A. J. .Ricklefs said thai •ecords have shown that drivers under 25 are not as great a risk as indicated by insurance rates in the past and therefore some nsurance companies have lowered the rates. Now in effect, there' is no charge for teenage female drivers; there are lower rates for men drivers under 25; and there is no additional charge if cars are used for business. In this latter category, insurance records show that the person using his car for busiJiess is as safe a risk as non- business users. gona Country Club.
