JATURDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1934 Compulsory Policies Provide Protection for 18,000,000 Employes This Is the second of a series of three articles on the progress made liy Great Britain in social security of the type which is expected to come up for action In Congress 'tis winter, supported by President Roosevelt and lite \ew Deal leaders, stressing unemployment and bealih Insurance and old age pensions. BY MILTON BRONNKK NBA Service Staff Corresponded LONDON.-In the program of social legislation now being prepared for Congress by the Committee on Social -Security, health Insurance has ,1ts place. In modeling a proposal for the United States, the committee 1ms doubtless studied the health insiir- ance plans of Europe, which have been in effect for many years Germany led the way In the '80s followed by Austria and Hungary. Such insurance is now general in all progressive European countries But because its living standards and customs are more like the American, Britain probably furnishes a more apt pattern than any other country.

British sickness works: insurance plan In considering Ills own scheme Lloyd George, then chancellor of the exchequer hi the Liberal cab- met, said lie had two objects in mind: First—To give the insurea person the medical attention which be might need at any time. Second—To compensate him with money for Joss of wages while ill COMPULSORV ON WORKERS ' Lloyd George's Insurance Act, passed by Parliament in 1911, was compulsory upon the workers and provided for joint contributions by employes, employers, and state. It covered all workers over 16, except Jiiamtal workers earning more than *1250 per annum. Rates of contributions have been changed a number of times At present the contribution by male workers is 18 cents a week, the employer paying the same amount. For women the contribution is 12 (cents by the worker and 14 cents • ,by the employer. , The slate pays' one-seventh of all the cost of the Insurance for rnen and one-fifth for women. Usually the funds provided in this .manner havetsufficed.; . . ,, v MILLION? GET PROTECTION *' ADout" 18,000,000*" people arc In- sureii. The contributor is entitled to - medical attendance as soon as he Is-insured. Contributions are paid by getting special stamps at any postoffice and affixing them to an insurance card. In every county in Great Britain there are insurance comnilt- tees which prepare n panel of doctors who desire to treat insured persons. The sick person has a right to choose any doctor on this -panel. The panel doctor gets from act. A ividoiv who ivninirlcs still receives the above allowances for her childen. An orphan within the terms of the law is a child bother whose parents arc- dead. Each child of an insured man or woman gets a weekly allowance of $1.87 until It attains the age of 1C.

"Green "Pastures" Travels Onward To.New Triumphs IiV PAUL HARRISON NEW YORK.—From down Richmond way comes word that Ol' Brudder Noah is still whacking together n right sturdy ark, and Oabi-iel is still asking whether ii is time to blow his shiny trumpet an dthat there's still a great shout at the beginning of the second scene: "Gangway! Gangway fo' de Lawd God Jehovah!" All this, of course, in "The Green Pastures," which already has held its fifteen-hundredth celestial fish-fry and is rounding out its fifth lusty year as a modern dramatic miracle. The show and its all-Negro cast will travel 15.000 miles during the he.xt few months, going through Canada, down inl< the near-middle west, across th south, and back to Broadway jn February, for a fit til-anniversary festival. Ironically enough, "Green Pastures*' is not booked for th drouth-'-region. Pastures weren' green enough so folks--could bu tickets. .

The druggists are also paid out of the insurance'fund. After the fourth day of incapacity due to illness which keeps him at. home, the worker is entitled to sick benefits. These benefits continue for'26 weeks. Maximum beneflls are paid, when the insured has made 104 weekly contributions. The sums allowed are 53.73 weekly for men and $3 for women. Minimum benefits are paid after the insured has made 26 weekly contributions. When the sick benefits end at the expiration of 2<i weekly payments to the ill person, he then Bets a disability weekly payment which amounts to about SI 87 PAYMENTS .END AT 65 ' ' The Jaw also tnkes Into account the woman who is going to have a baby.

After a person attains the age of 65 he no longer has to pay contributions, but is still insured The bill as originally' Introduced, met with violent opposition on the part of the mcdical profession which feared loss of fees, and from' various voluntary associations which insured their own members But, later, the mcdical profession charged Its opinion and today many a doctor gets a considerable portion of his income from the state system. Iii 1925 a widows' and orphans' pension scheme was linked with: the National Insurance Act. Pay- menls for this Insurance are like wise connected with health and old age Insurance.
