THE EXTRAS IN CAMELS MADE THEM HIS CIGARETTE THOSE EXTRAS IN SLOWER-BURNING CAMELS SURE CLICK WITH ME j THE "EXTRAS" of costlier, slower-burning tobaccos have made Camels the No. 1 cigarette in the field. And the explanation of these extras in Camels is just as scientific as it is logical. Too-fast burning in a cigarette creates excess heat. Excess heat ruins the delicate elements of mildness and flavor. Slower burning preserves flavor and aroma... naturally gives a cooler smoke. Camels, with their cost lier tobaccos, give you extras that you won’t find in any other cigarette—even a slower way of burning that means extra smok ing per pack (set panel at right). EXTRA MILDNESS EXTRA COOLNESS EXTRA FLAVOR In recent laboratory teats, Camels burned 25% slower than tho average of tho 15 other of tho largest selling brands tested — slower than any of thorn.
