Here's a roundup of things lo keep in mind. New and used cars arc under OPA ceilings. If you have doubts about a car's ceilings, ask your local price control board. If you've been overcharged, you can act against Ihe seller llirough your own lawcr or the local price control board. If your lawyer sues, and wins, you can collect three limes Ihc amount of overcharge. The losing seller has lo pay court costs. If OPA handles il, and wins, you gel back Ihc amount of overcharge. The government keeps anything recovered above Ihc overcharge. If OPA prosecutes a seller criminally, he can be fined $5,000 and jailed for one year on each count. Or OPA can have the seller's license suspended one year, if he's a dealer. Or, through a court order, it can seek lo prevent his overcharging anyone else. There are various violations of OPA regulations. 1. Side payments. A seller can't legally sell you a car for Ihc ceiling price — laking lhat much in a chock, say — and then take additional cash on the side. This might keep his records from showing a violation, but it would be a violation. 2. Not allowing 1'easonable value on a trade-in. A person taking your tradcd-in car must allow you a reasonable vatic. Otherwise, he's overcharging on the car he sells you. 3. Requiring a trade-in on a new or used car. A dealer can't compel you to trade in your old ear- before he'll sell you another. (There seems small chance for OPA to hook anyone on this. If charge you're on a dealer's list for a now author!- car but have no lradc-in, you can owned by Charles Hazlelt, Sr., 35, in a bedroom.

By EDWIN SHANKE (For Hal Boyle) Heckingcn, Germany, Aug. !!ii — ,71') — Crown Prince Wilhclm, sun of former Kaiser Wilhclm II and head of the Honcnzollcrn family which once owned amosl limitless csliiles, is looking for a farm where he can selllc down. The Russian land reform in Silesia, Pommcrania and Brandenburg has stripped the Hohen/ol- lerns of all their vast farnis and properties and Icfl them wilh only an 80-room castle, a museum piece balanced on hill five miles from here. "II is loo impraclical lo live in," Ihe crown prince said, and then smilingly added: "A young American officer who visited it, as do many American soldiers, offered to take it off my hands for a good price but I told him there wasn't enough money in the world to buy it." While on the lookout for a farm, possibly in Bavaria, the crown prince is living in a vented villa in this French occupied town, wilh- in sight of his castle called Burg Hohenzollern. About one hundred years old, it is the .third fortified castle built there by the Hohenzol- ierns. Prince Wilhelm said he was concerned about the younger genera•ion of Hohenzollcrns. His wife. Hcrmine, is living with around price ceilings by upgrad- their second son. Prince Louis ing cars.

The crown prince said tha Prince Louis Ferdinand, who once worked for Henry Ford and ha loured the United Stales, has thought aboul Irying to go lo America lo make a new start. Admitting that the question of finances wus a problem now that he had lost his lands, the crown prince snid he intended "to :"ighl hard" for a reimbursement on the estates in eastern Germany which arc beinK parcelled out to peasants under the Russian sponsored land reform — a farming policy which he predicted would not work. "The peasants haven't the capital or the machinery io produce enough to feed the cities as did the old-fashioned, big eslales," he said. "From now on the people working the farms will produce only enough for Ihcmselves." Tho crown prince, who is (53, carries himself erect. His hair now is white and the hot sun of Wucrtlem- bora'has tanned his skin to « leathery brown. He has a minimum of servants around him in his simple house, called "Villa Wolf."
