-4- ~: (CONTINUES) There have been numerous stories in the papers to the effect that the Prince of Wales had made a statement to the press -- that he would never vlslt the United States again -- because on his last visit he was treated with abuse. Of Course, none of us believed that the Prince had made such a crack. However, during an interview with the Honorable Winston Churchill the other day -- he said that he dldntt believe the Prince had said that -- and that he believed that His Royal Highness would make another visit to this America of ours in the very near future.. ~ .Probably to the Olympics in Callfornla..~I think I may safely appoint myself a committee of one to represent you all...in saying now that the Prince of Wales, of all the visitors from the old ootu~try, was among the ~ost popular. And here are some thii~s you probably never knew until now, either,..that old auto tires are sent to Spain, China and Africa, where they are made into shoes...Did you know, too, that the normal heart beats 70 times to the mlnute?....But that good dance music, such as the Lucky Strike Dance Hour provides (ahem~) makes the heart thump faster? This improves the circulation and makes you feel allve,.b.ln fewer ~Tords, good dance music is good for you -- take It from Dr. Winehell..,Many of my listeners have kidded me for overloeklng a snappy fllp crack over the mad chase ~es Garbs gave the press all week trying to snap her picture .... Master Isadore Elinson of the Bronx, hewever, topped all the other flnger-pointer8 with this Jab at me...He said: "Oh, Walter! Is your face pink? ....

7 -5- MR~ W~NGHELL~ (CONTINUES) These opera singers certainly do hop around the globe. Take Eye-ee-da Donlnelll, the lovely young soprano of the ~etropolitan Opera Company, Her family went from l~ilan to Central Americ~....Madame Donlnelll hopped back to Italy to study voice... then to 8outh America for a concert tour that took her all through those hot and bothered Central ~nerlcsn nations -- and finally landed in Chicago. That was more than three years ago. Eye-ee-da Donlnelli gave a concert in the Windy City and the news of her beautiful voice travelled to New york and the ~et. The Hetropolitan music moguls grabbed ~er, mud shels stayed here longer than she ever stayed any place before - three years, and the music ozltlcs are hoping she'll stay there three years more! They know a good thing when they hear it! HOWARD CLANKY: And the beet critic of Aida Donlnellils voice is Aida Doninelll herself. Lieten to thle statement: "When I sing at the Metropolitan, I am as critical of my own voice as the most critical of opera audiences. I find that LUOKIE8 do not irritate my throat. LUCKY STRIKE is just right for my voice.,, Madam Donlnelll has smoked LUCKY STRIKES for three years and there is a great moral in her statement. Be crltlual...be especially critical of your voice. For your voice Is so much a part of your personality. And I know" that if you are critical of your voice, you will be critical of your throat and therefore critical in your choice of cigarettes. (~R.

-5- LUCKY STRIKE has stood the test of the world's most precious voices because LUCKY STRIKE is the only cigarette that affords the throat protection of that famous and exclusive "TOASTING" Process which includes the use of modern Ultra Violet ~ays. ~fnen you reach for a LUCKY, you reach for the mild and mellow goodness of the Cream of many Orops~ And you are always sure that LUCNIES will be kind to your throat because the "TOASTING" Process expels certain harsh, biting irritants naturally present in every tobacco leaf. And that is your throat protection against irritation - against cough. Be crltioal and you'll reach for a LUCKY instead. WALTER WINCHELL: Well, just as I suspected - here comes my old pal, Hr.

Take this mike, please, while I relax with a cigarette. I donlt suppose I have to tell you what kind I smoke. I give you one guess. And if that isn't a darn good signed statement, then that chime guy is a musician! HOWARD OLANEY: You want the biggest value for every penny you spend. That is why we stress the extra goodness in LUCKY STRIKE...extra goodness that comes from extra fine tobaccos - The Cream of m~y Crops... extra goodness that results from that famous and exclusive "TOASTING" Process which includes the use of modern Ultra Violet Rays! Heat purifies ... sunshine mellows. The "TOASTING" Process brings out the full delicious flavor of the choice, mild and mellow LUCKY STRIKE tobaccos. That's an extra benefit. The ,TOASTING" Process drives out certain harsh, biting irritants naturally present in every tobacco leaf. ' ~ a b n fit.

WALTER WINOHELL: Okay| Johnson -- glad to have heard you, boyX Happy days to you and your gang and tell Denver to stand by for I'm going to ranind them of some of their once upon a time natives. One of them is Arthur Chapman, who glorified Denver and the West away back in 1912, I think it was. That was when Arthur Chapman was on the staff of the gone, but not forgotten Denver Republican. And Arthur distlnguished himself and hls paper by writing that lovely poem -- the one I quoted in my opening tonight -- 'rOut Where The West Begins"...what a lilt it has! What a swing there is to Itl And what sentiment! Those lines, frixample -- '~Out where the skies are a trifle bluer -- cut where friendship~s a little truer -- where therets more of singing and less of sighing -- where a man makes friends without half trying -- That's where the west begins! Denver sure has reason to be proud of Arthur Chapman. Then there's Fay King, bless her. Fay's cartoon editorials are famous the country over -- and Fay once worked in Denver. Fay, you know, was ~rs. Battling Nelson. Thi,s Is my favorite anecdote about her. • One day, her Denver editor sent Fay to review a vaudeville show, because the regular critic was ill. Fay Klng -- llke all new critics -- took the assieu~ment to heart and panned the devil out of one comedy act. She roasted that act for a full coltu~n, claiming It told Jokes that weren't fit for women and children to hear and suggested that the act be run out of to~* (~.

-IO- ITALTER WINCHELL; (OONTINUEB) The next morning, after the review was published, the actors ca~e up to the editorial rooms looking for the crltio. The editor consumed a whole hour paolfylng them. After they left, the llmp editor sent for Fay, and begged her in this pleading manner, "review 'em -- my dear, review tom. Donft try to REFORM I EMI!~I! Prohibitionists, perhaps, will find a thrill in this paragraph .... I try to pleaBe everybody, you see. Therefore this Is for them, but Its my idea of a sob story.

One proprietor told me today that he was most unhappy and was ready to surrender. He said: q~My rent is $125 -- two bartenders cost me $15 each a week...A cook gets $14.--the free lunch X offer amounts to $6 daily .... A lookout man gets ~I0 per week, the gas and electric light bills total $6. weekly, my laundry bill is about two dollars a week, smd then therels the touches I am getting from the mob who are broke .... Business has been so bad -- live been t~klug in le~m than $I0. a day -- so ne~t week I'm padlocking the Joint myself." Oh, dear. Lislenersurge me to remind them in time of the birthdays of movie stare,..IIll tr¥ to get as msmy as X can ....

I got this item two days ago so it may be stale by now so far as Lss Angeles is concerned, and by the way, henceforth I'm calling that famous city Loss An-jell-uss -- because after going to all the trouble of trying to please everybody and their versions of the so-called correct pronuneiation -- I hard an L.A. radio announcer call it ........ ....And did I burn up to think of all the time I wasted? At any rate, Waldo Logan and Prances Youbands of Los Angeluss were plotting to hitch-hlke with a parson within the past 48 hours..• and, by the way, L.A., will you check up on something for Walter? Ask Patrlola Garon, who stranded Bway for Hollywood three years ago, if it is true what Broadway is saylng...That recently she was • secretly scaled and a week later was soloing it out there? I saw Charles Ray yesterday .... He looks better than ever .... He's a quiet sort of ~nAy, and one of the reasons we like him around New York, is that Charlie Ray never bores hls listeners about the so-ca~led good old days when he was HeadMen in the love-interest dlvlsion--and the sour breaks that he has had of late ..... 8peaking of former flicker favorites--most of you girls who now have husbands and children probably will feel your hearts thump when I remind you of the handsome Carlyle Blaekwell...Well, Carlyle Blackwell, who was the Head Man among screen lovers--and who came long before the Valentino-Gilbert-Gable vogue, just returned to New york. Blackwell is more good-looklng since his ten years retirement from the galloping gelatine but herets some bad news, ladies. Carlyle is ~,larrled ......

HOWARD CLANEY: Say, Walter, while youlre tallng about the talkies, have you seen that new football movie - ,Maker of Men?" WALTER WINCHELL: Oh yes - Jack H~It and Dick Cromwell are in it - good show - and say, I heard a funny one on Dick Cromwell the other day - seems in that flicker, "M~ker of Men" he was a football hero - and that was the first time held ever played the game~ Those college players in the east had to give him a course in plgskln-chaslng. I hear by underground radio that Dick Cromwell and Sally Blanc, the eye-filler, are making eyes where all Hollywood can see. Glad Disk is getting a break after working hours - on the set they tell me hels taken more rough and tumble beatings than any ten juveniles. In that football flicker I think everybody but Jack Holt ground his nose in the turf where the camera could see. HOWARD C~ANE~: Theylre a couple of bang-up actors, aren,t they - Jack Holt and Dick Cromwell - and two good friends of LUCKY STRIKE. Jack Holt has been reaching for a LUCKY for the past five years. He writes: "Itls good business for me to protect my throat. So itms good business for me to prefer LUCEIKS. Itm certainly for the throat protection which Toasting gives me." (~.

Jack Holt's opinion of the outstanding merits of LUCKY 8TRIEX is confirmed by Dlck Cromwell - let me read you Dickls statement: "For two years I have enjoyed the "Toasted" flavor of LUCKIE8 - and the extra throat protection your "Toasting" process gives me. And now you have given us a hUmidor package that is really easy to open - that's another step forward for LUCKY STRIKE." Jack Holt~ and Dlck Cromwell are but two of dozens of dozens of famous screen stars - grand opera singers - business executlves - lawyers - football coaches - leaders in all walks of llfe who have told us that LUCKY STRIKE'S exclusive "TOASTING" Process gives them ' an extra bensflt ~hleh no other cigarette can offer - and that extra benefit is throat orotectlon against irrltatton ~ against cough: ..............................

I refer to the college tutor, who first landed on the front pages by saying that all who whistled wore morons. And the other day he grabbed some more free space by asserting that people who play bridge are a little sappy, too. But what I started out to say is that in Chas. D. Isaacson~ "Simple Story of l@/slc" published in 19S8 I foLnud this interesting story on page $5. I am now quoting the author: "Whistling, it is said, changed the whole development of the steel industry. Mr. Carnegie couldn't help but notice a certain young boy who was always whistling at his work. 8o he took him out of the rsmks and helped him elevate himself." That boy, ladies and gentlemen, who whistled at his work was Charles M. 8ohwabl Laugh that off Nr. College Professor!! And now I want to tease George Bernard Shaw, another publlctty-mad-lad, who would have us believe that he was serious when he called all Americans boobs. Well, whether George B. Shaw was olownlng or not -- I suggest that Georgte visit Devon, England -- near London. If he does -- he will find that Devon folk claim -- that crawling backward -- around a thorn bush three times in the early morning -- will positively cure boils!~ Ouch! ~y chapped lips!! (~.

The statistics reveal that the averELge popularity of screen actresses last only about five years...Pola Negri recovered after three transfusions -- one was German, one D~toh and the third Swedish .... Joseph Yon 8ternberg, the dlreotor, has shelved his upper llp splnaoh and has bought a new $17,000 oar -- what,s her name~ Von~ One of the better known screen stars who was recently married had her face lifted while in New York ...Mr. and Hrs. Walter Winohell have named their new poodle MEADOWS so th&t the neighbors wlll think they have & butler. Thelma Todd has put her trick new name "Alison Lloyd" back on the shelf again. A numerologlst told her that Todd would be a better name now that she's graduated from comedies into dramatic parts. I'm glad it's Thelma Todd again.

When you add up those extra benefits you,ll always come to the same conclusion -- you'll always reach for a U~KY instead. Are you ready -- Okeh--letls add~ ONE: That delicious flavor of the finast of mild, mellow tobaccos...the Cream of many Crops• T_~: The throat protection of the excluelve "TOASTING" Process which e_ e~is oertaln harsh irritants naturally presen~ in every tobacco leaf. T~; The beneficial effects of modern Ult~a Violet Raye,..and every one know ~ow sunshine mellows -- how heat purifies. It is this 0NE-plus-TW0-plus-THREE that gives you the finest cigarette you ever smoked -- LUCKY 8TRIKE. Thelma Todd found that out back in 1938. Today, after four years on the LUCKY list, she writes: "It's great to reach for a LUOEY between scenes 'on the lot' -- to taste that delicious ,toasted, flavor -- and to know that, thanks to your 'toastlng~ process, I don't have to worry about throat irritation. Itve tried all brands but therers only one that satisfies me -- LUCKIES." Thank you, ~iss Todd!

I refer to Clyde Beatty whose divorce ~as made legal on November 2nd in the good old town of Peru, Indiana2 ! And while I've got your ear, peru, Indiana, may I add that Cole Porter who came from your city is in my opinion one of the three best songwriters on Broadway? Cole Porter's song words and his melodies have made many a musical comedy a smashing success. Hie beet song. I think, is ,,What Is This Thing Called Love." He is most popular in New york, Mr. and Mrs. peru -- and is also one o£ the very fe~ Bro&dway boys who has more fzlend~ then enemies. Herefs an observation that may interest sympathizers with the fast growing Nude Cults. The New York Nudist Cult, whose ~ymn&stlcs were recently interrupted by cur bluecoats -- told the ~udge ~nd the probe that they went a~ound that way because 'l~nBhlne ~nd Fresh Air are Vital To One's Health.~ Well, we know that -- but their headquarters ~re dark, badly ventil~ted, and all the windows are shut to keep the cops and the ourlous from peeking in at 'em.

He said he was a reporter and wanted to be known as such.,.you ought to see him at ~7ork in his motor car...This car is outfitted ~71th a typewriter, a desk, a steel flle and nearly all the essentials of an editorial room...Hs wastes no time.

Chase Baromeo, the brilliant basso of your own Chicago Civic Opera Oompany, is really a young business man turned Grand Opera Star. He is not Itallsn -- his real n~me is Ohase Baromeo 81keg -- S-i-k-e-s -- and his father le Vioe-presldent of one of America's bigger railroads. He starte~ warbling at the University of Michigan Glee Club. His middle name - Sa~omeo - was the n~me of a famous Italian Ca~dlnal. And say, W~ns, if you:re around Lincoln Park out there in Ohioago one of thee9 cold winter days, you may see a husky young fellow sprinting a~ound the Park in a track Buit...thatt~ Oha~s Baromeo. That's the way he keeps in trim - and they tell me he keeps fit all year round. A grea~ awakening is taking place throughout the country - an awakening as to the necessity in these $1ms8 for service - an awakening as to the wisdom of service offered in the little things. Witness the interest ~hlch people are taking in the choice of cigarettes. Witness the g~eat a~preclatlon of those extra virtues offered by LUCKY STRIKE. How ~ell this is expressed in Mr. Chase Saromeo's own statement: "A hoarse voice has no place in an opera $ingerfs llfe - that's the reason I became a LUCKY smoker.

He says also, that the prize ring certainly favored those fellas who had double vowels or double consonants in their handles. He offers John L. SuLLivan James J. OorbeTT -- Bob Fitzi~G~ons -- TuNNey -- Dempsey, whose real name is WiLLiam HaRRison Dempsey, there are two L1s and two R's in his full name. WiLLard got to the top, too, and so did the chaps named VaBLEE, MuSSolini, RugS, Jackie COOper, Jackie COOgan, eteentra, But he doesnlt explain a chap,s sucgess who got famous without having the double vowel or consonant. 80 our game is all shot. I am thinking of Clark Gable -- and then therels another bird who made good without double vowels. His names happens to be Charles Augustus Lindbergh. ~THO'I 003092/

OLANE : (CONTI UES) ~illlons upon milllons of people make that final test every day ... and scores and scores of famous men and women whose precious voices have been universally acclaimed -- attest unanimously to LUCKY BTRIKEIB quality. Edward Everett Horton, about whom Mr. Winchell Just told you, is one of those famous people. Here is his statement about LUCKY STRIKE: "Nothing is left to chance in making sound plcturee nowadays - and when I smoke a cigarette, I follow the same rule. I never take a chance with harsh irritants. I reach for a LUCKY. We always use LUOKIE8 in my stags production. They a~e easy on the throat." Edward Everett Horton knowshow good LUOKIES are...he,s ~oked them for years and years. And as I said before, the final test of a cigarette is in the smoking. Make this test yourself - and you'll always reach for a LUCET instead - because LUCEIES are alwayeklnd to your throat - and always delicious to your taste..

Alber heard me when I ssid on Tuesday night that a Wyoming paper "objected vigorously, in an editorial, to the way I was desecrating the beautiful word "0-Kay," and how a New York Colt~nbia University professor complained that "o-kay" wasn't a nice word, and it shouldntt be mentioned when microphones were near .... A Wyoming man calls it a beautiful word and a New York college professor says just the opposite...Now, do you know why I am gray so young?...All of which reminds me of my boss, ~r. Lucky Strike's great saying, that, after all its the difference of oplnlon that makes a horse~ race .... At any rate, the N.Y. Sunts ~r. Alber points out that such expressions as "salt of the earth" "eat, drink and be merry"--"I escaped by the skin of my teeth" -- "apple of my eye" -- "l~an after my own heart" and "Can a leopard change his spots" are all to be found in the most popular, most respected book in the world -- the Bible: And that reminds me that an Elmira, N.Y. college paper took up the Walter Winehell sltch-ee-ay-shun the "other day...And the edltor, a ~ad¥ r~arked that slang phrases have short lives and that the word "whoopee" would never be included In the dictionary... Well, I hate very much to differ with the lady from Elmira, and I wouldn't want to make her blush -- but the word whoopee, for the first time, now is Inoluded in the Standard Dictionary on page 2710, second col~mn about half way down the page...

Just a pull of the tab and there are the LUCKIES.n Thanks, ~aureen. You bet that new cellophane wrapper is marVelous - for it preserves something you111 find in no other package of cigarettes - that delicious "TOASTED" flavor, and the rich fragrance of the world's finest tobaccos - the Cream of many Crops. Thatls whatls INgIDE the paokagej my friends - but hereZs whatts OUT - certain harsh irritants are out - irritants youtll find in every tobacco leaf the soil ever grew - but theylre OUT of your Luckies because that secret and exclusive Toasting process drives them out.

That delicious LUCKY STRIKE you are puffing on now, is made of the choice, rips, tender leaves - the Cream of many Crops ~ that have been stored and aged during 1929 - 1930 - 1931o And then, for your throat protection, against irritation - agairst cough - these choice tobaccos receive the benefits of the famous and exclusive "TOASTING" Process.

Oh, dear. One of the New York critics made a silly observation the other day .... The commentator reminded his readers that another reason why the late David Belasco~s stars proved such great box offloe attractions -- is that Belasco never permitted them to appear at beneflt shows or make frequent ~opea~anoes in public. ~Thls is a sound idea," said the critic, ~'conslderlng that New york puts on so many benefits.

WINCHELL: I had a long chat with Pole , who is not as flt as she hoped she'd be to resume her theatrloal dates in Chicago where she is bound for now...Pola Negrl told ms a most touching story about herself and urged me not to print it or tell it to you..But I finally convlneed Pole that the story be told to all of you ... beltovlng that when you heard it,.mors people than ever would better understand a few things.. Pola began by saying that I misunderstood Greta Garbo~s high-hattltude toward the press in New York on her recent visit.. "When you meet Miss Garbo, some day" ~ said Pol~, 11you will adore her, She is lovely,.she isnlt indifferent to the reporters because she seeks more publicity by her actlons...Greta Garbo has a reason for dodging you boysj She once told me," continued Pole Negri, "why she is llke that". Garbs once told Miss Negri~ "Pole, I have watched you and learned from your mlstakes what not to do. Those of us who build up illuslons must not destroy them,.for the public is fickle and tlre8 easily. You were on top of the world..and when you lost the one you iovsd..and you went from Hollywood to New York to bring him back for burlal.,Ame~ioa laughed at you..and charged you with putting on an actl..They were ready to believe rumors...to the effect that it was a publicity trick on your part, Pole. I knew better..I knew he was your love, but the press, which is always suspicious, dtdnlt. And so they belittled you..and your troubles began. Be you see, Pole, said Greta, I am afrald..I am afraid to be seen or do anythlng for fear of what they may do to me. \. El T :.~01 0031105

Pola Negrits tear ducts opened when she referred to Valen~ino~ so I changed t~e suh~sct,..And we 6at there with Jimmy Walker and watched the stage and screen favorites cut-up,...Willlam Gaxton, a San Francisco boy who clicked in the biK-time manne~ he~e, ~as ~a~te~ o~ the proceedings... Gaxton was oelebratlng hie birthday ~ too...and he told th~ crowd he was 2~,..~Wnieh drew a loud laugh beeauss Gaxton had transposed the numerals, So Mayor Walker, who always manages to think of an appropriate oraok6.said in the sentimental manner~ "Gaxto~ you say youlre 24. Well , perhaps,,but the counting of time isn't half SO important as making time count|. It was a beautiful remark.,Later, Ji~y swapped fllpp~oles with Elsie Janie, who star~ed the fli-cracking act..

-6- WINCF~ELL~ (CONT) The affair was interesting from start to end because of the oelebrltles present and because there was such a variety of entertair~nent..Even George White, who never danced off a stage bsfore~ got up and did a soft-shoe routine to Swanoe River, Lou Holtz made them howl, Sam H. Harris, George ~. Oohanls long time pal, and partner, obliged with a dance that Cohan taught him 25 years ago, and when it was least expected , Earl Carroll furnished the melodramatic moment ....Carroll, who has taken some pretty stiff abuse from the critics here for ten years, but particularly from Guess -whose- Bad Boy .... startled us all b~ looking straight at me and giving me a piece of hle alleged mlndZ .... He said: "Walter, I've always wanted to tell this straight to your face. I wonder if you can Take It...for you ve made most of the people sitting here take it in your column". Then he let Ioose..and I kept my word and took It, having nodded that I would, and because I have been insulted by better producers than Earl Carroll. Poor Earl then raced from the place, and out in the lobby broke down and oried...Later I explained to~ayor Walker and Pol~ and others, when they asked me why I thought Carroll exploded that w%M...I told'them that Earl certainly had good reasons for letting me have a tongue lashing. In ten years I could never get my typ~Iter to s~7 a kind word about any of his productlone..and because I had told many a pointed Joke about him in the paper..the last Joke, I presume, getting his go~t the most..When somebody asked Groucho ~arx wh~t Groucho thought of one of Er. Carroll's shows, I had reported that Groucho replied, "Well, I hate to say, because I saw it under bad condltlons°..the curtain was upi" (l~R. WINCHELL CGNTI}~ES ~:EXT PAGE) ~T:~OI 0031~07

In sheer panic I reached into my pockets and fo~u~d a brand new pack. The cursed things =ere all bound up in Cellophane. I slashed at the covering with five or six thumbs. The future of the American drama hung in the balancet and I was balked by cellophane. After blood and tears and curses I managed to crack the shell and get a cigarette, all bruised ~d broken from the r, laullng. It didnlt dra~ ~ell, and neither did the sketch." That, Heywood, is a fine ad for iJr, Lucky Strike, whore been plugging the vlrtues of that little gadget on his package which zz~kss it so easy to open. H~: SaT, Heywood Brotm, X am asking Waiter to send you a carton of Luokles, ~d I ~lll pay for them.

"IId llke you to write a play for me," said ~r. Dillinghamj "I like your style." "I would h%ve to h~e $I,000 in advance,, said Wa!l~ce. 80 Dillin~ham handed him a check for that sum ... And Wallace got very busy. He was the most prolific writer the literary business had known in ages, you know. However, Dilllngham told him to take hle time ... Two years later, Wallace arrived in Few York .. He ,~ent right to the produoerls office and handed him a play . .. It was called "On the gpot" ... but Dillingham was afraid it wouldn't click, 8o he told Wallace to sell it else~yhere, and to forget the $i,000 ... Wallace sold it to the 8huberts. It wasnlt a big hit, but it had a moderate success. "Here's your $I,000," said Wallace one day ... "No," said Dillingham, "it was worth that, and ztore, to have met you~ sip." Wsllaoe, we all learned l~ter, took his profits of th&t sho~." ~/~d sent half to ~ London oharity~ &nd the oth3r h~if to one in New York ...

The finest tobaccos money can buy? Yes| Three years of aging and mellowing? Yes! And in addition, remember this: When Toasting removes certain harsh irritants, it makes room fo~ extra tobacco goodness! Thatls extra quality for you!

But after all, it is not surprising when you consider that out of the other many brands, LUCKY 8TRIEE alone, in all thls wide world, offers you the throat protection of that secret and exclusive LUCKY STRIKE Toastil~ Process which expels certain harsh irritants naturally present in every tobanoo leaf.

In fact, that's how he got his start - as an actor in a little troupe that did one-nlght stands through Poland. Perhaps you heard his grand voice over these air-waves just slx hours ago in the opera .%~one, broadcast from the stage of the Hetropolitan. His acting, of course, di~ult cut mush ice lwlth you radio listeners, but just wait until television comes around the corner| HOWARD CLANEY: If television were here, I would llke to show you the actual statement i~arek Win~eim of the Hetropolltan Opera has been kind enough to give us. You will be interested to kno~ that ~Lr. Wind~elm has been smoking LUCKIES for flve years, ~:d so he knows whereof he speaks. Listen -- "I thln~ of my voice as a delicate instr~:~ent requiring the beet of care always. How good it is to know that T.UCEY 8TRIEE will always give my throat the best of protection." Yo~ too, get that throat protection in LUGEY STRIKE, my friends, because you ~ certain impurities which are naturally present in every tobacco leaf. And the reason you don't get these lmpur~tSee is that theytre out -- the secret and exclusive ~.UOEY STRIKE "Toasting" Process expels them - drives them out. What you do ~e~ is mild, mellow-mild tobaccos - the CrsayJ of many Crops throughout the ;~orld....Tobacco that has been aged and mellowed as long as three whole years... When you reach for a LUCKY, you reach for the finest, purest, mello~-mildest elgarette that money can buy.

They nabbed a murderer the other day, who was to wanted for killing a crippled girl six years ago ...

WIN0~[ELL: (0 0NTINUES) A report just given to the New York leglslc~ture says that therels just as much crime in the country districts as in the big cities. BUT -- Itfs the big city that gets the reputation -- and the big city lawyer who makes the name for crime-fighting. There,s a show on Broadway now -- "Counsellor At Law" -- that pictures the whole thing -- and what a swell piece of acting Paul Huni does as the big city lawyer! And now, Hr. ~ud Hrs. Grand people -- whether you live in the city or the country: get this news about LUCEY STR~EE -- the finest cigarette ycu ever smoked| HOWARD CLANEY: It takes an investment of more th~ one hundred million dollars in the ~orldls choicest mellow-mild tobacco leaves -- the 0re~ of many Crops -- to make LUCKY STRIKE the finest cigarette you ever smoked: But even after this vast supply is gathered, it takes three years of aging -- of mellowing -- so that iIother ~'ature and Father Time can bring out the best that's in th&t fine tobacco. But even then those tobaccos must be given the benefit of the modern scientific "TOA8TING'r Process -- the process ~hat t~es out certain impurities naturally present in every tobacco leaf. With the benefit of purifying heat ... ~d the benefit of mellowing modern Ultra Violet Rays, the "TOASTII~G" Process makes LUCIC/ STRIKE the pure~ the /mellowest, the most deli~ious of cigarettes. No wonder LUCKIE8 are so good - sc kind to your throat! No wonder a great stage star like Paul ~ui -- whom Walter Winchell just mentioned -- has been a LUCKY smoker for 9 years! "An actor must always protect his voice and throat,,' he writes. "And especially in roles as long and strenuous as those I play, he must consider carefully which cigarette he c~ ~moke. That is why my choice is LUCMY STRIKE." Ladies and gentlemen -- if you want the purest, mellow-mildest, finest cigarette in all the world -- you too will reach for a LUCKY instead! £1IMO 1 0031L'~20

Born in a log cabin in Allen County, Ohio, Senator Fees had to struggle for an education. He overcame many difficulties. He has al~ays been keenly interested in politlcs~ and as a schoolboy took for hle declamation the famous speeches of Webster, Henry Slay, and to this day he can give from memory the nominating speeches of great men in national conventions which have gone down in hi story as great pieces of oratory. ~e have great pride and extreme pleasure in introducing to you Senator Simeon D.

-- 5 - MR. ~INCHEL~L: (CONTINUING) The other morning in the column, I ran what I considered the most beautiful of the sentimental compositions I had ever read .., It is known as the Last Will and Testament of a lawyer known as Charles Lounsbury, in whose pockets they reported it was found, after he died in lllinoy several years ago ... I was told, too, that that will was oonsidered~egally perfect by expert attorneys, who finally had the Chicago Bar Association pass a resolution to place it in the records of the probate Court in Cook County ... After I published it - nuz~rous letters came from readers who were pleased .,. Then I got a letter from Irvln~ Berlin this morning ... In which Mr. Berlin also enclosed a song of his called "When I Leave the World Behind", which was inspired, he said, b~ that Will ... However, Berlin tells me that the Will was not written by Charles LounsburF~ but by a man n~med Williston Fish, who wrote it for a pamphlet for a bar&king house ... But what confuses me is this: Berlin ss~vs Williston Fish wrote it - yet this song is dedicated to a Charles" Lounsbury - and I wish the members of the Chicago Hat Associatidn ~yould enter into the controversy and settle it once and for all, so that the records may be kept accurate.

Itts because LUCKY STRIKE gives you real tobacco flavor, undiluted by impurities. LUCKY STRIKE starts with the world, s finest, mellow-mildest, most expensive, tobaccos - the Cream of many Crops. But - there's only one way to make a cigarette really delicious ... and that is to take out certain harsh, irritating impurities natually present in every tobacco leaf. And LUCKY STRIKE does take out these impurities, for LUOKY STRIKE is the only cigarette that employs that "TOASTING" Proces~ to expel them. Thatls why LUOKY STRIKE is so much better - better in tea/, tobacco flavor - better because itls always kind to your throat ... better because every LUCKY is chock full of the mellow goodness of modern Ultra Violet Rays ... better because it gives you more tobacco quality for your money| The finest, purest, mellow-mildest cigarette you ever smokedt ~ALTER UINCKELL: Thank 7ou, C[aney ...

What did not surprise me was observing that Arthur Brisbane, one of the better journalists, agreed that the dramatic critics wove smart aloes, whose wisecracks, wrote Mr. Brisbane, are not helping the stage. Well, I sa~ 1 was notsurprised about Hr. Brisbane'a views for he has always been opposed to critics ... 80 much so - that for a long time, he refused to have any dramatlo critic o~ the New york Journal, one of the papers he edits for Mr, Hearst... and he had ~ reporter write only notices of prlase, no matter how dull the pls.v was ;;. And that didnlt help bring customers to the box office ~.. 8o Kr; B~isbane a~aln hired a regular critic, who makes wisecracks and funny ones, too ... And his theatrlcal pa~es~ as a result, a~e more ~e&dable than eve~ ,.. Trust Arthur Brisbane more than anF athez one man in America, to know when to change his mind. (MR.

"She threw her good knee out of joint last night by over-actlng|,, However, there have been just as many nasty digs at dramatic critics ...

~,, ~ ...... ~,. ,4., ~,.~ ~."~ ,~ ~ • Whatts more embarrassing than a loud, booming cough in the midst of a thrilling scene on the stage or at the opera? Embarrassin[ to the ooughe~, annoying to the audience and of course to the artists. And how unnecessary -- every great singer knows how easy it is to guard agsdnst throat Irritatlon...for instance, three out of four of the singers we interviewed at the Metropolitan Opera depend on Lucky Strike for throat protection. May I read you what one of these artists has written to us:. Gustav 8ohutzendorf, who sang last night in the opera, .Lohengwin.!' 'rAn opera singerTs voice is a hard taskmaster." Mr. 8ohutzendorf writes. "It demands constant attention. I never irritate my throat. Lucky Strike and my voice are old friends.!' Millions, like Mr. $chutzendorf, started to smoke Luckles purely out of a desire for throat protection..,and discovered that in addition Lucky Strike gas the worldts most delicious cigarette. It is only natural that these two virtues should go together. The only ~ay to make a cigarette delicious is by starting with the finest tobaccos, and then driving out certain cough producing irritants which nature grows into every tobacco leaf. Thatls exactly what Lucky Strikers exclusive "Toasting" Process does. of It not only m~es Lucky Strike the purest, mellow-mildest/cigarettes -- i~ mamas zoom~ fez extra delicious flavor...!t gives the choicest tobaccos the flavorful goodness of mellow Ultra Violet Rays. That's why Lucky Strike is always delicious to your taste...and always kind to your throat.

HOWA~ C~A~r~: In every package of Luckles, there is extra value. Itws ~n extra helping of quality, made possible by "TOASTING."
