56 HASKINS & SELLS July Massachusetts Restrictions A RECENT amendment to the Massachusetts C. P. A. law affecting Chapter 93 of the General Laws, makes it incumbent that all public accountants practicing in Massachusetts shall be registered as such and shall receive a certificate thereof. "No person not registered under section thirty-seven shall designate or hold himself out as a certified public accountant. No partnership unless all of its members are registered under section thirty-seven, and no corporation, shall use the words 'certified public accountant' in describing the partnership or corporation or the business thereof." By the terms of this amendment we are prohibited from designating ourselves as Certified Public Accountants in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts on and after August 8, 1922. Our congratulations are extended to Mr. W. E. Durham, of the Denver staff, who has been awarded the faculty prize for scholarship in the Department of Accounts, Commerce and Finance of the University of Denver. Mr. Durham was graduated from the University of Denver in the class of 1922, receiving the degree of Bachelor of Commercial Science. We note with pleasure that Messrs. B. B. Hull and F. M. Holmes, of the Denver Office, and Mr. E. L. Duncan, of the Kansas City Office, have passed the C. P. A. examinations held by the State Board of Accountancy of Colorado in May, 1922. Mr. Duncan was formerly a member of the Denver staff. Our office at Dallas has removed, under date of July 1, 1922, to the Magnolia Building, Dallas, Texas. It is with regret that we note the death of Mrs. L. C. Matthews at her home, Druid Hills, Atlanta, Georgia, on Thursday, June 29. Mrs. Matthews had recently been visiting in New York City and vicinity, and her death therefore comes as a greater shock. Mr. R. I. Bush, Jr., of our New York Broad Street staff, died suddenly on Monday, July 3. Mr. Bush was held high in esteem both as an accountant and as a man in our organization, and in his death we have a sense of distinct loss. The funeral services were conducted at his late home, 11 Grand Avenue, Arlington, New Jersey, and were attended by several members of the firm and staff. The Masonic fraternity, of which Mr. Bush Was a member, conducted a ritualistic service which was most impressive. Effective August 1, 1922, the address of our Paris Office will be 43 Rue de la Chaussée-d'Antin, Paris. It is with regret that announcement is made of the resignation of Mr. L. C. Matthews as manager of the Atlanta Office, effective June 30, 1922. We announce the appointment, effective July 1, 1922, of Mr. P. A. Gilcrest as assistant manager of the Chicago Office, in charge of the Report Department. Congratulations are extended to Mr. J. L. Henson of the Cincinnati Office, and to Mr. D. J. Hofer of the New York 39th Street Office, who have successfully passed the examinations of the American Institute of Accountants and have been admitted to associate membership of the Institute.
