NOTICES REGARDING MEAT INSPECTION.

APPROVAL OF STENCILS AND DIES.

The approval of imprints or blue prints of box dies and stencils may be accepted as
authority to permit the use of larger dies and stencil., Iprovided that the same style
of letters and arrangement of words are preserved aid that all feature.* are propor-
tionately enlarged. It should be understood, however, that under Inoi circumstances
should the approval of such blueII prints or imprints be accepted as authority to I ernit
the use of dies and stencils smaller than those marked with stamp of approval.

MATERIALS FOR MARKING MEAT AND MEAT FOOD PRODUCTS SUBMITTED FOR
APPROVAL.

It has been difficult and sometimes impossible without further inquiry to determine
the use to be made of materials submitted for approval under the mnat-inspection a:c
for marking meat and meat food products. For in-tance, it is important to di-tinguish
between stencils and box dies, liners and wrappers, and labels and carton materials.
Failure to identify definitely theeo materials and specify the use for which they are
intended causes delay in approval and errors in filing and recording. It is therefore
required that each such material hereafter submitted for approval shall bear a written
name or statement specifying the character of marking which it represents and the
use for which it is intended, in order that this information will be apparent on each
copy to which the bureau stamp of approval is applied.

FIELD INSPECTION, FORM 11C REPORTS.

Reference is made to Service and Regulatory Announcements of April, 1917, pages
40 and 41, headed" Reporting Finding of Animals Affected with Contagious Disease,"
and to Service and Regulatory Announcements of February, 191S, page 11, headed
"Reports Regarding Tuberculosis." Inspectors in charge of stations are urged to
obtain the proper data relative to the origin of shipments of tuberculous cattle and
swine. The bureau considers this very important information in connection wilh its
tuberculosis-eradication campaign. Some inspectors in charge of meat inspection
have demonstrated beyond a doubt that much good can be done by the cooperation
of the different bureau forces in obtaining the necessary informat ion from the packers,
live-stock commission men, and others interested in the industry. This report should
be made in duplicate, the original forwarded to the chief of tihe lIureau and the dupli-
cate to the inspector in charge of tuberculosis eradication in the State where the ship-
ment originated.

50 BUREAU OF ANIMAL INDUSTRY. [April,

INSTRUCTIONS CONCERNING THE TUBERCULIN TESTING OF CATTLE
FOR EXPORT TO COUNTRIES OTHER THAN CANADA.
1. Tuberculin tests applied to cattle for export to countries other than Canada may
be applied either by a veterinary inspector of this bureau or by a veterinarian who is
authorized by the State in which he resides and by this bureau to apply tuberculin
tests to cattle intended for interstate shipment.
2. The regular T. E. Form 15 certificate should be used if the cattle are tested by a
bureau veterinarian, and in other cases the usual State form may be used. Four
copies of the certificate should be prepared, the original to be forwn rded to the bureau,
the duplicate to accompany the shipment, the triplicate to be forwarded to the proper
State official of the State of origin, and the fourth copy to be forwarded to the bureau
inspector in charge at the port of embarkation. The country to which the cattle
are destined and the port in the United States to which the animals are going forward
for embarkation should be indicated on the certificate. If the cattle are from an
accredited herd or a herd in the process of accreditation, the fact should be noted on
the certificate.
3. In case the cattle are tested by a veterinarian other than a bureau inspector, all
four copies of the certificate prepared on the States form together with the affidavit as
indicated in paragraph 4, should be forwarded to the bureau inspector in charge of
tuberculosis-eradication work in the State of origin, who will indorse all four copies.
If the cattle are from an accredited herd or a herd in the process of accreditation, the
fact should be noted on the certificate. The inspector in charge will forward the
original copy to the bureau, the duplicate to the veterinarian who applied the test or
to the owner in order that it may accompany the shipment, the triplicate to the proper
State live-stock sanitary official of the State of origin, and the fourth copy to the
bureau inspector in charge at the port of embarkation. All four copies should plainly
indicate the country to which the cattle are destined, as well as the port in the United
States to which the animals are going forward for embarkation.
4. The owner of the cattle should be required to execute an affidavit aq per form
contained in paragraph 8 of this notice, and the affidla\it lhiouill lie forwarded to the
bureau with the original certificate.
5. Except in the case of cattle from an accredited herd, the tutli.rciilin te-t must be
applied within 60 days of the date of shipment.
6. The foregoing instructions do not apply to shipments of cattle to Canada, but in-
structions covering shipments of cattle for that country will lie found in Service and
Regulatory Announcements for November, 1919, page 12:3.
7. If inspectors in charge of tuberculosis-eradication work know uf any approved
veterinarians in their territory who may apply the tuberculin test to cattle for export
to countries other than Canada, itis requested that they ad \vise them a1 to proper meth-
ods to follow in such cases.
8. The form of affidavit required in connection with the tuberculin testing of rattle
for export is as follows:
"I, ................-, do solemnly swear that any reactors to the tuberculin test
to be made of my cattle for export to .......--............ will e immediately placed
in a satisfactory quarantine and held subject to the laws and regulations of the State in
which tested, and that no animal presented for the test has at any time reacted to
tuberculin or has received any injection of tuberculin within a period of 60 days
preceding the date upon which they are offered for said tuberculin test.

THE GEORGE WASHINGTON MEMORIAL ASSOCIATION.

Mr, ih 'r, rif iIr Di par/l inu t Yiif -. 1/ id tllure:
It is thl plan -if the George Washington Mlemorial Association to erect in Washing-
ton, by, popular subscription, a National Vii ti -u Memorial upon a site which has been
granted by thl,. Cngress.. This builJing, appropriately called "A Temple of Patriot-
ism," will, ii a bru.ad s,..nse, cmmi.mrrateI tllh ~ who have served their country in
earlier wars as well as in the great strugl.'I,- t'l uphold American rights and the civiliza-
tion of lIhe world through whi'h thie Natiiu has just passed. It is designed to be
architecturally impr .Issiv, and, iinanol:c by popular subscription, will be for ages
an enduring testim_.ny that the people of the United States do not forget.
I commend this prijec't to your considerSntilin. The members of the Department
of Agriculture, andi in fact every citizen of the country, has a natural interest in the
proposed building, not, only Ibecause of the sentiment it represents but because it is
to be national in its utility, proviling in the Nation's capital a spacious auditorium
for national gatherings, roinms fr patriotic societies, and Washington headquarters
for the people of each Stale and for housing archives and relics relating to the war.
It is the plan, I understand, to have every star in the service flags throughout the
whole country concret-ly represented by $5 in the building fund.
While no campaign of slicitation fur funds will be conducted in the Department
of Agriculture, any contributions you may be inclined to make toward the erection
(if a memorial may be sent to the chief clerk of the department, who will receipt for
them and transmit them to the proper officer of the Memorial Association.
E. T. MEREDITH,
Secretary of .iri, ul urc.

HAVE YOU THE $24?

A man bought Manhattan Island for $24.
The point of this story is that he had the $24.
There are scores who complain vociferously and frequently that the road to wealth
is always blocked.
Yet when a small opportunity opens up the capital necessary to take advantage
of it is lacking.
Where is the man so poorly paid in the United States to-day that he can not save a
fraction of his earnings?
