The Woodmen of the World Rock
Island camp !5 will give a dancing
party at the Watch Tower inn tomor
row evening. Bleuer's orchestra will
give a good dance program.
The iew rates- of the Woodmen be
came effective today and coincident
with the change comes the announce
ment that the way is now clear for the
society to enter three states which for
merly barred it because of its former
inadequate rate. The state of Missis
sippi has already issued a license en
abling the Woodmen to write insur
ance within its confines and
the insurance commissioner of
North Carolina has intimated
that the license will be Issued in his
state in a few days. The third of
the new states into which the Wood
men are now privileged to go is Mas
sachusetts. Attempts during the past
10 years to enter the latter state have
been thwarted because the commis
sioner of insurance there felt that the
rate was not sufficient to make the in
surance offered sound.
Intimations that the enforcing of the
new rates would hurt the society
when it came to adding new members
were not borne out by the first reports
to come in from the various field depu
ties. They have been at work for
Eome time writing policies to take ef
fect with the enforcement of the new
rate, and near 1,000 new certificates
were prepared for issuance' today. The
new features of the insurance coupled
with its absolute soundness as is dem
onstrated by the unqualified endorse
ment of the insurance commissioners
of the country, has opened up a new
field to the society, thousands of care
ful men who want insurance cheap,
but at the same time absolutely safe.
The head office force is kept busy
changing the eld members from the
old rate to the new one, hundreds of
them being transferred at their own
request each day. The members have
until the first of the year to take up
the new rate but many of them do not
care to wait until then.
nisnF.iAitn noHiiiE nii.i..
The change in rates was made ef
fective today in disregard of the Don-
ahue bill prohibiting this. This bill
has passed the loer house of the
state legislature, but it is hardly
thought that it will get through the

to be unconsitutional because retro

President of Bank Wants to Attend
The president of one of the leading
banks in this city remarked to the
writer not long ago that he "would
like to take a business course." The

but the banker Insisted: "I mean Just
what I say I would like to take a
course in business college." and then
he continued, "of course I do not In
