Insurance Rate Lowered Being Insurance rates for all drivers under age 2f> have now been lowered, it was announced this week by the Kicklefs Insurance Agency. A. J. Ricklefs said that lecnyi.i.s have shown that drivers under 25 are not as great a risk as indicated by insurance rates in the past and therefore some insurance companies hove lowered thr- rales. Now in effect, there is n-i charge for teenage female drivers: theie are lower rates for men drivers under 25; and there is no additional charge if cars are used fo.- business. In this latter cate- uoi v. insurance records show that the person using his car for iiu'-irifss is as safe a risk as non- bu-.incss users. gona Country Club.
