Drugless Healers win out
In Fight Against new
; Medical Control
By the narrow margin of a 16
, i to 14 Tote, ths so-called basic
, science' bill was defeated In the
senate yesterday. - The minority
' . report recommending , that the
bill do ' not pass was carried
shortly,, before, noon. The Tote
' marked, the- end of a fight which
" bagan In the opening days or the
'. session and which has been car
' - ried through seTeral committee
:.1 . hearings and on to the floor of
the senate. ' .
..This bill effects erery person
1 connected with drugless heal
ing. declared Senator Staples
- who led the fight-for adoption
of the minority report- "It" Is
the entering wedge .whereby the
; medical profession hoped to con-
- tlnue - a closed corporation pro-.
. tected only by a diploma. The
demand for this law comes from
V group of so-called specialists
In the city of Portland. . ... Why
, don't the medical profession en
act a few laws for the regulation
. of their own members? - Will we
allow- this pampered group of
physicians educated at the ex
pens of. taxpayers to put a lot
of good men ont of business?
Claims Extensive - ' :j
. . , Ixbby Maintained ; ' -' ":
"The medical - profession - has
malntatned - a large and expen
sive lobby at the capitol, since
.. early : In the legisiatire session.
If this bill is passed It will be
the beginning of the end of all
scientific healing. : What about
the tee-splitters In the medical
profession? There are now 22,
000 towns in the United States
that have no physician because
of the rigid restrictions of the
medicsl group. If you want to
make it impossible foe the young
men and women of this state to
practice an honorable profession
such as drugless beating, pass
this 'bill. I appeal to -you in the
name of humanity to defeat this
Ticions measure." - ;
Senator Booth, co-author of
the bill, denied statements in the
press that he had erer attacked
the Christian Scientists.
."My principal supporter dur
ing1 the recent ; campaign is a
member of -'the Christian
church." said Senator Booth.
"All that we propose to do In
this proposed law is place the
drugless healer on a scientific
basis. I know nothing of fee
splitting as charged by Senator
Taking; any Side
. Senator Booth read a telegram
- from a member of the board of
osteopathic examiners to the ef
fect that the practitioners of
that group had remained neu
tral, and had made no opposition
. to the bill. ; "- . v
" "We . . accepted ; -vwhatl.- we
thought were compromise amend
ments offered ' by the . drugless
, healers. said . Senator Booth.
. 'but X find that, we have the
Same opposition -today as - when
the bill was introduced early in
the session." 1 1
Senator Crawford declared
that he was opposed to the bill
for the reason that it created
another regulatory boards "The
present - statutes accomplish
what would be achieved through
the passage of this bill," said
Senator Crawford. "We are reg-

Oregon's 36th Legislative Session 'Brings
Interesting Personages to Salem
REPRESENTATIVES of . three
leading Oregon ' newspapers
. and the Oregon Voter are
seated In the senate In front of
the reading and bill clerks, fac
ing the audience. They enjoy a
better position to hear addresses
than members of the fourth es
tate In the, British parliament.
There the .pre 3 la seated In a
gallery overlooking the house. It
was to J this gallery that , Burke
addressed his now classle state
ment In which he referred to the
lords, the commoners and the
bishops; and then pointing to the
press; termed it "the fourth es
tate." Burke added that r more
power was given to the fourth es
tate than to the other three. -
' i . .
" In Burke's days the press
wrote la long-hand. The practice
continued through the bulk of
the 19 th century. Reporters who
heard Lincoln's epic "house di
vided against itself speech for
got to take notes, so enthralled
were they by the force of the
speaker's logic and rhetoric
Nowadays - reporters - take tew
notes and except for Fred Tooxe,
Sr., the typewriter Is their pen.
In fact many take notes or write
stories during the progress of de
bate on noiseless typewriters.
Few reporters are good typists;
most use the ."Hunt, and Peck"
system but invariably .the men
are fast writers, numbers of fin
gers employed considered.;-'

Move to Prohibit Property
Tax for State Funds
Loses 32 to 28
Representative James Uott's
house resolution . which would
have permitted the people of Ore
gon to prohibit by constitutional -amendment
-the levying -of direct
taxes for state support, lost 22 to
28 In the lower house yesterday
afternoon ; but , Mott's" leadership
nearly pulled . the m e a s u r e
through.' Observers before the de
bate had thought the bill was
surely doomed to defeat.. - '
.'Mott opened the argument by
vigorous protest- against, the
direct tax as obsolete and unfair.
He said relief came all too slow
ly and urged his . measure as s
direct, necessary safeguard to the
people who under ' such .-eonstltu
tlonal -' safeguard, would4 be able
to blame only themselves for taxes
levied since the direct , taxes
would all be city, " district or
; , Opposition to Mott's resolution
eentered on the unstable attitude
of the people ia voting new tax
measures with which to -carry on
state government. Representa
tives Angell. -Hamilton, and Nor
ton all pointed out .thai the pub
lic's mind. has been fickle In the
matter of the income: tax. and
similar new forms of revenue
raising. ' ' - ' ' : .
Representative ' Angel ' held that
the problem of the direct tax was
not rural alone since farm prop
erty bore only 38 per cent of the
assessment and City owned prop
erty bore 15 per ' cent. Oregon' is'
now 13,000.000 behind in its
state budget; ' to abolish . the.
direct tax' might readily find the
state in debt $11,000,000 In the
next biennlum; he declared.
.. 5 Representative ' Tompkins, de
fending the Mott resolution;
pointed to the wave of unrest
among farmers, elted various
"uprisings" in Oregon and other
states against high property tax
es and said it was high time new
sources of - revenue be depended
upon exclusively for state fi
nance. . .. ".
