ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS CONCERNING DISPOSITION OF CARCASSES ON ACCOUNT
OF HOG CHOLERA
In disposing of certain carcasses on account of hog cholera, the following addi-
tional instructions shall be observed:
Inconclusive but suspicious symptoms of hog cholera observed during the ante-
mortem inspection shall be duly considered in connection with post-mortem find-
ings and when the carcass of such a "suspect" shows lesions in the kidneys and
the lymph glands which resemble lesions of hog cholera, they shall be regarded as
those of hog cholera and the carcass shall be passed for cooking.
When a hog which on ante-mortem inspection showed no symptoms of hog chol-
-era, but on post-mortem shows lesions in the kidneys and lymph glands which
resemble lesions of hog cholera and in addition shows slight and limited lesions of
hog cholera in one other organ or tissue, the carcass shall be passed for cooking.
A careful ante-mortem inspection shall be made of all lots of hogs in which
animals are observed showing positive or suspicious symptoms of hog cholera.
The symptoms of each animal marked as a "suspect" shall be recorded descrip-
tively on M~. I. Form 119-A for appropriate evaluation by the veterinarian making
final disposition of the carcass.








April, 1981] BIERVICE AND REGULATORY ANNOUNCEM~ENTSJ 37

INSTRUCTIONS CONCERNING SERVICE BY EMPLOYEES ENGAGED IN MEAT:"
INSPECTION

The attention of inspectors in charge of meat inspection and others is directed
to the following order of the Secretary:
APRIL 7, 1931.

Revocation of regulation governing overtime on meat inspection

Under authority of the act of July 24, 1919 (41 Stat. 241), the regulation gov-
erning payments for overtime work performed at establishments subject to the
provisions of the meat inspection act of June 30, 1906, issued under date of Jan-
nary 29, 1930, is hereby revoked, effective April 1, 1931.
(Signed) AnnesR M\. BYDE, SBCT&#Gry.
The revocation of the regulation above cited, in effect, discontinues the pay-
ment by the department to employees for overtime work. Therefore, the inl
structions in circular letter 1644 w~ill not apply to services rendered on or after
April 1, 1931. Rolls for overtime service subsequent to April 1 shall be dis-
continued. Those for overtime service rendered previous to April 1 should be
forwarded to the bureau at an early date.
This action is necessary on account of the act of Congress approved March 8,
1931, which provides that four hours, exclusive of time for luncheon, shall con-
stitute a day's work on Saturdays, and the administrative requirement, that there
shall be no increase in the cost of inspection. Therefore, the arrangement for a
stated number of hours work other than specified by law must be abandoned.
Inspectors in charge as far as may be practicable and with due regard for the
efficiency of the service will arrange assignments that the duties required will be
distributed in an equitable manner.
Attention is also directed to Secretary's Mlemorandum No. 612 published in
the Official Record of M~arch 14, 1931, providing for a 4-hour work day on Satur-
days. Its instructions should be carefully followed.
An employee required to perform service on Saturday in excess of four hours
shall be allowed equivalent time off on some work day when operations in official
establishments or other duties do not require the employee's presence, or when
relief can be furnished by another employee. In this connection the services of
veterinarians may be utilized for relief of either veterinarians or lay inspectors
and lay inspectors will relieve lay inspectors in any of their assignments. In
many instances it will be necessary that inspectors assigned to establishments or
departments of an establishment operating short hours be required to perform
some-work in departments operating long ours in order that all employees may
be given the time allowance as required by law.
When short hours of operation for some assignments are not suffcient to pro-
vide the necessary time allowance, then it must be provided by relieving the
employee from duty at a time when his services can best be spared.
At stations where time allowance for service in excess of four hours on Saturday
can be taken only when a relief employee from another force is provided, the
matter should be made the subject of a letter to the Washington offce.
Care should be taken to inform employees in advance of the manner in which
the time allowance for excess hours of service on Saturday is granted and the
amount of time allowed.
