THERE’S no other sport on the calendar to
compare with smoking a jimmy-pipe packed
with P. A. Indoors and out. Any season. You

the wonderful taste of Prince Albert!'
Cool as an over-cut notice from the dean.
Sweet as the thoughts of a holiday. Fragrant as
woodland flowers after a spring shower. P. A.

The Prince Albert process fixed that the day
P. A. matriculated.
o Come out for this major sport. Get yourself
a tidy red tin at that nearby smoke-shop where
they hand out P. A. sunshine. You and Prince
Albert are going to be great buddies right from
the start. Because there just never was another
tobacco like Prince Albert!
