Pharmacists Hear Reports
On Newest Drug Advances

Advances in medicine pertinent
to the pharmacist were outlined
in the pharmacy college's annual1
lectures Wednesday.
Dr. E. Richard Harrell, assis-
tant professor of Dermatology
and Syphilology, said that a drug
recently proven useful against
Vitiligo, a disease which removes
skin pigment, may aid people tos
obtain healthy sun tans.
The drug, 8-Methoxypsoralen,
taken along with exposure to ultra
$4,000 Offered'
In Pharmacy
Awards Contest

"Senior and graduate pharmacy
students are eligible to take part
in this year's nationwide Lunsford
Richardson Pharmacy A w a r d s
competition," E. L. Mabry, Presi-
dent of Vick Chemical Company,
has announced.
Aimed at stimulating greater
interest in professional pharmacy,
the Awards program gives four in-
dividual cash awards of $1,000
each to winning students and their
pharmacy colleges, for the best
papers submitted on either of two
general subjects: Pharmacy or
Pharmaceutical Chemistry. Papers
will be judged on literary quality
as well as subject matter.
Deadline for all entries is De-
cember 15, 1956,, while all manu-
scripts must be received by March
3, 1957. Complete details concern-
ing the Awards may be obtained
at the University of Michigan
School of Pharmacy.
Specific objectives of the pro-
gram are the encouragement of
students to explore and investigate
current pharmacy problems, sum-
marize and present their findings
for the benefit of other students
and investigators, and broaden the
scope of their interest in the pro-
fession of pharmacy.
'End of the World'
"The End of the World" is com-
ing - at the Astronomy Depart-
ment Visitor's Night to be held at
8:30 p.m. tonight in Room 2003
of Angell Hall.
After the "End of the World"
talk, conducted by Prof. William
Liller of the Astronomy Depart-
ment, the fifth floor observatory
will be opened to the public. Vis-
itors will be able to view the stars
and planets with telescopes and
binoculars if the night is clear.
Visitors will also be able to in-
spect the Angell Hall exhibits and

violet rays, has the effect of deep-
ening a healthy sunbather's tan
to a "lifeguard" brown.
It is also useful to very fair-
skinned and red-headed persons
who ordinarily become blister-
burned and red as a beet when
exposed to the sun for more than
a short time.
Dr. Harrell reminded the 200
pharmacists present that the drug
is far from drug store shelves.
Some problems yet to be solved
include the possibility of serious
blistering oz' an allergic reaction
resulting in contact dermatitis.
Advances in antibiotics were
discussed by Dr. Philipp Gerhardt,
assistant professor of bacteriology.
Dr. Gerhardt pointed out that
the arsenal of antibiotics has
been continuously enlarged, and
research is strong. Antibiotics
have been specialized, with new-
er ones being developed for speci-
fic infections, replacing many of
the "broad spectrum" drugs.-
Much work is being done in
developing antibiotics to fight
virus and cancer, he said, and their
use has grown effective in pre-
venting many of the very harmful
infections which come after the
advent of rheumatic fever.
The use of two antibiotics to-
gether has been effective, accord-
ing to Dr. Gerhardt. In some cases
their effectiveness has been im-
proved by using them with hor-
mones, such as cortisone.
The pharmacists were reminded,
however, that whenever antibiot-
ics are used for a new purpose, it
is vital that potential dangers be
weighed against the derived bene-
