“Roll Your Own”
Smokes Have Some
ilouls Graves in Chapel Hill
The market reports tell of a sud
den rise In the demand for loose to
bacco for the making of cigarettes
in the home, and the phrase, “roll
your own,"' which had been nigh
forgotten, is heard again over the
land. Evidently an economy move.
*We observe that the alert and in
genious Mr. Hill of the American
Tobacco company, instead of trying
to stem this wave of popula- favor,
has decided to ride on the crest of
In the New York Herald-Tribune
and we suppose in hundreds of oth
er papers, he signs a big advertise
ment offering Durham Bull, togeth
er wit ha packet of the necessary
papers, at a reduced price. It will be
interesting to see how long this fad
for the home-made cigarette will
endure, and to what extent It will
cut into the sales of Chesterfields.
Camels and Luckies. The companies
that produce these brands all have
their loose tobacco ready for the
public, and perhaps they will be
just as well satisfied to have their
customers do the rolling as to do It
in their own factories.
*Td like to roll my own." my
neighbor Oscar Coffin, the Journal
allsm professor, told me one day
this week, “if it weren’t for the
sparks dropping and burning holes
in my shirts. I’d lose more money
in shirts that I’d save in tobacco. It
is especially bad when I’m typewrit
ing.” But maybe this is because the
sparks from the Coffin-made coffin
nails are reinforced by the sparks
from the Coffin literary composi
We have no reason to suppose
that our University Journalism pro
fessor is any more careless or un
lucky than other smokers, and hence
we conclude that the damage to
shirts must be a serious objection to
home-made cigarettes. We had nev
er thought of it before, but it must
be so. We have it in mind, therefore
to suggest to Mr. Hill that he man
ufacture and put on sale an asbestos
bib for the roll-your-owners. It
might be combined with some device
—a sort of windlass, about the size
of a fishing reel—-that would enable
the smoker to roll the bib up and
down In the manner of an asbestos
curtain in a theater. But we are no
inventor, and the details are beyond
us. We present the general Idea
let the mechanicians refine and per
fect it. Certainly something ought to
be done to protect the public’s shirts
from the sparks that fall from cig

wheat; some mix either this mix
ture or some small grain from some
of the winter legumes. Some mix
tures that have proven to be verv
suitable are as follows:
Mixture No. l:Rate of seed per
acre: Oats, two bushels; barley, one
bushel; wheat, one peck, vetch, fif
