No Promincuou. Vaccination.
. Vim Laura Watklns. employed at
a store at Kit Kast Pratt street, waa
before Justice l/eecn at the Eastern
police station yesterday chanced
with refusing to he vaccinated. She
declined to show her arm to Dra. J.
W. Lubehausky and Oilman S.
Evans nt the Health department.
tlefore the magistrate she stated
that she objected to baring her arm
to any one who might call «nd re
present himself ,as a physician.
<<he said she was willing to be vac
cinated, but It must be done by her
family physician. Dr. rrank C.

her vaccinated the lady In the sta

give Dr. Bvans a certificate of vac

1 At this Juncture Dr. Ilressler became
Indignant, and demanded to know
from Dr. Evans why he would not
: accept the certificate. Dr. Rvans
only replied that he would not re
ceive the paper. Dr. Breesler then
said he would make Dr. Kvans or
Health Commissioner C. lUmpson
acknowledge the paper, but Justice
I*erh settled the argument by say-
Ing that he would accept the cer
tificate and dismiss the lady.
Dr. Hressler Iritlmated that some
physicians who are vaccinating are
over-Interested In women's arms.
Dr. Evans replied that he thought
Dr. Brensler was a gentleman of too
much Intelligence to make such re
mark. Justice Leech asked the
gentlemen "to stop the controversy.
