Cigaret TV Ads End Jan. 1 Tobacco Industry Plans New Type Of Advertising WASHINGTON (UPI) - Cig- aret commercials go off the air in a lavish midnight farewell Jan. 1 but the tobacco industry is using all of its marketing ingenuity to fill the void. Among other new promotions next year, cigaret makers will sponsor auto races, a Canadian golf tournament, a bowling tourney called the Winston-Salem Classic and a series of women's tennis matches dubbed the "Virginia Slims Invitational." Sales, not sporting blood, is the motive. The August issue of Tobacco Reporter, a trade journal, explained it this way: "The advertising has been banned, but not the appearance of the product during the feature programming. Booster Card Sections? '"For instance at a stock car race one or more of the participating vehicles will have a cigaret promotion blurb on its side. In following the race the television cameras will pass fence advertisements while the pit crews and winners will be smoking with the cigaret pack prominently displayed. "Such will hold true for any number of sporting events that appear on television.. The new law bans all radio and television cigaret commercials effective at midnight Jan. 1. But the networks will get a last draught of money from an industry which has provided about year in the United States. The industry, still contending its product has not been proved harmful, hopes smokers will puff on. It cites increased cigaret consumption in England, Italy and other countries where cigaret commercials also are banned. Legal Challenges The law also means U.S. stations no longer will have to carry anti-smoking commercials, which were required to counter the cigaret blurbs. All three networks have said they plan to continue anti-smoking announcements, but fewer are expected. Two court actions could change the situation. In one, owners of six radio stations have asked a federal court to declare the law banning cigaret commercials unconstitutional. A hearing is expected in late January. The other, filed by the cigaret industry, claims that the same "fairness doctrine" which prompted anti-smoking messages should -- in the absence of cigaret commercials -- require prosmoking rnessa§es_ to counter grim televised health warnings. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) disagreed, but the industry has appealed to a federal court.

"We couldn't spend all thai money in print if we wanted to," John T. Landry, Philip Morris group vice president and director of tobacco product marketing, said in a Tobacco Reporter interview. "If tobacco companies put "occupant," and American Tobacco Co.'s plan to name its pipe tobaccos "Pall Mall," "Silva Thin" and "Tareyton," in packages similar to their cigaret namesakes. The law does not affect broadcast advertising of pipe tobacco and cigars. The Sporting Touch The sporting events, Moss said, could put cigaret promotion back on TV despite the law. Auto racing seems to be the leading entry. Liggett Myers Tobacco Co. backed one auto race last year. It plans to sponsor 14 in 19 71, and to enter its own car --the "LM Lola" --in races around the country. Deadline Set On Business Tax CHARLESTON -- State Tax Commissioner Charles H. Haden cautioned West Virginians engaged in a business activity that the deadline for registration without a penalty being imposed under the new Business Franchise Act is Jan. 1, 1971. This new act, passed in February 1970, with an effective date of July 1, 1970, requires "any business whether a person engaged expressly or impliedly holds himself out as engaged in business or supplying his products or a commodity or service to the public as a class or a limited portion of the public or sells any goods, wares, merchandise of any kind or provides a service of any kind" to register and in return receive a business franchise certificate. In other words, anyone engaged in a business activity in West Virginia has to register with the Tax Department under the new law.
