Washington, Jan. lit Kroin llfteeii
to twenty million dollars a year Is
the toll paid by the life Insurance
policy holders of this country as a re
sult of the lack of uniformity In state
Insurance laws and practices, accord
ing to 1 1. G. Fouso. This Is at least
live pur cent of the yearly 'payments
to polliy holders and beneficiaries, he
figures. Mr. Fouse, who Is president

"Some would seek to accomplish the
desired end through national laws and
supervision; others thioiiKh the hnr
moulxlug of state laws and radices.
For the present we are particularly
Interested In the latter. It Is a fact
that cannot be controverted that the
lack of harmony In laws and practices
has been a detriment to the business.
In recent years, however, we have
been drifting towards uniformity and
harmony, and there are many who be
lieve that the laws of the various
states can 'o made consistent and
homogeneoiti,, and that It would be
better for all concerned that the busi
ness be conducted under such Im
proved laws rather than under a cen
tralized administration. Hence, If the
uniformity hoped for tun lio accom
plished there will ,be no need of na
tional laws and supervision."
