, Feb. 1 1, 1960 Monroe Monitdr, Monroe, Wash. PAGE SEVEN Veterans Can Use GI Dividends To Guard Against Insurance Loss More than a million veterans who have GI life insurance policies are using their regular annual dividends to guard against the loss of their insurance, the Veterans Administration tsaid today. LID Bond Issue Purchased By NW Mutual Co. entire bond issue of $25,900 Monroe Local Improvement Dis- trict No. 56, has been purchased by the Northwestern Mutual In- sm'ance Company of Seattle, ac- cording to Harold Fankhauser, lo- cal agent for the company. This increases the company's total muni- dpal bond inve.Ctments in Monroe to $110,900. Pro'pose of the LID bond issue was to pay the costs of paving streets plus curbing and street dredge facilities in the Codar- green Addition of town. Ntmmrous civic improvement projects suda as ths, throughout Washington and other western states, are financed by the fire and automobile insurance company through its municipal bond invest- anent program; a veay of putting insuran premium dollars back to work in areas from where they or- iginated. The company's bond pur- O chase was made through a Seattle investment firm that handled the financing for the LID. Flood Control (Continued from Page 1) Co2. R. P. Young of the Umted tates Engineers appeared before the cornmKtee t Snohomish with a similar suggestion. Skykomfsh Has Problem Mayor Bob Crtmapler of Skyko- mish appeared before the commit- tee at Sutan asking for help in re- placing 675 feet of dyke which washed out during the high water which hit his rwn in December. The' washed out dyke, installed as a W.P.A. project during the de- pression, proects a hrge area along the Skykomish in the north- ern part of town involving some sixteen homes. He explained that a small town has not the resources to rebuild a dyke of this 'length, yet it is im- portant that the work be done to protect the conmaurity. Game Department Trouble Cited Mrs. Tom I-Iiggaas told the com- mitoe th they had made appli- cation to the game commssiun to close off a slough on their place • west of Sultan and that the delay in approval of their project had cost them between four and five acres of good farm land in the last flood. Governmental Subdivisions Testify The hearing was prefaced by the i_ntruetion and brief remarks of interested spokesmen of various govemmeal strbdivisions. These in,uded Murray Walker, state Di- vision of Hydeaulies; John Sergert- son, L. O. Barrett and William Btfilard of the U. S. Forest Serv- ice; Emory Wilcox, U. S. Depart- ment of Agriculture, also represent- ing the SSa Departme of Agri- culture; Larry H, all, chairman of ,the Advisory Committee of the Leg- islative Council sttee on Naturel Resources and Water Re- sonrces; Joe Buswell and Col. R. The VA recently announced that $253,500,000 in dividends would be paid during 1960 to more than five million veterans and servicemen who hold participating GI insur- ance. The proportionate sh, are of this national 1960 dividend total to be paid to Pacific Northwest veterans is $4,011,150 to an estimated 79,626 in Washington State; $2,893,800 to 57,582 in Oregon; $936,000 to 18,- 743 in Montana; $834,600 to 16,714 in Idaho; and $148,200 to 2,989 in Alaska. GI policyholders may have these annual dividends held--with inter- estby the agency as a credit to pay premiums monthly if the poli- cyholders fail to pay them before the end of the 31-day grace period. This procedure is followed auto- maticaily if the policyholder does not request other disposition of his ,annu,al dividends, the VA explain- ed, but the policyholder has two other options. He may use his annual dividends to pay policy premiums in advance, or he may request the VA to pay his dividends in cash, the VA said. Holders of permanent plan poli- cies have a third option. They may authorize the VA to hold annual dividends on deposit with mtcrest and subject to withdrawal on re- quest. If not withdrawn, the mo,my and accrued interest will inccease the value of the policy, the VA added. A policyholder who wishe €o change his dividend option, should write to the VA district office wbSeh services his policy, the VA said, making sure to include his insur- ance number and to state his new option. thy of Sultan made up the mem- bers of the commiKee present for !the hearing.
