The Indianapolis College of Pharmacy has
been in existence since 1904. Since its organ-
ization, 1150 students have been graduated.
It is a member of the American Association of
Colleges of Pharmacy, an organization which
establishes the high standards maintained by
its members. The curriculum of I. C. P. is one
of high scientific standards and practical value.
The degree. Bachelor of Science, is conferred
upon each student upon completion of the four
year course. The many advantages offered tc
a student of I. C. P. have established our Alma
Mater as one of the leading Colleges of Phar-
macy in the United States. As an institution
of professional learning, I. C. P. has gone far
in the advancement of the pharmaceutical arts

TO THE READER
As editor of the 1940 Mistura, I wish to take
this means of expressing my appreciation to faculty
and students for the fine cooperation which has met
the efforts of the staff in compiling this record.
To the Mistura staff and those who helped so
efficiently, especially do I wish to express my grati-
tude. They have taken my hurried, jumbled direc-
tions and my vague explanations of the work they
were to do, and they have done much better than
I had hoped. This year book is the creation of the
whole group, each doing his appointed task. The
aid of student members in producing this annual
The 1940 Mistura is yours. I hope you will see
in it an accurate picturization of the persons and
events which made the past college year one of the
most successful in the history of I. C. P.
HE M I S T U
Well we've made it now, We're almost through
We've finished the job, That's so hard to do.
For four long years we've sweat and toiled.
We've burned the candles and the midnight oil.
But now it's finished. Now we can say too
We're done, We've made it. We're almost through,
To you. Freshman, grim and shy
The road is long, the peak is high.
There's many an exam you've yet to pass;
Keep up your head with the rest of your class.
Then one of these days you can say too.
We're done. We've made it. We're almost through
Then to the sophomores, sad and worn,
We know it's tough, the load you've borne.
You're on the hump, now start back down
You'll make it now — Wipe off that frown.
Then one of these days you can say too
We're done. We've made it. We're almost through,
To the Juniors comes the best of all
The senior class, it's yours, we leave these halls.
Take up the standard, hold it high
For on your shoulders the burden lies.
Then in a short while you can say too
We're done. We've made it. We're almost through
Now comes the time we bid adieu
We've finished the job — Now we're through.
It grieves us deeply to say we're done
But just the same, we've had some fun.
And now we can say as they said too
We're done. We've made it. We're almost through

HAPPY DAYS AT I. C. P.
(Tune, Original Air) .
In the heart of Indiana,
In a city large and fair,
Proudly stands'our Alma Mater,
Happy days are those spent there.
But days like these must pass away,
Though ne'er forgot will they be;
So we'll sing, dear Alma Mater,
All hail to the I.C.P.
Everyone familiar with the activities of I.C.P. is ac-
quainted with EDWARD H. NILES, Dean of our College. Dur-
ing the past many years his influence and instruction have
been the "guiding light" to hundreds of I.C.P. students. Dean
Niles is a fitting example for young men and women, and a
teacher of rare ability.
He is well informed in the fields of Pharmacy, Medicine
and Literature. Dean Niles has always held an individual
friendship with each member of the student body and these
years of study and preparation under his guidance will always
The Indianapolis College of Pharmacy, with
a faculty of fourteen, now has the largest
teaching staff in the history of the school. A
constant enlargement in the student body has
necessitated an increase in the faculty in re-
cent years. This has made possible better in-
struction with smaller classes, and a closer con-
tact with individual students.
This college offers a four-year course in
Pharmacy with various electives for students
desiring advanced work. Each course is di-
vided into a number of laboratory and lecture
hours, the fulfillment of which gives the stu-
dent a definite number of credit hours. The
college curriculum includes courses in Phar-
macology and Biology, Pharmacy, Chemistry,
and Academic subjects with various electives.
Edward H. Niles has been Dean of the col-
lege for the past twenty years. Dean Niles
has a degree of Doctor of Pharmacy and Bache-
lor of Science at this college, also a Bachelor of
Arts degree from Butler University and has
completed additional work at Indiana and Chi-
cago Universities. Besides acting as general
advisor to all instructors and to the students
themselves, he teaches courses in Mathema-
tics, Economics, and various electives. Hos-
pital Pharmacy has been added in the past
year and is taught by Dean Niles with Profes-
sor Ambroz instructing in the laboratory work.
Professor Ambroz is in charge of courses in
pharmacy, assisted by Professor Jeffries. Pro-
fessor Ambroz has Ph.G. and B.S. degrees from
State College of South Dakota and an M.S.
degree from the University of Tennessee. He
has also completed additional work at Uni-
versity of Florida.

The College Library is one of the most improved departments of our
school. In the fall of 1938, John R. May, a graduate of Indiana University,
w/as placed in charge of the College Library. Much of the improvement of
this branch of our college may be credited to the excellent work of our Libra-
rian. Mr. May classifies and records all new books promptly upon their arri-
val and keeps the room in proper order at all times. He assists students at all
times in obtaining the desired books or magazines and keeps student records
for all out-going books.
During the past two years the library has been completely reclassified
under the Dewey Decimal System of classification. A new card catalogue has
been prepared, listing all books individually as to author, title, and subject.
This is a very efficient filing method as any book may be located at a moment's
LI BRARY. . . .
The Indianapolis College of Pharmacy has
a very complete library containing a total of
over 5000 volumes. The library has been in-
creasing at the rate of more than three hun-
dred books a year. It has a standing sub-
scription of over one hundred magazines
and trade journals. Thirty-six of these jour-
nals are bound each year, including current
issues of such publications as: Indiana
Pharmacist, Annals of Medical History, Bio-
logical Abstracts, American journal of Phar-
macy, Journal of American Chemical Soci-
ety, Franklin Institute, and many others.
The library has a very complete selection
of reference books in the fields of Pharmacy,
Medicine, Bacteriology, Public Health,
Chemistry, and related subjects. It has a
wide selection of popular magazines, as well
as books of current fiction, hobbies, religion,
and social science.
The literary contents in classical litera-
ture include the complete works of such
authors as Alexandre Dumas, 0. Henry,
Browning, Dickens, Cooper, Milton and
other classical and modern writers. Bound
copies of the Harvard Classics, Indiana Year
Book, Journal of Agricultural Chemists, and
History of the World serve as valuable books
for reference work.
Modern magazines include Reader's Di-
gest, News-Week, Hygeia, Commentator,
and a variety of others. In addition to the
library, the professors receive various copies
of publications pertaining to their special-
The average daily attendance in the li-
brary is forty-three, which is a thirty percent
increase over last year's attendance. The
library serves as a room for relaxation as
well as a quiet room in which to prepare for
classroom meditation. The library is general
headquarters for Professor Patterson and
members of The Capsule staff. It has also
ser ved c apably as "office protem" for many
long hours of extensive effort in the prepa-
ration of this book.
The room is properly adorned, containing
pictures of our faculty members and large
class pictures of hundreds of pharmacists
who have gone on before us. The library has
been constantly improved from year to year
with some cost to the college.
Underclassmen, you are very fortunate to
have such an extensive and complete library
at your disposal and we hope that you may
use it to your greatest advantage.

For the past ten years, Miss Lydia E. Koepper has been Secretary of the
Indianapolis College of Pharmacy. She has also served as personal secretary
to the Dean during this time. She is in charge of all office records and the
college book store.
Miss Koepper renders much valuable service to the faculty and to the
entire student body. She is never too busy to take a telephone message, to
help a student find employment, to loan a pencil or look up an individual
record for any student. We are proud of the efficient and capable manner in
which she has always aided our class and the help she has given to the many
students before us.
HE M I S T U
THE FACULTY OF I. C. P.
Asleep in my study it was sporty
I visioned our faculty of 1940,
And this wonderful school of Pharmacy,
Hurrah! We salute you, I. C. P.
First is Dean Niles we'll all agree,
Knows his Pharmacy from A to Z ;
The Dean — a wizard of our profession
Never too busy to help with a lesson.
Next let us mention Prof. Ambroz,
With a method of teaching what he knows.
He lectures well in drug Dispensing.
And his Pharmacy is most convincing.
Now Prof. Jones, he's a regular scout,
His Materia Med. may make you pout.
A friend of us all, or perhaps a lass.
Squire of many a Pharmacog. class.
Prof. Michener? Why he instructs Chem.
Oxidation equations! He'll balance them.
"Now let's begin, to start, to commence";
His Organic Chemistry is rather dense.
To a class in Pharmacy next we go
Prof. Jeffries is there, you know.
He dictates History at a mighty rate;
To hunt or fish he's never late.
Prof. Patterson, praise to thee;
Pat graduated from I. C. P.
Is Bio-Chemistry his real joy, or
The Senior-Class sitting on the floor?
Now let us journey to Bacti. Lab.
Prof. Prettyman no doubt we'll have.
He's tall and handsome (quiet you mugs)
He's a natural hunter of colored bugs.
HE M I S T U
Prof. Schumacher of Butler realm,
In Freshman English he has the helm.
We all have learned and all agree,
It's incorrect to say: "It's me".
Prof. Harwood, his very first year.
Has many friends as you shall hear;
In Pharmaceutical Chem. he keeps tab.
He's an eager helper in every lab.
Dr. Schaefer is our skilled M.D.
He lectures in Physiology.
Don't bother to study, learn, or cram.
You aren't supposed to pass that exam.
Mr. White in Law knows his stuff,
His Saturday lecture isn't enough.
I challenge you to doubt me that.
He has no love for a Democrat.
Miss Koepper, secretary of our school;
To help each student is her rule;
She helps us all, I'm sure you'll agree,
"Please, a bottle of ink or a lab key".
Prof. SwansoR, teaches Bio-assay;
I'll pass that exam, I hope, I pray;
But won't all that stuff drive you silly?
He's from the research Staff of Eli Lilly.
Now Mr. May keeps the Library right.
Yes you may enter, but please be quiet.
There's many an article to study or read.
He'll help you find the book you need.
But let me awake, I've slept too long;
Yes, this faculty is a happy throng;
But, underclassmen, really they're grand;
It's a top-notch College of the land.

SEN lOR SONG
(Tune Indiana) .
Classmates, school will soon be over, O'er for you and me;
Soon now we must part forever, far away we'll be;
This is what will happen; again we'll seem to be
Back there again in Indianapolis, and it seems that we can see
Those old happy days of Pharmacy that are but a memory;
The good old days, we can't forget them
And the pranks we used to play;
When we dream about the friendships and the teachers
Then we long for that dear old I. C. P.
HISTORY OF CLASS OF HO
FRESH I ES OF 36-37
On September 14th, 1936, seventy-one slightly bewildered students
entered the mysterious realm of college life. They were representatives of
five states, namely: Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Ohio, and South Dakota. Our
freshman class, consisting of 64 men and 7 women, was heartily welcomed
to the school by Dean Niles.
We enjoyed the first week, since we were not interfered with by the
all-important upper classmen as we tried to associate names with faces and
subjects with professors. Our new life was soon oriented by finding a place
of residence, becoming acquainted with classmates, getting jobs, and then
buckling down to our routine of college work.
We learned to appreciate Miss Koepper and her ability to answer all of
our incidental questions. Plants and plant life began to have meaning as Pro-
fessor Jones instructed us in Botany. Professor Jeffries introduced to us
that famous old piece of apparatus peculiar to the profession of pharmacy,
known as the mortar and pestle. The Dean instructed us in Pharmaceutical
Mathematics after reteaching us how to make use of high school arithmetic.
Professor Michener very ably instructed us in the use of chemical facts with everyday life and
with our profession. Professor Schumacher, presented with the almost impossible task of teach-
ing a group whose interests were elsewhere the correct usage and expression of the English
language, directed the endeavors of the class in that direction. Physiology, presented to us by
Dr. Schaefer, enlightened us about the make-up and functions of our bodies.
Six weeks of college life passed quickly, and the excitement of those first examinations was
over. Dean Niles explained how little we knew about studying. Many resolutions were made
after the mid-semester grades were issued. Everybody was more or less classified as to the
Shortly thereafter, the class was assembled for organization and election of class officers.
Out of a choice and worthy field, and a closely contested race, the following students were
elected for the year:
Jack Hill -- President
Earl Fletchall Vice President
Frank Fossmeyer „ Secretary
Dean Ambroz..... - _ Treasurer
Immediately we transacted our first business which was the selection of a class pin.
The first vacation came at Thanksgiving and there was but one thought, "home". It was wel-
comed by all, especially the out-of-state members of the class, many of whom had not been home
since the beginning of the school year. Work was resumed intensively for a few weeks and then
school was dismissed for Christmas vacation.
After a few weeks back at school we swung into the second semester, which was a repetition
of the first in that there were days of study, brightened now and then by amusing class room hap-
penings, mistakes and all that goes to make a college career a part of one's self. On one occasion
two of the girls were unable to obtain "powdered alcohol" from the stock room, and reported
such. As the days passed on, our laboratory work was more interesting because theory was being
applied and practical results were accomplished.
A basketball team was organized and sincerely supported by the student body. Dixon, Belton,
Battista and Ambroz played, making a fine showing.
Some members, missing from the laboratory, could be accounted for in the recreation room
playing ping pong. With the consent of the faculty, the sport became a part of our lunch hour.
With the completion of the first year at hand we looked forward to the next year, when we
should assume the all important role of sophomores.
The year's work was a complete success and we parted for our vacation with the intention of
returning again in the Fall, and with a feeling of gratitude toward the faculty for their efforts in
helping us to lay the corner-stone of our great adventure. Pharmacy.
Eager to avail ourselves again of the splendid educational opportunities presented by the
Indianapolis College of Pharmacy, fifty-five members of our Freshman class returned to school.
We welcomed three transfer students, William Hutchinson, Herman Roller, and Robert Atkins.
Professor Prettyman, from Butler University, became a member of the faculty at this time.
He will share the responsibilities of the Biology Department.
The first few days were reconstruction days; laboratory desks were assigned and apparatus
checked. During our spare moments we showed our authority as sophomores by making life
miserable for the freshmen. The class being organized into two sections, the work proceeded
smoothly, week after week going by, with a note of accomplishment on every hand.
October found us with class officers elected and plans for social events underway. Through the
leadership and guidance of Dean Niles all of the lady members of our class were initiated into the
Lambda Kappa Sigma National Pharmaceutical Sorority, when Phi chapter was organized. This is
the only chapter of this sorority in the state of Indiana.
The monotony of the first semester was interrupted by the annual fraternity dance which was
enjoyed by all.
A little different type of work was taken up in which less theory and more laboratory practice
occupied the curriculum. Many members of the class had located jobs which proved helpful in the
class room and were encouraged by the college.
Following the holidays, semester finals approached, bringing with them an atmosphere of sus-
pense, fear, and wonder, according to the way in which we had conducted ourselves toward our
On February 2nd, class work was resumed. The class was saddened when it heard of the death
of Eugene Whitis, a very likeable class member and a good student.
A few months of studying and standing in the laboratory gave us the idea that chairs were
needed to aid in our comfort. The Dean came to our rescue, informing us the laboratory was a
place to labor, and not to rest. Again we proceeded onward.
As our leisure became noticeable, we anticipated heavier assignments from Professors Jeffries,
and Michener, in their respective subjects. The Blue-Book grades show it is an established
fact that Professor Michener's exams occur either before or after social events.
What a relief that exams were soon over and work finished for the year. The class more than
"welcomed this summer's vacation.
The class of 1940 is at the halfway mark of its college career. We do not lay claim to any
special achievement but we do feel proud of our ability to discern the true purpose of our training
— to be of service to mankind.
JUNIOR YEAR 1938- 1939
The Fall of 1938 found students arriving with zest to begin their studies anew. A class of
sixty students answered "here" to the roll call.
We made new acquaintances with students transferring from other schools — James Mont-
gomery, John Hemrick, Wayne Dunham, Ralph Thornburg, and William Rothwell.
With the coming of the first month we began to feel as though we were really students and an
intimate part of the institution. Organic chemistry was a popular subject, and how! Everyone
worked in the laboratory, to his or her disgust at times, but Professors Michener and Patterson
struggled to instill in our minds the belief that some day we would be real chemists.
Many improvements and additions were made in the school. To the Junior class came the privi-
lege of initiating new seats in the lecture room. Several offices were remodeled; and a new mimeo-
graph was purchased. A fan system was installed in the pharmacy laboratory. A splendid im-
provement in the library was made, when it was cataloged and reclassified by Mr. J. R. May, our
The college is very proud of the unusual display case built in the amphitheater. The case
contains many rare and valuable collections pertaining to pharmacy.
Our anticipation of a Thanksgiving vacation was preceded by a series of mid-semester exami-
nations. We found many new "incompatibilities" besides those introduced by Professor Ambroz,
our instructor in Dispensing Pharmacy. To the surprise of many, "pill-pipes" could not be ob-
tained at the stock room.
The sorority sponsored a dance at the Hoosier Athletic Club. It turned out to be a most color-
ful and enjoyable occasion.
After spending a few weeks back at school, after a delightful Christmas vacation, the second
semester was upon us.
The first weeks were spent like the first semester, in hard study, and we felt our time had not
been spent in vain, and that pharmacy as a profession was going to be well worth the four years
required to master it.
Professors were beginning to expect us to know a little something now and then; and their
language was becoming more and more professional as the days went by. As a whole we had
learned when the occasion called for it, to function as a body.
Bowling became a new activity, heartily supported by the student body. The tournament
caused great excitement.
We approached the end of the school year before we knew it. Our work kept us so busy that we
allowed nothing of importance to happen that is worthy of being recorded here.
We look forward to a reluctant parting at the end of the term, but we hope to return next
September with higher ambitions and ideals than ever for the future.
It is our desire to continue along these lines, and when we write the final chapter to our history
in the year 1 940, may we say that the task is completed and well done.
SENIOR YEAR 1939- 1940
On September 14, 1939, the senior class reassembled in the lecture room. There were sixty
members in the class. We regretted the loss of three of our classmates, but this was compensated
for by the entrance of three new students into our class. They were: Jane Smith, Gretchen Corey,
and Melvin Wolf.
Dr. Harwood, of Valparaiso University, became a member of the faculty at this time. He became
a member of the Chemistry Department.
Miss Koepper was in the office to welcome us back. She has proved our friend on many oc-
The first week was spent in the usual preliminaries, such as completing registration, first as-
signments, and other organization work. The second week was the beginning of real school,
consisting of lectures and laboratory work. Many of the students were mere novices at laboratory
work, and their initial experience can now be looked upon with amusement.
An air of dignity marked our carriage, but this seemed not to exempt us from many hours of
This year we have the honor of initiating another course. Hospital Pharmacy, which has been
added to our curriculum. It includes thirty-six hours of practical experience at the Indianapolis
City Hospital dispensary under the supervision of Mr. Muse and Mr. Ulrich. Already this has
proven very beneficial In our course of study.
November 16th, mid-semester examinations began. The students seemed to realize the im-
portance of these review exams, this being the last lap in our four lap course.
Dr. KIrby, representing the Abbott Laboratories, presented a most entertaining lecture on
"Detailing Your Doctor".
Thanksgiving vacation offered us a short relaxation and everyone appeared more eager to work.
The necessity of electing officers was felt. The following students were elected for the year:
|oe Mendenhall..-- President
Robert Todd Vice President
William Hutchinson _ - Secretary
Paul Portteus - Treasurer
Professors Ambroz and |ones were elected class sponsors and faculty advisers.
The class decided to issue an annual, which the Dean and class sponsors approved. After a
stormy class meeting and much electioneering, Charles Cummins was elected editor; Don Pruitt,
business manager; and Thomas Belton, advertising manager. They worked very diligently to
make this annual a success.
Christmas holidays were drawing near, and everyone was rejoicing to think they could forget
beakers and mortars for a few days, to indulge in frolic and really get back to life.
Semester finals caused much unrest and proved a short test for both knowledge and endurance.
"A word to the wise is sufficient"; so we squared our shoulders and decided to make this year the
Due to the hospitality of the Eli Lilly Co., the senior class spent February 28, 1940, in a very
enjoyable manner. The class visited the Indianapolis plant in the morning and was taken by the
company to the biological laboratories at Greenfield, Indiana. In the evening, in the Travertine
Room at the Hotel Lincoln, Mr. B. R. Mull was the principal speaker and gave' an interesting talk
on "Drug Stores and Pharmacy". A show at a downtown theater followed the dinner. The trip
was enjoyed by everyone and will long be treasured as a red letter day in our memories.
The yearly enthusiasm for the Ping Pong Tournament was interrupted by a series of mid-
semester exams; nevertheless, many games were witnessed by a large student body.
Parke, Davis Co. extended an invitation to the senior class to visit their manufacturing
plant and biological laboratories. We left Indianapolis, April 16th, traveling by train to Detroit,
Michigan. That evening we enjoyed sight-seeing in the city. The next day was spent inspecting
the plant and laboratories. Entertainment was provided for the group in the evening. It was a
weary but happy crowd that returned to Indianapolis on the 1 8th. The trip was very educational
and inspiring to every participant.
As this annual goes to press, the class as a whole is harried with those inevasible final examina-
tions. June 3rd will see us in caps and gowns, acknowledging the reward that is ours in return for
our four years of effort spent in this college. Even as we graduate we can see another black cloud
hovering on the horizon of our ambitions in the form of the State Board Examinations. It is the
wish of the class as a whole that each and everyone of us may successfully account for himself at
that time in a manner that will be a credit to our Alma Mater, that has come to mean so much to
us in these past four years.
To our friends and fellow students we feel a debt of gratitude for the kindness and hearty co-
operation they have extended.
As we leave dear old I. C. P. we pause to say farewell to the faculty, all of whom have given
generously of their time and knowledge that we might be better fitted to serve our new em-
ployers, the public.
(Tune, Annie Lysle)
In the largest inland city,
Dear to memory.
Stands our worthy Alma Mater
Great in Pharmacy.
Raise the chorus, swell it onward.
Loud our praise shall be;
Hail to thee, our Alma Mater!
Hail to I. C. P.!

CLASS OF '41
JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY
It was a bleak, typical September day In 1937 when the doors of the
Indianapolis College of Pharmacy swung open wide and bade a cheery wel-
come to fifty-four freshman students, most of them very recent high school
graduates. To these fifty-four students just embarking on a long and hitherto
unknown voyage, a college career seemed very necessary. It was with much
zest and zeal that we assumed the title of "Green Freshies".
Before many days had passed, we had become familiar with all our pro-
fessors through their lecturing. Although we were not able to prepare a first
class emulsion, we could make U. S. P. Simple Syrup after our first month of
schooling, and we had a vague idea of how much water a 250 cc beaker would
Since no organization is complete without its executives, we held a
caucus one day and proclaimed by secret ballot our class members for the
positions as president, vice-president, secretary and treasurer. Professor Jones
became our freshman class sponsor, assuming the task of guiding the plight
of our ship through the deep, perilous waters leading us to our Sophomore
year. During our freshman year, many students purchased class rings and pins,
which were appropriately engraved with skull, crossbones and the letters

September, 1938, rolled around much too
fast, but even so, we had repaired our hull
and deck, fore and aft, mended the mainsail,
and we were ready to lift anchor on the
second portion of our scientific voyage.
Most of our crew had returned from their
summer months' vacationing, and by this
time we had begun to realize the true sig-
nificance and advantages of our course. So
far on our journey we had encountered but
little bad weather. But 'ere long we began
to sight icebergs, atolls and huge animals
in the form of Pharmacognosy, Chemical
Analysis, and Manufacturing Pharmacy.
Nevertheless, we were very willing to for-
sake our former title of "Green Freshies" to
be known as the "Saucy Sophomores". Pro-
fessor Jones was again to be our class spon-
sor, and a new group of class officers was
installed by popular vote. It was about this
time that we learned some of the more in-
tricate phases of the pharmaceutical arts
and sciences. As each day passed we gazed
more optimistically at the horizon, for we
knew that we soon would be half-way
through our voyage.
September, 1939, found our crew men-
tally refreshed, and none the worse from
our previous months of hard study. "Jolly
Juniors" immediately became our nick-
name, and jolly we were. Having passed
our first two years of sailing the high seas
of pharmacy with few mishaps, we were
classed as upperclassmen. We began to
assume the aspect of mature apprentice
pharmacists, and we had profited immense-
ly from our previous experience. Again we
selected our class officials, Professor Jones

ance have been ours for these last three
years, and the remaining forty-four of our
homeward bound class are pointing with
anxious hands to that port of joy, accom-
plishment and distinction — Graduation.
Even though we still have one-fourth of our
mythical sea venture remaining, we can
fearlessly say that the final leg of any jour-
ney always seems the longest, but often the

AN ODE TO THE DRINKING FOUNTAIN
From early morn till afternoon,
Again between the classes,
Around the fountain students mill
In undistinguished masses.
And thru the halls upstairs and down
These thirsty students run
Until too much of noise prevails
And professors spoil the fun.
Each person airs his pet dislike
While waiting for his turn.
The drinking fountain's quite the place
The current news to learn.
HE M I S T U
When we study Pharmacog.,
Everything seems in a fog.
Aloe, Ginger, Cocculus,
About all these they make a fuss.
But if there were no drugs to learn,
And all the profs were cold and stern,
You know right now where we would be;
We'd say goodbye to I. C. P.
In Chemistry are formulae
We learn them but we wonder why.
Beakers and flasks and graduates
Solutions, salts, precipitates;
Tests for Aluminum and Lead,
To study these requires a head.
The hardest blow it seems to me
Is when we pay our breakage fee.
And now we turn to Pharmacy
From N. F. VI to U. S. P.
Elixirs, powders, ointments, pills
Spirits prepared in copper stills.
Exams galore and mental strain.
Doses to learn that tax your brain.
Our only hope is looking toward
The day we learn we've passed the Board.
CLASS OF '42
SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY
During the early part of Septem-
ber in 1938, the largest class of its
time, totaling eighty-three students,
entered the portals of the Indian-
apolis College of Pharmacy for the
first time — entering into the career
and profession of Pharmacy. Four
states of the union — Indiana, Il-
linois, Ohio and Michigan — were
represented by this record-breaking
The first two weeks of school can
truly be classified as "hectic" — new
adjustments to be made, new sur-
roundings, new teachers and new
faces. Such terms as "Pharma-
"Parenchyma", etc. were mentioned
and many of the students thought
that these were the names of some
of the instructors or perhaps the roll
was being called. After the first two
weeks though, each student was
quickly becoming adjusted and ac-
quainted with his new adventure.
At last the big moment arrived —
students would start laboratory
work the next day. Everyone had
been waiting for this moment, and
now the chance had come. The lab-
oratories were entered and here such
things were discovered as, "Precipi-
tation", "Theoretical Yield", "Levi-
gation", and "Calci-nation". Also
that glass was insoluble in the water
running through the table troughs.
Accounting for lecture work, new
theories were discussed, chemical
and botanical terms launched, and
pharmaceutical math was entered
into. The days were quickly passing
by — class officers were elected, class
pins ordered, bowling tournaments
held, and Christmas vacation was
now in sight. The two weeks' vaca-
tion proved to be really restful,
those first semester exams loitering
in the offing.
CLASS OF '42
These exams proved only another hurdle
to be passed, and during the last few days of
January the new term had begun.
During the second term, the same course
was continued with more interesting mate-
rial boring farther and farther in. Bowling
tournaments, basketball games, and class
meetings were continually held and the first
year had passed before most had really no-
ticed. Finals were then held during the last
of May and this was the last hurdle before
the summer vacation.
Came the fall of 1939, school had begun
again and now these students were distin-
guished sophomores. Perhaps a smaller class
had returned, but what was lost in number
was made up for in enthusiasm. The last
part of September was spent in reorganizing
and class officers were elected, basketball
started and class parties planned. Everyone
was busy in one way or another — Pharma-
cognosy, Manufacturing Pharmacy, Qualita-
tive Analysis, Pharmaceutical Latin, and
Pharmaceutical Chemistry. Again the time
was quickly passing, and Christmas vacation
was a forgotten memory with final exams
again staring into the faces of all. These
were taken and the final lap of the Sopho-
more year was started.
Classes were nearly the same as they had
been during the previous three semesters,
with perhaps a few more breathing spells.
Bowling tournaments, ping-pong tourna-
ments, and basketball provided recreation
during the last three months.
The Sophomore Class wishes to express
its sincere appreciation to the faculty, Dean
Niles, Mr, May and Miss Koepper for their
untiring efforts in bringing it closer to the
goal of Pharmacy: we hope when the final
chapters are written in 1942, that all work
will lead to the ladder of success —
For when that one Great Scorer comes
To write against your name,
He writes not that you won or lost
But how you played the game.

MY UNCOLLECTED THOUGHTS
How often I have traveled far
In thoughts serene and new.
And wondered what's in store for me
When my school days are through. —
I've thought about this future world
And help that I could give,
In making it a better place.
For all mankind to live. —
I've thought of aiding science,
To banish and to clean
Diseases from this earth of ours,
So prevalent they seem. —
I've thought of being very rich
And never want for things,
To care for just myself alone
Like vain and idle kings. —
I've thought I'd like to sail the sea
My course set toward the sky;
Or just to sit and dream of it
And let the world go by. —
I've thought and dreamed, planned and schemed,
A million things or so,
And pictured each and every one
As only I will know.

FRESHMAN CLASS HISTORY
On September 13, 1939, the now
famous class of '43 was born.
Ninety members, consisting of three
girls and eighty-seven boys, made
up the class. Four states and most
of the counties of Indiana were rep-
The first week we were in a daze
most of the time, what with strange
surroundings, strange faces, and
many a fond thought of home. We
soon became acquainted among our-
selves, however, and found that our
professors were not the ogres of
our imagination, but real human be-
ings like ourselves.
Due to the illness of Dean Niles,
Professor Ambroz, who had met
most of the freshman students dur-
ing registration, introduced the pro-
fessors to the freshman class. The
professors in turn introduced us to
the worlds of Botany, Chemistry,
Pharmacy, English and Pharmaceu-
Soon the need for organization
arose and the following members of
our class were chosen: Marvin
Archer, President; Don Murphy,
Vice-president; Joyce Roesch, Secre-
tary; and Henry Kyburz, Treasurer.
A committee was appointed to
select our rings and pins. They
were made specially with the school
emblem in an attractive design.
The Freshmen held their first
class party December 18, 1939, in
the school social room. Cider and
doughnuts were served as refresh-
ments and a good time was enjoyed

CLASS OF '43
At noon on December 20, 1939,
the class disbanded for Christmas
vacation. On January 2, 1940, the
class reassembled and began to pre-
pare for final examinations.
On January 29, the class, now
made up of eighty-one members, be-
gan second semester work with two
new subjects, namely Chemical
Mathematics and Physiology.
During the month of February the
class began planning a freshman-
sponsored dance for the college to
be held sometime in March. The
dance was held on March 28, with
a large attendance including most
of the faculty.
During March and April a ping-
pong tournament was held in which
the freshman class entered more
members than any other class and
made a good showing.
In the latter part of April the Bot-
any class went on a field trip to Fort
Benjamin Harrison, for the purpose
of coming in closer contact with
plants in their natural environment.
The class is now eagerly (?)
awaiting the FINALS to be held in
the latter part of May, hoping
against hope that we will all return
next September as Sophomores.

THE ROMANCE OF PHARMACY
From the complicated science of pharmacy and chemistry as we know
it today, we sometimes stop to wonder how this all began. As we delve into
the matter we find it has a simple, yet a quite unbelievable, beginning.
Physicians and pharmacists were formerly the same. Later, as the art
of medication grew, a differentiation began. Alchemists sprang into being.
Their occupation was called Alchemistry, and its origin has often been asso-
ciated with early evidences of the importance attached to gold. In short, it
was an attempt to turn all the baser metals into the noble metals.
This later developed into the search of the Elixir of Life which was
sometimes called the Philosophers' Stone, and was depicted as a panacea for
all human ills, capable also of restoring youthfulness and prolonging life. Not
only was it supposed to possess these qualities but also to change all base
stones into precious ones and soften every kind of glass.
The designations of the stone and the accounts of its appearance are
innumerable. It was often assumed to exist in different orders or degrees of
Through the centuries alchemy gradually was replaced by scientific
chemistry as we know it today. The dying spark of the alchemic torch had
lit the flame of a new chemistry, which arose Sphinx-like from the ashes of
FOR MY MISTURA
To pay for my Mistura
I've been scraping like a hyena
Every penny, nickel and dime

TH E STAFF
Early in our senior year, Dean Niles expressed a desire that we publisin
"The Mistura", the senior yearbook of progress. The Senior Class responded
immediately and the faculty selected the skeleton staff to begin work at once.
The important task of Editor-in-Chief was placed rightfully upon the capable
shoulders of Charles Cummins. Don Pruitt was selected as Business Manager
and Thomas Belton was placed in charge of advertising.
These students were capably assisted by Carl Kyburz, Jack Hill, and Leo
Dorn in their respective positions. This staff in collaboration with Dean Niles
selected the remaining staff. These students were selected because of their
individual interest and ability in their special field. We wish to thank the
entire class, the faculty, and the student body for their splendid co-operation
and assistance in helping to publish this book.
The student gets the book,
The school gets the fame.
The editor gets the worry,
The staff gets the blame.

HISTORY OF THE "CAPSULE'
It was in the early spring of 1939
when three persons combined their
efforts and established "The Cap-
sule", which was to become the of-
ficial student publication of I.C.P.
These persons were Dean Niles, Pro-
fessor Patterson, and Darwin Aid-
rich. The purpose of this paper is
not only to describe the student
and college activities, but also to
create a friendly and cooperative
spirit among the students. The task
of editing it was placed mainly in
the hands of the students.
With these things in mind, the
editors proceeded to select three re-
porters from each class, and The
Capsule was well on its way toward
The first issue of The Capsule
appeared April 5, 1939, and it
was received with much enthusiasm
by the student body and faculty
alike. For the first time in several
years it became quite apparent that,
in addition to the cooperative spirit
among the student body, there was
also ample and adequate literary
ability among the students.
Four issues were published during
the remaining months of 1939
spring quarter. Since its first issue,
The Capsule, a four-page publica-
tion, has shown a continual improve-
ment with each issue. The editors
believe that its primary purpose has
been fulfilled, and that it has borne
its duty well. We hope that The
Capsule will always remain a part of
the school life of I.C.P.
The reporters for the year 1939-
40 were: Robert Bell, Ross Carpen-
ter, William Krogh, Robert Staggs,
Roselene Freije, Craydon Blue, Har-
old Clark, Byron Lucas, Richard
Clay, Max Boyd Apple, Hilda Sakas,
and Darwin Aldrich.
"Make new friends, but keep the old,
These are silver, these are gold.
Friendships that have stood the test,
Time and change — are surely best.
Brow may wrinkle, hair grow gray,
Friendship never knows decay.
For 'mid old friends, tried and true.
Once more we our youth renew,
Make new friends, but keep the old.
These are silver, these are gold."

HISTORY OF LAMBDA KAPPA SIGMA
Lambda Kappa Sigma was organized under the name of Lambda Kappa
Society at the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy, Boston, on October 14,
In 1916 the name was changed to Lambda Kappa Sigma and during the
next year the local society took steps to nationalize the sorority, becoming
Alpha Chapter, upon the organization of several chapters in other schools.
The council of Alpha Chapter conducted the affairs of the Sorority from
1917 until May, 1922, when a graduate Grand Council was organized. This
council served the national sorority until 1926 when the first biennial was
held in Boston. The constitution as revised in 1925 provided that at this
convention there should be three members-at-large elected instead of four.
At the 1932 biennial the constitution was revised to include the office of
Editor and eliminate the six year member-at-large.
The first copy of the "Blue and Gold Triangle" appeared at the 1926
biennial and was published annually until 1930 when it was changed to a
quarterly. All life subscriptions are placed in an endowment fund, the interest
of which is to be used for publication of the Triangle.
Successive biennials have been held in Chicago, 1928; San Francisco,
1930; Philadelphia, 1932; Chicago, 1934; Boston, 1936.
The flower of Lambda Kappa Sigma is the yellow chrysanthemum; the
colors are old gold and blue.
October 14 of each year is set aside as "Founder's Day" which is uni-
versally observed. Each chapter provides a special program in commemoration
of the founding of the sorority in 1913. Appropriate messages should be sent
to each of the living founder members of the individual chapters.
March 15 of each year is "Hygeia Day", when the first woman phar-
macist, according to Greek Mythology, is honored. Hygeia was the goddess
of health and daughter of Aesculapius, the god of healing who not only
healed the sick and wounded, but even brought the dead back to life. The
preparing of the medicine ordered was left to the charming Hygeia, who in
works of art is portrayed as a youthful and beautiful woman, clad in long
flowing robes in the act of feeding a serpent from a shell. A purely scientific
and professional program is suggested for observance of Hygeia Day, includ-
ing a reunion of graduate members.
LAMBDA KAPPA SIGMA SORORITY
During the college year 1936-1937. the
women students at the Indianapolis College
of Pharmacy desired to form a chapter of
Lambda Kappa Sigma Sorority. Through
correspondence, we learned that we must
first have a well organized local sorority.
In the spring of 1937, a meeting was
held at the College of Pharmacy, and with
the cooperation of Dean Niles the Cinchon
Sorority was organized. A con-
stitution and by-laws were
adopted and the following offi-
cers were elected: president,
Ruth Knierim; vice-president,
Roselene Freije; secretary,
Florene Taylor; treasurer, Lu-
cille Kuhn. The regular meet-
ing day for the sorority was
the third Thursday of each
After the summer vacation regular meet-
ings were resumed in October, 1937. It was
decided to have two monthly meetings. The
first meeting was to be on the first Friday
of each month at the College and the second
was to be held in the homes of the sorority
members on the third Sunday afternoon of
The Cinchon Sorority then had a mem-
bership of thirteen including ten active
In January our sorority extended its ac-
tivities and a publicity committee and an
entertainment committee were appointed.
The activities of the sorority continued
throughout the year. The American Chemi-
cal Society held a dinner in the Social Room
of the college in which the sorority mem-
bers helped serve. The Sorority
gave a dance at the Hoosier
Athletic Club and everyone en-
joyed themselves. In April the
sorority gave a dinner in the so-
cial room of the college. One
hundred fifteen attended.
In April our secretary wrote
to Mrs. Dirstine to ascertain
the details for becoming a
chapter of Lambda Kappa Sig-
ma. Mrs. Dirstine was very cordial and help-
ful. It was finally decided that installation
should take place on June fourth and fifth.
Mrs. William H. Collins of Chicago was our
installing officer. We found her work to be
very inspiring and impressive, and we were
pleased to become a member of such a dis-
tinguished sorority. Lambda Kappa Sigma.
Our installation dinner was held at the

For four years now, we've been to school,
To gain our share of knowledge.

Of learning in this college.
Each year we come and do our part.
And then our friendships vary.

Really turned out swell.

And fill our lot; where'er the spot;
So now our days are numbered.

in the colleges of pharmacy in the United
States. It is a strictly pharma-
ceutical fraternity with mem-
bership limited to Colleges of
Pharmacy. There are two
classes of chapters, viz., col-
legiate and graduate. The
chapters of both classes have
equal rights and privileges. The
governing body, called "Alpha
Chapter" or the Grand Coun-
cil, is first on the chapter roll.
Total Chapters: 89 (Colle-
giate Chapters, 53 ; Graduate
Chapters, 36). Total member-
The fraternity is divided into fifteen
provinces. It publishes its Constitution and
By-Laws; The Agora, an esoteric publica-
tion which contains the directory and which
v/as published annually from 1903 to 1910,
since then every five years: The Mask, a
periodical, issued every month during the
college years from 1903 to 1910, and since
then issued quarterly; and a song book.
The Fraternity is governed by "Alpha
Chapter" or the Grand Council which has
met in annual conventions
from 1879 to 1908. until
1922 biennially, and since
then every four years. During
the interim between sessions,
the administration of the fra-
ternity affairs is in the hands
of the Grand Officers. The
provinces meet in conventions
during years other than na-
tional convention years.
The Fraternity colors are
scarlet and cadet gray. The
flower is the red carnation.
The badge is diamond shaped,
displaying a mask raised from the face
on the black enamel center. The Greek
letters "Kappa" and "Psi" appear one
above and one below the mask. The eyes
on the mask and the border of the badge
may be jeweled.
KAPPA PS I
BETA UPSILON CHAPTER
Beta Upsilon Chapter of Kappa Psi originated from a local fraternity
called Psi Chi Psi which was founded in January, 1929, through the efforts of
the faculty. Junior and Senior members of this school. On February 26, 1930,
Psi Chi Psi was installed as Kappa Psi. Dr. Darbaker, of the University of
Pittsburg, National historian of Kappa Psi, officiated with the aid of Mr.
Painter from Louisville College of Pharmacy and our own beloved Professor
Jones, who hails from Xi Chapter at Ohio University.
There were twenty charter members of whom three were facultate,
namely: Dean Niles, Professor O. G. Anderson, and our deceased brother, Pro-
fessor Edward F. Wagoner.
Officers for the first term were: Chas. R. Rogers, Regent; James A, Sul-
livan, Vice Regent; Oliver G. Anderson, Secretary; and Larry Lamborne, Treas-
urer. Under the guidance of these worthy men Beta Upsilon Chapter soon
moved forward. New members were added and social activities were started
consisting of banquets, parties and other forms of diversion. It was from this
strong foundation that Beta Upsilon has grown to what it is today, one of
Kappa Psi's outstanding chapters.
At the beginning of the year 1931 Beta Upsilon organized a basketball
team that was destined to hang up a great record for the Old Rose and Cadet
In November, 1932, initiation was given to eight new members and
Professor Ambroz transferred from Tennessee. A formal banquet was held
in their honor at the Hotel Lincoln in the Lincoln Room.
Many outstanding dinners and dances have been held since then which
will long be remembered by everyone.
Beta Upsilon has as its aim all that is good and honorable in Pharmacy
and pledges its sincere support to the Indianapolis College of Pharmacy and
all its projects.
The officers for 1 939 were: president, Charles Cummins; vice-president,
Tom Belton; secretary, George Kimbrough; treasurer, joe Battista; historian,
Darwin Aldrich; sergeant-at-arms, Acky Carderelli; chaplain, Dean Ambroz;
faculty advisor. Professor Jones.
The present officers are: president, Robert Arrol ; vice-president, Dar-
win Aldrich; secretary, Roger McCowan; treasurer, Richard Clay; historian,
Harold Brickly; sergeant-at-arms, Robert Hardy; Chaplain, Willard Cook;
faculty advisor. Professor Jones.
The present membership stands at twenty-two. Three new members
have been received since the start of the 1939-40 school year. There are five
faculty members. Dr. Harwood being the latest faculty member to join our
Beta Upsilon chapter has had a total of one hundred and sixteen mem-
bers, which includes eighty-eight graduate members.

HE M I S T U
A PHARMACIST IN THE MAKING
Take four fine full grown school terms, see that they are thoroughly
free from bitterness, rancor, flunked exams, and sleepless nights; cleanse them
completely from all freedom and enjoyable evenings. In short see that these
four years are freed from all the past — have them as fresh and clean as when
they first came from the great storehouse of time.
Divide all these months into twenty-eight or twenty-nine school days.
Do not attempt to make up the entire batch at one time, as often the whole
lot is ruined in this manner. But prepare one day at a time in the following
Into each day put twelve parts of study, eleven of work (some people
omit this ingredient and spoil the flavor of the rest) , ten of Chemistry, eight
of Pharmacy, nine of meditations of exams, seven of Biology, six of hope, five
of fidelity, four of rest (omitting this is like leaving out the acacia from an
emulsion) , three of prayer, two of desire to succeed, and one for good luck.
If you have no conscientious scruples, add two grams of good spirits, one
fluid dram of folly, forty grains of play and q.s. with good humor. Pour into
a mortar ad libitum cum vigorous agitation. Percolate thoroughly with bril-
liant heat. Garnish with smiles and a sprig of joy to cover disappointment and
failures. Submit to trying examinations and the board of Pharmacy, serve

HIAWATHA GOES TO PHARMACY
If you ask me, whence my story?
Whence the legend of the druggist,
With the odor of his drugstore,
With the pills and salve of healing;
With the sound of grinding mortars,
And the herbs and roots he's gathered;
With the druggist's work to aid you ;
As with care his service renders.
I should answer, I should tell you:
From the forests and the prairies;
From the cities across the ocean,
From the legends of Greece and China;
From the lore of ancient Egypt,
From the skill of priests and doctors.
Comes the oldest of the health arts,
Comes our choice of all professions.
Said the father — "Hiawatha
Co ! My son, to Pharmacy School !
Seek for thee a trained profession.
Mingle with the learned and learning."
To our college he did hasten
All alone walked Hiawatha.
Proudly with his books and mortars;
Proudly with his graduates and Arny.
You shall hear how he, our hero
Worked with care and with precaution;
Learned the valence and the symbols
Learned to balance his equations,
Conquered his Math and Botany,
Conquered his "heap big" U.S. P.
He learned the dose of every drug.
He learned their use; from whence they come.
As Sophomores it was Quant, and Qual.
Organic Chem. he loved them all;
He studied plants and Pharmacog.
Studied each native plant and herb.
Learned the art of drug dispensing.
Learned the skill of the Pharmacist.
With his pills and powders folded,
With his art of prepared tinctures.

And by their joys and by their tears:

SOC I ETY
Since we, as studious Freshmen, under-
took to become ethical pharmacists, it has
been our esteemed custom to have our time
for play. It seems we did not outdo our pred-
ecessors, but let it be known we were over-
shadowed. To all those who made our so-
cial calendar possible we extend our sincere
It was on the night of November 11,
1936, that we showed our right to brag.
The Indiana Vagabonds furnished very ap-
propriate music for the dance held by Kappa
Psi at the Hoosier Athletic Club. It was
noted some of the boys had too much on
their hips and became quite lippy, much to
the amusement of others.
December 1, 1936, started a series of so-
cial gatherings in the school. Students were
invited to come and spend those weary eve-
nings. Card games and the now-outlawed
Bingo were played by those attending.
The highlight of this series was the
gathering held before we wayward sons de-'
parted for the Christmas holidays. Dean
Niles furnished refreshments and prizes,
and also added great dignity to the occasion.
Dan Cupid started members of our class
trotting to the altar on May 1 0, 1 937, when
Virgil Baker and Rosemary Decker took the
holy vows. The ceremony took place in the
little gray church on the Monument Circle
with the Rev. Powell officiating.
On May 18, 1937, Kappa Psi gave
a dance at the Hotel Washington for the
survivors of the well-known "Hell-Week".
The new members were further initiated
into the mysteries of the fraternity while
partaking of a sumptuous repast. Music
was furnished by a String Ensemble.
The saddest event of our school career
was the death of Eugene Whitis, a beloved
member of our class. Truly a credit to oui
class, Eugene passed away on November
3, 1937. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs.
Lee Whitis of Indianapolis, and a graduate
of Washington High School of Indian-
Due to restlessness of the students in
general. Kappa Psi sponsored a gala dance
at the newly decorated Hoosier Ath-
letic Club on the night of November 17,
The student body was invited, as well as
any alumni who wished to refresh old mem-
ories. AM members of the handsome sex
were decked out in their very best, and from
the array of fair damsels one was reminded
of a beauty contest. Jack Berry's Orchestra
furnished the music to which one group in-
sisted on doing the "Big Apple".
"The little man who wasn't there" again
stepped into our ranks taking into his fold
of marriage Stanley Dobronovsky and Ida
May Marsh. The new year was just twenty-
two days old when he returned to his coup
de grace. Where those stogies are is still a
Newly initiated members of Kappa
Psi were entertained at a dinner dance May
12, 1938 in the Riley Room of the Claypool
Hotel. Faculty members of the fraternity
and alumni were among the guests present.
Although not officially confirmed, it is said,
we quote, "Certain frat brothers should be
taught the difference between siesta and
While others were on vacation, William
Hutchinson began a life of marriage with
his bride, E. Bella Jones, at the Meridian St.
Methodist Church on July 27, 1938. Miss
Jones is a Hoosier imported from Oakland
The newly organized Lambda Kappa
Sigma Sorority, with Miss Lois Tetter as
president, staged their first dance at the
Hoosier Athletic Club on November 26,
1938. The uniqueness of this affair will
well be remembered. To the delight of the
eyes of many a gentleman were the Rosalyn
girls in their stunning dances and ah-so-
shapely figures. Music was in the swing-and-
sway rhythm of Art Berry's Orchestra. After
the dance many a couple was seen at the
rendezvous on the Pendleton Pike enjoying
a snack or a snip.
After bargaining and arguing as to where
and when. Kappa Psi held a dance in the
Cold Room of the Hotel Antlers on October
6, 1938. As the slapping of that bass floated
out of reach of our almost numb ears, 'twas
the sweetie of Earl Roush who entertained
the crowd with musical selections on the
glass tumblers of an unbreakable variety.
Earl's duck, it is said, possesses a mania for
smashing glasses and we have come to the
conclusion she is a distant relative of Carrie
Nation, famous smasher of windows of the
The aftermath of one of those so-publi-
cised "Hell-Weeks" was held and celebrated
on May 5, 1939 at a dinner dance in the
Claypool Hotel. The newly elected mem-
bers of Kappa Psi, six in number, enter-
tained the guests by impromptu descrip-
tions of the process of cleaning Monument
Circle with a toothbrush. Walking Around
the Monument backwards, and what have
you, etc., etc. This delighted the members
of Lambda Kappa Sigma, who were the
guests of honor for the occasion.
Ferris Corey, of the class of '37, being on
the Pharmacy side of life, took one of the
fairer members of our class, Cretchen Klee,
to be his bride on June 1, 1939. It may be
said they started the ball rolling for a very
good season, as others in our midst followed
shortly, before returning to the grindstone.
As was predicted and whispered, "The
little man" reappeared on June 1, 1939 to
tie Gerald Studley and Evelyn Hancock to-
gether with his famous and secret matri-
monial knot. Even Stud does not remember
how it was tied, nor does he care, according
to informed circles.
It may be said by some members of our
class that a word well chosen brings the
best results. As proof they give you the
marriage of Omer Wagahoft and Mildred
Lingeman which took place on August 31,
1939. It may not be admitted by Waggle,
but it is likely he was talked into his marri-
age by certain old timers in our class.
It came to pass on the night of October
29, 1939 at the Hoosier Athletic Club that
we, as seniors, lost to a very worthy oppon-
ent in the art of whooping it up. We alibi
that our four years have deprived us of that
old ability to outdo both younger and older
attendants at the dances of previous years.
Our defeat was due mainly to certain mem-
bers of the Freshman Class, being very ex-
pert in the swingiest version of Jitterbugging

unto you. Freshman Class, that famous Lov-
ing Cup presented by the Lambda Kappa
Sigma for the class with that old ability to
One of the most enjoyable days we have
spent in our entire school career was on Feb-
ruary 28, 1940, when we were invited to
visit the plant of Eli Lilly & Co. A special
convoy of buses took us to the Indianapolis
plant on that snowy Wednesday morning.
At the plant we were most cordially wel-
comed by Mr. Eli Lilly, president of the con-
cern. The class was divided into small
groups with individual guides to show us
points of interest. At noon the class reas-
sembled and a group picture was taken.
Then, to our delight, we had dinner on the
house in the dining room. Our bus convoy
returned and took "we 60" to the biological
plant at Greenfield, where demonstrations
of methods of obtaining vaccines and anti-
toxin were given. We then returned to In-
dianapolis and vv'ere taken to the Hotel Lin-
coln. At the banquet held in the Travertine
Room, Mr. B. R. Mull was the principal
speaker, and acting as toastmaster was none
other than Mr. Eugene Beaseley, Indian-,
apolis District sales manger for the Eli Lilly
& Co. A theatre party followed at a down-
As this year goes gliding along, January,
February, March, April, in the order named,
we seniors look forward to two things. First,
we have been invited to take a trip, not to
see the country, but to go to Detroit and
ramble through the large plants of Parke,
Davis & Co. If all goes well April 17th is the
day. To complete this picture of pleasure, it
is with good will that we leave our Alma
Mater to become wayward sons.
So now we send our copy to be corrected
by that old Simon Legree, the Editor-in-
Chief. We've lost a few hairs, more sleep,
and burned the midnight oil 'till three, try-
ing to get this column done before the lash
starts to swing. If there is anything left
when he is through we can say it was Janie
Smith and Robert Staggs who "done it".
SOLDIERS Gr SAILORS
Soldiers and sailors all are we.
Fighting life's battles and sailing life's sea.
But marble to heroes and shafts to might,
Reared unto beauty and passing sight,
Tell not of valor oft worthy the more
Than graven legend and bloody lore;
Who conquers self — though no trump
Nor shaft arises — true fame has found.

Of the athletic program at I. C. P., bas-
ketball plays the most important role. Any
student interested in the game is entitled
to strive for a position on the team, and all
are urged to play. Students from each class
played on the team for the past season of
The "Pharmics" started out slow dur-
ing the early part of the season, being
stopped by the Indianapolis Bankers, Hoos-
ier State Commercial, Indianapolis Art
Academy, and the Dental College of I. U.
Extension before gaining momentum to
forge ahead. They came back strong,
though, seeming to have hit mid-season
stride by winning six of the following eight
games. Some of the teams bowing to the
Gold and Purples were the Indianapolis
Bankers, Lincoln Chiropractor School, Den-
tal College, Lambda Nu Fraternity, McNiels
Lunch, and Hoosier State Commercial.
Of the high-lights, the "Pharmics" met
the N. C. A. G. U. Gymnastic College, but
were turned back due to their superior oppo-
sition, who demonstrated more experienced
and more polished ball handling.
Next came the City Tournament in which
the "Rx's" won the first round but were
defeated in the second round by the Weide-
manns to the tune of 32-25.
It can well be said that all members of
the team entered into the "spirit of the
game" and cooperated throughout to show
that all of the playing was entirely for the
love of the game.
Thanks of appreciation must also be
given to Bill Fink, coach, and Prof. Jones
for their untiring effort of maintaining a
team to measure up with the ones during
the past now lost in the pages of
Occasionally, in the course of diligent
pursuance of the pharmaceutical arts and
sciences, it becomes necessary in the eyes
of most students to indulge in the slam-
bang game of ping-pong or table tennis. So
when March rolled around, we proceeded to
dust off the tables and nets and prepared to
engage in a few intramural games.
We had not held a college ping-pong
tourney since 1938 when Aldrich, then a
mere freshman, took the honors by defeat-
ing Ulrich, a senior ping-pongist. So we
were all anxious to fight it out for the cham-
pionship again this year. A total of 64 stu-
dents, including one coed, signed for the
tourney, and play began to determine the
one student of those 64 who would reign as
ping-pong champion for a year.
To make it more interesting, each class
held its own playoffs. The ultimate winners
of each class then got together in a "tourna-
ment of Champions" to determine the grand
champion of 1 940.
In the freshman class playoff, the favor-
ites soon appeared to be Niles, Archer, Ben-
nett, Krogh and Passo. Competition waxed
stronger and stronger as the tourney pro-
ceeded, and by the time the field was re-
duced to two, the remaining players were
Niles and Passo, the slight darkhorse.
Passo proved his ability by defeating Niles
in 3 of 5 close games for the freshman
The sophomore tourney found Jones and
Adier fighting it out in the finals. Adier, by
winning 3 of 4 games from Jones, was
crowned the sophomore class champion.
The junior tournament produced such
players as Pinella, Clay, Knierim, George,
Baker, and the defendingchampion, Aldrich.
When this tournament had ended. Aldrich
still remained the junior class champion by
defeating Pinella in three straight games in
the final match.
Among the favorites in the senior class
were Belton, Griffin, Wolf, Ambroz, Dun-
ham and Arnold. Dunham and Belton met
in the final match, and Dunham came
through by virtue of 3 victories out of five
Now for the big playoffs involving the
four class champions. A glance at the four
remaining exponents in the art of paddle
wielding shows that Passo, Adier, Aldrich
and Dunham met in the match which was
to establish the I. C. P. champion.
In the first match Dunham found Passo
not resistant enough to his cross court
slams, the result being 3 victories to one in
favor of Dunham.
In the second match, Aldrich and Adier
fought for nearly an hour before Aldrich
succeeded in winning 3 of the 5 closest
games ever seen at I.C.P.
Now we saw Aldrich, the Junior cham-
pion and defending champion of I.C.P.,
matching his shots with Dunham, the driv-
ing Senior champion and challenger. To the
winner went honor and prize. To the loser,
compliments and solace for his gallant
showing and defeat.
In the 40 minutes of brilliant play by
both boys, Dunham took the lead 2 games
to 1, only to lose the last 2 games by close
scores. Thus another page in the history of
ping-pong was written, with Aldrich the
I.C.P. ping-pong champion of 1940, and
Dunham, the runner-up.

PROPHECY CLASS OF '40
One day Dean Niles called me into his office and
said, "Due to the fact that the class of 1940 has
proven itself to be so unpredictable and utterly care-
free, I wonder if you could prevail on the spirits to
give a forecast of the future of each of the individual^
members of the class." Knowing that Dean Niles was
in quite a quandary over the problem of who should
graduate and who should not, I agreed to try to coax
the spirits into a passive mood, through the medium
of the crystal ball.
So the plans were made, Dean Niles, all the anxious
professors, and myself met at the college one excep-
tionally dark night to do our deed. The rendezvous
having been prepared, we took our places. I was to
peer into the ball. Things happened that dark and
mysterious night that I never thought possible. After
many long hours of intense concentration and pleading,
the destinies of the members of the class of "40" were
At first the images appearing in the ball were too
misty to be seen, but in time they became clearer, and
the first objects to be seen were the figures — 1950,
A. D. Then came the image of
Joe Mendenhall trying vainly to fold a paper of pow-
dered charcoal with one hand and at the same time
drawing a glass of beer with the other.
Next I saw Judson Schmidt still attempting to crash
the sport pages just to have an excuse to get out of
through the door, with a man behind her urging her to
hasten. Ruth seemed to have a diamond ring on her
Jack Hill was shown in tails, tophat and white tie,
selling livestock medicine to a farmer. He seemed to
be doing pretty well at that.
Carl and Virgil Baker were establishing an all-time
record by having a continuous fire sale In their drug
store for the past ten years.
Lucy Kuhn was still hurrying from place to place. No
wonder you didn't get any taller, Lucy. You are wear-
ing yourself off at the bottom as fast as you grow on
George Freije was still the little ray of sunshine. He
entertained his drug store customers with drum solos.
George Corey and Earl Fletchall were given the bene-
fit of the doubt and shown to be the best of friends,
even though they are now always at each others throats.
Robert Todd was still recuperating from the sweat he
had trying to get out of paying damages when he
backed his Ford into some innocent motorist's nice new
After much pleading, Joe Battista came forth dressed
in a large checked suit, working in a modern drug store
apparently his own, and spending the proceeds on the
Upon asking as to the future of Ruth Knierim, there
was a general "blackout", but it finally lighted up
again. She was seen sweeping four tough years out
Tom Belton was shown leading a very peaceful life,
working day in and day out. It's not very exciting, but
it sure is profitable, Tom.

Two figures representing Paul Portteus and Robert
Pigg were next seen arguing. The point seemed to be
whether they should get a job or not.
I saw "Pete" Nussmeyer down at Evansville doing a
pretty good job at running a drug store. I thought he
would still be up at the "Y" looking out the window.
What do you suppose he saw out there?
Frank Fossmeyer seemed to have given up Pharmacy
and was trying to find something more profitable, and
doing pretty well as an investor in ball pools and such.
Maynell Dalby was shown in the pose of the
"Thinker". He seemed to be trying to decide if his
name was really Dalby or Dolby.
William Prasuhn was still busy being the best soda
jerker in the city of Indianapolis and the best listener-
to-er of red hot dance bands broadcast by the local
After a blackout, I saw Ralph Thornburg still trying
to corner a certain girl down at Bloomington.
William Williams was having a very good time being
the best dressed man on Indiana Avenue.
George Griffin was shown not having done anything
about the drug education that he got at I. C. P. All he
did was think about "The Relation of Marriage to a
The spirits had nothing to say about Cardarelli ex-
cept — Achilloccia Cardarelli, Sodas and Drugs.
Omer Wagahoft was still asking himself why hydro-
gen explodes and why you must take off your pants
after all the damage is done. This referred to the little
incident way back when we all were a bunch of incau-
The spirits were very unkind to "Rosy" Freije and
showed her working very contentedly in a drug store
and asking herself why they taught her all the stuff
about chemistry, pharmacognosy and such, when she
was a student at old I. C. P.
Bob Blowers had given up the art of Pharmacy and
set himself up in a studio, drawing pictures for twice
the money he'd ever got in Pharmacy.
Teford Cooper, the smallest man in the class of 1 940,
believe it or not, had grown to be quite a robust indi-
I saw Doyle Arnold with eight class graduates in front
of him, and in great jubilation. He had spent the last
ten years trying to combine music with the art of com-
pounding drugs. He can now play the scale by striking
eight partially filled graduates with a stirring rod.
Carl Kyburz and Kenneth Kruwell were supposed to
own a drug store in partnership. They can now sit all
day and play that little game in which you use four
lines in this way ----#.
Don Pruitt was shown with a drug store on horse-
back, traveling around the countryside. Don gets along
nicely with farmers.
Gerald Studley was still maintaining supremacy in
the art of giving wrong answers to very simple ques-
Jim Dixon, Leo Dorn and Robert Gackenheimer were
still trying to figure out how they could all get into that
old model "A" and still be comfortable.
Melvin Wolf was shown trying to better an almost
perfect game with the galloping dominoes.
Dean Ambroz was doing great experimental work on
the subject of why a minor explosion occurs when con-
centrated sulfuric acid is poured into distilled water.
James Bagley was shown in his big drug store up on
Elwood Blower, that high pressure salesman, was
shown selling his own preparations. His most profit-
able item was his former hair grower; it was then being
sold as a depilatory preparation.
At this point I thought that the spirits had left us,
because as I looked mto the ball it seemed to take on
the appearance of water. My fears were soon forgotten
because I saw a shark swimming in the ball chasing
a mermaid. The shark had a face like that of Bill
After the foregoing picture faded into nothing I saw
the image of Tommy Coers, that genial gentleman of
swing, offering a saxophone solo as a side attraction in
his very prosperous drug store. It's nice work if you
can get it.
Page one hundred three
Arthur Henschen was pictured as a very prosperous
wholesaler, sitting back in his easy chair selling us
suckers our supply of drugs.
Stanley Dobronovsky was shown having spent the last
ten years perfecting a cigar especially designed for
druggists. This one won't go out when laid down.
Herman Roller was working in a drug store, whether
his own or not I'll never know. He seemed contented
enough though, because as usual he was as quiet as a
Bill Hutchinson was doing very nicely playing in a
riverfront honkytonk with his Tin Pan Band. He never
seemed to have gotten into the drug business.
Robert Atkins was shown as chief butcher in a
slaughter house. I wonder how he overcame his horror
at the sight of blood.
Hazel Abdon was shown as a first class playgirl. 1
only tell things as I saw them.
John Hemrick had joined the Anti-Soot League and
was seen offering a speech from a soap box rostrum.
Robert Staggs was still patting himself on the back
for his wonderful imagination. He seemed to be saying
that he didn't need a microscope to draw all those silly
things in Bacteriology.
Gretchen Corey was asking herself if it was necessary
for her to go to Pharmacy School to be a good house-
Anita Battista, represented by an attractive figure,
was shown keeping tab on all the boys at the Pharmacy
Janie Smith, ten years after graduation, was still
recuperating after that strenuous senior year at the
Indianapolis College of Pharmacy.
Ray Urich was arguing for the return of the barber
shop bath tubs and the right to sing in them.
Wayne Dunham was enjoying a position as ping pong
coach on the faculty of the Indianapolis College of
Forest Pauli was shown as a very jovial individual
with an excessively large abdomen and a very bald
head, whistling while he works in his little drug store.
James Montgomery was shown to own everything
in the thriving little city of Brook, Indiana, except
the drug store.
Charles Cummins was looking forward with great
anticipation to editing a record of the activities of the
class of 1940. He seemed to have forgotten all the
trouble he had editing the annual when he graduated.
Just as the last of the prophecies were given, the
dawn was breaking through and as the sun came up,
the ball gave one last burst of color and then became
dull and oqaque. From this I surmised that the spirits
had left us. Dean Niles seemed very pleased that none
of us were destined to disgrace the field of Pharmacy,
even though some of the forecasts were not as good as
he would have liked. If better goals are to be your lot,
you are the ones to choose your paths. Maybe these
forecasts are true, maybe not, only time will tell.
Time is time and students are few.
Time will change and so will you.
Spirits come only in crystal balls,
May you have success with very few falls.
Florene Taylor was in charge of the prescription
department in her husband's drug store.

WOMEN IN THE FIELD OF PHARMACY
Pharmacy, the science which treats of the
art and practice of compounding drugs, of-
fers a new and interesting field for women.
While to the laity "Pharmacy" usually con-
veys only the routine work of the pharmacy
or corner drugstore, the profession em-
braces many closely allied sciences, such as:
chemistry, bacteriology, and materia medi-
ca. A few branches of these sciences in-
clude the manufacturing of cosmetics, per-
fumes, proprietary remedies and galenicals;
the collection and identification of crude
drugs; tests and assays for purity; and pre-
paration of serums and vaccines. Thus
there are many opportunities other than
those offered to the retail druggists for
women who pursue pharmaceutical educa-
tion. The medical and pharmaceutical pro-
fessions are alike open to her and await her
There are sixty-seven schools of phar-
macy in the United States of which the ma-
jority require a minimum course of four
years, leading to the Degree of Bachelor of
Science in Pharmacy. In order to be a regis-
tered pharmacist, the candidate must pass
an examination before one of the State
Boards, the requirements varying somewhat
throughout the country.
Women looking toward success in this
field must be intelligent, neat, accurate,
conscientious, honest in carrying out the
technical requirements of their work, and
tactful in their dealings with the public. As
a class, women have been found to possess
the objective measures of physical capacity,
longevity, vitality, and endurance, to a
marked degree; and are also gifted with a
remarkable development of sympathy, intui-
tion, and insight. These are all qualities in-
dispensable in the modern struggle for rec-
ognition in the professional world.
One disadvantage in the admission of
women to the practice of pharmacy has been
the confinement during long hours, but this
condition is rapidly being bettered due to
the fact that many states have barred the
employment of women after certain hours.
Imagination of pharmacy suffering by en-
trance of women into this field is wrong. If
drugstores would employ more women phar-
macists, much of the drug and cosmetic
trade that the department store now enjoys
would be turned to the smaller pharmacy.
Women constitute over three-fourths of
the shoppers, and those of the more refined
classes will always prefer to buy personal
items from women.
All hospitals employ one or more trained
pharmacists in the dispensary and many
women are holding positions in this field as
well as in diagnostic laboratories. Here the
working conditions and hours are favorable
to women. One qualification possessed by
the majority of women, and of greatest im-
portance in the dispensing pharmacy, is thei'r
patience in compounding accurately. Wo-
men pharmacists are particularly adapted to
fill the positions in the hospitals. The
pharmacy is often one of the show places
of this institution and under the supervi-
sion of a woman it usually is in more per-
fect order, is more scrupulously clean and
in better "showing" condition. The de-
mand for women pharmacists in hospitals is
increasing and is greater than the supply.
Many department stores maintain drug
departments, offering an opportunity for
women pharmacists to fill managing posi-
tions, inasmuch as it is required by law that
a registered pharmacist be in charge of such
divisions. When seeking a position in the
department store pharmacy, she must meet
the competition of saleswomen whom the
manager can employ for a third of the
amount that she asks, or in the prescription
department of the store must often over-
come the prejudice of the manager who
seriously objects to women associates.
Pharmaceutical manufacturing plants
have many divisions in which women may
find employment. The analytical depart-
ment and the pharmacy department offer
many opportunities. Women all over the
United States today are concentrating their
energies in the routine work of various lab-
oratories. The opposite traits of men and
women are both necessary in the scientific
laboratory. Although the members of the
pharmaceutical profession have been rather
conservative in the employment of women,
they are rapidly awakening to the realiza-
tion that here, as in many lines of work, the
logical distinction should be among indi-
viduals in reference to ability, and not be-
tween the sexes.

The winter months are over. Cone are
the hard wracking coughs of bronchitis; the
painful, wheezy breathing of asthma; the
sneezy sniffles of a head cold. But after all,
what has been one of the great benefactors
— some magic substance in nose drops, nasal
jellies, liquid or capsule form to give us re-
lief. Would I be wrong in mentioning Ephe-
drine as this remedy? How familiar are you
with this drug? Who discovered the
source? What is the history of Ephedrine?
Therapeutic properties? Where obtained?
Ephedra or Ma Huang is the herb of Ephe-
dra sinica, which has been used by Chinese
physicians for ever 5000 years. It was one
of the drugs which is said to have been
tasted by Emperor Shen Nung, who placed
it in the "medium class". Probably even
Confucius had something to say about Ma
Haung. The Chinese used this herb chiefly
as a circulatory stimulant, diaphoretic, anti-
pyretic and cough sedative. In America a
number of the Ephedra plants were used by
the Indians for various purposes. The Coa-
huila Indians made a cooling beverage from
E. nevadensis and the Panamint Indians
made bread from the ground roasted seeds
of the same plant.
In 1887 Nagai isolated the principle
Ephedrine from Ma Huang while Chen,
since 1 923, has given the drug and its active
principles such extensive study that it is
now one of our most popular medicaments.
In 1924 Chen and Schmidt initiated a wide-
spread distribution of literature listing all of
Ephedrine's therapeutic values. It included
its use as a stimulant to the respiratory cen-
ter, dilation of the bronchi, palliative in hay
fever, nasal catarrh and also used to prevent
the fall of blood pressure that might occur
in spinal anaesthesia.
China was very enthusiastic over the use
of Ma Huang in the manufacture of Ephe-
drine. Probably this was due to the dra-
matic circumstance that the traditional faith
of the Chinese in one of their ancient reme-
dies was justified by Western science. The
natives were proud of the summer blossoms
of their Ma Huang fields. They made a very
efficient and productive cultivation. Then
came the war clouds. These fields were
seized like everything else by the greedy Ja-
panese. No longer were the shipments of Ma
Haung in neat compact bales. Adulteration
increased more and more. The production
and cultivation was careless. Many of the
Japanese shipments of Ma Huang were re-
fused by various pharmaceutical firms.
In America there was much investigation
being carried on with Synthetic Ephedrine.
Work of this kind was important because in
the first place should the synthetic form
prove valuable therapeutically, it would
greatly facilitate the question of supply, for
now the production of the natural drug was
inadequate to meet the demand for clinical
uses. Secondly it was desirable to determine
whether or not the natural and synthetic
products had equal activity since most of
the levo-rotary isomers are more powerful
pharmacologically than the racemic form.
Today a synthetic ephedrine is supplied by
E. Merck of Darmstadt, Germany and by
Merck & Company, Rahway, New Jersey.
Today all of these pharmacological ques-
tions have been answered. Qualitatively,
quantitatively and clinically the synthetic
form possesses all the characteristics of the
natural ephedrine. Due to the untiring work
of the men of science, the United States
can now manufacture enough synthetic
ephedrine to supply its needs.

The shriek of a siren is heard, mad crunching brakes sound above the ever
constant noise of a busy street corner. Soon after an ambulance stops at the
entrance of a hospital. A patient is admitted, hovering betv^een life and
death. His fate lies in the hands of three distinctly different individuals, a
doctor, a nurse, and a pharmacist. Though they are all working for the same
purpose, that of alleviating the suffering of the patient, yet their duties can
not be overlapped. The doctor vi/ill diagnose the patient's case, give instruc-
tion to the nurse, and send prescriptions to the hospital pharmacist. The
nurse will administer the prescribed drugs and carry out the physician's or-
ders. The pharmacist has prepared the medicaments ordered in a scientific
manner, backed by years of training and education. It is with this latter in-
dividual that we shall pause, and consider his importance in a hospital phar-
macy of today.
Why do modern hospitals employ the full time services of registered
pharmacists? To answer this, let us investigate the requirements of a phar-
macy department in hospitals.
The dispensary should operate for two purposes:
1. To render service not only to the patients but also to physi-
cians, internes, nurses, and other members of the staff.
2. For economy to the hospital.
To meet the first requirement, a registered pharmacist renders service
to the patients by filling their prescriptions with professional skill. He
serves the physicians by being well informed on new drugs or medicinal prep-
arations placed on the market almost everyday; knowing their constituents,
therapeutic uses, sources, doses, etc.
He serves internes in much the same way, but in addition is careful to
note their prescriptions more carefully. He is a source of information on all
official preparations, new and nonofficial remedies and standard stock solu-
tions used in the hospitals.
Analyzing these and many other services of an efficient pharmacy de-
partment, hospitals have come to realize the urgent need of a registered phar-
macist in charge at all times.
To meet the second purpose a registered pharmacist is trained to eco-
nomically prepare stock solutions of commonly used preparations in the dif-
ferent departments of a hospital. He can purchase supplies, equipment, etc.,
for the better maintenance of his department and other departments, often
at a worthwhile saving to the institution.
A registered pharmacist is educated in Bacteriology permitting him to
prepare sterile solutions, properly store biologicals, test sterility of prepara-
tions, and prepare antiseptics and disinfectants.
He is also trained in Chemistry, enabling him to recognize incompatibil-
ilies and how to overcome them. He knows solubilities, tests for purity of
drugs, and if necessary can even make an analysis on preparations to deter-
mine constituents and amounts present.
A registered pharmacist's course in Materia Medica gives him a knowl-
edge of Pharmacology, Pharmacodynamics, quality, habitat, sources, alkaloidal
contents, and other plant principles of chemicals and drugs used in the art
These are but a few of the qualifications which enables a pharmacist to
maintain the functions of a first class, efficient hospital pharmacy department
at a relatively low cost.

With much respect we present here a list of alumni
dating from 1932. It is intended that these names will
bring back as many pleasant memories to those who read
them as they have to us who have compiled them.
We regret, fellow alumni of years previous to 1932,
that lack of space does not permit printing a complete list
of the eleven hundred and fifty graduates of the Indian-
apolis College of Pharmacy since its beginning in 1904.
