TWENTY-FIVE years ago today, a young couple stepped on board a train in a shower of rice and good wishes. They were setting out on a honeymoon ex cursion to Niagara Falls. And they were care free as two children. For the responsibility of a home and posses sions was not yet theirs. Behind them they left nothing but their few wedding gifts. Their most valuable assets-youth and ambition traveled with them. Today, on their silver wedding anniversary, this same couple is setting out on another trip, a second honeymoon. They have prospered with the years. This time they are going on a cruise, and leaving behind them a home filled with all the posses sions a family accumulates in twenty-five years. Under its roof are their household things, many of their personal valuables, and even their recent anniversary gifts. Yet they are not worried about these things they left behind. They are, in fact, as carefree as the day they set out on their first honey moon. For these two were wise enough to foresee that burglars might break in during their absence. And they were wise enough to have ample burglary insurance, in a good insur ance company. Moral: Insure in The Travelers. Whether you go away this summer for a month or only a week-end, you need a Travelers Resi dence Burglary policy to protect your things. It pays for what a burglar steals and for the damage he does. And frequently The Travelers is able to recover heirlooms that could never be replaced. A Travelers representative can help you determine the amount and the man ner in which your policy should be written.
