"Rom where I sit"
_ 6y Joe Marsh
/ Yes Sir,
/Insomnia’s
Contagions!
When Bad Swenson had
trouble sleeping nights, and
triad to get over It by turning
ap the radio full blast, ba
Started an epidemic of Insom
nia all over.
Folks finally dropped a hint
te Bud that he close the wlnd
m or turn th^. radio a little
lower. Bnd did—and that waa
the quickest cure for other
folks' insomnia I’ve ever beard
at!
Not that any of ns object to
the radio, or swing bands, or
anything else that helps another
person relax of an evening.
(Myself, I like a glass of beer
with a Mt of cheese before 1
go to bed. I can’t speak for
From where I sit, good nelgh
horllness means nothing more
than simply respecting the
other person’s tastea and rights
—without forcing your own
tsstss or opinions down hia
throat. And that goes for Bnd’a
radio, my glass of beer, or what
ever temperate plessurf you
happen to enjoy.

STRONG FINANCIAL POSITION
Assets increased $21,287,625 in 1948—now total
$221,144,911. Surplus, capital, contingency re
serves total $26,200,000, an unusually high ratio
of additional funds for protection of policyholders.
For every $100 of liabilities there are $113.44 of
assets.
YEAR OF RECORD ACHIEVEMENT
(1) New tales largest in history—$122,365,121.

•EXPANSION PROGRAM
A 1948 highlight in Jefferson Standard's expansion
was the opening of eight new branch offices:
Albuquerque, Baton Rouge, Boise, Mobile, Mont
gomery, Portland (Ore.), Seattle and St. Louis.
JEFFERSON FAMILY PROVIDER
A new policy plan for preferred risks was made
available to the public in 1948—low cost pro
tection tuned to high cost of living needs.
JEFFERSON STANDARD'S
PRESIDENT reports on
42-year Record of Service
to the Public
'The aim of the life insurance business is to provide financial security. j
This is a service now given high public acceptance. In the Jefferson
Standard, as in all other well managed companies, we carry with us in our j
daily operation a keen sense of fiduciary responsibility.
"The reports for the year tell the story of our work. The safety of
policyholders funds, the extension of service to new fields, the development
of new policy contracts, the over-all stability of Jefferson Standard should
be a matter of greot satisfaction to our policyholders.
