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 IO 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.

V Z 16 LECTURE HAALL F5112 Qlullegr 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 differentiate them. I8 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. 19 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 other." S. L. D. ml? .l I 'll dba 20 ew' awww" The Class of Nineteen Sixteen presents this hook to those whose interests and sympathies are closely connected with the experiences herein portrayed. Mwmmm 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 23 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. 24 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 formulae. The great day arrived at last and a new batch of pill rollers were sent forth into the world to kill or cure. M. R.

ARMSTRONG, Iillf Middletown, N. Y. " 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. EDGAR DUSENBURY BARRETT, Kill Windso1', N. Y.

Deak belongs to the Married Men's Club and gets a letter from the ideal of his dreams about three times a week. He is a great lover of those few extra winks of sleep in the morning, and if he is not detained usually reaches that " shrine of each chemist's devotion" in time for the afternoon session "Deak" is a prime favorite with the ladies, who fall in love with him at First sight. He is a good student and we wish him a bright future. 32 GEORGE EDWARD BONNER, Kill Luzerne, N. Y. " George " Luzerne High School Pin Committee C23 George is one of our northern members who favors us with his presence for the purpose of gaining a little technical knowl- edge and at the same time keep a watch on his brother. George takes life, and espe- cially Pharmacy, very seriously. On 21 recent State Board examination for Drug- gist he first tried the examination for Phar- macist, and then, on hnding his mistake, wrote out the Druggist exam. Such merit certainly deserves reward. Even though George does like a little nap occasionally he has the making of a very efhcicnt Phar- macist. JAMES HENRY BONNER, KXI1 Luzerne, N. Y. " Jimmie U Luzerne High School Honor Roll CID Jimmie, known to his intimates by many aliases, is one of the lights of the Phar- 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 unite in wishing Jimmie good luck in all his undertakings. 33 CLIFFORD PATTON COLLINS, KKI1 Troy, N. Y.

A look at his face at once reveals a man of determination and seriousness, and we feel assured he will make zu. great success of his chosen profession, Pharmacy. Especially are we sure of this since he has been seen walking on the East Side of Troy with his employer's daughter. Clifford has always kept pegging away at his studies and inci- dentally at having a good time. He is a member of the Troy bunch and can be found with Geary and Nlfhitford when wanted. HORACE MITCHELL CARTER, KXII Salisbury, Vt. . " Nick N Troy Conference Academy, Poultney, Vt. Alembic C2j . Horace is a cute little fellow, with an abnormal fondness for highly colored neck- ties. He hails from the "Green Mountain " country and bids well to rival in renown his famous Countryman, Ethan Allen. Horace is also a member of the Married Men's Club and is a credit to that organ- ization. Carter has a splendid college record and is one of the most persistent members of the class. W'e believe that in him the profession will lincl a thoughtful and loyal worker. 34' FRANCIS DE SALES CONROY, Kilf Norwich, N. Y.

One day in class Joe was asked by the professor in charge if he was not related to General De Lafayette, but the "Marquis" quietly denied any knowledge of such relationship.

Now, don't for one instant imagine that " Slim " is a dead one, for that is far from true, and any of the boys will deny that fact emphatically. He is quite a pool shark and many are the stinging defeats he has indicted on some of the young cue artists of this institution.

"Sister Graney" " Lolo " I-Ioosick Falls High School X-Ve Hrst met this charming girl on Sep- tember 27, 1914, and she and her sister have helped to brighten many a dull school hour during the two years' course. Loretta is a light-hearted, winning girl, a few inches shorter than her kid sister. She was always popular with the opposite sex, and wher- ever a crowd collected you would hncl Loretta the center of attraction. Do not think for a moment that she neglected her studiesg indeed, she did not, but made a Very line showing when it came to exams. During her Senior year she has been work- ing nights and Saturdays in a certain Troy store, where it is said they could not get along without her. Wfe hope that 'A Suc- cess " will be her portion, and that she and her sister Ethel will own a store of their own some day in the near future. V i SARAH ETHEL GRANEY Hoosick Falls, N. Y.

She is taller than her sister and seems much quieter and more dignilied, although they do say when she once gets started it is hard to stop her, She and a certain fraternity man are usually not far apart during school hours, and such a commotion as sometimes arises! Beware, Newt, Ethel says she cannot keep a tire in a store, so I fear. you would go cold and empty quite often. Ethel and her sister lived with their sister in Troy while at college, and they seemed to enjoy the trip back and forth each day, llfe wonder what could have been the attraction.

"Sis" takes naturally to this instruction business because she was a " school marm " before sne entered upon the profession of Pharmacy. She is also possessed of great ability as an orator, and her intimate friends say that Cicero or T. R. cannot be- gin where she leaves off. Wfe all agree that Marguerite deserves great credit for the manner in which she explains the pro- found mysteries of "Caspari." She is some pugilist when it comes to chastising classmates. Ask a certain one of our frat boys. We all have to hand it to " Sis" for being our hard working, energetic class- mate, and we are proud to boast of having her as a member of the Class of 1916.

As a student, quality has made his work of most value. His geniality and willingness to help others have made him a most valuable friend to the less fortu- nate, as well as a valuable classmate. XVe would not forget that Herschel has a voice and belongs to the quartet of Kappa Psi which help to' make night hideous at times for the residents of Hudson avenue near No. 188.

Later she thought she would like to finish her course, so joined our class in September, 1914, and decided to take a three-year course. Wfe certainly were a lucky bunch, for she was always ready to advise us, and it was good common sense which she handed out impartially to one and all. lhfe are sorry she is staying another year, but the Juniors should feel highly elated to think that they will have her CHESTER KIMMER JONES, Canajoharie, N.

Of course, he has a habit of being late for lectures, but this is over- come by hard study and application to books.

" Duke " or " Curley," as he is called, is one of our brightest classmates: he has a way of absorbing knowledge without the hard study which others find such a task. He is conspicuous for the manner in which he cults the first lectures in the morning. It has been said that if George was there in the morning it was a sure sign that we would have a vacation of one hour, Qdue to the absence of the instructorJ. George is deeply in love, as the many letters which he sends to Johnstown show. He also makes it a point to go home every week, and many are the bulky letters he receives during his short stay in Albany. Neverthe- less, we are extremely proud of this light- hearted classmate, and wish him many years of success in his chosen profession and much happiness in his future home. 43 RUBY MAE LUPTON, Roscoe, N.

Yes, when Ruby decided to matriculate at the Albany College of Pharmacy it was along in June, 1914, and when she received word her credentials were accepted her summer hat was out of style. Ruby says the cause of this was due to the building of the new post ofhce and general store in her home village, consequently slowing the R. F. D. mails. Nevertheless, when " Rube " did join us she became a favorite of all her class- mates, especially one, who confesses to he- long to the Married Men's Club, but seems to shine around Ruby considerably.

H Bill " Norwich High School " 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 it, "Bill?l' Notwitlistanding, "Bill" is a good mixer and it is our wish that he is as successful in his Ph.C. course as he has been thus far in his Ph.G. LESTER FINKLESTEIN, Albany, N. Y. "Fink" 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. JOHN W1LsoN KING, Rensselaer, N. Y. lf 7, Rensselaer High School "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. 53 EDWARD FRANCIS LEAHY, Ballston, N. Y. u n Ballston High School 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. Now let's cut out the kidding, for Ed's a good old scout And he'll carry off all prizes-if the rest of us move out! ARTHUR E. SEITZINGER, Hudson Falls, N. Y. ll H 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, N. Y. if YJ 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. ' GEORGE JOSEPH SMITH, Ellenville, N. Y. . cl 1: 7 Ellenville High School " 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. ' 54 NORMAN E. WATERS, Rensselaer, N. Y. " 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 RAYMOND CORNELIUS VAN VLIET, Hudson, N. Y. rr Xfan rr Hudson High School "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 sc e u e. JOHN HOWARD PALMER, New York City. If 7, 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. XVhen you discover the town let us in on it, won't you, "Iack?

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 several years. 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.

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. 69 Aiaanriatinn nf Thr Alumni nf the Alhang Qlnllrgn uf Hharmarg This association was organized March 5, 1883.
