Thus McCIoy defined the problem which officials here said Is the basic American concern about the futvre of Germany and Western Europe.

April 5. (/P>The government today ordered a rra-k-down ,011 what is called ''false and misleading advertising" by some major cigarette makers. The Federal Trade Commission directed (wo of the largest companies to halt certain claims that one brand of cigarettes is superior to another. Thc so-called "cease and desist" orders were against R. J. Reynolds Tooaceo Co., makers of Camel cigarettes, and Ihe P. tx)r- illarri Co.. producers of Old Gold. PTC said it also is considering similar action against the American Tobacco Co. and its Lucky Strike cigarettes as well as Phillip Kforrls. Ltd. and the cigarettes which bear that company's name. "All cigarettes contalng varying oX "t^ntlnt and throat irritants." Ihe commission salrt In announcing Its action, "and there is no reliable basis in fact for advertising claims that one brand Is superior to another" In these respects." FTC's action against the clga- rett- makers was the outgrowlh of pro-ccdings started In August, 1942. Its order that Camels and Old Golds halt what FTc found to be "false and misleading advertising" represents a final decision on thc part of the ccnimlsslon. The companies may appeal to the courts, however. Aside from the contemplated action against Lucky Strike and Philip Morris cigarettes, the commission said In its 4,000-word statement that Jt Is studying the idvextkirif practice* at p«U Mill cigarettes, made by American Cigarette and Cigar Co. of Durham, ri, *C. FTC trial examiners already have recommended Issuing the •cease and desist" orders against Lucfcy strike and Philip Morris. rrc said Its action on Camel and Old Gold was based primarily on a finding that those cigarettes "cannot truthfully claim » lower nicotine content because the obaccocs used by the manufacturers of all the leading clgaretU; brands contain nicotine In substantially the same quantities and variations." The agency asserted that this was proved by a scries of tests made by tlic food and drug administration at the request o'l the u-itle commlMloa. executive commillcc.
