500,000 MEN DEB;
ALCOHOL BLAMED
NEW YORK, Doc. 14.?"The Iobb of 0
five hundred thousand men as the ro
suit of tho present warfare could bo ^
raado good In less than ton years
through complete abflttuor.ee from al
coholic beverages by all tho Inhabit
ants of Russia, according to Arthur ?
Hunter, a New York actuary, who ro- s
ported to tho convontioncof Tho As
soclatlon of Life Insurance Presidents
aomo of tho results oftan exhaustive c
mortality Investigation just coroploted p
by the life insurance-companies into
2,000,000 Iiisured Uvea In tho past 25
years. b
Mr. Hunter Is chairman of the con- 1
tral bureau of the Medico-Actuarial
Committee which had charge of tho >'
three and ono-half year Inquiry. The
Investigation dealt with tho experience 11
of tho United States and Canada In a 0
of forty-three of tho loading companies
of tho United States, and Canada in
a great many groups of insured per
sons supposed to havo a higher mor
tallty than the average among Insured ?
liveB. While the fundamental objoct ls
of the investigation was to aid the
companies in determining what rl3ks
in the future should bo accepted, rat- ^
ed up, or declined, Mr. Hunter said c
that tho results also could bo utUiz
cd to lengthen human life.
Taking up some of the specific rc- 3
suits of the Investigation. Mr. Hunter
said: "Nothing has been more con- c!
cluslvely proved than that a steady S1
free use of acohollc beverages, or oc- C!
caslonal excesses, are detrimental to
tho Individual. In my Judgment, it 3:
has also been proved beyond por
advonturo of doubt that total abstain
once from alcohol Is of value to hu
manity; it is certain that abstainers
live longer than persons who uso al
coholic beverages. Among tho mon
who admitted that they had taken al
cohol occasionally to excess In the
past, but whoso habits were consid
ered satisfactory whon they wore In
sured, there wero 289 deaths while
there would havo boon only 130 had
this group bcon made up of insured to
lives In general. Tho extra mortality
was, therefore over 50 per cent, which ar
was equivalent to a reduction in tho pt
average life of these men of over
four years."
One of tho most significant results
Df tho Investigation, ho said, was tho
aigh mortality experienced among rail- nc
road men. Among locomotlvo ongi- "
seers the mortality was 60 per cent '*
in excess of that among the Insured :;p
is a whole, which ls equivalent to five on
? ear's reduction In tho avcrago life

"Thore Is a general impression that
inloonkeepers do not live as long as
icrsons in non-hazardous occupa. th<
Ions," he continued, "but It is not Co
;cncrally known that most classes wh
i-hlch arc connected with either tho poi
nanufacture or sale of liquor havo a eri
ilgh mortality. Among saloon pro
irietors, whether they -attended the b<3<
?r or not, there was an extra wn? th<
allty of 70 per cent; and tho causes of
f death indicated that ? ?r?s <vf i
leohol beverages had caused many ed
f the deaths. In the fourtesn sub- clfe
ivlsions of the trades connected witi ap<
he manufacture, or cajo of alcohol,
lore was only one class which had a f
orraal' mortality and that was the Int
istlllery proprietors." cor
