Chiropractic Initiative Act Defeated.
—The chiropractic practice act submitted to the voters of Arizona, November 8, on the initiative of a small group of chiropractors, was, according to the latest available report, defeated by a vote of 21,000 to 11,000. The chiropractors of Arizona already have their own examining and licensing board. They sought, through the act just defeated, to procure the removal of all limitations now imposed on the methods of diagnosis and treatment employed by chiropractors. In other words, they sought to be converted by a vote of the people into unlimited practitioners of medicine. The act was designed, too, to deprive the legislature of authority to regulate the practice of chiropractic, and to exempt chiropractors
