It's no wonder Luckics taste so good. I've smoked them since 1917. "And another thing ... even after yelling out tobacco bids all during seven hour day, I-uckics arc still just as easy as ever on my throat." Only Lucky Strike offers you the finest tobacco'plus the throat- protection of the exclusive process "It's Toasted". This process takes out certain irritants found in all tobacco--even the finest. Men who know tobacco from A to Z--experts like Mr. Edwards --are surely good judges of cigarettes...Sworn rccordsshow that, among independent tobacco experts, Luckies have twice as many exclusive smokers as have all the other cigarettes combined.
