By I.KON- HATCH LITTLE nOCK Uft — A bill for compulsory pre-marltal Wood tesls In Arkansas passed the House yesterday afternoon. It was the first step toward enactment of a proposal which has unsuccessfully been brought up in virtually every legislative session for the last 20 years or more. Veteran members said' Itidy believed it was the first time the House — possibily either house — had passed such a measure. Vote on the measure was 03 to 26. . nly three representatives spoke on the matter after the author, Rep. Jim Coates Jr. of Pulaski County, had obtained a limitation of debate: Coales and Harry Colay of Columbia for the bill, and" James R. Campbell of Garland afniust it. The bill would require applicants for marriage licenses lo file a physician's certificate that they had undergone, a physical examination, including n blood lest within the previous 30 days and were found Iree from communicable syphilis. Without the certificate, no marriage license would be issued. , Both Coales'and Colay, the latter of whom spoke only one minute, based their pleas on lhe welfare of yet unborn children. Will Find Other Diseases Coates, a 26-year-old Little Hock insurance broker who Is serving his second term in the House, said he first became deeply conscious of the need for every possible safeguard against syphilis when he saw the plight of children at State Hospital who had the disease at birth. Replying lo a question, Coates said that while the bill was aimed primarily at syphilis the required examination would disclose other, communicable diseases — both venereal and nonvenereal. Coates conceded that his bill •"certainly won't slop syphilis, but it's one thing we can do. to help cut down on it's spread."' Campbell said his opposition was based on the fact that persons of cerlain religious sects which believe in 'healing by faith only. Campbell, who is not a member of any of the objecting sects, said "no health program should be al' lowed to take precedence over religious freedom." ' Colay replied to Campbell with the assertion that "a blood test •f'i »** *, was absolutely ho bearing on man's worship of God." "A person found infected with syphilis isn't even required under the bill to take treatment,'" Colay added, "but he can't get a marriage license as long us he ha the disease."
