RANKED S TH IN STATE! There are 211 Jife insurance companies authorized to do business in the State of Iowa. In its first calendar year, of all companies, Investors Life ranked 9th in volume of ordinary life business sold in the State of Iowa. This was all made possible because of the realistic approach to your needs in today's fast moving economy. New concepts in modern day savings and insurance have been built upon the 1958 mortality table, which recognizes man's longer life span as opposed to the 1941 table still used by many . companies. The most important of these new concepts waa the introduction to lowans of THE VIP Prograna. * WHAT IS THE VIP? The VARIABLE INVESTMENT PROGRAM fills a Basic need !n the lives of all of us. This new concept in savings combines & balanced investment program through a special policy of Investors Life Insurance which provides, "guaranteed'* dollars, and Shares in the MidAmerica Mutual Fund which provide "variable" dollars. Thus the program is designed to hedge against both inflation and recession. We sincerely believe that it is the finest insured, savings program yet devised. •*• THt= PEOPLE WHO MAKE IT POSSIBLE , , .
