Between these covers we have 
striven to catch the elusive figure of 
Father Time himself, and to stem the 
tide of years that flows swiftly past — 
into eternity. 

If these likenesses of old friends 
herein retained, and these few 
glimpses of old familiar surroundings, 
make warm a place in your heart for 
our book, then we have accomplished 
our purpose, and we consider our task 
well done.

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.

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.

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 
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- 

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.

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

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.

"(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 

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 

"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.

"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 

Paper mister? Big extra right off the press!" 

Well, well, our old friend, Blake Emerson selling papers. "How come, 

"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.

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

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.

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.

Class Historian.

rumored by a member of our class that this micro-organism originates among

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.

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.

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.

The Higher the Lower 

B}- K. Parker, '30 

Ked Tillman had just informed the Pullman ticket-agent that he wanted 
a berth. 

"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.

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. 

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.

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.

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- 

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.

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 

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.

Haag (Toney). Forward 
Indianapolis, Indiana 

Tall, slender, and famous for getting 
shots under the basket. Toney is good 
for at least six field goals everv game. 

Price (Don). Center 
Arlington, Indiana. 

Another tall, rangy boy, famous for 
his long shots from the middle of the 
floor. Don never loses his head, and 
is good at keeping up the morale by 
his example. 

Lively (Bill). Back Guard 
Indianapolis, Indiana. 

Bill is big, l3ut my, how he can get 
around. He always beats them to the 
basket, and then his motto is, "shove 
them or smother them", and from his 
size, he could sure do either very ef- 
fectively. It is half the game just to 
watch him step. 

Larrison (Lee). Center 
Amboy, Indiana. 

Here is a boy who could direct the 
tip-off right where it was wanted — 
and not let his opponents catch him 
doing it, either. Lee is good on long 
shots, and fights like a bulldog.

Durkee (Mel). Forward 
Evansville, Indiana. 

Light and flashy, and a good drib- 
hlei", Mel seemed to be all over the 
floor at once, and it is a cinch his con- 
stant presence was responsible in a 
large way for the opposing team's in- 
ability to pile up a score. 

Logan (Bill). Forward 
Crawfordsville, Indiana. 

Here is the boy \\'e depended on to 
break a tie by a long; shot from the 
center of the floor. The girl fans call 
him "Goodlooking", but that just 
makes his shots even more unerring. 

Armstrong. (Guard) 
Needham, Indiana. 

Chimky. and hard to upset is Arm- 
strong. He stu'e coidd "break it up" 
when the opposing team tried to work 
a system. At that trick this boy was 
a "whiz". 

Sprandel (Gus). Forward 
Fort Wayne, Indiana. 

Gus is so crazy about basketball that 
he sleeps with one under his pillow. 
And when he gets on a floor, look out. 
for he has a dead-eye aim for the magic 
ring, and when Gus puts 'em there. 
they stay put.

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.

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 
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.

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 
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."

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. 

Send NOW for our catalog and information regarding 
this interesting profession.
