The farms of the country contrib
uted about one-fourth of the man
power of the forces of the United
States engaged in the war.
It is cstimuteuwhut 1,200,000 men
who served in the Army, the Navy
and the Marine Corps were Dorn and
reared on American farms.#
A total of 4,5:19,048 men took out
War Risk insurance, their aggregate
policies totalling nearly $40,000,-
000,000, and each policy averaging
$8,700. Of tills total insurance,
service men from the farming dis-
t riots carried approximately $10,-
420,OtlO,000, and by far the greater
percentage of this insurance was
made payable to wives, mothers,
fathers and other relatives who re
side on farms.
The average age of the men who
fell in aetion, died of wounds or from
other causes during the war, was 211
years, and because of their youth, by
far the greater percentage were un
married men. Which explains why
4 7 per cent of the policies taken out
named mothers as beneficiaries, It!
per cent named fathers and' only 7
per cent named wives.

vision was made for the policies writ

to be continued as permanent Gov-

insurance it is necessary that the
men discharged from service con
tinue to pay their monthly premiums,
anti* at some time during tin* five
years following tlie formal declara
tion of peace that they convert into
a permanent policy.
From the record it appears thnt
only about 25 per cent of the men
who had Insurance during the War
are continuing to keep up their in
Tills is largely due to the
faet that the men were unfamiliar
with the provisions of the Act, or
