1963 flashback


Back in the fall of 1963 when I was a freshman at what was then called Indiana State College (now university) in Terre Haute, I decided 35¢ was too much to pay for a pack of cigarettes.

So I went down to the Osco drug store on Wabash Avenue and bought a Bugler cigarette rolling machine like this and took to rolling my own.

I eventually gave it up because I didn’t care for the taste of unfiltered Bugler tobacco and switched to Viceroy, which I continued to smoke until the late 1970s when I quit smoking altogether.

I don’t miss it.
