Even though the late Mr. Dutcher had been a subscriber to the Los Angeles Times for forty years it was not until two months before his untimely death that he afforded himself to the protection brought by the Times' Travel and Pedestrian Accident Insurance, which in his death has granted his widow and son a check for $1000.
Mr. Thompson and Mrs. Dutcher each hold one end of the check.
