Are YOU Approaching
the Dead Line?

Persons can get insurance only when they don't want it. When they actually need it, they can't get it. "Too late” are harsh words.

If sickness and accident were a habit, we would all know how to provide for the financial burdens that follow in their wake.

But they are too generally regarded as natural events in the life of the other fellow, and only vague possibilities in our own.

Every teacher begins his work in September with one chance in five that he will lose at least a part of his salary, if not all of it, through sickness or accident, before the close of the term. And these figures are not idle guess-work, but are supported by the actual experience of every insurance organization.

Most teachers are confident of accumulating a snug sum before they grow old, THAT IS THEY MEAN TO, but few of them at age of sixty have anything to show for their life's work. WHY? Because their saving was all done TOMORROW.

Life is only a short span. Old age will be upon you all too soon. What then? Will you be able to look with confidence upon the possible loss of your health, your position, or upon dependency in your latter days, or will these things hold nothing but fear for you?

The New Year is upon us--the time for making, and keeping, good resolutions. Why not resolve to begin building for the future today? Why not let the E. B. A. help you do the paying when you are ill, or meet with an accident, thereby conserving your own funds? That's ECONOMY--or THRIFT-or whatever else you may choose to call it.

Reach for your pen this minute. Ask us to send you full information of the splendid work we are doing among teachers everywhere. Put the burden of proof upon us.

The best professional opinion of the country and the law of the Commonwealth agree upon a two year normal school training or its equivalent as the minimum standard for the teaching profession. By September, 1927, all Pennsylvania teachers shall have reached this standard.

High school graduates planning to teach should arrange to take the full professional course beginning in September. Partial certificates, however, will be granted on the completion of eight semester hours of professional work, additional to High School Graduation. Teachers in service should avail themselves of the summer and extension courses.

Competent faculties. Comfortable living conditions. Delightful locations. Opportunities for recreation. Free tuition. Reasonable rates for board and lodging. Registration fee ten dollars. Catalogs on request. Address the principal.

RESERVATIONS SHOULD BE MADE AT ONCE AS ENROLLMENTS ARE HEAVY
