I have done a great deal of public?speak* ing, on the floor of the Senate,- over the radio and at conferences. Necessarily this results in a strain on the voice.'So naturally, in smoking, I have to think of my throat—and I have found that a light smoke is suitable to my throat." HON. GERALD P. NYE U. S. SENATOR FROM NORTH DAKOTA In a recent independent survey, an overwhelming majority of lawyers, doctors, lecturers, scientists, etc., who said they smoked cigarettes, expressed their personal preference for a light smoke. Senator Nye's statement verifies the wisdom of this preference and so do leading artists of radio, stage, screen and opera, whose voices are their fortunes, and who choose Luckies, a light smoke. You, too, can have the throat protection of Luckies-a light smoke, free of certain harsh irritants removed by the exclusive process "It's Toasted". Luckies are gentle on your throat.
