Among the Churches
Colorado. —The epidemic of fear, spoken of as the "flu," which was spread by and in mortal mind on the wings of suggestion, forced Christian Scientists to more consecrated effort, with generally favorable results, and afforded opportunities to the committee on publication for voicing the truth through the press, thereby calling the attention of the public to the only antidote for fear; namely, divine Love and its ever operative law. Several Colorado editors gave evidence of awakened thought by publishing editorials and reprinting articles which tended to show the mental source and nature of disease, and warned against fear.
In spite of the acknowledged failure of medical men in meeting the epidemic conditions, they appeared to have been not in the least humiliated or abashed; for when the Colorado legislature convened in January a bill was introduced, and its passage vigorously urged, which would have created a state department of health, whose secretary was to have been clothed with practically unlimited and autocratic power. The bill was not favorably received in the Senate and was permitted to die in committee. The bill providing for medical inspection in the public schools, after having a stormy voyage in the House, and after being amended to exempt from examination those whose religious beliefs were contrary thereto, finally passed on third reading, only to rest in a Senate committee until the last day of the session, when it was reported out adversely, which report was adopted. Another medical measure, the so-called eugenics marriage bill, requiring a physician's certificate before a marriage license could be obtained, was defeated in the House. In addition to the defeat of these three measures, two affirmative victories were won. The act establishing a child welfare commission was amended so as to prohibit the teaching of sex hygiene in the public schools by any of the child welfare workers or the expenditure of any of the commission funds for that purpose. Thus the members of the Colorado legislature registered their disapproval of this pernicious teaching. The Workmen's Compensation law was amended to permit any injured employee insured under this act to procure, with the permission of the industrial commissioners, "any non-medical treatment recognized by the laws of this State as lega, the practitioner administering such treatment to receive such fees therefor under the medical provisions of this Act as may be fixed by the Commissioner."
