Think how costly a hospital confinement will be. Imagine paying for those indispensible x-rays, doctor hills, medicines and drugs that are not covered by your present insurance. Would you be able to afford the quiet and privacy of a private room and a private nurse, should you so desire? Or a telephone to keep in touch with loved ones? Or the rental of a TV set to help pass the lonely hours? Who would pay your bills that keep on coming in at home? Many folks have lost their life savings, their cars, even their homes trying to meet such expenses. And no one knows whose turn it will be next. Why you must act before the deadline date shown on your enrollment form—lust a few days from today. Why do we give you so little time to apply for your insurance policy—only a few days? Because, as mentioned above, we must receive your Enrollment Form the same time as all the others in order to pass on to you the savings that come from processing many policies at one time. We mail you the policy as soon as we receive your Enrollment Form. When the policy arrives, examine it in the privacy of your own home. Take all the time you need. It 's a very short document, and you 'll be pleasantly surprised to discover there is NO FINE PRINT. Then — show it, if you wish, to someone you trust. Perhaps your lawyer, accountant, or banker. Better still — show it to your own insurance man .... even though he may very well be working for another company! If he is a personal friend, he has your best interests in mind. So you can believe him when he tells you there is no better bargain available anywhere — at any price! Money back guarantee—in case you change your mind. Even after you mail your Enrollment Form below...even after you examine the policy in your own home and talk it over with anyone you wish... even after all this you are still free to return the policy within 15 days and your quarter will be refunded at once. There will be no obligation whatever. Meanwhile, all during the 15 days you are making up your mind-you 'll be protected by $100.00-A-WEEK extra cash benefits just as if you had already said "yes." That's right, you will be fully covered all this time for any accident which puts you in the hospital, even if you finally decide to return the policy.
