Juneau, Alaska, May 15.-The
Alaskan legislature devoted consid
-erable attention during its recent
session to the promotion of educa
tion. It passed two important meas
ures ,along that line.
One is the "normal high school
act," which provides that school
boards directing accredited high
schools are authorized to establish
teachers' training courses. Such
courses are to be of two years' dura
tion, beginning with the fourth year
of the high school training and ex
tending through the additional fifth
year. The object of the act is to
encourage young women of Alaska
to become teachers.
A textbook commission is created
by the other measure which the leg
islature adopted. This commission is
to consist of the commissioner of
education and two legally qualified
teachers of Alaska, who shall be
c'hosen by the governor.
Speaking recently before the lli
nois Manufacturers' Costs associa
tion in the gold room of a big Chi
cago hotel, John H. Kirby proposed
the organization of a secret society
to fight union labor. He is quoted
as having said:
"A cabinet officer has sent emis
saries all over the country, presuin
ably aiding industry, but really pros
elyting for the American Federation
of Labor. 'fis agents have no right
to comiie into your industries, creat
ing disturbances between employers
"After the war in the south, we
organized the Klu-'Klux Klan to put
cal petbaggers out of business and
we should organize to end carpet

these days of bolshevik propaganda,
unrest and disturbance? Should we
not take counsel and protect our

methods without being indicted? If
lie can, we might as well admit that
these laws are on our statute books
to hit at the working class only. We
might as well admit that violence
to maintain conservation is all right.
whereas preaching violence as a
means of reform is all wrong.
But the country cal not be main
iained on this class distinction. If

may expect in the words of Shake

"have violent ends."

MAKING OVER I
THE DOCTORS j
"Doctors belong to the working
class and ought to become class-con
scious. Medical and surgical treat
ment is destined either to be handled
by the state, or else through a syn
dicalist grouping of doctors organ
ized at the point of production, or
else through coln:,lnuers' co-oper
This was sotme of the dynamnite
gently dropped into the midst of King
county physicians and surgeons last
Saturday night by Dr. Warbasse. But
so good-naturedly was it done that
the doctors with one or two excep
tions, agreed with the em'nent sur
geon and co-operator.
For Dr. James P. W\arbasse, who
has been lecturing in Seattle on co
operation, and who gives his last
lecture of the series this evening in
the Y. 31. C. A. auditorium on The
Philosophy of Co-operation, is not
only the president of the Co-operative
League of America, but a very famous
surgeon, author of a three-volume
work on Surgical Treatment. He
lectured to the Seattle Surgical so
ciety and the King County Medical
society an Medical Reconstruction,
and told them the economic back
ground underlying present day medi
cine and surgery.
"I Didn't Start the War."
Only one person present took no
table exception to the doctor's views.
A well-known old-timer, known to be
connected with big corporations. and
flourishing in some heat a green edi
tion of the Union Record in which
Dr. Warbasse had been reported, de
clared that "no matter how great
a man may be in his own profession,
he has no right to agitate class-hat
"I didn't start the war," protested
Dr. Wa'rbassee most anliably amid
laughter and applause. "1 didn't
start all this labor unrest. I'm just
telling you that it's here; and you
have to recognize its existence."
Change Conmes F~'roml the Ioo'r.
"The world is in a state of flux
and everything about tis is due for a
change, whether we like it. or not.'
said Dr. WVarbasse in part. "This
change is coming about through the
unrest of tlhe poor, the ignorant, the
uncultured. All changes and all prog
ress have come that way.
"We doctors are a conservative
lot. We would rather go up to a fine
house and ha've the door opened to
us by a butler, than to climb three
flights of stairs to a tenement room
where there are ino convenience.. to
"We like to have the rich and cul
tured for patients, and gradually we
cast in our lots with theirs. But if
the cultured and the well-to-do nice
people had had their way in the past,
we would still be back in the middle
ages. If they could have their way
in the present, there would be no
p:ogress. All change comes froin the
pressure of the discontented, the
poor, the uncultured.
Competition Blights the D)octor's.
"The present competitive systemll
poisons the high ideals of our pro
fession. How often I have seen fine!'
young men, well educated, (omile forth.
from the hospitals with fine ideals
of service. We cast theml into a whirl
pool where they !are forced to maklre a
living from human suffer ing and to
compete with -othetr doctors for the
chance to do it.
"1 see them putting on a fine cx
lerior, better offices than they 'call
afford. an automobile before Ihey
need one, joining clubs mind churches
for economic reasons. losing their
fine idealism of seivice.
"The competitive systlem is waste
ful of money and time. Doctors are
on duty 24 hIours a day; they cross
and criss-cross the towni fromn one
end to another. No one doctor can
afford to have all thle equlilpmnent nec
essary for tihe practicte of mnedicine.
Very few, for instance, can afford inl
X-ray lmachine, and the miaeclines
that are bought by doctors are idle
most of the time, when they mightl
be kept constantly busy if used co
Doctors Hired by Government.
"In England before the war 20
per cent of the doctors were employed
by the government. Now 70 per cent
are so employed in a vast system of
state-controlled medicine. In New
York state a bill for the state to take
charge of the medical profession has
passed one house of the legislature.
This war has shown us the spectacle
of 20.000.0)00 men all receiving mned
ieal, surgieal and nursing care from
"On the other hand, governnlent
controlled medicine is far fronl ideal.
It is bureaucratic and tdoes not mlake
for the highest expressions of indi
vidual initiative and progress.
Other Ways of Socializing Medicine.
"Another possibility is for doctors
to organize into groups to control the
practice of medicine at the point of
production. This is what the -Mayo
brothers in Rochester have done. It
is known among the workers as lithe
"There is also the nletlhod of guild
socialism, very popular in Eungland.
'This, applied to mtedicine. would
imean that the governmenlt would
own the hospitals, and the equip
ment, but that the doctors would or
ganize to control their own work and
"Still a fifth possibility is through
co-operation. as carried on ill Bel
gillln and parts Of Eungland, where
hlie consumlers, or in other words the
patients, organize in large groups and
hire a whole staff of sptecialists to
take care of thetn. The trouble with
this from the doctor's standpoint is
thati the patients would try to get us
Mixed Syndicralism and ('o-operat ion.
"The best methold would prolibably
be a mlixture of co-operation and synl

doctors organized to maintain their
Lively and favorable discussion
followed the address. ()One of the old
est men in the profession slated thatl
lie hlad studied the matter for many
years, and that "as far aits I alll con

and like !he present system very well,
but 1 know it is not the proper metll
od of caring for the sick, and I hope
to10 see the younger dloctors pass oiti
to a better inethod."
"Is this mneeting going to end in
ipleasant talk. or shall we hiave silne
action?" asked another well-known
Ilhysician. "What is our first step?"
"Recognize i hat you are wolrkers,'
