Changes in the arbitration laws of the State of Washington effected by the 1943 Act, can be expected to increase the effectiveness of written arbitration agreements as a means of settling controversies. The new act is patterned after the old Washington act of 1881, which was repealed in toto, but its scope is larger and it is more specific in providing legal machinery for the conduct of arbitration.
