Attack on Physicians' aim
At Healing Monopoly
Made at Staples
Oregon's 3 6tli Legislative Session Brings
The go-called "basic f t dense'
. bill, which has been considered at
tie last three sessions of the Ore-
. ton legislature, was reref erred to
. the senate committee en medicine.
dentistry and pharmacy yesterday,
after Senator Dunne had charred
that the committee had failed to
hold a public healing on the Diets-
The bill prorldee that any per
son practicing any system or
method ot healing In the state of
Oregon shall hare knowledge of
flye certain fundamental sciences.
Senator Woodward declared
that the bill was offered aa a safe
ty measure, and was not Intended
to'.laterfere with or harpoon any
particular class or group; of prac
tltloeers. He said the measure was
, worthy of serious consideration.
Want Monopoly ..- ;.
. : 'Senator Staples attacked the
-. bill on the grounds that It was
another regulatory measure.
The physicians of this state
want closed corporation, said
Staples, "and they are doing; eT-
erythinf possible to thwart the
ambitions of young men and wom
en who desire to enter the inedi
- cal field. There are now; 22,000
towns of 1000 population in the
United States that hare no pby
sictans. - 1 -! -
"If the physicians want to
" regulate their profession - why
don't they keep ont the unscru
pulous doctor. Two lobbyists are
now In Salem In the interest of
the "basic science' bill.; and I
hare been adrlsed that . f 20,000
has been raised to pnt It over. It
merely Is a case of physicians at
tempting to. regulate persons out
side of their profession. These
physicians should clean their own
skirts Oefore attempting to clean
those of others. i
"In case this bill is! approred
the physicians of Oregon will hare
a closed corporation which Is not
desired by the public. They will
next attempt to regulate the Chris
tian Scientist," - 1
v Senator Staples did not mince
words la denouncing the eye, ear
and nose specialist.

feature was denied by railroads.
E. J. Ellington, Eugene, repre
senting, the brotherhoods, opened
the argument la faror of the
measure at the public hearing be
fore the railroads and utilities
committee of the senate. ; lie cit
ed: the Arizona law, upon which
the proposed legislation la pat
terned, as resulting ia' increased
safety to workers. Two elements
of danger are inTolred la permit
ting longer than 70 cars. Uncon
trolled slack in long trains, and
difficulty la ' transmitting a signals
from the caboose to the engine.
Increase accidents, he asserted.
' ; Arthur :jl" Hampson, attorney
for the Southern Pacific railroad
appeared as first speaker for
those opposed to the bill. - He de
clared the control of transcontin
entaT trains was a matter Tor ot
tional congress,' and that this body
had, not' considered - length of
trains as a menace to safety. lo
other state in the Union outside
of Arison a, has sach a law, and
he' did -not believe safety of train
workmen necessitated legislation.
1 I A refuting the "statement that
long trains were hazardous; ' he
cited records-of the Southern Pa
cific during -1930. in- Oregon, stat
ing 'there was no. reportable acci
dent daring the entire year from
train orer 70 cars in length, and
cone' on passenger trains. On the
entire 8. P. system bf more than
f.OOO miles, Hampson said re
cords show - that more accidents
ocenred oa short trains than long
ones, oa a ratio basis. v - ,
