MEIIDICAL SOCIETY AFTER OCULISIS Said to be Investigating Charges of "Holding-Up" the Makers of Glasses. That the Orleans Parish Medical So ciety has bee ninvestigating whether oculists receive a commission on pre scriptions filled by optometrists was learned Friday. There appeared in the columns of The Times-Picayune recently, in the "Letters from People," a communica tion signed by Dr. David C. Williams, a local optometrist, in which it was not only charged that local occulists received a commission from the op tometrists on prescriptions filled, but that in certain cases this commission had been exacted in a charity treat ment. The Orleans Parish MedAcal So ciety, believing the charges were grave began to investigate. It is said sev eral local optometrists were invited to appear before the judiciary commit tee of the society, and tell what they knew of the matter and that Dr. Wil liams was summoned and did place be fore the society certain evidence or charges. There has been some objection on the part of certain optometrists against occulists manufacturing their own glasses. This objection is not based upon any opposition to the oc culists doing the work, but upon the fact that while the optometrists pay a license fee to engage in this branch of the business, the oculists pay no license. It is believed that the matter will be up for discussion at the next meet ing of the Louisiana State Optical So ciety. No action has been taken by that body so far. t MRS. AMELIA SMITH FORGED FATHER LARIKN'S NAME. The police are searching for two men, who on March 6. called at three paint stores and obtained gold leaf paint'and brushes valued at $54.35 on a forged order signed with the name of Rev. Father Thomas J. Lar kin, pastor of the Church of the Holy Name of Mary. Rev. Father Cassagne, pastor of the church, told the police that on the preceding day a strange man was seen stro ling about the church grounds. He asked the man what was wanted, whereupon the stranger exhibited sketches of the dome of the Terminal Station at Atlanta and of the sanctuary of a church, saying he was an intinerant decorator and was seeking employment. It is be lieved that it was this man, with a companion, who secured the paints and brushes on the forged order. It is not known how he obtained the letter heads of the Holy Name of Mary church, upon which the forged orders were written. From the Gulf Paint Co., 408 Car ondelet street, one of the men ob tained goods valued at $1%; from the Augustin Paint Co., 322 Baronne street, the same individual obtained goods valued at $17.10, while from the Bernhardt Paint Co., another in dividual-evidently a pal of the other-obtained goods valued at $1,.25.
