LUCKY STRIKE "YOUR HIT PARADE" - 16 - 7/~/~2 Commercial #2 - July 4, 1942 BLOCK: Right, Barry, ....and you know, friends, it seems like a long time ago when all the automobile manufacturers used to place their new models on display. They:re not bulldlng new models today. No sir, they,re busy turnlng out guns~-tanks,~planes, and ammunition. But I mentloned]]the automobile shows that we used to lave, becauseal know of a lady whose husband suggested that she choose their new car. So off went the afore-mentioned lady to the auto show, carefully looked over all the new cars, and finally placed her order. When her husband asked her why she had bought that car, she answered that it Just matched the color of her new fall outfit. Can you Ir~aglne anyone buying an automobile because the color just matched her new fall outfit? Seems kind of silly, doesn't ,J it? Of course, you W4~want to know what was under the hood. You'd want to know that that car was solid and substantialj that it was going to transport your family safely and economically. (~o~) ep ~r ~o 1 oo71941

And I'm Just afraid that too many of us today select cup cigarettes the way that lady selected that automobile. Therels only one thing that determines the quality o£ a cigarette - whether in the long run it's goin~ to glve you smoking satisfaction ... and that's the tobacco from which it's made. And w~e shovm you how the makers of Lucky Strike Cigarettes pay the price in order to acquire the finer tobaccos. We have told you how independent tobacco experts -- men who know tobacco best -- choose Luckies for their ovm personal smoking pleasure.J/~/Why don't you this very night try the brand that brands you a connoisseur of fine tobacco?

YOUE HIT PARADE Co~eroial #i (oont'd): BLOCK: - 7 - 7/11/42 Now, there, f~iendst you heard a typical auction of the 19S9 crop at Conway~ South Carolina, where for the tobacco it bought the makers of Lucky Strike cigarettes paid $5 percent above the average market prl~eas published by the United States DeparSment of Agriculture, but that is only one market. There are hundreds and hundreds of auction sales everywhere all over the South, and believe men such a scene takes place at ell of these auctions. There's no secret about why the American Tobacco Company pays the price to get the finer tobacco. It's Just as I told you a few moments ago; itls because we ~now that only through the use of fin~ tobacco can we make a fine cigarette, And believe m% that finer tobacco is in the Luckies you smoke today. Now at that auction as well as at other auction~p independent tobacco experts see the prices paid by the various tobacco buye~m. Itls little wonder then~ that with these men who know tobacco best, it's Luckies two to one. WouldnWt you like to enjoy that finer tobacco, yourself? Sure you would.

I have seen the figures proving that we pay the price to buy the finer tobacco. I have seenj with my own eyes, the statements of independent tobacco experts~ that with these men who know tobacco best It's Luckies 2 to i. Remember, that everything I say about the quality of Luokies, about the f~ner tobacco that goes in them~ about the preference of the independent experts, is based on my own personal knowledge of the facts. TO my way of thinking, the superiority of Lucky Strike can all be boiled doWn to Just two words -"Fine tobacco.' I am on your side of the tobacco cc~ter. I feel that I am Just an average cigarette smoker. Tonight, I only ask for the opportunity of proving to you the things that I have learned. I know that if I can do that I will be partially responsible for opening up to you a great, new vista of smoking enjoyment, Won't you try a pack of Luckles tonight? le RT~01 0071984.

Tonight, I am going to take the liberty of saying, "the better the tobacco the better the cigarette," because it i8 an accepted fact that in order to make a fine cigarette, you must use fine tobacco; and here's Basil Ruysdael to show you how the nakers of Luckies pay the price for that Pine tobacco that you want to smoke.

C OI~IERCI AL #I B]500K : Nowj friends, for the tobacco it bought at auetione of the 19&9 crop at Pampllco, South Oarollna, the makers of Luckies paid 34 per cent above the average market price as published by the United States Dop~rtmenb of Agriculture. ~nd, while that clearly shows that Lu~y Strike means fine tobacco because wB pay the prio~ to buy It, to my way of th~nking, another really impoTt~nt thing to you in that auction scene, iB aomothlng that ~a~ not appear on the ~urfnc~.~ that ~uetlon as ~el~ aB m oth~r a~ction~ t.~z~ou~out th~ South ~a~ attended by independent t0b~cco experts, ~rehous~n~n, a~ctiono~r~, b~y6T~ -- ~on wh~ ~k~ it their business to know tobacco -- and ~ou can't pull the wool over thei~ ~yes. ~hen the~ so6 the ~aker~ of Luokles co~i~i6ntly pa~'~e price to buy the finer tobanco, it/~ little wond6r~that with these ~en who know tobacco best. Luckies have twice as many exclusive smokers as have all other cigarettes combinod.~o my way of th~nking, that's the important thing be you as an average smoker, the fact that these tobacco exports prefer Luckies two to o~e.

CO~,, #i BLOCK: LUCKY STRIhE - P; DE - ? - 8/i/ Now, friends, if you paid particular attention, you noticed that when the warehouseman said, "Fine tobacco, boys," the bidding was fast and furious. not only ~ at the auction of the 1939 crop at Clarkton, North Carolina, where for the tobacco it bought the American Tobacco Company paid 32 per cent above the average market price as publlshedby the United A~ States Department of Agriculture, but that wastage way it went at auctions all over the South. Yes sir, the makers of Luekles really make sure that they get that finer tobacco for your Lucky Strike cigarettes. And as usual at auctions there are in attendance independent tobacco experts, buyers, warehouseman and auctioneers. These men move from market to market. And year after year they see the makers of Lucky Strike cigarettes pay the price to acquire this finer tobacco so there is little wonder that these independent tobacco experts signify by their own statements that they prefer Luckes two to one. In fact, with these men, Luckies have more than twice as many exclusive smokers as all other cigarettes combined. Now friends, I think that right here we have conclusive evidence to prove to you that ~ Lucky Strike means "fine tobacco." And since fine tobacco means a better smoke, don't you think yould better try Luckies? Ta F T 01 OOP20 B

Lucky Strike "your HIT P~ADE" COM~RCI AL #i BLOCK : 8/15/~2 Friends, the other night I had a most enlightening talk with one of New York's leading hosts; Sherman Billingsley is his name, and he operates the very famous Stork Club on S3d Street. We were discuss- ing the successes and failt~ces of different famous restaurants in New York City. Vrqen I asked Sherman what it was, in his opinion, that accounted for the phenomenal success of M1e Stork Club, ha said, "~ell, Martin, Itll tell you. Our reputation is based on Just one thing...fine food.'t Pretty logical, because, after all, you So to eat, and if the food is fine, you can't help but enjoy. And being Lucky Strike conscious as I azl~ it i~.ediate- ly occurred to me that that vsas also the explana- tion for the success of Lucky Strike cigarettes. When you buy a pack of cigarettes, you b~ them because you want to smoke tham. And the pleasure you rscelve from smoking is greatly dependent on the quality of the tobseco. I don't know how ~h'. Billingsly goes about selecting his fine foods, but I do know how the makers of Luckics go about acquiring that finer tobacco, and here's Basil Buysdael to show us. AT)~O 1 002'2063

One night, in a hurry to get do~Eo the south side of Chicago, I got into my car, drove to the corder. The wheels of the car, however, slipped on to the trolley track, and try as I might, I couldn't turn them, either right or left, and so fo~ miles I hod to follow those trolley tracks to the end cf the line, drive into the car barn, and then turn around, and retrace my steps to where I ~vanted to go. Ladies and gentlemen, I an was ~ in the Groove. it ws~/exasperating oxperlence. And I w cn~r whether some of you folks haven't slippo~, into the Croov~ that loads you to the tobacco counter, where because of habit you comtinue to ask for one brand of cigarette.

YOUR HIT PARADE Commercial #2 BLOCK: - 16 - 8/~/4~ You know, friends, a couple of days ago I had a most pleasant surprise. A friend of mine who is now a lieutenant in the Air Corps was in town and dropped in to say "hello," and we got to talking about planes and such. HO told me that aside from the human element, the most important thing in any airplane Is the motor. The wingspread is important, yes, the instruments, the armor, the armament ... all of these things are important, but the main thing in the performance of a plane is the excellence of its motor. On that motor rests the rate of climb, the speed, all the operating power. (MORE) 8TK01 00?2095

YOUR P~T pARADE - 17 - 81221 BLOCK : And then I began to think about that and happened to glance at the cigarette I was holding in my hand. How llke that cigarette, where it's the tobacco that counts. Yes, in a cigarette, the tobacco is the important thing. Independent tobacco experts know that no cigarette can be any better than the tobacco it contains. That's why among these men, Luekies have more than twice as many exclusive ~mokers as all other brands of cigarettes combined. These men follow the auctions. They see the makers of Luckies pay the pri~ time and time again ~o obtain the finer, lighter, milder leaf which the~ pref~ to smoke o.. which we all prefer to smoke. Now thee are the facts behind the s~orn records Z have read with my own eyes, which show that these independent tobacco men choose Luckios two to ooe~ Yes, sir, in a cigarette it's the tobacco that counts ... and you can rest assured in Lucky Strike, it's fine tobaccoL The best way to insur~ the perfect performance of those bombers and fighters that we're making these days, is to produce excellent motors. And the best way to be sure of a cigarette that brings you increased smoking pleasure, is to h~y a pack of LuoRies ... the elga~ott~ that mea~s fine tobacco, AI"MO 1 00220cj6

Friends, s ~ ago I looked out across the footlishts at over a thousand people who are here in thls studio tonlght to see and hear Your Hit Parade in person, Just as you are hearing it on the air. And I wondered Just what it was that brought people out of their homes to see a radio broadcast. And Ifve come to the conclusion that the answer is a pretty logical one. We all like to see what's goin8 on behind the smenest particularly if it applies to things with which we come into constant contact. There's a real thrill in watching a broadcast, or a Broadway stage show from the wings ... mainly because it gives you a better idea of Just what it is that makes the wheels go Iround. And since you come in contact so zany times, day and night, with Lucky Strike Cigarettes, I think it should be Just as interesting $o you to ~mow how we go about acquiring that fine tobacco that has made Lucky Strike such an outstanding cigarette. You !auow that fine tobacco is in Luekles, when you light ore. And you've heard me tell you that independent tobacco experts who attend public auctions throughout the South and see who buys what tobacco, prefer Luekles two to one. All these things affect your smoking pleasure ... and se I~m now going to ask Basil Ruysdael to take ue back of the soe~es, a~d show you how a tobacco aueti~ i8 carried On, wl AT~O~ 00721?2 [

Monday mornlng~ passing one of the public ~chools, I stopped for a moment to look at the eager, shinir~ faces of hundreds of children~ returning to school for the opening day. After a whole sum~er of play and vacation, they were all mlgh~ glad to get back to tbelr frle~dsj to learn what ~e~ things were in store for them. And you know, friends, we could learn something from ~hose children, Their eagerness Cot • %m new ex~erlences and their willingness to learn may bring to them the better things in llfe. And your knowledge of the fact that Lucky Strike means fine tobacco will bring to you increased smoking enjoyment. M~ authority for that statement is the hundreds and hundreds of independent tobacco exports, auctioneers, buF~rs, warehousemen, who attend publlo auctlona and see us pay the p~lee for the fine tobacco that goes into ~our Lucky ~trlke~. These men express their preference for Luckles by an overwhelming majority.

YOUR ~T PARADE REVIS~ COmmeRCIAL #2 - 15 - BLOCK| Friends, have you ever stopped to think of the importance of words@ W~ use them for almost our entire lifetime to get the things that we want~ to conduct our business. In fact our civilization would rapidly decline without words. I suppose that since it's my business as Just an average smoker to talk to you folks on this broadcast the value of words is doubly important to me. Which is why I will never forget that so-true saying by Mark ?¢~ain that the difference betwsen the right word and th~ wrong word is the difference between lightning and the lightning-bug. And if I may be permitted to parapbmase that statement, the difference between a flne cigarette and Just an ordinar,I elgarette is the difference between fine tobacco and tobacco, and itIs that thought that keeps our buyers constantly on their toes to acquire the right tobacco, the kind of tobacco that we think makes Luckies a really fine cigarette.

Call it powe~ of • suggestion or anything you like ... whenever I see anyone else lighting a cigarette, automatically, I want to light one.

A mirror is a wonderful little device that gives you an honest reflection of anything held in front of it. A mirror ~ lie~, It tells you when your make-up looks good and when your clothes fit you properly. It tells you the ttnbiased truth. Now, when the meters of Luekies checked into the smoking habits of the independent tobacco experts, they were looking for an honest, unbiased reflection of the preferences of the men who l~1ow tobacco best. And because we were looking for an unbiased reflection, one as honest as your mirror sends back to you, only the preferences of the independent tobacco e~erts, those affiliated with no cigarette compauy, were tabulated.

It was true twenty-flve years ago; it was true fifteen years ago,..and itts still true today, The best way to make a fine cigarette is to make it from fine tobacco. That tobacco is bought at public auction, and how the makers of Luckies obtain that finer tobacco for Lucky Strike cigarettes is clearly shown by Bssil Ruysdael in the reenactment of this typical tobacco auction scene, {Mo ) AIM01 00?2285

I want to single out one of these expa~ts. His name is Macon Jaspa~ Moye of Greenville, North Carolina ... Jack for short, and he's been a warehouseman for twenty-one years. Listen to this independent expertls opinion of Luekies: 'tMaybe we tobacco men imow better than most smokers how important good tobacco is in getting reaI smoking enjoyment. We know th~ the light, better smoking, sweeter tobacco that Lucky Strike buys gives a milder and better tasting smoke ... Thatts the opinion of a man whols started the bidding on over I00 million pounds of tobacco ... whets seen what all the cigarette companies buy, and who knows that when you ask for Lucky Strike at a cigarette counter, you get fine tobacco." Thank you~ Jack Moye. .~d there, friends, you have the opinion of an independent tobacco expert. And when men like ~Ir. Moye choose Luckles two to one ... when sworn records show that among these independent tobacco experts, Luckies have more than twice as many exclusive smokers as all other brands of cigarettes co~ined, you as an expert in your own particular line, can well understand why itls to your own advantage to smoke Lucky Strike, so roUnd, so firm, SO folly packed - so free and easy on the draw. be ATe01 007"24.2P

"YOUR HIT PARADE" Co~mer clal #2 BLOCK: Many years ago, - 16 - Lg/LgA~ friendst an old fPiend of mine once said something to me that I nevep forgot. We were talking about buying ties. He asked ms what I paid for my ties. And when I told him, he said: "Martin, always remember one thing. True economy lies in buying the best you can afford, and making the most of it," And you know, friends, I never forgot that, because that was one of the soundest pieces of logic I ever heard. "Buy the best you can affordt &nd then make the most of it." The only trouble Is that too often we donTt stop to find out, to inq~re what constitutes the best. Let.s take a look at this package of Lucky Strike Cigarettes that I have here in my hand ... the package with ~he famous red bull~s eye. It's a good-looklng package of cigarettes, and when we open it, as I do now~ we find inside twenty cigarettes. Removing one, we see that we have paid our money for twenty little white pieces of paper filled with tobacco. I guess I would be safe in saying that ninety-nlne pe~ cent of the enti~e package is tobacco~ SO that ws have the assurance that since only the flner tobacco is bought for Lucky Striket that when you buy Luokies, you are buying the best, espeelally when each and every one of those Luokies 8s you see by examirmtlon is so round, so flrm, so fu/ly paoked~ so f~ee and easy on the draw.

They may sound like silly questions to you, because we all know that a good steak was meant to be eaten, a pumpkin goes into s piep and a felt hat is meant to be worn. Different articles have different uses, we use them differently. Take a cigarette for example, you wouldnft eat it, or use it as an ornament for your hat. You smoke it. Now common sense will tell you that to get a quality smoke, you mast have quality tobacco. No cigarette can be any better than the tobacco that's in it ...
