Case, Secretary of State, liaa renewed his caution to motorists against haphazard attaching of license plates to their motor vehicles. Records of the department of state over many years show that thousands of plates are lost in the early part of each license year, indicating that those who are going to loae plates, lose them shortly after they attach them to their cars. No definite count of the number of platea actually lost is possible. Some, of course, are stolen; others are mutilated in accidents. A set of duplicate passenger or commercial plates costs $2; municipal duplicate plates cost 25 cents. Dealers pay $15 a pair for their first three sets of plates, and $5 per set thereafter, but subsequent duplicates do not indicate losses, but rather the desire to equip additional cars with dealers' plates for demonstration purposes. In 1937, the department of state collected $52,307.75 from the sale of duplicate plates. The 1938 total will probably reflect the drop in registration. Though collections from this source for the first three months of 1938 totalled $29,299.50, the total for the corresponding period of 1937 was $35,841.25. Leon D. Case Addresses Auto Dealers In City Last Evening Secretary of State Leon D. Case was the principal speaker at the Curry Hotel last evening when he addressed a meeting of the Gogebic county automobie dealers.

The pastor of St. Luke's church, the Rev. Arthur F. Fergln, explains the confirmation ceremony as administered in the Lutheran church as follows: "It is a rlto by which baptized children publicly and with thetr own lips renew and confirm tho vow made by their sponsors at baptism and confess their adherence to the teachings of the Lutheran church. The rite is preliminary to the admission to the Lord's Table, and as such It signifies the entrance of the catechumen into communicant membership in the Lutheran church. Its educational value lies chiefly in the course of instruction preceding confirmation and in the solemn vow which Is made to continue in the faith."
