K e e p O n C k a i u i n ' Although there is a decline in the population of tobacco chewers here at Paul Smith's, the students in the block program at Gabes are mitigating the possibility of having a chew free forester group out of the eighty students par­ ticipating in the block program. There are ten of us who are hanging on to the tradition. Among the favorite brands of smokeless tobacco chewed by the Gabriel connoi- seurs are* Skoal, Redman, and Beechnut. Skoal is a leafless form of concentrated tobacco which is placed between the lip and gum. As Walt Garrison would say \It feels mighty relaxin in there.\ Redman and Beechnut are leaf tobacco sealed in an a i r tight pouch to keep the contents fresh. Red Redman is not only enjoyed by our student foresters but also by professional ball players such as Sparky Lyle and Cat­ fish Hunter. These players endorse the smokeless tobacco product which has increased in popular­ ity among pro ball players. It has also become popular in college ball. Skoal seems to be the most popular with the Gabriel terminals. Skoal has a Winter- green flavor and is kept in a small round tin . A bit of Skoal under the lower lip is referred to a dip or a pinch. As a matter of fact, last week a female termie asked me for a pinch. Of course I obliged. It did, indeed, look odd to see a young lady spew sp i t t l e from her mouth. I didn't care too much and she didn't either. We chewers do get our share of com­ plaints. When folks that are benevolent eno ucfr to give us a ride and put up with ur spitting out the window,find a brown racing stripe down the side of their car, they don't take too kindly to i t . I don't blame them there But when a person te l l s me how disgust- int chewing is, while blowing a lungful1 of smoke into my face I have no mercy. I have also been told that my teeth will rot and fall out and that my gums will rot. According to most doctors and dentists tobacco chewing is hygenically good for you mouth. At thw worst it will stain you teeth a light yellow, not a dark brown. I have been a smokless tobacco man for nearly two years. I enjoy a good chew out in the field and also in my room where I can expectorate into my antique cuspidor while study ng. Bring back the tradition. Give it a try! B.
