(Hutchinson NewMJPI Telephoto) BIG TEX — In case you haven't seen a 'real Texan,' take a look at Big Tex. He wears size 70 boots and a 75 gallon hat and when he's put together he stands 52-feet high. Here, Richard Conger, pauses before starting the big put together job. Big Tex, with his size 276 blue jeans, looks over the State Fair of Texas, in Dallas, every year for two weeks. Seek Return of Family Druggist BALTIMORE (AP) - Remember the old wood-paneled, j a r-filled apothecary? The white-haired town pharmacist sitting down to chat about your rash or backache? Since those days, the changing role of the druggist in the burgeoning pharmaceutical industry has cast him before the public as little more than an impersonal dispenser of pills. The University of Maryland, in an annual student pharmacy program just three years old, hopes to remake this image of the corner druggist and give the nation's overburdened physicians a helping hand as well. "We want people to select a family pharmacist as they would a family doctor," says William J. Kinnard Jr., dean of the university's School of Pharmacy. Make Hospital Rounds Pharmacy students are now making hospital rounds with doctors, talking to patients about drug reactions and seeing the results of the drugs they dispense. Traditional courses in cat anatomy have been scratched for human anatomy. Courses dealing with the history of pharmacy and communications were abandoned. Kinnard believes the shift in emphasis has long been needed, citing the gap between the physician's knowledge of drugs and the high number of unfavorable drug reactions suffered by patients both in and outside the hospital. Dr. James Freston, head of clinical pharmacology at thej University of Utah, reported' that between $5 billion and $6 billion is spent each year untangling problems caused by adverse drug reactions. The Maryland program intends to eliminate some of these problems by keeping better tabs on both drugs and patients, while forging a closer working bond between druggist and physician. The new five-year program includes two years of general studies and two years of basic science. The fifth year eliminates the traditional pharmacy apprenticeship--warking in a drug store-to give the students experience in community and hospital pharmacies. "We trained wrong in the past," said Kinnard. "We educated in isolation, and never once did the student have to take courses or work with other health professionals. He was not educated in patient-acre areas." Radical Modifications Among radical modifications at Maryland is the "extern" program which places students in various pharmacies approved by the school. Students work with the professional pharmacist and get no academic credit for the ex perience, but the school is assured through standards and checks that the students are not assigned to non pharmacy chores. These and other changes in the pharmacy training program have stirred mixed feelings among the 47 students in the upcoming 1972 graduating class.
