Mississippi County vet or an should not become alarmed because their National Service Life Insurance policies, now being issued, do not contain beneficiary designations. according to Donald p. Ownbey, officer in charge of the Veterans Administration office here. The VA has explained, Ownbey said, that beneficiary designations do not appear in any NSLI policies. The reason is that, contrary to commercial insurance practice, it is not necessary for the holder of an NSLI policy to submit his policy for endorsement cacli time a beneficiary designation is changed. A veteran can designate or change Tile Communist press of Ger- |iany linked these statements In call for a new maneuver for I peace." The struggle for peace, laid the Soviet-Licensed Berliner lieitung, has entered a new phase. Many observers saw In the new line a Communist answer to the irojected North Atlantic pact— an I ffort to knit together the national hommunlst Parties of Western Eu- lope in a policy threatening to un- llermine their own governments. Whatever the reason, a British Jjbserver commented that "we ex licet a turn like this about every Inonth or six weeks. How far the |iew course will be followed we I anno t of course tell, but we expect lor some time now we will be hearing provocative declarations in- I ended to make non-Communist Itountries uneasy about the reli- ibility of their own peoples." the beneficiary of his NSLI at am time, merely by notifying the VA of his desires in writing. Because It Is so easy to change beneficiaries it is not practicable for the VA to include the name of the beneficiarj in the policy itself. Actually, Ownbey snid, practicallj all veterans have named beneficia ries to receive the benefits of the! National Service Life Insurance for the Chlcknsiiwba District.
