Here's why CAMELS are
the quality cigarette
* 1~)ECAUSE we put the utmost quality into this
■LJ one brand. Camels are as good as it's pos
sible for skill, money and lifelong knowledge of
fine tobaccos to make a cigarette.
Nothing is too good for Camels. And bear this
in mind! Everything is done to make Camels the
best cigarette it's possible to buy. Nothing is done
simply for show.
Take the Camel package for instance. It's the
most perfect packing science can devise to pro
tect cigarettes and keep them fresh. Heavy paper
—secure foil wrapping—revenue stamp to seal
the fold and make the package air-tight . But
there's nothing flashy about it You'll find no
extra wrappers. No frills or furbelows.
Such things do not improve the smoke any more
than premiums or coupons. And remember—you
must pay their extra cost or get lowered quality.
If you want the smoothest, mellowest, mildest
cigarette you can imagine—and one entirely free
from cigaretty aftertaste,
It's Camels for you.
