Investors Security Growing Investors Security Life Insurance Co. of Arlington Heights, which sold $100 million of insurance during the first 2-Vo years of operation and established a world record for production, apparently has not slowed down its pace. James H. Hall, President, and Garry F. Connell, Jr., Executive Vice President, Co-Founders, reported that production for May was in excess of $5 million. The company is a pioneer in the field of combination programs, which are known as balanced investment plans consisting of high cash value insurance with guaranteed annual cash returns plus, if desired by the purchaser, shares in a mutual fund that holds insurance stocks. The insurance feature of their plans is to protect a growing family against disaster because of the death of the bread winner. The high cash value insurance also provides a hedge against depression. The policy participates in the earnings of the company, thereby providing, with the accumulation of insurance stocks, an inflationary hedge.

Telegraph Want Ads "CLICK" Training Criticized By SAM DAU'SON AP Business News Analyst NEW YORK (AP)—After 16 years of preparing for jobs, graduates are pouring out of colleges just now—and many are being plunked right into corporate versions of classrooms. Most who already have trav- elled the post-college course of company training say they found it worthwhile. But many are critical of their business-type teachers. Almost all of the 2,000 or so companies that recruit prospects in the nation's colleges—at an average cost of $1,000 per graduate hired—have some sort of program for teaching them the facts of corporate life. The companies, and most of the graduates who have gone through the company mill, give the results high marks in a survey by the National Industrial Conference Board. Endorsed But one of last year's trainees says his most valuable experience was "the training program that I endured." He explains: "I decided if I could put 'up with all that I did on the program, I could put up with anything. And I have. I have been called on for many things that I don't think a well-organized program would have taught me. Like cadets, I wouldn't do it again but I am proud to have gone through it." More typical perhaps was another's appraisal of his company's policy of easing a trainee into a problem and letting him solve it himself. He says: "This self-development gave me the ability to make decisions that were my own, and not decisions that follow from someone telling me how to make the decision." Views of 1,074 graduates who have completed training were tabulated by the conference board. The large majority called their business supervisors capable. But 291 found the instruction weak and without challenge, and 176 labeled the training too academic and short on actual doing. Some echoed the post-trainee who said: "Some supervisors did not understand the purpose of the training program, and showed little or no interest in my presence on the job." "A college education is not essential for success in a training course," another reported, "nor in a job afterwards." 'Exciting' Speaking for the majority was the college grad who sums up this way: "The constant movement from department to department By OVID A. MARTIN WASHINGTON fAP) — Pres dent Charles B. Shuman of th American Farm Bureau Federa tion called today for reorganize tion of the nation's rural powe cooperatives to give member adequate protection of t h e i ownership. He said that most of the cooperatives—organized under th government's Rural Electrifica tion Administration loan and su pervision programs and now will a net worth in excess of $1 bil lion—are organized as simple associations with no provision fo member ownership of capita stock or other transferable equ; ties. The rural cooperatives were praised by the Sullivan, 111., farm leader "for providing the compe tition and much of the capita needed to assure almost complete electrification of the n a t i o n's farms." "The capital credits plan fol lowed by many cooperatives ii merely a bookkeeping transaction. It is not a satisfactory evidence of ownership," Shuman said in an editorial in the farm organization's magazine, "The Nation's Agriculture." 'Neither would it be a deterrent to a clever campaign to sell or give away the cooperative to a private utility company or a public power district," he said. Referring to the fact that most of the cooperatives have depended on government loans provided by the Rural Electrification Administration, Shuman said that "it is widely recognized that those who furnish the capital and the credit will, in fact, control any business. 'Until members are given full ownership rights of existence of the rural electric cooperatives will depend on the whims of politi- made my first year exciting and challenging. Working in various areas made the complex system seem simple, and of course working with new people gives a good insight into the type of people and their feelings about the bosses, the system and their particular jobs. Why did the graduates accept the particular job offer? They give a multitude of reasons. Most often mentioned were: 538 because of the company's reputation and future potential; 483 because of the salary; 408 because of advancement possibilities. Many mentioned all three. And were their expectations fulfilled? Only 25 per cent are dissatisfied with their pay; 28 per cent with advancement possibilities; 22 per cent with job assignments and 12 per cent with their relations with the higher-ups. Young Republicans Oppose Kuchel Talk LOS ANGELES (AP)-The Ex ecutive Board of the California Young Republicans considerec and rejected a resolution censuring Sen. Thomas N. Kuchel, R Calif., for a speech the board disliked. Instead, members introduced a resolution commending the senat or—and then voted overhwelming- ly against it. The result, they explained, was to put the group oh record as re- 'using to commend Kuchel. Kuchel last month attacked political extremists and what he called "fright peddlers." One resolution asked Sen. Bar•y Goldwater of Arizona to accept the Republican nomination for president. Another endorsed the "liberty amendment," which calls for re- )eal of the federal income tax. The board also commended Rep. James Utt, R-Calif., for among other things, demanding that the United States withdraw rom the United Nations. Indians Plan Annual American Council WYALUSING, Pa. (AP) - Indians representing 30 tribes in North, Central and South Amerca have decided, to make the Irand Spiritual and Temporal Council, revived after 208 years, in annual event. ians and the Rural Electrifica- ion Administration in Washing- on will have ultimate control." Shuman said it would be simple or the members to reorganize or .mend their by-laws to provide or capital stock to be issued in ilacc of capital credits or by irect sales to the members. He aid transfers of evidence of wnership could be restricted to nembers of the cooperatives to revent "the capture of the or- r anization by outside interests." Hoffa to be Arraigned Tuesday CHICAGO (AP) - James R. Hoffa, president of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, began today a busy Chicago week devoted to union conferences and arraignment Tuesday in U.S. District Court on fraud an conspiracy charges.
