Soldiers Have Privilege to lleistate
In su rance 11 ithinii Eighteen Months.
Only Itequired to be In Good Health.
Washintgtoij, July C.5.-iDischgarged
service imen who let their government
insurance lapse were given the privi
leg of reinstating their policies with
in eighteen months without ipayment
of back premimis, under an order
signed today by Secretary Glass.
The new reinstatement regulation,
on1e of a niumiber under coni Iderat ion
designed to make it possible for ev
ery discharged soldier, sailor and
marine to continac government. insur
ance after return to civil life, is re
garded as the most liberal ever of
fred by any insurance organizationl.
h'lie only requirement is that the man
requestinjg reinsta temelit must be in
as good health as at the t inic of dis
charge and must pay the premium for
the one mliolith of grace inl which his
isuraince was contined after he
stopped aiymelnt an1id the oremium fr
tie monlitt il w ich lhe l eiu ci ests reinl
staitllent. i'reiumii t for te inter
venling ml1on1ths will not. he required.
"Many Service men have been de
Iterred front reinstating policies ie
Causte they did not wish to pay, or
could not pay, the accumulated pre
miims," Director ('hol meley-.lones of
the war risk bureau said. "The new
decision permits a man to rehabili
tate himself financially after returning
to civil life and then take tuip his in
surance as an investment. The reason
payment for the month of grace is
required Is that the insured was pro
tected by having his policy continued
'a. force that month, and if lie had
died his dependelits iwould have re
ceived the face of the policy.
"F'hould a lapse again occur, after
the eighteen months from date of dis
charge, reinstatement may be made
provided such insurance shall not have
lapsd more titan one ye ar.
"I want to make it clear that the
new ruling does not automatically re
instate anybody's policy. Every man
who allows his policy to lapse is with
out protection until lie voluntarily a.;
iles for reinstatement, which I
strongly Irge all men to do at. once,
while their physical condition is such
that. reinstatement may be made.

board of appraisers has subintted a
report. recommending a flat refusal. In
stea(d of the $798,500 asked foi' the
principal claimant, the report recom
mends payment of $12,360 as a fair
and Just compensation for the pro
sper'ty and all (anmages (resulting from
Ie govern ilent's re(iu isition.
Lieutenant Colonel Ralph WV. Don
ges, chairman of the appraisal board,
fixed a maximum valuo of $100 per
acre as compared with $1,887 demand
ed by one claimant.
"It is needless to say," the board's
report said, "that every compelling
reason should be shown to warrant
such a remarkable Increase in valucs
as are hero claimed. It is reported
that there was paid about $2,000 per
acre -for Hog Island, within a mile or
two of the third greatest city of the
United States, and on the Delaware
river on which is a very great volume
of shipping. And yet that transaction
was made the subject of investigation
and much adverse criticism. Certain
ly a demand for the same price for
marsh lands six and one-half miles
from Charleston is cause for careful,
painstaking investigation to detmerine
the cause of j;uich pronounced jn.
creases from $8 an acre ia 1908 and
$35 in 1912 to over $1,800 in 1918."
