PAGE FOUE CATTARAUGUS REPUBLICAN WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 26. 1927 INTERFERED ONLY WITH DEATH RATE,” SAYS MISS WHEELER Scathing Reply to County Medical Society’s At­ tacks on State Charities Aid Association— Graphic Story of Fight for Health extending over 55 Years. (Continued from JPage One) L IN D Y E N D S G R E A T T O U R The average audience a t the open air meetings which he addressed numbered about 20 , 000 . Local newspaper counts have been used as a basis fo r the estimate that he ad­ dressed 2 , 000,000 persons directly. Many of his speeches -vVere- broadcast by radio, increasing his audience immensely. One of the scores of gifts to Col­ onel Lindbergh from his various hosts was a portrait of his mother presented by business men of Fort W orth, Texas. The portrait was the world, a t Albany; new divisions in the State Health Departm ent on child hygiene, venereal diseases, pub­ lic health nursing, and others; which together have placed New York state in the forefront of the states in the union in the protection of health. Did All This “Just Happen” ? Now, did all of this just happen? N o t a t all. The prime mover was this same State Charities Aid Associa­ tion, which suggested the appoint­ m e n t of a commission, placed its staff a t the service of the commission, helped to fram e the new law, and se­ cured support for it everywhere in the state. History records the fact th a t the chairman of the Committee on Legislation of the State Medical Society was among the very few who appeared in opposition. Many indi­ vidual physicians supported i t , ‘great m en and true, but the weight of the organization which was supposed to represent them was recorded on the wrong side. Is there a single person in the entire state of New York who would wish for a moment to return to the health conditions of 191-J? Quashing Quacks Coming now seven years later to 1920: One fine morning during the legislative session, Health Commis­ sioner Biggs, the State Medical So­ c ie t i e s , and the State Departm ent of Education, woke up to find that a bill had reached the Governor’s desk which would give state recognition and license to chiropractors, perm it them to call themselves “doctors”, and to boast state approval and li­ cense for such claim. The State Charities Aid Associa- ' fcion’s Committee on Tuberculosis and Public Health was well aware that this would not only be bad for the medical profession, but would be ex­ trem e ly bad for the people of the state, who would not know when they were getting attention from a real doctor, and when they were falling into the hands of a fake doctor. The State Charities Aid Association ral­ lied the voluntary health forces of the State in opposition to the approval of the bill, provided educational ma­ terial to the press throughout the state as to the real nature and harm- fulness of the bill, secured delega­ tions from the various counties to ap­ pear before the Governor in opposi­ tion, and working together with the State Medical Society, and health and education authorities, the bill was killed. It has been necessary, by sim ilar methods, to kill it each year since, and it h as been done by like co­ operative effort. A Model Medical Practice Act Still more im p o rtant: Six years later the State Charities Aid Asso­ ciation, th a t “interfering body,” one of those lay organizations whose ■work is so “inept,” was specifically requested by the Legislation commit­ tee and the president of the State Medical Society to assist it in secur­ ing the passage of a much-needed Medical Practice Act. The State Medical Society had tried for years to secure such a law, but without success. The medical profession was misunderstood by the Legislature and by the people; it was thought to be working in its own interests, instead of in the interests of the health of the people. I distinctly remember when this subject was brought by a representative of the State Medical Society before the Executive Commit­ tee on Tuberculosis and Public Health for discussion and action. Our decision was to throw every Dunce, of our strength back of the State Medical Society, and the State H ealth Department, and the State D epartm ent of Education, in support of the Medical Practice Act. Every County Committee on Tuberculosis and Public Health was urged to ap­ prove the bill, and to enlist the sup­ port of its local representatives in the Legislature. The -fight was not an easy one, for all the chiropractors, naturopaths, drugless healers, quacks and such like were arrayed against the bill. It was a m a tter of life and death for them ; they had huge in­ terests a t stake, and were well aware of it. Unhappily, three im portant County Medical Societies also op­ posed the bill, breaking away from the parent state society. The Coun­ ty Tuberculosis organizations pre­ sented a solid front a t the meetings before the Legislative committees >nd the Governor. They were re-en­ forced by the great “lay organiza­ tions,” interested in health, from New York City, the Association for Improving the Condition of the Poor, the nursing organization, t h e neighborhood associations, and so on.

The trains which collided were 340, east bound and 341, west bound, both freights. The responsibility of the disaster is laid to the train dispatcher, who ordered 340 to Carrollton w ithout holding 341 at that place until her arrival. There was a dense fog along the river Wednesday morning, and the engineers were unable to see their danger until the trains were almost upon each other. Engineer Beekhorn of train 341, and his fireman, were able to jump from the cab, and escaped with slight injuries, but the train men of 346 were not so fortunate. Conductor J. C. Cooney received serious internal injuries, fireman Janies Hankins had his left leg crushed, and a brakeman named J. C. McFarland, was badly injured in the chest. Engi­ neer Mills was injured about the head and shoulders but not seriously. Conductor Cooney was found under a box car, and had to be cut out from the wreck.” “The new letter sheet envelope consists of a piece of heavy paper, plain on one side, with the postage stamp, etc., printed on the other.

In the first district' the registration is 664; in the second district 603; totals 12C7. In the third district personal registration is not required. The large registration is undoubtedly due to the license question.” “The W ait Avenue Sewing Club pleasantly surprised Sir. and Mrs. Mf. L. Coston, the occasion being their loth wedding anniversary. Mr. and Mrs. Coston were presented with a cut glass berry set.” “Mrs. Alice Markell is in Olean today to assist a t an at hom# given by Mrs. Nellie C.
