strategy, skill, and courage!
RIGHT ON THE NOSE! Consistent, ac

NO JANGLED NERVES for

afford jangled nerves! That's
why I prefer Camels."
Naturally Bob Bullock
appreciates mild smoking
POLO enthusiasts will agree
with Mr. Bullock that it takes
healthy nerves to play polo
nerves that don't fail in a pinch.
Bob Bullock says: "Camels deserve
the blue ribbon for mildness. I've
smoked Camels every day for years.
They never jangle my nerves!"
Mealtime (right) finds Bob en
joying Camels?for digestion's sake.
"Smoking Camels at mealtimes and
afterwards adds a world of enjoy
ment to eating," he says." "I'd walk
a mile for a Camel!'"
For mildness, flavor, and fra

costlier tobaccos are naturally
mild, fine-flavored, and fragrant. j
