The Optometry Bill. I
The medial profession and the optl- I
clans, or optometrists of Texas are again '
fighting out their old fight of the last I
legislature, xne gpuuuu are iiB"""b
for professional recognition in the
form of a law providing for a state
board similar to the medical board, and
licensed practitioners; the medical pro
fession Is fighting the law, claiming
that optometry Is not a profession.
Th flsrht was broucht into public
light this time by senator Kaufman, of i
Galveston, who introduced a bill whirh.
If passed, will place optometrv on. me
same plane with other professional
callings. The bill provides that no one
may fit glasses except a licensed op
tician who has In every way satisfied
a state board that he Is capable of
pursuing the vocation, or profession.
The M. D.'a claim that optometry is not
a profession, and one of their speakers
made the statement that the fitting of
classes as followed bv most of the
I optometrists tended rather to expert
mechanics tnan a meaicai jtnowieuge.
Those who class themselves as op
tometrists claim that the fitting of
glasses Is a business separate from the
medical profession, and that defects in
the eye due to physical ailments are
cases for the physician and not for the
fitter of glasses.
Both the socalled optomertists and
physicians before the committees pro
fessed they are actuated by a desire
tc protect humanity from the practice
The bill is similar to one introduced
at the last legislature and which was
so bitterly fought by the state medical
board. The physicians claim that in
asmuch as eye defects are due to physi
cal ailments which may be remedied by
the physician, the licensing of optomer
tists gives to a class of men who knew
nothing of medicine a standing they do

The mining school at the University
of Texas was given up four years ago
because of the fact that at Austin the
school was not needed. During the few
jears in which the school was in op
eration, there were graduated a num
ber of men who have since become em
inent as mining engineers, and the
only reason the school was not contin
ued was that the limited number of
students did not make the necessary
outlay and expenditure for the upkeep
of the school feasible.

banking system is only a means of
gathering In the people's money for the

should be accepted as security.

should be any restriction on a man
slaughtering his own cattle and hope
to have the license law repealed.

session of this legislature, but some

14.000 aores of school land under cul

what would have happened had ' the
normal taken all but J.000 acres of
