London, Aug. 21. This war, a
Lomlnn paper points out, ia the first
great conflict in history which has
been fouirht on tobacco.
. In all previous war the nations
have supplied their fighter more or
less generously with food, equipment
and munitions, but rarely with lux
uries. In the present war public and
private agencies have been working
from the outset in all the belligerent
countries to provide the oldiers with
little "extras" and the chief of these
has been tobacco.
The British soldier almost uncount
able millions of cigarrttra and hun
dred of tons of amoking tobacco have
been sent, duty free. But despite
these enormou shipments, the con
sumption of tobacco in the British
Ules has steadily increased. The cost
of tobacco has increased 12e to 48c
Anxiety and nervous strain, insep
arable from a great war are held re
sponsible for the increase of smok
ing at home. Testimony from the
front that without generoue supplies
of tobacco the men could not with
stand the strain of the continuous
England's chief source of supply
is the United Slates, and the idea Is
entertained here that owing to the
war's possible interference with the
nrodurtion there and an increased
home demand, the amount available
for this country may be materially
lessened. Bonded stocks here are
even now dangerously depleted ow
ing t-i irT'ps"d imports.
France snd lt;ily. with lesa exten
sive sources of supply, have spared
no efforts to meet the tobacco needa
of their soldiers, and the same ia true
The German press is speculating
whether it may not yet become ne
resary to institute some system of to
bacco rationing for those smokers
