STAR and NEWS Quick-Action WANT ADS Get Fast Results Hook Drugs Inc., operators of 50 stores throughout Indiana, has grown at nearly a store-a-year pare since 1900 and has a goal of 75 stores by I960. A. F. (Bud) Hook, son of the founder, is president and Edward J. F. Roesch, whose father was general manager of the chain, is vice-president of the rapidly-expanding firm of drug stores. Hook's father, John A. Hook, opened the first store on the corner of South East and Prospect streets in 1900 and was joined by Roesch who took over management of the second store, located at 356 East Washington Street. UNDER THE joint leadership of the two men the chain grew' from an Indianapolis operation to'a state-wide chain of stores. Although vast changes in the drug store business have taken place over the years.

Ej,f8h' the prescription department the heart of the stores has been perpetuated and interwoven into the fabric of modern merchandising. Hook and Roesch are both registered pharmacists and have worked their way through the various echelons of the business. The company now has more than 1,000 employes and an annual advertising budget of more than $325,000. IN THE EARLY days of the chain, Hook said, the pharmacist actually manufactured as well as dispensed drugs using natural remedies such as plants, roots and leaves which were then popular in the cure or relief of illness. Later, pharmaceutical houses began to take over more and more of medicines that had been compounded by the druggists as a means of bringing about standardization of the quality and effectiveness of the drugs. Natural result of this trend, Hook said has been the development of larger drug stores to handle the constantly growing number of drugs land pharaceuticals being produced. Tanner & Co. Leads Sheet Metal Field Eighty continuous years in i business, the sheet metal firm ' of Tanner & Co. originally im-i ported tin plate from Wales under the name of Tanner, Sullivan and Talbot, i That was in 1877. The late : George C. Tanner acquired ! one of the founder's interests j in 1904, and changed the com-I pany's name to its present 1 identification. In fact, the firm 1 manufactured pieced tinware ! for a period of years before the advent of stamping machines made the process obso- lete. SHIFTING TO sheet metal : later, the company also en- gaged in the steel warehous- ing business from 1934 until : the division was sold to the V. J. Holliday Division of . Jones & Laughlin Corporation. Since that time, fabrication of sheet metal items for the building industry has been emphasized and the firm has he-come the largest industry of its type in Indiana. Prospects for a continuation of the highly successful business throughout 1958 are promising, according to Henry C. Thomson, who has headed the firm since 1918. nnrf NPA'S Ovick-AliM W-inf AOS 'cury vnuf lain msng.
