Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - January 11, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta FRTpAY, JANUARY 11, 1*115 THE LETHRRIDGE DAILY HERAL*? .".ILW T!J.Mi!H Hail iuKtirunce whereby tho income Khali bo derived .from the crop area tmly, tt board of directors- -"under which tho supervision of the plan whall be carried mit and an act of legislature to allow all districts, organized or unorganized, to come auto* inatlcnlly under the Hail Insurance net, are some of tho sweeping changes susganUd by tho I rail Insurance hoard of Alberta to the directorate-, of tho -1 fnltod Fanners of Alberta at their meeting in Calfrary la*, Saturday.' Present Scheme Under the present scheme a lovy, partly flat rate and partly crop area rate, provides tjie income for the Insurance payments.. When the Insurance board Nvbb first organized four yearn ago, there was a much greater per ocntage of uncultivated land than nt present arid ae the crop area haa increased It Is thought that the mwi with the crop should pay for the insurance, The original reason for the flat rate was that It penalised the speculator, but with the change in the amount of crop area it is found that the mnall farmer 1h also penalized. For instance, the fanner, with 'AO or 40 arcres In crop out of 160 had to "pay a tax on the entire 160. According to the new plan tho municipal hall Insurance will be put on a straight business basis and will compete with the' regular commercial companies In that the c.o.st of administration will be less. The companies at the presentt^in^e, charge $11.40 for 'lift acres and tbefaverage for the bail lusurance board over the last four years-in fl.9. There' are 26 municipalities under the act at present and it is thought by the board that with amendments such as they have suggested, it will 'be -much more attract-jlre to the average, municipality. Board's Proposals  The 'resolutions; as amended and 7>ut before the directors of the farm-ers' organizations are as follows; ; "That we favor a hail insurance .scheme in,whiRh the income shall he rescnted at the annual meeting of the Social Service Council of Canada held in.the I'-titrrs!
