Insurance Payments An idea of tlio scope of (lie insurance buahuss in tins country is i;ivr>i in u recent statement by U. D. I'lynn, vice president and actuary of the Travelers' Iit.-urancc Co., showing that moi'e.tlian $2,800,000,000 was paid out to American po!iey-lu)klers and IjoiiefieiiirRs under nil lands of insurance in this country din ing I lit- past yi-ar. This total exceeds the total for 1929' by nearly §300,000,000. More than 52,000,000,000 of this was paid out under policies protecting p:<>- ple—.such as life insurance, accident insurance, liability insurance and the like. The remainder was paid under policies promoting property. Accidents causing personal injuries were responsible for the payment of ?(!00,0()0,000. Few of us, probably, had realised that insurance payment: reached any such tremendous totals. Probably' Mr. Flyan is entirely correct in remarking that this payment of §2,800,000.000 has been an important factor in the stabilization of business conditions. TVie Lure of the Sea A tending of the list of casualties in thj recent clash between the U. S. Marine.- in Nicaragua and a band of Sandiao's troops reminds one, once more, of the way in which inland parts of the country contribute to our naval forces. In the old days the navy and the marine corps drew their enlisted men chiefly Irom the seaports. New York, Boston, Philadelphia and Baltimore— these, ports were, literally, home purl* for most of th; sailors and marines with the U. S. fleet. I!«t now the recruits come from the interior—from places where men of war arc never se:n, and iitvcr will be .seen. This .casually, list, for instance; the * boys whose names appeared in it came from such places as Des Moincs, la., Washington, Pa., Chillicolhc, Mo., and Lawrciiceville, Ga. The lura-of the sea ha; a potent effect in places where salt air is never smolled. li drew thesj young chaps far afield—la unexpected death in a Xicaraguan jungle. Aficr all, muses the ollicc sane, iliwc is only i>. letter's (ilHcrencc between n resolution nncl :i revolution. A Typical Boy The most interesting thing to us in this story of the kidnaping of ills Buscli grandson in St. Louis wa~ the attitude the boy himself displayed towards his kidnaper. Questioned aficr he had relumed home, the boy revealed that the lirsl Ihing lie said to his kidnaper w;t-— not, "Where an- yon going to lake me.'" or "What are you going to do with me?" but "What kind of a !"in have you got'.'" And when tin- kidnaper told him, Ilk- boy's curia-it v was appeased. T[iat is interesting because it is so typically buy-like, (inns ami desperadoes have always had a fascination for boys; and Ilii.- boy, finding himself in Hie prcsenc. <>f a real desperado, was assailed of all by a desire to know just wlial : ; »rl of weapon his captor carried. Could anylhing be more in Ihe tradition of Tom Sawyer? I S1D& GLANCES By George Clark _WEDXKSDAY,.JANUARY 7,'_lgj useful life. The method of treat= £;r£ »™ »<« ! MOTHER NATURE'S CURIO SHOI 77;e Age oj a Worker That .Mti.-li'igee, Okla., coiiiraclor who advertised for a nninb:r of l.ric-k- ln.ver.-j and specified [hat they must be more than 50 years old seems to have . good sense, '.veil if he. is running counter to the jivueral trend in industry. "Old men are the best," he says. "They know more, do better work, and do it moiv easily. This stuff of turning men off at -15, as many do, is piffle." It would be hard to pick any Haw in that argument. Indeed, it is ru- llier likely that industrialists generally will return lo that point of view •in the next few years. Tha craze for youthful workers has gone beyond all reasonable bounds, and a reaction is certain to come. 0 1 510 viA -Ui.;E ii sufficiently lone time to indicate to' what [!^'.-ec the tre.itmem will al; feet (ho longevity of these people In general. : I'f'INAM'S lilRTIl i On Jan. 7. me.
