NOTICES REGARDING MEAT INSPECTION.
MARKING MEAT AND MEAT FOOD PRODUCTS INSPECTED AND FOUND TO CONFORM
TO THE NAVY SPECIFICATIONS.

Referring to Amendment 11 to B. A. I. Order 211, a special mark composed of the
letters U. S. N. within a shield was adopted for use in the meat-inspection service in
cooperation with the United States Navy as the mark to be placed upon containers of
meat and products to identify these products inspected by bureau inspectors and found
to conform to the Navy specifications. Some time ago it was brought to the attention
of the bureau that. this mark had appeared upon products offered to the Navy which
did not meet the Navy specifications, this being done with the apparent intention of
misrepresentation. Under the regulations which were then effective there was no

way of prohibiting the unauthorized use of this mark or of punishing unscrupulous
persons who falsely applied it. The amendment was therefore issued for the purpose
of describing this special mark and designating its use, thereby placing the mark under
the protection of section 9 of the act.
The Paymaster General of the Na\vy states that it is the desire of that department
that this mark shall not be used as contemplated in the amendment, but that in lieu
thereof the use of the mark containing the letters U. S. N., the number of the inspector,
the date, and the city in which the meat was prepared be continued for the present.
Inspectors will please be governed accordingly.
METTWL'RST CLASSED AS A PORK PRODUCT CONSUMED WITHOUT COOKING.
Inasmuch as products known as "Mettwurst" resemble sausages of kinds prepared
customarily to be eaten without cooking, and, in fact, are known frequently to be
consumed without cooking, it is directed that all mettwurst manufactured in official
establishments, if it contains any muscle tissue of pork, shall be prepared in accordance
with the methods prescribed by the bureau for the preparation of pork products
customarily eaten without cooking.
SAMPLES OF VEGETABLE OILS FOR LABORATORY EXAMINATION.
Samples of vegetable oils submitted by inspectors in charge of meat inspection for
labor tory examination should, as a rule, represent the oil in the condition in which
it is to be used as an ingredient of meat food products. When the oils are used in the
form in which they are received at the establishment samples may be taken at the
time of receipt or at any time prior to use. When oils are received in a crude or
partially refined condition and are subsequently refined, bleached, or deodorized,
samples should not be taken until fully prepared for use unless circumstances or
conditions should be such as to make sampling at an earlier stage advisable. When-
ever the samples submitted do not represent the oil in the finished condition in which
it is to be used as an ingredient of meat food products, the laboratory should be fully
informed as to the stage of process at which the sample was taken and as to the
information desired.

INSPECTION AND TESTING OF ANIMALS FOR CANADA.

The following changes have been made in the list of practicing veterinarians regis-
tered by the bureau and authorized to inspect and test with mallein horses, mules,
and asses intended for export to Canada:
Names Added to List.
Dr. J. H. McNeil, Trenton, N. J.
Dr. C. C. Wright, Stayton, Oreg.
Change in Address.
Dr. M. B. Purdy, from Choteau, Mont., to Perham, Minn.


REGULATIONS GOVERNING THE INSPECTION, HUMANE HANDLING,
AND SAFE TRANSPORT OF EXPORT ANIMALS.
Amendment 1 to B. A. I. Order 2(;4, "Regulations Governing the Inspection,
Humane Handling, and Safe Transport of Export Animals," effective November 1,
1919, so amends Regulation 4 of that order as to provide for the tuberculin testing of
cattle by a veterinarian authorized by the State of origin and approved by the bureau.
This will not apply to dairy and breeding cattle for export to Canada, as the Canadian
regulations require that a satisfactory tuberculin-test chart, dated not more than 60
days prior to the date of entry, by a veterinarian of the United States Bureau of Ani-
mal Industry, accompany such cattle.


CERTIFICATES TO ACCOMPANY CATTLE FOR SHIPMENT TO CANADA
FROM TUBERCULOSIS-FREE ACCREDITED HERDS.
In connection with the shipment to Canada of cattle from tuberculosis-free ac-
credited herds in the United States, attention is especially directed to that portion
of Amendment 1 to B. A. I. Order 266 having reference to the certification of such
cattle.
A similar provision has been made by the Canadian authorities for the acceptance
of cattle from tuberculosis-free accredited herds in the United States, and in order to
avoid the multiplication of certificates in these cases it has been decided to continue
the use of the customary certificates issued for export dairy and breeding cattle, forms
Q. D. 16 and Q. D. 17. Accordingly when cattle from an accredited herd are for-
warded.to Canada such certificates are to be used with a notation over the signature
of the bureau inspector on each certificate to the effect that the cattle are from a
tuberculosis-free accredited herd. The inspector should also indicate in connection
with such notation the herd certificate number.
Certificates as described above are to be indorsed only by bureau inspectors whose
names have been placed on file with the Canadian Veterinary Director General, in
accordance with instructions which appeared in Service and Regulatory Announce-
ments for March, 1919, page 20.

CERTIFICATES TO ACCOMPANY SHEEP FOR SHIPMENT TO CANADA
FROM THE STATES OF IDAHO AND WYOMING.
Attention of inspectors in charge is directed to the last paragraph of instructions re-
garding certificates and reports of tests of animals for export to Canada, appearing in
Service and Regulatory Announcements for March, 1919, page 21. Under date of
November 11, 1919, an amendment to Canadian ministerial order No. 40 was issued,
striking out the words "Idaho" and "Wyoming" in the first paragraph of section 3 of

said order. As a result of that amendment, importations of sheep for any purpose
other than immediate slaughter from the States of Idaho and Wyoming will be sub-
ject to quarantine for 30 days at the boundary unless they are accompanied by a
bureau certificate showing that they have been dipped twice in one of the prepara-
tions approved liv the bureau.

Memorandum No. 296 of the office of the Secretary amends paragraph 89 of the
Fiscal Regulations to read as follows:
"8O. Custody and use of transportation requests; extra fares.--Transportation requests
willbe obtained by the bureaus from the Oficeof Inspection, which office shall require
a receipt therefore from an appropriate administrative officer of the bureau indicating
the serial numbers of the requests and the fiscal year applicable. Administrative
officers of bureaus charged with the custody of transportation requests shall require a
like receipt when furnishing such requests for the use of persons authorized to travel
upon the business of the department over the lines of any transportation company.
Each officer or employee shall be charged .-ith the requests received by him or placed
in his custody, shall safeguard them the same as cash, account for them in accordance
with these regulations, and be held responsiblle for the loss thereof and chargeable
with the amount which may be required to be paid by the United States because of
any improper use of the same.
All transportation requests remaining unused in the possession of employees at the
close of each fiscal year must be returned to the bureau issuing same, and after such
bureau has made a proper record of these requests, they shall be forwarded to the
Office of Inspection for record and cancellation.
Transportation requests shall be presented by the traveler to the proper transporta-
tion companies in exchange for tickets, mileage or scrip books. Separate requests
will be used for parlor, chair or sleeping car accommodations. Transportation requests
should be used for all travel upon business of the department where the fare involved
is $1 or more, except as provided in paragraph 86 iv I. In case of refusal to accept a
transportation request by the agent of any transportation company, the fact and any
attending circumstances should be reported to the chief of bureau. Transportation
requests drawn on one appropriation must not be used for travel chargeable to another
appropriation. Transportation Requests must not be used to cover extra fares on
limited trains or deviations from direct routes of travel in connection with leave of
absence or other personal business. Such extra fares must be paid in cash."
In the future the bureau will require a receipt for each issue of Government
transportation requests. Inspectors and others in charge carrying a supply of transpor-
tation requests for issue to employees traveling under their supervision will likewise
require receipts. In such cases the receipts may be kept in the station files.

AMENDMENT TO CIVIL-SERVICE REGULATIONS REGARDING.MILITARY
PREFERENCE TO UNSKILLED LABORERS.
Section 2 of Regulation III of regulations governing appointments of mere unskilled
laborers outside of Washington, D. C., has been amended to read as follows:
'"Sec. 2. Upon completion of the physical examinations the board shall enter
upon registers, by sex, the names of applicants rated at 85 or more in the order of their
ratings except that honorably discharged soldiers, sailors, and marines, their widows,
and the wives of soldiers, sailors, and marines disqualified by injuries received in
service and line of duty, rated at 85 or more, shall have priority. "
This amendment has been issued to give effect to the provision of the deficiency
act of July 11, 1919, which bases preference on military service instead of disability
incurred in the service and line of duty.


OFFICIAL PURCHASE OF WEARING APPAREL PROHIBITED.
In accordance with a decision of the Comptroller of the Treasury, dated October 27,
1919, it will be impossible in the future for the bureau to approve for payment vouchers
covering the purchase of personal furnishings," i. e., a necessary part of the wearing
apparel of .tilice;s or employees, in the absence of express authority of law therefore.
As there is at present no express authority in law for the purchase, by this bureau,
of personal furnishings or wearing apparel of any kind, inspectors in charge and others
will be governed accordingly.

CALENDARS AND POSTERS OF OTHER EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENTS.

The bureau has arranged with the Navy, War, and Treasury Departments to dis-
tribute to its field offices calendars, posters, and posterettes to encourage the purchase
of War Saving Stamps and enlistment in the Army, Navy, and Marine Corps. These
calendars, posters, and posterettes will be sent to field officers by mail or with monthly
shipments of supplies. It is desired that they be given conspicuous display. Field
offices receiving a number of these calendars, etc., should see that the surplus is sent
to su -stations.
Many of these calendars and posters are works of art, and if properly displayed will
add tu the appearance of field offices.
