Certificates Limited by "Flu."


      As a precautionary measure, due entirely to the epidemic of Spanish Influenza, our Board of Directors at its December meeting passed a resolution requesting the Medical Department to withhold approval of all protection in excess of $2,000.00 asked for by any applicant.

      This affects but a small portion of the applications received at the Supreme Office and will work a hardship on no one. We feel confident that our field workers will recognize the wisdom of this action and cheerfully acquiesce in making it effective.

      With the passing of the epidemic this restriction will be promptly removed by the Board.


The Influenza Epidemic.


      As we go to press with this number of the Shield there are indications that the epidemic of Spanish Influenza is abating. For many weeks our country has battled with varying success against this unusually fatal disease.

      Life insurance corporations have never been called upon to stand a more severe test and there has never been a time when these agencies of practical help have more fully demonstrated their worth as an essential element in the home life of the nation.

      The Fraternal Societies have been called upon to an extent heretofore unheard of and upon every hand are evidences of the splendid efforts put forth to allay suffering and care for the unfortunate ones of the fold. They have demonstrated their ability to measure up to the demands of an extreme situation and in all their ministering there has been the warmth of heart and willingness of hand which is peculiar to those who have learned to respond to the teachings of brotherly love.

      Aside from the sunshine carried into the sick rooms and the consoling words and acts which mean so much to the bereaved, the cash benefits disbursed have reached almost unbelievable figures.

      In our own Society the death losses caused by this epidemic may amount to a million and a half of dollars before the list shall have been completed.

      It would seem quite unnecessary to suggest at such a time that membership in the Brotherhood of American Yeomen is to be highly prized and that those who now enjoy that blessing could confer no greater favor on friend or neighbor than to induce them to join with us in our glorious service to humanity.

      The Grand Foreman was authorized to make the payment from the general fund of the Society, of not to exceed $25, for each family found to be in needy circumstances, on account of the recent forest fires in Northern Minnesota, upon receipt of the report of the committee sent to investigate conditions in that part of the jurisdiction.

      “No person within the draft age for military or naval service under the laws of the United States shall be written for a larger sum than $2,000 of protection until after the Proclamation of Peace."

      And from the resolution or waiver, covering all members of the Society who become engaged in war work, Section B, which reads as follows:

      "No person within the draft age for military or naval service under the laws of the United States shall be written for a larger sum than $2,000 of protection until after the Proclamation of Peace."

      The Grand Foreman and Chief Correspondent were authorized to transfer the sum of $300,000.00 from the reserve to the mortuary fund for the purpose of paying claims.
