The Attitude of the Insurance Companies

The Weekly Underwriter, an insurance newspaper, recently addressed the following questions to a number of life insurance companies:—

1. Does your company accept applicants for insurance when it knows they are Christian Scientists?

2. If it does, are they restricted to any plan of insurance?

3. Do you consider that as a class Christian Scientists are sufficiently above the average as regards the observance of ordinary rules of health, morals, etc., to offset the extra risk from lack of skilled medical attendance in case of sickness?

The Underwriter says editorially: "Of the thirty-eight companies which have replied to the question whether they take risks of this class without reserve, twenty-nine answer in the affirmative and but nine in the negative."
