The Algotia tipper Des Moincs, Algcfta, Iowa, Jftn' AUCTIONEERS AND DEALERS FOUND VIOLATING OPA Recent surveys made In the Des Moines district of the Office of Price Administration disclose Widespread violations of OPA regulations by auctioneers, dealers and pawnbrokers, it Was declared, today by Walter D. Kline, director; "License warning notices have been' issued to dealers and auctioneers found in violation on the surveys which have been made, Kline reported. He said enforcement action will be taken against anyone found violating the regulations. Buyers of used furniture and other used household articles should demand that sellers from whom purchases are made are complying with OPA regulations, the OPA official stated. Buyers Can Help Kline further stated that buyers can be of great assistance if they insist upon each article being properly tagged. If the buyer is in doubt, he should consult his local war price and rationing board. In this way, he said, the 'buyer will learn the correct price and help in control of what might become a difficult inflationary problem. With the exception of electric washing machines, electric refrigerators, gas stoves, vacuum cleaners, bed springs, photographic equipment and typewriters, (which articles have specif!^ regulations sotting dollar and cents ceilings), used articles are set up by OPA regulations into two classes: Class No. 1, an article with no parts missing, in good condition, clean and with good appearance, and Class No. 2, any article not meeting the standards of Class 1. Class No. 1 articles must be priced at not more than 75 per cent and Class No. 2 articles at not more than 33 1/3 per cent of the new price of the same or similar articles. Kline said the class number must be shown on a tag attached to each article, along with the ceiling price and the selling price, of all articles offered fot sale or sold by dealers or auctioneers. Items to fie Tagged Auctioneers must tag each ar* ticle showing the class and the ceiling price, Kline stated, and it is their responsibility to conclude the sale when the ceiling price is reached. No item priced at less than $2 need be tagged, he added Householders selling their own individual personal property are free from price control with certain exceptions. The exceptions are: used electric washing machines, electric refrigerators, gas stoves, vacuum cleaners, bed springs, photographic equipment and typewriters. The OPA has advised all persons wishing to sell used goods to call their local war price and rationing board for specific information. x SOUTH KOSSUTH QUINT TOURNEY HELD AT WESLEY Wesley: A tournament for girls' basketball teams of schools in the south half of Kossuth county will be held in Wesley Friday and Saturday night of this week.
