OF INTEREST TO AUTO OWNERS

Mr. J. P. Galloway,
Sheriff Marion County:
' Dear Sir: I wish to advise you that
there is absolutely no excuse for any

respectfully request thdt you enforce
the law rigidly in your county.
The office issues a license the same
day the application is received, and
there is no delay at thi3 end, and no
reason why anyone should be without
their license numbers.
Where a car is carrying a "B" tag,
and has a truck body it is doing so in
violation of-the-law, and the matter
should be corrected. All cars which
are used for hauling other loads than
passengers, the law defines as trucks,
Land are liable for truck fee, which is
ten dollars when the carrying capaci
ty is one ton or less.
I also wish to call your attention
to the fact, that when a car has been
recently purchased from a dealer, the
law provides for the new owner to use
the dealer's license for fifteen days,
which time is sufficient for same to
procure his private license numbers
from this office, and there is no reas-
on for any car to be operated without'
a license tag.
I also wish to call your attention

and I am of the opinion that in many

I also wish to call your attention to

is of course very apparent to you the
