For the busy man: "A. American B. . A.B.A. Bankers Cheques Association The busy American business man appreciates the value of time. That is one reason why he appreciates "A. B. A." Cheques. He reasons thus: "My time is worth too much to waste in delays that come from being caught short of funds or from trying to cash checks and drafts where I am not known. At the same time there is too much risk in carrying a considerable quantity of cash. " 'A. B. A.' Cheques solve my problem, because they are as readily accepted as cash and are safe to carry. I con sider it good insurance against loss of time to have a generous supply of them." American Bankers Association Cheques are particularly convenient because they are readily accepted in payment of bills, and because the only identification needed is the countersignature of the owner in the presence of the person accepting them. Get them at your bank, or write Bankers Trust Company, New York, for booklet and information as to where they may be had in your vicinity. '"Mention the Geographic-It identifies you."
