, P t^l^^WW .MMMV feature story M Algerian /J^C // o TO J?Jf FIND Kirk Hayes, Atgona, (he subject of a feature story in the national Underwriters Review for September. The magazine is devoted to the insurance ; industry. The article "says in part: £ "Twenty - five thousand miles. That's equivalent to a- 'bout 13 trips from Des Moines t to Los Angeles or 20 trips from Des Moines to New «York. It's also the mileage rolled up by one Iowa man to attend Chartered Property «and Casualty Underwriter classes during the past three -years. #, "Kirk Hayes lives in Algo- 'ha, where he works for Drug- 'gists Mutual Insurance Company. Kirk drove to Des Moines once each week during « the 1964-65 school year to attend Parts I and V classes at 'Drake university. fo "He repeated the same rou- .tine for Parts II and III during the 1965-66 year. Having .passed these four exams he was able to "loaf" last year, attending only part IV classes. (Once again he was successful at exam time and we think he has earned the title, '25,000 flfileC. P. C. U The trip took Kirk about '2% hours each way. His schedule during the first two years involved leaving Algona ^around 1 p.m. to make the 4 p.m. Class at Drake. After 'this would come dinner, then 4 the second class from 7 to 9 .p.m., and then the long drive ^home. < , "What about bad weather during the winter months? Kirk reports that it was sel- jdom a problem and that he never had to miss more than (two classes a year because of this factor. And fortunately he was never involved in a traffic accident during the .period, although he did see ^many. 'I believe I saw an accident at every four-way stop between Algona and Des Moines,' he says. "But the trip itself, of course, was only a part pf the •time invested, in the prSgram^ 'I tried to study two hours for- every hour spent in class. This meant eight hours a week when two parts were invblv- ed.' Kirk did most of his studying evenings and also found some time on weekend afternoons." The article also said he did hot recommend the two courses at a time especially when commuting is involved. The C. P. C. U. designation in insurance is comparable to the Certified Public Accountant in accounting.

Most towns inSthe area} also- showediJinr ; creases^'- In comparison ••< with 'some years back the increase is considerably more, but also to be taken into account in that situation is the fact inflation has boosted sales prices which results in a higher sales tax income.
