of Pharmacy

The practice of pharmacy dates back retail business. And there are at the

sary to train men to fill the constant- a greater demand for college gradu-
ly growing number-of positions in the ates and the salary is increasing.

Registered Pharmacists must be
twenty-one years of age, must have
had four years' practical experience
in pharmaceutical work in the place
where drugs, medicines and poisons
are dispensed and -etailed, and pre-
scriptions compounded, and must pre-
sent evidence that they have com-
pleted tenth grade work in the public
schools, or its equivalent. The time
spent at a college is deducted from
the four years' experience required
provided the work amounts to not less
than fifteen hours of laboratory work
and not less than ten hours of other
instruction weekly . during two full
collegoate years of nine months each.
Registered druggists, must be eigh-
teen years of age, must have had two
years' practical experience of the
same nature as above, and must pre-
sent evidence of having completed
tenth grade studies in the public
schools or its equivalent. Not more
than one year of attendance at a
school of pharmacy of the grade stated
above is deducted from the practical'
experience required of registered drug-
gists. The full time spent at this
School of Pharmacy is, however, de-
ducted from the experience required.
This provision enables graduates of
the two year course to secure regis-
tered druggists license at once. All
candidates must pass the examination
of the Board of Pharmacy.
When this state law was framed,
the School of Pharmacy was given the
opportunity of inserting a clause
which would have pernitted its gradu-
ates to register without examination,
but Dr. Prescott declined, stating that
if our graduates could not pass the
examination we wanted to know it.
The Aristolochite.
The Aristolochite is an honorary so-
ciety. It is purely a student organiza-
tion, but to become a member the can-
didate must have the approval of the
faculty of the School of Pharmacy.

The influence which this school has
had on pharmaceutical education may
be best illustrated by noting the posi-
tions held by some of its graduates,
as shown by the following list:
The following are deans or direc-
tors of colleges and schools of phar-
macy: E. R. Miller, Ph.C., B.S., De-
partment of Pharmacy, Alabama Poly-
technic Institute; Homer C. Wash-

B.S., Ph.D., College of Pharmacy, Uni-

Valle, Ph.C., B.S., College of Phar-
macy, -Puerto Rico.
The fact that this school of phar-
macy prepares its students for re-
sponsible positions in life may be
seen from the positions held by those
who have graduated during the past
ten years.
