On and after September 12, dealers as well us all other seller*, must file a certificate of transfer with their local war price and rationing boards reporting their purchase of used cars, the Fresno district OPA office announced today. Dealers, and other sellers generally engaged in the business of selling used cats, also will be required to file with thru- local boards, not later than Sent ember 21, an inventory report of all used cars In their stocks on September 1 1. Prior to this amendment to the used car regulation, purc'ri^es of used cars by dealers did rot. ha\" to be reported to local 'nurds'. This suited in some dealers otferinu to buy used cars above Vgal ceilings. Because certificates -:f transfer were riot required III sales to dealers, there was, no ready way ol checking whether dealers had n.iid higher than "as is" prices—which are maximum prices for dealers' purchases. In order to curl) the practice of purchasing used cars at higher than maximum prices the industry re-iuested OPA to require that all purchases be reported to the local war price and rationing boards. By making It necessary for dealers, as well as all other buyers of used cars, to file certificates of transfer, price clerks at the local boards will be able to check nil sales of used cars for price violations. Dealers, and other sellers generally engaged in the business of selling used cars at. n'tail. must file certificates covering' iheir purchases not. later than five days after the purchase is made. Each certificate requires 'A complete description of the cav being sold, the selling- price und a certification by both buyer and roller that the price is not in violation of tile established celling for that cur. Since there was formunv no requirement that dealers tile certificates for purchases made, the new action makes, it necessary for OPA to have a check of their stocks as of September 31, 1944, in order for the certificate reporting their purchase to have any effect. This check will be obtained in the. inventory report and will permit OPA to determine, in future transactions, should have been ETAO1N ETAO1N whether a certificate of transfer should have been filed at the time the dealer purchased the car.

The amount of a survivor's benefit payment is based on the primary benefit of the deceased worker, with respect to whose wages it is paid. A widow's benefit is three- fourths of the worker's primary benefit. A child's benefit is one-half of the deceased worker's primary benefit. Fur example: A young man who received wages averaging $150 per month over a period of 6 years, dies, leaving a widow and one child, Based on his average monthly wage of $15", his prinmry benefit would amount to Sol.50. His widow would ftet three-fourths of that or $'J!!.(j:! per month.
