Yesterday about 50 percent of the car owners In iCpssuth county had made their applications, and It Is expected that 25 per cent more will have come In the end of the year. An estimate by W. A. Stevens, superintendent of motor vehicles tn the office of the secretary of state, Indicate that nearly a million drivers In the state are going to be without permits required by the new law.. It may become necessary for the state officials to grant more time for applications to be made before arrests will be made against Violators. If applications are made before January 1, no penalty will attach if the license had not been received. • An Interesting sidelight on the driving license law will be the effect of the. force- of liability Insurance arid Mr. Stevens said: "There is a possibility that somebody carrying liability insurance, who had not applied for a driver's license might have an accident, and the failure to ha.ve a license might be ground for holding the insurer not liable on the policy." The application total up to Tuesday night was 2,978 drivers, and 4,730 owners. Four school bus applications, four chauffeurs and one 'duplicate license 'applications were also made.
