Milo cigarettes were a real brand that was specifically marketed to women ("For the woman of discernment…") in the early 20th century. I don’t know if this is a form of product placement — a common form of advertising even in the ’40s — but, knowing William Moulton Marston, it’s more likely a criticism of bad habits.
