The greatest amount of collections--$162,116--was in the food group, Walter D. K l i n e , district OPA director, said Thursday. Action was taken by the district enforcement division in 484 f o o d cases. The division made 2,713 investigations during 1944 and found violations in 2,218 cases, taking ·0 AS TIE CHAMPIONS DO! fake with P t M j . . . « - r » . cue, pic*. 5-poood ··Ietr*«calcd car- too-Ajkfbrittodv. formal enforcement actions in 952. Informal adjustments were made in 372 cases, and admonitory letters were s«nt to 422 violators. George E. O'Malley, district enforcement attorney said the division brought 97 injunction actions--27 of them involving illegal sale of gasoline and 18 Involving over-the-ceiling sales of meat and violations of meat rationing. Fifty-two treble damage actions involving over-the-ceiling sales, were disposed of in court with collections as follows: ' 15 meat cases, $70,775; 2 egg cases, $1,299; 12 butter, $11,118; 1 cigaret, $2,328; 2 corn (canned), $3,500; 2 trucks, $2,807; 1 peanuts, $1,009; 2 farm machinery, $1,869; 3 steel castings, $4,225; 1 coal, $1,423; and 1 milling services, $8,773. The division issued 11 warning notices, involving food, used farm equipment, used furniture, used automobile parts, waste paper and used washing machines. Such notices are used to advise ·violators ot their violations and to warn them that continued violations may lead to court action to suspend their licenses to do business for a period not to exceed IZ months. One license was revoked last year. The division also issued 13 suspension orders, 11 suspending dealers' rights to sell gasoline and 2 to sell tires. Ten of the suspensions were for the duration and 1 each for a year, 6 months and 60 days. In addition to the $162,116 collected for f o o d violations last year, the following collections were made: Apparel, $646; industrial materials, $18,204; trucks $7,871; autos and tires, $493; fuel, $4,589; consumer durables, $1,693' services, $9,316; and r e n t , $12,079. In. cases.- where, dealers, can' show that their overcharges were not willful and t h a t they took practicable precautions to learn the regulations, they are liable for the exact amount of the overcharge, or $25, whichever la larger. But if the overcharge is found to be willful, the over- charger is liable for 3 times the amount' of the overcharge, or $50, whichever is greater. During the year, the enforcement division emphasized compliance holding an average of 25 compliance conferences d a i l y . Kline said evidence of this emphasis lay in the. fact that there were 97 injunction cases in which judgments were not asked and 52 treble damage actions in which only, damages were recovered. The division also referred, 12 criminal cases involving tires and gasoline, to the respective United States attorneys.
