accommodate packers, herders, for

Fishing, hunting and motoring in
formation will be furnished covering

This modern age
puts Camels first
THIS age tried Camels and placed them first And it was
no half-way verdict. Never in the history of smoking was
a cigarette given a leadership like Camel has today.
To find why Camels arc the favorite, just try them.
You will find the perfect fragrance and taste of choice
tobaccos, rarely blended. You will experience a mellow
mildness that gives endless cigarette enjoyment!
For the choice of the modern age "Have a Camel!'
