If There Were a Super-man IF THERE WERE ONE SUPER-MAN whose signature on pieces of sky-blue paper had the miraculous power to make your journey in foreign lands one unbroken trail of helpful attentions and personal courtesies, and at the same time was usable anywhere as actual money and always safe WOULD YOU GET THOSE particular pieces of sky-blue paper with that signature before you traveled anywhere? Would you? American Express Travelers Cheques are just such pieces of paper. For 30 years their money-safety, value and their helpful influence to travelers, has been growing around the world with the grow ing international influence of the American Express Company thru its thousands of correspondents and many separate offices. WORTHLESS UNTIL PERSONALLY counter-signed by the owner, these cheques insure themselves against theft or loss. They are convenient, simple, of nominal cost-absolutely necessary. FOR GREAT BRITAIN Sterling Cheques, 5 and to £. Franc Cheques, 200 and 400 francs-for France. Not subject to a varying exchange; proof against the sharp money changers. For the United States, Canada and all other countries, the Dollar Travelers Cheque. Buy them at Express Offices or at your own bank. FOR ALL JOURNEYS, secure your steamship tickets, hotel reservations and itiner aries, or plan your cruise or tour thru the American Express Travel Department.
