Once you have Blue Cross and Shield, there is never any worry about cancellation because of age, deteriorating physical condition, or the size or number of hospital or doctor bills. Blue Cross is our community plan, with membership fees designed so that all employees in the community can afford this valuable health care through payroll deduction. Our city and employees, our teachers, our businesses and industries, and our farmers are rapidly becoming aware of the fact that only Blue Cross and Blue Shieid can give them the kind of health protection that will meet their unpredictable health needs."
