WHERE PHARMACY IS TAUGHT

HAS BOOSTED THE COMEDY CLUB
DION S. BIRNEY, WHO PLAYS FOR LAST TIME BEFORE
LOCAL PUBLIC, HAS BEEN ARDENT DEVOTEE
The old chemical laboratory, in
which the School of Pharmacy had
its birth, was purely a case of evolu-
tion. It originally consisted of a one-
story building about the size of an
ordinary class room. Numerous ad-
ditions were made until 1909-10, when
we abandoned the old building for our
present new, commodious quarters
where we, have every convenience-
fine laboratories, class-rooms, pre-
scription room, library, drug museum,
balance rooms, and dispensing rooms
equipped with all necessary chemi-
cals, glassware, and apparatus.
The hydrogen sulphide generator is
on the fourth floor and the gas is con-
ducted by tubes to suitable hoods
wherever it is required. Distilled
water is made on the fourth floor and
conducted through block tin pipes to
all the laboratories. The entire build-
ing is supplied with compressed air
for blast lamps.
The Drug Museum.
The drug museum occupies a floor
space of 2,500 square feet, and is pro-
,sided with permanent wall cases,
To be the oldest and most earnest
worker in dramatic interests in the
university, to have put more lines
over the Whitney stage than any other
student at present in Michigan-such
is the reputation of Dion S. Birney,
who takes the star lead of Evelyn, the
heaviest and most delightful of the
roles that Bulwer has created in his
master comedy, "Money." And it is
with no little regret that a few of the
old-timers who have followed the
Comedy club through the years in
which it has been in its ascendency,
will see delectable Dike take his final
leave from Michigan this year, for.
the dimpled favorite has won many'
friends, among those who have work-
ed with him and seen him work dur-
ing the six years that he has been
with us in Michigan. To such plug-
gers as Birney does the Comedy club
owe, in part, its gratitude for being
what it is today. To the versatile
Thespiasn who can take any role on'
short notice from a village half-wit
to a consumate John Drew in a
Romeo lead, the Comedy club owes
more than it can repay.

SYNOPSIS OF "MONEY,"7
THE COMEDY CLUB PLAY.
Sir John Vesey, whose consuming
love of money gives the title to the
play, awaits the reading of the will
of a certain wealthy relative, Mr. Mor-t
daunt of India, by whose clause he
expects a lion's share of the heritage.1
While awaiting the reading, Alfred
Evelyn, Sir John's private secretary
and distant poor relation of Mordaunt,t
solicits a loan of ten pounds that het
may send it to an old nurse who is ill.
Sir John refuses but his tenderhearted
daughter Georgina, asks him for the
nurse's address, promising herself that
she will send the money if she falls
heiress to the will.
Clara, companion of Lady Franklin,
and in love with Evelyn, secretly gets
the address of the nurse and sends the
ten pounds herself, all that she has int
the world. That her kind act will nott
be known to Evelyn, she has LadyI
Franklin's maid address the letter.
Subsequently Evelyn asks Clara to
marry him but she unselfish, refuses
the poor youth that he may not be
made miserable by the additional bur-
den of her own support. a
The will is read before the assem-
bled relatives, numbering, Sir John
Vesey, Georgina, Lord Glossmore,
Stout, Graves, Blount, Sharp, and
Evelyn. After several whimsical be-
quests are read from the will, it de-
velops that the bulk of the immense
fortune is left to Evelyn, the poor dis-
tant relative who was least expecteds
to fall heir.
The newly rich Evelyn begins td be-~
come miserable. His love has refusedE
him, but he invents a cordicil and
settles 20,000 pounds upon her, that
she may be made happy, and then he
devotes himself to Georgina, the spoil-
ed child of a miserly father. For he
believes that she sent the ten pounds
to his poor sick nurse. Sir Frederick
Blount, formerly in love with Ueor-
gina is about to propose to Clara, anda
all four seem ona fair way to unhap-
piness, when Evelyn invents a new
scheme. He refuses to pay his bills,
is seen as a constant companion to
Dudley Smooth the cleverest crook
and gambler in London, tries to bor-
row money and is finally arrested for
debt. Sir John in despair tells his
daughter to break her engagement
with Evelyn, which she does willing-
ly, reengaging herself to Blount, the
Aude. Clara, pitying Evelyn in his
adversity places 10,000 pounds to his
credit in the bank, sending him notice
of the deposit in a letter addressed in
the same hadwriting as that of the
letter to the old nurse. Lady Frank-
lin divulges the fact that both letters
were sent by Clara and Evelyn clears
everything up to his own satisfaction,
his ruse having worked. He has
gained his wife and he still has his

DEMAND FOR PHARMACY
Itcan -safely be said that never be-
fore have opportunities in pharma-
ceutical vocations been so great, an
success so certain as at present. A
examination of the Directory of'Alum-
ni demonstrates that graduates of this
school of pharmacy are occupying a
great variety of responsible positions,
demanding trust and skill, in all parts
of the United States and foreign coun-
tries. A recent canvass of the alumni
of this school shows them to be en-
gaged as proprietors of pharmacies;
prescription clerks; manufacturing
pharmacists and chemists; managers
of large retail drug houses; dispen-
sers and manufacturers of medicinal
products; In hospitals connected with.
universities, municipalities, the U. .
Army and Navy, and mining compan-
ies; public analysts and experts;
pharmaceutical and research chem
ists with the large pharmaceutical
'manufacturing concerns; analysts for
various state food, drug, and dairy de-
partments, and state agricultural ex-
periment stations, food and drug
chemists with the U. S. government in
the bureau of chemistry; teachers in
schools and colleges of pharmacy; edi-
tors of pharmaceutical journals; trav
elling salesmen for pharmaceutical
manufacturing and jobbing houses.
The Prescott Club.
This is a student organization to
which all students of the School of
Pharmacy are eligible to membership.
Meetings are held once a month at
which generally an outside speaker
gives anaddress upon some topic of
interest to the pharmaceutical pro-
fession. In addition, one or more stu-
dents prepare short papers upon the
monthly current events in pharmacy
and also upon scientific progress in
pharmacy. These meetings are of
greatest benefit to the student body,
as they bring members of all classes
together in social intercourse, give
them practice in public speaking and
stimulate the habit of library reading
