As one watches the crowds, rich
and imor, who apply for license there
is ; liu-iliii.i.; aliout it to cause
serious thoutiht. There is every in
uiCHtior. that many have to deny
themselves the n.'ee"itis of life
clothing' and pn.btbly fond in order
to keep the wheels a turning. The
scene impresses one with the fact
that a i-xtgei per cent of those who
own and operate automobiles are
not financially able to do so. But
somehow, the way for piovidinsj the
funds to puichase license and gaso
line is found.
In this eonne-.tion it might be
added that in too many instances the
way is found at ihe expense of d. ny- J hi:
