There has to be some explanation why, with 70 per cent ns many popular brand clgnrcts' available this' year ns in the smokiest, twelvemo nth our home front ever enjoyed, we still have so much trouble Betting a single pack of Luckics, Camels, Old Gold, chesterfields, or Pall Malls.

And finally there Is the so-called jlnck market .which government agencies are Investigating. Insiders jelleve that it is relatively unlm- ;ortaht, but does exist. Said one: "I've never been approached bj n black marketer, either.

But the paper, on which was written names of the father and son has been lost and although every one in the office remembers all ibou't the mustard, no one can recall the farmer's name or address.
