Big Ten championship the most

LATEST COLLEGE SURVEY SHOWS LUCKIES LEAD AGAIN
,not so fotWY can be;
MarY Aate ~0collee
Last year a survey of leading colleges
throughout the country showed that
smokers in those colleges preferred
Luckies to any other cigarette.
This year another nation-wide survey
-based on thousands of actual student
interviews, and representative of all
students in regular colleges-shows that
Luckies lead again over all brands, regu-
lar or king size .. .and by a wide margin!
The No. 1 reason: Luckies taste better.
Smoking enjoyment is all a matter of
taste, and the fact of the matter is Luckies
taste better-for 2 reasons. L.S./M.F.T.
-Lucky Strike means fine tobacco. And
Luckies are made better to taste better.
