' Century Club Hears Address by Furlong Speaker Discussed "Wills and ' Trusts" at American Home Meeting Raymond Furlong, of the Glrard Trust Company, Philadelphia, spoke on the subject "Willi and Trusts," before before the meeting of the American Home department of the Century Club yesterday.

A will Is an epilogue epilogue to the life of the individual, and the last word he has to give to his family, the speaker stated. Some people use a will simply to give vent ' to their feelings, he added. Mr. Furlong stated that he sees no reason for secrecy between husbands and wives concerning the contents of wills. No one ever dies without leaving a will, said the speaker, for if the Individual dies without making a will the state makes one for him. The productive value of what one leaves is the thing first to oe consiaerea m making a will, he said, and by leaving leaving it In the' hands of someone experienced, experienced, such as a trust company, it will have more productive value. The speaker, in discussing the fact that some women feel that it Is a reflection on her if the will Is not left in her hands, rather man in a trust company, said that this should not be the case, for there Is more protection when a will is Jen wira me latter. The trust may either be broad and lenient, or narrow ana swici, b& cording to the speaker.
