Article

HOW GOOD A BUY IS TERM INSURANCE?

Permanent life insurance usually provides more economical long-term protection than term because the "net cost" (premiums paid less cash value) will be lower. But the premiums on term insurance are lower, and term is very useful when you need short-term protection, or when you need more protection than you can afford to buy in permanent form.

SHOULD YOU SAVE WITH CERTIFICATES OF DEPOSIT?

The big appeal in commercial bank certificates of deposit-- also called savings certificates, investment certificates, income bonds, and savings bonds-- is their high rate of interest. The interest paid on them runs from 4 to 5 percent, a cut above the 3½ to 4 percent paid on regular commercial bank savings accounts-- and comparable to the 4½ to 5 percent interest that is paid on passbook accounts by mutual savings banks and savings-and-loan associations.

BIRD CAGES

A bird in the hand may be worth only two in the bush, but a rare bird cage in hand could be worth a thousand dollars or more. For the truth is that bird cages are no longer strictly for the birds. They're now for the collector, too, and the search for early ones, including many ornate types, is on in earnest.

SANTA FE AND THE OLD WEST

Hundreds of years ago, Spanish explorers combed New Mexico's highlands and deserts for seven legendary cities of gold-- where natives ate from gold dishes, sailed in gold-trimmed canoes, and drank from silver goblets. Today the seven cities are still waiting to be found, but on this tour by Editor Peter Lindberg you will find other treasures, just for the looking: mesquite and pine-cloaked mountains rolling up from vast desert land; colorful cities that still boast their Spanish and Indian heritage (handmade jewelry to incendiary Mexican food); ancient cliff dwellings and sun-baked Indian pueblos; Carlsbad, one of the world's largest caverns-- and a sea of shimmering dunes called White Sands.
