Being slower-burning, Camels are free from the drying, uncomfortable qualities of excess heat. They give you extra mildness and cxlrii coolness . . . always so welcome. Slower burning makes tlie most of the full, rich flavor of Camel's costlier tobaccos. Camels give you extra flavor . . . don't tire your taste. The extra smoking in Camels is a matter of the smokers' experience as well as of impartial laboratory record. So get more pleasure per puff ant! more puffs per pack. Get Camels.
