When ^Ils s Rice, however, appeared on Broadway it was under liar mother's maiden name. Her real name is Jones and she Iiails from Texas, where £he had been a student at Southern Methodist College. Unlike so many of the newcomers, she did ncr*. expect to step right into stardom. In fact, she was prepared to spend some time getting any- sort of a chance realizing that becoming acclimated to audience reaction and getting over stage fright are two vital factors in early theater experience. Producers state that they look kindly upon the cilorts of young society women because of this altitude of humility. They arc, invariably, girls who have attendee theater to such an extent thai they have no Illusions concerning Ihe exactions; whereas, thousand? fore reaching the stage, quickly achieve professional assurance. As for the theater itself—it has e first major casualty of 'the ason to record.

Insurance makes It possible for you to build, and it protects you afterward. The materials are insured before you get them. The house is insured during construction.

Y OUR fire insurance dollar pays for indemnity—for immunity against financial toss when calamity overtakes you. But that dollar buys so much more than the inciemnity > it pays for that it ranks as one of the most effective dollars you spend.. Fire insurance, from the Indemnity standpoint alone, is one of the cheapest of present-day necessities. Its cost has consistently declined for many years—• even during the oerioc! of \var inflation. And this in spite of the fact that insurance service—vss rendered by the more than 250 Stock companies constituting the National Board of Fire Underwriters — has multiplied its activities for the public welfare and greatly enlarged their scope. Research and Engineering Your fire insurance dollar may pay for indemnity only, but for good measure STOCK FIRE INSURANCE provides engineering and research services to make life and property safer- laboratories in which to test materials and devices—scientific measurement of fire hazards •— buildins construction codes—arson detection and investigation—organized fire prevention—and other voluntary measures designed to lower the fire waste and thereby reduce the cost of fire insurance. A thorough understanding of what Stock Fire Insurance really means and doei-'^iid greater public use of its facilities—will result in a still further- reduction of the fire waste and a consequently greater service to the insuring public.
