Prosecuting oftl' irs and representa- <
fives of State automobile associations 1
took opposite sides to-day at the j
House Ways and Means Committee's r
Iicarine on the automobile registra
lion bill of Represcntataive Mills of !'
S^ow York. The measure is designed ,
to cut down wholesale motor car j i
thefts by requiring that each car be '
stamped with a Federal registration :'
number at a cost of $2 to the owner, j,
As a revenue getter it would produce it
approximately $26,000,000 the first
year and $6,000,000 for each succeed- 1
ins year. ' '
.Toab H. Banton, District Attorney j 1
of New York county, speaking for the ,
bill, declared it would be the greatest ,
deterrent of bootlegging and major i
crimes which, he said, are facilitated
by the use of automobiles. i
"In New York city," said Mr. Banton. ;
"In 1921 there were 6.808 automobiles
stolen and In 1920 there were 5.129, or
i bout $6,000,000 worth of cars. Tills bill
would have prevented that loss. There
nr.- to-day in New York city automn- , |
bile firms that make it a regular bii3i- (
ress to manipulate stolen cars so that
they will not be identified. A machine i.* i
i tolen to-day and to-morrov you would ,
not recognize it. The engines and bodies ,
ere changed, numbers scratched out and

Ready Market for Cars.
Members of the committee sought to
establish the fact that the tntire matter I
could be handled by the States, but Mr. !
i-tanton said It would be Impossible for a j
state law to *caeh the offenders. The
automobile crooks, he said, lave a ready
market for the machines. Knowing that
i lie State laws cannot reach them. Tf a
federal law was passed under which it !
was possible to prosecute those having
machines whoso identification marks are i
mutilated the market for stolen cars
would be eliminated, be asserted.
Henrcsentatlve Watson (Ta.) asked
if the witness had much trouble with
"No, but In the upper tier States. I understand.
all the cars vised by bootleg- i
gers arc stolen cars," said Mr. Banton. |
Letters were received by the committee
from the District Attorney of Monroe
county and from Rochester. X. Y., i
urging the passage of the bill. )
Representative Ten Kyck (N. Y.) declared
the bill to be ?n "opening wedge" ;
for unlimited taxation upon automobiles i
, throughout the United States. Every
State in the Union has placfd a tax on
the motor vehicle and for the Govern- i
ntent to do so now would mean that '
automobile owners would pay a double
direct lax. lit? oixwira. i
\ H. M. Rowe, former member of the
American Automobile Association, opposed
the bill on the ground that fur- :
ther taxation upon the automobillat
and the automobile manufacturer
would become burdensome. He as- ,
rted that motor owners already had
-paid taxes aggregating $311,500,000. If
the District Attorneys and the courts
would attach heavy' penalties on motor
thieves. Mr. Rowe said, there wrould j
not be many ears stolen.
"You send n man to Jail for six years i
for stealing a loaf of bread, but you
give him sixty days for stealing a
car," he said.
Melvin T. Render, representing the
New York State Automobile Association.
also opposed the hill. He declared
It would create additional governmental
machinery and add to the red tape now
placed on the automobile owners by the
States in compelling registration, licensing
and titlihg.
*100,000,IIOO In Ian Stolen.
t Hiram C. Todd. 1'nlted Htatea Attorney
for the Northern District of New
York, asserted that during 1931 $100,000,000
worth of automobiles was stolen
In the United States and only a stnall
percentage recovered. At a roc-nt
meeting of the Kederat and State at:orne>s
of New York Stute. he said, it
v?s the sense of the attorneys that
next to the revolver the automobile
was the most useful aid of the crook !
In the commission of crime*.
"The horse thief wit* the menace of i
the rattle industry of the West In the
early days," sold the witness "hut lie '
has ceased his depredations. Why?
They branded their animals so they
could Identify them, and then strung up
the thief as soon It* they caught him. I
We can follow this excellent example
l?v branding our ears with u permsr'-nt
federal number, and althouah we
cannot hang a motor thief we can see | t
that severe punishment Is provided by 1
law and imposed by the rourtn."
"Your taxing proposals." said Reprssantntlve
Carew IN. V.), to the wit-'
neat, "Is a mere subterfuge, You have
stated yourself out of court. We enjinot
go before the Rouse with n revenue
nresKure which you yourself hsve stated
Is s measure for the stippi esslon of
crime. The purpose of this hill Is te
resist the police In ^nforrhig the law.
If you make the registration >2 and the |
term of Jail sentence for automobile '
thieves twenty years it seems to me
the States could end the crime wave." |
"Not only Is It an net of suppressing
criminals." said Mr. Todd, "but In protecting
the Innocenr pnrrha r of automobiles
from rfooked dealers. This ,
measure provides for n. registration of
the ear and necessarllt oarrlws with tit |
a history of the cur. If mortgages ai|e

them to all the city's official
When Marshal Foch made his tour
