How Did It Start ? 

The Vick Chemical Company 

This is the first in a series of short 
tehes of folks and firms we have known. 
lers will follow in due season. — Editor.) 

riie year was 1880. The location 
Selma, N. C. The man was 
nsforcl Richardson. A retail drug 
re was purchased. A series of 
;nts began that has no seeming end 
a river of little bine jars pours its 
)duet all over the world. Fifty 
[lion plus a year! 
When Mr. Richardson 
ved to Greensboro in 
^1 and purchased from 
W. Clark Porter the 
ail drug store in which 
Henry received his early 
ining he began to tinker 
h formulas — to make 
3 and that mixture, 
fne were good; some are 
g since forgot. Born in- 
this adventurous search 
the worthwhile was a 
v T e that has come to be 

rnationally famous. Vicks Vapo- 

n 1898 Mr. Richardson sold his re- 
store and started the wholesale 
| of L. Richardson Drug Co., that 
tow the Justice Drug Co. The line 
private brand remedies for minor 

slowly grew as the wholesale busi- 
es itself prospered. By 1905 it was 
nd advisable to form a separate 

company, called the Tick's Family 
Remedy Co., to make and sell some 
score of these successful products. A 
few years later the eldest son, H. 
Smith Richardson, joined his energies 
and talents with those of his father, 
and finally Lunsford, Jr., also came 
into the firm that had become the Vick 
Chemical Company. In 1919 Mr. 
Lunsford Richardson, Sr., died. 
1880 to 1919. A mere 39 years by 
the calendar. But long 
enough for one man with 
one idea to create an ever- 
growing, ever-living thing 
to make his shadow 
lengthen along the avenue 
of time. 

I first met VapoRub in 
1908 (it was then called 
Vick's Croup Salve) when 
in company with the late 
Dean Vernon Howell we 
visited the plant in Greens- 
boro. The product was giving a bit of 
trouble in that an occasional batch 
tended to separate and to be granular. 
The Dean offered a helpful suggestion 
which was adopted. Exactly ten 
years later I was elated over secur- 
ing a full page advertisement from 
the firm for this Journal. In the 
light of present sales this advertise- 
ment in question is interesting. Over 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

50,000,000 now, only a pitiful (?) 
6,725,400 jars were sold twenty-three 
years ago. Following is the language 
of the advertisement. Note that the 
product had a double name then — 
Vapo Rub — whereas now it is stream- 
lined to VapoRub.

'Rah for the South! 

"We have just been advised that Mr. 
Chas. H. Evans, of Warrenton, Ga., 
has been elected president of the A. 
Ph. A. for 1940-41. Mr. Evans is a 
retail pharmacist, a fine citizen, and a 
delightful gentleman. We are happy 
that enough members indicated him 
as their choice for his election by mail 
to result. Mr. Evans will be installed 
at the Richmond meeting in May of 
this year. 

What's My Name? 

This issue goes to press very short- 
ly after readers have received the 
previous number of the Journal. For 
this reason perhaps only a very small 
number of persons have sent in their 
answers to the eleven questions that 
were asked in the December article 
entitled "It Couldn't Be Anybody 

No one answered all of the ques- 
tions correctly, but 'Gene Rimmer, of 
Charlotte, missed only one (No. 11), 
and in addition he added interest to 

his reply by lining up his eleven mej 
in football formation. 

Here are the correct answers : 

1. Warren Home, Fayettevill 
father was a Confederate officer. 

2. The late Dean Howell, wl 
played football after he was 

3. P. J. Suttlenryre, Hickory, foj 
mer mayor of "The Best City." 

4. Fred Bowman, whose tribe us« 
all of the O's from "Olpha" 1 

5. Col. Wm. Brame, who joind 
the Navy and saw the world. 

6. Chris. Fordham, Greensboro, tl 
former athlete. 

7. Myron Bobbitt, Winston-Salei 
the bird hunter with a national do| 

8. "Uncle George" Pilkington. 
course. It couldn't be anybody els< 

9. Tom Simpson, whose clisti? 
guished father used to conduct 
short course in pharmacy. 

10. June Bush, Clinton, who col 
poses half of all of the twin register 
pharmacists in North Carolina. 

11. Dr. E. V. Zoeller, Tarboro, w| 
was Honorarv President of the 
Ph. A. in 1929-1930. 

It was said above that Mr. Riming 
taking advantage of the seasd 
rounded up his eleven and made) 
football team of them. His line frd 
end to end was made up' as follow 
Pilkington, Simpson, Fordham, Boj 
man, Brame, Bobbitt, and Hancoj 
(rather than Zoeller). In the bad 
field, June Bush called the plays I 
Home, Howell, and Suttlemyre. 

Postscript : We have just had wo 
that the Greensboro Drug Club, at 
meeting Dec. 8, answered all of t 
questions correctly. 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

Philip Daniel Gattis 

""rom time to time we pause and pay 
>ute to some pharmacist amongst us who 

entitled to praise. Our Man-of-the- 
ith this time is Phil Gattis, of Raleigh, 

il pharmacist and president of the X. 
Pharmaceutical Association. 
Ir. Gattis was born in Wake County 
| Raleigh on August 26, 1897. His 
her before her marriage was Miss Ella 
liams. The name of his father is Rob- 
Edwards Gattis. The latter owned a 
ry a number of years ago and young 
|l eventually became official custodian of 
te of the cow's. On the way to school in 
eigh he delivered milk, 

one point of delivery 

a drug store on Per- 

street near the pres- 

Person Street Phar- 
y which he now owns. 
t place appealed to 
t ; especially the man 
rhe white uniform and 
; products on display 
t could be bought for 
jickel. The latter unit 
currency loomed large 
|he kid's mind because 
represented what 
ned a million acorns 
! he would pick up 

sell. It was during 
se days that a resolu- 
. to study pharmacy 
ned and stuck. Mr. 
tis' practical experi- 
; covered the period 
I 1910 to 1916 and 
j served in the follow- 
j stores: Martin Street 
irmacy and J. C. 
ptley, both of Ra- 
!h; J. C. Wiley, of 
jthern Pines, and R. R, Beatty, of Char- 
'?. He passed the examinations of the 
Srd of Pharmacy in 1916 following study 
pie Max Morris course and attendance 
ji the sessions of Page's School of Phar- 
w. Mr. Gattis was attached to the 
jnical Warfare Service of the Medical 
iartment of the Army from August 1917 
(larch 1919 having the rank of Sergeant 
f being stationed most of the time at 
iewood, Maryland, but being called to 
ly other points while in line of duty, 
nmediately after leaving the Armv 
rch 19, 1919, to be exact) Mr. Gattis 

opened his first drug store — the Person 
Street Pharmacy — which he alone owns. In 
1929 he opened Person Street Pharmacy 
No. 2 in the Hayes-Barton section of the 
city. Both stores are enviable possessions. 
He has other property as well. 

To prove the civic -mindedness of the man, 
here are some of the payless positions he 
holds: Member of the Vocational and also 
the Crippled Children Committees of the 
Rotary Club; a director in both the Raleigh 
Chamber of Commerce and the Merchants 
Association; the Director of Nursing Serv- 
ice in the Community Chest; and a member 
both of the City Zoning 
and the City Extension 
Committees. His inter- 
ests are very wide. He 
belongs to the Country 
Huli; to the Tabernacle 
Baptist Church ; and is a 
32nd degree Mason, be- 
ing an officer of the Blue 

Mr. Gattis was married 
first to Miss Ludye Ethel 
Rogers, of Raleigh, who 
died September 24, 1926. 
Two girls, Misses Eleanor 
Glyn and Peggy, were 
born of this union. On 
February 18, 1930, Mr. 
Gattis was married to 
Miss Mary Morgan, of 
Raleigh. They have one 
child, Mary Morgan, aged 

We asked a friend of 
Mr. Gattis this question: 
"What is his hobby?" 
"Golf," the man an- 
nounced quickly, "but he 
is very fond of football, 
baseball, soft ball, and 
. . .," but we halted him because we have not 
room here to list all of the things of which 
Phil Gattis is fond. One of his main likes 
is Folks and to our way of thinking this 
explains much of his success. Whether he is 
dealing with doctors professionally and so- 
cially, or the average customer in his store, 
or young people, he always seems ready to 
listen intelligently and with interest. The 
man lives every moment he is awake and in 
our judgment he enjoys the art of living. 
We hope that the New Year will bring him

al Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act 

elow are stated in non-legal terms some 
he principal requirements of the Federal 
d, Drug, and Cosmetic Act as they relate 

to the labeling of drugs. These statements 
are not meant to be exhaustive, nor do they 
indicate the various exceptions and special 
cases in which they may not be applicable. 
For complete information, reference is made 
to the act itself and to the regulations. The 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

sections of the law and the applicable regu- 
lations are mentioned in connection with 
the various subjects discussed.

drug with the law unless he holds a guaranty in 
proper form. (Sees. 301(a), 303(c)). 

6 Any person who causes a drug to be adul- 
terated 'or misbranded while it is in interstate 
commerce violates the law. (Sec. 301(b)).

commerce and thereafter sells it or offers to sell 
it or give it away, is responsible for compliance 
with the act, unless he is protected by a guaranty 
in proper form. (Sees. 301(c), 303(c)). 

8. The adulteration, mutilation, destruction, ob- 
literation, or removal of labeling of a drug while 
held for sale after shipment in interstate com- 
merce, if this results in causing the article to be 
misbranded, constitutes a violation of the law. 
(Sec. 301(k)). 

9. Drugs sold under official names (Sec. 
201(g)) or under names creating the impression 
that the drugs are official drugs must comply with 
the official requirements except that they may 
differ from the official requirements in strength, 
quality, or purity only. If they do so differ

each such difference. Difference from official 
specifications in the identity of ingredients is not 
permitted. (See 501(b)). 

10. Official drugs should be packaged and la-

Friendships Through the Years 

There is no one who loves friends more 
;han I do. I spend a great deal of my 
irne thinking about those here, yonder and 
everywhere who have proved their friend- 
ihip in so many ways year in and year out. 
'. wish I could see such friends oftener — 
hat I could be with those who were in the 
School of Pharmacy the first year I began 
'pecking a typewriter" in old Person Hall 
ind likewise those who have followed them 
lown through the years to the recent gradu- 
ites of a few months ago. I often wish I 
ould enjoy a long chat with first this one 
ind that "in the good old way," or have a 
iard fought game of bridge with those who 
ised to drop down home for an evening 

always looked forward to, or to run down 
;o Pinehurst for a polo match, or to Dur- 
am for the movies, or somewhere else along 
[he trail where excitement called. I would 
;tke also to be with many other friends 
mong the pharmacists who have not been 
nder "my chaperonage" as Secretary of the 
ichool of Pharmacy. Three of these "coin- 
cides" I knew long before I ever thought of 
'ecoming a business woman and one of them 
akes delight to this day in joking me about 
try gay and giddy days. I can truthfully 
iay too that he is just as delightful a per- 
bn now as he was in the days when he was 
he toast of the campus. The second is my 
oss — nuf sed ! Here's to him ! And the 
bird is still the greatest ladiesman in the 
tate. (Guess who!) I could not write 
fnything about friendship without mention- 
hg that fine friend, Dr. E. V. Zoeller. He 
an never even guess how 7 I treasure his 
indness and goodness. 

I My friends have meant more and more 
I) me as the years go by. Tonight as the 
|d year draws to a close I am thinking 
iirticularly of these associates and as I feel 
|ke "gossiping with them" I am going to 
;se part of the space regularly allotted to 
|e and just talk! 

Don't You, Just Love Christmas? 

I I can say from the bottom of my heart 
, at each year Christmas means more and 
sore to me. I just love the Yuletide season 

id nothing gives me more joy than to deck 
ie house with holly; to trim the tree with 
ay tinsel and many candles; and to ob- 
1 rve all those customs that make up an old- 

fashioned Christmas! But the greatest joy 
of all comes from the greetings I receive 
from my friends. It is not exaggeration 
when I say that I know all the cards I 
received by heart and I wish to thank you 
one and all for thinking of me. My Christ- 
mas breakfast was wonderful — in the dining 
room was a piece of mistletoe that weighed 
almost twenty pounds and which was sent 
to me by a pharmacist who knows the joy 
I get from the Yuletide season. A beauti- 
ful poinsetta on the table was a gift of the 
women students of pharmacy at the Uni- 
versity, and the oranges, grape fruit, sau- 
sage, etc., were provided by pharmaceutical 
friends. Several telegrams came in while 
we were eating — in fact the whole day Mas 
filled with lovely surprises. Again I thank 
you one and all for your gifts, for your 
telegrams, and for your beautiful cards. 
President Gattis' card couldn't help but 
make you feel Christmas in your bones with 
its gay Santa Claus shouting, "hello." The 
photograph of Jim and "Mrs. Jim" Bowers 
with their attractive family around the 
Christmas table did your heart good and 
made you wisli anew that the Bowers did 
not live so far away. I must acknowledge 
too the greeting from one of my youngest 
friends, David Davis, Jr., of Wiliiamston, 
who has more pharmaceutical ancestors than 
anybody in the State. He is a handsome 
young man and his card was a photograph 
of himself, gayly smiling, as he threw a 
snowball and shouted "Merry Christmas" 
for himself and his nice mother and father. 
Then we must mention our friends who are 
in Uncle Sam's service. An airplane 
"zooming" through the sky brought the 
greetings of C. V. Timberlake and Marion 
Hamer who are now in training at Pensa- 
cola as aviators and will soon be commis- 
sioned as ensigns. E. H. Wilkins, who has 
been with the Marines for several years and 
whom I haven't heard from in months, writes 
from Scott Field, Illinois, that he is "at 
present an instructor in electricity at the 
Air Corps Technical School." 

And so I could write on and on about 
these friends but I dare not take more space 
so I will say good-night and 

"We hope you had a Christmas 
Bright with cheer and pleasure, 
And may the New Year hold 

More joy than you can measure."

Association, which will be held in Rich- 
mond, Va., the time to be announced later. 


Mrs. Frank Brumley, of Gastonia, has an- 
nounced the marriage of her daughter, 
Hazel, to Herbert Otis Champion, of 
Waynesville, at the home of the bride on 
Oct. 19. Mr. Champion is originally from 
Mooresboro and graduated in pharmacy at 
the State University in 1923. He was for- 
merly with drug stores in Shelby and Gas- 
tonia, but has been connected with Smith's 
Drug Store in Waynesville since the early 
part of 1936. Mrs. Champion has been as- 
sociated with the Smith Drug Co., of Gas- 
tonia for some time. 

Mr. and Mrs. D. P. Robinson are the very 
proud parents of a son, D. P., Jr., which 

was born on Nov. 7 and weighed 6 3-4 
pounds. Pharmacist Robinson is associated 
with the Lyon Drug Co., of Oxford. Oui 
congratulations ! 


News has just reached us of the sudder 
death of E. P. Gilkey, which occurred at his 
home in Asheville on Nov. 15. Mr. Gilke3 
was for many years connected with Raysor'i 
Drug Store in Asheville, retiring in 1925 
He was a great friend of the Managing 
Editor of this Journal and at the time oi 
his retirement an editorial, under the cap 
tion, "Gone: A Friend," was carried in oui 
pages paying tribute to him as a mos 
capable salesman and a splendid friend.

What About Barbiturates? 

A critical question in the minds of druggists at this time concerns the effect upon 

e sale of barbituric acid compounds of the new food and drug act. Does the state law- 
Section 15k refer to the acid alone or does it include all of its preparations, compounds 
derivatives'? May they be sold only on prescription, and if so, may the prescription 

ajally lie refilled ? These and several other questions pertaining to the N. C. Food, 

•ug and Cosmetic Act of 1939 are bothering pharmacists. 
At the time of going to press the editor is not able to furnish any reliable information 

iout the hypnotic section of the law. In a short time, however, the Department of 

agriculture will formulate definitions and promulgate certain regulations covering: these 

estions and will circularize the druggists of the State with the rules. In the meanwhile 

i suggest that druggists use good judgment in the disposal of barbiturates, selling none 
large quantities without a prescription. A N. C. law still on the statute books permits 

e sale of no more than twelve therapeutic doses of hypnotics at any one time without 

prescription. Let us not violate this law. 
While there is doubt, about the sale of barbituric acid, there is not any doubt about 

lfanilamide, amidopyrin, einehophen and neoeinchophen. These can be sold only upon 

iginal prescriptions. 
The Association is alive to its responsibility in connection with the new food and 

ug act. Its officers are anxious to secure and publish any and all information about 

e law at the earliest possible moment. 

Mr. Reamer Visits Us 

(Mr. I. T. Reamer, whose article appears below, is Chief Pharmacist at the Duke 
ospital, in Durham. Prior to his joining the Duke staff he held a similar position at 
>hns Hopkins, in Baltimore. We are glad to have this brief visit from Mr. Reamer. 


"To the Editor: 

"I am accepting the invitation which has been granted to me by way of the cover 
ge of the January, 1940, issue of the Carolina Journal of Pharmacy for a contribu- 
m to your very excellent Journal. 

"First let me tell you of the pleasure and enjoyment which have been mine since I 
st moved to your very attractive state almost ten years ago. Pharmacy is my first love 
d I have received splendid co-operation from everyone in the things which I have 
tempted to do here. Really I did not begin to enjoy my work half so much until I 
ined the North Carolina Pharmaceutical Association and began taking an active 
terest in the Association. I have more or less taken root in the Section on Practical 
larmacy and Dispensing where most of my activity has been confined. Presenting 
.pers in this Section twice and this year for the third time acting as Chairman of the 
ction has been a very rich experience for me. But to get on with my story. I travel 
great deal and quite often in pharmaceutical gatherings the discussion of standards in 
armacy becomes interesting subject matter for conversation. The first thought which 
mes to my mind on such occasions is that we allow men and women to become registered 

pharmacists in this state who have never had the benefit of one day's instruction in a 

12 The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

school of pharmacy. These people have all the rights and privileges of the men 
women who spend four of the best years of their life attending a school of pharnl 
at a cost of several thousands of dollars either of their own hard-earned money or tha 1 
their parents. The question which I raise is this — When and how are we going to pi 
stop to this irrational procedure?" 

Financial Condition of the Journal 

In accordance with custom the books of the Managing Editor of the Journal for 
year 1939 were audited by a Certified Public Accountant and his report follows:

ew Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act 

etail druggists are, perhaps, more inter- 
d in obtaining accurate and definite in- 
nation concerning their status with re- 
it to the new Food, Drug and Cosmetic 

than they have been in any other ques- 

that has arisen in a long time. Cer- 
ly, this office lias been besieged with 
e inquiries and requests as to how the 

law affects them than has been the case 
i any law enacted heretofore. 
1 the main, these inquiries have had to 
vith the sale by retail druggists of bar- 
rates. Unfortunately, it has not only 
l impossible, but still is, for the writer 
urnish this information, for the reason 

the officials who are charged with the 
>rcement of the Act have not promul- 
d even tentative regulations covering 

particular phase of the new law. 
entative regulations dealing with the 
r provisions of the drug law have been 

ared and agreed upon by the Federal 
fl and Drug Administration in Washing- 
and our State Officials in Ealeigh. The 
tion involving regulations dealing with 
nturates is now under consideration and 
eing studied further by the two govern- 
tal agencies, referred to. It is reason- 
to expect that the matter of barbitu- 
s will be ironed out and regulations de- 
ft upon with respect thereto before a 
t while. When this has been done and 

full tentative regulations have been 
ed upon by the officials, a date for a 
ing must be set and the hearing must 
eld before they are finally adopted and 
rulgated. Eepresentatives of the Board 
Pharmacy and, also, Members of the 
mtive Committee of the Association, 

are giving the entire proposition care- 
study and thorough consideration will 
resent and ask for such changes as they 
1 necessary to make the law workable 

its administration reasonable. 

this connection, "regulations so pro- 
bated shall become effective on a date 
by the Board of Agriculture, which 

shall not be prior to ninety days after 

3W, aside from the question of barbi- 
jtes, admittedly unsettled for the time 
g, we are able to furnish you what is 

believed to be definite information in con- 
nection with other drugs under the law, 
based upon rulings of the United States 
Food and Drug Administration and covered 
by our State Law. 

(1) (a) Aminopyrine, Cinchophen, Xeo- 
cinchophen, Sulfanilamide and their deriva- 
tives are dangerous drugs, and may be sold 
only under prescription of a physician, which 
may not be refilled. "These drugs will be 
considered misbranded unless they are so 
labeled as to prevent their use under other 

(b) Dinitrophenol and Dinitroeresol may 
not be sold even under a physician's pre- 
scription. "Any product containing these 
chemicals, designed for human use is con- 
sidered misbranded and may not be sold." 

(2) Barbiturates. Begulation governing 
barbiturates pending further study and in- 
vestigation. Status of same will not be 
determined until additional information is 
compiled and the study completed. 

Xo action will be taken in connection 
with the sale of barbiturates until regula- 
tion governing same is promulgated and 
notice given. 

One of the difficulties facing the officials 
is the apparent conflict between the provi- 
sions of Sub-section (A) of Section 15 and 
Sub-section (k). Under Sub-section (d) a 
drug shall be deemed misbranded: 

"If it is for use by man and contains 
any quantity of the narcotic or hypnotic 
substance alphaeucaine, barbituric acid, 
betaeucaine, bromal, cannabis, carbromal, 
chloral, coca, cocaine, codeine, heroin, 
marihuana, morphine, opium, paraldehyde, 
peyote, or sulphonmethane ; or any chemi- 
cal derivative of such substance, which 
derivative has been by the board after 
investigation, found to be, and by regu- 
lations under this Act, designated as, 
habit forming; unless its label bears the 
name and quantity or proportion of such 
substance or derivative and in juxtaposi- 
tion therewith the statement "Warning — 
May be habit forming." 
Under Sub-section (k) a drug shall be 
deemed to be misbranded: 

"If it is a drug sold at retail for use 
by man and contains any quantity of

By Alice Noble 

I had such a good time "talking" last 
month that I have been allowed to use part 
of my space again to discuss some of the 
things that are on my mind ! 

We Hate To Give You Up! 

Last month Ave carried notice of the death 
of W. Y. Minor, secretary-treasurer of the 
Owens and Minor Drug Co. Shortly there- 
after we learned that C. M. Knox, president 
of the firm, had been stricken with paral- 
ysis and is still quite ill. Today Jim 
Bowers, vice-president of the Company, 
writes that these two misfortunes will neces- 
sitate his presence in the office continuously 
and he has had to give up his traveling in 
N. C. Continuing he says: "I do love the 
Old North State and all the many friends 
I have made there in the more than thirty- 
six years that I have traveled. I do not 
believe that anywhere on earth there are 
any better people than in North Carolina — 
and especially in eastern N. C. . . . I am 
going to look forward each month to read- 
ing the Carolina Journal op Pharmacy 
and to seeing you all in Charlotte at the con- 
vention." Now we ask you, how on earth 
are Jim's friends going to get along with- 
out his visits? He not only supplies their 
pharmaceutical needs, but he is their friend 
in every sense of the word. 

Bight on the heels of the above announce- 
ment we learn through a reporter that Col. 
W. A. Brame is retiring after twenty-eight 
years of service as representative for Sharp 
and Dohme in eastern North Carolina. Writ- 
ing of him in the August, 1939, Journal, the 
Managing Editor praised his attitude to- 
ward his work and his profession, as well 
as characterized him "as the friend of all 
who know him and as the enemy of no man 
with whom he has had dealings." 

We sympathize with eastern Carolina 
druggists in the loss of the friendly visits 
from such men as Jim Bowers and Col. 
Brame and we do hope we will have the 
pleasure of seeing both of them at the con- 
vention! (Jim, be sure to bring the "Mrs." 
with you ! ) 

Association Founder Praised 

Have you read the Tar Heel Editor? We 
feel sure that you will enjoy this autobiog- 
raphy of Josephus Daniels. The book is 
filled with interesting stories about people 
you know. There is a most interesting sec- 
tion devoted to Edward Morse Nadal, of 
Wilson, the founder of the N. C. P. A. Mr. 
Daniels knew him intimately first as the 
close friend of his family, then as his teacher 

of history and arithmetic at the Wilson I 
legiate Institute, and most important of 
as the boy clerk in Mr. Nadal's drug sk' 
The author mentions with pride his o 
honorary membership in the N. C. P. A. a| 
asserts he "mailed the letters the Wils 
druggist sent out to fellow pharmacists p 
ing the way for their organization." Ir 
dentally these notices were sent out ah 
on the Ambassador's birthday. They w 
dated May 17 and Mr. Daniels' birthday 
May 18! 

We Make an Announcement with Pride ' 

For many years we have been collect: 
biographical data concerning the Assoc 1 
tion's members and officers. Quite a i 
of our readers remember that at the H:, 
Point meeting a large number of slii, 
were shown of our officers and those of 
T. M. A., the Woman's Auxiliary, and 
Board of Pharmacy. Only a few photograjj 
were missing of these "men of mark.' 
day we can proudly announce that the n] 
sing slides have been secured and we J 
lieve we now have a collection of pharij 
ceutical interest and value second to ml 
in the Union. 


Kappa Epsilon Goes National 

Elsewhere we are giving an account J 
the establishment at the State University; 
a chapter of Kappa Epsilon, national socj 
and professional sorority of women stude] 
of pharmacy. Now I ask you of yesll 
years if you ever dreamed "such thiJ 
could be" — that is, if you ever thought J 
men students would register in the Schl 
of Pharmacy in such numbers that thl 
would be a definite place for a womal 
pharmaceutical sorority? And let me i 
you also, they are a fine group of girls! 

President Gattis and I Agree on the 

For many a year I have always content 
that every day in the world is a fine daj 
"it matters not which way the wind d 
blow." If the day is fair there are so mi 
things to enjoy it seems silly to list th< 
while if it is cloudy or there is rain or si, 
there is so much pleasure in one's home t 
the day is not long enough to do all 
things that loom up. Yesterday Presid 
Gattis was in the office and he went me 
better — he says today is not only a fine (' 
because it is today but also because one 
take satisfaction in all the things that h, 
pened the day before. That's what ■ 
call fine philosophy!

Elaborate plans are being perfected for a

Hotel on the evening of March 5 honoring 
Charles H. Evans, prominent retail drug- 
gist and citizen of Warrenton, Ga., recently 
elected president of the American Pharma- 
ceutical Association. A great assembly of 
Georgia druggists and their wives with dis- 
tinguished visitors from other states, in- 
cluding officers of the national association, 
will be present for the affair. Mr. Evans is 
the third Georgia man to be honored with 
the presidency of the A. Ph. A. 

We understand that J. H. Pearce, former-

At a "Christmas dinner" meeting of the

We congratulate J. A. Suttle, of Shelby, 
on his completion of thirty-seven years serv- 
ice as the proprietor of a drug store. Mr. 
Suttle celebrated the event by a complete 
remodeling of his pharmacy. The expression 
"everything new except the location" de- 
scribes the physical change in the store, but 
in announcing the formal re-opening the 
proprietor asserts "as times change, Suttle's 
changes . . . but only in progress and ap- 
pearance. One thing, however, will never 
change — Suttle's 37-year-old policy of 
Quality, Service, Low Prices and Fair Deal- 
ing." A reporter described the pharmacy as 
follows: "It's a blonde beauty — completely 
streamlined with natural color prima vera 
wood fixtures, re-decorated walls and ceil- 
ing, in striking contrast with a modern 
checkered floor of asphalt tile. Handsome 
lighting fixtures, of the approved semi-in- 
direct type, supply a glowing flood of illu- 
mination for the entire length of the store. 
On the opening day refreshments were 
served and prizes awarded." 

We understand that a new drug store 
opened for business in Siler City late in the 
year under the name of the Bell-Edwards 
Drug Co. The pharmacy is under the man- 
agement of L. R. Bell, formerly with the 
Walgreen Drug Co., of Ealeigh, and W. S. 
Edwards, who has been the proprietor of 
Edwards Drug Store in Siler City. The new 
pharmacy is located at the site of the Ed- 
wards store. 

We read witli interest and pleasure a 
tribute to E. E. Missildine, of Tryon, in 
the January number of the Southeastern 
Drug Journal. The publication further hon- 
ors the Tar Heel druggist by carrying a pic- 
ture of him on the front cover page. Mr. 
Missildine is a Life Member of the N. C. 
P. A. and served as president of the or- 
ganization 1920-21. 

Friends will regret to hear that J. D. 
Johnson, brother of the Asheville druggist, 

R. J. Johnson, was seriously injured on 
Jan. 3rd when he was struck by an autofj 
mobile as lie attempted to cross the street! 
in front of Biihmann's Drug Store. Mr.j 
Johnson is confined to the Biltmore Hospital i

Kappa Epsilon Receives Charter 

', Kappa Epsilon society, an organization 
f young women students of pharmacy at 
jie State University, became a member of 
be national pharmaceutical sorority when 
: : was presented with a charter at cere- 
lonies on the University campus, January 
•2-13. The society was formed at Howell 
Tall on April 27, 1938 "to foster a medium 
vrough which young women enrolled in the 
Jchool might co-operate with the school fac- 
lty, increase professional consciousness, 
tirnulate scholarship and provide a bond 

of friendship." Miss Altajane Holden, of 
Bunnell, Fla., was elected president for the 
first year. Miss Gertrude Horsch, national 
vice-president, presided at the recent in- 
stallation ceremonies and presented the 
charter. Miss Anna Dean Burks, of Chapel 
Hill, was installed as president with the 
following other officers : Misses Elizabeth 
Weaver, of Chapel Hill, vice-president; 
Blanche Burrus, , secretary; Jessie Lee Smith, 
of Robbinsville, treasurer ; and Altajane 
Holden, member-at-large. Other members 
of the sorority who were initiated are: 
Misses Ernestine Barber, of Williamston; 
Rose Stacy, Josephine Eldridge, June and 
Jean Bush, all of Chapel Hill. Pledges will 
be announced shortly. Several social events 
were held in connection with the installa- 
tion. These included a banquet at the Caro- 
lina Inn and a tea at the Graham Memorial. 
At the latter function University authorities, 
the special Faculty of the School, and rep- 
resentatives of the student body were guests. 
While in Chapel Hill Miss Horsch was the 
house guest of Miss Alice Noble, advisor of 
the sorority. 

Council Portrait Presented 

A generous donor who insists upon re- 
maining anonymous has presented the 
School of Pharmacy with a well-executed 
oil painting of C. T. Council, of Dur- 
ham. The portrait now hangs in the Dis- 
pensing Laboratory that was given to the 
School five years ago by Mr. Council. It is 
hoped that X. C. pharmacists visiting 
Chapel Hill will also visit Boom 305, Howell 
Hall, and see the interesting picture of Mr. 

The Story Behind Norwich Products 

Visitors to the laboratories of the Nor- 
wich Pharmaeal Co. have so frequently ex- 
pressed surprise about the size of the plant 
and the ultra-modern methods and equip- 
ment used in the production of Norwich 
products that officials of the company de- 
cided to publish an illustrated book which 
would give an idea of this up-to-date phar- 
maceutical laboratory. We have just had 
the pleasure of looking over this thirty-six 
page picture book with the title, "The 
Story Behind Your Confidence in Norwich

Products." Representatives of the firm are 
distributing to the trade copies of this book 
of over 100 photographs so that all may 
take a pictorial journey through the plant 
of the company. 

Augustus Bradley Retires 

Friends will be interested to hear that 
Augustus Bradley, of Burlington, having 
reached the retirement age, will leave his 
post as an inspector of the United States 
treasury department, effective Feb. 1st. 
Upon reaching the age limit as set forth in 
the law, retirement is compulsory. Licensed 
as a pharmacist in 1891 Mr. Bradley was for 
many years in the drug business in Bur- 
lington. He was president of the N. C. P. 
A. 1896-1897, having previously served as 
third, second, and first vice-president. He 
has been in the treasury service for the 
past twenty years and for the past ten years 
in the district of New York. Still as active 
and alert as a man many years his junior, 
Mr. Bradley states he has no immediate 
plans to engage in business. 

Seized Bromo Seltzer Returned 

An arrangement has been entered into 
between the United States Government and 
the Emerson Drug Co. under the terms of 
which goods seized under claim that they 
violated a provision of the new Food and 
Drugs Act, have been returned. The formula 
for Bromo-Seltzer was modified some months 
ago and it is believed there will be no 
further litigation. 

Board of Pharmacy Examinations 

The next examinations of the North Caro- 
lina Board of Pharmacy will be held in 
Chapel Hill on June 18. Full information 
concerning the examinations may be ob- 
tained from Secretary-Treasurer F. W. 
Hancock, Oxford, N. C. 

Executive Committee Meets 

The second meeting of the Executive Com- 
mittee of the N. C. P. A. for the year 1939- 
40 was held in Chapel Hill on Jan. 17 with 
every member present. Routine business was 
disposed of and the dates May 21, 22, and 
23 were selected as the time for the 1940 
convention. As has been announced previ- 

ously, the meeting will be held in Charlotti 
with the Hotel Charlotte as convention head,

It is with real sorrow that we announce 
he death on Jan. 16 of Thomas Ruffin Hood, 
if Smithfield, former president of the N. 
. P. A. and a charter member of the or- 
anization who had retained his member- 
lip and interest in Association affairs since 
;s founding. Mr. Hood was born in Wake 
jounty on Sept. 29, 1857, the son of John 
ogdell and Martha (Young) Hood. His 
ather was a prominent druggist, and many 
his relatives were connected with the pro- 
ession. He moved to Smithfield in 1871 
nd in 1873 formed a partnership with Dr. 
E. Kirkman under the firm name of 
lood and Kirkman. It was in this store 
hat young Mr. Hood began his long ex- 
perience as a pharmacist, working at first 
I an apprentice and by 1877 as a full- 
ledged pharmacist. He acquired an inter- 
st in the firm on Jan. 1, 1879. On Nov. 
19, 1887 he joined with his brother B. R. 
lood, and bought the drug store of Sasser, 
Voodall and Co., a competing firm, and 
hanged the store name to Hood Brothers. 
Jince this purchase the business has con- 
inued under the same name and at the 
ame stand, having in 1891 absorbed the 
T. R. Hood and Co. drug store. In latter 

ears, however, the pharmacy has belonged 

Mr. Hood's two sons, W. D. and H. C, 
he father having retired. For nineteen and 
i half years he served as president of the 
?irst-Citizens Bank and Trust Co., of Smith- 
ield, and was a director for almost a half 
i century. He was possibly the most active 
nember of the local Methodist church in its 
listory and was a member of the board of 
itewards, serving as recording secretary for 
)ver fifty years. He was married on Feb. 

1 1881 to Miss Lucy Woodall, of Smithfield, 
vho survives him as well as the two sons 
nentioned above and three daughters. His 
photograph has hung on the walls of the 
ffowell Hall of Pharmacy at the State Uni- 
versity for many years and during his fu- 
leral this likeness was appropriately draped 
n mourning. President Phil Gattis offi- 

cially represented the Association at the 
services and many other druggists were in 
attendance. Hundreds of telegrams were 
also received from sympathizing friends. 

Shortly after the death of Mr. Hood 
came the announcement that Henry Thomas 
Hicks, of Raleigh, had passed away early 
on the morning of Jan. 24. Born on March 
4, 1866 near Raleigh and the son of Henry 
Clay and Catherine (Broughton) Hicks, this 
well-known pharmacist and manufacturer 
was educated in the private schools of Wake 
county, and at the Raleigh Male Academy. 
He was licensed as a pharmacist in 1885 
having previously obtained his apprentice 
training under Dr. Nagle, of Hot Springs, 
and in the Raleigh stores of Dr. W. H. 
Bobbitt and Pescud Lee and Co. When he 
passed the Board in Nov. 1885 he continued 
with Pescud's Drug Store until the late 
"eighties" when he entered the Philadelphia 
College of Pharmacy. Completing the course 
with high honors, he worked a while for 
Carmichael's Pharmacy, of Asheville, but 
wishing to return to Raleigh he accepted a 
position with Jas. McKimmon, where he re- 
mained as prescriptionist until 1893. He 
then began business for himself at the east 
corner of Fayetteville and Morgan Sts. 
under the firm name of Snelling and Hicks. 
In this location Mr. Hicks continued in the 
retail drug business until Feb. 5, 1923, the 
firm names in the interim having been Hicks 
and Rogers, then Henry T. Hicks and Co., 
and finally Hicks-Crabtree Co. During this 
time other stores were added. From the 
time Mr. Hicks disposed of his retail stores 
until his death he devoted his energies to 
the affairs of the Capudine Chemical Co., 
of which he was the founder and president. 
"Capudine," the chief product of this con- 
cern, was first made in 1898 at the Fayette- 
ville and Morgan St. store, but by 1904 its 
popularity had so increased that it was 
necessary to incorporate a separate company 
for its manufacture. Mr. Hicks was also 
interested in many business enterprises and 
belonged to several lodges and clubs. He 
joined the N. C. P. A. in 1897, changing 
his affiliation to a Life Membership in 1917. 
He has held many offices in the organization 
including that of local secretary in 1918 and 
president in 1902-03. He has also con- 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

tributed a number of interesting and in- 
structive papers and his services have often 
been given in furthering legislative meas- 
ures initiated by the Association. Mr. 
Hicks had been in bad health for some 
time and entered Eex Hospital a few days 
before his death suffering from heart and 
asthma trouble. He was married to Miss 
Ida Snelling on Jan. 6, 1892 and to her 
and his two sons, William S. and Harry T., 
as well as other relatives, the Journal ex- 
tends sincerest sympathy. The editors had 
confidently expected to use a full page cut 
of Mr. Hicks in this issue and were greatly 
disappointed to discover that the 4x6 
electro in our files had in some manner be- 
come too marred for reproduction. The 
Journal was already in press when the 
news of Mr. Hicks' death reached us and 
there was not enough time remaining for a 
new picture to be secured and a new cut 
to be made from it. The photograph from 
which the original cut was made occupies 
a prominent place in the corridor of the 
School of Pharmacy at the University of 
North Carolina. On the day of the funeral 
this picture was draped in mourning. Due 
to the heavy snow the roads to Ealeigh were 
almost impassable the day of the funeral 
services but in spite of this fact many out- 
of-town druggists were in attendance. 
President Gattis officially represented the 

Norman Morrow, aged fifty-one, well- 
known druggist of Gastonia, died at his 
home in the Orthopaedic Hospital section 
early on the morning of January 22 follow- 
ing a long period of ill health. Mr. Morrow 
had been confined to his bed for the past 
six or seven weeks. Prior to that time, over 
a period of nearly two years, he had been 
intermittently at his place of business, the 
Loray Drug Store. His death was the result 
of a heart affection of long standing. Mr. 
Morrow was a native of Gastonia, having 
been born on Aug. 29, 1888. He was 
licensed as a pharmacist in 1909 and with 
the exception of short periods spent in drug 
stores in Darlington, Asheville, and Kings 
Mountain, his business life had been spent 
in Gastonia. For the past fourteen years 
he had owned and operated the Loray Drug 
Store, and before that had been the pro- 
prietor of the Morrow Drug Store. He is 

survived by his widow, who was Miss Anni« 
Wilson, of Darlington, S. C., and a son and|

Important Information 

The Executive Committee met February 
and appointed Professor Ira W. Rose as 
feting Secretary-Treasurer of the Assoeia- 
m and also as Acting Managing Editor 
the Journal to replace this writer who 
11 be on a leave of absence from the 
liversity during the Spring quarter of 
is year. The effective date of the change 
March 15. All members of the Committee 
re present except Messrs. Ferrell and 
ttlemyre who expected to attend but were 
evented at the last moment from doing so. 
The April issue goes to press March 14, 


hence the first Journal to be published under 
the new management will be the Program 
Number for May. 

Professor Rose has been a member of the 
Association continuously since 1906, the year 
he graduated and was licensed. He has 
missed only three meetings since he affiliated 
with the organization. It is safe to say 
that the organization does not have a mem- 
ber more devoted to its cause or more loyal 
in its support. He served as president dur- 
ing the year 1921-22. From 1909-1918 and 
from 1920-1933 he was a member of the N. 
C. Board of Pharmacy. Since 1932 he has 
been Professor of Practical Pharmacy at 
the State University being in charge of the 
courses in Dispensing, etc. — J. G. Beard. 

Help Re-elect Durham 

Shortly now the voters in the Sixth Dis- 
trict of North Carolina will determine who 
will represent them in the next Congress. 
Every county in the District has a nominee 
seeking the office. In the group, as readers 
know, is the present incumbent, Hon. Carl 
T. Durham. He must be re-elected. Not 
just because he is a pharmacist but be- 
cause he has proved that he is a good man 
to have in Washington these days. 

We pharmacists often speak of how 
powerful we could be politically if we ever 
set our hand to it. This is because we 
are in contact with so many people and 
have such fine opportunities to suggest the 
cause or the candidate that we may en- 
dorse. It is high time, however, that the 
pharmacists of the Sixth District begin 
using their political influence if they want 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

Mr. Durham to be re-elected. It is dan- 
gerous to assume that he will be returned 
without help, because he has strong opposi- 
tion. May we urge every registered phar- 
macist in the district to constitute himself a 
committee of one and begin working for 
Durham votes in the May Primary. 

Rubbing Alcohol Sales 

The Legal Section carries a full descrip- 
tion of the new regulations governing the 
sales of rubbing alcohol compounds. We 
regret that the official news did not 
"break" in time for us to publish it last 

The significance of the ruling that allows 
pharmacists only to sell rubbing alcohol is 
to be found mainly in the illicit traffic in 
this product that has been going on through 
other channels of trade. This is a trust 
but like many privileges it carries a definite 
responsibility. Pharmacists, we believe, will 
measure up to this trust intelligently and 

It has not been uncommon to find rubbing 
alcohol being sold at six cents a pint in 
this State. Why anybody should have sup- 
posed that legitimate sales in number could 
be made for this price is beyond under- 
standing. There will be no more six-cent 
alcohol. And certain "gyp" concerns will 
have to look for another racket after this. 

A. Ph. A. Issue New Journal 

A new and needed pharmaceutical publi- 
cation has just made its appearance. It is 
called the Practical Pharmacy Edition of 
the Journal of the American Pharmaceuti- 
cal Association. Edited by Dr. E. F. Kelly, 
Secretary of the A. Ph. A., it is expected 
that the new journal will appeal strongly 
to practical pharmacists. For the year 
1940 the publication will be mailed with- 
out subscription cost to all of the dues- 
paid members of state pharmaceutical asso- 
ciations. A list of the dues-paid members 
in the N. C. P. A. has been sent to Dr. 
Kelly. If you do not receive your copy and 
yet have paid your dues, please advise this 
office and the error will be corrected. 

The average pharmacist receives without 
the asking a host of free literature. Some 
of it is good but too much is just straight 
trash. All of us need to subscribe to and 

read about three periodicals if we are I 
keep abreast of pharmaceutical develoj 
ments. The time spent in reading goo 
literature is productive time. However, tr. 
average pharmacist referred to — accordin" 
to studies made of him — does not do mue' 
reading in his own field. He is "too busy.

man's ability is determined by the numbe' 
of things he does that other men are "to 
busy" to do.) To those who want to reaJ

Some Drugs Come High 

A drug store recently reported to us tha 
it had been refilling one prescription on ai 
average of every thirty to sixty days sine, 
1930 at a price of $22. This is an extreme 
example of the cost of some drugs, of coursa 
but nevertheless it worries druggists whj 
have to charge very high prices for som 
of the expensive products now being pu 
upon the market. We wish that doctors wh> 
prescribe such costly medicaments w r ould sa; 
to their patients : "This is an expensive 
remedy," in order to forewarn and prepare 
the purchaser for prices that he would other, 
wise think of as excessive.

avors Limiting Sale of Barbiturates 
to Prescriptions 

We received a letter recently that is typi- 
il of the thoughts of those druggists who 
)pose the sale of hypnotics except under 
rict control. Not all druggists agree, how- 
•er, with all of the positions taken in the 
tter below. We will gladly publish other 
tters on the subject. 
o the Editor: 

"I have just been shown your editorial in 
e February Journal which states that 
ere is doubt about the sale of Barbituric 
cid and its derivatives without a prescrip- 
on. I am writing this letter to urge you 

use your best influence to have the De- 
iirtment include it in all its forms in the 
w. I am sure that if you could see, as I 
tve seen, some of the terrible tilings this 
ug and its derivatives have done here in 
ir own city you would do what you can 

have it barred except on prescription. 

is a rare thing that a doctor gives a 
itient any of these barbiturates that the 
itient does not continue to take them and 
■adually in greater quantities until often- 
aies their lives are ruined, their homes are 
lined, and their whole moral character is 
oken down. 

"I urged the local Medical Society to go 
fore the Legislature last time and have 
gislation passed to stop it and they prom- 
3d me they would but did nothing about 
It is a disgraceful situation and no 
[sponsible druggists wants it this way. 
ir local druggists at my urgent request 
ve already agreed to place it under the 
in and for some time we have not sold it 
cept on prescription. The state law ai- 
ding 12 doses to a person means abso- 
tely nothing. Customers can come in here 
d buy 12, and then go to every other 
ore in town and buy 12. That's a joke 
A we all know it. I just want to say 
at while the State Department of Agri- 
lture has the opportunity I would like to 
3 them urged to put all barbiturates under 
escriptions only. I believe after care- 
lly reading the law that it will hold up 

Court and while the druggists are recep- 
- e to this interpretation and many of 
em have already accepted it, then why 
t try it anyway! I don't believe anyone

Equipment Requirement for Registra- 
tion of Drug Stores 

Reported by H. C. McAllister 

At the November meeting of the Board 
of Pharmacy, certain measures regarding 
the registration of new drug stores were 
found desirable in order to further protect 
the public health and welfare. It has been 
found that a large number of stores and es- 
pecially new stores, at the time of opening, 
were sadly lacking in technical equipment. 
It was felt that this absence of necessary 
equipment constituted a potential danger to 
the public health and, therefore, deserved 
some remedy. 

The matter of technical equipment re- 
quirements is not a new thing since some 
states already demand that the store inven- 
tory contains a minimum list of equipment 
before it is registered. Also it is apparent 
from the statutes that those who wrote our 
laws anticipated some such conditions as we 
have at present with regard to the registra- 
tion of new drug stores since the law states 
— "the fee for such registration, whether 
original or annual, shall be one dollar, and 
upon payment thereof the Board of Phar- 
macy shall issue a permit to applicant en- 
titled to receive same." It is very reasonable 
that in order to be entitled to receive a per- 
mit the store must be properly equipped to 
carry on the practices for which the permit 
grants the privilege. Therefore, when the 
Board makes these requirements for techni- 
cal equipment it is only exercising the au- 
thority granted it by law to protect properly 
the public in the distribution of medication. 

At present no definite list of required 
equipment has been adopted. However, the 
application for the registration of a new' 
drug store provides for such. Those who 
contemplate the opening of stores in the 
future will be interested to note that the 
following appears in the application form: 

"I hereby agree that if the Board of 
Pharmacy will register the said drug store 
and issue to me a permit that the manage- 
ment of the store will be conducted in strict 
compliance with the North Carolina Phar- 
macy Law. 

"I further agree that said store will be 
equipped as the North Carolina Board of 
Pharmacy may require." 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

We feel that this is a progressive step 
and hope that the Board will soon see fit to 
extend these requirements to stores already 
established, which it will, no doubt, do. 
Certainly we cannot expect public support 
and co-operation from the allied professions 
unless we adequately meet our obligation to 
protect the public health and in the matter 
of equipment most of us are failing our 

A Pharmacy Senate at Chapel Hill 

Reported by E. A. Brecht 
A Pharmacy Senate was organized recent- 
ly at the School of Pharmacy. This new 
group has been patterned on the Phi and 
Di Senates of the University of North Caro- 
lina. The Pharmacy senate will discuss the 
present-day topics of commercial pharmacy. 

E. A. BRECHT, Ph.D., 

Instructor in Pharmacy at the University 
of North Carolina 

The need of such a discussion group seems 
apparent when the future role of students is 
considered. As educated men of respon- 
sible positions in their communities they 
will be expected to be leaders. Leading 
usually boils down to speaking. Unfortu- 
nately speakers are seldom born, but they 
can be developed. A test of this proposi- 
tion is usually apparent at any State Asso- 

ciation meeting. Isn't it usually true thai 
all of the talking (and therefrom the shap 
ing of policy, etc.) is done by less than five 
per cent, of the members present? Th( 
failure to participate by the other ninety 
five per cent, is not due to the lack ol 
equally worth-while ideas, but it due to 
fear of giving their opinions because thej 
don't feel able to express themselves befon 
an audience. 

The Pharmacy Senate gives the member! 
a chance to practice speaking before ai 
audience, an audience which is charitable 
towards the mistakes which are bound to b(! 
made at first. The meetings are started 
by prepared introductions of the topic ol 
discussion, followed by additions, correc 
tions, variations, and deviations, but non< 
of the opinions are read from script. 

The topics are selected for their timeli 
ness and importance with the purpose of in' 
creasing the students' understanding anc 
appreciation of Pharmacy as it is practiced 
This is of special value to those student: 
who have had very little contact with druj; 
stores. However, most of the memberi 
have had at least one year of active worl 
in a pharmacy. At the first meeting tin 
present status of barbiturate sales was con| 
sidered, from which several interesting con! 
elusions were derived. A partial list o 
topics for later consideration are : the opeij 
prescription department, price-cutting meth 
ods and policy, open display ("pine boani 
stores"), fair trade laws, the possibilities 
and probabilities of a pharmaceutical laboj 
union or guild, the limitation of drug sale! 
to pharmacies, self-regulation of the dru? 
industry, and the crime of some drug spe 1 

Membership has been limited to thos 
students who have indicated a willingness t 
engage actively in the discussions. ij 
other words, there are no members wh| 
come only to listen. The chairmanship is r 
volving, thus giving practice in this impof 
tant function to as many as possible. A. 
though the introductions of the topics an 
much of the discussion is voluntary, th 
members must be ready to present an in 
promptu opinion when so indicated by th 
chairman. To date the membership nurr 
bers about twenty, with just about equ£ 
distribution among the four classes.

< Under the provisions of a new regulation 
:"T. D. 4963), amending regulation No. 3,

ented to be a Rubbing Alcohol Compound. 
Sales of Rubbing Alcohol Compounds by 
Manufacturers or wholesale druggists must

urchasers who acquire the product for legit- 
mate external use and not for resale, such 
1 hospitals, sanitariums, clinics, Turkish 
Uths, athletic associations, physicians, den- 
lists, veterinarians, etc. 

This product may also be sold by retail 
A'uggists to any of the foregoing (in quan- 
ity lots) or in retail quantities only to other 
Persons for external use. Sales to such 
\ther persons by retail druggists must be 
•lade through a registered pharmacist, icho 
\;ill, at the time of sale, write or stamp 
[cross the brand label in contrasting colors 
V sold by" followed by his (the pharma- 
cist), name and the address of the retail 
)rug store where the sale is made. 

A manufacturer, wholesale druggist, retail 
ruggist or any other person shall not sell 
tubbing Alcohol Compound for use or for 
^ale for use, for beverage purposes, nor shall 
t.e sell such product under circumstances 
rom which it might reasonably appear that 
t is the intention of the purchaser to pro- 
ure the product for use, or for sale for use, 
or beverage purposes. 

Rubbing Alcohol Compound shall be 
>ackaged in bottles by the manufacturer 
yhen it is to be sold to the ultimate eon- 
umer, such bottles shall not exceed one pint 
a capacity. It must bear a brand label and 

caution notice, placed thereon by the man- 
facturer only. 

The brand label must contain the follow- 
ng information: 

1. The brand or trade name of the 
product, if any. 

2. The legend "Rubbing Alcohol Com- 
pound ' ' which shall be in letters of the 
same color and size as the brand or trade 

3. The name and address of the manufac- 
turer. (Where rubbing alcohol compound 
is manufactured and bottled under the name 
of a dealer for resale, the manufacturer may 
place his symbol and permit number on the 
label in lieu of his name and address, pro- 
vided the name and address of the person 
for whom manufactured is shown. ) 

4. The legend "Contains 70 per cent ab- 
solute alcohol by volume." 

5. The legend "For External Use Only. 
If taken internally, serious gastric, disturb- 
ances will result. ' ' 

The caution notice, which shall appear 
on the back of the bottle and no where else, 
shall be printed in plain legible type of not 
less than 6-point, and must read as follows: 

"CAUTIOX NOTICE:— The sale of this 
product by the manufacturer, or the whole- 
sale druggist, must be made directly, or 
through his employees, only to wholesale or 
retail druggists, and to purchasers who ac- 
quire the product for legitimate external 
use, such as hospitals, sanitariums, clinics, 
turkish baths, athletic associations, physi- 
cians, dentists, veterinarians, et cetera. This 
product may be sold by retail druggists to 
any of the foregoing, or in retail quantities 
only to persons for external use. Sales to 
such other persons must be made by a retail 
druggist through a registered pharmacist, 
who will write or stamp across the brand 
label in contrasting colors the words 'Sold 
by' followed by his (the pharmacist) name 
and address of the retail drug store where 
the sale is made. Sales for other than ex- 
ternal use will subject the dealer to special 
tax as a dealer in liquors and to the internal 
revenue tax on the alcohol contained in this 

The regulation became effective in its 
publication by the Treasury Department, 
January 18, so far as sales by the manu- 
facturer or wholesale druggist is concerned. 
Manufacturers are permitted to use their 
present supply of approved labels until ex- 
hausted, providing these labels are supple- 
mented by the caution notice prescribed in 
the new regulation. 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

As stated at the outset, the regulation af- 
fecting sales of this product by retail drug 
stores through registered pharmacists, be- 
came effective February 17, 1940. Eetail 
drug stores, through their pharmacists, may 
sell their stock of Rubbing Alcohol Com- 
pound on hand, provided they observe the 
requirement calling for the stamping of the 
name and address of the store and the name 
of the pharmacist dispensing it. 

Stocks of Rubbing Alcohol Compound now 
in the possession of persons not entitled to 
sell same under the new regulation, may be 
sold for external uses only, until the stock 
is closed out. 

While the regulation specifically provides 
that sales of Rubbing Alcohol Compounds 
may be made only by a licensed pharmacist, 
at the same time it is believed that the Al- 
cohol Tax Unit will issue a ruling providing 
for the sale of this product by assistant 

It is true, also, that the regulation makes 
no provision for the sale of Rubbing Alco- 
hol by the physician-operated drug stores. 
It is possible that this situation may be 
overcome, if the physician can uphold the 
position that his customers are his patients. 

Both of these questions have arisen since 
the promulgation of the new regulation. 
These have been submitted to the Commis- 
sioner of Internal Revenue, and are now 
being considered.

Convention Time 

1 "If winter comes, can spring be far be- 
Lnd?" This age-old query has been asked 
iany times and with each question and 
bswer comes the consciousness that spring 
, the very nicest season in the whole year — 
ad springtime is also convention time! The 
I". C. P. A. will hold its sixty-first annual 
invention in Charlotte on May 21, 22, and 
3 and it is not too early now for you to 
^ake your plans to be on hand from the 
rst to the last minute of this "biggest and 
3st" meeting in the history of the Associa- 
on. Ever since the announcement was 
ade that we were to meet in Charlotte 
itisfaction has been expressed that we were 
* go to the Mecklenburg capital — the letters 
lat have been coming in say "everybody is 
bing." Charlotte druggists are making 
aborate preparations to give you a good 
me. The business sessions will be interest- 
ig and helpful. Don't forget that R. P. 
von is in charge of convention details which 
,eans that everything will be perfect. AND 

Magic Gardens 

And speaking of spring Ave want to nien- 
on a most delightful book Ave have just 
bme across entitled "Magic Gardens," by 
; osetta E. Clarkson. We haven't had time 
> finish it but we have been enjoying the 
iapters devoted to "Herbs in the FloAA-er 
arden." The book should be of especial in- 
rest to druggists who raise flowers as a 
>bby, and Ave believe it Avould interest many 
! their Avives. (We remember one year 
ob Roy Copeland brought to the conven- 
on a large bouquet of beautiful floAA-ers 
! had raised.) The author of our book 
iggests: "This spring do plan your garden 
'id borders to include some of the herbs 
'hich mingle so appropriately Avith your 
>wers." Continuing in her enthusiasm for 
■rb gardens Miss Clarkson says : "To con- 
nce one particularly stubborn supporter of 
)wers versus herbs, I went through a recent 
>ok on perennials. I myself became much 
terested in learning how many perennials 
'e today used to some extent in medical 

practice. I found some eighty plants in 
this book listed in a commercial catalogue 
of drugs noAV used in medical formulas. You 
might be interested in a few of these 
plants — hollyhock, English daisy, bachelor's 
button, lily of the valley, bleeding heart, 
sunflower, iris, peony, primrose, violet, fever- 
feAv, crocus, squill, geum, pyrethrum, and 
scabiosa." The sage question is asked: 
"Could we moderns do better than folloAv 
the example of our ancestors in making our 
garden which Avill take on more of real 
charm because of introducing the old-time 

Tulip Time 

We had a delightful visit today from W. 
D. Welch, Jr., who is the proprietor of 
Welch's Drug Store in Washington. It was 
the first visit he had paid the School since 
he graduated in 1928 — you just can't pry 
these easterners aA\ay from the Tidewater 
country. If they can get away from their 
stores in the AA'inter they want to hunt and 
Avhen vacation time rolls around in the 
summer they just have to fish. Mr. Welch 
Avas talking enthusiastically today of the- 
gigantic tulip festival that is held in his 
town every spring. It looks like everywhere 
we turn things keep happening to get 
"spring in our bones." We have always 
wanted to make the trip to that festival and 
after talking to Mr. Welch Ave are more 
anxious than ever — those druggists Avho have 
asked us each year to "come doAvn" had 
better watch out for Ave are liable to accept 
the invitation this time. 

It Was Quite a Treat 

We were in Raleigh a few days ago and 
President Gattis took us out to his Person 
St. Pharmacy, No. 2. We don't know when 
we have enjoyed a v T isit more. The Presi- 
dent and Mr. Wilkins Harden showed us the 
pharmacy from "start to finish" and it was 
a real joy to see the prescription room, the 
lovely fixtures and up-to-date arrangement 
of the pharmacy, the complete and well- 
arranged stockrooms, etc. Of course, our 
orderly soul was greatly impressed with how 
spick and span everything was — it looked 
like the staff had just finished spring clean- 
ing, but we hear from the customers that it 
looks that nice all the time!

ville, was partially destroyed by fire ea 
on the morning of Feb. 3. The members 
the family were awakened barely in ti 
for them to escape from the burning bui

location came only a few days after I 
death of its original owner. As the stc 
moved from Fayetteville Street many peo^ 
recalled that its Fayetteville and Marl 
Sts. location was the site of Mayor Jas.! 
Johnson's Drug Store and in those days v 
a gathering place for politicians. Thr 
steps led up from the street into its ] 
terior. After the Johnson store moved 
the Bland Hotel, Mr. Hicks and Gilbi' 
Crabtree added the Fayetteville and Mar J 
Sts. corner to the Hicks chain of dr> 
stores. Julian White, the present owner ' 
the Wake Drug Store, calls it the "last 
the Mohicans."

Hall's Market Street Drug Store is the 
me of a new pharmacy which opened at 

161 Market St., Wilmington, late in Febru- 
ary. It is owned by J. M. Hall and his son,

C. C. Oates has been continued for the 
year 1939-10 as National Formulary Ee- 
search Fellow at the State University School 
of Pharmacy under an increased research 
grant from the A. Ph. A. Under the guid- 
ance of Dr. H. M. Burlage and a graduate 
committee he is devoting his studies to oral 
bismuth preparations as prophylactic and 
curative agents in connection with syphilis. 
Last year he prepared a Bibliography on the 
subject of bismuth preparations including 
about 900 carefully classified and indexed 
abstracts. He also did considerable chemical

with grateful appreciation the gift from 
W. W. Parker, Jr., of Henderson, of a num- 
ber of old pharmacopoeias and pharmaceuti- 
cal texts from the library of his father,, 
the late W. W. Parker. The School is also 
grateful to T. G. Crutchfield, of Greens- 
boro, for a set of old balances. 

A letter from J. Floyd Goodrich of the 
B.C. Company tells us that he is spending 
some time in Florida on a business trip and 
is accompanied by Mrs. Goodrich. They are 
enjoying the sunny climate of the southern 
state greatly. A few days ago they visited 
Dave Shreve and his family in St. Peters- 
burg and were delighted to hear Dave say 
"he is feeling pretty good." Dave and Floyd 
had a fishing trip but the letter did not say 
anything about the luck they had.

We understand that the Justus Pharmacy, 
of Hendersonville, was greatly damaged by 
fire on the night of February 10. We have 
not been able to learn the particulars. 

The Journal extends sympathy to Miss 
Josephine Eldridge, of Carrboro, in the 
death of her father, Jas. Eldridge, which 
occurred on February 5 following a long 
illness. Mr. Eldridge was a student of phar- 
macy 1904-05 but had later majored in 
education and held the degree of Ph.D. from 
the University. He had been connected with 
the university library for some time. 

Dr. H. R. Totten, of the Department of 
Botany, addressed the Student Branch of 
the N.C.P.A. at the State University on the 
evening of February 22. His lecture was 
an illustrated one on "The Trees of the 
Chapel Hill Eegion that Have Been Used 
in Pharmacy." 

S. P. Birkitt, of Jas. P. Stowe and Co. 
of Charlotte, has applied for associate mem- 
bership in the State Association. 

The Economy Drug Store, located on the 
corner of Main Street and Fifth Avenue, 
Hendersonville, has been sold by R. G. 
Scruggs to Charles W. Hunter and Richard 
Watson. Mr. Watson has announced that 
the pharmacy would be continued under the 
same name and that no changes would be 
made in its policy at the present time. Mr. 
Watson graduated in pharmacy at the state 
university in 1924, passing the state board 
examinations the same year. He is a for- 
mer resident of Tryon and lived in Texas 
for some time. He has been in Henderson- 
ville for the past two years with the above 
mentioned store. His partner, Mr. Hunter, 
is the son of the late F. V. Hunter, who 
owned and operated Hunter's Pharmacy in 
Hendersonville for many years in the same 
location now occupied by the Economy Drug 

The annual stockholders and directors 
meeting of the American Druggists Fire In- 
surance Co. was held in Cincinnati on Feb. 
12. The annual report of the company con- 
veyed the somewhat surprising fact that dur- 
ing 1939 it had experienced 603 drug store 
fire losses, "which would fairly indicate that 
there had been over 1,500 large and small 

drug store fires in the country through| 
the year." P. J. Suttlemyre was re-eleq 
as a director of the company. The meet 
lasted over a period of three days. 

Announcement is made by Chairman D. 
Miller of the National First Aid Commitl 
in the Feb. 15 N. A. B. D. Journal t 
druggists are invited to participate in 
second annual National First Aid W< 
window display contest, this year. Natioi 
First Aid Week will be observed May 19- 
Rules for the contest will be similar to th 
of last year — 'druggists are urged to inst 
First Aid displays, photograph them a 
submit the photographs to their state as

test. N. A. B. D. Journal. 

President and Mrs. Phil D. Gattis, acco'

delightful two-weeks motor trip to Florh 
We saw the Gattises shortly before they 1<* 
and they told us that they were "just gov 
to head toward Florida and make stops

ideal way to enjoy a vacation! 

Announcement was made on Feb. 22 th 
the center store location in the Southeaste 
building, in Greensboro, now undergoi'

n't Be Impatient With Fair Trade 

if you think conditions under Fair Trade 
bad — just ask one of your brother drug- 
s in one of the non-Fair Trade states 
t he thinks about the situation, and 
ther or not he would like to work under 
i laws," says Secretary John W. Dar- 
el of the N. A. R. D. in a signed edi- 
al in the Journal of Feb. 15. "Have 

stopped to think where you would be 
b these laws to be repealed tomorrow? I 
j predict that if ever such a calamity 
R to pass, the conditions previous to 
r Trade will pale into insignificance be- 
• the Roman holiday of price warring 

we shall experience." 
R Da r gavel's comments are made in 
ning druggists not to tear down the 
I Trade structure that they have built so 
iiriously over a period of a quarter of a 
ury merely because all of the thousands 
djustments cannot be made within a few 
t months. Give Fair Trade three to 
years more, the Secretary predicts, and 
ill have been accepted generally, opposi- 

will have died out and conditions will 
far better than today. "But to attempt 

action; to attempt methods which might 
nisconstrued in some quarters will bring 
eral condemnation and disaster just as 
are beginning to gain some favorable 
gnition. It took years of our combined, 
rdinated efforts to win Fair Trade. We 

keep it and improve it by exercising 

same methods." 

"Uncle George" Honored 

i the Greensboro Daily News for Feb. 11 
he section entitled, "Among Our Neigh- 
I there was a most delightful article 
at "Uncle George" Pilkington, of Pitts- 
Accompanying the news story was a 
ndid picture of the popular druggist 
i his dog, Rex. The article tells some- 
g of Mr. Pilkington's early years in 
land, of how he came to this country 
iecome a farmer, but how in a short time 
resumed the practice of pharmacy for 
2h he had been trained at Westminster 
ege in Yorkshire. Not interested in 
tics the pharmacist "has an abiding 
h in the tenets of the Masonic order in 
h he has held membership for more than 
: a century and in the Episcopal church 
which he is a warden." Pharmacist 

friends were greatly pleased with this gra- 
cious tribute to a popular pharmacist. 


Announcement has been, made of the 
marriage of Miss Josephine Catherine Pal- 
mer, of Cleveland, and Van Devander Wells, 
Jr., of Ealeigh, on Dec. 26 at the Church 
of the Sacred Heart. Mr. Wells was licensed 
as a pharmacist in this State in 1939 and 
is now associated with Eckerd's Drug Store

Au Revoir 

As announced last month the Executive Committee has appointed Professor I. W. 
se as temporary managing editor of this Journal to replace this writer who will 

on leave of absence from the University during the Spring and Summer and who 
due to depart March 17. This, therefore, is a sort of farewell message to those 
iders who may now and then have thumbed through the editorial pages with a 
p occasionally to consider some of the points of view expressed. 

It seems a long time ago that this Journal was set upon its way. During the 
k*iod since that time toes have been stepped upon but never with malice. Compli- 
Ints that have been paid have been inspired by simple sincerity. Opinions have 

n expressed that perhaps too often have represented only a personal point of view, 
metimes the work of managing editor has been a source of keen satisfaction; 
netimes there has been a sense of unfitness and of futility. The modest successes 
it have been made provide happy memories; the failures had best be left undis- 
5sed. Other pens will now begin where this one stops. May these pages come 
ve with interest and profit to those for whom this section is primarily intended — 
i pharmacists of North Carolina. 

For many years now two dates in each month have been fateful: the Fourteenth, 
ich is Press Day; and the Twentieth, which is Proof Day. The whole material for 
3h issue must first be made ready for the printers, and then, when it is in cold 
3e, it must be exactly adjusted so that the final product is divisible by four. To 
btrate : If perchance the total comes to thirty-four pages, either of two courses 
compulsory — cut down to thirty-two or else build up to thirty-six since the whole 
oduct must be in four-page units. To pull or pad becomes a burning question. 

the former, what shall be omitted or how may abrupt endings be avoided or vital 
tters be retained 1 ? If the latter, what can be discussed or described or reported 
tt will amount to about 1,600 words? Try reaching into thin air sometime and 
Uing down 1,600 words, but do it quickly or you will not appreciate what is meant 
re. It is not an easy sort of thing to do. The temptation to let some utterly blank 
ges be inserted is occasionally hard to resist. The job, however, is finally, somehow 
npleted and a recess comes, but not for long. Another month and another follow 
I the same old grind is renewed. 

April 14 (Press Day) and April 20 (Proof Day) will soon be here. When they 
:"ive this tired writer hopes to say with relief "Well, what about 'em; what about 
l?" But habit is hard to break. It may be that the urge to write will be stronger 

en the compulsion of doing so is removed. If this urge is keen and there seems 
nething to say worth saying, it may well happen that we will once again be among 
)se present. Instead, therefore, of saying goodbye, may we not substitute the 
le printed at the top of this farewell piece and say instead — Au Revoir. — J. G.

Dues Must Earn Dividends 

By Mrs. C. B. Miuler 
Secretary Kansas Pharmaceutical Association 

(We invited Mrs. Miller to contribute a guest 
editorial for this month and her contribution 
follows. She is serving this year as President 
of the National Conference of Pharmaceutical As- 
sociation Secretaries. We wish that you could 
know Mrs. Miller. Gracious, a fluent speaker 
who says much in a few words, she knows what 
Pharmacy in Kansas needs, and if it can be 
got she gets it. — Editor.) 

If we have one hobby we ride in Kansas 
it is this matter of organisation. For 
we have tried both ways in our druggists' 
group — first, being half-heartedly joined to- 
gether for brotherly love and swell conven- 
tions ; and second, being all tied up into 
a representative working body which gets 
things done. We like the second plan best! 

We can look back, just a few years ago, 
to the time when we would send out a com- 
plaint and get not even a penny postal from 
the offending company, in spite of the 
better than 900 drug stores in the state. 
Now with 90 per cent of the druggists paid 
members in our Association, we really get 
some attention from manufacturers, job- 
bers, and other trade associations and legis- 

Just how did we build our membership 
from 30 per cent to 90 in three years' time? 
Well, that's what I thought might be of 
the most interest in this informal editorial 
which Secretary Beard has been kind enough 
to invite me to contribute. 

There isn't any hokus-pokus about it. 
Any Association which is willing to put 
head-work and foot-work together, can do 
it. It helps if you have a widely read maga- 
zine. Our little monthly KPA News may 
bring a smile because of its "country print- 
ing"; but we know it is 100% read. We 
keep it folksy and newsy; we talk about 
our own problems, and bring the druggists, 
through its pages, a resume of national 
matters which they do not take time to 

Perhaps the secret of our organization is 
that we put everybody to work on a four- 
sided program of activity: membership, 
finance, legislation and inter-professional 
relations. We decentralize our activities so 

that druggists in our three major cities j 
not have any more say-so about things tli 
the village druggist in a remote corner 
the state. 

1. We use the Captain Plan with 
state set-up in its 105 counties with a I 
tain from the Association membership 
each county. Around him all activity ci 
ters. Through him we can make one let 
or one wire reach all the druggists, 
selects a membership chairman who he 
him in dues collection and telephoning 
all-county meetings. 

2. At our Annual Captains' Breakf; 
the final morning of the Convention, we 
the year's activity program before the m< 

3. Right after the Convention, in Mai 
the Secretary loads up the "Chewy" I 
charts, maps and mimeographed mate; 
for every druggist, and covers the state thI 
county meetings. Every druggist recei 
(a) the President's address for the 1 
just closed; (b) the convention Resolutio 
and (c) the itemized bills which the As> 
eiation is seeking or opposing in the com 

4. Druggists tuck this list of sought 
adverse legislation in their desks. It 1 
their "ace-in-the-hole" when candidates 
the state legislature come in to pass 
campaign cards and seek votes in the Aug) 
primaries. Druggists can assure these woii 
be legislators of support provided they 
right on these bills. 

5. Above our Captains are SupervisL' 
one for each Congressional district, the 
largest districts having co-supervisors. Th 
men often travel with the Secretary, mak 
county meetings and calling on individ 
druggists in between. 

6. We sold our druggists a jump in d 
from $5 to $12 for the basic store, ri 
in the depths of the depression. We l

I". We win the ground we do, with legis- 
lors, boards, our own membership, and 
ii manufacturers, because we are not pan- 
(judlers and high-pressure boys, but are 
Icere members of a profession which is 
tf-ing to better its own membership. We 
per boycott; we urge cooperation. There 
1 for example, nothing hotter in some sec- 
ins than the wage and hour controversy. 
E have been invited to speak at a forth- 
lining State Labor meeting here, in order, 
I the Commissioner explained, that his 
jople might not be one-sided on this ques- 
fcn, and might see both the employer and 
I employee points of view. 
[We have been invited also to assist in 
fcvriting the Kansas State Board of Health 
lies and regulations, especially as concerns 
1 handling of drugs and pharmaceuticals. 

We work to develop all possible leadership 
the counties. Our Executive Committee 

I our officers come right up through the 

airs. The Kansas Association is a demoe- 

cy; if we have any success, that is why. 

Old Mose was running for dear life, with 
funnel-shaped cloud of bees following 


i"Why, Mose," a friend shouted after him, 
big man like you wouldn't be afraid of 

little bee, would you?" 

"No sah, no sab," he shouted back, "Ah 

o' could lick one little bee, yes sah! But, 

ss, dat bunch am organized!" 

An Important Proposal by the 
Executive Committee 

At a meeting several months ago the 
xecutive Committee decided to recommend 

the Charlotte convention that the fiscal 
ar of the Association be changed to con- 
rm with the calendar year. At present the 
ical year begins June 1 and ends May 31 

the following year. 

The advantages of using the calendar year 
ay briefly be summarized as follows: 

1. This plan is the usual one for firms, 
rporations, all national associations and 
veral state associations. 

2. The Association hereafter will cease 
suing the large costly certificates of meni- 
a rship that are seldom framed or displayed 

but will instead issue annually to every 
dues-paid member a certificate about the 
size of the Board's annual renewal license. 
This can either be framed, or posted un- 
framed at some conspicuous point in the 
store without taking up much space. An 
important feature of such a certificate is 
to indicate prominently the period during 
which a member is in good standing. At 
present this period would either have to read 
1940-1941, or else June 1, 1940 to May 31, 
1941. If the first were used it could be 
interpreted as the whole of 1940 and 1941 
rather than 12 months. If the second were 
used the amount of space necessary for 
printing prominently the period covered by 
the certificate would be unduly great. If, 
however, the fiscal year followed the calen- 
dar year, it would be necessary only to 
print in bold red type the numerals 1940. 

3. Most of the annual meetings are now 
held in May. (This must be the date for 
all inland conventions because of the heat 
of later months.) Under the proposed plan 
bills for dues would be mailed January 1st 
which would allow members almost five 
months to remit and be in good standing 
at the convention. 

4. Bookkeeping would be greatly simpli- 
fied if the calendar year were adopted. 

5. Confusion often results under the 
present plan. A surprising number of mem- 
bers who on June 1st receive bills for dues 
marked let us say 1940-41, and who remit 
will often get the impression later on that 
they have paid for 1941 whereas they 
actually have paid for only the first half 
of the latter year. If, however, they are 
billed for 1941 and pay they will easily 
remember the period covered. 

This writer who has acted as Treasurer 
for many years endorses the proposal of 
the Committee and recommends its accept- 
ance at the Charlotte convention. Under its 
terms members owing dues (always payable 
in advance) on June 1st could do either of 
two things: 1. Pay for the six months 
terminating January 1st, or 2. pay for a 
year and a half and be in good standing 
for the following 18 months. 

This question is more important than it 
may seem and we hope that it will be given 
serious consideration by members.

Miracle Medicine 

Some time ago we were asked to analyze 
a medicine for a layman. We are reproduc- 
ing below the exact language and spelling 
of the letter not to show up the person, 
for his name is withheld, nor to make fun 
of his lack of education, but because what 
he says shows what easy victims many 
laymen are to peddlers of "patent" medi- 
cines. No matter how dangerous the drugs 
sold may be, no matter if their sales talk 
would sound ridiculous to a doctor or drug- 
gist, they are quite successful in peddling 
their stuff about and then in many instances 
disappear leaving no trace behind. Over 
the years we have had many such requests 
as the above from laymen. We always de- 
cline to make the analysis. 

"Dear Sir: 

"What will you charge me for anlysng a 
stomach medicine that has two powders and 
one liquid in it. Or I think that is all. 

"The reason that I'm seek such., Some 
time ago a man was stopping with us, and 
my stomach has give me trouble for years. 
And all medicines that I have taken dident 
seem to do any good. So I was telling him 
about it. And he said that he had cured 
himself. And would fix me some if I would 
take it. Well I thought that it would be 
like all the rest wouldent do any good. And 
dident ask where that he lived or get his 
address. So he is gone and the medicine 
has helped me more than any other. And 
he went to the drug store and got the 
things that he made it out of. And I ask 
them all they don't rmember such a man 

as they say they have hundreds weeklei 
So I have some of the medicine left ai 
that is the onley way that I can get mo 
is to find out what is in it. 

"I have a friend in Tamps, Fla. Thj 
does that kind of work but he want 
much for that, I think. 

"So let me know your price. That is tl 
chief thing. 

"Will be mighty delectable for what y< 
may do." 

What Is Your Overhead? 

Not long ago a druggist asserted that h 
annual gross sales were about $30,000 ai 
that overhead cost him somewhat more thg 
$10,000 annually not counting his o^ 
salary! This statement stunned us. Mo: 
than one third of sales went to cover ope 
ating costs and this figure did not incluc 
anything for the owner-manager! Beir 
curious we began asking about the percen 
age cost of doing business of five othl 
druggists. The answers we received range 
from a low of seventeen to the high figuj 
cited above. These great differences set I 
this query: "How many of the six actual^ 
knew what they were talking about?" Tj 
be successful a retail pharmacist should ket, 
a correct even if simple set of books. B 
should buy wisely and sell profitably. Son, 
fail in one or more of these three neede 
attributes and yet stay in business. T( 
often, however, they sooner or later are i 
business for the other fellow's health.

(The following lines about his home and environment were written by a young naval officer "Som 
where in the Pacific." — Editor.) 

Nestled in the grasses of a meadow far away 

A ruffled brownish timid bird is sitting on the ground. 
Take me not to see her in the broadest light of day 

Nor even during twilight when she makes her sweetest sound. 
Never was I closer than a rooster's call to her, 

And so there's charming mystery about her life and song. 
One prosaic glimpse of her, too much afraid to stir, 

Might shatter all that magic charm I've known and loved so long. 
Would that I might always, though, when evening shadows close 

Return to where a red-roofed house and oaks adorn a hill, 
Where crickets, frogs, and chigoes live as Mother Nature chose 

And out of darkest night there calls my magic wliippoorwill.

Burdensome Prescription Inventories 

By H. C. McAllister 

One of the most perplexing problems with 
lich the pharmacists of all parts of our 
state are faced is that 
of familiarizing them- 
selves with the numer- 
ous new preparations 
being placed on the 
market. Aside from 
being conversant with 
these products, the fi- 
nancial burden of 
stocking them is be- 
coming increasingly 
ffficult. The past six-months period seems 
f have brought the situation to the point 
/ being acute. Many pharmacists are at a 
hs to know what course to take because 
fcse products are being detailed to the 
I'ysicians by the manufacturers before the 
lual source of supply makes them available 
br distribution. The delay involved is irri- 
jting to the patient, the physician and the 

: The frequency with which these eom- 
jiints are heard makes it appear that some 
|?ps should be taken to correct this un- 
ijcessary delay in supplying medication and 
I reduce its cost, since this has been a fur- 
pr objection. Not only are these prepara- 
Ins expensive when bought, but many are 
'opular for a day'' and then forgotten, 
living the pharmacist witli unused stocks 
I hand. These stocks represent losses since 
1 pharmacist has no method for their 

In seeking a remedy for the relief of 
l?se conditions the question naturally 
^ses, "Are these preparations necessary for 
1} efficient treatment of disease?" A re- 
"w of the formulae of the preparations 
i roduced during the last year reveals that 
lae products do not in all cases represent 
iw agents in the treatment of disease. 
I)st of them represent different combina- 
l|ns of agents already established, or, are 
ur duplications of other preparations by 

different manufacturers. It cannot be said 
that all of these products may be looked 
upon as basic advances in therapy or in 
mode of administration. Therefore, some are 
not only unnecessary but undesirable from 
the point of view of the patient, the physi- 
cian and the pharmacist due to the added 
cost involved in their distribution and the 
difficulty experienced in obtaining these 

Let it not be inferred from the foregoing 
statements that Ave are opposed to advances 
being made in therapeutics. Bather, we are 
wholeheartedly in support of progress and 
anxious to do our part in furthering it. But 
do these myriads of unnecessary agents not 
"fog" the atmosphere and prevent the ready 
acceptance of agents deserving a place of 
importance ? Has the unrestricted competi- 
tion among many manufacturers to secure 
distribution of these various different com- 
binations of established drugs and of dupli- 
cated products not caused the pharmacist to 
lose some of his confidence in the high pur- 
pose of these manufacturers? Are these 
things to the interest of the public health? 
Could it not be that such conditions are in 
some measure responsible for the Federal 
Government's interest in a method of ren- 
dering a less expensive and more efficient 
health service? 

The part to be played by the retail phar- 
macist in the correction of these conditions 
should be determined and proper steps taken 
to get a program under way. We are sure 
that every retail pharmacist in the state has 
first-hand information on this subject and 
we wish that he would make available the 
benefits of his experience. A discussion of 
several measures, which have been proposed 
or are being tried in other localities will fol- 
low in a later issue of the Journal. It is 
our hope that sufficient interest will be 
shown in this subject so that an effort will 
be made at the coming convention to estab- 
lish some kind of an organization for the 
working out of this problem.

Sale of Certain Drugs Under 
New Drug Law 

First, Barbiturates. All derivatives of 
irbiturie Acid such as Amytal, pheno- 
jrbital, Luminal, etc., may be sold as 
retofore, e.g., in accordance with the pro- 
sions of the North Carolina Hypnotic 
iw, provided the statement ' ' Warning — 
ay be habit forming" is written, printed, 

stamped upon the label of the package 

which sold. 

These items may be sold, of course, upon 
lysician 's prescriptions, and obviously 
ay be refilled. In such cases, however, the 
be! must likewise bear the statement 
Warning — May be habit forming ' ' unless 
ich prescription bears the wording "Not 
tillable, ' ' or some similar designation to 
te effect that such prescription may not 
refilled. In this event, the warning, re- 
ared to above, is not required to be placed 
1 the label. 

Second, Aminopyrine, Cinchophen, Neo- 
nehophen, Sulfanilamide and all their de- 
vatives may be sold only upon physician 's 
inscription and may not be refilled. 

Third, Dinitrophenol and Dinitrocresol 

ay not be sold in any case, not even pur- 
iiant to physician 's prescriptions, 
i All products dispensed from the original 
ackage of the manufacturer should be 

beled in accordance with the labeling pro- 
isions of the new Drug Act. (See Janu- 
ry issue of Journal.) 

Supplementary Rubbing Alcohol 

Under the provisions of the new Rubbing 
Jcohol Regulation, promulgated January 
8th and effective February 18th, 1940, no 
rovision whatever was made for the sale 

of Rubbing Alcohol Compound by any per- 
son other than a licensed pharmacist, who 
was required, at the time of sale, "To 
write or stamp across the brand label in 
contrasting colors 'Sold by' followed by 
his name and the address of the retail drug 
store where the sale was made." 

In last month 's issue of the Journal this 
Section carried an article explaining some- 
what in detail the application of the pro- 
visions of this new regulation. It was 
pointed out and emphasized that while as- 
sistant pharmacist and physician operated 
drug stores were not entitled to sell Rub- 
bing Alcohol Compounds, at the same time 
it was believed that the Alcohol Tax Unit 
would make provision for its sale by both 
the assistant pharmacist and permitted phy- 

Both of these questions arose immediately 
after the Rubbing Alcohol Compound Regu- 
lation was promulgated and was submitted 
to the Commissioner of Internal Revenue 
through Mr. Rowland Jones, Washington 
Representative of the N. A. R, D., Wash- 
ington, D. C, who obtained the ruling which 

"Since Treasury Decision 4963 specifically pro- 
vides that sales at retail must be made through 
a registered pharmacist, any person desiring to 
make sales at retail drug stores must meet the 
requirement of a 'registered pharmacist.' A phy- 
sician, empowered by the laws of the state in 
which he practices to compound prescriptions or 
otherwise perform the functions of a registered 
pharmacist, will be considered to be a registered 
pharmacist within the purview of the regula- 

"Therefore, if a physician, duly licensed by 
the state in which he practices, conducts a retail 
drug store, compounds prescriptions, and per- 
forms all the functions generally attributed to a 
registered pharmacist, he meets all the funda- 
mental requirements of the treasury decision. 

"Accordingly, this office sees no reason why he 
should not sell rubbing alcohol compound, pro- 
vided that, at the time of sale, he writes or stamps 
across the brand label in contrasting colors the 
words 'Sold by' followed by his name and the 
address of his retail drug store. 

"A practicing physician authorized by the laws 
of the state in which he is duly licensed to com- 
pound prescriptions, to dispense drugs and to 
perform all the functions generally attributed to 
a registered pharmacist, may be considered to be 
a retail druggist and a registered pharmacist 
within the purview of the regulation. Therefore, 
he may make sales of rubbing alcohol compound, 
provided that, at the time of sale, he writes or 
stamps across the brand label in contrasting colors

Busy Weeks Ahead 

The pharmaceutical calendar has many 
' ' red letter clays ' ' in the weeks ahead. 
First of all there is the meeting of the 
American Pharmaceutical Association in 
Richmond, Va., May 6-11. Nearly every day 
we have a letter from some Virginia friend 
and each convinces us that the meeting is 
going to be one of the most interesting and 
profitable in the history of the A. Ph. A. 
President Gattis has appointed the follow- 
ing as delegates from the N.C.P.A.: C. C. 
Fordham, Jr., Greensboro, Chairman; A. C. 
Cecil, High Point ; Jos. Hollingsworth, 
Mount Airy ; P. J. Suttlemyre, Hickory ; 
and C. E. Whitehead, Ramseur. 

Then on May 14-15 there will be the 
U. S. Pharmacopoeial Convention in Wash- 
ington. The following have been selected as 
the delegates from the Association to this 
important meeting: I. T. Reamer, Durham; 
Warren W. Home, Fayetteville ; and John 
A. Goode, Asheville. The alternates are 
C. C. Fordham, Jr.; Carl T. Durham, Chapel 
Hill ; and Ralph P. Rogers, Durham. 

And then we must put down in the big- 
gest and boldest type of all our own As- 
sociation meeting in Charlotte on May 
21-22-23. Have you made your reservation 
yet? You had better attend to this detail 
at once for every indication points to a 
tremendous crowd and a splendid conven- 
tion. President Gattis has been over to our 
offices several times outlining his plans for 
the program — there are several surprises in 
store for you. 

National First Aid Week 
And while we are talking about impor- 
tant dates we should mention National First 
Aid Week on May 19-25. After the long- 
dreary winter everybody is going to wel- 
come the opportunity to spend as much time 
as possible outdoors. We are outdoor con- 
scious already and are thinking "of auto 
rides, picnics, vacations, swimming parties 
and every other refreshing activity that 
makes summer a season of freedom." "Will 
our public remember to pack a first aid kit 
in the family auto, just to be ready for 
those outdoor scratches and bruises that 
may lead to expensive infections? There is 
also the preparedness personified by a home 
medicine cabinet well stocked with first aid 
materials. For the druggists of the nation, 

National First Aid Week should be a tii 
for making the public preparedness c( 
scious. This year the Federal Wholesj 
Druggists ' Association is offering a beau 
ful trophy to the druggist who prepai 
the best window of first aid materials di 
ing National First Aid Week. Not only c 
the druggist stimulate public interest 
first aid through window displays in 1 
own store, but he can also do much to pfl 
licize first aid needs and knowledge throuj 
his local newspapers, radio station ai 
community groups. To help materially 
this respect, the N.A.R.D. is preparing I 
Activity Kit, consisting of articles, tal 1 
for radio, club and luncheon gathering 
spot radio announcements, a man-on-tW 
street script, touching upon all the aspee! 
of first aid preparedness. The Activity K 
is available by writing to the N.A.R.D., 2d 
West Wacker Drive, Chicago." 

A Word to the Wise 
A reporter recently sent us a number 
items of interest for this column and pleas<j 
us a great deal by saying, ' ' I will make 
special effort to send you news from nq 
on. I well realize how difficult it is for y(; 
in Chapel Hill to collect all the news, paj 
ticularly if we pharmacists don 't co-operat; 
If the news isn 't in the Journal we ha 1 
no one to blame but ourselves. ' ' We ( 
wish many of our readers would think aboi 
this paragraph and then try to help us toe

ey had spent the Easter holidays with 

Mr. and Mrs. A. L. Fishel, Professor and 
Mrs. I. W. Rose suffered painful injuries on 
the late afternoon of March 2-4 when their 
car was struck by another automobile on 
the edge of Burlington. Their son, Win- 
field, who accompanied them, escaped with- 
out injury. Professor Rose received minor 
bruises but was able to return to Chapel 
Hill almost immediately. Mrs. Rose was 
taken to the Alamance General Hospital 
where her collar bone, several ribs, and pel- 
vis bone were found to be fractured. Latest 
reports are to the effect that she is resting 
comfortably. The car was pretty badly 
torn up. 


Elmer Otis Edgerton, aged 57, proprietor 
of Edgerton's Drug Store, in Raleigh, died 
at Rex Hospital on March 5 after a week's 
illness. A native of Smithfield, he had been 
connected with Raleigh drug stores for sev- 
eral years. He is survived by his widow, 
formerly Miss Susie Ives, of Smithfield, and 
several children. 

Druggists all over the state were shocked 
to learn of the death on Feb. 29 of Walter 
Scott, Sr., greatly beloved citizen of Char- 
lotte and president of the Scott Drug Co. 
He died in a Charlotte hospital following an 
illness of only two days. As head of one 
of the largest wholesale drug companies in 
this section he had endeared himself to drug- 
gists all over the state. He had become as- 
sociated with the Scott Drug Co. two years 
after its founding fifty years ago by his 
brother, John M. Scott. He had also taken 
a prominent part in the business and reli- 
gious life of the Queen City. He was greatly 
interested in the State University School of 
Pharmacy and through him the Scott Drug 
Co. Scholarship was established at the insti- 
tution for needy students of pharmacy. Stu- 
dents of the University join the Journal 
and the State Association in extending sin- 
eerest sympathy to the family of Mr. Scott. 
We remember him most pleasantly at the 
last Association meeting in Charlotte — the 
interest he took in making the convention a 
success and in his role as one of the local 
hosts how much he contributed to the pleas- 
ure of the visiting pharmacists.

nation has met in Charlotte. It first 
med there in 1884 with L. E. Wriston 
oeal Secretary. Again it met in the 
a City in 1898 with W. H. Wearn in 
\e of local arrangements; and in 1910 
J. P. Woodall as Local Secretary. In 
E. K. Blair handled convention ar- 

rangements while in 1933 J. P. Stowe was 
Local Secretary. This year E. P. Lyon car- 
ries on the fine work of his predecessors. 

The following Charlotte pharmacists have 
served as president of the X.C.P.A.: W. H. 
Wearn in 1891-1892; E. H. Jordan, 1900-01 ; 
J. P. Stowe, 1924-25; and E. F. Eimmer, 
1934-35. (T. A. Walker was elected for the 
year 1931-32 but resigned.) Messrs. Wearn 
and Stowe also served as members of the 
Board of Pharmacy and another Charlotte 
pharmacist, J. A. Henderson, was an ex- 
aminer 1925-2(3. Then we should mention 
G. E. Burwell who was treasurer 1909-1917. 

When we thumb through the Proceedings 
of yesteryears we come across name after 
name of Charlotte personages who have con- 
tributed a constructive part in the Associa- 
tion's advancement. We should like to list 
here such leaders but a fear of omitting 
some name prevents us. We are all glad 
that we are meeting again in the Queen 
City. We are looking forward to the seri- 
ous part of the convention; to the many 
pleasurable entertainment features that have 
been arranged for our enjoyment; and to 
renewing friendships with the Charlotte 
people who have made the conventions 
through the years such delightful occasions.

By Alice Noble 

Our Convention City 
Charlotte's beginning was in Colonial 
is, and its traditions are associated with 
earliest aspirations for American inde- 
lence. Its aspect today is of a busy 
of the New South. It typifies the in- 
rialization of the Carolina Piedmont 
1 which it draws much of its life and 
e. The business streets present a busy, 
■moving tempo, as the city is the trad- 
center of a wide area in two States with 
ipulation of a half -million people." 

For Your Information 
■FORMATION about all points of in- 
1 — in fact everything a visitor may 
t to know — may be obtained from the 
nber of Commerce, 123 W. 4th St., or 
i A. L. Beehtold, who has a desk in the 
1 of the Hotel Charlotte. 
iVXIS: Cruisers, 10c, baggage extra; 
on call, four passengers 25c within 

:TY BUSES: Fare, 7c; meet on Inde- 
lence Square. 

[ndependence Square ; 30 min. parking 
owntown section; other regulations in- 
ted by signs. 

The Thrill of the Convention 
n't it funny how each year as conven- 

time comes around you have an inde- 
lable thrill? I have been going to the 
ings for many a year but I am looking 
fard to this one just as excitedly as I 
the first one when I was scared to death 

I wasn't a good enough stenographer 
•eport a convention accurately. The 
ght of seeing so many old friends and 
ring new ones is a pleasant one, the 
less sessions are always interesting, and 
entertainment program is so full of de- 
ful affairs that anyone would be will- 
to ' ' walk more than a mile " to be on 
We hope everybody will be there! 

Reports to Be Summarized 
a recent meeting of the Executive 
mittee it was decided that all reports 
to be summarized instead of presented 
etail. Of course, the complete reports 
be printed in the Proceedings. The plan 
not only allow the Association to get a 

clear idea of the activities of each com- 
mittee during the year, but it will leave 
more time for the discussion of other mat- 
ters of vital concern to the Association. 

President and Secretary 
At the close of the 1920 Association meet- 
ing in Charlotte, First Vice-President I. W. 
Eose was elevated to the presidency. This 
year he will serve as Secretary-Treasurer. 
We are hoping that Mrs. Rose will have 
recovered sufficiently from her recent auto- 
mobile accident to be able to go to Char- 
lotte with him. She is rapidly recovering 
but is still confined to her room. 

Turner Currens to Be with Us! 
As our old friend Turner Currens, of the 
House of Norwich, was busy cleaning up 
his desk to sail for a four- or five-weeks 
trip to South America the other day he took 
time to write us that he hoped to be with 
us at the convention. He will not get back 
to New York until May 11, but he assures 
us that he will let nothing stand in the 
way of his attendance in Charlotte. We 
are counting strongly on him — it has been 
several years since he signed the registra- 
tion book — too long in fact and we are 
looking forward to having him with us this 
time, and to his taking part in the discus- 
sions of the business sessions. He has been 
devoting a great deal of time recently to 
the study of the subject of "Vitamins," 
which he considers "the biggest single 
thing in the retail drug business today. ' ' 
We shall look forward to hearing what he 
has to say on the subject. 

We'll Miss You an Awful Lot! 
We cannot end this page without saying 
how much we are going to miss Dean J. G. 
Beard at the convention. For nineteen years 
(plus two summers) I have been connected 
with his office and I know how much the 
Association has meant to him as well as the 
long and devoted service he has given to his 
profession. And so I hope I may have the 
privilege of joining his many friends among 
the druggists of the State in expressing re- 
gret that he will be unable to attend the 
meeting this year and the hope that he may 
derive much pleasure and benefit from his 
leave of absence.

A Word to the Men 

ir Druggist : 

lave you given thought to what your 
e gets from the convention — to what the 
men's Auxiliary as a body has to do 
h the convention ? Suppose for a moment 
wives attend — that there was no Wo- 
fl's Auxiliary. Do you think the con- 
tion could have grown to be the largest 
ended in the State without the women's 
operation? Would you be so keen to go 

each year if it was a stag affair? After 
all, the women are there to promote the in- 
terests of your profession. Give them a 
break — a few days diversion — and let them 
meet the helpmates of others in the same 
predicament you are in. The Auxiliary 
needs the support of all "Pharmacettes." 
Help us to help you by bringing your wife 
to Charlotte for the Convention!

Burdensome Prescription Inventories 1 

Bv H. C. McAllister 

In the April issue of the Journal we dis- 
cussed the problem of stocking and supply- 
ing the many new pharmaceutical specialties 
which are "flooding" the market at present. 
We also expressed the hope that the interest 
of the pharmacist might be crystalized to 
the point of finding expression at the annual 
convention of the N. C. P. A. 

In pursuing this subject further it is our 
purpose to mention several plans for the 
solution of this problem which have enjoyed 
varying degrees of effectiveness in other 

The success of these pharmaceutical 
specialties has been due primarily to four 

1. Convenience of prescribing for the phy- 

2. Lack of training on the part of the 
physician to write prescriptions for the type 
of medication he desires. 

3. Intensive "detailing" of physicians by 
representatives of pharmaceutical manufac- 

4. Lack of uniformity of compounded pre- 

There are no doubt other contributing 
factors, but the four mentioned are most 
important. Many readers will probably take 
issue with us on No. 4, but we have investi- 
gated this point and have found grounds 
for objection. Any program designed to 
effect a change in the type of medicinals 
distributed must consider this phase of the 

As was mentioned in our preceding dis- 
cussion, we do not oppose any contribution 
made through the introduction of more ef- 
fective agents or more effective efficient 
methods of administration. Our objection 
is to the introduction of unnecessary combi- 
nations of established drugs and the dupli- 
cation of these or other new agents already 
introduced by some other company (usually 
one who has expended large sums for in- 
vestigative work). The items that make up 
this classification cause the greatest amount

these unnecessary preparations reveals 
they are similar in many respects to

explanation of why they are used so ex

be successful. There have been sevi 
methods proposed to meet these requ

successes commensurate with the efforts , 
pended in their behalf. 

The American Medical Association 
realized the need for such a program 
with the co-operation of the American Pll 
maceutical Association has had it u| 
way for several years. However, few 
tail pharmacists have made it available 
their localities. An outline of this progi 
is as follows : 

1. Every other week there appears in 
Journal of the A. M. A. an article on ' 
treatment of some type of condition, such 
"Upper Eespiratory Infections," by a ree 
nized authority, and prescriptions are s 

2. Reprints of these articles are avail 
to the retail pharmacists through the A

physicians by the pharmacists with samj 
of the compounded prescriptions, if desiri

An Apology 

In the April issue of the Joubxal we 
carried an account of the visit of a large 
party, composed mostly of students of phar- 
macy at the State University, to the labora- 
tories of Parke, Davis and Co. in Detroit. 
We failed to mention, however, one of the 
very nicest features of the trip. B. F. 
Page, of the W. H. King Drug Co., of 
Raleigh, with his usual generosity, sent a 
cheek to the University authorities to take 
care of the meals of the students on the 
journey. While in Detroit they were guests 
of Parke, Davis. This financial assistance 
of Mr. Page made it possible for many of 
the group to take the trip and we are very 
sorry indeed that we failed to mention his 
thoughtfulness in our previous issue.

Jr., of Garland and Wilmington, in the 
First Baptist church on the evening of 
April 27. Mr. Warren is the son and name- 
sake of L. A. Warren, Sr., pharmacist of 
Garland. He graduated from the State 
University last June with the degree of 
S.B. in Pharmacy and passed the State 
Board of Pharmacy examinations a few 
days later. Since that time he has been as- 
sociated with Hall's Drug Store, of Wil- 
mington, and the young couple will make 
their home at 210 Forest Hill Drive in the 
Cape Fear city. The wedding, coming as it 
did during the week-end of the School of 
Pharmacy dances, caused considerable in-

many of whom had been in the University

% According to medical history, the first accurate re- 
port of a case of pernicious anemia was made in 1822. 
For more than a century thereafter the disease con- 
tinued to be almost universally fatal. Arsenic and 
transfusions were used, but did little more than post- 
pone the issue. Then in 1925 came the studies of 
Whipple and Robscheit-Robbins, followed by the work 
of Minot and Murphy, which soon led to the liver 
extracts so widely prescribed today. 

Eli Lilly and Company is proud to have had a part 
in this development. It was the Lilly man in your 
territory who first placed liver extract, in any form, 
at the disposal of your physicians. His work has con- 
tinued without interruption, and during the month of 
May he is featuring liver extracts in all his professional 
interviews, with special emphasis on 'Lextron' (Liver- 
Stomach Concentrate with Ferric Iron and Vitamin B 
Complex, Lilly) and 'Reticulogen' (Parenteral Liver 
Extract with Vitamin Bi, Lilly). It will pay you to 
co-operate with your Lilly man. He works for you, 
never against you. That is the Lilly Policy.

The Sixty-first Annual Convention 

he sixty-first annual meeting of the N. C. P. A. was a huge success. The registra- 

books were signed by 944 persons and at each session the convention hall was filled 
delegates who took an interested part in the deliberations. 

resident Gattis made a fine presiding officer and the several committee chairmen 
lied their assignments in splendid style. Interesting and instructive programs were 
pnted by the Papers and Queries Committee under the leadership of Chairman Rimmer 
f the Committee on Practical Pharmacy and Dispensing under the direction of 
Lrman Reamer. The papers covered a wide range of thought and showed careful study, 
ked interest was displayed in the professional side of pharmacy and there were a 
ter number of papers presented on this subject than ever before. 
The several guest speakers contributed an inspiring and helpful part to the program. 

the first time in the history of the Association the President of the N. C. Medical 
ety was present and addressed the convention. We are deeply indebted to Dr. Hubert 
Avood for coming to us and for his address on "Professional Relations." 
Several other speeches stand out as high lights in the program, notably the Presi- 
:ial Address of Phil Gattis, the addresses of E. C. Billheimer, Assistant Vice-Presi- 
: in Charge of Manufacturing of E. R. Squibb and Sons, and Turner F. Currens, 
i-President of the Norwich Pharmaeal Co., both of whom spoke on the subject of 
tamins," the first from a scientific angle and the second from a commercial stand- 
it; the speeches of Vice-President, L. 0. Heideman, of the Neilsen Drug Index; of 
R. Mull, Manager, Trade Advertising, Eli Lilly and Co., on "Inter-Professional R-ela- 
s;" of Ralph Clark, Director of the Pharmacy Service Department, Merck and Co., 
"Trends in Pharmacy," and the talk of Carl Goerch. 

Every one was delighted that Pharmacist-Congressman Carl T. Durham arranged his 
schedule so as to be present. His timely remarks brought round after round of 
lause from his fellow druggists. 

The Women's Auxiliary announced that they had added $162.00 during the year to 
r Loan Fund for needy pharmacy students at the State University. 
The Student Branch had a splendid display just outside of the convention hall and 

esentatives of the organization were in attendance. Two of the members presented 
ers before the Practical Pharmacy and Dispensing Section and the report of the Secre- 
7 showed that the Branch has had a most successful year. 

Secretary Rose reported that there are now 857 members in the N. C. P. A. The 
owing new members were accepted at the Charlotte meeting : Shelton B. Boyd, of 
h Point; Thomas M. Bruce, of Hot Springs; Marion M. Edmonds and Henry M.

Secretary F. W. Hancock, of the Board of Pharmacy, announced that there are 1, 
pharmacists in North Carolina and 910 drug stores. There are 18 women pharmac: 
and 58 hold assistant pharmacist licenses. 

Fair Trade occupied a prominent part in the convention proceedings : "If we are 
keep Fair Trade we must give it the support to which it is entitled." 

Winton Blair Rankin, of Boone, won the Beal Membership Prize for 1939. 

The Association acted favorably upon the following matters: (1) The fiscal year 
be identical with the calendar year; (2) the Secretary is to visit every drug store betw 
conventions; (3) Pharmacists who have reached the age of 65 are to be given I 
Memberships in the Association; (4) Members of the Board of Pharmacy are to be elec 
for a five-year term (as formerly) but such members cannot succeed themselves. 1 
provision will not prohibit the re-election of any member of the present Board for 
additional term. 

Regret was expressed on all sides that J. G. Beard had resigned as Seeretary-Treasii 
of the Association and as Managing Editor of the Journal. Suitable resolutions 9 
sent to him in appreciation of his long and splendid service. He was made histoi 
of the Association and in this capacity will be custodian of the historical and biograph 
materia] of the organization. 

Floyd Goodrich, the genial and efficient secretary-treasurer of the T. M. A., 
greatly missed at the convention. Friends were distressed to learn that he was ill 
home with pneumonia and many messages of sympathy were sent to him. 

The following officers of the Association were installed at the final session: Presid 
Jos. Hollingsworth, of Mount Airy; First Vice-President, Ralph P. Rogers, of Durh; 
Second Vice-President, Paul B. Bissette, of Wilson; Third Vice-President, W. M. Sal' 
of Asheville ; and Member of the Executive Committee for a Three-Year Term, Phill 
Gattis, of Raleigh. (The two elected members of the Executive Committee who art 
be continued from last year are P. J. Suttlemyre, of Hickory, and C. C. Fordham, 
of Greensboro.) M. B. Melvin, of Raleigh, was re-elected as a member of the Board 

The T. M. A. elected the following officers: President, C. H. Smith, of Charlo

express it simply — each and every one of us had a wonderful time and we are de['l] 
indebted to our several hosts and hostesses.

Limiting Sales 

By B. C. Moore, of Eoeky Mount 
(One of the 80% class) 

ere was carried in the March issue of the 
"AL a letter from a Journal reader under 
iption, "Favors Limiting Sales of Barbitu- 
to Prescriptions." Mr. Moore has sent in 
•tide below in answer to this letter. The 
AL has always published gladly unsolicited 
s expressing the views of its readers and in 
ith this policy we are carrying the contri- 
that follows. — Ed.) 

rish herein to answer the article which 
ired in the March issue of the Journal 
e question of limiting sales of barbitu- 
to prescriptions only, 
such is to be done would it not be wise 
dude in the requirement sales such drug 
items as cigarettes, sandwiches, tooth- 
, C. C. pills, Lysol, carbolic acid, and 
oride tablets? Wouldn't it be wise 
to include cartridges and gun shells? 
can easily visualize the great amount 
oney all this would bring to the pre- 
tion writer. 

'seriously challenge any person reading 
ito show me a single narcotic addict 
j' through any other than the prescrip- 
route. Once landed in the addict column 
ay of prescription, the unfortunate one, 
her with ail of his relations and busi- 
associates, is penalized for his eon- 
mce of the use of the drugs until only 
1 relieves the situation. It is a matter 
cord that of the 105 deaths due to the 
)f Sulfanylamide Elixir, exactly 100 of 
came by way of the prescription route, 
a't is actually true that the retail drug 
iiess is so abused and restricted by lob- 
g and undercover work that the situa- 
is now almost unbearable? If such con- 
ks, as is now the vogue, just how many 
s will it be before a few rich firms eon- 
all of the business? 
can't resist offering just a few illus- 
ons which I think will show you how 
wealthy drug firms in collusion with 
manufacturers are so easily taking ad- 
age of their position. Naturally they 
claim and advertise that such is pos- 
by reason of their buying power, 
ist three weeks ago the salesman of 
of the largest and best-known manu- 

facturing drug firms came in to see me 
and to notify me that in two days I would 
be prosecuted should I sell a certain brand 
of their tablets in their boxes of 1 dozen 
for less than 25e. At the very same time 
this firm was allowing one, whom I choose 
to call their "pet cutter," to flood the town 
with them at the rate of 6 l-10c per dozen. 
(For the benefit of the editor I am herein 
enclosing an advertisement to prove this 
statement. ) I asked the salesman to give 
me the price on the size quantity this "pet 
cutter" was getting, but the gentleman ac- 
knowledged that he did not know. I guess 
that such must be a secret! I wonder why? 

The Fair Trade Act (H. R. 8442) reads 
as follows: "That it shall be unlawful for 
any person engaged in commerce ; in the 
course of such commerce, either directly or 
indirectly, to discriminate in price between 
different purchasers of such commodities of 
like grade and quality.'' 

Another illustration of a flagrant viola- 
tion of the spirit of this Act : A retailer 
was sued by a manufacturer for the selling 
of Insulin at a few cents cut rate but dur- 
ing the proceedings the manufacturer was 
selling the druggist its cold capsules in 
quantity lots at the rate of 20 capsules 
for 51c with a resale price as low as 80c 
while I, engaged in the same business, must 
pay, as a competitive retailer, $1.02 for a 
like number with an indictment if I resold 
them for less than $1.50 for the same 20 

It is my honest opinion that we 80% of 
the 860 licensed drug stores in the State, 
who come in a capital stock bracket of 
$15,000 or less should organize a Druggist 
Retail Protective Association, independent of 
all other associations, for the purpose of 
fighting for our legal and our moral rights 
now covered by laws already passed. We 
should have an association so well organ- 
ized that we will be able to get an audience 
with the administrator of the Fair Trade 
Act or any manufacturer Avho is now and

Biltmore, N. C, 
May 2, 1940. 
To the Editor: 

I read with great interest Mr. McAllis- 
ter's article in the April issue of the Jour- 
nal entitled, "Burdensome Prescription In- 
ventories." I am not a drug store owner 
but I do have an active interest in my pro- 
fession and I have put much thought and 
time into the "Specialty" problem in an ef- 
fort to understand clearly why the doctor 
insists upon prescribing specialty products 
that wholly contain, or are mainly composed 
of, IT. S. P. or N. F. products. Such prod- 
ucts are trade-marked and the patient pays 
a premium for them. Without a doubt such 
preparations entail a greater expense to the 
patient and the pharmacist bears the brunt 
of the customer's complaint about high 
priced medicine. To cite an example: con- 
sider the cost of a prescription for Elixir 
Phenobarbital, N. F., or Phenobarbital 
Soluble in Aromatic Elixir against the cost 
of several almost identical specialty prod- 
ucts presented to the physician under a 
trade-marked name. 

The advertising used by the manufac- 
turers in bringing the product to the atten- 
tion of the doctor through the various medi- 
cal journals and by personal detail work, 
employs the same psychology that sells 
"mamma" and "poppa" their soap, shoe 
strings, tooth paste and radios. I believe 
this to be one factor in the problem: the 
doctor succumbs to the high-pressure ad- 
vertising methods of the manufacturer. 
When we read these advertisements care- 
fully we are given the impression that the 
manufacturer is attempting to do the pre- 
scribing of medicine for the doctor. But 
after all, the object of the manufacturer is 
to do the best possible job of selling. That's 

Why must there be thousands of special- 
ties when (with few exceptions) the same 
product with the same therapeutic effect can 
be obtained by a prescription of official 
drugs and chemicals'? Such a prescription 
would also have the advantage of giving the 
particular patient the exact amount of medi- 
cation needed. T have interviewed several 
doctors and dentists upon the subject and 
I have found their answers pretty clearly 
defined. All of those interviewed were of 
the same opinion and their views can be 
expressed in the statement of an ear, eye, 

nose and throat specialist. He declare< 
believe the prescribing of specialties ii 
to the lack of time to write a prescri 
to be compounded. It is much eashj 
write off a specialty instead of takinj 
time to write a prescription to be 
pounded. It is true, however, that the 
product in a number of cases could be 
ten out of the U. S. P. and N. F." A 
tor of dental surgery explained that 
reason for using specialties was chiefly 
to the i ersonality and salesmanship ol 
detail man. 

The doctor first quoted also made a 

gestion to remedy the necessity for floe 

prescription stocks with specialties. Leg 

tion might be obtained, or at least a 

posal should be made to the manufactu 

backed by the State Association, that 

take up unused stock after a period o: 

to twelve months and refund the pha 

cist's money. It should be stated tha 

creating the product and a sale for it 

a period of time), the manufacturer shj 

be responsible for the preparation. 

druggist has to stock numbers of such ii 

out of self-defense. The manufact 

knows that a doctor's demand for a rj 

aration will force the druggist to s 

even the "popular-for-a-day products." 

In the light of this information Ij 

lieve that we must hold the manufactij 

responsible and take the problem to tl 

In discussing this question with the se\ 

physicians I called upon I found out i 

they were willing to support and co-ope 

with any individual or group that use 

little pressure and perseverance in pers 1 

ing him to do business with such comp] 

If the detail man can accomplish this f< 

salary why cannot the druggist gain 

same and for the sake of his professior 

In the Practical Pharmacy Edition of 

April issue of the Journal of the Amen 

Pharmaceutical Association several intei 

ing ideas may be found in the sect 

"Committee on Professional Relations, Tl 

Report." The article tells what other st; 

and groups are doing to gain a closer r 

tionship with the physician. 

If anything I have said in this art 
will lie of any service in lighting up 
specialty problem in the prescription ro 
I will be gratified.

Tennessee Fair Trade Bureau 1937- 

1940 Died for Lack of Financial 


For more than a quartery-eentury, the 7 ' 
drug industry of Tennessee had hoped, 
prayed and worked for a realization of 
price protection against nefarious price 
cutters and unscrupulous chiselers. On 
February 16, 1937, Fair Trade was born 
to the druggists of Tennessee. In the three 
short years of its existence, it showed the 
promise of realization of most of the fond 
hopes and dreams that the fond parent of 
this legislation had hoped and prayed and 
worked for. 

It stopped the nefarious price cutters and 
chiselers, it stabilized the price of nearly 
five thousand items that allowed the retail 
druggists to know exactly the least at which 
these commodities could be legally sold. 

Its mandates and dictations were obeyed 
without hesitancy by all who were affected 
in the grand old Volunteer State, but — alas 
and alack — it continued to emaciate and 
dwindle from lack of proper financial assist- 
ance until those who had hoped and prayed 
and worked for its existence allowed it, 
through the narrow channels of petty jeal- 
ousy and short-sightedness, to die and cease 
its existence after three short years of life 
that were filled with activity for the benefit 
of those who caused its creation. 

It is hard to conceive of intelligent men 
who have their life savings invested in an 

industry, the existence of which is so vi 
entwined with the life and perpetuatid 
Fair Trade, to sit idly by and allow 
great emancipator whose future was 
coming brighter each day, and whose p 
was broadening to more general fields 
year, to die for the want of support 
financial assistance, but this is a true s 

It may be that it was the persomn 
those who were directing the activitiej 
Fair Trade caused this indifference to 
its existence, for we realize that mist 
have been made, and bad judgment has 
exercised at times, but we are sure that 
entire personnel of your Fair Trade Bu 
stands ready and stood ready, at any 1 
to step aside and make room for those ^ 
capable, when and if they had been sele 
by the druggists of Tennessee. 

We realize our misgivings and short 
ings, but we have pleaded on numerous 
casions for constructive criticisms and 
gestions and have given an attentive 
responsive ear to all that have come, 
with all of that, the druggists of Teimt 
have failed to cooperate to the exten 
either naming other personnel, or of 
tributing financial support to the si 
nance of the Fair Trade movement 

Hence, without immediate financial as 
ante to this cause, Fair Trade will 
must cease its aggressive activities in 
State of Tennessee, and allow the grand 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


unteer State to again become the battle- 
of price cutters and pernicious 


nd that is not all. When the Fair Trade 

•eau has ceased to operate, our uptown 

?e will have to be closed and the secre- 

of your Association will revert back to 

jt-time secretary as the Association does 

have, under the present financial set-up, 

[ncial arrangements for a full time secre- 

| and an office. 






NTote: The above article appeared in a 
lent issue of the Tennessee Pharmacist, a 

monthly bulletin edited by Mr. Tom C. 
Sharpe, Secretary to the Tennessee Pharma- 
ceutical Association and Director of the 
Fair Trade Bureau Incorporated, Nashville, 
Tennessee. The caption "Tennessee Fair 
Trade Bureau 1937-1940 Died for Lack of 
Financial Support" appeared on the front 
page of this publication and was inscribed 
upon a tombstone of a grave beside which 
lay a more or less decomposed body. When 
this particular article was written and 
mailed to the drug stores of Tennessee, the 
Fair Trade Committee had no funds with 
which to continue to carry on its work. 
So forceful was this appeal, however, that 
the druggists in that State responded almost 
immediately with checks totaling but slight- 
ly less than $2,000. Consequently, the Fair 
Trade Movement did not die and remains 
a potent factor there. It is published here 
with the hope that it will bestir a like in- 
terest for Fair Trade among the druggists 
of North Carolina as was the case in the 
sister State of Tennessee. 

N. A. R. D. Undertakes Study of 
Price Discrimination 

Evidence was presented to the Executive 
immittee of the N. A. B. D. at its recent 
ieting, that some pharmaceutical houses 
3 selling their products to hospital dis- 
nsaries at prices so low that they can 
sell them to patients and physicians for 
!S than retail druggists pay for them. 
le Executive Committee directed that a 
ady be made and that all legal measures 
taken to stop this form of discrimination. 

/itamins in Capsules and Tablets 
Are Drugs 

In the opinion of the members of the 
. A. B. D. Executive Committee, concen- 
ated vitamins, packed in capsules, bottles 
• tablets, are drugs rather than foods; and 
e public welfare demands that they should 
? handled and sold as remedial agents, 
uler the protection accorded by the govern- 
ent to other remedial agencies. These prod- 
>ts are standardized according to medical 
'quirements, and are used not merely as 
ourishing agents but as means of building 
p the patient's health ; they are potent and 
re, therefore, subject to abuse as well as 
se, and their sale should lie made under 
le supervision of trained pharmacists. 

At a meeting held in Chicago recently the 
Executive Committee decided to oppose the 
Food and Drug Administration ruling that 
such vitamin products are foods, and to. 
demand a public hearing on the question. 

Will Assemble Fair Trade 

There is at present no place where access 
can be had to all court decisions affecting 
Fair Trade, and accordingly the N. A. B. 
D. has decided to collect a complete library 
on the subject. A collection of this kind 
will be valuable, not only to lawyers han- 
dling such eases in the courts but to manu- 
facturers and retailers who may wish to be 
fully and dependably advised concerning 
their rights and obligations. 

A Retailer's Responsibility 

A retailer assumes the responsibility for 
all prices quoted in any advertisement he 
may issue in newspapers, radio or hand- 
bills; therefore, it is his duty to cheek 
the prices contained in these avenues of 
publicity to see that there is no eonfliction 
with the Fair Trade or Drug Control Laws, 
thereby eliminating the possibility of any 
error other than typographical. — Tennessee

The President a Rustler 
We have again and again commented on 
President Gattis' ability to do so many 
things well and to accomplish them so 
quickly and efficiently, but how he has 
found time during his busy year as presi- 
dent of the Association to visit over 300 
drug stores in the State is something for 
us all to marvel at. In addition, he at- 
tended the annual conventions of the X. A. 
R. D. and the A. Ph. A. 

Charlotte Was Their First 
President Gattis and President-elect Hol- 
lingsworth each announced in Charlotte that 
the first N. C. P. A. meeting they attended 
was in that city. This year they returned 
to the Queen City — one to preside over the 
convention and the other to be installed as 
president for the coming year. 

We Were Glad to See Mr. Blair 
We were delighted to see Pharmacist R. 
K. Blair at the meeting. He has been 
quite ill during the winter, but has rapidly 
improved during the past few weeks and 
is now back on the job each day at his 
Charlotte drug store. 

New Friends and Old Friends 
One of the very nicest features of the con- 
vention for us is seeing so many old friends 
and having the opportunity to meet new 
ones. We appreciate so much the many cour- 
tesies that were extended to us and we wish 
to thank everybody who made us have such 
a good time ! 

Did You Bear From Us? 

On June 1st bills and ballots were mailed 
from the Secretary-Treasurer's office. The 
Executive Committee authorized us to send 
both "B's" in one envelope to save postage. 
We know you all want to vote and if any- 
one failed to receive his ballot please let 
us know and we will send duplicate at once. 
Trained in the Way They Should Go 

A few days ago we had the pleasure of a 
visit from Mr. and Mrs. E. T. Beddingfield, 
of Clayton. They were accompanied by 
their son, "E. T., Jr." who will enter the 
School of Pharmacy in the fall. We are 
looking forward with pleasure to having 
him as a student. It always pleases us 
when "sons of fathers" are interested in 
following in their sire's footsteps. Inci- 

dentally, in this year's senior class s< 
of the twenty-one graduates are the I 
and daughters of pharmacists. 

Another Hood to Study Pharmacy 
And speaking of training boys and g 
in the way they should go we take pleas 
in announcing that next fall Miss M 
Marsh Hood, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. 
C. Hood, of Kinston, will enter the Scl 
of Pharmacy at the University. This y 
she has been a freshman at Meredith ( 
lege where she served as president of 
freshman class. "The Twig," the offh 
organ of the student body of the colic 
recently carried a column article about M 
Hood, characterizing her as a campus leac 
Among other things the editor says: ' 
her senior year in high school she was voj 
the most intellectual, the most popular s 
the best all-round. ... As freshman el 
president she has worked hard and well, 
her success signified. . . . Last semester 
made first honor roll. . . ." 

Who Holds the Record? 
And while we are mentioning the Hoo 
we wonder if any "clan" in North Caroli 
has had more pharmacists in it than tj 
one. We have just looked over our files aj 
find that through the years there have bJ 
thirteen members of this "tribe" to hi 
licenses as Tar Heel pharmacists! T, 
third generation is now practicing the pi 

Do You Have Any Bach Proceedings 
In the May Journal we sent out a c 
for certain Proceedings of the N". C. P. 
of former years needed for our files, 
you have even one of the requested nui 
bers won't you be good enough to let 
have it for the Association's records? Thai 
you ! 

Happy Landings! 
And now that vacation time is almo ! 
around the corner we are wishing for y< 
the nicest summer imaginable. If yoi 
trail leads anywhere near Chapel Hill won 
you drop by to see us? We shall be 
glad to have you. If you can't pay us 
visit, won't you send us a card and lj 
us know where you are and what you { 
doing? And again we say— here's to y 
and a happy vacation!

tant and advantageous to the profession. 

North Carolinians Attend National 

During the week of May 6-11 many 
North Carolinians were in Richmond, Va., 
attending the several national pharmaceuti- 
cal meetings. Dr. E. V. Zoeller and Messrs. 
F. W. Hancock, J. G. Ballew, and R. A. 
McDuffie represented North Carolina at the

Motor Cars Should Carry First 
Aid Supplies 

It is safe to say that 90 l / c of the medi- 
cine chests in any community are inade- 
quately or haphazardly stocked with First 
Aid supplies and home remedies, declares the 
N. A. R. D. Journal. Calling attention to 
National First Aid Week, the journal says 
that the home medicine chest is not the only 
spot for the enterprising druggist to aim at 
in selling such supplies. The automobile 
is another. Even fewer cars are equipped 
to care for first aid emergencies than are 
homes. The number of automobile accidents 
is increasing with the number of vehicles 
and drivers; and along with it the need 
for first-aid training and the materials with 
which to apply it when required is growing. 

We Ask You Once Again 

It is very hard to publish a Jotjrxal that 
carries news about each and every druggist 
in the State unless we have help. Won't 
you, therefore, drop us a card whenever 
you hear of something that will be of in- 
terest to your fellow druggists? Some of 
our readers have formed a clipping habit — 
that is whenever they see something in the 
papers about druggists or drug stores they 
cut it out and send it to us. How about 
you forming this habit ?

retired Greensboro druggist, which occurred 
on the night of May 4 at a hospital in New 
Orleans after several months of declining 
health. Mr. Herndon was a native of 
'Chatham county and was 53 years of age. 
He was licensed as a pharmacist in 1912 
and had practiced his profession in Durham 
and Greensboro. He had been identified 
witli the retail drug business in the Gate 
City for the past thirty years. His last 
business activity was that of operating the 
Carolina Pharmacy. Due to ill health he

soon after his arrival there and the greate 
part of his time since then had been speri 
in a hospital. He was a life member o 
the N. C. P. A., and also held membershi.

The New Secretary "Treasurer 


The Executive Committee of the N. C. P. A. takes pleasure in announc- 
ing the appointment of William Julius Smith as Secretary-Treasurer of the 
organization and as Managing Editor of the Carolina Journal of Pharmacy. 
Mr. Smith will assume his new responsibilities on July first and will make 
his headquarters in Chapel Hill. He will also serve as an inspector of the 
Board of Pharmacy. 

The new official needs no introduction to the pharmacists of North Caro- 
lina. He is originally from Morganton and attended State College and the 
State University, graduating from the Chapel Hill institution with the degree 
of S.B. in Pharmacy in 1937. While in college he was prime mover in 
making successful the Student Branch of the State Association during its 
first year of existence and served as its first president. He earned good 
grades in college; served as student assistant in the laboratories; was a 
member of Rho Chi ; and at graduation won the Buxton Williams Hunter 
Medal for Leadership and Scholarship. He was licensed as a pharmacist in 
June of his graduation year. In his travels over the State as Inspector of 
the Board of Pharmacy he has made many friends who will be greatly 
pleased to learn of his new honor. During the coming months he will visit 
every drug store in North Carolina. On behalf of the druggists of the State 
we wish to extend our heartiest congratulations to Mr. Smith and to pledge 
to him our heartiest co-operation. — A. N.

Interprofessional Relations' 

By B. E. Mull 

Manager, Trade Advertising, 

Eli Lilly and Co. 

. . . During the last several years it lias 
been my good fortune to participate in 
more than thirty state, national, and section- 
al conventions. At all of these conventions 
the topics for discussion have been much 
the same. They have been good topics. 
They have had to do with Fair Trade, with 
the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, 
with problems of store management, and 
methods of selling and display. We all 
agree, I am sure, that these are excellent 
topics. But sometimes I feel that we have 
lost sight of the value of the prescription 
department, which after all is the vital or- 
gan of the entire drug industry. 

About the only thing that identifies the 
drug store these days is the sign over the 
door. Step inside, and we find everything 
from silk hose to Pinnocchio and Ferdinand 
the Bull. Please understand that I believe 
in front-end merchandising, but I don't be- 
lieve that it should be allowed to crowd out 
the professional factor. The crusade which 
I have been conducting in favor of the pre- 
scription department for many years is 
purely a matter of economies with me, and 
not professional pride. 

Despite all the allegations that are hurled 
at our heads, we need make no apologies for 
pharmacy. Pharmacy was first practiced 
at the time that the first man had his first 
illness. We could not go back much farther. 
For hundreds of years it was practiced as a 
part of medicine. Then, along in the twelfth 
or thirteenth century, pharmacy was sep- 
arated from medicine and there was estab- 
lished the apothecary shop. It became the 
function of the apothecary shop to com- 
pound and dispense on the doctor's orders 
medicines for the relief of suffering and 
distress. And so you see that a certain 
responsibility is traditional, and no matter 
how much merchandising he may do, no 
pharmacist can escape his responsibility to 
public health. 

* Presented at the 1940 Convention of the 
N. C. P. A. 

This responsibility has multiplied durii 
the last twenty-five or thirty years. Chan{| 
has been described as the outstanding cha 
acteristic of modern civilization. Those 
us who have been associated with the drv 
business for many years are conscious 
the many changes which reflect themselv 
in the operation of our own affairs. Mo 
ern medical research, as well as modific 
tions in the general social structure ai 
higher standards of living are responsib'. 
(Note: At this point the speaker cit 
examines of modern changes in therapeui 

Now, despite all the opportunities whi 
these developments have brought, the ret 
drug business, as such, has undergone 
steady process of degeneration. Autho 
ties agree that this condition is almost ^ 
tirely due to too much commercializatij 
at the expense of the prescription depa 
ment. The drug business hasn 't gone to t 
dogs — not by any means. We still do 
retail one and one-third billions a year, a 
the drug business employs in all its brand' 
about one-half million people. 

I well realize, as do all of us, that t 
average drug store cannot live on its p 
scription department alone. There are, as" 
matter of fact, only 592 strictly professio 
stores in the United States. But my | 
tention is that the pharmacist should 1 
the prescription business first and then i 
vote whatever may be left of his time a 
energy to merchandising miscellaneous lin 
It is a matter of record that profits usua ! 
go out the window with prescription-depaj 
ment neglect. 

Sometimes I wonder whether or not 
have a proper appreciation of the prescr 
tion market. There most assuredly is! 
prescription market. There are sold dir 
to physicians or prescribed by physicians 
a single year liquid preparations to 
amount of $30,000,000; dry preparatic 
$30,000,000: vitamins, $13,000,000; 
poules, $11,000,000; endocrines, $11,000,01

logicals for human consumption alone, 
000,000; ointments, $7,000,000; chemi- 
s, $7,000,000; alkaloids, $6,000,000; and 
•ious unclassified items, which brings the 
al to $140,000,000. Add to this direct 
es to hospitals by retail drug stores, and 

find that prescription sales and direct 
es to hospitals and physicians represent 
-eighth of total drug store sales and 
ty per cent of total net profit. 
That is only half the story. If we credit 
the prescription department every ounce 
iodine, every ounce of spirit of cam- 
)r, and all other items that could not be 
i by a store which did not operate a pre- 
iption department, we find that the pre- 
iption department accounts for twenty 

cent of total drug store volume and sixty 

cent of net drug store profit. 
Dake an average drug store of $25,000 
mal volume. If the owner nets five per 
it on sales, he has done quite well because 
linarily a five per cent net profit rep- 
ents about a twenty per cent income on 
'estment. Five per cent of $25,000 is 
250, which represents the net profit of 

store. Now let us assume that twenty 

cent of the volume, or $5,000, is in the 
scription department. We all know that 

prescription department yields a net 
jfit of fifteen per cent. Fifteen per cent 
$5,000 is $750, which is sixty per cent 
the total net profit of $1,250, taken from 
bnty per cent of the sales. Go where you 
ty, it's the stores that do a substantial 
[ascription volume that really make the 
Iney, and after all that's one of the 
lings we are in business for. 
ifn a county-seat town in Indiana, we have 
lichain unit which last year did $95,000 
ume. The store did no prescription busi- 
es whatever and showed at the end of 

year a net profit of $3,000. In the 
pie town, in the same block, is a store 
||ich last year did only $27,000. This was 
I a good prescription store, but about 
I per cent of the volume was in the pre- 
option department, and that store also 
Ide $3,000 net profit. 

hi a middle-western state a study was 
de of three stores of equal volume. These 
^res are situated in three representative 
:mty-seat towns, as nearly alike as county- 
It towns in the same section of the coun- 

try can be. Operating expense of the three 
stores was almost identical. The first store 
is operated by a chap who doesn't want any- 
thing to do with doctors. He says that all 
they do is smoke his cigars and spit on the 
floor, and he would rather not have them 
around. And so he goes in for merchan- 
dising in a big way, and last year on a 
$35,000 volume the net profit was $30.28. 
Now the second store will accept prescrip- 
tions. They don 't care a lot whether they 
get them or not, but they will take them as 
they happen along, and even with this in- 
different attitude, the prescription depart- 
ment represented last year thirty per cent 
of total volume, and this $35,000 store made 
$725 net. The third store, although doing 
a general drug business, features the pre- 
scription department, cultivates the good 
will of physicians with the result that twen- 
ty-five per cent of the total volume is in 
the prescription department. This store, 
doing the same general volume as the other 
two, yielded last year a net profit of 
$3,053. These are not freak examples. They 
can be duplicated in almost any state in the 
Union. They are, I believe, conclusive evi- 
dence that the prescription business does 
pay. . . . 

Prescription promotion is quite a simple 
problem. An important thing, I believe, 
and one which is seldom given any consid- 
eration is a proper understanding of the 
physician and his problems. Sometimes we 
are inclined to believe that we have all of 
the trouble and that the doctor has none 

The normal decline from death and re- 
tirement among physicians of the country 
is about 4,000 a year. There are graduated 
from the recognized schools about 6,500, 
making an increase over the decline of 
2,500 annually. The physician in practice 
has drawn into his field each year a surplus 
of 2,500 young physicians which must be ab- 
sorbed. In addition he has to compete with 
the chiropractor, the osteopath, the meeha- 
no-therapist, and all the other off-brand 
practitioners, none of whom probably do 
much good but all of whom take patients 
from the physician. I don't believe that 
the pharmacist should offer any condolences 
because they would be quite unwelcome. 
Neither do I believe that any pharmacist

can hope to develop a prescription business 
while handing out cards for the chiroprac- 
tor. His friend is the physician — the li- 
censed M.D. 

There are many factors involved in the 
development of a prescription clientele that 
are so elementary that they need no discus- 
sion here. An efficient physical arrange- 
ment is of the utmost importance. This 
doesn 't mean that fancy fixtures are neces- 
sary, because they are not. Cleanliness, ade- 
quate compounding equipment, comprehen- 
sive stocks of the items in prescription de- 
mand, prompt service, attractive containers, 
and a strict observance of business princi- 
ples and professional ethics are also essen- 

The basic principle of all promotion work 
is personal calls on physicians. This is 
something that few of us will do, but those 
who do establish a regular schedule of calls 
are well paid for their efforts. The ideal 
frequency is twelve times a year at regular 
intervals. These calls should be supple- 
mented by regular mailings and other forms 
of promotion efforts which the local situa- 
tion might dictate. 

We have on this platform representatives 
of the University of North Carolina School 
of Pharmacy. This institution is beyond 
any doubt the most important single factor 
in the drug industry of the state. At the 
time I was a student of pharmacy we all 
went to school with the same idea : that was 
to finish the course, pass the state examina- 
tion, and then get a job in some drug store 
where we could work eighteen hours a day 
seven days a week until the time eventu- 
ally came when, through the grace of God 
and the help of the wholesaler, we could 
get a store of our own where we could 
work twenty-four hours a day seven days a 

There is no finer prospect in any field of 
endeavor in this enlightened age than there 
is for the graduate in pharmacy. If he 
finds during the course of his work that 
he doesn't want to engage in retail prac- 
tice, there are many other things for which 
he is qualified upon the completion of his 
course. He may teach if he wishes, and 
while teaching has been described as a long 
way to starvation, we have evidence to the 

If the student is so inclined, he can ts 
all necessary pre-medic work during 
course in pharmacy by proper selection ( 
his eleetives. During the last few yeai 
many pharmacists have become associate 
with the United States Public Health Ser 
ice. Young men, in particular, like th 
work, one of the reasons being that the 
are charged with the responsibility of teac 
ing nurses. The thing they don't unde 
stand when they enter the service is fa 
they are told what they can teach, whi< 
sometimes results in a slight disappointmer 

Diagnostic laboratories engage many 
our young people. Hospital pharmacy 
another field wide open to those who aspi 
to hospital work. Some of our large citi 
now have ordinances which require the ei 
ployment of one registered pharmacist f; 
every one hundred beds. This plan is ta 
ing the hospital work out of the hanj 
of the student nurse and the janitor an 
placing it in the hands of the pharmaci; 
where it rightfully belongs. Young ladi) 
in particular are in great demand as 9 
pital pharmacists. In addition to being 
little more intelligent, they have an add 
advantage : they don 't bother the studel 
nurses. Then again, if the graduate war 
to earn his living the hard way, there 
always the pharmaceutical manufacturer ai 
the wholesale druggist. Hundreds of regj 
tered people are now so employed. 

All in all, retail practice is the big fiel 
and I am hopeful that every 1940 graduf 
will spend at least three years in a retl 
drug store. In addition to the experier 
which retail practice affords, our graduaiij 
are really needed in retail stores. Thefl 
are in these United States fewer than 111 
000 registered pharmacists. The mortal^ 
among this group is about 3,400 a yed 
Prior to 1030, the sixty-eight schools 
pharmacy recognized in the states in wha 
they operate were graduating about 4,0' 
students a year. Then came the much-d- 
cussed depression, together w 7 ith the I 
ginning of higher educational standard 
The number of graduates immediately begt] 
to decline, and by 1935 only 1,722 « 
graduated. In 1936 the number of gra«' i :

were graduated. And so you see that if I 
of our 1940 graduates Avere to engage in it 
tail practice there would actually be I 
jobs for every single man or woman. I 
you match it in any other line of e, 
deavor ? 

If this keeps up, there are but thrj 
avenues of escape. The first is lower ed> 
eational standards, to which I am qui 
sure none of us will agree. The second 
fewer drug stores. While it is possible th 
in certain sections there are too many dr 
stores, it is not for us to say whether 
not any of them is to be eliminated, 
have no right or authority to take a livi> 
from any man. The third, and I believe t 
right one, is more freshmen next fall. Wh: 
we have our problems in the drug field, t] 
retail drug business is so far superior 
any other form of retail endeavor that thci 
is absolutely no comparison. If you thii 
it isn 't, compare your problems with thd 
of your neighbors in other lines. 

After this convention is over and you ha 
made the adjustments which must foll( 
every convention, and have returned to yo 
store or your job, I trust that you will 
thankful with me that, after all, there 
such a thing as the drug business.

Our Anniversary 
Nineteen years ago on July 1st we began 
ur long continuous connection with the 
C. P. A. Twice before during the sum- 
ier we had worked in the Seeretary-Treas- 
rer's office for periods of three months at 
time. As we think back through the years 
many delightful memories come to us 
nd the events crowd upon each other so 
losely that it is hard to realize that it has 
een almost a decade since we timidly be- 
an taking Secretary-Treasurer Beard's dic- 
ation. We have enjoyed the work more 
lian we can say and then too we treasure 
le friendships we have formed among the 
harmaeists of North Carolina. It is hard 
express our feelings as we think of the 
ings that mean most to us, but we cannot 
1 our nineteenth anniversary pass by with- 
lut thanking each and every one of you 
rho have been so kind to us and who have 
tiade the work so pleasant through the 

A Splendid Prize 

Not long ago we had the pleasure of a 
•isit from Pharmacist Paul B. Bissette, of 
Yilson. On more than one occasion he has 
hown deep interest in the boys and girls 
Ko are studying to prepare themselves as 
)harmacists. While talking to Acting Dean 

W. Eose the other day he established an 
jinnual prize of $25.00 to be given to the 
student of pharmacy who prepares the best 
story about pharmacy, such article to be 
bublished in a paper with state-wide cir- 
culation. Of course, Dean Rose gladly ac- 
cepted the generous offer. This prize will 
perve as a fine stimulus to the younger gen- 
eration to think and write about their 
ehosen profession. The School of Pharmacy 
s taking this opportunity to thank" Drug- 
gist Bissette for his splendid prize. 

A High Spot of the Convention 
j To many of us attending the Charlotte 
meeting the highest spot of all came just 
before the final adjournment. We refer 
|to a short but earnest talk given by T. C. 
Yearwood. We wanted to mention this in- 
cident in the last issue of the Journal but 

we saved it until now for the number which 
is largely given over to graduation and 

Speaking feelingly of his boyhood days' 
in the drug store twenty-five years ago the 
Charlotte pharmacist told of how he had 
worked hard from early morning until late 
at night with a small salary in a determina- 
tion to prepare himself for his chosen pro- 
fession. He mentioned with some emotion 
that when he got ready to go off to college 
the owner of the store in which he worked 
paid part of his expenses. And then came 
the best part of all of his story. ' ' We in 
the Charlotte Drug Club, ' ' said the speaker, 
''will in the next year contact boys of high 
school age and get them jobs in drug stores. 
We will follow the careers of these boys 
closely and will aid them financially in going 
through college. That is one way that our 
organization can bring new blood into the 
profession and aid in the development of 
more and better pharmacists. ' ' In conclu- 
sion, Mr. Yearwood urged other drug clubs 
in the State to co-operate in such a plan 
in an effort to get young boys interested in 
pharmacy and trained so thoroughly that 
they will be a credit to themselves and to 
the profession. 

We cannot think of a more splendid pur- 
pose for a drug club and we hope other 
groups will adopt a similar plan! 

We Journey to Virginia 

Thanks to President Hollingsworth, we 
had the pleasure of attending the annual 
convention of the Ya. Phar. Assoc, in Roa- 
noke on June 24-25. We had a wonderful 
motor trip up the Blue Ridge Parkway and 
enjoyed every minute of our stay in the 
Old Dominion. It was a real privilege to 
attend the business sessions of the conven- 
tion and the several delightful "parties" to 
which we received special invitations. We 
likewise enjoyed very much being with many 
Virginians whose friendships we treasure 
very highly. President Hollingsworth in- 
vited the Virginia pharmacists to attend the 
1941 convention of the N. C. P. A. and we 
are delighted to report that many of them 
expect to be on hand!

given out. 

Meeting of the Executive Committee 

The Executive Committee of the State 
Association met in Chapel Hill on June 20 
with every member present except C. C. 
Fordham, who was unavoidably prevented 
from attending. The principal business 
that concerned the group was the selection 
of a new secretary-treasurer of the Associa- 
tion and a managing editor of the Journal 
to fill the positions made vacant by the 
resignation of Dean J. G. Beard early in 
March. When Mr. Beard resigned Professor 
I. W. Rose consented to serve as Acting 
Secretary-Treasurer and Acting Managing 
Editor of the Journal until this June meet- 
ing could be held. 

The Board of Pharmacy attended the 
meeting and presented a proposition where- 
by the official to be selected would not only 
act in the above capacities but would also 
serve as an inspector of the Board of 

Pharmacy. This proposal was accepted ai 
William Julius Smith, of Morganton, w; 
unanimously selected to fill the three ii 
portant posts, his salary to be born by tl, 
Board and the Association. Mr. Snii' 
will begin his new duties on July 1st I 
will have his headquarters in Chapel Hi 
During the coming months he is to vis' 
every drug store in North Carolina. 

F. 0. Bowman was re-elected as Attorns 
for the Association but Miss Alice Nob 
will sever her connection with both I 
Journal and the Association after the Pr 
ceedings are edited. Other routine bus; 
ness was disposed of.

A Letter From Dean J. G. Beard 

Hartford, Conn., June 26, 1940. 

I have just learned that Mr. W. J. Smith has been elected Secretary-Treasurer 
of the State Association and Managing Editor of the Carolina Journal of 
Pharmacy. This news pleases me greatly and I want to extend to Mr. Smith not 
merely my own best wishes and promises of support in his efforts, but to pledge 
what I am satisfied are the desires of the entire membership — the helping hand 
that he will want and need during his early days of administering the work that 
has now been made his. Having been on the job in question for almost twenty- 
eight years I know better perhaps than others how important it is that the Secre- 
tary receive the sympathetic support of the general membership. Knowing Mr. 
Smith I feel certain that he will give freely of his finest efforts to the new under- 
taking and will merit the support that is granted to him. He has the youth, energy 
,and the enthusiasm that are needed by the Association in the coming months that 
are going to be hard, and if he is made to feel that back of him lies the helpful 
support of the rank and file of the members, he will make good in a fine way. 
How about dropping him a eard and letting him know that you will support him 
and that you are glad he is on the job? Such things help all of us; particularly 
do they help younger men just beginning a new adventure. 

I wish at this point very earnestly to thank the pharmacists of North Carolina 
for the support they gave me while I was in office. The honor of being retained 
year after year as Secretary would have seemed empty if I had not at the same 
time received such fine support as to make the work involved partake somewhat 
of the nature of a hobby. I really got a big kick out of secretarying, and it saddens 
'me a bit to say goodbye to the job. My gratitude goes to those who made this 
pleasure possible. 

(Signed) J. G. BEARD.

We have just been looking over the list 
of members of the T. M. A. for the coming 
year and we note that 186 are now affiliated 
with the organization. Isn't that a splendid 
membership? Druggists all over the State 
appreciate the interest of the traveling men 
in the Association and the fine work they 
are doing in behalf of the organization. 

Druggists were greatly interested in see- 
ing the pictures of the Bush twins in the 
New YorTc Times and elsewhere last week. 
It seems that Bob Thompson, director of 
the State News Bureau, heard about them 
not long ago and landed their pictures with 
a syndicate. Thus it was that the picture 
of "Jean and June" "turned up all over 
the nation last week as the only fair sex 
twins on the registered pharmacist roster." 
Commenting upon the honor paid to these 
fine young ladies the editor of the News 
and Observer remarks: "The syndicates are 
getting fed up with bathing girls and News- 
man Thompson hit a natural with two beau- 
ties behind a prescription counter!" 

Wedding Bells 

The younger graduates of the University 
were interested and surprised to hear dur- 
ing Commencement Week of the marriage of 
Miss Elizabeth Milton Weaver, daughter of 
Mr. and Mrs. Jas. Balph Weaver, of Chapel 
Hill, to Dr. Harley Brookshire, Jr., of Ashe- 
ville, in New Orleans, La. on July 19, 1939. 
The bride is a 1940 graduate of the State 
University School of Pharmacy. She is a 
charter member of the University chapter 
of Kappa Epsilon, national pharmaceutical 
sorority, and of Chi Omega. Dr. Brookshire 
is also a graduate of the University and re- 
ceived his M.D. degree from Tulane Uni- 
versity this June. After the announcement 
of the wedding Dr. and Mrs. Brookshire 
spent some time in Asheville with the 
groom's parents before leaving for Cin- 
cinnati, Ohio, where the former is now a 
member of the staff of Saint Mary's Hos- 

Shortly before the announcement of the 
above wedding came the news of the mar- 
riage of another of this year's graduates — 
that of Charles Daniel McFalls and Miss 
Louise Brown, both of Greensboro, which 
took place on Dee. 2, 1939 in Martinsville, 
Va., at the home of the pastor of the First

from Newton but has spent a great deal of 
his time in recent years in Greensboro. Dur- 
ing his senior year at the University he 
served as student assistant in the labora- 
tories and was president of the graduating 

Another wedding of interest to the young- 
er druggists in particular was that of Wm. 
L. Sloan and Miss Ruth Hamilton, of Lum- 
berton, which took place in Virginia on

We were greatly interested to receive an 
invitation from B. F. Page to the marriage 
of his daughter, Helen Frances, to John 
Burgess Gaither on the evening of July 6th 
at the Edenton Street Methodist church in 
Raleigh. Many friends of Mr. Page and 
his charming daughter are making their 
plans to attend this wedding. 

We take pleasure in announcing the mar- 
riage of Miss Elnora Honeycutt, of Frank- 
linton, and Howard Emsley Whitley, of Con- 
cord, on the afternoon of June 19 in the 
Franklinton Methodist Church. Mr. Whit- 
ley is the son of Mrs. A. D. N. Whitley and 
the late Dr. Whitley of Monroe, and re- 
ceived his pharmaceutical education at the 
State University, graduating in 1929 with 
the degree of Ph.G. For the past several 
years he has been practicing his profession 
in Concord and is now a proprietor of the 
Whitmore Drug Co. After a wedding trip 
to New York and Atlantic City the young 
couple are at home to their friends in the 
Cabarrus town. 


Mr. and Mrs. A. B. McLeod, of Mebane, 
announce the adoption of a son on April 
28. The little boy was born on March 22 
making him five weeks old at the time of 
his adoption. His name is Alton Brooks 
McLeod, IT. The proud father tells us that 
his son "is going to be a real Norwiehite 
from the way he takes his Norwich cod- 
liver oil." 

We were greatly pleased to receive an an- 
nouncement of the birth of Gilbert Clyde 
Hartis, Jr., of Winston-Salem, on June 21. 

The young man weighed eight pound

"Your" Association 

For the past 28 years Dean J. G. Beard has ably served as an executive officer of 
e N. C. P. A. and to him pharmacy owes a deep debt of gratitude. His untiring efforts 

I behalf of you and your fellow pharmacists; his understanding of your problems; his 
dlity; his constant efforts to keep pharmacy abreast of other professions; and, above all, 
s laudable sense of fair play have all served to build the N. C. P. A. into one of the 
rongest and most effective pharmaceutical organizations in this country. 

When Dean Beard assumed the Secretaryship of the Association there was but a 
indful of members. By constant work — year by year — he gradually increased the mem- 
srship until there were more than 900 in its ranks. At the rate it has recently been 
[owing there will soon be 1,000 members for collective work and action in the Asso- 

Miss Noble has been closely associated with Dean Beard in this work for the past 
p years and it is primarily due to her efforts that the Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 
s achieved such an admirable record in the field of pharmaceutical publications. No 
ie in Chapel Hill is more familiar with the mechanics of the Journal than she ; there- 
ire, her advice and suggestions will be welcomed. 

In assuming the work as Secretary-Treasurer of the Association and later as Editor 
[ the Carolina Journal of Pharmacy, I do not plan any radical changes. Rather, it 

II be an honest endeavor to "carry on,"' fully realizing my obligations to the profession, 
an Beard, Miss Noble, and Professor Eose, together with a host of others, have set 

e standard high by their splendid work in the past. My hope is that I may discharge 
e duties of Secretary-Treasurer of the Association as effectively as they have been in 
e past. Your co-operation will help me reach that goal. 

In line with President Gattis's recommendation made at the Charlotte Convention 
at "The Secretary of the Association visit every drug store in North Carolina between 
mual meetings," I have started such visits. The first week of July I visited 43 drug 
ores in Fayetteville, Lumberton, Southport and nearby towns. Laurinburg, Rockingham 
id the "Sandhill" area were visited during the second week. These trips will be eon- 
trued until every section of North Carolina has been contacted. 

I shall welcome suggestions as to methods for improving the Association. It is "your" 
ssociation, so don't hesitate to send in constructive advice. — W. J. S. 

Sectional Meetings of the N. C. P. A. 

Over a period of years the Association more successful pharmacists and adapt 

s gone on record from time to time as those methods to our own businesses, 
voring sectional meetings of the N. C. It has been suggested that one day sec- 

A. between annual meetings. This plan tional meetings of the Association be held 

to be considered seriously now that busi- in each of the three divisions of the state: 

ss methods are changing so fast and such East. Central and West; that the meetings

to "our shells" and keep abreast of small for the annual meeting but large

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

ing. Such sectional meetings would give 
the President of the Association at least 
three opportunities to appear before the 
members in an official capacity each year. 
The plan of sectional meetings has met 

with enthusiastic reception by those me 
bers of the Association with whom 
Secretary has had an opportunity to disc* 
the matter. Your comments on this plan ;l 
solicited.— W. J. S. 

Pep for Your Credit Department 

Various credit surveys carried on during 
past years indicate that members of the 
teaching profession are high on the list of 
"good credit risks." Since thousands of 
North Carolina teachers will soon be back 
for their school year, it will be advisable to 
explore the possibilities of offering them 
credit in your store. 

I know a number of pharmacists in North 
Carolina who open their credit department 
on an unlimited scale to the local teachers 
and are well repaid for their efforts. Credit 
losses from this source are surprisingly low. 

One druggist in this State has several 
hundred small cards printed each year on 
which appears the name of his store together 
with an appropriate motto. Each card has 
five figure ones equally spaced at the bot- 

tom, each one being good for a five-c( 
drink when presented in person at the sto 
A one is punched from the card each ti! 
it is presented in payment of a five-cd 
purchase. By the time the card holder 1 
all five ones punched out, he or she w 
have gotten the habit of trading at yc 

The card together with a friendly let' 
offering the convenience of a monthly chai 
account is sent to all teachers within 
immediate trading area. A list of the lot 
teachers can be secured either from yd 
local newspaper or the Superintendent 

It 's up to you to decide who is to f 
this business — you or your competitor.!

We Meet Two Ph.D.'s 
Wiltshire Griffith and L. E. Hesterly, 
pharmacists with the Justus Pharmacy, of 
Hendersonville, recently gave an order for 
a rubber stamp to be used in stamping the 
labels of rubbing alcohol. When the stamp 
was returned from the manufacturer, the 
words Ph.D. appeared on the stamp oppo- 
site each of the pharmacist's names, rather 
than the Ph.G. requested. Mr. Griffith says 
that they haven't written their dissertation 
as yet but it will probably be on: "The 
Gastronomical Effect of Drinking Eubbing 
Alcohol. ' '

Drug Store Statistics 

By L. O. Heideman, Vice-President, A. C. Nielsen Co. 

(Note: — This address was presented at the 1940 convention of the N. C. P. A. The material 
as illustrated by the use of charts. It is impossible to reproduce the charts here so tables, out- 
ling the figures on which they were based, have been substituted wherever possible. — Ed.) 

The material which I am presenting is 
ised on facts. Facts that are available 
ily because certain manufacturers are 
ifficiently enterprising to contribute several 
illion dollars annually for their compila- 

(Note: The speaker listed the names of 
lese manufacturers at this point.) 

How the Nielsen Drug Index Operates 
In order to help you understand the facts 
am going to present, let me describe the 
jet-gathering process of the Nielsen serv- 

The Drug, Food, and Liquor industries 
squire a special fact-gathering system be- 
luse in these industries the manufacturer 
oes not sell directly to the consumer, but 
) the chain and wholesale warehouses, 
rhieh in turn ship to chain and indepen- 
lent retail stores. These retailers then sell 
5 the ultimate consumers. 

The inventories in the chain and whole- 
ale warehouses and in the retail stores are 

3 great, and they fluctuate so widely from 
lonth to month (often for reasons beyond 
!ie manufacturer's control), that the amount 
'f orders received or goods shipped at the 
victory, in any given month, is usually 
prite different from the amount of goods 
poved into the hands of consumers across 
(etail counters. 

! While this fact is appreciated in princi- 
ple by nearly everyone, the extent to which 
Consumer sales differ from factory sales is 
ot appreciated by most executives. 

Knowledge of Consumer Sales is Vital 

However, it is vitally important to know 
onsumer sales, for the company may be 
pending money for various advertising and 
lerchandising efforts to increase the flow 
'f its goods at the point of consumption; 
nd if there is no way of measuring the 
ow at this point, it is difficult and often 
mpossible to know promptly and accurately 

the profits resulting from each advertising 
or merchandising effort. 

If the manufacturer makes, on Jan. 1st, a 
definite change in any phase of his market- 
ing effort, his factory sales for the next 
few months will not ordinarily give a true 
indication of the extent to which the 
change affected his consumer sales. 

What we really need is a consumer sales 
curve. If, in addition to this consumer 
sales curve for the entire United States, we 
could have a separate curve, in the same 
form, for each territory, each city-size range, 
each store size, each consumer income class, 
etc., we could learn accurately and promptly 
the result of every move we make. 

And it would be ideal if we could have a 
similar set of consumer sales curves for each 
competitor, because we would then know 
more about each competitor's sales than he 
himself knows. By watching the true result 
of every competitive move, experience as tc 
profitable and unprofitable methods could be 
accumulated much more rapidly than would 
be possible if the manufacturer had to rely 
solely on his own experience. 

The Research Method Used 

The Nielsen Drug, Food, and Liquor In- 
dex measures consumer sales continuously 
(every 60 days) by detailed, personally con- 
ducted audits of invoices and inventories 
in 4,000 typical chain and independent 
stores. These stores have been selected in 
such a manner that their sales furnish a 
true cross-section of the sales of all stores 
in the drug, food, and package liquor fields. 
The U. S. Census of Distribution was used 
as the principal guide in selecting these 

Each territory, each city size, each store 
size, and each class of neighborhood is rep- 
resented in its proper proportion. The 
drug stores are located in 400 carefully 
selected cities, ranging in size from the 
largest to places of only a few hundred 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

inhabitants, and even to crossroad locations 
in rural sections. 

A contract has been made with each in- 
dependent store, and with the headquarters 
of each chain organization, under the terms 
of which A. C. Nielsen Company has the 
privilege of taking inventories and auditing 
the invoices for all goods coming into the 
store. We, in turn, compensate chain and 
independent retailers with cash and mar- 
keting information. 

The consumer sales figures obtained in 
this manner are expanded to a total for 
the entire country. The infinite care used 
in selecting and auditing stores has resulted 
in sales figures that are 98% accurate. This 
has been demonstrated conclusively by a 
great number and variety of checking meth- 

The high degree of accuracy is readily 
understandable when it is realized that the 
Nielsen drug stores serve the needs of 
3,500,000 consumers. Compare these cover- 
age figures with the usual range employed 
in consumer surveys (seldom more than 
10,000) and, also, recognize the fact that 
consumers can seldom give reliable data on 
quantities consumed ; whereas accurate store 
auditing can determine, with negligible 
error, the quantities sold. 

Determining Competitors' Sales 
One of the unique and valuable features 
of the Nielsen Index method is its ability 
to determine the sales of the client's com- 
petitors just as easily as it measures the 
sales of his own products. And the com- 
petitor 's sales are furnished in a form far 
more useful than if they had been obtained 
at his factor)/. By knowing his competi- 
tor's consumer sales, the manufacturer can 
judge the effectiveness of every move made 
by competitors. 

Principles of Store Auditing 
The table below illustrates the principles 
employed in determining consumer sales and 
other vital marketing data in Nielsen Index

Note that the dealer is not relied upo 
for any sales information. He merely save 
every invoice, demands a receipt or invoiq 
when making occasional cash purchases, an 
records any deal splitting. 

A special auditing method reveals instam 1 
ly any failure on the part of the dealer t 
keep invoices or to record split deals. Th' 
cash compensation paid to dealers is sum 
cient to insure considerable care in thej 
part of the work. 

The store auditing, while simple in prii 1 
eiple, is exceedingly complex in actual prao; 
tice. Our auditors must be familiar win 
all the tricks in buying, selling, and in 
voicing every type of drug, food, and liquet 
product. A highly trained, permanent, fiiu 
time staff is used for this Avork and fd

Summary of Principal Uses by 

One of the greatest benefits which retail- 
ers are deriving from the Nielsen Drug In- 
dex service arises from the intelligent use 
of this service by drug manufacturers. 

It is axiomatic that whenever a manu- 
facturer makes an erroneous decision in re- 
gard to marketing, there is waste. It is also 
true that this waste and financial loss are 
often borne not only by the manufacturer, 
but also by the wholesaler, the retailer, and 
the consumer. Therefore, the retailers are 
benefiited by any device which increases the 
accuracy of the executive decisions made by 
the manufacturers in matters of marketing 

Since executive decisions can be no more 
accurate than the facts on which they are 
based, it is obvious that a firm foundation 
of facts is of primary importance. 

The Nielsen Index service performs an 
almost infinite variety of functions for the 
drug manufacturer as shown by the sum- 
mary of principal uses below. 

1. To distribute advertising and merchan- 
dising effort correctly among various terri- 
tories, city sizes, store sizes, seasons, and 
consumer income levels. 

2. To detect marketing weaknesses and re- 
veal the result of every effort to correct 

3. To separate the profitable from the 
unprofitable, e.g., (a) Copy appeals; (b) 
Quantities of advertising; (c) Types of 
media ; (d) Deals, combinations, premiums, 
etc.; (e) Displays, etc., and (f) Radio pro- 

4. To provide advance warnings of sales 
declines, competitive inroads, need for 
changes in product, package, etc. 

5. To reveal the causes of sales declines 
and point toward the remedies. 

6. To detect gains or losses in dealer 

7. To determine the most profitable price 

8. To pre-determine the results of pro- 
posed promotional expenditures. This is 
done by testing in certain cities or areas. 

9. To reduce the risk in marketing new 

For an even simpler summary of the 
Nielsen Index, we turn to the words of Abra-

we are and whither we are tending, we could 
better judge what to do and how to do it. ' ' 

Nielsen Index Data for Drug 

Now let us use the Nielsen Index facts 
to aid drug retailers with their problems. 
All the facts gathered by the Nielsen staff 
are recorded on tabulating cards. Each 
card shows exactly what happened to one 
package size of one brand of one commodity 
in one Nielsen Index store for one bimonthly 

A typical card would show the following 
facts: (1) John Doe's Drug Store; (2) 
City of Evanston; (3) State of Illinois; 
(4) County of Cook; (5) Suburb of Chica- 
go; (6) Class "C" population; (7) Drug 
store; (8) Independent; (9) E«xall 
Agency; (10) Large size store; (11) 
Neighborhood location; (12) Upper income 
class; (13) Jan.-Feb., 1939; (14) Denti- 
frices; (15) "Blank" brand; (16) 50- 
cent size; and then would follow the data 
outlined in the table on page . 

The facts which will now be presented 
have been drawn from about 26,000,000 of 
these tabulating cards — a pile more than 
twelve times the height of the Empire State 
Building! To gather these facts, Nielsen 
Index field auditors have traveled the equiv- 
alent of 300 trips around the world! 

Also, let me emphasize the fact that A. 
C. Nielsen Company is absolutely impartial 
as between chains and independents, that 
we are impartial as between various brands 
and products, and that we hold no brief for 
any particular types of promotion or ad- 
vertising. Our task is to gather the facts 
and interpret them to the best of our 

Drug Store Sales 

By using the average figure of 1936 as a 
base of 100, the table below shows an in- 
dex of drug store consumer dollar sales for 
the years 1936, 1937, 1938, and 1939.

1939 = 106 

While the trend of sales has been gei 
ally upward during successive bi-mont 
periods of each year, sales during 1938 
1939 failed to equal the 1937 average. 1 
January-February 1940 figure is the higl 
January-February reported for the five ye 
shown in this table. 

In comparing independent drug and ch 
drug store consumer sales for the last f 
years, we find that, while independent di 
stores were increasing their share of 
total business during the first three years 
the comparison, there has been no sigr 
cant shift in the relative proportion of 
total dollar volume done by each type 
store during the past year.

Out-of -Stock Losses 
How much business is the average drug 
;ailer losing through his inability to sup- 
s' what the consumer wants ? We know 
t these losses must be considerable, be- 
use no retailer can hope to handle every- 
ing for which a consumer might ask. We 
I however, have a definite means of meas- 
jing the losses due to running out of stock ; 
[at is, due to failure to supply a product 
ich is ordinarily stocked in that store but 
kich is temporarily out-of-stock. 
The Nielsen Drug Index shows the per- 
ltage of independent stores which, while 
ndling an item regularly, are out-of- 
>ek at any given date. These figures are 
bwn for typical products in the follow- 
*■ table. While the trend is favorable, it 
uld seem that there is room for con- 
lerable improvement. In the food indus- 
', out-of-stock figures are considerably 
ver — probably due to a much higher aver- 
e order size placed by retailers.

The question has often arisen as to 
whether being out-of-stock on a certain 
brand or a certain size actually represents 
a loss to the retailer or whether the custo- 
mer merely accepts another brand or another 
size. In an elaborate consumer survey which 
we conducted in the Eastern states, an an- 
swer to this question was obtained. 

If the store is out of the desired size of 
the brand requested: 

28% of the housewives will take another 

12% will take another brand 

33% will go elsewhere to buy 

27% will defer buying 

This means that the retailer loses 60% 
(27 + 33) of his possible or immediate 

If the store does not stock the brand or 
is out of the brand requested : 

22% of the housewives will take another 

46% will go elsewhere to buy 

32% will defer buying 

This represents a loss of 78% (46 + 32) 
of his possible or immediate sales. 

No retailer can be expected to handle 
every item that customers may request. How- 
ever, adequate stocks of fast-moving sizes 
of popular brands would enable retailers 
to retain at least a portion of the possible 
or immediate sales that are lost due to out- 
of-stock conditions. 

Variety Store Competition 
The drug industry has been complaining 
about competition from limited price variety

stores. Since the Nielsen Index has no 
statistics on this subject, we must turn to 
other sources. 

In considering only the drug and toiletry 
sales of drug stores, department stores, and 
limited price variety stores, we find that the 
gains made by the limited price variety 
stores in these lines have probably been

Drug stores have increased their share of 
the total drug and toiletries volume by the 
same amount as have the limited price 
variety stores during the past six years. 
It is easy, however, to see how the variety 
stores could create the impression of having 
made greater inroads, because obviously 
they concentrate their drug and toiletries 
business on a very few types of "pre-sold" 
goods. The introduction of sizes larger 
than the 10c sizes in these stores may also 
be a contributing factor. 

It has also been contended that the varie- 
ty stores cater to a different class of trade 
than do drug stores and therefore the drug- 
gist is limited in his opportunity to obtain 
the business that goes to the variety store. 
The following table (based on a recent 
Nielsen consumer survey) shows that variety 
store customers come largely from the lower 
income groups, and these are the buyers to 
whom the small sizes make their greatest 
appeal. However, both independent and 
chain drug stores reach a higher percentage 
of lower income families than do the variety 
stores, so it can be concluded that reasons 
other than the income classes of families 
served by each type of store must be re- 
sponsible for the druggists' failure to cash 
in on this business.

Variety store customers must travel grea"j 
distances than drug store customers to 
their shopping. This is readily understaii 
able when you consider that there are oi 
about 12,000 variety stores compared w: 
about 60,000 drug stores.

Based on these tables, drug stores haj 
an advantage over variety stores in reachii' 
a higher percentage of consumers in all 1 
come classes and also in store locations. 

Variety stores apparently have the a' 
vantage over drug stores from a merely 
dising standpoint as they are preferred 
consumers because of price, small sizes, a.jj 

It is my opinion that these advantag 
are not insurmountable as the problem prd 
ably resolves into educating consumers 
the fact that these conditions can also 
found in drug stores. 

Consumer Buying Habits and 

The trends which I have shown you 
far have all been obtained from reguli 
Index data. In order to secure addition 
information that might be helpful to I 
tailers, our company makes a comprehensi' 
consumer survey in some section of t' 
country each year in an effort to obta 
the reactions of the buying public in rega', 
to their purchasing habits, why they tj 
certain stores, why they stop trading wi 1 
certain stores and similar information. 

In reviewing this material, please bej 
in mind that this survey was made in ■ 
tain Eastern states, and while some of t t 
facts would be applicable to any section 
of country, others may serve only as 
guide or as an indication of points th 
should be watched in attempting to impro 
your own store operations.

Readership of Retail Drug Store 
I In the area studied, 26% of the families 
|ated that they read drug store advertis- 
mg regularly, 28% seldom read the adver- 
jisements, and 46% stated that they never 
read drug store advertising. We feel that 
pe families who say they seldom read drug 
Idvertising should be considered as non- 
feaders rather than readers. Readership in- 
Ireases as incomes decrease, with 31% of 
tie families in the lower income group read- 
jig drug store advertising regularly as com- 
lared with 14% in the upper income group. 

The Influence of the Physician 
I The average family, in the area studied, 
[ses 4.1 prescriptions per year. This varies 
pom 5.6 prescriptions per year in the upper 
pcome families to 3.3 prescriptions per 
iear in the lower income families. 

The number of families who stated that 
o prescriptions had been obtained during 
he past year varied from 12% of the upper 
icome families to 37% of the lower in- 
ome families. These figures, no doubt, re- 
ect to a certain extent the effect of the 
octor leaving medicine with the family, 
diich may not have been considered as an 
ctual prescription by the family. Inas- 
much as 10% of the families obtained medi- 
ine in this manner, the number of prescrip- 
ions obtained per year is probably low, as 
jaeh time the doctor leaves medicine the 
eed for obtaining a perscription at a drug 
tore is eliminated. 

That the prescription business is eon- 
entrated in a relatively small number of 
|amilies is shown by the fact that 21% 
f the families buy an average of 11 pre- 
options per family per year and account 
or 62% of all prescriptions written. 

When writing a prescription, the doctor 
3commends a specific drug store in 29% 
[f the cases, and his advice is "usually or 
tways" followed in 85% of these cases. 

Roughly, therefore, it may be concluded 
lat the attitude of the doctor definitely 
etermines about one fourth of your pre- 
option business. 

As a point of interest, nine out of ten 
:ores recommended in this area were inde- 
endent stores. 

With these facts in hand, you can decide 
ow much effort to expand in cultivating 
our relations with the doctors. 

Reasons for Preferring Stores Used 

The tAventy most important reasons, listed 
in the order of their importance, volun- 
teered by housewives for preferring the 
stores used regularly are shown in the fol- 
lowing table: (1) Convenient Location; (2) 
Regular Low Price; (3) Reliable; (4) Per- 
sonnel; (5) Store Service; (6) Doctor 
Recommended; (7) Habit; (8) Variety; 
(9) Special Sales; (10) Quality Goods; 
(11) Likes Brands; (12) Good Delivery; 
(13) Friend Recommended; (14) Good 
Phone Service; (15) Credit; (16) Clean; 
(17) Prescription Store; (18) Fresh Goods; 
(19) Small Sizes (5-10e) ; and (20) One 

In considering these reasons, the fact 
must be kept in mind that certain condi- 
tions are expected or accepted by con- 
sumers, i.e., cleanliness, prescription store, 
etc. As long as these conditions exist, or 
are present, the average consumer may not 
consider them important as a reason for 
preferring a store. However, if the condi- 
tion does not exist, the consumer may use- 
it as a basis for a complaint against the 
store, as a reason for stopping the use of" 
the store, or as a reason for refusing to* 
trade with the store. 

It should also be noted that consumers 
consider allied reasons, such as personnel 
and store service (which is dependent to a 
large extent on personnel) as separate and 
distinct functions.

Herb Specialist 

The N. C. Board of Pharmacy, together 
with the Buncombe County Medical Society, 
recently brought to a successful conclusion 
the case of State vs. Goforth in the Bun- 
combe County Superior Court, Asheville. 
This case marked the first time that the 
Board of Pharmacy has actively co-operated 
with a medical society in investigating and 
bringing to justice an individual charged 
with "practicing medicine without a li- 
cense.' ' 

Three days were recmired for the case ; 
the defendant using 23 witnesses and the 
State 17. Witnesses for the State testified 
that the defendant had prepared an herb 
tonic represented as having curative value 
in the treatment of cancer and tumors and 
had supplied ' ' Dynamite Pills ' ' in con- 
junction with the tonic. A number of 
State witnesses testified that they had pur- 

chased the tonic at $12.50 per bottle & 
twelve ounces. 

The defendant testified that he had n(d 
attended a medical school, that he was 1 
a registered pharmacist in North Carol: tf 
that he did not attempt to diagnose I 
prescribe, but kept a supply of speciij 
prepared herb remedies for those ij 
wanted them for "general condition I 
The defendant further testified that he I 
not know whether his tonics were good I 
any ailment ; that all he knew about I 
tonics was what other people told hi 
Additional evidence as brought out durl 
the trial revealed that the defendant 1 
had 10,000 testimonial booklets printed J 
widely distributed in Western North Ca 

Conviction of the Herb Specialist canl 
with it the following sentence : A suspeml 
sentence of two years on the chain-gangj 
fine of two hundred dollars later chanJ 
to cost of the case — $209.00; and a sentej 
requiring him to destroy all literature, I 
vertising matter, apparatus, supplies, si 
bottles of herb tonic ; and to close his pll 
of business for a term of five years. If I 
fails to comply with the above, he is| 
begin serving his two-year suspended si 
fence immediately. — W. J. S. 

Violation of Narcotic Act 

Joseph Wolfson, registered pharmacist 
New York and unsuccessful applicant 
license in this state, was recently convici 
in Federal Court, Asheville, for violationj 
The Harrison Narcotic Act. Evide; 
brought out during the trial showed i 
Wolfson had purchased 94 gallons of pa| 
goric during the past year and had been 
tailing it indiscriminately at $0.20 an ou} 
or $3.00 per pint. 

Wolfson 's sentence of a year and a 6 
was suspended on condition that he cl 
his store and return to New York. 
Asheville papers referred to Wolfso:

Speakeasy. "— W. J. S.

A Friend Whose Memory We Cherish 

We were in Greensboro a few days ago 
d we made it a special point to drop by 

C. Fordham 's Drug Store. We always 
joy talking to "C. C, " but this time we 
nt especially to see the portrait of his 
ther. This picture was painted shortly 
per Mr. Fordham 's death and has been 
bupying a prominent place in the phar- 
itcy for quite a while, but we had not had 
| opportunity of seeing it. It is a won- 
jirful likeness of the elder Mr. Fordham 
d it brought tears to our eyes when we 
)ked at it. We remember meeting Mr. 
■rdham just a short while after we formed 
r connection with this office and through 
p years he was always such a sincere 
lend. We are glad that there is hanging 

his store such a splendid portrait of him 
it does you good to look at it ! 

The Third Generation 

Dr. John A. McNeill owned a drug store 
Shallotte many years ago which was 
erated under the name of McNeill and 
n — the son was Pharmacist Geo. R. Mc- 
jill, who later moved the store to White- 
le. It has been operated in recent years 
McNeill's Drug Store. This June the 

son of Mr. McNeill, II, graduated in phar- 
macy at the State University and a few 
days later passed the examinations of the 
State Board of Pharmacy. This young man 
bears the name of his grandfather, John 
Albert McNeill. We had the pleasure of 
talking to the graduate's father during the 
Commencement season and w r e don 't know 
Avhether the son or the father was prouder 
of the fact that another McNeill was ready 
to begin the practice of pharmacy. The 
youngest McNeill pharmacist is now asso- 
ciated with his father and brother in the 
Whiteville pharmacy which proudly bears 
the name of McNeill and Sons. We wonder 
how many other drug stores in the State 
have pharmacists of the third generation 
connected with them. 

We Want to Know You! 

One of the greatest pleasures we have is 
meeting the families of our friends among 
the N. C. P. A. and T. M. A. Every now 
and then someone drops into the office be- 
cause such friends have asked them to come 
to see us. We are always delighted to have 
such visits. A few days ago Mrs. A. N. 
Martin, of Roanoke Rapids, came in and 
we only wish that she had had longer to 
stay Avith us. Then later in the week we 
had the opportunity of meeting the lovely 
daughter of Mr. C. A. Raysor, of Asheville. 
Such occurrences are delightful incidents 
in the work-a-day week. We only wish that 
more of such guests would come our way. 
We are always so glad to have you ! 

Following in Their Sires' Footsteps 

We have just been looking over the appli- 
cations for admission to the School of Phar- 
macy next fall and we were struck by the 
large number of sons of pharmacists who 
have chosen pharmacy as their life work. 
We think it is splendid when a son or a ' 
daughter learns to love the profession to 
which their parents have given so many 
years and elects to make that calling their 
life work also.

Edward Spease has resigned his position 
as Dean of the College of Pharmacy of 
Western Reserve University in Cleveland, 
Ohio, to accept a full-time post in the 
Chicago headquarters of the N. A. R. D. 
It is expected that Dean Spease will begin 
his new work about Sept. 1st, and he will 
devote his talents to the promotion of inter- 
professional relations. The new officer en- 
joys a national reputation for his advanced 
thinking on pharmaceutical subjects, his 
work in the field of hospital pharmacy being 
particularly outstanding. His department 
at Reserve was the first to offer graduate 
degrees in hospital pharmacy. He has been

Is There a Fifth Column in Your 
Drug Store? 

Weed out your own "fifth columns" 
with self-discipline. This is the admoni- 
tion of the N. A. E. D. Journal in a leading 
editorial in its July 4 issue. "When the 
owner of a drug store allows outside inter- 
ests to divert too much of his time from 

management of the store; when he has 
money to discount current bills but reac 
for his pocket whenever a pair of frecl 
ivory cubes rattle; when he is more in 
ested in the newspaper or pulp maga2i 
than in customers; when he hasn't a sr 
and a courteous word for people who c<| 
to spend money with him; when his vaJ 
leads to an obsession for publicity and 
honorary offices which robs his store of 
time and thought; then, indeed, is a ■ 
store variety of 'fifth column' at worl 
declares the Journal. "If he is too voe 
erous about his independence, too into! 
ant of criticism and suggestions, he hi 
self is plotting his own downfall, and j 
independence is being undermined fr, 
within." There is food for thought in tl 

Such Gifts Mean a Lot 

The Library of the School of Pharma 
at the State University acknowledges wi 
grateful appreciation the gift of C. 
Eubanks, of Chapel Hill, of a copy of t 
2nd Edition of the National Dispensato 
published in 1879. The Library was ve, 
anxious to secure the volume in order 
complete its files of this dispensatory. 

There are quite a few other books need 
by the Library and we hope very much th 
other pharmacists will consider the Schd 
when they are disposing of items from thej 
collections of journals and books.

job of displaying them. 

•". Make every effort to reduce the losses 
which result from being out-of-stock on 
brands, types, and sizes. You can reduce 
these out-of-stock losses not only by better 
stock control but also by placing larger 
orders — which, in general, I think it would 
be safe to do on the larger brands. Larger 
stocks will also permit better displays.

Postgraduate Training in Pharmacy 

Refresher Courses," "Druggists' Business 
iferenees" and similar meetings of regis- 
?d pharmacists for postgraduate work in 
rmacy are being successfully sponsored 

pharmaceutical organizations through- 

the country today. To this program 

bringing practicing pharmacists up-to- 

je on the neAver modes of medication and 

liliarizing them with recent advances in 

field of pharmacy, I give my unquali- 

?ew of us realize how fast we can get 

in the march of progress. This is par- 
ilarly true with so many advances being 
le in the field of organic pharmaceutical 
mistry at the present time. It was but 
hort time ago that mandelie acid was 
ounced to the drug trade to be followed 
sulfanilamide, sulfapyridine and a host 
related compounds in rapid succession. 
lay, sulfathiazole is being supplied us 

the first time. Are you prepared to 
wer questions from your physician on 
I product? 

j'here are those among us who say there 
iio need for such a program ; that we are 
lag in a "bottle to bottle" age. To these 
luviduals I say that there is a greater 

need today for an understanding of drugs 
and their action than ever before. The 
average graduate from the medical schools 
of today receives less instruction in official 
drug medication than did his predecessor 
of 25 years ago, thus the pharmacist is in 
position to make himself indispensable to 
the physician. The successful pharmacist 
recognizes this situation and keeps himself 
informed not only on the newer drugs but 
the older ones as well. 

If a sufficient number of druggists in this 
state are interested in a two- or three-day 
postgraduate course in pharmacy, arrange- 
ments can be made through the Extension 
Division of the State University to make 
such a program possible. You have but to 
indicate your willingness to participate in 
this work to make it available. As former 
X. C. P. A. President Suttlemyre stated in 
1938: "Physicians do postgraduate work, 
farmers have short courses in extension 
work, most trades have some plan of meet- 
ing together for action upon their problems. 
Why should not druggists devise some plan 
of getting together for comparison of views, 
and making acquaintance with up-to-date 
points touching their everyday problems." —

Are the Days of Polypharmacy Past? 

We think of pharmacy and medicine to- 
day as having advanced a long way from 
the practices of the Egyptians of some four 
thousand or more years ago. In certain 
respects, however, very little progress seems 
to have been made. 

The old custom of prescribing a great 
number of substances to be compounded in- 
to a single preparation for the patient to 
take has its counterpart in many of our 
present-day prescriptions. 

The following is an example, and its 
kind may be found on file at almost any 
"Corner" Drug Store : 

Tinct. Benzoin Comp dr. iss 

Creo-Terpin Comp. 

Waterbury's Comp. with 

Creosote aa oz. iss 

Syrup Cocillana Comp oz. i 

Angier's Emulsion q.s oz. vi 

When writing a prescription like this the 
physician, as a rule, does not think about 
how many shots he is loading into his gun. 
On the labels of these five preparations are 
listed a total of forty different ingredients, 
each one to become a shot in the finished 
prescription to shoot at the ailment of the 

A list of the separate ingredients in- 
cludes: alcohol, chloroform, creosote, terpin 
hydrate, calcium glycerophosphate, sodium 
glycerophosphate, syrup, petroleum oil, cal- 
cium hypophosphite, sodium hypophosphite, 
sodium benzoate, glycerin, acacia, water, 
liver extract, pancreas extract, malt extract, 
wild cherry extract, extract nux vomica, iron 
phosphate, manganese peptonate, guaiacol, 
aromatics, calcium lactate, iron and am- 
monium citrate, sherry wine, corn syrup, 
dionin, tinct. euphorbia, syrup wild lettuce, 
tinct. cocillana, cascarin, menthol, antimony 
and potassium tartrate, fldext. squill, fldext. 
senega, benzoin, aloe, storax, tolu balsam. 

The conditions which lead to the use of 
so many ingredients in a single prescription 
may be different but the result is the same 
as that of long ago. 

Physicians of today have spent eight or 
ten years in the study of medicine, and yet 
they are writing many of this type of pre- 
scription. Their failure to write for U. 
S. P. and N. F. preparations seems to indi- 

cate clearly that the manufacturers ; 
doing a better job detailing doctors til 
the pharmacists. 

Perhaps, enough is being said about §1 
ting physicians to prescribe official mej 
cines, but not enough is being done about 
There is no reason to believe that the d 
tors will not be glad to have the re1 
pharmacists call upon them in the inteii 
of official products and a more intellig 
public health service. — I. W. R. 

Your Prescription Department — a 
Asset or Liability?* 

By W. J. Smith 

During the past year the North Carol 
Board of Pharmacy has made it possible 
me to visit every drug store in Westi 
North Carolina and in so doing the Boj 
gave me the unusual opportunity of 
serving the stores of hundreds of druggi 
in this state. This paper, therefore, is p 
sented with the idea that some of my 
servations may be of value to those of J 
who do not have the opportunity to get 
and see what your fellow' druggist is do 
or failing to do. 

The title of this paper, "Your Presci| 
tion Department — An Asset or Liability 
does sound a little unusual, especially si: 
we assume that the prescription departm* 
is one of the few remaining assets a ph 
macist has left now that the drug field 
been encroached upon by so many rliffer> 
types of businesses. Y T et, I have been 
peatedly told by sincere pharmacists t 
they would immediately discontinue tli 
prescription department if they could 
assured that companion sales would not 
affected by such a move. This is surpris 
since the prescription department is I 
sidered the major reason for their being 
the drug business and is the one departnU 
of the entire store than can be develot 
without fear of competition from the g 
ceryman, the filling station proprietor, 

Basically, however, the situation is no 
serious one as it is essentially a quest 
of dollars and cents. Many pharmacists 
whom I have talked lament the fact 1 
they have to carry such a high stock of hi

iced specialities to fill an ever-decreasing 
imber of prescriptions each day. They are 
a loss as how to cope -with the situation 
id wind up by figuring ways to eliminate 
e one department that offers more possi- 
lities for development than any other in 
e entire store. 

If we are to survive as a professional 

oup and continue to use our knowledge to- 

irds the betterment of public health, it 

hooves each and every one of us to direct 

our energies towards the development 

d extension of the one department that 

n and will prove to be our salvation in the 

ug business. Some of you have already 

Cognized the tremendous importance of the 

ascription department in your stores and 

ye acted accordingly. Others, I fear, 

e neglected this department to the extent 

t it has become a liability rather than an 


ngineers tell us that any problem, when 

uced to paper, no longer becomes a prob- 

io let's examine the Asset-Liability 

stion. On one hand we have a live-wire 

aggist who keeps himself well informed 

to what the medical profession is pre- 

jibing and buys accordingly ; who keeps 

prescription department clean and or- 

•ly at all times ; who details his physi- 

ns regularly; and who never passes up 

opportunity to elevate himself in a pro- 

sional way. On the other hand Ave have 

lividuals who spend more of their time 

tching their competitors than they do 

rards improvement of their own estab- 

Iments. Too many of our progressive 

irmaeists have already proven that phy- 

jians are ready and eager to prescribe to 

the blame at their doorstep. It's rather 

problem which we pharmacists must face 

1 successfully solve if we are to continue 

businesses in a profitable manner. 

dention might be made at this time of a 

nber of drug organizations in Western 

rth Carolina that have and are still car- 

ag on an effective campaign to increase 

ir prescription business. I refer to Por- 

Drug Store, of Concord, Tainter's of 

rion, Salley's Drug Store, of Asheville, 

I Bennett's Drug Store, of Bryson City. 

pre are others that might be cited but 

ft four stores just mentioned are doing 

i unusually good job of selling "Phar- 

macy" to the medical profession and the 
general public. Some of these organiza- 
tions fill 75 to 100 prescriptions every day 
and they do so because someone has realized 
the potentialities of the prescription depart- 
ment and developed it wisely. Each organi- 
zation has developed the department through 
somewhat different approaches but one dom- 
inant fact is outstanding. The professional 
side of pharmacy has been emphasized in 
each instance. 

Undoubtedly, the success of any given 
prescription department depends largely on 
the personnel. I cannot emphasize this 
point too strongly. Here, more than in any 
other place in the store, your cheap help 
will prove to be the more expensive help in 
the long run. Obtain the services of a well- 
trained pharmacist with plenty of pep and 
personality, and you are well on your way 
towards making your prescription depart- 
ment an asset not only to your organization 
but to your community as well. If you han- 
dle all the details of this particular depart- 
ment, keep yourself well informed as to 
what the more successful pharmacists are 
doing and direct your own business along 
similar lines. 

Special attention should be paid towards 
the cleanliness of your prescription depart- 
ment. Clean up, brighten up, lighten up 
until you can honestly advertise your pre- 
scription department as being "Hospital 
Clean." A little elbow grease judiciously ex- 
pended from day to day will pay rich divi- 
dends. Nothing impresses a physician more 
than to walk into a prescription department 
and find a clean, orderly arranged stock of 
drugs, chemicals, and specialities with a 
qualified individual in charge. 

It seems needless to mention the need for 
an adequate stock of equipment and refer- 
ence books, yet we have drug stores in this 
state that are sadly lacking in these two 
important and necessary items. Three books, 
the latest editions of the IT. S. P., the 3ST. F., 
and the Receipt Book should be in every 
pharmacist's library. The cost of the three 
books — $15.00 — will be one of the best in- 
vestments you can make towards building 
the professional side of your business. A 
number of our pharmacists have been agitat- 
ing for the enactment of legislation which 
will define minimum equipment for a drug

store. This is a worthy objective and I 
hope that such legislation soon may be se- 
cured in this state. 

Distinguish your pharmacists from the rest 
of your employees by having them wear 
uniforms with the approved pharmacist in- 
signia of academic green on white. One 
of the leading manufacturers of professional 
uniforms of New York has just created a 
smartly styled yet practical pharmacist's 
coat with insignia at the suggestion of 
Ralph Bienfant, Professor of Pharmacog- 
nosy at the University of Oklahoma. There 
is a need for a standardized professional 
coat for pharmacists; a coat that will dis- 
tinguish them in such a manner that the 
public will readily recognize their pharma- 
ceutical character. Outstanding educators 
throughout the country, such as Dean Elmer 
L. Hammond, of the University of Missis- 
sippi, have expressed their interest in the 
establishment of a standard professional 
coat for pharmacists. I heartily endorse 
such a coat and hope that it will meet with 
enthusiastic reception in this state. 

Inventory, date and arrange your pre- 
scription stock in a systematic manner. You 
must have some plan whereby an item can 
be located instantly without having to 
waste valuable time in hunting for it. Re- 
member, the physician and the patient are 
both in a hurry and neither of them will 
tolerate unnecessary delay. Since we now 
have a large number of specialities to stock, 
it is wise to date them and see that they 
do not remain in stock after a reasonable 
period if demand has not developed. Occa- 
sionally, a gentle reminder to your local 
physicians will help to move the merchan- 
dise. If this fails, then the item should 
be returned to the manufacturer for ex- 
change or credit. All the reputable phar- 
maceutical houses are glad to do this as 
their success depends on the movement of 
their products from your store; not in hav- 
ing their products become "shelf-warmers." 
Always attempt to fill the prescription. If 
you are out of an item, call your nearby 
pharmacist before turning the prescription 
down. The co-operation which you will re- 
ceive from your fellow druggist will be in 
direct proportion to that which you offer 
when he is in need of merchandise.

Trends in Pharmacy* 
By Ralph W. Clark, Ph.D., 
Pharmacy Service Department, 
Merck and Co. 

The prescription department is important 
pcause it is the distinguishing feature of a 
rug store and because of the profit that 
ay be derived from it and related depart - 
ients in the store. 

I Pharmacy has progressed hand in hand 
(ith medicine, chemistry and other sciences 
I isolating and synthesizing active prin- 
ples and presenting them in the form of 
bble, palatable and uniform pharmaceuti- 
cs of established merit. Many worthwhile 
pntributions to this development have been 
lade by the pharmaceutical and medicinal 
pemical industry. This trend, which repre- 

tl-nts progress based upon research, makes 
necessary for druggists who intend to de- 
lop their prescription departments to be 
ill informed on both official and non- 
pcial products. They must use this infor- 
ation to truly evaluate the products in- 
plved from the point of view of the phy- 
Jcian and the benefits to be derived by his 

Official preparations are now subject to 
fore rapid change than in the past. The 
:ruggist who intends to make professional 
pntacts must be acquainted with the prog- 
^ss being made in this field as well as the 
lileidoscopie advance which is taking place 
I nonoffieial medication. This can be done 
y adding to his basic knowledge obtained 
college or experience, by reading current 
ledical and pharmaceutical journals as well 
ji the house organs of wholesalers and man- 
J.acturers. It is also essential to co-operate 
lith the detail men of the ethical manu- 


|* Presented at the 1940 Convention of the 
C. P. A. 

As the ratio between official and non- 
official preparations now used in compound- 
ing prescriptions is approximately fifty- 
fifty, the wise druggist balances his promo- 
tional program accordingly. He may adopt 
a program such as becoming more familiar 
with one official and one non-official prod- 
uct per week. Having become better in- 
formed on a number of products, he can 
then use this information to make profes- 
sional contacts with the medical and dental 
professions. When this is done, there is an 
increase in prescription volume regardless 
of the size or location of the drug store. 

Druggists will agree to the statement that 
increased volume comes as the reward for 
plan and purpose. They also realize that 
they have a right to exercise their profes- 
sional knowledge to influence the physician 
to prescribe various preparations or brands, 
which they believe are to the advantage of 
his patients. Some alert druggists carry 
out such a program to promote their pre- 
scription departments. They find very little 
competition from other druggists, however, 
because most druggists intend to but just 
don't do it. 

There are many other factors involved in 
increasing prescription volume. The one 
most commonly emphasized is the necessity 
of sustained effort. Prescription depart- 
ment appearance, and the attitude of the 
druggist himself are two more important 
factors which may be used to create a favor- 
able impression. 

It sounds reasonable that if a number of 
prescriptions are being compounded in a 
moderately good or even poor location an in- 
crease in volume will follow if the location 
is improved. This is precisely what hap- 
pens when a prescription department is 
modernized. The increase will not be phe- 
nomenal in all eases, but an improved pre- 
scription department is one of the factors 
involved in increasing prescription volume. 
The trend is towards semi-open prescrip- 
tion departments. In them, the display of 
drugs, chemicals and pharmaceutical equip- 
ment may be regulated to meet the drug- 
gist's requirements. We are prepared to 
help you modernize your prescription de- 
partment and we invite you to write us or 
discuss your problems with our representa- 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

tives. Worthwhile improvements may be 
made at comparatively low cost. 

The druggist's personality and attitude 
as reflected in giving or not giving a 
prompt, courteous and intelligent service is 
another important factor in successful pre- 
scription department operation. Depend- 
able pharmaceutical service rendered to a 
physician and his patients inspires confi- 
dence in the druggist and his store. Con- 
fidence is synonymous with success. Confi- 
dence is gained when the drug store reflects 
professional responsibility. The drug store 
expecting to do a good prescription volume 
must stand for quality and dependability. 
The labels of well-known and reputable con- 
cerns, displayed on the druggist's shelves, 
add prestige to the store and impress the 
physician and his patients that the drug 
store is a source of dependable service and 

Druggists occupy a strategic public health 
position. What the druggist needs most is a 
realization on the part of the public and 
members of public health professions, and 
particularly of in pharmacy of the 
essential public health position occupied by 
druggists. Those druggists who have made 
good use of their strategic position have 
shown an increased prescription volume, 
while those who have not are showing a 
loss. You may show an improved prescrip- 
tion volume if you keep up-to-date on the 
trends in pharmacy and recognize it as a 
public health profession. Improved financial 
success will follow a well-conceived program, 
based on the operation and promotion of a 
prescription department as a public health 

Protect Your Narcotics 

Narcotic robberies in this state have 
tripled in the past six months ; the increase 
probably being due to addicts who find it 
much more difficult to obtain their usual 
supply from illicit channels now' that war 
has interrupted the regular movement of 
narcotic drugs from Europe and Asia. 
Forged narcotic prescriptions are also on 
the rise. Recently one of the Federal Nar- 
cotic Agents stationed in N. C. picked up 
57 forged prescriptions, all forged on the 
same physician. 

As a special precaution, we suggest that 

you closely examine every narcotic prescri 
tion before filling same. Above all, ke< 
your narcotics securely locked, preferab 
in the safe.

iRequirements for Labeling Drugs 

Below is information concerning the 
juirements for the labeling of drugs 
pensed by the druggists, furnished by 
sociate Chemist, W. A. Queen, of the 
partment of Agriculture, Raleigh, North 
rolina, who has charge of the enforcement 
the drug part of the new Food, Drug 
d Cosmetic Law. 

(1) All drugs sold in package form must 
ir a label containing the name and place 

business of the manufacturer, packer or 
tributor and an accurate statement of 
> quantity of contents of the package. 

(2) A drug, the name of which is recog- 
;ed in an official compendium, may be sold 

under the compendium name without list- 
ing the active ingredients, except such active 
ingredients as are required by section 15 (d) 
of the North Carolina Food, Drug and Cos- 
metic Act to appear on the label, if it con- 
forms to the standards laid down in such 
compendium and is packaged and labeled as 
prescribed therein. If the drug differs in 
strength, quality or purity from that set 
forth in such compendium, it is necessary 
to state on the label wherein and to what 
extent the drug differs from the standard; 
and no substitution for any ingredient is 
permissible, even though such substitution 
may be indicated on the label. 

(3) In case of a drug not designated 
solely by a name recognized in an official 
compendium the label, in addition to the 
required information set forth in (1) above, 
must carry a list of all the active ingredients 
contained in the drug, and show the quan- 
tity or proportion of the drugs listed in and 
required by section 15 (e) of the North 
Carolina Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. The 
law requires that the drug be sold under its 
common or usual name, if any there be. and 
each ingredient is required to be listed 
under its common or usual name also. If a 
drug recognized in an offi ial compendium 
is used as an ingredient of another drug, 
such drug may be listed as an ingredient 
under its compendium name without the 
necessity of giving a list of its own in- 
gredients, except such drugs as it may con- 
tain, which are listed and required to be 
stated on the label, in quantity and pro- 
portion, by section 15 (d) of the North 
Carolina Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. 

Any drug, of course, of whatever charac- 
ter is required to bear a label which sets 
forth adequate directions for use and ade- 
quate warnings against use in pathological 
conditions or by children where its use may 
be dangerous to health, and against unsafe 
dosage or methods of duration of adminis- 
tration or application. 

For a complete understanding of the la- 
beling requirements of drugs, it is suggested 
that section 15 in its entirety be read in 
conjunction with sections 2 and 14 of the 

Board of Pharmacy Examinations 

The next examinations of the North Caro- 
lina Board of Pharmacy will be held in 
Chapel Hill on November 19, 1940. Full 
information concerning the examinations 
may be obtained from Secretary-Treasurer 
F. W. Hancock, Oxford, N. C.

News of Interest About North Carolina 
Druggists and Drug Stores 

FLASH: Other material of pressing im- 
portance has made it necessary for us to 
abbreviate our news columns this month. 
It has also caused us to delete our "pet 
gossipy section" after it was all written. 
During the past year we have enjoyed partic- 
ularly editing our "talkative page" and we 
like to think that some of our readers have 
looked forward to its appearance. It is for 
these reasons that we are explaining why it 
is not included this month. — A. N. 

A. 0. Mooneyham, Asheville pharmacist, 
has purchased the Parker Hotel from the 
Wachovia Bank and Trust Company. Mr. 
Mooneyham plans to open a drug store in 
the building and to remodel the hotel. 

Designed to give quick service, Bobbitt's 
College Pharmacy of Winston-Salem had 
its formal opening on Thursday, July 18. 
The owner, L. M. Bobbitt, estimated that 
5,000 attended the formal opening at which 
time candy, cigars, sodas and various other 
prizes were given away. A feature of the 
new store is the outside lighting system. 
Floodlights located on telephone poles on 
the outside of the store prominently display 
the corner at night. E. W. Rollins is in 
charge of the store. 

The Liberty Drug Store of Winston- 
Salem has been sold to C. H. Allen of that 
city. Mr. Allen has moved the stock to his 
store, Allen's Modern Drug Store, located

of Asheville. 

Theodore MeKeithan, 23-year-old nj 
deliveryman for Ray Drug Store, Wins 
Salem, was robbed recently of $22 in i 
appeared to be a well-planned hold-up. 
was attempting to deliver an order of 
and candy and had the "change for 
as asked for by the person placing 
order. Police were told a telephone order 
placed for two bottles of beer, a pieci 
candy and change for $20 to be sent 
120 Westdale Avenue. MeKeithan said 
when lie got to the address a "black, he; 
set man" was waiting on the sidewalk st 
The man cursed him for being so lonj 
making the delivery and snatched the poc 
book when he took it out of his poeke 
make change. Moral : Keep your moiie; 
the register unless you personally k 
your customer. 

J. C. Murphy has changed the name

M. & M. Drug Store, Waynesville. C. 
Mock is now associated with the store.

A. Nicholson of Troy is to be eon- 
blated upon the use of the wording 
giber North Carolina Pharmaceutical 
Delation" on his letterheads. After 
fng seen Mr. Nicholson's letterhead it 
irred to me that few' of us pharmacists 
any visible means to show our mem- 
hip in the Association. Let's show the 
lie we are progressive and support or- 
ized pharmacy. 

iek Chemical Company, makers of 
ed Yaporub and Vatronol, recently pur- 
sed a "substantial" interest in Vitamins 
s, Inc. Plans call for "an intensinca- 
of the aggressive sales and advertising 
?ram" for Vitamins Plus which has 
l effectively promoted since 1937. It is 
ught that possibly Vick may shift Vita- 

mins Plus into a front-line position in their 
"cold cure program." 

Recently a tornado struck the home of 
E. L. Rigsbee in West Durham and par- 
tially destroyed it.

Taylor Drug Store of Durham owned by 
J. C. Taylor was broken into during the 
night of August 9 and $9 in quarters stolen 
from an electric current box. This is the 
second time the store has been broken into 
in the past two months. The previous 
break-in yielded between $25 and $30 from 
a pintable. 

M. B. Melvin and J. C. Brantley, Jr., 
of Raleigh enjoyed a brief vacation recently. 
Mr. Melvin visited the World's Fair in New 
York while Mr. Brantley was angling for 
deep-sea fish off the coast of Florida. 

A recent bulletin from the American 
Pharmaceutical Association under the head- 
ing "Pharmacy and the National Defense 
Program" stated in part that : "Considera- 
tion has been given to the interests of the 
schools and colleges of pharmacy, the stu- 
dents of pharmacy, the pharmacies and drug 
stores, and the individual pharmacists. In 
case an emergency arises, the schools and 
colleges and the students of pharmacy will 
probably be required to operate much as 
they were during the World War. Pharmacies 
and drug stores would also probably be 
dealt with as necessary institutions. It is 
also probable that only those pharmacists 
necessary for the National Defense Pro- 
gram will be withdrawn from civilian serv- 
ice and this number cannot be determined 
until the final program is worked out. It 
is planned to see that necessary pharma- 
ceutical service for civilians will not be in- 
terrupted and that an adequate service will 
be made available to all armed forces and 
others engaged in national preparedness." 
A card from Phil Link, of Reidsville, tells 
us that he is having a fine time in New 
York City and "seeing everything from 
drama down to burlesque." 

We were in the Davis Pharmacy, of Wil- 
liamston, a short time ago and learned that 
Miss Ernestine Barber was enjoying her 
vacation in New York City.

lars." Mr. and Mrs. Beard will return to 
Chapel Hill in just a few days for the

We Pay Him But He Works for You! 

Among the real veterans of 
the Lilly sales organization is 
Walter L. Griffin, whose asso- 
ciation with Eli Lilly and 
Company dates from 1906. 
For thirty -four years Mr. 
Griffin has covered a Lilly 
territory in Texas. Houston 
is his home. 

# Into the heart of the city comes the Lilly man. 
Every morning, at the beginning of the business day, 
he will be found in your medical buildings, conduct- 
ing interviews with your physicians, promoting in- 
terest in your prescription department, and in you as 
a prescriptionist. He works for you, never against you. 

Out in the country, too, the Lilly man is diligently 
at work. For he is ubiquitous. No town is too small 
and no city too large for him, so long as there are 
physicians to be interviewed and pharmacists to fill 
their prescriptions. Give the Lilly man a break. 
Nobody ever lost on a Lilly Product. That is the 
Lilly Policy.

and paid tribute to the Charlotte druggists 
who had played such a prominent part in 
the organization of the N. C. P. A. and in 
its development through the years. 

Mrs. J. B. Hunter, President of the Char- 
lotte Women's Auxiliary, in a most cordial 
manner welcomed the visitors on behalf of 
the local ladies. 

Mrs. E. E. Thomas graciously responded 
to this greeting. 

Local Secretary R. P. Lyon made several 
announcements at this point in regard to the 
entertainment events. 

The joint session adjourned. 


After a brief intermission President 
Gattis called the N. C. P. A. to order at 

The first order of business was the roll 

Upon the motion of Acting Secretary- 
Treasurer I. W. Rose, the roll call was dis- 
pensed with since Assistant Secretary C. M. 
Andrews, acting as registrar, was recording 
the names of all present. 

The minutes of the preceding meeting 
were called for and upon motion of Acting 
Secretary Rose, this was dispensed with 
since the 1939 Proceedings had been pub- 
lished in the October issue of the Carolina 
Journal op Pharmacy and sent to all mem- 

The next order of business was the Re- 
ceipt of Resolutions. Attention was called 
to the fact that every resolution should be 
presented in writing to Chairman Roger A. 
McDume, of the Resolutions Committee. 

Vice-President Hollingsworth was called 
to the chair while the President 's Address 
was being read. 


The sixty-first annual convention of the 
North Carolina Pharmaceutical Association 
and its affiliated bodies, the Traveling 
Men 's Auxiliary and the Women 's Auxil- 
iary, was opened formally at eleven o'clock 
on Tuesday morning, May 21, in the main 
ballroom of the Hotel Charlotte in Char- 
lotte, with a joint session of the three 
bodies. Officers of the three organizations 
(presidents and secretaries) were in joint 
charge of the session's business program 
and were seated at the officers' table. 

President Phil D. Gattis, of Raleigh, 
called the sixty-first annual convention of 
the North Carolina Pharmaceutical Associa- 
tion to order.

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 



I President Gattis: Mr. Chairman, Distin- 
guished Guests, Fellow Members of the North 
Carolina Pharmaceutical Association, Ladies and 
Gentlemen : 

Twenty-four years ago a frightened, timid 
country boy from the hills of Wake, fresh from 
the ordeal of passing the State Board examina- 
tions, came to the even then metropolitan city 
: (as cities went in North Carolina in those days), 
■ of Charlotte, to take his first job as a registered 
pharmacist. Today he is back in the Queen 
jCity to preside over the deliberations of the 
(Sixty-first Annual Convention of the North Caro- 
lina Pharmaceutical Association. 

I have never forgotten the cordial welcome the 
people of this city accorded me in 1916. In 
that day Charlotte was noted for its friendliness 
and hospitality; the intervening years have added 
to its fine reputation. Certainly, no welcome could 
! be warmer or no hospitality could be more de- 
lightful than has been shown to us since our 
arrival in this city. 

As I look backward I cannot but contrast the 
Charlotte of 1916 with the Charlotte of today. 
When I came here the city was very much like 
a youth just emerging from boyhood but who 
has not yet become a man. Charlotte was in the 
process of emergence — it was suffering from 
growing pains — but it was already giving prom- 
ise of its future as a great commercial city. 
Already its people were "pointing with pride" 
to its Manufacturers Club and other evidences of 
cityhood. Already it was casting baleful looks 
and muttered imprecations at Winston-Salem, "the 
upstart to the north." That was before the days 
of paved highways. In winter Charlotte was an 
island in a sea of sticky, red mud; in summer 
it was an oasis in a desert of equally red dust. 
More mule teams than automobiles were seen on 
its streets. Yet Charlotte, then as now, was a 
growing virile city where men's eyes were on the 
future rather than on the past. Richly has the 
Queen City achieved the realization of its dreams. 

Pharmacy — Then and Now 
Sixty years ago this Association was estab- 
lished. Sixty years is a long time. I seriously 
doubt whether there is a man present who re- 
members the organization of this Association 
(Dr. Zoeller and Mr. Hancock excepted) ; cer- 
tainly there are no ladies present who remember 
the event. Just as the Charlotte of 1940 differs 
from the Charlotte of 1916 so does the North 
Carolina of 1940 differ from that of 1880. 
Moreover conditions in the drug business differ 
vastly from those obtaining sixty years ago and 
which led to the formation of this Association. 

In 1880 the entire South, including North 
Carolina, was just beginning to awaken from the 
nightmare of war and reconstruction. Business 
in those days was a relatively simple matter. In 
every respect the drug business was different from 
that of 1940. The principal concern of the 
druggist — in fact almost his only activity — was 

the dispensing of drugs. The standards of busi- 
ness were personal rather than professional. It 
remained for this Association to raise pharmacy 
from a rather formless business to the dignity 
and responsibility of a profession. Yet withal 
we are still business men and our stores are 
places of business. The prescription department, 
though a most important department of our store, 
is only one phase of our activity. The success- 
ful druggist of today must be a master of mer- 
chandising; an adept in advertising; and — at 
least in North Carolina — a technician in taxation 
if he is to remain in business and make a living. 
To this Association, more than to any other one 
influence, do the pharmacists of North Carolina 
owe the progress that has been made in our 
profession and the proud position it occupies in 
our State today. 

The life of the druggist of 1880, or even of 
1916. was relatively simple. He was the friend 
of his customer. He knew their strengths and 
their weaknesses. He shared with them their 
joys and their sorrows. Today? Well, need I 
describe the life of the pharmacist, 1940 edition ! 

Travels Over the State 
During the past three months I have visited 
some three hundred drug stores. In talking with 
the proprietors I have discovered that there is a 
widespread ignorance among pharmacists con- 
cerning the purposes and the methods and activi- 
ties of the North Carolina Pharmaceutical Asso- 
ciation — the organization which for sixty years 
has been working in this State for the advance- 
ment of ethics and standards of pharmacy. I 
have found also a startling lack of co-operative 
spirit among some of our druggists. Co-opera- 
tion is the key to progress in this or in any other 
field. For instance, it is co-operation through the 
years among the pharmacists of North Carolina 
which has lifted pharmacy from a trade to a 


The greatest honor this Association can bestow 
has come to me. Deeply do I appreciate the 
honor you have conferred upon me in allowing 
me to serve as your president. I thank you sin- 
cerely. And to the other officers of the Associa- 
tion ; to the Faculty of the School of Pharmacy 
at the State University ; and to other members 
who have contributed so generously of their time 
and energy as well as their experience to the 
affairs of this organization I express my deep and 
sincere gratitude. My term as president has been 
to me a very wonderful experience. I regret that 
I have not been able to contribute more effec- 
tively to the advancement of our Association. 


1. I recommend that the Secretary-Treasurer of 
the North Carolina Pharmaceutical Association 
visit every drug store in the State between con 
ventions. I feel that some of the druggists of 
North Carolina are ignorant of the meaning of 
ethics and co-operation in the organization's work. 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

2. I recommend that President Fordham's sug- 
gestion at the High Point meeting regarding the 
appointment of a committee to give assistance to 
the Editor of the Journal, be put into effect. 

3. Strict enforcement of the Pharmacy Laws. 
Until the laws are strictly enforced conditions in 
North Carolina will never improve. We have 
several stores in our State, operating as drug 
stores without one registered druggist. I feel 
that we should have two inspectors, for one man 
cannot cover the State. If the laws we have 
today are inadequate we should go before the 
General Assembly and improve them. 

4. I recommend that every pharmacist reaching 
the age of sixty-five be given a lifetime member- 
ship. There are now about ten pharmacists of 
this age in North Carolina who are actually en- 
gaged in the practice of pharmacy. 

5. I recommend that we continue the scholar- 
ship at the University of North Carolina, pro- 
vided funds are available. This award is to be 
made to a deserving student of pharmacy. 

6. I urge the druggists of the State to give 
better co-operation to the manufacturers who 
signed the Fair Trade contract. Unless we do, 
we are going to lose the gains we have made 
along this line. 

7. The Executive Committee announces with 
regret the resignation of Dean J. G. Beard as 
Secretary-Treasurer of this Association. I recom- 
mend that Mr. Beard be made Historian with- 
out pay for the Association. In this capacity 
he would act as custodian of the historical and 
biographical material that has been assembled. 
It should be readily available to the new Secre- 
tary-Treasurer as well as to all other interested 
parties, and new matter should be added regularly 
to its files. Mr. Beard has consented to do this 
for the Association as all the material has been 
compiled in his offices at the University. 


May I take this occasion to thank Mr. Bob 
Lyon, our Local Secretary, Mrs. Boyce Hunter, 
President of the Charlotte Woman's Auxiliary, and 
Mr. Jack Bennick, Local Chairman of the Travel- 
ing Men's Auxiliary, for the splendid plans I 
know they have made for our entertainment. I 
cannot close this address without also expressing 
appreciation to our Women's Auxiliary for their 
splendid co-operation and support throughout the 

Upon motion the President 's Address was 
referred to a committee for consideration. 

Vice-President Hollingsworth appointed as 
the Committee on the President 's Address 
Messrs. F. H. Cline, Chairman, W. S. Wolfe 
and W. L. Moose. 

At the sixth and final session the above 
committee rendered the following report : 


The Committee, appointed by the Chairman to 
report on the Address by the President, submits 
the following: 

We commend Mr. Gattis, our President, for his 
splendid service and unceasing efforts to contact 
the membership of the Association, and we ap- 
prove and recommend the adoption of the follow- 
ing recommendations embodied in his address, 
designated by numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7. 
Respectfully submitted, 
(Signed) F. H. CLINE, Chairman, 

The several recommendations were acted 
upon seriatim and then the report of the 
Committee on the President's Address was 
adopted as a whole. 

President Gattis resumed the chair. 

Upon the request of President Gattis Mr. 
W. L. Stone presented to the audience the 
visiting speaker of the morning, Dr. E. C. 
Billheimer, Assistant Vice-President in 
Charge of Manufacturing, E. R. Squibb and 

By E. C. Billheimer 

Dr. Billheimer gave a most scholarly pres- 
entation of the subject of Vitamins. He 
discussed each of them from a scientific 
standpoint, mentioning their uses in fighting 
the deficiencies in the body brought about 
by modern, unbalanced diets. He de- 
scribed the source of the several vitamins, 
explained the choice of initials as their 
means of identification, and gave a brief 
outline of the diseases they are expected to 
cure. He also gave the symptoms which 
arise from deficiency in diet and told of a 
number of conditions which have been cor- 
rected or prevented by vitamins. The hope 
that new important factors to help relieve 
present deficiencies may be discovered in the 
near future was expressed by the speaker. 

President Gattis thanked Dr. Billheimer 
for his splendid address. 

At this point the President presented Mr. 
Turner F. Currens, Vice-President of the 
Norwich Pharmacal Co., mentioning that he 
was a member of the N. C. P. A. and had 
served as Local Secretary for the New York 
meeting in 1926. 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


By Turner F. Currens 

The speaker took up the subject of vita- 
mins from a commercial standpoint and em- 
phasized their importance as a business 
item. He appealed to the druggists ' ' to 
look out for themselves and to hold on to 
their Vitamin business — if they lost that it 
would be mighty easy for other items to 
travel likewise." Mr. Currens set forth 
ample proof that this danger existed and 
"endeavored to set up a prescription for 
the trouble ' ' via better displays, etc. As a 
good illustration of Vitamin items a book- 
let was distributed. 

The appreciation of the audience was ex- 
pressed to Mr. Currens for his helpful ad- 

Following the awarding of prizes the 
meeting adjourned. 


The second session of the N. C. P. A. was 
called to order by President Gattis at three 
o'clock Tuesday afternoon. 

Secretary I. W. Rose read telegrams of 
greeting from John W. Dargavel, Executive 
Secretary of the N. A. R. D., Kappa Ep- 
silon, E. C. Daniel, W. C. Ferrell, Cliff Weil 
Cigar Co., and Magnus Mabee and Reynard, 
Inc., as well as a number of messages from 
individuals and organizations in Durham 
urging the Association to hold the 1941 
convention in their city. There was also a 
letter of invitation from the Wrightsville 
Beach Board of Trade. 

The report of the Membership Committee 
was called for. 


This Committee does not have a great deal to 
report. This year, however, has not been a bad 
one for the Association for we have had 83 
members to come into our organization. 

It seems to me that with so many local drug 
clubs being organized throughout the State that 
we have a good set-up to secure a great many 
new members for the N. C. P. A. If our Secre- 
tary will contact the officers of these drug clubs 
I am sure we could get a good response and a 
great many new members. 

Let's each and every one of us keep on the 
look-out for new members and when we do see 
or know of a prospect, notify the Secretary. 

For the benefit of those who may have for- 
gotten, the dues for a regular member who is a 
drug store owner are $10.00, and for clerks, 
$4.00 annually. 

Let's all of us work hard for new members. 
(Signed) RALPH P. ROGERS, 
Chairman, Membership Committee 

The report of the Membership Committee 
was accepted with thanks. 

The next order of business was the re- 
port of the Executive Committee. 


First Session 

The first meeting of the Executive Committee 
for the year 1939-1940 was held in the Sir 
Walter Hotel in Raleigh, June 21, with every 
member present. 

Copies of the Auditor's Report of the books 
of the Secretary-Treasurer as well as his recom- 
mendations were read, studied and approved. 
Upon the motion of Ferrell-Suttlemyre the Audi- 
tor's suggestion was likewise approved that "all 
dismemberments should be authorized in writing 
by a responsible officer showing in detail name 
and amount owed," and it was ruled that such 
officer should be the Chairman of the Executive 

The Secretary pointed out the inadequacy of 
the revenue received from the Beal Fund to meet 
annually the cost of a membership in the Asso- 
ciation to the State Board candidate making the 
highest average for the year. Mr. Suttlemyre 
promised, and his offer was accepted, to see Dr. 
J. H. Beal in August and discuss this question 
with him. The matter was held in abeyance 
until a report of this conference could be ob- 

Upon further study of the Auditor's Report 
and upon consulting the By-Laws, a motion of 
Ferrell-Suttlemyre was adopted that read as 
follows: Any member who on May 31 (end of 
the fiscal year) owes two years dues and who 
will owe three years on June 1st shall be noti- 
fied not later than August 1st of this arrearage 
and shall be told that unless his account is re- 
duced to a point not greater than for two years 
he will be dismembered. Each field worker shall 
be notified of this action and shall be requested 
to use special efforts to make collections from 
such delinquent members and at the same time 
be advised of the By-Laws requirement that such 
members shall not be eligible for membership 
again until they pay an amount equal to two 
years and dues for the current year in advance. 

Messrs. Suttlemyre-Ferrell successfully moved 
that the Executive Committee recommend to the 
Association that the fiscal year be made identi- 
cal with the calendar year to render simpler the 
bookkeeping system and in order that annual 
certificates of membership may show definitely 
the time period covered by the certificate. The 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

motion carried with it a request that an edi- 
torial of explanation be carried in an early issue 
of the Journal, with a request that the members 
consider thfe proposal and submit expressions of 
their views. 

The Committee subscribed to a motion by Sut- 
tlemyre-Rogers that the Association continue its 
offer of a scholarship in the School of Pharmacy 
for the year 1939-1940. 

Upon motion of Fordham-Ferrell it was decided 
to follow the usual custom in respect to the elec- 
tion of a Local Secretary and the time of the 
next annual meeting. The Chairman and Secre- 
tary of the Committee were empowered to con- 
fer with Charlotte druggists and make a recom- 
mendation in these two regards to the Committee 
at its January meeting. 

Upon motion of Fordham-Rogers it was ordered 
that Mr. Bowman be retained at his same salary 
for the coming year. 

In this same connection, Ferrell-Suttlemyre 
moved that the Board of Pharmacy be requested 
to help the Association by contributing not less 
than $1,000 to be employed in paying Mr. Bow- 
man's salary and that the Secretary should ad- 
dress such request to the members of the Board 
with the explanation that the latter would use 
such portion of his time as necessary to help the 
Secretary in a legal way but for obvious reasons 
not to be expected to prosecute members of the 
Association directly. 

Upon motion of Suttlemyre-Rogers Miss Alice 
Noble was retained at her same salary for the 
coming year. 

Upon motion of Fordham-Suttlemyre a tele- 
gram signed jointly by the members of the Com- 
mittee was ordered sent to Senator Robert R. 
Reynolds requesting his support of the District of 
Columbia Fair Trade Bill. 

Upon motion of Suttlemyre-Ferrell the Execu- 
tive Committee authorized Mr. F. O. Bowman to 
make corrections in the dues accounts of such 
members as in his studied judgment should be 
changed from proprietor to clerk and vice versa. 

Upon motion of Fordham-Ferrell, the Chairman 
was authorized to appoint a Committee to study 
ways and means by which an Institute of Phar- 
may might be established at the University of 
North Carolina during the Summer of 1940. The 
Committee was named as follows: Messrs. Suttle- 
myre, Chairman, Fordham, and Beard. 

The meeting adjourned. 

Second Session 

The Executive Committee met January 16 with 
all members present. 

The Secretary-Treasurer presented a prepared 
financial report of the Treasury. The report was 

The Committee authorized the acceptance of two 
shares of American Druggist Fire Insurance Co. 
stock that had been secured by Mr. Suttlemyre 
and ordered the payment of $100 for this stock. 
It was shown that Dr. Beal had contributed about 
$17 to the purchase of this stock and the Secre- 
tary was directed to write a letter of apprecia- 

tion to Dr. Beal. The Secretary was permitted 
to purchase the paid-up share of stock in the 
Orange County Building and Loan Association 
which the Association held in order to buy the 
above druggists' insurance stock. 

Upon motion of Ferrell-Rogers the balance of 
$44.34 received from Mr. A. C. Cecil, Local 
Secretary for the 1939 meeting, is to revert to 
the general fund. 

Upon motion of Fordham-FerreU, the Committee 
determined that all unused monies reported by 
each year's local secretary shall go into the gen- 
eral fund without ear-mark for any particular 

It was understood that the scholarship offered 
by the Association to a student of pharmacy for 
1939-1940 is to be held until next year and then 
awarded without prejudice that might result, from 
the fact that a suitable applicant was not found 
this year. 

By unanimous consent the date of the 1940 
convention was fixed as May 21-22-23. Also by 
unanimous voting Mr. R. P. Lyon was selected 
Local Secretary of the convention. The Hotel 
Charlotte was voted convention headquarters. 

The Committee authorized the purchase of the 
"Food and Drug Service" offered by Prentice- 
Hall at a cost of $36.00 a year for 1940. 

It was the sense of the group that many of 
the reports at the 1940 convention be submitted 
by title and published in the Proceedings. 

The Committee adjourned. 

Third Session 

The Third Session of the Executive Committee 
was held in Chapel Hill, February 22, with all 
members present except Messrs. Ferrell and Sut- 
tlemyre. Mr. Beard tendered his resignation as 
Secretary-Treasurer and as Managing Editor of 
the Journal effective March 15. This resigna- 
tion was accepted upon motion of Messrs. Beard- 

Upon motion of Fordham-Rogers a letter of ap- 
preciation is to be prepared and sent to Mr. 
Beard by the President. 

Messrs. Fordham-Rogers moved that Mr. I. W. 
Rose be appointed as Acting Secretary-Treasurer 
and as Acting Managing Editor of the Jol-rnal 
until June 30. 

Messrs. Rogers-Hollingsworth moved that the 
sum of $50 be paid Mr. Rose and $75 to Miss 
Noble for the work of preparing the Journal 
for the May, June and July issues. This amount 
represents the salary that would have been paid 
to the Managing Editor. 

Respectfully submitted,

Fourth Session 

The fourth meeting of the Committee was held 
May 20 at Charlotte with all members present 
except Mr. W. C. Ferrell.

is to serve would be the same as for an entire

Board of Pharmacy Appointment 

His Excellency, Governor Clyde R. Hoey, on 
Vpril 28, commissioned James Gordon Ballew as 
member of the Board of Pharmacy for a five- 
ear period. Mr. Ballew thus succeeded himself 
s an examiner. 

Mail Ballot 

Immediately following the High Point meeting 
n 1939 the names of the nominees for office were 
printed in ballot form and mailed to the entire 
nembership. The ballots were returned to Presi- 
ient Gattis who delegated to the duly appointed 
Board of Tellers the task of counting the votes. 
Serving on the Board were Messrs. M. B. Melvin, 
Chairman, Wilkins Harden, and N. T. Taylor, all 
}f Raleigh, who announced the following results : 

President : Joe Hollingsworth, Mount Airy. 

First Vice-President : Ralph P. Rogers, Durham. 

Second Vice-President : Paul B. Bissette, Wilson. 

Third Vice-President : W. M. Salley, Asheville. 

Member of the Executive Committee for a Three- 
Tear Term : Phil D. Gattis, Raleigh. 
Respectfully submitted. 

(Signed) I. W. ROSE, 
Acting Secretary-Treasurer. 


Upon motion the report was accepted with 

The following committees were appointed 
? by President Gattis: Nominating: M. B. 
Melvin, Chairman, E. E. Thomas, E. R. 
Copeland, C. R. Whitehead, E. H. Tate, D. 
L. Boone, and L. M. Jarrett; Time and 
Place of Next Meeting: C. L. Eubanks, 
Chairman, J. G. Ballew, and J. C. Brant- 
ley, Jr. 

At this point the meeting was turned over 
to Chairman E. F. Rimmer and his asso- 
ciates on the Papers and Queries Committee, 
Messrs. Phil Link and J. C. Brantley, Jr. 

The program consisted of a dramatization 
of the subject of "Turn-over." It was 
based on the search of the druggist to 
achieve financial success in the conduct of 
his drug store. It showed that in this quest 
the pharmacist reaches a decision finally 
that what his business needs and must find 
is ' ' Turnover. ' ' The search for this mys- 
terious "Turnover" furnished the theme for 
the development of the program. 

The dramatization began with "an im- 
promptu dialogue ' ' between Chairman 
Rimmer and Mr. A. C. Cecil on the problems 
of the individual druggist, bringing out the 
point that if the druggist can solve the 
turnover problem he has accomplished his 
most difficult task. 

Then followed an acrobatic dance by a 
comely young woman — ' ' A nifty turnover 
from an esthetic standpoint but not filling 
the need of the perplexed pharmacist." 

Xext the chef of the Hotel Charlotte ap- 
peared with a most tempting apple turn- 
over. The Chairman remarked that such 
food is very appetizing but it is still not 
the ' ' Turnover ' ' the aforesaid druggist re- 

Mr. Phil Link was called upon to discuss 
a turnover "to avoid as long as possible," 
and he used as his subject "Disadvantages 
of Too Much Turnover in Personnel. ' ' 



By Phil Link 

The speaker felt that it would be inter- 
esting to consider the disadvantages of 
changing clerks too frequently. The aver- 
age customer, all other factors being equal, 
buys at a certain store because he knows 
and likes the people who work there. The 
buying eccentricities of customers should 
be carefully regarded — a new clerk may ir- 
ritate a purchaser through ignorance of in- 
dividual traits. If a customer has to be 
constantly educating new clerks to his buy- 
ing habits he may carry his business to a 
firm that isn't always making changes in 
personnel. A patron likes to see the same 
faces in a store and, most important of all, 
a customer does not like to have a new 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

clerk filling his prescriptions. A new clerk 
cannot learn the stock quickly and frequent 
changes in errand boys affect the efficiency 
of delivery service. With a turnover in per- 
sonnel a corresponding change in store 
policy results. 

Chairman Rimmer remarked that he felt 
sure that the audience would agree that the 
points brought out in the paper are com- 
mendable. We are on the right track, but 
we still have not found the complete answer 
to "Turnover." He then called on Mr. J. 
C. Brantley, Jr. to discuss another ' ' Turn- 
over" to avoid as long as possible. 

Mr. Brantley discussed, "The Disadvan- 
tages of Deviating Too Far From An Ethi- 
cal Drug Business." 

By J. C. Brantley, Jr. 
It seems that the majority of drug stores 
still carry many items unrelated to phar- 
macy. This is not for the best interests of 
our profession. Conditions would be im- 
proved by a return to a more ethical drug 
business. ' ' The pharmacist is beginning to 
realize that a better living can be made by 
exploring the professional services of ethi- 
cal pharmacy. ' ' The time is fast approach- 
ing when the physician and the pharmacist 
should unite their professional abilities and 
skill for the best interests of both groups. 
"It is to the advantage of the public for 
the healing professions to work and co-ordi- 
nate their talents, and this can be done suc- 
cessfully only if Pharmacy continues its 
educational advancement and ethical pro- 
fessional service to the sick and indigent. ' ' 
Chairman Rimmer observed that the 
speaker's remarks were commendable but 
that a complete answer to the question of 
' ' Turnover ' ' had not yet been given. There- 
upon he presented to the audience Vice- 
President L. O. Heideman, of the Neilsen 
Drug Index, who gave a most comprehen- 
sive and interesting address on the sub- 
ject of "Turnover." 

By L. O. Heideman 
This address, showing the relation of 
turnover to the business of the average 

drug store, was published in full in th< 
August issue of the Carolina Journal oi 

The above address completed the nove^ 
and instructive program of the Papers anc 
Queries Committee. 

Chairman Rimmer and his Committed 
were extended the enthusiastic thanks of th< 
Association for the time and thought the} 
had given to the preparation of their pro 

Upon motion the meeting adjourned. 


The third session was called to order by 
President Gattis at ten o'clock on Wednes- 
day morning, May 22. 

The first order of business was the an- 
nual report of the Secretary-Treasurer of 
the North Carolina Board of Pharmacy. 

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

Upon motion of Mr. R. P. Rogers, duly 
seconded, the report was accepted with! 

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


Mr. President and Members of the North Caro 
Una Pharmaceutical Association : 

I have the honor to submit at this time my 
20th Annual Report as Attorney for your Asso- 

Inasmuch as I am scheduled to present a report 
as Executive Secretary of the Fair Trade Com- 
mittee later, this report will he confined to other 
activities engaged in and some matters of interest 
to our membership, aside from that of Fair Trade. 
Incidentally, to my mind, Fair Trade is the most 
important subject of all and the one and only 
plan thus far devised and obtained that possesses 
full possibilities of salvation for the drug indus 
try, and especially for the retail druggists, not 
only in North Carolina but in the entire nation 
as well, if only it is given the support to which 
it is entitled. 

At the outset, let me say that President Gattis 
wisely suggested some weeks ago that convention 
reports should be as short as possible, stating 
that it was sometimes tiresome to be forced to 
listen to longwinded reports and speeches. Tak- 
ing the cue from Pres. Phil and being in perfect 
agreement and accord with his suggestion, I have 
endeavored to observe brevity throughout and 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


trust that I shall have finished before a bored or 
tiresome reaction manifests itself in too many 

The report consists of : 

First — A statement dealing with the collection 
of dues and the securing of new members for the 
Association ; 

Second — A discussion of the new Pure Pood, 
Drug and Cosmetic Law; and 

Third — A survey of the Legislative outlook for 
the 1941 General Assembly. 

Again during this year, because of the large 
amount of time it has taken in the promotion 
of the Fair Trade Movement; the additional work 
occasioned by the enactment of the new drug 
law; together with the weeks that have been 
spent in sponsoring candidates for the next Legis- 
lature who have been our genuine friends and 
who have stood by us when their votes and help 
saved us from defeat, and likewise, in contact- 
ing and helping others whom we hope to have 
as our friends next January when the biennial 
legislative fight begins, I have been unable to 
spend but little time traveling over the State 
for the purpose of collecting dues and getting 
new members. I did manage, however, to spend 
some three or four weeks altogether in this work, 
and succeeded in collecting around $700,00 in 
dues and securing more than a dozen new Asso- 
ciation members. 

It appears to be a foregone conclusion that if 
we are to keep our membership what it should 
be and the Association Treasury in even a fairly 
satisfactory condition, it will be absolutely neces- 
sary for some representative of the Association to 
spend considerable time during the coming year 
actually in the field calling personally on drug 
store proprietors and clerks for the primary pur- 
pose of collecting dues, obtaining reinstatements 
and securing new members. 

In this connection, let me say that if it shall 
be the will of the Executive Committee that this 
work be done by me, I pledge myself to spend 
whatever time it takes and is necessary to cover 
the State in a effort to restore both the member- 
ship and funds of the Association to their former 
status, so that the good work done for its mem- 
bers in the past may continue unhampered. 

Now, with respect to the new Pood, Drug and 
Cosmetic Law, enacted by the 1939 Legislature 
to become effective January 1, 1940, almost five 
months ago, we find ourselves but slightly better 
equipped with information concerning its applica- 
tion and operation than we were at the High 
Point convention a year ago. Of course, we 
have been furnished with interpretations on some 
phases of the law, and also, some rulings have 
been promulgated. But in the main, these have 
dealt with the sale of dangerous drugs, and have 
come from the Federal Drug Administration 
rather than State authorities. 

Just prior to its effective date, Dr. B. W. 
Kilgore, Chief Chemist of the State Department 
of Agriculture, under whose direct supervision 
the enforcement of the law is lodged, made the 
following observations, indicating the policies to 

be followed in the application and operation of 
the new law. 

"A new Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act was 
passed by the Legislature of 1939 and goes into 
effect on January 1, 1940. This Law covers 
foods, drugs and cosmetics and will supersede the 
old Food and Drug Law. 

"The Commissioner and the Board of Agricul- 
ture will be responsible for the enforcement of 
the food provisions of the new law, as they have 
enforced the provisions of the old law. The old 
law has been in effect for some thirty odd years 
and very satisfactory results have come from its 

"Only a limited amount of work has been done 
on drugs, while the cosmetic part of the 1939 
law is new, there having been no State law on 
this subject until the present Act was passed. 

"In the enforcement of the Drug and Cosmetic 
portions of the new law, the Board of Health, 
the Board of Pharmacy, and the Board of Agri- 
culture will co-operate and be responsible for 
carrying out the provisions of the law. It is the 
purpose of these three agencies vigorously to en- 
force the provisions of the law relating to drugs 
and cosmetics, working together in the inspection 
of all drugs and cosmetics and making analyses 
of products to see that such products meet the 
requirements of law and standards or claims for 

"The new State Law follows closely the provi- 
sions of the Federal Law, and the State and 
Federal Governments will co-operate in the work. 
It will be necessary for products manufactured 
in the State or outside of the State and sold in 
interstate commerce to meet the requirements of 
the Federal Law. When this is done the prod- 
ucts will, in all likelihood, meet the requirements 
of the State Law. It is advised that our manu- 
facturers of drugs and cosmetics look carefully 
into the provisions of the Federal Law and pre- 
pare to meet its requirements as to labeling, ad- 
vertising and other matters. Our retail drug- 
gists should follow the same course and plan to 
move products now on their shelves not meeting 
the requirements of the Federal Law and regula- 
tions before January 1st. 

"While attention is now being given to State 
definitions and regulations, it is the purpose of 
the State Administration to accept the Federal 
regulations in so far as they are applicable to 
State conditions, which, we expect, will result 
mainly in the same set of regulations and provi- 
sions for the Federal Government and for the 
State. This statement is made in the hope that 
it will be helpful to our drug trade in the State 
in getting ready for the operation of the new 
State Law and the Federal Law. It is the 
intention to use the new State Law to strengthen 
present drug laws and every effort will be made 
to help the drug trade of the State in every 
way possible." 

Though progress has been slow in getting a 
new drug law under way, we may expect definite 
action soon insofar as the Federal Law is con- 
cerned. A meeting of State and Federal Drug 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

Officials is being held in Washington this week 
for the purpose of ironing out certain contro- 
verted provisions contained in the regulations that 
have been prepared and are now under con- 
sideration. When conclusions have been reached, 
the regulations will then be promulgated, which 
under the provisions of the Federal Act will have 
the same force and effect as the law itself. 

As indicated in Dr. Kilgore's statement, it is 
likely that the Federal regulations will be adopted 
by our State authority, in toto. At the same time, 
however, our law requires that public hearings 
must be held, with ample notice given to inter- 
ested parties, before such action may be taken. 

In this connection, there appears to be little 
likelihood that a great deal will be done toward 
putting our State Drug Law in operation until 
next year. The Act carried no appropriation, 
hence no funds are available for the work. The 
Department of Agriculture, therefore, necessarily 
will be curtailed in its activities until provision 
is made for the enforcement of the Act. Suitable 
laboratories will be set up by the Department and 
a pharmaceutical chemist will be employed in the 
meantime, but beyond this little more may be ex- 
pected until an appropriation from the 1941 
General Assembly comes through. 

Let us now take up the requirements govern- 
ing the sale of certain specific drugs provided by 
interpretative regulations under authority of a 
new drug law. 

First — Barbiturates. All derivatives of barbi- 
turic acid such as amytal, phenobarbital, luminal, 
etc., may be sold as heretofore, that is in accord- 
ance with the provisions of the North Carolina 
Hypnotic Drug Law, provided that the statement 
'Warning — May be habit forming" is written, 
printed, or stamped upon the label of the package 
in which sold. 

These items, of course, may be sold upon pre- 
scription and may be refilled. When sold upon 
prescription, however, the label must likewise bear 
the statement "Warning — May be habit form- 
ing" unless such prescription bears the wording 
"Not refillable," or some similar designation, 
written thereon by the prescribing physician. 
In this event, the warning referred to is not 
required on the label. (Barbituric Acid as such 
may be sold pursuant to prescription only.) 

Second — Aminopyrine, Cinchophen, Neocincho- 
phen, Sulfanilamide, preparations containing any 
of these, and all their derivatives may be sold only 
upon prescription and may not be refilled. 

Third — Dinitrophenol and Dinitrocresol or any 
product containing these chemicals, designed for 
human use, may not be sold, not even pursuant to 

All drug products dispensed from the origi- 
nal package from the manufacturer must be 
labeled, of course, in accordance with the label- 
ing provisions of the new Act. 

The principal requirements as they relate to 
the labeling of drugs, prepared by the Federal 
Food & Drug Administration, were published in 
the January issue of the Journal. Numerous 
articles have appeared from time to time in many 

of the drug journals of the country on the sub- 
ject. Likewise, some National Associations have 
prepared for the trade hundreds of labels suit- 
able for use under the Federal Law as well as 
those states having laws with similar labeling pro- 
visions. Most of these are for official prepara- 
tions, and in this particular, it is felt that a 
large majority of our retailers are fairly well in- 
formed. There remains some confusion, however, 
as to the labeling of many of the "non-official 
compounds" by retail druggists who dispense 
them. We are now working for a clarification of 
this proposition. This information will be fur- 
nished the druggists of the State when the matter 
has been worked out. 

As indicated above much remains to be done 
and to be learned about this new and, to a large 
extent, untried law. Patience, perseverance and 
study will be required by every druggist if he is 
to keep abreast with the developments that will 
necessarily take place from time to time. 

Under the provisions of the Rubbing Alcohol 
Compound Regulation (T. D. 4963) promulgated 
January 18 and effective February 18, 1940, the 
sale of all Rubbing Alcohol Compounds at retail 
to consumers for use was restricted to drug stores 
only, through registered pharmacists who are re- 
quired at the time of sale "to write or stamp 
across the brand label in contrasting colors 'Sold 
By', followed by the pharmacist's name and the 
address of the retail drug store where the sale 
was made." 

No provision, whatever, was made for the sale 
of this product by either an assistant pharmacist 
or by a physician operating a drug store under a 
permit from the Board of Pharmacy. This situa- 
tion was communicated immediately to Mr. Row- 
land Jones, Washington Representative of the 
N. A. R. D., who succeeded in getting a supple- 
mentary ruling from the Department taking care 
of the matter by providing as follows : 

"It is the view of this office that any person, 
whether he is a registered pharmacist, assistant 
registered pharmacist, assistant pharmacist, phar- 
macy apprentice, or physician, empowered by the 
laws of the State in which he practices, or is 
licensed, to compound prescriptions, dispense 
drugs, or otherwise perform the functions gen- 
erally attributed to a registered pharmacist, may 
be considered to be a 'registered pharmacist' 
within the purview of Treasury Decision 4963. 

"Accordingly, this office sees no reason why 
such person may not sell rubbing alcohol com- 
pound, provided that, at the time of sale, he 
writes or stamps across the brand label in con- 
trasting colors the words 'Sold by' followed by his 
name and the address of the retail drug store 
where the sale is made." 

Rubbing Alcohol Compounds, therefore, in 
North Carolina may be sold only by a licensed 
pharmacist, a registered assistant pharmacist or 
by a licensed physician, under the conditions set 
forth for the sale of this product in the amended 
decision referred to. 

While we have not had a Legislative session to 
contend with this year, at the same time one of 

The Carolina Journal op Pharmacy 


the most colorful political campaigns in the his- 
tory of the State has heen carried on for the 
past several months hy the hundreds of candi- 
dates seeking offices from the governorship on 
down the line to the lowest elective office at the 
hands of the people. Between three and four 
hundred candidates from the respective counties 
of the State are out for election to the next 
General Assembly, when as a matter of fact this 
body consists of only 170 members — 120 repre- 
sentatives and 20 senators. Responding to calls 
of many of these men who are up for re-election 
and who have been staunch friends of our retail 
druggists, casting their votes for us and helping 
us when votes and help really counted, I have 
visited more than 50 of the 100 counties in the 
State during the past several weeks in behalf of 
these men and have helped them in every way I 
possibly could. Besides, I have made contacts 
with many others who will likely be elected and 
whose support we shall need as badly in all prob- 
ability next January as we needed votes at the 
1939 Session. 

In view of the many adverse proposals directed 
at us during the last Legislature, including costly 
tax measures, unreasonable wage and hour de 
mands, along with many other propositions equallj 
detrimental to pharmacy and the drug business, 
and realizing the fact that each and every one 
of these proposals was defeated because of friend- 
ly legislators, nothing less than what has been 
done would have begun to measure up to the 
consideration to which they were entitled and 
should reasonably have expected. 

As citizens of North Carolina each and every 
"one of us here is interested in its welfare. It is 
our duty, therefore, to vote for and help elect 
the very best men available to fill the offices under 
whose direction the administration of the State 
Government is maintained. We should be par- 
ticularly interested in electing men of experience, 
sanity and character as members of the General 
Assembly, for it is this group that establishes the 
rules of conduct not only for our everyday life 
but, also, prescribes the rules that govern our 
business as well. 

In conclusion, it is my sincere hope that every 
voter among us will go to the polls next Saturday 
and cast his or her vote for the best available 
men and of the caliber described for the respective 
offices to be filled. 

When a majority of such men have been elected 
to the Legislature, neither retail druggists nor 
any other group need be fearful of unfair, un- 
just or discriminatory Legislation being placed 
upon our Statute Books. 

Respectfully submitted, 


Upon the motion of Messrs. J. C. Hood- 
Sam Welfare, the report of Attorney Bow- 
man was accepted with thanks. 

Chairman C. C. Fordham was called upon 
for a report of the Delegations to both 

the 1939 and 1940 conventions of the Ameri- 
can Pharmaceutical Association. 


Mr. President, and 'Members of the North Caro- 
lina Pharmaceutical Association: 

I have the honor to submit at this time the 
report of the delegates to the 1939 convention of 
the American Pharmaceutical Association, held in 
Atlanta. August 20-26. Your delegation was 
present one hundred per cent. The members 
were: Messrs. A. C. Cecil, Joe Hollingsworth, 
P. J. Suttlemyre, C. R. Whitehead, and C. C. 
Fordham. North Carolina had a total of seven- 
teen men at the convention. 

Every phase of American Pharmacy was well 
represented. The attendance at each meeting 
and the interest in the work of the Association, 
as well as its affiliated organizations, was very 

The A. Ph. A. began its program on Tuesday 
evening. There was a constant succession of 
meetings — morning, afternoon and evening — with 
the exception of Wednesday evening when a joint 
banquet was held. Several sections met at the 
same time but their programs were so arranged 
that one could attend the session of his choice. 

President Lascoff's address opened the Tues- 
day evening meeting and was one of the out- 
standing features of the convention. He sub- 
mitted seven recommendations. The more impor- 
tant of these were: that a study be made of the 
present possibilities of enacting constitutional 
legislation which will restrict the ownership of 
drug stores to registered pharmacists; that a 
systematic effort be made to have pharmacy rep- 
resented on state and local Boards of Health; and 
that special consideration be given to ways and 
means of bringing the medical and pharmaceuti- 
cal professions into closer co-operation in dealing 
with questions of mutual interest with particular 
reference to the socialization of the medical pro- 
fessions, and the greater use of official prepara- 

Forceful addresses were made by Governor E. 
D. Rivers, of Georgia, on "Public Health;" Chan- 
cellor Sanford, of the University of Georgia on 
"Pharmacy of Tomorrow," and by Herbert M. 
Skinner, former President of the Pharmaceutical 
Society of Great Britain and an Honorary Mem- 
ber of the A. Ph. A. on "The Place of Pharmacy 
in Health Insurance in England." 

As approximately two hundred papers, reports, 
etc., were considered during the convention, ob- 
viously it is impossible to review them by title. 
Outstanding papers were presented on Socializa- 
tion of Health Services, Food, Drug and Cosmetic 
Legislation, Modernization of Pharmacy Laws, 
Hospital Pharmacy, and Professional Pharmacy. 
It was disclosed that only 2.5 per cent of the 
registered pharmacists of this country are mem- 
bers of the A. Ph. A. This number is far too 
low and I urge the pharmacists of this State to 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

become affiliated with the organization. Ofttimes 
I believe the A. Ph. A. is looked upon as a high- 
brow organization composed principally of pro- 
fessional pharmacists, board members and college 
professors. The Constitution of the A. Ph. A. 
proves this to be false. It sets forth in simple 
language that the object of the organization is to 
unite the educated and reputable pharmacists of 
this nation in doing those things that will accrue 
to the highest good and greatest protection to the 

An important change was made in the publica- 
tion of the Journal. The Journal is now edited 
in two editions — the practical pharmacy and the 
scientific editions; the latter is not only of great 
interest but of vital value to every practicing 
professional pharmacist and is obtainable by 
every member of the A. Ph. A. who desires it. 

The successful efforts of the A. Ph. A. in 
maintaining professional parity of pharmacy with 
the other health sciences deserves the loyalty of 
pharmacists throughout the Nation. In North 
Carolina let's show our appreciation by not only 
joining the A. Ph. A. but by actively supporting

Chairman Fordham presented an informal 
report of the 19-40 convention of the A. 
Ph. A., held in Richmond, Va., a few days 
previously on May 5-12. There had not 
been sufficient time to prepare the usual 
written report. 

Upon the motion of Messrs. Eubanks- 
Wolfe the reports of the delegates to the 
A. Ph. A. conventions were accepted with 

Chairman J. A. Goode was called upon for 
a report of the delegates to the N. A. R. D. 

REPORT OF THE 1939 N. A. R. D. 

The 1939 annual convention of the National 
Association of Retail Druggists was held in St. 
Paul, Minnesota, October 9-13. The delegation 
attending from this Association was composed of 
Messrs. Suttlemyre, Eubanks, President Gattis 
and myself. 

By reason of the geographical location of the 
convention city, the attendance was not as large 
as that of the previous year, but the program was 
extremely informative. The drug show was one 
of the largest in the Association's history. The 
attractive exhibits featured the latest in drug 

store merchandise, and the newest wrinkles in | 
the art of display. 

Among the high-lights of the Convention was 
an address by Congressman Wright Patman en- j 
titled, "What the Local Druggist Can do to Help 
Pass the Anti-Chain Store Bill." Congressman 
Patman spoke to a capacity house, and his ad- 
dress was broadcast over a nation-wide radio 

Another speaker who held the complete atten- 
tion of his audience for nearly two hours was 
A. C. Nielsen, president of the company bearing 
his name, and who specializes in developing sta- 
tistics for the drug industry. Mr. Nielsen de- 
veloped interesting and startling facts which were 
of great interest to his listeners, and which 
brought forth rounds of applause, as it was 
shown that they bore out graphically the major 
contentions of the retail druggists in their rela- 
tion to manufacturers and wholesalers. Among 
other impressive points made by the speaker was 
that the average drug store volume is approxi- 
mately $50 per day; the average sale per custo- 
mer is approximately 25c; the average cost of 
operation is approximately 30%. It costs ap- 
proximately 7c to wait on the average drug store 

Interesting and helpful answers were given to 
such questions as: Why do some stores do a 
bigger cigar business than others? Why do some 
stores do a better soda business than others 1 
Why do some stores do a bigger cosmetic business 
than others ? Why do some stores do a bigger 
prescription business than others? Where do the 
people who live in your community buy their 
drug store needs ? What do the people in your 
community buy ? And. why don't you get your 
share of the business ? These and many other 
practical solutions were free to those who were 
in attendance. Statistical information is on the 
list of required reading by the real leaders in 
business of today. By the use of the informa- 
tion available one may easily become his own 
business astrologer. By careful application of 
the facts available to one's own business, he is in 
position to foretell almost to the month the date 
of his business demise. Or, on the other hand, 
he can forecast the rate of his progress. Examine 
this statement and see which way you, yourself 
are going. It will be interesting and possibly 
helpful, or it may be a lot of fun, even though 
you are one of the average and, because you are 
just the average, destined to do nothing about it 

Following the address of Mr. Nielsen, the Hon- 
orable John E. Miller, U. S. Senator from Arkan- 
sas, one of the authors of the Miller-Tydings Act, 
in a very pointed address upheld Fair Trade, and 
scored various groups of governmental bureaus 
who. in the Senator's opinion, were overstepping 
reasonable bounds in their efforts to depreciate 
Fair Trade legislation. The Senator pointed out 
that these Bureau zealots were seemingly biased 
in their findings in that they failed to mention 
the amount of counterfeit merchandise eliminated 
from the market through the effect of Fair Trade 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


laws, together with other unfair business prac- 
tices, as a result of its operation in the public's 
interest. Senator Miller's address was received 
with resounding enthusiasm. 

Thursday night proved to be the big night 
of the Convention entertainment program. On 
this evening the Twin Cities outdid themselves in 
their effort to please the visitors from far and 
near. The mammoth three-hour Ice Follies 
proved to be one of the finest entertainments ever 
presented at an N. A. R. D. Convention. With 
plenty of local talent from which to draw and 
augmented by national and international cham- 
pions from far and near, including several Cana- 
dian acts, the Ice Follies held the attention of the 
Convention for more than three hours. To de- 
scribe this colorful show on the huge square of 
ice, marked in the center with the mammoth let- 
ters, "N. A. R. D.," taxes one's adjectives. It 
was an outstanding performance by stars of the 
steel blades, flashing about the huge arena in 
colorful costumes, with marvelous colorful effects, 
to music by the Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra. 
The program varied from the humorous to the 
spectacular with such a brilliant parade of vari- 
ous types of ice demonstrations as to beggar 

All and all, the entertainment program was 
most extraordinary, and was somewhat in the 
nature of a general compliment to Secretary Dar- 
gavel, who is a native of Minnesota, and to whom 
a great deal of credit is due for the highly suc- 
cessful business program of the Convention. 

One cannot attend an N. A. R. D. convention 
without observing that the independent retail 
druggist is now beginning to realize that he needs 
to be informed of the conditions and problems 
which affect his business and profession; that he 
needs to be inspired for the task that lies before 
him, and that he needs to draw on the experience 
of his fellow. Today, the independent retail drug- 
gist cannot hope to succeed through his own 
efforts alone. Whether we like it or not, the days 
of rugged individualism are in the past. Co- 
operation and co-ordination are the magic words 
that open the doors of the future. The inde- 
pendent retail druggists' sole agencies for their 
attainment are in their own state and national 
organizations. Utopia will come to this organi- 
zation only when it realizes it has something to 
sell and sets about to develop a practical plan 
of merchandising it. As a first step, we must 
proceed in the direction of the education of our 
membership with respect to aims and purposes. 
In short, we must work out a plan, the final 
effect of which will be to cause a substantial ma- 
jority of the proprietors of the drug stores to be 
in attendance in person at our state and national 
associations. Each of us should constitute our- 
selves a committee of one for the coming year, to 
bring some proprietor of a drug store, who has 
not been attending the meetings in recent years, 
to our next, convention. And, if successful in 
gaining his attendance, continue our efforts to in- 
terest him in organized pharmacy in a national 

sense. It is the only practical way to interest 
and inform our associates of the objectives of 
organized pharmacy. 

In conclusion, I further recommend continued 
affiliation of this Association with the N. A. R. D., 
and that we actively support its program for the 
betterment of the condition of the independent 
retail druggist.

Washington, D. C, on May 14-15. All three 
delegates from the N. C. P. A. were in 
attendance, namely, Messrs. Fordham, Joe 
Hollingsworth, and Carl T. Durham. The 
high lights of the convention were taken up 
and particular mention was made of the

Trade Committee. 


Chairman Fordham presented an informal 
report of the activities of his Committee 
during the past year. He took occasion to 
praise Mr. Bowman for his accomplishments 
as Executive Secretary for the Fair Trade 
group. He impressed upon his audience the 
importance of co-operating with manufac- 
turers who observe fair trade and of in- 
sisting that all manufacturers operate ac- 
cording to these practices. This would 
result not in a raise in prices but in a 
stabilization of them. 

Chairman Fordham then called on repre- 
sentatives of manufacturing houses who 
operate under Fair Trade to present the 
views of such concerns. This proved to be 
an informative and interesting feature of 
the session. 

Mr. Bowman was next called upon to pre- 
sent his report as Executive Secretarv of the 
Fair Trade Committee. 


Mr. President and Members of the North Caro- 
lina Pharmaceutical Association: 

As Executive Secretary of the Fair Trade Com- 
mittee of the Association, I am making this brief 
report, which covers only some of the activities 
of your Committee and the work done through 
my office in the promotion of Fair Trade since 
our last Annual Convention, together with a finan- 
cial statement of the fiscal affairs of the Com- 
mittee. I shall not enter into a discussion of the 
Fair Trade Movement either in a general way 
or otherwise, inasmuch as we have been able 
to get one of our good friends from a neighbor- 
ing state to come over and address the Conven- 
tion on this subject at this session. 

At the outset, it may be stated that the poli- 
cies adopted by the original Committee when 
Fair Trade was first inaugurated in this State 
remain unchanged. From the very beginning 

we have endeavored at all times to co-operate to 
the fullest with all Fair Trade manufacturers,, 
and likewise have expended our best efforts in 
trying to get other manufacturers to come under 
our Fair Trade Law. 

Needless to say, carrying on Fair Trade and 
its promotion has entailed much work, involving 
the writing of hundreds of individual letters, 
preparing and getting out form letters, handling 
Fair Trade price books, keeping records of all 
contract transactions, handling contracts for 
manufacturers coming under the law, and fur- 
nishing from time to time both new and revised 
price sheets of manufacturers. In addition, 
every violation of minimum prices that has come 
to our attention has been reported immediately 
to the manufacturer. Generally speaking, the 
manufacturers have endeavored to maintain their 
minimum resale prices. In most instances of re- 
ported violations immediate steps have been taken 
by them to correct the price irregularities. 

During this fiscal year 36 additional manufac- 
turers have qualified under our Fair Trade Law. 
At the beginning of the year there were 229. 
Today, we have 265 manufacturers actually oper- 
ating under the North Carolina Fair Trade Act. 
No longer do we have need to worry as to 
whether or not our Fair Trade Act will stand 
the test of the Courts. The Supreme Court of 
North Carolina, you will recall, early last Fall 
in a six-to-one decision upheld its constitutionality 
in every particular. This decision reversed a 
ruling by one of our superior court judges who 
had declared the law unconstitutional in a suit 
brought by Eli Lilly & Company to restrain 
Saunders Drug Store, of Wilmington, North Caro- 
lina, from selling its products below established 
minimum prices. 

In a most scholarly opinion written by Justice 
Seawell, the Court went much further in detail 
on the matter of the economic side than have 
decisions of other courts thus far. This particu- 
lar decision has been hailed as the most thorough 
and logical coming from any court dealing with 
Fair Trade and absolutely correct in its inter- 

Coming now to the question of financing Fair 
Trade work, your Committee has had to depend 
upon voluntary contributions from retail drug- 
gists and from fees paid by manufacturers for 
services rendered. During the year urgent ap- 
peals have been made by letter, as well as by 
personal solicitation by members of our Com- 
mittee and others who were sufficiently interested 
to co-operate with us in this way. Of the 850 
drug stores in the State, only 130 have made 
contributions, ranging in amounts from $1.00 
to $25.00. Only one retail store donated as 
much as $25.00. We received a $50.00 contri- 
bution from one of our wholesalers. 

But with the small amount of support received, 
your Committee has functioned, nevertheless, and 
has gone forward with its work the very best 
it could under the circumstances.

receipts and disbursements of the Fair Trade

enforcement? Xo other law has ever at- 
tained this goal. Small town merchants 
claim they do have cut price competition, 
but they forget they are in easy reach of 
metropolitan centers and city newspapers 
carry many cut price advertisements. Fair 
trade will never make a successful merchant 
out of one that is unsuccessful. No man 
can legally legislate business into his store. 
' ' So may I plead with you, the North Caro- 
lina Pharmacists, to give Fair Trade an op- 
portunity by putting more strenuous efforts 
behind its enforcement and more finances 
into the organization representing your 
Fair Trade activities. ' ' 

President Gattis thanked Mr. Sliarpe for 
his informative address. 

Mr. Welfare felt that all the members 
should be given an opportunity at that time 
to contribute to Fair Trade. There was some 
discussion of the matter of finances for 
Fair Trade and the Secretary gladly ac- 
cepted the contributions or pledges made 
by members. 

At this point President Gattis resumed 
the chair. 

Upon motion the meeting adjourned. 


The fourth session was called to order by 
President Gattis at two-thirty Wednesday 

President Gattis read a telegram of greet- 
ing from Dean J. G. Beard. 

Upon the motion of Messrs. Hancock-Link 
a telegram was sent to Mr. Beard express- 
ing regret that he could not be present. 

At this point the recommendation of the 
Executive Committee was brought up to 
change the fiscal year of the Association 
to coincide with the calendar year. There 
was some discussion of this change but when 
the vote was taken an affirmative ballot was 
cast. The fiscal year will extend hereafter 
from Jan. 1st to Dec. 31st. 

Upon the request of President Gattis, 
Secretary Bose presented to the audience 
Dr. Hubert Haywood, of Ealeigh, President 
of the North Carolina Medical Society. 

Dr. Haywood chose "Professional Eela- 
tions ' ' as his subject.

allotted the task of prescribing drugs, and to U 
the pharmacist the task of dispensing drugs. This I 
gives more leisure to both and a better opportunity 
for scientific study and improvement in the arts 
of their professions. The machine age is render- 
tag the burdens of both less complex. 

The relationship between the pharmacist and 5 
the physician is a close one and is one of mutual 
interdependence. Whatever concerns the fortune 
or misfortune of one concerns the other. 

A hopeful, sanguine and optimistic spirit now 
pervades the medical profession in regard to the 
use of drugs. The age of defeatism as to the 
therapeutic efficacy of drugs, and the feeling that ' 
the patient will or will not get well, with or in ! 
spite of the aid of drugs is fast passing. Some 
two or three decades ago this spirit was quite 
prevalent in the ranks of the medical profession 
and necessarily was reflected into the lives and 
thoughts of the pharmacists. Now, we know that 
we have certain potent and specific drugs and 
have a therapeutic approach to diseases which 
were once regarded as incurable. We have new 
Chemo-therapeutic agents such as the sulfanila- 
mide group and its derivatives, carbarsone in 
amoebic dysentery, prostigmine, arsenicals and 
heavy metals in syphilis, new and effective hyp- 
notics and analgesics, various new hormones, 
pituitary extracts, liver extracts, vitamins and 
specific serums which are bringing us close to 
idealism in our attack on the forces of disease. 

It is within the realms of a possible reality, 
that while new diseases may not be discovered, 
new and specific remedies may be developed far 
better than those we have. This newly acquired 
knowledge places an increased responsibility on 
the physician and pharmacist because all thera- 
peutic agents not only can do good, but also can 
be harmful. To attach a medical label to a 
disease, and for a pharmacist or physician to 
treat it on this basis is a dangerous procedure. 
The etiological factors and a daily observation 
of the patient are the essential factors to a cor- 
rect interpretation of symptoms and a diagnosis 
of the disease, with the proper application of cor- 
rect remedies. 

Treatment should be by a physician only and 
consist in the application of physical, chemical 
and other directed treatments. The physician 
and the pharmacist should work with the patient's 
interest as the end in view. The possibility of 
missing the diagnosis of incipient pulmonary 
tuberculosis or to find the evidences of organic 
disease as the basis of a case of psychoneurosis is 
a common error. Therefore, a correct diagnosis 
is a necessity before correct treatment can be in- 
stituted. Treatment is rapidly becoming a field 
of Biologic Engineering and must be individual

i fit each case. Rapid shifts in the therapeutic 
eld are often necessary. Only one trained in 
eatment should attempt this human engineering, 
nd supervision of treatment should be close. 

Pharmacopoeia and National Formulary — few 
hysicians know the range and compass of these 
ooks. Every physician can select from them the 
w formulas he may need that will be as elegant 
nd as pleasant as proprietary preparations, and 
rill, moreover, be guaranteed doses of the vari- 
us ingredients of the formulas selected. 

Useful Drugs — The Book of Useful Drugs of 

; American Medical Association describes the 
ction and use of drugs selected for their positive 
herapeutic action. It is prepared under the 
lirection of the Council of Pharmacy and Chemis- 
ry of the American Medical Association. It is 
ntended to meet the demand for a less extensive 
Materia Medica. It evaluates the most valuable 
reparations from the vast number included in 
he Pharmacopoeia and New and Non-official 

New and Non-official Remedies: The physician 
hould be ever ready to make use of a valuable 
liscovery, but should never further fraud. A 
lew drug should be ordered straight or used only 
n prescribed combinations. Correct prescription 
vriting is a close corollary to good therapeutics. 
Therapeutics is the ultimate aim of the science 
md practice of medicine. It includes not only 
Irug therapy, to which its definition is so often 
erroneously limited, but also everything that has 
o do with the treatment of disease, the manage- 
ment of the patient, his convalescence, his return 
;o health, and the protection of the well against 

While simplicity in prescribing is advisable, the 
art of combining drugs or of rendering a drug 
less disagreeable should be studied and practiced 
until efficiency is secured. It is not justifiable for 
a physician to prescribe secret or irrational pro- 
prietary remedies. The possibilities of harm to 
the patient are too great. 

We assume very properly that the physician can 
help the pharmacist. 

1. By correct prescription writing — the art of 
prescription writing should be improved. 

2. By prescribing remedies and combinations of 
remedies approved of and included in the Pharma- 
copoeia and which are in the National Formulary. 

3. By a proper evaluation of the new remedies 
brought to his attention. 

4. By not prescribing remedies which have 
been overenthusiastically described to him by a 
detail man, who may be perfectly honest in his 
own convictions, but who has unwittingly misled 
the doctor into prescribing a remedy which may 
have no therapeutic value, or may be harmful. 
Overstocking the pharmacist's shelves with drugs 
and combinations which he may not be called 
upon to use may be avoided thus. 

5. By not overprescribing remedies for patients 
who are unable to meet the cost of many of the 
new remedies whose cost is high. This naturally 
brings on some feeling on the patient's part that 
he is being overcharged by the druggist. 

The pharmacist can help remedy this situation 
by informing the physician in regard to the 
newer potent and standard remedies which he 
carries in his stock, or which may be available. 

Reprints from the Journal of the A. M. A. at 
low cost for distribution regarding the newer 
remedies and their application to old and newly 
described diseases are available. There are very 
few doctors who would not appreciate this point 
of contact and help from the pharmacist who fills 
his prescriptions. 

The Wagner Act, which would do a great deal 
to socialize the practice of medicine and affect 
the practice of pharmacy, has been shelved dur- 
ing this present emergency. 

The pharmacist as well as the physician has 
given his aid and co-operation in the programs 
for the aid of the underprivileged and the indi- 
gent. It is my understanding that some forty 
remedies of various sorts are now distributed by 
the government which were formerly distributed 
by the pharmacists. The socialization of medi- 
cine, while it might increase the number of pre- 
scriptions written and lead to an increase in the 
number of pharmacists employed in hospitals and 
dispensaries, would in all probability be so regu- 
lated by government authorities that the profits 
and salaries would be much less than the present 
fee scales. This has been the experience of coun- 
tries where it has been tried. Regulations would 
enforce the type and cost of the remedies pre- 
scribed. We should be on the alert to guard our 
interests and inalienable rights of the free choice 
of pharmacies and physicians by the patient no 
matter what scheme is eventually put into our 
social and economic structure by a paternalistic 

I have thus tried to show you that we are one 
in spirit concerning the patient's welfare, that 
our interests are mutual and interdependent. That 
a division of labor is good for both the pharma- 
cist and the physician. That a diagnostic label 
does not always imply that a therapeutic specific 
is available. That treatment belongs to the phy- 
sician who is caring for and watching the case. 
That the physician can help the pharmacist by 
sticking to standard and reputable remedies. That 
both the physicians and the pharmacists are al- 
ready taking a large part of the responsibility 
for the needy and for aiding various government 

President Gattis expressed the apprecia- 
tion of the convention to Dr. Haywood for 
his interesting and informative address. 

At this point the meeting was turned over 
to Chairman I. T. Eeamer of the Section 
on Practical Pharmacy and Dispensing. 


Chairman Reamer called on Dr. Ealph W. 
Clark, Director of the Pharmacy Service 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

Department, Merck and Co., to discuss 
"Trends in Pharmacy." 

By Ralph W. Clark 
This paper was presented in full in the 
September issue of the Carolina Journal 
of Pharmacy. 

The second paper was read by Mr. 
Hunter L. Kelly, of Apex, who chose as his 
subject, "Newly Accepted Drugs in Supple- 
ment II." 



By Hunter L. Kelly 

The speaker took up in detail the list of 
thirteen new drugs which are included by 
the U. S. P. XI Committee of Revision in 
the "Second U. S. P. XI Supplement," 
and which became official Jan. 1st of this 
year. He also emphasized the obligation 
of every pharmacist to familiarize himself 
with these preparations. 

Chairman Reamer presented to the au- 
dience Mr. John L. Howerton, of Greens- 
boro, who spoke on "Forty Years at the 
Prescription Counter. ' ' 

By John L. Howerton 
The experiences of the speaker through 
the years were recounted and the many 
changes that have taken place in the pro- 
fession were dwelt upon. 

The next paper was presented by Mr. 
Sam McFalls, of Greensboro, who discussed, 
"Detailing by the Pharmacist— An Essen- 
tial for Future Dispensing." 


By Sam W. MoFalls 
The speaker considers detailing the prime 
factor of successful dispensing, not only for 
pharmacy as it is today, but for the phar- 
macy of the future. During recent years 
there has been a noticeable change toward 
professionalism and this has been sponsored 
notably, as well as nobly, by the larger 

manufacturing houses. Some pharmach 

still complain that their particular town 

not large enough for a professional sto: 

Too many pharmacists assume the defeat 

attitude toward decreased prescript! 

volume, but do not try "to find and reme< 

the flaw." If there are decreased sales 

other departments, however, the pharnr 

cist will immediately seek to remedy t 

situation. The only man to help the pha 

macist build a larger prescription practi 

is the physician. Despite the obvious val> 

of the physicians' good will the majority J 

pharmacists fail to call on physicians. Tl 

most effective method for advancing "oi 

profession" is to commence group detailiri 

through a co-operative or wholesale poii 

of view. This can be accomplished by sd 

ting up a council of pharmaceutical mer 

bers who in turn can supply pharmacis 

with printed material of seasonal prepan 

tions endorsed or accepted by the A.M.J 

Individual detailing also has advantage 

and the following points should be co« 

sidered: (1) Know your preparation; (2 

Discuss the satisfaction of the medicatio! 

and not the price of it; (3) Discuss the coil 

tents of the product and not the therapeut:'i 

effect; (4) Spend at least four hours a weej 

in detailing; (5) Try to arrange your ea\'\ 

during slack hours. 

Chairman Reamer stated that he woulj 
have to postpone the remainder of his pre 
gram until the next morning as Mr. W. J 
Smith, who was to contribute a paper, ha : l 
been unavoidably detained and could noj 
be present at that session. 

In the temporary absence of Presiden 
Gattis, Vice-President Hollingsworth wa 
called to the chair. 

Vice-President Hollingsworth announced 
that at the following session the By-Lawl 
addition would be brought up which had 
been offered at the last session of the 193iJ 
convention by Mr. J. C. Brantley, Jr. Tin 
Secretary was asked to read the new secJ 
tion so that members could be thinking abou 
the amendment between then and the nex 

Thereupon Secretary Rose read the pro[l 
posed section which appears on page 15: 
of the Proceedings. 

Upon motion the meeting adjourned.

I The fifth session was called to order by 
[resident Gattis at ten o 'clock on Thurs- 
fay morning, May 23. 

I The first order of business was the By- 
laws amendment introduced by Mr. Brant- 

|| President Gattis read the following pro- 
posal for a new section to Article 1 of the 
ly-Laws to be known as Sec. 5: 

Section 5. The North Carolina Pharmaceutical 
•ssociation shall, at each annual meeting, elect 
lom among the most skillful pharmacists in 
jorth Carolina, who are not teachers or instruc- 
rs teaching pharmacy in any educational insti- 
tion, for a term of five years, one pharmacist to 
e State Board of Pharmacy. The same must 
*ive been registered as a pharmacist in North 
jarolina at least five years previous to his elec- 
|on and he must be actually engaged in conduct- 
ig a pharmacy and shall not hold office for more 
ftan one five-vear period. 

I Mr. Brantley moved the adoption of the 
bction and his motion was seconded by Mr. 

i There was considerable discussion of the 
aatter. which was participated in by Messrs. 
fJeamer, Eubanks, Rose, A. B. Kunkle, W. 
I Moose, J. C. Hood, P. J. Suttlemyre, D. 
I Boone, H. C. McAllister, and Paul Thomp- 
on. There was a feeling that the new sec- 
ion possessed merit, but that it should be 
!e-worded. Finally, upon the motion of 
Messrs. Boone-J. T. Usher, the President 
/as instructed to appoint a committee to 
e-phrase the amendment and bring the 
aatter up again at the afternoon session. 

President Gattis appointed the following 
ommittee to re-word the proposed new sec- 
ion to the By-Laws: Messrs. J. C. Brant - 
ey, Chairman, Paul H. Thompson, R. R. 
Copeland, W. L. Moose, and J. C. Hood. 

At this point the meeting was turned over 
o Chairman I. T. Reamer of the Section on 
Practical Pharmacy and Dispensing in order 
hat the program begun the afternoon be- 
ore might be concluded. 


Chairman Reamer called upon Mr. W. J. 
Smith for a paper on ' ' Tour Prescription 
department — An Asset or Liability. ' ' 


By W. J. Smith 

This paper was carried in full in the Sep- 
tember issue of the Carolina Journal of 

This concluded the program of the Sec- 
tion on Practical Pharmacy and Dispensing 
and Chairman Reamer was given the sincere 
appreciation of the convention for his in- 
teresting and helpful program. 

The Report of the Visitation Committee 
was called for and was read by Chairman 
Paul B. Bissette. 


Your Committee, with all members present, 
visited the State University School of Pharmacy 
on May 23. After a most interesting conference 
with members of the faculty, we spent an hour 
interviewing the senior class. 

We were the guests of the faculty at a luncheon 
in the new dining hall and were later taken on 
a tour of Chapel Hill by Acting Dean Rose. 

The afternoon was devoted to an inspection of 
the laboratories, classrooms, storage rooms, 
library, etc. 

"We wish to offer the following recommenda- 
tions : 

1. 75% of all the students who enter the 
School of Pharmacy have had no drug store 
experience yet more than 90% of its graduates 
go to work in retail drug stores. (These statis- 
tics were furnished your Committee by Dean 
Rose). "We, therefore, recommend that consid- 
erably more time be given to instruction in prac- 
tical drug store operation. 

2. Prescription counters in the Pharmacy lab- 
oratory should be equipped with individual tele- 
phones so that students may acquire practice in 
taking prescriptions by telephone. 

3. Facilities should be provided for supplying 
hot water to all laboratories. 

4. The library should be furnished with new 
books and an additional supply of the most-used 
volumes now in the library. 

5. A proper ventilating system should be pro- 
vided in all laboratories for the removal of poi- 
sonous fumes and gases. We understand that these 
laboratories are the only ones in the University 
that are not so equipped. We believe this condi- 
tion to be a hazard to life and health and one 
that should be corrected immediately. 

6. A central stock-room for all supplies should 
be installed with a competent full-time person in 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

7. We believe that the School of Pharmacy is 
manned by a faculty that is outstanding in mod- 
ern-day pharmaceutical education.

Branch was accepted with thanks. 

Chairman Paul H. Thompson was callecl 
upon for a Report of the Legislative Coim 


Chairman Thompson presented an infor : 
mal report stating that inasmuch as the Gem 
eral Assembly had not met during the pas 
twelve months the Committee had had very 
little to do. The members had, however 
kept in touch with trends in pharmacy both 
in the State and in the Nation. He paie 
particular tribute to Congressman Carl T 
Durham, pharmacist representative in tin 
National Congress. In conclusion, he men 
tioned the primaries to be held within a few 
days and urged his listeners to "support the] 
men best fitted for office." 

Mr. C. L. Eubanks was called upon td 
present the honor guest. 

In a very happy manner Mr. Eubank.' 
presented to the audience Congressman Car 
T. Durham, who was associated with tha

Congressman Durham expressed his appre- 
ciation of the warm tribute that had been 
paid to him stating "that I have and always 

iiwill have the warmest spot in my heart for 

lithe druggists of North Carolina." Con- 
tinuing, he regretted that he had not had 

■the opportunity to prepare a formal address 

has the situation in Washington had de- 
manded a large part of his time during the 
preceding ten days and he had also been 

: ' ' busy in North Carolina ' ' as the primaries 
were just a few days away and he was seek- 
ing re-election to Congress. He then gave 

[a resume of the national situation as it 
appeared to him at that time and of the 
World War conflict. In conclusion, he em- 
phasized the fact that he was putting forth 
every effort "twenty-four hours a day" to 
help his fellow-druggists in the Halls of 

Congressman Durham was w r armly thanked 
for his timely remarks. 

President Gattis presented to the conven- 
tion Mr. Carl Goerch, of Raleigh, humorist 

land editor of "The State." 

Mr. Goerch entertained the audience in 
his usual happy fashion for about fifteen 
minutes. He told several amusing stories 
and in conclusion assured his listeners that 

:he was always anxious to be of help to the 
pharmacists of North Carolina in every way 

; possible. 

Upon motion the meeting adjourned. 


The sixth and final session of the conven- 
tion was called to order by President Gattis 
; at three o 'clock on Thursday afternoon. 

Chairman Ralph P. Rogers presented the

These applications for membership were 
duly accepted. 

President Gattis called on Chairman 
Brantley for a report of the Committee 
appointed at the morning session to re-word 

the suggested addition to the By-Laws. 
(See page 151). 

Chairman Brantley stated that his com- 
mittee offered the following as a substitute 
for the section he had originally proposed 
as Sec. 5 of Article 1 of the By-Laws: 

Section 5. The North Carolina Pharmaceutical 
Association shall elect at each annual meeting 
from among the most skillful pharmacists in 
North Carolina, for a term of five years, one 
pharmacist to the State Board of Pharmacy. The 
same must have been registered as a pharmacist 
in North Carolina at least five years previous to 
his election ; he must be actually engaged in phar- 
macy ; and he shall not succeed himself ; Provided 
that this does not prohibit the re-election of any 
member of the present Board for one additional 

Upon motion the new section was adopted, 
the ballot being taken by a rising vote. 

The Report of the Committee on Time 
and Place of Next Meeting was called for. 

Chairman Eubanks stated that his Com- 
mittee recommended Durham as the meeting 
place for 1941, the time to be left to the 
Executive Committee. 

Upon the motion of Messrs. Copeland- 
Thomas the report was accepted. 

At this point Assistant Secretary C. M. 
Andrews reported that during the meeting 
$520.00 in dues had been collected from old 
members and $40.00 from new affiliates. 
The registration figures were as follows: 
Members, 240; Visitors, 356; T. M. A. and 
guests, 348. 

The report was accepted with thanks. 

The Report of the Resolutions Committee 
was called for. 

Chairman McDufne moved the adoption of 
the following resolution presented by Mr. 
J. A. Goode : 


WHEREAS, the Fair Trade Committee of the 
N. C. P. A. has functioned efficiently and in the 
interest of every retail druggist in the state, and 
although its activities have been cramped, due 
to the lack of funds, the net results have been 
most gratifying, therefore, 

BE IT RESOLVED by the N. C. P. A. that 
it hereby approves the work of the Fair Trade 
Committee, expresses its appreciation of that 
work, and urges all members of this Association 
to support fair trade in this State, not only in 
spirit, but also financially, when called upon to 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the grate- 
ful appreciation of this Association be extended 
to F. O. Bowman, who served as Secretary of 
the Fair Trade Committee without remuneration. 

The resolution was duly adopted. 
Chairman MeDuffie moved the adoption 
of the following resolution: 


WHEREAS, Nationally Advertised Brands 
Week has identified the retail drug store in the 
public mind as the logical place at which to 
purchase drugs, medicines, cosmetics, and related 
supplies; and 

WHEREAS, Nationally Advertised Brands 
Week has amply demonstrated that it not only 
substantially increases drug store volume in these 
commodities, but brings additional business to 
other departments of the drug store as well; and 

WHEREAS, Nationally Advertised Brands 
Week has aroused the retail druggists of the coun- 
try to the advantages of adopting modern mer- 
chandising methods, therefore 

BE IT RESOLVED by the North Carolina 
Pharmaceutical Association that it hereby en- 
dorses and approves Nationally Advertised Brands 
Week and urges all retail druggists in the State 
to co-operate actively in making the 1940 ob- 
servance of Nationally Advertised Brands Week 
a success, so that they may receive the fullest 
benefits and profits from this national mass sell- 
ing merchandising event. 

The resolution was duly adopted. 
Chairman MeDuffie read the following res- 
olution presented by W. J. Smith: 


WHEREAS, the indiscriminate sale and dis- 
tribution of appliances, drugs and medicinal prep- 
arations intended or having special utility for the 
prevention of venereal diseases constitute a men- 
ace to public health, and 

WHEREAS, fourteen states have enacted legis- 
lation limiting the sale of the above mentioned ap- 
pliances and preparations to pharmacists or to 
drug stores employing one or more registered 
pharmacists, and, 

WHEREAS, the Supreme Court of the United 
States has upheld the validity of the above legis- 
lation, and 

WHEREAS, the enactment of contraceptive 
legislation in Xorth Carolina will aid and support 
the anti-venereal program now being carried on 
by the North Carolina Board of Health, therefore, 

BE IT RESOLVED, that the members of the 
North Carolina Pharmaceutical Association go on 
record as favoring the enactment of legislation 
which will limit the sale of appliances, drugs 
and medicinal preparations intended or having 

special utility for the prevention of venereal dis- 
eases to retail drug stores operated by or em- 
ploying one or more registered pharmacists.

business can be taken care of in two days, there- 

BE IT RESOLVED, that we return to the old 
plan of beginning the meetings with an evening 
session, and concluding the convention two days 
I later. 

The Chairman stated that the Resolutions 
Committee felt that this was a matter that 
should be referred to the Executive Com-

lege of passing the suggestion on to that 
i group.

efforts ; 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Presi- 
dent of this Association appoint a committee to

terial generally available to the pharmacists of 
; this State and that said committee be instructed 
1 to devise a method for the compiling and distri- 
bution and report its findings to the Executive 
Committee without delay.

Mr. Welfare seconded the motion and the

Chairman McDuffie stated that his Com-

lution, presented by Mr. Sam Welfare, and 
moved its adoption: 


I hereby move that a rising vote of thanks be 
extended to the druggists of Charlotte, to the City 
of Charlotte, and to all individuals and organiza- 
tions who have co-operated in making the 1940 
convention of the North Carolina Pharmaceutical 
Association one of the most successful and de- 
lightful in the history of our organization. 

The resolution was adopted amid much 

Chairman McDuffie stated that a resolu- 
tion had been handed to his Committee 
calling upon the druggists to co-operate with 
the physicians and the public health officers 
in the common fight against venereal disease. 
The Resolution Committee did not act upon 
this resolution as the convention had previ- 
ously gone on record as pledging its support 
to this movement. 

Upon motion of Chairman McDuffie, sec- 
onded by Mr. Haupt, the report of the Reso- 
lutions Committee was adopted as a whole. 

The report of the Committee on the Presi- 
dent 's Address was called for. This will be

Upon the motion of Messrs. Rimmer- 
Haupt, the report of the Nominating Com- 
mittee was accepted. 

The election of a member of the Board 
of Pharmacy was the next order of business. 

Messrs. Melvin-E. Haupt placed in nomi- 
nation Mr. C. R. Whitehead, and Mr. M. B. 
Melvin was named for the office by Messrs. 
W. L. Moose-McAllister. A ballot was taken 
and Mr. Melvin was elected. 

Mr. R. P. Lyon suggested that each year 
the Local Secretary shall be instructed to 
keep a portfolio of convention matters 
which he will turn over to the succeeding 
official in charge of local arrangements. 

Upon the motion of Messrs. Rogers-Cope- 
land, Mr. Lyon's suggestion was adopted. 

At this point Mr. Lyon presented to the 
audience Mr. T. C. Yearwood. 

Mr. Yearwood declared that there was 
an imperative need for registered druggists 
in several Charlotte drug stores, and he felt 
that similar conditions prevailed elsewhere. 
"What are we going to do to overcome this 
situation? Such a state of affairs is ab- 
solutely our fault. ' ' The speaker then re- 
called his boyhood days in the drug store 
when he had worked hard from early morn- 
ing until late at night with a small salary 
in a determination to prepare himself for 
his chosen profession. He told too of how 
his employer had paid part of his college 
expenses. Continuing he said: "We in the 
Charlotte Drug Club will in the next year 
contact suitable boys of high-school age 
and get them jobs in drug stores. We will 
follow the careers of these boys closely and 
will aid them financially in going through 
college. That is one way that our organiza- 
tion can bring new blood into the profession 
and aid in the development of a larger 
number of, as well as better pharmacists. I 
would like to see the other drug clubs co- 
operate with each other in trying to get 
such young men interested in pharmacy and 
to train them to make better pharmacists so 

that they will be a credit both to them- 
selves and to their profession. 

President Gattis expressed appreciation to 
Acting Secretary Rose and Miss Noble for 
their services. 

At this point the following officers were 
installed to serve for the year 1940-1941 :

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

Acting Secretary-Treasurer.

To His Excellency, 
Governor Clyde B. Hoey, 
Raleigh, N. C. 


In compliance with Section 6654 of the 
Consolidated Statutes of North Carolina, I 
have the honor to submit to your Excellency 
and the North Carolina Pharmaceutical As- 
sociation a report of the proceedings of the 
North Carolina Board of Pharmacy for the 
year ending May 31, 1940. 


During the year ending May 31, 1940, 
two meetings of the Board were held, both 
at Chapel Hill, North Carolina. These were 
held June 13 and 14, 1939, and November 
28 and 29, 1939; the first meeting being the 
annual meeting. 

At the June meeting of the Board, Mr. 
F. W. Hancock of Oxford, North Carolina, 
presented his commission from the Governor 
as a member of the Board for a term of 
five (5) years, from April 28, 1939. At- 
tached thereto was the oath of office taken 
before the Clerk of Superior Court of Gran- 
ville County. Upon motion, he was unani- 
mously re-elected Secretary-Treasurer of the

Inspection Work 

Mr. H. C. McAllister, one of our Inspec- 
tors, has been on duty doing inspection work 
the entire year. Mr. W. J. Smith, the other 
Assistant Inspector, was on duty, doing in- 
spection work about one half of the year 
and doing part-time work a part of the 
other half of the year. I wish to call your 
attention to their reports which follow. In 
these you will find that both of them have 
secured evidence in two of the most impor- 
tant cases now pending in Asheville and 
"Washington, North Carolina, courts, Mr. 
McAllister in the Washington and Belhaven 
case, and Mr. Smith in the Goforth case at 
Asheville. We have employed good lawyers 
in both cases and hope to win them. 

We expect to employ two Assistant In- 
spectors for the entire time the coming 

report or h. c. McAllister 

Assistant Inspector 

Chapel Hill, N. C., 
504B North Street, 
May 1, 1940. 
To the Members of 
The North Carolina Board of Pharmacy: 

I have the honor to submit herewith my 
report of inspection work from May 1, 1939, 
to May 1, 1940. 

I have made detailed inspections of 868 
establishments in 222 towns. These inspec- 
tions covered the following types of busi- 

Retail Drug Stores 839 

Soda Shops 4 

Hospitals 7 

Grocery Stores 3 

Doctor's Offices 1° 

Remedy Company 1 

Wholesale Drug Store 1 

Drug Laboratory 1 

I have brought the following indictments, 
three in number: 

C. B. Newman, Jr., Milton, N. C. Charges — 
operating a drug store and compounding pre- 
scriptions in violation of Sects. 6667, 6668, 6669 
and 6670. The said C. B. Newman not being a 
registered pharmacist. Second offense. The de- 
fendant pleaded guilty. On motion of the Solici- 
tor, prayer for judgment is continued on the 
following terms and conditions : 

1. That the defendant pay the cost of the ac- 
tion to be taxed by the clerk. 

2. That the defendant surrender to the Sheriff 
of Caswell County all of the drugs and med- 
icines that he has in his possession in viola- 
tion of the Pharmacy Law. 

3. That the defendant execute a good and valid 
bond in the sum of three hundred dollars, 
payable to the State of North Carolina con- 
ditioned on the defendant's not selling or 
handling any drugs in violation of the Phar- 
macy Laws. 

Second case : H. C. Suddreth, Kinston, N. C. 
Charges, causing or permitting a drug store or 
pharmacy to be operated not under the supervi- 
sion of a registered pharmacist for the compound- 
ing of physicians' prescriptions and selling drugs 
and poisons in violation of the law. The case was 
nol prossed with leave upon the condition that 
the violation be corrected. 

Third case: W. N. Wilkins, Kinston, N. C. 
Charges — compounding and dispensing drugs and 
poisons, not being a registered pharmacist. Case 
was nol prossed upon the condition that the vio- 
lations be corrected. 

Several cases of flagrant violations of the 
law have required much attention during 
the past year. The unusual nature of these 
cases has necessitated a cautious procedure. 
However, I am pleased to report that they 
have proceeded to the hands of an attorney 
with instructions to use the legal means best 
suited for their correction. 

This year more informal calls were made 
for the purpose of instructing the pharma- 
cists in so far as the available information 
permitted concerning the requirements of 
the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. This is 
a very stringent piece of regulatory legisla- 
tion. It is urgent that the pharmacists give 
it their serious attention, and voice their ap- 
proval or objection to regulations promul- 
gated under the Act when the hearings on 
the same are held. 

I have placed 12 Poison, Hypnotic and 
Exempt Narcotic Preparations Registers. 
With the passage of the above Act, a large 
number of pharmacists discontinued the sale 
of Barbituric Acid preparations except on 
physicians' prescriptions. This practice elim- 
inated the use of part of the book. 

As has been the practice of the inspectors 
for the past few years, some of my time 
has been spent in the interest of the North 
Carolina Pharmaceutical Association. I 
have collected $896.50 in dues and secured 
21 new members. 

Respectfully submitted, 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 



Assistant Inspector for the 

North Carolina Board of Pharmacy 

1220 14th Street, 
Hickory, N. C, 
September 1, 1940. 
To the Members of 
The North Carolina Board of Pharmacy: 

I have the honor to submit herewith my 
report of inspection work from May 1, 1939, 
to September 1, 1939. 

During this four-month period I visited 
488 retail stores located in 128 Western 
North Carolina towns. In each instance the 
Poison and Hypnotic Eegisters were cheeked, 
licenses examined, and information given as 
to compliance with the Harrison Narcotic 
Act, the Wage and Hour Bill, etc. 

A considerable portion of my time was 
given to the inspection of grocery stores, 
5c and 10c stores, cafes, etc., wherein large 
stocks of drugs were found in numerous in- 
stances. Non-permitted drugs were removed 
from the shelves and arrangements made 
for legal disposal of the goods. In the ma- 
jority of instances I found the proprietor in 
ignorance of our Pharmacy Laws relating 
to the sale of poisons and hypnotics but 
glad to co-operate once their intent was 

The Board of Pharmacy kindly allowed 
me to carry the Pharmaceutical Association 
program to the druggists of Western North 
Carolina. This was a pleasure as I found 
many of our pharmacists willing and eager 
to discuss ways and means whereby our pro- 
fessional group could be banded together in 
a more progressive one. North Carolina 
Pharmaceutical Association dues amounting 
to $178 were forwarded to Miss Alice Noble 
together with properly signed applications 
from seven new members. 

An average of fifteen letters were received 
each week from pharmacists, the majority 
of them wanting to know where they could 
get a job or where they could locate a phar- 
macist for their store. This particular part 
of my work was always welcomed as it 
gave me an opportunity to bring employer- 
employee together. In view of the fact that 
there has always been and always will be 
changes in our employer-employee relation- 
ship, I suggest that a "Pharmacists' Em- 

ployment Bureau" be set up by either the 
North Carolina Board of Pharmacy or the 
N.C.P.A. to supply dependable information 
to those seeking same. My constant corre- 
spondence with members of our pharmaceu- 
tical fraternity leads me to believe that such 
a bureau would be well worth any initial 
effort to bring it into existence. 

In most instances violations of our Phar- 
macy Laws were corrected without resorting 
to legal action; however, in a number of 
cases we were unable to correct conditions 
without enlisting the support of the courts. 
Two such eases are listed herewith : 

North Carolina 
Lincoln County 

In the Recorder's Court 
before K. B. Nixon, Recorder 

State of North Carolina 


M. C. Cheatham 


Upon the call of the above case, the defendant 
tendered a plea of nole contendere. The State in- 
troduced W. J. Smith and R. L. Wilson who 
testified as witnesses in the case. The State also 
introduced a certificate from F. W. Hancock, Sec- 
retary and Treasurer of the North Carolina Board 
of Pharmacy, to the effect that M. O. Cheatham 
is not registered as a pharmacist or an assistant 
pharmacist in the State of North Carolina. The 
State then rested and the defendant rested, de- 
clining to introduce evidence. Verdict of the 
court : Guilty as charged in the warrant. Judg- 
ment of the court is that the defendant pay a 
fine of $25.00 and the costs of the action to be 
made up and taxed by the Clerk. This judgment 
may be suspended upon the following conditions : 

1. That the defendant pay the costs of the 

2. That the defendant not violate any of the 
pharmacy laws of the State of North Carolina, 
and particularly Section 6668 of the Consolidated 
Statutes of North Carolina.

One store, The Childs Drug Company of 
Lincolnton, N. C, was permanently closed, 
partly through the action of the North Caro- 
lina Board of Pharmacy and certain credi- 
tors of the establishment. One case is now 
scheduled for trial, all the evidence having 
been secured and a True Bill found by the 
grand jury. This case will be reported in 
detail in my next annual report to the 

For the splendid co-operation and support 
received from the Secretary-Treasurer, Mr. 
F. W. Hancock, and from Mr. H. C. McAl- 
lister, Assistant Inspector for the North 
Carolina Board of Pharmacy, I offer my 
sincere thanks. 

Respectfully submitted,

tion of the N. C. P. A. This brings the 
total number of Fair Trade manufacturers 
now' operating under the North Carolina 
Fair Trade Law to 273. On the whole, 
the manufacturers are eager to have their 
minimum prices observed and, in most cases, 
they see to it that they are. By reporting 
all violations that come to your attention 
to the Fair Trade Committee, you will ren- 
der a distinct service to the Fair Trade 
Movement in this State.

During recent years various agencies have focused widespread attention to anti- 
tereal programs, one of which is being actively sponsored in this state at the present 
Le by the State Board of Health under the capable direction of Doctor Carl Eeynolds. 
armacists are in position to facilitate the effectiveness of this commendable work and 

I do so if given an opportunity to participate in the program. 

In any program designed to control and eradicate venereal diseases, serious consider- 
on should be given to the manufacture, distribution and sale of drugs, appliances and 
dicinal preparations intended or having special utility for the prevention of venereal 
teases. The writer through his experiences as Assistant Inspector for the North 
rolina Board of Pharmacy knows that a large percentage of such merchandise dis- 
buted from retail outlets other than drug stores is substandard and gives to the Con- 
ner a false sense of security which is often highly dangerous to health. This un- 
althy situation should be corrected at once. 

Fourteen states have already recognized the menace of substandard prophylactics 
d have enacted legislation controlling the standards and sale of this merchandise. Since 
3 enactment of contraceptive legislation will aid and support the anti-venereal program 
w being carried on by the North Carolina Board of Health and since such legislation has 
3eived the endorsement of the North Carolina Pharmaceutical Association, active efforts 
e now being made to secure such health protection for our own citizens. 

F. 0. Bowman, attorney for the Association, has just completed a Prophylactic 

II incorporating the best features of the 14 state acts now in force together with such 
anges as suggested by members of the Attorney General's office. Copies of this Bill are 
ing mailed to members of the N. C. P. A. Legislative Committee for their consideration 
d it is hoped favorable legislative action can be secured on this Bill during the next 
ssion of the General Assembly of North Carolina. — W. J. S.

Turner F. Currens Retires 

Turner F. Currens, Vice-President and 
Manager of the Eastern Sales Division of 
The Norwich Pharmacal Company, retired 
from active duty September 1, 1940, after 
more than thirty-five years of distinguished 
service. He will continue as a Director of 
the Company. 

Mr. Currens started his career with Nor- 
wich as a sales representative in central 
Illinois in February, 1904. He made him- 
self felt from the very start and it was 
not long until it was clear he possessed exec- 
utive ability and as a result of this and his 
outstanding sales record he was promoted 
to the Managership of the Company's New 
York Branch, January 1, 1913, and has since 
made his headquarters in New York City. 

For some time past Mr. Currens has ex- 
pressed a desire for more time in which to 
travel and to enjoy the fruits of his success. 

In the early part of this year he specifics ill 
requested that he be relieved of his rmri 
duties. Now that this has been arran{| 
it is the hope of his many North Carolj 
friends that he will find the same i\ 
measure of enjoyment and satisfaction

Weary of having customers quote a ma

certain druggist sent to the catalog hoi 
for one. He left it wrapped, just as 
came, putting it in the case with his ov 
stock. The next customer who quoted th 
48 cent mail-order bottle was offered tl 
package. "Here is one of them and y 
can have it for their price." 

"Open it up," said the customer, "so 
can see what it is like." "No," the dru 
gist responds; "here is their picture of 
and here is the way they send it to yo 
I sell it on the same terms. If you dor. 
like it, send it back to them and get yo 
money back." He still has that package u 
opened and he has had little trouble selliijf 
his own hot-water bottles. The same plf? 
could be followed with other items. Try I 
if you are called upon to meet such eon 
petition. — Pacific Drug Review.

National Advertised Brands Week 

(Note:— Hundreds of North Carolina druggists 
lentified themselves in the promotion of National 
advertised Brands Week and were well repaid 
3 r their efforts. Moss Salley and his right-hand 
mn, J. W. Harrison, of Asheville, prepared and 
■resented the material below over Station VVWISU 
'he Journal, has received a number of well- 
leserved comments on this talk. — Ed.) 

It is a distinct privilege to be one of a 
rlroup of local druggists invited by Station 
'VWNC to speak to you this week and we 
Ire all deeply grateful for this opportunity, 
[pharmacy is the art of selecting, extract- 
ing, preparing and compounding medicines 
ffrom vegetable, animal and mineral sub- 
stances and is an art as old as man him- 
self. However, records of man's achieve- 
nents in this art are known only since about 
hro thousand years before Christ. The prac- 
tice of medicine and pharmacy, until the 
niddle of the eighteenth century, was con- 
sidered as one art. It remained for John 
Morgan, a disciple of Benjamin Franklin, 
to be the pioneer who promulgated the ad- 
vantages of separating the two arts and 
making them separate professions. 

It was not until 1821 that the first col- 
lege of pharmacy was organized. This col- 
lege in Philadelphia lent impetus to the 
growing profession. Soon, more schools 
'were organized, until at the present time, 
almost every University has its school of 

The requirements for practicing the pro- 
fession are: A four-year course in Phar- 
macy and its allied studies of Materia 
Medica, Pharmacology, Pharmacognosy, 
Chemistry, Botany, Posology, Toxicology, et 
cetera; one year's experience under the 
guidance of a licensed pharmacist, and, of 
course, a passing grade in an examination 
;by the State Board of Pharmacy, the mem- 
bers of which are appointed by the Gover- 
nor of the State. 

Your pharmacist of today has his con- 
cept of integrity in dealing with his fellows ; 
his concept of honor in the practice of his 

It is entirely in keeping with these ideals 
that we druggists of Asheville, together with 
the druggists of America, welcome the op- 
portunity this week to participate in Na- 
tional Advertised Brands Week, for we offer 
you merchandise of unquestioned merit put 
out by reputable manufacturers; manufac- 
turers who are proud enough of the quality 
of their products to back them up with 
national advertising. 

So visit vour neighborhood druggist this 

week, whoever he may be, and see his dis- 
play of products you know at prices you 
like to pay. 

He is always ready to serve you, keeping 
his store open long hours for your conven- 
ience. Even after his store is closed, he is 
as near as the telephone which has super- 
seded the night bell — that clarion symbol 
which was, in former days, connected with 
his sleeping quarters up over the drug store. 

Your druggist is w T ell versed in the affairs 
of the day: he gives of his time in discus- 
sing with you the news of the day; of 
Aunt Susan's high blood pressure; of little 
Mary's new tooth or of Junior's earache. 
He helps steer you to the right doctor for 
your particular trouble and lends a sym- 
pathetic ear to your personal problems. 

"The Champ" 

Bill Burwell of Eli Lilly, G. M. and J. B. 
Bowers of Owens and Minor Drug Company, 
J. G. Vick of Parke, Davis and Company 
and Paul Bissette of Wilson won't have 
any difficulty in recognizing the gentleman 
pictured here holding the 22-pound amber- 
jack. To those of you who weren't so for- 
tunate as to accompany the above mentioned 
group on their fishing trip to Morehead 
City, I might mention that the name of the 
proud angler is B. C. Sheffield, manager 
and owner of the Warsaw Drug Company, 
Warsaw. After catching the big fish, Mr. 
Sheffield was named "The Champ" by mem- 
bers of the party.

As We Travel Over the State 

"W. J. Smith 

C. J. James of Hillsboro is saving nickels 
and two -dollar bills toward an anticipated 
trip to New York and Philadelphia this 
Fall. His "fund" now consists of 24 pounds 
of nickles and 23 two-dollar bills. Save a 
few extra bills for me, "C. J.," and we'll 
go along for protection! 

My advice to A. Hitler is not to pick a 
quarrel with Joe Anderson of New Bern. 
He has an arsenal of over 200 guns and 
pistols some of which look mighty deadly. 
Although some of the guns haven't been 
fired since "D. Boone cilled a bar" up in 
the Blue Ridge Mountains, they could be 
mustered into service without much diffi- 
culty. Mr. Anderson also finds time to col- 
lect Indian arrowheads and pursue his hobby 
of photography. 

If you have a desire for "the wide-open 
spaces," you might write Mr. Witt Springer 
of McLean, Texas. He tells me that he 
has two stores which he would like to sell. 

D. B. Hood of Eichlands sells more maga- 
zines per capita than any other news agency 
in eight southern states. 

M. C. Miles, pharmacist of Henderson, 
has a complete set of The Carolina Jour- 
nal op Pharmacy. He is particularly proud 
of his Vol I, No. 1 copy of the Journal 
containing a picture of the late William 
Simpson of Raleigh. 

"Mistake" is the name of the 23-foot boat 
which G. P. Johnson of Jacksonville has just 
purchased for deep-sea fishing. We're ex- 
pecting some tall fishing tales from that 
section pretty soon. 

Roger McDuffie of Greensboro recently 
presented the School of Pharmacy museum 
with a statement from W. C. Porter & Co., 
Druggists and Apothecaries of Greensboro, 
dated July 1, 1874. The itemized statement 
shows five prescriptions were filled for James 
Donnell from July 21 to Dec. 4, 1873, at a 
total charge of $3.50. 

For 22 years J. M. Hall, Sr. of Wilming-

of Wilmington for seven years and is now

pharmacist of Reidsville, installed a rl 
frigerated box in his store and paint* < 
"Biologieals" at the top of the door i]

he kept his biologieals properly stored. S| 
many of Phil's customers questioned hhl 
about his "Biological" refrigerator — belie' \ 
ing it to be a new model of refrigerator- 1 
that he was forced to place the letterin |

printed in the September issue of the Jouiil 
nal. Since I received the correct answe j 
from the five pharmacists mentioned abovl 
in the same mail, I am publishing five winl

Due to the fact that this problem evoked 
such wide-spread interest over the state, a] 
evidenced by the large number of letter.! 
which I received, I am again presenting i \

Jeport of the N. A. R. D. Advisory 
Fair Trade Committee 

Presented by J. A. Goode, Chairman 

I (Note- — This report was presented at the 1940 
Convention of the N. A. R. D. by one of the 
nost loyal champions of Fair Trade legislation in 
ihe United States. The Journal is happy to 
present the report for your thoughtful considera- 
tion. — Ed.) 

In submitting this, the third Annual Ee- 
port of your Fair Trade Advisory Com- 
[nittee, we do so in the light of another 
tear's operation of the law, and somewhat 
In the nature of a supplement to our report 
submitted last year. 

' Your Committee has cooperated in every 
way possible with the survey just com- 
pleted by the Druggists Eesearch Bureau 
'and the various state associations in their 
effort to formulate legal plans for the 
proper operation of Fair Trade legislation. 
fin a sort of general review of Fair Trade 
from its beginning up to the present date 
your Committee feels it timely to exhibit - 
the claims originally made for Fair Trade, 
rand, by the same process of reasoning, re- 
view the proofs established by Fair Trade 
in its three years of national operation. Let 
ius see, then, just what these claims were. 
They were four in number, and embraced 
: the following cardinal principles: (l),The 
proponents claimed that Fair Trade was 
designated for the purpose of outlawing 
predatory competition, and in harmony with 
I the principle of anti-trust legislation. (2) 
:' The proponents claimed that Fair Trade 
would prevent the destruction of the manu- 
, facturer's good will in the eyes of both 
the public and the dealer. (3) The pro- 
» ponents claimed that Fair Trade would act 
as a substantial safeguard in the interest 
of the public, by preventing the sale of 
• counterfeit and inferior merchandise through 
the unscrupulous practices of cut-throat 
\ competition. (4) The proponents claimed 
. that Fair Trade was a practical, legal me- 
dium for stimulating and maintaining 
legitimate competition. That its principles 
were consistent with consumer objectives by 
; assuring the greatest value for the price 
paid. These four original claims in behalf 
of Fair Trade represent the cement, the 
I sand, the stone, and the labor which went 
into the construction of its solid foundation. 
At the time of the passage of Fair Trade 

and up to the present date, responsible 
proponents of the legislation have made no 
claim of the intention to legislate at the 
expense of the public, and to the everlast- 
ing credit of the sponsors of Fair Trade, 
it can truthfully be said that Fair Trade 
has not cost the public one thin dime. On 
the platform of this Association, in the halls 
of forty-four state legislatures, in the halls 
of our national Congress and in the press, 
the pro and con of the philosophy of Fair 
Trade have been argued. Its merits and de- 
merits have been extolled by able advo- 
cates. The whole truth of the matter is 
that Fair Trade legislation stood on its 
merits alone, and won. 

Having listed above the original claims 
for Fair Trade by its sponsors, let us now 
review Fair Trade during its three years of 
national operation. We can do so with 
pride and confidence. Your Committee lists 
as follows proof of its accomplishment: (1) 
Fair Trade has been held constitutional by 
every single state supreme court to which 
it has been presented for final review. (2) 
Fair Trade has been held constitutional and 
in the public's interest by the Supreme Court 
of the United States, the court of complete 
and final authority. (3) Fair Trade, by 
reason of its merits, has attracted the in- 
terest of the National Commissioners on 
Uniform State Laws, and gives promise to 
receiving their highest commendation. (4.) 
Fair Trade has prevented the sale of coun- 
terfeit merchandise and encouraged the sale 
of quality merchandise. Valid court records 
are offered in support of this statement. By 
reason of the sound principles of competi- 
tion established by Fair Trade legislation, 
the courts have encouraged its enforcement 
with rulings which marked distinct gains 
during the year in upholding the validity 
of retailer suits, and which permits any re- 
tailer to bring suit to restrain Fair Trade 
violations, irrespective of whether he is or 
is not a signer of a Fair Trade contract. 
(5) There is evidence on every hand that 
Fair Trade has stimulated competition be- 
tween manufacturers, with the result that 
the public now receives more quantity and 
better quality for its money than it did 
prior to the advent of Fair Trade. For ex- 
ample razor blades are 50% cheaper than 
they were prior to Fair Trade. Mouth anti- 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

septies, tooth brushes and shaving creams 
average 40% less. More than one thousand 
other articles sold in drug stores have been 
reduced in their wholesale list price, by rea- 
son of the competition between manufac- 
turers, stimulated by Fair Trade. Anyone 
informed on the subject of competition 
knows that, from the consumer's point of 
view, competition between manufacturers 
produces greater value for the price paid 
than does competition between retailers, for 
the very simple reason that the manufacturer 
determines his price in light of his com- 
petition, and by reason of his greater mar- 
gin of profit is, in most instances, in posi- 
tion to give greater value than could the 
retailer if he sold at his actual cost or even 
less. In other words, one of the very sound 
principles of Fair Trade legislation has had 
the effect of emphasizing competition to a 
greater extent between manufacturers than 
was possible prior to its advent. (6) In 
one of the most accurate and exhaustive 
surveys ever conducted in the field of dis- 
tribution, with every question of doubt ruled 
in favor of opponents of Fair Trade, it was 
found that the national drug store bill had 
been reduced as a result of Fair Trade legis- 
lation. Fair Trade has accomplished the 
full purpose and intent of both the Sherman 
and Clayton anti-trust acts. It has pointed 
the way to the Federal Trade Commission 
in maintaining and stimulating fair and 
open competition in the interest of the pub- 
lic, by legal and court-approved processes. 
The merits of the record of Fair Trade 
legislation prove the case in favor of Fair 

With these indisputable facts on the credit 
side of Fair Trade, the sponsors of Fair 
Trade need have no worry as to the final 
verdict of the jury of public opinion. All 
that the public needs to know are the sim- 
ple, true facts about Fair Trade, and it is 
the hope of your Committee that you will 
not fail to inform yourselves through the 
statistical and factual data about Fair Trade 
legislation, which may be obtained through 
the National Association of Retail Drug- 
gists and the drug press in general. 

In familiarizing yourselves with the sur- 
vey conducted by the Druggists Research 
Bureau, and previously referred to in this 
report, it should be borne in mind that ap- 

proximately 75% of the total drug busines 
by reason of their geographical location, 
done by the small retail druggists in tow 
of ten thousand population or less. To g 
the full significance of this statement, 
should be noted that 71% of the people < 
this country live in towns of ten thousai' 
or less. Under Fair Trade, in these sma 
towns where the majority of the people liv 
the public has been saved $4.07 out of evei 
$100 spent for drug store merchandise, 
might well be emphasized here that sin< 
there are approximately three times tl 
number of people living in small town 
in a national or total sense, to the numbe 
living in the big cities that there is approx 
mately three times the dollar value of bus 
ness done with the net result of approx' 
mately three times the saving to the publi ' 
over all. This statement of fact offsets' 
by its advantage to the majority of th 
people of the country, the slight increase 
in a few of the larger cities, where cut. 
throat competition was more prevalent pruH 
to Fair Trade. While the report clearli 
shows a reduction in the national drug stor 1 
bill in dollars and cents, it is not the onli 
advantage the public has received, and you 
Committee feels it is reasonable to assum- 
that the public has received an additional 
advantage in the safe-guard it enjoy: 
against counterfeit and inferior merchan] 
dise, as a result of Fair Trade legislation, I 
The results of another investigation, con'^ 
ducted entirely independent of Fair Trade] 
investigation, might also be noted here, and] 
we refer to the report compiled by the Nal 
tional Industrial Conference Board, whc 
conducted a very exhaustive research intci 
the cost of living. Let us see what hapj 
pened. Selecting the years in which Fair 
Trade has been in operation, in a national 
sense, and comparing them to the figures; 
which form the basis of this report to the' 
cost of living prior to this period, we find 
that the cost of living over all rose from; 
82.6 points to 85.2 points, or almost 3| 
points. In the same period the price of 
drug store products, under Fair Trade, de-$ 
creased approximately 1% over all. Your 
Committee makes bold to say that had Fair: 
Trade been as general in its application dur-l 
ing the entire period in Avhich the survey

Mrs. Philip Van Every, 
Corresponding Secretary 
This fall weather just perks us all up — 
'e begin thinking of football games, holi- 
ay festivities and all the grand things that 
ike place during the next two seasons. But, 
I know a large group of "us girls" are 
tappier over our drug clubs meeting again 
Bian anything else. We had such fun at 
lur convention here in Charlotte last May — 
Let so many grand people, and it just gave 
Ls such ambition to be a very lively club 

Charlotte is a grand place to shop, and 
,ve would love for some of you girls shop- 
ping here to join us the second Tuesday 
bach month — tell us what your clubs are 
doing and enjoy our meetings with us. 
You'd love it ! !

tember when we met together for our first 
meeting at Thacker's, not only would you

Mrs. T. N. Edwards, our president, pre- 
sided beautifully— started off our new year 
with a bang by having us vote on matters 
that might cause misunderstandings later. 
Mrs. John K. Civil, our state president, was 
also a very stimulating influence; and we 
had a regular open-forum for ideas, plans, 
and laws. 

Seated next to me was Mrs. T. C. Year- 
W00( j — our treasurer and secretary. You re- 
member the swell job she did as head of the 
prize committee at the convention. She's 
a very capable woman and has so much 
enthusiasm and spirit for the whole organi- 

I peeped around Mrs. Edwards' shoulder 
and there sat Mrs. D. L. Wheeler looking 
quite stunning in black. She's our vice- 
president and will make a perfect one. 

Also with us was our state secretary- 
treasurer, Mrs. H. L. Bizzell, so if you will 
visit us, you'll see quite a few prominent 

And, I do want you to have the pleasure 
of watching our president preside. Mrs. 
Edwards is very individual and it's quite re- 

Now, I must tell you of our committees, 
for they play a very important part in our 
activities : 

Mrs. Louis M. Holmes is chairman of our 
hostess committee. She was the lovely bru- 
nette who welcomed you so graciously at 
the convention. 

If I mention the convention too much 
(please forgive) you see 'twas my first and 
I still can't get over it. 

Then Mrs. James Boyce Hunter is chair- 
man of the visiting committees. You all 
know her. She was our president last year, 
the real brains behind the women's part in 
the convention and worked on every detail 
of it with an untiring zeal and unceasing 
strength and interest. 

Mrs. T>. L. Wheeler is chairman of the 
hospitality and program committees, and by 
the way, I was quite interested to hear she 
has the splendid idea of suggesting we keep 
a year book. Wouldn't that be great! Let's 
vote on it, girls! 

Mrs. J. W. (Oh! Johnny!) Bennick is 
chairman of the ways and means committee. 
She's the one who cooked up the "veddy" 
smart idea of us having a bridge tourna- 
ment and attending it ourselves to make 
money for our clubs. Clever these Chinese — 
also these druggists and traveling men's 

We'll let you know next month what we 
decide about our year book. 
Enjoy visiting with you. 
Come to see us. 

An Unpardonable Error 
We regret exceedingly that we made an 
embarrassing and unpardonable omission 
in the October issue on page 156 in the 
article entitled, "Entertainment Features." 
We failed to state that the delightful 
garden party and tea given at the Char- 
lotte Country Club on the third day of the 
convention was tendered by Biltmore 
Dairies. This was one of the most beauti- 
ful and elaborate affairs given in honor 
of the ladies. Full credit was accorded to 
Biltmore Dairies for the courtesy in the 
May or Program Number of the Journal, 
and we regret exceedingly that we did not 
mention them as the hosts in the synopsis 
of entertainment events in the Proceedings. 
We are exceedingly sorry and extend our 
sincere apologies to Biltmore Dairies. — A. N.

A Yardstick Free 

How did your business answer the helm 
in 1939? Were you quite happy with the 
results? Have you any way of determining 
how your business compares with others as 
to merchandise costs, gross margin, ex- 
penses for salaries, rent, advertising, de- 
livery, heat, light, insurance, and other mis- 
cellaneous expenses? It is difficult to go 
about correcting conditions that contribute 
to low profits or lack of profits without a 
guide of some kind. The answers to these 
questions and many more are contained in 
the latest Lilly Digest. It represents 1939 
drug-store operations broken down in many 
interesting ways. It's a yardstick which 
any retail druggist can use to measure his 
own performance in the drug business. The 
figures, facts, and findings were gained from 
the free Lilly Analysis Service which has 
been offered by Eli Lilly and Company for 
eight consecutive years. Nearly 4,000 drug 
stores provided the figures; 611 stores used 
the service in 1940, supplying 1939 figures. 
Three hundred and forty-five stores supplied 
figures on their prescription department, so 
that the latest digest for the second time 
contains much factual data on the opera- 
tions of the professional side of the drug 
business. From the Lilly Digest you can 
learn whether your prescription prices are 
above or below average. The typical price 
in 1939 was 91 cents. There are data on 
country stores and on city stores, on large 
volume and on small volume. Drug stores 
quite similar to your drug store have been 
studied from many different angles. Here 
you can see what other druggists have in- 
vested in prescription stock in proportion to 
prescription department volume. Here you 
will find material on buying in quantities 
versus buying for turnover and the true key 
to success in management — buying for re- 
turn on the dollar invested. 

You too can participate in this unique 
service offered by Eli Lilly and Company 
without cost, without obligation, and in 
strict confidence. First, however, prove the 
worth of the service to yourself by sending 
for a Lilly Digest. These attractively pre- 
pared reports should interest every drug- 

car i 

gist. They are highly constructive, and 
for the asking. Better drop a post 
asking for one today. When you have rea 
it mark your calendar as a reminder to mak' 
use of this free service as soon as youl 
inventory for 1940 is out of the way. I 
may mean hundreds of dollars in savings t. 
you. To many druggists, according to grate 
ful admission, it has meant thousands o: 
dollars in savings because the individua 
analysis has suggested ways and means oj| 
bettering the return on every dollar in 
vested in the drug store. Address Eli Lillj 
and Company, Box 618, Indianapolis, Ini

Warning— Fraudulent Parke-Davis & 
Company Checks 

In certain sections of the State of Michi- 
gan and also in the State of Indiana, a bad 
check artist has victimized a number of 
druggists with fraudulent Parke, Davis & 
Company checks. This particular party, 
using the name of W. F. Eobinson, also 
H. Bockman, talks about the products of 
Parke, Davis & Co., poses as a Parke, Davis 
salesman on a vacation, has printed check 
forms that bear a certain but faulty re- 
semblance to the genuine ones. In most 
cases he negotiates for the purchase of a 
camera or other merchandise running into 
a total of a few dollars and tenders a check 
for between $30 and $50 in payment. 

We urge you to communicate with the 
police the moment such an individual at- 
tempts his fraudulent operations in your

The Drive for Fair Trade 

In the next issue of the Journal, this 
action will carry a full report of the re- 
ults on "The Drive for Fair Trade," made 
uring the week of October 14-19 by the 
'air Trade Compliance Members of the 
I'air Trade Committee in respective coun- 
ies of the State. 

f The responses that have been received up 
a the time this is written have been grati- 
ying, indeed; but little time has lapsed 
Ind consequently only a small number of 
tie Compliance Members have furnished a 
sport on the work done by them. 

The purposes of this concerted drive were 
(1) to emphasize the benefits that have al- 
ready resulted from the Fair Trade Move- 
ment and to point out its greater possi- 
bilities when given the support it deserves; 
and (2) to obtain funds by way of con- 
tributions from the druggists of the State, 
sufficient to enable the Fair Trade Com- 
mittee to prosecute its work in the manner 
in which it should be done. 

Your County Legislative Chairman has 
been appointed the Fair Trade Compliance 
Member of the Fair Trade Committee of 
the N. C. P. A. for your county. We ask 
that you give him your full cooperation to 
the end that the Drive for Fair Trade in 
your county, at least, will be a 100% suc- 

Drug Stores Preparing and Selling 
Food to Get Health Rating 

According to a recent ruling of Dr. Carl 
V. Reynolds, state health officer, drug stores 
that prepare and sell sandwiches are classi- 
fied as restaurants and must be inspected 
and given health ratings as such. Dr. Rey- 
nold's statement follows: 

' ' Inasmuch as many drug stores now pre- 
pare and sell sandwiches and because these 
same establishments in some instances dc 
not regard themselves as restaurants ana 
have complained because they have been in 
spected and rated as such, an explanatior 
may help to clarify misunderstandings. 

"Without regard to the legal definition of 
what constitutes a restaurant, it is neces- 
sary to realize that although only a small 
amount of food is involved in many eases, 
sanitary food handling and health hazards 
cannot be associated with the amount of 
business involved. 

"Drug stores selling only a few sand- 
wiches, grocery stores selling only a few 
hot dogs, etc., must meet all requirements 
of a cafe as we generally understand them,

light as day; fans keep customers cool in 
summer and thermostatically controlled heat 
keeps them warm in winter. The 25-foot 
counter is finished on the inside with stain- 
less steel; the walls of the store are finished 
in a delicate green bordered in cream and

and he is looking good and fully recovered 
from his recent siege of illness." 

Hale's Pharmacy, Seaboard, recently 
moved into a new building. The store is 
located in the same building with the post 
office. Looks like Hale and Uncle Sam

Dean Rubber Manufacturing Co. Clears Federal Action 

Considerable publicity has been given through the drug press to an announcement] 
concerning the Dean Rubber Manufacturing Company of North Kansas City, Missouri 
in reference to a decree issued covering defective prophylactics. An erroneous impressio: 
prevails that the company has been prohibited from the sale and distribution of theili 

After checking carefully with all government agencies concerned, it has been founJ 
that the entire controvery centers around merchandise intended for export and does not ii: 
any way reflect on the company's domestic policy which conforms and is subject to thosJ 
regulations imposed by the government upon all manufacturers of rubber prophylacticsii 

In view of the fact that the action was a consent decree, there was no hearing, tria. 1 
evidence or testimony presented before the court. 

To substantiate these premises the following statement, taken in part from a com 
munication from the Pood and Drug Administration, September 13, 1940, and signed bj 
G. P. Larrick, acting commissioner, says in effect that the action does not in any waj 
prevent the Dean Eubber Manufacturing Company from continuing its normal course oi 

B. B. Burks of the Paramount Sales Company, Knoxville, Tennessee, distributors foi': 
the Dean Eubber Manufacturing Company in this section, says: "We regret that efforts 
to misrepresent the facts in the above controversy have caused some apprehension among 
our many friends in the drug trade. However, we have endeavored to keep faith with! 
our customers and feel that it will not be difficult for us to clarify our position and that 
of our manufacturer in this connection." 

In order to have the highest grade of merchandise for the entire Dean line and com-l 
ply with the requirements of the United States Food and Drug Administration, it is neces- < 
sary when testing to discard a considerable quantity of goods which have slight flaws. 
Naturally, as these rejects are often far superior to any goods manufactured in several' 
foreign countries, it has been the policy of Dean Eubber Manufacturing Company to' 
export this grade of merchandise. It has never been the intention of the Dean Company: 
that this merchandise intended for export be sold in this country. 

"The active members of our sales staff, including E. E. Burks and W. M. Breeding, Jr., 
who work the Carolinas, will continue to advocate a strict drug store policy which we. 
have followed for almost 20 years, and will work conscientiously to see that those lines j 
we distribute protect at all times the best interest of those retail druggists who have so 
loyally supported us for almost twenty years".

was conducted by the National Industrial 
Conference Board, the figures would have 
been substantially more in favor of Fair 
Trade legislation, and feels confident in 
making the statement that the cost of liv- 
ing, during the period under examination, 
was actually reduced in the total figures 
through the operation of Fair Trade legis- 
lation. Certainly, no part of the increase 
of the cost of living found by the research 
of the National Industrial Conference Board 
can be charged to Fair Trade. 

In a sense, Fair Trade has gone through 
its experimental stage and has justified it- 
self, not only to ourselves as retailers, but 
to the public as a whole. It offers much 
hope to the future independent in all lines 
of retailing. It has stopped the drain of 
business away from the legitimate inde- 
pendent merchant at no expense to the pub- 
lic. The tricksters under Fair Trade are 
now compelled to give full value to the 

public if they conform to the law, in each 
and every one of their transactions. Be- 
low-cost baiting on a few well-known items 
and then charging unreasonable profits on 
unknown and off -brand merchandise, along 
with other sharp practices are, under Fair 
Trade, rapidly finding their way into the 
limbo of forgotten things. 

In view of the hundreds of thousands of 
transactions conducted in the forty-four 
states now operating under Fair Trade legis- 
lation, we are gratified to report enforce- 
ment from a practical point of view to be 
satisfactory. We are constrained to believe 
that the overwhelming majority of the vio- 
lations of the law have been through igno- 
rance rather than wilful intent. 

In conclusion, your Committee confidently 
believes that Fair Trade legislation will con- 
tinue to make its contribution in the field 
of fair business practices to the manufac- 
turer, the wholesaler, the retailer and the 
consumer. Your Committee has but one 
fear and that is the fear of self-complacency

Support Our Advertisers 

Twelve times a year for twenty-one years the Journal has been published and mailed 
3 a large group of readers throughout North Carolina and adjoining states. When the 
Carolina Journal of Pharmacy was conceived years ago, the Association endorsed it 
without cost to the Association." This endorsement of "without cost to the Association" 
as been and will continue to be rigidly adhered to by the present Managing-Editor. 

Since this publication has no wealthy philanthropist lurking in the background, 
hrough financial necessity we must secure operating funds from the one source which is 
vailable — our advertisers. If you enjoy reading the Journal each month, why not write 
. letter or card to one or more of the Journal advertisers and tell them of your appre- 
iation; better still, send them an order which will express yourself in a material way. 
f you do this, it will greatly aid us to retain and increase future advertising in the 

Unless additional advertising is obtained it will be impossible to run 40 pages to the

as averaged 28 to 32 pages a month. Believing that a larger Journal with more 
epartments and photographs is desired by its present readers, an attempt will be made 
y the Managing-Editor to increase the advertising which, in turn, will enable us to add 
dditional reading pages. 

If you are interested in helping us in this program of publishing a bigger and better 
ournal, we will be glad to supply you with a list of the manufacturers who are on our

Western North Carolina Druggists 

Enthusiastic Over Asheville 

Merchandising Clinic 

Eighty-one drug store proprietors and 
clerks representing 21 North Carolina towns 
met at the George Vanderbilt Hotel, Ashe- 
ville, November 7, to pool ideas and examine 
suggestions for more effective merchandising 
methods. The "Clinic" was given over to 
more than a half dozen addresses, a round- 
table discussion and several moving pic- 
tures and dramatic skits dealing with vari- 
ous phases of the retail drug business. 

Roy Johnson, president of the Asheville 
Drug Club, welcomed the visitors, and Joe 
Hollingsworth, president of the State Asso- 
ciation, responded. Moss Salley, second 
vice-president of the State Association pre- 

"Action Scenes from a Drug Store" was 
presented by H. E. Phillips, secretary-treas- 
urer of the Asheville Drug Club, and mem- 
bers of the local drug organization during 
the morning session. Some do's and don'ts 
in selling were effectively presented during 
this skit. W. J. Smith, secretary-treasurer 
of the N. C. P. A., urged the druggists to 
lay more stress on personal service to cus- 
tomers, to adhere more closely to state phar- 
macy laws and to raise their business stand- 

Roy Phillips, advertising manager of The 
Asheville Citizen-Times, presented statistics 
gathered by his staff in a recent survey on 
why housewives trade at certain stores in 
preference to certain other stores and point- 
ed out that the study showed convenience 
and service were more potent factors in the 
choice than minor price variations. 

The remainder of the morning was given 
over to a short talk by A. D. Pollard, sales 
representative of the Whitman Candy Co., 
on improved techniques for displaying and 
selling candy and the showing of a moving 
picture, "How to Take an Order over the 
Telephone," through the courtesy of the 
Bell Telephone Co. 

Feature of the afternoon was a thirty- 
minute radio dramatization of a drug store 
scene, by members of the Asheville Drug 
Club, in which the practical problems in the 
retail promotion of vitamin products were 

portrayed. Particular attention was gi 
to ways of combating grocery store e< 
petition. John Goode played the part 
Proprietor Hardy in this program with 
support of Lacy Meredith as salesman 
Simpson, Edwin Nowell as customer Bro 
and Moss Salley as Doctor Arnold. F 
Bowman, attorney for the Association, 
plained pending legislation and pointed 
that prices of drug store merchandise 
North Carolina had dropped more thai 
per cent on an average since passage 
fair trade legislation. 

Coke Cecil, Joe Hollingsworth, P. 
Suttlemyre, John Goode, W. L. Moose 
C. Whitley, W. R. McDonald, H. C. Li 
Stacy Smith, Dean Tainter, George 
Matthews, and others took part in 
' ' Open Forum ' ' which followed the 
dress by F. O. Bowman. This part of 
program evoked so much interest that ti 
had to be called so the delegates could 
tend the banquet which had been arran 
for them. 

Coke Cecil, High Point druggist-magici 
appeared on the night program and cc 
pletely mystified his audience by pull 
eggs, coins, etc. from out of the thin 
"Oscar," Mr. Cecil's assistant, turned 
another brilliant performance. Langc 
Common, representing the Eastman Koc 
Company, showed some color pictures wh 
he had made and demonstrated how to m 
indoor pictures. 

"What Vitamins Do for Us," a thi 
minute movie covering the function 
sales possibilities of vitamins, was presen 
by Lacy Meredith of Asheville. Doug 
Graham of Atlanta, special representat 
of E. R. Squibb & Sons, urged the atte 
ing druggists to pay special attention 
their vitamin departments in order to est 
lish their stores as the logical outlet 
vitamin products. 

The Dr. T. C. Smith Wholesale Di 
House of Asheville registered and paid 
fees for fifteen retail drug clerks attend 
this Clinic. Following the meeting, 
secretary-treasurer of the State Associat 
received a large number of requests to 
peat a similar type of program in Ashev 
next year.

ruggist Considers the Family, ' ' which 
id, in part, ' ' Few people realize the im- 
irtant part played in community life by 
e druggists of Charlotte . . . that in order 

serve their trade adequately they must

Pharmacy Senate 

The University Pharmacy Senate, organ- 
oid last year for the purpose of allowing 

iividual pharmacy students to discuss 
ipics relating to pharmacy, has enjoyed 
i^eral interesting discussions this year, 
ilme of the topics that were discused were: 

•sition of the Pharmacist in Compulsory 

ilitary Service ; Opportunities of the Phar- 

macist in Governmental Service; Parlia- 
mentary Procedure, and others. 

The Senate has, at the present time, com- 
mittees working on the framing of a per- 
manent constitution, and adoption of a key 
for its members. 

For National Pharmacy Week, the Senate 
decorated two windows in Sutton 's Drug 
Store of Chapel Hill. Themes for the win- 
dows were : Your Pharmacist — by Training, 
a Scientist, and Your Pharmacist — by Pro- 
fession, a Scientist. In the window empha- 
sizing training were displayed chemical and 
pharmaceutical laboratory equipment with a 
background of many of the technical text- 
books used by the pharmacy student. In the 
window emphasizing professional skill were 
displayed several "right and wrong" pre- 
scriptions, with the typewritten prescription 
in front, and both a container holding the 
finished prescription as it would be filled by 
an unskilled person, and a container holding 
the finished prescription as it would be filled 
by a skilled pharmacist. Also displayed 
were a percolator, pill roller, tablet mold, 
pill tile, etc. Many compliments were re- 
ceived by the Senate for this display. 

Although several of last year 's Senate 
members were graduated, the Senate has 
filled its roll from the waiting list, and the 
members are looking forward to a full and 
interesting program of discussions for this

recent N. A. E. D. Convention held in New 
York and urged members of the local club 
to cooperate with the State Association in 
promoting pharmacy in North Carolina. 
Fair Trade, Sectional Meeting and Progres-

Action Scenes from a Drug Store 

(Arranged by H. E. Phillips, Secretary- 
Treasurer of the Asheville Drug Club, and 
presented by members of that organization 
during the "Merchandising Clinic" held in 
Asheville, Nov. 7). 

Master of Ceremonies: H. E. Phillips of 

T. C. Smith Company. 
Clerk 1 (Non-Progressive) : W. L. Buh- 
mann of Grove Park Pharmacy. 
- Clerk 2 (Progressive) : C. E. Ingle of Bil- 
bro 's Drug Store. 
Customer 1 : J. S. LeGette of Liggett 's 

Drug Store. 
Customer 2: E,. Gerald Bryan of Goode 's 

Drug Store. 
Master of Ceremonies: I would like to 
make a few remarks about one word that 
deeply concerns all of us if we are to be 
successful in the drug business. That word 
is merchandising. Only in recent years has 
the word merchandising become the most 
important word in the retail drug business. 
The day has long passed when a business 
will run itself. The day has long passed 
when a retail business will run without 

I might ask what we do mean by mer- 
chandising. I think you'll agree that if I 
asked twenty-five people in this room that 
same question I would get twenty-five differ- 
ent answers. So if my answer doesn 't agree 
with yours to the " T ", I believe it will be 
in the neighborhood of your thinking. Let 
us break merchandising down into different 
kinds of action: (1) Salesmanship; (2) 
Display; (3) A knowledge of your custo- 
mers' wants and when they want it and (4) 
Advertising. By advertising I don't mere- 
ly mean the price you have on Ipana today 
but that extra quality and service that will 
be found in your prescription department or 
that quality merchandise you see in the rest 
of the store or the extra something you have 
that your competitors do not. This all 
might be summed up to mean simply this: 
Saying the right thing, at the right time, 
in the right way, with the right merchan- 

Like everything else there is good mer- 
chandising and bad merchandising. A dis- 

play featuring vitamin products in Jul 
a store not featuring vitamin products 
September, or a store that is not clean 
attractively arranged is a poorly mercha 
dised store. A store well merchandisi 
must go through a constant change of di 
play and arrangement day after day. 
store that never changes in appearance hi 
no appeal to the customer and no o: 
notices the displays and signs. 

People like change, they like variety. Tl 
is one lesson the groceryman has learne 
Not many years ago the groceryman w 
not a merchandiser. Displays, price tickel 
salesmanship, store arrangement, cleanlines 
and the other things that make up goi 
merchandising were not in his vocabulai 
But today you walk into that neighborhoi 
grocery store and see practically everythii 
that is included in good merchandising. Yi 
don't see the same displays week after wee 
I ask why this change? Because the gi 
ceryman realizes good merchandising is mc 
profitable and that this is his best weap: 
in fighting competition. 

Merchandising is like mercury in that 
is cumulative. A drive on a certain ita 
may not produce the results you feel 
should but in most instances you haj 
posted judgment too quickly. The resuj 
of any drive cannot be realized in a fj 
days; frequently weeks pass before yoj 
customer returns to make the purchase, 
mistake we are apt to make in the ve 
beginning of our merchandising is expecti 
too much direct results. We must establi 
a reputation over a period of time bef( 
we can realize our reward. 

Spasmodic attempts at merchandising 
worthless. We have to merchandise 
days in the year in order to realize the rj 
value of a well planned selling program 

Bealizing that salesmanship is the mj 
important part of merchandising we hi 
arranged a few simple examples of gc 
and bad salesmanship which we will try 
demonstrate for the sales people.

l /2d a piece, 100 for 59c. 

Customer 2: Don't you have 10c Aspirin? 

Cleric 2: Yes, but it costs you almost 

uble to buy in such small quantities.

Greet your customers as you would like 

be treated yourself, and you will find 
ur list of customers growing larger and 
lger as well as buying more and more 
rchandise from you. 

Talk to your customers and explain to 
in about the product you are showing, 
is is Salesmanship of the constructive 
ae. It 's not ' ' high pressure ' ' to elabor- 
S on the advantages of a product or to 
ggest companion items that are logical 
Irchases. Tactful suggestions are wel- 
bied by customers. 

Remember to hand your customer the item 
enever possible. Have them feel it, smell 
or try it whenever that is advantageous, 

order to make them sell themselves. 
Once a customer is inside the store it 
pts little more to make two sales instead 
I one. It is not what they come in for, 
It what they go out with that makes the 
pra profit. 

Five cents worth of additional merchan- 
ie sold to each and every customer almost 

tables your net profits. This is because it 
is you as much to sell a penny's worth 
goods as it does a dollar's worth. 
Certainly you want this extra profit. How 
t can you get it? 

Make it a rule never to let a customer get 
t without suggesting something addition- 
regardless of the amount of the sale, 
ery extra penny adds profit like magic. 


A Craekerjack Salesman." Can it be 

d of you? You couldn't win a better 

compliment, for selling is the big job now- 
adays. All great retailers admit it is more 
important to know how to sell goods than; 
how to make them or buy them. 

Selling isn't mere separating people from 
their money. It is studying merchandising 
and studying people, and helping people ap- 
preciate the merits of the merchandise. 

Selling is a fine art if you make the most 
of it. It sharpens the wits. . . . Makes 
bigger men and women. 

Out of every ten people trying to sell 
goods, one is a real salesman. The others 
are just order-takers. 

The opportunities for the real Salesman 
are practically unlimited. He need never 
want. The latch-string hangs out every- 
where for him ; and ' ' him ' ' means ' ' her ' ' 
as well.

When a visitor comes in,

Don't just stand around and chin, 

Show the goods. 
There 's no first class reason why 
You can't sell if you will try

Show the goods. 

When you're asked, "Do you keep this?" 

Show the goods. 
Never say What price Miss 1 ? 

Show the goods. 
You won 't, if you 're really wise 
Begin by asking color or size, 
You '11 get the goods before their eyes — 

Show the goods. 

Interest in the person first, 

Show the goods. 
Question methods are the worst, 

Show the goods. 
It's a sad mistake to say, 
How much do you want to pay? 
Don't go at the folk that way — 

Show the goods. 

Millions of dollars are spent every yea 
for national advertising of drug store me: 
chandise, yet very little time or effort 
spent on the spot that is most important- 
that last 30 seconds across the drug stoi 
counter to the customer. 

Salesmanship is essential in building u 
a successful sales volume. Good windo 
displays will bring customers in your stor 
good interior displays will make them loo 
around and even ask for this or that articl 
But salesmanship is required to close tl 
largest number of sales. Bigger volume 
sure to come your way if you support goo

selling punch that will weaken sales resis 

Remember you are the most importai

Encouraging Self-Medication 

Doctors insist on a tight monopoly in the 
healing art. They complain bitterly — and 
properly — when some misguided] druggist 
3ngages in counter-prescribing, and they de- 
plore self-medication. We believe they are 
right in both cases. Pharmacists should 
confine their practice to their own profes- 
sion, and laymen should entrust the diag- 
nosis and treatment of their ailments to the 
physician. He who tries to cure himself, has 
a fool for a doctor. 

But we believe that the medical shoe- 
maker also should stick to his own last. It 
is just as improper and unethical for him 
to dispense medicines as for the pharmacist 
to prescribe them. We also believe that 
physicians are unwittingly responsible for 
much of the self-medication that is being 
practiced today. 

A doctor who gives a patient with certain 
Symptoms a plainly labeled manufacturer 's 
sample, must expect that patient, if he gets 
relief, to recommend that medicine to a 
neighbor exhibiting the same symptoms. 
That neighbor, being frugal and wishing 
to avoid the payment of a physician 's fee, 
will likely short-circuit the doctor's office 
and go directly to a drug store to purchase 
medicine bearing the same label and made 
by the same manufacturer. 

Too, when that medicine has become well 
enough known to the general public to com- 
mand a large sale, the manufacturer may be 
expected to commercialize it as a patent 
medicine. If he doesn't, some enterprising 
patent medicine man probably will popu- 
larize a similar product. 

It should concern the doctor that laymen 
who buy the medicine may have made a 
wrong self-diagnosis or that they may so 
extend the treatment or increase the dose 
as to do themselves a great injury. 

To the doctor who is so indifferent to the 
welfare of his patient as not to worry about 
their welfare (and conceivably there may 
be such) the possibility that he is hurting 
his profession and undermining his own 
business should be a deterrent consideration. 

There is much to be said in favor of the 

old prescription, Avritten in Latin and call- 
ing for ethical preparations. — N. A. E. B. 

Durham Druggists Celebrate 

Sixty pharmacists from Durham and 
near-by towns met at Josh Turnage 's cabin 
located on the outskirts of that city on the 
night of October 23 to celebrate National 
Pharmacy Week and to partake of Southern 
barbecue with all the trimmings. Installa- 
tion of the newly elected officers of the 
Durham Drug Club and addresses by Joseph 
Hollingsworth, Doctor T. T. Jones and W. 
J. Smith were features of the gathering. 

After a series of songs I. T. Reamer, 
president of the local club, introduced 
Joseph Hollingsworth of Mount Airy who 
spoke on ' ' Pharmacy in North Carolina. ' ' 
Following this address, W. J. Smith spoke 
to the gathering on "Pharmaceutical Ob- 
jectives. ' ' Dr. T. T. Jones, prominent Dur- 
ham physician, stated, while addressing the 
group on "Physician and Pharmacist's Co- 
operation, ' ' that ' ' Physicians should not 
give oral prescriptions and that standard 
packages should be prescribed whenever pos- 
sible. ' ' 

Two quizzes, a slogan and a vitamin-en- 
docrine quiz, were conducted by President 
I. T. Reamer during the evening. Harry 
W. Walker of Norlina won first prize by 
correctly answering 23 of the 25 slogans. 
Ned McKay of Durham was runner-up. J. 
F. Lyon of Watts Hospital, Durham, placed 
first in the vitamin-endocrine quiz with C. 
L. Clodfelter of Whelan 's Drug Co., Dur- 
ham, placing a close second. 

D. L. Boone, Jr., Chairman of the Phar- 
macy Week Window Contest, announced that 
the displays installed by Boone Drug Com- 
pany and Brewer's Drug Store had been 
adjudged the best. Members of these two 
drug firms were presented with valuable 
prizes donated by the B. C. Remedy Com- 
pany and Peabody Drug Company. 

New officers installed at the meeting 
were: S. O. Brewer, president; J. F. Lyon, 
secretary ; I. T. Reamer, treasurer, and Ger- 
trude Garrard, assistant treasurer.

Boatright Advances for Lilly 
Bassett and Farrior Move 

Continued expansion of the Lilly field 
organization necessitates several changes in 
district headquarters, effective January 1. 
K. T. Boatright, Lilly representative in the 
Bristol territory, will move to Richmond, 
Virginia, where he will have charge of the 
new Richmond District. A. T. Bassett, who

past ten years, will establish a district head- 
quarters at Jacksonville, Florida. E. W. 
Farrior will move his office from Charlotte, 
North Carolina, to Atlanta, Georgia, suc- 
ceeding Mr. Bassett as manager of the At- 
lanta District. Our congratulations, gentle- 
men, and best wishes for success in your 
new fields of endeavor. 

Report of Women's Auxiliary — 
Charlotte Pharmaceutical Association 

Mrs. Philip Van Every, 

Corresponding Secretary 

Our October meeting was such a huge 

success, 'til we needs must believe 'twas 

our president's red hat. Certainly it did 

lend a note of excitement and informality. 

We voted for that year book. When our 
president, Mrs. T. N. Edwards, said, "All 

in favor raise your little hands," every 
little hand shot up. She addresses us all as 
"Sister," and we really feel like one great 
big happy family. 

We are thrilled over our new members, but 
disapointed that we had no visitors. Our 
invitation to you was sincere. 

Honestly, our Secretary-Treasurer, Mrs. 
T. C. Yearwood, is the "workingest" wo- 
man I've ever seen. She managed to get 
each of us a typewritten copy of our list of 
members. Besides being very attractive, she 
is efficient and I do mean efficient. 

Our state president, Mrs. John K. Civil, 
honored us with an explanation and paper 
on the scholarship fund of the association. 
Just before reading her paper, she said, 
"As Uncle Remus says, I'll give it to you 
just as it was guv to me." Mrs. Civil cer- 
tainly is a gracious and inspiring leader 
for us. 

(With Apologies to Walter Winehell) 

Charlorchids to Mrs. W. A. Dunkley for 
offering her services as a palmist at our 
party to make money for the scholarship 
fund. She designs hats too and they're 
lovely. Also to Mrs. W. L. Wheeler who 
is busy at work on our year book. 

Welcome back to pretty little red-headed 
Kate Bennick (Mrs. J. W.) and off-ly boo- 
ful Mrs. J. Boyce Hunter. We missed you 
both last meeting. Bouquets to Mrs. E. F. 
Rimmer for her achievements in the Phar- 
maceutical field. (Don't Ave have a swell 
association ! ) 


Mrs. C. H. Smith looking very lovely 
and glamorous in black. Her husband, as 
you know, is president of the Traveling 
Men 's Association. 

Mrs. P. W. Delaney, daughter of Mrs. 
Edwards, concentrating on her mother. 


We didn't see Mrs. D. C. Lisk and missed 
her so much. She's a swell member, and I 
believe this is the first meeting she's been 
unable to attend. All you girls try to be 
with us next meeting. Let 's have a hun- 
dred per cent attendance. 

In the meantime, Mrs. Lee Bailey is work- 
ing on our party to make money for our 
scholarship fund, and we're looking for you.

Drug Labeling 

(During recent months this office has re- 
ceived a large number of requests for in- 
formation pertaining to provisions under the 
recently enacted Food, Drug and Cosmetic 
Legislation. Since so many of the letters 
relate to label requirements under the Act, 
we are publishing the following letter sent 
out by W. G. Campbell, Chief of the Food 
and Drug Administration, Washington, to- 
gether with a Memorandum On Warning 
Statements Under Section 502(f)(2) of the 
Act — Ed.) 

"As you know, section 502(f) of the new 
Act, with certain exceptions, became effec- 
tive on January 1. The responsibility for 
the labeling of drugs in compliance with 
the requirements is placed by the law upon 
the manufacturer or distributor. The Food 
and Drug Administration cannot relieve him 
of this responsibility nor share in it. Never- 
theless, numerous requests for comments on 
proposed warning statements for certain 
drugs have been received by the administra- 
tive officers in Washington, as well as by 
our representatives in the field. In the past 
it has been the general practice for the field 
stations to forward such requests to Wash- 
ington for reply. This has imposed a burden 
on the headquarters force which has ma- 
terially delayed our answers." 

"We are appending hereto a memorandum 
listing a number of drug preparations with 
indications concerning the nature of warn- 
ing statements which are not being subjected 
to adverse criticism for the present. This 
list is by no means complete, nor does it in 
any way mitigate the responsibility of man- 
ufacturers and distributors to comply with 
the requirements of section 502(f)(2) with 
respect to other preparations not included. 
Neither does the presence of proper warn- 
ing statements relieve a preparation from 
compliance with section 502(f)(1), 502 (j) 
and other sections of the Act. These com- 
ments may be modified or altered at any 
time as the fact may warrant." 

UNDER SECTION 502(f)(2)

and phenolphthalein ) -which act as irritants

Results of the Fair Trade Drive 

We take pleasure in furnishing below a 
report of the results from "The Drive for 
Pair Trade" made during the week of 
October 14th-19th by the Fair Trade Com- 
pliance Members of the Fair Trade Com- 
mittee in the respective counties of the 
State. It will be seen that 30 of the 100 
County Fair Trade Compliance Members 
have reported, of which 5 are 100%. Fur- 
thermore, it will be seen that 134 of the 
800 or more of the total number of drug 
stores in the State have made donations thus 
far to the Committee. Other county chair- 
men have completed their drive but have 
not reported and still others have not 
finished their canvass. These, of course, 
will report later and the results will be 
carried in the next issue of the Journal. 
It is the hope of the Committee that the 
remaining counties will produce as satis- 
factory returns as the ones listed herein 
below ; for in this event your Fair Trade 
Committee will be in position to carry the 
movement forward in a manner that will be 
productive of greater benefits than ever

American Druggists, October, 1940. 

1 The law places the responsibility upon the 
manufacturer or distributor to determine, in any 
particular instance, whether or not a drug may 
be dangerous to health. The circumstances, sur- 
rounding the sale of the drug, must be taken into 
consideration in determining whether or not it is 
dangerous. The pharmacist is in a position to 
know what drugs are likely to prove harmful, he 
should guide himself accordingly. 

Opinions or rulings of the FDA are subject, 
in the final analysis, to court interpretation. An 
adverse court decision will, of course, make this 
administrative agency change its views.

made of plastic; easy to wash and IOO9 

Customer 2: I believe I will take that. 

Cleric 2: What kind of hair tonic or shan

a package of 12 for 25c, which represent 
a saving of 20%.

Customer 2: No, I'm well stocked in those 
items, but my tooth brush is about shot. 

Cleric 2: Yes Sir, here's a brush with the 
exton bristles that will last you a long 

Customer 2: It'll be all right. 


That question has cost druggists thou- 
sands and thousands of dollars, yet so few 
realize it. A substitution of this expres- 
sion, with a definite sales suggestion on a 
kindred item to that which the customer 
has just asked for, or an item that is being 
sold Special at the time, will many times 
ring those dollar keys on that Cash Eegister. 
It is not claimed that this method will sell 
every customer more merchandise, but re- 
member one thing: the more No's you get, 
the closer you are to a Yes. Customers like 
to be sold. Everybody has admiration for 
a person that tries, so if first you don't suc- 
ceed, try, try again. 

Most every customer that enters your 
store offers you every opportunity to demon- 
strate your sales ability ; every customer is 
open to suggestion, and ready to buy addi- 
tional articles if you will sell them. "What 
you fail to sell them, your competitor will 

One of the most vexing problems you 
have to face lies in the large number of 
sales so small that the profit from them does 
not offset the actual cost of transaction. 
I have just made the statement that a 5c 
increase on each sale would almost double 
your net profit. Now, I'm going to prove 
it. We will take the experience of a typi- 
cal city neighborhood drug store. The sales 
in this store were $50,000 to a traffic of 
125,000 customer transactions, make the av- 
erage sale 40c; mechandise cost 66%; oper- 
ating expense 28%, and a net profit of 
6%. After increasing the average sale to 
45c instead of 40c, gives us a sales volume 
of $56,250. The merchandise cost, from a 
percent standpoint, remains the same, but 
operating cost and net profit are changed 

Here are the results: 

1. Increased net profit from $3,000 to 
$5,125. A net gain of $2,125. 

2. Increased net profit percent — 6% to 

3. Eeduced operating expense from 28% 
to 24.7%. 

4. Actually increased rate of net profit by 
more than 50%. 

5. Actually reduced rate of operating ex- 
pense by nearly 12%.

Customer 1 : Oh, Doctor, I just lost my 
lipstick. Have you got my shade? 

Clerk 1 : Well Miss, I don 't know, I have 
about every shade and color in the rainbow. 
Here, how's this one? 

Customer 1 : Oh, that 's too dark for me. 

Clerh 1 : No, that 's darker than the other 
one. How do you like this one? 

Customer 1 * That's too light. What 
shade should I use? 

Clerk 1 : Now let me see. I think this is 
the shade for you. 

Customer 1 : No, that 's for a blonde, 
can't you see I'm a brunette? Don't you 
have some more shades? 

Clerk 1 : Yes, I have some over here for 
10c. How do you like this one? 

Customer 1 : That 's not my shade, but 
it '11 have to do, since its only a dime. 

In Progressive Store 

Customer 2: Oh, Doctor, I just lost my 
lipstick. Do you have my shade? 

Clerk 2: Yes Mam. According to Coty's 
Beauty Chart a brunette should use either 
Dahlia or Med. It is just a question whether 
you like a light or dark lipstick. 

Customer 2: I think Dahlia is O. K. 

Clerk 2: Coty also makes a Dahlia rouge 
to harmonize with that lipstick, thereby giv- 
ing you complete match make-up. 

Customer 2: Well, it is better to use the 
same kind. I think I'll take that too. 

Clerk 2: By the way, have you seen the 
new Airspun Po. Vanity that 's been so 
highly advertised recently in the fashionable 
women's magazines? This new Airspun 
powder is not to be confused with the ordi- 
nary cake powder. Just a gentle touch with 
the puff and you have enough powder for 
one time use. Almost as easy as if it were 
loose powder. But not nearly so messy. 

Customer 2: Do you have my shade? 

Clerk 2: Yes, your right shade is Ra- 
chelle No. 2. What color case do you pre- 

Customer 2:1 think I like the red one.

A tough nut to crack. How many drug- 
gists have you heard say, "It's no use. 
The Cosmetic business has gone to the De- 
partment Store ' ' ? Still there are many 
druggists who have applied themselves by 
using the make-up beauty charts prepared 
by experts. Seventy five percent of the 
sales in the Cosmetic Department are made 
without much effort. But 25% of the sales 
require a knowledge of shades, types, etc. 
Do you know what shade of powder in this 
line or that line is more suitable for 
blondes — what shade of lipstick or rouge? 
When we have acquainted ourselves with 
these simple facts, selling Cosmetics will 
be a pleasure, and that 25% of the cosmetic 
sales that we are inviting competition on, 
will be ours. 

There may have been a day when any 
shade of powder, lipstick, rouge or kind of 
cream would have been suitable for the 
Miss or Mrs., but that day has gone for- 
ever. Your knowledge of Cosmetics must 
be sufficient to meet the daily changing 
trend of a customer that is a 1941 model, 
who, without asking you, has an entirely 
new set of buying habits, and from all in- 
dications she intends to buy by them. This 
trend in no way decreases demand, but on 
the contrary has greatly increased the de- 
mand for Cosmetics. 

Can the loss of Cosmetic business in the 
drug stores be traced to cut-price compe- 
tition? No. Because, all the leading manu- 
facturers have maintained full retail prices 
long before Fair Trade. The loss of this 
business can be attributed to our failure 
to acquaint ourselves with the few funda- 
mentals required to sell Cosmetics. This in- 
efficiency is driving dollars out of our stores

Customer 1 : Do you have a bottle of 
that 9c rubbing alcohol that I see adver- 
tised by some of the drug stores? 

Cleric 1 : No ! But I have a bottle at 23c. 
I just can't sell it that cheap and make 
any money. I can 't stay in business selling 
at that margin of profit. If they want to 
sell it at that price, it 's O. K. with me. 
But I'm not. 

Customer 1 : I 'm sorry but I have to buy 
it where I can get it the cheapest. 

In Progressive Store 

Customer 2: Do you have a bottle of that 
9c rubbing alcohol that I see advertised by 
some of the drug stores? 

Clerk 2: Yes Sir, we did carry that 
cheaper rubbing alcohol until so many of 
our better customers complained about it, 
so we just discontinued it. But here is one 
you pay a few cents more for, but it's the 
same high quality used in hospitals and by 
doctors. It does not irritate the skin or 
leave any alcoholic odor like the cheaper 

Customer 2: I thought rubbing alcohol 
was rubbing alcohol. 

Clerk 2: No. There's much difference in 
rubbing alcohol. None of the cheaper grades 
are made from pure grain alcohol. 

Customer 2: I'm glad to know that. How 
much is that one? 

Clerk 2: A full pint for 39c. 

Customer 2: I'll take that one. 

Clerk 2: You probably need some ab- 
sorbent cotton and gauze? We have a full 
V 2 lb. J. & J. Cotton for only 37c and 5 yds. 
gauze for only 49c. 

Customer 2: Yes I will need some cotton, 
and that will be all, thank you.

burned seriously and the Rosemary Drug 
Company almost destroyed on the after- 
noon of November 20 as the result of an 
explosion of a can of alcohol which Mr. 
Martin had in his hand. 

Mr. Martin suffered painful burns about 
his face and one hand and arm. He was 
rushed to a local hospital where he is 
reported as "resting fairly comfortably." 
The interior of the store together with the 
stock of goods was ruined before the fire 
could be brought under control. 

It's Getting to Be a Habit 

On the night of November 22 the Taylor 
Drug Company, Durham, was entered for 
the third time this year and a quantity of 
cigarettes and about $2.25 stolen. This 
time, officers said, entry was gained by some- 
one breaking the front door glass of the 
store. On both of the previous break-ins the 
method of entry was through the roof.

N. A. B. P. Census of Pharmacy 

H. C. Christensen, Secretary 

In sixty-eight colleges of pharmacy dur- 
ing the school year 1939-1940, there were 
enrolled 8,762 students, as compared with 
a total of 8,569 for the year previous, ac- 
cording to the annual student census just 
completed by the National Association of 
Boards of Pharmacy. Questionnaires were 
mailed in June but the final results have 
just been tabulated. 

This is the second consecutive year that 
there has been an increase in the total en- 
rollment. The 1938 figure was 8,190 stu- 
dents, showing a gain of almost 600 in two 
years. The steady increase in college enroll- 
ment year by year, although small, is en- 
couraging to those who have worried about 
the possibility of a shortage of pharmacists 
in the future. It shows that the four-year 
course of pharmacy is gaining recognition 
from prospective students. 

The number of seniors graduating, how- 
ever, was only 1,533 as compared with 1,842 
the previous year. Most of this year's 
graduating class matriculated in 1936, and 
as the freshman enrollment for that year 
was less than that of 1935, a decrease in 
the number graduating was expected. By 
the same token, we may expect a larger 
class to graduate next year, as the 1937 
freshman class showed about a hundred 
more students than the 1936 class. 

The new students matriculating in 1940 
totaled 3,227 but as 128 of these were 
transfers from other pharmacy colleges, the 
net gain was 3,099. The 1939 new student 
count was 2,920. 

On the basis of a freshman count (for 
64 colleges) of 2,363 in 1936 and a gradu- 
ation class of 1,533 this year (from 68 
colleges) we find that the drop-out percent- 
age was approximately 46%. 


The registration statistics collected from 
the boards are equally as interesting. Re- 
turns from 45 states show that 2,271 phar- 
macists were registered by examination 
during 1939. (In a few instances, the 
period covered is the fiscal year of the 

board instead of the calendar year.) On 
this basis, the total registrations for the 
United States should be approximately 
2,500 and this means that the estimated 
2 1 /2% replacement figure has been met. 

The total number taking the R.Ph. ex- 
amination in these 45 states was 3,648 — 
so the passing percentage on board exami- 
nations for the country as a whole was about 
62%, which is low. However, it should be 
remembered that the period covered was 
one during which some five or six states 
were still examining large classes of non- 
graduates, and the passing percentage in 
these states of from 20% to 40% coupled 
with the fact that the numbers of candi- 
dates were large, has done considerable to 
drag down the average for the country as a 
whole. In the majority of the states on a 
college basis, the passing percentage ran 
from 70% to 100%. That the number of 
non-graduates still sitting in examination 
was considerable is evidenced also by the 
fact that the total number taking exami- 
nation was 3,648, whereas the graduating 
class of the period (1939) was 1842. 
Naturally some allowance must also be made 
for graduates who failed in previous years 
and were retaking the board examination. 

The examination statistics also show that 
355 new names were added to the roster of 
assistant pharmacists in eleven states. A 
count of the total number of assistant 
licenses still outstanding shows this number 
to be 4,512 in 29 states. These licenses are 
still being renewed, in some instances, al- 
though the state no longer offers the assist- 
ant examination. The following states show 
an appreciable number of assistant certifi- 
cates : Illinois 981 ; Colorado 497 ; Pennsyl- 
vania 476; Connecticut 426; Massachusetts 
414; and Wisconsin 353. 

The total number of registered pharma- 
cists on the active roster in 45 states and 
Alaska is 112,055. This figure includes 
duplications, however, as some pharmacists 
pay renewal fees in two or more states. 
For example, the reciprocal registrant usu- 
ally keeps his original examination license 
in good standing so as to be able to use it 
in the future for further reciprocity. 


Creomulsion Blotter 

In line with the established policy of publishing unsolicited letters, articles 
and reports of general interest to its readers, the Journal is glad to print 
below a letter recently received from D. R. Davis of Williamston. Note: 
Blotter together with signed letter are on file in this office. — Ed. 

November 22, 1940. 
The Creomulsion Company, 
Atlanta, Georgia. 

Gentlemen : 

There has just come to our attention a blotter mailed to physicians by your company 
on which the price of Creomulsion in gallons is quoted. We are confident that more 
than one drug store in the United States will be disappointed in your efforts to encourage 
dispensing on the part of physicians in towns where there are drug stores giving you 
means of distribution. I know that one drug store will in the future sell Creomulsion on 
call only, as long as this policy of the Creomulsion persists. 

Respectfully yours, 

D. R. Davis 
Davis Pharmacy, 
Williamston, N. C.
