$500.00 DEMAND NOTES
In regard to our children's policy of $500.44 each. The possible
death, which would incur doctor, nurse, drug store, hospital and
funeral expense would be approximately $500.00. The Austin Mu-
tual Life Insurance Company has been assuming the payment of
these notes for thousands at a cost less than 1 per cent per year.
MR. PARENT: Think this over. Can you afford to compete at
this figure? It's good business to carry that load the Austin Mu-
tual Way, to say nothing of the joy and satisfaction one gets out
of being on tfie safe side.
Membership for healthy white children between two and eighteen
is $3.00, but for a limited time only. We will issue these policies
for a membership fee of only $1.00. Call now.

Roosevelt immediately after hi* in-
auguration laut Spring. Next Novem-
ber there will be another election of
Representatives, but there will t no

I thing which tho present Congress
¡wants to get done will have to be
i done at this session.
i Third, and most important of the
litems which seem likely to make this
session of Congress memorable, it will
have to decide whether the United
States of America is going to "swing
to the left" and go in for a Socialism
in its more radical form, or whether
the middle-of-the-road policy, neither
radical nor ultra-conservative, is go-
ing to be the guiding principle for
further progress toward recovery.
Set-up of Congress
What Congress will decide is any-
body's guess as yet, but sume of the
considerations which will contribute
toward the decision are obvious.
