THE College of Pharmacy of the City of New York has now rounded out over a hundred years of its useful existence. Conceived of necessity, born in humility, it passed through its periods of storm and stress, until after nearly fifty years of precarious existence, con- ditions arose in the profession of Pharmacy which placed it upon a solid basis, enhanced its usefulness and caused it to take its place in the first ranks of the institutions of learning. Whiie following the development of the history of our College through its various periods, let us be fully impressed with devotion and spirit of self-sacrifice of the men who have been active in its affairs. But for them, the College might never have survived, and so this history is, in a sense, a paean in praise of those many and generous virtues which are found abundantly in the history of pharmaceutical advancement. The pharmacist has much to be proud of! The graduate of the Columbia College of Pharmacy will, after perusal of this history, point with pride to the fact that his Alma Mater, throughout her career, has steadily maintained and fostered all that is honorable, all that is ethical, all that is best in his pro- fession.

Our Emeritus Professors THE term Emeritus means retired from office on account of long and faithful service and honored with an unofficial position and title corresponding to that held when in active service. We do not know of any other two persons to whom this fine explanation of the meaning of the word Emeritus can apply more worthily than to our Professors Rusby and Diekman. Professor Rusby served our College almost 44 years, as Professor of Materia Medica and Dean. Under his guidance our College made great progress; it consumated its affiliation with Columbia University: it increased its entrance requirements from none to four years of High School; it placed the University instruction on a very high stand- ard and initiated graduate instruction equivalent in scope to that of the University. His services can and will not be equalled by any other man. Professor George C. Diekman served for nearly 40 years succeeding Mr. Peter Wendover Bedford, the first Professor of Pharmacy our College had. During the period of his professorship, Dr. Diekman easily captured the admiration and friendship of every student under him. His kindly manner and readiness to help and assist everyone will never be forgotten. We are happy that both Drs. Rusby and Diekman are with us in good health and spirits. Let us hope that they will enjoy the fruits of their splendid services to pharmacy in general and our College in particu- lar for many happy years to come.

rt SINCERELY appreciate the honor which the gradu- ating classes have conferred upon me. One of the rewards of teaching, and truly a source of keen satis- faction, is the knowledge that one has been a source of help in the student ' s acquisition of an education. There is nothing more inspiring to a teacher than a recepHve and appreciative audience. It is a reminder that he has not lost sight of the student outlook. To the classes of ' 36, may I offer this parting message: While graduation from college presupposes a certain ability to meet the formal requirements of your profession, more than ability is required to crash through the barriers of a world that is but cooly receptive to the importunings of the novice. One must acquire a watchful patience and in addition, sufficient initiative to create opportunities when there are no openings in sight. The world at no lime has been burdened with an overproduction of good ideas. Do not be afraid to try something neiv. The men and women who have received the most out of life are those who have chosen untrodden paths. Do not, at the first disappointment or obstacle, look about for a guardian angel in the form of individual or state aid. Do not rationalize that the world owes you something. Remember that you are part of that world. Do not look for easy roads to success. Success itself is never final and is far less interesting than the process of attaining it. To a pioneering youth that looks to no one for subsidy, but prefers to seek out opportunity and if necessary create it, may I extend my sincerest best wishes. Abraham Taub
