TIlE MICHIGAN DAILY THURSDAY,
Health Service Running Its Own
Unique, Specialized Pharmacy
Has Filled Prescriptions In
Over 17,000 Cases For
By HAROLD GARN
You would hardly recognize the
Health Service pharmacy as a drug
store because it is devoid of the usual
standard equipment. There isn't a
pin game, soda fountain, cigar coun-
ter or magazine stand within its walls,
but still it is one of the most popular
places on the campus.
During the first eight months of
the school year, 17,514 prescription
bottles and vials were filled and dis-
pensed, Arthur Gibson, pharmacist of
the Health Service, said yesterday.
"It is doubtful whether any other
college health service pharmacies of-
fer such extensive service as that of
Michigan's pharmacy," he declared.
"The pharmacy has grown very rap-
idly, from a few pine board shelves
and a part-time pharmacist, to the
place where it now employs four reg-
istered pharmacists, three of whom
are students working their way
through school who are employed on
a part-time basis."
Past Year Busy
The pharmacy not only fills pre-
scriptions, but supplies over 3,000
items a month to the Health Service
physicians, and these are dispensed
by the physicians to their student
patients, Mr. Gibson stated. The
pharmacy has filled a much larger
number of prescriptions this school
year than during the same period last
year, he said.
"An extensive prescription stock is
carried which enables the pharmacy
to compound practically any prescrip-
tions written by the Health Service
or University Hospital physicians," he
declared. "Where reasonably pos-
sible, the pharmacy will fill prescrip-
tions written by the student's home
physician. It is necessary, however,
to have the permission of one of the
Health Service physicians," he ex-
Few students consider the amount
of money that they save by being
able to have their prescriptions filled
at the Health Service, he asserted.
"Out of several hundred prescription
items, there are at present, about 38
expensive proprietory items and spe-
cialties that the pharmacy charges
for on a cost basis. These are such
that the pharmacy can exercise no
control over the cost, but must pur-
chase them from reliable pharma-
ceutical houses; such an item is in-
sulin. Among the specialties are a
few items prepared by the pharmacy
for conditions which are not urgent,
and because they are used in large
amounts we must charge a modest
fee," he stated.
"As a result of two years of ex-
perimental work, a radically new
method of manufacture of ointments
has been developed in the pharmacy
in cooperation with physicians," Mr.
The German department of the
University announces again the
Bronson-Thomas prize, an annual
award of $30 given on the basis of
a three-hour essay contest to be
held under the departmental super-
vision in the early part of April.
Gibson declared. "These ointments
are not obtainable elsewhere, and un-
like the older type of ointments are
practically greaseless, non-staining,
and will wash off very easily," he
said. "This new method of manu-
facturing ointments developed here,
takes advantage of the process of,
emulsification which results in oint-
ments that are stable, cream-like,
and greaseless. They should proveI
a boon to those who are compelled
to use this type of medication, and
it is hoped that we shall be able
to perfect the methods of manufac-
ture so that they will become avail-
able for use soon. For the conven-
ience of the user the material will
be dispensed in tubes," he explained.

ttYears ago, as an ambitious young
actor, I was impressed how well my
throat liked Luckies and how well
they suited my idea of a perfect
cigarette. That impression still
stands. Inmy recent tour of Hamlet',
with its many performances each
week and the attendant trax on my
throat, I have been convinced anew
that this light smoke is both delight-
ful to my taste and the top' ciga-
rette for an actor's throat."

~An independent survey was made recently
among professional men and women -lawyers,
doctors, lecturers, scientists, etc. Of those who said
they smoke cigarettes, more than 87% stated they
personally prefer a light smoke.
Mr. Howard verifies the wisdom of this pref-
erence, and so do other leading artists of the
radio, stage, screen and opera. Their voices are
their fortunes. That's
why so many of
smoke Luckies. You, too, can have the throat pro-
tection of Luckies-a light smoke, free of certain
harsh irritants removed by the exclusive process
it's Toasted". Luckies are gentle on the throat. "THE CR
EAM OF THE CROP"
