I swear by Apollo, the physician, by Hisculapius, by I-Iygeia, by
Panacea, and by the gods and goddesses, calling them to witness that accord-
ing to my ability and judgment I will in every particular keep this, my oath
and covenant: To regard him who teaches this art equally with my parents,
to share my substance, and, if he be in need, to relieve his necessities, to
regard his offspring equally with my brethren: and to teach his art if they
shall wish to learn it, without fee or stipulation, to impart a knowledge by
precept, by lecture, and by every other mode of instruction to my sons, to
the sons of my teacher, and to pupils who are bound by stipulation and Oath,
according -to the law of medicine, but to no other.
I will use that regimen which, according to my ability and judgment, shall
be for the welfare of the sick, and I will refrain' from that which shall be
baneful and injurious. If any shall ask me a drug to produce death, I will
not give it, nor will I suggest such counsel. In like manner I will not give
to a woman a destructive pessary. Vlfith purity and holiness -will I watch
closely my life and my art. I will not cut a person who is suffering from a
stone, but will give way to those who are practitioners in this work. Into
whatever houses I shall enter, I will go to aid the sick, abstaining from every
voluntary act of injustice and corruption, and from lasciviousness with
women or men - free or slaves. . VVhatever in the life of men
I shall see or hear, in my practice or without my practice, which should not
be made public, this will I hold in silence, believing that such things should
be spoken. . Vtfhile I keep this, my oath,
inviolate and unbroken, may it be granted to me to enjoy life and my art,
forever honored by all men, but should I by transgression violate it, be mine

A school or college is a complex having many parts with differing
functions. There is the building in which it is housed and containing its
material equipment, the board of trustees holding 'title to its property and
clothed with many responsibilities, the faculty, which is charged with the
work of instruction: the student body, for the sake of which the institution
exists, and its alumni, for if these are organized in some way and interested
in its affairs they may greatly aid its work and promote its success, and
should be counted as a very material part of the institution when regarded
as a whole. As with every organism, its healthfulness and efhciency will
depend upon the integrity of its correlated parts. The school exists for its
students, and if these are earnest, ambitious and imbued with the scholarls
instinct, they are, in any of the higher or technical institutions, co-workers
with their instructors, seekers after knowledge and lovers of wisdom, and
not as children who are placed under guardians or driven by taskmasters.
Anything, therefore, that tends to promote solidarity, a true fellowship,
and real community of interests in the student body, is beneficial to its
members and to the institution as a whole. And so fam very glad that
the Senior Class in this school has decided to issue an f'Annual H such as is
published by the students in many colleges. The action is spontaneous, and,
being so, is indicative of a real interest in the life and work of the school
and a desire to promote and maintain a proper class feeling and a legitimate
and praiseworthy college spirit. There is a "college spirit 'i which is
childish in its essence and harmful, rather than helpful, in its ends and aims.
If college pride or class feeling magnines that which is unimportant and
ephemeral, and does not concern itself with the real work ofthe institution
in some essential way, it is misdirected and unlikely to be productive of any
good results. But there are many class activities which are manly and not
childish, and which tend to promote a closer union between student and
teacher, whose aims and interests are identical, if so be they are correctly
understood. An annual like TITHE ALEBIIKIC, while issued by the class, has
a semi-ofhcial status, and should promote a still closer union between the
student body and the teaching staff Such closer union being from every
point of view desirable in institutions like schools of pharmacy, the work of
which is essentially practical, rather than disciplinary, preparatory or
cultural, the Faculty of the Albany College of Pharmacy cordially approve
this new undertaking and wish it abundant and lasting success.
Amo-ng the fanciful conceits of the alchemists which have survived in
our latter-day scientihc terminology was this,- that the volatile part
evolved, as by heat, from material substances, was the essence or spirit of
such substance. "All bodies," says Bacon, Uhave spirits and pneumatical
parts within them." Such terms as " spirit of wine " survive, and it was
in retorts or alembfcs that the separation of the ethereal part was effected.
The vessel is obsolete, but the name " alembic 'l remains, and it has passed
into literature typifying that which refines and frees the rarer and essential
from the grosser and material substance. And so we think the name chosen
for this publication to be suggestive of the true aim of all education, which
is the separation of the higher from the lower, the exaltation of the spirit,
and a rehning that is real and substantial, and not specious or delusive like
an external polish, which, being superficial, merely may deceive for a time,
but cannot long endure.

A College of Pharmacy is supposed to educate its students in all that
pertains to the care, handling, preparing and dispensing of drugs and medi-
cines, on the orders and prescriptions of physicians, and to supplying the
public with such of these agents as maybe necessary for their comfort and
use, without the advice of a physician.
The calling of a pharmacist differs from all other pursuits in iwhich men
engage. The substances in which he deals are potent for good or injury.
Many of the most valuable medicines are active poisons, when improperly
used, and it is necessary for the protection of the public that a knowledge
of these agents be obtained.
This education includes Chemistry, the science of the composition of
matter, Pharmacy, the art of preparing and compounding medicines, and
Materia Medica, that branch of medical study which deals with drugs, their
sources, preparation and uses. These are the major subjects which the
student must thoroughly comprehend. There are minor subjects, some
knowledge of which is necessary. These are Physics, the study of the laws
and phenomena of nature, but especially of forces and the general properties
of matter, botany, the science of plantsg Physiology, the science which treats
of the functions of living organisms, pharmaceutical arithmetic, relating
mainly to percentage and proportion, pharmaceutical latin, relating to the
written prescription, pharmaceutical jurisprudence, relating to the laws gov-
erning the conducting of pharmaciesg and now a knowledge of business
methods. These are minor subjects, but this does not mean that they are
of little value, only that they are of less value than the major subjects.
T Of these subjects, organic Materia Medica and Botany seem to be the
least attractive to students. 'The reason for this apparent lack of interest
may possibly lie in the fact that the substances in these two courses are
familiar to everyone, they are in daily contact with them and why should
they not know all about them? '
This is a false conception of these agents. I have yet to know of a
student who honestly begins investigation along these lines, who does not
soon become intensely interested in roots, rhizomes, barks, leaves, seeds and
plants. An examination of phytolacca shows a formation of its cellular and
fibrous tissues similar to and yet decidedly different from pareira. The
leaf of digitalis. so very distinctive in its wooly surface and boldness of its
framework, valerian and veratrum, both rhizomes and rootlets, of almost
equal size and shape and color, yet with distinctions enough to at once
The plant world is possessed of life and activity, is constructed in
accordance with fixed laws, is capable of producing only its kind, each plant
retaining its essential characteristics and capable of being classified just as
exactly as the animal kingdom. Wfhy should they not be intensely interest-
ing to all who make a study of them? .
ls it not the way one approaches these subjects that determines their
interesting phase or the opposite? Let one enter upon these courses with
honest and persevering effort and they will soon become as attractive as
other branchesof pharmaceutical education. A. B. H.
As the years have passed, as I have perisisted in my attempt to teach
a minimum of microscopy and pharmacognosy to a maximum of students in
pharmacy, a query has with ever-increasing frequency forced itself to the
front until it has at last occupied the head of the line-and that interro-
gation, that erotem which marks our occasional meetings, says with ever-
increasing emphasis- " is it worth while? "
Annually Qwith the addition of a few " hardy perennials "Q I see before
me a goodly class of sensible young people, a majority of them direct from
the high school, who have come to our school avowedly to make preparation
for their life work. So-me of these earning the money themselves, either in
whole or in part, to pay for their tuition, others at the cost of more or less
sacrifice on the part of parents or friends. Year by year is enacted the
selfsame tragedy, or, so far as microscopy is concerned, the same old comedy
by a hundred or more intelligent young people who with but a few excep-
tions seem to care for but little ibut " getting byf' of escaping as easily as
possible from the censorious teacher who has been set over them.
Failing to realize that the mediocre is the enemy of the best, that the
world is crowded with individuals whose whole life is one steady round of
" getting byg " that in every walk in life the majority of persons manage to
satisfy themselves with doing work that will enable them to " get by,', with
those who are content if their work vvill let them draw their salaries and
not be dropped from the pay roll, that the great successes in this life are as
a rule the result of earnest, honest effort rather than the possession of genius,
they are satisned to be far less than they could or ought to be.
In part the reason is the spirit of the times, for it must be confessed
that to a degree this same concept is prevalent in almost every walk in lifeg
in part to the system of education now popular, which is content with the
student's " passing " many courses of which he knows but little or nothing
when he has finished, a system which wastes his time over 'isms and lologies,
few of which he is ever likely to use and finally graduates him unable to
spell, scarcely able to write and totally unfamiliar with " the rule of three,"
and in part it is not unlikely to the inadequacies of the instructor himself.
That my words may not seem to you to be merely my habit of mind,
let me quote in closing the words of the head of one of the most famous
" prep " schools in this country, " The boy who starts in at a ' prep' school
or anywhere else with a policy of ' getting by 3 will have a lot of reforming
to do if ever he gets where he ought to go. ' Getting by' stands at one
extremeg Emerson's dictum ' Hitch your wagon to a star' stands at the
S. L. D.
The Class of Nineteen Sixteen
presents this hook to those whose
interests and sympathies are closely
connected with the experiences
lgiatnrg nf Gilman nf IEIIE
"Hello, there! Have a good summer?" 'I Where were you work-
ing? " " 'Where are you rooming? " Such were the remarks heard around
the Albany College of Pharmacy on the twenty-eighth day of September,
nineteen hundred and nfteen. Eagle street rang with the sound of students'
feet, and the residents awoke from their slumber to another winter of noise
and hastening figures.
Un this great day the Seniors. returning from their summer practice,
greeted each other hilariously and were greatly envied by the quiet, fresh
new juniors who stood one side and looked jealously on, as jokes and
summer experiences were told among the upper classmen.
Over in one corner stood a long, lank youth, with dark hair and eyes,
bearing a certain dignined air and look which - well, he has lived up to that
air and look, for he is our Valedictorian. " Polly " was always quiet and
dignihed, although the boys do say he isn't always so quiet. This year he
has played on our basketball team and, as always, ranked well.
Near the door, sitting up on that shelf known to all because it was here
where "Doc" Huested placed all our checks, bills and love letters, were
three girls. They looked very timid and retiring. Time has shown us,
however, that they were not so, but were overcome by the aged and learned
Seniors. Two were sisters and the other-our beloved " Bill Taft."
This, our first day at college, was spent in enrolling and becoming
acquainted with rooms, boarding houses and fellow students. In the even-
ing " Opening " took place, and the juniors were very noticeable by their
presence and the Seniors by their absence that first night. Dr. Tucker
welcomed the old and new students back, and Dr. Huested and Prof. Dillen-
back spoke to us also. Our Microscopy teacher, Dr. Dawes, gave a very
interesting talk which was rather misleading to us poor juniors, for he gave
us the impression that we were going to have a wonderful time in his classes.
VVe did-yes, if we did just exactly as he told us. VVe certainly were a
trial to him. A man we all grew to respect was present, but as usual said
little. This was always his wayg still he accomplished a great deal and
was always a friend indeed whenever one was in need of an advisor.
Taken all in all, our nrst day at college was a success, and the next day
we took up the regular work of the college and welcomed the new men who
kept coming throughout the week. " Betty" Noonan arrived our first day
of real school and was some addition to the class. Don't you think so,
Armstrong, even if she does steal your towels in Lab? Ruby Lupton
arrived later on from a small town which she says " doubles its size in
summer." VVe wish to ask Ruby how large it is in winter.
Cn October 30th we organized, and on November 5th elected the follow-
ing officers: Munger, President, Quinlan, First Vice-President, Murphy,
Second Vice-President, Cunningham, Secretary, and Scott, Treasurer.
Before Christmas the meetings were devoted to our one great social event
of the year, The Dance! It was held at The Ten Eyck, and surely was
some dance. ,lust before Christmas we had our much dreaded midyears.
They were hard, but on returning from our good times very few were
disappointed in the results, and we went on from day to day enjoying life
and wading through Inorganic Chemistry and the rest of our studies. Many
of us shook and trembled on entering the domain of Dr. Dawes, not know-
ing what was to come forth, yet hardly daring to cut, others had a fear in
Chemistry Lab., still others were on tenter-hooks in " Math." or Botany.
The Lord gave each one a different mass of gray matter! Prof. Scudder in
Latin was a treat, and his 'K l-log Latin," as he terms Pharmacy Latin, was
not so hard for us to master.
As spring drew near we Juniors grew uneasy and longed for the finals
and summer practice, while the Seniors began to wear strained and worried
looks. The finals were on us at last, and then such a rushing and packing
and hurried medley of good-byes! Wfe were off, hoping that the little notes
we expected during the summer would be assuring.
The months passed all too quickly, and on the twenty-seventh of Sep-
tember we were again back in the old college, renewing acquaintanceships
and settling back in the old routine. All the girls were back, but some of
the boys had stayed out for a year, while others were to join the new Junior
Class. At opening exercises we lived up to tradition because many of us
were noticeable by our absence. '
This year we had Prof. Dillenback with us, and to most of us he
loomed as Atilla. No one ever fell asleep in his lectures, if they did they
didnlt sleep long. l-le made his lectures interesting. with here and there
a touch of dry humor which none of us will forget.
Early in the year the class reorganized and elected the following officers:
Stoetzel, Presidentg Miss Noonan, First Vice-Presidents Murphy. Second
Vice-President, Miss Griffin, Secretary, Smith, Treasurer, Barrett, Marshal,
and Hess, Historian.
Midyears and Christmas vacation hurried along, and we returned to
find our marks posted conspicuously in the hall. Some were disappointed,
but as a whole the class was happy, for Dr. Tucker told us that, taken on
an average, the Junior and Senior marks were the best the college had
produced for years.
Our spirits fell, however, after Prof. Dillenback hurled his midyear
exam at us in February. Only eighteen passed, and the remainder of the
class set frantically to work vowing a wonderful mark in the linal.
But I am ahead of my story, for the .luniors tendered the Seniors a
dance at The Ten Eyck I-lotel in January, and it certainly was a great
success. Many thanks to our under classmates. Another important event
happened before that dreadful quizz. The Class of IQIO decided to launch
forth and edit a class book. ' Indeed, we were growing and broadening out.
After February everyone seemed to settle down to steady grind, and
here and there groups would form in hall, lecture room or library and
Materia Medica, Pharmacy or Chemistry would be the engrossing theme
instead of theaters, dances and various other outside topics. Once in a
while, however, Ruth would break forth and play us a tune on her comb
or sing us a snatch of the latest song hitg 'L VVhit" would imitate our
beloved Faculty, Swain would manage a dance all his own, or, better still,
they would all get started and make a regular racket until, with knowing
smile and kindly word, " Pop H would bring the performance to a close.
'XVe are all sure Charles was glad summer was coming, for to him
winters meant shoveling snow and coal, sometimes all night long. Cheer
up, Charlie, if you have to shovel so much here perhaps you will be let off
in the next world.
VVell, those examinations were on. Wfe set with wrinkled forehead and
pencil scribbling, stopping now and then to scratch our heads and gaze
earnestly out of the window, hoping to see the answer there, we gathered
in excited groups outside the examination room door and nearly came to
blows over answers which differed, we studied some more and groaned,
and racked our brains still more until at last they were over. Over, yes,
but the marks! Vtfe waited as patiently as overwrought humans can until
at last the day came along and we found to our joy that we were through
in spite of the seeds, leaves, hydrocarbons, pills, aleurone grains and
The great day arrived at last and a new batch of pill rollers were sent
forth into the world to kill or cure.

" Danby "
Middletown High School
It is hard to hnd words to express our
feelings toward Danby. Since he entered
the Albany College of Pharmacy his course
has been marked by his active interest in
all college affairs and his earnest pursuit of
his studies. However, we have noticed a
change in him of lateg he has been having
considerable trouble with a misplaced eye-
brow. In fact, the thing has developed so
that it is even noticeable in his picture. lt
grieves us very much, too, for we cannot
understand why Dauby ever should allow
anything like that to mar his otherwise
handsome face. WVe have been hearing
rumors, too, of late, about a little girl back
in Middletown who has been watching
Dauby's work at school 'with an anxious
and admiring eye. On this subject we have
been unable to get Danby to commit him-
self, but feel certain that he intends to be-
come a benedict soon after college closes.
Wfe -congratulate you, Danby, and wish you
the best of success.

macy College. Jimmie in his Junior year
was very conscientious and studied hard,
and in consequence had his work littingly
rewarded by being an honor man, It was
then he decided to ease up on the studying
and see more of life. To accomplish this
he has divided his course into three years.
He has not, however, forgotten how to study
as "Jim" is " right there " in exams.
We can truthfully say that without Jimmie
college life would be rather dull. WVe all

his college career. Perhaps we should say
he was on his way to college as he had not
yet enrolled on the college register. How-
ever, "Swan" landed in Albany and was
soon a full fledged student at A. C. P.
l'Ken,' is certainly a fortunate boy. Last
year he had the pleasure of spending his
Xmas vacation at the Albany City Hospital,
and during his visit there had his ap-
pendix removed. Of course, the nurses
fairly adored him and we understand that
there is one particular young lady that Ken-
neth would rather let take care of him than
anyone else. VVhat it is all going to come
to time only can tell, but when Kenneth
gets that drug store up at North Creek he
will probably tell us all about it. However,
we feel quite certain that with all his other
duties, Kenneth will find time once in a
while to recall the happy days spent at
the Albany Pharmacy College.

Wie believe without a doubt that she is
the happiest girl in the land. Always with
a smile and ever ready to help along a
good joke. Not bashful by any means. Oh,
no! " You wouldn't want us to think so,

JAY ROSSMAN TIFFANY
Hudson, N. Y.
Hudson High School
After "Tiff" becomes a.millionaire he
expects to present the college with a new
laboratory building. Perhaps, though, that
pretty little wife will have something to
say about that, 'tTiff." "Tiff" is equipped
with a good amount of common sense and
an ever-ready tongue, which latter he some-
times exercises during lectures, mu-ch to
his own or the professorls discomliture, as
the case may be. He is a member of our
"Upstairs Smoking Club," the password of
which is " XVho's got a cigarette? "4 "Tiff "
is a great chemistry student, although we
sometimes suspect that he has something
to do with certain quaint odors developed
in the chemistry laboratory. We all wish
"Tiffany Sz Co." great success.

Yes, "lVhit" is an optimist, which fact
every one admits. Occasionally, as was
once the case in his Junior year, his opti-
mism outran the bounds prescribed for such
things and came under the watchful and
stern eye of the Dean, with a result some-
what contrary to "lVhit's" doctrine.
"Whit" as an imitatoi' has no equal in
college, and, in the case of pharmacy fail-
ing to earn him a livelihood, he can always
fall back on his acting abilities. "XNhere

is the town "XfVhit,' comes from. Recom-
mendation enough for anyone, is our

Ralph has left no stone unturned in his
quest of pharmaceutical knowledge. Pos-
sessed ot very good reasoning power, he
has improved his time while in the Phar-
macy College. It is stated on authority
that Ralph has a tendency toward the gayer
side of lite, but we admit the contrast be-
tween Tannersville and the Capital City is
great. This may account for this tendency.
ln some ca-ses we lind that the " Lord is not
with us," but eventually we expect to see
Ralph installed as manager of Rilcer CQ

" Bill " hails from that far-off hamlet where the Norwich Pharmacal Company
holds sway, and, according to " Bills " tell, produces the Unguentine which supplys all
the civilized world with the jirxt aid for bztwis. lt was here that hVilliam became
imbued with the idea of a Ph.G. course followed by a Phf. The latter is to follow
shortly, once the former is obtained. At present " Bill " is developing a secret process
for the manufacture of aniline dyes. Nllhile on the subject of his merits, " Bill " is a
lady killer and does like to look well. ln consequence the mirror suffers. l-low about

Albany, N. Y.
Albany High School
" Fink" is one of the best natured boys we have in our class. Always has a smile
for everyone. Lester is quite a singer, too, and it is not unfrequently that he enter-
tains the whole class with some new popular song. Lester is quite popular with the
ladies and of late has attended a number of dances. 'iFink" says these leap year
parties are certainly line, and he does not see why February cannot just as well have
twenty-nine days every year. He really is a very good dancer, and we can readily
understand why he is in such demand. Xhfe are somewhat surprised to hear that
"Fink'f is a frequent visitor at the different cabarets about town. VVe are sorry to
hear such reports, and if they are true we shall have to reprove Lester for his mis-
conduct. But with all his faults we all like him, and hope he will enjoy many years
of the popularity he has attained. lfVe can easily see that UFink" was cut out for the
high life he loves, and do not understand why he ever chose Pharmacy for a profession.

"Red," a good-natured boy, who clairnsihis residence at Rensselaer, although this
town has not yet been located by prominent geographers. Yes, we admit that john is
the possessor of a species of hair, which he terms " Sanguinara blonde," and is some-
what in unison with his occasional outbursts of humor. A' Red " never smokes
cigarettes. .'VVhen he is Hush he carries a pocket full of Figaros. He is also a great
lover of pretty ties, as seen by the display.

Thcre's a face in dear old Ballston that we never fail to see,
The face is a familiar one, we calluit Ed Leahy,
Now, Edward Francis Leahy is a quiet, modest chap,
Who never thinks of shooting you a crooked game of crap
At cards he is a wonder, boys! you ought to see him play-
"Iake" Epstein is the only man that stands in Eddie's way.
You say he has some brains, dear me, of that there is no doubt
For the baldness on that square-cut dome brings the fatal spot right out.

And he'll carry off all prizes-if the rest of us move out!
ARTHUR E. SEITZINGER,

Hudson Falls High School
" Seitf' so called and known by all the members of his class, has proven himself
a model young man in every instance during his college career. Like Solomon of
old he has found happiness in his search for wisdom and we would not be surprised,
if, in the near future, he established a set of rules and principles for the playing of
"Pinochle." Outside of his excellence in the art of understanding chemistry, he has
attained great renown as a musician, so we understand from the people on Jay street.
HAROLD M. SEITZINGER,

Hudson Falls High School .
"'Zip' of the North Country," is the title of a book which we will all soon enjoy
as coming from this member of the illustrious Class of 1916, A. C. P. Being second
to none as an end man in a minstrel show, he has gained many successes in the
theatrical world. His triumphs as a banjo player and his diversion of speech, has
made him noted, as no other person can ever hope to attain.

" Smity" was born with an unlimited capacity for head work, therefore, accord-
ing to one of the prime tests, he is a genius. ln Pharmacy he has shown his ability
and achieved a good record, being one of the honorary members of the junior Class.
George is a very sedate young man, but occasionally wears a smile, and, judging from
the area it covers, we surmise that he uses a hair brush to clean his teeth. He is
from " Missouri," and we expect great things from him in the future.
NORMAN E. WATERS,

" Hank "
Rensselaer High School
Here we have with us one of Rensselaer's promising citizens, who without a doubt
will "speak his piece " with little bashfulness. No. " Hank " isn't bashful by any
meansg we'll admit it and we are slightly inclined to think he has felt "Cupid's
arrow,'l as often we hear of U Hanks " being " out for the evening." Wlhen it comes
to recitations "Hank" comes out with flying colors, but occasionally, when deep in
thought, statistics show " Hank " is inclined to shorten his nnger nails by means
other than a lile or pen knife. But who will not admit " Hank " isnlt on the square,
strictly so, for a squarer lad never rolled a pill. And l'Hank's" ability as a pill-
roller needn't be questioned. But Henry's favorite stunt is doing double work in
Chem. Lab. Wfe know he likes it and is sorry this is only a short year. But all in all,
we appreciate the classmate we have in " Hank " Wfaters and earnestly believe that
success will be his for he is deserving of it. So here's luck, " Hank." V Best wishes for
a prosperous future. ' . -l

"Van" is some basketball player. It is even said that at the age of two years he
would rather play with a small basketball than any other toy his mother could buy
him. Inasmuch as " Van " travels about the country quite a bit, we cannot say in
what town the future 'tMrs. Van" is located. but as a suggestion we might say
that " Van " goes to Florida every summer. "Van,s " ability to do two things at one
time is demonstrated by the accuracy with which he jots down lecture notes while
reading the morning paper. "Van" certainly has some trouble getting to the first
lecflttgelnilornings, but then, who ever heard of the Hudson trains running according to

JOHN HOWARD PALMER,
New York City.
Morris High School
John first showed signs of life in New York City and no one has ever accused him
of being a dead one since. He certainly does like a good story and it is better than a
circus to hear John laugh. Wfhen Luff and Palmer go out together we really fear for
the result of the partnership. Be careful of the ladies, "lack," for a dark lady is
predestined to cross your path and rob you of your single bliss. 'fIack" says he is
going to work this summer, but only in a town where a great many pretty girls reside.

The history of our class is, no doubt, like the history of all junior
Classes in a great many respects. Some of us came here, perhaps, because
our ancestors dids some of us because many of our friends are graduates
of A. C. P., some of us because our fathers before us were druggists or
pharmacists, but all of us came here from choice of profession.
The majority of us were entire strangers to each other, but as the
first semester came to a close we were quite well acquainted and class
officers had been elected. As in all elections there was quite a bit of feeling
and the following officers were elected: Mr. XN'endsley, President, Mr.
Barton, Vice-President, Miss Naumauf, Secretary, Mr. Lindsay, Treasurer.
Shortly after the midyears a committee was appointed for the animal
Pharmacy Ball. Mr. Lossa was appointed chairman with Messrs. Barton,
Wlright, Hoffman and Galloway to assist. The dance was held in the
Pink Room of the Ten Eyck Hotel, Zita's Orchestra furnishing the music.
To the Class of 1917 belongs the credit of giving the best Pharmacy Ball in
VVe are now near the close of our first year, half way to the goal which
we all hope to win. In this short time we have, in our poor way, tried to
master the perplexing problems of up-to-date Pharmacy and Chemistry,
some of us to a greater extent than others, but all of us have learned the
one great lesson, namely-to love our Alma Mater.

After spending the summer vacation at our homes, we came back to
resume our work and to make our last year in college as successful and
Jrohtable as Jossible, both for ourselves and our cha ter.
On the evening of November 16, 1915, Beta Delta entertained the
members of the junior Class at a " smoker." The class was well represented
and all expressed themselves as having passed a very enjoyable evening.
Prof. Wfilliam A. Larkin. one of our facultate members, spoke on " The
Benefits Derived from Fraternalismf' All were impressed by the Profes-
sor's earnest and direct address. The Social Committee, consisting of
Brothers Newton, Carter, Stillson and Hess, were responsible for the success
of the evening's entertainment. Punch, cigars and cigarettes were enjoyed.
Many events of note have taken place during the year, and now, as THE
.FXLEMBIC goes to press, arrangements are in progress for our annual banquet,
which is to be held March 20 at Stanwix Hall, celebrating the sixth anni-
versary of Beta Delta. As this is the crowning event of the year, we are
all striving to make this the best ever.
As the college year draws to a close the many good times enjoyed as
brothers of Kappa Psi are brought more clearly to mind. These events will
always remain bright in our memory.
Congratulations are to be offered the brothers for the good work done
during the year and their earnest support of Beta Delta. All unite in wishing
Beta Delta and its members a very successful future.
