Three color 10" x 14" ad that talks about the amazing Filter that sits on the end of the L & M cigarettes. There is a picture of Fredric March staring into the eyes of the readers holding a lit L & M and saying "This is it. L & M Filters are just what the Doctor ordered!". The focus of this ad is a letter from a Dr. F.R. Darkis who is in the research department of the Liggett & Myers Tobacco Co. that claims that their research found a material that completely filtered the cigarette and they have processed this material so they can use it as the filter in all L & M cigarettes. This letter refers to the Alpha Cellulose that is used for the filter and at various points in the letter it is claimed that it "effectively filtered the smoke", that it "removes over one-third of the smoke", that will "remove the heavier particles from the smoke stream" and that you will "draw into your mouth much less smoke with much less nicotine and other nitrogenous constituents".

Three color 9 1/2" x 13" ad that introduces their new King Size cigarette. The ad has a drawing of a male hand holding a pack of both cigarettes together so the size difference is evident. The ad headline proclaims "L & M Now King Size or Regular! Both Same Low Price!". The ad highlights say there is "Much More Flavor Much Less Nicotene!" and "It's the FILTER that Counts and L & M has the Best". It then says that "L & M's have already won the quickest, most enthusiastic nation wide acceptance a cigarette ever had. Now, L & M comes to visit you in King Size, too...the same great cigarette - at the same low price as regular. In either size - only L & M Filters gives you the Miracle Tip - the effective filtration you need. Get much more flavor - much less nicotene - a light, mild smoke. Yes, - it's the filter that counts...and L & M has the best".

The Number 2 is for Superior Taste which comes from superior tobaccos that were especially selected for filter smoking. There are two adults shown sharing a pack of L & M's and you are told to "Get in the L & M Circle".

The lower picture shows a couple standing close together and smoking L & M cigarettes, the man is conveniently holding the pack up to be read, with the Statue of Liberty standing proudly in the background.
