Over-mildness, for example--or over, richness--shows lack, of "balance" just as plainly as harshness or bitterness. On this .(basis, test Chesterfield. Arorna, smoothness, satisfying goodness, flavor, mildness, all present--but none emphasized at the expenses of others. The one goal is taste -- better taste, balanced taste-"TASTE above, everything" SUCH POPULARITY M U S T BE DESERVED g 1930, LIGGETT MYIM TOBACCOCa ROMANCE OF ALL GREAT FORTUNES MADE INAMERICA A'chlovoments of Rockefeller And Ford Wave Attracted Most Attention. Attaining Wealth A Prime Incentive Tho late Marl; Raima, a man of considerable we i l t h hlmeelf, is said to have- disparagin ;ly referred to cue of our greatest baukois as a man who had nothing but money. Popbosaod oC thl bentimeut, and on recoid ac one of mctst astute politicians that ever llve-d, it mifiht b - fair to impute to Mr. Manna the belief that hla record as a 1 public man greatly exceeded the reputation lie established ub a eucecMiful Industrialist, sas the American Metal Market.

Many question that this record will e-vor be duplicated at ain, particularly in respect to the amount of wealth accumulated in one Hue of industry over a similar period. Henry Ford probably haa more oloeety approximated the Kockofellei record than any other individual as h's vofet enterpiise today could bo unrjutgUonably be capitalized and dlsp-oeco of for several bililon dollars. Carnegie, Prick and tho Mellons made large fortunes and several oE tho bankers are reputed to be worth several Irmdrod mlllion«, yet their operations never engrossed the- public attention to tho extent or, did the- positions hetd by Rockefeller and Ford. These billionaires amassed their wealth in very d i f f e r e n t lines of enterprise, the Rockefeller millions coming from oil wells, the product ot which was marketed on a ncalo and in a manner never before attempted in d i s t r i b u t i o n . Foid, through thft poeeeysion of tho un umal combination ot exceptional busings and executive ability and mechann al j;eulu«, creates and marketed a veh cle that uot only hitrpaesed any of hid individual com- petltore In saleti volume, but became n byword in the industry the world around. Tho development and expansion of tho country ot com-ic cioated opportunities for arnassim; wealth, hitherto non-exlatfut, but those changes have not alone been ros,ioii6iblo for, o r | made possible the arnafbln^ of these j enormoue fortunes in such comparatively short periods but tho explanation would more probably be found HI tho facli(le3 of d l s t i l b u t i o n , railroads and steamships. Rumor's of fabulous wealth extracted from stock speculation cropped up almost dally during the rampant bull market, but It Is foafe to tay that fe-sv if any actually emerged from the maelstrom with any largo fortunes. Hls'ory repeated itself in that merit of tho plungore overstayed their m a r k e t vvlUi onormous pnpr-r profit*, to seo them i n p l d l y vanish during a pariocl when business and in- diibtriul coiaclltione did not seem 1o| w a r r a n t or preosri,"e the rapid C!P- nation Tho fortunes in U u r o p o as w e l l os in this c o u n t r y prior to tho advent of tho Standard Oil Company represented the a c c u m u l a t i o n s of f a m - ily fortunes ovrr many ge-ueiatioofc, but none of these, (, far as the records show, icached t h e t lupendous amounts t h a t are repreep-ntfd In tho fortunes of the Rockofellet and Ford famlliee.
