WOMEN OBTAIN VIEWS OF MEN ,IN ASSEMBLY Grow Indignant When Told of Surroundings of the Men tally Deficient. VOTERS’ LEAGUE ACTIVE Indignation waxed high among the members of the League of Women Voters at a conference with the Marion County legislative delegation yesterday in the Chamber of Commerce when James L. Kingsbury, a Representative, stated that many people mentally iefiicient are placed In the county Jail, which, as he expressed It. “is Tery much like treating a person with a violent sick headache by con fining him in a boiler factory.” The women d'ecussed Informally the measures they will advocate in the coming session of the Assembly. Mr. Kingsbury is working in the In terest of a measure that will give better care to the Insane. “People who are in sane,” he said, "are ouly sick mentally. ' and what they should have is medical at tention and decent surroundings. Sixty per .cent of the people sent to our Insane hospitals are sent home cured or in a decidedly improved condition so that they ! may safely live with their people. There rre over 50 000 mentally deficient In the State, and ton small a number are getting proper attention in public institutions." LEGISLATION “TRICKY.” Mr. Kingsbury will also indorse various measures concerning the profiteering problem, especially as to the coal situa tion. He warned the women that legis lation was a tricky proposition and that the women should study carefully the | bills and men back of them to see tiat there is not a catch somewhere, “for the biggest thing that a man can do in the Legislature is to kill unwise legislation.” Robert E. Moorhead, Senator-elect, said he was particularly interested in the high rent situation and would advocate a bill fixing the fair valuation to be placed on rental property and the placing of a fixed rate of interest on the money in vested in the property. Twelve per cent of the value, he stated, should be on an average a fair rental. Another bill which Mr. Moorhead is de- i cidedly interested In is a measure to be backed by. the American Legion for the education of the adult foreigner in the principles of Americanism. worm ABOLISH SERVICE COMMISSION'. Representative Oraer U. Newman ex pressed himself as actively working for bills favoring the reduction of the high cost of living. Something should be done by the Legislature to relieve the tax bur dens of the people, he said. Rnd he scored the public service commission as an "abomination to the people of Indiana.." He said it was unheard of that public corporations entering Into solemn con tracts should not be called upon to carry out their part. “If they are not able to do so.” he said, “They should be allowed to quit. You women must wake up to the fact that this board should be abolished.” Another statement he made was to the lfect that public State officials are not efficient, that they do not put in enough time, thereby making it necessary to have twice es large a staff of public servants as Is necessary. He urged the women to make a survey of the State house and they would see where a big portion of their money has been going. The Interest of the woman has been concentrated upon ills which concern chiefly women, children, education and citizenship.

INDIANA DAILY TIMES, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 9, 1920, Michigan Croesus Wishes Law Fixing One Fee for Doctors DETROIT, Mich., Dec. 9—lndications are that a bill vitally important to the Michigan medical profession will be in troduced in the coming Legislature, and physicians, led by a large faction of the Wayne County Medical Society, will light its passage. The bill is for the fixing of fees which medical men may charge for their serv ices. According to a prominent Detroit phy sician, the bill is the result of personal pique on the part of a Michigan multi millionaire. It has been the custom of many spe cialists, it is explained, to charge for their services in proportion to the in comes of their patients. Thus, a laborer might be charged a trifling fee for an operation which would cost a wealthy man hundreds or. even thousands. According to this physician, who re fused to allow his name to--be used, th? grandson of the multimillionaire in ques tion was recently operated on for toil siiitis at an Anu Arbor The surgeon charged a seq based on the grandfather's wealth. Angered at the size of tlie bill, he threatened to obtain a law fixing a definite scale. AIDS IN STREET MARKING.
