SEA ANEMONE (ActiniariaAnthozoa) UNLIKE the wild flower which it resembles in name and rivals in beauty, the sea anemone is neither a plant nor a harmless decoration. It belongs to the animal kingdom and preys upon small sea animals, which are attracted to its petal like, poison-laden tentacles. So alluring are some anemones and so quickly acting their poisons that certain species of crabs use the anemones to catch and kill marine animals for food. Like the sea anemone, some of the automobiles you meet in traffic or on the road are not what they seem. To the eye, they are beautiful mechanisms de signed for pleasure and utility. But sometimes they prove to be juggernauts, crowding you off the road or crashing into you. And then, even though you are not at fault, you may have claims for damages, even lawsuits, inflicted upon you. There is no escape for thevictims of the seaanem one, but for people who own and operate auto mobiles there is insurance. Many improvements in coverage and service have been made since The Travelers issued the first automobile policy thirty nine years ago. Adequate protection is available, and necessary. Moral: Insure in The Travelers. The Travelers Insurance Company,The Travelers Indemnity Com pany, The Travelers Fire Insurance Company, Hart ford, Connecticut.
