Police Commissioner Ringer, ex

and others spoke.
Mr. Ringer declared himself in
favor of drastic laws to puuish not
only the thieves but the. "fences" 01
go-betweens who receive and dispost
of the stolen automobiles. He also
endorsed a recommendation by J. W.
Rasp that an abstract be demanded
from every seller of an automobile,
giving the full pedigree of the cat
trom the time it was made just as ii
now required in a sale of real estate.
"If we could send the yegg who
steal these machines to tne peniten
tiary for about 20 years" said ex-Chiei
Dunn, "it would go a long way in
putting a stop to automobile stealing.
At present we have sent a goodly
number of auto thieves to the peniten
tiary but as soon as they have served
their minimum sentences the parol
board turns them loose and they rc-.
turn to their old game.
