carcasses having slight lesions in the cervical glands only, (b) carcasses hav-
ing slight lesions in- the mesenteric glands only, and (c) carcasses having slight
lesions in the cervical and mesenteric glands only.

directly to the inspector in charge, who shall retain them in his possession and
supply them to the establishment as needed. Settlement for the labels will be

Note.-With reference to the clause, "laundry to be included in subsistence
expenses for the date on which paid" section (h) of the above it should be
understood that the comptroller has ruled in cases where a hotel includes a
laundry charge in its bill that the charge should be added to the subsistence
expense of the day on which the laundry was delivered to the hotel as shown
by laundry slips and not to the day on which the employee settled his hotel bill.

AMENDMENTS TO THE PROPERTY REGULATIONS.
lemnoraniidutn No. 322 of the office of the Secretary, dated August 7, 1920,
reads as follows:
Articles of public property heretofore regarded as nonexpendable only when
costing mnre than 25 cents will herenfter be regarded as nonexpendable only
when costing over 50 cents, if intended for use in Washington, or over $1 if
intended for ne. in the field. These articles are marked with an asterisk in
Appendix B of the Property Regulations of the department, which appendix
is amended accordingly.
SALE OR OTHER DISPOSITION OF PROPERTY.
By memorandum No. 323 of the office of the Secretary, dated August 10. 1920,
paragraph 9 of the Property Regulations is amended to rend as follows:
9. Sale or other di..position of property in general.-Articles for which the
department has no further use and articles which have become unserviceable
will be submitted to a hoard of survey for sale or other disposition. In Wash-
ingtoln such articles will be submitted to the department board of survey. For
BUREAU OF ANIMAL INDUSTRY.
action concerning such articles outside of Washington special boards of survey
will be appointed upon recommendation of the chief of bureau. Recommenda-
tions for the appointment of special boards of survey shall be supported by
desrrilitions of the articles to be disposed of, together with statements of the
specific reasons therefore.
When any board of survey has decided that articles shall be sold, the sale
will be advertised by notifying interested parties by letter, circular, or poster.
No expense will be allowed for advertising in newspapers except by specific
written authority of the Secretary. When property has been sold the board
of survey will pay all expenses, take receipts therefore. and remit the net
proceeds by postal money order, bank draft, or cash to the disbursing clerk of
the department or appropriate fiscal agent, to be deposited in the Treasury to
the credit of miscellaneous receipts. No department property shall be disposed
of by private sale unless the Secretary shall so direct.
The Forester and the Chief of the Bureau of Public Roads are authorized to
sell at field stations of the Forest Service and the Bureau of Public Roads,
after public notice, by advertisement or otherwise, in like manner and subject
to the same restrictions as herein prescribed for boards of survey, such articles
of equipment as are worn out or damaged beyond repair, or which are of no
further use in the service, but have a sale value estimated at $500 or less. The
Forester and the Chief of the Bureau of Public Roads may delegate this au-
thority to district foresters and district engineers, respectively. This authority
may also be delegated by the Chief of the Bureau of Public Roads to the Chief
of the Equipment Division of that bureau.
It shall be the duty of each board of survey to see to the destruction of all
property which it has condemned and ordered to be destroyed. At least one
member of the board shall be present when the property is destroyed, and when
proper destruction has been effected, shall make and submit to the Secretary
a certificate to that effect.
The transfer of property in the field from one branch of a bureau to another
shall be made only upon the approval of the chief of bureau.
The transfer of property in the field from one bureau to another shall be
made only upon the approval of the Secretary.
The sale of property in the field by one bureau to another is prohibited. (See
USE OF TRANSPORTATION REQUESTS.
The bureau is in receipt of a memorandum under date of August 10 from
the Secretary's office relative to the use of transportation requests in securing
sleeping and parlor-car accommodations, reading as follows:
On April 1, 1919, transportation companies generally issued the following
instructions governing the exchange of Government transportation requests
for sleeping and parlor-car accommodations:
"Transportation requests may be presented to ticket agents and the accommo-
dations called for by the requests, when available,,will be reserved and entered
on the request.
The ticket agent will indicate on the request, in the space provided for show-
ing the form and number of passage ticket, the specific space to be furnished,
that is, berth or seat number, car number, train time, and unless already
shown by the request, the name of the initial road. Proper notation will then
be made by the ticket agent on his office diagram, and the request returned to
the holder for surrender to the first Pullman conductor.
If, after a reservation has been made, the trip is abandoned, the ticket agent
should be notified immediately so that the space can be released. It will be per-
missible, if the request is returned to the ticket agent before departure of the
train, for him to erase the reservation from his diagram and the request, and
enter a new reservation thereon.
"All transportation requests will be lifted by the initial sleeping or parlor-car
conductor, who will provide transfer checks where necessary."
Although these rules have been in operation for more than a year, many of
our travelers still seem to find them confusing. It is therefore suggested that
the accounting officers of the several bureaus of this department bring these

invited to the facts that-
1. The ticket agent will enter on the transportation request the reservation
2. The transportation request is not to be surrendered to the ticket agent, but
to the Pullman conductor.
3. When through travel is involved, the transportation reqmllst should be nade
out for through accomniodations, without reinrd to the number of roads involved
or definite reservation beyond the first transfer point. The rules of the Pull-
man lines are clear in providing for the acceptance of through tr;aniiportatini.
requests inil the issuance by the first Pullman conductor of a transfer check to
the connecting line.
PARLOR AND SLEEPING-CAR FARES.
The procedure adopted by the several passenger associations in connection
with -the surcharge on transportation in parlor and sleeping cars which the
Interstate Commerce Commission has granted the railro,:lads. effective Auigu-t
26, 1920, is as follows:
Surcharges will be collected by the agent from whom the pin hlor or .-leeping-
car accommodations are procured and at the time they are lprocured. Govern-
ment tran sportation requests drawn for parlor or sl,.,iing-,.ar .p.ji- will be
presumed to cover the surchalr-e. Sp;.ae will be assigned and bills rendered
against the Government by Pullman or other parlor or sleeping-car companies
accordingly. -The surcharge applies on the space occupied regardless of the
number of occupants.
