Alexander favors com pulsory life insurance, head of a family himself a wife and has children de pendent upon his support should make preparations for their care after death. The chief executive of the stute made this statement at neon at the first monthly noon-day luncheon of the Gem State association of Life Underwriters at which about 30 men engaged in the life insurance business and agents were in attendance. That me engaged in the life insur ance business were scientists of the highest type, was a statement also made by the governor and he pointed out tlie men who had figured out the death rate, learned the average length of life and wrote the policies, declaring that they had more to do in thi« life jthan merely write a policy for profit of themselves and company; that it was their duty to see that the policies which they .sold were plainly and right ly stated and never to forget that the policies were for the protection of widows and orphans. He emphatically declared that any men who violated the ethics of the association, which was for tlie purpose of putting life insur ance selling upon a higher and nobler plane, should have his license revoked and he declared the state of Idaho stood ready to revoke such a license when it was proven that misrepresentation had been made. He believes the ho has taken unto the ty of ion to of 20 of 21 22 of Life Extended. Spai The governor also pointed out that with the diminishing of alcoholic bev iges and narcotics that the span of human life was being extended and the near future the agents would get better premiums on the poll <V S sold. Otherwise the companies would become so powerful that the state would have to step in and take the insurance business In its own bands. He then declared he was in favor of compulsory Insurance and for the man who would not make an ef fort to protect his family after he was gone, he believed in making him pro vide that proteetto nand paying the rates in taxes. George F. Steele, state insurance commissioner, made a few remarks that i stating that the insurance department of the state stood ready t« perate • ith the association to see that the sel ' ' lers of policies stated tho facts of the 'policy squarely and plainly.
