Spotting tiifi Stickers War has necessitated so many automobile slickers, each lo be "prominently displayed on your windshield," that an actual safety hazard is created. The National Safety Council suggests how the difficulty can be met. Hide the federal vehicle use stamp and any slicker necessary to enter Army bases. The mileage ration slicker should go on the left rear side window.' State or city registration stickers can be pasted on the bottom edge of lhc;windshicld at tho extreme right. Inspection stamps might go in the extreme upper right-hand corner of tho •windshield. The important thing is lo let nothing obscure the driver's vision in any direction in which danger to the vehicle or' to other persons might lie.
