Mr. Woods breezed into Rock Island 1st yesterday afternoon, bringing with fcbn WP'.atn R Dillon, chief chauffeur exaai'-oer. and Frank Stanton, special auto pclicp efT.eer of the s'ate. Only a siort time was spent here, hut the few hews of activity are expected to re salt in a bip scramble for licenses'on tie- part of those who have neglected to provide themselves with those for the present year. Calls were made on Chief of Police James Brina and Sher iff O. I Bmner and instructions given In regard to prosecution of those who decline to act on the gentle hint con veyed. "Conditions are not as bad in Rock Island as they are In Moline," said Mr. Woods during a can at The Argus of fice. "There are. however, a good many here ho have neglected to com ply with the law. We are for the pres ent assuming that all such have mere ly forgotten to taXe out numbers, but of course, now that they have been re minded, there win be no further ex- case for mental lapses. Demonstrator Dodge Common. "There are altogether too many cars running around here with demonstra tors' numbers on them, and this must j be corrected. We have had a confer ence with local manufacturers and dealers and they have agreed to com ply with the law. In Moline we found that the fire truck and police patrol were running without numbers and we saw to it thai they were fitted out. Peoria is the best regulated town tn the matter of auto lictnse numbers that 1 have visited. There the chief cf police sets a time liialt sad when this arrives cars appearing In the streets without numbers are simply taken in charge and held till their owners secure numbers. "1 expect that the revenue from auto licenses this year win be more than $(M).000. The total number of licenses issued will be jrobably between 12V 000 and 1.25.000. Last year the total was 94.655 ud tie year before 68.012, so yon see there is an increase of about 23.000 a year.- Mr. Woods left during the evening to continue the work In other parts of the state. ir FOREST NOTES II Four buffalo calves have Just "been born on the Wichita national forest, bringing the herd np to 51.
