provided, that if the combination exceeds such wage  base,  the  compen-
sation  shall be diminished to an amount which, together with his OR HER

compensation which an injured employee who is disabled due to  the  loss
or  total loss of use of both eyes, or both hands, or both arms, or both
feet, or both legs or of any two thereof, would otherwise be entitled to
under any other provision of this section.
