STATE HIGHWAY COMMISSION
ISSUES WARNING TO AUTOISTS
Less Thin ilalf of License Plates Ap.
plied For and Time is Limited.
'For the information of automobile
owners who desire to take out their
license for 1918 the highway depart
ment states that a supply of applica
tion blanks for 1918 have been for
warded to every dealer in the state,
and also a supply has been sent to the
clerk of court, of every county. Own
ers can obtain same by applying to
these dealers, or to the clerk of court,
and thus save considerable time, as in
most cases they can obtain the neces
sary information as to the horse pow
er of their automobile, the motor num
ber, the model, style and such Infor
mation required by the highway de
partment before the license can be is
stJed. A simple referene to th 1917
license number is not sufliont and
an application must be filled out and
sent In for each motor vehicle.
As the time is getting very short
and no authority is given any One
uman In the state, or to any group of
men, save the legislature, to extend
the time limit it would be wise for all
owners of motor vehicles to make ap
plication promptly so as to get tlheir
license plate at the earliest possible
moment. Up to Saturday night, Jan
uary 19th, less than half of the licenses
issued for 1917 have been taken out for
1918, and though the highway depart
meant Is working over time they will
not be able to Issue all licenses before
February 1st. iowever, this will be
no excuse for automobile owners and
under the law they cannot operate
their motor vehicles without the 1918
license plate on same, whether they
have made application for their license
