T HE financial story below is a record of achievement by men and women who are planning to avert want or to build estates. You may admire their steadfastness of purpose last year under handicaps which tested courage. • These people—policyholders of the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company—are building for their future. They would like to know what the future holds in store for them and for the country as a whole. Let them, and other citizens, examine any chart of our country's unparalleled prosperity over the past hundred years. It appears, not merely as a jagged line, but as a series of towering steps which rise steadily onward and upward.

Today this country has more riches and better facilities than ever befqre with which to commence her next great period of development. A review of the financial history of the United States since it was founded in 1783 should turn any pessimist into an optimist. The Metropolitan will gladly mail, free, a bootf-' let,"The Development of Prosperity in America", telling of past ups and downs— and ups again — and how soon the "ups" followed. This Company is a mutual organization. It has no stock and no stockholders. All of its assets are held forits Policyholders. METROPOLITAN LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY • NEW YORK FREDERICK H.
