Professor Menefee has been active
in work with the camp since its
inception and has been on the camp
committee for the last few years.
He is chairman of the committee
this year. Professor Gould will not

Byrd expedition in Antarctica, but
he has been prominent in camp
work in former years. Coach Wei-

"Good Sioke!"
Says Hubby
"0. K.," with Wife
Brooklyn, N. Y.
Larus & Bro. Co.. August 4, 1928
Richmond, Va., V. S. A.
Dear .sir:
Going to take the pleasure and drop
you a few lines to say that my favorite
tobacco is your Edgeworth. I have
been a user of it for the last eight
years and find it's the only tobacco
for a real good smoke.
For the last five or six months I
have been trying several other kinds
but I find Edgeworth is the only
tobacco for me.
If I am smoking any other brand
my wife will tell me, as she likes the
smell of oily Edgeworth. When I'm
sMoking oftiers she opens all windows
and doorl.
The rea.o, for writing this letter
is that I h l:.a r-d party last night,
and most all of the party asked me
what kind of tobacco I used,
