‘Tiease” Is Understatement Of Year
For nigh on five months, girls
have been passing by the appro
priately placed (?) plaque upon
whose surface is written “Please”.
This white sign against the now
grass infested lawn accentuates the
urgency of this plea, making its
cry almost audible . . . and I cry
back. Please WHAT ?
I have pondered this question to
no‘avail, concluding that it is the
most gross understatement of the
year! The sign is misleading, but
on the other hand, it is very lead-

things which I ought to have said,
and said those things which I ought
not to have said. So it goes with
our little plaque.
I have considered that the sign

If you answered “No” to all questions, you obvi
ously smoke Camels — a real cigarette. Only 6 or
7 “No” answers mean you better get on to Camels
fast. Fewer than 6 “No’s” and it really doesn’t
matter what you smoke. Anything’s good enough!
But if you want to enjoy smoking as never before,
switch to Camels. Nothing else tastes so rich,
smokes so mild. Today more people smoke Camels
than any other cigarette. The best tobacco gives
you the best smoke. Try Camels and you’ll agree!
