APRIL 1938


Nota Bene: Did you notice that the Bulletin had an
extra page last month? It looks as though we were go-
ing to have plenty of news to send out every month. 40
architects sent in their dues for active membership and
the best news is that 26 of them are new members. That's
a good showing for 18 days. There still remains a
large number of '37 members to be heard from, however,
and your secretary trusts you will help him make a good
report at the Semi-Annual Meeting.

Note on your calendar that the Semi-Annual Meeting
will be held in Peabody Hall, University of Florida, in
Gainesville on Saturday, May 21, 1938. Meeting will be
called to order at 9:30 A. M.

This paragraph constitutes due notice to Franklin 0.
Adams, (June); 0. C. R. Stageberg, (July); Frank D.
Gheen, (August); Rudolph Weaver, (Sept.); Jefferson
D. Powell, (Oct.); Theodore H. Skinner, (Nov.);
Robert Fitch Smith, (Dec.); that they are listed for an
open letter on some topic or points of interest . Some
information or ideas on Advertising, Ethics, Architect-
ural Supervision, Specifications, Details, Fellowship,
Civic Activities, Free Service, etc., are suggested as a
start ... Just limit your letter to about 400 words please,
and they'll appear in the Bulletin . Suggest you write
that letter NOW and send it into the Secretary in order
that it will be available for the issue stated after your
name . You may also choose your own pet topic;

Max Worthley of Jacksonville sent this office a copy
of the Bulletin of March 10th of the Cleveland Section
of the Architects Society of-Ohio and we think the fol-
lowing is good enough to reprint here:
We shall always have Architecture-we cannot avoid
it. Whether you, as an architect, or a politician, or a
banker, or a real estate developer control building, Arch-
itecture will continue-good, bad, or indifferent. Arch-
itecture has always reflected the times,-the rise and
decay of Society..
The architect has a definite place in the picture of
current civilization. He is fully aware of it. Yet-he
has failed to take the spot which is his. He has failed
to appraise his value in the eyes of the public. In the
effort to make a living he finds himself confronted with
free plan services sponsored by building products manu-
facturers, draftsmen working for small-fees, buildings
designed, not by architects but by contractors, and his
business conducted, whether he likes it or not, by self-
appointed outsiders. To most of the public the archi-
tect is a blue-print expert hired by a contractor .
.Your answer? You have expressed it in open meeting,
among architects-we've heard your emphatic sentiments.
Has the public heard them? No. Not Generally.
The Architects Society of Ohio is out to publicise the
architect just as the medical profession, the dental pro-
fession and the legal profession have educated the public
to the value of their respective services.
Forget your squabbles-show some interest and enthus -
iasm for your local State Society group. Concerted ef-
fort alone will accomplish our aims. Lend a hand-You
will come and go-We shall always have Architecture."
*x- *x- *X-
Methinks some such thoughts have run through the
heads of all of us at one time or another. Gist: The en-
tire success of any Association activity depends upon
fulfillment of the request contained in the last paragraph.
Read it again.

Mellen C. Greeley, our ambassador to the first state-
wide meeting of the Alabama Association of Registered
Architects, reports an enthusiastic gathering on Febru-
ary 23rd in Montgomery. Thirty-five architects present
of a total registration of eighty . Meeting conducted
in a most earnest and thorough manner by President
Moreland Griffith Smith .. .Mel had the floor for over
an hour talking about and answering questions regarding
Florida Association, the State Hotel Commission, regis-
tration, etc. .. They were particularly interested in
Florida's Hotel Commission because, as we all know, it
is unique in that probably no other state has a similar
organization . They gave Ambassador Greeley an op-
portunity to see their city and Montgomery's new Negro
Low Cost Housing Project . "A representative of one
of the Montgomery papers made a splendid talk on the
value of advertising and gave an outline for an advertis-
ing campaign by architects. In this connection, it is in-
teresting to note that reports of the Association meeting
appeared on the front pages of two local newspapers in
three issues and I was told that this is the first time the
architects have "made the front page". It seems to sub-
stantiate the experience of the Florida Association that
by organization you can command attention."

Thanks, and a pat on the back to Mellen Greeley for
the above, and the same to Rudolph Weaver, Director
School of Architecture and Allied Arts, University of
Florida, Gainesville, who journeyed to Fort Lauderdale
the week of March 12th to give an interested group of
architects in District 12 a serious talk about the Asso-
ciation and its needs. Good work, Director Stewart.

Kenneth Miller, Director District 6, reports the most
enthusiastic meeting ever held in that district, on March
3rd. Twelve out of fifteen architects present. Best of
all, members requested another meeting for March 17th,
for they actually voiced out loud in meeting topics here-
tofore discussed only between individuals, thus clearing
up misunderstandings and eliminating hard feelings that
might have existed . That's progress, and exactly what
District meetings are supposed to do, in part.-

President Pancoast desires that District Directors be
notified that it is required of them to have at least two
meetings of the architects in their district every six
months. Get those two meetings started, gentlemen, and
bring your report to the Semi-Annual meeting in Gaines-
ville, May twenty-first. THIS IS IMPORTANT.

Thought for this month: Some things are like a loco-
motive doing eighty miles an hour. You may flag it down,
but it isn't safe to stand in the middle of the track while
you try it.

Previous list-42. This list-40. Total 82.

Thought 14umber Two: It is possible to learn a lot of
choice words in the Marines, but you'll also learn that
you can't expect to hit what you aim at unless you keep
at least one eye open.
