J. Theodore Meyer (R- 28th) sailed through the Huse on'luM vote. If the bill (HB 381) Is passed by the Senate and signed into law by Gov. Thompson, the state would save approximately J21 million over a five-year perod and drivers would be , spared the annual cold weather chore of replacing their license plates," Meyer said. "This is a bill of taxpayer economy and convlence," Meyer said. "It incorporates a concept that has become quite popular throughout the country for a variety of reasons. Already, some 44 states have gone to a multi-year plate system. "The biggest advantage is in the millions of dollars that the state would save. No longer would we have to pay for the manufacture of license plates every year. "The decals, or wliatever kind of device that would be affixed to the new heavy duty plate, would cost pennies to manufacture, and Free diabetes tests offered storage costs for these devices would be minimal. "There would also be a great savings in postage costs because the devices would be much cheaper to mail than large, bulky plates. ". Meyer said the, bill requires that the new multiyear system be incorporated in 1979. The secretary of state would decide how long a life span the plates would have, depending on how well the metal or material selected for use in the plates holds up. According to some estimates, the plates could last from two to more than five years. KC council aids retarded Elmer F, Janda (left), SC2 S.

Jack Wheeler, our genial Boss, dashed in the other day waving a newspaper. "Have you seen," he asked, "how much they're getting for new cars these days? Why, it's as much as I paid for my first house!" (Of course w£ knew what new cars cost. The only reason h£ didn't know was because the bank pays for his car, the lucky dog.) "No wonder they have trouble selling the things. How can anyone afford one?" he ranted. "What can we do about it?" "Write a letter to Ralph Nader," suggested Jack's secretary. "No, no, no! Something more direct," he demanded. "How about cutting our loan rates?" the head of Consumer Loans timidly proposed. "Can we afford it? We're paying record rates on savings accounts these days, y'know," Jack pointed out. But he didnfr say no. "Sure," said the Consumer Loan manager, encouraged. "We could cut them a little, anyhow." "Okay, do it! Cut 'em all you can!" And he stalked off to his office to read the Watt Street Journal with a sense of real accomplishment. Here's what we came up with: The old Annual Percentage Rale was 10.17%. We've cot it to an Annual Percentage Rate of just 9,29%! You won't find a cheaper rate at any bank in the area. And we'll lend up to 80% of the car's vahie. So if you're about to buy a new car, see us for the loan. Soon. Before the Boss decides it wouldVe been cheaper to write a letter to Ralph Nader. Now get a car loan with an Annual Percentage Rate of just Ford City The 7-Day Bank! 7691 S.
