You’re only going to get one Missouri license plate for 1944 and the colors will be decidedly different from the old 1942 plates which have been doing service during 1943. The new plate (only one, mind you) is to be attached at the rear of your car and will be black background with lemon yellow figures and lettering. The price will remain the same as if you got the regulation two plates.

H.P. Savage, who is one of the most active members of North Star Lodge No. 157, A F. & A. M., has had this interest in Free Masonry rewarded by an appointment as district deputy grand master. This, so far as we know, is the first time the local lodge has been so honored in its many years of existence. Savage’s duties will cover Atchison and Holt counties.
