Tho Endowment plan combines protection with an InvoBtmont feature,
frqrn which tho Insured will reap tho benefit of living at Vuo end of
tho endowment period Under tho usual endowment forms, says 10,
15, 20 or 25 years endowment policies, tho premium Is high for tho

whoro tho sacrifice ianiado and thoy aro carried, tho endowment period
comes early in llfo and you usq tho monoy, loso the protection oarly
