JH&tDo* All over the country, men and women are finding new "frontiers of opportunity" for themselves, and building their own security through their own energies and their own ambitions. You have only to look on any Main Street. Take the story of Don Welsh for example . . . He* a career +JK ike American Spirit DONALD WELSH of Lansing, Michigan, knows this from persona) experience: neither a combat disability nor lack of prewar job history need keep you down! Even with a wife and child to support he was willing literally to start at the bottom ... in the basement of a department store. He caught the boss's •ye by cleaning up a snarled inventory in record tune. Offered quick promotion to paymaster, he turned it down in favor of a long-range rise in a selling department. But how to get the background as well as the experience so necessary to getting ahead? Don took night-school courses in selling . . . learned how "to meet the public." And his plan is paying off! At the age of 25, Don is already an assistant section manager at F. N. Arbaugh Co., Inc. He's another Amer- fcan with the "Do-it-Yourself Spirit!" You'll find other proofs, too, that this spirit is lively as ever in America. One is the fact that 4 out of 5 families —80 million people—of their own free choice hold life insurance. And so the life insurance business has grown to fill their needs. That's why today there are 584 life insurance companies in active competition and 150,000 agents, helping Americans to help themselves! MaMtcf... It's M fuel that the affairs of (he life Insurance business are an "open book"... because: e Every life iiumrance company ha* to fl)u a report every year in •very HUte in which it u licensed to do business. e These roporU to the state authorities completely cover each company's insurance and financial operations. They are open to (lie public at any time. e The state authorities also have the right to inquire into any of the company'* affairs at any time And in most states examinations of the company must be made at regular intervals. These examination report*, too, are open to public in spection. The iiMurance commissioner at your state capital will welcome inquiries. Or an inquiry to your company or your agent will be gladly answered. See your life insurance agent. Getting information for you is one of the many way* he helps demonstrate that life, uuurana t» a aimer' The Institute of Life Insurance—central source of information—60 East 42nd Street.
