Chiropractic Journal of Australia : CJA December 2013
Chiropractic Journal of Australia Volume 43 Number 4 December 2013 155 THE YEAR THAT WAS 1913 PETERS guilty." Morris was in a position to tangle up a witness far more thoroughly than a regular prosecuting attorney would be, because of his deep knowledge of chiropractic and of any real catch questions which might exist.108 The parade down Brady Street on Wednesday, 27 August, must have been a sight to behold. Led by a Marshall and the colour bearers and followed by B.J. and Lieut.-Governor Morris in an automobile. Then Otto's 30 piece band followed by the faculty and offcers of the UCA in automobiles. Next came foreign representatives, 18 in all, carrying the fags of their countries followed by the various state delegations carrying their state fags. The parade was followed by a line of automobiles.107 The closing feature of the Convention and Home coming was a boat ride on the famous "Father of Waters" ---the Mississippi. A contract had been made with the "White Collar Line" for their "G.W. Hill"---capacity 2,000. The big boat had a magnifcent dancing hall, orchestra furnished and dancing purely for the wiggling of the feet. Leave 9.a.m., return 6 p.m.109 OTHER ASSOCIATIONS The Chiropractic Association of the District of Columbia was formed 1 January 1913 with D.M. Wingate, MD, DD, DC as President, and Joy M.

B.J. mentioned that during the past 18 years 336 Grand Jury sittings in Iowa involved chiropractors charged with the practice of medicine without a licence. Out of these 336 sittings only 32 indictments were returned, 304 refused to consider the charges. Out of these 32 indictments only 13 were convicted.113 Morris and Hartwell, legal counsel for the Universal Chiropractors' Association had been involved in some 500 or more separate cases during the past 8 years, from New York and Rhode Island to Washington and Oregon; Canada to Cuba; and Minnesota to Texas.114 Street Parade during UICA Convention, Courtesy Palmer College Archives EPILOGUE The year 1913 saw the Italian Hall disaster on Christmas Eve, where 59 children died; the Great Flood in Ohio; maritime disasters on the Great Lakes of the U.S., where 12 ships were sunk with a loss of 25454 lives; the opening of Grand Central Station in New York; the naming of Canberra as Australia's national capital; the assassination of King George I of Greece; the introduction of the Mental Defciency Act in the U.K., strongly supported by Dr Barnardo who championed the sterilisation of all socially unacceptable people; and in the chiropractic world the event that overshadowed all else, the death of D.D.
