PLATE PLIGHT: Although there were only five persons in Ann Arbor's secretary of state branch office to buy car license plates this morning, there wasn't room for many more. Car owners are urged to buy their plates as soon as possible to avoid waiting outside in the weather because the office can hold only about 10 to 15 people.

COLD LICENSE BUYERS: This line of some 40 cold, and in many cases complaining, auto license plate buyers had formed by 9 a.m. today outside the Ann Arbor license sales office at 307 S. Fifth Ave. - a half hour after the office opened. With today and tomorrow left to buy 1957 plates before 1956 plates expire, the lines were expected to remain lengthy, with most persons in them spending substantial time outside. The small office can accommodate 10 to 15 persons inside at one time.
