HTHE INSURANCE carried upon Nebraska lives and property
il should be carried in Nebraska companies. For each dollar
sent out of Nebraska less than 60 cents returns in the shape of
commissions and payment of losses. Forty cents out each dollar
remains in the east to be used in "high financing," made familiar
by Thomas W. Lawson. This drain upon Nebraska amounts to
millions of dollars every year. It should be stopped.
How? By insuring Nebraska lives and property in Nebraska
Insurance Companies. They are as -safe, as the safest. Their
rates are reasonable. They invest in Nebraska securities and not
in waterlogged Wall Street stocks; ThW employ Nebraskans.
who build homes in Nebraska and help swell the volume - of Ne
braska business. The big insurance buildings of the east, with
their armies of clerks, could be duplicated in Nebraska if the vast
sums spent by Nebraskans for insurance were spent with Nebras
ka insurance companies. The money thus kept at home would
work day and night for the development of Nebraska resources.
Loaned to Nebraska men, the interest would remain in Nebraska.
Why continue the policy of building up eastern institutions at our
expense? Stop the drain on our resources! Build up home insti
tutions! The fact of the matter is, the Big Insurance Men of the east
laugh at us while making Big Money from us. We have been
such "easy marks" in the past. From now on carrv vour insur
ance in Nebraska companies.
