50,000 Banks cash "A.BA." Cheques The banks of the world have such great confidence in the Travelers' Cheques of the American Bankers Association that 50,000 banks will cash the Cheques at full face value, and the only identification required is the counter-signature of the owner of the Cheque in the presence of the person cashing it. But usually it is not necessary to cash"A.B.A." Cheques, because hotels, railroads, steamship companies and merchants throughout the world accept them as readily as money in payment of services and purchases. "A.B.A." Cheques are safe to carry, since Cheques not countersigned which have been lost or stolen are of use only to the original owner, and may be replaced upon proper application. "A.B.A." Cheques are sold in de nominations of $10, $20, $50, and $100, and the premium charged is insignifi cant in view of the protection and convenience afforded the traveler. Get them at your bank Your bank is not supplied, write for book and information as to where "A.B.A." ques may be obtained in your vicinity.
