Insurance From Family Viewpoint Insurance from the family view - point, with policies as both pro- tection and savings was discussed by Miss Gladys Ward of the Uni- versity of Illinois here Wednesday when she presided at a county- wide, open meeting for home and farm bureau members and any others interested. Four of the most common types of insurance described by Miss Ward were term, ordinary life, ten and 20 payment and endow- ment policies. Payments, said the specialist, could be arranged to oc- cur monthly, quarterly, twice yearly or annually, and in the case of farmers should be made to con- i cur with family income. Especially emphasized was the fact that not all insurance should be carried with one company, and not all the amount in one policy. This practise was advised as giv- ing a greater measure of protec- tion in case of depression and the risk of company failure, and by having the amount of insurance spread over several smaller poli- cies, there is less danger of losing the entire investment. Forty-five were in attendance for the meeting, which was held in the court house from 1:30 to 3 p. m., and comprimes one of the special home bureau activities of the month. PAGE Mxs.
