Helen Cribb Passes State Pharmacy Exam
Is Now Registered Pharmacist
Qualified to Operate Own Drugstore
Helen I. Cribb may now place "Registered" before her degree of Pharmaceutical Chemist, it was learned last week-end in a letter from Springfield announcing that she passed the state examinations for a registered pharmacist with a high average.
As a registered Pharmaceutical Chemist, she is now qualified not only to fill prescriptions, but also to operate a drugstore of her own. According to her present plans she will remain at Reeves' Drug Store where she has worked the past nine years.
Miss Cribb was the only woman out of last year's class of 150 students in the College of Pharmacy, University of Illinois, Chicago, to qualify for the examination. Eligibility requires four years of work as a registered apprentice in a drug store. Miss Cribb was also one out of seven women to graduate from the course last June, when she received her degree of Pharmaceutical Chemist. She took the state examination which decided whether she could place "Registered" in front of her degree, Jan. 10 at Springfield.
Among other distinctions to her credit, Helen Cribb entirely earned her way through school, working week-ends and summers even while she was attending school in Chicago. She is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Cribb and a graduate of Antioch Township High School.
