Mr. Beringer presented his paper as follows :
FALSE STANDARDS IN PHARMACEITTICAL EDUCATIO
GEORGE M. BERINGER.
The Student of pharmaceutical history cannot fail to note th<
pharmaceutical education in America. Prior to the establishm
schools of pharmacy the education of an embryo- druggist consii
Store experience or practical training acquired by serving an a
ship with some druggist or in the dispensary of a physician and t
book instruction obtained by reading the few books on materia n
chemistry found in the limited library of the preceptor. Until
tively recent years, this was the foundation for the business poss
majority of those engaged in handling drugs. Many of these ol
tices gained a practical knowledge and a Cheap Motrin manual dexterity by ac
rience with some of the processes of pharmacy that are now gi
lected. Their training was that of the store entirely and the
was swung to the extreme of the practical, and for years, ever:

and perseverance and these were compensated by a meagre monetary con-
sideration and a business and moral training under the personal super-
vision of the preceptor. Yet, in those early days the drug business was
considered one of the high and honorable callings and an apothecary was
quite as much respected in his community as is the pharmacist of to-day.
The late William J. Jenks, of Philadelphia, once said to the writer : " The
sons of the very best families in the city used to be brought to us as ap-
prentices." Can we say that to-day?
As a direct Cheap Motrin result of state pharmacy laws and the efforts of Cheap Motrin the, by far
too many, schools of pharmacy, there has been exerted an influence on the '
education of pharmacy and the practice of pharmacy which in some re-
spects is deserving of our highest encomium and in other respects is de-
serving of severe condemnation. The writer is not a pessimist Cheap Motrin nor a
stranger to the problems of the pharmacy and of pharmaceutical educa-
tion of this day and generation, but believes that certain entangling alli-
ances and pedantic efforts are leading pharmaceutical educators and ex-
With the advent of an army of teachers to Cheap Motrin educate the rising generation
of pharmacists there have been inaugurated marked changes in the cur- Cheap Motrin
riculum, character of studies and methods of teaching. Many of these
teachers are specialists and a majority are devoid of any experience what-
ever in the real problems of the drug store and its successful management.
Naturally impractical and pedagogical views are evidenced in their work
and utterance. With all honor to their high ideals and the laudable desire
for advance which we believe actuates them, we cannot close our eyes to
their impracticability and the fact that if their students attempted to put
their teachings into practice 99 out of every 100 would fail in the hurly-
burly of business that accompanies the drug store of to-day.
The attitude of these idealists is only too often that depicted so plainly
by Professor Henry Van Dyke in the following abstract : " The academic
atmosphere has its dangers, of which the greatest are a certain illusion of
infallibility, a certain fever of intellectual jealousy, and a certain dry idol-
atry of schedules and programmes. But these infirmities hardly touch the
mass of students, busy as they are nowadays with their athletics, their societies,
their youthful pleasures. The few who are affected more seriously are usually
cured by contact with the larger world. Most of the chronic cases occur
among those who really never leave the preparatory institution, but pass
from the class to the instructor's seat, and from that to the professorial
chair, and so along the spiral, bounded ever by the same curve and
steadily narrowing inward."
One of the falsities of the modern ( ?) system of pharmaceutic educa-
tion is the deliberate, determined and persistent effort to minimize Cheap Motrin the
value of drug-store training. Schedules and rosters are purposely so
ananged as to occupy most of the time of the student and so preclude
