miles out of town. The wiring crew
has been delayed for lack of material
and it has also encountered difficult
work in stringing the wire out of

Present-day smokers find their
sheerest enjoyment in Camels
THE people of this age spend millions for the good things
of life. And they place Camel first among cigarettes.
Modern' smokers make money, but when they spend it
they insist on quality, and more people today buy Camels
than ever bought any other cigarette.
Camel value has won the modern world. Money cannot
buy choicer tobaccos, nor a more glorious blending. That's
why increasing millions in the modern age single out this
famous smoke as their favorite. You, too, will find it
"Have a Camel!"
