Two Mats and One Moral THE astute native of the Gilbert Islands in the South Pacific goes into battle protected by two mats. He wears one in front, to ward off the missiles of the foe. He ties the other on his back to protect him from members of his own tribe, who bring up the rear and throw rocks at the enemy. The wise motorist in this country, when he goes out to battle with traffic, is also doubly protected. For he knows that if he meets with an accident, his pocketbook is liable to be attacked from two directions. His property, savings, and good name may be threatened by legal action. To protect himself against damage claims, he carries Travelers Auto- mobile Liability Insurance. His bank account may also be whittled down by surgical and hospital expenses. To guard against this threat, he carries Travelers Accident Insurance for himself and his wife, sufficient to pay their accident expenses and provide him with a disability income. With both forms of insurance he gets the prompt, personal services of The Travelers representative and The Travelers continent-wide claim organiza tion, no matter when or where an accident hap pens. Hence, the Moral: Insure in The Travelers. All forms of insurance. The Travelers Insurance Company, The Travelers Indemnity Company, The Travelers Fire Insurance Company, Hartford, Connecticut.
