     6  the commissioner in such form  and  detail  as  the  commissioner  shall
     7  prescribe.

     9  issued  upon proof, satisfactory to the commissioner, that the applicant
    10  is a member of the YMCA.

    12  in the same manner as other number plates upon the payment of the  regu-
    13  lar  registration  fee  prescribed  by  section four hundred one of this
    14  article; provided, however, that an additional annual service charge  of
    15  twenty-five dollars shall be charged for such plates.
    16    4.  Each  twenty-five  dollars  received  as the annual service charge
    17  under this section shall be deposited to the  credit  of  the  New  York
