OBJECTS: The objects of the Association shall be to
unite the architectural profession within the State of Flor-
ida to promote and forward the objects of The American
Institute of Architects to stimulate and encourage con-
tinual improvement within the profession, cooperate with
other professions, promote and participate in the matters
of general public welfare, and represent and act for the
architectural profession in the State; and to promote edu-
cational and public relation programs for the advance-
ment of the profession.

The regular quarterly meeting of the Executive Com-
mittee will be held at 2 P. M,, April 17, in West Palm
Beach. Mr. Seelmann has arranged for the use of the
Flotilla Club, 4850 North Dixie Highway, where the meet-
ing will convene. All members of the Association are
welcome to attend.

The Executive Committee, in its first meeting of the
year, held in Orlando, January 17, voted $1000 from the
reserve fund to be made available to the Chapters for
investigating cases of alleged malpractice by members of
the profession. This action is interpreted as the first step
by the Association to assist the local chapters in their
fight to safeguard the public against those who "practice"

architecture outside the law. It was pointed out that the
State Board of Architecture is charged with the prosecu-
tion of such cases as are brought to its attention but has
no funds to make the necessary investigation and secure
legal evidence upon which to base their case. It is the
intent of the Committee that this money be provided to
assist the Chapters in obtaining this evidence.
The Association will pay one-third of the cost and the
local Chapter two-thirds. The fund is to be administered
by the President, Treasurer and Association Vice-Prcsi.
dent from the Chapter concerned. For further informa-
tion, write your secretary.

The license of E. James Newby has been revoked for
signing drawings prepared by others and not under his
direct supervision, according to Mellen C. Greeley, secre-
tary of the state board.
Newby's license was revoked after a hearing before
the State Board of Architecture.
According to a statement by Frank W. Watson, infor-
mation chairman of the Florida South Chapter, this is
the first cancellation in the board's current drive to stamp
out the illegal and unethical practice of "sealing plans"
prepared by others.

The 32nd annual meeting of the Florida Engineering
Society will be held in Orlando April 22-24. An invita,
tion to all members of the Florida Association of Archi-
tects to attend this meeting has been extended by Milton
B. Garris, President of the Engineering Society.
Headquarters for the Convention are at the Orange
Court Hotel and early reservations are suggested,
President Bunch, in accepting the invitation from Mr.
Garris for the Association, stated "the meeting of repre-
sentatives of the two professions should mean a great deal
towards the maintenance of the pleasant and beneficial
relationship existing at the present time,"

at the Mirror Lake Junior High School, St. Petersburg.

APRIL 15, 1948
