( While we have spent a good many million dollars advertising Camels, we've always held to the old fashioned idea that the thing that really counts is what- we put into our cigarette and not what we say about it. If we know anything about tobacco, and we think we do, Camels contain the choicest Turkish and the mellowest, ripest domestic leaves that money can buy. In fact we have every reason to be proud of the quality of Camels as they come from the factory, but the remark of an old friend of ours from Denver some time ago emphasized a point that has been the problem of the cigarette industry for years. As he inhaled the smoke from a Camel we gave him in our offices one morning, he sighed with very evident enjoyment and then asked jokingly, "What is this, a special blend reserved for Camel executives?" "Certainly not," we told him. "This package of Camels was bought at the corner store this morning." "Well," he said, "I've been a dyed in the wool Camel smoker for a good many years, but upon my soul I never got a cigarette as good as this in Denver, If you would give the rest of the world the kind of Camels you sell here in Winston- Salem, you ought to have all the cigarette business there is." J.HAT statement simply emphasized again the cigarette industry's most important problem. The more we thought about it, the surer we were that he was dead right, and that somehow t something must be done; Denver wasn't getting a fab? break. Neither in fact waa any other town. The only people who really knew bow good Camels could be,were the folks right here in Winston-Salem. That was due to a factor no cigarette manufacturer had ever been able to control. Naturally there ia uo difference whatever in the quality of the tobacco in Camels, whether you buy .them in Winston-Salem, Denver or Timbuctoo. But up to now there has been a very real difference in the condition of the cigarettes by the time they reached the smoker. . . . . The flavor and mildness of fine tobacco depend upon the retention of its natural, not added, moisture content which is .prime at about ten per cent. In spite of our great pains always to make sure Camels left the factory with just the right amount of natural moisture, no cigarette package had ever yet been designed that could prevent that precious moisture from drying out. T . •• -. .. IERE are three things about a cigarette that can sting the tongue and unkindly burn the throat. . (1) Chemp t+*mt*>+9. (*) Pmrttclem *f jMjpwr* tlmmt Mg Im tin, air-tight seal could give the desired prot (D) This measure, while cosily, could be i on to keep Camels in prime condition foti least'three months in any climate. If you have a technical bent, the graph I made by the Pittsburgh Testing Labonti will show you the exact results of their < haustive study. 25 im i MVKI 01 «:K,\KI i u MOISITKI n (3) A jMweJtaf <f r* eoiMlf tf •* o/ Itmce* dm* to IOM o/im Always certain of the quality of our tobaccos we had already made Camel a "dimfeas" cigarette by the use of a specially designed vacuum cleaning apparatus exclusive with our factory. Now, if we could perfect a package that would actually act as a humidor and retain the natural moisture content, then Yuma, Arizona, could enjoy Camel* as much as we do here at Winston-Salem. We knew what we wanted. We tried many things. We asked the Pittsburgh Testing Laboratory to help us. After many experiments and humidity tests covering all methods of packing cigarettes came the detailed report of which this is the net; (A) No existing cigarette pack* age, including those wrapped in glassine paper or ordinary cellophane,givef} anything like adequate protection against evaporation. (B) All cigarettes so packed tend to dry o^t rapidly from the day they arc released from the factory. (C) Only a waterproof material with 9 specially devised fltttburgh TMtin* Ubormtory ehmrt mbove grtf shmet you that only the M&IM! Humidor Fackt cigarette* to you in prime condition Y . '. .' -••.-' ; )U may be sure we gave this report « W careful study. We checked it and re-checbi and then we went ahead. We tried this if 4 and that. At last we met success. The air* wrapping involved the designing oft, processes, special machines. That costs a lot of money, more t^an W 000 the first year, but after you have. Camels packed this modem new way w« •ure you will agree it is a fine investment. For some time now every Camel that bu our factory has gone out in this new F—' Pack. • •••••- .VV- We have said nothing about it until make sure your dealer would be able to » you when the good news came out. Camel smokers of course have already covered that their favorite cigarette is L and milder now* than ever before. If you aren't a Camel smoker, try them to see what a difference there really U bet- harsh, dried out tobacco and a properly ditioned cigarette, You can feel the difference, you can tow* difference and you certainty can taste the ference, Of course we're prejudiced, We always have believed that Camel" world's beet cigarette. * " Now we know it.
