i crewmen of the Pueblo in honor of the occasion.
Rumors had circulated in Seoul for several days that
the Pyongyang government would free the Americans
; * captured aboard the U. S. Navy intelligence ship last
; i January 23, and North Korea's Central News Agency
had promised "important reports” on a special Sunday
i • broadcast. But there was no word of the Pueblo or its
men from the Communists.
"We have nothing official and we've adopted a wait-
and-see attitude," said a U. S. military spokesman in

^"iage and then free the men later in front of newsmen to
maximum publicity. But the U. S. military said it
Z* Ijiad received no request for a meeting at Panmunjom.

to ask before you
Ask the man, “How many
insurance companies do you
represent?” If he says just one—
slow down. He doesn’t have much
choice to offer you.
Stands to reason you’re better off if you buy home, car or
business insurance from an agent who represents several
companies. An independent agent. He has a choice.
That’s why he can give you sound, impartial advice’aboul
which policy is best for you. And help speed a fair, fast settlement,
whenever you have a loss.
So you see buying insurance is really very simple. You
pick the agent. Let him pick the company.
This symbol is your assurance that we are professional
