Because it is an association of Colored people, operated by nnd for tho protection of Colored people, and is not operated for profit. I 2. Its rates aro thoso of tho Na tional Fraternal Congress and there fore it Is enabled to maintain a re serve sufficient to moot tho increased mortality of its members In later years without resorting to taxes or extra assessments. 3. Because all certificates carry old age, permanent and total disability, accident, sickness, death, and burial benefits, thereby enabling any mem ber to cover in a single policy such protection as otherwise would requlro tho carrying of two or more policies in different companies at a cost in tho aggregato far in excess of tho rates offered by the American Woodinen. 4. Because there Is no discrimina tion In rates. The humblest wage earner pays no more than the profes sional or business man; age regulates tho rate. 5. Because your policy cannot lapso on account of illness or accident un less you so desire, for it pays benefits from beginning of illness or accident until tho restoration to health regard less of the time, whether measured In hours, days, weeks, months, or years. C. In the event of death from what ever cause, there is an amount vary ing from $230 to $2,000 to maintain and protect those who aro left de pendent. ' It has paid within the past sixteen (1C) years to Its members, $400,000. 7. Because, by giving employment to hundreds of Negroes, It opens tho door of hope to you. Its clerical force is composed of young men and women of the race, thereby giving an oppor tunity to earn a livelihood in a credit able way. 8. Because it is the oldest and strongest fraternal life Insurance so ciety for Colored people In America, It has $150,000 for the protection of its policyholders, nnd its solvency is unquestionable, being valued at one hundred per cent. 9. Because it accepts the member ship of women on the same basis as men, and allows them to affiliate in all matters affecting the camp to which they belong. 10. Because of Its fraternal feature, large numbers of men and women are brought into personal contact; thereby learning to guard and respect each other's interest, which ultimately de- velopes into a racial love that pro motes business. Then you , should waste no time to become a member. Local Office, 1315 East 18th St., Kansas City, Mo., L. D. HINES, Supervisor. Phones: Bell, Grand 317; Home, Main 3903.
