Ad: Marksmen Prefer Camels (Feb, 1938)
I was a smoker for about five years and I have never smoked a cigarette that “refreshed” me. It’s tobacco, not meth. Although when you’re sitting in a cube for hours on end jonesing for a smoke it certainly may seem refreshing.
I love the fact that the sniper’s name is Triggs. He was kinda born for that job, wasn’t he?
Do Expert Marksmen find that Camel’s Costlier Tobaccos make a Difference?
“YES, SIR, in any bunch of expert shots â€” Camels are the favorite cigarette,” says Ransford Triggs, one of the foremost marksmen in America. “Marksmen know that it takes steady nerves to make high scores. And the fact that Camels don’t frazzle my nerves goes over big with me. I smoke plenty of Camels every day, too.”
And millions of other people â€” the most loyal group of smokers in the world – put their “O. K.” on Camels too â€” making Camels the largest-selling cigarette in America
TAKING X-RAYS is a delicate jobâ€”and a tiring one too. But as Miss Myrtle Sawler, X-ray technician, says: “When I’m tired, a Camel refreshes me. I get a ‘lift’ with a Camel.”
“I’M HANDLING money by thousands,”says bank teller, John McMahon. “Jittery nerves don’t fit in with this work. So it’s Camels for me.”
HOME economist, Elizabeth May, says: “There’s a world of comfort in smoking Camels ‘for di-gestion’s sake,’ at mealtimes.”
Camel pays millions more for COSTLIER TOBACCOS! Camels are a matchless blend of finer, MORE EXPENSIVE TOBACCOS-Turkish and Domestic.
