The commissioner said that DMV will be marling renewal applications for vehicles with a July I, expiration, during the month of May. "The ap- plications will state the ap- propriate fee, so that there should be no question on the part of the vehicle owner as to the proper amount that is due for renewal," Mrs. Roberts said.

CHARLESTON About 5O,000 wallet-size cards urging drivers to "Know Your Limits" if they drink before driving, are being distributed through a cooperative effort among three state agencies. The cards are being made available to the public through distribution in the 152 stares of the. W. Va. Alcohol Beverage Control Commission; the seven regional travel councils through the Travel Division of the Governor's Office of Economic and Community Development; and the W. Vs. Department of Motor Vehicles. VOTE FOR and RE- ELECT Clarence E. MARTIN III DMV Commissioner Virginia Roberts observed, "Ideally, the safest policy is not to drink before driving. But in reality, people do drink and they do drive and these two activities, on occasion, are cojoined. I am pleased that our agency is ac- tively involved in this endeavor. This approach has the full en- dorsement of the Driver's Licensing Medical Advisory Board. Too often in the past, the driver has been admonished in a negative way. We believe this effort is a more positive way of reminding the motoring public of the effects of drinking on driving alertness." ABC Commissioner Jim L. Ayres called the "Know Your Limits" concept a "sound ap- proach to safe driving. This concept is endorsed by the Distilled Spirits Council of the U.S., Inc. Many state liquor commissions have participated in this campaign and have found the public to be receptive to this realistic approach." Travel Division Director Joe Fowler observed, "This is primarily an attempt to remind the public to use common sense and responsible decision-making when driving," Magistrates Hear 294 Cases; Over $5:000 Collected g'strates ter H. Dougherty and E. W. Day heard a total of 294 cases during the month of April. The breakdown included 54 civil suits, 81 misdemeanors, 119 traffic cases, 14 felony cases and 26 worthless' check cases. A total of $5.364.80 was collected and turned over to the County Commission from these cases This breakdown included $2,519 in fines, $197 in jail fees, $1,944.75 in court costs. $310.69 for process serving and $393.36 for the county's use from costs involving worthless check charges. All monies collected are deposited with the Jefferson County Sheriff. A total of $873.33 was remitted to 25 holders of worthless checks. They didn't have time for a cancer check-up. They had something better to do with their time. They had to work, or relax with a little golf. Or go to the movies or just loaf around. They could not find five minutes for a cancer check-up so their time ran out. That's the real shame of it. The fact that every fourth cancer death is totally needless. In many cases, doctors could have cured the cancer if the patients had come to them sooner. One thing everyone should do is take lime to learn the seven warning sig- nals of cancer. They won't prevent you from getting it, but they could save your life. Here they are: 1. Unusual bleeding or discharge 2. A lump in the breast or elsewhere 3. A sore that does not heal 4. Change in bowel or bladder habits 5. Hoarseness or cough 6. Indigestion or difficulty 7. Change in a wart or mole Of course, medical research is constantly working to find better ways to cure cancer. And doctors are quick to put these discoveries to work. But there's more than just treatment. There's prevention. We at Blue Cross and Blue Shield feel the more you know about cancer, the better you'll be able to protect yourself against it. We're also striving to remove the financial barriers for those who need medical care. Blue Cross and Blue Shield maintains a strong and unique relationship with hospitals and doctors, a relationship that helps make better health possible for everyone. We believe there's more to good health than just paying bills.
