KEEP WAR RISK INSURANCE.
It is regrettable that so many former service rien are not keeping
up their Government life insurance issued through the Bureau of War
Risk Insurance in Washington. The fact seems to be due largely to
widespread confusion and lack of information as to the right of former
service men to permanent Government life insurance, and the process
by which this insurance may be retained.
The demobilization of our armed forces was so rapid and was at
tended by such uncertainty on the part of service men as to future civil
occupations and permanent places of abode that it was not surprising
that many of the men gave little thought to tha matter of insurance.
Others doubtless thought the original term insurance (War Time Insur
ance) ceased when they were demobilized and did not know it might be
converted into any one of the several forms of permanent Government
Life Insurance (Converted Insurance). Still others, immediately upon
their return to civil life, felt financially unable to continue the insur
ance. They should now take advantage of the liberal provisions for re
The Government is determined that no former service man shall
lose his right to Government insurance through lack of knowledge of
conditions. To this end, the press, the pulpit, bankers, physicians and
other professional men, and the great volunteer agencies of social wel
fare like the Red Cross, the Y. M. C. A., the Knights of Columbus, the
Y. M. H. A., the Salvation Army, the War Camp Community Service, the
Boy Scouts, and many others are now co-operating with the Bureau of War
Risk Insurance in an educational campaign designed to reach the former
service men, wherever located, and tell them the Government is now com
mitted to the policy of permanent life insurance for its soldiers, sailors
Term Insurance (War Time Insurance), if it has lapsed, may be easily
reinstated within eighteen months from the date of discharge, by stating I
in the application that the applicant is in as good health as at date of dis
charge, and by the payment of only two months' premiums on the amount
of insurance to be reinstated. And this term insurance (War Time Insur
ance) may be converted into one of several forms of Government policies.
A WORD TO DISABLED SOLDIERS.
Every man who was in the military or naval service of the United
States during the late war, and who on account of such service is not phy
sically fitted to engare at once in a gainful occupation should at once
notify the Bureau of War Risk Insurance in Washington, D. C.
Under the law this Bureau is charged with providing for service men
discharged because of disability incurred in active service in the line
of duty, compensation and free medical treatment until such time as they
are retored to physical fitness. During the summer of 1918 there was a
general combing ou.t of the -military training camps of the country in c
an effort to bring up the standard of physical fitness, and many men dis- t
charged at that time may be unaware of their rights under an act of Con
gress to compenastion for disability and medical attention and hospital
treatment where necessary. All cases of this or a like nature should
be brought immeditely to the attention of the Bureau of War Risk Insur- b
WHY? AND WHY NOT? f
An English gentlewoman volunteered for war work, says a British 0
periodical, and was assigned to scrub the floor of a Y. M. C.'A. hut in S
the Strand. She had done little manual labor, but she accepted the task
without protest and went down on her knees with cloth, soap and a pall
of hot water. f
Soon the water was black, and she asked a man in uniform to empty
"Hang it ,madam, I'm an officer!" he protested.
The reply was instantaneous: "Hang it, officer, I'm a duchess!"
said the scrubwoman.
Mexico had a parcel-post system long before the United States. On
one occasion at least the post office carried such a "parcel" as probably
never was mailed north of the Rio Grande. A traveler who wished to return
a hired mule to the owner addressed a tag and fastened it to the mule's
bridle, paid the postmaster $2.50 and gave the carrier a fee. The mule
was delivered by parcel post.
On October 17 the Secretary of the Treasury signed a check for d
$2,648,349,171.53....the largest ever drawn, it Is said. Because it was
made payable to the Treasurer of the United States for redeeming cer
tUnfcates of indebtedness and other obligations, the money really was
not transferred. The largest check ever drawn on the Treasury for money

With double performances on
New Year's Eve, a special matinee
on New Year's Day, and an extra
ordnarily attractive program of the
very best vaudeville acts all week,
the Orpheum management will make
the first week of 1920 one of the
best, if not the best, of the seven
day periods of the theatrical season
in New Okleans, this year. The
Christmas week was a record-break
er, with Evelyn Nesbit as the head
liner, and now comes another one of
those pretentious bills, with a whole
musical comedy, condensed into a
tabloid at the top of a varied and in
teresting program. This musical
show is presented by the soldier
stars and the original beauty chorus
of two of the biggest hits of the
musical comedy year in New York,
"You Know Me, Al," and "Let's
Beat It." The new offering is call
ed, "Putting It Over,' and it is hail
ed by all the dramatic critics of the
press as "The Musical Comedy,"
which no one can help liking, from
the opening song to the drop of the
curtain. It is filled with new
music, new songs, fresh comedy, and
all handled by singers, comedians
and dancers who know every angle
ot musical comedy art.
A special feature on the same
program will be a whole factory of f
laughter wrapped up in a "Package
of Smiles," and brought for the en
tertainment and edification of New
Orleans audiences by the clever T.
Roy Barnes, and the beautiful Bessie f
Crawford, both well and favorably t
known to vaudeville all over the t
United States. This is a new and
brilliant bit of humor, especially
prepared for the use of this talented
pair, and according to all advance
notices and press criticisms, has been t
one of the hits of every bill on which ,
the have appeared.
Herbert Ashley, assisted by Roy c
Dietrich, will furnish a comedy nam- I
