The Traveling Fortress CLAUSILTA TRIDENS, like the other snails in its genus, has a shell at whose base is a small lid or door. Clausilia can open or shut this lid at will. When on a journey, the snail can never tell when danger will strike. So he carries his shell along and when he meets an enemy he retreats into his traveling fortress and closes the door up tight. Thus he is protected from the danger without. In the story of Clausilia tridens there is a lesson for every man who owns an automobile. For the automobile owner, every time he sets out on a journey in his car, is exposed to many dangers, too; and he needs a "lid" which will protect him from as many of these perils as possible. Fortunately, there is such a lid and it is called insurance. If you injure someone in a motor acci dent, Travelers auto liability insurance will relieve you of worry. It will settle claims amicably, out of court,when ever possible. It will lift attachments which might otherwise be fastened on your car, your bank account, your home, or your earnings. If you are sued, it will provide for your defense, cover the costs and pay any verdicts within the limits of your policy. And since there are Travelers represen tatives in all parts of the U. S. and Canada, all details are taken off your shoulders promptly. In case you, yourself, are injured, Travelers accident insurance will take another big worry off your mind. Your hospital and medical expenses can be taken care of. And, during the time you are unable to work, there can be a Travelers check coming in to replace your pay check. See that you have an air-tight lid before you venture forth on the road. See that you have both automobile and personal accident insurance ade quate to your needs. Your local Travelers agent will be glad to ex plain to you these two important types of insurance. Moral: Insure in The Travelers. All forms of in surance.
