Save More planes stands ready to protect family so rfcs continued from i age tent on the proverbial limb to select the riddled Yankees in tile american. The Globe Trotters world Champion basketball players in 1939 and 1940, brought their colourful outfit to Texas thus week. And no doubt texans discovered the Trotters equal the famed House of David As exhibitionists. In the last live minutes of a game the Trotters usually Start a crap game Between themselves for instance. Other stunts come in Bunches entertaining even the most serious fan. Sports scribe John Girard informs an extensive baseball program is shaping at fort Sill okla., just Over the River from Sheppard Field John is anxious to promote some games Between the two installations. If fort silts baseball a teams prove As potent As its basketball outfits Sheppard Fields Likely to see some Busy afternoons if a schedule materializes. Which reminds the eagles were one of Only four teams to Down the fort Sill reception Center Baske Teers this year. The reception Center won 27 of 31 games losing to the eagles will Rogers Cameron College and fort Sill station Hospital. They turned the tables to defeat All of these four except will Rogers which eked out a hairline Victory. By Cpl. Maurice l. Cohen Post insurance office the fruit that the Small Premium paid in on National service life insurance Nesli bears is a sort of latter Day fulfilment of that age old Promise a cast thy bread upon the Waters for thou Shalt find it after Many without rolling Drums publicity or other ceremony a Man aged 25 makes an initial savings Deposit or Premium payment of $6.70 and immediately creates a $10,000 in a destructible tax exempt non attachable estate that like the a a a minuteman of old is ready at a moments notice to go into action i to protect his family for 20 years or for life depending upon whether his beneficiary is under or Over age 30. I neither High casualty rates epidemics panics nor depressions can alter the Ever ready dependability i of this substantial Cushion against the evil Day ahead depletion of family income caused by death of the breadwinner. Death benefits increase the rates Are extremely Low. Let us see in what Way this is True. In the first place based on the american experience table of mortality they assume the Normal death rate experienced during peacetime. Eventually with better than an estimated 5,000.000 servicemen overseas and with deaths exceeding the Normal rate of about 5 per 1,000 per year assuming an average age of 25 years and the lives lost in past campaigns and in the forthcoming German and japanese campaigns totalling As few As 250,000, there would be due approximately $2,500,000,000 in death benefits for which there would not be a Cash Reserve in the National life insurance fund. Likewise if there should be the same number of totally and permanently disabled soldiers during i this War whose disabilities were traceable to the extra hazards of War there could conceivably he a further deficit depending on the. Average amount of Nesli owned 1 by each such Man and the por a lion thereof that is term and per i manent insurance. Government bears Cost what then is the source of this a extra sum of billions of dollars to take care of the added sex i lenses incurred by items of administration and by excess mortality and disability attributable to the additional hazards of War the answer is Given in the National service life insurance act of 1940 a the National service life insurance fund a consisting of premiums deposited into a separate fund in the United states Treasury together with interest earned thereon shall be available Only for the payment of liabilities under the insurance including payments of dividends to policyholders and refunds of unearned premiums. A the government bears All the expense of administration of National service life insurance and the excess mortality Cost and the Cost of the waiver of premiums on account of total disability when death or disability is traceable to the extra Hazard of the military or naval service so that such costs do not affect the National service life insurance yes the owner of the $10,000.00 maximum amount of Nesli especially if it be permanent insurance enjoys a big dollars and cents advantage Over his Barracks mates who have not yet seen the Wisdom of buying All the insurance that 1 their circumstances will permit.
