Father Time himself, and to stem the

HISTORY OF THE COLLEGE
The Indianapolis College of Pharniac}- \^•as established in April, 1904, and
on September sixth of the same year enrolled its first class, numbering- twelve
studtmts. The college was established for the purpose of gi\ing a thorough
anrl efficient preparation to }-(iung' men and women desiring to enter the field
of Pharmacy. Sjjecial courses were also given for those who planned to do
additional work in Chemistry.
All of the hopes of the founders have been happily fulfilled. The college
has been in continuous operation for more than twenty-four years. The en-
rollment the first }'ear was twehe students : in 1928, it is more than two hun-
dred. The first graduating class numbered eleven. In 1928 there will be over
fort}- graduates. This number is not as large as usual since this class is the
first to complete the three-}-ear course now given at this school.
The historv of the college has not been uneventful. It has Ijeen moved
four times, at intervals of about five years each. The cause on three of these
occasions was the necessity for seeking larger cjuarters in order to accommo-
date the steadilv increasing classes, and to provide the space necessary for
The present home of the college leaves very little to be desired. The prop-
ert}- extends one-half city l)lock on ]\Iarket street and the same distance on
Davidson street. It is easy of access, and only eight blocks from Monument
Circle. There are numerous lecture rooms of large size, two with a capacity
of more than one hundred students each. A large central amphitheatre affords
an excellent opportunity for student assembly. The large laboratories for
chemistr}', botany, bacteriology, dispensing pharmacy, scientific window dec-
oration, etc., are fully equipped for their various phases of work.
There is plentv of room for diversion; there are inter-class and inter-
scholastic basketball games, there are dances and other social afifairs.
Since its beginning, this college has had the largest enrollment, and the
largest graduating classes in the state. We can be justly proud of our Alma

To the Graduating Class of 1928
This is the twenty-fourth class to graduate from this college, and it has
the distinction of being the first to complete a three-year course. This has
been a severe test of your ability and perseverance; this is shown by the fact
that only about one-half of the Freshmen who started with you will graduate.
You are about to enter the professional world, and we wish to stress on
this occasion the importance of }"our duty as pharmacists and your concern
in Public Health. You are Cjualified by education and training to render a
distinct ser\ice to the commmunity in which you reside. You will have an
intimate contact with the public and will be in a position to disseminate re-
liable information. You should use every opportunity to co-operate with pub-
lic health agencies and individuals in allied fields. In performing such duties
you will conform to the ethics of your profession, and in addition will receive
the material rewards which accompany success.

LABOR OMNIA VINCIT
Wm. A. Logan
A class of forty-three ambitious boys
Struggling, mingling sorrows with joys.
We have no fear, for we'll trj' to do
All that is good and kind and true.
With scorn in our hearts for those who shirk
And try to flee from life's great work.
No task is too hard, no joy too great ;
It is good to dream and hope and wait.
No artist will ever paint so true
The deeds this class of ours will do.
I often sit and ponder and dream
And think of life as a living stream ;
As we float along, these souls of ours
Ma}- we pluck the thorns and plant some flowers,
Tearing away from the poison vine.
Helping some struggling soul to climb
Safe to the goal of better things —
Turning away the bitter stings.
There are too many to call by name,
Yet we know some will stand in the hall of fame.
We all will applaud and proudly proclaim.
There's not one to spare for deeds of shame
For this I will vouch, for one and all.
We will hear the voice of duty call.
Yes, we will hear the voice, and we trust and pray
We'll respond to the call in a noble way.
And some, we are sure ( for most boys do)
Will hear the voice of a maiden true.
May she who is claimed as a loving wife
Inspire her mate to a higher life.
And, fond hopes rewarded as true toil brings,
We will bravely work for the higher things.

On the fourteenth da}- of September, nineteen twenty-five, sixty-three stu-
dents enrolled as Freshmen at Indianapolis College of Pharmacy. This being
the initiation of the three-year course, such a large class bespoke the fact that
we were a group of true optimists. Hoosierdom was well represented among
us, as there were young men from almost every city of importance in the
state. And, in addition, many from other states were in evidence.
The first week we were in a daze most of the time, what with strange sur-
roundings, strange faces, and many a fond thought of home. We soon became
acquainted among ourselves, however, and found that our professors were
not the ogres of our imaginations, but real human beings like ourselves.
We started out with a will and a determination to delve into the mysteries
of Pharmacy, Chemistry and kindred subjects and reap the knowledge that
we knew must lay in wait. We plunged into laboratory work the second
week, and soon became aware of the reason for a laboratory fee, for many a
beaker, test-tube or funnel found its way to the waste jar during those first
Soon we began to feel the need for organization, and forthwith a meeting-
was called, and the following members of our class were elected to serve as
officers during the year.
Fox -- President
These men .served their class with credit throughout the school year.
Committees were appointed in various capacities, and when organization was
complete, plans for social affairs were laid.
The first event was a Hallowe'en dance, given in the school cafeteria. The
large room was appropriateh' decorated, and the affair was more than suc-
By tills time we were settled in our wa}'s. and weeks of study rolled
swiftly past unti.l we began to find we had been almost a year at school, and
that our days as Freshmen would soon be over.
As a final fling for the year, we successfully gave a farewell dance in
honor of the graduating class. We displayed ourselves this time, and held the
r 1^ t pi i g I tt r a
affair at the Elk's Club. This marked the end of our first }ear, and we parted
to return again in the Fall as full-tiedged collegians.
Of our original number, forty-one registered in the Fall of nineteen
twenty-six as members of the Junior class. We became quite sophisticated in
our new station in life, and made life miserable for the Frosh, until Professor
Edwards began taking some of the spunk out of us with some heavy assign-
ments, and told us that the study of Materia Medica did not reciuire such
foolishness, So we settled down to burn the midnight oil.
The second week of October, our class assembled and elected officers to
serve during the Junior year. The following men were chosen :
James P. Melser President
Anthon}- Haag Vice-President
H. C. Warmouth Treasurer
Horace Cutshall Secretary
These ofificers faithfully fulfilled their duties throughout the school year.
Our studies kept us quite busy all year, and many possible extra-curricular
activities were sacrificed for lack of time. Immediately before the Christmas
holidays, we were very pleasurably entertained at a dance given by the Fresh-
men class at the Lincoln Hotel. In passing, it may be mentioned that those
who attended considered this affair one of the most enjoyable in the history
of the school.
Following the usual custom, our class marked the closing of the year with
a dance given at the Indianapolis Chamber of Commerce to which the entire
school was invited. It was well attended, and considered to have been a very
September, nineteen twent}'-seven saw us gathered together again, and
this time as Seniors, everyone reporting a happ}- and successful summer.
Several new students from other schools were added to our ranks. These were
Joseph Flaherty, Truman Shirley, Daniel McCaughna, Warren F. Jones, and
Joseph Salerno. These boys, with Gordon Kidder, who entered in the mid-
term of our Junior year, are all from Chicago. They constitute a really live
part of our class, and we are more than glad to have them with us.
T 'fy t IMiolnra
The class was called to order shortly after the opening of school, and
officers were elected to serve during the Senior year. These officers were
Dan Talbott . President
Horace Cutshall Vice-President
Carl Speelman Treasurer
H. C. Warmouth Secretary
With these men at the helm, a successful year was made certain. Plans
were laid immediately for a year-book, and at an early meeting the editorial
and business staff was elected by the members of the class, and comprise the
following men :
y\nthony Haag Editor-in-chief
Wm. jMcCroskey Business Manager
Wm. Strafford Advertising Manager
The remainder of the staff was picked from among the other members of
the class by the respective heads of the departments as they saw fit.
A class dance was given in Noveml^er at the Indianapolis Chamber of
Commerce, and initiated the social activities of the year. It was an affair that
will long be remembered b}- those who attended.
After the effects of many copious draughts of punch had worn off, we
settled back into the rut of study once more, and made graduation a goal to
look forward to.
And now, as we leave old I. C. P. for the drug-store counter, we sincerely
hope Ihat we shall have left a mark for ourselves, and that what we have ac-
complished will serve as a beacon for others who wish to enter the field of

it takes on the semblance of ivy-clad buildings with weather-stained stone
walls. In the background looms an immense gymnasium and a huge stadium.
It is the Indianapolis College of Pharmacy. My, what a change the years
bring ! There is one of the professors. He looks familiar — why, it is Herbert
Bohn. Hello, Herbie !
But now the scene slowly changes and we see the panorama of what ap-
pears to be a battlefield before us. No, it is just a part of Chicago, and over-
head a huge airplane traveling at more than five hundred miles per hour
looms into view. And from another direction, a similar plane from Detroit
comes darting at the Chicago plane. Machine guns are heard, and the Detroit
plane cfashes to the ground with its cargo of Canadian whiskey. Almost
miraculously we see four men crawl from beneath the wreckage of the plane
and survey it ruefull}-. Well, who would have thought it? It just goes to
show what fate and a pipe-dream will do, for who would e.xpect Hiram War-
mouth, Carl Speelman, Joseph Salerno, and Arthur Sprandel to be caught in
a predicament like this, running booze from Detroit to Chicago by airplane?
And now what became of the other plane? Oh, there they are, flying over
the wreckage and leering down at their defeated opponents. Cold-blooded
killers--why, there is Warren Jones piloting the plane, and at the guns sit
Joseph Flaherty and Truman Shirley ! What a shock ! And who is that sit-
ting back there dropping bombs? Well, if it isn't Daniel McCaughna. A fine
business for our former upstanding, righteous class-mates to be engaged in !
Again the scene shifts, and we see a peaceful little country town. The
place must be dead — no, there is a cow roaming idly up the main street. Well,
well, well ! Look at that sign over the general store :
William A. McCroskey
Groceries, Fine Meats,
Hardware and Drugs.
The "drugs" don't seem to be emphasized very much. Let's go in and look
things over and see what the meaning of this is.
Well, where is the proprietor? Here is a little card. It says, "If the man-
ager is asleep, pull this cord." Let's give it a good yank.

"Arnold Aleier, of course, hadn't you heard?" '
"We're leaving right now, so don't worry."
''But sa}', Mac, what's the idea of putting the word 'drugs' in }our sign in
such an inconspicuous position .''"
"It is a sad story. You remember Bill Logan and Gordon Kidder? Well,
they started a moving picture show down the street, and then Leland Larri-
son opened a beauty shop. On top of that, Fayne Ottinger and Lloyd Living-
ston moved their chicken farm to town, so I decided to quit the drug business
myself and get into ant)ther line."
"Well, Mac, that is tough, and I feel sorry for you. I guess I will be hit-
ting the rods now. So long."

he sure is hard on bums."

Xext to him, we have Lawrence Johantzen. the only man alive who eats

ing in a picture called 'Love in the Twilight', and Eddy Robertson has taken
Charley Davis' place as director of the orchestra."
"What ever happened to Joe Bills?"
"Why, Joe made a pile of money out of his cigar. He invented one. es-
pecially for druggists, that won't go out."
"How about Seymour and Miller?''
"Sevmour was going to get married and Miller was to be his best man, but
the bride didn't show up on the wedding day, so Seymour joined the Foreign
Legion to try to forget, and Miller went along to keep him company. After a
time, Seymour, still heart-broken over the way his romance was shattered,
fell in love with a girl he slipped to see almost every night. He married
her and went with her to visit her people, but when he got there he found that
her father was none other than Dan Talliott, who forgave him for marrying
his daughter without his consent as father. Shortly after that Seymour found
that the chef at his father-in-law's home was Bob Teeter."
But now the smoke grows thinner, and our pipe dreams have vanished. So
ends the prophecy. It may come true and it may not, but who cares ? Tomor-
row brings we know not what, so live and love today, and let the future bring
wdiat it may.

The Passing of a Student
When he was a Freshman, the ilhiess came,
A common complaint in this domain,
He took down with Physiology and Pharmacy, too,
But when he got to Chemistr}', he was blue.
Of these studies, he was finally cured ;
Of being a Junior he was assured ;
But the poor young man was soon forced to bed
Because anatomy had gone to his head.
Then the profs worked both night and day
For fear that he would pass away.
He swallowed potions of every kind.
Liquid mixtures, and tasteless quinines.
'Twas soon the end of his Senior year,
Everyone knew the end was near,
And when the plants began to sprout.
With a sad smile, the boy passed out
of I. C. P.

The Junior class of the Indianapolis College of Pharmacy, the' Class of
1929, looks back upon the Autumn of the }"ear 1926 with more than common
interest. It marked the beginning of their career in Pharmacy. \'inet}'-seven
_\oung men and one }-oung ^voman assembled to take up the study of Phar-
macy and allied subjects. The assemlily was one to be considered interesting.
The students came from far and near, from the four corners of our state and
from man}- neighboring states.
The first week was spent in the usual preliminaries, such as completing
registration, first assignments, 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 laborator}' work, and their
initial experiences can now be looked upon with amusement.
The class being organized into two sections, the work proceeded smoothly,
week after week going by, with the note of accomplishment on every hand.
The class assembled November 1, 1926, for the purpose of forming a gov-
erning i)c)d}'. The meeting was a success, and the following officers were
George Bicknell : President
Harlow Hancock ' Vice-President
Pearl E. Murray . Secretary
Myron Miller Sergeant-at-Arms
The first outstanding event following the election of class officers was the
Freshman-Junior football game on Armistice Day. The game was warmly
contested and well played, the Class of '29 winning the game by a score
of 7 to 0.
The Christmas season, 1926, was the time of our first social event, an en-
joyable dance, given at the Lincoln Hotel. The dance was an outstanding
success, and more affairs were planned, but the pressure of study made them
impossible during the balance of the year.
e pi i I tt V a
The days and weeks rolled by and we were kept so busy that we ap-
proaclied the end of the school year before we knew it. A great deal had been
accomplished in the few short months of our schooling, so much that there
was scarcely any comparison with the class of this period, and the inex-
perienced group which had entered school the fall before.
The one point which we must not overlook is the fine class spirit which
was dexeloped. This enabled the class to function as one body, since each
student was mure than willing to work for the benefit of the whole group.
The \'ear's work was a complete success and each member left upon his
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.
The Fall of 1927 brought us together again. We were now chesty Juniors.
The love feast we had reviewing past experiences and relating occurrences of
the Summer just past will not soon be forgotten.
Eighty cf the original ninety-eight students returned to be with us again.
In addition to these, eight more came from other schools to join our ranks,
making a total of eighty-eight students in the Junior class.
The class was re-organized as soon as possible after the opening of the
school year. Work was taken up, and has continued without interruption up
to the present time.
The first class meeting of the year was held October 22. 1927, at which
lime oft'icial business A\-as transacted and new officers elected. The following-
men were chosen to fill the executive chairs.
Thomas Todd , President
George Bicknell Vice-President
Stanley Proctor L Secretary
Avon Szendry Treasurer
W. H. Whipple Sergeant-at-Arms
The next notable event was the annual Armistice Day football game. It
was played in the usual lively fashion, and was a hard contest from begin-
ning to end. We lost the game, with a score 13 to 0.
r l^r mtjgtnra
The year has slipped around again almost before we know it, work on
every hand making the months seem more like so many days.
In the middle of March, 1928, the Senior Class, for some unknown reason,
saw Jit to fly a pennant from the college building flag-pole. The Juniors, while
busy, as before mentioned, looked upon the raising of this flag as a challenge.
And, believing that all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, they entered
a spirited contest with the Seniors, disputing their right to the use of the pole
for their flag. After tearing down two flags, and engaging in several playful
scufifles, the Seniors were discouraged from making any further displays.
This incident is one of the many of those Avhich from time to time arise,
breaking the monotonous routine.
The Class of 1929 has now covered more than half the course. We do not
lay claim to an}^ special achievement, but we do feel proud of our ability to
discern the true purpose of our training — to be of service to mankind.
To the faculty we wish to extend our kindest regards for their help and
guidance. To our friends and fellow-students we feel a debt of gratitude for
the kindness they have shown, and for their hearty co-operation, without
which we do not feel that we could have established such a successful record.
We hope to continue along these lines, and when we write the final chapter
to our history in the year 1929, may we say that the task is completed and

Through much research by our staff of laboratory experts we experi-
mented and found two possible cures, one of which seems almost certain, pro-
viding tlie germs are met in the right way. We call this method of treatment
the '"pony", and it must be administered in exceedingly small and watchful
closes or disastrous results may be expected. The second treatment is also
proving quite satisfactory. It is called "the makeup". However it is a little
more expensive than the pony, and not as prompt and certain in its action. But
we find that both taken together never fail to produce excellent results.
Our laboratories are now working day and night to improve these rem-
edies, and soon we hope to give something really remarkable to combat this
terrible disease with.

FRESHMAN CLASS HISTORY
September 13, 1927 — the fatal day- Ninety-three hilarious aspiring young-
sters from every stage and walk of Hfe rushed to enroll as Freshmen and learn
the art of pill rolling and pop squirting. It was also a fatal day for the pro-
fessors of the Pill Rolling Institution who took upon themselves the almost
impossible task of pounding or otherwise injecting knowledge into some very
nearly impermeable heads. And it was certainly heart-rending to each student
to know that he was in again for three more long years of toil and suiTering.
School-work proper liegan the following Monday at sun-rise. The ex-
hilarating aspect was soon replaced by one of dilemma. During the first lec-
ture periods ever}' "Rhinie" sat with mouth agape, staring into space as the
professors languidly explained the theory of ionization and the proper (?)
way to use the Era Key and Wright's Guide.
Several weeks passed before anyone really knew what it was all about.
But then many of us began to realize that we would never make the grade
unless we could quickly discover some process of penetrating the cranium
so that knowledge could seep in.
Time still passed, (as it is in the habit of doing). On November 7, 1927, an
announcement rang through the long hall of the dormitor}^ or class-room,
as it is commonly known, that the Armistice Day football game would be
staged between the Freshmen and the Junior-Senior teams at the huge college
stadium. Colors and banners floated in the air as the rioting crowds rushed
to the scene of the battle. Armistice Day was declared a holiday from school
as usual, and the entire student body witnessed the conflict. After what
seemed to be hours and hours, the victory was handed to the husky Fresh-
man eleven who conquered to the tune of 13 to 0.
After the struggle was over. Freshman class-spirit rallied, and a class
meeting was called for the purpose of electing class ofi^icials. The following
men were elected.
Kenneth Parker , President
Lloyd CuUey Vice-President
Elsworth Stucky and Edwin Banta Secretaries

white mantle of snow. .\nd, of course, with winter came Christmas, and
every student showed intense disappointment when he learned that there was
to be a holiday vacation. Then, after spending Christmas at home, each re-
turned to answer roll call and then the nightmare of preparing for the final
exams was faced. The exams marked the end of the first semester's work, and
so we enter into the second.
With the second semester, time seemed to pass more rapidly. Our work
kept us so 1)US}- that \\e allowed nothing of importance to happen that is
worth}" of being recorded here. A\'e are about to reach the last month of our
first year at school as this book goes to press, and we look forward to a re-
luctant parting at the end of the term, but we hope to return again next Sep-
tember with higher ambitions and ideals than ever for the future.

The Higher the Lower
B}- K. Parker, '30
Ked Tillman had just informed the Pullman ticket-agent that he wanted
"Upper or lower?" asked the agent.
"What's the different ?" cjueried Red.
"A difference of fifty cents in this case," replied the agent. "The lower is
higher than the upper. The higher jn-ice is for the lower. If you want the
lower, }-ou will have to go higher. We sell the uppers lower than the lower.
In other words, the higher the lower. Most people don't like the upper even
though it is lower, on account of it being higher. When you occupy an upper
you have to get up to go to bed, and get down when you get up."
Red decided to take the upper because it was lower.

Yea ! Seniors !
Here's a toast from the Freshman class.
Also the Juniors —
We wish you the best.
You have struggled hard
To pass the "State"
But now you're the graduates of '28.
And we are sure the Faculty
Wishes you luck.
We hope we finish with just as much pluck.
But in two more years
You will read in the papers
That a hundred Freshies
Are still cutting their capers.

PHARMACY AND ITS FUTURE
It will be obvious to all that to predict the future of Pharmacy in an ac-
curate manner would only result in failure. However, some idea may be
gained as to what may reasonably be expected by the study of the history
of Pharmacy and by consideration of the present indications. When viewed
in this manner, the future seems bright. Pharmacists are more alive and are
taking a keener interest in the furthering of their profession than ever before.
They have made very fine progress along certain lines within the last few
}-ears and are still forging onward.
During the war the army did not grant commissions to pharmacists for
professional work, due. perhaps wholl}- to the low educational requirement
then in force for entrance to schools of pharmacy. Should there be another
war this reason, at least, will not stand between the pharmacist and a com-
Colleges now demand graduation from recognized high schools. The col-
lege year has been lengthened and the hours of instruction have been in-
creased. In many states, the three-}-ear course in Pharmacy was efl^ected in
the Fall of 1925.
Systems of teaching have been, changed in many schools during the past
few years. One of the most practical steps in advance is the general increase
in the amount of laboratory work offered and required. Certain schools are
doing actual dispensing work in connection with hospitals and dispensaries.
Such work is invaluable.
Another proposed advance in pharmaceutical education is the require-
ment of a preparatory year of general college work similar to the pre-medical
and pre-dental courses. The minimum course in Pharmacy would then be
four years. The conditions in pharmacy at the present time do not warrant
every man spending four years at college in order to become a registered
pharm.acist. The professional work at the ordinary drug-store does not re-
quire it, and furthermore the financial returns are not great enough. How-
ever, a few schools of pharmacy may effect this change within a short period
of time, but in the majority of cases, much will depend upon the future.
r ff t fHiglnrn
According to all present indications, business conditions in pharmacy are
going to be better. The legislation regulating store ownership which has
come into effect only a short time ago is obviously a great advantage to the
registered pharmacist as it means there will be fewer stores, and therefore,
less c un-
doubtedly marked the beginning of laws regarding the practice of pharmacy,
and these restrictions are still maintained in many European countries.
r fi t pt t g I w r
The first organized body of pharmacists met in Bruges, Belgium in 1297.
It was in the nature of a secret society, and was possessed of a hall, a con-
stitution and an official seal. This was during the period of the guilds, as pro-
fessional and trade organizations were called. Other guilds, or organizations
of apothecaries were formed in all parts of Europe, and are the proto-types
of the pharmaceutical organizations of today.
During the fifteenth, sixteenth, and seventeenth centuries pharmacy prob-
ably reached its zenith as a mysterious art. The rarity and cost of the raw
materials, the many difficult and tedious processes which had to be followed
to prepare even the simplest medicines all combined to make the apothecary
a person not onl)^ of great technical skill, liut one who was absolutely indis-
pensible to the success of the physician.
It is interesting to note that in some countries, particularly England and
France, pharmacies and groceries were conducted as one trade. This condi-
tion was changed, however, when apothecary guilds were formed under royal
sanction, separating the ]iliarmacist and grocer b\- law. -•
Carl Wilhelm Schule was a distinguished pharmacist of the eighteenth
centur}'. Schule is credited with having made more important discoveries
covering a wider range of subjects than an}- other investigator before or
During this period, works for the guidance of apothecaries and physicians
liegan to appear under the names of "formularies'" and "idiarmacopoeias."
These were issued by separate groups or communities.
Pharmaceutical education had developed to a considerable extent in
Europe before a school appeared in America. Finally, the Philadelphia Col-
lege of Pharmacy was organized, and now stands as the oldest and best
known school in the country. ,\t the present date, schools are scattered all
over the United States.
The practice of Pharmacy in so far as its external appearance is concerned
has changed markedly during the periods so briefly outlined here, and even
greater changes have come in the last few decades. Since the beginning of
the niiicteenth century, Pharmacy has taken great strides along scientific
lines, and even today, each year brings new and marvelous discoveries to the
modern pharmacist, who, with the aid of the physician, passes them on to the
mm l g i» t m t g I It r a \ ^
public. Each successive edition of the United States Pharmacopoeia and Na-
tional Formulary brings to our mind more clearly what is being accomplished
in modern Pharmacy.
There are now departments of government in each state which have solely
to do with the regulation of the practice of Pharmacy. These, with the Fed-
eral Pure Food and Drugs Act, show the advances made along these lines,
and insure the importance and standing of Pharmacy in the future.

Freshmen-Senior Basketball, March 29, 1928
March 29, 1928
The Seniors defeated the Freshman squad in a clean, well-fought game
on March 29, 1928, by a score of 63 to 25. The game was played at the South
Side Turner's gym.
The game opened with Haag getting the tip-of¥ and the Seniors losing the
ball to Crowe, who scored the first field goal. In the first few minutes of play
the ball went back and forth between the opposing teams constantly, the
Freshmen fighting like the game meant as much to them as passing a Phar-
macy exam. The Seniors scored and the Rhinies scored again until the score
stood 4 to 2 in favor of the Frosh. Then, as was expected, the Rhinies began
to weaken under the onslaught of the upperclass men, and then the Seniors
began to put the ball through the ring like boys playing marbles.
Sprandel closed his eyes and scored every time he got near the I^asket.
He led his team with eleven field goals and Haag was next with nine. Durkee
was not connecting as usual, but nevertheless, the half ended with the mark-
ers at 27 to 12 in favor of the Seniors.
The last half opened with a volley of shots from Sprandel, Haag and Dur-
kee that fairl)- took the Freshies' breath. Lamborn and Crowe starred for
the Freshmen, but it was more than they could take care of to put the Senior
squad behind after they had once gained a lead. The rest of the game con-
tinued as had the first, and the upperclasamen succeeded in smothering the
Rhinies under the large score named above. However, we sincerel}- trust that
by the time the Freshmen have reached the position of Seniors, they will be
able to do much better.

ODE TO THE COLLEGE
Three sore years ago, our fathers sent forth upon this college
fifty-t\\'o rhinies. conceived at liberty, and dedicated tu the
proposition that all rhinies are not so dumb.
Now we are engaged in a great pharmaceutical war, testing
whether a lunch counter in a drug store can long endure. We are
met in a great College for that war. We are met to dedicate a
portion of the campus as a final resting place for those rhinies
who here gave up success that the rest of the Senior class might
live. It was altogether fitting and necessary- that they do this.
But in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate, we cannot conse-
crate, we cannot hallow this ground.
If the brave students, dropped out b}- request, had put forth
a little more efifort, they might still have the pri\ilege of work-
ing gas problems under Professor AN'agener.
The Faculty will little note, nor long remember what we say
here, but how could the}' ever forget what we have done here?
It is rather for us, the Seniors no\\- facing the great worldly
task remaining before us, that we take increased devotion to the
Facult)^ and to the cause for \\-hich they gave their last full
measure of devotion, that we here highly resolve that this col-
lege, under the present Faculty, shall have in its future the best
of success, and that this college, of the students, by the students,
and for the students, shall not perish from the earth.

The friendshii) and intcrdepeiulencies that result from dail}- association,
especially in such a school as our Alma Mater, often call for a much closer
alliance. Such was the case when, in nineteen and twenty-six, the Senior class
of that year brought into existence Iota Gamma Pi fraternal order.
Realizing" that nothing can exist without ideals, the ne\\ly formed fra-
ternity dedicated itself to the advancement of Pharmac}- as one of the newer
professions, as well as to promote the social and business life of its members.
The ofTicers wdio guided the order through the days of its infancy were
Faust, Seaton, Maxwell, McDonald and Green. To these men, and to the
other brothers, who gave them substantial backing, we owe our foundation,
and the tenets of our present organization.
During the following two years, we are proud to say that the greater pro-
portion of the brotherhood was from the class of '28. Visions of a permanent
fraternal home, and a charter with a national group surged through the mind
of each loyal member, and we were spurred into activity by the weekly "pep"
meetings, but it seemed that all our plans were destined to hang fire. But we
still chng to oiu- dreams, and have high hopes of seeing them realized at some
Nearing the end of our three years of association, we can still, however,
look back with pride on our successes, and let these outshine our shortcom-
ings in other directions. We sponsored a very successful dance near the close
of the twenty-seventh school year, given in honor of a group of pledges who
had passed through our preliminary initiations and were well on the way
toward a full brotherhood. During this same year, a co-operative plan of ob-
taining rooms made it possible for a number of the boys to live in the same
house. This established a firmer bond than ever, and through this association,
many enduring ties of friendship were formed.
And now we, the brothers of the class of '28 move on, and leave behind us
the earnest desire that our aims and plans will be carried on indefinitely by
those who will succeed us.

The Beta Alpha Club comprises twenty-eight members of the Senior class.
It was organized shortly after the opening of school by an enthusiastic group
of Seniors who felt the necessity for a new social club. At one of the class
meetings the matter was brought up, and a motion made and seconded to
form a new organization.
A club meeting was held and the name "Beta Alpha Club" definitely de-
cided upon. The original Beta Alpha Clul) had been a very active organiza-
tion among the students a few years back, and this new club was to be a con-
tinuation of the old one. upholding the standards and principles of the old
group. C)tficers were elected after a very heated discussion in which "Herbie"
Bohn almost lost an ear.
The club sponsored a movement for a spirit of better fellowship and co-
operation among the student body. Its aim was fully accomplished and the
club made rapid progress during the last lap of the members' schooling. As
the club is composed onh' of Senior members, graduation will mean the term-
ination of the work started in good faith, and it is hoped that next year's class
will take up the torch, and not allow Beta Alpha to completely dissolve as an

All work and no play, 'tis said, makes Jack a dull boy. Certainly, then,
there is no excuse for our having taxed the patience of our professors by
being dull, for this class of '28 has had plenty of play in its three years of
We, as verdant Freshmen, were bidden by the Seniors to a frolic at the
school, in celebration of Hallowe'en, 1925. A big time was had by all, and es-
pecially some of the "studes", who are said to have been "stewed".
On March 26, 1926, an event of great importance to at least one member
of our class took place. George Ebert had fallen a victim of Cupid's weapons,
and on this date, the marriage of Miss Lavinnia Wilhelm, of Indianapolis,
to Mr. Ebert took place. The couple was married at the home of the bride's
parents, where Mr. and Mrs. Ebert are now living.
At Easter time, the Seniors again started the gay social whirl by giving
a dance in the newly decorated Oriental Room at the Spink-Arms Hotel. Paul
McCartha}^ and his orchestra supplied the music, which was rated "plenty
good." During the intermission, Jim Haddon, famous Charleston king, stirred
the enthusiasm of the entire assembly by his perfect execution of the most
difficult steps. ■
The approaching end of the school year brought with it the annual fare-
well dance, given in honor of the graduating class. We, as Freshmen, were
hosts for this gala event which took place at the new Indianapolis Elks'
club. It was one of those nights which come only in Ma)' and everyone seemed
to catch the mood. This dance was one of the most successful we have ever
had. The Livingston-Philips Orchestra supplied the music for which they are
famous, and many a neophyte was initiated into the mysteries of the Charles-
ton and the "Low-down" during the evening. Exhibition dance numbers were
given during intermission by "Wing" Phillips, popular local entertainer, and
leader of the orchestra. Favors for the ladies were shoulder-bouquets of
sweet-peas, and all our "dates" seemed more than pleased.
After the last saxophone's wail had died away there was a general rush for
the gas buggies parked around the club. All left for home in high spirits, but
misfortune, in the form of an inadvertantly placed traffic signal, halted the
flight of one of our popular class-mates, Joe Eisenhut, wrecking his machine
and doing other violent damage to his person. The factors leading up to the

accident have never been fully ascertained, but class wise-acres who attended
the dance have conveyed much with a "wink" of the eye. After a brief period
in the hospital, Jo was back in our midst and in plenty of time for exams.
On June 5, 1926, just a few days after the close of school, Elizabeth Davy,
of Indianapolis, and Robert Vestal, '28, were married at Christ Church, the
little Episcopal Church on the Circle. After a wedding trip they were at
home in the Lynn Apartments, on North Meridian Street.
Social activities seemed to lag sadly in the early part of our Junior year.
Could it have been that the matrimonial efforts of our colleagues had a de-
pressing effect on remaining members, causing them to cast a wary eye to the
future? Certainly they seemed unwilling to give the girls a chance, and it
was not until April, 1927, that we got together and gave a dance. However,
this Spring function seemed to make up for lost time. True to our custom, we
Juniors, who were hosts, found the very newest place in town to have our
prom. The club-rooms of the recently completed Chamber of Commerce
building were the scene of this revel. Music was furnished by Brown's Ver-
satile Orchestra, an organization of colored harmonizers. The weather failed
to smile on us, and staged instead a special program of rain, snow, sleet and
"what have you?" Indoors, however, all was gayety and even hilarity. As
the evening progressed, it seemed that the punch was becoming more and
more pre- Volstead. 'Tis said that several fair ones found it necessarj^ to
drive their swains' automobiles home due to the unsteady state of the
escorts, but all agreed it was better than walking.
May 19, 1927, found us all elated at the acquisition of a ''nephew", son of
Mr. and Mrs. George Ebert. Much back-slapping and handshaking took place
around school, and it was some little time before George was able to resume
anything resembling his usual placid routine of study.
During our summer vacation period, between the junior and senior years,
and on the date of August 5, 1927, another member of our class succumbed,
for on that date Miss LaVonne Beeson, of Columbia City, and ]\lr. Horace
Cutshall of Huntington, stole a march on ever>-one, and were married at
Joliet, Illinois. Thus fell the third victim to the great god. Hymen.
The Fall of 1927 was for the most part uneventful until the latter part of
November. At this time, those of us who are paying for our education by
clerking in local drug-stores were the guests of Eli Lill)^ and Company. We
met for luncheon at the Indianapolis Athletic Club, where we were greeted
by Mr. J. K. Lilly, president of the company, and Mr. Nicholas Noyes, treas-
urer, both of whom made informal talks. The lunch hour passed very pleas-
Page one hundred seven
r 1^ t pi t I It r a
antly, and after coffee and cigars had been served, we were taken to the Lilly
plant for a tour of inspection. A very satisfactory and educational afternoon
was spent. We left the laboratories with an even greater regard for our
friends whci so kindly made this trip possible.
On the last school day preceding the Christmas holidays, our classes gave
a dance for the underclassmen. The Chamber of Commerce had so impressed
us when last there that it was chosen as the scene for the Yuletide affair.
Music was supplied by Guy Montani and his "Wee Band." The impending
holidays made the occasion even more gay, and one to be long remembered.
And now, as time seems to speed toward the date when the class of '28
joins the ranks of the Alumni, we look forward to graduation. In the interval
between, we shall expect the underclassmen to follow tradition by honoring
us with a farewell dance. With that affair, the book of Society must close,
and this dance, too, will sweep past into history.
So venerable and sedate have we become by now that we read the ''Diary
of Samuel Pepys" in our lighter moments. Paraphrasing that estimable
gentleman, this scribe might now say, "Home in great haste, for the most
high editor-in-chief hath this day decreed that this copy must lay upon his
desk by early morn, else we shall be hanged, or condemned to a life-sentence
at flag-pole sitting. Therefore, we quit our desk at an unseemly hour, and
so to bed."

Pharmacy is interesting work. A thorough training. An
uncrowded profession. We cannot supply the demand for our
A broad geographic field ; you can locate in the East or
West, North or South, in the largest cities or small towns ;
Pharmacists are always in demand. The modern pharmacist
is more than a merchant. He is a high school graduate; he
attends college. He holds a high position in his community.
Graduate pharmacists average from 81,500 to 83,000 per year
as clerks. When they become proprietors, the possibilities for
success are unlimited. And their lives are independent. An
engineer or teacher works for an employer, always facing the
possibility of losing his place. A Physician, Dentist, or Vet-
erinarian takes a much longer and more expensive college
course than a Pharmacist. He must work for years to build
up a practice, and then he cannot sell it or even take a long
vacation leaving his business to run successfully while he is
away. A Pharmacist can sell his business and locate in a new
town or state and may establish himself in a few weeks.
Chemistry is the major part of the Pharmacy course. The
work is fascinating, with wonderful opportunities for origin-
ality and development of ideas which may lead to the highest
professional and financial success.

this interesting profession.
