' A Different Viewpoint of the. Community Chest By A. S. LAVENSON Vice-President H. C. CtpwtU Co. Let us get away from the ordinary conception of the Community Cheat and take a new slant at it one which it more in conformity with the idea of a "community of interests." To make a practical application, let ut regard it as a big insurance plan. & - , How many people will admit, or would like to have it charged that they are recipient qf charity when they recover losses through the insurance companies? Are these losses really paid, by the companies? Not at all. They are paid by the contributions of the policy holders through the companies, at the machinery for collecting the funds and apportioning them, according to the plant adopted for their distribution. . . The whole principle of insurance fire, lite or any other kind it based on the idea of mutual helpfulness. Those who are fortunate pay more than they get back, to the unfortunate can get back more than they pay. True, some people do not believe in insurance. If no one believed in it there could be no practical system whereby sufferers from the contingencies of life could be relieved of their burdens. r Insurance is such a big thing in the modern world that the unbeliever can be forgotten as .a benighted being. So may we forget those who have no desire to jointly assume the everyday hazards of human existence with those who may need help before the, rest To continue the application of the principles of insurances Not all of the income goes to pay losses. ' Much of it is expended for fire patrols, fire and accident prevention, public health measures, statistical and research bureaus.. In our social system, the welfare organizations serve a similar purpose. Through the Boy Scouts, the Y. M. C. A., 4he Y. W. C. A. and the Travelers' Aid Society, safeguards are provided against those economic losses and wastes which are much more expensive to pay for than to prevent Let us agree that a contribution to the Community Chest is a payment toward a common fund; that the contributer is fortunate in not being compelled to draw from it in cash; but that he does benefit through its alleviation or prevention of those social maladies which are a menace to all. -1 Maaette, a Better Uaderwear rabria, ia plain and self-colored satin strip. 59 c SA-Ia.
