Unless automobile owners ap­ plying for renewal of registration for 1928 submit with their appli­ cations positive proof of owner­ ship there may be delay at 'the issuing offices.

If the car owner who applies for registration has lost his 1927 renewal stub he may secure a duplicate stub, if he acts at once. On and after December 27th the owner, without a dupli­ cate, A ill be required to present a bill ot sale or certificate of pur­ chase, indicating that ownership is in his name. All who own automobiles are aware that the 1927 number plates may not be used on their cars after December 31st, and that plates for 1928 must be dis­ played if the cars are to be driven on January ist and thereafter.
