Such is not the case. This sea-

husband in a car. The couple left
the Windy City for home, stopping
at Michigan City, Indiana, for a
brief rest Both went to sleep. Mr.
Wilcox was awakened by his dog
licking his face and upon looking out
of the rear window of the car saw a
wrecking car ready to hook on to his
auto. One of the menv with the
Wrecker saw him and turning to his
companion remarked, '.'There's a guy
in this car; we'd better beat it."
Thus a new graft in stealing cars
was exposed, it evidenty being the
practice , of car thieves to hook onto
parked cars and under cover of tow-
