JSJL .PASO JiJEKALiU Ltfo? is Strict Against Health Cards To Women Considerable excitement attended the publication In The Herald Thurs day that certain El Paso doctors had been issuing certificates of health to women who are plying' their trade among; the men of 3i Paso, and many were the surmises as to what the grand Jury or the officials of the county and the 1 Paso County Medi cal society woald do. Many people did not Know that It as against the law for doctors to Isue such certificates. However, the state law is very plain upon the sob- isct, and Dr. T. J. McGamant. county ealth officer, has Issued warning to the doctors, through the El Paso bounty Medical society, several times regarding the matter. As an tvidence In at least one case that a deliberate effort was made to violate the law, the certificate of health carried by the woman was ad dressed to her employer. It stated that she was in good health. When evidence was adduced that she had used the certificate in solicitation, her employer was consulted, and declared that he had never asked her for a certificate of health, and that she had never shown him any such certificate. The law upon the subject, section 10, of chapter 85, general laws of the 4th called session of the Texas legis lature of 1918. says: ''Physicians, surgeons and all other health officers are prohibited from issuing certificates of freedom from venereal disease, provided this section shall not prevent the issuance of statements of freedom from infectious disease, written tn such form, or given under such safeguards, that their use for solicitation . . . would be Impos sible - ROCKEFELLER AND GARY WILL NOT VISIT EL PASO The chamber of commerce is looking ."'around for some prominent man to y come to e;i r'aso and deliver tne prin cipal address before the annual din ner of that organization.

It was born through the efforts of friends of Dr. Byron S. Black to secure his release from prison, where he is now serving a 30 day sentence on a charge of spractlefsg medicine without a license," but ft is to be made a permanent society, the mem bership to be composed of those who believe In the new science of healing. New quarters are to be- secured for the meetings, as it was Impossible to accommodate all who desired to at tend, at the last meeting in the office of Dr. Black. J. T. Robinson Is chairman of the organization, J. T. GUIett, of Canu tillo. is secretary and P. R. Franklin is the treasurer. Offers of Aid. It has been definitely decided that Dr. Black's two sentences of ten days in prison will run concurrently and he will get his liberty Sunder. P. G. Peters, of Capital. N. SL. sent $5 to Dr. Black in hla cell at the county jail today and asked him to use it in defence of his caff The writer said he did not know the doc tor, but. from what he had read in The Herald of his case, he believed him right and wanted to help him. A letter from T. F. Rogers, of- 2725 Sacramento street, which also reached Dr. Black Friday, asked that a copy of the petition for the doctor's pardon be furnished him so that he might get some signatures to it. j Approve llerald's Stand. I want to enter a year's snbscrin- tion for The Herald," said Idss GUIett. m i annTiiin larian mar an t svairw J were as fearless of the med leal trust as von nave oeen tn diTMtiniF Rvrnn U Black. I wish to state that I am personally acquainted with the chiro practor and hare been a patient of nw. jay roomer was cured of a disease of 25 Tears stazMffnz-. She had suffered With sick headaeh and i nao sougnt relief of many, many phy sicians, none or wnoHi ever Denexttted fcir TVr TOaolr rirAil ha. v4hAii drugs. In a very short time. it seems x me 10 oe rar more 01 a crime that a man should be n Jail 2 Ion? days Just because someone who is ashahned to make himself known has socght to persecute him. than that he should practice chiro practy. Who's Responsible!1 "He Is not a doctor of medicine and I believe that If all oar city physicians are as intelligent and fair minded as the few I happen to know. It Is high time that they were calling a halt on this thing-. Let them find the guilty ones of their organization and throw them In jail before the whole medical bunch Is criticised for being: In a conspiracy to rein this young man. "Dr. Black can't get a license In Texas because the law doesn't recog nize his profession. He Is an Intelli gent graduate of the Palmer School of Chiropracty at Davenport. Iowa,! ana unai Texas joins tne other zz states in enacting' laws that do recog nize this science of healing. I think that so long as he Is harming none and curing many, he should be al lowed to practice chiropracty Just as the Christian Scientist, physician, sur geon or osteopath practice their methods. Baby Suffering for Treatment. T want to thank The HeraM for the stand It has taken for Dr. Black, and to say that the beat people ad mire a man or newspaper that stands for what he knows to be right under ail circumstances. raid Mrs. B. F. Kelley. of 1601 Bassett avenue. "I took my baby boy to Dr. Black some one ago. tor paralysis in tne right leg. and. while under his care be gradually Improved, but since he can t get Tjne adjustments, ne is Kettinar 'worse, and I fear that If we can't do something, my baby wOl get back as bad as be was before he be gan the adjustments. "For the sake of suffering human ity. I ask everybody to help us do all we can to stop this unjust persecution f a man who has been a blessing to to many peopie. "I would, also like to ask that every woman pay her poll tax. In order that ane may nave a voice in anjusung rae wrongs tnat we are now eeanng with. Praises Man In Jail Tr. Black has done more for me than any other" man in the world." writes Mrs. Lizzie Bob, of 35 East Missouri street. "When I went to Dr. Black I had suffered for years with my back and many other troubles too numerous to mention. I am glad to tell you that X do not suffer with my oacK any more since taxing nis aa Instments. I have been examined In Colgate. OkUu Sherman. Texas, and 1 Paso, and the case pronounced 1 Hopeless. Ail examinations were maae by the medical profession. I am at this time afcnost free- from all ray ailments." Treated Illm Free. Three months asro I entered the of fice of Dr. Black." said E. O Conn ell. in a letter to The Herald. tod asked to be examined, which was cordially done, and to my surprise I found that I was not to be cross-questioned about my trouble, as the so-called 'lung specialists" generally do to find if they are right. But. Instead. I was deliberately told of my disease and its location and how It could be treated. He did not say that he could cure me in a specified time, as my case Is one that takes a definite time before I can be cured. But I can Justly Bay that he has cured other ail ments that I possessed, such as kid ney trouble, which three months ago kept me awake at night and caused me a great deal of pain while at work and also caused painful sore eyes, which have Improved to such an extent as to be noticed by my ac quaintances. "On my first visit to Dr. Black I told him of the wage that I was eamlnci and that there were two to "rapport at that time on $73 per months he told me that he would, not accept any money, but that I should start to take treat ments at nee, which I did. I feel sore that I am not the only one who haa been helped in such a way." A Doctor's Declaration Tn the past semldark ages there was a little excuse for the persecu tion of a man who thought or did things differently from the old line of thought. said Dr. Robert R. Stew art to The Herald. "Socrates was killed because his advanced teaching broke the -' law. Aristotle was condemned and 'all of the great religious leaders have suf fered on account of breaking the law. "Byron Black has been convicted of practicing medicine and we, as citizens of El Paso, rre ashamed cf the fact that a man who has been doing so much good for the commu nity has to suffer on account of a very small minority who are respon sible for putting him where he is.
