Campus Interviews on Cigarette Tests
Number 18.. .the RACCOON
“They can’t trick an
old grad like me!”
hades of the roarin’ ’Twenties! Ali dudcd up in
his ancient benny — but he has modern ideas on testing cigarette
mildness! He's tried every “quickie” cigarette test in
the hook — and they're not fooling him one bit! He knows for dang-sure that
cigarette mildness can’t be determined by a cursory sniff or a single, quickly
dispatched puff. He doesn't have to go back to school to know that
there is one real test — a test that dispels doubt, fixes fact.
It's the sensible test... the 30-Day Camel Mildness Test,
which asks you to try Camels as your steady smoke —on a pack
after-pack, day-after-day basis. No snap judgments needed.
After you've enjoyed Camels — and only Camels — for
30 days in your “T-Zone” (T for Throat, T for Taste), we
believe you’ll know why ...
Mere People Smoke Camels
than any other cigarette!
