DIM VISION H A V E 1'OUK EYES E X A M I N E D olitan Opera Star s why he prefers a light smoke Lauritz Melchior says: "The hardest test I can give a cigarette is to try its effect on my throat after hours of intense rehearsal I've found that alight smoke meets this test. And so, although I'm not a constant smoker, I favor Lucky Strike for the sakeofmy throat. And, incidentally, so does my wife. When ivc go back to Europe we never forget to take along a good supply of Luckies." An independent survey was made recently among professional men and women-lawyers, doctors, lecturers, scientists, etc. Of those who said they smoke cigarettes, 87% stated they personally prefer a light smoke. Mr. Melchior verifies the wisdom of this preference, and so do other leading artists of the radio, stage, screen, and opera. Their voices are their fortunes. That's why so many of them smoke Luckies. 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 the throat!
