"A Tribute to Football," by Grantland Rice; the uncommon use of poetry to sell smokes. Picture of a stadium, with a giant smoking cigarette sticking in it as if it were an ash tray. And if that isn't enough weird symbolism, note that the ad claims "another all-star eleven" and it takes you a second to realize they were referring to the eleven letters in the words "they satisfy". Ah, those zanies in the ad department. From the November 29, 1936 issue of LIBERTY.
