MANY THINGS HAVE HELPED TO MAKE TRAVEL PLEASANT, BUT NOTHING MORE THAN THIS No one thing has contributed more to the pleasure of traveling-in the United States, in Europe, in the Orient or in South America-than the Travelers' Cheques of the American Bankers Association, popularly known as "A. B. A." Cheques. Imagine yourself in a strange place, far from home, where the banker does not know you and the hotel-keeper is suspicious because somebody recently passed a bogus check on him and where your credit has no standing with the people you meet. What good would your check do under such circumstances? None whatever, unless somebody "took a chance" out of pity for you and cashed the check or draft. Banks don't want their customers to be placed in such embarrassing positions, so they arrange to help them to have as pleas ant a trip as money can provide by selling to them "A. B. A." Cheques - "the best funds for travelers" They are safe, convenient and comfort-promoting.
