OPA Announces New Gas Coupon Rules . When Cars Are Sold Clear Lake--"A new plan designed to assure the return of outstanding gasoline ration coupons for all new and used automobiles 'and trucks that are sold is now in effect," J. R. Buttleman, chairman o£ war price and rationing board 17-2, announced Tuesday. "Persons buying new or used cars, either from dealers or a private party, must obtain from the seller a duplicate receipt in order to be eligible for a gasoline ration. The owner of a vehicle must return to the board, in person or by mail, all unsued ration coupons issued for the vehicle he intends to sell. "After the board receives the coupons a 'receipt for surrender gasoline rations' will be issued in duplicate. The seller gives both receipts, together with the tire inspection sheet, to the buyer of the car or truck. "Automobile dealers are to obtain duplicate receipts for each tar they have for sale just as in the niase o£ private individuals who have cars to sell. Each dealer by Jan. 11 must report his inventory as of Dec. 31 to the board. The board will send his duplicate receipts for each car reported. "The buyer is to give the original copy of the receipt to the state motor vehicle registrar when applying for a new registration certificate. The duplicate .receipt and the tire inspection record are to be given to the board by the buyer when he applies for a new gasoline ration. Without his receipt the board cannot issue a new ration."
