time of his death and living with her own
blood relatives in Council Bluffs, Mrs.
Viola Cameron, wife or citriord C. Cam
eron, the painter who fell eighty-eight
feet to his death In the now county build
ing a month ago, started suit for $15,000
damages against Caldwell & Drake, gen
eral contractors on the county building,
Wednesday, Fuchs, Son & Blind, the
painting subcontractors on tho building,
for whom Cameron was working when the
accident occurred, and Douglas county aa
owner of the building also are made de
fendants to tho auit.
The suit is the first to be started un
der the stringent .new law known as
Reagan's safety law, which goes to un
usual length In providing for the safe
guarding of workmen In dangerous em
ployment ami for recovering damages by
wives or children In cases of death.
Falls EisrhtyKlght Feet.
Cameron was killed November 28, when
the scaffold on which he and Clarence
E. Winter, a fellow painter, were work
ing broke. Winter saved himself by
grasping a Joist after he had fallen about
twelve feet. Cameron's Ufa was crushed
out when he struck tha foundation floor
eighty-two feet below.
Mr. and Mrs. Cameron were married by
Rev. Charles W. Savldge In July, l'JOi,
when they were 24 and IS years old, re
spectively. Their parents did not approve
the match and their married life was un
happy. A separation was the culmina
tion of frequent storms and Mrs. Cam
eron went to Council Bluffs to live with
No divorce action was started by either
Cameron or his wife. Mrs. Cameron says
they were on friendly terms up to the
time of Cameron's death and had he lived

At the time of the fatal acciuent mem
bers of Cameron's family denied that he
was married and said ha was paying at
tentions to a young woman who boarded
at the home of Cameron's father, J. J.
Cameron, and who worked in J. J. Cam
One of tha provisions of the Reagan
safety law which will apply In the case
Is that when workmen ara employed on
scaffolds mora than thirty-two feet above
solid foundation they must be protected
by a special safety acaffold placed not
more than sixteen feet below tha scaffold
on which the men ara working. The em
ployers must see that this is done, ac
cording to the law.
