(Editors note: Three constitutional amendments and four initiated acts will be presented to Arkansas voters tor their consideration at the general election in November. This is Ihe last in a scries of articles explaining the purposes of the proposals.) By BOB BROWN Little ,Rock, Oct. (j — TUP)--The final initiated act on Ihe November general election ballot is designed to liberalize the slate s workmen's compensation law—tnu statute providing benefit payments to injured employes or to dependents of employes killed in industry. Practically all of the 50 sect'ons of the original 19-10 law would tc revised by the complex propos-.l which Compensation Commission Chairman Dave Peel says "will greatly assist in a more proper and equitable: administration o r the law." Principal change suggest in the aei—a boost in maximum benp/il payments from s:.T> to Sltf per wo,4: —was brought about by the high cost of living rind higher w a tics now being paid. Peel explained that when the original lav.- was passed. pavm'--nls were set up at the rate of'fi.j tier cent of the average weekly w:u;'e— not to exceed .'•il'O. And. he says, when the act was passed few workmen were earning the S3] pev week necessary to draw $20 per weeki compensation. Now, although most workers art- earning wages greatly above Sin per week, they are still caught by the $20 limitation on compon-ation At present, said Peale a, total]-' disabled workman "finds it "-iC'-ed- ingly difficult durins his period of helplessness to support himself and his family on $20 per week." And he explained thai the new 5 limit is simply a ceiling. If and when wages fall again a "workman would still be entitled to only 65 per cent of his weekly wage'. The proposed act would'also increase the total amount of compensation payable in any one case for injury or death from .$7,000 to 88,000. However, the limitation of per cent of the average weokly wage for a period not exceeding 450 weeks, would be retained. Other major changes in the act vould: 1. Increase the allowance lor a dependent child in case of the death of a wage-earning parent from 10 to 15 per cent of the average weekly wage. The act retains the limit of 65 iVr cent that could be paid to the widow and-or to the child or children. 2. Provides that Ihe employer or insurance carrier shall pay attorney fees in addition to compensation in cases where they unsuccessfully fought a claim. 3. Provieles, in cases of death provisions for compensation for palrial as well as total dependency. •1. Eliminates the compulsory requirement for appointment o; a medical board to diagnose occupational diseases. In addition there are many changes in language—designed to clarify the law. Peel said insurance carriers ha\v estimated that the proposed liberalizations will increase prexenl iates to employers by some 10 pear cent However, he adds, if this be trm- the 11 per cent increase will only approximate 25 per cent of tlu- rate deductions put into eff..'Lt since HMO. __ kvv.v :\vv;..v;v; :'•' . ••;. •'•:-%\-;>.r:v : ; : :v'v;':.Vv;;;|;-^^w>K« YVONNE DC CARLO has a rendezvous with DAN DURYEA A scene from .Universal-International's "BLACK BART," in color by Technicolor.

Lens Target 4W > JV '%i^' ty&v ' v^f, i By HAROLD K. MIL}-; S The most important screen ve.m in many years will open Sunday at the Saenger Theatre. At. thai time and place. Cecil B. <•* OeMille's multi-million dollar Tech- -' licolor production of Paramounl's 'Uncomiuored" will make its long iwailecl local debut. "Unconciuered." \viih a cast of housancls headed by Gary Cooper ind Paillette Goiklard ' vivifying Neil H. Swanson's epic novcy or frontier America. is the first "giant" historical spectacle since i.hc end of the war. It is also the most expensive; of all Ihe DeMille classics, ;\nd that includes; such movie milestones as "The Crusades," "Cleopatra," "King of •* Kinds'' and "Kcap the Wild Wind." His penchant for motion picture entertainment on a colossal scale hampered by Ihe restrictions of the war. DeMille bided his lime with planning for "Unconqucred.'' The film's thickly populated cast \vas hand-picked down to the last bit player, and moie than a year plus a small fortune was spent in research to satisfy the producer's demand for absolute authc-nlicity. Only one scene yielded to "cine- ?* ma license.' 'and that, ironically enough, the DeMille trade-mark— the bathtub sequence. The censors demanded soapsuds to keep Miss Goddnrd "decent,' 'unmoved by the itvelalion that the soap of pro- Revolutionary America was non- cuds forming. '•Unconqucred." blessed with an unlimited budget and the magic oi '.lie color camera, is said to transmit to canvas with mighty strokes the turbulent, adventurous days of the Alleghcnios of 17GH.
