Flash: Here's A Racing Driver
Who lhwsn't Smoke Cigarettes

T hreatened By Gang

The name of Ab Jenkins is familiarE
to you if you read automobile adver-
tisements. Searching the back pages
of practically any magazinu for the
end of that continued story, you must
have come upon the picture of this
"intrepid racing driver; who defied
death that science might advance in
its tortuous course toward automo-
tive perfection."
Of course, in these days of super-
chargers, polished inlet ports, special
high compression, and a thousand
other what-nots, 117 miles an hour is
not sensational speed for an automo-
bile to make. But when a driver can
average that speed for more than 25
consecutive hours in a temperature
of 115 degrees, he must, as the gen-
tlemen on the sporting desk say,
"have something on the ball."
And he did, as those who last night
witnessed the showing of films of theC
test drive, can attest. For 40 minutes,
members of the Transportation Club
and the A.S.M.E. sat spellbound be-
fore pictures of the daring drive. To
cap the show, Ab Jenkins was there in
person, to explain and elaborate on
the movie.
After the showing of the run, which
broke more records than Jenkins can
remember (67 in all), he offered to
answer any and all questions which
the audience had to make. And, as he
said later, that was probably a harder
job than the drive.
He was pelted with queries ranging
from gas consumption to tire wear,
from oil feeding to questions on the
automatic timing devices. One engi-
neer even wondered if he smoked a
popular brand of cigarettes which
claims to be good for the nerves.
"No," said Jenkins, thereby passing
up a chance for a healthy testimonial
fee, "I never touch whisky or to-

bacco." Nobody had the nerve to in-
quire about beer.
Perhaps the most novel feature of
the run was brought out in the movie.
Driving at a speed of 125 miles an
hour, Jenkins had shaved himself,
and without a scratch. Which
achievement, speaks for his nerves,
cigarettes or no cigarettes.
Mr. Jenkins was brought here
through Russell Howe, '25E, who is a
research engineer for Pierce-Arrow.
Howe is an alumnus of the local
chapter of Kappa Delta Rho fra-
ternity, and he invited Jenkins to
appear as the guest of that house
Sunday afternoon. The movie was
also presented there.

are Alays n to our throat
so round, so firm, so fully packed-no loose ends
that's why you'll find Luckies do not dry out

We think you'd be

impressed if you saw

Luckies being made. You'd see those clean,
silky center leaves-and you really wouldn't
have to be a tobacco expert to know why
farmers get higher prices for them. They are
the mildest leaves-they taste better.
You'd be impressed by Lucky Strike's
famous process-"It's toasted"- designed
for your throat protection. And we know

that you'll be truly fascinated when you see
how Luckies are rolled round and firm,
and fully packed with long golden strands
of choice tobaccos. That's why Luckies
"keep in condition"-why you'll find that
Luckies do not dry out-an important point
to every smoker. And you'll get the full
meaning of our statement that Luckies
are always in all-ways kind to your throat.

"It's toasted"
