JULY 15.1961... ROYAL-GLOBE ISTHERE Along the valley where Alexander the Great marched to India, a great S ribbon of asphalt unfolds. American know-how and American equipment are speeding a modern super highway from Afghani stan's capital of Kabul to Kandahar, 325 miles and fifty concrete bridges away. On one of the major battlefields of the Cold War, the U.S .A . is building increasing goodwill with every mile. And Royal-Globe is there! Over $7,000,000 worth of modern construc tion equipment is helping to accelerate the titanic project. Royal-Globe was chosen by the six American contractors-known as Afghanistan Highway Constructors-to insure not only the equipment, but all other risks against the hazards to be encountered in this remote corner of the earth. Royal-Globe is one of the strongest and most respected insurance organizations in the world, with a record of service going back to 1845. In the United States alone, Royal-Globe today has 175 field offices and 18,000 agents fully qualified to write policies against all types of risk. For intelligent protection, you would do well to see the inde pendent agent who represents Royal-Globe, or your broker. Be sure that the Royal-Globe Red Shield is on your policy!
