An attack against the public health activities of Vermont which, characterized them as paternalistic was launched yesterday at the conference of state medical and public health workers held in the roof garden of the Hotel Vermont. There was a "onsuuerable difference of opui: ion among the medical men as to the public health work, and the discussion waxed warm at times. Charges were made that the public health workers. especially, the Vermont. Tuberculosis association and the public - health nurses are taking liberties in the hold ing of climes and the conducting of examinations free of charge, regardless of the ability of patients to pay, and are in other ways interfering with the privileges of the medical profession. In the opinion of a number of mem bers of the State Medical society, this is tending toward the danger of pater nalism in medicine, which, if allowed to continue, will pauperize the people and fix it so they will do nothing to take care of themselves, but will ex-j pert free treatment and free eare. This view was expressed in one form or an other by Dr. C. H. Beecher of Burling ton, Dr. S. W. llammond of Hutland and Dr. B. D. Colby, district health officer of district No. 7, with head quarters in Rutland The culmination of the meeting, which lasted all day, was the carry ing of a motion made by Dr. W. G. Rit:ker of St. Johnsbury, which pro posed that a plan presented by Secre tary C. F. Dalton of the state board of health for a public. health council in Vermont 1e referred to a special com mittee consisting of the three members of the state board of health and four councillors of the board of delegates of the Vermont State Medical society, to draw up plans fur such a public health council and report t the next meeting of the State Medical society. lhis committee or seven is made up as follows: Dr. C.
