P1NALTY RANGE* FROM »25 TO •6,000 FOR FAILURE TO FILE A SWORN STATEMENT OF OWNERSHIP OR BILL OF SALE. All automobile owners who hsve not previously doue so must file s sworn statement of ownership with the clerk of the court after July 26, when amendments to the Atwood Automobile Anti-Theft Law passed st the recent session of the legislature become effective. The Ohio State Automobile association wss responsible for the enactment of the law originally, also secured passage of the amendments, thst no doubt might remain as to who should (lie such statements. Under a ruling made by former Attorney General John O. Price, It wss held that only the owners of second hand cars were required to file such statements with the clerk of the court. One of the recent amend meats to the law was psssed to lesve no question on this point defining the term'"used motor vehicle" to mean a "motor vehicle" which has been operated, driven or used by and corporation, partnership, association, or person for any purpose except testing or demonstrating purposes, thus requiring; sll owners of automobiles to file a sworn statement of ownership Including those exempt under the former ruling. Such was the original Intent of the Atwood Law when enacted two years ago which with the amendments made now provide increased penalties ranging from $26 to $6,000 for failure to file a sworn statement of ownership or a bill of sale In every transaction where ownership of an automobile Is transferred. 'In the event the owner of an automobile .should sell it In a county in the state other than the one In which he purchased It, the clerk In the county where the m last sale is made Is required to communicate with the clerk of tha county where.the original purchase was made. This must be done to ascertain it say irregularities have taken place in' connection with the transaction. ,»< '• . ' Ss addition to tha aaaaHr #ro»rided for failure to- comply, with' any part ot ths law, a further penalty of from $60 to $6,000 and not more than five ysars In the penitentiary may be Imposed by the court for misrepresentation in sworn statements ot ownership or bills ot sale thst may be filed. C. M. Williams, clerk of courts of this county has Issued a letter stating that tbe law would be inforced to Its full extent and hopes to hsve all auto owners effected by the law, give the new ruling their careful observance.

We would like to go Into detail and tell you all about this splendid proposition, but time and space forbids of this today, but be dead sure to get next week's issue of the News- Times, when full details will be given and the project successfully launched. / Another Immortal Fourth will soon ba hsrs. How get ready for ltr How spend the day? Why not plan for a sane Fourth, one with a little reel patriotism in it? How many of our boys and girls today know what this natal day means for America and tbe world? How can they know, when about the only things they are treated to Is s lot ot noise snd the "merry-go-round?" To whom, on the Fourth of July are John1 Adams and Thomas. Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton and Patrick Henry end James Wilson snd even Benjamin Franklin ad Oeorge Washington more than mere names? This is the day when the Fathers of the Republic snd the Constitution ought to live anew In our minds snd hearts—when they ought so to be brought back to earth that they will Inspire aspiring youth to a like loyal service! Sidney L. Oulick has mads s wise suggestion for a sane keeping of- the Fourth: "Let each community make the Nation's Commencement Day the Commencement Day for every young man snd woman that rotes for the first time In the follow: las November; sad let ths class in- elude also sny whp are taking out their naturalisation papers. Let there be exercise suitable for such sn occasion. There could be no better oportuntty for emphasis upon tbe true meaning of ettlsensblp." Let us at least begin to think sbout some saner plan tor the Fourth. Now Is s good time to consider these "Seven Greatest Americans," Do we agree with Robinson's "Seven?" The editor of s certain western local paper says: "To msks a piece for Resevelt, this list crowds out George Washing- toil, who did mors to create our government than any other man; Alex- snder Hamilton, who did more to form For some time past, It has been noted by several local people that plants, vases, flower pots, watering pots, and other articles have been taken from graves In the Cleveland avenue cemetery. This practice has been existing for the past few months, very much to the displeasure of friends and relatives of those burled there. It Is a thing quite out of the ordinary, In tact it is hardly believable that any person or persons should have a craving for the removing ot these articles as to take them from the graves In a cemetery. Time, as well as money, Is spent by lot owners In the cemetery to keep flowers and planta on the graves, only to be discouraged to And that someone has taken them off. We are calling attention to this fact, because we believe, that If things are being taken from the graves, as reported, it should be stopped. Just how It can be stopped Is not exactly known, but any person or persons with a single ounce ot respect within themselves would surely refrain iruni tiuch practice. W. J. Hurling loft Saturday for Wadsworth where he will spend the summer. David Brennen Sr„ of Cleveland spent Saturday and Sunday In Amherst with relatives. Rev.

Six arrests were made Sunday, all of which were out-of-town people.
