failure of peace officers to enforce the
law passed during the last session of
the Gleneral Assembly against tire Irse

law Is being ignored, much to the an
noyance. of those who drive and to
the detriment of the roads over which
they pass. The Advertiser agrees with
jhi citizen that the law should be en
While on the traffic laws, we might
also call attention to the fact that
autonoblles are being driven In tiA
county without 1922 llcense plates. To
rllow, this to continue is not only to
enccurage the violation of the law, but
it Is a discrimination against those
who have paid their license fees. Be
sides the money is due the state and
county treasuriies for expenses.
The Advertiser will also call atten
tion to the annoyance to travellers.of
the huge cotton trucks now found so
much on the county highways. Of
course there Is no law agaffitthis, burt
their failure to move out of tihe center
of the r'oad 'pr'omptly wvhen a wvarning
