Abstract:
Because I believe that concrete block construction presents a representative style of architecture, typical of that spirit of independent enterprise characteristic of American progress, and because Europe, Asia, Africa and the islands of the seaare looking to the States for light upon this industry, I characterize the conduct of our business, or, if you please the practice of our profession, as the National Game, believing that in the play of the Diamond we shall find an interesting and instructive parallel to the opportunities and responsibilities of co-workers in the domain of concrete blocks.
