WEATHER REDUCES SALE OF LICENSES Less Than 200 Automobile Tags Bought During the First Week BELOW TAST YEARS Mias Nell .lordan, Office Manager Here. Urges Car Owners To Take Advantage of Lull To Avoid Congestion Later Although the new 1933 State auto mobile licenses have been on sn'e since and including last Thursday, December 15, Miss Nell Jordan, man ager of the Carolina Motor Club dis tributing office here, said today Icsa than 200 tags had been disposed of at the close of business Tuesday night. That covered a five-day period. M iss Jordan felt that the sonw. which made traffic difficult at best, was in large measure responsible for the few sales made so far, though she was of the opinion there was a na tural falling off in purchases by auto mobile owners. She urged the owners of cars to lake advantage of the con venience ot this lull to provide them selves with their new licenses, which they must have if they arc to con tinue to drive their automobiles. A heavy congestion is looked for, next week, as the law requires that cars not be driven after the first of January' if new 1933 license plates have not been displayed. The office is located at the same place it has been for several years past, in th* Clements Motor Com pany offices at the corner of Winder and WVche streets, to the rear of the post office. All car owners may obtain their licenses by calling there and pre senting their cards sent several weeks ago from the automobile bureau in the State Department of Revenue in Ra leigh. The prices on licenses are the same as last year, and the plates change for 1933 to a field of blue with white numerals, as oompared with black numerals on a background of yellow this year.

Warning Against Use of Fireworks A warning to the public to ob serve Ihe city ordinance against shooting fireworks In the city limits was issued today by Police Chief J. 11. Langston.

POST OFFICE HAS SMALLER VOLUME Decline In Receipts Not So • Much as in Mailings to This Date THREE EXTRA CLERKS Npo Outside Help Nec«*ssary Thus Far and Regular Force Kxpected To Handle Ail Business That. Develops A somewhat smaller volume of business, both in actual cash receipts ami in the quantity of mail handled, was reported today by Postmaster C. 11.I 1 . Wright for the Henderson‘post of fice through Tuesday of the holiday season. The decline in receipts is slightly less than that in volume, due to increased postage rates.

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 21,1^2 Shopping Crowds Larged As Time Becomes Shorter Tuesday First Big Day Experienced by Merchsm. a “Bigness” Goes at This Time; Only Three Mo r Shopping Days Left For Last-Minute Buyers The army of shoppers plodding the streets and thronging the stores.of the city increased yesterday as mtfehahts had perhaps the best volume of busi ness of the holiday buying season. It was the first day the crowds, have approached anywhere normal. Buying has not been on as large a scale as heretofore, but at that a good deal of it is being done, and mcr chans rae doing everything possible to make shopping easy and conccn ient. While volume has been somewhat less, some dealers have reported sell outs in some novelties and cohutiod itics called for by buyers. This waj due. in part, to the fact that stocks were not as large as in previous sea sons, though where an article had been sold out there were substitutes almost as good and which would fill the bill. Retailers were hoping to have a Thursday or Friday. Only three extra emplovccs have been added at the post office to handle the larger volume of business, and all of these are Inside, and all are civil service workers who have stood the examination and are thus qualified for work. It is not now ex pected that any additional outside help will be necessary. Postmaster Wright said today. If none is addadj it will be the first time in years that tbe volume has been small enough for the regular corps of workers to handle it. During much of the day Tuesday crowds milled about in the post office lobby waiting to be served and to get their packages in the mails, and this number - was expected to increase con siderably today and tomorrow. The clerks have been able to keep abreast of the rush so far, and both incoming and outgoing mails have been hand- g | RUSSELL McPHAIL’S 1 | CHRISTMAS CANDY l Sr None better—Few it* Equal M f Kemer Drug Co. 1 Prescription Druggists—Phone 112 g much larger volume ,i, r three or four days before ft' « and with even a fai, br, f,.',,/'. weather man. looked for bn k by last-minuu shoppers. • Tiie * now that fell over tit. * end had been beaten down bv and shoveled away by wnrkm point that shoppers could cei . more easily, and lht ChiiMma- ’ was more in evidence.
