"Necessity 1'roof" Relaxed There arc at least two. proposals which may ease the plight of the , dealer. One is an order liberal- jizing rationing '-emulations to per;mit swifter movement of cars into the hands of eligible buyers; the other Ls pending legislation which permits the RFC to buy cars from dealers at cost, plus charges for handling, insurance and other overhead. Approximately 350.000 cars were frozen in dealers' hands by the rationing order. Only 37 per cent of the March quota of new cars was released. Congressional criticism has prompted modification of the "proof of necessity" requirement. "This is the sort of thing dealers have been fighting for now for several weeks," .said Paul Graves, manager of the Detroit Automobile Dealers' association. "It gives our men a better chance to dispose of now cars. We have enough potential, eligible buyers in this war production area to absorb every car of our quota. All we want is a chance to sell them." Urges Selling: Campaign Graves forecast that few large dealers would attempt to sell their cars back to the government under jthc proposed law unless "they are forced to by inability to dispose of their cars." Dealers in small towns and rural areas, he said, may take advantage of such an opportunity One automobile company official expressed belief that the bes way for the dealer to sell car; under the rationing program wa. to show "some of the enterpris mid aggressiveness of the old days. Many eligible parsons in need o a car still are unaware that they may obtain one, he said. , "It's up to the dealer to dp t .a selling job on the public," he em 1 - phasizcd.

Miss Trimble said collections foi the first 12 days of May totaled $411,381. Up to May 1 collections were $910,150, making a total foi the fiscal year so far of $1,321,531 This compares with 5961,000 for the 1940-41 fiscal year. Generally better business, coupled with new higher rates on corporate earnings, is responsible for the increased collections.

The State Welfare Fund is the beneficiary of the increase. After 8275,000 for road construction and $429,000 divided 50-50 between the charities and school equalization funds are set aside, the excess goes to the Welfare Department for old age pension payments. The Welfare Fund received about S200,- 000 last year, but so far this year is due to get some $600,000. The Welfare Board at its May 19 meeting will consider what to do with the surplus.
