      =======================

      Sears Roebuck also picked up another Crosley invention, a steering aid for the Model T called the Lit'l Shofur.

      The Lit'l Shofur was brilliant in its simplicity. It was basically a flat spring that connected the Model T's front frame rail to its steering tie. When a car equipped with the device hit a chuckhole, the spring pulled the wheels back to a straight path.

      =======================

      Next: Powel Crosley makes his fourth try at car-building/ the flag-holder.
