Serious Business Now
Since the war, many factors have joined to
turn the demonstration into serious business.
The elderly dean mentioned the growth of the
university and stiffening requirements and de demands

But a chief factor was the return of the GI

He remarked that too many either were not

it often happens that one cigarette out of a pack of Dual Filter Tareytons never does
get smoked.
People break it open to demonstrate its unique Dual Filter containing Activated
Charcoal. They may not know why it works so well, but they do know this: It delivers
far more than high filtration ... it brings out the best taste of the best tobaccos tobaccosno
no tobaccosno single filter can!
Try a pack of Tareytons. Ue believe the extra pleasure they bring will soon have
you passing the good word to your friends. W
