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.
