Here are the exact words of a noted authority retained by us to study this question. He writes — "First, the vocal chords, on account of their delicacy of stnic- ti!ve,«'OUidfjethe/irsUissiiesto give indication of irritation, evidenced by the huskincss of the smoker's voice, the result of relaxed tension and slower •vibration of the vocal chords. The site of irritation would be the tissues adjacent to the vocal chords compris* ing the larynx, there/ore the general focal point of the irritation would be in the voice box represented externally by the Adam's Apple."
