Christian Scientists may practise on the Canal Zone,...
The Christian Science Monitor
Christian Scientists may practise on the Canal Zone, according to an executive order issued today [Dec. 26] by President Taft, amending the regulations governing the practice of medicine which had debarred them. President Taft's action followed protests from Christian Scientists that the executive regulations prevented them from establishing themselves along the canal. The rules provided a fine and jail penalty for any person practising medicine, dentistry, or pharmacy without a license, or using the title of "doctor" without authority, and so defined the practice of medicine as to include in its provisions any one "who shall attempt to heal, cure, or alleviate, or who shall in any wise treat any disease or any physical or mental ailment of another." President Taft amended this regulation to-day with the following provision:
"Nothing in this order shall be construed to prohibit practice of the religious tenets of any church in the ministration of the sick or suffering by mental or spiritual means without the use of any drug or material remedy, whether gratuitously or for compensation, provided sanitary laws are complied with; or gratuitous service in case of emergency or the ministering of ordinary household remedies."
The Christian Scientists who are already established on the Canal Zone will resume practice on Jan. 1, President Taft making his order effective at the beginning of the new year.
