about Cigarette Tobaccos
HERE ARE FOUR TYPES
of tobaccos found in the more popular
cigarettes, namely... Bright, Maryland,
Bur ley and Turkish.
A L L TLIESE T O B A C C O S except Turkish (which is
bought direct from the planters in Turkey and Greece)
and Maryland (which is bought through sealed bids
under government supervision) are bought at public
auction, just like any other auction where you might
have bought in a table or a chair.
A T T H E A U C T I O N SALE the tobacco is piled in
baskets weighing from about 100 to 500 pounds and
each purchaser buys all of his tobaccos by competitive
bidding for the particular piles he wants.
T H E C H E S T E R F I E L D BUYERS buy the best of
these mild ripe tobaccos for the Chesterfield blend.
And it is Chesterfield's Combination... the right amounts
of Burley and B r i g h t . . . just enough Maryland . . . and
just enough Turkish—that makes the big difference
between Chesterfield and other cigarettes.
I T IS BECAUSE of this combination
that Chesterfields are COOLER, have
a BETTER TASTE and are DEFINITELY
MILDER. They are made of the world's
best cigarette tobaccos. You can't buy
a better cigarette.

Reorganization—1939 Style
Despite the present definite trend toward reform in the
student government here at State, there remain fifteen class
offices which are certainly not truly representative. These
offices are class representative to MAA, and class representative and class manager on WAA.
W^W
Maloney's
Baloney
The representatives and managers are elected by all
the members of the respective classes, regardless of the fact
that the officers on MAA council serve only the men in the
class, and that the officers on WAA council guard the interests
of only the women in the class. When t h e men of a class
cast their votes for the women representative and manager
they are basing their choice on hearsay or on what seem to
be desirable qualities—desirable, that is, in a class manager
or representative. Similarly, women voting for men representatives have no knowledge of the candidates' actual qualification for office, since they have little or no accurate information as to the organization and its procedures.
