Starting time ot coverage. Although some companies represent insurance as, being effective when issued, FTC said, coverage for many sicknesses Is delayed until the policy has been in effect for a time-such as six months f'ortu- berculosis or heart disease. 5. Health status of the insured. FTC charged many companies slate they do not require medical examination, but fail to say the policy does not cover any loss traceable to a conditon which existed when the policy was issued. 6. Sale of a plan. Some companies imply, FTC said, that many benefits are obtainable from pur chase of a single policy for a few cents a day, when actually several policies are required to get all the advertised benefits. 7. Some advertisements offer regularly monthly income ''even for life," FTC charged, but only in cases of total disability due to accidental bodily injury are lifetime payments made. One firm-The Lite Insurance Co. Of America, ami its officers are charged with falsely reprebenl- ing that it is an old. established, reliable life insurance company and a pioneer in the accident and health field. The corporation is less than two years old, FTC said, and its volume of lite insurance is "insignificant." A hearing in this case will be held in Wilmington, Del., Dec. 31. ftftiiffi?, aetote* !9, 19|j Woman Held in the Charred Body Case DALLAS, Tex.

The burned body was found more than a weekago near Davis, Okla., in the fire blackened hulk of a station wagon Hagler had bor rowed a few days before from his ex-wife. Elizabeth Maria Bergmann, 25, .was held n£ a material witness and for investigation of customs violations. She admitted to police during 10 hours of questioning that a recent cablegram calling her to Munich, Germany, to visit her "ill" father was prearranged. She acknowledged also that two diamond rings found in her luggage had not been declared in customs when she flew to the United Slates yesterday to help Hagler, her fiance. About 4% million tf.

But agi'i i-efusocl to a]lo searching of th crop figures- strongly indicate the support price for cotton next year will remain at 90 per cent of par ity. And there are further indications this same level of support might be maintained in 1950. The now farm act spedifies thnt supports for cotton and other basic commodities may rnngc from 8216 to 90 per cent of parity. Under the old law, support for the basics was fixed rigidly at 90 per ; cent The Agriculture Department, in determining the support level for a crop under the new law, Will use a complicated formula. The for mula's prime ingredient is the rntio of total supply to normal sup ply. : For cotton, the maximum rntio is 108 per cent. Support will re main at 90 per cent when tola supply is 108 per cent, or" less, 8 . o: normal supply. If tolnl supply grows over 108 per cent of rtormn supply^ however, then the suppor level could decline to as far as 82V4 per cent. Right now unofficial crop esli- .mates indicated a 104 per ' cent ratio for cotton: Total supply looks like about 18 million bales and'n normal supply of about 17* million bales is in propcct.
