North Carolina motorists last year
were “gypped’ out of about $210,468
fqr motor ils they never got but paid
for, due to the discovery that fully 81
per cent of the pumps, cups, bottles,
cans and jars used for measuring are
“short” according to C. D. Baucom,
State inspector of weights and mea
sures. Mr. Baucom, who has recently
made a check up, reports that quart
oil bottles are made about four table
spoonsful short and Bince about 6,
750,000 gallons of oils were used in
th« State last year, the loss will reach;
well toward a quarter of a million
dollars. No indictments have beien
made, but faulty measures have been
condemned, Mr. Baucom said*
Raleigh people are excited over the
investigation being made here by the
Senator Nyc committee on campaign
expenditures, in charge of Senator
Patterson, looking into the recent De
mocratic Senatorial primary. Both
Democrats and Republicans, some of
them, say that is is nothing but a
political move or a fiasco, and all are
confident that nothing indicating ex
cessive campaingn expenditures will
be discovered or opened up.

All this week, all over the United States the drug
stores are observing Pharmacy Week.
The idea back of this country wide event is to give
the public a better knowledge of the requirements of the
present-day pharmacist—to let it know something about
the specialized education and the practical training re
quired of the person who compounds medicines and fills
The retail drug business is probably a little different
than most retail lines. With a little experience and capital,
almost any person can open up a retail shop and sell gro
ceries, candies, meats, clothing, furniture and the like.
But the drug business is different. Before a person can
operate a drug store and compound prescriptions he must
pass a rigid examination before a state board of pharmacy.
And before he can even submit to an examination he must
have at least four years of practical experience in the re
tail drug business. And, in addition he must graduate
from a recognized college of pharmacy before the exami
nation can be taken.
The standards of pharmacy are being raised. Edu
cational requirements are more exacting than ever before.
Examinations are more rigid. The idea, of course, is to
keep out the unfit and protect the public. With his broad
training, the pharmacist, as assistant to the physician, is
ever ready to serve you in maintaining good health of the

the $10,000 limit of campaign expen
ditures for the Senatorial nomination,

were worried because they could not
get or supply the funds their work

Although great secrecy attended the
preliminary subpoenas for witnesses
and it is understood several score have
