More Doctors smoke Camels THAN ANY OTHER CIGARETTE (Aug, 1946)

According to a recent Nationwide survey – More Doctors smoke Camels THAN ANY OTHER CIGARETTE

Everybody knows him… Early or late, he’s a familiar figure to every policeman on the street —he’s the Doctor—he’s on an emergency call!

A Doctor’s life isn’t his own to live as he chooses. There are interrupted holidays and vacations and nights of broken sleep. Emergencies require his presence for long, exacting hours . . . with somewhere a pause and perhaps the pleasure of a cigarette. Then back to his job of serving the lives of others.

Mechanical Novelties (Mar, 1936)

This is the earliest electric hand drier I’ve seen. It’s even got a photocell to start it when you put your hands in. Though I must say the cigarette lighter is pretty offensive in our time.

Mechanical Novelties

• HERE is a model fire truck—at least, it looks like one. As a matter of fact, the English fireman pictured is on top of a full-sized water tower, and the picture taken from 50 feet above.

Ice Flows from Tap Like Water
• WITH ice a necessity, for so many comfortable beverages, a good deal of time is spent cracking and dishing it. The machine below for bars and fountains, is very handy. It grinds down ice with a 1/4-H.P. motor; and a glass held under the faucet is at once filled with a flow of ice.

DOCTOR DISPUTES LINK BETWEEN SMOKING, CANCER (Nov, 1957)

DOCTOR DISPUTES LINK BETWEEN SMOKING, CANCER

The case against tobacco is derived mostly from statistical associations and some experimental work with animals, says Dr. Harry S. N. Greene, chairman of the department of pathology, Yale University Medical School. There is yet no sound proof that cigarette smoking is a cause of human lung cancer.

In a book, Science Looks at Smoking, by Eric Northrup, published by Coward-McCann, Inc., New York, Dr. Greene says this about his own smoking pleasures:

HOW TO CONSTRUCT A FUN – PROVOKING Cigarette Dispenser (May, 1936)

HOW TO CONSTRUCT A FUN – PROVOKING Cigarette Dispenser

When the fisherman’s figure is pushed backward, one of the fishes instantly disgorges a “butt”

By HOWARD R. HEYDORF

STRUGGLING with his catch, this comic fisherman seems to be fighting a pretty hopeless battle. Give him a little help by tilting him backward and he will reward you with a cigarette delivered through the mouth of one of the fishes. He will continue to deliver cigarettes one at a time till the magazine of thirteen is empty.

GUARD OIL FIELD WITH CIGARETTE LIGHTER (Apr, 1933)

Because the idea of making the entire area a non-smoking zone would just be unthinkable.

GUARD OIL FIELD WITH CIGARETTE LIGHTER
An electric cigarette lighter, shielded from the weather by a small roof, is an odd sight at a corner of a Beaumont, Texas, oil field. So dreaded a hazard is fire here that workmen are forbidden to carry matches. Violation of this rule is considered almost as serious an offense as it would be in a powder plant. To encourage its observance, the owners of the field installed the lighter, just outside the danger zone, for the convenience of employees who wished to smoke during the noon hour. As a result, the field boasts an enviable safety record.
