Smoke for Pleasure today— No Cigarette Hangover tomorrow!

Remember: Philip Morris is made differently from any other leading brand. And that difference is your guarantee of everything you’ve ever wanted in a cigarette . . . tasty mildness, rich flavor, pleasant aroma … a clean, refreshing smoke . . . and NO CIGARETTE HANGOVER!


It’s a very pretty ad, but I’m not really getting the “Just like being in Cairo” vibe… Maybe they’re not talking about the one in Egypt. Perhaps it’s ones of these.

Steady Smokers turn to Camels

Frank Crilley says, “Deep down under 300 feet of water, working feverishly under terrific pressure — no place for a nervous man! That’s why a diver’s nerves must always be in perfect condition. And that’s why I smoke Camels and have smoked them for years. They are a milder cigarette and they taste better. But more important than that to me—they never upset my nervous system”

An Expert Answers 37 Most-asked Questions About Cancer (Nov, 1954)

A six page article about cancer and this is the only reference to smoking:

Q. Can you tell us something helpful about factors outside our own bodies, things we come in contact with, that might induce cancer? There have been scare stories about smoking—an impressive large-scale statistical study by the American Cancer Society had a lot to do with that, as you know, Doctor—and we hear about dangers of air pollution, auto-exhaust fumes, occupational exposures to chemicals, etc.

A. The widely publicized report—and it was only a preliminary report, at that—of the society’s smoking study seems to indicate an association between smoking and heart disease and cancer. But surely much work needs to be done to determine the nature of this association as well as the role of exhausts, air pollution, asphalt highways, and so forth, before anyone can make an accurate statement on the cause of cancer.

Extra Cigarettes (Aug, 1945)

Alas this wouldn’t work nearly as well with filter cigarettes.

Extra Cigarettes

INSTEAD of discarding those butts save them. You can make one extra cigarette out of every three, or nine from a whole pack! After cleaning ashtray (1) trim off burned ends of butts (2) and place three in a single sheet of cigarette paper (3). Roll as you would a roll-your-own (4). Photo No. 5 shows the saving from one pack—almost 50% extra smokes plus one final butt left over. It’s all right to throw this one away if you want to. This system doesn’t require the skill needed for conventional hand rolling.

Smoke The Pipe Of Peace (Dec, 1941)

Smoke The Pipe Of Peace

Your Pipe Can Be Your Best Friend Or Your Worst Foe-Here’s The Way To Select It, Break It In, And Care For It.

by Rory O’Shane

THE saddest men I know are those who have tried everything in the way of pipes and have yet to find something that is sweet, cool, and dry. Most of their complaints about sour pipes and rank tobacco could have been avoided by exercising a little discrimination in the selection and care of a pipe.

The rules for choosing a pipe are on the same par with picking a wife. You look for graceful lines, a sweet disposition, and the ability to improve with age. Three types of pipe embody these characteristics in more or less varying degrees.
