THE HERMIT CRAB (Genus Paguridae) THE HERMIT CRAB has no natural armor equal to the hazards of undersea life. Even age does not harden his skin. So, as soon as the hermit crab becomes old enough to shift for himself, he seeks the perma nent protection of an unoccupied mollusc shell. And he carries it with him always, leaving it only to move to larger quarters as he grows. It is both his armor and his dwelling. In a way, he is like the average man, who when he starts to shift for himself, is without armor against financial hazards. But, man, too, can find permanent protection, through life insurance. And that protection can be fitted to him, as he grows responsibilities and income. Moral: Insure in The Travelers. All forms of insurance.
