,P LUCK~: ~PZKE ComercinZ - BV)CK: "I~KE BELI~E EALL~OOM" I*m sure most of you folks know that old oxpression about that certain place t~t's ~upposed to be paved ~ith good intentions. When good old Christopher Columbu~ made up his mind thxt this earth of ours ~s round cud that by sailing in ~ certain dirertton he'd find a new route to Iodin, It was Just a good thing far ell of us ltatening right now he didn't say to hi=self - Ye~! I'm sure the earth is ro~d. Oh, I ~ow I cau find a new route to Indi~ but I don't think 1'11 bother abaut it right now. I'll just wait a couple of years. If Coin~bas had procr~stinated - it he put off troa day to day doing what he w~ted to do - well, maybe - maybe we wouldn't be here right now. ~be there woul~,t be ~ you ~d I 1tying in this great co~tr#. So I s~y - thank goodness th~ mhen Mr. Coluabus made up his mind to do a thing he did it, And you k~ow x,n bet that thought upplies to a lot of you folks who listen to the Ballroom every day. ~ou've heard how et auctions throughout the South, the • aters of Lucky Strike Cigarettes pay the price in order to acquire fine tobacco° And I'm sure that you agree with the sbateae~t that no eigaretto can be any better than the tobacoo it contains. There's little doubt but that you're l~pressed by the fact that tobacco experts - men who know tobacco best - men tho see the makers o~ Luckies paying the price to ge~ the finer tobacco - choose Luckins far their own personal smoking pleasure. And I'= Just dilll~g to bet that all of these things together have inpres~od you with the fact tha~ Lucky Strike is the cigarette you should smoke. And ev~r~ time you say - I think 1'11 buy a pack of Lucktas and try them - ~el!, the next tl~e you step up to a tobacco counter you just sort of procrastinate - you forget - you - you put off.

I r~mgmher~ the expression he used...You get ~ha% you pay for. And you ~o~j itI~ the same ~ay with tobacco° That's %h~ reason why The Am~rlcan Tobacco Company is prop~r~ t~ p~ the price for the finer, milder3 better tasting leaf that g~es into Luckles. That is the ~son ~by, f~ instance, in 1939 at th~ ~ucti~.~ in K~n~ston, South Carolina, The Amerlcan Tobacco Co~pauy pai~ thlrty-ei~h~ per ce~% more for the tobacco ~t bought f~r its clgar~ttes ~ other fin~ tobacc~ pr.~duats - thlrty-eight per cent obove ~r~ket price puhllsh~d by the United States Department of Agriculture. And these tobacc~, p~operly aged, mad!owed, and blended ~ith other fine tobaccos~ are im the Ducky Strikes you b~ today.

Now what accosts for this great dif£erence in price when ae~al~y bo~h cars will take you to the sago place and got you there and back?

Sure you remember - th~ cne where Gulllv~r visits the Lilli~utians, and the little - the ~Idgets who mak~ him feel so big And a~keard. And then all of a sudden he finds hlms~If.ln the land of the giants where ~verybndy just to~ers above him. h~, I used to love that story w.hen I ~as a kid. It was good exercise. I had to stretch ~j imagi- nation to keep up with Gulliver a~ he went from one extreme to another. ~, de y~ Inow why I mention that? It's b~cause I -:ant to show you that wh~ I speak to you of Luchy Strike Cigarettes, you do ~ot have to stretch your ir~.~inatinu. Claims we make for Luckies never go to e~r~$. Yo~ set frle~ds~ I mereS' appeal to your eo~ sense as ~n average smoker who wants the ~st smokkng enJoy~ merit out of a cigarstba. I merely tell you foik~ that no clgaratte can be amy better then the tobacco which it ccntains. And that's certainly ~retty strai@ht dowa-tc-earth thinkiag. And then I tell you how with my own eyes I hava been the statements of the indepen~ dent tobacco experts whelva been steeped in the tobacco industry for five, ten, twenty - sometimes thirty years - and sworn records show that among these men, Luckies have more thou twice as many exclusive s~ker3 as all ether brands of cigarettes combined. And why not? After all~ these men ~now tobacco. And they see th~ makers of Luck[ paylug the price at auctions all ev~r the South for that finer Luck}" Strike leaf. No ~;c~der then, these independent tobacco me, prefer Luckies two to one. ~ien4s~ that's ~stor~ about Luckies... no superlatives - no extremes - no wild flights ef the imagination - and. no impossible claims. Nhat I've told you i~ all fact. you ~uew that in a cigarette it,s the tobacco that counts. And I've sho~n yc~ that LUCM~ Strike means fine tobacco. Nor, the next time you to into a tobacco store, order a pack of Luckles. you won,t need any ikaglna- tlon at all to real~e that ~ucktes ~ean greater smoking satiofacticm . - that Luckies are ~ruly a long-tim~ friend. ~TH01 0016~0
