It's the Only Way That Real Tobacco
Hunger Can Be Entirely
" OLD KENTUCKY " IDEAL CHEVY
Since tobacco was first Introduced to
civilization, nobody has ever discovered
so supremely satisfactory a way to get
all the flavor and enjoyment out of it
as chewing it And no other form of
chew can give you the hearty, whole
some," juicy flavor that you get
from a delicious high-grade flng tobac
co like Old Kentucky.
The secret of the greatest chewing
satisfaction lies in the selection of your
chew. Among plug tobaccos the brand
that gets the most enthusiastic en
dorsement is undoubtedly Old Ken
tucky. The reason for this is not hard
Old Kentucky is made exclusively of
ripe Kentucky Burley the most richly
flavored chewing tobacco that grows.
Still more, only the very choicest of
all the Burley leaf is used for Old
This choice leaf is selected with the
most painstaking care, is stemmed by
hand, is thoroughly washed free of all
foreign matter and is pressed into
plugs so slowly that not a drop of
juice or an atom of flavor escapes.
Moreover, Old Kentucky is made under
the most rigid, cleanly and sanitary
The result is a sweet, mellow, lus
cious, satisfying chew that cannot ba
obtained in any other tobacco than Old

Coach ration s South High basket ball
warriors are rounding Into splendid con
dition for their fray with Nebraska City
Friday night. The fast wlndup on the
Bellevue gymnasium floor Tuesday even
ing, where wax and slse were two big
handicaps, showed South High rooters
that their team la among the best in the
state. The game wound' up with the
score standing 38 to 12 In the college's
favor, but had been 24 to 12 at the end of
the first half. Graham, forward on the
local team, shot three baskets that were
not counted, fouls having been called juat
as the ball was sent into the air toward
Tram Work Larklna.
Lack of team play between the two for
wards and the center Is attributed as the
cause of the poor showing of the South
team of late. Coach Patton has devised
several plays, one In particular, which
was tried out and worked with consider
able surcean on the Bollevue floor. Ne
braska City Is said to have a strong
team this year and -will give the local
team a stiff fight on their own floor,
which Is far from regulation slie. South
High defeated the Nehraskans on their
own floor last year and expect to do the
same this' year. .
