PREFATORY NOTE.

Pursuant to the provisions of the Act of the General Assembly No. 9, approved the sixteenth day of March, one thousand nine hundred and twenty-three, the amendatory statutes passed at the recent session of the Legislature have been printed in the Pamphlet Laws in a different form than has heretofore been the custom. The words, phrases or provisions which have been stricken out or eliminated from the existing law by the adoption of the amendment have been enclosed between brackets [ ], and all new words, phrases or provisions which have been inserted into or added to the law by the passage of the amendment have been printed in ITALICS.

The reader, therefore, in order to ascertain the correct meaning, status and interpretation of the law as it exists since the passage of the amendatory statute, should omit the words, phrases or provisions within brackets, and should read and interpret, as part of the statute, the words, phrases or provisions printed in italics. The matter in brackets has been retained for the sole purpose of enabling the reader to discern more readily the changes made in the former law, and to compare it with the law as enacted.
