Youl! enjoy the
sport of rolling
'em with P. A.!
FIRST thing you do next
- go get some makin's
papers and some Prince
Albert tobacco and puff away
on a home made cigarette
that will hit on all your
smoke cylinders!
No use sitting-by and say
ing maybe you'll cash this
hunch tomorrow. Do it while
the going's good, for man-o
ma.i, you can't figure out
whatyou're passing by! Such
flavor, such coolness, such
morc-ish-ness-well, the only
way to get the words em
phatic enough is to go to it
and know yourself!
And, besides Prince
Albert's delightful flavor,
there's its freedom from bite
and parch which is cut out by
our exclusive patented proc
ess! Certainly-you smoke
P. A. from sun up till you
slip between the sheets with
out a comeback.
Prince Albert is the tobac
co that revolutionized pipe
smoking. If you never could
smoke a pipe - forget it!
-if you use Prince Albert
for packing! It's a smoke
revelation in a jimmy pipe
or a cigarette!
