THE Government has reguested the entire output of .the
' 'making! "BULL" DURHAM tobacco. Our fighting
men need it and we give it gladly.
Only absolute necessities men, money, munitions, wheat,
ships, and now the "makings, " have been called.
One million six hundred thousand men are ready;, and
millions more to come. Unlimited billions in coin, and billions
waiting. The entire output of all our munition factories, all
our wheat; every ship we can justly lay our hands on and,
now, tobacco the "makings" 36,000,000 sacks, 2,000:000
pounds, one hundred carloads every month the utmost night
and day production of all the "BULL" DURHAM factories.
NEvery "BULL" DURHAM smoker in the land must
appreciate this call. It will come especially hard to the millions
ot men who have "rolled their own" with "Bull" for years,
who have, indeed, known no other tobacco, and who look upon
the little muslin sack as a close and very personal possession.
But even these men, every one of them, I know, will be glad
to give fully and wholly his share of a product, those who
know say is needed by our boys over there is necessary to
their morale, their comfort, their will to win.
In turning over to the Government our entire output of
"BULL" DURHAM, the American Tobacco Company has
but one regret: That, large as they are, its factories cannot
satisfy both the demand at home and the call from the front.
Of course, there can be no choice with us or with you.
The war-needs of our Government are our war needs our
- Men and money, powder and bullets, wheat and ships, and
now tobacco the ' 'makings, " to carry to our fighters ammuni
tion for courage, determination and hope ammunition tied up
in a little muslin sack and marked with a round paper tag.
Is there a man in all this united land who will not say:
"Here's to you, good old 'Bull.' Take to the boys over there
all you have been to me and more."
I am sure there is not certainly not among the thousands
who help to make "Bull," nor the millions who must, for the
present, give it up. j
