Chief Varney says that of the many
topics brought to the attention of the
officers, none received as much at
tention as the problem of auto thefts.
All . officers agreed that efforts to
prevent thefts bad failed. Different
plans for the apprehension of thieves
were presented, one of the most in
teresting being the system In present
use by the authorities of San Fran

The assemblage . which was com

large city in the United States was
unanimous in the assertion that auto
thefts re encouraged by the lack of

selves were inclined to be less strict
with car thieves than other criminals.
One of the explanations for this at

are committed by oy riderse.
