While the foregoing specification sets forth the
invention in specific terms, it is to be understood
that numerous changes in the shape, size and
materials may be resorted to without departing
from the spirit and scope -of the invention as`
claimed hereinafter.
Having described the invention, what is claimed
as new is:
1. An velectrical connector comprising male and
female sections each having a body of conductive
material formed with a longitudinal bore, the

and said- conductors being provided with means » for connecting circuit wires therewith. v
2. An electrical connector comprising male and
female sections each having a conductive body
formed with a longitudinal bore and a lining of
insulation `for its bore, said male section having
