AUTO REGISTRATION BILL NOW IS A LAW
Governor Signs Measure For New Plan of Numbering Cars
Lincoln, April 8 - The automobile registration bill is now a law, the governor having signed it. Secretary of State Pool has already made his plans to conform with the new law and has let the contracts for the new numbers to be furnished each year in different colors by the state.
The numbers for this year are plain black on a white background. Next year the color will be different and anybody operating a car under an expired license will be easy to apprehend.
The old law requiring two numbers is repealed. Now there need be but the one and the state furnishes that. However, the fee is increased from $2 to $3 for autos and from $1 to $2 for motorcycles. Of this fee, paid to the county treasurers, 35 cents is remitted to the state treasurer, and enough of it used by the secretary of state to cover the expense of numbers and registration.
It will be a matter of a week or ten days before the new numbers will be available. Those who have already taken out their licenses this year, and they number from 4,000 to 5,000, can show their receipts in place of the new numbers.
