1935 Tags go on Sale in December

H.C. Swallows, county court clerk, received information from J.C. Baxter, supervisor of the Motor Vehicle Division as follows:

"Commissioner Fort and I have discussed the matter of placing 1935 tags on sale in December. We have decided the everybody concerned will profit by waiting until after the Legislature passes on the price and expiration date for the year 1935 before placing them on sale. Please explain this to the parties interested in securing 1935 license plates."

Yours very truly,
Supervisor, motor vehicle division
