I hunted all over town for a gasoline tank lock, but the automobile men were just as badly stumped as the owners. Yesterday an auto supply man traveling out of Little Rock heard about my complaint from Ira HalUburton, and high-tailed it over to The Star office. He "sold" me.. And how! What he had was a patented twist- top, comprising two disks. When the key is inserted the disks are locked together and can be twisted off. When the key is withdrawn, however, the disks are cut loose from each other— the inner one remaining fast to the tank, while the outer one revolves freely, .giving the. gas thief no purchase with which to open the tank. fm still getting oh to my point about that bush** tffcr I hadn't bought that tank lock 15 minutes tSefoft * ffefK SftVi& stn- tfan man AftftMiitif atonf, aft! to6tctn« at my device, casually remarked he had been selllrtg tfte same thing Himself.
