0MAHA, Feb. Jl -To the Editor of The
Bee. t read with much interest in last
night's Bee a letter over the signature ot
J. A. Barbour rewarding the new In
creased rates In the Modern Woodmen,
herein he advocates thst members be
permitted at their option to withdraw at
any time after fifty years of age and
have all their paid assessments refunded
with 4 or i per cent Interest.
Such a policy would be very desirable.
It would also be very desirable if a good,
strong fire Insurance eompany would In
sure our property and agree to pay the
loss It we have fire, but If we do not
burn out they would refund us all the
premiums paid and with interest after
w have been insured with them a cer
tain number of years.
In such a case the assessments or pre
miums ild for life and fire Insurance
would be the aame as tbat much money
put In a savings bank that can be with
drawn with Interest.
Doea not Mr. Barbour know that the
asaessmeuta paid by the members who
have been fortunate enough to live have
been used to pay the Insurance for the
less fortunate members that have died?
Does be now recommend thst the remain
ing and Incoming members shall continue
to assess themselves for Increasing death
losses (which must Increase with advanc
ing age), and. In addition, assess them
selves to retire members at their will?
Thla is beautiful In theory, but I fear
Mr. Barbour could not secure a position
as actuary with any standard Insurance
company. Life Insurance, like fire Insur
ance, costs money; also there is a great
difference between terra insurance and
whole life Insurance. The Modern Wood
men of America Insure men only in the
prim ot life under the age of ii, and for
many years the mortality Is light. It Is
cheap term Insurance, but unfortunately
men do not remain young, and, if they
wlah te pay their losses whea members
grow old and mortality Incrsaaes. they
must raise their rates or go to the wait
