ENTERTAINMENT. The entertainment features of the Detroit convention were on a very large scale, owing to the unusual attendance due to the joint meetings of the A. Ph. A. and the Michigan State Association.

The entertainment program was carried out in detail as planned. On Tuesday afternoon the ladies were the guests of Nelson Baker & Co., on a trip to Bois Blanc Island, supper being served on board the boat. The following afternoon a card party was given them in the Hotel Ponchartrain. On Wednesday evening the ladeis were the guests of The F. A. Thompson Co., and F. F. Ingram Co., at a theater party at Temple Theater. Thursday afternoon all sessions were suspended and everybody took the river excursion given by the Parke-Davis Company. A stop was made at the plant for an inspection trip, where the crowd was broken up into small parties and escorted over the immense Parke Davis plant by members of the pharmaceutical staff. A special boat was chartered for the occasion. The trip was continued up the river to the beautiful flats. Supper was served on the boat, the ladies being presented with American Beauty roses while the men enjoyed cigars. Friday afternoon everybody was taken on an automobile sight-seeing trip through the city, the parks and through Belle Isle. The gracious hospitality of their Detroit hosts left little chance for A. Ph. A. members to feel as strangers within their gates, and the formal vote of thanks but faintly expresses the appreciation of one and all for the warmth of their reception and the lavish entertainment.
