Auto Plunges Over Bank.
Six persons, members of a touring
party from Mason City, la., had a
narrow escape Sunday when the auto
in which they were riding plunged
over a 150-foot embankment on South
Lake drive into Fountain lake, near
Albert Lea. One of the occupants of
the car, who was pinned "beneath the
machine at the bottom of the lake, was
severely injured, but his recovery is
The Stealing of Automobiles.
Because of the alarming increase in
automobile thefts, insurance compa
nies furnishing protection against
such losses have announced that here
after no policies will be written cover
ing the full value of cars. Instead the
owner must accept a reduced valuation
and assume part of the risk himself,
although the premium remains the
same. In effect if not in name this
amounts to an increase in rates.
Probably the insurance companies
cannot be blamed for this action.
There seems to be no place where an
unguarded automobile is safe. No
lock yet devised has proved entirely
adequate. Laws for the protection of
automobiles, both state and national,
seem to be even less adequate than
locks. Most of these have been aimed
at the thief by providing punishment
for him if caught. Massachusetts,
however, has devised a system which
makes thievery unprofitable by hedg
ing about with many restrictions the
sale of used cars. Under its opera
tion the number of cars stolen in Bos
ton was reduced from 1,080 in 1919 to
460 in 1920, and a very large part of
those taken last year were traced to
so-called joy-riders and not to profes
sional thieves.
Under the Massachusetts plan all
dealers in used cars must obtain a
state license, revokable for cause. A
regular state inspection of their stocks,

books and records is provided for and
they must report in detail as to all
cars accepted for sale and give notice
of sale as well. Individual owners dis
posing of their cars to dealers or oth
ers must also follow this rule. The
administration of this act has been
perfected to such an extent that it is
said to be nearly automatic in the de
tection of a stolen car, and the state
records now show absolute continuity
of ownership of every car registered
in Massachusetts from the time it first
was sold until it is junked or sold out
of the state. Dealers arc very cau-1
tious in receiving cars for sale, for if
caught with stolen automobiles their
licenses will be revoked instantly. Be
cause of this and other causes 500
persons who were registered dealers
in 1920 are not listed on the 1921 rec
Stealing automobiles has thriven in
the past because those engaged in
that business have had an unlimited
and unrestricted market for their
goods. Closing up the market and
making it difficult to dispose of a
stolen car seems a better way of
reaching the evil than the mere
catching and conviction of the thief
who is willing to take a chance with
the courts if he can be sure of a good
profit if he succeeds in his undertak
It is certain that some drastic steps
must be taken by every state to pro
tect private property in automobiles.
The Massachusetts system is well
worth studying in this connection.
