When you buy a Liberty National lnstirance Policy, you'll see the agent who sold it to you every now and then. He'll call or drop by to see you. Ask if you have any problems or questions you'd like to talk over. You'll get lots of personal attention. And that's pretty rare these days. In an age when so many things are cold and impersonal, Liberty National still manages to do business on a very personal basis. One-to-one. LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY Florala, Aid. (
