President of Insurance Com

By Fokrest Dryden,
President Prudential Insurance Co.,
Editors Sote. Forrest Dryden.
president of the Prudential Insur
ance company of America is widely-
known throughout the insurance and
banking world. His own company is
one of the greatest financial insti
tutiiins in the world. His explana
tion of what is done with the millions
that vour into the insurance com
panys each year is an enlightening
article that gives to the public a new
conception of insurance ana us re
So the storv rnieht be carried on

Stand some morning in the office
of a lar?e life insurance company
when the mail is opened. See the
stacks of letters broucht in and
emptied on the receiving tables, and
let your imagination busy itself with
the stories that lie behind these en
velopes. There is a money order from
a cross-roads post-office only a few
dollars, yet a husband and wife have
ced for a month to purchase
the. nrotection it reoresents. Here is
a check for thousands a great cor
poration has insured the life of its

Stiff, formal envelopes, and poor
shabby envelopes some addressed
in typewriting, some in ink, some
with lead pencil in letters hardly leg

testimony to human faith. For the
people from whom these envelopes
come have never seen the office of
the insurance company nor met its
nffirers! thev are entrustins the dear
est thing in the world the protec

men whose names even are almost
unknown to them. Surely there is
no more solemn trust than this. I
pity the insurance man, no matter
how familiar the sign . may be to him
who can watch the morning mail be
inp ooened without feeline a renew
ed and deepened sense of obligation
at this vast, silent, ritual of Confi
dence and Faith.
Where the Money Goes.
Now what becomes of these mil
lions that are sent to the insurance
companies from families all over the
world? Are thev kert piled up in
banks? Some of them are, for sound
insurance practice dictates that the
company shall always have a large
reserve in cash. No one knows when
a catastrophe or an epidemic may
come, making thousands of families
suddenly dependent the insurance
comtianv must be alwavs prepared.
But what of the rest the millions
and millions which will not be need
ed hv the policyholders for years?
In ft. Paul's Cathedral in London
there is a single slab marking the

might be written of the dollars which
vou. and vou. and vou. have entrust
