The Kansas Medical Bill

Perhaps it would be of interest to the readers of the Sentinel to know something of the attempted passage of the medical bill in the Kansas Legislature during the winter just passed.

As a member of the House, I had the pleasure of watching its progress from the cradle to the grave.

The Hanna Bill, as it was known, was introduced in the House and Senate simultaneously early in the session. Its provisions were intended to be very stringent, and to apply particularly to the practice of Christian Science, the clause defining the practice of medicine specifying, among other things, those who attempted to heal by "mental impression or otherwise."
