HE Class of 1924 takes pleasure in presenting to all who are interested in
the Albany College of Pharmacy, this volume,-the ALEM HIC-IIJAPMAKON.
The Board of Editors have sought in this publication to unite the past with the
present, even in the name of the book. So we have taken one part of the name
from the year-books of the past and the other from the name chosen by the
Class of 1923. Thus do we attempt to mould together the traditions and pre-
cedents of the past with the modernness and the spirit of advance as evidenced
in the present. A
Alembic,-the name from the past. No better definition of this term could
be obtained than that which Dean Tucker once gave. To him must be given
the credit for such an adaptable expression of an ideal.
"Among the fanciful conceits of the alchemists which have survived in our
latter-day scientific 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, 'have spirits and pneumatical parts within them., Such
terms as ' spirit of wine ' survive, and it was in reforts or alembics that the separa-
tion of the ethereal part was affected. The vessel is obsolete, but the name
'alembic' 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 he 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 refining 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 endure."
QDAPMAKON,-the name from the present. This word comes from the
Greek-meaning drug, medicine, potion or charm. Hence the suitability of the
word to this, our profession. Soon, we of the Class of 1924 will be out in the
World doing our part in the standard-carrying of our profession. May we, as
did the Greeks of old, from whom we have chosen a name, seek ever to excel
and to become greater successes in our daily lives, through the conscientious pur-
suit of knowledge and the 'treatment we accord our fellow men.
May these two words, giving name to our book, ever remind us of our
duties as pharmacists, and of the friends we made while here at our Alma lXlafer.

N September, l922, a rather cosmopolitan mass assembled to begin a course in
pharmacy. But now as the Spring of 1924 draws near we realize that the
end of our course is rapidly approa.ching and we can not help but look back and
slowly review the many happenings, some of which have given us great pleasure,
while others have, perhaps, had a tinge of the opposite emotion. The many
dances, basketball games, " gyms," " labs," all have transmitted to us their par-
ticular joys. A
Shortly after the opening of college the class was organized and the following
officers were elected for the junior year: President, Mr. R. G. Ehrmann, First
Vice-President, Mr. H. Browng Second Vice-President, Mr. S. Carlatg Secre-
tary, Miss P. Stafford, Treasurer, Mr. A. L. Barnum, Reporter, Miss E. Shields,
Historian, Miss E. M. Gray, Cheer Leaders, Mr. Harrison, Mr. janaro.
Un October twentieth the juniors were entertained by the Seniors with a
dance at the Aurania Club. This was our first social event and it proved to be
a great success. A few weeks later the juniors entertained the Seniors with a
dance at the Yacht Club, which proved to be quite as successful.
The Friday before the Christmas holidays the students were entertained
by the Faculty and Trustees at Eastern Star Hall. In the afternoon the stu-
dents were entertained by a musical program, consisting of a piano solo by Miss
M. Eagle, one of the talented juniors, a quartette, composed of Seniors and the
college orchestra. Both Mr. William Gibson and Mr. George B. Evans addressed
the students. The distribution of gifts was the next thing on the program, and
then the fun bejan! The remainder of the afternoon was spent in dancing.
A delightful luncheon was served, which surely everyone enjoyed, for there
were oodles of sandwiches, coffee, ice cream and cake, not to mention the cakes
sent by the fraternities. In the early part of the evening the Seniors conducted
a. mock trial. which was followed by an informal dance.
During the month of january the fraternities commenced taking in their
new members. VVe all became interested watching for straw hats and lanterns,
and brown derbys. We can only give our pity to the next ones.
The most important social event of the year was thejunior Prom. This
also proved to be the most successful for it was perfection in every detail.
Then finally arrived junior night, that night of nights, when we were pro-
claimed Seniors. The last event of the year was an Alumni Dance held at Wol-
fert's Roost and here our farewells were said with a hidden hope that September
would soon arrive and bring us all back to enjoy another year of good friendship.
September soon appeared again on the calendar which meant that we had
returned to college. Then after the customary handshakes we began to settle
down to, what seems to most of us, a year of hard work,
The first social event of the year was a dance given by the Seniors to the
juniors at Vincentian Hall. This was our first chance to become acquainted
with the Juniors. If you would like to know the results ask " Murph."
On December sixth the Juniors entertained the Seniors with a semi-formal
dance at the Ten Eyck. Eddieis Melody Boys furnished the music which perhaps
made the dance such a success but nevertheless the Juniors certainly are to be
congratulated on their success.
Qur Christmas party was held at Vincentian Hall on December thirteenth.
The first part of the evening was devoted to a program, musical, etc., furnished
by the talented Juniors and Seniors. From ten to one dancing was enjoyed.
January found us all back from our vacation quite ready to take up the
good work again.
Throughout january there were plenty of fraternity dances and many basket-
ball games followed by dancinq. February came with its most important prom.
Again we must congratulate the Juniors on their success at dances for this one
proved to be ideal.
March came, and with it the inter-fraternity dance and the Senior class
dance, both of which had a success of their own.
Then graduation day, that day when we are labeled Ph.G.'s and start out into
the world always remembering the good times in A. C. P.
Then the Alumni dance at Wolfert's Roost. The goodabyes will be of a
different type this year, for to most of us iiit will be good-bye forever.

HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 1925
S I walked through the wilderness of this world, I lighted on a certain place
where was a den, and la.id me down in that place to sleep, and as I slept
I dreamed a dream. I dreamed, and behold, I saw a man with a great pile of
books in his hands. And I saw him open a book and read therein, and, as he
rea.d, he wept and trembled because -of his ignorance. His name was Twenty-five
and he was from the city of Ignorance. Andi lo! as he read, a man named Dean
asked him why he wept. Then said he, " Because my wits show exceeding
lack." Then said Dean, " If this be thy condition, why standeth thou still? Take
thou this broad road that lea.deth to the fair city of Knowledge, wherein you
will find the Albany College of Pharmacy."
And so he ad'dressed himself to his journey.
Now the way to the city of Knowledge led straight through the valley o-f the
shadow of Chemistry. And I beheld in my dream that on the right was the
Ditch of Laws and Theories and on the left was a dangerous Quag of Elements
and Compounds. VVhen Twenty-five sought to shun the ditch on the one hand,
he was ready to tip over into -the mire on the other. Thus hc went on, and I
heard him sigh bitterly. About the midst of this valley I perceived the mouth
of Lab to be. "Now," thought Twenty-five, " what shall I do?" Ever and
anon the flame and smoke would belch forth in such abundance, with sparks
and hideous noises, that he was forced to put up his Bunsen Burner and betake
himself another weapon called Lab-Manual.
Then I saw in my dream that the highway was fenced on either side' by
walls called Lessons Prepared, and the way was exceedingly narrow. Twenty-
five, being somewhat heedless, fell into a slough called the Slough of Botany and
Histology, wherein dwelt Fucus Vesiculosus, Angiosperms, and Protococcus.
Here he wallowed for a time until a mighty Microscope did pull him out and
start him on his Way.
As Twenty-five went on apace he came to a steep hill and the hill was called
Inorganic Chemistry. Here he wen-t slowly and stumbled often on the rocks of
Equations, Proportions and Valence. Looking narrowly before him, he espied
two fierce lions in the way, named Pharmacy, with his mortar and pestle, and
Mathematics, with his Weights and measures. He went forward trembling and
did quake and sweat for fear, for he heard them roar de-fiance to the unwary.
But stealthily he slipped past their open jaws. VVhence did Twenty-five next
come to a broad field called Ridgefield Park. On its green did he frolic in broad
and high jumps, basketball throws, and baseball game. And in the latter, did
Twenty-live stretch and strain his mighty sinews until he did triumphantly carry
off the prize.
Soon there came a period of chaos for Twenty-five. The troubled waters
of the mighty Styx Howed on until dammed by the class election, whereby:
MR. MOIR P. TANNER . . . President
MR. EDWIN F. BOYLAN . . . Vice-President
MR. FREDERICK W. WELCH . . Second Vice-President
MR. ANTHONY J. LANCE . . . . Treasurer
MRS. MARION B. YOUNG . Secretary
MISS ANNA D. Mosas . . Historian
MR. WILLIAM J. MCGRATH ...... Reporter
Following the turbulent period Twenty-five tripped the light fantastic at a
gathering in Vincenti-an Institute. Maidens and youths did -trip it as they went
to the tune of the College Orchestra until each needs must refresh himself with
punch. At length, worn out and weary, they did wend their ways homeward.
More sunshine greeted Twenty-five. The Ten Eyck, with its pleasing
atmosphere, cast soft lights on -the graceful forms of many dancing couples.
With much merriment cam-e the holiday season and Twenty-five did rejoice
that soon he would lay aside his books and journey homeward. The Christmas
party, at Vincentian Institute, shortened the slow moving hours.
True Horrows did beset Twenty-five upon his return, but once more did I
see Pleasure sooth the aching head, touching it with the cool fingers of the entic-
ing Junior Prom and applying soft strains of music. Dance programs, favors,
riots of colors and banners fill-ed the ballr-oom. Laughter and smiles were present
everywhere. Here too, did Twenty-five make merry in the dance.
N-ow, I further saw, that betwixt Twenty-five and the gate to the city of
Knowledge was the Valley of Finals, where the foul fiend breathed forth little
blue books. Twenty-five began to despond and looked this way and that, but
no way could he find by which he might escape the fiend. He cried out to his
good friend "Cram," "I sink! " Cram therefore had much to do to keep poor
Twenty-five's head above water. Yea, sometimes he would be quite down and
then he would rise up again. Finally he took courage and so got over safely.
Hereupon he went up to the Hill with ease, and thus entered he into the Kingdom
of the Senior Class.
So I awoke, and alas! 'twas but a dream.

KAPPA PSI FRATERNITY., BETA DELTA CHAPTER
APPA PSI was founded at the Russell Military Academy in New Haven,
Conn., May 30th, 1879, by F. Harvey Smith. It was established on the
basis of an older academic society in which Mr. F. Harvey Smith's father held
membership. The organization was entirely literary in its origin and expanded
into the instituti-ons of Russell Military Academy, Cheshire Military Academy,
I-Iillhouse High School and Yale College.
A goodly number of the members of these chapters entered medical schools
and in 1887 it was decided to discontinue the academic chapters and to continue
as a strictly professional fraternity. "Alpha Chapter," which is the governing
body, was placed first on the new chapter roll. The governing body is also known
as the " Grand Council " which has met annually from 1886 to 1908 and every
two years since then.
Later on, Delta Omicron Alpha Medical Fraternity, an organization founded
in the College of Medicine of Tulane University in New Qrleans in 1907. was
merged with Kappa Psi in 1917. A short time after, Phi Delta Medical Fra-
ternity founded at the Long Island Hospital Medical College was also merged
with the fraternity. I
Now we come to that point in the history of Kappa Psi which no doubt
interests us most.
In the year 1910 a small group of men attending the Albany College of
Pharmacy got together and decided they would form a fraternity with good
fellowship and scholarship as a basis. Accordingly after careful consideration
they selected Kappa Psi, the first word of good will and fellowship, and were
incorporated as Beta Delta Chapter.
Since that time the fraterni-ty has established itself as one if not the foremost
in our school circle. We look with pride upon our record and sincerely believe
that no one will question the statement that some of -the best men who have been
graduated from this no-ble institution, leading not only in scholarship but also
in good fellowship were Kappa, Psi members.
In respect for those members who have graduated it is our duty to carry
on a.nd establish a still more enviable record than that left by them. We -are
proud of the accomplishments of our predecessors, last year's chapter, and it is
our hope and intention of having as successful a year. '
As you now read this edition of the Year Book, we take this opportunity
to lay before you those undertakings already so successfully carried out and
those which we hope to come to pa.ss in the near future.
During the month of Qctober, 1922 Beta Delta Chapter greeted its pledged
members at a smoker or better still, a " get acquainted meeting." Short speeches
were given by many of the active members present advising us as to the way
we should act and carry ourselves during our short stay at the college.
Closely following this event we were again the guests of the fraternity at
an informal dance heldat the Yacht Club.
A few months later on March 14, 1923 the following were elec-ted as officers
for the next fslession: Samuel Legault, Regent, Edwin Simons-on, 'Vice-Regent,
John Brackin, Secretary, Allan Barnum, Treasurer, Joseph Morgan, Historian,
.Edmund Murphy, Chaplain. t
An interfraternity dance, the first affair of its kind in the history of the
college was held on the evening of March 17th. It proved to be and was voted
a big success. ' '
The next important happening was the installation of officers o-n the night of
March 21st, immediately after which the brothers adjourned to the Park Res-
taurant to partake of an excellent luncheon. A
The last dance of the social season a formal affair took place at the Hotel
The biggest and no doubt the most important event of the school year, the
annual banquet, was held on Wednesday evening, May 2, at the Ten Eyck
Hotel. The banqueters were entertained with excellent selections rendered by
Eddie's Melody Boys and with very appropriate and well chosen addresses by
the facultate members present.
On Monday September 24, 1923 the members of the fraternity assembled
for the first time as Seniors. Brother Professor Carter gave us some very
excellent advice concerning the fraternity house. '
0 ,H up Eighty-three
During the whole of the previous year a fraternity house seemed to be the
main topic of conversation and this year our hopes and dreams were realized
when a three-story dwelling located at 50 Jay street was leased for the year by
Beta Delta Chapter.
Probably many 'of you graduate brothers who perchance might read this
article, could recall many a happy hour spent in a Kappa Psi fraternity house
while attending the old A. C. P., but for the benefit of those members who had
not the pleasure of having a house and for those not acquainted with the fra-
ternity, we will endeavor to set before you a few of the many good times enjoyed
by us this year at our home on Jay street.
In the latter part of October our intended pledgees were entertained at a
smoker. Many excellent addresses were given by both pledgees and Kappa
Psi brothers. p
A short time after we held our first ladies' night. During the evening those
present entertained themselves at card playing and dancing. Music for dancing
wa.s furnished by Edd,ie's Melody Boys. Excellent refreshments were served
by Madame Ferron. Many of these pleasant evenings were enjoyed throughout
The fraternity house was paid a visit by the Grand Council Deputy Brother
William A. Larkin on November 12, 1924, and we are glad to say using Brother
Professor Larkin's words, " that he found Beta Delta Chapter alive and doing
finely." During the evening many fine addresses were put forth by brothers
both of the active and graduate chapters. Brother Professor Larkin speaking
on the "Philosophy of Life as Applied to Pharmacy ,H Brother Doughty on
" Life in a Fraternity House," Brother Simonson on "Is Pharmacy a Pro-
fession?" The graduate chapter was ably represented by Brothers Earl,
Barnhardt, Eckler and Scharbach who held the individual attention of
their audience with their speeches and talks. Several of these educational and
instructive evenings of talks were held during the year. These reunions have
established a precedent which will mean much for a continuance of Kappa Psi
spirit here on our campus at old A. C. P.
On November 23, 1923 those staying at the fraternity house were the guests
of Brother Mason W. Loomis at a theater party at Harmanus Bleecker Hall.
Without a doubt the most important if not the crowning events of the year,
will take place after this book has gone to press. For the present we can only
enumerate said events remaining on the school program.
On January 14, 1924, a formal dance for Brothers and pledged Members
will be held at the Hampton Hotel.
March 3, 1924 is the date set aside for an informal dance for members only.
On the evening of March 24, 1924 the newly elected officers will be installed
at a luncheon.
Then comes the most anticipated event of the year, the fourteenth annual
banquet to be held at the Ten Eyck Hotel, which, in the eyes of a member of
Kappa Psi, is the apex of the social season. Brother Professor VVilliam A.
Larkin will ofhciate in the capacity of toastmaster. Other speakers on the pro-
gram have not been selected up to this time.
We feel that we have made great strides this year, exerting a beneficial
effect on the policies and activities of the student body and hope that next year
the incoming brothers will do more than we have done in the past. It is our
hope of owning our own chapter house and for greater co-operation and fellow-
ship with the alumni chapter.
Soon we must go our respective ways and let it here be said, we all have
our shoulders to the wheel and watch it go for the good and still higher advance-
ment of our Alma Mater.

JOHN MILTON BRACKIN
On our return from our Christmas we received the sad tidings that Brother
john M. Brackin had passed away. Mr. Brackin had not enjoyed good health
for some time but his death came as a shock to all who knew him. His con-
genial personality and temperament won him many friends. Brother Brackin
was very active both in the affairs of the college and of the fraternity, holding
a very responsible position as secretary of Beta Delta Chapter of Kappa Psi.
After graduating from Pittsfield High School he enlisted in the navy, serving
his country until the close of the World War. Later he attended Tufts Medical
College, transferring to the University of Maine and in September 1922 he entered
the Albany College of Pharmacy. '
Mere words cannot express our sincere sorrow and regret at his untimely
death but he will live forever in the memory of his brothers in Kappa Psi.

A RESUME OF BETA CHAPTER OF RHO PI PHI
BOUT six years ago at the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy a few high-'
spirited men of the- Hebraic Faith banded themselves together to form what
is now known asa the Rho Pi Phi Fraternity. The urgent need of fellowship, of
friendship, and a closer relationship between the men, was the predominating
reason for creating this great national pharmaceutical fraternity.
From a single chapter in 1918 the fraternity has enjoyed a splendid period
of growth until today it is made up of eight chapters located as follows:
1. ALPHA , Massachusetts C. of P., Boston, Mass.
2. BETA . . Albany C. of P., Albany, N. Y.

In nineteen hundred and twenty-one the Jewish students of the Albany
College of Pharmacy seeing the advisability of having such an organization in
this institution formed the Beta Chapter of Rho Pi Phi Fraternity. At the first
meeting of Beta Chapter the eleven charter members elected officers for the year.
Frank Yaguda was a.warded the honor of guiding the destiny of Beta Chapter
for the year by his election to the Presidency. His fellow officers were VVilliam
Jakofsky, Vice-President, Lazarus VVeinstein, Secretary, Louis Jaffe, Treasurerg
joseph Feinburg. Sergeant-at-Arms. Soon afterwards Beta Chapter was highly
honored when the members of the faculty accepted the invitation to become hon-
In the following year Lazarus Weinstein was elected Presidentg Louis Kotok,
Vice-Presidentg' Harry Kantrowitz, Secretary, Michael Auerbach, Treasurer,
Ely Eber, Sergeant-at-Arms. With the arrival of Commencement the chapter
closed its activities for the year.
Now we begin that part of the chapter history with which we are so deeply
concerned. The activities of the Class of 1924 began on one eventful night in
September, 1922, when we were given a monster smoker in the college building.
After many inspiring speeches by the members of the faculty and the alumni
the boys enjoyed smokes and refreshments.
Father Time had not turned the hands of the clock many times when ten
men were initiated into the mysteries of Rho Pi Phi. These initiations will long
be remembered by the Class of 1923-24 and especially Samuel Engel, Samuel
Greenburg, Frank Karninsky, Morris Kessler, Rezeal Kantz, Joseph Nadleman,
Gustave Rothschild, Irving Silbergleit and .lack Zamost. At this time the social
program for the year was planned and many enjoyable events took place.
On the evening of January 16, 1923, the college was beautifully decorated
to receive the members and their friends at the chapter's first informal dance.
Later in the year another dance was held in the college building and it proved
even more successful than the first one.
On March 16 all the fraternities consolidated and held a very successful inter-
fraternity dance at the Aurania Club. This affair was a huge success and will
be repeated every year by the fraternities.
At the annual election which was held at this time Gustave Rothschild was
elected President, Irving Sillbergleit, Vice-President, Samuel Engel, Secretary,
Michael Marcus, Treasurer, and Morris Kessler, Sergeant-at-Arms. i
The annual banquet was very successfully carried out at the Hotel Ten
Eyck on April 30. Profess-or Larkin acted as toastmaster and the other members
of the faculty gave speeches as well as the members of the alumni. This affair
closed the activities for the year.
September found us back in college again. Some of our members had
transferred and others did not return. However, soon the ball was rolling
once more and Rho Pi Phi sponsored many pleasan.t social affairs during the
fall and 'early winter.
After the Christmas holidays our real work began. A dance and several
smokers were successfully carried on. As Spring progressed Rho Pi Phi took
her pant in the Iruterfraternity dance and the Interfraternity banquet,
Several juniors, about this time, were initiated into the mysteries of Rho Pi
Phi. The men chosen rare fully capable of 'carrying out the work that has so
successfully been started here at A. C. P.
As Commencement draws closer we of Beta Chapter begin to more thoroughly
appreciate the friendships and assistance it hazs brought to us.
Each member doing his bit and working to the best of his ability made the
Beta Chapter of the Rho Pi Phi Fraternity as it is today, a link in the great
Rho Pi Phi chain.

.. silon Phi Fraternity, probably the youngest of l'h'n'macy Fraternities
was founded at the Albany College of Pharmacy, in 1917, by a group of students
noted for their leadership in all school activities. l-leading this list were lilrother
George N. Hoffman, at present a leading contributor to pharmaceutical journals.
and Brother Ralph Young, who was valedictorian of his class and, until a few
years ago, a member of the faculty.
The ball had been started and was rolling nicely, but the war proved to he
a stumbling block in the path of progress. lllany of our Brothers answered the
call, with the result that the fraternity was all but broken up.
Conditions remained such, until the year 1921, when Brother Frank A.
Squires, with -the assistance of some twenty students, succeeded in reviving the
fraternity. They Went about the work of reorganization with a vim and vigor
that won for them the admiration of the whole school. Fraternal feeling reigned
Brother Squires, as soon as he was made a member of the faculty, tur11ed
the reins of government to Brother Peter Danzilo. No better man could have
been selected. He received commendaftion from the faculty and his fellow stu-
dents for his presentation of facts, and he was, in all respects, a leading figure
in the school. .
Social functions during our Junior Year began with a smoker, at which
the faculty and the pledgees were the guests. It was the first affair of its kind
ever attempted by any fraternity, and its signal success is verified by the fact
that it's the first affair of all -the fraternities at -the College each year. Soon after
that a dance was held at the College building. This was also a complete success.
Following the mid-years we held our Theatre Party, which was attended by
the members of the faculty and all -the members.
Juniors were welcomed into the fraternity after the mid-years-those who
were willing and capable of holding up the standard of Epsilon Phi. In March,
the new officers were installed. Professor Larkin presided. Harold J. Lynn was
chosen President, Wilfred W. Farrant, Vice-President, Richard V. Moody,
Secretary, Joseph Genovese, Treasurer, Walter A. janaro, Grand Chapter Officer,
Ross F. Barone, Historian, Vito Zinnanti, Sergeant-at-Arms , Kenneth Horn-
beck, Inner Guard, a.nd Leonard Vining, Chaplain. In connection with the instal-
lation of ofhicers, a dance was given.
The crowning event of the year was the Second Annual Banquet, held at the

Hutman spoke on " Distillation, Dilution, Substitution," Professor Larkin gave
a most pleasing talk on " That Reminds Me." President Charles Gibson of
the Board of Trustees of the College also spoke.
During Commencement Week last year, our Grand Chapter was formed and
Brother Danzilo was elected President. This is our first effort at nationalization.
Our vacation over, we assembled on the last week of September to continue
our studies where we had left off in May. A busy season was anticipated in
fraternal affairs. Our first social event was the smoker. All the members and

Other events of our Senior year include a Theatre Party, Installation of
Officers, and the Annual Banquet. After all is said and done, the banquet is the
most important function of our social calendar. It is a fitting farewell to the
members of the faculty, Who have taught us, a fitting farewell to the Juniors
who have decided to- carry the standards of our fraternity, and last but not
least, it affords the medium of a reunion, when graduate members may come and
meet new brothers and thus forge the bond of good fellowship, stronger and

URING the year of 1919 the Beta Chapter of the Lambda Kappa Sigma
Sorority was organized at the Albany College of Pharmacy. 1920 and '21
saw its growth and prosperity greatly increased. During 1921 many social func-
tions and general " good times " kept up the spirit of friendship in the Sorority.
These activities owe their success to the co-operative work of Frances Ros-
ensweig, Presidentg Margaret Ostrander, Vice-President and Secretaryg Bernice
Shortly after school opened all the pledge members were invited to attend
a house party given by the graduate chapter. It was at this party that the girls
became acquainted with each other, especially the new members with the gradu-

An initiation dance was held November 15th. This dance proved attractive
since it was the first social event of the year. The girls were at their best and
remained jolly, even when little initiation attractions, such as exhibition dancing,
proposals, etc., were " carried off." -
On january 15th a subscription dance was given at the Aurania Club. A
large number of students attended. It was at such occasions as these that every
one decided " school is no-t so bad after all."
There was quite ai lapse of time before Lambda Kappa Sigma shone on
the social list again. But the meetings, held twice a month, proved enjoyable
evenings, each meeting being better than the last one.
About the first of May the usual annual banquet was held at the Kenmore
Hotel. Thisevent, which was for the active members together with the honorary
and alumni members, was la.rgely attended. President Kitty Rosensweig acted
as toastmistressf Responses were made by several members especially Mrs.
Mansfield and Mrs. Hutman. , X ,
The formal dance at VVolfert's Roost May 4th proved to be the leading
event of the year. An invitation was extended to all the students and it is
needless to say they responded joyfully. It was -the last event of the year, so it
Was' at this dance everyone parted, some never to return, others with the thought
that they were still juniors, and therefore must return the following year.
Vacation passed quickly and September found us collected together for the
purpose of electing officers. Inez Sherwood then, but Mrs. McGrath from
Thanksgiving day on, was elected President. With Inez as our leader, things
went smoothly as usual, and much was accomplished. A welcome was given in
the form of a house party to the junior girls. During the course of the evening,
the talented juniors entertained with musical and other attractions, among them
a violin solo and a. vocal solo rendered by Sophie Sodosky,
After the Thanksgiving vacation, or to be exact, December 4th, a dance
was held. Aboutthirty-five couples attended. If ,anybody wishes to know per-
sonally what kind of a time was had by all, well just ask Mrs. McGrath. It was
a. great success, so we heard from the junior girls the next day.
We were all waiting patiently for the returns of the first quarterly exam-
inations, when it was decided the following girls were to be admitteld to the
sorority: Stella Sodosky, Marion Young, Anna Moses, Mary Stah, Elizabeth
Cohen, Minnie Galst, Blanche Sarnault.

Initiations over with, a.lso the mid-year exams, and January 22nd found a
large number attending a sorority dance.
The subscription dance, March 17th, held at the Yacht Club proved more
successful than previous years. There were novelties of all descriptions which
resulted in a noisy and a very enjoyable evening.
The next affair will be the annual banquet, and following this, the farewell
dance at VVolfert's Roost.

" THE NEUTRALS 'i
EUTRAL." When one sees the word, they first think instinctively of the
war and those who were not engaged therein. According to VVebster's
Unabridged it means, " unbiased, indifferent, taking neither side in a contest "
and when applied to chemistry, " neither acid nor alkaline."
As used in this case it can have no connection with a war, unless i-t be the
war we are waging against the atoms and molecules, or against the cork cells and
chlorophyll, over both of which we are slowly but steadily gaining the ascendancy.
It, however, has no connection here for we are allied with the forces of the
test tubes and the microscopes.
As used in the only other -two ways it could possibly have a bearing, namely,
" unbiased and taking neither side in a contest," it will be seen that there is no
connection possible. Then, too, the results of the Senior Class election con-
clusively proves this. y
In short, the " Neutrals" of the Class of 1924 are t'hose members of the
class who are not members or who do not owe allegiance in any way to any of
the fraternities existent a.t A. C. P. In other words, they do not "belong" but
manage to " get by," so to speak, without the helping hand of brotherly love
and affection, stretched forth to assist them over the rough places.
Since the " Neutrals " are not an organization, but merely that great number
of individuals, they will not have any organized activities. But their prowess
of mind and muscle is shown by the attainments of the individuals.
The " Neutrals " have held a front place in statesmanship and scholarship,
and even in toxicology, including the testing of the " potency " of volatile, non-
metallic poisons. Although not the lea.ders in this branch of science, we rank
among the first. f
A word concerning statesmanship. At the time of the junior class election
two neutrals succeeding in attaining prominence, Mr. R. Cf. Ehrmann as our
President, and Mr. S. Carlat as our Second Vice-President. It goes without
saying, that -our class prospered under the efficient leadership of these men.

At the exercises in Chancellor's Hall last Ma.y the " Neutrals " came into
their own rightful heritage. For they scored high in honors. Gf the twenty-one
Junior honor students, twelve were of the " Neutrals," or if you prefer, 57W
were " Neutral." And of these twelve honor students, five succeeded in attaining
the highest averages of our class.
Wfhen it came to prizes we were at hand too, for the " Neutrals " carried
off six of the eight prizes offered.
This year, as Seniors, we start on the last lap of our race, endeavoring to
uphold all the standards set last year. So far We have succeeded.
The " Neutrals " are represented on the Board of Editors of this Alembic-
CIJAPMAKON by the Editor-in-Chief, Mr. E. C. Pendleton, and the two associate
editors, Mr. L. J. Pierce and Mr. E. C. Proper.
As this exposition draws to an end, we of the " Neutrals " look back at a
successful half-year, a Christmas party, and a vacationg and ahead, to the time
next spring when we hope to receive our sheepskins and at that time add more
laurels to our section in some one of the activities heretofore mentioned.

PORTS at the A. C. P. consist of basketball, bowling, a track meet and base-
ball games. The track and field meet together with the baseball game are
held at the beginning of each new school year, each class participating. Victorieg,
by the junior or Senior class count toward possesion of a silver loving cup.
To increase wholesome rivalry be-twe-en the classes and to create a general
interest in athletics by the student body the college has placed in competition
a beautiful silver loving cup. This cup becomes the property of the class which
garners the greatest number of points as the result of victories in the bowling
league, inter-class basketball games, field and track meet and the baseball game.
As soon as the new classes had started and everybody had settled down
with the grim determination to " hit " the first exams, Dean Mansfield declared
a holiday, to be devoted to- our annual ball game and track meet. The leaders
of both classes immediately laid plans for a glorious conquest of the enemy and
incidentally gain a lap in the race for the cup. Baseball teams were organized and
they diligently practised for the coming combat. 1
Everybody who had ever been seen to go faster than a normal walk was
d l ' t lled as representatives of their class on the track team. The day on
u y ins a
which the various athletes were to gain honors or otherwise finally came round
as all days are apt to do. At two o'clock the umpire walked out on the diamond
at Beverwyck Park and bellowed the magic words, " play ball." The great
game had finally begun and it was " some " game. Plays rivaling the " big time H
stars were made and even one of the " Ba.be's " own was exhibited before the
ardent fans. When the dust of mortal co-mbat had finally lowered it was seen
that the juniors had won over their hated rivals. The crowd now adjourned to
Ridgefield Park and here the runners, jumpers, and weight men went through
their " stuff." After the sun had disappeared and the gray shades of evening
were fast falling it seems that the " pesky " juniors had again trounced the
Seniors. All in all it was a golden letter day for the juniors for contrary to
' ected won both track meet and
general expectations they had done the unexp ,
l d for the cup But their double victory served only to
ball game, and a big ea .
increa.se the determination of the Seniors to " get that cup " and a great battle
can be expected later on.
The judges included Dr. Edgar A. Vander Veer, Professor VVilliam A.

' ' , BASKETBALL
For the last several years the A. C. P. has been represented in the basketball
world,by a court five. The team has been improving year by year and while the
season of 1922-1923 can not be called a success it was by no means an absolute
failure. Starting practise early in October under the watchful eye of Coach
McLaughlin and Manager Brooks a very credible combination was formed.
Many of the juniors managed to secure berths on the team and the season was
duly opened by an 'interclass game which proved a walk .away for the Juniors.
Then followed a victory over St. Stephens on their home court. The A. C. P.
team played a strong offensive game and coupling this with a strong defense they
came home with the bacon. p 1
The Syracuse University "Prosh" hve proved to be too strong for the
"Pharmacists " but although greatly outweighed they offered stiff opposition
for a great part of the game. Later in the ga.me the lads from Syracuse spurted
and put the game safely on ice.
After several m-ore victories for the Junior team St. Stephens came to Albany
and reversed the tables on the home team. After a fast game they grabbed
victory by a few points. This was the closest game played on the home court
by the A. C. P. five. '
During the basketball season the champion Junior team won several games
from near-by high schools and from the Law School Reserves. In so doing they
proved themselves champions of their class. The members of the 1922-1923
team and -their previous records follow:
Captain Horner P. Lasher, '23, Lansingburgh, New York. "Chet" was
captain for two years and filled the post in a highly satisfactory manner. He
Was the stellar player in nearly all the games played.
Clarence E. Hayes, '23, Potsdam, New York. Hayes was a good reliable
guard who alwa.ys gave the best he had in him.
Arthur S. Palmer, '23, Oneonta, New York. Although he played in but a
few of the games he showed that given the opportunity he would certainly be
Allan Barnum, 324, Lansingburg, New York. "Al" was the stellar center
of the team. Big and lanky he filled in the position nicely. His sensational shots
often brought the crowd to their feet-
One hundred nine
Robert C. Mulvey, '24, Ilion, New Y-ork. "Bob,', although a newcomer
to the game certainly played a nice game when given the opportunity.
John Callahan, '24, Frankfort, New York. A small man but "Cal " cer-
tainly could play basketball. In several games his uncanny eye spelled doom for
the opposing five.
Wm. Mulvey, '24, Ilion, New York. " Bill " played a good game at guard
which was his regular position.
Edmund Murphy, 324, Herkimer, New York. "Ed,' was a classy guard
and because he's Irish he handled his men about as he pleased.
The prospects for a winning team this year, 1923-1924, are bright. Prac-
tice has been going on for a month and the team is about ready for the opening
game. In a pre-season game the Seniors rose up in their might and managed
to take a hotly contested game from the Juniors. Thus in some measure they
have avenged the double defeat of the fall, namely the track meet and baseball
Manager Farrant and Assistant Manager McKenna have arranged a good
schedule for the present season.
Schedule for 1923-1924:
Cooper Union, 433 A. C. P., 33

Other games are being arranged for and when completed will be the heaviest
schedule ever attempted.
Under the guidance of Professor S. S. Smith a bowling league was organ-
ized. Pour competing teams were formed, Seniors, Juniors, Faculty and the
One hundred ten
1 W .
Every Friday evening a regular number of scheduled games are " rolled "
on the Y. M. C. A. alleys. This league has become a " real " thing in the college
doings. Many excellent bowlers have been developed and a great deal of interest
is taken in the results of each match. A record is kept of all the scores rolled
and a suitable prize is to be awarded the high man for the year. As the points
won in the bowling league promise to decide who gets the cup a great deal sof
interest is taken by the whole student body.
Y. M. C. A. CLASSES
Every week under the direction of Mr. McLaughlin classes are held at
the Y. M. C. A. Attendance at these classes is compulsory. This idea is in
keeping with they movement among American universities and colleges of having
every student take active part in some sort of physical activity. This tends to
bring up the scholastic standard of a college: because any improvement in the
condition of the human body tends to bring about an increased activity on the
part of the brain as has often been proven. So every class at the " Y " consists
of simple setting up exercises and group games. The results are already notice-
able in the college classes.
The young ladies or our co-eds have their class every week at the Y. VV. C. A.
Here they receive the same training as the men of the college.
It is noticeable as one reviews college activities of other days that each year
A. C. P. is doing more and more. May the day come when due to- the support
of the undergraduates as well as graduates, A. C. P. can claim a place in the
athletic world as high as her present standing in the world of letters. It can
be done only by the whole-hearted support of the student body Working in
sympathy with the faculty but I'm sure that that day is coming.

HE Class of '24 boasts in that during their senior year the Glee Club of
A. C. P. was organized and took its place as a recognized activity and organ-
ization of our Alma Mater.
It developed through the co-operation of those members of the student
body, together with the Dean and Professor O'Brien, who volunteered to give
their services, in a vocal Way, toward making successful the fourth annual Christ-
mas party. The result was the formation of the Glee Club as it now stands.
A small organization now, to be sure, but one which will grow and grow
through talent only. No-t only is this club a credit to the college but to the indi-
viduals themselves Who have made it count in our Student life.
The club members gave great promise at their initial performance, -the Christ-
mas party, and we do not doubt but that We shall hear them many times before
that last appearance,-Commencement.

HE College Qrchestra was Organized soon after the Opening of the l923
session, upon the Suggestion of Dean Mansfield. The idea was primarily,
to have an organization that could be called upon to officiate at School functions
in an efficient manner. During that year the orchestra proved to be both excel-
lent and essential. The exercises at Commencement time Would not have been as
successful as they were had it not been for the beautiful music suppliedf by
" our boys."
Then our Senior year began and once aga.in the orchestra proved its Worth
for now it officiates at all the dances, parties, etc., given by the various institutions
of the college, and it also participates, at times, in other outside entertainments.
Two noteworthy illustrations of this are the time when the A. C. P. Qrchestra
broadcasted from WGY, at Schenectady and the playing for the educational
Week banquet at the Ten Eyclc.
Such has been its success, that we can but look forward to ever-increasing
popularity and a greater measure of success.

A SOFT ANSWER
One Sunday evening the old colored pastor of a church in the South stepped
before his Hock, and as was his habit began, " Wfell, breddern and sistern, what

There was a pause, and then a voice in a rear pew was heard saying: " Speak
on pills! "
"'What's dat? " asked the pastor.
" Speak on pills!" was repeated.
For a moment the old servant of the Lord seemed disconcerted. Recover-
ing himself he began: " Pills! Pills! VVell, breddern and sistern, der am pills

One day in Chem. Labs " Giles " asked Inez what she learned when she was
in high school.
This was the answer " Giles " received.
" You may please decline 'kiss,", said a teacher one day
To Inez of sixteen who was pretty and sweet.
"VVhy, I hardly know how, but I'll try, anyway,"
She replied with a smile bewtitchingly sweet.
It's a noun thatls quite common, and when it's desired
It may be quite proper, I'm happy to say,
Its gender is common, second person required,
And it's plural in form in a singular way.
Its case is objective, you plainly can see,
Because it's an object so ardently sought
It agrees, in most cases, with you and with me.
But according to no rule by school masters taught,
I've made a mistake very likely somewhere-
If I have I assure you it's no fault of mine,
For I think to ask me was not very fair,
When you know that a kiss is hard to decline."

THE CHEMIST TO HIS LOVE
I love thee, Mary, and thou lovest me-
Our mutual Hame is like th' affinity
That doth exist between two simple bodies:
I am Potassium to thine Oxygen.
'Tis little that the holy marriage vow
Shall shortly make us one. That unity
Is, after all, but metaphysical.
O, would that I, my Mary, were an acid,
A living acid, thou an alkali
Endow'd with human sense, that, brought together,
We both might coalesce into one salt,
One homogeneous crystal. Oh! that thou
VVert Carbon, and myself were Hydrogen,
We would unite to form olefiant gasp
Or common coal, or naphtha-would to heaven
That I were Phosphorus, and thou wert Lime
And we of Lime composed a Phosphuret.
I'd be content to be Sulpihuric Acid,
So that thou might be Soda. In that case
We should be Glauber's Salt. Wert thou Magnesia
Instead we'd form that's named from Epsom.
Couldst thou Potassa be, I Aqua-fortis,
Our happy union should that compound form,
Nitrate of Potash-otherwise Saltpeter.
And thus our several natures sweetly blent,
We'd live and love together, until death
Should decompose the Heshly te1'tiu11z quid,
Leaving our souls to all eternity
Amalgamated. Sweet, thy name is Briggs
And mine is Johnson. Wherefore should not we
Agree to form a Iohnsonate of Briggs?
We will. The day, the happy day, is nigh,
When Johnson shall wi-th beauteous Briggs combine.

THE PROGRESS OF CHEMISTRY
HEMISTRY as a science has been known from the earliest of times when
the knowledge of this age-old subject consisted merely of that of a few of
the metals, presenting a sharp contrast to the present-day chemistry, with its
numerous branches and ramifications. The knowledge of chemistry has been
handed down -through the ages of history, revealing to us the wonders and
miracles of the ancients, of the beautiful palaces and cities which kings and
pharaohs erected and which have tottered through the mere chemical elements
of time. A
That the science of chemistry was n-ot unknown to the ancients is a well-
known fact. The Ribl-e informs us that at least six distinct metals were recog-
nized by the Jews, namely: gold, silver, iron, copper, tin and lead. The Chinese,
the Phoenicians, the Egyptians we-re all well versed in the practical applica.tions
of chemistry, the manufacture of glass, pottery, metallurgical processes such as
the separation of gold, the preparation of mercury from cinnabar and the separa-
tion of lead, silver and- iron from its ores were carried on extensively by these
nat-ions. T'he ,art of dyeing and embalming was practiced with the greatest of
skill by these ancient people, thus we still have the purple toga of the Oriental
nations to testify for the knowledge on the subject of dyes. The recent opening
of King Tut-Ankh-Amen's tomb revealed to the world noit merely the ideals of
ancient Egyptians through vases and relics that were found :in the tomb, but
much to the amazement of the discoverers, the features of the ancient king were
found intact. This reveals to us that these people were the greatest masters in
this almost lost art, embalming the dead.
Hand in hand with knowledge of chemistry comes that of' pharmacy. The
primitives and ancient peoples no-t only made and compounded medicines -from
herbs gathered from the fields but also from minerals and metals of which a
number were known.
Through the discovery of the Papyrus Ebers in 1872, which is supposedly
a collection of formulas of about 1550 B.C., corresponding to the twenty-first
ear of the life of Moses some definite knowledge of the art of the apothecary
Y T f ' . .
is known. Thus, amongst other remedies of an organic nature such as oils, wines,
yeast, vinegar, galbanum or frankincense, and henbane or hyoscyamus, we have

the inorganic minerals now familiar to most laymen, namely, lime, magnesia,
soda, nitre, sulphur, iron and lead. The Hebrew Bible speaks of the apothecary
or perfumer with his oinitments and anointing oils and here and there gives a
few descriptive and familiar names such as myrrh, cinnamon, Wormwood, juniper,
vinegar, saffron and nitre. Hippocrates, who is generally acknowledged as the
true founder of Greek medicine in-troduced not only vegetable drugs but chemicals
as well. Among these areialthaea, alum, ammoniac, chenopodium, clove, licorice,
linseed, mercury, myrrh, nitre, poppy, lime, scammony, sulphur, verdigris and
many others. This valuable information comes to us through Galen whose name
is immortalized in pharmacy through its application to the well known prepara-
tions called galenicals. The work in chemistry of Geberand and his Arabian
associates occupies a very important place in this science. To Geberand is cred-
ited tthe .naming of certain of the elements by their astrological names, the belief
of the alchemists being that a connection existed between the metals and the
stars. Thus gold became Sol, silver, Luna, copper, Venus, iron, Mars, tin,
Jupiter, and lea.d Saturnine. This explains the modern allusions to Saturnine
solutions, Martian preparations, Lunar caustic, etc. Paracelsus early in -the six-
teenth century made a number of chemical discoveries such as zinc, several com-
pounds of mercury including calomel, sublimed sulphur or flowers of sulphur
and also urged the use of iron and antimony preparations in medicine. Our well-
known diachylon or lead plaster was originated by a physician of the Caesars,
Tibernis Claudius Menecrates.
The term chemistry itself originated many centuries ago. Some authors
ascribe the origin to the word chemi which translated from the Egyptian means
" the black land " referring to Egypt as the land from which much knowledge
of chemistry has been obtained. Other authors, however, credit the naming of
this ancient science to the Hebrew word Chaman or ilslaman, meaning secret, in
support of the ancient theory that chemistry was a science " that was not tit to
be divulged to the populace, but treasured up as a religious secret."
Historical data on chemistry as a science demonstrates very explicitly that
there have been centain well-marked epochs that can be distinguished in the gen-
eral progress of this science. The earliest period, usually referred to as the ancient
period, was devoted merely to speculations on the ultimate composition of sub-
stances. However, much work was done by the Egyptians with -the known metals
chieliy with gold, mercury, tin, iron and lead. The alchemical period which
lasted for over a thousand years even up until the last century, was chietly
dominated by the idea that the metal gold could be formed from the com-
mon metals by a chemical process through the agency of such substances known
as the Essence, the Philosopher's Stone, the lilixir of Life, etc., possessing super-
natural powers. The names which stand out chietly in this period are Geber
One hundred thirty-four
of the eighth century, and Groot who speaks of the waiter bath, cupels, alembics
and their application to chemistry. He also speaks of cream of tartar, alum,
green vitriol, and a number of other important chemicals. Bacon and Lully are
also associated with a number of books on alchemy and such important subjects
as the action of aqua regia or nitrohydrochloric acid is stated, the distillation
of alcohol and its dehydration by the aid of carbonate of potash and the prepara-
tion of tinctures and a number of metallic compounds such as red and white
precipitate. Qne -of the most important names connected with this period is that
of Valentine whose name appeared on a collection of books of the seventeenth
century. These referred to the identity and manufacture of a large number of
chemicals such as butter of antimony, the oxide, arsenic, bismuth and manganese,
mercurial prep-arations, the chlorides of iron and sal ammoniac. Iatro-chemistry
was a particular phase of chemistry that was related -to medicine. Its chief
exponent was Paracelsus, of the fifteenth century. Iatro-chemistry has rendered
a service to science which consisted in bringing chemistry within the range o-f
professional study. As a result a great increase in the discovery of chemicals
and compounds occurred. Chemistry was greatly advanced during this period
principally by Agricola, Palissy, and Glauber, the discoverer of sodium sulphate
or Glaubers' salt and the 'author of the pharmacopeias of the seventeenth cen-
tury. Such important substances as sulphuric, hydrochloric, and nitric acids
became ordinary articles of commerce. Acetates and tartrates, Rochelle salt, salt
of sorrel or carbonate of potash, and tartar emetic were also known. A mixture
of ether and alcohol long known as Hoffman's drops was employed as a medicine
by Paracelsus. During the latter half of the seventeenth century a change began
to occur in the intellectual development of Europe. The people became skeptical
of the weird mysteries and secrets that were guarded so closely by the priests. A
period of reform and inquiry set in. Robert Boyle through his book, " The
Sceptical Chemist," was the first to challenge the old philosophy and chemical
ideas that existed in the seventeenth century. He allied himself with a group of
earnest men who were anxious to learn the mere truth of the activities of matter
by experimentation upon various bodies. Boyle's experimental work was of the
highest order. His work upon gases led to the discovery of the relation of the
volume of a gas to the pressure, namely Boyle's Law. He explained the action
of the syphon and a number of other physical phenomena. He advanced the idea
of an element and its relation to a compound and stimulated the idea of chemical
analysis. Kunkel a chemist and pharmacist, Becker Mayow, Lemery, Homberg,
Boerhaave, Hales are all noted and wonderful characters of this period who aided
in freeing true chemistry from the false ideas of alchemy. ,
just previous to our modern chemistry and immediately following what is
generally termed the a.lchemical period we have the phlogistic period or phlogis-
One hundred thirty-Jive
tonism. The chemists of this period served. merely as a link between the alche-
mists and our modern chemistry. The idea generally advanced by chemists of this
period was that all combustible or calcinable substances contained a substance
called phlogiston and that this substance was evolved during a chemical change.
If a substance rich in phlogiston were heated with a metal, the metal would be
changed. Thus, a change might occur in this manner.
Metal-I-phlogistonzmetal oxide. As pharmacists it is pleasing to note
that one of the most comprehensive workers of this period was Scheele a phar-
macist. He was one of the greatest chemical discoverers of his time. He isolated
chlorine, discovered a great number of common substances some of which are,
arsenous acid, lactic, gallic, citric, oxalic, tartaric, malic and mucic acids. As a
discoverer, Scheele stands supreme. The other most notable workers of this
time were, Black, Cavendish and Priestly. Black, an Englishman, is associated
with a great deal of experimental work on the alkalis and their actions also the
theory of specific and latent heat. Priestly, the discoverer of oxygen gas, devoted
his experiments chiefly to gaseous substances and as a result introduced the art
of eudiometry or gas analysis. Cavendish's greatest discovery was the deter-
mination of the composi-tion of water and the explanation of such terms as
" hardness of water " and "softness of water." The ancient idea of tire, air,
and water as elements was cleared up during this period.
These three principles were regarded as elements. However the term ele-
ment as we understand it today differed from the ancient idea, in that. theirs
was a more fundamental property rather than a unitary kind of matter. The
history of combustion and fire is deeply connected with phlogistonism and it was
through this medium that tire was iinally determined upon as not being one of
the elements. The age-old theory of air as an element was discarded when Yan
Helmont and others isolated several gases which were identified as existing in
the atmosphere. Today we have come to learn that air is not only a mixture
of a great number of very important gases, but that animals and plants are
extracting from the atmosphere, gases which are just opposite in nature, namely
O2 and CO2. At present the nature and identity of several inert gases has not
yet been exactly determined. A comparatively new held in radioactivity has been
found. Some of the products of the disintegration of radium have been identitied
as the inert gases of the atmosphere. Helium has been recognized as one of these
products. Cavendish, by his experiment in burning ll: thus forming water,
proved that water was not an element but a delinite chemical compound, thus
abolishing forever the ancient idea concerning this important substance. How-
ever, Lavoisier first made a quantitative synthesis of water and gave to lolz its
modern name " water producer."
One hundred thirty-six
Lavoisier was one of the greatest scientists of his age. Much credit is due
to him for the upheaval of the ancient ideas concerning chemistry. In reality
he was the man that was responsible for the transition of chemistry from the
uncertain ideas of his predecessors to the firm and stable principles of modern
chemistry. His reasoning powers were so sound and backed by his accurate
experiments that he won the confidence of the scientific world. Lavoisier intro-
duced the idea of conservation of matter, the real principle which lies at the
basis of chemistry as a science. Sad to say, the leader and one of the greaites-t
scientists of the eighteenth century was a victim of the fury of the mob rule
of the times. Thus the man who was directly responsible for modern chemistry
was destroyed by a band who little knew of the great influence he would exercise
over the scientific world as long as mankind exists. The most eminent men asso-
ciated with Lavoisier are Berthollet, Fourcroy, Vauquelin, Kloproth and Proust,
the son of a pharmacist.
The development of the atomic theory by Dalton marked an epoch in the
history of chemistry. From this time on chemistry was known as an exact science.
Dalton from his experiments with Marsh ga.s and the oxides of nitrogen was
able to determine exactly the amounts of each gas by weight which were neces-
sary to combine with one another. This led to his discovery of the laws of
chemical combination and of multiple proportions. The work done by Berzelius,
a great discoverer, is also connected with this period of chemical history. Through
his investigations he explained to us the phenomena known as isomerism and of
metamerism and polymerism. At this time, also, the discoveries of Gay-Lussac
of the law of combining volumes and Boyle's law greatly aided in molding ,the
wonderful modern idea of chemistry. Amongst those who might be mentioned
as the founders of modern chemistry are Liebig, Wfohler, Dumas.
Liebig is chiefly associated with his experiments upon organic substances
such as chloral, chloroform, the aldehydes, etc. Wohler who broke down the
vital force theory by the synthesis of urea from ammonium cyanate exercised
a great infiuence in the chemical world. Dumas was a no less interesting char-
acter who introduced the methods of determining the vapor densities of a sub-
stance. At a.bout this time organic chemistry was becoming to be recognized
as a separate science from inorganic chemistry. Up until this time organic sub-
stances were used by the pharmacist solely for their medicinal or technical value.
The theory and study of organic chemistry began to shape itself and many
volumes were written on the compounds of carbon.
Along with these important discoveries of the theory of atoms, molecules
and the valency of the elements comes the Periodic Law as propounded by
Mendeleef, a Russian chemist, in 1869. This arranged the elements in order of
One hundred thirty-seven
increasing atomic weight. Their properties were shown to vary in a uniform
manner. This arrangement no-t only led .to the discovery of a number of new
elements but such men as Meyer and others were able to draw very definite
conclusions which further enriched chemistry as a science. XVe have seen that
from the earliest of times both organic and inorganic compounds were known
and used by the people both technically and as remedies for the alleviation of
sickness. However, it remained for the modern chemists to ind out the exact
nature of these compounds, their properties and behavior with other known
substances. It was their labor and genius which separated inorganic chemistry
from the organic and pointed out the scope of each of these. The study of
modern chemistry, thanks -to that wonderful system devised by Mendeleef, has
been greatly aided by the grouping of the elements into their respective families.
The organic compounds also have been somewhat reduced from their mysteries
associated with their lengthy names, by their grouping into the aliphatic or open-
chain hydrocarbons, and the aromatics or closed-chain compounds.
The relation of aromatics and aliphatics or all-fatty compounds was not
exactly understood. Such substances as essential oils, balsams, and resins because
of their characteristic odor were referred to as aromatics. liekule in 1866 drew
attention to a number of significant facts concerning aromatic compounds. He
showed tha.t these not only had a large munber of homologues but also that
aromatic compounds were richer in carbon than the aliphatic compounds. He
also showed that the simplest aromatic compound contained at least six carbon
atoms. Benzene the starting point of the entire family of aromatics was first
discovered by Farady in 1825. Much credit is due to liekule on this wonderful
theory. He also occupied himself with the chemistry of the alkaloids which plays
such an important role in our present day medicine. Through a series of experi-
ments by Berzelius, Hoffman, Liebig and Gerhardt the nature of these alkaloids
was determined as being basic and containing nitrogen, therefore they were
classed as amines. It was also determined that the three very important organic
substances, quinoline, isoquinoline and pyridine constitute a large number of
nuclei in the composition of numerous alkaloids.
Our present day chemistry is no longer attended by a groping in the dark.
At present we have a well devised system in which chemistry in all its phases
may be studied. New fields are being opened all the time in this wonderful
science. As progress in this line of endeavor continues it is our sincere hope
that the pharmacist will continue to play even a greater and more important
role than even his predecessors did in the past.

T is customary for every good or well-intended narrative, article, sketch, story
book, or any other outburst or expression of self-impressed genius to have
a dedication. You have noticed, therefore, that this journal and its various
features have been duly and properly dedicated. There is something which is
constantly emphasized throughout our humble effort of journalism, and we wager
that you, gentle and perhaps patient reader, have not observed. You have gazed
with somewhat mixed admiration upon the fair " fronts," profiles, " closeups "
mostly, of our graduating Noble Seniors. Have you noticed one trait on their
handsome and otherwise discriminating faces that is common to all of them?
No! That's it. You've guessed it. It is their " Eyes H that will be the meat for
our topic or rather our discussion.
Their Eyes, you now notice, are open, wide open. The course has evidently
been of some advantage to them. It was indeed a painful process of learning.
It started from the occasional deep snoring or quiet slumber in the lecture room,
then to the unassuming, unconscious sta.re, gradually progressing to the open-eyed
wondering look of acquiring knowledge, finally to the observing, coolly calcu-
lating, wise and most-ahem-so-phisticated, -penetrating look with all the "Know"
in them. This was an evolution that took place in the lecture classes, and with
more or less general attention to details on Pearl and State streets in the evenings.
We wish to introduce the Tom, Dick, Harry or Mary of the one-flivver,
jerk-water towns, who came to the conservative and discriminating town of
Albania for an education. These are the personages also looking for deserving
credit. It is the stuff that made these boys risk their health, comforts, and leave
their quiet lives, and also a considerable dent in the family's pocketbook, that is
deserving of comment. Your big towner may scoff and look wisely superior at
some of the things his brotherly neighbor cherishes in memory or in deed, but
that B. T. evidently does not know what he is missing. He probably cannot
stomach or digest the mealtime gossip of the night out before. You cannot blame
him though, the way each single topic is so thoroughly discussed and masticated
to its last shreds of the aforesaid unfortunate topic so discussed. How each
act, touch, walk, thought, girl, is so thoroughly chewed up reminds him of the
"Sixteen men on a dead man's chest " but Yo! Ho! where is that Rum? Ask
our Seniors, they know!
So with these remarks we leave the facts in the hands of the jury. Wfe also
trust to have caused you a little relaxation and suspense, in order to know that
" we shall not have dedicated in vain."

The moon shone down, as a cloud passed by,
And behold, 'twas a wondrous scene.
My arms were tired, my paddling ceased,
The canoe drifted down through the night.
The voice of the river on the breath of the breeze
Was a constant source of delight. -
The peace of the river, the stillness of night,
Made holy this wonderful hour.
The canoe cradled gently to and fro,

PHARMACY-INTERPRETED BY THE STUDENT
HARMACY expressed in ethical terms means the study of the theories and
exercise of the operations necessary zto the intelligent preparing and dis-
pensing of substances used in the healing art. The glaring fact which emphasizes
the outcome of this official definition is that the practice of pharmacy has pro-
gressed from the jumbling of crude drugs and oftentimes of many disagreeable
ingredients of which the compounder knew but little, to the modern blending
of carefully rehned constituents, of which the operator knows not only the past
history, but also the future action, both chemically and therapeutic.
Upon matriculation the prospective student gradually forms his general
understanding of pharmacy. He is first taught that the profession in which he
is entering is something more than that which the average layman has outlined
it to be. A science not wholly devoted to the pouring of liquids from one bottle
to another and charging an exorbitant price for the labor involved. As the
course is prolonged pharmacv sends forth an intelligent appeal which results
in the interpretation of not only the technical performance, but emphasizes the
pleasure of lifting the mind above sordid cares and worries.
From this viewpoint what is more refreshing to the brain, than to be able
to turn continually to life and give not only one's limbs and, muscles, but our
minds and souls, the part -that God and nature intended -they should have.
Witli the assembling of facts during the course the profession of pharmacy
is an asset to the woman and man, who has any natural ability. lVhy? Because
it affords one a basis, a preparation for a, life work. It gives one a greater insight
into things, it makes one's judgment and reason superior to that of the average
person, and it makes one capable of doing things that the average layman can-
Let us pause to conside-r the ownership of pharmacies by non-licensed men.
The danger is too great to be enumerated in words and the student realizing
this, is doing his utmfosit, not in a spirit of agitation and discontent, to bring about
a complete change. It is a significant fact to him that pharmacy must not be used
in the afttainment of something less honorable. Due consideration of this is Given
by the student, the idea not being transient, and he finds reason to know that

pharmacy should not become the refuge ofonslaughts and delusions of material-
ism. Sentiment and emotion must have an outlet, while modes of expression
shift from one art to anothe-r, but to the student pharmacy is for only those who
have a positive bearing.
Yet there is the thought for those who are contemplating a life in the large
city, the city, the suburb and the country. To mention this brings the thought
of responsibility and dependability. In each of these qualities the science of
pharmacy is exact. It means much to the student with prospective ideas and he
learns through these qualities to keep pharmacy on a par with its sister profession.
The true esthetic delights to be derived from pharmacy are something very
different from and far qabovle the mere mode of retailing. It consists in no small
measure of an opportunity to come into contact with the vital interests of women
and men of world affairs. It gives aclear understanding of the various expressions
of human nature.
There is a certain incongruity in speaking of the material elements out
of which the student assimilates his foundations-drugs, chemicals, reagents,
paper, Weights, etc., While he uses them as a media, they do not constitute the
whole of the fundamentals. Inspired by these the student endeavors to discover
combinations that shall convey the expression of service.
Perhaps its greamest virtue is its power of desire -of beating down obstacles
and what might be termed incompatibilities in the prescription, and probe into
the real neason. A splendid illustration of this is borne out in the comparison
of the untrained and trained man. VVould a student of pharmaceutical training
dispense and compound inferior drugs, adulterated goods, and dangerous chem-
icals? It behooves the student to strike back for such a s-erious charge, as phar-
macy to him means a different kind of pharmaceutical service such as the science
itself implies. I-Ie realizes that incompetence, ignorance of the law, lack of
integrity, has caused the public to suffer unreasonable hardships.
In summing up these facts, we would do well 'to quote VValter Hines Page
in saying, "Without a hom-e feeling in the art no man can lay claim to high

You may remember that Thurston had been acting tpieerly for about a month
before he left New York. lt all started one evening when l was talting dinnci
with him. He once told me that he had given a dog strychnine and had watched
the animal die, and I believe that ever since that time he had trembled at th
matters little now-and jason, the butler, brought it in. 'l'he lirst taste conrinc

That night some sort of soup was the lirst course--the particular varietx

'S Jason ! " . , 1
The butler arrived in some haste. " Yes, sir, what is it, sir? " he asked.
Thurston seized the bowl of soup with one hand and Jason with the other.
"Jason! 'i he shouted-and his shout was almost a scream. Hjason! what
have you put in that soup? Answer me! What is it, I say? Speak out!"
And -Iason, no doubt thinking of the nutmeg, and fearing the loss of a
renumerative position, was silent, while I, too astonished to take part in the
rapidly unfolding drama, remained in my place. 1
"Ah, you refuse to speak. You've tried to poison me-do you hear? Poison
me." And Thurston's voice rose to a shriek. Dropping the bowl as though it
were white hot, he seized jason 'round the neck and startled to throttle him.
At that time I awoke from my stupor rather suddenly and dashed around
" Wait a moment, old man," I cried. " Let him go before they hang youf'
But my choice of " hang " was unfortunate. Drop Jason he did, but it
was only to turn upon me.
" Hang me? It would've been him they'd hang if I'd eaten that soup. I-Ie
tried to poison me, I tell you."
But I motioned for the butler to leave the room, and keeping pace with
my host in his stridings up and down, I reasoned with him until, exhausted,
we both sank into chairs. I reached and poured him a drink, but the sight of a
fluid maddened him again.
" Take it away. He's probably tampered with that, too," and I had most
of my work to do over.
Finally, however, he calmed down, and then, turning to me he said, " Cun-
ningham, go home and pack up, I'm off for South America to-morrow, and I
want you along with me."
Well that was nice. Of course I was his physician, and one of his closest
friends, but South America-I was about to argue the point, but further con-
sideration stopped me. The man was undoubtedly set on going, and in his
present state of mind, it would certainly be useless to try to swerve him from
his purpose. Then, too, it -was most assuredly my duty as a professional man and
as a friend to see that he came to no harm. I was a bachelor, no family ties
held me down, and-what was the deciding factor-Thurston was in no condi-
tion now to undertake such a voyage alone.
One hundred forty-five
' ' 3 , rp-,:4,gi'i'.i

Thus it was that with a few parting words of medical advice and his promise
to defer the trip for at least a week, I turned to go.
" Take jason with you," called out my host as I reached the door. " I daren't
trust myself to see his face."
So, taking the frightened butler in tow, I left for home.
The embarking was uneventful enough, but my troubles were to start before
we were long out of port. In fact, they started at the hrst meal. tor 'l hurston,
the fear of " Poison " still upon him, resolutely refused to eat, and it was only
after long pleading that he consented even to go to table.
Several days passed, and I had begun to believe that my patient was on the
road to recovery. And then one morning he ordered a milk-shake from the
steward. In the afternoon we ran into a heavy sea, and in common with twenty
or thirty other unfortunate ones, Thurston became violently sea-sick.
Immediately an overpowering madness took possession of his mind. .-Xfter
the first spasm of his illness had passed, leaving him weak and helpless, he
demanded to be brought immediately to his room.
" It was that steward did this," he said to me as l propped him up in bed.
" He's trying to poison me, too."
And from that stand he would not turn. lfor many hours he refused food.
and I finally had to pretend to taste every morsel to get him lu eat. llowever,
like the first, this second feeling passed in time, and hy the day we were due
to land my patient was again in shape.
Thurstonand I were on deck, watching the preparations for the docking of
the ship. just then,-oh, why did it have to he then ?---a young man near the
gangplank space raised a small vial to his lips, drank, and slumped lo the deck.
W'e rushed over, but one look was sufficient.
"Cyanide," I said. " He was dead in three seconds."
Instantly 'lhurston straightened up. Something seemed lo snap in his hrain.
and with a maniacal shriek he dashed over the now adjusted gangplank up the
main street of the city.
I followed as quickly as All could, but my speed was not enoughg the street
terminated in a railway depot, and l was just in time to see a train disappear
around a bend. A hasty inquiry convinced ni: that 'l'hurston was on hoard, and

that the train was bound for the jungle. Then followed a rapid succession of
interviews between train authorities, police and natives.
"VVhy, Senor," replied one of the latter to me in Spanish, to my demand
for a special train to follow, " it's impossible. There are so many places where
your friend could have dropped off, and besides, you could never find him in the
But in the end, good American dollars prevailed, although I was made to
realize the .futility of starting out so late in the day, and the night was spent in
arranging the train and in gathering the supplies for a journey into the jungle.
Provisions, netting, tents,-all went along, for my guide knew the jungle too well
to permit familiarity to breed contempt.
Early the next day we started, two natives and myself. During the morning
we stopped at every place where we thought Thurston might have left the train,
but had it not been for an old man and his wife who remembered seeing " a wild
man " jump from the train and dash into the underbrush, we should have lost
him altogether.. I was for dashing in likewise, but my guide smiled and vetoed
the idea. ,
"VVait till we try it," he said.
It was not long before I agreed with the guide. Progress through the growths
was slow and difficult at its best, and i-t was made for the most part with the
aid of an especially keen hatchet. Wfe must have fought prolific nature for
several hours when suddenly a faint cry came to our ears from one side. Turn-
ing quickly, we forced our way to the sound, and there, lying on the ground, a
purple flower in one hand, was Thurston. He smiled up at us weakly.
"I was so hungry," he whispered, "I ate one of these-they're so sweet.
jason'll not poison me here. I-Iave you any food? "
Then suddenly he gasped, shut his eyes, and fell back, still.
The guide pointed to the flower in the still, white hand. " That is the
Eucalyptus," he said. " It is sweet, that flower, but it is a deadly poison. It

to make an unapologetic stand codoperative with factors at work both in and out
of government bureaus for the stamping out of the evil cast upon our profession
by the unscrupulous elements that have entered therein.
ln attempting -this We are not obliged to adopt an attitude that will call
forth the cry of " hypocrite " either from our fellow-workers or from t-he laymen

or handling of alcoholic liquors within the rights granted us by law. Those of
us, if there be any, who " like our little drink now and thelnv may continue to
take it according to the diotations of our own conscience and the precepts of
the law, but whenever a layman asks us for a " pint of gin " let him down easy,

drinking of these substances is most surely and certainly bound to affect him
physically, morally and mentally.

A MID-WINTEIFS NIGHTMARE IN ALBANIA
HERE was no doubting the simple and concise statement, "il have' made
good." Success! Yes. It was there in the very concrete and material form
of the best, most brilliantly lighted and equipped combination drug store, ice
cream and candy department, cigar stand, photographic supply section, beauty
forming materials, and also one oI the best light lunch, sandwich and hot coffee
counters in the business, all of these being on the corner of Main and Iiroadway,
the principal thoroughfare in my community. It should be added that in the
furthermo-st corner of the store was the " prescription " department. If it was
hard to notice, why by merely overlooking or looking overhead, a neatly printed
and gilded sign informed the searching patron accordingly.
XVhere were the Ialse " prophets " and ill wishers who predicted and settled
my future as being a blank shell. Driving down to the store in my I-Iuick Sport
Roadster tmy lifelong ambitionl, the greetings accorded me along the way were,
" Hello, Doctor," or " lrlow are things, lloel " No, I still slept on very nmch
Entering the store with my register keys out, I was attracted by some com-
motion around the "miscellaneous bargain counter." It could not have been
caused by the rush for the bargain sales, as I had not ordered any for that day.
The people around that particular section were 1ny neighborly Iellow merchants,
and they were demanding to see the " Ilig Mogul " ot this "department " store.
I didn't like that term, neither did their desire to see me appear relishing. XYalk-
ing quietly over to the rabble, I asked the gentlemen to calm themselves, and
inquired the reason for their anxiety. Ilut, they, upon seeing me, appeared to
get more agitated, and I was suddenly aml eIIeetiyely dragged to the rear of
the store, where I kept my private oI'Iice.
Their apparent spokesman, a big, burly Iellow with a long Iace, and a rather
muddled apron, spoke up. " XX'e have come," he snarled, " as a committee not
only to protest, but to ac.tually remove everything from this place that does not
belong here." " Hut," I shouted, "everything here is paid Ior, or else arranged
on regular terms, and besides, I do not recall having you as my creditors." 'l'heir
spokesman grew red in the Iace, and liIting his hand as if to strike me, he shouted
One hundred ffty-four
back, " We do not mean that, you shrimp," a.nd turning to his fellow colleagues,
" Boys, get busy." I was held back and struck dumb when I noticed some more
" gents " enter and start removing my cigar counter and the foundations of the
fountain. Oh! So that was what they meant. " But," I protested, " you people
are selling-," but could get no further as he placed a large wad of perfectly
good cotton in my mouth. Slowly but surely -their evil work continued. It
seemed like a very well prearranged affair. The people passing by seemed to
have been informed in some mysterious way .that the " Sterling Drug Cof' will
devote its future time to medicinal preparations only, and so is removing its
superfluous baggage. Everything was removed with the exception of the pre-
scription counter. '
A sign was placed on the front window confirming these " facts."
I became determined -that this robbery and pillage should not continue and
attempting .to seize an ancient weapon of mine, a broom, my captor was too swift
for me, and he likewise seized a mortar and cnashed it very emphatically over
"Come on, boy, snap out of it! Did you do y-our doses yet?" I heard a
distant voice. " Did I do wha.t ?" Oh! it was my roomie 'tugging me. " Say,
Bud, I dreamed that-." " You did, eh? " he growled, " say let me inform you
that dreams are not the proper mediums by which your work will be accom-
plishedf' "Aw, dry up and stop preaching," I attempted to murmur. " There is
no use talking to you ' practical ' men, anyway."
