There are other things of greater importance. You want to be sure you receive long years of dependable service at low op erating and upkeep cost, and be sure the plant you install will do the things which are claimed. Delco-Light is not an experiment. It has gone through the refining influences of years of uctual farm usage. Today there are more than bo.UOU plants in daily use.

K. 1 Uncle Sam says of Life Insurance That $18,000 is the right amount for the young man in the army to carry. On this basis we say the right amount for the young man out of the army to carry is $5,000. As you grow older you can take more from time to time. We can write policies up to $100,000, but $10,000 will dry many tears.
