One of tho

to Equitable Policyholders Increased

The continuing progress made by The
Equitable Society has made it possible
to extend additional advantages and services
to our policyholders.
Among these is an increase in the divi
dends to be paid to policyholders in 1944,
applying to most types of individual policies.
This action reflects the favorable trend of
mortality experience in recent years and the
continued financial progress of the Society.
During the past several years, the Society
has been substantially strengthening surplus
and reserves. This has now progressed to the
point where it is felt that an increased dis
tribution of dividends for 1944 can prudently
be made.
A total of $33,000,000 has been appor
tioned for distribution this year as dividends
on individual policies. This compares with
$29,020,000 returned to policyholders in 1943.
Including group insurance, the total amount
set aside for dividends on December 31,1943
is $41,400,000, compared with $36,802,000
on December 31, 1942.
* * *
Every DAY OF THE YEAR, an average of
$587,000 in benefits was paid by the Society
to Equitable families—a total of $214,388,
000 in 1943. This included payments of $1,
552,000 to the families of 547 members of
our Armed Forces who died in service while
protected by individual Equitable policies.
As a service to the nation, The Equitable
has developed, through its group insurance
facilities, a program of world-wide life in
k *
S
surance protection for civilian employees of
the United States Government serving over
seas. This gives the American serving his
country as a civilian, protection comparable
to that provided for members of the Armed
Forces under National Service Life Insurance.

* • *
USING A PART of their current earnings to set
up permanent protection for the future, thou
sands of far-sighted families throughout the
nation created a total of $294,544,000 of new
Equitable protection last year under individ
ual policies. Equitable group life insurance
increased $352,548,000 last year. In all,
3,050,000 persons now own $8,445,578,000
of Equitable life insurance—a record high.
* * *
DURING 1943, the Society’s assets crossed the
three billion dollar mark. The Society pur
chased $458,850,000 of U. S. Government
securities last year, and at the end of 1943
owned $981,351,000 of such securities.
Today, Equitable funds are thus helping to
speed victory through investments in the securi
ties of the Government and American indus
tries. And when the war is won, Equitable
funds, directed into sound and diversified busi
ness enterprises throughout the country, will
help industry provide jobs for our returning
soldiers and for workers now making war
equipment.

At home with the family of Richard R, Mann,
Equitable policyholder of Columbus, Ohio
The future is bright
for Dick Mann's family
Some time after the war in won, Dick and Ber
nadine Mann plan to build the house thev’ve
dreamed about ever since they were married.
Bernadine is eager for a modern kitchen.
Dick wants a furnace he doesn't have to
stoke. Seven-year-old Anita’s desire is a big
yard so she can have a dog, and five-year-old
Shirley asks for "a swing that hangs from a
tree.” Richard Jr., age one, is too young to
express an opinion, but he'll want plenty of
room to romp in.

Right now, the Manns rent a house, in Co
lumbus, Ohio. Dick is a war worker at the
Capitol Manufacturing and Supply Co.
The Equitable insurance he owns is play
ing an important part in his plan for living.
Dick himself was one of ele-ven children, and
as he says, "We had pletaty of hard times.
When I started working, I made up my mind
that, as far as possible, I'd see there were no
rainy days for my family. Every family is
entitled to security, and life insurance is the
best way I know to get it.”
The Manns look forward, some day, to
"taking it easy.” His wife says, "Dick and I
were surprised to find how much retirement
income for our older years, as well as pro
tection now, we were able to arrange when
we sat down with our Equitable agent and
worked out a program combining our Social
Security benefits, Dick’s group insurance and
his individual Equitable policies.”

At the moment, little Anita says she is going
to be a trained nurse when she grows up.
One thing the Manns know is that whatever
careers the children choose, there will be
money available for their training.
"I never went to college, and neither did
Bernadine, but you can bet our children are
going to have the chance we missed,’*
Dick says. "That's one important part of my
Equitable program—an education fund for
each of the youngsters. To us that's the
American way—knowing your children will
have a better opportunity than you had.”

In the erening, when the baby has been pul
to bed, the Manns like to talk about their
plans for the future. That new home they
will build, "just a nice bus ride from Colum
bus”—the advantages they plan for their
children—their own hopes for leisure some
day.
Like so many other American families,
these are the things the Manns are building
toward, saving for, planning on.
