Notes:
Mr. Sherman Kingsley at the Current Events class at the Congregational Church on Sunday discussed care for people with epilepsy. Dr. Mary McEwen presided. Dr. McEwen advocated "colony care" for epileptics in Illinois on a farm. Mr. Kingsley said the 10,000 epileptics in Illinois have no provision for care except in the jail, the insane hospital or the almshouse. He said the 1889 state legislature passed an act creating such a farm setting, but that no action has been taken.
