Boyd 808 Alabama Ave. Selma, Alabama OUR EMPLOYEE SELMA TIMES-JOURNAL, State Suing Alfa MONTGOMERY Three policyholders have filed a $25 million suit against Alfa claiming directors dipped into a $220 million surplus built up in three related insurance companies.

The suit contends the alleged surplus should have resulted in lower rates for policyholders, but instead profited the directors. The trio claims directors of three related mutual insurance companies improperly turned over assets to Alfa for less than fair market value and obtained numbers of shares of Alfa Corp." for their personal benefit. The suit, filed by Julian Elgin, Robert O'Connell and Lloyd S. Taylor, named as defendants the Alfa Corp. and directors of Alfa Mutual Insurance Alfa 1 Mutual General Insurance Co.

and Alfa Mutual Fire Insurance Co. Alfa formerly was known as the Alabama Farm Bureau Federation. Elgin, a former member of the board of the Montgomery County Farm Bureau Federation, said he was terminated as a director and a member after he complained about the matters covered in the complaint. Employment rises MONTGOMERYAlabama's unemployment rate dropped last month to 6.7 percent its lowest mark this decade, the state Department of Industrial Relations reported. The state's jobless rate stood at 7 percent in August, but it dipped three-tenths of a percent in September.

That's the lowest rate since May 1979, when the unemployment 1 mark also stood at 6.7 percent. The jobless rate in September 1987 measured 7.1 percent. Gov. Guy Hunt, speaking at Tuskegee University where he took part in the announcement of a $5.5 million grant to the school, said the jobless rate was "wonderful news." Hunt said the steady decrease in Alabama's unemployment rate and the creation of 62,000 new jobs in the last two years means a better way of life for Alabamians. Alabama's economic revolution is far from complete if we don't extend it to our rural counties, where our people have lived for too many years in the shadow of progress, never quite stepping into the light," he added.
