HAlG Ofl TO WAR
rBis AdVice to Demobilized
NEW POLICIES ARE PLANNED
Federal Government Perfecting New
Forms With Many Advantages
: Which Insured Men Will Want
In Place of Present Con- '
Washington. A busy place these
days of demobilization is the bureau of
war risk insurance of the treasury de
partment of the United States, with Its
14,000 employees and its flies contain
ing 30,000,000 records.
Demobilization is having the effect
of making a large proportionof the
soldiers become transient for an In
definite peiod after leaving the serv
ice. Many of the original addresses of
these men become useless, as. thou
sands forget to leave forwarding ad
dresses and neglect to write to the bu
reau. In this way many men are los
ing touch with the bureau and are
neglecting their Insurance. Hence the
efforts of the bureau to keep in touch
with demobilized men are increasingly
difficult, as demobilization progresses.
Every possible agency is being used,
including the Red Cross and public or
ganizations of many kinds.
Uncle Sam is. perfecting plans for
the new form of government insur
ance which the demobilized soldier will
want in place of his war risk Insur-
- ance. , But(the soldier cannot change
his war risk insurance for this new in
surance unless his monthly premiums
are paid up to date on his old insur-
. ance.' y j
Advice to Soldiers.
The advice which is being sent out
from the bureau of war risk insurance
to the soldiers who hs,Ye left the serv
ice may-be summarized thus:

All policies Issued by the govern
ment contain a total disability clause,
. making them pay able-it, any time you f
may become totally and permanently
disabled, regardless of your age.
A. service man, after his return to
civil life, may engage in any occupa
tion, no matter how hazardous, without
affecting his Insurance.
No physical or medical examination
-Is necessary for the conversion of poli
cies. Your government Insurance is pro
tected from the claims of creditors.
Neither you nor your beneficiary
ever will have to pay a cent taxes to
the government on the proceeds of your
You may pay your premiums by the
month, without having to pay anything
extra on account of additional, expense
to the government of collecting month
ly' premiums. Or, if you prefer, you
may pay quarterly, semi-annually or
annually. The government pays all
the expenses of running the business.
You may have the whole-month in
which to pay the premium for that
month. If you fail to pay and your
policy lapses, you may get It-back
through provisions for reinstatement.
Cash and Loan Values.
After -one year the new government
policies will have guaranteed cash and
loan values, also paid-up insurance and
extended term insurance values. The
"cash value" of a new government pol
icy is the amount the government gives
you if you choose to give up your in
surance. The '.Hoan value" means that
you can borrow money on your policy
up to 94 per cent of the cash value.
"Paid-up Insurance and extended
term Insurance values" mean that in
the new policies, if you stop paying
premiums after one year, the govern
, ment allows one of the following op
tions: (1) To remain insured for a
certain time without cost to you. (2)
To receive a . policy for a smaller
amount, which will be paid, no matter
when you die, and on which you will
not have to pay any more premiums.
..... One of the most valuable features of
, ,a. government Insurance policy is that
'l.iittinrQyideVforv...the .disability ,pf the

for any reason you become totally., and
