Compensation for portions of hands

Compensatien for defective hearing,
eliminating the contention that em.
ployes in some cases die of heart fail
Eliminating entirely the question o
dependency, and to pay compensation
for all deaths, regardless of heirs or
that the amount so
eompensated be distributed according
to intestate laws, that is to thé estate

‘Wage rate should be increased from
BO to 66 per cent, as is the case in
, the Ohio act.
~ That the fourteen: day. period is too
long. That the law sheuld be chang-
'.ed to make the period not more than
one week, or to pay the victim after a
certain length of idleness, calculated
from .the date of the accident.
Method eof computing wages should
‘be entirely modified; rates should not
be multiplied by 5% but by 6, and a
man should be pald for overtime.
_ Compensation for death of single
man is too low; 20 per cent to father
or mother is not sufficient; should be
.-made 50 per cent.

The attitude of President Wilson
has been that no steps of a belliger-
ent character should be taken and
that if a state of war comes it must
be through Germany’s commission of
acts in clear violation of internation-
al law. Some. officials close to the
president are known to feel that in
line with this policy the United States
should not sanction a shoot-on-sight
program which might be construed as
Mr. Wilson has the backing of the
entire cabinet in taking the step. Guns
for arming merchantmen have been
assembled at navy yards along the At-
