Locnl Druggists Are Going After Next Annual Convention of Pliarnvn ' cists. An earnest effort Is to be made to bring the next convention of the state druggists' association to this city and Pendleton pharmacists will go to Long Beach In July with the intention of capturing that honor for Pendleton. "No session of the druggists' asso ciation has ever been held In eastern Oregon and we think it is time this section of the state Is being recogniz ed," declared A. C. Koeppen today. Acting upon the desire to have their fellow pharmacists come here the Koeppen brothers and other local men are planning a little campaign to that end. The session this year will be held at Long Beach on July 7, 8, 9, and 10. At that time the time and place for the next meeting will be de cided upon. While plans have not been fully perfected it is suggested by Mr. Koep pen that a portion of the convention time be passed In this city and the re mainder at Wenaha springs. In many respects the druggists' conventions are more In the nature of outings than business gatherings. While some business is transacted, those In attendance also have much time for pleasure and. it Is believed that the attractions of the Blue moun tain resort will appeal to them. The wives and daughters of the druggists also accompany them upon their an nual gatherings and the sessions are very' pleasant socially. Last year the convention was held at Seaside at the same time as the O. N. G. encampment. WANT INDEPENDENCE NOW.
