41~ I DA "See, Mom... I can really walk again!" Who can know the joy little gi Tommy's mother feels today? The months of anxiety are S over. Now she knows her little boy won't have to face life crippled by infantile paralysis. Soon he'll be coming home . . . able to run and play again like other boys. And she won't have to depend on charity and friends, or worry about how to pay for the skill and care that have brought her son back to her-even though her husband is no longer here to help. Years ago he planned wisely and gen erously for his family's future. With the friendly advice of his Prudential agent, he provided an income for his wife and extra protection until his child was grown. What Kind of Life Insurance Should a Father Have? For men with young children, life insurance should do a double job. It should not only pro vide permanent protection for your wife-but also extra, temporary protection while your children are growing up and still dependent. To fill this need, The Prudential offers a policy called the Modified 3-20. Q Exactly what is a Prudential Modified 3-20 policy? A: It is a low-cost life insurance policy avail- able in initial amounts of $5,000 or more, and made up of two equal parts. One half of the policy is permanent life insur ance and protects your family as long as you live. The other half is additional,temporary pro tection that lasts for 20 years. Q: And what happens after 20 years? A: You may convert the temporary half to permanent insurance if you wish. Otherwise it ceases and the premium rate is reduced.
