Ine lobacco Crop ear but that can't affect Chesterfield—why? ' -i«;i Production of tobacco* tuable for cigarette* or " roll your own." U. S, crop (average, 5 years, 1927-31) . 1,091,265,750 lb». U. S. crop (Govt. estimate, 1932) ... 751,601,000 Ibs. Estimated shortage, 1932 crop . . . 339,664,750 Ibs. The manufacturer of good cigarettes does not depend on any one year's crop. He knows that to keep up the quality of his brand, he has to carry on. hand at all times a large stock of the right kinds of tobacco from several years' crops. The domestic tobaccos are kept in large hogsheads, each containing about 1000 pounds, and are allowed to age for two full years—in other words, nature's method of curing the tobaccos. Something like ageing wine. Liggett & Myers has about four and a half miles of warehouses used for storing leaf tobacco, to make sure that its products are uniform and are as good as can be made. To do this requires a great deal of mouey—for example, there is invested in the domestic and Turkish tobaccos for Chesterfield Cigarettes over $75,000,000. Smokers can be assured, regardless of the crop conditions, that Chesterfield will be absolutely uniform—the same yesterday, today, at all times. The cigarette that's, milder—the cigarette that tastes better! <.-* % RHraHMffipwRHRI sterii *!**. fw.- - \ 4« s f.-* k, ) 19J), LiCGBtr & MYERS TOBACCO C >.
