Page five mm r ti t pi I g I tt r a @ 1:^1 r 1^ r pg I gi I w r a 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 satisfactory work. 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 A later. Page seven r 1^ t pi I !g I It r n FACULTY ADDRESS DEAN NILES 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.

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.

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 hectic days. 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 Lively Vice-President McCroskey Treasurer 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- cessful. 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 Page forty-Uoo 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 successful aiTair. 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. Page forty-three 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 elected : 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 Pharmacy. Page forty-four mm l r ^ t m t g I tt r a \ ^ mms^ r 1^ t pi t $ f n r a CLASS PROPHECY Hello, gang ! Get your pipes and light up. Maybe we can find something interesting in the smoke. Look, as the bluish haze curls upward and settles, 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. Page forty-six r 1^ r pi I g I It r a "(3uch, say, what are you trying to do, move a ton of bricks.-' You almost pullet! my toe ofif !" ''Hello, Alac, old boy, how is the world treating you?" "Hello, fellows. Say, you had better get out of town, the sheriff is poison on tramps." "Who is the sheriiif, Mac?" "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." "Stay off local Xo. 946, the brakeman on that train is Melvin Waltz, and he sure is hard on bums." "A nice cheerful send-otT — what have we here.'' " "From my own brother I wouldn't take less — Lm telling you, such a bar- gain you couldn't find no place!" "Mever. I'll give }ou eight hundred dollars for the drug store, and not even ask you how you got it." "You are taking the bread from my mouth, but give me the eight hundred." Who is this beating Meyer Cohen at driving a bargain? \\'hy. it is Roscoe Fritz. There must be more doing in this town than you would think from the appearance of the place. There goes a whole crowd of people. "Pley, Si, where is the fire?" Page forty-seven r tf t fWlgtwra "There ain't no fire, but there's a big carnival at the fair-grounds." "A carnival, eh, let's go !" Can you beat that, Armstrong in the show business. Listen to the barker. "Folks, we have a thousand dollars to anyone who can prove that our attrac- tions are not all fakes. All you have to do is purchase jour tickets, walk right in and state your proofs. Then trj- to get the one grand." Say, that boy has a line, and he certainly ought to have, for it is Lewis Duprez. "Don't watch me, folks, watch the shells and tell me which shell the pea is under. You have a bad eyesight, fellow, that guess will cost you a dollar. Pick the right shell folks, and you win. Anyone else care to donate to a worthy cause?" Look, it is George Ebert running the shell game. He never did work after he got married. Let's look in on the side-show. The first exhibit, introducing Robert V^estal, the world's greatest exponent of mental telepathy. Bring 3'our ques- tions on business, love, and other troubles to him and he will give }'ou the answer to 3'our problem. Xext to him, we have Lawrence Johantzen. the only man alive who eats ground glass and washes it down with liquid phenol. Tlie next attraction is a man internationally known as a statesman and author, who next month will allow himself to be shot to the moon in a rocket of his own construction. He hopes to discuss with the inhabitants — well. I'll swan, it is Pat Melser. And the last exhibit is a man who has spent years of hard labor — I mean study — at Michigan City in an efifort to determine which weighs the most, a pound of a substance with a specific gravity of 1.50 or a pound of a substance having a specific gravity of 2.098 — Bernard M. Keene. But let's get out of this hick burg and get back to the city of our dreams, our college city. Page forty-eight ^^^^^ r 1^ r fW t g I n r a "Taxi ! Taxi ! Any part of the city for fifty cents !"' and we find that after three long years at I. C. P. George Schoener is driving a Yellow Cab for a living. Paper mister? Big extra right off the press!" Well, well, our old friend, Blake Emerson selling papers. "How come, Blake?" "Oh, I wasn't making $10,000 a year in a drug store, so when Anthony Plaag and Bill Straft'ord bought out the News, I went to work for them." "So Tony and Bill bought a newpaper?" "Veh, Tony is editor and Bill business manager. Joe Kramer is staff artist for them." "Sa}-, Blake, where is Cutshall?" "Didn't vou hear? Cutshall, Glenn Denton and Melvin Durkee are in Egypt trying to make the Sphinx give the answer to its famous riddle. And, say. if you have a chance, go down to the Indiana Theatre. Don Price is play- 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. PcKje forty-nine r t^r ptiglitrn 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.

Wojahn Lawrence Zapp Page fifty-nine T ^ t IMIolitra JUNIOR CLASS 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 elected : 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. Page sixty 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. Page sixty-one 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 well done. Karl S. Ehrnschwender, Class Historian. C^^ C^l^ ^^ Page sixty-two r 1^ r pi t g I tt r a Some Junior Contributions By Reinheimei'.

Science Reveals Itself (From the junior Research La1:)oratories) At last we have solved the prolilem regarding examinations! Our conclu- sions Ere as follows; Examinations are a new species of Streptococcus which invades the college occasional!}', and to which no student is immune. It is rumored by a member of our class that this micro-organism originates among the Facultv. This sounds like a reasonable theory, and we accept it as very plausible. This species of Streptococcus feeds on the gray matter of the brain, mak- ing the victim lose his powers of thought. We have named the disease caused by the germ, "Flunkitis". Page sixty-three r ^ t i I tt r n 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.

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 Ro)' Ferguson .....Treasurer Charles Ray Rogers Class Jester Page sixty-eight r 1^ e m t g I tt V a Then followed the long winter months, the campus brightened \\'ith a 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.

"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. Page sixty -nine r 1^ t m t g I tt r a A TOAST By Sleepy Crowe, Freshie. Yea ! Seniors ! Here's a toast from the Freshman class.

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- mission. 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. Page seventy-eight 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 competition. Research along phamaceutical lines is being encouraged. Price maintain- ence will soon become a fact. There are powerful organizations of national importance now coming to the front that are aljle to adequately protect the pharmacist and to act as spokesman for him in time of need. There is an awakened class interest and a steadily rising professional pride that it is pleasing to observe. And finalh-. there is favorable publicity to counteract the unfair and untruthful criticism too often aimed at the drug-store, and the pharmacist is finding that the pul)lic is interested and glad to learn that "the druggist is more than a merchant." Twenty-Third Psalm of a Pharmacy Student I have a stud}- in which I shall not pass ; It maketh me to expose my ignorance before the class ; It maketh me to write Rx's on the board for my grade's sake. Yea, though I study until midnight I shall gain no pharmacy. For doses bother me. and uses surely trouble me. It prepareth puzzles for me in the presence of my classmates ; Surely zeroes and conditions will follow me all the days of mv life. And I shall dwell in the class of pharmacy forever. Page seventy -nine r 1^ c pi I jg I tt r n IF YOU FAIL AT PHARMACY Try This A great many of our pharmacists that are store owners express great dis- content at the amount of working capital allotted to them, and look to other fields to supply the necessary cash to carry on their chosen vocation. Also, it might be added, such a thing as the failure of a store is not unknown in busi- ness antials. Therefore, we offer to those in need of such, a proposition which cannol fail. The profit is the unearned increment, and the working basis is simply "let nature take its course." So here we present our prospectus for a bread-winning goose-farm. Rather than go into a detailed discussion of the merits and correctness of the various figures mentioned herein, we will merely outline a statement in condensed form, which, however, is as accurate as possible, since it has been prepared for us by the research departments of Bradstreet and Dunn, Wall Street, Pioneer Goose Raising Farms, Inc., and Hart, Schafifner and Marx. To begin with, it is necessary to incorporate, and offer for sale two of the shares, holding a one-third interest yourself. Thus you are enabled to enjo)^ the advantages of a corporation. Furthermore, before starting, it is well to consider the following factors. First, time is very important — you must not try to hasten results. Second, an instinctive humane attitude toward animals is absoluteiv necessary so that you can sense the feelings of the fowls upon which vour success or failure depends, and give them every consideration and attention. For instance, you must remember that a goose is very sensitive, and does not like to be caught in embarrassing and humiliating situations. Thus you will have to learn to ring a bell as you come into their presence. But in spite of all these precautions, should it be that the geese of your farm take a dislike to you and threaten to mutiny, simply act nonchalant and at- tempt to divert their minds by entertainment of some sort or other. Fall out of a tree or off a fence if necessary'. Nothing is more stimulating to a goose than a good hearty laugh and a cheerful, happy environment. When you have set your mind on entering this lucrative and interesting business, the first step is to find two congenial men who you feel will make honest and reliable partners. Then show them this outline which I have ap- pended, watch their expressions of amazement and their smiles of satisfaction and starl incorporating at once. Don't hesitate, for time is money.

Page eighty-four ri^c pil!9itttrn THE HISTORY OF PHARMACY Few people realize that Pharmacy is such an old science as it really is. Records showing knowledge of the subject extend back for centuries and centuries, almost as far as history itself. The beginnings of both medicine and pharmacy are so very closely interwovn that it is difficult to separate them. The first real manuscript pertaining to pharmacy is the papyrus, or scroll, called "Papyrus Ebers", after the famous Egyptologist by that name, who discovered it and partially translated it. The Papyrus Ebers is a continuous roll of manuscript aljout twelve inches wide and over two hundred fifty feet in length. It dates from about the six- teenth century before Christ, or, l)efore the time of Moses. It contains chap- ters not only on remedial agents and their methods of compounding, but also on ways of conjuring away diseases. Alany of the drugs mentioned are in common use today. Poly-pharmacy, or the practice of prescribing a multiplicitj- of ingredients in one compound, seems to have been in vogue in those earl}- days. Some of the formulas contain as many as thirt}--five ingredients. The writing of the Pap3-rus was done in black ink, but the chapter heads on weights and meas- ures are in red ink. Evidence that many of the formulas were used is found on the margins of the sheet, where a commentator, or possibly some ancient apothecary, has written the A\-ord "good". Scientific pharmacy and medicine really began with Hippocrates. Hip- pocrates was a keen thinker, accurate observer, and a clear and concise writer, tie said, among other things, "Life is short, opportunity fleeting, judgment difficult, treatment eas}- : l)ut treatment after thought is proper and profit- able." In the writings of Hippocrates nearly four hundred drugs were named as medicines, and a large number of these are still used. He directed and em- ployed preparations belonging to the classes of poultices, gargles, pills, oint- ments and inhalations. At the beginning of the Christian Era there were several Greeks and Romans whose names stood out prominently. Celsus, a Roman, was the com- piler of an encyclopedia of medicine. Dioscorides, a Greek phvsician. was Page eighty-five r 1^ t pi t g t ti r a especially noted for his work on Materia Aledica, and was the recognized authority on that subject for over 1600 years. PHng, a Roman, was the author of an encyclopedic work on natural history, in which he included medicine and pharmacy. Galen, another Greek, was both a ph}-sician and a pharmacist. He originated so many simple, non-chemical preparations of \'egetable drugs that }-et toda}-, such compounds are called "galenicals" or "galenical prep- arations." Pharmacies as separate establishments ^vhere drugs were compounded and sold were first instituted during the Arabian period. Among the Arabians who attained great fame in medicine were Giber and Mesui of the eighth cen- tury A. D., and Rhazes and Arericinna of the ninth centui"y. Most famous, ho\\e\er, is Alaimomides. who was the author of a manuscript having much influerice upon pharmaceutical ethics. During the eleventh century, the period of the Crusades began and had a remarkably stimulating influence upon all scientific research and professional knowledge. During the period in which the Araljs had dominated, great schools had been founded at Salerno, Cordova, Seville and Toledo. These were followed by others at Montpelier, Padua and Leyden. In these schools, pharmacy was taught as a part of medicine. The first authentic record of separation of pharmacy and medicine is found in a decree of the Emperor Frederick II of Sicih', who, in 1233, just after the close of the Crusades, issued an edict regulating the practice of pharmacy in his kingdom. The law men- tions the ' apotheca" as being warehouses where drugs and medicines were stored. The compounders of medicines were called "confectionarii", while the mere retailers of simple medicines were termed "stationarii". and the shops "stntiones". Ph}sicians were neither permitted to conduct pharmacies, nor to derive any ])rofit from the sale of medicines 1\\- an)- clandestine arrange- ment with a confectionarius. The confectionarii. in turn, were required to take an oath to prepare all medicines according to the formulary of the Saler- nian School. The prices which they were permitted to charge were regulated by law. and were so graduated as to permit greater proportional profit on sub- stances less frequently used. Pharmacies were permitted only in the principal cities, and even then under enforced restriction as to management and responsibility. This un- doubtedly marked the beginning of laws regarding the practice of pharmacy, and these restrictions are still maintained in many European countries. Page eighty-six 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 since. 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 Page eighty-teven 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.

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.

Page ninety-six ri^t m t ^ t u r n 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.

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 future time. 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.

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 orgfanization.

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 school life. 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 Page one hundred six r 1^ t |« I g f tt r a 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." Page one hundred eight r 1^ e pi i g I n r a ALUMNI.

An uncrowded profession. We cannot supply the demand for our graduates. 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.
