Born, April 24, 1865— Died, August 13, 1932 
As we go to press news reaches us of the death of Mr. Wearn, a life- 
long resident of Charlotte and a North Carolina pharmacist since 1884. 
He was president of the N. C. P. A., 1891-92, and a member of the Board 
of Pharmacy, 1893-1903. He practiced his profession as a retail druggist 
for many years but for the past thirty-eight years has been identified with 
the wholesale firm of Burwell and Dunn.

In addition to chemical elements and vita- 
mins, recent advances have shown that the 
animal body requires for its satisfactory 
development and functioning a number of 
other substances which are generally des- 
ignated as Gland or Glandular Products. 
These are obtained from glands of Internal 
Secretion, or the Endocrine Glands or the 
Ductless Glands. The secretions, or possi- 
bly the active principles of these secretions, 
are called Hormones. Examples, no doubt, 
will be of value in clarifying these expres- 
sions: (a) the Kidneys are glands or or- 
gans of excretion; they eliminate waste 
products; (b) there are, however, glands or 
organs whose primary purpose is the produc- 
tion of substances that are not waste prod- 
ucts but products of great value in diges- 
tion or processes carried on in the body; 
these products are called Secretions. The 
salivary glands are organs of secretion since 
they produce the saliva which contains the 
important substance, Ptyalin, valuable as an 

agent which brings about the first changes 
of our foods so that we may utilize them in 
body processes, i.e. the beginning of diges- 
tion; (c) another type of a gland of secre- 
tion is represented by the Thyroid Glands 
which produce by internal secretion directly 
into the blood stream a substance whose 
chief constituent is Thyroxin, a substance 
containing Iodine which when present in 
unbalanced amounts produces goitres of vari- 
ous types along with their characteristic re- 
actions on the body; (d) the liver is an un- 
usual organ since recent discoveries seem 
to indicate that it may serve as an organ 
with all three functions: Excretion, Secre- 
tion and Internal Secretion. 

Therefore, within the body we have glands 
or organs of three types: (1) those of 
Excretion, with which we are not concerned 
in this discussion, (2) those of Secretion, 
which produce substances called enzymes or 
digestives — necessary for the completion of 
the process of digestion and (3) those of 
Internal Secretion which secrete substances 
into the blood stream and which play by the 
normal and abnormal functions such as im- 
portant part in what is called the physical 
make-up and personality of man. The in- 
ternal secretions represent one of the newest 
and most fascinating fields of medical en- 

The enzymes or digestive ferments are the 
substances produced by the organs of diges- 
tion and have been known for a long time. 
These substances are very complex organic 
bodies which have the power of breaking 
down food stuffs in the presence of acid, 
alkali and water into simpler compounds so 
that they can be readily utilized. These 
include pepsin and rennin from the stomach, 
pancreatin from the pancreas, and others. 

Tims, the slow but powerful development 
of medicinals from the groping of antiquity 
has culminated, within the past century, in 
the spectacular uses of biologicals, of glan- 
dular products, of digestive ferments, of the 
pollen extracts, of the use of light and its 
components, of the X-ray and of radium. 
Many of these great discoveries, being very 
recent, the incentive toward newer enlight- 
enments of medical endeavor is the appar- 
ent progress of the future. 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


By Parke C. Stratford 
of Greensboro 

I have been asked to prepare this paper 
to read to you gentlemen by my good friend, 
Roger McDuffie, and I don't know but T 
think he has an idea that I associate the 
Mezzanine Prescription Department with the 
drug Mezereum, which Remington says oc- 
curs in long, thin, flexible tough bands and 
active principle Daphnin. Now, while I 
might be long, I am no longer thin, and 
while I may be flexible, I am not tough, and 
I fear he thinks I am Daphnin ("dappy") 
on the subject. 

Now, gentlemen there often arises a. time 
in the arranging of a new or an established 
drug store when the question comes up of 
whether a prescription department should 
he on the main floor or on the mezzanine. 
Many different thoughts and reasons are 
angled with: (1) Its convenience to the 
doctors and patrons; (2) Which will be ex- 
pedient and proper for the particular store 
concerned; (3) The welfare of the pharma- 
cist on duty; and (4) How friend public 
feels towards losing or holding contact with 
the pharmacist handling his particular pre- 
scription or order. There are, of course, 
other very good reasons and arguments to 
consider and rehearse before making the 
decision, but the four main things to con- 
sider, as I see it, are the four that may be 
considered as the most vital to the store 

Now let us put ourselves in the place of 
a druggist who is considering the re-ar- 
ranging of his main floor and the addition 
of the mezzanine prescription department. 
The main floor is fairly well crowded as it 
is and an additional department is contem- 
plated that would necessarily have to be 
placed on the main floor. The question 
arises, where or how in the world can we 
so arrange our main floor as to permit this 
additional department which seems to have 
the possibility of a good volume, and addi- 
tional profit? Or, along with this, consider 
a, store carrying a large stock which, because 
of increasing business, demands more room. 

The owner or manager doesn't dare think of 
changing the cigar stand, the soda fountain, 
the toilet goods department, or the bulk of 
his patent or sundry departments so his 
mind turns very quickly to the prescrip- 
tion department as the only department 
that could possibly be moved. Now the 
thought occurs, is the ceiling sufficiently 
high to allow this, or will it be necessary to 
go to the second floor of the building to get 
this needed space? Then the thought of 
additional rent pops up and this is really 
a stumbling block for few if any store 
owners or managers are inviting additional 
expenses. Therefore, it is decided upon that 
space will have to be created in the space 
now occupied and that so worked out that 
the store will not have the appearance of a 
"junk-shop" or the look of being over- 
crowded to the patron when entering, for 
the patron's eye naturally points to the 
back of .the store upon entering and his first 
impression is apt to be the lasting one. 

Now let us think as one who is planning 
a new store. This mezzanine prescription 
department has never been tried but it seems 
to be the correct and modern thing because 
Tom Jones and Henry Smith and others 
have it and from all outside appearances it 
seems to be successful. Certainly we don't 
want our competitors to be even that one 
jump ahead of us. The owner of the build- 
ing we are to enter is willing to put the 
space in shape just as we want it at no cost 
to us now, but, if later we want the change 
made we will have, to pay for it and suffer 
the confusion of remodeling, etc. Then too, 
isn 't it modern and a step or two ahead to 
have the prescription department separate 
and apart from the balance of our store. 
Won 't it give us an advertising advantage 
or at least won 't it relieve us from being 
the "goat" if Tom Jones or Henry Smith 
should capitalize on the fact that their stores 
have prescription departments Avhere the 
man or men on duty handles or handle the 

* (This paper was presented at the 1932 meet- 
ing of the N. C. P. A.) 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

work -without interruptions? Then, too, if 
we should ever need this space why we have 
it and it gives us so many more square feet 
of floor space. 

Now gentlemen, I have tried to picture 
to you in a more or less brief way some of 
the thoughts that occur to the established 
store owner or manager of the new pros- 
pective owner or manager, and while there 
are many other points that might be brought 
out I believe the vital points have been dealt 

Let's pick up the four points and deal 
with the advantages and disadvantages as 
I personally see them. 

1. Doctors as a whole like the conven- 
ience of visiting the prescription depart- 
ment and they are more or less considered 
privileged characters behind the prescrip- 
tion counter. Quite often they like to brush 
up a bit on names of medicines, doses, and 
the like, and they certainly like to rub el- 
bows with the druggists and talk things over 
generally. It does not hurt to encourage 
this friendly atmosphere. This is easier 
for the doctors when the prescription de- 
partment is on the main floor. It is not 
an easy thing to get them to climb even a 
few steps to reach a mezzanine prescription 
department and they are apt to feel that 
they are somewhat alienated from the most 
important part of the drug store. The ad- 
vantage here is to keep in regular contact 
with the doctors; the disadvantage is the 
possibility of losing this contact and having 
him think that the mezzanine is too much 
out of the way as well as establishing in his 
mind the thought, "Oh, what's the use; I 
don't like to go up those steps; it takes too 
long, etc. ' ' 

The patron feels that he likes to know 
that the store really does care something 
about his ills and troubles, and though he 
dislikes medicine at its best, he feels that 
it should always be within his reach. More- 
over, he actually thinks he gets it quicker 
when the prescription is being handled on 
the main floor where he can hear an occa- 
sional rub of the pestle in the mortar or 
the stirring rod in the graduate. The main 
floor prescription department has every ad- 
vantage so far as the patron is concerned. 

2. Of course, all stores are not alike as to 
arrangement and lay-out generally. "What 
might be expedient for one might not neces- 
sarily be expedient for another, but it would 
seem to be a great advantage for a store 
filling two hundred or more prescriptions a 
day to have the mezzanine prescription de- 
partment away from the main floor unless 
the floor space be such that plenty of room 
can be given to this department. But as a 
rule, where there are two hundred or more 
prescriptions being filled daily it is not al- 
ways easy to keep things looking quite as 
ship-shape as they ought to be, and for this 
reason it would be advantageous to have in 
the prescription department a separate place 
such as a mezzanine. A store doing this 
prescription work does not have to worry 
so much about the proper place for the 
prescription department, but about how 
quickly the work can be turned out. 

3. The welfare of the pharmacist on duty 
should certainly be considered because the 
hours are long, the work is confining, and 
upon him a great deal depends. The ad- 
vantages of main floor prescription de- 
partments for the pharmacist ou duty are 
many. As a rule there is better air to 
breathe, better light to work under, better 
ventilation, and consequently his general dis- 
position toward his work is better. The dis- 
advantages are, he finds that on the main 
floor he is often interrupted from very im- 
portant work and he is subject to occasional 
conversations with the public which are apt 
to make him weigh his chemicals twice to 
be sure. Such happenings as these and 
others keep his mind in a turmoil and he 
can't always be civil with those around him. 
A pharmacist, should always be happy in so 
far as the patron is concerned even if he 
does happen to have the toothache. If he 
cannot be this way the mezzanine prescrip- 
tion department is to his and the store 's 
advantage every time. 

4. Now' our friend the public is a very 
funny fellow and one day he is all asunder 
about politics, the next day about the 
weather, the next day about family affairs, 
the next day about his business, and "so on. 
Each day there is something different.

One Thing and Another 

By J. G. Beabd 

The Trend of the Times 

In the past three weeks, and I am speak- 
ing of the period of late July and early 
August, I have asked exactly thirty people 
what the outlook is for the next several 
months. I have talked mostly to traveling 
men and druggists of this State. Only two 
of the number said that business is worse 
but most of them see little change for the 
better. The majority felt, however, that we 
have finally reached the bottom of the hole 
and that from now on there should be a slow 
improvement that ought to show itself with 
some definiteness this fall. Stocks at this 
writing are going up fast; live stock is 
bringing better prices ; steel production is 
increasing ; car loadings are somewhat 
greater; comparatively few banks are fail- 
ing ; electric power production is going up ; 
and most important of all, there is a definite 
improvement in public confidence in the gen- 
eral outlook. A well known traveling man 
said to me confidentially: "I have been 
noticing that those druggists who were con- 
sidered good business men before the depres- 
sion are still discounting their bills. ' ' 
Whether he is right or wrong it is nonethe- 
less true that these are times that certainly 
call for a good business head on the part of 
men who are depending on public buying for 
a living. My heart bleeds for some of the 
druggists I know in the fight they have had 
for existence, and when I hear that an old 
friend of mine or a former pupil who has 
worked hard, played square, and given every- 
thing he had to his business has been com- 
pelled to go into bankruptcy I cannot keep 
lumps from rising in my throat and mist 
away from my eyes. 

A Danger to Life and Health 

In a test case the Supreme Court of Xew 
Jersey has ruled that Essence of Peppermint 
and Sweet Spirit of Nitre are medicines 

which can be sold only under the super- 
vision of a registered pharmacist. The 
Board of Pharmacy of that State prosecuted 
the case and by its victory established a 
precedent that should be valuable in other 
states. In North Carolina there are any 
number of general stores that sell not only 
the two items named above but many others 
that are medicines in a stricter sense — medi- 
cines that should be sold only by persons 
competent to handle medicines. We would 
like to see our Board make a test case of 
one such store and cite the New Jersey 
ruling. If the same verdict is returned then 
not only will drug stores in this State get 
business that belongs legitimately to them 
but what is more important the general 
public will be protected from an unsafe 
commerce in drugs such as must result when 
storekeepers without the slightest knowl- 
edge, of medicines are permitted to sell 
tincture of iodine, calomel, aspirin, and 
eight or ten other drugs. If the wrong 
thing is sold death may result, if an inferior 
product is sold a needed action may fail 
to take place; and in any case there is a 
constant threat that is all the more danger- 
ous because usually there is no way after- 
wards to fix the blame where it belongs. 
A disease may terminate fatally when life 
could have been saved or prolonged if de- 
pendence had not been placed where no de- 
pendence should be placed: on drugs of un- 
certain composition sold by persons with no 
real knowledge of what drugs are or should 

Should we not profit from the New Jersey 

Makes Assignment 

The News and Observer of August 2 car- 
ries an item to the effect that Mr. E. L. 
Tarkenton, of Wilson, had assigned his store, 
Tarkenton 's Pharmacy, for the benefit of his 
(Continued on Page 16) 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


The Association has in every county of 
the state a chairman to direct all legisla- 
tive work in that county. These men can 
perform a wonderful service, especially this 
year, IF (a) they work intensively and 
intelligently; (b) secure the cooperation of 
the other druggists in the county; and (c) 
start their working campaign not only be- 
fore the Legislature meets but before the 
fall elections are held. 

At this writing the Association has no 
measures it will want introduced into the 
General Assembly. Some may develop later 
but there are none agreed upon now. Its 
main efforts will be directed (1) to keep 
the Pharmacy Act — which every druggist 
should read — as it now is, fighting any move- 
ment to lower its standards; (2) to use 
every legitimate effort to reduce or annul 
existing taxes that bear unfairly or inequit- 
ably upon the practice of pharmacy; (3) to 
resist strenuously the imposition of any new 
taxes — sales or otherwise — upon an already 
overtaxed group; and (4) to insist upon 
economy in government in order that state 
and county budgets may more nearly bal- 
ance. There is nothing secret and there is 
nothing objectionable about these aims and 
there is going to be no lukewarmness in the 
way the organization will work towards 

Every county chairman should get in 
touch with the other druggists in his group, 
either by letter or preferably at a called 
meeting, and ask them to see their legisla- 
tive candidates at once in order that they 
may know how the candidates stand on 
questions affecting the drug business before 
the elections take place. After these con- 
ferences are held reports should be made to 
the county chairman who should in turn 
pass on the information to Attorney F. O. 
Bowman in order that the Association may 
know what representatives it can count upon 
and which ones are likely to be unfriendly 
to retail pharmacy. 

Druggists could be powerful politically if 
they would be. They are in constant touch 
with voters and their stores are centers of 
community life. If a majority of these 
druggists determine that they are going to 
help the Association in its efforts to help 

them they will be surprised to find that the 
members of the next General Assembly will 
know about and hence will be in sympathy 
with the difficulties and problems that face 
North Carolina pharmacists. Too often — in 
fact usually — druggists wait until the Legis- 
lature meets before they wake up to the fact 
that law-making and revenue-raising consti- 
tute a biennial business that ought to be 
planned for ahead of time. Now is that 
time! Every week's delay is hurtful. Can- 
didates want to be elected. They want elec- 
toral help. They are in a. receptive frame 
of mind and will listen sympathetically to 
deserving matters. We should gain their 
attention before they become too busy to 
listen to us. 

Nothing said in the foregoing paragraphs 
is intended to mean that druggists should 
work in any selfish way that is against the 
public interests or that they should use 
threats or any methods that are not above- 
board. They would not be guilty of such a 
practice even though this article urged it 
which it does not. What is meant boils down 
to this : druggists have a common interest 
in legislative happenings and like all other 
interests affected by the Legislature they 
should seek every legitimate form of group 
protection. This is best accomplished by 
an educational campaign entered into by 
druggists all over the state and directed at 
every candidate who offers for the next 
General Assembly. 

County chairmen are expected to direct 
this work and upon their efforts will depend 
in a large measure the happenings at Raleigh 
this winter in so far as the drug business is 
concerned. This being true the Association 
pleads with these chairmen to feel that their 
duties are vital ; that the neglect of even 
one committeeman weakens the cause; and 
that whatever they do for the good of all 
results in good to themselves. The Associa- 
tion pleads likewise with druggists who are 
not county chairmen to pledge their support 
to the men who will attempt the directing 
jobs in the several counties and work with 
them to the end that the problems of the 
drug business in North Carolina will be 
understood in the next Legislature.

This Person Did Not Buy Drugs 
in a Drug Store 

A news item in the paper July 25 re- 
ported a suit for $25,000 entered against 
the Davis Mfg. Co., of Knoxville, by Charles 
and Myrtle Davis who charged that ' ' neg- 
ligence, carelessness and recklessness of the 
company led to the injury of Myrtle Davis ' 
health by wrongly labeling a bottle of medi- 
cine. " The plaintiffs charge that in April 
of this year a bottle of medicine labeled 
castor oil was bought of J. M. Edgerton, of 
Goldsboro, and that Mrs. Davis on advice of 
her physician to take a dose of castor oil, 
took a dose from the bottle bought from 
Edgerton and that the bottle contained tur- 
pentine, as a result of which she has a 

There is no druggist or drug store in 
Goldsboro carrying the name J. M. Edgerton 
and so we presume that Edgerton runs some 
sort of general store and ignorantly sells 
such drugs as castor oil. No registered phar- 
macist would sell turpentine for castor oil 
no matter what label was on the bottle for 
the simple reason that one is a light, thin 
liquid of the consistence of water and the 
other is thick and, as the name indicates, 
oily. A general merchant, however, sells 
according to the label. We, of course, feel 
sorry for the Davises, husband and wife, but 
people who are so foolish as to buy drugs 
in any place except a drug store, especially 
when there is a drug store conveniently near 
(as is the case in Goldsboro), are gambling 
with death and need not be surprised over 
%vhat happens. This incident points a moral 
and tells a tale that we wish every drug 
purchaser could learn about. 

He Opposes the Assistant Pharmacist 

(A short time ago we received an un- 
signed article with the request that it be 
published because it involved a matter of 
importance. Our first impulse was to dis- 
regard the request on the theory that anony- 
mous articles or letters should be ignored. 
A note, however, accompanied the article 
that seemed to indicate the author was writ- 
ing in good spirit and so we are going to 

comply with his wishes and print what he 
says. — Ed.) 

"There are a number of good registered 
druggists in North Carolina who on account 
of the present conditions have no positions 
and there will be an even greater number 
if the present condition continues much 
longer. The only way that these druggists 
and those w"ho are employed can ever hope 
to increase their earnings is by raising the 
profession to a higher standard. There has 
been some little criticism about increasing 
the time for a pharmacy education from 
three to four years and there is some ground 
for this criticism, especially from a num- 
ber of those who got their license before 
the standard was raised. Perhaps though 
these men have never stopped to think what 
pharmacy might be and what it will be when 
standards get uniform — if they ever do. I 
am gradually coming to my point. 

"What per cent, of the druggists who 
have been practicing for several years would 
not be at a loss to make their own fluid- 
extracts and tinctures, as well as many 
other preparations that druggists should be 
thoroughly capable of making, some of which 
could be made at a great saving? 

"The pharmacy law of this State requires 
that every drug store must have a registered 
man in it at, all times. In Tennessee I am 
informed that this kind of law is enforced 
to the fullest extent. A friend told me that 
on one occasion a pharmacy inspector there 
called on a store operated by a druggist 
who lived upstairs over the store and who 
was upstairs when the inspector called. He 
was fined $25. Tennessee has a lower stand- 
ard than Ave have but they sure do enforce 
the pharmacy laws they do have. I believe 
that this kind of thing would be more closely 
looked after by our inspector were it not for 
the fact that he knows that it would work 
a, hardship on the owners of stores which 
have a small prescription business, especially 
during these times. But on the other hand 
if the law were enforced druggists would 
discontinue filling prescriptions at giveaway 
prices and the public would more quickly 
look upon pharmacy as a profession. Let's 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


hope that the time will soon come when all 
of the towns of any size can support drug 
stores with two registered men. 

' ' Here is the rub that will come in when 
two licenses are required in the large stores 
and it is up to druggists to say what they 
will do about it. The present law provides 
for an assistant license. This license is is- 
sued to practical clerks who can pass the 
Board. Under our law these men can oper- 
ate a drug store during the temporary ab- 
sence of the full registered man. In the 
last two years there have been more of these 
| assistant licenses issued than had been al- 
together before, and in the writer's opinion 
the number will rapidly increase each time 
the Board meets. Each one of these men 
can take the position of a registered man in 
a store requiring two druggists. We have 
thirty some odd now. How many do we 
want? The ones that we have are here— 
we cannot get rid of them — but we can pre- 
vent the oncoming numbers. So let's take 
the ones we have into the fold and let each 
druggist in the state make up his mind now 
to have a bill introduced into the next Legis- 
lature doing away with the assistant's li- 
cense so that we can have a requirement 
that is equal all the way round. This will 
eliminate the men that are coming along 
with a low requirement for registration 
from taking the positions that belong to 
the pharmacist who is now out of a posi- 
tion. Let's get the standard uniform and 
let's put the profession on a higher basis 
in the eyes of the public — our customers. 

' ' Several states have already passed laws 
doing away with the Assistant pharmacist. 
"Why not us ? " 

The Ohio Mutual is a Sound Company 

It lias come to our attention that some 
party or parties have been saying in one 
way or another that the fire insurance com- 
pany which Attorney Bowman represents 
for the Association is not a safe company 
and that it does not always adjust and pay 
for its losses promptly. These reports were 
either founded on fact, in which case the 
Association and its members should know 
the facts and cancel all insurance in the 
company, or the reports were idle rumors 

calculated to do harm, in which case they 
should be denied as a matter of fairness to 
the company. Accordingly the Secretary of 
the Association wrote Insurance Commis- 
sioner Dan C. Boney and asked him for a 
frank statement as to his opinion of the 
rumors and reports. Mr. Boney replied as

Re: Ohio Mutual Insurance Co., 
Coshocton, Ohio 

Dear Sir : 

The above mentioned company as of 
December 31st last had $175,064.32 surplus 
and according to all of the information we 
have are in first class shape. I wish it were 
possible to put an end to this kind of thing 
(reports, rumors, etc.) because I believe that 
it is a thing that is prolonging our present 
business depression. It is causing the people 
to lose faith in all of their institutions re- 
gardless of their soundness. 

If the parties referred to have any infor- 
mation which is really worthwhile I would 
appreciate their sending it to me but until 
I receive definite proof I cannot believe that 
there is anything to these statements. 
Very truly yours, 
(Signed) DAX C. BOXEY, 
Insurance Commissioner. 

Until the Association has something more 
definite to go on it will continue to endorse 
and its attorney will continue to sell policies 
written by the Ohio Mutual Insurance Co.

Cobb's Cartoons 

On another page is a good cartoon drawn 
by Jim Cobb, of Brevard. He shows Uncle 
Sam, "The Great Tax-idermist, " skinning 
alive the great number of druggists in his 
family and stuffing them with something 
(ingredients not shown) to make them look 
alive even though they may be dead from 
the toxic effects of multiple taxation. If 
you have had the hide taken off of you by 
Federal taxes, look up the cartoon and grin 
even though it is a twisted sort of grin. By 
the way, why not call the new levy ' ' exer- 
cise taxes ' ' instead of ' ' excise ' ' because it 
takes so much effort to collect or pass on, 
record, and pay the blamed things. 

Charlotte Wants Convention 

Mr. Jim Stowe writes the Editor that the 
idea has got around among some druggists 
that Charlotte did not want the next con- 
vention of the Association as voted by the 
delegates at High Point. He asks us to 
deny this and assure the members of the 
organization that not only does Charlotte 
Avant them but that it will prove the fact 
when they get there next June. Knowing 
Charlotte's hospitality as we do, we had 
never entertained a doubt of the welcome to 
be expected but we are glad to pass on this 
assurance from Mr. Stowe. The last meeting 
there was highly successful; this one will be 
also we feel sure. 

Gastonia Druggists on Cash Basis 

Every drug store in Gastonia went on a 
cash basis July 5. The Kennedy Drug Co. 
sent the following letter to all of its cus- 
tomers : 

To Our Trade: 

' ' We, with the other drug stores of 
Gastonia, have agreed to operate on a 
strictly cash basis beginning July 5. 

' ' Selling for cash will enable us to 
absorb the manufacturers' tax recently 
imposed on many articles sold by drug 
stores, and will in the long run save 
money for our customers. 

"We wish to express to you, on© of 
our good customers, our appreciation 
for your patronage in the past, and we 
hope that you will continue to co-oper- 
ate with us under this necessary new 

Very truly yours, 
Kennedy Drug Company. ' ' 

Two weeks after the above letter was sent 
out Mr. Ed Adams, the proprietor, writes 
us that the new plan "is working like a 
charm. ' ' He says further that "It is a 
good feeling to return from dinner and meet 
people coming out of the store with pack- 
ages in their hands because I know that the 
goods have been paid for. ' ' 

Did you read the article by Mr. E. F. 
Rimmer, of Charlotte, that appeared in the 
August Journal explaining how he had oper- 
ated on a cash basis successfully for sev- 
eral years? Some druggists say that they 
can't go on a cash basis. Others write us 
that they not only can but have already 
done so. In these particular times when 
dollars are scarcer and hence more precious 
than within the memory of all save old 
people it becomes necessary for most cus- 
tomers to buy where goods are cheapest. 
If stores are to get this business they must 
offer a price appeal. Selling for cash, losing 
no money on charge accounts, discounting 
bills, and buying frequently and in small 
quantities to get fast turnover are proved 
ways of meeting cut-price competition from 
department and chain stores. 

We will be glad to report all drug stores 
that decide to go on a cash basis, so please 
let us know who you are. 

Goode Should Be Made President 
of the N. A. R. D. 

We nominate for the presidency of the 
National Association of Retail Druggists 
Mr. John A. Goode, successful pharmacist 
of Asheville. We do so for the following 
reasons : 

1. As well as any one we know Mr. 
Goode is familiar with N. A. B. D. aims and 
policies having been a member of the exec- 
utive committee for several years, a regu- 
lar attendant at the conventions, and a seri- 
ous student of the Association's affairs. 

2. He is well equipped mentally and phys- 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


ically for the responsible and exacting 
work demanded of a chief executive. 

3. He has vision and initiative that are 
tempered with sufficient moderation to keep 
him from being a radical. 

4. He is a thorough thinker, a hard worker, 
and he applies himself conscientiously to 
every duty that he assumes. 

5. The N. C. Phar. Assoc, in the form of 
a resolution unanimously adopted, respect- 
fully asked the next convention of the N. 
A. R. D. to select Mr. Goode as president. 
The North Carolina Association has been 
affiliated for a great many years, regularly 
pays clues, is deeply interested in the nation- 

'• al organization, and its request is entitled 
to serious consideration. 

G. Mr. Goode is from a section that the 
N. A. B. D. has never recognized with a presi- 
dency but a section that would give the 
Association greater support if the organiza- 
tion would but. court such support with real 
recognition. If the N. A. R. D. is to be 
national in scope as well as in name it 
should select its presidents with the nation 
in mind and not confine its favors to those 
sections which have a large membership. 
The N. A. R. D. can stand back, as it always 
has in the past, and say "We will recognize 
the Southeast when it gives us a large mem- 
bership, ' ' or it can say instead "We want 
a large membership in the Southeast and 
therefore we will show our interest by giving 
the section a real token of this interest. ' ' 
The first plan has not worked. Why not 
give the second a trial? 

7. If our information is correct it would 
be a wise move on the part of the N. A. E. 
D. to honor Mr. G'oode with the presidency. 
If this is not done this year then real dis- 
sension may result that would be very hurt- 
ful to the growth and influence of the or- 
ganization. We have heard on what seems 
good authority that a large number of mem- 
bers resent the refusal of "the Machine" to 
let Mr. Goode become president. This may 
or may not be true but if it is false then 
how can the action that several state asso- 
ciations have taken this year be explained? 
Speaking just for ourselves, we would never 
want John Goode to be made president if a 
responsible group in the Association feels 

that he is not qualified for the office, but if 
he is being held back, as is charged, be- 
cause at one time or another he has had the 
courage to ' ' buck the Machine, ' ' then we 
would like to fight for his election believing 
as we do that he would make one of the best 
presidents that the X. A. R. D. has ever 

8. Finally, among our reasons for the 
nomination, is the fact that we believe it 
would be good politics if the so-called "Old 
Guard" would swallow its prejudices and 
let a man that a great many members want 
take over the reins for one year so that he 
could show or fail to show the qualities of 
leadership that his advocates claim for him. 

Send in Difficult Prescriptions 

The letter below, written by Professor Ira 
W. Eose, explains itself and we commend it 
to the attention of our readers. 
To the Pharmacists of the State: 
Sodii Bicarb. oz. i 

Magnesii Sulph. oz. iss 

Aquae Menthae Piperitae oz. ii 

Elixir Lact. Pepsin qs oz. vi 

Just recently the above prescription was 
sent to the University of N. C. School of 
Pharmacy with the following comment: "I 
found this prescription to be incompatible. 
When mixed in any order there was a great 
deal of effervescence, and after adding the 
Elixir Lact. Pepsin the Magnesium Sul- 
phate was throAvn out of solution. If you 
can solve this in any way I shall appreciate 
it if you will let me know. ' ' 

This was replied to stating that the pre- 
cipitate was probably Sodium Bicarbonate 
mostly since it is called for in quantity 
greater than will dissolve in the amount of 
liquids used. The effervescence is between 
the Sodium Bicarbonate and both the Mag- 
nesium Sulphate and Elixir Lact. Pepsin. 
The Elixir is acid. Magnesium Sulphate is 
neutral but will effervesce with Sodium Bi- 
carbonate, the two salts making a clear 
solution within solubility limits. (It is in- 
teresting to note that normal Sodium Car- 
bonate causes precipitation in solution with 
Magnesium Sulphate — basic Magnesium Car- 
bonate) .

joyed delightful vacations: Mr. C. P. 
Mitchell and family, of Burlington, spent 
two weeks at Buckroe Beach; Mr. Philip D. 
Gattis and family were at Nags Head for 
two weeks ; Messrs. J. E. Johnson, of Lum- 
berton, and Fred Dees, of Burgaw ; had a 
delightful fishing trip on ' ' New River ; ' ' 
Mr. Bryan Duffy, of New Bern, was at the 
Duffy Cottage at Morehead City for two 
weeks; Mr. Thornton Hood, of Kinston, 
spent his vacation in western N. C. ; Mr. 
W. Y. Whitley, of Fremont, reports he 
caught the largest fish ever caught at More- 
head City a few weeks ago — unfortunately 
the fish got away; Mr. W. F. Rogers and 
family, of Durham, spent the last two weeks 
in August at Wrightsville Beach ; and Mr. 
and Mrs. A. C. Cecil, of High Point have 
just returned from a vacation and fishing 
trip to "Paradise Point," where Mr. Cecil 
has a fishing camp. 

It is reported that the Citizens Drug Co., 
of Zebulon, has been placed in the hands of 
a receiver. 

In a recent issue of the Chapel Hill 
Weekly we find this item: 

Members of the force of the Eubanks 
drug store are visiting New York these 
days. Paul Eubanks returned the other 
day, and gave such a glowing report on the 
metropolis that his fellow-worker, John Hol- 
shauser, set out northward at once. 

Mr. D. H. Hood, a long-time druggist of 
Dunn, was honored recently when one hun- 
dred members of the bible class he has 

taught for thirty-five years tendered him a 
barbecue outside of Dunn to celebrate his 
sixty-second birthday which occurred Aug. 
3. The Journal congratulates Mr. Hood on 
his faithful service as Sunday School teacher 
and on the completion of sixty-two years of 
graceful living. 

A correspondent tells us that the Ashe- 
boro Street Pharmacy, in Greensboro, Mr. F. 
S. Petrea owner, has gone into receivership. 
No other details were given. 

Another drug firm in Greensboro, accord- 
ing to the same reporter is also in receiver- 
ship. This is the West Market Street Phar- 

Mr. John Wooten, who has been with 
Futrelle's in Wilmington, has just accepted 
a position with Eckerds in Durham. 

Mr. Henry Marston, salesman for the 
Upjohn Co., is temporarily traveling in the 
territory surrounding his home town, Kin- 
ston. Mr. Alden Hobbs, with the same 
firm, is traveling over the northeastern part 
of the state with Rocky Mount as head- 

Mr. I. T. Reamer, pharmacist at the Duke 
Hospital, in Durham, has been spending his 
vacation at his former home in Baltimore. 

We have just learned that Mr. J. S. Fer- 
guson, of Raleigh, was married recently. 
We have no details but we extend him our 
sincerest congratulations. 

For Sale 

A complete set of drug store fixtures and 
soda fountain. Nothing else required to 
open a first class drug store but a stock of 
goods. Address 0. R. Black, Bessemer City, 
N. C— Adv. 

Mr. A. P. Carswell, of Winston-Salem, has 
reopened the Boone Drug Co., of Durham, 
under the name Carolina Pharmacy. 

We are delighted to hear that Mr. J. C. 
Hood, of Kinston, is back on the job again 
after two weeks of confinement that re- 
sulted from a serious automobile accident 
in which he sustained two broken ribs. A 
tire blew out while he was rounding a curve 
near Smithfield and this caused him to lose 
control of the car and it crashed into a 
telephone pole. 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

Mr. Jack Temple, of Kinston, is reported 
to be making good progress towards re- 
covery in the government hospital at Ports- 
mouth, Va., where he has been for some 
weeks. We are sorry to learn of Mr. Temple 'a 
illness and wish for him a speedy return 
to health. 

Mr. Thorton Hood, of Kinston, has been 
spending a few days in Florida combining 
pleasure with business that carried him 

A friend sends in this item of news: "I 
understand that Oteen, N. C, is to have a 
new drug store which will open for busi- 
ness the first part of August. It is being 
opened by a man who is generally known as 
"Count Avena." Mr. Paul Dinwiddie will 
serve in this new store as prescriptionist. " 

We are distressed to hear that Mr. F. 
W. Parker, of Parkers Incorporated, Ra- 
leigh, recently suffered a stroke of apo- 
plexy. We later learn with pleasure that 
he is getting along quite well. Mr. Clement 
Byrd is in charge of the store during Mr. 
Parker's absence. 

Warrants Drawn 

Mr. B. W. Walker, State Board Inspector, 
reports that on July 14 a warrant was is- 
sued for A. L. Overby, of Angier, for oper- 
ating a drug store without a licensed phar- 
macist in charge. Trial will be in Lilling- 
ton. He further reports that a warrant was 
drawn July 16 against O. B. Wall for oper- 
ating the Peoples Drug Store at Eowland 
without a drug store permit and filling pre- 
scriptions without a license. Finally he 
says: "Lumberton, X. C, July 17. Had a 
snow storm here yesterday and last night 
Temperature 10?,°." What is the man talk- 
ing about? 




(Continued from Page 6) 
Every now and then he lias to talk over 
his illnesses with his friend the druggist and 
it is an absolute advantage to listen to all 
he has to say, to offer all the sympathy 
possible, and to agree with him, or else just 
simply listen. This friend public does not 
consider it an advantage to have his drug- 
gist (or pharmacist) out of sight when he 
comes in. It is with this friend you do 
business and make your money so it is an 

essential advantage to be "down" with 
him and not away up above him fixing his 
medicine. He demands that contact and in 
many ways he is entitled to it. He came 
here because he knew you, liked you, liked 
your way of doing business, had confidence 
in you, wanted to let you know he came, 
wants you to let him know you appreciate 
his coming, and so on. As I see it, the 
public likes and in a way demands that the 
prescription department be a main part of 
" his " store and not a separate department. 
The disadvantages are, of course, too much 
freedom behind the prescription counter on 
the main floor and the occasional watching 
of the pharmacist filling the prescription by 
the public, which a. great many pharmacists 
dislike royally. This can be avoided by 
having the mezzanine prescription depart- 
ment away from the public. 
I thank you! 


(Continued from Page 7) 
creditors and had named Mr. F. D. Swindell 
as assignee. The assets are in excess of 
$13,000 and the liabilities are $8,000. Mr. 
Tarkenton stated to the reporter that slow 
business and poor collections were respon- 
sible. It seems strange and sad too that 
Wilson will no longer have a business that 
we always think of as an intimate part 
of the town. 


(Continued from Page 13) 
There appears to be no way to make a 
clear solution without changing the pre- 
scription; therefore the only thing left for 
the pharmacist to do is to make up the mix- 
ture in a mortar and stir until effervescence 
ceases and attach a "Shake Well" label 
to the bottle when dispensed unless he wants 
to ask the doctor to change the prescription. 
We appreciate the spirit which prompted 
the sender of this prescription and hope that 
every Pharmacist in the State will feel free 
to send us his prescription problems. We 
should like to have copies of all prescrip- 
tions that are interesting or unusual in any 
way. They are useful to us in trying to 
teach Dispensing and on the other hand the 
School is given an opportunity to render 
some service to the Pharmacists of the State.

High Point, X. C, 
June 21, 22, 23, 1932. 

(Motion seconded and carried.) 

President Weatherly called upon Chair- 
man A. C. Cecil for a report of the Mem- 
bership Committee. 

Chairman Cecil presented an informal re- 
port stating that the Committee had given 
a great deal of study to possible plans for 
increasing Association membership but it 
had no recommendations to offer. 

Upon the motion of Mr. C. L. Eubanks, 
seconded by Secretary Beard, the report of 
the Membership Committee was received 
with thanks. 

Applications for membership were called 
for, but it was decided to postpone the ad- 
mission of new members until a later session. 

President Weatherly asked Secretary 
Beard to present the visiting delegates in 

Secretary Beard first introduced Mrs. 
Bruce Philip, formerly of California, but 
now of Washington, D. C, expressing the 
pleasure of the delegates that she could be 
present and voicing the regret of the mem- 
bers that her husband could not attend also 
as the official delegate of the 1ST. A. E. D. 

In a few gracious words Mrs. Philip con- 
gratulated the Association on the large at- 
tendance, and expressed Mr. Philip 's dis- 
appointment over his inability to be present, 
stating that as there seemed to be a pos- 
sibility of favorable action on the Capper- 
Kelly Bill within a few days he deemed it 
necessary to remain in Washington. 

Mr. P. A. Hayes, as delegate from the 
X. W. D. A., and Secretary Beard, as del- 
egate for the A. Ph. A., extended greetings 
from these two organizations. 

At this point Local Secretary Cecil made 
several announcements about the entertain- 
ment program. 

President Weatherly: At this time I 
will turn the meeting over to the Papers 
and Queries Committee under the chairman- 
ship of Mr. E. A. McDuffie. 


Tuesday Morning — The Hotel Sheraton 

The fifty-third annual meeting of the 
Xorth Carolina Pharmaceutical Association 
•was called to order by President A. E. 
Weatherly, of Greensboro, on Tuesday morn- 
ing, June 21, at ten forty-five o'clock in 
the convention hall of the Sheraton Hotel. 

The invocation was made by Eev. Eoy I. 
Farmer, Pastor of the First Methodist 
Church, of High Point, 

The convention was formally welcomed to 
High Point by Dr. C. S. Grayson, Mayor. 

Mr. A. Allison James, of Winston-Salem, 
graciously responded to this address of wel- 

At this point President Weatherly intro- 
duced Mr. Capus M. Waynick, of High 
Point, characterizing him "as a friend of 
pharmacy and a man whom we all appre- 
ciate. He very ably represented us in the 
last Legislature and was an opponent of the 
sales tax." (Applause.) 

Mr. Waynick extended a welcome to the 
convention as the spokesman for the local 
druggists and paid tribute to the fight phar- 
macists had made against unjust tax meas- 
ures during the 1931 General Assembly. 

Mr. J. A. Goode, of Asheville, expressed 
the appreciation of the convention for the 
cordial welcome extended by the local drug- 

The next order of business was the roll 
call by the Secretary. 

Upon the motion of Secretary BeaTd, the 
roll call was dispensed with since the regis- 
tration book recorded the names of all 

The minutes of the last meeting were 
called for. 

Secretary Beard moved that this order of 
business be dispensed with since the min- 
utes had been published in Proceedings form 
and distributed to the members. 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


Chairman" McDuffie: Your Committee 
has kept three facts in mind in preparing 
the program. We wanted it interesting, 
worth while, and to the point. We have 
endeavored to confine the papers and sub- 
jects for discussion to the practical, work- 
able conditions in the drug business. We 
will first have a paper by Mr. H. B. Hunter, 
President of the H. B. Hunter Co., of Nor- 
folk, Va., on the "Beneficial Effects of the 
National Food and Drug Act on Carbonated 
Beverages. ' ' 


By H. B. Hunter 

Prior to the passage of the Food and 
Drug Act of 1906 beverages frequently con- 
tained glucose and saccharine as sweetening 
agents in place of sugar, and almost any 
kind of artificial colors were employed as 
well as various chemical preservatives. The 
Act prohibited the use of all preservatives 
in food and beverages. The framers soon 
found they had gone too far, as harmless 
preservatives were greatly needed in some 
kinds of foods, principally beverages. 
Therefore, the Act was amended so as to 
permit the use of Benzoate of Soda. 
Shortly after the National Food and Drug 
Act was passed most of the States enacted 
similar laws. Likewise, when the national 
law was amended the several states, with 
the exception of North Carolina and Wis- 
consin, made corresponding changes in their 
statutes. Since Benzoate of Soda is harm- 
less and is of great service in preventing 
spoilage of fountain syrups and fruits, 
pharmacists should make every effort to 
have the State Law in this regard amended 
so as to make it conform to the national 

Chairman McDuffie next called upon Mr. 
Parke C. Stratford for a paper on "The 
Advantages and Disadvantages of a Mez- 
zanine Prescription Room." 


By Parke C. Stratford 

Mr. Stratford outlined in a brief way 
some of the problems that arise when a 
pharmacist contemplates re-arranging his 
store or plans to open a new one. He then 
considered the question of whether or not 
the prescription department should be on 
the main floor or on the mezzanine. He 
took up in detail the following four points 
which he believed of paramount importance 
in choosing the location for the prescription 
department: (1) the convenience of the de- 
partment to doctors and patrons; (2) the 
most expedient and proper location for the 
particular store; (3) the location most suit- 
able for the welfare of the pharmacist on 
duty; and (4) the value to the pharmacist 
of holding contact with the public. 

Mr. C. N. Herndon was asked to talk on 
"Some Things I Think Should be Taught 
in Pharmacy Schools. ' ' 


By C. N. Herndon 

Mr. Herndon stated that he had decided 
to change his subject from the one sched- 
uled to "Some Things I Think Every Drug- 
gist Should Know. ' ' He laid stress on the 
necessity for a clerk's knowing how to do 
such simple things as charging items, writ- 
ing business letters, approaching customers, 
wrapping packages, etc A clerk should 
find out what his customer is interested in, 
his name, etc. The present-day druggist 
must be able to talk intelligently about 
the drugs and the goods he handles. "We 
are dealing with a public today different 
from that of years ago. We are dealing 
with a highly educated people." In con- 
elusion the speaker spoke at some length 
about counter prescribing. 

Dean Beard: Although I have enjoyed 
Mr. Herndon 's talk very much I wish that 
he had kept his "original subject. The

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


School of Pharmacy at the State University 
welcomes very heartily any constructive 
criticisms, particularly those offered by 
members of this Association. The School 
is your School ; it was created by you ; it is 
maintained by your taxes, and when we lose 
your sympathy we lose a great opportunity 
to do a very useful work. Instead of re- 
senting criticism we want our errors pointed 
out for we know we are human and liable 
to make mistakes. In setting up our new 
four-year course we have thought of three 
kinds of retail pharmacists and have en- 
deavored to provide the specialized training 
each group requires : First, we have the 
course for the retail pharmacist that 
abounds in a great many practical subjects; 
second, there is the course for the manufac- 
turing group which will not concern itself 
with commercial subjects but will concen- 
trate on manufacturing problems ; and third, 
there is the course for the group going into 
hospitals as technicians, or who expect to 
apply for positions in the U. S. Public 
Health Service. There are certain funda- 
mental subjects common to all three groups 
and so for the first two years the course for 
every student is identical. At the begin- 
ning of the third year, however, the student 
must decide on the kind of work he wants 
to take. We have worked on these courses 
constantly for the past year ; we have sought 
advice everywhere. Of course, we hope to im- 
prove on our curricula every year but in our 
judgment the schedule is the best we can 
frame at present. (Dean Beard then out- 
lined in detail the content of the curricula.) 
The next paper was by Mr. C. C. Seawell 
on "Chain Stores versus Independents." 


By C. C. Seawell 

The speaker stated that he had worked 
for chain stores and independents and would 
not say which he considered best. He took 
up the buying and selling methods of both 
groups. The various departments of the 
drug store were discussed, and the question 

* This paper will be printed in full in an early 
issue of the Carolina Journal of Pharmacy. 

of special sales mentioned. In conclusion 
the speaker outlined "briefly the things the 
chains do better than the independent." 

Chairman McDuffte: We are interested 
in the systems individual druggists employ 
and so I am going to call on Mr. Goode to 
tell us about the sales plan he has adopted 
in his Asheville drug store. 


By J. A. Good-e 

At the outset Mr. Goode laid stress on 
the benefit derived from attendance at an- 
nual meetings. "I can think of no better 
investment a man can make than coming to 
the State Association convention each year." 
He next went into the subject of national 
advertising and its growth within the past 
decade, as well as its effect upon the retail 
druggist. Continuing, he said, "the man- 
ufacturer of the future is the man who sees 
that the retailer makes a profit." Mr. 
Goode then took up the sales policy em- 
ployed in his store. "Because I had to 
pay the rent I had to do something about 
my business. I had a cash, a charge, and a 
delivery business — 60% was cash and 40% 
charge. I felt it was necessary to have a 
uniform price policy; I must serve my cus- 
tomer as economically and as efficiently as 
my competitor. Here is the policy we 
adopted: we guarantee that our price is as 
low as the advertised price of our com- 
petitor. The price is plainly marked on 
each item. When a purchase is charged, ten 
per cent, is added to the cash price. There 
is an additional delivery charge of ten cents. 
Accounts must be paid by the fifth of the 
month or they are closed. In 1931 we en- 
joyed a 14% increase in our business and 
so far in 1932 there is a 9% decrease 
over 1931." Continuing Mr. Goode said, 
"Every new man in my store must learn it 
thoroughly before he is assigned to his 
duties ; if he doesn 't know what is in my 
store I lose on my investment. ' ' People 
must not get the idea your store is too ex- 
pensive to deal with. If they don't come 
in your store you can't sell them. Learn 
something about your business. "Your prob- 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

lem is an individual one. It is impossible 
to give you a formula. I would say, however, 
to every druggist today if you will go back 
to your business clean it up, establish a 
better inventory, you can start off at a 
profit. ' ' 

Mr. E. F. Rimmer was called upon for a 
paper on ' ' Selling for Cash. ' ' 


By E. F. Rimmer 

Mr. Rimmer stated that his paper was an 
answer to the question of whether or not it 
is possible for the modern drug store suc- 
cessfully to change from a credit to a 
strictly cash basis. He is confident that it 
can be done if the proprietor has the cour- 
age to put the plan into operation, when he 
has given his customers due notice, and as 
a scheduled plan of action dictates. He then 
showed how the cash plan had been success- 
fully operated in his store since it was in- 
augurated on January 1, 1929. 

At this point Mr. Goode introduced Mr. 
N. F. Reiner, formerly manager of sixteen 
stores in Rhode Island, but now represent- 
ative in North Carolina of the American 
Druggists Fire Insurance Co. 

Mr. Reiner stated that he had been par- 
ticularly interested in Mr. Rimmer 's paper 
as he had always conducted a cash business 
and was a firm believer in the plan. 

At this point Chairman McDuffie called 
for a discussion of the new federal taxes. 
This discussion was participated in by 
Messrs. C. L. Eubanks, A. A. James, J. A. 
Goode, H. B. Hunter, and others. It Avas 
generally felt that the manufacturers should 
absorb the taxes, but no definite action was 
taken at that time as Mr. Goode mentioned 
that a resolution would be presented cover- 
ing the matter when the Resolutions Com- 
mittee made its report at the Fourth 

President Weatherly read the following 
letters : 

* This paper was printed in full in the August 
issue of the Carolina Journal of Pharmacy. 

Elm City, N. C, 
June 17, 1932. 
Mr. Earl Weatherly, 
Greensboro, N. C. 
Dear Sir: — 

The Wilson County Druggists at a called meet- 
ing yesterday agreed to collect a tax of one cent 
on each soda drink after June 21; also the 5 and 
10 per cent cosmetic tax. Mr. J. G. Beard is to 
be notified and I decided to inform you so that 
you might consider same for the Association. 
Hoping you have a good meeting, I remain, 

Yours truly, 
(Signed) H. G White. 

Rocky Mount, N. C, 
June 21, 1932. 
Mr. F. 0. Bowman, 
High Point, N. C. 
Dear Mr. Bowman: — ■ 

The Rocky Mount Association of Retail Druggists 
met. yesterday and unanimously adopted the fol- 
lowing resolution, and respectfully requests that 
this resolution be presented to the North Carolina 
Pharmaceutical Association at their meeting in 
High Point this week with the request that they 
ask other State Associations to go on record as 
favoring same : 

"RESOLVED, That, in view of the fact that 
the Coca-Cola Company has made no reduction 
from war time prices and that the Government 
has recently imposed a tax of 6c per gallon on 
Coca-Cola syrup, we respectfully ask the Coca- 
Cola Company to absorb this tax so that the re- 
tailers will not be forced to advance their price 
to 6c. This tax, combined with the tax on car- 
bonic gas and electric current, will make it al- 
most imperative to make this advance unless the 
tax is absorbed by the Coca Cola Company." 

With best wishes, I am, 

Very truly yours, 

(Signed) M. P. Dawson, President 

Rocky Mount Association of Retail Druggists. 

President Weatherly: I feel satisfied 
that I voice the sentiments of the Asso- 
ciation when I express our heartfelt appre- 
ciation to Chairman McDuffie and his Com- 
mittee for the program just presented. It 
is one of the most delightful and instructive 
we have ever had. I wish to thank the 
Committee most sincerely for their help. 

Upon motion the meeting adjourned. 


The second session of the convention was 
called to order by President Weatherly at 
2:30 o'clock on Tuesday afternoon. 

The Secretary read telegrams of greeting 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


from the South Carolina, Kentucky, West 
Virginia, and Virginia Associations; also 
telegrams from Mr. W. Bruce Philip, re- 
gretting that he could not attend the meet- 
ing and from President John W. Dargavel, 
of the X. A. R. D., expressing best wishes 
for a successful convention and pleading for 
a larger membership from North Carolina 
in his organization ; also communications 
from Messrs. Polk C. Gray, J. C. Hood, J. 
M. Hall, Sr., and Paul Webb, Sr., conveying 
best wishes and expressing regret over their 
inability to be present at the meeting ; and, 
finally, a letter from Mr. William Niestlie 
tendering his resignation as member of the 
Association on account of continued ill 
health and because his sickness prevented 
his practicing his profession. 

Secretary Beard: Mr. Niestlie has been 
a member of the Association since 1887, and 
a practicing pharmacist for over fifty years. 
It would not seem like an Association meet- 
ing if there was not some word of greeting 
from him. In addition, he always sends us 

a basket of Venus Fly Traps. He loves the 
Association as few among us do. We would 
be honoring ourselves by making him a Life 
Member and so I would like to move that 
Mr. William Niestlie, of Wilmington, be 
made an Honorary Life Member of this 

The motion was seconded by Mr. Sam E. 
Welfare and unanimously carried. 

The report of the Secretary-Treasurer of 
the North Carolina Pharmaceutical Asso- 
ciation was called for. 


Secretary-Treasurer Beard: I have the 

honor to submit in the following pages my 

report for the fiscal year ending June 1,

Comments on Financial Statement 
It seems desirable to draw several conclusions 
from, the above report based on comparative fig- 
ures for the past few years. On June 1, 1929, I 
reported for the year just closing that dues col- 
lections amounted to $5,547, disbursements were 
$4,948, and cash balance was $3,081. A year 
later, in 1930, dues brought in $4,637, disburse- 
ments were $5,779, and cash in hand was $2,396. 
In 1931 dues totaled $4,270, expenditures were 
$5,537, and balance in bank was $1,675. This 
year the amount from dues has been $3,989, dis- 
bursements were $5,367 and the cash balance of 
$836 is at the lowest point since 1925. Thus we 
see that the reduced collections from dues have 
reduced our balance in three years by $1,500 in 
spite of the fact that our expenditures over this 
^period have been lessened by $400. 

The situation in respect to members owing dues 
•j.s as follows : 

176 owe for one year $1,308.00 

126 owe for two years 1,334.00 

'39 owe for three years 2,067.50 

Thus we see that 401 members owe the Asso- 
ciation a total of $4,709.50. We further see that 
the 99 members who owe for three years are in- 
debted to a greater extent than either the one year 
or the two year group. An analysis of the 99 
members in arrears for three years shows that a 
great majority of them are either out of the drug 
business or are no longer residing in this State 
and thus have lost their interest in the Asso- 
ciation although none has sent in a resignation. 
It is to be doubted that any material sum can be 
collected from this three-year group and in ac- 
cordance with custom they will be dropped before 
the publication of the next Proceedings. It has 
been our policy for several years to wait until 
the completion of the summer canvassing trip be- 
fore dropping any person in arrears to give full 
opportunity to get such debtors in good standing. 
It is important to bear in mind that our collec- 
tions held up comparatively well last year in spite 
of the depression, but frankness compels the as- 
sumption that the situation will be less favorable 
during the coming year. 

The membership roll on June first of this year 
is as follows : 

Regular Members 733 

Associate Members 34 

Charter Members 5 

Life Members 32 

Honorary Members 9 

Total 863 

At the same time last year the number was 890.

The minutes of the last meeting were printed in 
the Carolina Journal, of Pharmacy for October, 
1931, and mailed to every member and to other 
parties concerned. This Proceedings number also 
carried the Report of the Secretary-Treasurer of 
the North Carolina Board of Pharmacy, a list of 
the members of the Association, of the registered 
pharmacists and registered drug stores in North 
Carolina, and of the members of the Traveling 
Men's Auxiliary. 


Every legitimate effort has been exerted by my 
office on the members of Congress from North 
Carolina to persuade them to vote in a manner 
favorable to our interests. These efforts have 
taken the form of personal conversations, numer- 
ous letters, and frequent telegrams. The greater 
number of our representatives favor the Capper- 
Kelly Bill and practically all were opposed to any 
form of national sales tax. 

May I depart from the usual form of such a 
report as this to insist upon the importance of 
our membership beginning now a campaign to 
educate the new members of the Legislature to the 
problems that face the retail drug business. We 
are all prone to wait until the Legislature is in 
session and until bills affecting us adversely are 
introduced before beginning any sort of general 
work. The only effective plan of campaign against 
adverse legislation is to anticipate it well in ad- 
vance and to work individually upon legislators 
while they are at home and have plenty of time, 
free from distractions, to give thoughtful attention 
to our needs and conditions. I urge, therefore, 
the participation of every member in a movement 
designed to have every representative in the next 
General Assembly thoroughly familiar with the 
drug trade problems before any of them assemble 
in Raleigh. The Association has heretofore al- 
ways worked intensively and intelligently to handle 
developments while the Legislature was in session, 
but such work will be simpler and vastly more 
successful if each member will personally inter- 
view his legislator and educate him to see the 
crucial conditions that make additional taxation 
or restrictions unbearable and a partial lifting at 
least of the load a legitimate act of fairness. 

District Plan 
I wish to commend to your thoughtful attention 
the plan President Weatherly has just presented 
for dividing the State into districts for the pur- 
pose of bringing closer together and into unified 
action the scattered forces of our membership. If 
such a plan is adopted and receives the whole- 
hearted cooperation it deserves the benefits accru- 
ing therefrom will be obvious and valuable. County 
organizations for reasons that need not be dwelt 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

upon, fall short of the success possible when a 
greater group in a larger plan can meet together 
conveniently and regularly to act upon problems 
that arise during the interim between annual 
meetings of this Association. 

An Historical Collection 

The members will doubtless be interested to 
know that the School of Pharmacy at the Univer- 
sity of North Carolina has added in its hallways 
and auditorium a collection of twenty-nine greatly 
enlarged and framed photographs of the men who 
organized and directed the North Carolina Phar- 
maceutical Association from its founding to the 
present time. Framed with each photograph is a 
printed card giving the name of the subject and 
his connection with this organization as well as 
any statements bearing upon his life or achieve- 
ments. The collection of photographs has at- 
tracted a great deal of attention because of its 
uniqueness. The originators of the idea recog- 
nized that the School of Pharmacy came into being 
through the instrumentality of the North Carolina 
Pharmaceutical Association and has enjoyed a 
successful career largely because of the sympa- 
thetic support the Association has always ex- 
tended. In appreciation of this support the 
School decided to adorn its walls not with inter- 
national figures such as Galen, Serturner, or 
Dioscorides, or even with national characters such 
ras Proctor, Maisch, or Remington, but to pay its 
tribute to the Simpsons, Nadals, and Homes 
•who have made an indelible impress upon the 
'drug life of this State. Thus to its own home 
ilo'lkp with whom it feels very close and whose 
memory it desires to perpetuate the School of 
Pharmacy has established a simple gallery inter- 
esting to the present generation of pharmacists 
and an inspiration to students as they are passing 
through their formative and impressionable years. 

All of which reminds that the Secretary's of- 
fice has collected for its archives a complete 
record of each member who has played even 
a minor part in the Association's history — a rec- 
ord that embraces photographs and exhaustive 
biographical data of some hundred odd persons. 
This work is the patient accomplishment of Miss 
Alice Noble and will become increasingly valuable 
as the years wear on and other records become 
lost or forgotten. 

Board of Pharmacy Appointment 
Following the usual custom, I notified his Ex- 
cellency Governor O. Max Gardner of the election 
by the Association of Dr. Edward Victor Zoeller, 
of Tarboro, as a member of the North Carolina 
Board of Pharmacy to succeed himself. In ac- 
cordance with this request the Governor commis- 
sioned Dr. Zoeller as an examiner for a term of 
five years beginning April 28, 1932. 

Balloting by Mail 

Within twenty-four hours after the Wrights- 

ville Beach meeting adjourned all voting sheets 

had been mailed out to the members that listed 

the nominees for the various elective offices in the 

Association. These ballots were returned by the 
members to President Weatherly and were counted 
by a Canvassing Committee composed of Messrs. 
W. M. McKinney, R. A. McDuffie, and C. C. 
Fordham, Jr., all of Greensboro. The results 
were announced as follows: President, Polk C. 
Gray, Statesville; First. Vice-President, A. Coke 
Cecil, High Point; Second Vice-President, J. M. 
Hall, Sr., Wilmington; Third Vice-President, H. 
M. Cooke, Sr., Spencer; Secretary-Treasurer, J. 
G. Beard, Chapel Hill; and Member of the Exec- 
utive Committee for a Three-Year Term, C. C. 
Fordham, Sr., Greensboro. 

Delegate to Association of Secretaries 
In accordance with your instructions of last 
year I attended the Miami convention of the Na- 
tional Conference of Pharmaceutical Association 
Secretaries and had the honor to preside over the 
group at its sessions. Matters of vital concern 
to pharmaceutical organizations were discussed 
exhaustively and several constructive plans cal- 
culated to improve the workings of state asso- 
ciations were perfected that will bear fruit this 
year and hereafter. I also acted as the delegate 
from this Association to the American Phar- 
maceutical Association. 


I have often wished it were possible to bring 
out in an annual report a record that would show 
the amount of work and activities that go on 
through the Secretary's office during the course 
of a year, but such a large bulk of it consists of 
little, hidden, intangible things, necessary and 
important but individually not subject to classi- 
fication, that to catalogue it all would be boring 
and yet perhaps would afford ample justification 
for the continued cooperation and support that 
the office has regularly received. 

In conclusion I wish to thank the members for 
the confidence they have imposed in me over a 
twenty-year period; to acknowledge my appre- 
ciation of the cordial cooperation that President 
"Weatherly and the other officers have shown me 
during their tenure of office; to speak appre- 
ciatively of the efficient assistance that Miss Noble 
has rendered me during this and previous years; 
to call attention to the able manner in which 
Iiocal Secretary Cecil and the druggists of High 
Point have prepared for this convention; and also 
to thank those several friends and counsellors 
who have made the work of the year pleasant 
and, I hope, fruitful. 

The Association faces a year that is fraught 
with many possibilities of trouble and at perhaps 
no time in its history is it so in need of the 
whole-hearted support of each individual member. 
May I, therefore, plead for this support, and 
speaking out of twenty years experience say that 
only if it is given can the organization achieve 
its full measure of attainment. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) .T. G. Beard, 

Secretary-Treasurer . 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


Upon the motion of Mr. Cecil, duly sec- 
onded by Mr. Hancock, the report of the 
Secretary-Treasurer was accepted with 

Secretary Beard: I would like to mention 
at this time a very generous gift by the 
Woman's Auxiliary, through Mrs. F. W. 
Hancock, of $150 to the Student Loan Fund 
of the State University, to be used ex- 
clusively in helping pharmacy students in 
need of financial assistance. The University 
is exceedingly grateful to the Auxiliary and 
to Mrs. Hancock for this gracious gift. 

President Weatherly called for the report 
of the Executive Committee. 


First Meeting 

The newly installed Executive Committee held 
its first meeting immediately following the ad- 
journment of the Wrightsville Beach convention. 
The following members were in attendance: 
Messrs. A. E. Weatherly. W. W. Home, C. L. 
Eubanks, G. K. Grantham, Sr., and J. G. Beard. 
"The Committee organized itself in the usual man- 
ner by electing the president, Mr. Weatherly, as 
chairman, and the secretary-treasurer, Mr. Beard, 
as secretary of the newly organized committee. 

The budget for the coming year was carefully 
drawn up and follows in all important particulars 
the budget in effect in 1930-31. 

Mr. Bowman was re-appointed general counsel 
for the Association and was requested to make his 
usual canvassing trip to collect dues and secure 
-new members. Mr. C. M. Andrews was re-elected 
assistant secretary-treasurer and Miss Noble as 
associate secretary. The same salaries were 
authorized for these appointees as applied during 
the previous year. 

Mr. A. C. Cecil was elected Local Secretary. 
It was decided that the date tor the next meeting 
and the election of an official headquarters hotel 
would be deferred until a later meeting of the 
Committee. (Action in this regard was taken by 
mail vote on November 10, 1931, following con- 
ferences by the Secretary with High Point offi- 

Various matters pertaining to the Association 
were discussed and special emphasis was laid upon 
maintaining a satisfactory treasury balance and 
membership ratio but no definite action was taken. 

The Committee adjourned to hold a later meet- 
ing in the fall or earlier if Association affairs 
require Executive Committee action. 

Second Meeting 
The second meeting of the Executive Commit- 
tee was held in the Sheraton Hotel. High Point, 

on the evening of June 20, 1932, with Messrs. 
Weatherly, Eubanks, Home, and Beard present. 
Sitting with the group were Messrs. Fordham and 
Cecil of the incoming Executive Committee. 

The main questions discussed related to bal- 
ancing the budget and to a possible reduction in 
the amount of the annual dues. No final action 
was taken pending a joint meeting of the Exec- 
utive Committee and the Board of Pharmacy to 
be held on the afternoon of June 21. 

A committee consisting of Messrs. Eubanks, 
Home, and Andrews was appointed to audit the 
accounts of the Secretary-Treasurer. This Com- 
mittee later reported that the audit found the 
books to be correctly kept. 

It was moved by Mr. Cecil, and seconded by 
Mr. Fordham, that the T. M. A. members be ex- 
cused from the payment of the registration fee 
but this exemption does not apply to their wives 
and guests who are expected to pay the regular 
fee. This motion passed. 

The Committee adjourned at 10:45 p.m. 

Third Meeting 

At the second meeting of the Executive Com- 
mittee it was decided to ask the members of the 
Board of Pharmacy to meet with the Executive 
Committee in joint session and this meeting was 
held on Tuesday afternoon, June 21. Present 
from the Executive Committee were Messrs. Ford- 
ham, Eubanks, Home, Weatherly, Grantham and 
Beard, and from the Board Messrs. Zoeller, Han- 
cock, Rose, Ballew, and Moose. 

The Committee explained to the Board mem- 
bers that the Association had not been able to 
balance its budget for three years and as a result 
had steadily eaten into its cash reserve and had 
brought it down to a dangerously low point. The 
Committee felt that by reason of the $14,000 cash 
balance in the hands of the Board Treasurer that 
the Board could safely and legitimately assume 
the salary of Attorney Bowman and by using him 
as Counsellor, as representative to the Legislature, 
and as part time inspector would be well within 
legal rights in so doing. After considerable dis- 
cussion the Board members asked permission to 
consult among themselves as to the feasibility of 
such a course and shortly afterwards reported 
that they could not see their way clear to assum- 
ing any part of Mr. Bowman's salary. 

The meeting adjourned. 

Respectfully submitted,

Upon motion the report of the Executive 
Committee was accepted with thanks. 

At this point President Weatherly ap- 
pointed the following committees : Nominat-

C. C. Fordham, Sr., E. F. Rimmer, and J. 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

G. Ballew; Time and Place of Next Meet- 
ing: Messrs. J. P. Stowe, Chairman, R. A.

Mr. C. C. Fordham was called to the chair 
while the President's Address was being 


President Weatherly: Mr. Chairman, 
Members of the North Carolina Pharmaceu- 
tical Association, Ladies and Gentlemen: 

Serving as president of the North Carolina 
Pharmaceutical Association has been one of the 
greatest honors of my life. The experience has 
been a most enjoyable and interesting one and it 
has kindled in me a warmer feeling for my fel- 
low-druggists than ever before. It is with sincere 
and humble appreciation that I acknowledge this 
honor that you conferred upon me. 

In the beginning I want to thank the city of 
High Point, whose guests we are today, for its 
friendly hospitality. Certainly no finer place 
could have been selected for our convention. To 
the local committees I extend sincere thanks for 
their successful efforts in arranging such a de- 
lightful program that will divert our minds from 
the business perplexities we have been enduring 
and bring us joy and entertainment. 

At this time may I pay a special tribute to our 
Secretary, J. G. Beard, and to his assistant, Miss 
Alice Noble. These two have labored untiringly 
during the past year for our Association. It has 
been my privilege to observe their work very care- 
fully, and certainly they comprise a force that is 
a great factor in making our Association one of 
the outstanding ones in the country. I also com- 
mend our attorney, Mr. Bowman, for his fine 
legislative work during the past year. 

To the Traveling Men's Auxiliary I wish to ex- 
press our appreciation for the fine cooperation they 
have always given in Association work, and also 
for the friendship extended by its members to the 
druggists of North Carolina during the past year. 
Let me likewise extend thanks to the drug job- 
bers of North Carolina and to the manufacturers 
for extending their indulgence to our druggists 
during these days of perplexing financial situa- 
tions. Let me extend thanks to the pharmaceutical 
houses for maintaining their high ethical stand- 
ards and for their systems of detailing the physi- 
cian, which reverts so beneficially to the drug- 
gists. Let me condemn certain enterprises that 
encourage physicians to dispense their own med- 
icines and eliminate the druggist. We should be 
keenly alert to this situation. 

U. N. C. School of Pharmacy 
I extend congratulations to the School of Phar- 
macy at the State University on the new four- 
year course leading to the degree of B.S. in 
Pharmacy. This is a great step forward and 
Dean Beard and the Faculty should be especially 

commended as the above is a result of their 
efforts. The School of Pharmacy at the Univer- 
sity should merit the interest of every druggist 
in North Carolina. 

Sometimes we older druggists are prone to crit- 
icize the young pharmacy graduate. "We expect 
him to measure up to our own standards that 
have been acquired by years of experience. Let's 
give these young graduates our every consider- 
ation, and remember that each of us had to re- 
ceive someone's tolerance in order to acquire our 
practical knowledge and application which only 
experience teaches. 

The Visitation Committee 

I heartily endorse the Visitation Committee that 
was created last year to visit the School of Phar- 
macy at the University annually and make its. 
comments and criticisms. This Committee will be 
changed each year and will prove of tremendous 
value in giving to the druggists of North Car- 
olina an insight into the great work this institu- 
tion is doing. 


Present day conditions have made it necessary 
for us to reduce overhead expense in our stores 
to a minimum. As a result a large number of' 
registered pharmacists have been thrown out of 
employment in North Carolina. Let me appeal to> 
proprietors to give the registered man or men- 
you are employing every consideration before dis- 
pensing with his or their services. It may be- 
necessary to reduce their salaries but give them 
the opportunity of remaining in your store in- 
preference to some new and inexperienced clerk. 
The registered man has spent his time and money - 
in preparing himself for his profession and most- 
certainly he should be given the preference. I 
appeal to you to stick to your brother pharmacists 
during this chaotic period. 

Districting the State 

Never before in the history of pharmacy have 
druggists had so many problems to solve. Never - 
before have we so needed to strengthen the North i 
Carolina Pharmaceutical Association to the point 
where our power will be more greatly felt than . 
ever before in North Carolina. In order to do- 
this our Association must have greater cooperation, 
from its members. A few enthusiastic members 
can never make our Association attain the power 
it should have. We should be open to suggestions 
for building up the Association. Our plan of 
organization should be one that is in a position 
to cope more efficiently with modern day problems. 

Due to the geographical proportions of our 
State, our members in the eastern part of the • 
State lose some of their enthusiasm when an an- 
nual meeting is to be held in the western section, 
and vice-versa. We should have closer coordina- 
tion of the members of our Association. With, 
this thought in mind I offer the following sug- 
gestion : 

(1) That the North Carolina Pharmaceutical: 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


Association be divided into four districts, District 
No. 1 embracing all territory west and south of 
a line between Sparta and Shelby; District No. 2, 
all territory lying between the line just men- 
tioned and a straight line drawn from Reidsville 
to Wadesboro ; District No. 3, the territory east 
of District No. 2 to a line starting with War- 
-renton, thence to Rocky Mount, Wilson, and 
Goldsboro, thence westward to and including Fay- 
etteville and south to Fairmont ; District No. 4, 
the country east of this line. 

(2) That four vice-presidents be elected, one 
from each district, candidates for vice-president to 
"be selected by the Nominating Committee and 
elected by the mail ballot system at the same time 
and in the same manner as the president is 
elected. The vice-president from each district 
shall preside over his district meeting, the last of 
which should be held about two months before the 
annual meeting of the State Association. 

(3) That the State Association allow each dis- 
trict $25.00 for the expenses involved in mailing 
out letters, notices, etc., and the balance of the 
expense to be taken care of by a registration fee 
-from its members and by donations. 

To my mind some of the results from the above 
arrangement would be as follows : 

(1) It would give our members a chance to 
■discuss problems existing in their immediate vicin- 
ity. (2) It would increase friendliness, coopera- 
tion, and coordination among druggists in neigh- 
boring towns. (3) It would create a greater 
■enthusiasm and interest among members in the 
annual meeting of the State organization and un- 
questionably stimulate a greater attendance at the 
annual meetings. (4) It would serve as excellent 
training for vice-presidents who would be potential 
candidates for presidents. (5) It would allow 
members in all parts of the State the opportunity 
•of attending a meeting in the interest of pharmacy 
and stimulate an interest in members who here- 
tofore have not been interested in Association 

I heartily commend this plan to you and trust 
you will give it your careful consideration. 

The Next State Legislature 
The fight against discriminatory and confiscatory 
taxes imposed on the drug trade, which has been 
singled out to bear more than its share of taxes, is 
not ended. Most probably at the next meeting of 
our State Legislature we are going to have to 
"wage another fight against some form of Luxury 
Tax. To be compelled to endure a state tax of 
this nature, together with the Federal Excise Tax 
recently imposed on the drug trade, would be 
unbearable to our profession. Let's begin this 
"fight now and not wait until the crucial moment. 
We should impress upon our legislators the un- 
fairness of such a method of taxation on the 
■drug trade. I urge the druggists of North Car- 
olina not to stand idle or be indifferent to the 
issue. We must get into politics for our own pro- 
tection and salvation. We must perfect our 
Association politically to the extent that its weight 

will be more greatly felt on our legislative bodies. 

I also want to urge you to use your influence 
with our state legislators to effect a program of 
economy in our state government. I do not ad- 
vocate any rational action in this respect, but a 
safe and sane program of economy in government 
would help eliminate the possibility of an increased 
general sales tax or a luxury tax. 

Attempts are always made by some of our legis- 
lators to give some unregistered person or persons 
a license as a pharmacist, who cannot meet the 
requirements provided for by our laws. We have 
been successful in defeating all such proposals 
thus far, and we should continue to oppose vigor- 
ously such action. 

Another issue that will most likely come before 
the next meeting of the State Legislature is the 
modification of the prohibition laws, namely, the 
Turlington Act, so as to permit the sale of me- 
dicinal whisky by drug stores in accordance with 
the Federal Prohibition Laws. I will not attempt 
to advise you which course you should pursue on 
this issue. Instead, I will point out to you a 
few facts that should be seriously considered. 

1. That whisky unquestionably occupies a place 
among medicines. 

2. That whisky is being procured illegally and 
used for medicinal purposes. 

3. That legalizing whisky through the drug 
stores in North Carolina would immediately stim- 
ulate a greater number of drug stores in our 

4. That legalizing whisky would encourage 
price cutting as the volume of whisky sold by a 
drug store is based upon the entire volume of 
sales by each store. 

5. That most probably the law would be abused. 

Finally, the next meeting of the State Legis- 
lature is going to have a tremendous bearing on 
the druggists of North Carolina. We should re- 
member the long fight against the Luxury Tax 
during the last meeting. Let's be alert to the 
situation next year. Let's build up the power of 
the North Carolina Pharmaceutical Association to 
fight for the preservation of pharmacy in our 

Washington Representative 
As announced to you in the Carolina Journal, 
of Pharmacy, Mr. Eugene C. Brokmeyer, of 
Washington, D. C, represented the North Car- 
olina Pharmaceutical Association in the hearings 
before the Senate Committee on the Capper-Kelly 
Bill, and also represented our organization in the 
fight against the tax on cosmetics and soda foun- 
tain drinks. Mr. Brokmeyer rendered our Asso- 
ciation a very valuable service and within a short 
time several other state pharmaceutical associations 
followed in our footsteps and employed a similar 
counsel. It is my belief that the forty-seven 
pharmaceutical associations of the United States 
should have legal representation in Washington. 
A more intensified protest from various state asso- 
ciations and a closer coordination of various drug 
representations in Washington might have pro- 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

hibited the tax on toilet articles, cosmetics and 
fountain drinks recently passed by Congress. I 
am convinced that state pharmaceutical associations 
can cope more successfully with Congress by hav- 
ing a direct representative in Washington who 
can appeal directly to our Senators and Repre- 
sentatives in Congress. It is with pleasure that 
I recommend that Mr. Eugene C. Brokmeyer be 
appointed as special counsel in Washington for 
our Association. He has specialized in this work 
in our National Capital for more than twenty 
years and has stood the test. If appointed, his 
duties for our Association would be as follows : 

( 1 ) Appearing before Congress and the exec- 
utive departments in behalf of our Association 
when necessary. 

(2) Watching Congress and the executive de- 
partments of the Federal government for anything 
affecting independent retail druggists and report- 
ing same to the president, secretary-treasurer, and 
executive committee of our Association. 

(3) Interpretation of laws and regulations 
affecting members of our Association. 

(4) Furnishing a weekly bulletin to officers and 
members of the cost of the stationery, typewriting 
and postage, or at the rate of $2.00 per year, 
these bulletins to give an up-to-the-minute digest 
of the happenings in Washington. 

(5) To protect the professional side of phar- 
macy, especially at this time when the salvation 
of the pharmacist depends almost entirely upon 
his superior professional qualifications. 

I suggest that Mr. Brokmeyer be paid a retain- 
er's fee of not over fifty dollars ($50.00) a year 
for his services, and I most heartily recommend 
that the members of our Association subscribe to 
the weekly bulletins issued by Mr. Brokmeyer as 
they are worth many times their price. 

If you should deem it wise to employ this spe- 
cial counsel it should be done with the under- 
standing that we will continue to cooperate with 
the N. A. R. D. as we have done in the past. 

The National Drug Store Survey 
Your special attention is invited to the National 
Drug Store Survey recently completed in St. Louis. 
The importance and value of this Survey cannot 
be estimated and all druggists should either obtain 
the detailed installment copies of the Survey from 
the United States Department of Commerce at 
Charlotte or study the articles concerning it as 
published by the various drug journals. The in- 
formation divulged in this Survey is valuable and 
the successful carrying on of the findings depend 
upon how well we study the details of the Survey. 

The past year has probably been the most dis- 
astrous in the history of the drug business. All 
of us have been seriously affected by the collapse 
of various financial institutions and by the gen- 
eral shrinkage in volume of sales. To add to 
our woes predatory price cutting continued un- 
abated in the face of every one's admission that 
it is a grievous mistake. The cut rate method of 

business has resolved itself into a system of 
promotion, exploitation and racketeering which 
honest, decent druggists cannot tolerate, and if 
continued, only the racketeers can survive. Clean, 
honest young men, ambitious to enter the drug 
business are being crushed by existing conditions. 
Honest business men will be driven out of busi- 
ness. In their places will be the racketeers and 
quality merchandise will disappear. Then the 
public will pay dearly for inferior merchandise. 
The policy of the predatory cutter is constantly 
adding to our problem of unemployment and has 
contributed as much, if not more than anything 
else to the present depression. It is strange that 
the predatory cutters cannot see the utter futility 
of continuing such ruthless methods that prohibit 
any one from making a profit, injuring the great 
mass of druggists all over the country and destroy- 
ing the good will the manufacturer has succeeded 
in building up with the trade and the people at 
large. Our main weapons to fight this unfair 
economic condition are as follows: (1) The pas- 
sage of the Capper-Kelly Bill or a better measure 
as the good judgment of our national lawmakers 
may dictate that will protect us against methods 
that are fast driving the independent druggists 
out of business; (2) the retention and protection 
of our good name and good will during these 
days of chaos and strife. The good will of the 
independent still towers above anything the pred- 
atory cutter has to offer. Existing conditions 
may shake our morale severely and dishearten us, 
and even go so far as force us temporarily out of 
business, but by preserving our good will and. 
good name we can always come back. 

Mr. Fordham: I know you have all en- 
joyed the address of our President, which 
deals so comprehensively with the problems 
and needs of our profession. I shall appoint 
as the committee on the President 's Address 
Messrs. J. A. Goode, Chairman, I. W. Rose, 
and C. E. Matthews. 

At the sixth and final session the Com- 
mittee on the President 's Address made the 
following report: 

Mr. President, Members of the North Carolina 
Pharmaceutical Association: 

Your Committee, appointed to report and make 
recommendations on the President's address, de- 
sires to compliment President Weatherly on his 
splendid administration and the most able and 
valuable recommendations contained in his address. 

The members of your Committee have had the 
honor and pleasure of serving in this capacity on 
many occasions, but it is our unanimous opinion 
that we have , never had for consideration a more 
informative and able report than that embodied 
in the address of our retiring President. 

Under Recommendation No. 1, we concur with 
the President in his suggestion that the State be 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


divided in four districts, and that the counties in 
each of the districts be named in order that the 
members may easily determine the districts in 
which they reside. 

Under Recommendation No. 2, we concur with 
our President that four vice-presidents be elected, 
one for each district, candidates for vice-president 
to be selected by the Nominating Committee and 
to be elected by mail ballot at the same time and 
in the same manner as the president is elected. 
Under Recommendation No. 3, we concur with 
our President that the State Association allow 
each district $25.00 for the expenses involved in 
mailing out letters, notices, etc. 

Under Recommendation No. 4, we concur with 
our President in the many advantages of this 
method in selecting future material for the guid- 
ance of the affairs of our Association. 

We concur with the President in his recom- 
mendation that our affiliation with the N. A. R. D. 
be continued. 

We concur in the opinioD of our President in 
his statement that whisky, as supported by a 
majority opinion of the American Medical So- 
ciety and the U. S. P. unquestionably occupies a 
place among medicines. This Association went 
on record in 1908 as opposed to the sale of 
whisky in drug stores. At that time, however, it 
was obtainable from other sources in a legal way. 
We concur in our President's recommendation 
No. 6 in regard to Mr. Eugene C. Brokmeyer, of 
Washington, who so ably represented the N. C. 
P. A. in the hearing before the Senate Finance 
Committee on the tax bill and the Capper-Kelly 
Bill before the Interstate Commerce Committee. 
We join with him in the opinion that direct rep- 
resentation of the N. C. P. A., through Mr. Brok- 
meyer, is unquestionably a medium affording closer 
coordination between our members of Congress 
and their constituency. We, therefore, approve 
our President's recommendation that Mr. Brok- 
meyer be retained as our counsel for the coming 

Respectfully submitted, 
(Signed) J. A. Goode, Chairman, 
I. W. Rose, 
C. E. Matthews. 

Upon the motion of Mr. Hancock, sec- 
onded by Mr. Welfare, the report of the 
Committee vs r as accepted. 

At this point President Weatherly resumed 
the chair. 

President Weatherly asked that all reso- 
lutions be submitted in writing to Chairman 
J. A. Goode, of the Resolutions Committee, 
for presentation before the Association at 
the Fourth Session. 

The annual report of the Secretary-Treas- 
urer of the North Carolina Board of Phar- 
macy was called for. 

The report was read by Secretary-Treas- 
urer F. W. Hancock and will be found in a 
later section of the Proceedings devoted to 
the Board of Pharmacy. 

Mb. C. P. Harper: During the last Legis- 
lature I was in Raleigh a great deal of the 
time. By one vote we succeeded in defeat- 
ing the luxury tax. We almost gave up 
several times. This tax is bound to come 
up again at the 1933 session. It seems to 
me that the only way to defeat this tax is 
to reduce the cost of our government, and I 
would like to ask that every member of this 
Association do all in his power to help bring 
about the reduction in the cost of govern- 
ment in North Carolina. (Applause.) 

President Weatherly called upon Mr. John 
K. Civil to present a paper on "Should We 
Cut the Retail Price of Ice Cream." 

By John K. Civil 

The answer to this question, Mr. Civil 
felt, is emphatically, "No," especially in 
view of the fact that the ice cream com- 
panies, who advocate such, have only re- 
duced their prices to the druggists 20%, 
which they suggest selling for a 40% cut. 
The speaker had made some investiga- 
tions into the cost of raw materials that 
go into the manufacture of ice cream. He 
found the principal ingredients used in the 
manufacture of ice cream have declined over 
40% in price. The druggist should demand 
not only a reduction in price from the ice 
cream manufacturers, but should insist upon 
a higher quality of ice cream than they sup- 
ply the general stores. The only reduction 
the companies have made is on the package 
the druggist has to sell for 15c. They should 
reduce the price on bulk and regular ice 
cream to the drug trade. 

Upon the motion of Mr. E. E. Thomas 
the meeting adjourned. 


The third session of the convention was 
called to order by President Weatherly at 
8:00 o'clock on Tuesday evening.

of the Carolina Joitrnal of Pharmacy. 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

Secretary Beard introduced to the audi- 
ence Dr. Anton Hogstad, Jr., National 
Chairman of the Pharmacy Week Committee, 
formerly a member of the faculty of the St. 
Louis College of Pharmacy, and now of 
Merck and Co., paying tribute to his val- 
uable contributions to pharmacy. 

Dr. Hogstad chose as his subject, "The 
Changing Order of American Pharmacy," 
and the lecture was profusely illustrated 
with a number of very interesting slides. 
As it was necessary to present the lecture 
in a dark room it was impossible for the re- 
porter to make notes on the address. How- 
ever, Dr. Hogstad promised to provide the 
Secretary with a written copy of his re- 
marks, and when this is received the address 
will be carried in the Carolina Journal of 

There being no further business sched- 
uled for the third session, the meeting ad- 


President Weatherly called the fourth ses- 
sion to order at 10:00 o'clock Wednesday 
morning, June 22. 

The session began with a sound motion 
picture, entitled, ' ' Seven Out of Every Ten, ' ' 
shown through the courtesy of the Coca- 
Cola Company, and presented by Mr. Wilbe 
Wilson, district manager of the organiza- 
tion. The movie was prefaced with an ex- 
planatory talk. The picture outlined the re- 
sults of a study made by the A. C. Nielsen 
Company, following the methods used by 
the U. S. Department of Commerce in con- 
ducting the soda fountain study of the Na- 
tional Drug Store Survey at St. Louis. The 
study was made of actual soda fountain 
operations for a period of twenty-one work- 
ing days during July, 1931, in drug stores 
in all sizes of towns throughout the country. 
The picture demonstrated that "seven out 
of every ten ' ' customers patronize the soda 

At the conclusion of the picture President 
Weatherly recognized Local Secretary Cecil. 

Mr. Cecil: There is a little present that 
the druggists of High Point wish to make 
to the Association. For many years the 
manufacture of furniture has played a vital 
part in the social and economic life of this 

city. We, therefore, thought it would be 
appropriate for us to present a piece of 
furniture to the Association and we have 
our gift here this morning. (Thereupon, 
Mr. Cecil rolled to the center of the room 
a beautiful arm chair which had been hid- 
den in a corner up to this point. The chair 
is upholstered in red and bears across the 
back in gold letters the inscription : Pres- 
ident, N. C. P. A., High Point, N. C, June 
21-23, 1932.) The chair is to be used by 
each presiding officer at the annual conven- 
tion, is to be kept by the president during 
his tenure of office, and then turned over to 
his successor. We have had made a special 
wooden box for the chair so that each pres- 
ident may ship it easily to the annual meet- 
ings. (Applause.) 

President Weatherly : The druggists of 
High Point have certainly taken us by sur- 
prise. It seems to me that it is especially 
nice for the Association to own such effects 
as this chair. On behalf of the North Car- 
olina Pharmaceutical Association I wish to 
thank the druggists of High Point for their 
kindness in presenting us with this lovely 
gift. I am sure that the succeeding pres- 
idents will enjoy sitting in this chair as 
much as I will during this meeting. (There- 
upon President Weatherly took a seat in the 
chair amid much applause.) 

President Weatherly stated that due to 
lack of time it would be impossible to pre- 
sent the picture, ' ' Profits Plus, ' ' which had 
been so kindly sent by the Eastman Kodak 

The report of the U. N. C. School of 
Pharmacy Committee was called for. 

The following report was presented by 
Chairman Warren W. Home: 


To the President and Members of the Korth 
Carolina Pharmaceutical Association: 

Your Committee appointed to visit the School 
of Pharmacy at the State University met in 
Chapel Hill on the morning of March second. The 
President of the Association and all the members 
of the Committee were present. 

The Committee was most cordially received by 
Dean Beard and members of the faculty and 
given every opportunity for a full inspection of 
the plant and equipment. 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


At a conference with the Dean the new four- 
year curriculum was outlined and discussed. 

After a delightful luncheon in the Graham 
Memorial Building as guests of the faculty of the 
School of Pharmacy, at which President Frank P. 
Graham was present, the committee was afforded 
an opportunity of meeting the senior class in the 
absence of any member of the faculty. The Com- 
mittee learned in this way the views of indi- 
vidual members as to the work and conduct of 
the school and as to the adequacy of the courses 
of study available. 

The committee is unanimous in the conclusion 
that the School is exceptionally well equipped both 
as to housing and teaching staff. The School has 
the stamp of the best traditions of Pharmacy and 
is a distinct credit to the profession in our State. 

The Committee would recommend that as much 
time as the curriculum will permit be given to 
practical prescription work, including practice in 
reading prescriptions, receiving them on the tel- 
ephone and in typing prescription labels. It has 
been found that many new graduates are deficient 
in these details due to lack of practice. The 
Committee does not advocate, at this time, the 
establishment of a dispensary connected with or 
operated by the School. 

The Committee would also suggest that emphasis 
be given to certain courses in business manage- 
ment and business administration. Since phar- 
macists, who go in business, assume certain re- 
sponsibilities, the knowledge of which is essential 
for successful management and control, it is not 
sufficient that they know merely how to compound 
drugs and dispense medicines. They should know 
also how to coordinate the different functions and 
elements of a business in order to maintain it in 
a healthy and well balanced condition. The phar- 
macist of today is a business man, and if he is 
to succeed he must be trained in the science of 
business as well as the science of Pharmacy. He 
should know modern methods of merchandising; 
should be able to develop and create business, and 
should know then how to conserve and control 
those values that have been created. 

The Committee visited classes at work in the 
Botany, Pharmacognosy and Chemical Buildings 
and was impressed with the character and extent 
of work in these departments. 

The Committee wishes to express its appreci- 
ation of the cooperation extended by Dean Beard 
and his associates and trusts that the School may 
continue to grow in influence and importance as 
a part of our great University.

A. C. Cecil. 

Upon the motion of Mr. Grantham, sec- 
onded by Mr. Welfare, the report of the 
committee was received and filed. 

At this point the chair recognized Mrs. 
W. Bruce Philip. 

Mrs. Philip mentioned the status of the 
Capper-Kelly Bill at the present time and 
told of the work the N. A. E. D. is doing 
to safeguard the interests of pharmacists in 
Washington. She urged the cooperation of 
the Association in this work. In conclusion 
she emphasized the good results individual 
druggists can accomplish in national legisla- 
tion by interviewing Congressional candi- 
dates both before and after their election. 

The Report of the Resolutions Committee 
was called for and was presented by Chair- 
man Goode. 

Chairman Goode: The first resolution we 
have is one presented by Mr. John K. Civil 
and reads as follows : 


Resolved, that the North Carolina Pharmaceu- 
tical Association go on record requesting the sev- 
eral ice cream manufacturers to give to the retail 
druggist a high quality ice cream whereby they 
can obtain prices that will net them a reasonable 
profit and thereby benefit both the public and 

Upon the motion of Mr. Civil, seconded 
by Mr. Welfare, the resolution was adopted. 

Chairman Goode presented the following 


Whereas, the general business depression is due 
to demoralization caused by unfair trade practices 
more than to any other one cause; and 

Whereas, the Nye bills pending in the United 
States Senate amend existing lav* by prohibiting 
the sale of merchandise below cost as a trade in- 
centive and legalizing trade practice rules pro- 
hibiting unfair competition when approved by the 
Federal Trade Commission ; therefore 

Resolved, that the North Carolina State Phar- 
maceutical Association, in annual convention as- 
sembled, at High Point, June 21-23, 1932, hereby 
urges Congress to enact the Nye bills without de- 
lay as one remedy for the business depression and 
solution of the unemployment problem ; further 

Resolved, that a copy of this resolution be 
forwarded to Senator Nye, of North Dakota, to 
the chairmen of the Senate and House Judiciary 
Committees, to the President of the Senate and 
the Speaker of the House and to every member 
of the North Carolina delegation in the Senate 
and House, and that it be furnished the public 
and trade press. 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

Upon the motion of Mr. Eubanks, sec- 
onded by Mr. F. T. Mitchell, the resolution 
was adopted. 

Chairman G-oode presented the following- 
resolution : 


Whereas, Congress enacted the Porter Nar- 
cotic Act, authorizing the Narcotic Bureau of the 
Treasury Department to cooperate with the States 
to suppress narcotic addiction among physicians, 
pharmacists, dentists and veterinarians and other 
practitioners; and 

Whereas, it is necessary in States where it 
has not been done to set up the legal machinery 
and authority for this cooperation; therefore 

Resolved, that a bill be presented at the next 
session of the Legislature by the North Carolina 
Pharmaceutical Association providing for such 
authority and machinery; further 

Resolved, that a copy of this resolution be for- 
warded to Hon. Harry J. Anslinger, Commis- 
sioner of Narcotics, Treasury Department, Wash- 
ington, D. C, and be furnished the public and 
trade press. 

Upon motion this resolution was adopted. 

Chairman Goode read a resolution as 


Whereas, the Capper-Kelly bill, legalizing con- 
tracts for the maintenance of resale prices under 
conditions safeguarding the consuming public, has 
been reported to the U. S. Senate without recom- 
mendation and is now on the Senate Calendar; 

WHEREAS, the proposed law by affording an op- 
portunity to eliminate predatory price-cutting 
would insure competition for the protection of 
the consuming public if the proposed right of 
contract were restored and availed of; therefore 

Resolved, that the North Carolina Pharmaceu- 
tical Association, in annual convention assembled, 
at High Point, June 21-23, 1932, hereby reiter- 
ates its hearty endorsement of the Capper-Kelly 
bill and urges the North Carolina delegation in 
Congress to use their best efforts to have the bill 
called up and passed by the Senate and the House 
as soon as possible; further 

Resolved, that a copy of this resolution be 
forwarded to every member of the North Carolina 
delegation in Congress and to the President of 
the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Rep- 
resentatives and be furnished the public and trade 

Upon the motion of Mr. Paul Thompson, 
seconded by Mr. Eubanks, the resolution was 

Chairman Goode read the following res- 
olution : 


Whereas, the North Carolina Pharmaceutical 
Association in convention assembled at High Point, 
North Carolina, June 21, 22, and 23, 1932, is of 
the opinion that the manufacturers' excise tax cov- 
ering Coca-Cola should be absorbed by the Coca- 
Cola Company, and not passed on to the retailer; 

Whereas, information is obtained from authen- 
tic sources that the materials entering into this 
syrup are cheaper than at any time in its history; 

Whereas, an advance of thirty-five cents per 
gallon was made during the World War, on the 
basis of additional cost in raw materials; and, 

Whereas, this Association feels that it would 
be most unfair, and an intolerable burden to pass 
this tax on to the shoulders of the now over- 
burdened retailer : ■ therefore, 

Be It Resolved. That a copy of this Resolution 
be sent to the Coca-Cola Company, requesting that 
it not only absorb the tax but that it restore the 
price of the syrup to its pre-war level of one dollar 
and fifty cents per gallon. That a copy of the 
reply and action of the Coca-Cola Company be 
published in the Carolina Journal of Phar- 
macy' and other trade journals. 

Chairman Goode: The Committee in urg- 
ing the passage of this resolution feels that 
you should be supplied with dependable in- 
formation about the basis of our claim, and 
it has asked me to read to you a clipping 
from the Wall Street Journal of March 5, 
1932. (Reads clipping entitled ''Coca-Cola 
Earns $11.82, a New Record.") Gentlemen, 
the Committee believes that it was perfectly 
proper two years ago for this Association 
to ask the Coca-Cola Co. to reduce the price 
back to the old level. I presented the res- 
olution before the N. A. R D. where it was 
received with good feeling ; it went to the 
Executive Committee with a request for 
action, but to date we have heard nothing 
from it. With such profits as those men- 
tioned in the article and with the cost of 
raw materials cheaper than in the history of 
the company, it is not right for the Coca- 
Cola Company to pass this tax on to the re- 
tailer. We feel that the Company should 
absorb the tax and we. therefore, recom- 
mend the adoption of the resolution. 

Mr. Eubanks : I am heartily in favor of 
the resolution as read. We prepared a sim- 
ilar resolution at Raleigh two years ago, 
but at the time, I had the feeling, and 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


I still believe we should not quote the fig- 
ures listed in the paper. I ami heartily in 
favor of the resolution but oppose incor- 
porating figures showing what the company 
is making. 

Considerable discussion resulted from the 
remarks of Mr. Eubanks. Messrs. C. P. 
Harper and E. W. 'Hanlon heartily en- 
dorsed Mr. Eubanks ' remarks. Messrs. R. 
P. Lyon and P. M. Brame argued that the 
newspaper clipping added force to the res- 
olution. Mr. Goode stated the Committee 
felt that the reasons for asking the reduc- 
tion should be shown. He also stated that 
"the clipping was to be filed with the Asso- 
ciation records as a part of the information 
and the basis of the condemnation — not to 
be published." Mr. Stowe said the clipping 
should be used ' ' for the information of the 
convention and as a part of the official rec- 
ords and should not accompany the resolu- 
tion when sent to the Coca-Cola Company." 
Finally, upon motion of Mr. 'Hanlon, sec- 
onded by Mr. Eubanks, the resolution as 
read was adopted. 

Chairman Goode read the following res- 
olution : 


Whereas, Congress has enacted certain revenue 
legislation in the form of sales taxes affecting 
retail druggists ; and, 

Whereas, it was the intention of Congress that 
these taxes be absorbed by manufacturers; and. 

Whereas, it is a well known fact to all man- 
ufacturers that the retailer is not financially able 
to absorb any part of these taxes, and, 

Whereas, it is also well known to manufac- 
turers that only a very small percentage of retail- 
ers were able to purchase advance stocks in siz- 
able quantities, and, 

Whereas, it is impossible for the retailer to 
pass these taxes on to the ultimate consumer 
without loss to himself ; 

Therefore, Be It Resolved, that the North 
Carolina Pharmaceutical Association, in conven- 
tion assembled at High Point, North Carolina, 
June 21, 22, and 23, 1932, cause a copy of this 
Resolution to be forwarded to all manufacturers 
affected, requesting that they absorb this tax, or 
give free goods or the equivalent in view of the 
fact that it is to the welfare of the manufacturer 
that the field of distribution remain solvent. 

Upon the motion of Mr. Paul Thompson, 
seconded by Mr. Lyon the resolution was 

At this point Mr. C. P. Harper presented 
the following resolution : 

THE N. A. R. D. 

Whereas, the N. A. R. D. needs a vigorous, 
fearless and intelligent administration today as 
never before if full justice is to be done the in- 
dependent retail druggists of the country in their 
struggle for existence against the rapidly spread- 
ing chain stores, some merged with proprietary 
manufacturers; and 

Whereas, John Goode, of Asheville, North 
Carolina, as President of the North Carolina 
Pharmaceutical Association and as a member of 
the Executive Committee of the N. A. R. D. has 
proven his ability and loyalty to independent re- 
tail druggists by opposing proprietary medicine 
and chain store interests in the State Legislature 
and elsewhere whenever occasion required; there- 

Resolved, that the North Carolina State Phar- 
maceutical Association, in annual convention as- 
sembled, at High Point, June 21-23, 1932, hereby 
enthusiastically endorses John Goode for election 
as the next President of the N. A. R. D.; further 

Resolved, that the delegates from this Asso- 
ciation to the N. A. R. D. Convention in Boston 
be instructed to vote for and do all in their power 
to bring about the election of John Goode; 

Resolved, that a copy of this resolution be- 
furnished the drug trade press and presidents and 
secretaries of all State and local pharmaceutical 

Upon the motion of Mr. Harper, seconded 
by Mr. Home, the resolution was unan- 
imously adopted. 

Mr. Eubanks paid a glowing tribute to 
the splendid service of Mr. Goode in the 
N. A. R. D., and urged a large attendance 
of North Carolina druggists at the forth- 
coming meeting of the organization to fur- 
ther Mr. Goode 's candidacy as president. 

The Section on Practical Pharmacy and 
Dispensing was the next order of business 
scheduled, but upon the motion of Chairman 
Rose this feature was postponed until the- 
Sixth Session. 

At this point the Chair recognized Mr, 
A. E. Dixon, President of the North Car- 
olina lee Cream Manufacturers Association, 

In a brief talk Mr. Dixon expressed his 
pleasure at being present; stated that it was 
the ambition of the ice cream manufacturers 
to manufacture a high class product and 
they w T ere anxious to cooperate with the 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

druggists in every way possible; and, finally, 
suggested that a committee of three be ap- 
pointed by the President of the Association 
to meet with three chosen members of the 
Ice Cream Manufacturers Association to 
discuss problems of mutual interest to each 

President Weatherly stated that he would 
appoint such a committee a little later. 

At this point Mr. P. A. Hayes was called 
upon to introduce the next speaker. 

In a very graceful speech Mr. Hayes pre- 
sented to the audience Mr. Carl Weeks, 
President of the Armand Co., characterizing 
him as one who had been fighting the bat- 
tles of retail druggists to get fair prices. 

By Carl Weeks 

The speaker stated that apparently prices 
have become demoralized to a point where 
profits can only be enforced by an act of 
law. This means we must have a Capper- 
Kelly and Nye Bill to enforce profits on 
large numbers of retailers. 

The Armand case before the Federal 
Trade Commission was argued on the 
twenty-third of March and no decision 
reached. "Even the chains have begun to 
realize the necessity for some sort of price 
control. ' ' 

Continuing Mr. Weeks said : ' ' The ten 
per cent cosmetic tax cannot be treated as 
an expense. A manufacturer who absorbs 
the tax virtually admits by his act that be- 
fore the tax he could have given the retailer 
a better opportunity to profit. On merchan- 
dise that costs $8.00 a dozen, if the tax is 
passed on how can the retailer hope to make 
any profit without passing it on to the con- 
sumer. Armand endeavored to have his 
price right in the first instance, establishing 
a price of $8.00 a dozen with an additional 
25% in free goods. As long as this con- 
tinues to be a civilization for fair profit I 
intend to devote my energies to see that 
the retail distributor has an opportunity to 
get his share." (Applause.) 

President Weatherly expressed the appre- 
ciation of the Association to Mr. Weeks for 
his address. 

The Eeport of the Resolutions Committee 
was called for. 

Chairman G. K. Grantham presented an 
informal report, stating that the activities 
of his committee were covered in the He- 
port of Attorney Bowman. 

Chairman Goode: There is one more res- 
olution which should be presented at this 
session. There passed from our midst just 
a few days ago, Mr. John H. Hardin, of 
Wilmington, N". C, who was one of the out- 
standing members of this Association and a 
Charter member. I have asked Miss Alice 
Noble to prepare a resolution honoring his 
memory, because of her long friendship with 
the family of Mr. Hardin and because she 
lias access to the historical records of the 


It was with genuine sorrow that friends every- 
where learned of the death of Mr. John Haywood 
Hardin, of Wilmington, N. O, early on the 
morning of May thirtieth following a long illness. 
Those of us who knew him treasure his friendship 
and will long remember his kindliness, gentleness, 
and devotion to the profession which he sincerely 
loved. He was the dean of Wilmington druggists 
and had been in the drug business for sixty years. 
It is a real privilege to express appreciation for 
his devoted service to North Carolina pharmacy 
and to pay tribute to this courtly gentleman and 
skillful pharmacist. 

His drug store is one of the earliest memories 
of my childhood. The windows proudly displayed 
old fashioned show bottles, while old-time shelf 
bottles with their gilt labels were given a prom- 
inent place in the pharmacy. His patrons in- 
cluded not only citizens from every section of 
Wilmington, but also the truck farmers from the 
country side for many a mile around. His store 
was always a by-word for efficient service and 
courteous treatment. 

Mr. Hardin was born in Washington, D. C, on 
July 31, 1853, the son of Lauriston Bonaparte 
and Augusta (Lane) Hardin. When he was a 
small boy his parents moved to Wilmington and 
at the age of nineteen he began his long career 
as a pharmacist. After clerking for a number of 
years for several Cape Fear druggists he became 
the owner on May 1, 1880, of the drug store 
which he successfully conducted in the same lo- 
cation or next door until he was taken ill on last 
Easter Sunday. During his life-time he filled 
more than 250,000 prescriptions. 

He was one of the founders of the North Car- 
olina Pharmaceutical Association, and was very 
proud of the gold medal presented to him by the 
members in 1929 in recognition of his fifty years 
of useful service in the organization. In his death 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


the Association has lost, one of its most loyal 
members. He had not been able to attend the 
meetings in the past few years, but he took the 
keenest interest in the organization and followed 
very closely its activities. He had been a member 
of the American Pharmaceutical Association since 

He was a devout member of St. James Epis- 
copal Church, of Wilmington, and for many years 
served as vestryman. He sat in the same pew 
that his father and grandfather occupied. He was 
also a member of several fraternal orders. 

Mr. Hardin lived his life simply, conscien- 
tiously, and successfully. He loved his home and 
his fireside; his days were filled with "little, name- 
less, unremembered acts of kindness and of love." 
He was greatly beloved and venerated by his fel- 
low-citizens. Today we join with them in express- 
ing our admiration and respect for this old-time 
pharmacist, who for so many years unassumingly, 
conscientiously, and effectively practiced his pro- 
fession on the banks of the Cape Fear. 

Chairman" Goode: I move that these res- 
olutions be carried in the Proceedings and a 
copy of them be sent to the family of Mr. 
Hardin. Let us stand for a moment in 
silent tribute to the memory of this departed 

The audience rose in respect to Mr. Har- 
din's memory. 

President Weatherly: We want to find 
out whether or not druggists are going to 
absorb the new federal taxes. I am going 
to invite discussion on this subject. 

Mr. O'Hanlon felt that the drug business 
is in the most critical situation in its his- 
tory. "Due to extravagances, etc., our 
Government has run up against an enormous 
deficit. ' ' He paid tribute to the work Con- 
gressman F. W. Hancock, Jr., is accom- 
plishing in Washington, characterizing him 
as ' ' best, cleanest boy ever seen — we get a 
fair deal from him and we knew we would 
because he is the son of our old friend Drug- 
gist Frank W. Hancock, Sr. " (Applause.) 
"I appeal to the druggists of North Car- 
olina, do you want to lose everything you 
have? If you do absorb the tax. Add the 
tax on and let the people see how extrav- 
agantly the Government has been run. We 
have got to add the tax whether we want to 
or not — that if, if we want to stay in busi- 
ness. ' ' 

Mr. Stowe added another thought "as to 
why the price should be passed on to the 
public. The Government did not pass these 

taxes for us to absorb. If we do absorb 
them, the taxes will be in effect just that 
much longer. We should pass the amount 
on as a tax and not as increased cost. The 
Association should go on record as favoring 
passing the tax on to the consumers and let- 
ting them know they are paying a tax." 

At this point Secretary Beard read the 
following letter : 

Washington, D. 0., 
June 18, 1932. 
Mr. J. G. Beard, 
Chapel Hill, North Carolina. 
Dear Secretary: — 

I suggest you immediately warn your members 
that Section 1123, Revenue Act of 1926, is still 
the law. This section reads as follows : 

"Sec. 1123 (Revenue Act of 1926). Whoever 
in connection with the sale or lease, or offer for 
sale or lease, of any article, or for the purpose of 
making such sale or lease, makes any statement, 
written or oral, (1) intended or calculated to lead 
any person to believe that any part of the price at 
which such article is sold or leased, or offered for 
sale or lease, consists of a lax imposed under the 
authority of the United States, or (2) ascribing a 
particular part of such price to a tax imposed 
under the authority of the United States, knowing' 
that such statement is false or that the tax is not 
so great as the portion of such price ascribed to 
such tax, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and 
upon conviction thereof shall be punished by a 
fine of not more than $1,000 or by imprisonment 
not exceeding one year, or both." (Underlining 

The tax collected under the Revenue Act of 
1932 is a manufacturer's tax. Nevertheless, this 
punishment, the revenue department has informed 
me, would apply to a retailer's knowingly incor- 
rect statement made to collect a tax on stock on 

There is nothing to prevent the retail druggist 
at any time advancing or reducing his retail price, 
provided no misrepresentation is made, and the 
above quoted section is not violated. 

Giving credit to the National Association of Re- 
tail Druggists for this information would be splen- 
did association cooperation. 

(Signed) W. Bruce Philip. 

Mr. Brokmeyer stated that he felt it would 
be unwise for the Association to adopt res- 
olutions in regard to the taxes. 

Messrs. P. H. Thompson and W. B. Wil- 
son asked about the correct price for goods 
on hand. 

Mr. Weeks : Under the law you have the 
right to establish a price, but please don't 
blame it on the tax. 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

The discussion was further participated in 
by Messrs. Goode, Barlow, Home, Martin, 
O 'Hanlon, and Hayes. It was finally de- 
cided not to frame resolutions in this regard. 

Mr. R. P. Lyon felt that the Association 
should take some action on "whether or not 
should druggists handle whisky prescrip- 
tions. ' ' He favored the policy. No action 
was taken on the matter. 

At this point Mr. J. P. Stowe introduced 
Dr. J. M. Parrott, Secretary of the State 
Board of Health. 

Dr. Parrott expressed his pleasure at be- 
ing present and wished for the druggists a 
successful convention. 

There being no further business scheduled 
for the session the meeting adjourned. 


The fifth session was called to order by 
President Weatherly at 3:00 o'clock on 
Wednesday afternoon. 

The report of Attorney F. O. Bowman was 
called for. 


Mr. President and Members of the North Car- 
olina Pharmaceutical Association: 

I have the honor to submit at this time my 
twelfth annual report as General Attorney to your 

I desire to bring to your attention and discuss 
with you five propositions, in which it is felt 
everj' association member should be interested. 
They are as follows : 

(1) Association membership and summer trip; 
(2) insurance for association members; (3) me- 
dicinal whiskey in drug stores; (4) new Federal 
taxes; (5) legislative outlook at 1933 General 

At the outset I promise to observe brevity 
throughout and at the same time to speak frankly 
in discussing the subjects covered in the report. 

1. Association Membership and Summer Trip 

At the request of the Executive Committee, I 
again made a canvass of the drug stores of the 
State last summer and fall for the purpose of 
securing new members, collecting dues, and en- 
deavoring by personal contact, not only to carry 
the work and problems of the Association to its 
members, but in turn, to enlist the support and co- 
operation of its membership, that it might function 
more adequately and effectively. I spent 70 days 
in this work, secured 2 8 new members, together 
with one life membership, succeeded in reinstating 
a rather large number who would have allowed 
their membership to lapse except for the personal 
•visit, and collected approximately $3,000 in dues. 

Both the amount collected in dues and the 
number of new members secured was considerably 
less, around 12%%. than the results obtained 
from the 1931 trip even, which was likewise off 
in collections and new members to about the same 
extent from 1930 and years previous to that. 

The Association, therefore, has suffered a dis- 
tinct loss during the last two years, both in the 
amount of revenue collected from its members, 
and, also, from a steady decrease in its member- 
ship. This serious situation is due largely of 
course to the "Depression" extending throughout 
the State, the nation and the entire world, for 
that matter, that has enveloped us during this 
period, and brought the worst business conditions 
ever experienced even by our members who have 
been in business longest. Consequently, many 
who apparently were anxious to give their sup- 
port, have felt the necessity of foregoing this de- 
sire until some future time when business con- 
ditions should become better. It is my candid 
opinion that this delinquency is not due to any 
particular grievance or criticism of the Asso- 
ciation or its work, but attributable rather to the 
reason stated above. Only occasionally have com- 
plaints of this character come to me, the number 
being negligible, and in most of these cases the 
complaints have been based upon an erroneous or 
mistaken idea of the real purposes of our organ- 
ization, which are specifically set out in its Con- 
stitution and By-Laws. 

There is an apparent tendency, however, on the 
part of some of our members at least to become 
merely passive in interest, with respect to the 
activities of our organization, being perfectly con- 
tent to let the other fellow carry the load, perhaps 
a natural tendency under the present stress of 
affairs. Yet. the exigencies of this very situation 
call for the active support and cooperation, finan- 
cial and otherwise, of every one of its members, 
if the Association is to continue to function as it 
has done in past years. 

2. Insurance for Association Members 
Ten years ago an arrangement was effected 
with the Ohio Hardware Mutual Insurance Com- 
pany of Coshocton, Ohio, whereby the retail drug- 
gists of this State could insure with this com- 
pany, drug store buildings, drug store stocks and 
fixtures, dwellings, and household and kitchen 
furniture at a saving of 40% annually, and all 
other property they might own at a saving of 
25% annually. At the time this arrangement was 
effected, specific provision for a large saving on 
fire insurance, had been made for only the Rexall 
group of our druggists, through the United Mu- 
tual Fire Insurance Company of Boston, organized 
to meet the insurance needs of the United Drug 
Company, its agencies, and the Liggett chain of 
stores. At the time also a number of other drug- 
gists were carrying insurance with different com- 
panies, both mutual and reciprocal, at savings of 
from 20% to 40% annually. Some of these were 
not even licensed to do business in the State, 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


which would have made settlement in case of a 
fire loss difficult, if not impossible; with others, 
■adjustments of fire losses had been unsatisfac- 
tory; and, in some cases, the policies did not com- 
ply with the insurance laws of this State. It was 
in view of this situation, and for the purpose of 
affording to every druggist in the State an oppor- 
tunity at least, to effect the saving offered in 
this item of overhead expense, that the Insurance 
Committee, authorized by the Association to act 
in the matter, after a careful investigation and 
.•after conferring with State Insurance Commis 
sioner, selected the Ohio Hardware Mutual over a 
list of other companies, and effectuated the ar- 
rangement for the 40% saving. 

This company has served the druggists of the 
State who have insured with it since 1922, when 
the present arrangement was made. During this 
period, its adjustments have been entirely satis- 
factory and all losses have been paid promptly. 
It is safe and sound, conservative, and under able 
management. Its investments, unlike those of 
many other insurance companies, are gilt-edged, 
being in government common, state common, and 
municipal bonds. The assets of its re-insuring 
<eompany total more than eighteen million dollars. 
The Ohio Hardware Mutual will continue to serve 
your insurance needs, paying the usual 40% div- 
idend, and settling all its fire losses satisfactorily 
and promptly, as it has done all along. Its North 
Carolina business is now handled through the 
Zachary Insurance Agency of Charlotte. 

This statement concerning our company and 
-the working arrangement we had with it has been 
made to correct certain misunderstandings that 
liave developed. 

3. Medicinal Whisky in Drug Stores 
It is understood from reliable sources that a 
-determined effort will be made at the 1933 ses- 
sion of the General Assembly to amend the State 
prohibition laws, known as the Turlington Act, 
"legalizing the sale of medicinal whisky in drug 
stores, in accordance, of course, with the Federal 
laws and regulations governing the subject, which 
permit the sale of whisky for medicinal use by 
-pharmacists upon the prescription of physicians 
under rigid requirements and strict supervision. 
It will be recalled that such a bill was introduced 
at the last session of the legislature by Represent- 
ative Davis of Edgecombe County, at the request 
of a group of leading physicians of that and other 
counties in Eastern North Carolina. It will be 
recalled also that the bill was referred first to 
"the House Committee on Health, and after a hear- 
ing, the committee voted on a motion to report 
-unfavorably resulted in a tie, whereupon, Dr. 
Rogers of Macon County, chairman of the com- 
mittee, refused to break the tie and send it back 
-to the House "without prejudice." It was then 
referred to the Judiciary Committee. A public 
"hearing lasting for more than three hours was 
"held some days later in the Hall of the House 
packed and jammed to overflowing with spectators 

and those who spoke for and against the measure. 
No vote was taken by the Committee at the con- 
clusion of the hearing. Later, however, in Exec- 
utive Session the vote of this Committee likewise 
resulted in a tie. Rather than break the tie, 
Chairman Sutton elected to hold the bill in his 
committee, which he did until the Legislature 
closed. Had it been sent back to the House ever 
on an unfavorable report, a minority report would 
have been filed. A poll of the membership of 
the House showed that 63 of the 120 members 
favored the bill, a number sufficient to guarantee 
its passage by this body. The members of the 
Senate were not polled, yet there is good reason 
to hazard the guess that it would have been acted 
upon favorably by this body if it had passed the 
House and reached the Senate for a vote. 

There appears to be, or at least I have found, 
a strong and growing sentiment for amending the 
Turlington Act to make it conform with the Fed- 
eral laws in the matter of legalizing the sale of 
medicinal whisky, not only among physicians and 
pharmacists, but among other classes of profes- 
sional men as well as laymen. It is solely for 
the reason that so many of our own members have 
expressed themselves to me as favoring such a 
change in the law and asked that the proposition 
be submitted to the Association for consideration, 
that I bring the matter to your attention now. 
And inasmuch as we shall be confronted with a 
medicinal whisky bill during the coming legisla- 
ture, I see no valid reason why this matter should 
not be discussed frankly and such action taken 
thereon as a majority of the membership of the 
Association may determine. Personally, I do not 
wish to be understood as either favoring or op- 
posing this proposition. 

4. New Federal Taxes 
The Federal Revenue Act of 1932, known as 
the "Billion Dollar Revenue Bill" was finally en- 
acted and was approved on June 6. Prior to its 
enactment, the matter of balancing the budget 
had been the paramount question engaging Con- 
gress for several months. This bill, therefore, is 
designed to raise a total of $3,261,500,000 in 
revenue to meet the governmental expenses and 
to help erase the Federal deficit incurred during 
the last biennium. $1,118,500,000 of this stag- 
gering amount will be paid upon new tax levies 
imposed under the Act, as follows : 

Income Taxes ..$178,000,000 

Corporation 80,000,000 

Manufacturers Excise 450,500,000 

Tariffs 6,500,000 

Miscellaneous Taxes 152,000,000 

Stamp 45,500,000 

Estate and Gift 5,000,000 

Postal 160,000,000 

Under the Act, the manufacturers excise taxes, 
miscellaneous taxes and the stamp taxes became 
effective on yesterday, June 21. The increased 
income and corporation taxes are effective from 
January 1 ; the estate and gift taxes became 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

effective June 6. The increase in first-class post- 
age rate from 2c to 3c becomes effective on July 
6, and the second class postal rate and the tax on 
boats become effective July 1. 

The largest part of the new tax levies are of 
the "nuisance" type and upon articles that have 
not been taxed since the World War days. Retail 
druggists, as other individuals, are affected either 
directly or indirectly, by a large number of these 
taxes. Of especial interest to our members, how- 
ever, are the manufacturers excise taxes on toilet 
preparations and dentrifices, soft drinks, sporting 
goods and camera, candy and chewing gum, all of 
which became effective June 21. 

The tax imposed on cosmetics and other toilet 
articles is 10%, based on the manufacturers sell- 
ing price, and covers the following : perfumes, es- 
sences, extracts, toilet waters, cosmetics, petroleum 
jelly, hair oil, palmades, hair dressings, hair 
restoratives, hair dyes, toilet powders and any 
similar substance, article or preparation, while the 
tax on tooth and mouth washes, dentrifices, tooth 
paste and toilet soap, is 5%. 

The taxes imposed on soft drinks and their in- 
gredients, based on the manufacturer's selling 
price, are as follows : 6c per gallon on fountain 
syrups ; 5c per gallon on bottlers' syrup ; 1 % c 
per gallon on cereal beverages; 2c per gallon on 
mineral and table waters, sold for over 12 ^c per 
gallon ; 2c per gallon on still drinks and on fruit 
juices, for beverage purposes except grape juice; 
5c per gallon on unfermented grape juice; 2c per 
gallon on carbonated beverages made from con- 
centrates; 4c per pound on carbonic acid gas. 

The tax imposed on sporting goods is 10% of 
the price for which sold. The list of articles 
covered by this section includes all sporting goods 
of every kind, except playing cards and children's 
toys and games. 

The tax imposed upon cameras, except aerial 
cameras, weighing less than 100 pounds, and 
lenses for such cameras, is 10% of the price for 
which sold. The taxes imposed on chewing gum 
and substitutes therefor are 2% of the price for 
which sold. 

Likewise the tax imposed on candy is 2% of 
the price for which sold. 

Wholesalers and retailers do not pay any of 
these taxes unless they themselves are manufac- 
turers. Therefore, unless absorbed by one or the 
other, these excise taxes will be passed to the 
wholesaler and by him to the retailer, and by the 
latter to the ultimate consumer. 

The only tax payable by a druggist is on the 
syrups he manufacturers himself for use at the 
soda fountain, at the rate of 6c per gallon. 

The Act does not contain a "floor tax" provis- 
ion. Therefore, stocks of merchandise on hand 
June 21 are not taxable unless sold by the man- 
ufacturer after that date. Stocks in the hands of 
wholesalers and retailers, purchased from the 
manufacturer in the case of a wholesaler, or from 
a wholesaler by a retailer, are not taxable. 

5. Legislative Outlook at 1933 General 

Within a few months now, on Wednesday fol- 
lowing the first Monday in January, the 1933 
General Assembly will convene in its regular bi- 
ennial session. This legislature will be confronted 
with the most difficult problems that any North 
Carolina legislature has ever faced. I refer to 
the matter of the balancing of the State's budget, 
and providing sufficient revenue to meet the State's 
operating expenses. Despite the fact that the 
1931 legislature increased income taxes, corpora- 
tion taxes, franchise taxes and some of the priv- 
ilege taxes to the limit besides imposing a mer- 
chant's license tax to provide revenue to take 
over and maintain a constitutional six months 
school term, thereby reducing the average property 
taxes to the counties 33c on the hundred dollar 
valuation throughout the State, and despite the 
fact that drastic and, in some cases, ruinous cuts 
have been made, amounting to approximately 30% 
in all state departments, there will be a deficit of 
$3,500,000 for the present fiscal year. Again, it 
is reasonably certain that the remaining 15c 
school tax will be removed. Not only have both 
candidates for governor and practically every 
nominee for both the Upper House as well as the 
Lower House, pledged to help bring about its re- 
moval, but the Democratic platform contains a 
plank declaring that it shall be removed. This 
adds another $4,500,000 shortage. The 1933 
legislature, therefore, will be faced with the prop- 
osition of raising $8,000,000 of additional revenue 
annually for its next biennium. With improved 
business conditions, of course, revenue collections 
would increase and the amount to be raised would 
be lessened. Likewise, rigid economies may be 
made that will further decrease this amount. . The 
fact remains, however, that several million dollars, 
in all probability, will be added to the aready tax- 
burdened taxpayers of this State. From what 
source or sources this revenue will come, no one 
knows. Yet, we do know that attempts will be 
made to enact some kind of a sales tax program. 
Well organized forces, backed by powerful inter- 
ests, are now forming for battle. One group, for 
a general sales tax, and another for the so-called 
luxury tax plan. It is my opinion that if North 
Carolina does go to a sales tax policy, the latter 
will be adopted. 

Unfortunately, but a small percentage of the 
lawmakers in the next legislature will be ex- 
perienced in legislative matters, as many are going 
to Raleigh for the first time. But we are for- 
tunate in the fact that we shall have at least two 
druggists in the Lower House — Allison James of 
Winston, and LeGrande from Davie County. It 
is likely, too, that Senator Bennett will return to 
the Senate. In his case there is a second primary. 

The above conditions will confront us when the 
1933 General Assembly convenes. This organ- 
ization should determine during this convention

its policies with respect to legislation, especially 
-upon tax matters. 

In concluding, let me say that our experiences 
*t the last legislature demonstrate what may be 
accomplished by a strong organization like ours, 
■supported whole-heartedly by its membership. Two 
•concrete examples of the service this Association 
has rendered its members are : 

1. It has kept the pharmacists of the State out 
•of the occupational tax levy since 1925, a saving 
of $25 annually to each. 

2. It succeeded in getting three words inserted 
an the Merchant's License Tax law that exempted 
all soda fountain drinks, drug store made sand- 
wiches, luncheonette service, and all prescription 
department transactions from its operations, — a 
saving from $12,000 to $15,000 annually. 

These two items alone total a saving of $200,000 
to the druggists of the State during the last six 
years, more than will be received in revenue by 
the Association for the next 30 or 40 years, with 
the same dues now paid and with the same mem- 

I ask you whether or not keeping your mem- 
bership in the North Carolina Pharmaceutical 
Association is a good investment!

Upon the motion of Mr. Brame, seconded 
by Mr. J. Hunter Jones, the report of At- 
torney Bowman was accepted with thanks. 

Chairman A. Allison James was called 
•upon for a Report of the Trade Interests 

Chairman James said that his Committee 
had no report to make at that time. 

Attorney Bowman was asked to introduce 
the speaker for the afternoon. 

In a few well chosen words Attorney 
Bowman presented to the audience Mr. E. C. 
Brokrueyer, of Washington, calling/ Mention 
to his long service in fighting for the inter- 
ests of pharmacists in the national capital. 

By E. C. Brokmeyer 

The speaker expressed his appreciation to 
the Association for appointing him as their 
representative in Washington. He stated 
that some of the problems confronting phar- 
macy today may be solved in whole or in 
part, by resort to the following: (1) The 
elimination of waste of time and money 
through the. more efficient practice of phar- 
macy and conduct of the commercial depart- 
ment of the drug store; (2) the promotion 

of greater efficiency by application of the 
highest possible professional standards, in- 
cluding commercial; (3) taking advantage 
of existing laws and enacting additional leg 
islation where necessary; (4) pharmacists 
doing their full duty to pharmaceutical asso- 
ciations as well as to themselves, and phar- 
maceutical associations doing their full duty 
to their members; (5) pharmacists discharg- 
ing their duty as citizens of the State and 
United States, and pharmaceutical asso- 
ciations aiding in seeing that pharmacists 
discharge their obligations as citizens by 
helping to nominate and elect statesmen to 
serve in the local, State and Federal Gov- 
ernments; and (6) pharmacists selecting 
men of the highest intelligence and integrity 
and broad experience to serve them in local, 
State and national pharmaceutical associa- 
tions. He asserted that the Capper-Kelly 
Fair Trade Bill "will become a law when it 
is sold to the consuming public and not be- 
fore." In conclusion he took up at some 
length the tax measures of the last Congress. 

President Weatherly expressed the appre- 
ciation of the Association for the work At- 
torney Brokmeyer had accomplished for the 
organization and thanked him for his ad- 

Upon motion the meeting adjourned. 


The sixth and final session was called to 
order by President Weatherly at 10:00 
o'clock Thursday morning, June 23. 

President Weatherly turned the meeting 
over to Chairman I. W. Rose of the Section 
on Practical Pharmacy and Dispensing. 


The first order of business was the report 
of the Chairman. 


I think you are fairly familiar with this Com- 
mittee on Practical Pharmacy and Dispensing. 
It has been difficult through the years to get 
interest in this Section. I don't know why this 
is. It seems difficult to interest pharmacists in 
the prescription department. I realize this de- 
partment can be overdone, but we hear so much 
nowadays about commercial pharmacy. This is 
natural because we probably could not live from 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

the prescription department alone. However, I 
would like to urge druggists to make their pre- 
scription department the most important one in 
their stores — the prescription service first. Then 
add enough other merchandise to make some 
profit out of the business. 

Although a change in name has been made, 
there has been no change in the duties of this 
committee as expressed in the By-laws, Article 
III, Sec. V. When the word Scientific was dis- 
carded two years ago at the Raleigh meeting, it 
was done with the hope that retail pharmacists 
would feel free to present papers on any prob- 
lems met with in conducting their stores with 
reference to dispensing. Perhaps it should be 
made clear that there was no intent to discourage 
papers of a purely scientific nature, but that we 
should continue to encourage them, realizing that 
improvement in our methods of conducting our 
prescription departments comes largely through 
scientific approach. 

In trying to collect material for a report this 
year your committee has been made to wonder if 
a change in name has been any help. A number 
of letters have been written in an effort to get 
papers with almost uniform results. Some of 
the reasons given for not being able to write 
papers required nearly as much effort to form- 
ulate as to have written a paper. 

(At this point Chairman Rose read a humorous 
letter from a member giving many "reasons" why 
he could not participate in the program.) 

Your committee would not minimize the im- 
portance of any department of the modern drug 
store, but would direct attention to the basic 
position of the prescription department. In other 
days the drug store has been thought of as a 
place to get information, buy cigars, soda water, 
candy and any number of other items of mer- 
chandise including medicine; a registered phar- 
macist not being thought of as a necessity. To- 
day there is legal evidence, that if you call an 
establishment a drug store there must be a reg- 
istered pharmacist in charge. This gives empha- 
sis and an added reason as to w 7 hy we are think 
ing of a drug store first as a place to obtain 
medicine intelligently prepared. Then other items 
of merchandise, together with all sorts of in- 
formation, may be included with the service. 

The prescription department has been dealt 
with in the National Drug Store Survey in a 
most enlightening and helpful way and reports 
have just been released by the Bureau of Foreign 
and Domestic Commerce which may be had from 
the Charlotte office at five or ten cents each. It 
is hoped that wide use will be made of these bul- 
letins and that you will not only read, but study 
them. They contain a wealth of information 
which has not been available before and should 
be valuable source material for a number of 
papers at our next meeting. (Applause.) 

Chairman Rose called on Dr. H. M. Bur- 
lage for a paper on "Aromatie Elixir." 

By H. M. Burlage 

A comparison was made of the methods 
of preparation. This elixir is prepared by 
four methods: (1) U. S. P. X; (2) the 
author's modified U. S. P. X Method; (3) 
Shifiett's Method, and (4) Silver's Method. 
The last three named by changing the order 
of mixing produce preparations which have 
a satisfactory appearance at an appreciable 
saving of time. Tables were given which 
show (a) the speed of nitration, (b) certain. 
physical constants, and order of mixing. 

The members showed great interest in 
this paper. Dr. Zoeller and Mr. Brame told 
of the satisfactory results they had had with 
the U. S. P. method. 

Chairman Rose next called upon Mr. W, 
C. Ferrell for a paper. 

By W. C. Ferrell 

The practice of pharmacy is as old as- 
communities and groups of men; the art of 
healing is a long and interesting story. Pre- 
historic man's medicine and religion were 
interwoven. The development of pharmacy 
was traced through the ages to the "modern 
sanitary and clean shelves of the American 
druggist. ' ' Pharmacy is a humanitarian 
profession and where the pharmacist gives 
"himself beautifully to his calling he ren- 
ders a noble service to humanity. ' ' 

Mr. W. L. Moose was called upon as "a 
druggist who has evidenced a great deal of" 
interest in the prescription side of phar- 
macy. ' ' 


By W. L. Moose 

Mr. Moose presented an extemporaneous- 
talk. He first mentioned examples of diffi- 
culties that arise in filling prescriptions as 
written today. He then took up the growing 
tendency among doctors to prescribe pro- 
prietary remedies rather than to write pre- 
scriptions containing U. S. P. and N. F. 
drugs. The advantages of U. S. P. and 

* This paper will be published in an early issue 
of the Carolina Journal of Pharmacy. 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


N. F. preparations should be kept before the 
physician and dentist at all times. "Why 
can't we as a pharmaceutical association, 
or as a school, or as a group of men who 
are interested in drug stores take it upon 
ourselves to acquaint our customers, the doc- 
tors, and dentists with the fact that stand- 
ard preparations can be obtained at our 
stores, which will produce better results and 
at a lower cost. ' ' We should also show the 
public that we are anxious to fill prescrip- 
tions. He spoke of the desirability of a dis- 
play of U. S. P. and N. F. preparations at 
the State Medical Society, as well as at dis- 
trict, county and town medical and dental 
meetings. The exhibit should be in charge 
of a registered druggist, ready to answer 
questions, and should be supplemented with 
literature concerning TJ. S. P. and X. F. 

Mr. Moose's proposal Avas discussed by 
Messrs. Cecil, Brame, Thomas, Barlow, Ford- 
ham, E. L. Hicks, Beard, Herndon, Han- 
cock, Burlage, Crockett, Zoeller, and Mrs. 
Philip. The members were in accord as to 
the desirability of the plan, but there was 
some difference of opinion as to its execu- 
tion. Finally, upon the motion of Mr. Cecil, 
seconded by Mr. Welfare, the President was 
instructed to appoint a committee of five 
with full authority to work out the details of 
a plan to be put into effect immediately. 

President Weatherly later appointed as 
this Committee: Messrs. W. L. Moose, Chair- 
man, A. C. Cecil, I. W. Eose, J. A. Goode, 
and Warren W. Home. 

This concluded the program of the Sec- 
tion on Practical Pharmacy and Dispensing, 
and President Weatherly thanked the Com- 
mittee for its splendid work. 

At this point Mr. Eose introduced Dr. W. 
G. Crockett, Professor of Pharmacy at the 
Medical College of Virginia, calling atten- 
tion to his work as one of the authors of 
the Pliarmaceiitical Syllabus, and as a mem- 
ber of the U. S. P. Eevision Committee. 



By Dr. W. G. Crockett 

Dr. Crockett's address dealt with the or- 
ganization of the Eevision Committee and 

explained its functions. He showed the 
great amount of work necessary for Phar- 
macopoeial Eevision. In conclusion he dis- 
cussed the investigational work that is being 
carried out on some of the common galen- 
ical preparations. 

President Weatherly thanked Dr. Crockett 
for his instructive address. 

Announcement was made of the critical 
illness of Mr. W. A. Eing, of High Point, 
a member of the Association since 1897, 
and, upon the motion of Mr. Cecil, the Sec- 
retary was instructed to send a message of 
sympathy to Mr. Eing. (This was later 
sent by the Secretary.) 

The Eeport of the Insurance Committee 
was called for. 

Chairman C. L. Eubanks rendered the fol- 
lowing report: 


The Insurance Committee submits the following 
report for the year 1931-32: 

We now have approximately $700,000 worth of 
insurance in force. We have received as com- 
missions from this amount of insurance a total 
of $694.72. Our disbursements for the year 
amounted to $614.31, leaving a credit balance of 
$80.41. A summary of disbursements are as 
follows : 


Telephone and Telegrams $ 64.85 

Postage and Office Supplies 33.85 

Circular letter : 18.75 

Stationery 20.50 

Stenographic help and rent 180.00 

Traveling Expenses 296.36- 

Total - $614.31 


Receipts from Commissions $694.72 

Expenses 614.31 

$ 80.41 

Deficit on June 1, 1931 $247.65 

Deficit on June 1, 1932 $167.24

Upon the motion of Mr. Home, seconded 
by Mr. Hancock, the report of the Insur- 
ance Committee was accepted. 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

Chairman A. N. Martin was called upon 
for a report of the Committee on the Prin- 
ciples of Business Practice. 

There was no report. 

Secretary Beard : I have a paper written 
by Mr. E. C. Daniel, of Zebulon, a member 
of the Committee on the Principles of Busi- 
ness Practice, which he sent to me because 
he could not be present at the meeting. The 
paper is entitled, "Principles of Business 
Practice in a Small Town Drug Store. ' ' It 
is so good but so long that I would like to 
present it by title now and later print it in 
the Carolina Journal of Pharmacy. 

This permission was granted. 

Chairman Beard was called upon for a re- 
port of the delegates to the A. Ph. A. con- 

Chairman Beard asked that his report be 
dispensed with since it was printed in full 
in the September, 1931 issue of the Journal. 

The members agreed to this suggestion. 

Chairman Goode Avas asked for a report 
of the delegation to the N. A. R. D. con- 

Chairman Goode rendered an informal re- 
port, stating that he and Mr. Eubanks had 
attended the 1931 convention in Detroit, and 
calling attention to the aims of the X. A. 
R. D., as well as to the work the organ- 
ization is accomplishing. 

The report of the Committee on the Pres- 
ident 's Address was called for. This will 
be found on page 32. 

The next order of business was the report 
of the Committee on Time and Place of 
Next Meeting. 

President Weatherly stated that the mem- 
bers of this Committee had been compelled 
to return to their respective homes and had 
asked him to say that the Committee recom- 
mended Blowing Rock as the next place of 

This recommendation caused considerable 
discussion, which was participated in by 
Messrs. Cooke, Cecil, Herndon, Lyon, Home, 
Fordham, Thomas, Beard, Goode, and Hug- 
gins. The members felt that Blowing Rock 
offered many inducements, but in view of 
the present depression it was important to 
hold the 1933 meeting at a central point in 
the State. Finally, upon the motion of Mr. 

Fordham, duly seconded, Charlotte was se- 
lected as the place of meeting for 1933. 

Mr. C. R. Thomas : I want to make a mo- 
tion that the Secretary frame a vote of 
thanks to all that have made this meeting a 
success, and especially should we thank the 
local druggists and their families for the 
good time we have had, as well as the T. 
M. A. for their splendid entertainment. 
This meeting has been one that we will long 

The motion was enthusiastically carried. 

Chairman Goode read the following reso- 
lution from the 1931 Proceedings and asked 
that it be re-adopted: 

Whereas, we believe a sales tax is an unwise 
and inequitable system of taxation ; that its oper- 
ation would place an unreasonable and expensive 
burden upon retailers, making every merchant 
a tax collector for the State without compensa- 
tion ; that it would create bootleg merchandising 
and encourage dishonesty, that it would drive 
business from the State and increase mail order 
buying and work irreparable injury to mer- 
cantile interests, therefore, be it 

Resolved, that this Association is unalterably 
and unqualifiedly opposed to a sales tax in any 
form either general or special and its officers and 
the Legislative Committee are instructed to do 
everything possible to prevent the enactment of 
such a tax by the General Assembly of the State, 
and that we co-operate to the fullest extent with 
organizations to accomplish the defeat of any such 

Upon the motion of Mr. Hancock, seconded 
by Mr. Eubanks, this resolution was adopted. 

Chairman Goode moved the adoption of 
the f olloAving resolution : 

Wheeeas, the National Association of Retail 
Druggists has had our continuous cooperation for 
the past few years, and 

Whereas, We believe the work of the N. A. 
R. D. is most important and should be pursued 
in behalf of the retail drug trade, therefore, 

Be It Resolved by the North Carolina Phar- 
maceutical Association in meeting assembled June 
21 to 23, in High Point, North Carolina, we 
pledge our cooperation and urge the retail drug 
trade of this State, to affiliate and support the 
National Association of Retail Druggists in a 
more generous way, and 

Be It Further Resolved that a copy of this 
resolution be forwarded to the National Head- 

The resolution was adopted. 
At this point Mr. Welfare moved the 
adoption of the following resolution : 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


Whereas, the North Carolina Pharmaceutical 
Association, in convention assembled at High 
Point, N. C, June 21, 22 and 23, 1932, is ad- 
vised from the record of the hearing before the 
Senate Finance Committee that the General At- 
torney of the N. A. R. D. opposed the enactment 
of a small General Manufacturers Excise tax, and 

Whereas, the National Association of Retail 
Druggists in convention assembled at Detroit, op- 
posed a General Sales tax on the assumption that 
it would be paid by the retailer, and 

Whereas, it was to the advantage of all re- 
tailers to favor the proposed 1 % % General Man- 
ufacturers Excise tax, which would have been 
absorbed by the manufacturer without placing any 
additional burden on the retailer, and 

Whereas, this convention feels that the intol- 
erable tax burden resulting in the failure to enact 
a small General Manufacturers Excise tax might 
have been averted had we had the support of the 
General Attorney of the N. A. R. D. in vigorously 
favoring the small General Manufacturers Excise 

Now, Therefore, be it resolved that a copy of 
this resolution be sent by our delegation to the 
next N. A. R. D. convention, with the request 
that proper explanation be made of this grievous 

This resolution caused some discussion. 
Mrs. Philip mentioned some of the experi- 
ences and difficulties encountered during the 
last session of Congress, and Mr. Goode 
quoted from the record in support of the 
resolution. Finally, Mr. Herndon seconded 
the motion and the resolution was adopted. 

The report of the Nominating Committee 
was presented by Chairman Warren W. 
Home. The following names Avere submit- 
ted as nominees for office for the year 
1933-34, to be elected by mail ballot: 

For President: 

W. C. Ferrell, Nashville. 
J. C. Hood, Kinston. 

For First Vice-President: 

D. L. Boone, Durham. 

Roger A. McDuffie, Greensboro. 

For Second Vice-President: 

E. F. Rimmer, Charlotte. 
P. J. Suttlemyre, Hickory. 

For Third Vice-President: 
P. B. Bissette, Wilson. 
C. E. Matthews, Jr., Roanoke Rapids. 

For Secretary-Treasurer : 
J. G. Beard, Chapel Hill. 
John Doe, Anywhere. 

For Member of the Executive Committee 
for Three-Year Term: 
I. W. Rose, Chapel Hill. 
S. E. Welfare, Winston-Salem. 

Secretary Beard argued that the ballot 
violated the By-Laws in that a fictitious 
name appeared as a nominee for Secretary- 
Treasurer. Moreover, there must be two 
candidates for each office. The name of Mr. 
C. L. Eubanks was added as a candidate for 
Secretary-Treasurer. The report of the com- 
mittee was then accepted upon the motion 
of Mr. Hancock, seconded by Mr. Goode. 

Mr. Pordham moved that a committee be 
appointed to send a suitable message of 
sympathy and good wishes to President-elect 
Polk C. Gray. 

The President appointed on this commit- 
tee Messrs. Pordham, Home, Eubanks, and 
Beard. The committee later sent a suitable 
message of sympathy and esteem to Mr. 

The chair recognized Secretary Beard. 

Secretary Beard: There is one officer to 
be elected from the floor. As you all know, 
Professor Rose completes his term as a mem- 
ber of the Board of Pharmacy after serving 
us satisfactorily for many years and his 
successor must be chosen today. I would 
like to step down as an officer and as a 
member place in nomination a man for this 
office. Many of us have given a great deal 
of thought to the successor to Mr. Rose and 
we have come to the unanimous conclusion 
that there is one man who can fill the posi- 
tion more satisfactorily than any other per- 
son we can name. The person I have in 
mind is very much opposed for business 
reasons to allowing his name to be pre- 
sented, but those of us who have selected 
him for the post feel that we should not 
regard his personal objections. I would 
like to nominate Mr. Warren W. Home, of 
Fayetteville, to succeed Mr. Rose as a mem- 
ber of the Board of Pharmacy. He is a 
man whom I don't have to laud here; all of 
you love him as I do; all of you admire 
him as I do; and I hope you won't listen 
to any objections he may offer. 

Mr. Hancock seconded the nomination of 
Mr. Home. 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

Mr. Dowdy moved that the nominations 
be closed, Mr. Welfare seconded the motion, 
and Mr. Home was enthusiastically elected 
a member of the Board of Pharmacy for a 
term of five years beginning April 28, 1933. 

The next order of business was the in- 
stallation of officers for the ensuing year. 

Secretary Beard: I think it is only fair 
to President-elect Polk C. Gray to say that 
he feels he should tender his resignation. 
In two senses of the word he is not eligible 
for the office. He has been ill for weeks 
and cannot, therefore, be here to be installed. 
In the second place he has recently sold his 
business. I don 't think we should have any 
hesitancy in electing a successor. However, 
in view of Mr. Gray 's long service in the 
Association and because he was actively en- 
gaged in the drug business at the time of 
his election, I am. wondering if we should 
not disregard his wishes and elevate him to 
the presidency. I am not asking you to 
take this step ; I am simply suggesting that 
you give the facts I have presented your 

Messrs. Fordharn and Home felt that Mr. 
Gray should be made president. 

First Vice-President-elect Cecil : I 
move that Mr. Gray be elevated to the pres- 
idency of this Association. I can assure 
you that I will stand right behind him and 
if he finds that he is incapable of perform- 
ing any duties I will be glad to take care of 
such responsibilities to the best of my abil- 

The motion was carried and the Asso- 
ciation proceeded with the installation of 
the other new officers, elected by mail ballot 
during the summer of 1931. Messrs. Goode 
and Welfare were selected as a committee 
to present the following officers who will 
serve for the year 1932-33. 

First Vice-President : A. C. Cecil, High 

Second Vice-President : J. M. Hall, Sr., 

Third rice-President: H. M. Cooke, 

Secretary -Treasurer : J. G. Beard, Chapel 

Member of the Executive Committee for a 

Three-Year Term: C. C. Fordharn, Sr. T 

Ex-President Weatherly: The time has 
come for the new president to occupy this 
beautiful chair, given by the High Point 
druggists. In concluding my administration 
I will repeat what I stated in my address — 
that the druggists of North Carolina have a 
very warm spot in my heart. During my 
tenure of office I have realized my weakness 
in the things I have endeavored to do. I 
have tried, however, to promote the inter- 
ests of pharmacy in North Carolina to the 
best of my ability. It is now my pleasure 
to turn over the chair to Vice-President 
Cecil in the absence of President Gray. 

First Vice-President Cecil: I want to 
accept the chair in behalf of President 
Gray. I shall personally take the pres- 
ident 's chair to him for his use during the 
coming year. 

At this point Mr. Goode presented to the 
Association Dr. J. T. Burrus, of High Point, 
former legislator who vigorously opposed 
the sales tax at the last session of the Gen- 
eral Assembly, and who is now president of 
the State Board of Health. 

Dr. Burrus expressed his pleasure at be- 
ing present, spoke of how closely the med- 
ical and dental professions are allied with 
pharmacy, and paid tribute to the service 
Mr. Goode had rendered as a member of 
the State Board of Health. Continuing, Dr. 
Burrus said, "You are not only druggists 
and professional men, but you are citizens 
of this great commonwealth and you should 
be worthwhile citizens. You must be ready 
to take your position upon any worth while 
measure that comes up.'' He then launched 
an attack on "that school of demagoguery " 
which works on the premise that doctors, 
druggists and dentists aren 't business men 
and, therefore, ought not to enter polities. 
What these demagogues say is not true. 
"The doctors, the dentists and druggists are 
good business men and Ave have a right to 
take our positions in political government 
for there is no group that gives as much to 
humanity and still makes a living. " " That 
brings me up to this point. This powerful 
organization of yours should step right along 
into the arena and enter into the politics

of the government of this great state of 
North Carolina." He urged the members 
to "go down to the next Legislature and 
fight these demagogues to the death." (Ap- 

Vice-President Cecil thanked Dr. Burrus 
for his address and paid tribute to his ac- 
tivities in the Legislature and to his long 
service as a physician of High Point. 

Secretary Beard: On behalf of this body 
I wish to thank Local Secretary Cecil, 
Messrs. Hoffman, Dowdy and the other 
druggists of High Point as well as the local 
ladies for the splendid way in which they 
have arranged for the business and the 
pleasure of this convention. I wish to ex- 
press our gratitude to the visitors who came 
from a distance. A vote of thanks should 
also be given to the hotel management for 
the way they managed convention details 
before we came and looked after us when 
we arrived. We should also state our ap- 
preciation to the Traveling Men's Auxiliary 
for the delightful entertainment they pro- 
vided. We also want to thank the Justice 
Drug Co. and the Barbee-Hayes Co. for the 
barbecue, and all others who have in any 
way contributed to the success of this con- 

Vice-President Cecil announced that the 
prizes in the Golf Tournament had been 
won by Mr. P. D. Gattis, of Raleigh (a 
men's traveling set) and Mr. Ed Lane, of 
Charlotte (a fountain pen). 

Secretary Beard: We are thinking of 
establishing at the University a Student 
Branch of the X. C. P. A. and we should 
like for the Association to authorize the 
Executive Committee to grant this privilege 

if mutually agreeable plans can be formu- 

The endorsement was given. 

Secretary Beard announced a meeting of 
the new Executive Committee immediately 
following the adjournment of the conven- 

There being no further business, the con- 
vention adjourned sine die.

The entertainment features of the High 
Point convention were varied and delightful. 
The ladies were tendered an automobile 
drive over the city of High Point on the 
first afternoon of the convention. Among 
the places visited were the Comer Coving- 
ton estate, the furniture exposition build- 
ing, etc. The men enjoyed a golf tournament 
at Blair Park. Nine holes were played the 
first, afternoon and the remaining nine the 
second day. For the men who did not play 
golf free fishing was provided at City Lake. 
On Tuesday evening there was a reception 
and dance at the High Point Country Chili. 
given by the druggists of High Point. Dur- 
ing the evening special features were intro- 
duced. There was a card party at the 
Sheraton Hotel on Wednesday morning for 
the ladies and that evening the Traveling

Junel, 1932. 

To 5i.v Excellency, 

0. Max Gardner, Governor, 

Raleigh, North Carolina. 


I have the honor to submit to your Ex- 
cellency and to the North Carolina Phar- 
maceutical Association, in compliance with 
Section 6654 of the Consolidated Statutes of 
North Carolina, a report of the proceedings 
of the North Carolina Board of Pharmacy 
for the year ending May 31, 1932. 


During the year ending May 31, 1932, two 
meetings of the Board were held, both in 
Chapel Hill. These were held on June 10 
and 11, 1931, (this being the annual meet- 
ing) and November 24 and 25, 1931. 

At the Annual Meeting, Mr. W. Lee Moose 
of Albemarle presented his commission from 
the Governor as a member of the Board of 
Pharmacy for a term of five (5) years from 
April 28, 1931. Attached to said commis- 
sion was the oath of office taken before the 
Clerk of the Superior Court of Stanly 
County, and he thereupon entered upon the 
duties of the office. 


Examinations of Candidates for the certifi- 
cate of registered pharmacists and the cer- 
tificate of registered assistant pharmacists 
were conducted in Chapel Hill at the June 
and November meetings. These examina- 
tions were conducted in the Howell Hall 
of Pharmacy. 

There were 31 applicants for certificate 
of registered pharmacists, 24 being success- 
ful. Six of these were Ex-Military Service 

men. There were 23 for assistant certifi- 
cates, 15 being successful. Twelve took the 
Theoretical examination only. 

A complete list of these you will find 
further in this report. 

22 certificates of registration as phar- 
macists by reciprocity were granted, five of 
whom were re-registered. 

29 pharmacists who had been dropped 
June 1, 1931, were re-registered. 

Permits to practice pharmacy were issued 
to 11 licensed physicians living in towns of 
500 inhabitants or less. A list of these yoUj 
will find further on in this report. 

Inspection Work 
The following report is made by Mr. B.; 
Wyche Walker, the Assistant Inspector: 

Rocky Mount, N. C, 
June 1st, 1932. 

To the Members of the 

North Carolina Board of Pharmacy: 

Gentlemen : 

I have the honor to submit herewith my 
report of the inspection work from May 30th, 
1931 to May 31st, 1932. 

I have visited 346 towns and have inspect- 
ed 1080 drug stores, 26 grocery stores, 2 
cafes, 74 patent medicine shops, making 
total of 1180 inspections. Many minor vio- 
lations have been corrected and the flagrant 
violators have been indicted. We have had 
two indictments with one conviction and one 
nol-pros. Twenty-four drug signs have beeu 
removed from places not entitled to use: 

All poison registers and hypnotic registers 
have been inspected and I have ordered the 
managers of stores who had failed to pro; 
cure registers to do so. All collections oi 
samples of drugs to be analyzed have beeil 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


turned over to the chemist at Chapel Hill 
and receipt for same obtained. 

I have collected some store permit re- 
newals and also license renewals, and have 
seen that they were properly displayed. All 
matters pertaining to the Federal Prohibi- 
tion and Narcotic administrators have been 
properly handled and turned over to the 
proper authorities. All reports and investi- 
gations of the intemperate habits among the 
druggists making them unfit to practise 
have been filed with the Secretary of the 

I wish to thank the Board for their co- 
operation during the year and I have en- 
deavored to enforce the Pharmacy Laws 
and will continue to do so to the best of my 

Eespectfully submitted, 

B. Wyche Walker, 
Assistant Inspector.

JOHN ALONZO GOODE, of Asheville 
New elected President of the National Association of Retail Druggists 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 91 


North Carolina pharmacists will join with us in rejoicing over the election on 
September 30 of John A. Goode, of Asheville, as the new president of the National 
Association of Retail Druggists. Earnest friends and admirers of Mr. Goode the country 
•ver have felt for several years that he deserved the honor and have never lost an oppor- 
unity to advocate him as a useful and capable executive w 7 ho could direct the affairs 
[f the organization in an able manner. They too are happy to realize that his talents 
ave been recognized and that he is now in a position to execute the policies they would 
Ike to see in operation. 

Mr. Goode 's election is not only a personal tribute to him but a recognition finally 
f this section of the country which has never before been given a National Association 
f E-etail Druggists ' presidency. We like to hope that because of this recognition phar- 
lacists in the southeast will take a more active part in the great work that this national 
rganization is doing. 

Mr. Goode was born in Marion, N. C, on August 21, 1888. His apprenticeship began 
p 1905 in the drug store of the late James I. Johnson, of Raleigh. He received his license 
\s a pharmacist in 1909 and shortly thereafter removed to Asheville. Together with D. A. 
jEage he organized the drug firm of Hage and Goode in that city. A few years later 
Ir. Goode acquired the entire stock of the business and changed the firm name to Goode 's 
!>rug Store. Because of his unquestioned business ability, his unique ideas, and his 
ntiring energy his store became known nationally as well as sectionally and many of its 
aying policies have had wide adoption. 

Mr. Goode was president of the North Carolina Pharmaceutical Association in 1922-23 
,nd has held in addition several other responsible positions in the organization. He is a 32nd 
'egree Mason, a Pythian, a member of the Methodist church, and is a voter of the 
t'emocratic ticket. 

We shall terminate this article by modifying several sentences that we wrote about 
fim some years ago because what we said then is equally appropriate today. 

"Nothing has been said of the dynamic force that caused him to advance in six 
ears from a modestly paid drug clerk to sole owner of one of North Carolina's largest 
nd most successful drug stores, and yet this force is the dominating characteristic of the 
lan. His tireless energy is not of the restless type but is steady and powerful. What 
e wants he works hard to win, and in the process despair and doubt and fear have no 
lace. Self-made in the best sense of the term; self-believer without objectionable ego- 
sm ; optimist and dreamer without the impractical quality of either, Mr. Goode is awarded 
ie leadership of the retail druggists of the United States at a time when his frequently 
roved qualities of courage, energy and vision can be employed to promote and! advance 
ie interests of the largest organization of retail pharmacists in the world."

By A. Coke Cecil 
President of the North Carolina Pharma- 
ceutical Association 

During the past ten years there have 
entered into the prescription department 
numberless items known as Pharmaceutical 
Specialties. These so called "Specialties" 
in most eases are only our old fashioned tinc- 
tures, fluid extracts, syrups, etc., put up in 
various combinations, given a fancy name 
and sold in many cases at exorbitant prices 
by certain manufacturing concerns. A good 
many firms doing this kind of business are 
old and reputable pharmaceutical manufac- 
turers but in most cases the old concerns 
have been bought out by syndicates and self- 
ish individuals who are not interested in the 
professional side of pharmacy, but are only 
concerned with their own selfish gain. 

The procedure of these concerns is to put 
up some medicine of unquestionable merit 
in a fancy package, give it a fancy name, 
and claim some particular advantage for it 
that is not borne out in reality. They usu- 
ally employ an ex-soda boy or some other 
person who has had little or in most cases 
absolutely no pharmaceutical or medical 
training, give him a sales talk with a lot 
of big medical words and start him out to 
detail the doctors. 

These specialties are usually put up in 
original packages with the idea in mind that 
as soon as the doctor and druggist have 
sufficiently introduced them thej r will then 
put them out to the trade in the manner of 
all package medicines. Citrocarbonate is a 
glowing example of this procedure. No one 
would question the merit of Citrocarbonate, 
or question the statement that it was intro- 
duced by the doctor and druggist. How- 
ever, today Citrocarbonate can be bought in 
nearly every department store. 

There is no doubt that the pharmaceuti- 
cal manufacturers with their research labora- 
tories have done a great work in an experi- 
mental way to promote the science of medi- 
cine, and this w T ork has cost them a great 
deal of money. In cases of this kind the 

manufacturer is entitled to a fair return I 
his money, so much so that the Governme" 
recognizes his right and allows him the e; 
elusive right to sell his trade-marked proi 
uct for a period of seventeen years. 

The druggist himself can go a long w; 
in correcting this condition. In a vej 
diplomatic way he can call the attention 
the doctors who are his particular frien 
to the various U. S. P. preparations whi 
are of unquestionable merit and can be su 
plied in nearly every case at a very sms 
fraction of the cost of the ' ' specialty. ' ' 
these strenuous times this saving will be a 
predated by the patient and will put hi 
in a better position to pay his doctor. 

This evil has been carried to a dangero 1 
point. In one case Tincture of Digitalis 
put up in one ounce bottles and sold to tj 
druggists at 45c per ounce, which means th 
the patient must pay at least 75c for t 
prescription if the druggist is allowed ai 
profit at all. Tincture of Digitalis, IT. S. 1 
could be supplied on this prescription fj 
25c, saving the patient 50c and allowing t) 
dealer to make a legitimate profit, 
another case a certain brand of Blaud 
pills is put up in boxes of 100 that cost tj 
druggist from $1.10 to $1.50 which meaj 
that the druggist must charge from $1.00 
$1.25 for 50 of these pills. Blaud 's pil 
U. S. P. plain, or with iron, quiniii 
strychnine, and its various other combin- 
tions, can be bought for 20c to 25c per hu^ 
dred which means that the prescription couj 
be filled for 35c to 50e for 100. 

Cases of this kind are too numerous 
mention and if the druggist is to maintai 
his last stronghold it behooves him to det; 
every doctor at every opportunity that pi 
sents itself with the argument that he c; 
oftentimes supply U. S. P. preparations ati 
great saving to the patient who will there'i 
be better enabled to pay his doctor for 1

W. C. Ferrell, of Nashville* 


The practice of pharmacy is as old as 
humilities and groups of men. Some shi- 
rts say that it is a more ancient profes- 
n than either prostitution or priestcraft, 
iwever, there is no way of determining this 
its origin, like the origin of religion and 
origin of man is lost in the hoary mists 
antiquity and remains forever an elusive 
ret, fleeing before even the most inquisi- 
e of modern minds. Perhaps some time 
severing and pertinacious souls in the 
rch for truth will bring to ground as cold 
ts these winged mysteries fluttering out 
[the past. At present we must be content 
say that the birth of pharmacy and the 
irmacopoeia took place a long time ago 
ni the earth ; long before man began to 
te even his earliest records of himself. 
? thing we cannot doubt. Whatever may 
our concept of modern pharmacy there 
no mistaking that in ancient communities 
Iwas distinctively professional. 
When the first wild human being, bleeding 
death from wounds received in a deadly 
ounter with some predatory prehistoric 
luster of the forest, stopped to scrape some 
n from a tree and place it over the wound 
check the sickening flow of blood, he be- 
le the first pharmacist, the first physician 
the first patient. The art of healing is 
ong and interesting story and parallels 
ost in detail the story of the human race. 
)riginally the chief professions practiced 
civilized men today were one. Prehistoric 
a 's medicine and religion were inter- 
pen. Healing and magic were insepar- 
twins, conceived in the same hour, born 
much labor from the womb of Mother 
essity, and beginning a long race with 
'ering and sickness and death. Later on 
i surgeon of time and the developing 
id of human beings performed an opera- 
i which has seemingly loosed forever the 
|e inseparable twins. When healing be- 
le separated from magic, the first twin 
i:ed strong but the second waxed strong- 
great. Magic and superstition domi- 
ed man 's mind and man 's emotion. Re- 

ligion fell prey to its vicious, liniiting,*>Kjrii- °/jf 
lyzing influence. It was a terrible battle hv&c 

it marked the beginning of modern science. 
Medicine and pharmacy shook off its ugly 
grip first, though not with just a single 
struggle. Tt was a fight which lasted for 
centuries, but it was a fight in which medi- 
cine and pharmacy were to come off vic- 
torious. Religion still continues to struggle 
against it, although the last twenty-five years 
has seen it win major battles against these 
savage foes to progress. With the slaying 
of these serpents which had poisoned men 's 
minds and deadened their souls ami with 
the passing from the arena of human ac- 
tivity the last vestige of superstition and 
magic, will come the dawn of a new day in 
human history and men will have the cour- 
age to rise even to Olympian heights un- 
dreamed of. 

Because civilization began somewhere in 
Egypt the profession of pharmacy began in 
Egypt. Egyptian progress is amazing even 
to us moderns. The heights they reached 
in the practice of the arts of healing is 
amazing but their knowledge was later 
buried beneath the feet of conquering 
armies. One thing we have documentary 
evidence to support is the fact that the 
profession of the pharmacist and the phy- 
sician were distinct. With the passing of 
the medicine-man of the stone-age with his 
quaint and curious concoctions of all the 
vilest things that ever offended the olfactory 
senses of mortals ; with his weird and crazy 
dances and droning incantations over the 
sick ; and his belief in good spirits and bad 
spirits as a philosophy of disease, we find 
physician and pharmacist emerging in his 

By the time the civilization of Egypt

lighting the fires of science and art in all 
Europe. By the sixteenth and seventeenth 
centuries pharmacy was well established as 
a profession in England as well as on the 
Continent, but it has been only in recent 
years, however, that it has come into its 

It is a far cry from the dust-laden shelves 
of the musty old apothecary shops of Feudal 
Europe to the modern sanitary and clean 
shelves of the American druggist. It is a 
far cry also from the poly-pharmacy of the 
medieval apothecary who poured into his 
mixtures numbers and numbers of ingredi- 
ents, measuring their importance by the 
number of the drugs used and knowing full 
well the impotence of his preparations to 
heal, to the modern pharmacist who com- 
pounds prescriptions with accuracy and care 
and who sends his preparation forth into 
the world of sickness and suffering, know- 
ing full well their power and potency to heal, 
as messengers of mercy to ailing mortals. 

Pharmacy above all else is a humanitarian 
profession. The physician prescribes and his 
task is done. Whether his work will be suc- 
cessful depends in the large upon the careful 
filling of his prescription. Ofttimes to him 
goes much of the credit for healing when in 
the main it was due to the efficacy of the 
medicine which silent and unseen was pre- 
pared by the deft and skilful hands of the 
pharmacist alone in the secrecy of his pre- 
scription department, carefully balancing, 
measuring and weighing to the smallest 
fraction, in order that his preparation might 
yield health, when the slightest mistake 
would mean the difference between life and 
death. His is the unappreciated task. Un- 
ostentatiously he goes about his work asking 
not the applause of the populace or the 
clamor of the mob. Year after year his 
work goes on, and finally, as always where 
the best in man arises, the world begins to 
gather. Slowly he gains the confidence and 
faith of his community and slowly they 
learn to love where once they viewed with 
suspicion. Where he does his duty the phar- 
macist asks no quarter and gives none. 
Where he remains true to his calling suc- 
cess beats a path to his door. Where he is 
honest and undeceiving, where he compounds 

with accuracy and pride, where he uses no 
cheap substitutes, and where the public ser- 
vice becomes his goal, sooner or later man-i 
kind will pour its tributes of praise and'; 
lavish its laurel wreaths. Where he gives 
himself beautifully to his calling he renders 
a noble service to humanity. 

At all hours he stands ready to minister 
with his art. Whether it be late at night 
long after his closing time he rises to pre- 
pare that which will mean life to one near 
death. The true pharmacist's vision and 
love for all people is truly great. He knows 
no end of sacrifice. To the poor he gives 
his preparations expecting no remuneratioi 
or pay. The joy of having served is paj 

When that tiny child tortured by disease 
lies hot and feverish in its crib, when thi 
white and anguished' face of the moth© 
leans over it in pity, when the doctor haj 
come and gone, when all has been done tha 
can be done for its good, Avhen the Ange; 
of Death hovers so close that the flutterinj 
of his wings is heard and the hearts o: 
loved ones bleed beyond bearing, it is thj 
arrival of a little package of mercy fron 
the corner pharmacy that brings light wheri 
once there was darkness, that gives lifj 
again when death was near, and that re 
stores to the loving arms of the mother th| 
laughing face of her child whom she hai 
thought gone forever. 

In times like these the pharmacist beaJ 
his burden with the rest of suffering human 
ity. He likewise must show strength, cour 
age, faith and hope. Fellow pharmacist 
we may well pledge together in the wordj 
of the Hippocratic Oath of old: 

"With purity and with holiness I wilj 
pass my life and practice my art. . 
Whatever in connection with my professions 
practice or not in connection with it, I sei 
or hear in the life of men, which ought no 
to be spoken of abroad, I will not divulge 
as reckoning that all such should be kep 
secret. While I continue to keep this Oat 
unviolated, may it be granted to me 
enjoy life and the practice of art, respecte! 
by all men, in all times; But should 
trespass and violate, this Oath, may th 
reverse be my lot."

Good Ole ' George Clark is back in 
the Florida territory for Canada Dry. 
George, we miss you in North Caro- 
lina. Hurry back! 


Sterling L. Hubbard, who repre- 
sented Norris ' Candies in North Caro- 
lina for a long time, is now sales 
representative in North and South 
Carolina for Johnston's Chocolates 
and soda fountain supplies. Mr. and 
Mrs. Hubbard recently returned from 
a motor trip to the home of Robert A. 
Johnston and Co. in Milwaukee, Wis., 
and Sterling says he will cover his 
new territory just as fast as possible 
calling on the many friends that John- 
ston has made during his eighty- 
four years in business. He has dis- 
continued the other line of candies 
that he has been selling for the past 
few months. 


Mr. M. J. Leimkuhler, who sells the 
Pictorial Package line, was recently 
appointed by President A. D. Pollard 
as the chairman of the entertainment 
committee of the T.M.A. Enough 
said ! We will have plenty to look 
forward to at the convention in Char- 
lotte next year. 


The following ' ' peddlers ' ' were 
seen together in Crutchfield-Squires 
Drug Store in Greensboro not long 
ago: Roy Johnston (Tom's Toasted 
Peanuts), Sterling Hubbard (John- 
ston's chocolates), J. W. Harrell and 
R. I. Cromley (E. E. Squibb and Son), 

— T.M.A.— 

Herman H. Huggins (Henry K. Wam- 
pole), and Joe Wear (Hudnut's). 
Yes, you guessed it right! That's 
exactly what they were doing. 


Herman H. Huggins was a recent 

visitor to the office of the Secretary. 
We enjoyed Mr. Huggins' visit very 
much and wish that more of the 
T.M.A. members would come to see us. 


Mr. D. Frank Hayes and family re- 
cently enjoyed a ten days vacation at 
Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach. 
Frank, who is associated with the 
Justice Drug Co., is a great fisher- 
man, but he confided to some friends 
that he believed the fish down east had 
all gone blind as he couldn 't catch 
them. We are willing to concede that 
it was all the fault of the fish. 


As w-e go to press word reaches us 
of the sudden death of John Calvin 
Ferrell at his home in Charlotte on 
the morning of October 17 following 
a heart attack. He was fifty years of 
age having been born in Wake County 
on Jan. 21, 1882. He entered the 
wholesale drug business on March 7, 
1907 upon the organization of the 
Yearby Drug Co., remaining with the 
firm when it became the Peabody Drug 
Co. until the past fall. At the time 
of his death he was traveling for a 
Charlotte concern. He was for many 
years a member of the T.M.A. and of 
the N. C. P. A.

Application of New Federal 
Excise Taxes 

In view of the existing confusion in the 
minds of many druggists of the State with 
respect to the application of the new taxes 
imposed by the last Congress of the United 
States — Revenue Act of 1932 — , the writer 
takes this opportunity to explain the provi- 
sions of the Revenue Act imposing such 
taxes as directly affect druggists in the oper- 
ation of their businesses. These are the 
manufacturer's excise taxes on soft drinks 
and their ingredients and on toilet goods or 
articles, which under the Revenue Act be- 
came effective June 21, this year. 

Retail druggists must pay the manufac- 
turer's excise taxes on the following: 

(yl) Finished fountain syrups such as 
njhocoflate, vanilla, root beer, etc., manufac- 
tured hj them. The tax is 6 cents per 

(2) f 'Still" drinks made and served by 
them at the fountain. Still drinks include 
imearbonated orangeades, lemonades, and 
limeades. The tax is 2 cents per gallon on 
the finished product. 

(3) Toilet articles or goods, either manu- 
factured for them or by them, according to 
their own formula. 

(4) Prescriptions filled by them which 
come under the class of toilet goods rather 
than medicines. 

(5) Bulk toilet goods merchandise which 
they repackage. 

Every druggist who manufactures finished 
-fountain syrups or makes and serves still 
drinks is required to register with the Collec- 
tor of Internal Revenue, Raleigh, N. C. The 
"Certificate of Registry" must be con- 
spicuously displayed in the store. Careful 
records must be kept by the druggist of 
What he manufactures. 

It is not found difficult, of course, to keep 

an accurate record of finished fountain sy 
ups manufactured, nor is it a difficult tas 
to keep a complete record of toilet articli 
manufactured. However, it is next to th 
impossible to keep such a record of 9 
"still" drinks dispensed. The governmei 
does not lay down any particular methc' 
to be followed in keeping this record. '1 
simply insists that the record be kept, 
order that the taxpayer may determine tli 
amount of tax due. 

At least three different methods of keei 
ing the record of still drinks are being er 
ployed by retail druggists. In my opinio 
either of them will suffice. Some druggis' 
keep a record of the number of glasses 
still drinks (lemonades, limeades, ai ( 
orangeades) dispensed, and arrive at tl« 
number of gallons upon which the tax 
2 cents per gallon must be paid by multipl 
ing the number of drinks dispensed by 
(assuming of course that they are served 
ten ounce containers) and dividing the tot] 
number of ounces thus obtained by 12! 
others keep a record of the number 
lemons, limes, and oranges used in makh 
still drinks, and compute the number 
gallons dispensed by multiplying the tot 
number of limes, lemons, and oranges, by 
(assuming of course that one lime, lemcj 
or orange, is used for each ten ounce st\ 
drink) and dividing by 128; and still othef 
arrive at the number of gallons of st 
drinks dispensed from the amount of aim] 
syrup used. For example, if two ounces 
simple syrup is used in making a ten ounl 
lemonade, limeade, or orangeade, one gall 
of simple syrup will produce 64 such drinJ 
or 640 ounces, or 5 gallons of the finish) 
product. Every gallon of simple syrup us! 
by a druggist in making still drinks, the: 
fore, would make 5 gallons of still drinl 
taxable at 2 cents per gallon, amounting 
10 cents. It should be borne in mind th 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


imple syrup as such in no event is taxable, 
lowever, it is my opinion that the number 
f gallons of still drinks produced at the 
ountain may be arrived at properly and 
he tax computed in the manner above out- 

requirements Relating to Drug Bills 

for Cases Covered by Workmen's 

Compensation Act 

Following the receipt of inquiries from a 
umber of druggists concerning the require- 
lents of the North Carolina Industrial Com- 
mission with respect to the presentation of 
ills for drugs and pharmaceutical supplies 
urnished in connection with cases covered 
y the North Carolina Workmen's Compen- 
ation Act, this office immediately took up 
he matter with Commissioner Dorsett, ask- 
pg that we be fully advised in order that 
his information could be passed on to the 
iiembership of the Association. In re- 
ponse to this request, the following letter, 
ated October 15, 1932, has been received. 

Ir. F. O. Bowman, Attorney, 
T. C. Pharmaceutical Ass 'n., 
hapel Hill, N. C. 

This letter is being written at the special 
equest of Commissioner Dorsett in order 
aat through you the members of your Asso- 
iation may understand the Industrial Com- 
dssion 's requirements relating to the pres- 
tation of bills for drugs and pharma- 

utieal supplies furnished in connection 
ith cases covered by the North Carolina 
Workmen's Compensation Act. 

In a recent letter to the insurance com- 
anies and self-insuring employers, the Com- 
mission made it known that all bills sub- 
dtted by druggists should be itemized ; that 
, it should be made to appear just what 
rugs and other articles had been furnished. 
7e wish first to inform you that the rule has 
een modified to the extent that itemiza- 
on of bills in the amount of $3.00 or less 
ill not be required. Bills in amounts in ex- 

ss of $3.00 should be itemized. 

By itemization is not meant furnishing 
ith the statement of account duplicate pre- 
options. The Commission only desires such 
ascription of the articles furnished as will 
lable it to determine whether or not the 
rices charged are reasonable and in line 
ith charges usually made by druggists 
iroughout the State. This information 
_ay be made to appear either in the form 

f a memorandum on the bill or by a letter 
tbmitted with the bill. 

Of course, prescription numbers should be 
referred to as well as the name of the pre- 
scribing physician. We believe you will ap- 
preciate why we should know that the attend- 
ing physician prescribed the purchase of the 
drugs and supplies charged against the case 
and why we should, also, know just what 
items were furnished, as without this infor- 
mation it is hardly possible for the Indus- 
trial Commission to say whether a drug bill 
is or is not a charge to be paid by the in- 
surance company or the self-insuring em- 

If at any time it is thought that we may 
be in a position to give you additional in- 
formation about the procedure in the con- 
sideration of drug bills, we trust you will 
let us know. 

Very truly yours, 

John C. Root, 
Chief Claims Examiner. 

P.S. It may interest you to know that so 
often drug bills come to us including charges 
for medicines furnished the claimant for 
some condition other than that resulting 
from his injury or for articles furnished 
other members of his family. We mention 
this fact in order that you may all the more 
appreciate the necessity for the information 
we are asking in connection with these bills. 

It is felt that the requirements as out- 
lined in the foregoing letter by Chief Claims 
Examiner Root are reasonable. Obviously, 
the Industrial Commission must have infor- 
mation sufficient to enable it to pass in- 
telligently upon claims submitted for ap- 
proval. It appears the Commission had in 
mind making as little trouble as possible 
for the retail druggist when determining 
the requirements governing the manner in 
which drug bills should be submitted. 

Warning — One Druggist to Others 

The letter which follows recently came to 
this office from an Association member whose 
name is properly withheld, exposing the tac- 
tics of the Speagalax Medicine Company of

Is Your Rent Too High? 

The Journal, Dn/^ Topics, is carrying on 
a crusade against the excessive rental rates 
that are being charged druggists in many 
sections of the country. This is still another 
indication of the effects that high rents are 
making upon the drug business. It is said 
that one big drug chain went into the hands 
of receivers mainly because of the costly 
leases it held on store buildings — leases that 
could not be broken except by what amount- 
ed to bankruptcy proceedings. 

In the golden days of the late nineteen- 
twenties almost any rent seemed reasonable 
so long as the building was properly located 
and was in good condition. Good store sites 
were snapped up on long-time leases and 
though the percentage of sales that had to 
be given to the landlord for rent was high 
(in some cases terribly so) no one seemed 
to worry because everything else was high, 
including retail prices. 

Unfortunately, however, the boom days 
ceased, to be followed by the present era 
of slump, and now an alarming number of 
renters whose leases have not expired are 
finding their rents to be out of all propor- 
tion to sales. Landlords, Seemingly pro- 
tected by legal agreements, are refusing in 
many cases voluntarily to reduce their figures 
in accordance with the times and the lessees 
find themselves on a "hot spot." (In jus- 
tice to the landlords it should be said that 
had good times become even better they 
would have been held by the leases to rental 
figures less than their buildings would have 
brought if they had been free to rent.) 

But people who rent are less concerned 
about how the present conditions came about 
than they are in what can be applied as a 
remedy. It is cure they want, not just 

One big chain solved the problem by dis- 
solving the corporation, thus terminating all 

leases, and then promptly re-incorporating 
under a new name, offering landlords a 
rental price which had to be taken because 
no other renters were in sight, and in this 
way the chain markedly reduced overhead. 
This scheme may be legal but it certainly 
is not honorable. We cannot imagine an] 
independent druggist of our acquaintance 
who would stoop to this sort of violation oi 
a contract. 

One druggist that we know leased a store 
building in 1928 for ten years at a cost ther 
considered reasonable. For the past year his 
sales have slumped, his net has disappeared; 
and he is now simply hanging on by his eye 
teeth to a once profitable business. A fey 
w r eeks ago he called in the owner of thf 
building, showed him his books, proved t< 
him that he could not go on paying a reni 
which though fair in 1928 is too high 9 
1932, and the owner very generously re 
duced the price from fifteen hundred a yeai 
to nine hundred. 

Not every landlord, of course, will be a 
fair minded as the one just mentioned, bu 
they are usually business men and when tha 
see that a satisfactory tenant will have t 
move or close out if his rent is not lessenedi 
it usually happens that either through fair 
ness or business expediency the rent is re] 
duced. The landlord in these times doe. 
not want an empty store building on hi 

Jerry McQuade, of Drug Topics, is sug 
gesting that druggists paying high rents g' 
to landlords with a proposal that the ren, 
be based on gross annual sales. Stores doiiu 
less than $25,000 should pay not over 3 pe 
cent, of gross (not net) sales. On a $25,00' 
to $50,000 business the figure should not b 
over 3y 2 %; $50,000 to $75,000, 4%; $75, 
000 to $100,000, 5%; over $100,000 no. 
over 6%. In towns having no wholesal 
house the percentages should be reduced h;

0.5% because of increased delivery charge. 
Liggett 's, the largest chain in the world, 
faced with decreasing sales, has recently 
asked for lower rents. 

The Owl Drug Co. (128 stores) has filed 
a petition in bankruptcy, citing high rents 
as a reason. The same thing applies to 
Whelan's, the third largest chain. Every 
one knows the story of what happened when 
the United Cigar Stores Co. went into bank- 
ruptcy and got lower rents thereby. The 
A. & P. stores were forced to ask for lower 

If these great corporations, using scientific 
accounting methods, efficient sales systems, 
having no charge accounts, and offering no 
service features, cannot pay high rents, how 
on earth can little fellows stay in business 
if they must pay pre-depression rental costs? 
The answer is clear — they can not. Land- 
lords should be shown this fact. 


On the eve of the coming together of the 
next Legislature the North Carolina Phar- 
maceutical Association finds itself without 
sufficient funds to carry on the active work 
that it has heretofore done and which is 
needed in greater amount this time. The 
Association income has been reduced to a 
dangerous point because members are be- 
hind in dues. The Treasurer has realized 
that business conditions are mainly respon- 
sible for dues not being paid and has not 
been pressing any member to pay up. The 
time has come, however, to set forth frank- 
ly the fact that' unless a substantial sum is 
forthcoming from dues during December 
there can be no concerted, active work done 
at Raleigh no matter how urgent the neces- 
sity for such work. Plans for such work 
must be organized before the Legislature 
convenes if they are to be effective. Such 
plans cannot be laid if there is not enough 
money in sight to cover the costs involved. 
If everything is delayed until an emergency 
at Raleigh arises, it will be too late to do a 
good job even if money then comes in freely 
because of the emergency. That there will 
be emergencies, crises, and numerous threats 
of danger is not a matter of doubt but of 

fact. The only' doubt is in whether the 
fact will be realized by members owing dues 
in time for their payments to do much 
good. If these members would only pay one- 
half (some of them one-fourth) of their dues 
the Association could finance its legitimate 
legislative activities in an adequate way. 
If they do not — well, they may find them- 
selves forced to pay a great deal more in 
the form of tax levies and compelled to take 
on restrictive burdens that are often thrust 
upon persons who offer no resistance. This 
is not meant to scare any one into doing 
anything ; it is simply an effort to explain 
that the Association absolutely cannot do 
what is expected of it if it does not have 
funds on hand for the job. Not funds for 
a lobby; not funds to buy votes (even if 
votes could be bought) ; but money to pay 
for the costs that must be met when any 
organized group seeks in every legitimate 
way to protect its interests from thoughtless 
legislation or ill-considered revenue meas- 
ures that are invariably introduced at every 
session of every state legislature. 

This article, therefore, is an earnest plea 
directed to every member of the Association 
who owes dues asking him to send in at 
once as much of the dues as he possibly can. 
This payment will represent the premium on 
a policy of self-protective insurance. 

One-Man Drug Stores 

In Secretary Hancock's report of the 
Board of Pharmacy for the year ending 
May 31, 1932, it is noticed that of the 810 
drug stores registered on that date, 652, 
or 80 °/c, had only one licensed pharmacist. 
One hundred and thirty-eight stores, or 17%, 
had two pharmacists; 19, or 2.3%, had 
three pharmacists; and one had four phar- 
macists. In addition to the 810 stores 
manned by pharmacists, there were 54 stores 
conducted by physicians who were licensed 
to run drug stores but not permitted to fill 
any prescriptions except their own. 

It is interesting to note that exactly the 

same number of drug stores (810) that were 

registered this year were also registered a 

year before. There were changes in owner-

Congress Convenes 

On December 5th, the Seventy-second 
Congress of the United States will be in 
session again. During the Short Session of 
three months, as it has been tersely put, 
' ' its most urgent task is to bridge the chasm 
between revenue and expenditure ' ', which 
means that a revision of the 1932 Revenue 
Act at this session appears certain. 

Despite the many new taxes imposed at 
the last session of Congress in its effort to 
"balance the budget" for the fiscal year 
ending June 30, 1933, the deficit during the 
first four months of the present fiscal year 
is reported to be more than $600,000,000, 
which at the same rate will run $1,000,- 
000,000 for this year, as against $2,885,000,- 
000 for the fiscal year ending June 30, last. 
This huge deficit has come about by the fail- 
ure of the income tax and the miscellane- 
ous special taxes to produce the revenue an- 
ticipated. In this connection, the special 
taxes, including the toilet articles and cos- 
metic tax and the tax on soft drinks and 
their ingredients are yielding less than one- 
half the amount in taxes they were estimated 
to produce. It is predicted, therefore, that 
these special excise taxes will be eliminated 
in the revenue revision. And, inasmuch as 
the Ways and Means Committee, with a 
Democratic Chairman, made a unanimous re- 
port in favor of a general manufacturers ' 
sales tax at the last session of Congress, 
which had the backing of the Treasury De- 
partment and would have been signed by 
President Koover, it is predicted, also, that 
a general manufacturers ' sales tax will be 
adopted at the coming Short Session of Con- 

It is argued by some, however, that the 
budget may be balanced by reducing govern- 
mental expenses and by placing a tax on 
beer. In fact, the successful party has 
promised to reduce the operating expenses 

of the Government one billion dollars an- 
nually. But, judging by results that have 
come from attempts made to cut down ex- 
penses heretofore, it will be impossible for 
the new administration to fulfill its cam- 
paign promise. As for the tax on beer, even 
if the law is amended so as to permit its 
manufacture and sale for beverage purposes, 
the greatest amount of revenue it is ex- 
pected to produce is three or four hundred 
million dollars annually. A general manu- 
facturers ' sales tax, therefore, seems in- 
evitable if the Federal Government is to op- 
erate with a balanced budget.

1933 General Assembly Convenes, 
January 7 

Within a few weeks, January 7th, the 
1933 General Assembly will convene in its 
Regular Bi-ennial Session. It will be faced 
with a deficit of approximately $11,000,000, 
together with the proposition of removing 
the remaining 15c tax levy on real estate

now made for the state school fund, which 
will amount to a loss in revenue to the State 
of between three and four million dollars. 

The Director of the Budget and the Ad- 
visory Budget Commission has been in ses- 
sion for several weeks now struggling with 
the stupendous task of providing the revenue 
needed for the operation expenses of the 
State Government, and at the same time pro- 
vide in some manner for the deficit already 
incurred. The Budget Bevenue Bill will be 
drafted and ready to submit to the General 
Assembly when it convenes.

Mr. Randall Newton Mann, well knov 
pharmacist of High Point and president ai 
general manager of the Manufacturers I 
surance Agency, Inc., died suddenly on t', 
morning of October 3. He suffered a slig 
heart attack in the early morning, but 1 
condition was not considered serious un 
just before his death. Mr. Mann was bo 
in Siler City on July 15, 1894, the son 
J. D. and Eva (Woodburn) Mann. He w, 
educated at the High Point city schools, t 
Staunton Military Academy and the U] 
versity of North Carolina. He was licensj 
as a pharmacist in 1915. For several yes 
he was associated with his father in t 
drug business in High Point. On July 
1919 he married Miss Katherine Tate, 
was a member of the Masonic order and 1 
American Legion. During his funeral 
drug stores in High Point closed out

The thing that interests us in this si, 
ation is the fact that eight out of evi 
ten North Carolina drug stores have only < 
licensed pharmacist in charge. Is thisl 
healthy or safe condition of affairs? S*| 
pose we argue that every drug store shoj 
have two pharmacists employed in or!a 
that the place may never be open except wl 
a registered clerk on duty — suppose weB 
say this, where are the extra 652 men com« 
from? According to Secretary Hancoc« 
records there are 1,099 pharmacists « 
are registered in North Carolina. Since m 
of these are already employed in the m

rug stores, there are only 110 registered 
len legally available to give each of the 
52 one-man stores another prescriptionist. 
'hus we see that the State would have to 
iceuse 542 additional persons in order for 
[very drug store to employ two pharmacists. 
)bviously this is neither practical nor, for 
ihat matter, possible. Since all of the 652 
jtores could not get an extra prescriptionist, 
ven if they could afford to, it follows that 
"he Board could uot force some stores and 
ot all to do so. It has been suggested that 
bme clause might be added to the Pharmacy 
.ct stipulating that stores in towns of more 
ian 10,000 people must keep a registered 
harmacist on duty every moment the store 
s open, but this provision could only be 
nacted into law on the grounds of protect- 
lg the public, and it would be hard to con- 
ince a legislator that city people should be 
rotected and village folks be expected to 
>ok out for themselves. 

To our minds the only practical thing the 
oard could do would be to insist that when 

e one man in one-man drug stores is out 

that he should put up in a prominent place 
in the store some sort of framed notice, 
easily read, to the effect that the pharmacist 
was temporarily absent and that until his 
return no poisons or prescriptions could be 
dispensed. This would work no hardship on 
such a store and would serve better to pro- 
tect the public. 

If anything more satisfactory than this 
can be done, Ave simply do not know what it 
is. Can some of o\ir readers suggest a solu-

An Emergency Exists 

Almost no response met the editorial last month about the grave importar 
of paying dues. The situation in respect to the Association's slim ba: 
balance remains unchanged, therefore. 

It is perhaps natural for members to feel that every other bill they 0' 
should be paid before dues. But a thought worth considering now is tt 
if more dues payments do not come in before the Legislature meets that mt 
bills of other sorts may have to be paid! If, because the Association cam 
do effective work without funds, more taxes are levied that must be paid 
nothing else is paid, the membership will then be "out of pocket" by i 
paying at least a part of what they owe for dues. 

It is impossible to say how much money North Carolina druggists hfij 
saved because of the legislative fight that the Association made two ye; 
ago. The amount goes into the thousands of dollars. This is a stateml 
of fact that can easily be proved. The question arises : Can the Associati 
do the same kind of work again this time ? It can with reasonable f unc 
it cannot with the meagre funds now on hand. The only place where t 
money can come from is from dues payments. 

This has to be our last word on the subject. The next issue will app< 
too late for an appeal to be of help. We beg you, therefore, to send 
treasurer a check, even if it can only be for a fraction of what you owe.

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


tacted into law, then it strikes us that 
•uggists ought to get behind the one they 
)ject to least. 

To our way of thinking a general sales 
x that will average about one per cent. 
1 total annual sales and apply to every- 
ing is more certain of raising sufficient 
seessary revenue and is less objectionable 
an a ten per cent, tax on so-called "lux- 
lies." (The recent experience of the Fed- 
al Government proves this statement.) A 
meral sales tax does not single out a par- 
nlar class of retailer to bear the whole 
irden, as does the luxury tax, but spreads 
e evil thinly over all classes alike. The 
count of the tax is not large enough to 
scourage sales or run business out of the 
ate or cause people to stop buying, as does 
e luxury tax, nor is it large enough to be 
hardship for poor people. Separate sales 
cords do not have to be kept ; revenue 
amps do not have to be affixed; people soon 
t accustomed to the small rate; and sales 
sistance on the part of customers does 
t have to be fought, conditions which do 
ply when a luxury tax is in effect. Fur- 
ermore, a druggist, for example, could 
lect certain items to bear the brunt of the 
x and not touch with a tax certain highly 
mpetitive items. The State would be in- 
herent about which merchandise is marked 
> in price because of the tax and which is 
ft unchanged. Its concern would be to 
e that one per cent, of annual gross sales 
as paid into its treasury in quarterly or 
mi-annual instalments. The customer 
auld not be reminded every time he pur- 
ased an item that he was paying a tax 
I it, as he would with a luxury tax. 
This is not a brief in favor of a sales tax 
any sort — we are constitutionally opposed 
this form of taxation — but it is instead 
1 argument in favor of a general instead 
: a limited tax if some sort is going to be 
issed whether or no. 

We suggest, therefore, that members of 
e Association write a confidential letter 

to the counsel of the organization, Mr. F. 
O. Bowman, and set forth their views on 
this question. The letter might be worded 
in some such fashion as this : 

"I d ° not object to any form of sales 

' ' If some form of sales tax seems to 
you certain of passage I prefer that you 

use your influence to have it be a j^ury 
sales tax. ' ' 

Mr. Bowman can then proceed more in- 
telligently to carry out the Avishes of the 

"Nuisance Taxes" Inadequate 

President Hoover in his recent message 
to Congress declared that "Some of the 
older revenues and some of the revenues 
provided under the act passed during the 
last session of Congress, particularly those 
generally referred to as the nuisance taxes, 
have not been as prolific of income as had 
been hoped" and that "further revenue is 
necessary in addition to the amount of re- 
ductions in expenditures recommended. ' ' He 
added that "many of the manufacturers' 
excise taxes upon selected industries not only 
failed to produce satisfactory revenue, but 
they are in many ways unjust and discrim- 
inatory. ' ' These include particularly the 10 
per cent tax on toilet articles and the heavy 
taxes on soft drinks and their ingredients. 
The President concluded as follows: "The 
time has come when, if the Government is to 
have an adequate basis of revenue to assure 
a balanced budget, this system of special 
manufacturers ' excise taxes should be ex- 
tended to cover practically all manufacturers 
at a uniform rate, except necessary food and 
possibly some grades of clothing. ' ' Those 
who favor a general manufacturers ' excise 
tax at a low rate as a substitute for the 
existing discriminatory and confiscatory 
taxes limited to a few articles will insist 
upon exempting medicines. 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


By C. C. Seawell, of Greensboro 

I have worked for chain stores and inde- 
pendents and I am not going to say which 
is the better. Bismark or Alexander Hamil- 
ton would have made splended chain store 
executives. Thomas Jefferson or Andrew 
Jackson would have given them effective 
competition as independents. 

The major phase of chain stores was one 
of the products of a kind of mass hyp- 
notism or money madness which during and 
after the world war spread through the coun- 
try like a virus. Men dreamed dreams of 
wealth and power. The devil, "Greed," got 
the world by the tail on a down-hill drag. 
There was a mighty striving — frenzy of in- 
dustry — of quantity production and of buy- 
ing and selling, which culminated in the col- 
lapse of real estate booms and stock mar- 
kets. The spirit of this feverish activity 
was apparent in the chain stores when I be- 
gan my schooling. There was an alertness, 
a snap-and-go, with a great rivalry between 
the different chains. There was talk of 
broken agreements among them and of re- 
prisals, as well as a fine scorn for the aver- 
age independent who would not clean up his 
store, who would not improve his service, 
who did not keep records or use system, 
and who was always "just out" of staple 
merchandise. I am using the past tense be- 
cause since that time the cock-sureness of 
captains of industry and finance and of their 
subordinates has been knocked into a cocked 
hat by the general depression, and it looks 
like the race shall be not to the swift nor to 
the strong, but to the faithful. 

The last paper I had the honor of read- 
ing before this Association was on system- 
atic buying and turnover. I mention this 
because turnover so vitally affects price- 
cutting as a policy. While many indepen- 
dents and local chains cut prices (most of 
the large chains use other appeals for busi- 
ness besides price) the chains are such con- 
sistent cutters that ' ' Chain Store ' ' and 
"Cut-Rate Store" are almost synonymous 
in the public mind. There seems to be an 
unwritten law against paying cut-rate stores 
full prices. I have had customers in chain 

stores say many times when full price wai 
asked, "Wiry that is no cheaper than I cai 
buy it anywhere. ' ' 

The customer also wonders and asks th 
independent why he cannot sell at ehaii 
store prices. The usual reply is " Oh ! that ' 
cut-rate," as if the customers care wha 
it is called so long as it saves them money! 
Of course, you know the chains buy mer| 
chandise less the jobbers discount. In addi| 
tion, as a result of declining prices, ther 
has been a multiplicity of price-juggling 
schemes such as free deals, advertising al 
lowances, unsold goods allowances, displa; 
allowances, demonstrations allowances, trans' 
portation allowances, and so on, which g 
to the big fellows because their orders ai 
large. This extra discount would seem to b 
taken up by depot maintenance costs, ac 
countants, filing clerks, inventory crews, did 
trict managers, window dressers and man 
others. The chains sell for cash and avoi 
charge losses which are an ever increasin 
burden to independents. They seldom offe 
delivery service, and when they do, no pro 
vision is made for it and the service is poo 
Chains carry a large assortment of variet 
and novelty merchandise which pay a hand 
some profit when the first asking price is ot 
tained. They also get "stung" on merchaj 
diss that will not move at all. 

Soda fountains and luncheonettes are pa^ 
ing departments in most chains, many i 
them doing one third of the store volun 
with inventories of a few hundred dolla: 
against as many thousand dollars in da 
and cigar departments. The cigar depax* 
ments are also profit departments in mo 
chains as they have a large volume of busj 
ness because such complete assortments 
smokers materials are carried and becau 
of expert selling. A few of the establish 
chains have their own goods brands in go 
demand and reap a splendid margin 
profit from these sales. 

The above, however, does not entire 
answer the customers question as to how t 

* This paper was presented at the 1932 meeti 
of the N. C. P. A. 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


iains sell so much more cheaply. As a 
atter of fact the chains do not make much 
oney on individual stores. The Harvard 
urvey of fifty-nine chains shows an aver- 
se profit of only about 1% net profit on 
slume. At that rate each store must do 
$100,000 business annually to make $1,000. 
I most of you, doing half that amount did 
ot make more than $83.00 a month even 
i these hard times, you would feel like 
jiving up one of your automobiles. Let us 
ly a chain owning one hundred stores only 
*akes an average of a thousand dollars net 
n each store; the bills are all paid, the 
elp, the rent, the taxes, and the stockholders 
ave a hundred thousand dollars to divide, 
hich is not so bad. 

When the druggist-merchant took the 
;and years ago that a preparation which 
pst $8.00 per dozen must be sold at $1.00 
ach (and he would die as the ermine dies 
efore he would take a cent less, although 
e would charge it to someone who did not 
ay him anything for it at all), and when 
e permitted cut-rate stores to come into his 
Kritory and undersell him until the cream 
f his business had been taken away, he be- 
an to look just a little bit stubborn. 
Some druggists decide that they have a 
xed expense of say twenty-five per cent, to 
o business and are easily misled into the 
elief that every item of merchandise sold 
mst yield a gross margin of something more 
ban that percentage to make a net profit 
ossible; also that an item sold at less than 
5% gross will show a net loss. Neither 
onclusion is necessarily correct. Hardly 
ny two items carry the same selling ex- 
ense. Your average expense rate may be 
5%, but your goods or rapid turnover 
all carry much less handling expense 
tian slow sellers. If you sell one item at a 
rofit of thirty cents, and your competitor 
alls ten such items at a profit of fifteen cents 
ach, you have made just thirty cents and he 
[as made $1.50. Almost any percentage of 
rofit will produce net gain provided the 
urnover is sufficient. 
When chains or independents sell merchan- 
ise as loss leaders, particularly if the item 
epresents quality, public confidence, and 
ood will developed by others, they become 
redatory price cutters. This practice has 

been indulged in by nearly all chains. They 
were wont to call deep-cut specials ' ' bait, ' ' 
and, of course, hoped to sell their profitable 
merchandise when customers came for the 

Suggesting sales of a companion nature, 
calling attention to displays and special 
values or recommending articles of merit to 
interested customers when the occasion arises 
is good salesmanship. Intelligent selling is 
welcomed by the public, but everywhere is 
seen an increasing dislike for persistent and 
crude attempts at substitution. More and 
more customers are asking for precise infor- 
mation about the goods they buy. Pressure 
selling as practiced in many chains has en- 
gendered distrust on the part of the public. 
They buy the bargains and leave the profit 
goods behind. In the desperate attempt of 
the chains to hold volume at any cost, prices 
have declined to the point where no profit is 
left and a kind of general agreement for a 
gradual raising of prices is in vogue. 

And now with some slight degree of sta- 
bilization of prices in sight a triple threat 
concern — the "Pine Board Storeie" — has 
appeared specializing entirely in easy selling 
merchandise of rapid turnover with every 
expense cut to the lowest and selling at 
prices that even the chains hesitate to meet. 
' ' He who lives by the sword must die by 
the sword." If "pine board" passes on 
"beaver board" will take its place. 

Absentee ownership and many rules of 
conduct for employees have prevented chain 
stores from making friends with the public. 
They frankly are out to make money and 
make that fact a little too apparent. Stamps 
are sold in vending machines and patrons 
are forced to use the pay telephones. Al- 
though the most valuable high-priced articles 
are placed on open display in easy access to 
the shop lifter, should a customer step be- 
hind the counter for any reason the entire 
store personnel would register panic. In 
the chain with which I am most familiar 
there was a strict rule against a pharmacist 
administering emergency first-aid such as 
bandaging or applying an antiseptic to a 
minor wound. 

Chain executives are, of course, aware of 
their handicaps and they know that live in-

The Legislative Situation 

The 1933 session of the General Assembly 
which convenes on Wednesday of this week, 
January 4th, and not the 7th the date erro- 
neously given for its convening in this sec- 
tion last month, will be confronted with as 
many, if not more, problems to solve and 
situations to remedy, as any Legislature in 
the history of our State. Its big task, how- 
ever, will be that of ' ' balancing the State 's 
Budget ' '. 

Assuming that the Legislature will carry 
out the pledge to which more than ninety 
per cent of the members of both the House 
and the Senate are committed, to remove the 
15-cent ad valorem tax, now levied by the 
Counties for State purposes in maintaining 
the constitutional six-months school term, 
there will be added to the current operating 
deficit of the State government some four to 
six million dollars annually another four 
million dollars. Therefore, unless a drastic 
reduction is made in the State 's operating 
expenses, together with a lopping off of 
many of the State 's activities, neither of 
which is likely to be accomplished to any 
appreciable extent, it will be necessary for 
the Legislature to provide not less than eight 
million dollars, perhaps more, of additional 
revenue each year. The question is : From 
what source or sources is this enormous 
amount of additional revenue to come? 

It is the opinion of many who have made 
a study of the financial affairs of the State 
that the only remaining source of taxation 
which will produce the revenue needed to 
enable the State to carry on its operations 
on the basis of the expenditures of the last 
fiscal year, or even on the basis of the pres- 
ent year, is a sales tax. And, there are many 
who predict the passage of a sales tax in 
some form soon after the Legislature con- 
venes. It is certain that several sales tax 
bills will be submitted to the Legislature 
for passage. These different proposals will 
embody the sales tax plans that have been 
employed by other States, including the Gen- 
eral Sales Tax Law of 2 per cent adopted 
last year by the State of Mississippi; the 
General Eetail Sales Tax Law of 1 per cent 
adopted as an emergency measure for a 
period of six months by the State of Penn- 

sylvania, and, also, the so-called Luxury Ta 
proposal copied after the tax plan employe 
by the State of South Carolina for seven 
years. Nor, is it unlikely that a tax br 
will be submitted including a retail sales ta! 
levy together with some of the so-called lu: 
ury tax levies. In fact, it has been suj! 
gested that both will be required to produ< 
the revenue needed. 

On the other hand, there is another grou 
who likewise have studied the fiscal affai 
of the State and who hold steadfastly to tlj 
proposition that sales tax legislation is n> 
the proper solution of the problem, mar 
taining that it is possible to balance the bu<j 
get without the adoption of a sales tax <i 
any kind. Necessarily, this position presu; 
poses effecting economies and the slashing « 
expenditures that appear impossible of a 
eomplishment at this time. 

The position of our organization with 
spect to a sales tax is well known. Mo ; 
than once it has gone on record flatly again 
the adoption of either a retail sales tax 
the so-called luxury tax plan. Should t 
Legislature, however, determine upon 
sales tax method of producing the ad( 
tional revenue needed, we feel that the foi 
adopted should apply alike to all retaile 
without exemption as to class or amount 
business done. To that end we shall fig| 
with all our energy. We ask for no spec 
privileges. On the contrary we simply a 
to be placed on the same basis as other i 

Association headquarters will be est 
lished at the Sir Walter Hotel upon the cd 
veiling of the Legislature and will be mai 
tained throughout the session. The writ 
will attend every legislative meeting, scru 
nize every bill introduced, and will ad 
the druggists of the State concerning 
proposals submitted affecting them. Evt 
druggist in the State is requested to expr<J 
his views upon all these propositions, 
letter or telegram will be welcomed at

All Over the State 

M. J. Leimkuhler, Reporter 

Saunders Drug Store of Wilmington has 
opened a second store with Mr. W. M. K. 
Bender in charge. The pharmacy is in the 
Brooklyn section of the city. 

The Winstead Drug Co., of Elm City, has 
been purchased by Mr. and Mrs. John L. 
Dixon of that town. The store is being 
operated as the Dixon Drug Co. with Mr. 
C. W. Bynum, formerly with the Whelan 
Drug Co., of Durham, in charge. The firm 
has been incorporated with an authorized 
capital stock of $25,000, and subscribed 
stock, $1,500 by Nellie E. Dixon, John L. 
Dixon and Ruby Braswell, of Elm City. 

Mr. E. C. Adams of the former Kennedy 
Drug Co., of Gastonia, has bought the store 
and changed the name to Kennedy's, Inc. 

Friends will regret to learn of the death 
of Mrs. W. H. Adair in Baltimore on De- 
cember 8. She was well known to many 
Journal readers as her husband was con- 
nected with Eckerd 's in Durham and Wal- 
green 's in Winston-Salem up to a short 
time ago. 

Messrs. W. R. Lane and J. C Godwin 
have purchased the Brooklyn Drug Co. in 
Wilmington. A charter of incorporation 
has been applied for in the name of Brook- 
lyn Pharmacy. Mr. Lane was formerly em- 
ployed as head clerk for the Brooklyn Drug 
Co. while Mr. Godwin is in the building 
supply business in Wilmington. Mr. C. R. 
Hargett, of Ahoskie, formerly of Whelan 's 
at Durham, is in charge of the prescription 

Mr. A. P. Turnmyre has purchased the 
Mount Airy Drug Co. in Mount Airy chang- 
ing the name to Turnmyre 's Drug Store. 

During the fall the Windsor Pharmacy of 
Windsor made extensive improvements which 
greatly improve the pharmacy. 

Mr. J. C. Spurrier, for some time the pro- 
prietor of the Jacobs Pharmacy in Gastonia, 
has purchased the Durham Pharmacy in the 
same city and combined the two stores. The 
name of the new firm is the Central Drug 
Co. Mr. J. E. Brison, formerly associated 
with the Kennedy Drug Co., is in charge of 
the prescription department. 

We regret to report that Mr. John Mc- 
Millan, of Lumberton, is quite ill in the 
Lumberton Hospital. 

News from Eastern Carolina 

F. L. Bundy, Reporter 

Friends of Mr. W. Prentice O'Neal, of 
Belhaven, are congratulating him — the 
reason : a young daughter recently arrived at 
his home! 

The reporter was in Elizabeth City the 
other day in the drug store of Overman and 
Stevenson when a colored woman came in 
and wanted some of "dis here electric 
acid. ' 7 Mr. Stevenson supplied lactic acid 
and the customer went out smiling. 

Mr. Wm. R. Matthews, of Wilson, re- 
cently heard from his son, "Bill," who has 
been with the Peoples Drug Store in Wash- 
ington, D. C. for some time. "Bill" is 
getting on fine and sends his regards to all 
his North Carolina friends. 

H. B. Home and Sons, of Fayetteville, 
have just installed a new eighteen foot soda 

Mr. C. P. Mitchell, of Burlington, Avas a 
recent visitor to the Capital City. 

Mr. J. P. Barbour, recently drove down 
to the coast, got up early the next morning, 
shot the bag limit of duck and geese, and 
was back in Burlington for lunch. Mr. 
Barbour evidently is as good at shooting 
and driving as he is at rolling pills. 

Mr. W. T. Andrews, of Goldsboro, has 
been having some fine duck shooting at his 
club house on New River near Jacksonville.

miles from town and is now a commuter. 

The Executive Committee Meets 

President A. C. Cecil called a meeting of 
the Executive Committee of the Association 
in Chapel Hill on the morning of December 
14. The Committee discussed with concern 
the threatened deficit in the Association 
treasury and talked over at length legislative 
matters with which the Association will 
shortly be concerned. Mr. J. P. Stowe, of 
Charlotte, was elected Local Secretary for 
the 1933 meeting. The Hotel Charlotte was 
selected as convention headquarters and 
June 20-22 were fixed as the dates for the 

General News Items 

The Journal takes pleasure in welcoming 
into membership in the N.C.P.A. Messrs. J. 
C. Harris, of the West Side Pharmacy, of 
Durham, and J. M. Hutchinson, of Cros- 
land's, Inc., of Charlotte. 

Mr. R. S. Mills, formerly with Tainter's 
of Marion, is now located in Princeton, W. 
Va., with the Mercer Drug Store. 

Dizor 's Drug Store, located on the corner 
of Bloodworth and Lane Sts., Ealeigh, was 
entered and robbed one night not long ago. 
Entrance to the store was gained through a 
skylight and a quantity of cigarettes and 
candy was found missing when clerks took 
an inventory of the loss. A few weeks 
earlier the store Avas entered, the robbers 
employing an unique method to get in. A 
piece of paper was pasted over a portion 
of the glass front door and a rock then was 
used in breaking the glass which was pre- 
vented by the paper from falling to the 
sidewalk and making a noise. 

We understand the name of the Marshall 
Pharmacy has been changed to the Roberts 
Pharmacy. Mr. Hubert Roberts is the pro-

The December issue of the Southeastern 
Drug Journal carries a photograph and bio- 
graphical sketch of Mr. R. H. Milton, for- 
merly a registered druggist of Albemarle, 
but for the past several years traveling rep- 
resentative in the state of Georgia for the 
Norwich Pharmacal Co. with headquarters 
in Atlanta. 

Burglars took possession of the town of 
Whitakers on the night of December 1st 
and looted six of the leading business firms. 
Burnett's Drug Store was the heaviest loser 
in actual cash, $200 being taken. The thieves 
entered each store by prying open the front 
door. The safe in the drug store was blown 
open and its contents rifled. Pouring a fruit 
preparation into a five gallon container of 
ice cream, the robbers made a sundae and ate 
heartily. Nothing like making one 's self 
perfectly at home ! 

We understand that the Middlesex Drug 
Co. has been moved to South Rocky Mount. 

The Library of the School of Phar- 
macy at the State University is very 
anxious to secure a copy of the Eighth 
Edition United States Pharmacopoeia 
(1900). We feel sure that some of 
the older JOURNAL readers have a 
copy and the Library would be most 
grateful for the gift of this volume. A 
suitable gift plate will be inscribed in 
the book showing the name of the 
donor. Won't you look around, gentle 
reader, and see if you can help? 

Dr. E. V. Zoeller writes us that he recently 
paid a visit to Mr. and Mrs. R. E. L. Cook, 
of Tarboro, who are confined to Rex Hos- 
pital, Raleigh, following a serious auto- 
mobile accident. Both of them were pain 
fully injured, Mr. Cook having his knee cap 
shattered with prospects of a long period in 
the hospital and slow recovery after being 
released. Mrs. Cook had no bones broken, 
but ligaments and muscles were so severely 
stretched that she still finds it very painful 
to move around. 

Hicks Drug Store is a new pharmacy for 
G'oldsboro, located at the corner of Center 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


and Walnut Sts. Mr. J. E. F. Hicks, for 
several years a member of the firm of Hicks 
and Hawley, is the proprietor. 

We understand that the name of the Farm- 
ville Drug Company, of Farmville, has been 
changed to the City Drug Store. 

Dr. E. V. Zoeller has completed the re- 
decoration of his store and installed a new 
soda fountain. 

Mr. John A. Goode, of Asheville, presi- 
dent of the National Association of Retail 
Druggists, has been invited to address the 
■New York Pharmaceutical Conference, 
which will hold its fifth annual convention 
at the Hotel Pennsylvania on January 18- 

The Wake County Board of Health on 
December 12 voted to permit the substitution 
of glasses for paper eups at drug stores and 
other fountain places in Wake County pro- 
dded the glasses are sterilized in boiling 
water and exposed to dry heat of 300° 
Fahrenheit, and provided the paper cups 
used in curb service are carefully collected. 
In addition the ordinance requires ' ' that all 
irug stores and soda fountains shall be in- 
spected and rated by the Wake County 
Health Department regularly. ' ' 

We understand that Mr. R. G. Scruggs 
will open a new drug store at 23 Haywood 
St., Asheville. 

The Hickory Daily Becord recently car- 
ried in its section, "At Helm in Hickory," 
a lengthy sketch and photograph of Mr. P. 
J. Suttlemyre, well known druggist, paying 
tribute to the part he has paid in the de- 
velopment of the town and to his service as 
a public spirited citizen. 

Notes from the State University 

The University acknowledges with ap- 
preciation the gift of a collection of old 
bottles for the museum from the drug store 
;of Paul Webb and Son in Shelby. 

The Rho Chi honorary fraternity at the 
University has very generously granted a 
loan fund from which deserving phar- 
macy students may secure financial help to

At a general assembly of all students in 
the School of Pharmacy on December 14 
Dean J. G. Beard presented to Mr. H. E. 
Whiteley, of Greensboro, a certificate of 
membership in the A. Ph. A., awarded by the 
Rho Chi fraternity to the student in the sec- 
ond year class who made the highest average 
in his freshman year. 


Friends will be interested in learning of 
the marriage of Miss Annie Van Dyke and 
Mr. Kelly William Huss, both of Cherryville, 
at the bride 's home on November 17. Mr. 
Huss attended the State University where he 
made an enviable record. He graduated with 
the degree of B.S. in Pharmacy in 1931, 
winning the Lehn and Fink medal. During 
his senior year he served as student assistant 
in the laboratories. He was a member of 
Rho Chi. Since his graduation he has been 
associated with the Nissen Drug Co. in 

The Journal takes pleasure in announcing 
the marriage of Miss Hazel Ray, of Elkin, 
and Mr. John Alton Weaver, of Olin, in 
Winston-Salem on November 2. Mr. Weaver 
graduated from the State University School 
of Pharmacy in 1931. He was a member 
of the Rho Chi fraternity. Since graduation 
he has been connected Avith the Nissen Drug 
Co. in Winston-Salem. 

A recent wedding that came as a surprise 
to many friends was that of Mrs. Mary Gid- 
dens Gorsline, of Tampa, Fla., and Mr. 
Jefferson Reeves, of Waynesville. Mr. Reeves 
graduated from the State University in 
1923 and since that time has been associated 
with his father in the drug business. His 
bride is a graduate of the English Classic 
School in Tampa as well as "The Castle" 
at Tarrytown-on-the-Hudson. The young 
couple are making their home in the Cleve-

Of unusual interest is the announcement 
of the marriage of Miss Gladys Angel and 
Mr. John Grover Beard, Dean of The School 
of Pharmacy at the State University, at 
Liberty, New York, on December 27. The 
ceremony took place at the home of Judge

and Mrs. Sidney F. Foster, the latter a sister 
of the bride, and the service was performed 
by Dr. Edgar Jones, rector of Christ Church, 
of Plymouth, Mass., and a brother-in-law of 
the bride. No formal invitations or announce- 
ments were issued. Mrs. Beard is a gradu- 
ate of Wellesley College as well as Columbia 
University, and is now assistant professor 
of physical education at the University of 
North Carolina. The Journal joins hundreds 
of friends in wishing for Dean and Mrs. 
Beard a long and happy wedded life. 


Mr. Haywood P. Watson, Sr., 86 years of 
age, and for sixty-five years a prominent 
druggist of Lexington and Winston-Salem, 
died of a heart attack at the home of his 
daughter, Mrs. T. C. Hinkle, on the night 
of November 17. Mr. Watson was a Con- 
federate veteran of pioneer stock and com- 
mander of the Norfleet camp, U. C. V. at 
Winston-Salem. He was one of several trav- 
eling salesmen to sell Dr. V. 0. Thompson 
the goods for his first store in Winston- 
Salem. He later became associated with 
the store after it had been taken over by 
Mr. P. A. Thompson, a son of Dr. Thompson. 
He was licensed as a pharmacist in 1881 
and was a charter member of the N. C. P. A., 
retaining his membership for many years. 
He was in active business until about a year 

Mr. Niel Sifly Avinger, aged 45, well 
known Jacksonville, Fla., druggist, died sud- 
denly at his home November 25, apparently 
from a heart attack. For several years Mr. 
Avinger lived in Rocky Mount where he was 
connected with May and Gorham. He was a 
native of Orangeburg, S. C, and had lived 
in Jacksonville for thirteen years.

Read the Legal Section 

On another page in this issue will be 
found a statement concerning the happen- 
ings in the Legislature that affect the drug 
business in this State and also a report of 
what the Executive and Legislative Com- 
mittees of the Association decide upon as 
wise plans to pursue in furthering or oppos- 
ing various measures that have been or will 
be introduced. Since this information will 
not be available before the Editorial Section 
must go to press we are unable to offer any 
comments or interpretation. 

Sad But True 

The Association is in the midst of a battle 
to protect the rights of its membership from 
thoughtless legislation that would jeopard- 
ize the commercial safety of drug stores if 
the measures were permitted to be passed. 
It is hardly an exaggeration to say that al- 
most every day some member of the Gen- 
eral Assembly is dissuaded from offering a 
bill that -would in some fashion operate to the 
harm of pharmacy. In the very nature of 
things no publicity is given this sort of 
thing, and yet if the Association were in- 
active some of these measures would reach 
the statute books with harmful effects. Only 
the proposals that are actually aired in the 
press are known about. If everything of this 
sort were known about to druggists they 
would realize the value of paying dues, 
strengthening the organization, and making 
it of even greater usefulness. Unfortunately 
this publicity canot be given, and the Asso- 
ciation struggles along doing a fine but 
oftentimes an unappreciated job. There is 
tragic humor in the fact that some of the 
Association's greatest knockers are persons 
who contribute no dues, fail to offer per- 
sonal help that would cost nothing, but who 
sit at home saying ''Why don't those birds 
in the Association do something? 

All right, we'll bite: "Why don't they? 

Telling the Doctor About It 

The Academy of Pharmacy in Cleveland 
Ohio, is doing a piece of work that we wis 
could be duplicated by some pharmaceutic, 
organization in North Carolina. It sends 
each physician in Cleveland a well prepare 
brief, persuasive monthly letter that is co: 
cerned each time with a single subject th: 
cannot help but interest any good physicia" 
We have copies of a number of these lette: 
before us as we write. One of them star' 
off like this : 
"Dear Doctor : 

"Is a prescription necessary?" 
There follows about six short paragraph 
that explain the advantages to the doctor i 
writing prescriptions instead of telling tl 
patient to go somewhere and buy so and | 
The arguments are convincing and cannj 
help but impress. 

Another letter lists in easily readable for 1 
the comparative costs of a dozen pi'opii 
tary products and the same number of equi 
alent U. S. P. drugs. A startling differen 
in the cost is shown and a single senten 
suggests that the saving secured to tl 
patient leaves the latter in a better posits 
to pay the doctor his own bill. 

One letter is devoted to the false econon 
of doctors who dispense their own drug 
The same letter points to the danger of bu 1 
ing cheap drugs from unknown manufal 
turers whose appeal is one of price and nl 
of quality. 

Another offers six different prescription 
for iron preparations or compounds thj 
have been endorsed by the American Medid 

These are but samples of a steady strea 
of letters that are constantly going from t 
Academy to the physicians of the same ten 
tory. They are written in a purely sugge 
tive and entirely tactful style. The statio 1

The Principles of Business Practice in a Small Town Drug Store 

By E. C. Daniel, of Zebulon 

(This paper was presented at the 1932 meeting of the N. C. P. A. as a part of the program of 
ae Committee on the Principles of Business Practice. Mr. Daniel was a member of the Committee.) 

The small town druggist deals always and 
nly with individuals. He does not do 
usiness with the people of his community 
s a whole, but with the persons of the com- 
lunity as individuals. No great street 
rowd pushes past his door; no mob of 
loppers invades his store in search of bar- 
ains. Instead, the grocer next door, the 
idy down the street, his friends, people 
■horn he knows come in by ones and twos 
\ consult him about their modest needs. 

Any principle of business practice which 
le small town drug store manager adopts 
i necessarily influenced by these consider- 

First of all, his relation with his eus- 
raiers is one of a personal nature. The 
fnall town druggist is as much a diplomat 
3 anything else. He must always show a 
riendly interest and concern for the prob- 
ms of his customers. They expect advice 
nd help from him. Upon his ability to give 
lese things rests much of his success as a 

A trip to a small town drug store is some- 
hat in the nature of a friendly visit. So, 
[ie customer must be treated as a guest, 
he store must be made comfortable and in- 
jting to him. Its facilities must be placed 
mipletely at his disposal. From the clerks 
ie customer expects smiling courtesy and 

genuine expression of friendly interest. 
9 he is shown these special considerations 
pon every visit he will continue to come 

A large proportion of a drug store 's 
■ade always comes from women. To secure 
ad hold the patronage of women in a small 
>wn it is necessary to give them more than 
sual attention. It is important always to 
iter to their especial wants and to show 
articularly courteous interest in their visits. 
f women learn that the druggist is ready 
) fill special orders and to give extra ser- 

ce, they will patronize him frequently and 
aavily. Extraordinary courtesy in filling 

ivial orders will bring women back when 

they want more expensive items. A com- 
plete stock of goods demanded by women in 
a clean, orderly display will influence them 
always to think first of the drug store. 

The small town druggist must make trad- 
ing in his store more or less of a habit with 
the townspeople. To this end he finds it 
profitable to encourage the children of the 
town to come to his store for their candy and 
ice cream. The children appreciate occasional 
gifts from the soda fountain and enjoy 
being shown the same consideration as older 
people. Once in the habit of trading in 
your store, they will grow up to be good 

In the average small town, the school plays 
an important part in the community life. 
It is important to secure the patronage of 
the school teachers, since they can influence 
their pupils to buy their school supplies from 
you. In addition, the very presence of the 
teachers in your store attracts customers, 
especially if they happen to be good look- 
ing. It is a good policy to encourage their 
visits by writing them letters upon their 
arrival in town, offering them your services 
in every possible way, inviting them to make 
your store their headquarters, and telling 
them of the advantages which trading with 
your store offers. A courteous welcome and 
a friendly offer of assistance on their first 
visit will bring them, or any other new- 
comer, back to your store frequently. 

In establishing friendly relations 'with his 
clientele, it is often necessary for the small 
town druggist to go outside his regular line 
of business. Whenever possible, he should 
take part in community activities and offer 
his help in civic enterprises. Whenever and 
wherever he meets potential customers out- 
side his store, he should establish himself as 
their friend. Small town people will trade 
with their friends. 

Back in his store, the druggist must re- 
member that he is dealing with a neighbor. 
Any word or act that sends a customer out 
with a smile builds up good will that will 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

bring thfet customer back for his next bottle 
of cough syrup or dose of calomel. 

In building up and replenishing his stock, 
the small town druggist again has to con- 
sider the nature of his relation with his 
customers. From experience, he learns that 
there are certain products which have a 
ready and constant sale in the small town. 
These staples he must keep on hand in suffi- 
cient quantities at all times. Some of these 
things are out-moded remedies and items 
which he ordinarily would not carry. How- 
ever, he finds it necessary to stock every 
article for which there is a demand. 

Of course, this means that the store must 
carry a full and complete stock. Moreover, 
it usually means that the store must carry 
a number of burdensome and often unprofit- 
able sidelines, goods which the customers ex- 
pect to find in the store and which attract 
them there. The small town druggist is 
forced to carry these sidelines for the sake 
of retaining his customers. At the same 
time the buyer has to be careful not to over- 
stock on items which move slowly but surely. 
He must be wary of large deals, even though 
they mean considerable savings in cost. 

It is, further, to the advantage of the 
druggist doing a small volume of business 
to buy in small quantities in order to keep 
his bills paid more easily and to take all 
possible cash discounts. These discounts 
sometimes offset the losses incurred by the 
inability to buy large deals. It is also ad- 
vantageous to buy from as small a group 
of jobbers as possible. It is easier to keep 
an accurate check on expenditures and ac- 
counts when business is transacted with only 
a few houses. Wholesale concerns which 
are favored with such a yearly volume of 
business from small buyers should be en- 
couraged to give annual discounts for quan- 
tity as a reward for the preference they 
are given. 

As a rule, the small town drug store never 
has more than two calls per day for any 
product other than the tried and tested home 
remedies of long standing. Stock should be 
turned over at least four times a year when 
the volume is business is small ; it is im- 
possible to do this with large orders. Con- 
sequently, the druggist finds it necessary to 

buy in small lots from nearby wholesaler: 
who can supply the demands of his custo 
mers on short notice. Except in emergency 
cases, small town people within easy reacl 
of a delivery truck are willing to wait i 
few hours for their orders. 

In summary, the small town druggist mus 
determine the wants of his customers am 
endeavor to fill their orders as promptly a, 
possible without overstocking his store. 

The success with which the introduction 
of new products is met depends almost en 
tirely upon the ability of the salesman ti 
convince the individual customer of th; 
product's value. New ideas always reac ; 
the small town some months after they ari 
accepted in the cities. Consequently, th 
drug merchant has to be wary of product 
with which his trade is unfamiliar. Hi 
customers are usually reluctant to substitul| 
a new product for an old one which the. 
have found reliable. They depend almosl 
entirely upon their druggist's recommendt 
tion. He is likely to endanger his reputaj 
tion by recommending new products whie, 
are of unproven value. 

Here, again, is another argument in favfl 
of buying from nearby wholesalers : If th 
druggist buys a small quantity of some procj 
uct which does not sell in his territory, th 
wholesaler is willing to take up the slov 
moving goods. On the other hand, if th 
new product sells well, the wholesaler 
always near at hand to supply addition; 
stock on short notice. 

Frequently, it is possible for the druggh, 
to introduce some novelty with considerab 
success. But the safest method is to suppl 
the popular demand after the vogue hf 
gotten fully underway. By looking out car 
fully for the beginnings of such vogue 
the druggist can often dispose rapidly < 
small quantities of novelty goods or ne 

In final analysis, then, the volume of sab 
in the small town store depends upon tfl 
druggist's relation with his customers, h, 
ability to estimate their wants and requiri 
ments, and the establishment of a buyin 
system to supply these wants quickly ar 
adequately without overstocking. 

Continuing, the personal relationship 1

.uences the small town druggist 's credit and 

rice policies. In years past, merchants in 

he agricultural towns of Eastern North 

larolina have lost considerably by the so- 

alled "time" system of credit to farmers. 

r nder this system, farmers were allowed to 

ave goods upon their promise to pay their 

ccount in the fall when they sold their 

roduce. It is no longer safe to follow this 

ractice. At the same time, the small town 

rug store finds it necessary to do a certain 

nail amount of credit business in order to 

jtain its customers. It is satisfactory and 

ften desirable to extend credit for one 

onth to reliable persons whom the druggist 

aovvs to be dependable. It is best, however, 

> avoid the "time" system entirely. The 

Irofits of this policy are, at present, small 

id the possible losses great. In some cases, 

me merchants who are supplying certain 

irmers are willing to assume the responsi- 

lility for their drug bills also. By this plan, 

lie time merchant pays the farmer's bill 

iith a discount each month and then collects 

le gross total from him in the fall. This 

Ian involves some small loss in discounts 

id should not be practiced except when ab- 

*lutely necessary. From his close personal 

mtact with his customers, the small town 

uggist usually know r s which of them can be 

;pended upon to meet their obligations. To 

lese people alone should he extend short- 

me credit, that privilege to be forfeited 

ion failure to pay bills regularly. 

Whenever possible, the small town drug- 

st should give his customers the benefit of 

vings in cost. At the same time, he 

:Ould be careful not to slash his prices 

o radically or too hurriedly, for ouce a 

w price is established in the minds of his 

ade it is never forgotten. This is also an 

gument in favor of a one-price policy. 

ews of a price cut allowed to one man 

reads quickly to all the store's customers. 

cut should never be given to one unless 

can be safely extended to all. Credit 

istorners should be made to pay for their 

ecial privileges by giving full price for 

ery article. 

Here, again, the small town druggist must 
e his discretion in applying his personal 
lowledge of his customers ' demands. He 

whaPspr ic es^heyjjure 
; much rape th/t newT^ 

can easily determine 
willing to pay and how- 
to meet their obligations. Small t6wn people 
will usually pay more attention to counteousV^ - 
friendly service than they will to price. 
Yet they expect their friend, the druggist?, 
to share his prosperity with them either by 
allowing them small discounts or by ex- 
changing patronage with them. 

At all times, the small town druggist finds 
it to his advantage to be on friendly terms 
with the doctors of the town. Upon their 
cooperation depends the success of his pre- 
scription department. The druggist's rela- 
tion with the doctor is even more close than 
that with the customer. The prescription 
department of his store should be stocked 
with every item that the local doctors might 
call for in their prescriptions. The doctors 
should be given full use of every convenience 
and facility that the drug store affords. In 
every possible way, the druggist should as- 
sist the doctor in receiving calls, meeting 
patients, filling emergency orders, preparing 
prescriptions quickly, carefully and neatly, 
etc. The drug store should be made the 
doctor 's field headquarters. 

In his relations with his customers, the 
druggist should be careful not to encroach 
upon the doctor 's business. In a small 
town it is frequently necessary in emergency 
cases for the druggist to take the place of a 
doctor who is far out in the country on a 
call. Quite often the druggist is asked by 
his customers, who consider him as a friend 
and adviser, to recommend some simple 
remedy. It is difficult for the druggist to 
avoid giving this information, but he should 
do so only when he does not thereby damage 
the business of the doctor. Only when he is 
sure that the customer would not or could 
not see the doctor should he venture to give 
such information. 

Business in a small town can always be 
made more pleasant and actually more profit- 
able by establishing friendly relations with 
your competitors. It is to your advantage 
and theirs also to be able to exchange small 
items on short notice, to reach agreements 
on credit policies, prices, working hours, 
holiday schedules, etc. In a small tow T n, 
your competitor is also your friend and 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

neighbor. The people of the community will 
notice and appreciate your efforts to keep 
on friendly terms with him. In this regard 
also, the personal relationship plays an im- 
portant part in your business. 

In order to carry out the policy of per- 
sonal relations above outlined it is essential 
that the druggist have the cooperation of his 
sales force. He must be sure that his sales- 
men are in complete sympathy with his pro- 
gram and are willing to carry- it out. Fre- ' 
quent talks with them are exceedingly 
worthwhile in encouraging their help in 
making the store attractive, in determining 
the needs of the customers, in giving courte- 
ous, efficient service, in keeping the stock 
in order, in building up friendships with 
the doctors, and in establishing satisfactory 
contacts with one's competitors. On these 
matters, the advice of the manager 's helpers 
is always valuable. 

In conclusion, the small town druggist's 
problems are purely personal ones, depend- 
ing upon his relations with his customers, 
his doctors, his competitors, and his clerks. 
He is more than a mere dispenser of drugs 
and sundries ; he is more than a professional 
man; he is nothing less than a student of 
human nature ; and, if he makes any money, 
he may be considered a genius. Yet, he 
should also be an astute and careful business 
man. The usual nature and size of his busi- 
ness demands that he make every sale pay 
a profit if he is to be successful. He must, 
without fail, keep a watchful eye on every 
department and every piece of stock in his 
store. In these times, he must cut clown his 
overhead to the absolute minimum. 

Even though his business depends largely 
upon personal relationships, he must still be 
as careful in conducting his business as is 
the druggist in the city. In fact, so much 
of his business depends upon attention to 
trivial details that he cannot afford to over- 
look anything that might endanger his sales. 
He must be constantly on the look-out for 
any feature of his merchandising policy, any 
defect in the appearance of his store, or any 
error on the part of his sales force that 
might lose him customers by the dozen. At 

the same time, he must be quick to adopt any 
new plan or policy, to stock any new prod 
uct, and to inaugurate any new service that 
will keep the patronage of his old customers 
and attract new ones to his store. 

The most common failing of a small town; 
drug store manager is to become so en 
grossed in his leisurely, neighborly fashion 
of doing business that he forgets that he is 
actually engaged in a hard dollars-and-cent£ 
contest to make profits exceed costs and tc 
minimize losses. To avoid careless mistakes 
and sloppiness in the conduct of his business 
the druggist should employ an orderly, regu| 
lar and comprehensive system of auditing 
and inventorying his resources and his stock 
Only by such a system can he avoid the pit 
falls of slipshod management. 

The principles of business practice abov 
set forth are the conclusions reached fron 
over twenty-five years' experience, a perio< 
of years which began with hard times anil 
saw the coming and going of prosperity int 
hard times again, in a town of 1000 people 
more or less. Having seen both sides of th 
picture, the author writes neither optimisti 
cally or pessimistically of his problems, bu 
simply records the results of an experienc 
which has been both bitter and sweet.

the first of the year.

"There are buyers who are slowing 
up the return of better business. There 
were stores whose Christmas sales fell 
off because they had no stock. 

There were buyers who were dis- 
appointed and children whose Christ- 
mas was spoiled by a narrow, short- 
sighted policy of the buyers or mer- 
chandise managers of many great 

' ' They must buy what we have. We 
will not buy new stock. ' ' That was 
the policy that many adopted— and 
they suffered because of that policy. 

Customers came — looked at shop- 
worn articles and bare shelves .and 
took their money away with them. 

One buyer is known to have said 
to a salesman — ' ' We have taken a 
licking this year and we are going 
to take all of it at once. We will 
buy nothing. ' ' 

Should the man with failing eyes: 
' ' One eye is gone. I will do nothing 
to protect the other ? ' ' Should a man 
with an injured foot say: "I will do 
nothing to save the leg?" 

Business is returning. The mer- 
chandisers must be ready to meet it. 
They must, at least, do nothing to 
check it. When a man or woman 
enters a store they come to make a 
purchase. If they carry nothing away 
with them, the store has lost money. 

— T.M.A.— 

The buyer who does not prepare for 
the customer by showing fresh, clean 
merchandise is a danger to the entire 
country. The buying public first see 
and then be sold. It will no longer 
pay for promises. 

When a salesman enters a business 
office he has more in mind than merely 
selling merchandise. He knows the 
needs of the establishment and wishes 
to supply that need. 

The buyer will do well to consult 
with his real friend, the salesman, and 
let him tell his story. 

Business cannot return until buying 
returns. Buying cannot return until 
the merchant offers what his custo- 
mers desire. The customers will not 
buy today what they refused to buy 
last year. It is not merely money 
that they desire to spend. They are 
seeking to buy satisfaction and that 
can only be had in fresh merchandise. 
Don't stand in the way of progress. 
Give the salesman a hearing and the 
customers a chance. ' ' — Copied.

The Budget Revenue Bill of 1933 

The Budget Revenue Bill of 1933— A Bill 
to be entitled An Act to Raise Revenue — pre- 
pared by the Director of the Budget and the 
Advisory Budget Commission, was submitted 
to the General Assembly on Monday evening, 
January 16, almost two weeks after the con- 
vening of this body. Contrary to what was 
expected by representatives of many of the 
interests affected, the proposed bill recom- 
mends increase after increase, ranging from 
20 per cent to 400 per cent, in a largo num- 
ber of the sections imposing license or privi- 
lege taxes particularly. The increases pro- 
posed in the list of Schedule B license taxes 
is estimated to yield between one and one- 
half to two million dollars in additional 
taxes, which will have to be paid by the 
druggists and other merchants of the State 
should they be adopted as submitted. 

Among other increases proposed and the 
one most vitally affecting our members is the 
proposal increasing the Merchants License 
Tax four hundred per cent. Section 164 of 
Schedule B, Revenue Act of 1933, levying 
the Merchants License Tax, changes mate- 
rially the brackets in the mercantile tax 
which appeared in the 1931 Revenue Act, 
and increases the rate of tax of one-tenth of 
one per cent on gross sales of retail mer- 
chants to four-tenths of one per cent. 

Although called a license tax, it is purely 
and simply a retail sales tax, and, in addi- 
tion, is one that must be paid by the retail 
merchants of the State, since it is impossible 
to pass on to the consumer a four-tenths of 
one per cent tax. 

Sub-section (f) of Section 164 of the 
proposed Act showing both the changes in 
the brackets and the tax rates proposed, 
follows : 

(f) Tax Imposed. 

The privilege or license tax imposed t 
this section shall be at the following rati 
for each six months or half-yearly period: 

When the total gross wholesale sales

or half-yearly period at each place whe

And at the rate of four-tenths of one per 
cent for each additional $5,000 in gross sales 
or each major fraction thereof. 

In this connection, except for one or two 
minor changes, the remaining ten or more 
sub-sections of the bill which deal with 
definitions, administrative provisions, etc., 
are identical with the same provisions of 
l the 1931 Revenue Act. 

Section 144 of the proposed Revenue Bill 
! imposing the tax on soda fountain operators 
carries the same schedule of taxes as pro- 
vided in the 1931 Revenue Act. Efforts have 
been made to get this section rewritten 
changing the present graduated tax based 
on population, either to a tax upon the num- 
ber of carbonated draft arms used at each 
fountain or basing the amount of tax to be 
paid on the gross business done. There was 
some intimation that one of these methods 
would be substituted for the present sched- 
ule of taxes. Instead, however, the section 
remains the same, and it is recommended 
that the rates be increased as much as 20 
per cent. A hearing has been arranged and 
we hope to secure a tax on soda fountains 
more equitable than the one now employed. 

Section 162 of the proposed Revenue Bill 
doubles the tax upon chain stores. The 
Revenue Act of 1931 imposed a tax of $50.00 
per store in excess of one, while the proposed 
bill imposes a tax of $100.00 on each store 
in excess of one. 

Sales Tax Bills Pending 

Thus far in the Legislative Session — the 
sixteenth legislative day — two sales tax bills 
only have been submitted to the Legislature, 
Senate Bill No. 4, introduced by Senator 
Clement of Salisbury, and Senate Bill No. 
86, introduced by Senator Hinsdale of Ra- 

The Clement Bill is a manuf acturers ' sales 
tax or production tax proposal. It would 
levy a tax of one-half of one per cent on all 
manufactured or fabricated products of 
every description, including business of 
utilities and public-service corporations, in- 
surance, banks, newspapers, exempting prod- 
ucts sold to the Government, taxes, build- 
ing and loan and certain non-sharing socie- 
ties, retail merchants, and the sum of $1,- 
800.00 annually, and is estimated to yield 
from eight to ten million dollars in revenue 

The Hinsdale Bill is a selected commodity 
tax measure, known as the Luxury Tax Bill, 
which comprises practically the same articles 
and at the same rates as the luxury tax bill 
submitted at the 1931 Legislature. This bill 
would place a tax of either 10 or 20 per 
cent on the following articles : manufactured 
tobacco products, playing cards, candy, gun 
shells, admissions, soft drinks, and cosmetics, 
and automotive vehicles and trailers at lower 
rates, all of which were in the 1931 bill 
which passed the House and failed by one 
vote to pass the Senate. Sugar is taxed at 
one cent per pound, and malt liquors having 
as much as 1 1-2 alcoholic content would bear 
a tax of 50 cents for each gallon in con- 
tainers, and in bottles the tax would be one 
cent for each five cents or fractional part 
of selling price. It is estimated by the 
author of the bill that it would yield $8,- 
000,000 in revenue annually. 

Both of these measures are now before the 
Finance Committee. Other sales tax pro- 
posals will no doubt be submitted. Hear- 
ings will be had and you will be notified.

cers of the Association are watching every 
development and will advise you when to

News from Eastern Carolina 
F. L. Bunbt, Reporter 

Mr. C. M. Andrews, of Burlington, is 
confined to Rainey Hospital, with a broken 
leg and shoulder as a result of being run 
over by an automobile Christmas night. Mr. 
Andrews was struck by an automobile as he 
was crossing a street in the business section 
in what was said to have been an unavoid- 
able accident. 

Wilson's Pharmacy, of Greensboro, has 
moved from 510 Summit Ave., to 818 E. 
Market St. 

Mr. and Mrs. A. C. Cecil, of High Point, 
and Mr. and Mrs. Lon D. Russell, of the 
Cecil-Russell Drug Co., of Greensboro, spent 
several days in New York City during the 
Christmas holidays and report a very en- 
joyable time. Returning home Mr. Cecil 
gave out the following to a reporter of the 
Greensboro Daily News: "Conditions in 
North Carolina are in general as good or 
even better than in New York and the 
metropolitan area. . . . Prices, generally 
speaking, are even lower in this part of the 
country than in retail stores of New York 
City." Mr. Cecil's formula for coming out 
of the depression is "for people to read- 
just their sights and shoot to make less 
money, to forget the 1915-1932 period, and 
settle back to a realization that present 
volume is normal. ' ' 

The Sunset Pharmacy, of Greensboro, was 
totally destroyed by fire just before Christ- 
mas. Mr. C L. Derrick, the proprietor, is 
rebuilding on the same site. 

Another proud father: "Jimmy Gates," 
of Greensboro ! A daughter, Winifred Ann, 
was born on December 18 at St. Leo's hos- 
pital. ' ' Jimmy ' ' is manager of the O. Henry 
Drug Store, No. 1 in Greensboro. 

General News Items 

Mr. L. M. McCombs, of Salisbury, who

Messrs. W. S. Crouch, of Leaksville, and 
Lee Roy Bell, of Pikeville, passed the No- 
vember examinations of the Virginia State 
Board of Pharmacy. 

Mr. H. E. Bolen, of Danville, Va., who 
has been in Portsmouth, Va., since the sum- 
mer of 1931, is now with the Walgreen Drug

Mr. J. A. Goode, prominent Asheville 
druggist, has been commissioned a colonel 
on the staff of Gov. Ruby Laff oon, of Ken- 1 
tueky, according to Associated Press dis- 
patches from Frankfort, Ky. 

We were delighted to have a letter from 
Mr. William Niestlie, of Wilmington, a few 
days ago and still more pleased to hear him 
say that he is improving from a long illness. 
Mr. Niestlie has always been a warm friend 
of the Journal and frequently contributes 
items to our news columns. 

Mr. and Mrs. T. H. Mayo, of G'oldsboro, 
celebrated their golden wedding anniversary 
at their home en Nov. 29. Mr. Mayo is a 
native of Washington, N. C, and Mrs. Mayo, 
was, before her marriage, Miss Minnie 
Pierce, of Greensboro. They have lived inl 
Goldsboro for about 20 years and are greatly 
beloved by the citizens of the town.

The Ealeigh Evening Times recently car- 
tied a photograph of Mr. C. M. Higgins, 
veteran druggist of Salisbury and Lexing- 
ton, with the following caption: "Pictured 
above is the estimable Dr. Charles M. Hig- 
gins, the House's Sergeant-at-arms, than

eral Assembly is a matter for the history 

The post office at Hamlet informs us that 
Mr. C. S. Mabry is now making his home 
at Norwood. 

"We understand that Ahrens Brothers, 
wholesale druggists of Wilmington, have 
moved their offices and stock of goods to the 
second floor of the building they have oc- 
cupied for a number of years. The lower 
floor is now occupied by an A. & P. store. 

Letters sent to Messrs. F. P. Stafford, of 
Greensboro, E. Driggers, of Winston-Salem, 
and J. V. Farrington, of Charlotte, have 
been returned unclaimed. If any one can 
furnish the correct addresses for these sub- 
scribers we shall appreciate the information. 

On or about February 1st the Whelan 
Drug Co. in Durham will reopen for business 
and will be in charge of Mr. C. W. Bynum, 
assisted by Mr. C. R. Hoggard. Both of 
these pharmacists were with this store be- 
fore it closed in the late fall. 

Journal readers will be distressed to 
learn that Mrs. F. W. Hancock, of Oxford, 
was injured in an automobile wreck just 
before the Christmas holidays, one of her 
arms being broken at the shoulder. She 
iwas taken to Brantwood hospital. Mrs. 
.Hancock and a party of relatives were re- 
turning from Henderson. When they neared 
Oxford their car collided head-on with one 
driven by an unidentified person who was on 
the wrong side of the road. The Oxford 
car was turned over and practically de- 
molished, but the party, with the exception 
of Mrs. Hancock, escaped with bruises only. 

Have you read the December issue of 
Eexall Ad-Yantages? You will be inter- 
ested in a three-page article entitled "No 
Worries, ' ' which was written by the editor 
of the magazine after an interview with 
Mr. P. J. Suttlemyre, of Hickory. The 
article tells of the successful business meth- 
ods used by Mr. Suttlemyre in his pharmacy, 
the Hickory Drug Co. The story is profuse- 
ly illustrated and carries a photograph of 
Mr. Suttlemyre as well as interior and ex- 
terior views of his drug store. 

The Journal, acknowledges with apprecia- 
tion an invitation from the senior class of 
the School of Pharmacy of Saint Johns Col-

We understand that Mr. J. Linwood Rob- 
inson has sold his drug store in Rutherford- 
ton, the Robinson Co., to Mr. B. P. Scruggs 
and Dr. F. W. H. Logan and is moving to 
Gadsden, Ala., where he will open the 
Robinson Drug Co. 

Work of renovating the vacant building at 
the corner of Main and Church Sts., Dur- 
ham, for occupancy by the L. and M. Drug 
store has begun. The store will be operated 
by Messrs. Tillman J. Mathes and Lee. 
The latter has been engaged in the drug 
business in Charlotte for some time. Mr. 
Mathes is the proprietor of the Paragon 
Pharmacy in Edgemont, which will be 
closed, Ave understand. The new site for 
many years was occupied by the Main St. 
Pharmacy but for a long period of time has 
been vacant. 

We Thank You! 

In the January issue of the Journal we 
carried a card from the Library of the State 
University asking for the gift of the 8th 
edition of the U. S. Pharmacopoeia. Almost 
by return mail Mr. B. W. Walker, of Rocky 
Mount, sent us a copy. We thank you, most 
sincerely, sir, for this gift! Messrs. C. B. 
McKeel, of Columbia, and S. 0. Brewer, of 
W. Durham, offered us their copies a few 
days later, provided we had not already 
secured the book and we are most grate- 
ful for their help. Now if some kind 
friend would just send us copies of the 


The Carolina Journal, of Pharmacy 

first two editions of the National Formulary, 
we would be almost happy. We say almost 
for we would also like very much to have 
the missing journals mentioned in the De- 
cember issue. Can't you help us, gentle 

Won't you look over your stock of 
old books and see if you have copies 
of the Proceedings of the North Caro- 
lina Pharmaceutical Association for 
1887, 1890, and 1891? The Library 
of the State University School of 
Pharmacy needs these numbers. If 
you can locate any or all them the 
Library will be most grateful. If you 
do not have them, can you suggest 
where they might be secured? 

Pharmacy Students on Honor Roll 

The following pharmacy students at the 
State University made the honor roll for 
the fall quarter: Messrs. M. M. Brame, 
Winston-Salem; C. H. Cobb, Fremont; 
Loamie Gilbert, Jr., Benson; F. B. Ham, 
Greensboro ; H. M. Lawrence, Cuba, N. Y. ; 
C. L. Neal, Greensboro; D. C. Purcell, Salis- 
bury, and R. S. Whiteley, Greensboro. Mr. 
Cobb led the school making the highest pos- 
sible grade — "A" — in every subject. 

An Interesting Collection 

Not long ago the office had the pleasure 
of a visit from Mr. E. F. Rimmer, of Char- 
lotte. We enjoyed discussing with him num- 
erous matters of interest to the profession 
of pharmacy. During the course of the 
conversation he told us of a hobby that had 
meant much to him for many years. He is 
making a collection of biographies of the 
presidents of the United States from the 
day of Washington to the present time. In 
his library are many of the rare and valu- 
able biographies cherished by collectors. In- 
cluded are Parson Weem's Life of Wash- 
ington. In some instances Mr. Eimmer has 
several biographies of the same president 
and in one or two cases a life of a presi- 
dent is lacking. It seems that Thomas 
Jefferson is the favorite, for Mr. Eimmer 
not only possesses several biographies of 

the third president but he showed particular 
enthusiasm when he mentioned the Sage of 
Monticello. We cannot imagine a more de- 
lightful hobby and we only hope that some 
day Mr. Eimmer will give us the privilege of 
browsing in his library. 


Friends were shocked to hear that Mr. 
Daniel McNeill McKay, Jr., of Durham, had 
died in Duke hospital early on the morning 
of December 25 from injuries sustained in 
an automobile crash early Christmas eve. 
Mr. McKay and his sister were on the way to 
the bedside of a dying friend when their 
car was smashed by an automobile driven 
by a negro. Miss McKay was painfully but 
not seriously injured. Mr. McKay was 29 
years of age and was a native of Goldsboro. 
He was the eldest son of Mr. D. M. McKay, 
Durham druggist and Mrs. Emily Whiting 
McKay, of Asheville. Young McKay lived 
in Asheville until several years ago when he 
moved to Durham to be associated with his 
father in the drug business. In addition to 
his parents he is survived by two sisters and 
three brothers, and to the entire bereaved 
family the Journal extends sincerest sym- 


Of interest to many friends is the an-] 
nouneement of the marriage of Miss Bess 
Lewis, of Whiteville, and Mr. Archibald W. 
Palmer, formerly of Gulf, but now of San- 
ford, which took place at the home of the 
bride in Whiteville. Mrs. Palmer is an 
honor graduate of Greensboro College and 
since her graduation has been a member of 
the Sanford school faculty, teaching piano. 
Mr. Palmer graduated in pharmacy at the 
State University in 1924 and for the past 
several years has been conected with the 
Acme Drug Co. in Sanford.

constantly being detailed by smooth-talking

Virginia vs. North Carolina 

The Virginia Board of Pharmacy reports 
that on December 31, 1932, there were 694 
drug stores registered in that State. Of 
this number 331 employed one pharmacist; 
316 used two; 34 had 3; 11 had four; and 
1 had 5 licensed men on duty. The average 
was 1.61 pharmacists per store. Virginia's 
331 one-man stores represent 47.6% of the 

North Carolina on September 1, 1932, had 
834 registered drug stores. Of this num- 
ber, 652, or S0% were one-man stores; 138 
employed two pharmacists; 19 employed 
three; one had four; and none had five. The 
average number of pharmacists per store 
was about 1.31. This number, however, is 
calculated on the basis that every one of the 
1,099 persons registered as pharmacists is 
working in a drug store in this State. This, 
of course, is not the case because cpiite a few 
pharmacists within the State pay their an- 
nual renewal fee but do not work in drug 
stores, while an appreciable number keep 
up their renewals, i.e., remain registered 
here, when actually they practice or live in 
other states. Perhaps it would be near the 
fact to say that 1,000 pharmacists are li- 
censed and actually practicing in this State. 
In this case the number per store would be 
1.19 instead of 1.31. Thus, in comparison 
with Virginia, Ave have 140 more total stores, 
32.4% more one-man stores, but 0.42 fewer 
licentiates per store, and 120 fewer pharma- 
cists engaged in drug store work within the 

The Whisky Bill 

Before these lines are published the bill 
of Representative Murphy, of Rowan, to al- 
low the sale of prescription whisky in this 
State, will likely be passed or killed — that 
is, settled one way or another. 

Reasonable arguments can be used in sup- 
port of or in opposition to the bill. 

Suppose we admit that occasionally in 
medical practice a doctor believes that whis- 
ky is essential in a pneumonia or influenza 
case. Naturally he wants his patient to get 
good whisky in a legal, simple way. This 
could be done if the Murphy bill becomes 
law. The same doctor may occasionally find 
a stubborn cough that can only be relieved 
by Heroin. Codeine just will not act as a 
good substitute. But the doctor cannot use 
Heroin because its manufacture and sale are 
prohibited by a federal statute rigidly en- 
forced. Both whisky and heroin are at pres- 
ent outlawed in North Carolina on the theory 
that for every one time each may find legiti- 
mate employment there will be nine times 
when each will act as a menace to the public 
safety and welfare. One person is penalized, 
therefore, in order that nine persons may be 
shielded. On exactly such a premise are 
most laws enacted. Every prescriber of 
Heroin hated to give up a valuable agent 
but realizing the great harm its illegitimate 
use was causing, few offered protests against 
its absolute prohibition. 

If prescriptions for whisky were never to 
be written except in cases where whisky was 
required and in amounts approximately equal 
to actual needs, this writer would not only 
favor but would work for a law serving this 
purpose. But the Murphy bill would allowj 
every registered doctor to prescribe about 
four gallons a month on orders calling for a 
full pint for each patient each time. Shortly 
Congress is going to lift the limit on the 
number of prescriptions per month and leave 
the number to the discretion of prescribers 
The Murphy bill would automatically do the 
same thing because "This act shall conform 
to such rules and regulations as are now or 
may be prescribed ~by the Acts of Congress." 
A great many doctors want the Murphy 
bill enacted. The usual charge for writing 
whisky prescriptions is three dollars, some- 
times two. A dollar a minute is pretty good 
wages. A good many druggists want the 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


Murphy bill passed. Profits on medicinal 
whisky in states permitting its sale are never 
less than 100%. But the Murphy bill, un- 
like similar measures in other states, makes 
the druggist pay $200 a year to dispense 
whisky. Quite a volume of prescriptions 
would have to be filled before such a drug- 
gist could break even, much less profit. 

If the bill is a revenue-raising device why 
should the dispenser be singled out to pay 
for the tax? The doctor has the same privi- 
lege, and since he makes more profit out of 
;he transaction, why should he not pay a 
ifee also? If the bill is designed to promote 
;he public health in making available a 
lecessary medicine, why should any privi- 
lege fees be charged other than the nominal 
.ee the U. S. Government charges? If the 
Ell is intended to promote the public wel- 
'are, why make the people who are expected 
;o promote it pay a high fee when acting 
is agents for the State? If the bill is to 
j'aise revenue, why not wait until Congress 
jillows the general sale of liquor and then 
'stick on a heavy tax upon the people who 
vould like to handle whisky for ifs profit 
'eatures and get real instead of pin money 
mt of it? 

The Golden Rule 

Doesn't it make you mad? Well it ought 

Here is Smith who gets some of his neces- 
,'ities in the drug line from you — on credit. 
Svery three months or so he pays at least 
l^art of his bill.

jet from you? 

He buys that at the "drugless" drug- 
store next block where they sell many things 
it times as cheap as you can buy them — 
>r at the chain store, or at the ''hole in 
me wall" — cash-and-carry pirates. 

And — he pays CASH for everything — the 
:ash that should go toward paying your bill. 

Yes, you are entitled to be good and mad. 
lust as mad as the legitimate wholesaler who 
las carried you perhaps several months, while 
matching you paying cash for popular drug 
terns that you get from some candy or ice 
':ream or cigar dealer! 

Just as long as you, for the sake of a few 
bennies extra profit, buy goods from these 

pirates, and help them to larger profits 
through larger turnovers, just so long will 
you have to fight the cutrater in and out of 
your neighborhood.

barely possible that your real friend, the 
legitimate wholesaler, may get tired of wait- 
ing for his money! — The Apothecary. 

Are There Too Many Drug Stores? 

We are so impressed with an article that 
appeared in the Maryland Pharmacist that 
we are reprinting it in its entirety : 

"Are there too many drug stores? Irre- 
spective of wbat the answer is, it must be 
admitted that the question is one to which 
pharmacists are giving much earnest thought. 
It has been the subject of serious editorial 
comment, and it comes up for discussion 
whenever and wherever pharmacists meet. 
It is, in every sense of the work, an impor- 
tant question. Many claim that the mer- 
chandising aspect of the modern drug store 
is due to an over abundance of drug stores. 
It is pointed out that pharmacists as a class 
do not create professional work. They sim- 
ply participate in the amount made avail- 
able by physicians, dentists, and the general 
public. In other words, the greater the 
number of drug stores, the more dilute pro- 
fessional practice becomes. Ultimately the 
supply becomes so extenuated that there is 
nothing left for the pharmacist to do but to 
plunge into merchandising as a means of 
keeping his store open. Those who contend 
that there are too many stores frankly ad- 
mit that nothing can be done to reduce the 
present number, but they seriously insist 
that new ones should not be opened. To 
accomplish this, many plans are suggested. 
It is said that the major divisions of the 
drug industry are too loosely associated, and 
that each operates to suit itself with little 
or no thought to the welfare of pharmacy as 
a whole. It is urged that wholesalers, re- 
tailers, colleges of pharmacy, and other 
groups should be pulled closer together so 
that the interests of each might be con- 
sidered in connection with what is best for 
all. In other words, it is insisted that a 
strong, intelligent and forward looking 
policy should be adopted and followed 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

through. It is also contended that whole- 
salers are much too liberal in granting 
credit for the opening of new and useless 
stores, that the colleges accept far too many 
students, and that the requirements for reg- 
istration should be much more stringent. 
The idea has been advanced that graduates 
should be required to practice five years or 
more after registration before being per- 
mitted to open or operate a store. Some 
have gone so far as to advocate that the 
boards of pharmacy should be clothed with 
power to refuse a person the right to estab- 
lish a new store in communities properly and 
adequately served. It has been suggested 
that there should be a special committee in 
the state pharmaceutical associations to 
make a study of existing conditions and to 
confer with wholesalers and colleges so that 
some steps might be taken to really work 
things out. 

"On the other hand, it is contended that 
the privilege of entering pharmacy should 
not be dependent upon artificial reasons, 
and that no hindrance should be placed in 
the way of those who have met the educa- 
tional requirements. It is pointed out that 
the whole social fabric of the country de- 
pends upon unlimited freedom of choice in 
matters of this kind. The contention is ad- 
vanced that all business and professions have 
been sorely beset by the economic pressure 
of the day, and that, viewed from present 
indications, all lines of business are greatly 
overcrowded. The lawyers, the doctors, the 
nurses, the engineers, everybody, in fact, is 
complaining that his field is overrun. 

"And so the arguments are presented. 
However, everyone deeply interested in the 
status of pharmacy, and everyone concerned 
with its future, is face to face with a ques- 
tion of the greatest significance. Thus the 
question is again asked: 

' ' Have we too many drug stores ? ' ' 

Are there too many drug stores'? If the 
answer must be yes or no we would have 
to say yes, but we prefer to reply that in 
so far as North Carolina is concerned the 
trouble lies more in the distribution of drug 
stores than in the number. As long as there 
are whole counties without a single drug 
store, and some towns that could support 

a real drug store instead of a doctor's shop, 
and only 83-4 drug stores for more than three 
million people (one store to every 3,700 
persons), Ave believe that the economic prob- 
lem is more one of re-location than of elimi- 
nation. Some communities have twice too 
many stores; some have none or at least 
none that could go up against the competi- 
tion an active druggist could set up. But 
how take stores from where they are not 
needed to where they should be located? 
That is the question!

Pictured below is Mr. A. Allison James, 
of Winston-Salem, the only druggist in the 
North Carolina General Assembly. Mr. 
James is a member of the Lower House from 
Forsyth County who led the ticket in the 
last election. Already placed on important 
committees, Mr. James is playing an active 
part in the present legislative sessions. 

A number of pleasantly truthful things 
can be said of Allison James. To begin witl 
a rare quality: he is a wonderful friend- 
one of the unquestioning sort who sticks as 
fast in adversity as in prosperity. Any

— T.M.A.— 

The Real Workers Will Find Business 
Once more the sun is rising on the 
business world. A better day is at 
hand and there is business to be had 
by those who are willing to work. 
The business recession has reached the 
lowest point of its long drop and is 
now levelled off ready for the workers 
to start it upward again. 

Will you be one of those who will 
get your share of business in the com- 
ing year? It will mean work. You 
may think that you have been work- 
ing during the past three years but 
now you are going to really learn what 
the word means. 

Have you been doing all that you 
might have done during these bad 
years? Can you plan your time so 
that you can add even a feAv minutes 
to your daily schedule? Minutes will 
count this year. And those minutes 
must be used in planning and carry- 
ing out the plans that will help others 
as well as yourselves. 

The very future of orderly govern- 
ment throughout the world rests upon 
the efforts of the business men and the 
salesmen during the next year. You 
are yourself an important cog in the 
business machine and your work may 
make or break the whole effort. If 
you work diligently your factory will 
be able to employ men. If you fail 
to give all that is in you, there may be 
children crying for bread because of 
your failure. 

This is the most important year that 
— T.M.A.— 

America has ever faced. It does not 
matter in which of our countries you 
may reside, the situation is the same 
and the cure is the same. Wherever 
you may look there is business to be 
had if you are willing to do all that 
is required. The shelves and store- 
houses of the continent are empty. 
The factories have not been operated 
for so long a time that even they are 
without any manufactured product. 

The public will not buy but it can 
be sold. The talk of a "buyers' mar- 
ket ' ' has gone the way of all catch 
phrases and business once more real- 
izes that markets are made only by 
selling. Go out now and get your 
share. Be a real salesman and work 
unceasingly because the reward will 
be greater than ever before. 

Bemember this as you work: You 
are not merely working for yourself. 
You are not building alone this time. 
Your efforts are tied up with thous- 
ands of other salesmen in a war 
against suffering and distress. You 
are enlisted in an army whose objec- 
tive may be profits but whose victory 
means the security of your nation. 
That victory means comfort to work- 
men. It means bread for the children 
and happiness for the mothers of the 
land. You must not fail. You dare 
not refuse the responsibility. You are 
the sole hope of the continent, you 
business men and salesmen, and you 
will find your reward in some real 
business because it can be had if you 
work. — Copied.

The Legislative Situation 

This is written on the fifty-third day of 
the legislative session with but seven days 
remaining of the Constitutional Sixty Day 
term. At this time there appears to be a 
deadlock over the Revenue Aet that must 
be adopted to bring into the State Treasury 
sufficient revenue to meet the operating ex- 
penses of government. On every hand pro- 
posals are made to provide the revenue 
needed to carry on with a balanced budget. 
But no one plan seems to have support 
necessary to put it across. One thing is 
conceded, however, and that is that the 
Legislature must levy some sort of a sales 
tax. Only yesterday the members of the 
Senate Finance Committee by a vote of 
eight to four and the House Finance Com- 
mittee by a vote of twelve to nine decided 
that some sort of a sales tax would be neces- 

More than three weeks ago, or during the 
first few days of last month a Sub-com- 
mittee of the Joint Finance Committee, com- 
posed of four members from the Senate and 
six members from the House, was appointed 
to write a revenue bill with the direction 
that a sales tax be incorporated therein. This 
was done after this Committee had voted to 
discard the Budget Kevenue bill submitted 
to the Legislature by the old administration. 
Instead of writing one revenue bill, how- 
ever, the Sub-committee Avrote two substi- 
tute bills and reported them to the full Com- 
mittee without recommendation, on the fif- 
tieth day of the session after spending fif- 
teen days or more in preparing them. 

One of the substitute bills submitted car- 
ries a General Retail Sales tax while the 
other carries a Selected Commodity Sales 
Tax, which is the Hinsdale Luxury tax bill 
introduced earlier in the Session. Both of 
the bills written by the Sub-committee are 
based on the proposed Revenue Act sub- 

mitted by the Budget Commission, despite 
the fact that it was discarded by the Joint 
Finance Committee. 

The Committee Substitute carrying a gen- j 
eral sales tax proposal of two per cent on 
all sales of retail merchants proposes several 
other changes and increases in the privilege 
taxes paid by retail druggists under Sched- 
ule B of the present Revenue Act. In the 
first place, pharmacists are placed in the 
list of occupations taxed along with attor- 
neys, physicians, dentists, and other pro-' 
fessions. The amendment reads "Amend 
Section 109, page 50 by inserting after the 
figures ($25.00) in line 26 the following: 

"Every licensed pharmacist shall in like 
manner apply for and obtain from the Com- 
missioner of Revenue a State-wide license for 
practicing his profession, whether for him- 
self or in the employ of another, of ten dol- 
lars ($10.00) ". 

The only other occupation added to the 
present list is morticians or embalmers and 
at the same rate. In this connection, the 
tax levied upon attorneys, etc., is $25.00 an- 
nually, except where the total revenue of 
those taxes is less than $1,000.00 the tax 
is one-half that amount. 

Another increase is found in Section 127, 
imposing a tax on Restaurants, Cafes, and 
sandwich dealers. Here the tax on sandwich 
dealers is increased from $5.00 which is the 
amount now paid to $7.50 annually. 

Still another change and the most far- 
reaching of all is made in Section 144, which 
levies the tax on soda fountains and soft 
drink stands. In this section it is proposed 
to eliminate the graduated tax ranging from 
$5.00 to $50.00 annually according to popu- 
lation and substitute in lieu thereof the fol- 
lowing : 

"On each carbonated draft arm of each 
soda fountain a tax of $10.00". 

And, in addition, there is levied a tax of 
39o upon the gross retail sales of all car- 
bonated or mixed drinks which must be 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


reported and paid in the manner provided 
for the General Sales tax of 2%. This 
means that druggists would be required to 
keep a separate set of records for soda foun- 
tain operations, paying a tax of 3% on this 
and 2% on the other sales of the store. 

The other ehange is found in Section 162 
taxing chain or branch stores. The pro- 
posed section places a graduated tax of from 
$50.00 to $150 upon chain stores based upon 
the number of stores operated or owned by 
one management, whereas the present tax 
is $50 upon each store in excess of one. 

The other Committee Substitute carrying 
the selective commodity sales tax also levies 
the occupational tax of $10.00 upon pharma- 
cists, increases the sandwich tax from $5.00 
to $7.50, makes the same levy upon chain 
stores as the other substitute bill submitted. 
However, it levies a tax of only $5.00 on 
each carbonated draft arm of each soda 
fountain and does not impose the 3% tax. 
This is omitted, of course, because soft 
drinks are taxed as a selected commodity or 
luxury under this proposal of the Sub-com- 

Added to the list of selected commodities 
in the original Hinsdale bill S. B. No. SO, 
are found chewing gum taxed at the rate of 
1 cent on each five cents or fractional part 
thereof of the retail price on each package, 
and jewelry selling for one dollar or more 
taxed at the rate of 5%, with the provision 
that the total tax on any one article is not 
to exceed $25.00. 

The Joint Finance Committee will decide 
upon one or the other of the substitute bills, 
above outlined, which were submitted to it 
by the Sub-Committee, and will report the 
one of its choosing to the House early in 

Unless there is a change in mind on the 
part of several of the members of the Fi- 
nance Committee the substitute bill carry- 
ing the general sales tax Avill be adopted by 
this Committee. "Whether or not this bill 
or any other sales tax bill will be enacted 
into law is another question. Certainly there 
will be a bitter fight and that there is likely 
to be a repetition of the struggle of two 
years ago on the sales tax question. It is 
agreed by all that the Budget must be bal- 
anced and further it appears now that the 
only way this may be done is by the adop- 

tion of one or the other of the sales tax 
proposals before the Legislature. 

In either case, we hope to get adjustments 
insofar as the taxes upon druggists are con- 
cerned. Your representatives have assurances 
that the occupational tax of ten dollars an- 
nually will be removed, and that the tax on 
soft drinks will be adjusted in the event the 
general sales tax plan prevails. 

Medicinal Whisky Bill 

House Bill 261, introduced by Hon. Walter 
Murphy of Rowan, To promote the better en- 
forcement of the Prohibition Laws and the 
Eighteenth Amendment, has received a fav- 
orable report by Judiciary Committee No. 1 
of the House. This report which proposes 
legalization of medicinal whisky on the same 
terms as now allowed under the federal laws 
was made by the Committee without giving a 
hearing which had been requested. It is 
understood that a public hearing will be 

The Murphy bill provides that every per- 
son, firm, or corporation permitted to sell 
medicinal whisky shall pay an annual license 
tax of $200 annually; and, further, that be- 
fore a license may be granted to any store 
to dispense medicinal whisky, said store shall 
have been in operation for at least six 

Pharmacists by Special Acts 

Senate Bill No. 169, introduced by Sena- 
tor Greene of Mitchell County, grants a li- 
cense to H. E. Roberts of Marshall, who 
holds a Tennessee license but who is ineligi- 
ble to stand the Board in North Carolina. 
Senate Judiciary Committee No. 2 reported 
this bill favorable with only one dissenting 
vote after it had given a hearing. The 
Senate then passed the measure and the bill 
is now in the hands of the same committee 
of the House. 

Senate Bill No. 190, introduced by Sena- 
tor Blue of Scotland County, permitting any 
person registered in another state stand our 
Board examination if he has worked in 
North Carolina for fifteen years, has like- 
wise passed the Senate. This bill was re- 
ferred to the Senate Health Committee where 
it was reported favorably after a hearing 
had been held. It is now in the hands of 
the House Health Committee. 

House Bill 689, introduced by Rep. Ever- 
ett of Durham, would give a license to P. B. 
Hardee of Durham, who holds a Georgia 
license, without examination. This bill, also, 
is in the hands of the House Health Com- 

Hearings will be held on these bills Febru- 
ary 1. It is believed that all of them will 
be killed either by Committee action or on 
the floor of the House.

Judge Bowman's Accident 

Judge F. 0. Bowman was the victim of a 
serious automobile accident recently as he 
was returning to his home in Chapel Hill on 
February 4 after attending the week's ses- 
sions of the Legislature. The day was cold 
and rainy, and as he approached Cary his 
car suddenly skidded, and went over the em- 
bankment turning over twice. Judge es- 
caped with many minor bruises but his ear 
was almost a total wreck. Mr. P. L. Senter, 
Raleigh druggist who has recently moved to 
Carrboro, happened to be driving directly 
behind Mr. Bowman and he brought the 
Judge on to Chapel Hill. After a week-end 
of rest Judge went back to Raleigh and was 
on hand when the Legislature re-convened 
on Monday. 

A Letter About Vitamins 

To the Editor of the Journal: 

Inasmuch as there is such wide-spread 
discussion concerning the great importance 
of Vitamins I thought it would be timely 
to furnish a true definition of ' ' these 
things ' ' called Vitamins as well as a brief 
personal opinion of measuring their food 
and therapeutic value and more especially 
their classification as put forth by manu- 
facturers in impressing their significance to 
the medical profession. Anyway here we 

Vitamins are imaginary, never-yet-seen 

and, therefore, indescribable (either chem 
cally or physically) properties or constitii 
ents of various organic mixtures or form 
of matter. They are supposed to repre 
sent the sustaining and life-giving principle 
of said matter. In so far as the said Life 
giving principles of various foods have bee 
given the name Vitamin, no one denies th 
fact that it is an appropriate name, proba 
bly derived from the word vitality or some 
thing similar. Here 's the significant part 
we have never seen Vitamin A, B, C, or I 
G, B, D, F. It appears quite clear that unt: 
these principles are isolated and their tru 
characteristic and quantitative presence i] 
ANY substance is determined by some met! 
od other than observation of pigs and albin 
rats, then it is quite obvious that such de 
seriptions as 13-G or 450 D or "Supe 
X YZ ' ' is utterly without significance. I ai 
of the opinion there is positively no iva 
accurately to determine the Vitamin con 
tent of any substance or form of matter b 
it liquid, gaseous, or solid. 

When cancer germs are isolated aud thei 
presence is recognized by distinctive forr 
etc. etc. then perhaps we'll breed a cod 
queror of cancer — both preventive and cura 
five. I think all this descriptive literatur 
concerning "The Vitamin content" of vari 
ous preparations is a powerful lot of BUNK 
more disgusting than good.

Predatory Price Cutting 
However much opinion may be di- 
vided, as it always is, in all lines of 
business throughout the country, cer- 
tain fundamentals remain. Primarily 
all of us are in business to make 
money, and retailers like other humans 
must find some way to exist, and they 
certainly cannot make a living by 
selling goods at cost or less. 

Any system or plan of merchandis- 
ing in which all restraint is cast aside 
forcing honest, square dealing mer- 
chants to engage in a life and death 
struggle for business on the basis of 
goods offered for sale at or below 
cost in an effort to meet ruthless com- 
petition can be looked upon as a short 
cut to commercial suicide, the disas- 
trous effects of which are sure to be 
felt by both merchant and the con- 
suming public alike. No better evi- 
dence is necessary to substantiate this 
than a casual observation of what is 
taking place among the larger dis- 
tributors. A number of them are re- 
sorting to bankruptcy to meet a situ- 
ation that has resulted from their

Mr. John D. McMillan, 52 years of age, 
the son of the late Dr. J. D. McMillan, 
pioneer physician and druggist, of Lumber- 
ton, died at his home early on the morning 
of January 29. He had been ill for two 
years with heart trouble and other complica- 
tions. For the past five months he had been 
confined to his bed and was unconscious for 
four weeks before his death. Mr. McMillan 
was one of Lumbertons most popular citi- 
zens. He served many years on the town 
board and board of audit and finance. Since 
the death of his father, he had operated the 
drug store wnieh still carries the name of 
J. D. McMillan and Son. It was established 
more than fifty years ago, the first drug store 
in Robeson County. In addition to the drug 
store Air. McMillan operated a large farm.

as he was affectionately called by all who 
knew him, was one of the brightest boys of 
Sanford. He was the only child of his 


(Continued from page 146) 
thing he has literally belongs to his friends. 
He is one of the most generous and chari- 
table persons whom we ever knew. He 
hasn 't a stingy bone in his body and people 
so inclined can "gouge" him easily. The 
books of his drug store are loaded down 
with accounts that stern business men would 
never have opened. If a man comes in with 
a prescription that is really needed it is 
filled even though the chap is a notorious 
bum. Oftentimes not even a charge slip is 
made of the purchase. This is, of course, 
poor business, and somebody may remark 
"That man is a fool." Such a person talk- 
ing to him for a little while on some question 
will change his statement. Fellow legisla- 
tors will never class him thus. Generous, 
yes; friendly, yes; loyal, yes; but a fool? 
Never! We have worked with him, played 
with him, enjoyed his laughter without ever 
knowing of any heart hurts he may have 
suffered, been cheered and helped by him, 
and we know the fine stuff that went into 
the making of the soul of him. Allison will 
never make money but his conscience will

Licensing Acts Killed 

Up to the time of this writing, every bill 
designed to grant pharmaceutical license to 
ineligible persons has failed of passage in 
the Legislature. Some of those who sought 
license by special enactments are good men 
whom we hated to oppose for personal reas- 
ons. Unfortunately, however, if they had 
gained their way and in spite of not meet- 
ing the requirements that all North Caro- 
lina applicants must meet, had been given 
their license, they would to a dangerous de- 
gree weaken the laws regulating license and 
thereby set up precedents that would have 
endless unfavorable consequences. 

Every person seeking this sort of license 
this year was registered in some other state, 
but at the time of such registration he did 
not possess the same qualifications that 
North Carolina (by law) (it that time was 
requiring of its own applicants for license. 
Not having been eligible in this State at 
that time, he obviously is not now eligible 
for reciprocal license. (The same rule holds 
in all states: it is a basic rule of reciproc- 
ity,) If this rule were broken down in 
North Carolina the State might soon be 
flooded with licentiates from other states — 
migratory persons who drift about, often- 
times taking home jobs away from home 
folks. The men who asked for special privi- 
leges this time were distinctly not of that 
sort — all were excellent citizens — but if the 
bars had been let down to permit their com- 
ing in, the bars would have to stay lowered 
for persons of a distinctly different char- 
acter, since the law cannot discriminate and 
say to A, "You come in because we like 
you,'' and to B, "You stay nut because we 
don't know anything about you." A and 
B are the same in the eyes of the law. There- 
fore, to avoid allowing just any licentiate of 
any state to practice legally in North Caro- 
lina, it was necessary to fight A in his ef- 

forts to get license because of the chain of 
consequences that would follow the success 
of his efforts. But it was a disagreeable 
duty to oppose some of those who asked 
for special privileges. 

Raleigh's Oldest Telephone 

In Ealeigh the other day we noticed a tele- 
phone numbered One. It was in the old 
Eobert Simpson drug store, now owned by 
Mr. S. W. Williams. On inquiry we learned 
that the phone is the oldest in the city. It 
was first installed in the drug store of Lee, 
Johnson and Co., at the corner of Martin and 
Fayetteville streets. It then travelled pro- 
gressively to James I. Johnson, successor to 
the above firm, then to W. G. Thomas, and 
finally to its present location when in 1920 
Mi'. Williams moved his stock to the pres- 
ent location where Mr. Robert Simpson con- 
ducted a drug store for so many years. Think 
of the prescriptions and orders that have 
passed through that old 'phone. In the 
Journal of January, 1932 a news items 
shows that H. E. Home and Sons, of Fayette- 
ville, also have the first telephone installed 
in that city. Do any other drug stores in 
the State have a telephone Number One? 

Are There Bouquets as Well 
as Bricks? 

The Medicinal Whisky Bill is dead, killed 
along with all other measures designed to 
make North Carolina wet. The editor, in 
his capacity as Secretary-Treasurer of the 
Association, led the fight against prescrip- 
tion whisky, and as a result has been made 
the victim of some insulting or threatening 
letters from druggists who wanted the bill 
made law. He is trying to ignore these 
letters because he was simply carrying out 
instructions from the Legislative and Exec- 
utive Committees in opposing the measure, 
but it is hard to be tough-skinned when ac- 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


eused falsely, especially, as in this ease, 
when those who must have favored what he 
;lid keep quiet and leave him without a word 
of encouragement. 

In his fight the Secretary-Treasurer con- 

(a) that whisky may be a desirable drug 
.n exceptional instances, but it is not in- 
dispensable. Like heroin its abuses carry 
nore danger than its legitimate uses carry 
value ; 

(b) that the legal sale of medicinal whis- 
ky would bring into the State an undesir- 
able element, attracted here by the large 
orofits involved, and an element which bi- 
asing ruthless competitive methods, would 
anally hurt more than would the immediate 
orofits of legal whisky help; 

(e) that the dealer's tax of $200 was un- 
fair and would absorb more than all of the 
orofits that smaller stores could earn. If 
.vhisky should lie supplied, the State-ap- 
pointed agents of sale should not be exces- 
sively taxed when carrying out the mandate 
of the General Assembly. If there was to 
oe a tax, doctors should at least pay their 
nart since their profits would obviously be 

The above facts, coupled with the Associa- 
;ion 's oft-repeated veto of medicinal whis- 
m, caused the Secretary-Treasurer to do 
what was expected of him in opposing the 
measure. , 

\ If there be those who favor what he did, 
will not a few of them at least send in a 
xindly word of endorsement partly to off- 
set the other sort that are still coming in? 

Resolutions Opposing Sales Tax 

On March 2 a meeting of retail druggists 
representing eight Western North Carolina 
towns was held in Asheville under the aus- 
pices of the Dr. T. C. Smith Co. Several 
natters of current interest were discussed 
after which attention was centered upon the 
sales tax. Those present finally agreed to 
i. set of resolutions directed to the legisla- 
tors of the district that should be of inter- 
?st to druggists throughout the State. The 
Resolutions follow below: 

"In meeting assembled Thursday, March 
|2, 1933, thirty retail drug store owners of 

Western North Carolina representing, be- 
sides Asheville, the towns of Canton, Waynes- 
ville, Bryson City, Weaverville, Swannanoa, 
Black Mountain, and Newton, reviewed the 
tax measures now affecting the mercantile 
business of their respective towns. 

' ' It was found through statistics furnished 
by the U. S. Department of Commerce and 
also the Harvard Bureau of Statistics that 
in proportion to other types of stores the 
per capita expenditure of the consuming 
public directed to retail drug stores is sur- 
prisingly low. In fact, to quote the figures 
of the above mentioned bureaus, the num- 
ber of dollars per capita spent in drug stores 
is $7.21 per year. This is compared with 
other lines ranging up to $20.00. The drug 
store, therefore, sets a low among the prin- 
cipal types of retail agencies. 

"It is only necessary to enter a drug store 
to discover that it is now the most over- 
taxed of all retail agencies. Every drug 
store has its walls pasted with tax receipts 
separately covering soda fountain tax, nar- 
cotic tax, perfume tax, tobacco tax, toy tax, 
electric appliance tax, and so on. In addi- 
tion, drug stores are now paying a gross 
sales tax to the State of North Carolina. 
They pay an unbearable and unfair Federal 
Tax of 10 per cent on more than 6,000 listed 
so-called luxury items. 

"Experience with the Federal Tax has 
proved that it is impossible for the retail 
druggist to pass this tax on to the con- 
sumer as was intended by the proponents 
of the tax. It is certain that the manufac- 
turer protects himself by passing on the 
tax as is legal, but the tax is absorbed by 
the druggist. 

' ' Therefore, with his low proportion of 
gross sales, the druggist is facing bank- 
ruptcy on account of the high proportion of 
taxes now directed at drug store items. 

"In Western North Carolina the drug 
store 's life depends upon tourist business 
and upon trade from sick rjeople. The drug 
store handles more items needed by tourists 
and sick people than any other type of 
store. In the event of further taxation, it 
is certain that this trade would be driven to 
stores outside the state. The sick, not being 
gainfully employed, could not stand the 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

burden of commodity taxes and the tourists 
would not submit to it. 

"Be it therefore resolved: That this body 
of representative drug store owners expects 
you, as our representative, to use your in- 
fluence and cast your vote against any legis- 
lation which would in any manner add taxa- 
tion to drug stores or to commodity items 
sold therein. ' ' 

Causes of Drug Store Failures 

The Committee on Use of the National 
Drug Store Survey reveals ten causes that 
explain why a number of drug stores studied 
went into bankruptcy. These causes were: 

1. Insufficient capital, 

2. Inexperience in business management, 

3. Excessive rental costs, 

4. Failure to keep complete and accurate 
records of receipts and expenditures, 

5. Indiscriminate withdrawal of casli by 
proprietor and his family, 

6. Dishonest salespeople, 

7. Unwise expansion of credit and/or 
failure to collect accounts, 

8. Failure to take, analyze and profit by 
regular inventories, 

9. Excessive store loafing, driving busi- 
ness away, 

10. Disagreement of partners.

ings of the Committee on this subject may

Laws Are Sometimes Interesting 

A manufacturer has the legal right to re- 
fuse to sell his merchandise for any reason 
or no reason at all, under the Clayton Act, 
and he may refuse to sell a dealer because 
the dealer fails to sell at the price suggested 
by the manufacturer, but the manufacturer 
cannot exact a promise from the dealer that 
he will sell at the price suggested by the 
manufacturer, and the dealer cannot make 
and execute such a promise without both 
the manufacturer and the dealer violating 
the Sherman law prohibiting agreements in 

restraint of interstate commerce, where the 
transaction involved is one of interstate 

Joseph Bryan O'Bannon 

We were deeply grieved a few weeks ago 
to learn of the death in Charlotte of Ma 
J. B. O 'Bannon. Mr. O 'Bannon is so well 
known to druggists in North Carolina that 
we need not explain what he was or did; 
so well known, too, that nothing we can say 
will heighten the esteem in which he was 
held by all who knew him well. All that 
we can do is to record our personal sorrow 
over the passing of a true friend, a courtly 
gentleman, and one of the finest salesmen 
who ever traveled North Carolina. 

Our first memory of him dates back to 
Waynesville at the 1912 convention of the { 
North Carolina Pharmaceutical Association 
when this writer was first elected Secretary 
of the organization. The meeting had not 
been well attended, enthusiasm was at a low 
ebb; very little was accomplished; and all 
in all the outlook seemed gloomy. After 
adjournment Mr. O'Bannon came up and 
said "Let's make this Association into a 
going concern. Let's get the traveling' 
salesmen to organize themselves into an 
Auxiliary, and fasten upon them the re- 
sponsibility of persuading druggists to at- 
tend the meetings, and give them something 
to enjoy while they are in session."' Out: 
of this conversation (and several more like! 
it) was born the Traveling Men's Auxiliary. 

This writer has frequently been on record 
as saying that of all of the elements that 
went into the upbuilding of the Association 
into a body that has often attracted national 
attention no single one has played so big a ' 
part as the T. M. A. We are going a step] 
further now and say that to Mr. O'Bannon 
belongs the major credit for bringing thei 
T. M. A. into existence and for making it a 
creative agency of fine usefulness. Jim 
leaves other monuments to memorialize his 
career, but they are well known. We add 
this one because it has not heretofore been 
given publicity. (For a photograph and 
biographical sketch of Mr. O'Bannon, see

The Legislative Situation 

This is written on the eighty-second day 
of the legislative session, having exceeded 
already by twenty-two days the Constitu- 
tional Sixty-day term. Furthermore, it is 
certain that the present session will extend 
some three or four weeks longer, and there 
is some likelihood of its continuing as long 
as the unprecedented 1931 session. 

An unusual procedure is being employed 
by this legislature in the execution of its 
business. Heretofore, both the Finance and 
the Appropriation bills have been considered 
hand in hand. This time, however, no defi- 
nite consideration is being given to the 
matter of raising revenue until the matter 
of appropriations has been definitely deter- 
mined. After hearings had been held on the 
various sections of the proposed Budget 
Revenue Bill for several weeks and all the 
various businesses and groups had appeared 
before the Joint Finance Committee, a sub- 
committee was appointed to prepare a reve- 
nue act that would balance the budget. This 
Sub-Committee worked for three weeks and 
then submitted to the full Committee two 
proposals, one carrying a general sales tax 
proposal and the other carrying a selective 
commodity tax proposal, without recommen- 
dation as to which should be adopted. 

In the meantime the Appropriations Com- 
mittee had been laboring on its lull, and as 
soon as its work had neared completion, 
there developed such strong opposition to 
the adoption of any form of sales tax, a 
so-called block was formed in the House 
demanding drastic reductions and economies 
with the purpose in view of forestalling ad- 
ditional tax levies of any kind. A bitter 
fight consequently has been waged for three 
weeks in an effort to reduce appropriations, 
the result being that the appropriations sub- 
mitted by the appropriations committee have 
been greatly reduced, not however to the ex- 

tent of eliminating the necessity of provid- 
ing at least four or five million dollars in ad- 
ditional revenue. Immediately, after the 
formation of the ''bloc'' referred to which 
marked the beginning of the fight that has 
been waged over appropriations, the Joint 
Finance Committee wisely decided to await 
the determination of appropriations that are 
to be made before adopting a revenue bill 
that will bring into the State Treasury suffi- 
cient revenue to meet the expenditures pro- 

An appropriations bill, therefore, is now 
before the Senate. It is expected that this 
body will make material changes. Our guess 
is that the Senate will adopt the bill sub- 
mitted by the Committee on appropriations 
in the main, which follows the recommen- 
dations made by the Governor. This means 
of course that the bill will go back to the 
House for concurrence. It is most unlikely 
that this will be done. The next step will 
be the appointment of a Conference Com- 
mittee, which will undertake to iron out the 
differences between the Upper and the Lower 
House. Another drawn out fight will ensue, 
and while no one knows wdiat will be the 
final outcome, the opinion of many of the 
leading men in the Legislature is that the 
recommendations of the Governor will pre- 

In this event, a sales tax of some kind is 
inevitable. In fact, the members of the 
.Joint Finance Committee, at least a ma- 
jority of the members realize this, and have 
so expressed themselves. The big question 
is which sales tax plan will be adopted. The 
selective sales tax plan, known as the Hins- 
dale "luxury tax" proposal, has its sup- 
porters. Likewise, the general retail sales 
tax proposal has its supporters. Advocates 
of the former estimate that it will produce 
in revenue annually approximately $7,000,- 
uim, while experts put this estimate at only 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


$4,000,000. It is generally conceded that 
the general retail sales tax proposal would 
produce approximately $3,000,000 for each 
1 per cent levy. Obviously the amount of 
revenue that may be produced by a sales tax 
Avill be a determining the sort of sales tax 
that will be adopted. The rates that have 
been suggested under the general retail sales 
tax plan range from 1 per cent to five per 
cent. Those favoring the higher rates of 
four or five per cent desire that as much as 
one per cent of the levy be returned to the 
counties. This proposal has considerable 

It is the opinion of the writer that a gen- 
eral retail sales tax of either two or three 
per cent will be enacted into law, as this 
will be required to raise the additional reve- 
nue needed to balance the budget, ■ unless 
drastic economies and curtailments are yet 
made that are not now contemplated. 

Viewed from the present set-up, it ap- 
pears that a definite proposal, that is, a 
revenue bill designed to produce sufficient 
revenue will lie submitted by the Joint Fi- 
nance Committee early in April, in all prob- 
ability during the first two or three days. 
We urge every reader of the Journal to 
study the press reports carrying the daily 
happenings at the Capital and to advise us 
freely and frankly concerning the proposals 
that may be made. 

Summarizing the changes directly affect- 
ing you made in the two proposals sub- 
mitted by the Sub-finance Committee to the 
Joint Finance Committee: 

1. The Committee Substitute carrying the 
general retail sales tax plan, imposes for 
the first time an occupational tax on phar- 
macists of $10.00 annually; it increases the 
sandwich tax from $5 to $7.50 annually; it 
levies a tax of $10.00 on each carbonated 
draft arm of the soda fountain of $10.00, 
instead of the present graduated tax of 
from $5.00 to $50.00 according to popula- 
tion; and, it imposes a tax of 2 per cent 
on all sales of store, except on fountain 
drinks and ice cream. Assurances have 
been made that adjustments will be made in 
these changes if this plan is adopted as a 
general proposition. 

2. The Committee Substitute carrying the 

selective Commodity tax imposes the occu- 
pational tax of $10.00 upon pharmacists; in- 
creases the sandwich tax from $5.00 to 
$7.50; and levies a tax of $5.00 on each car- 
bonated draft arm of the soda fountain. In 
addition, of course, it places a tax of from 
5 per cent to 2(1 per cent on the selected list 
of commodities, including cosmetics, soft 
drinks, candy, chewing gum, etc., which are 
commonly refered to as non-essentials. 

Pharmacists by Special Acts 

Senate Bill 169 that would have given a 
license to H. E. Roberts of Marshall, who 
holds a license in Tennessee but who is 
eligible to stand the Board in North Caro- 
lina, after passing the Senate was given an 
unfavorable report by the House Judiciary 
Committee No. 2. 

House Bill 689 that would have given a 
license to P. B. Hardee of Durham, who 
holds a Georgia license without examina- 
tion, was given an unfavorable report by 
the House Health Committee. 

Senate Bill 190, permitted any person 
registered in another state stand our Board 
examination if he has worked in North 
Carolina for fifteen years, which passed the 
Senate, was reported unfavorably by the 
House Health Committee, but reached the 
House upon a minority report. Every effort 
will be made by the proponents of this bill 
to bring about its enactment. The oppo- 
nents, however, are hoping that it may be 

Medicinal Whisky Bill 

House Bill 261, To promote the better 
enforcement of the Prohibition Laws and 
the Eighteenth Amendment, after having re- 
ceived a favorable report on two occasions 
by the House Judiciary Committee No. 2, 
was defeated by a large majority when it 
reached the House and was voted upon. This 
measure would have legalized the sale of 
medicinal whisky by retail drug stores under 
the same terms as now allowed under the 
Federal Laws, except that it imposed an 
annual license tax of $200 upon each place 
of business handling same, and provided 
that no license should lie granted to any 
store that had not been in operation for at 
least six months.

Should We Cut the Retail Price of Ice Cream? 

By John K. Civil, of Charlotte 

(Although the paper below was read by Mr. Civil at the last Asso- 
ciation meeting the evils he mentioned have not been materially corrected 
and apply with practically equal force at this time while the suggestions 
he offers have current interest and value. Therefore, the paper is 

To this question I will say, "No,'' es- 
pecially in view of the fact that ice cream 
companies, who advocate such, have only 
reduced their prices to us 20%, while they 
advocate our selling for a 40% cut. 

The Secretary requested me to make a 
short talk on the present ice cream situation 
in regard to the price which the retailer 
should obtain. In order to give you gentle- 
men a somewhat intelligent view of condi- 
tions I have made some investigations as to 
the cost of raw materials that go into the 
manufacture of ice cream. The statements 
1 will make may be wrong, but as this sub- 
ject is an important one to a great many 
of us I hope you will see lit to discuss it. 
To those of you who do not have to retail 
ice cream for 15c a pint this subject will, of 
course have no interest. T sincerely hope 
you will never have to sell at such a price 
as most of the druggists in the State are 
now doing. 

My reason for discussing this subject is 
because of three figures: 100 gallons of ice 
cream in package that up to a few months 
ago cost us $120 we obtained a resale on 
at 25c a pint of $200, showing a gross profit 
of $80, and figuring an overhead of 25%, a 
net profit of $60. For the last few months 
we have beeu forced to retail pint packages 
of ice cream at 15c. The manufacturers 
charge us for 100 gallons $85.00; we resell 
this for $120, which shows a gross profit of 
$35; and, figuring a 25% overhead, as I did 
in obtaining the figure above, it shows $26.25 
net profit for the same amount of ice cream 
we formerly sold that gave us $60 net profit, 
which is over twice the net profit. Some will 
figure that you will do twice and three times 
as much volume selling ice cream at ] oc- 
as you would for 25c but I have not found 
this statement verified by several druggists I 
have asked. I find that the prevailing price 
on whole milk four years ago was 45c per 
gallon, the cost of 30% butter fat cream 

was $2.10 pei' gallon, the cost of evaporated 
milk was $4.50 per case of six No. 10 cans. 
The present prevailing price is 25c per 
gallon for whole milk, $1.20 per gallon for 
cream in bulk, and $2.50 per case for No. 10 
cans of evaporated milk. 

In checking over these figures we see the 
principal ingredients used in the manufacture 
of ice cream have declined in price over 
40%, and, in my opinion, the biggest ex- 
pense of getting the ice cream to the con- 
sumer is borne by the retail druggist who 
supplies, or should supply his neighborhood 
with ice cream, and, as stated above, this 
expense will run 25% more if he does much 
delivering. Flavoring and fruits are a very 
small part of the cost of ice cream per 

As the drug store is a place of high 
quality merchandise it should in my opinion 
demand not only a reduction in price from 
the ice cream manufacturers but should also 
demand a higher quality of ice cream than 
is supplied to the cut rate store, hot dog 
stand, and any number of other stands that 
have gradually cut into the volume of drug 
stores which at one time were practically 
the only sources of ice cream. Over the terri- 
tory I cover I find many different grades of 
ice cream. In most places there is an ice 
cream war. 

Practically all of the ice cream companies 
have cut their prices to the retail druggist 
only on the pint package that retails for 
15c which is not such a good cream. For 
this product they charge 85c a gallon. This 
shows 20% off of their prices of four years 
ago, but they recommend and have in- 
fluenced the majority of retail druggists to 
sell their ice cream at a retail price of 15c 
a pint thereby cutting their price 40% 
whereby the manufacturer who has this vast 
saving in raw material has only cut his 
price to us 20%. Moreover they have not

General News Items 

Can you realize that it is less than three 
months before the Charlotte convention? 

Mr. J. B. Connell was in Chapel Hill on 
February 27 to attend the Kreisler concert. 
He informed us that he was shortly resign- 
ing his position with the W. W. Parker 
Drug Co., in Henderson, to accept a similar 
one with the Kerner Drug Co. in the same 

The Rich Square Drug Co. was a heavy 

loser in one of the most destructive fires 
the town has experienced in years. The fire 
broke out on the morning of February 27 
and the entire building in which the drug 
store was located was completely destroyed. 
The fire was discovered on the second floor 
and had gained such headway that it was 
all the firemen could do to prevent it from 
spreading to adjoining buildings. The drug 
store owners saved part of their stock and 
fixtures which was partially covered with 
insurance. The building was also partially 
covered by insurance. 

Mr. W. G. Cousins, Charlotte druggist, 
was slashed on the left shoulder a week or 
two ago by a negro caught attempting to 
steal a box of candy. The negro escaped.

Doctors and Druggists Meet' 

At the January meeting of the Catawba 
/alley Medical Society a committee was ap- 
pointed to invite the druggists living in the 
'Ounties of Burke, Caldwell, Lincoln, and 
Catawba to meet with the committee on the 
ifternoon of February 23 "to establish a 
nore cordial feeling between the two great 
professions, and to discuss in a harmonious 
nanner a few of the problems that affect us 
''ointly as doctors and druggists. ' ' Almost 
very druggist of these counties accepted the 
nvitation. Mr. W. L. Moose, of the Board 
)f Pharmacy, was also present, and outlined 
vhat his committee from the N. C. P. A. 
tvas trying to do along the lines the doctors 
;iad in mind. Other pharmacists stated the 
problems of present-day pharmacy. A com- 

mittee of druggists was appointed, one from 
each county, to confer with the committee 
of doctors in regard to solving mutual prob- 
lems. The druggists were asked to be the 
guests of the Catawba Valley Medical So- 
ciety at the March 14 meeting to be held 
in Hickory. As we go to press details of 
the meeting are lacking but a glance at the 
program guarantees a worth-while and in- 
teresting session. Talks were to be made by 
both physicians and druggists. 

Incompatible Prescription 

Mr. L. Craig Lewis, of Belmont, 
submits the following answer to the 
prescription problem asked in last 
month's issue of the JOURNAL: 

"When the bromides come in con- 
tact with the sodium bicarbonate solu- 
tion effervescence ensues, carbon diox- 
ide being formed and liberated." 

An anonymous correspondent sug- 
gests the same reason except that he 
explains why the bromides solution 
decomposes the bicarbonate. He 
states the fruit acid in the syrup of 
raspberry and perhaps the fluidgly- 
cerate of glycyrrhiza are sufficiently 
acid to decompose sodium bicarbonate 
with the formation of gas. 

Pharmacists Licensed 

Six new pharmacists were licensed to 
practice in this State following examina- 
tions held in Chapel Hill on March 14-15

Sharp and Dohme Holds Annual 

Stockholders of Sharp and Dohme, Inc., 
held their annual meeting in Baltimore on 
March 1. Satisfaction was expressed with 
the progress made during the past year. 
Particular interest was shown in the annual 
report of President A. Homer Smith, which 
showed the strong cash position of the com- 
pany and also that the $350,000 mortgage on 
the Philadelphia laboratories had been paid 
off and satisfied in advance of its maturity. 
The stockholders expressed their satisfac- 
tion in the President's report of the phar- 
maceutical and biological sales of the com- 
pany, particularly on leading specialties. 
The present Board of Directors was unani- 
mously re-elected as well as the present

course, many factor 
responsible for pres 
cut-day conditions. Regardless of these 
however, it has been shown time and tinn 
again that one of the major trade evill 
destroying credit, adding to overhead ex 
pense, tying up capital, and killing profit 
is the purchase of merchandise that does no 1 
sell. Such products only add to the cost o: 
goods sold. The higher that figure tin 
lower the gross margin, the lower the grosi 
margin the less the opportunity for ne 
profit. Expenses have a way of going or! 
whether business is good or not. These fact:

cist's greatest asset? "Then,'' say Eli

Of particular interest is the announcement 
of the marriage of Miss Janie Gilbert Burns 
and Mr. Curtis Hill Oakley in the First 
Baptist Church in Roxboro on March thir- 
tieth. Mr. Oakley graduated from the State 
University School of Pharmacy in 1928, re- 
ceiving his license as a pharmacist in the 
same year. While in college he took a prom- 
inent part in student activities. For the 
past several years he has been associated 
with the firm of Hambrick, Austin and 
Thomas, Druggists of Roxboro. 

Mr. J. B. Marsh, druggist with Purcell's 
Drug Co., in Salisbury for the past several 
years, died suddenly from a heart attack 
about ten o'clock on the night of March 4. 
He had suffered considerably from heart 
trouble in the past year or more and about 
a month ago was confined to his bed for a 
week receiving treatment. He improved in 
health and had been at work since that time, 
having left the store at closing time on 
March 4. He was found seated in his car, 
death apparently having come just as he 
entered the automobile as the key had been 
placed in the switch. Mr. Marsh was a na- 
tive of Lillington, but moved to Salisbury 
about twenty years ago. He was associated 
with the Empire Drug Co., the former Pro- 

fessional Drug Store, and later with the 
Main Pharmacy for a number of years. For 
over four years lie had been connected with 
the Purcell Drug Stores in Salisbury.

reduced their prices a penny on the bulk to 
us which, as shown above, costs them 40% 
less. The only reduction the companies have 
made is on the package the druggist has to 
sell for 15c and I imagine with all the hot 
dog stands selling this package it has 
doubled the manufacturing business and by 
so doing the ice cream manufacturer will 
make, in my estimation, three times as much 
money at the present cost of materials than 
he did four years ago at the price then paid 
for raw materials. The big ice cream manu- 
facturers (all fine people) may or may not 
be justifiable in this 15c a pint ice cream 
but I do think they should reduce the price 
to the drug trade on bulk and regular ice 

In some locations I believe that druggists 
may have benefited by a reduction in price 
but I do not see any wisdom in cutting our 
price to any greater percentage than the 
manufacturer cut it to us. Personally I 
recommend the druggist sticking to quality 
and either demanding the ice cream manu- 
facturers to give us a product at the right 
price or to begin making some kind of ar- 
rangement to manufacture our own ice 
cream. If there is anyone present who has 
had success in making his cream, I hope he 
will give us the benefit of his experience. 
I thank you.

Charlotte Calls 

Less than two months from now the North 
Carolina Pharmaceutical Association will 
hold its forty-fourth annual meeting in 
Charlotte. Under the general direction of 
Local Secretary J. P. Stowe, assisted by 
the druggists of the city and the officers 
and members of the Traveling Men 's Aux- 
iliary, big efforts will be put forth to make 
the convention a fine success. The enter- 
tainment features will be typical of Char- 
lotte and of the T.M.A., features that must 
surely arouse the enthusiasm of every per- 
son who benefits from them. The women in 
attendance particularly will be pleased with 
what is being planned for their especial 
entertainment. The men will find a double 
interest because they too will enjoy them- 
selves and in addition be provided with a 
business program that will offer a fine oppor- 
tunity for taking joint counsel with one 
another in the trying times in which we are 
living. Actions taken by the state legisla- 
ture and the national Congress will have a 
far reaching effect upon the drug business 
and these effects will be in such a stage by 
middle .June as to require concerted efforts 
to meet them to greatest advantage. Two 
completely new problems for North Carolina 
druggists will be a. sales tax in some form 
and the sale of 3.2 per cent. beer. Both of 
these problems will present difficulties for 
druggists that will be a bit different from 
the way they will affect retailers of any 
other sort. How best to pass both on and 
out to consumers is a question that will not 
have been answered when the Charlotte con- 
vention gets under way. Other sorts of ques- 
tions, perennial in nature, will also need dis- 
cussion and action. 

There will be Association members who 
will say, perhaps only to themselves, "Oh 
well, the Legislature has finally adjourned"' 
(if it has by that time!) "and there is no 

need to hold a druggists ' convention now,] 
so I won 't go. ' ' Surely this is not a wise 
position to take since legislative efforts rep- 
resent but one sort of activity that an asso- 
ciation engages upon. So long as pharma- 
cists practice, they must always face varied 
perplexities that require group discussions 
and policies for efficient handling. And the 
summer of 1933 will offer plenty of these 
perplexities ! Other members, perhaps, will 
feel disgruntled because a sales tax passed: 
the Legislature and will blame the Associa •. 
tion because it passed, and seeing that the 
evil was not averted, will feel that the Asso- 
ciation has failed them utterly and . hence 
is not entitled to their continued affiliation. 
This would be not only untrue but highly 
unfair. The Association fought nobly to 
stave off a sales tax, and so did the North' 
Carolina Merchants' Association. If one is 
to be blamed, the other should be also. If 
both are condemned for failing after strenu-t 
ous fighting, then both should be thanked 
at least for keeping it from being passed 
two years earlier. 

Several speakers are scheduled to talk at 
Charlotte, but the main efforts of Associa- 
tion officers will be centered in getting the 
members to engage fully and freely in open 
forum discussions of common problems in 
order that varied suggestions and experiences 
may serve as guides to ways that succeed 
and to methods that ought to be avoided 
or discontinued. 

The next issue of the Journal will carry! 
an illustrated, detailed program of the Char- 
lotte Convention. Watch for it. 

Inflation and Returning Prosperity 

With the United States definitely off the 
gold standard and with the President and 
Congress firmly committed to inflationary 
measures with a controlled currency, it is 
obvious that retail prices are going up and 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


equally obvious that there will result greatly 
increased buying on the part of farmers, 
etc., who get increased markets and prices 
for their products. This is indeed good 
news to retailers and the country generally, 
because once the upward swing of the pen- 
dulum begins (and it has started upward) a 
cycle "will commence that will benefit every- 
body except persons with fixed incomes or 
fixed salaries that cannot change for some- 
time after inflation begins. A producer finds 
a market for his goods at profitable prices. 
He immediately increases production, em- 
ploying more people who spend their earn- 
ings. As more people spend, production 
keeps pace, and thus dollars turn over and 
over. As the dollar gets cheaper (because 
the government prints more of them), prices 
rise and business in every line is stimulated 
to greater production, greater consumption, 
greater prices. Since the manufacturing 
and retail business felt depression first, it 
will be first to feel returning prosperity. We 
predict that by fall the druggists in this 
State will be answering the question "How's 
business" with the reply "Business is 

In the preceding paragraph we spoke of 
inflation helping business men but hurting 
salaried folk. We want to say a word now 
about the latter. There are at least two 
hundred (perhaps more) registered phar- 
macists in North Carolina who are employed 
on a salary basis entirely. Their salaries 
have in the most cases been greatly reduced. 
Lessened store profits have brought this 
about. It is not unusual now for a fully 
licensed prescriptionist to be compelled to 
work for seventy-five dollars a month or 
even less. A few of them may be worth no 
more, now or later. But the majority are 
entitled to immediate salary increases when 
store sales and profits increase and the cost 
I of inflated living goes up. If the inflated 
dollar they earn is able to buy but eighty 
cents worth of the things they must have to 
live upon, then the net effect is as though 
their salaries had been cut another twenty 
per cent. It is not for us to suggest what 
a particular employee is worth to a certain 
store, but we do hold that when or if the 
\ retail drug business becomes more profitable 
i that one of its first effects should be felt by 

good registered men who are now working 
for about half of what any sort of registered 
man received six years ago. Owners should 
not wait until the law of supply and demand 
forces them to increase salaries : instead 
they should, on their own initiative, grant 
increases just as soon as the business justi- 
fies the raise. In such fashion they will 
earn and get the gratitude of clerks, which 
gratitude will express itself in greater ef- 
forts and heightened loyalty. The writer 
must suffer a severe salary reduction for the 
next two years regardless of how little his 
dollars will bring when dollars get cheaper. 
Perhaps this fact gives him an acute fellow- 
feeling for others who work for salaries, 
and prompts him to write these lines in 
behalf of employed pharmacists. Whatever 
his motive, however, his contention is firmly 
based on the principle that employers who 
have themselves been terribly hurt by the 
depression should be glad to raise the sal- 
aries of those whom they employ when in- 
creased sales and profits permit. We be- 
lieve that it will be good business to do this 
rather than wait until a fine clerk is offered 
more elsewhere before agreeing to give him 
more pay. To raise him voluntarily as soon 
as possible will win his earnest gratitude and 
stimulate his finest endeavor. To do it only 
if another bid forces the step may have a 
different effect. 

Better business, Mr. Proprietor, and may 
it come about quickly. Larger profits, too, 
because your toil and risks entitle you to 
them. But remember— -you were once a 
salaried man yourself. 

What the Legislature Did 

As these lines are written no one can 
say what the Legislature did because it is 
still in session. Presumably it will pass a 
sales tax that is conceded to be a general 
sales tax on everything in some percentage 
around three. Ad valorem taxes having 
been abolished, there seemed no other reve- 
nue but a tax on sales to balance the budget. 
Privilege taxes, corporation taxes, etc., were 
"upped" but it seemed dangerous to in- 
crease them too much because of running in- 
to the law of diminishing returns. Certain 
agencies of government and schools had to 
be continued, and though they were all re- 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

duc-ed in appropriations for salaries, etc., 
there still loomed a gap between income and 
outgo that somehow had to be closed. And 
so — the sales tax. Our single hope is that 
before this issue appears the Legislature 
will someway, somehoAv, make it mandatory 
that the tax be forced onto the consumer for 
whom it is intended. 

When the Legislature adjourns we will 
attempt to tell you what it did. But it is 
too early now because this particular As- 
sembly has a habit of passing something 
and then going back and killing it, and 
vice versa. The leaves will perhaps be full 
grown when the Legislature adjourns. We 
hope it is not in session when the Charlotte 
convention is held in June. Personally, 
we are tired of it. 

Beer in Drug Stores 

When this issue of the Journal reaches 
its readers, beer will be a commodity of 
legal sale throughout North Carolina. Nat- 
urally we are interested in the question 
of how many drug stores will be handling 
beer when it becomes available for distri- 

Beer of 3.2 per cent, strength has been 
duly declared non-intoxicating. So it is in 
one-bottle amounts to the average person. 
But percentages must be changed to actual 
alcohol volume when more than one bottle 
is drunk by persons not used to alcohol. 
Only hogs and inexperienced, enthusiastic 
young people will swill enough beer to get 
drunk, but we hazard the guess that the 
number of these will be great enough to be 
reckoned with. Concentrate enough of these 
folks at one drug store and the presence 
of them with their boisterous and objection- 
able ways will be quite sufficient to drive 
away some mighty good customers who pre- 
fer to trade where the environment is less 

For the first month or so beer is going to 
be a very profitable item of sale in this 
State. It 'will be quite the thing for awhile 
for a group to line up at the fountain, pre- 
tend it is a bar, announce that "this one 
is on me," and with "prosits" or some 
modern equivalent of "bottoms up," enjoy 
one round after another of the foaming 
brew. This will not be so bad if the prac- 

tice soon loses its novelty, and seeing that 
it is not naughty, only pleasant, to drink an 
occasional bottle, people gradually come to 
treat beer as it is treated in Germany. But 
if we Americans have reached the point 
where we will insist on gearing ourselves 
beyond our speed abilities by alcoholic 
stimulation — even if its only 3.2 per cent, 
efficient — then we shall be sorry that drug 
stores will gradually become by reason of 
their convenience and late closing hours, the 
greatest single centers of sales. 

Sometimes we wonder if we are not too 
jealous of the reputation of drug stores. If 
in our devoted desire to see the public re- 
spect us as it respects doctors and to see 
the practitioners of pharmacy proud of their 
calling, we do not overlook the practical 
fact that Avith too many drug stores open 
some of them feel that they must forget 
pharmacy and get altogether money-minded 
in their methods. 

We honestly want this little publication to 
serve the interests of every pharmacist in 
North Carolina. To this end we try to see 
matters as they are and not as in visionary 
moments we may want them to be. If, there- 
fore, in dealing with such a question as 
beer in drug stores, we speak too strongly 
in terms of what would be best if we could 
have the best, we overlook that which is 
necessary for conditions that are not the 
best, then Ave would like our readers to Avrite 
to us when or if we run off onto a track 
that is no longer used for modern travel. 

Death Takes its Toll 

We have been especially saddened during 
the past month to learn of the deaths of tAvo 
druggists for whom Ave had a great affection. 
In the passing of Mr. William Justus, of 
Hendersonville, and Mr. William Niestlie. of 
Wilmington, the Association lost tAvo of its 
oldest and most valued members, and the 
profession at large lost two men Avho would 
have graced any calling. Younger men will 
take their places, since the world always 
moves on, but the Justus ' and Niestlies Avho 
die do not fade from memory quickly because 
Avhen such qualities as they possessed and 
exercised are removed there is ahvays a gap 
left that is not easily bridged. 

The Carolina Journal, of Pharmacy 


Mr. Justus and his store were synonymous 
with the growth of Hendersonville from a 
little mountain resort into a small city that 
one always enjoys and wants to re-visit. This 
development was in no small sense promoted 
by Mr. Justus with his fine sense of civic 
pride and responsibility. The soul of cour- 
tesy, integrity, and fairness himself, he 
helped in a big way to instill these virtues 
into the personnel of any undertaking he 
engaged upon, with the result that as civic 
worker or man of business the thing he did 
or helped to do had no element of pettiness 
or of craftiness but had only open faced 
honesty and square dealing. 

Mr. Niestlie's life was lived in a more 
secluded manner. Belonging to the old 
school of apothecaries he found the four 
walls of his drug store a kingdom sufficient 
unto itself and for him. If ever pride of 
profession dominated any man, Mr. Niestlie 
was that man. His prescription department 
was a sort of shrine before which he laid 
his finest contributions of self and soul. 
Pharmacy was to him not only a noble science 
but an ennobling art, and this writer, find- 
ing him busily working upon some difficult 
prescription with a happy gleam in his eyes, 
has always felt humble in the presence of 
such a spirit of devoted service. Ill health 
finally took him away from the work he 
loved and forced him to spend his last years 
in leisure. But we venture to gue§s that 
many and many of those last hours found 
him in fancy still doing the thing to which 
he dedicated his life — practicing pharmacy. 

Two different sorts of men, both of them 
admired, respected, and loved. Both gone 
now, and as we pen these lines we feel the 
futility of trying to pay the tribute our love 
for them would pay if only we could express 
the feelings that the lives of two such men 

Selling a License 

A few days ago we went into a so-called 
drug store expecting to find a registered 
pharmacist in charge. On inquiry it de- 
veloped that a sort of soda-magazine shop 
had employed a retired pharmacist to put 
up his license in the place, come around 

about once a day, and thus give the appear- 
ance of legality to a store that is in no sense 
of the word a drug store. The owner ap- 
preciated the commercial value of having his 
shop called a drug store and the pharmacist 
he employed(!) had so little appreciation of 
his license that he was willing to sell it for 
a mess of pottage. This same sort of thing 
happens in every state. Fortunately in 
North Carolina the State Board Inspector 
has been able to stop a great deal of the 
practice but it still goes on here and there. 

In these days of depression a little money 
coming from any source is a welcome visitor, 
and the best of us are apt to do things to 
get it which we would scorn doing if money 
were plentiful. But even in these tight 
times we ought to draw the line somewhere, 
and among the lines that ought not to be 
crossed is the one of a pharmacist who will 
connive at undermining the structure of 
pharmacy by selling his license to a store 
owner who wants to trade on the prestige 
of drug stores by calling some little hole-in- 
the-wall a drug store, and getting away with 
it because he can point to a pharmacist's 
license as his legal excuse. 

Change in Board Examinations 

The Journal is just in receipt of informa- 
tion from Secretary-Treasurer F. W. Han- 
cock to the following effect: 

"The examination rules of the Xorth 
Carolina Board of Pharmacy have been 
amended in the following manner : 

"A general average of 75%, with not less 
than 60% in any branch, except Practical 
Pharmacy wherein not less than 75% shall 
be required to pass. Effective from June 1, 
1933. Applicants making a general average 
of 75% in the written examinations, but fail- 
ing to make 75% in the practical must re- 
take and pass the latter before license will 
be granted. ■ 

"The change applies to both the Regis- 
tered Pharmacist and Assistant Pharmacist 
and makes the minimum passing percentage 
seventy-five in Practical Pharmacy only, in- 
stead of sixty. There is no change in the 
minimum of the written branches. ' '

A Word About the Sale of Drug Products in Grocery Stores 

By J. A. Goode 
President N.A.E.D. 

In response to a statement issued by me 
outlining the position of the National Asso- 
ciation of Retail Druggists with respect to 
the sale of drug products in grocery stores, 
I have received possibly a thousand letters 
from the members expressing their approval. 

In reply to a blank inserted with the 
statement mentioned above in the American 
Druggist inviting druggists throughout the 
country to endorse the position through a 
written expression of their sentiments, I 
am advised by Mr. Herbert B. Mayes, the 
Editor, that approximately ten thousand 
favorable answers have been received to 
date. Chairman Dargavel and I visited 
New York a few days ago and viewed this 
large collection of responses exhibited to us 
by Mr. Mayes. We also discussed the ques- 
tion at length with Mr. Jerry McQuade, 
Editor of Drug Topics, who has spent sev- 
eral weeks in the southwest personally ob- 
serving the rapidly increasing sale of drug 
products in grocery stores. It Avas Mr. 
McQuade 's opinion that the subject demands 
immediate consideration by the industry and 
exhibited information sufficient to convince 
those who would minimize the problem that 
the condition threatens not only the sol- 
vency of the drug industry, but also en- 
dangers the public Avelfare. 

In the interest of public health, as pointed 
out in my statement as the basis for one ob- 
jection by the Association to the sale of 
drug products in grocery stores, I requested 
Mr. E. D. Keim, General Sales Manager of 
the E. E. Squibb & Sons, to invite manu- 
facturers to form a committee with whom 
this subject might be discussed. I am ad- 
vised that the committee is now practically 
completed. Wholesalers have been invited 

to name committees, as well as the large 
chain store organizations. This represents 
approximately one hundred per cent, of the 
distributors of drug products in drug stores. 
The distributors committee will, at an early 
date, hold a meeting with the manufacturers 
committee in the hope of perfecting plans 
through which the drug industry will be 
protected and the public health safeguarded. 
The various state associations will, no doubt, 
endorse the plan at their coming meetings. 
This is certainly one question on which all 
of the drug industry should be found in com- 
plete agreement. Chairman Dargavel and I 
have not, in any sense, dictated as to the 
personnel of the manufacturers committee. 

While it is not practical for me to attempt 
to answer at once each and every one of the 
letters I have received on this subject, please 
be assured of my deep appreciation for your 
co-operation and that I will acknowledge 
your communication in the due course of 
time. When the Committee is ready to func- 
tion, in light of the figures before me at 
this time, I shall not be surprised that the 
officers of your Association shall be in posi- 
tion to speak in behalf of the overwhelming 
majority of retail druggists of the country 
by direct request. 

It would please me very much to know that 
every druggist had posted in his store the 
statement outlining the position of the Na- 
tional Association of Eetail Druggists on 
the sale of drug products in grocery stores 
and it will please you, I am sure, to watch 
the progress made in this controversy by 
your National Association. 

With j'our full co-operation, I am con- 
strained to believe that a solution satisfac- 
tory in every way will be accomplished.

I've done a lot of traveling — 

My day and in my time. 

I've seen a lot of thrilling sights 

In almost every clime. 

I've won a lot of pleasant friends — 

Fine people everywhere — 

Both poor and rich — they're rea.1 folks, too- 

For whom I've learned to care. 

I've spent a lot of happy hours 

From Arcachon to Nome, 

But — Gee ! I want to tell you, Folks, 

It's great to get back home. 

You start out on your journey, fresh, 

A-bubbling o'er with zeal, 

Your mind a'teeming full of plans 

Of things to do, and feel 

That life for you means traveling, 

A-seeing folks and things. 

Constructing bridges, writing books 

Or selling piston rings. 

You keep so mighty occupied 

You haven't time to gloom, 

But — Gee! I want to tell you, Folks, 

It's great to get back home ! 

Perhaps it may eventuate 

ou're off for Europe's shore 

To see old fated London Tower 

The Louvre and Sphinx of yore, 

The Rome of Ancient Caesar's time. 

The Greece of Plato's day, 

Or may be China or Japan 

Is where you've spent your stay. 

A wondrous trip, you fondly muse, 

Neath Heaven's star-decked dome, 

But — Gee! I want to tell you, Folks, 

It's great to get back home! 

I've done a lot of traveling. 

But this I'll never learn — 

To quite forget my home back there. 

And often times I'll yearn 

For old Houssain's gay magic rug 

To whisk me back the while, 

To glimpse the spot so dear to me 

.nd see a loved one's smile. 

There're many wond'rous sights to see, 

From Hudson Bay to Rome, 

But — Geei I want to tell you. Folks, 

It's great to get back home!

The Legislative Situation 

This is written on the one-hundred and 
twelfth day of the Legislative Session, 
which exceeds the sixty-day Constitutional 
term by fifty-two days. And at this late 
time, even, the end is nowhere in sight. 
Of course, it is possible to bring the session 
to a close by May 5th, however, this appears 
most unlikely, because of the present un- 
settled set-up. 

"While it is true that most of the major 
pieces of legislation have already been 
enacted into law, there remains the big prob- 
lem of providing sufficient revenue to bal- 
ance the state 's budget for the next bien- 
nium and to provide for disbursements under 
the appropriation bill that has already been 
adopted. To meet these requirements an 
additional eight or ten million dollars must 
be raised from new sources of revenue. The 
only new sources left appear to be found 
only in the sales tax field. The form that 
is to be decided upon even now is uncertain. 

It is true that the House passed the 
Budget Revenue Bill carrying a general sales 
tax of two per cent. The Senate, however, 
following the action of its Finance Com- 
mittee is expected to raise this rate to three 
per cent, if it adopts the general sales tax. 
Sentiment for the selected commodity tax 
has been growing for the latter form in 
this body during the past few days to the 
extent that a large number of law makers 
think it will be substituted for the general 
sales tax adopted by the House. In this 
event it is felt that the House would con- 
cur in this action. Regardless of which form 
that will be adopted, there will be a bitter 
fight on both forms. The best bet seems to 
be that in the final analysis a general sales 
tax carrying a rate of from two to three 
per cent will be enacted into law. 

With this in view, our big task is to ob- 
tain some sort of compulsory collection pro- 
vision that will make it possible for the mer- 

chant to collect the tax. Otherwise, it will 
be disastrous in application and effect. The 
sub-finance committee worked out a scheme 
calling for the use of stamps by the mer- 
chant purchased by the State. This plan 
met with such strong protests from the mer- 
chants of the State that it was abandoned 
by the Finance Committee. Yet, the plan 
proposed is the most feasible one that has 
been proposed up to the present time. 

Attempts were made to substitute the se- 
lected commodity tax proposal for the gen- 
eral sales tax submitted by the Finance Com- 
mittee. After a bitter fight this plan was 
voted down. In this connection, it may be 
said that the bill submitted included a great 
many more articles than the measure pro- 
posed at the 1931 Legislature. The addi- 
tions were made in order to bring up the 
revenue. One of the big objections to the 
selected commodity tax is that the revenue 
it will produce will not begin to meet the 
needs of the State. Its supporters claim that 
the revenue it will produce will exceed ten 
million dollars, which estimate to others is 
unreasonably high, even with the many arti- 
cles that have been added to the 1931 bill. It 
is thought that its yield will not exceed six 
million dollars, while it is conceded that the 
general sales tax will produce more than 
three million dollars for each one per cent 
levy. The following are the articles taxed 
by the selected commodity tax bill and the 
rates of taxation : 

Tobacco, Etc. 

Manufacturer Tobacco: 

Cigars: A tax varying from $± to $10 
per thousand. 

Cigarettes: A tax of two cents per pack- 
age upon all packages containing 12 cig- 
arettes or less and a tax of 3 cents per 
package upon all packages containing 
twenty cigarettes. 

Smoking tobacco, a tax of one cent for 
each five cents of retail price. 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


Shot Gun shells, $4.00 per thousand. 

Rifle and pistol cartridges, $2 per thous- 

Candy retailing at 50 cents per pound 
or more, 1 cent on each ten cents of retail 

Playing cards, 5 cents on each 50 cents or 
fractional part thereof. 

Malt extract: ten per cent, when used for 
other than by commercial bankers and to 
malt used in industry. 


Automobiles, auto trucks or trailers re- 
tailing for $400 and less than $1000, $5.00; 
those retailing for $1000 and less than 
$2000, $10.00 ; $2000 and less than $3000, 
$20.00; $3000 and over, $30.00. 

Admissions and Amusements 

Admissions 35 to 50 cents a tax of five 

Less than 35 cents a tax of one cent for 
each 10 cents or fraction thereof. 

Where admission is more than 50 cents a 
tax of one cent for each ten cents or frac- 
tion thereof. 

Soft Drinks 

A tax of 70 cents on every gallon of syrup 
for fountain use. 

Bottled drinks a tax of 1 cent for each 
5 cents of retail selling price, to be collected 
through crowns furnished by the State. 
Malt Liquors 

This tax is now being worked out by 
joint Senate and Finance Committees. 


Two cents per pound. 


A tax of two cents per gallon. 

Intra State Passenger Fares 

Fares between 25 and 50 cents, a tax of 
5 cents; 50 cents and $1.50, 10 cents; $1.50 
and $3.00, 15 cents; over $3.00, 20 cents; 
no tax on fares under twenty-five cents. 

Electrical Energy 
Two per cent tax on all domestic and 
I commercial electricity. This tax to be col- 
lected by the power companies and paid to 
State, as is done in re the Federal Tax. 
' This does not apply to industrial users. 

Illuminating and Heating Gas 

Five per cent tax to be handled as tax on 

Telephone Instruments 
A tax of ten cents per month upon each 
telephone instrument. 

Wearing Apparel 

5 per cent on men's suits and overcoats 
retailing for $10 and less than $20.00; 10 
per cent on suits and overcoats retailing for 
$20.00 and more; 5 per cent on all women's 
dresses, cloaks and furs retailing for $10.00 
and less than $20.00; 10 per cent on all such 
retailing for $20.00 and more; 5 per cent on 
all men's and women's shoes retailing for 
$2.00 or more; 5 per cent on all men's and 
women's hats retailing for $2.00 and more; 
5 per cent on all bathing suits and luggage. 

Sporting Goods 

A tax of ten per cent on all sporting 
goods retailing for $1.00 or more. 

Tires and Inner Tubes 

A tax of five per cent. 

Chewing Gum 
A tax of one cent on each package. 

Pharmacists Removed from Pro- 
fessional Tax 

After four unsuccessful attempts to get 
pharmacists removed from the professional 
tax, we succeeded in getting the Senate 
sitting in Committee of the whole to do 
this at today 's session. We are hopeful 
that this additional tax may be kept from 
being placed upon pharmacists. However, 
there will be danger of the provision im- 
posing the tax going back in along with 
physicians, attorneys, etc., until the final 
readings of the revenue bill. 

3.2 Beer 

The sale of 3.2 beer will be lawful in 
North Carolina on and after May 1. Definite 
information governing the requirements of 
dealers is not available at this time. Full 
information will be furnished in a later issue 
of the Journal. In the meantime those of 
our members who desire to sell beer should 
communicate with Hon. A. J. Maxwell, Com- 
missioner of Revenue. The measure con- 
taining the machinery for the sale of beer 
is still in the process of enactment. Amend- 
ment after amendment has been adopted, 
and until the measure is finally enacted, its 
provisions will not be known.

Carolina friends frequently.

Bobbers looted the Shaw aJid McLean! 
Drug Store at Wagram early on March 28 
and secured several flashlights, some ciga-

School of Pharmacy Notes 

The students of the School of Pharmacy 
at the State University gave their annual 
dance in the Bynum gymnasium on the 
evening of April 7. Music was furnished 
by Jelly Leftwich's orchestra. A large 
number of alumni were present for the oc- 
casion. The dance leaders were Messrs. 
Clayton Curry, of Lexington, president of 
the pharmacy student body; M. L. Cline, 
of Granite Falls, president of the third year 
class; Nyal Womble, of Pittsboro, president 
of the second year class, and Harry Murrell, 
of Durham, president of the first year class. 
Members of the Faculty and their Avives 
acted as chaperones. 

During the Meek of April 10 elections 
were held for two important student offices 
and as a result Mr. R. R. Wells, of Hen- 
rietta, was chosen pharmacy representative 
on the student council, and Mr. W. H. 
Houser, was selected as president of the 
student body of the School of Pharmacy 
for the year 1933-34. Messrs. Wells and 
Houser are both members of the rising 
senior class. 

At the end of the winter quarter the 

following students were elected to member- 
ship in the Bho Chi fraternity: Messrs. F. 

B. Ham, of Greensboro; W. L. Hickman, 
of Fayetteville; M. L. Cline, Granite Falls; 
S. G. Clark, Pittsboro; and U. S. Puckett, 
of Stovall. Rho Chi is the national honorary 
pharmaceutical society and eligibility for 
membership is based on high attainment 
in scholarship, character, personality, and 
leadership. All candidates selected for 
membership must have completed 75 credit 
hours of college work. 

Of interest also to Journal readers is the 
announcement of the election by the entire 
student body of the University, of Mr. E. 

C. Daniel, Jr., of Zebulon, as editor of the 
Carolina Magazine. Young Daniel is the 
son of the Zebulon druggist and one of the 
most popular students in the University. 

An Interesting Gift 
Mr. 0. R. Black, proprietor of the Central 
Drug Store in Bessemer City, has just pre- 
sented to the School of Pharmacy Museum 
at the University a rare old hand balance 
that he secured while in charge of a dis- 
pensary in Germany immediately after the 
World War. Mr. Black saw service in 
France and was later with the Army of 
' Occupation. The dispensary was located in 
a German Civilian Hospital on the Bhine 
River and was owned by Roman Catholics. 
The balance had been used since the seven- 
teenth century. This gift is greatly prized 
by the University and has been placed in a 
conspicuous place in the pharmacy museum. 

We Knew There must be Others 
Last month Ave published in the Journal 
an article about Raleigh's Oldest Telephone 
— the one in the drug store of Mr. S. W. 
Williams which has as its number — Xo. 1. 
We also mentioned that the drug store of 
H. R. Home and Sons in Fayetteville has 
the same number and asked if any other 
drug stores in the State had the first tele- 
phone in their towns. We felt certain there 
AA-ere others and sure enough we have al- 
ready heard of three ! 

Mr. Frank Dayvault, Avho is Avith George 
C. Goodman and Co., in Mooresville, writes 
us that his firm has had the same phone 
number (and perhaps the same phone) 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

since Mooresville installed telephones. The 
letterhead in large letters shows that the 
phone number is No. 1. This is one of the 
oldest drug stores in the State having been 
established in 1879 and the proprietor, Mr. 
Geo. C. Goodman, is one of the most greatly 
beloved pharmacists in North Carolina. He 
was licensed as a pharmacist in 1881, the 
first year of the Pharmacy Act, and has 
been a member of the N. C. P. A. since 
the same year. The only reason he is not 
a charter member is because the letter of 
notification of the organization meeting 
failed to reach him! Mr. Goodman "finds 
his greatest satisfaction and pleasure in the 
fact that he has been able to hold during 
the half -century of his business career the 
patronage of his first customers and not 
only his first but the second, and sometimes 
third generations that have followed their 
antecedents in trading at Goodman's Drug 
Store. ' ' Incidentally, the store has three 
registered pharmacists, Mr. Goodman him- 
self, and Messrs. Frank W. Dayvault and 
G. S. Templeton, all members of the N. C. 
P. A. 

Mr. E. C. Daniel advises us that the first 
phone to be installed in Zebulon was the 
one in his drug store, the Zebulon Drug 
Co., and is No. 1. It was installed by the 
old Will Wynne system out of Ealeigh, and 
was a one-line system with phones at 
Knightdale, Eagle Bock, Wendell, and Zebu- 
lon. There were different rings along the 
line so that each party might know when 
some one was calling his place. From this 
line a connection was made for ten miles 
in various directions from Zebulon to coun- 
try stores, Avhich put the drug store in 
touch with the surrounding community. Mr. 
Daniel states that some of these old lines 
are now in use under the Bell system. He 
further says, "our phone was put in in 
190S and I believe until now it is the most 
used phone in Zebulon. We are very proud 
of our number. ' ' 

Mr. C. B. Miller tells us that the first 
long distance telephone ever established in 
Goldsboro was placed in the store of the 
Goldsboro Drug Co. A few months there- 
after a small exchange was installed in the 
upstairs of the drug store building. The 

first telephone ever established in the local 
exchange was placed in Mr. Miller's store 
and numbered, ' ' One. ' ' The firm still en- 
joys the distinction of having the same 
number. This was over thirty years ago: 
and the number has never been changed 
during that time. The Goldsboro Drug 
Co., is another of North Carolina's old 
drug stores as it was established in 1870 
and boasts of "fifty-nine years of continu- 
ous service. ' ' 

We know : there are still other drug stores 
having No. 1. How about yours? 


William Niestlie 

On April 11 news reached us of the death 
of Mr. William Niestlie that day at his 
home in Wilmington. He was probably the 
nil lest pharmacist in the Cape Fear capital 
as he had been in the drug business since 
October, 1878. The writer had known him 
since earliest childhood and during ail the 
years he had been a real friend. When we 
began work in this office Mr. Niestlie im- 
mediately wrote us and expressed his pleas- 
ure that we were associated with the organi 
zation that he so dearly loved. Again and 
again he has helped us with this section of 
the Journal and at Christmas, Easter, etc., 
there was always a word of greeting. We 
first knew the State Association through 
him. We remember one day he called up 
the relative 's house in which we were visit 
ing and said, "I am calling up my custom- 
ers to ask that they order everything they 
need today as I want to close my store to 
morrow to attend the meeting of the State 
Pharmaceutical Association ' '. He has been 
a member since just after he was licensed in 
18S6 and frequently contributed papers at 
the annual meetings. He was made an 
honorary life member in 1932. He could 
not often attend the conventions but there 
was always some message from him and he 
never failed to contribute a basket of 
Venus Fly Traps. Shortly after his seven 
tieth birthday in early 1930 he wrote us 
as follows : "I have been for many years 
the Old Venus Fly Trap crank and have 
had many specimens to give pleasure at 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


the meeting. My race is nearly run as I 
have been fifty- one years behind the drug 
counter -without a break — many hours of 
labor and many steps taken daily. I feel 
thankful that God has blessed me to be able 
to wait on the public these many years. ' ' 

William Hicks Justus 

It is with genuine sorroAv that we inform 
our readers of the death of Mr. William 
Hicks Justus at his home in Henderson- 
ville on March (i. Mr. Justus had always 
taken the keenest interest in the State As- 
sociation having been a member since the 
year he was licensed— 1887. He was born 
in Hendersouville on January 12, 1857 and 
had lived in that town his entire life. One 
of his keenest pleasures was in recalling 
events of the days when his native city was 
just a cross-roads town. He was graduated 
from Vanderbilt University in 1886 with 
"first honors" and with the degree of 
Ph.G. Several years prior to this date — on 
January 1, 1882 — Mr. Justus opened a drug 
store in the building at 218-220 N. Main 
St. in partnership with Dr. Columbus Few 
under the name of C. Few and Co. Upon 
his graduation he took entire charge of the 

business and the name was changed in 
1889 to the Justus Pharmacy. About two 
years ago his health broke down and he 
retired from active business in favor of his 
son, Mr. Fred Justus, but he still retained 
a real interest in all matters pertaining 
to pharmacy. He had not been able to at- 
tend an Association meeting since the 
Asheville convention in 1929, but he still 
retained his membership in the organiza- 
tion. In his death the Association has lost 
one of its most devoted members and the 
druggists of North Carolina a most loyal 

Carl T. Miller 
News has just reached us of the death 
in Wilmington of Mr. Carl T. Miller fol- 
lowing an illness of several weeks. Mr. 
Miller was born in the Cape Fear city on 
July 19, 1SS3 and received his pharma- 
ceutical education at the State University. 
He was licensed in 1905 and had been a 
member of the State Association since 1916. 
He had practiced his profession in Wil- 
mington, Biltmore, Asheville, Greensboro, 
Raleigh, Roxboro and for the past year or 
more had been the proprietor of the Peo- 
ples Drug Store in Wilmington.

In the pages that follow will be found a complete program 
of the Charlotte convention of the North Carolina Pharmaceu- 
tical Association. Appearing also on these pages are photo- 
graphs of persons taking a prominent part in the convention. 
Everything at this time indicates an unusually large attendance 
and a highly valuable meeting. Charlotte affords a good setting 
for the convention. One oftentimes hears the statement that 
Charlotte is the best of the larger cities in North Carolina. Sev- 
eral reasons are advanced in support of this statement. Whether 
it is the BEST or next best is beside the point; it IS a fine place 
to visit or in which to live. We happen to know the place well 
and are among its real ' 'boosters." Because we like it, admire 
its people, and enjoy its many advantages, we are glad that it 
was chosen as the meeting point this year for the druggists of 
the State, and we genuinely hope that it will be a sort of Mecca 
in June to which hundreds of druggists will travel.

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


The man responsible for this year's convention of the Association and the man who 
for a great many years has served the Association in almost every capacity, and who dur- 
ing the session of the General Assembly this year as Chairman of the Legislative Committee 
was one of the most loyal and effective workers that represented the Association in Ealeigh. 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


A Tribute to Jim Stowe 

As indicated elsewhere in this issue, Mr. 
J. P. Stowe is Local Secretary in charge of 
the Charlotte convention. This is but one of 
the numerous efforts that Mr. Stowe has put 
forth for the Association. As a member 
since 1906 he has served in almost every 
phase of Association activity. For example, 
we would hesitate to guess how much of his 
time and money have been given the organi- 
zation this year in going to Ealeigh and 
working hard and effectively to protect re- 
tail druggists from ill-advised legislation. 
And so it has been for years. He has worked 
equally hard at his job of arranging for the 
Charlotte meeting, and Avhether the members 
recognize it or not, the fact remains that 
without Jim Stowe the Association would 
have accomplished less — been less useful — 
had he not given of himself unstintedly for 
the advancement and protection of drug in- 
terests in North Carolina. The brief space 
permitted here forbids details of his active 
efforts, but we can say without danger of 
denial that the Association is a much more 
fruitful organization than it would have 
been had Mr. Stowe chosen to be a member 
in name only instead of doing everything he 
possibly could to make the organization at 
all times an agency of real usefulness. We 
wish that the Association had about a hun- 
dred Jim Stowe 's in it; we are glad that we 
have in him a worker in the realest sense 
of the word. 

Quality or Price Appeal? 

John Euskin, the great English author, 
once said, ' ' There is hardly anything in 
the world that some man cannot make a little 
Avorse and sell a little cheaper, and the people 
who consider the price only are this man's 
lawful prey.''' 

This statement was made in the last cen- 
tury, but it has greater application now 
than at the time it was written because 
more people at this time are making and 
selling sub-quality merchandise that has 
nothing on earth but a price appeal to recom- 
mend it to the buyer. 

We have often insisted that a retailer 
must definitely make up his mind between 
goods of quality and goods of price appeal. 
A mixture of the two makes an incompatible 
combination. A druggist must stick con- 
sistently to one policy or another. If his 
business is based on quality goods that he 
can honestly and sincerely endorse for value, 
he should never depart from this policy 
even once for some ' ' deal ' ' about which he 
knows nothing except its apparent large 
profit, because if the stuff is sorry and his 
customers, who have been trusting him, find 
out that it is sorry, and they usually find 
out, then a reputation for quality is wrecked 
and the loss involved is greater than any 
profit that could have been realized from the 

On the other hand, a druggist may decide 
to go in for volume and in competition 
with any and every other sort of store in 
his community. His policy calls for publicity 
of the paid sort and his pull is at the purse 
strings of the bargain buyer. By reason of 
such a policy he becomes a definitely differ- 
ent sort of dealer from the first sort. Natu- 
rally he cannot guarantee his merchandise 
nor need he try to, because he is going after 
volume, rapid sales, and quick turnover. His 
type of trade realizes that caveat emptor 
(let the buyer beware) is at issue, and if 
such buyer gets "stung" he or she makes 
very little fuss about it. 

We are not making a brief for either sort 
of policy but Ave do repeat the statement 
that the two policies should not be mixed 
in one store. We have seen it tried and it 
simply will not work. 

Looking at the question for a moment 
from the purchaser 's point of vieAV, we are 
reminded of these lines: 

1 ' Don 't try to buy a thing too cheap 
From those with things to sell, 

Because they're goods you want to keep 
And time AAill always tell. 

"The price you paid you'll soon forget, 

The goods you get will stay; 
The price you will not long regret 

The quality you will."

A Great Local Secretary 

When the Association met last in Char- 
lotte (1921) Mr. R. K. Blair was Local 
Secretary. This writer has worked with a 
great many local secretaries and has found 
all of them willing and capable of render- 
ing a fine sort of co-operate effort in mak- 
ing the conventions successful, hut never has

the Charlotte convention of that year was very 
ably handled and proved one of the most enjoy- 
able conventions the Association has ever had. 

he found a finer kind of helpfulness than 
Mr. Blair gave. We had one conference, 
and after that it was a matter of keeping 
abreast of him and never a question of 
urging him. If he needed more money than 
was in sight he would always find some 
quick way of securing it from his colleagues. 
He never seemed to offend anybody and yet 
he never took "No" for an answer. It is 
only natural that thoughts turn again to Mr. 
Blair as the Association goes back to Char- 
lotte and this is why we take this oppor- 
tunity to pay tribute to the fine job he did 
for us when we enjoyed Charlotte's hospi- 
tality in 1921.

Well, fellows, ' ' It won 't be as long 
now as it has been." As you know', 
the North Carolina Pharmaceutical As- 
sociation meets in Charlotte, June 20, 
21, 22. It is expected that the largest 
crowd ever to attend the convention 
will be on hand. Now, as never before, 
the retail druggists are looking for 
ideas which will enable them to con- 
duct their business in a more profit- 
able way. They are coming to Char- 
lotte! Are you doing your part in 
trying to get a crowd there? Are 
you going to be there and help enter- 
tain them? Every traveling man who 
calls on the drug trade in North Caro- 
lina should be there and show his ap- 
preciation for the business the drug- 
gists have given this year. 

M. J. Leimkuhler is Chairman of 
the T.M.A. Entertainment Committee 
and is being ably assisted by W. Mc- 
Elveen, Walter R. Dixon and Paul 
Zemmer. The entertainment prepared 
by this committee surpasses by far 
any program ever attempted by the 
T.M.A. before. You'll feel honored 
after witnessing the T.M.A. entertain- 


Mr. Leimkuhler advises that the 
Charlotte druggists have also arranged 
a wonderful entertainment program 
for the visiting druggists, their wives 
and friends. 


"Spec" Dailey is expected to at- 
tend the meeting of the T.M.A. Tues- 
day morning, June 20, at noon. We 
are always glad to have "Spec" with 


The officers and members of the 
T.M.A. are grateful to Dean J. G. 
Beard, Miss Alice Noble, and other 
members of the staff of the Carolina 
Journal of Pharmacy, for the co- 
operation given the T.M.A. during 
the past year. 



Every man who calls on the drug 
irade in North Carolina should join the 
T.M.A. and attend the Convention. 
Are you doing your bit towards get- 
ting new members? 


Say! You fellows who have not paid 
your dues, come across with your 
checks. If you want to co-operate, 
mail your check for dues today.

Hectic 1933 Legislature Ends on 
132nd Day 

The General Assembly adjourned sine die 
on May 15, just two weeks ago, after 132 
days of a history making session. The 1933 
Legislature broke all past records both in 
volume and in variety of legislation enacted, 
a total of 1,408 new statutes having been 
placed upon the statute books dealing with 
practically every subject conceivable. More- 
over, it lacked but nine days of being as 
long as the record breaking session of 1931 
that lasted for 141 days. 

Chief among the accomplishments of the 
1933 Legislature, as summarized in the Ra- 
leigh Times on the afternoon it adjourned, 
are the following : 

1. Enactment of a three per cent general 
sales tax on all commodities save meat, meal, 
flour, lard, milk, salt, molasses, sugar and 

2. Providing every school child in the 
State with the opportunity of attending an 
eight months State-supported school. 

3. Legalization of the sale of beer with 
an alcoholic content of 3.2 by weight. 

4. Lifting of an ad valorem tax on real 
property for schools, but allowing school 
units having registration of more than 1,000 
pupils to vote an extra month. 

5. Enactment of legislation designed to 
strengthen the State's banking laws and to 
provide for speedier liquidation of closed 

6. Enactment of legislation aimed at en- 
abling people to reclaim land and homes 
sold for taxes. 

7. Reduction in salaries of State em- 
ployes so that after July 1, they will receive 
38 per cent less than what they got in 1930. 

8. Combining of the activities of State de- 
partments, including the abolition of the 
State Corporation Commission and the set- 
ting up of a State Utilities Commission. The 
State highway commission and the State 's 
prison were merged under one board. 

9. Last, but not least, what Governor 

Ehringhaus termed "a manifestly balanced 
budget. ' ' 

In addition to the above, it lopped off 
$24,000,000 in appropriations for the next 
biennium, provided for submitting a new 
Constitution to vote of people next year, and 
for referendum on repeal of 18th Amend- 
ment this fall, legalized race track gam- 
bling under pari mutuel system for six coun- 
ties, and shortened the divorce period from 
five to two years. 

General Sales Tax 

The imposition of the general sales tax 
brings into the State 's system of taxation a 
complete innovation. Its enactment was ac- 
complished only after a bitter struggle by] 
almost one-half of the membership of each 
body — the House and Senate. A majority of 
the members of each legislative body came 
to E-aleigh pledged against any form of sales' 
tax legislation. It was not long, however, 
until it became apparent then either a gen- 
eral sales tax or a selected commodity tax, 
was absolutely necessary to enable the State: 
to function on a sound basis and with a 
balanced budget. Each form had staunch 
supporters and more than once the selected 1 
commodity tax group was the strongest. Fi- 
nally, however, the general sales tax propo- 
nents prevailed, primarily for two reasons, 
first, because it was felt that the selected 
commodity tax would not yield sufficient rev- 
enue, and, second, because it was felt that a; 
general sales tax carrying a smaller rate! 
of tax applicable to all was more equitable 
and just than the other which taxed only 
certain classes of merchandise at a rate of 
from 5 to 30 per cent. 

Mandatory Collection of Sales Tax 

Not until the day before the Legislature 
adjourned did we succeed in obtaining th€ 
passage of a Bill, S. B. 733, providing for 
mandatory collection of the sales tax. Two 
months prior to the Sub-finance Committee 
had worked out a mandatory collection pro- 
vision. This was turned down by the Joint Fi- 

The Carolina Journal op Pharmacy 


nance Committee. An attempt was made 
when the Eevenue bill reached the House to 
get the provision incorporated therein but 
without success. Finally, the Senate did adopt 
the compulsory feature as a part of the reve- 
nue bill, but this was stricken out by the 
Conference Committee. The separate bill was 
then prepared and caused to be passed dur- 
ing the closing hours of the session. 

The bill is carried in full below for the 
information of Journal Eeaders. In the 
opinion of the writer, this measure is the 
salvation of the retail merchant. Without it, 
the tax would be impossible of collection and 
retail merchants certainly could not absorb 
the tax. With it, a plan may be worked out 
between representatives of the retail drug 
business and the Commissioner of Revenue 
that will insure the collection of the tax and 
that will entail the minimum trouble to our 

Whereas, the enactment of House Bill 120 
of the General Assembly of Nineteen Hun- 
dred Thirty-three embraces the levying of a 
General Retail Sales Tax in North Carolina, 
imposed as a license tax on retail merchants 
for the privilege of doing business in the 
State; and 

Whereas, the need exists for the promul- 
gation of uniform rules and regulations 
whereby the merchants may conduct suc- 
cessfully their business in the State while 
operating under this emergency levy: There- 

The General Assembly of North Carolina 
do enact: 

Section 1. That in order that fair trade 
practices may be encouraged and any dele- 
terious effect of the retail sales tax levy 
may be minimized, the Commissioner of 
Revenue is empowered and directed to de- 
vise, promulgate and enforce regulations 
under which retail merchants shall collect 
from the consumers, by rule uniform as to 
classes of business, the sales tax levied upon 
their business by the retail sales tax article; 
Provided, that the Commissioner of Revenue 

shall have the power to change the regula- 
tions and methods under which the mer- 
chants shall collect the tax from the con- 
sumers, from time to time, as experience may 
prove expedient and advisable. Methods for 
the passing on by merchants to their custo- 
mers the retail sales tax on sales to said cus- 
tomers may include plans which require both 
more and less than three (3%) per cent of 
the sale price, the purpose being to enable 
the merchants to collect approximately the 
amount of three (3%) per cent on their total 
sales volume. Such regulations as herein au- 
thorized shall be promulgated by the Com- 
missioner of Eevenue to become effective 
after reasonable notice to the retail mer- 
chants and when so promulgated they shall 
have the full force and effect of law. Any 
merchant who violates such rules and regu- 
lations shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and 
upon conviction shall be fined not less than 
five ($5.00) dollars or more than five hun- 
dred ($500.00) dollars or be imprisoned for 
not more than six months, or be both fined 
and imprisoned in the discretion of the 
court; provided, however, that every suet 
violation shall be a separate offense here- 
under. It shall be the duty of the solicitors 
of the several judicial districts of the State 
to prosecute violations of this act. 

Sec. 2. That the provisions of this Act 
shall not affect in any manner the character 
or validity of the sales tax levy as a mer- 
chants license tax, and they may not be 
pleaded or considered in the event any pro- 
vision of the general revenue act is attacked 
as unconstitutional. 

See. 3. This Act shall be in full force and 
effect from and after its ratification. 

Ratified the 15th day of May, 1933. 

Professional Tax Removed 

It took hard work for twelve weeks to get 
the Legislature to take pharmacists out of 
the section imposing a professional tax upon 
physicians, lawyers, dentists, etc. Finally, 
after four unsuccessful attempts, on the fifth 
go round the Senate adopted an amendment 
striking the provision from the Revenue bill. 
In Conference Committee, certain conferees 
of the House at first refused to recede in this 
particular, but eventually the position of the 
Senate prevailed and the amendment stuck

The program generally listed as coming 
from the Papers and Queries Committee will 
this year be turned into a sort of commer- 
cial clinic. Various druggists will be desig- 
nated to lead off in discussions of live drug 
store topics and it is hoped that the other 
members present will "chime in and sound 
off their views." A lively discussion of such 
subjects will prove of general interest and 
mutual help to our membership. Won't you 
do your part in making this feature a suc-

Old Drug Firms Merge 

When R. Blacknall and Son Co. and the 
Five Points Drug Co., of Durham, united 
to form the Durham Drug Co., early in May, 
two of the city's oldest and best known 
business names faded into the past. R. 
Blacknall and Son Co. was founded some 
sixty-eight years ago by Dr. R. Blacknall, 
one of the city's first practicing physicians 
in the days when Durham was just a little 
cross-roads village. The store was managed 
by his son, Mr. R. D. Blacknall. The busi- 
ness rapidly increased after the Civil War 
and in 1888 Mr. Germain Bernard was em- 
ployed as an assistant. Upon the death of 
Mr. Blacknall a few years later Mr. Ber- 
nard acquired the ownership of the store 
which has continued uninterruptedly its ser- 
vice to the people of Durham. 

The Five Points Drug Co. was established 
some twenty-five years ago at exactly the 
same location it occupied at "Five Points" 
until a few weeks ago, by Mr. Bernard and 
Mr. C. T. Council. It was here that "BC", 
the famous headache remedy, was first con- 
ceived, and it was here that it was made 
until increased business made necessary the 
present "BC" plant on Morris St. Both 
R. Blacknall and Son Co., and the Five 
Points Drug Co. have specialized in the 
family prescription business and we under- 
stand the new store will employ four regis- 
tered pharmacists. The date for the formal 
opening of the new Durham Drug Co. has 
aot been announced as yet. 

Chairman McDuffie Enthusiastic 
Over Meeting 

Mr. and Mrs. R. A. McDuffie, of Greens- 
boro, paid the Journal offices a visit a 
few days ago. The former is Chairman of the 
Papers and Queries Committee of the Asso- 
ciation and came to Chapel Hill to confer 
with Secretary-Treasurer Beard about the 
program of the forthcoming convention. He 
is enthusiastic about the meeting and is 
hard at work perfecting plans for his sec- 
tion. He feels that the convention should 
be an open forum for the discussion of all 
topics of vital concern to present-day phar- 
macy, and he is seeking the co-operation of 
his fellow-pharmacists in developing such 
a plan. Won't you, therefore, help him by 
writing him today suggesting pertinent and 
timely topics for discussion? At this con- 
vention — more than at any former one — 
there should be a frank discussion of all 
topics of vital concern to present-day phar- 
macy. To have such a well-rounded and

Of particular interest is the announcement 
of the marriage of Miss Mattie E. Smith, 
formerly of Marshville, but for the past 
several years of Charlotte, and Mr. Kirksy 
Gardner, which took place in May. Miss 
Smith graduated from the State University 
School of Pharmacy in 1924 and was licensed 
as a pharmacist in 1925. Since her gradu- 
ation she has been connected with the drug 
stores of Mr. J. P. Stowe in Charlotte. 


Mr. Charles Newton Gunter died at his 
home in Washington, Ga., on April 7 fol- 
lowing a long period of declining health. 
Mr. Gunter was licensed in this State in 
1926 by reciprocity with Georgia and for 
over five years was associated with Mack 's 
Drug Store in Durham. Immediately after 
coming to this State he affiliated with the 
N.C.P.A. He returned to his old home in 
Washington, Ga., several months ago on ac- 
count of ill health. 

Dr. L. L. Sapp, aged 65, prominent Badin 
druggist, died on the morning of April 5 
at the home of his daughter in Portsmouth, 
Va., where he had been undergoing treat- 
ment for several weeks.

The Charlotte Convention 

Seven hundred and seven persons attended 
the June meeting of the Association in 
Charlotte. This is an all-time record for 

In spite of a heat wave every delegate 
seemed to enjoy the elaborate program offer- 
ed by the local druggists and the Traveling 
Men's Auxiliary. 

Every speaker was a North Carolinian and 
each address measured up to high expecta- 

The Commercial Clinic, conducted by Vice- 
President Roger A. McDuffie, of Greensboro, 
met with enthusiastic approval. 

While great tension and a little bitter- 
ness developed during some of the debates 
and actions on resolutions, the convention 
nevertheless finally brought the delegates 
into a greater spirit of unity than has ever 
been shown for some time and the members 
left for home feeling that the meeting had 
been of real value to them. 

The Drug Institute was carefully ex- 
plained and expressions were general that 
it held fine promise for the pharmacists of 
the country through price protection and 
general stabilization. 

The officers were instructed to wire Com- 
missioner Maxwell requesting that he set 
up a bracket plan of collecting the sales 
tax from customers and that the tax be 
fixed at one cent on items from ten to 
thirty-four cents; two cents on items up to 
sixty-seven, and three cents up to one dol- 
lar. A resolution offering co-operation to 
the Commissioner was ordered. Beer sales 
in drug stores and drug sales in grocery 
stores were discussed at length. (Full de- 
tails will appear in the Proceedings.) The 
new Bankruptcy Law was explained. Other 
pertinent questions were debated. 

Dues for proprietors were reduced from 
twelve to ten dollars and for non-proprietors 
were' lowered from five to four dollars. It 

was also decided to cancel the unpaid bal- 
ances of delinquent members provided that 
such members pay dues for the current year 
with reasonable promptness. 

The Woman 's Auxiliary was re-established 
with Mrs. L. M. Jarrett as President, Mts. 
E. M. Hannon and Mrs. Sterling Hubbard as 
Vice-Presidents, and Mrs. J. B. Hunter as 

Wrightsville Beach was selected as the 
next place of meeting. Mr. J. M. Hall, Sr., 
was elected Local Secretary. 

Attorney F. 0. Bowman was re-employed. 

The following were selected to appear on 
the mail ballot for officers for 1934-35: 

For President: 

E. F. Rimmer, Charlotte 
P. J. Suttlemyre, Hickory 

For First Vice-President :

Drug Institute of America, Inc. 

Full facts concerning this new, widely ad- 
vertised organization were not available when 
we went to press with the June number, and 
these facts will have been given so much 
publicity by the time this issue appears as 
to make a list of them here unnecessary. 

The Drug Institute is supposed to be an 
organization designed to bring all drug 
groups together into a body that can frame 
a code of ethics that will meet the approval 
of President Roosevelt and which can then 
"become the working formula for trade agree- 
ments, price regulations and a stabilized in- 
dustry. (The National Industrial Recovery 
Bill recently passed by Congress, provided 
that "upon the application to the President 
by one or more trade or industrial associa- 
tions or groups, the President may approve 
a code or codes of fair competition for the 
trade or industry or subdivisions thereof.'') 

The membership will be composed of man- 
ufacturers (of drugs, chemicals, pharma- 
ceuticals, toilet articles, cosmetics, etc.) ; 
wholesalers (service and mutual) ; chain 
drug stores ; independent drug stores ; any 
retail outlet for drugs, toilet or cosmetic 
products : officers and employees of drug 
trade organizations ; faculties ; and members 
of scientific organizations. 

The Institute will function, so it is 
claimed, through ten standing committees. 
The activities of these committees will be 
designed to remedy practices regarded as 
detrimental to the industry as a whole. 

Writing two months ago in the Los 
Angeles Daily News, Mr. Manchester 
Boddy, a "Colymist, " made some signifi- 
cant statements that have caused us a great 
deal of thinking. You may not agree with 
Mr. Boddy 's figures or his conclusions, but 
he is striking at a change in retail condi- 

tions that many impartial students of eco- 
nomic affairs say is inevitable. What do 
you think? 

' ' About ten days ago, in this column, the 
statement was made that government direc- 
tion of banking, put into effect by the new 
administration, must inevitably be followed 
by government supervision of industry. In- 
deed, the statement went so far as to soy 
that the industrialists themselves would ap- 
pear in Washington pleading for Uncle Sam 
to become their guardian. 

You will notice that the great oil indus- 
try has already taken this step. Next will 
be the transportation industry. This will 
lead to a real national transportation system. 
In place of scores of unrelated, wasteful 
units, the new system will operate railroads, 
waterways, coastwise shipping, motor trucks 
and airplanes as one comprehensive unit. 

"Other industries will follow suit. It 
cannot be otherwise in our complicated eco- 
nomic system. Once Uncle Sam becomes the 
guardian and virtual director of banking 
and basic industry, he cannot escape respon- 
sibility for the business of distribution. 

Up to the present time, merchants have 
had things pretty much their own way. They 
have been utterly free to compete with each 
other. The exercise of this freedom has 
brought them to the brink of ruin. 

"For instance: Your corner druggist must 
pay the local wholesaler 35 cents per tube 
for a popular tooth paste that retails for 50 
cents. A cut-rate firm, operating many 
stores, advertises this identical tube for 19 
cents. Here are a few other items :

' ' I am not arguing for high prices, for 
subsidy, for cut-rate prices or for anything 
else. I am simply presenting a picture of 
chaos in retail business. This chaos has 
reached such alarming proportions that some- 
thing must be done. 

' ' That ' something ' will be licensing and 
control by Uncle Sam. If I had written 
this identical column three years ago, the 
heads of transportation, industry, wholesale 
and retail establishments would have de- 
scended en masse upon my head. They would 
have fought government control to the limit. 
Instead of following this course today, they 
are descending en masse upon Washington 
asking Uncle Sam to take charge! 

"Whether it is a good thing or a bad 
thing is beside the point. It is happening. ' ' 

Toilet Article Tax Ruling 

Eecently the Federal Bureau of Internal 
Revenue held that medicinal preparations 
when held out and used, or intended to be 
used, for toilet purposes, even in a minor 
degree, are subject to the 10 per cent toilet 
article tax. Respecting the rate to apply to 
such products as mouthwashes, also used for 
toilet purposes, the Bureau said: "A product 
must be classified according to its chief use 
in order to determine the rate of tax ap- 
plicable. If its chief use is as a mouthwash, 
the product will be subject to the 5 per cent 
rate, but if its chief use is for other toilet 
purposes, tax at the 10 per cent rate is ap- 
plicable. The burden of establishing the chief 
use of an article, preparation, or substance, 
falls upon the manufacturer, producer, or 
importer, where it may be taxable under 
one or two or more provisions in the law." 

Beer vs. Chocolate and Fruit 

Somewhat imitating Standard Oil Com- 
pany 's Esso advertisements, the H. B. Hun- 
ter Co., of Norfolk, has issued a pamphlet 
to the trade headed "Don't Let the Beer-O- 
Bunkus Frighten You. ' ' 

Among other things the Hunter Company 
claims that chocolate and fruit drinks have 
double the food value of beer, and that their 
sale in the South before. Prohibition was 
twice as great as the amount of beer sold 
then. By assumption the point is made that 

the nation is temporarily "beer conscious," 
but that when this thirst is thoroughly satis- 
fied, the country will turn again to the choc- 
olate and food beverages with their variety 
of flavors and proved popularity and while 
not ignoring beer will again put it in sec- 
ond place. 

Voting for Officers 

Before this Journal appears every member 
of the Association will have received a ballot 
by mail to lie checked and returned to Presi- 
dent John C. Hood, of Kinston. This ballot 
gives equal suffrage rights to every member 
of the organization whether or not he or she 
attended the Charlotte convention. It seems 
clear to us that this privilege should be 
exercised. The Association is largely the 
product of its officers. It is, therefore, the 
duty as well as the privilege of every mem- 
ber to indicate on the ballot the persons pre- 
ferred for the responsibilities of running the 
organization. Send in your vote before the 
thirty-day limit expires. 

Dues Are Due Now 

Annual dues for everyone have been 
lowered. Delinquent members paying cur- 
rent dues promptly will be excused from all 
unpaid balances and will be considered in 
good standing as soon as check is received. 
By paying promptly and by mail, the mem- 
bers will relieve the Association of the siz- 
able cost of sending out a canvasser. This 
money so saved can be used for other and 
more pressing purposes. If you, or any 
reader, expect to pay dues anyway, why put 
the organization to a 16% expense by wait- 
ing until some one makes a personal canvass 
for it ? You have now received a bill. Uncle 
Sam will bring us the payment for three 

New Bankruptcy Law 

At the Charlotte convention, Mr. C. N. 
Herndon, of Greensboro, presented a brief 
talk on the Bankruptcy Law, recently 
enacted by Congress. If any Association 
members are interested in this subject we

for our source material several enlightening 
explanations of the act that have been pub- 
lished by the American Bankruptcy Review, |

What is this ' 'Racket' ' Called Drug Business? 

R. C. Sisk, of Bryson City 

(The Journal welcomes articles of every 
sort from its readers. Their publication 
does not carry our opinions necessarily, but 
there are often many sides to certain ques- 
tions and our pages are open to varying 
opinions. — Ed.) 

If it was possible for a person to visit 
an apothecary shop of the eighteenth cen- 
tury and a drug store of today would there 
be any difference in the way business was 
carried on at that time and now? This is a 
question that every pharmacist should think 
about. Hasn't the druggist of today de- 
parted from the real aim and motive of 
pharmacy? No longer do pharmacists sug- 
gest to a customer some type of mixture that 
can be compounded in the prescription de- 
partment but they point proudly to some 
patented medicine that has a ' ' showy ' ' label 
and used to cure all ills. If this be the case 
he is proving to himself two things: that he 
had rather sell a bottle of medicine that 
can be procured some other place, probably 
at a cut rate store, or that he does not have 
confidence in his own ability to compound 
medicines under his own label. When he 
does sell his own label he is insuring him- 
self that if the patient ever wants a refill 
he will come back to him and he will 'be 
the one to refill it. 

Personally I am a firm believer in having 
specified remedies for certain diseases or 
ailments that have individual drug store 
labels on them. The druggist has an oppor- 
tunity of doing this better than anyone. He 
can inquire of people who have prescriptions 
filled as to just how the prescription acted. 
If it meets Avith the patient's approval and 
the druggist's approval, the druggist can 
then transfer this prescription to his per- 
sonal file and when some customer is suffer- 
ing from some type of disease that corre- 
sponds to the disease that this specific pre- 
scription calls for he can then suggest it to 
the customer. This may sound unscrupulous 
to the doctor but one must remember that 

there are a vast number of people that do 
not have the necessary funds to consult 
doctors especially during these depressing 

These various remedies can easily be 
bottled and labels printed at a very little 
expense. A good profit may be realized by 
those who do this. In doing this the drug- 
gist has the exclusive rights on this particu- 
lar bottle of medicine. 

Since I have been in the drug business 
I have accumulated several different reme- 
dies. I have always been careful to get 
only those that have proved useful and bene- 
ficial. I have calls for extra bottles every 

E, C. Sisk 

day. A druggist should always use the very 
best of drugs. 

So try this ' ' racket ' ' and watch your 
profits climb. Make j'our store the head- 
quarters for information to those people who 
cannot afford a doctor and remember 
"patented'' medicines can be bought any- 
where and the appreciation of your knowl- 
edge is soon forgotten when the patient buys 
the same bottle of patented medicine at a 
' ' hole-in-the-wall " or a " cut-rate store. ' '

Maxwell Explains General Sales 
Tax Law 

"The tax of three per cent imposed upon 
the retail sales of merchants in Article 5, 
Schedule E, of the 1933 Revenue Act is 
levied as a license or privilege tax for en- 
gaging or continuing in the business or 
merchandising, and becomes effective at 
12:01 A.M., Saturday, July 1st. It is the 
purpose and intent, that such tax shall be 
added to the sale price of merchandise and 
thereby be passed on to the consumer in- 
stead of being absorbed by the merchant. 

"Any retail merchant who shall by any 
character of public advertisement offer to 
absorb the tax levied on the retail sale of 
merchandise or in any manner directly or 
indirectly advertise that the tax imposed is 
not considered as an element in the price 
to the consumer shall be guilty of a mis- 
demeanor. To accomplish the purpose of 
passing on the tax, agreements among com- 
peting merchants or adoption of appropriate 
rules and regulations by associations or mer- 
chants, in order to provide uniform methods 
of adding the average equivalent of the tax 
to the sales price of merchandise, which does 
not involve price fixing agreements other- 
wise unlawful, are expressly authorized and 
permitted under the statute. To further ac- 
complish this purpose, the Commissioner of 
Revenue is empowered and directed to de- 
vise, promulgate and enforce regulations 
under which retail merchants shall collect 
from the consumer by uniform rule as to 
classes of business the tax levied upon the 
retail sale of merchandise. He may include 
in such rules and regulations plans which 
require more or less than three per cent of 
the sale price, the purpose being to enable 
the merchants to collect approximately the 
amount of three per cent on their total sales 
volume. Such regulations when adopted 
shall have the full force and effect of law 

and any merchant who violates such rules 
and regulations shall be guilty of a mis- 
demeanor. Conferences are in progress with 
merchant groups, and these regulations will 
be promulgated before July 1st. 

' ' The tax imposed in Article 5, Schedule 
E, of the 1933 Revenue Act is imposed upon 
the sale at retail of merchandise by a retail 
merchant, being defined as one who sells any 
article of commerce in any quantity or quan- 
tities for any use or purpose on the part of 
the purchaser other than for resale. The 
word "sale'' is defined as any transfer of 
the ownership or title of tangible personal 
property to the consumer for use, and not 
for the purpose of resale, for a monetary 
consideration. The question of whether a 
sale is made before or after the effective 
date of the act is determined by the time 
of delivery. If delivery is made after the 
effective date of the act, it is a taxable sale. 

' ' The tax is not imposed upon the busi- 
ness of producing, manufacturing, mixing, 
blending or processing any articles of com- 
merce or upon the sale of such aidicles of 
commerce by anyone who engages in the 
business of producing, manufacturing, mix- 
ing, blending or processing. These exemp- 
tions do not apply if the producer becomes 
a merchant in the ordinary meaning of that 
term and maintains, separate from the 
place of production, stores for the retail sale 
of merchandise. But it shall apply to those 
businesses if and to the extent that such 
articles of commerce are bought and sold 
in substantially the same form in which 
they were bought. 

' ' Gross sales shall mean and include the 
sum total of all sales for a given month, 
quarter, or tax year reckoned at the price 
at which such sales were made, whether for 
cash or on time. If on time, the price 
charged on the books for such sale without 
allowance for cash discounts shall be re- 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

ported as sales. However, when in the sale 
of a new article a second hand or used 
article is taken in part payment, the sale 
of the new article shall be reported at the 
full gross sale price, and the resale of such 
second hand or used article taken in part 
payment of the sale of new articles, may be 
excluded from gross sales upon which the 
tax is imposed if separate record is kept of 
all such transactions in such manner as may 
be prescribed by the Commissioner of Reve- 
nue. The exemption of resale of second 
hand articles will not apply to second hand 
articles on hand July 1st. 

"In addition to the above exemption, 
the tax imposed in Article 5, Schedule E, of 
the 1933 Revenue Act shall not apply to the 
sale of gasoline on which a sales tax is col- 
lected, or to the sale of commercial fertilizer 
on which an inspection tax is paid. There 
is also provision for exemption of sales by 
retail merchants upon condition hereinafter 
set out of the following articles: 

"Public school books on the adopted list, 
and the selling price of which is fixed by 
law j sales of merchandise made to the Fed- 
eral government or any of its agencies or to 
the State of North Carolina or any of its 
subdivisions, including sales of merchandise 
to agencies of Federal, state, or local govern- 
ments for distribution to public welfare and 
relief work ; flour, meaning wheat flour and 
not including cereal products other than 
flour ; meal, meaning corn meal and not 
grits, flakes, or other cereal products ; meat, 
including fresh or cured meats of animals or 
fish other than shell fish, but not including 
any specialized products in cans, jars, boxes, 
or cartons for retail trade; lard, as this term 
is commonly understood, including lard 
made both from animal fat and vegetable 
substitutes but not including oleo-margarine, 
butter, oils, or other like products; molasses, 
as this product is commonly understood, but 
not including cane, sugar, maple, or other 
syrups ; milk, including sweet and butter 
milk, but not including canned milk, evap- 
orated milk or other milk products ; salt, as 
this product is commonly known ; sugar, 
which includes plain and granulated sugar 
as commonly understood, but no other sugar 
products; coffee, meaning plain, roasted or 

ground coffee as commonly understood, but 
not coffee substitutes. 

' ' The exemption of the articles enumer- 
ated above is upon condition that the retail 
merchant shall keep accurate and separate 
records of invoices and sales of the exempted 
articles in such form and detail as may be 
prescribed by the Department of Revenue, 
in any event in such manner that accurate 
reports may be made covering the sale of 
such conditionally exempted articles and 
in such form as may be accurately and con- 
veniently checked by the representative of 
the Department of Revenue. 

"Any person who after the 30th day of 
June, 1933, shall engage or continue in the 
business of retail merchandising shall apply 
for and obtain from the Commissioner of 
Revenue, upon the payment of the sum of 
$1.00, a license to engage in and to continue 
such business upon the condition that such 
person shall pay the tax accruing to the 
State of North Carolina under the provisions 
of Article 5, Schedule E, of the 1933 Reve- 
nue Act. Said license shall be renewed an-

Here Lies the Inventory 5 

By E. F. Rimmer, of Charlotte 

There could be no more apt epitaph for 
the average drug store failure than the fol- 
lowing : ' ' Here lies the inventory, for many 
years regarded as the promising offspring 
of Expected Profits and Annual Dividend." 
The only correction necessary would be that 
the present of the verb signifying repose 
might well be changed to the past of the 
verb signifying departure from the truth. 
This statement makes the wayward com- 
panion not a deceased thing quietly taking 
its place in the past, but rather makes a very 
much alive thing blatantly taking its place 
as a criminal, for the epitaph now reads, 
' ' Here lied the inventory ' '. By this seem- 
ing magic of the substitution of one letter 
of the alphabet for another, inventory has 
become alive, but its parents named above 
are certainly buried both well and deep. 

This question of inventory with its atten- 
dant problem of unsalable merchandise is 
certainly one of the most important ques- 
tions that affect the druggists here today. 
Any unsalable merchandise that today con- 
fronts the druggists from his shelves, attired 
in its worn, dirty, decrepit wrappers, car- 
ries a hang-dog attitude ; it shows nothing 
of the fresh, roseate, aggressive appeal that 
it had when first placed there in the by- 
gone years while friend druggists was still 
under the mesmeric remembrance of the 
super salesman. 

In my estimation, inactive merchandise 
has been the greatest trouble in my entire 
business experience. With the admission 
that I know very little about how to control 
the hard stock problem, I will venture the 
guess that we all know we have had hard 
stock all the time; still the time we realize 
it most forcibly is during the inventory 
period. After three or four annual inven- 
tories I thought of a simple scheme that has 
helped our store greatly, although I must 
confess it has been something on the idea 
of the locking of the stables after the dis- 
appearance of our oft quoted friend 
"Equus eaballus". 

The idea came through the purchase of a 
department type cash register. However, it 

is not at all necessary to have such a cash 
register to obtain the information. The 
procedure is very simple. All that we do 
is use a columnar ruled book to take inven- 
tory in, with the amounts extended into the 
proper columns, these bearing the following 
headings : soda, tobacco, sundries, drugs,, 
patent medicines, toilet articles, candy and 
controlled merchandise. Totaling these ex- 
tensions gives the amount of the stock in 
each department, and the addition of these 
eight columns gives the inventory in en- 

It may not be possible to keep sales de- 
partments without special equipment, but it 
certainly takes no more time to take an in- 
ventory by the manner described, and I have 
an idea that the result would be startling 
to many of the takers. From my own ex- 
perience I have found that some of the de- 
partments turn as many as twenty times a 
year while one of them turned only one and 
one-half times during the first year I kept 
these records. I will state that my pur- 
chases for that department became scarcer, 
and more centralized until now the inventory 
in that department has been cut about fifty 
per cent. However today it carries a large 
portion of my hard stock. 

The keeping of purchases with the aid of 
a similarly ruled book takes slightly more 
time than just entering the amount of the 
invoice, but it gives information to any 
store, more especially a store that is losing 
money. If any store does not need this 
information it would be one that was making 
money, and the opposite is equally as logical. 
The fact that it takes time to keep these 
records is admitted, still in many stores 
there has been abundant leisure during the 
past several years to conduct a research for 
a vanished profit. 

Analysis is defined as separation int 
component parts. In schools we are taught 
its value. It is a pity that out in the 
business world the value of analysis should

Commencement at the University 

The one hundred and thirty-eighth annual 
commencement of the University of North 
Carolina was held June 4-6. The graduating 
exercises took place in the Kenan Memorial 
Stadium with Governor J. C. B. Ehringhaus 
and President Frank P. Graham delivering 
addresses to the graduates. Eighteen phar- 
macy students received degrees as f ollows : 
B.S. in Pharmacy: Simon Weil Arenson, 
Baltimore, Md., and Tad Lincoln Mc- 
Laughlin, Mercersburg, Pa. ; Graduate in 
Pharmacy: Maurice Milam Brame, Jr., 
Winston-Salem ; Elmer William Buchanan, 
Greensboro; Luther Elmo Bunch, Edenton; 
Samuel Gordon Clark, Pittsboro; Martin 
Luther Cline, Granite Falls ; Clarence Harper 
Cobb, Fremont ; Leonard Ralph Creech, 
Smithfield ; Uba Frank Crissman, High 
Point ; Clayton Smith Curry, Lexington ; 
Aaron Thomas Griffin, Pinetops ; Frank 
Benton Ham, Greensboro ; Wilbur Leon 
Hickman, Fayetteville ; Fred Morris Moss, 
Lowell ; Jasper Edward Phillips, Maccles- 
field ; Louie Livingston Rouse, Holly Springs, 
and Malcolm Thurston Upchurch, Apex. 

The Lehn and Fink Gold Medal, given an- 
nually by Lehn and Fink, of New York, for 
excellence in research work, was awarded to 
Mr. Clarence Harper Cobb, of Fremont. It 
is interesting to note that Mr. Cobb made a 
grade of "A" (the highest grade possible) 
in every subject during his senior year. 

Board of Pharmacy Holds 

The North Carolina Board of Pharmacy 
held its summer examinations in the Howell 
Hall of Pharmacy at the State University 
on June 13-14 with every member of the 
Board present. Mr. Warren W. Home, of 
Fayetteville, presented his credentials as a 
member of the Board for a five year term 
from April 28, 1933. Mr. Home succeeds 

Mr. I. W. Rose, who is now a member of the 
Faculty of the University, and will give the 
examinations in chemistry. The following 
were successful in passing the examinations 
and were granted license: Pharmacists: W. 
R. Adams, Angier; B. D. Arnold, Fuquay 
Springs; M. M. Brame, Winston-Salem; E. 
W. Buchanan, Greensboro; L. E. Bunch, 
Edenton; M. L. Cline, Granite Falls; C. H. 
Cobb, Fremont; U. F. Crissman, High Point; 
C. S. Curry, Lexington ; B. B. Forrest, Hills- 
boro; W. L. Hickman, Fayetteville; and 
F. M. Moss, Lowell; Assistant Pharmacists: 
R. G. King, Greenville; H. C. McAllister, 
Mt. Pleasant; W. A. Parks, Hickory; and 
W. B. Tyson, Warrenton. Only the results 
for those taking both the theoretical and 
practical examinations were announced. Mr. 
C. H. Cobb made the highest average of any 
of the candidates. 

General News Items 

The Walker-Cherry Drug Co., with prin- 
cipal offices in Ahoskie, has been incorporat- 
ed to operate a general retail drug store with 
authorized capital stock of $4,000 with sub- 
scribed stock $4,000 by Dr. L. K. Walker, 
Grace B. Walker and J. H. Holloman, of 

Mr. D. W. Bell, of Washington, D. C, has 
been transferred to the Peoples Drug Store 
in Cumberland, Md., as assistant manager. 
He was formerly connected witli one of the 
Washington stores of this company. Mr. 
Bell is a graduate of the U. N. C. School of 
Pharmacy and received his license as a North 
Carolina, pharmacist in 1931. 

President J. A. Goode, of the N.A.R.D., 
delivered an address before the Georgia 
Pharmaceutical Association in late May. He 
will also address the Virginia, Connecticut, 
Delaware, and New York conventions. 

Miss Grace Crabtree, daughter of Mr. and 
Mrs. W. A. Crabtree, of Sanford, has arrived 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


home from Copenhagen, Denmark, where 
since last July she has been the guest of 
her uncle, Mr. B. W. Coleman, United States 
minister to Denmark. 

Not content with graduating from the 
U. N. C. School of Pharmacy and passing 
the N. C. Board of Pharmacy, Mr. W. L. 
Hickman, of Fayetteville, went to Richmond 
in early June and successfully stood the 
Virginia Board of Pharmacy examinations. 

President Goode Speaks at 
President and Mrs. J. A. Goode, of Ashe- 
ville, were guests of the School of Pharmacy 
of the University on May 30 when the 
former delivered an address to the pharmacy 
students. His remarks were directed es- 
pecially to the graduating class, but by 
reason of his experience and wide knowl- 
edge of the drug business his talk was of in- 
terest and value to the undergraduates and 
to pharmacists generally. The speaker chose 
as his subject: "What a Proprietor Expects 
of a Clerk, ' ' and dwelt particularly upon 
what the proprietor of today has a right to 
expect of a modern day pharmaceutical grad- 
uate. During the progress of his address 
President Goode took occasion to outline 
some of the more efficient methods that drug 
store proprietors are now employing in 
meeting keen competition in order that 
clerks might know the sort of assistance they 
would be expected to render in the further- 
ance of such policies. In addition to the 
students quite a large number of townspeople 
and members of the Faculty were present. 
Following the address President and Mrs. 
Goode were guests of honor at a luncheon 
at the Carolina Inn. In addition to the 
honorees the following were present: Dean 
and Mrs. T. G. Beard, Professor and Mrs. 
I. W. Rose, Mr. and Mrs. C. L. Eubanks, 
Professor and Mrs. M. L. Jacobs, Dr. H. 
M. Burlage and Miss Noble. 

School of Pharmacy Notes 

The Xi chapter of Rho Chi of the Univer- 
sity held its last initiation for the year 
shortly before Commencement. The cere- 

monies were followed by a banquet. Rho Chi 
is a national pharmaceutical society with 
nineteen chapters whose membership is made 
up of individuals who have obtained high 
scholarship in their pharmaceutical studies 
for a period of at least three years. The new 
members are Messrs. M. L. Cline, of Granite 
Falls; S. G, Clark, of Pittsboro; Frank B. 
Ham, of Greensboro, W. L. Hickman, of 
Fayetteville, and U. S. Puckett, of Roxboro. 
The offices of president and vice-president 
are automatically filled on the basis of the 
highest scholastic averages. In line with 
this practice Messrs. C. S. Curry, of Lexing- 
ton, and C. H. Cobb, of Fremont, will serve 
as the officers for 1933-34. Dr. H. M. Bur- 
lage retains the office of secretary-treasurer. 

The rising second year class has chosen the 
following officers for the coming year: 
President, J. A. Mitchener, Jr., Edenton; 
Vice-President, A. E. Millis, Folkstone; 
Secretary, W. C. Lewis, West End; and 
Treasurer, G. W. McLean, Raeford. 

Dean J. G. Beard attended the recent meet- 
ing of the National Drug Trade Conference 
in Washington as a delegate from the Ameri- 
can Association of Colleges of Pharmacy. 

Mr. Miller Goes a' Fishing 

How is this for luck! Recently Mr. C. 
B. Miller, of Goldsboro, accompanied by 
three friends went down to Manteo to fish 
for channel bass, or drum as many call 
them. The party caught fifteen of these 
copper colored beauties, the smallest weigh- 
ing thirty-five pounds and the others from 
thirty-eight to forty pounds each. Six of 
the largest were brought home and placed 
on exhibition where they caused a tremen- 
dous amount of interest. The Goldsboro 
fishermen ran into a school of the fish and 
all four of the party had a strike at one 
time. Doesn 't it make you green with envy, 
fellow fishermen ? Mr. Miller stated there 
was great excitement and all landed their 
catch at this particular time. He says he 
would like to hear from some other readers 
of the Journal who claim to be fishermen. 
Now is your chance, gentle reader, let 's 
hear about vour luck! 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

Honor Student at University 

Mr. Clarence Harper Cobb, of Fremont 
"won three honors this year as a senior stu- 
dent in pharmacy at Chapel Hill. 

(1) He was elected to the honorary scho- 
lastic fraternity, Rho Chi; (2) he was given 
a gold medal for making the highest grades 
in his class; and (3) by leading the State 
Board with an average of 93% he won the 
Beal prize. He has been appointed pharma- 
cist in the hospital at Duke University. 

New Treatment for Strychnine 

Every pharmacist knows that death from 
strychnine poisoning is quite common. He 
may not have actually encountered a case 
of strychnine poisoning in the store but if 
he recalls his student days and the lectures 
on toxicology, he will remember that strych- 
nine poisoning is agonizing, commonly fatal, 
and rather frequent. 

The first procedure in treating poison 
cases, with few exceptions, is to empty the 
stomach. Strychnine is absorbed so quitkly, 
however, that treatment must be directed 
toward counteracting the effect of the poison 
rather than finding measures to eliminate it. 

Observations and experiments conducted 
by Drs. G. F. Kempf and L. G. Zerfas, 
members of the Lilly Research Staff, and 
Dr. J. T. C. McCallum, a former member, 

warrant the conclusion that Sodium Amytal, 
is an effective antidote against strychnine 
poisoning. The physicians found that Sodium 
Amytal could be given in large doses with- 
out bad effect. It stopped the convulsions 
promptly, put the patient to sleep without 
interfering with his breathing. For use as 
an antidote where prompt effect is highly 
desirable, Sodium Amytal should be given 
intravenously. Its effectiveness by mouth, 
however, has already been demonstrated. 

The accompanying information is not cal- 
culated to increase sales materially but it 
represents a type of knowledge that is in 
keeping with the pharmacist 's position in 
his community and his service to the medi- 
cal profession and the public. Facts are 
sometimes slow in being disseminated. A 
word about this new treatment for strych- 
nine poisoning to the physicians on your 
mailing list, in the form of a post card, 
places you in a favorable light with the doc- 
tor, lets him know that his pharmacist is 
progressive and abreast of the times. Be- 
sides, it is information that may be instru- 
mental in saving a life. 


News has just reached us of the marriage 
in the early summer of Miss Helen Hooks 
and Mr. William Russell Griffin, both of 
Fremont. The young couple are making 
their home in Fremont where Mr. Griffin is 
connected witli the Whitley Drug Co. He is 
originally from Pinetops and has been con- 
nected with eastern North Carolina drug 
stores since his graduation from the State 
University in 1926. 

Mr. Carl W. Hales, assistant pharmacist 
with the Rosemary Drug Co., of Rosemary, 
and Miss Kate Brison were married in Rich- 
mond, Va., on June 9. The groom is origi- 
nally from Kenly, Johnston County, but has 
been making his home in Rosemary for the 
past several years. 

Miss Sankay Ann Perry, of Maxton and 
Pittsboro, and Mr. Benjamin Franklin 
Stone, formerly of Orrum but now of Eliz- 
abethtown, were married in Fayetteville on 
the evening of June 4 at the Hay Street 
Methodist church. Mr. Stone is a graduate 
of the State University and for a number of 
years was located with Hedgepeth 's Phar- 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


macy in Lumberton, but recently accepted a 
position with the Hutchinson Drug Store in 

Miss Helen Catherine Snider and Mr. 
Archie Alva Koonts were married at the 
Wesley Memorial church in High Point on 
the morning of June 5. Mr. Koonts is orig- 
inally from Cooleemee but since his gradua- 
tion from the State University in 1929 has 
been connected with High Point drug stores, 
at present being located with the Cecil- 
Simpson Drug Co. 

A wedding of unusual interest was solem- 
nized at the home of the bride 's parents in 
Leaksville on June 7 when Miss Klyce Hamp- 
ton became the bride of Mr. Emmett 0. 
Chandler. The groom was licensed in this 
State in 1930 by reciprocity with Virginia 
and for the past three years has been a mem- 
ber of the firm of the Chandler Drug Co. He 
attended the University of Richmond and 
later received a degree in pharmacy at the 
Medical College of Virginia. He is a mem- 
ber of the Phi Delta Chi fraternity. 


Mr. Robert L. Justice, retired wholesale 
druggist of Greensboro, was found dead in 
the bath tub in his summer home at Mon- 
treat about noon on June 12 following a 
stroke of apoplexy. Mr. Justice was about 
68 years of age and had been in poor health 
for five years or more. He was a native of 
Wartrace, Tenn., ancestral home of his 
family. He moved to Greensboro in 19D6 
and purchased the controlling stock of the 
L. Richardson Drug Co., the name of which 
was changed to the Justice Drug Co. Prior 
to that time he had traveled a score of years 
for Parke-Davis and Co. and had been asso- 
ciated with the Greer Drug Co., of Charles- 
ton, S. C. He sold the Justice Drug Co. in 
1920 to Mr. P. A. Hayes and since that 
time had been retired. He formerly took an 
extremely active part in the social and fra- 
ternal life of Greensboro. The funeral ser- 
vices were held in Wartrace, Tenn.

The $10.00 tax on Carbonated Draft Arms

escape us. Xot thirty days ago, an hour or 
two spent with these records gave me more 
cheer, than did any ' ' pep ' ' speech I had 
heard through the medium of radio or other- 
wise. I knew that my volume of business 
was down for the year but I had not made 
comparisons of sales by departments as be- 
tween this year and last year. When I made 
this comparison I found that forty-five per 
cent of this year 's shortage was in tobacco, 
twenty-five per cent in soda, and ten per 
cent in toilet articles. The remaining short- 
age was in smaller percentages in the other 
departments, while drug sales were actually 
two per cent better this year than last year. 

The past four months has taught America 
much about frozen assets. Possibly some 
person here has cash tied up in closed or 
restricted banks. They have worried much 
about this subject, yet the probability is 
that there lies in their stock rooms merchan- 
dise totalling several times the amount of 
the hedged up cash. Familiarity with this 
condition has bred indifference, while year 
by year it has taken its toll from profits 
just as relentlessly as those two arch con- 
spirators, interest and taxes. 

Since choosing this subject I have talked 
with several druggists. Some have had other 
ideas on this subject; others here may have 
better ones. I am candid in saying that this 
type of inventory taking has not rid me of 
mistakes in buying, but I believe it has 
lessened them. Others may profit by my 
experience and it is for this reason I have 
related my experience. For aj.1 of these rea- 
sons and with the hope of earnest consider- 
ation, I offer for discussion this subject, 
' ' here lies the inventory ' '.

A Suggested Code of Ethics 

The letter and code that follow are self- 
explanatory. They are printed here because 
they involve every druggist in the State. We 
are anxious to get the opinion of Associa- 
tion members, believing that in this way the 
Executive Committee can learn what it 
should or should not do in an official way. 

Charlotte, N. C, 
July 10, 1933. 

Mr. J. G. Beard, Secretary, 

North Carolina Pharmaceutical Association, 

Chapel Hill, N. C. 

Dear Mr. Beard: 

I suppose you have noticed the June 26 copy 
of "Drug Trade News." It seems to be very 
much filled with the subject of Codes. Mr. Stowe 
and several other druggists here in Charlotte are 
of the opinion that as a matter of information it 
would be good policy on the part of the North 
Carolina Pharmaceutical Association to submit a 
code through the Drug Institute of America. 

At their suggestion and on examination of the 
code as submitted by St. Louis Drug Center, Inc., 
I have drawn up a code that suits the people 
here in Charlotte. As a member of the Executive 
Committee I present it and move its adoption. 

If you have a copy of "Drug Trade News" of 
the twenty-sixth, you will see that Rule 2 has been 
added since it has been laid down as a general 
rule that this right must be included in all codes. 
Rule 6 of the St. Louise Code was omitted here 
as w r ere some of the provisions of their Rule 5 
as we did not feel they were applicable in North 

The question of hours was the biggest bone of 

contention, but I have held out for 63 hours, 

that being about seven hours too long. 


(Signed) E. F. RIMMER. 


Rule 1. To Increase Employment Among 
Registered Pharmacists and Other Drug 
Store Personnel by Limiting Hours of 

No employee of any retail outlet selling 
drugs, drug sundries or kindred merchan- 
dise shall be compelled to work more than 63 
hours per week, no more than twelve of 
such hours to be on one day. It is neces- 
sary that drug stores remain open more 
hours than usual mercantile establishments 
in order to provide their clients ample pro- 
fessional service. 

Rule 2. To Grant the Right of Employees 
to Bargain Collectively for Mutual Aid and 

Any or all of the personnel engaged in 
labor in the retail drug stores have the right 
to organize and bargain collectively for 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


questions that bear on their mutual welfare, 
however no employee shall be required to 
join any organization as a condition of his 
receiving employment. 

Rule 3. To Establish a Fair Living Wage 
for Drug Store Employees. 

No retail outlet engaged in the selling of 
drugs, drug sundries and kindred merchan- 
dise shall require its employees to work for 
less than the scale of wages as enumerated 
herewith, which rate is hereby established 
as a minimum for a 63 hour week. 

Registered Pharmacist $30.00 

Registered Assistant $20.00 

Drug Clerk $15.00 

Cashier $15.00 

Fountain Manager $18.00 

Fountain Employees Other $12.00 

Porters, Delivery Men $10.00 

Part time to be pro-rated according to 
minimum schedule. 

Minimum wage scale proposed is consid- 
erably above present prices especially in the 
lower priced employees. 

Rule 4. To Make Possible Re-employmeut 
of Pharmacists and to Shorten Hours Mini- 
mum- Price Schedule Must Be Established. 

No retail outlet shall offer for sale, or 
sell, any drug, drug sundry or kindred mer- 
chandise at or below a price that shall be 
based upon the manufacturer's list price 
plus the cost of doing business (cost of 
doing business to be considered at 25 per 
cent of gross sales). This is necessary to 
guarantee the payment of the wages bar- 
gained for above as only cost of article plus 
cost of selling is included, profit being an 
individual matter with the employer who 
will care for himself. 

Rule 5. To Insure the Public that All 
Retail Sales of Medicinal Preparations for 
Either Internal or External Use Are to Be 
Made Through Legitimate Drug Outlets 

The provisions of the Pharmacy Act of 
the State of North Carolina as regards the 
filling of physician's prescriptions, the sale 
of poisons, the conducting of drug stores, 
pharmacies or apothecary shops by regis-

A Message to the Members of the 

N. A. R. D. and 

Every Pharmacist in America 

Asheville, N. C, 
July 18, 1933. 
Not since Mrs. Murphy's cow kicked 
over the lantern and started the great Chi- 
cago fire, has there been so much activity 
as there will be during the week of the 
N. A. R. D. Convention. 

Men learned in their profession and seri- 
ous in their purpose will assemble there, 
September 18th to 22nd, for the purpose of 
analyzing and perfecting ways and means 
for the material and professional better- 
ment of the independent retail druggists. 

Ages ago, Ricardo advanced the principle 
of his "Iron Law", which was, that as the 
world increased in population, it would de- 
crease in wealth. Malthus advanced the 
theory of controlled population on the basis 
that the world could not produce enough 
wealth or food to supply the demand of the 
normal increase. The inventive genius of 
man has upset these theories and doctrines 
of old and has produced a supply greater 
than the absorption or demands. Bentham

New Regulations Governing Collection of Sales Tax 

Effective August 1, every retail merchant in North Carolina will be required to employ 
a- uniform tax schedule in the collection of the sales tax. Regulations eliminating the 
bracket plan were promulgated by Commissioner Maxwell and Director of the Sales Tax 
Division on July 23. Likewise, the Department will furnish every retail merchant in 
the State a placard setting forth the schedule which must be conspicuously displayed by 
each retail merchant. 

The new regulations governing the manner of collecting the sales tax were submitted 
to three distinct groups, namely : general merchants group, retail druggists group, and 
chain store group, and had the endorsement of each, before being promulgated by Com- 
missioner Maxwell. In fact, the new regulations embody the identical provisions asked by 
the representatives of the retail druggists in the beginning. It is felt that under the new 
regulations every retail druggist, as well as all other retail dealers, will be enabled 
to collect a sufficient amount of tax to pay the 3 per cent levy to the State. The placard 
furnished retail dealers by the Revenue Department contains the following: 


Applies to Every Retail Merchant 

Less than 10 cents ---------- No Tax 

10 cents to 35 cents 1 cent 

36 cents to 70 cents ----------2 cents 

71 cents to $1.05 3 cents 

Above $1.05 straight 3 per cent, fractions governed by major fraction. 
This schedule to be applied to' cumulative sales at one trading period. Illustra- 
tion: The tax of one cent on a ten cents purchase entitles the customer to buy 
other merchandise up to 36 cents at the same trading period without additional 

NO TAX On Flour, Meal, Meat, Lard, Milk, Molasses, Salt, Sugar, Coffee, Gaso- 
line, Fertilizer, School Books. 
This schedule is promulgated under authority of law, effective from and after 
August 1, 1933, and it is mandatory upon every merchant to collect this tax, 
and no more, and add the same to the sales price of merchandise. This placard 
is furnished by the State Department of Revenue, to prevent unfair trade prac- 
tices. Regulations require that this placard shall be kept posted by every mer- 
chant where it may be conveniently seen by the customer, and is intended to pro- 
tect both merchant and customer. 


Director of Sales Tax Division. Commissioner of Revenue. 



The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

The experimental schedule promulgated 
for the month of July began with a higher 
breaking point for the beginning of the 
application of tax and at a lower top range 
in each bracket. This was intended to avoid 
the application of an excessive rate of tax 
on small sales. To compensate the merchant 
for tax free sales below the tax line it was 
provided that the tax on all taxable sales 
should be applied to each article sold, and 
not to the cumulative sum of two or more 
purchases. This gave the merchant an aver- 
age of more than 3 per cent on taxable sales 
to even up for sales that carried no tax. 
For this reason the July schedule permitted 
one price to be quoted on a single article of 
merchandise, covering both price and tax. 

The new single schedule, intended to apply 
to all merchants, is set up on the exact 
opposite of this theory. It begins with a 
lower taxable line for all merchants, with 
a higher top range in each bracket, and re- 
quires that the tax be computed on the cum- 
ulative purchase of two or more articles at 
one trading period. It gives the merchant 
a lower tax line, and gives the purchaser the 
right to apply the tax to his cumulative pur- 
chases instead of to each article. Under 
the rule now promulgated it will not be pos- 
sible for the merchant to include the tax in 
the price of his merchandise, because the 
amount of tax on a given article is not an 
exact sum, but will vary with reference to 
whether two or more purchases are made at 
the same time, and depends upon the total 
sum of such cumulative purchases. Under 
this rule of applying the tax to the total 
sum of cumulative purchases a compliance 
with the rule requires that the price be fixed 
on the merchandise, which is entirely within 
the discretion of the merchant, and that the 
tax be computed on the total sum of pur- 
chases at one trading period and added to 
the sales price of the merchandise. This 
rule gives the merchant the advantage of 
fair and uniform trade practice, and to the 
purchaser the advantage of a tax applied 
to his cumulative purchases as near to the 
3 t er cent tax paid by the merchant as can 
reasonably be applied. This is a rule that can 

be easily applied by every merchant, whether 
sales tickets are used or not. 

The single schedule for all merchants has 
not only the advantage of greater simplicity, 
but it corrects a serious inequality in that 
the use of more than one schedule, based on 
sales experience in low priced merchandise, 
resulted in the same article of merchandise 
being sold in one store with an added tax 
and in another store without tax. The single 
schedule with a low break line will give bet- 
ter protection for merchants with a large 
volume of small sales, while the higher range 
brackets, together with the reversed rule as 
to cumulative purchases, makes the same 
schedule reasonably adjustable to all mer- 
chants. The range in the brackets will be 
subject to further adjustment if sales ex- 
perience indicates the need for such adjust- 

Exempt Drugs and Medicines — 

It was stated by me on the floor before 
the Convention at Charlotte and, also, in the 
JouRNAii last month that under the provi- 
sion of the sales tax law, all drugs and 
medicines prepared and sold by the druggist 
under his label whether pursuant to prescrip- 
tion or across the counter, were exempt from 
the tax of 3 per cent. 

The Commissioner of Eevenue, however, 
after that time ruled that only those drugs 
and medicines that the druggist manufac- 
tures, mixes, and compounds, are exempt, 
applying to medicine sold upon prescription 
as well as to that sold over the counter. 

It is my contention now as it was at Char- 
lotte that all drugs and medicines put up by 
a druggist and sold under his label, whether 
pursuant to prescription or over the counter, 
are exempt from the tax. The matter is 
being considered by the Commissioner of 
Revenue and Director McMullan now and 
will be determined in the near future. It 
is my belief that our position in this par- 
ticular will be sustained by the Revenue De- 
partment in the main. You will be notified 
when this proposition is determined.

The Woman's Auxiliary Enthusiasti- 
cally Re-Organized 

We can 't ring down the curtain on the 
convention without mentioning the re-or- 
ganization of the Woman 's Auxiliary. Mr. 
Sterling Hubbard was good enough to send 
in the article below, which we are more 
than glad to publish — the organization is 
already enthusiastically beginning its work 
— give the ladies a hand ! 

"Of special interest to all members of 
both the N. C. P. A. and the T. M. A. is the 
reorganization of the Woman's Auxiliary 
during the Charlotte convention. Mrs. Lloyd 
Jarrett, of Biltmore, was elected president, 
Mrs. E. M. Hannon, of Charlotte, and Mrs. 
Sterling Hubbard, of Eeidsville, vice-presi- 
dents, and Mrs. J. B. Hunter, of Charlotte, 
secretary-treasurer. The officers are now 
working on a plan by which they hope that 
all wives of both druggists and T. M. A. 
members will enroll in the organization. Mrs. 
Hunter recently spent several days in Bilt- 
more as the guest of Mrs. Jarrett confer- 
ring about the work of the coming year. 

"By the next convention in Wrightsville 
the Auxiliary is hopeful that every lady 
interested in the N. C. P. A. and the T. 
M. A. will feel that she WANTS to be

with her husband, brother, or sweetheart at 
the meeting. The organization aims to pro- 
mote good fellowship among the ladies at- 
tending the convention, to see to it that 
every one knows every one else, and to 
make the occasion such an enjoyable one 
that no one attending will want to miss 
another meeting. 

' ' And that reminds me — listen you hus- 
bands, brothers and sweethearts — many of 
you get the Journal and never take it home 
—you leave it at the store. Why not start 
fight now with this issue to take the Journal 
home and you will find that the rest of your 
family will get a great kick out of reading 
it and will be more and more interested in 
the work of the N. C. P. A., the T. M. A., 
and their own Woman 's Auxiliary. You had 
just as well tell Friend Wife or Sister or 
Sweetheart about it yourself for she is 
SURELY going to hear about it and want 
to ' jine up.'

more power to you ! ' '

Thomas Drug Store, of Sanford, has just 
moved into a fine location which was for- 
merly occupied by the United Bank and 
Trust Co. The building has been completely 
remodeled and re-decorated, a new' fountain 
has been installed, and the store as now ar- 
ranged would do credit to a much larger city 
than Sanford. Mr. Robert H. Thomas is the 
popular owner of this store and has Mr.

better all the time. 

Druggists Meet with Maxwell 

Twenty-one representative retail druggists 
from all sections of the State met in Chapel 
Hill on July IS at the call of Revenue Com- 
missioner Allen J. Maxwell, Dean J. G. 
Beard, and Attorney F. 0. Bowman. A ten- 
tative plan was endorsed for collecting the 
sales tax under which all merchants will be 
classified in one bracket, instead of the four 
bracket plan that was used experimentally 
during the month of July. This plan be- 
came effective August 1st. It has also been 
adopted by the State Merchants Association 
and has been approved by the chain stores. 
Details will be announced in the state 
press. Under the plan used in July, 
which Commissioner Maxwell adopted as 
an experiment, merchants were classified 
in four different brackets depending on the 
amount of each individual sale. The new 
proposal replaces this with the single uni- 
form bracket. The following were present 
at the Chapel Hill meeting : Messrs. 
Allen J. Maxwell, Dean J. G. Beard, At- 
torney F. 0. Bowman, Messrs. I. W. Rose, 
and C. L. Eubanks, of Chapel Hill; and 
Messrs. P. B. Bissette, of Wilson; J. C. 
Hood, of Kinston; J. P. Stowe and R. K. 
Blair, of Charlotte; S. 0. Brewer, W. F. 
Rogers, and A. F. Duckett, of Durham ; R. I. 
Dailey, R. H. Tucker, and S. L. Hubbard, 

of Reidsville; C. M. and R. H. Andrews, of 
Burlington ; Warren W. Home, of Fayette- 
ville; R. A. McDuffie, of Greensboro; R. R. 
Herring and Sam Hall, of Oxford; and 
Harry McMullan, director of the sales tax 
division of the revenue department. 

Observers of the proceedings at the Chapel 
Hill meeting recalled that the N. C. P. A. 
at its meeting in June was perhaps the first 
sales organization in the State to resolve 
against any attempt to test the constitu- 
tionality of the sales tax and to pledge its 
co-operation to Commissioner Maxwell. 


We understand that a young man giving 
different names is calling on the druggists 
of the State claiming to be the nephew or 
the nephew by marriage of Mr. J. P. Stowe, 
of Charlotte, He asks for the loan of $10 
or more to repair his car which has just 
broken down on the way home, and states 
that it is imperative for him to reach his 
destination that day or night. He has used 
the name of Lea, or R. M. Shirley or pos- 
sibly others, and gives Charlotte as his resi- 
dence with a fictitious street address. Mr. 
Stowe asks the JOURNAL to announce that 
the young man is NOT a relative of his. 
He does not have any grown nephews or 
nephews by marriage and the offender should 
be stopped and arrested. We understand 
that in at least two instances the culprit has 
been accommodated with $8 and $10. 

Please Come Again! 

We were delighted to receive a visit sev- 
eral clays ago from Mr. and Mrs. Walter R. 
White, of Warrenton. (We wish more of 
our friends would come to see us.) We were 
greatly interested in what Mr. White told 
us about the store of which he and Mr. A. 
Jones are the proprietors. It is one of the 
oldest in the State, although its owners are 
quite young men. The pharmacy has always 
been operated under the name of the Hun- 
ter Drug Co. It was established in 1876 by 
Mr. Frank P. Hunter, then of Warrenton, 
and now representative of the Tilden Co. 
with headquarters in Portsmouth, Va. In 
1899 Mr. Hunter sold the business and Mr. 
M. M. Pendleton, of Warrenton, man- 


The Carolina Journal, of Pharmacy 

aged the pharmacy until his death in Feb- 
ruary, 1911. It was then bought by Messrs. 
"Bill" Burwell, Alpheus Jones, and Walter 
R. White, all of Warrenton. In 1916 Mr. 
Burwell disposed of his interest to the other 
two partners who are still operating it. 
There is a poison register in use in the 
pharmacy which has the date, June 28, 1881 
on the first entry. It has in it the signatures 
of quite a number of druggists and doctors 
who received their preliminary training in 
the store. Of interest also is the fact that 
the office of the Western Union Telegraph 
Co. has been located in the store for fifty 

Druggists Forming Local 

Quite a few of the larger towns in the 
State have recently formed local druggists 

Greensboro druggists, meeting sixteen 
strong on June 29, formed the Greensboro 
Druggists ' Association and elected the fol- 
lowing officers: president, C. C. Fordham; 
vice-president, W. M. McKinney; secretary- 
treasurer, Parke C. Stratford. The new as- 
sociation will meet monthly. The plan of 
the druggists is to perfect an organization 
and outline the purposes of the new asso- 
ciation within a short time. It will try 
' l to co-operate fully with the N. C. P. A., 
the Greensboro Merchants ' Association, and 
with the State revenue department in col- 
lecting the sales tax. ' ' The following have 
joined the local association: Messrs. C. C. 
Fordham, Sr., R. A. McDuffie, A. E. Weath- 
erly, C. M. Fordham, W. M. McKinney, J. 
T. Usher, C. C. O'Brien, H. F. Coble, V. F. 
Smith, Lon Russell, C. N. Herndon, C. M. 
Hilton, Clyde Daniels, P. A. Hayes, Maurice 
McNeely, and Parke C. Stratford. 

Members of a newly formed Wake County 
Druggists Association met on July 6 for 
luncheon at the Carolina Hotel, with the 
president, J. C. Brantley, presiding. The 
other officers are, Philip D. Gattis, vice- 
president, and R. I. Blackwell, secretary- 
treasurer. Mr. Harry McMullan, State sales 
tax administrator, and P. E. Griffis, of Win- 
ston-Salem, were the speakers on the pro- 

gram. The following were present: Messrs. 
J. C. Brantley, 0. C. Edwards, R. I. Black- 
well, H. C. Mayer, C. Rhodes, Julian White, 
M. B. Melvin, M. E. Dizor, R. C. Walton, 
R. E. Langdon, E. G. Sinclair, D. L. Jordan, 
C. H. Fleming, B. F. Page, P. I. Gattis, H. 
E. Craven, Kelly, E. 0. Edgerton, L. D. 
Cain, all of Raleigh; J. A. Underhill and 
Paul Brantley, of Wendell; and E. C. Dan- 
iel, of Zebulon. Mr. J. P. Swam, of the 
Raleigh Merchants Association, and Attor- 
ney F. 0. Bowman were also present. 

Decision to form a Durham Druggists As- 
sociation was made at a dinner conference 
at the Washington Duke Hotel on the even- 
ing of July 5. The club will be purely social 
in nature and will hold monthly dinner meet- 
ings. Mr. D. L. Boone has been made tem- 
porary president and a committee consisting 
of Messrs. Harris King, Weyland Liles and 
J. C. Taylor has been appointed to work 
out plans for the permanent organization 
of the club. President Boone has also ap- 
pointed a committee to study the sales tax 
problem, composed of Messrs. Germain Ber- 
nard, Ray Hoggard. D. M. McKay, and H. 
G. Coleman. At the initial meeting Dean 
J. G. Beard explained the Drug Institute; 
the new club was discussed by Mr. A. F. 
Duckett; Attorney F. 0. Bowman outlined 
the new rulings on the state sales tax, and 
Professor I. W. Rose spoke of general mat- 
ters of interest. ' ' Know Your fellow-drug- 
gist better and you will like him better ' ' 
was the slogan adopted for the local club. 
The following were present: Messrs. A. F. 
Duckett, D. L. Boone, H. G. Coleman, C. R. 
Hoggard, R. P. Rogers, A. L. Pearce, D. 
McN. McKay, J. R. King, E. S. Swindell, 
C. T. Byerly, J. C. Taylor, R. B. Spencer, 
H. L. King, C. J. Hazelgrove, W. A. Liles, 
T. T. Pickett, and S. 0. Brewer, all of Dur- 
ham; and J. G. Beard, F. 0. Bowman, C. L. 
Eubanks, and I. W. Rose, of Chapel Hill. 
The Durham druggists have joined the 
Drug Institute 100 per cent. 

We understand that Rocky Mount and 
Winston-Salem druggists have also formed 
Associations but we have been unable to 
date to secure particulars.

Mr. C. B. Andrews, of Carrboro, has an- 
nounced the engagement of his daughter, 
Lois Lillian, to Mr. Frank Benton Ham, of 
Greensboro, the wedding to take place some 
time in the early fall. The bride groom-elect 
is a son of Mr. and Mrs. N. R. Ham and 
graduated this June from the State Uni- 
versity where he was an honor student. He 
was a member of Rho Chi and Kappa Psi 
fraternities and served as student assistant 
in the laboratories during his senior year. 
He is now with Herndon 's Pharmacy in 

Announcement has been made of the ap- 
proaching marriage of Miss Mary Louise 
Huffman, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F. O. 
Huffman, of Morganton, to Mr. George 
Thomas Cornwell, of Shelby, the wedding 
to take place in August. Mr. Cornwell at- 
tended the State University where he took 
the course leading to the degree of S.B. in 
Pharmacy. About a year ago he became the 
proprietor, with Mr. B. N. Austin, of the 
Austin-Cornwell Drug Co., of Shelby. 


Miss Hallie Patterson Moore and Mr. 
James A. Sitison, both of Mount Airy, an- 
nounce their marriage on May 27 at the 
' home of the bride 's mother. Mr. Sitison is 
originally from Edenton and graduated 
from the State University School of Phar- 
macy in 1926. For the past five years he 
has been connected with the Hollingsworth 
Drug Co. in Mount Airy. 

Announcement was recently made of the 
marriage on July 25, 1932 in Media, Pa., 
of Miss Annie Jane Cagle and Mr. Roland 
Scott Whiteley, both of Greensboro. Mr. 
Whitely is a rising senior in the School of 
Pharmacy at the State University, where 
he is an honor student. 


Mr. William Aubrey McDaniel, age 40 
years, died at his home in Enfield on the 
afternoon of June 16. He had been in de- 
clining health for the past two years, the last 
six months of which he had been confined to 
his home. Mr. McDaniel was very popular 
among the druggists of the State and had 

been a member of the N. C. P. A. since 
1919. He was born in Artesia, Miss., on 
March 21, 1893, the son of Russell and 
Mamie (Rawlings) McDaniel. He received 
his pharmaceutical education at the State 
University and was licensed as a pharmacist 
in 1914. He had been associated with his 
brother, Mr. R. E. McDaniel, in the Harrison 
Drug Co., of Enfield since 1916. He was a 
devoted member and official in the Baptist 
church and one of Enfield 's most valuable 
citizens. On January 19, 1917 he was mar- 
ried to Miss Maud Lee Gunter, and to his 
bereaved widow, his mother, his brothers, 
and his children the Journal extends sin- 
cerest sympathy.

preached the doctrine of the greatest good 
to the greatest number, and we, who are 
living today, see this principle, in effect, 
proposed in the National Industrial Control 
Act an effort, national in its scope, to im- 
prove the mechanics of the distribution of 
wealth and prosperity. Indeed, the world 
is reviving some old theories and practicing 
new practices. 

I am confident that we possess in our 
membership, brains and ability equal to the 
task of solving the major portion of the 
unfair and uneconomic practices now threat- 
ening the very existence of our profession. 
The deliberations in Chicago will be con- 
structive and history-making in the realm 
of drugdom. Give your family and yourself 
the opportunity to observe the progress of 
man at the Great World's Fair. Give your 
business the advantage of what you may 
learn in the deliberations of the convention 
and finally, enjoy the hospitality of one of 
the finest group of pharmacists in the 
United States. We are the invited guests 
of the Chicago Retail Druggists. Those who 
know President Secord and his associates 
who compose their local association, need 
no further word from me as to the kind 
of genuine hospitality that it will be the 
pleasure of every Chicago druggist to render 
to each visiting delegate. 

Please come and give me the pleasure of 
shaking your hand in a spirit of good fel- 
lowship and in the cause of a better day 
for the independent retail druggists. 
Fraternally yours,

A Steady 

• • • • 

A steady flow of sales is the

steady advertising and steady

joys both these factors, and has 
accordingly become a real profit 
maker in headache remedies.
