Oviboves Moschati: SOLID, FROST-PROOF CITIZENS THE MUSK OX, as his Latin name, "ovibos." implies, is a "sheep-cow" and in some respects combines the best features of both animals. Like wild cattle, such as the bison, he grows a long, shaggy coat of hair. Underneath this outer coat, is an inner coat of woolly fleece, which he has borrowed from his wild sheep relatives. Thus protected, ovibos moschatus becomes one of the Western Hemisphere's most frost-proof citi zens. Because of his double coat, he can travel farther north in the Arctic than most other her bivorous animals. Like the musk ox, a motorist can provide him self with a double coat of protection and travel far from his home. Against the damage he may do to others with his car, he can protect himself with automobile liability insurance. And besides that, he can provide himself with a second, important coat of protection: Accident insurance, to take care of the physical damage others may do to him. In fact, the insurance made necessary by the oper ation of a car is something which every owner should discuss with a Travelers agent or his own insurance broker. Properly protected, the automobile owner is practically "loss proof," and can travel anywhere he pleases, free from worry. With its thousands of representatives in this country and Canada, The Travelers can give on-the-spot service, if or when you get involved in an accident. Moral: Insure in The Travelers. All forms of insurance. The Travelers Insurance Company, The Travelers Indemnity Company, The Travelers Fire Insurance Company, Hartford, Connecticut.
