Cigars Most Popular Senate Smoke; Cigarettes Rank Next Missing Button Finally Forgiven By RUSSELL TURNER Uniled Press StalT Correspondent WASHINGTON CUP)--Cigars only enjoy a sizeable lead over other forms of tobacco in popularity amon^ members of the United Stales senate, a survey of the (96 senators Indicate. Cigarettes, however, were rated nearly on a par with cigars, and are acceptable to nearly all members, especially when "they wish to smojte and time (toes not permit a cigar. Pipe smoking trailed along with few advocates, while only one open .champion was found for the chewing tobacco. ' '•. Snuff, usually classified in the same general-category with tobacco, apparently had toppled from he heights of popularity it once enjoyed to a- point where its use was rated at the zero mark. -The hand-finished silver snuff- jpxes which repose on each of the 36 members' desks are -always filled, but their contents are usec only when a venturesome arid Intrepid senator suffering from a cold braves himself to try the snuir cure, scnale clerk Lesler L. Bidle who handles such matters as snuffbox filling, told the United Press Not since the late Sen. Lee s Overman, D., S. C., died in 1932 has any member partaken of the contents of the beautiful boxes as a regular habit, Riffle -said. The chamber's lone tobacco chewer Is Sen. William J. Bulow D., S. D., who has never smoked One of the most familiar figures around the senate wing of the Capitol is that of Sen. Hugo Black, D., Ala., who almost invarl ably, when off the floor, has a large b'ack. unllghted cigar clamped be tween his tcelh. When the "end ha become mere shreds and can hard ly be held in his mouth, he dis cards it for a fresh one. Rarely, if ever, is the cigar lighted. Much amusement was enjoyed by congressional observers recently when smiling countenances of various senators began, appearing In advertisements of: a popular cigarette. In each Instance, the endorsers were known to be invet- erale cigarelte smokers. Two of the first photographs to appear were those of Sens. Gerald P. Nye, D., N. D.. and Robert J. Reynolds. D., N. C. Both arc usually seen with a cigarette in their mouths or held In their hand—the same brand which they endorsed. Reynolds' endorsement, however, resulted in much eyebrow-lifting. Reason was that his state, NorUi Carolina, Is Ihc home of the largest competitor of the cigarette he endorsed. Vice-president John Nance Gar. ler is an Inveterate cigar smoker So are Majority Leader Joseph T Robinson and Sen. Arthur H. Van denberg, R, Mich.
