A Recent Accident Turned My Thoughts

The T.C.U. Paid for

This Accident

One teacher fell from a stepladder the day before Christmas and hurt his back. It would have been a cheerless Christmas had he not been a T. C. U.

[ocr errors]

"A recent Accident turned my The T.C. U. Paid $35.00
thoughts to the T.C.U.," wrote a
Teacher recently. "Hereafter I
shall be protected from a financial
loss of such a misfortune."

These pictures represent a few of the many
Accidents which are constantly happening to
Teachers, and which cause them serious loss.

Every day we send cheques to Teachers somewhere, who have suffered Accidents, or who have been taken ill, or who have been quarantined to help pay for the loss of Salary and the extra expense incurred.

This month, even this week, many other Teachers will be kept away from

their work by Sickness, Accident or Quarantine. Those who are members of the T. C. U. will receive cash payments to tide them over their misfortunes. The others will be using up their savings and regretting that they did not join the T. C. U. before.

Will You Be Protected

[ocr errors]

When Sickness or Accident Comes to You? I

When you meet with an Accident, or become Sick, what will become of the
Savings you have accumulated?

Wouldn't it be distressing, to say the least, to find yourself burdened with an
expense of $200 to $300, caused by some unavoidable Accident or Illness, wiping
out the surplus you have accumulated, or leaving you deeply in debt?"

A Pennsylvania teacher wrote: "Kindly accept my sincere thanks for the promptness and dispatch with which the claim was adjusted. I assure you that the amount of your cheque was very welcome; all the more so because of the fact that the Christmas holidays had just passed, with the usual result that the pocketbook had been sorely depleted."

The big draft of Sickness, Accident and Quarantine is constantly exacting its thousands of Teachers. One in six is called every year. Any day your turn may come, and your name be called.

next term.

"There are many distinctive points of merit in these readers that make them superior to others that we have used. First, the subject matter appeals to the interest and imagination of children, and it is presented in so pleasing a manner that thoughtgetting is easy. The arrangement facilitates dramatization, which is so necessary in primary grades as an aid to the proper interpretation of the thought. I am especially pleased with the literary value of the selections. The illustrations are exceptionally attractive and the phonetic element is good."

HIS story of the great emancipator is, first of all, true. True in historical detail. True in both setting and dressing of scenes and characters. You know how intensely dramatic that stuggling log-cabin boyhood was. You know how moving it is even in cold print.

Benjamin Chapin


"The Son of Democracy"

You have often marveled that Lincoln's mother, who died so young, could have stamped an influence so indelible upon the boy's heart that it aided him till death, and set the lad's footsteps in the unshakable path of integrity, a path which he pursued till it led him to the most august post in the gift of the world's greatest republic, the presidency.


Nobody knows better than the teachers of our public schools that a motion picture merely built around this epic would be wonderfully thrilling.

-thrilling 'whether the boy's name was Abraham Lincoln or John Smith. -because revealing the actual hardships of a poor country boy's life around 1820, even without the foreknowledge of that boy's glorious destiny of leadership and sacrifice. But no, here you have the real thing, the fruit of the most careful research, produced and played
