six water-
front condominium complexes. They are located
from Daytona Beach across Interstate Route 4
through Maitland (Orlando), Winter Haven toq
Sarasota and back to the Atlantic coast at Bocir
Raton, and have a sales value of approximately
$7,500,000. The architects are Lopatka & McQuaig
of Winter Haven.
I. Z. Mann is convinced from experience that
modern apartment-buyers have been well-educated
to the fact that all-electric benefits are vital to
better living today-and tomorrow. And the occu-
pants of these condominiums agree that it opens
up a new world of convenience and comfort,
giving them more time for leisure and recreation.
An all-electric kitchen in every apartment is
equipped with major appliances, including a modern
electric range, an automatic defrosting refrigerator,
a food waste disposer, and many have electric dish-
washers. Hot water is supplied super-fast and
flameless-safe by electric water heaters.
Year-round -electric air conditioning gives cool
comfort in suminer and pleasant warmth in winter
- the cleanest,safest and most modern cooling/
Even the community recreation centers have fully
equipped electric kitchens, with ranges and refrig-
erators. And the laundry rooms offer the day-and-
night convenience of electric washers and dryers.
The emphasis throughout all I. Z. Mann condomin-
iums is on cleaner, cooler, safer, economical, as well
as gracious living-all with the flick of a switch.

This imposing structure-360 feet long, 125 poC
feet wide and 5% stories high-is one of two
built for the American Agricultural Chemical Company
near Pierce, in Polk County. Florida. Designed by
Lakeland Engineering Associates, Inc., for storage of
bulk fertilizer, the structures are part of a multi-million-
dollar phosphate complex.
The prestressed concrete double-T's of the inclined
roof are 8 feet wide, achieve a span of 75 feet. The
hollow.flat slabs for the flat roof are also prestressed.
Anchored to cast-in-place concrete side walls, the pre-
stressed members bear the entire roof load. No
ble interior columns are needed. To provide the
maintenance-free advantages of an all-
concrete building, end walls are concrete masonry.
Prestressed concrete, today, provides exceptional
versatility of design. With appropriate decorative treat-
ment, the type of construction shown could provide a
handsome church or dramatic civic auditorium. More
and more, engineers and builders are choosing pre-
stressed concrete for structures of every size and type.

The FAA Resolution adopted by the membership at
the 1964 convention requesting the Florida Legislature to
take cognizance of the important Construction Industry
and to establish a study committee has been introduced
A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION directing the legis-
lative council to make a study of the construction industry
and to make recommendations for coordinating the activ-
ities of the various segments of the construction industry;
authorizing the establishment of a select committee and
appointment of members; authorizing the establishment of
advisory committees; requiring a report be made to the
1967 legislature; providing for the payment of expenses
of committee members.
WHEREAS, the construction industry annually repre-
sents a two billion dollar segment of the Florida economy,
establishing it with agri-business and tourism as one of
the state's largest and most important economic influ-
WHEREAS, many other businesses and professions are
directly affected, economically and socially, by the impact
of construction on the everyday life of Florida's citizens,
WHEREAS, the physical safety, the human environ-
ment, and the real estate investment security of all resi-
dents of the state are directly affected by the quality of
the construction industry's product, and
WHEREAS, the explosive growth of the state con-
tinually imposes a threat to the orderly growth and health-
ful, physical and economic development of the state,
which development is inextricably dependent upon a well
organized and coordinated construction industry composed
of such allied groups as mortgage bankers, insurance un-
derwriters, design professions, general contractors, specialty
contractors, heavy construction contractors, materials man-
ufactors and distributors, home builders, building and

WHEREAS, since the earliest times in the state's
history, the promotion and development of agriculture and
its allied businesses, as well as the orderly development
of tourism into an important economic factor has evolved

Section 1. The Legislative Council is directed to make
a comprehensive study of the construction industry and
to recommend measures to be taken to further the best
interests of building owners and the general public through
the coordination of the activities of the various segments
of the construction industry.
Section 2. The Legislative Council is authorized and
directed to establish a select committee pursuant to sec-
tion 11.21(3), Florida Statutes, to conduct the study
authorized by this resolution; provided, however, that
the limitation on the number of noncouncil members as
specified in the above section shall not apply, and said
committee shall have the authority to appoint an advisory
committee to assist in this study as provided by section
11.285, Florida Statutes.
Section 3. The expenses of the members of the select
committee shall be paid as provided by law.

At the time of this writing SCR 150 was voted out
of the Committe on Labor and Industry and is expected
to be placed on the Senate Calendar within a few days.
HCR 692 has been referred to the Committee on Resolu-
tion and Memorials and Committee on Appropriations.
HCR 692 is expected to be voted upon favorably by both
committees within a week.
The Florida Home Builders Association have intro-
duced their legislation amending the present Section
467.09 of the Florida Statutes. The most significant
change is the elimination of any dollar limitation to one-
or-two family residences. The present wording allows home-
builders to design such residences up to $10,000.
This amendment is referred to in the Senate as SB 309
and in the House of Representatives HR 719. In the
Senate it has been voted favorably out of committee and
is awaiting Senate action. Within the next week, the
House Committee on Government Reorganization-State
will hear the bill.
Included in the FHBA legislation are two new amend-
ments which are reprinted below.
Section 2. Nothing contained in this chapter shall
be construed to repeal, amend, limit or otherwise affect
any county, metro or municipal building code or zoning
law or ordinance now or hereafter enacted which is or shall
be more restrictive with respect to the services of registered
architects in their operation and effect than the general
law regulating the practice of architecture.
Section 3. In counties or municipalities which now
or hereafter have any system of issuance of permits to build
such permits shall not be issued in any case where the
application for said permit to build discloses that the
provisions of this chapter have been violated; provided,
however, this shall not authorize the withholding of such
permit to build in any case within the exempt classes set
forth under Section 467.09 as amended in 1965.

Green coffee beans go in one end, and one-pound packages of ground coffee, blended

come out the other. That's the story of Morrison Cafeterias' new fully automated coffee
S roasting plant in Tampa which serves the entire chain's coffee needs. The fuel? Natural
Gas Naturally ... served by Peoples Gas System.
NATURAL GAS FOR MELTING ICE . IN FLORIDA? St. Petersburg's mammoth new 10,000-seat
city auditorium comes up with a new use for natural gas melting ice in the skating arena. More
conventional uses include winter heating, summer re-heat and hot water system.
SARASOTA'S LIDO BEACH SHOWPLACE EXPANDS NATGAS INSTALLATION. "We like it" says the
swank Azure Tides Hotel Court on Lido Beach in Sarasota. And to show they mean it, they've just
expanded their kitchen and installed all-new natural gas equipment. Already on the gas lines of
Southern Gas & Electric are the hotel's air conditioning, heating and hot water systems.
LOGICAL STEPS: 1, ENLARGE PLANT. 2, ADD NEW PRODUCTS. 3, CONVERT TO NATURAL GAS.
H. W. Given Co., processors of famed Ardmore Farms Orange Juice, are increasing size of their
Deland plant, adding a new by-product feed plant, fueling same with natural gas and converting their
existing 100 H.P. boiler to Natural Gas. Florida Home Gas Company is the supplier.
132 PUBLIC HOUSING UNITS IN W. PALM BEACH GOING GAS. Proof of the pudding: West Palm
Beach Housing Authority, obviously pleased with natural gas cooking, heating and water heating
installations by Florida Public Utilities in present 486 units, has specified natural gas for 132
additional rental units now under construction.
NATURAL GAS HAS MAJOR ROLE IN NEW TAMPA SKYSCRAPER. Steel for Tampa's
new 22-story Exchange Bank Building is being supplied by Florida Steel Company,
whose processing plant is a major natural gas customer of Peoples Gas System's West
OLD FOLKS AT HOME CONVERTED TO NATURAL GAS. New Smyrna Beach's largest hotel, a home
for senior citizens, has been converted to natural gas two boilers from fuel oil and the all-gas
kitchen from LP. South Florida Natural Gas also reports conversion of 80 living units for New Smyrna
Beach Housing Authority from LP to Natural Gas for cooking, hot water and space heating.
NATURAL GAS AVAILABILITY HELPED DRAW OWENS-ILLINOIS PLANT TO LAKELAND. Availability
of natural gas, and willingness of Florida Gas Company to run 3V2-mile main extension were major
factors in locating giant new Owens-Illinois Glass plant in Lakeland. Estimated use: over 5.5 million
MIAMI'S REALLY BIG ONES DEPEND ON NATURAL GAS. Three big, new
downtown skyscrapers in Miami recognize dependability of natural gas in
emergencies. 30-story Ferre Building, 10-story Three-Thirty Biscayne
Boulevard Building, and 11-story Family Finance General Offices on Brickell
Avenue all have among other uses standby generators fueled by natural
S gas to assure lighting and elevator operation in case of electric failures.

This book offers general principles and practices for more effective
performance of both present and future architectural services. It
brings together fact-filled articles from AIA Journal-articles by
architects and other experts-which discuss means for meeting the
challenges ahead in this increasingly complex field. The nature
of comprehensive architectural services is treated as well as sug-
gested methods of compensation. You arc shown how to prepare
for these services, and how they are to be performed, coordinated,
and unified. The book covers such helpful topics as AIA Stan-
dards of Professional Practice, legal status of the architect,
shopping centers, colleges and universities, cost control, building
programming, and more.

"Beaux Arts Ball"
The Palm Bcach Chapter of the
American Institute of Architects in
conjunction with the Palm Beach
area Chapter of the American Insti-
tute of Interior Designers commem-
orated Henry Flagler's birthday with
the First Annual Beaux Arts Ball on
January 22. Emily V. Obst, AIA,
served as General Chairman.
The gala event was held at the
Flagler Museum, originally the home
of Henry Flagler. The theme of the
Ball, appropriately, was "Flagler
Days" and brought out many of the
"old-fashioned folks" in the partici-
pating groups. The originality and
work put into the costumes and dec-
orations, and the location all made
the night seem to be a page out of
history. (See photos below).
Purpose of the "Beaux Arts Ball"
was to raise funds for Scholarships to
be given to persons in the study of
the allied arts. On March 11 the
Palm Beach Chapter voted to con-
tribute its portion of the proceeds,
approximately $300, to The Florida
Association of Architects Foundation,
Inc., which was recently established,
with one of its purposes to provide
scholarship funds for those studying
architecture. The members of the
Palm Beach Chapter, AIA, feel a
bit of achievement in being able to
make this money available to the
FAA Foundation, the first contribu-
tion from an AIA Chapter.

This Is Red River Rubble...
It's a hard, fine-grained
sandstone from the now-dry
bed of the Kiamichi River in
Oklahoma. In color it ranges
from a warm umber through a
variety of brownish reds to
warm, light tan . Face
textures are just as varied. Over
thousands of years rushing
water has sculptured each
individual stone with an infinite
diversity of hollows, ridges,
striations, swirls and has
worn each surface to a soft,
mellow smoothness . The
general character of this
unusual stone suggests its use
in broad, unbroken areas
wherein rugged scale and rich
color are dominating factors
of design ... Age and exposure
can do nothing to this stone
except enhance the mellow
richness of its natural beauty...
