SERVICE AND REGULATORY ANNOUNCEMENTS


1929]


PROCEEDINGS UNDER THIE PACKERS AND STOCKYARDS ACT

Docket No. ,m85.-In re J. N. Laird, market agency, Union Stockyards, South
Omaha, Nebr. Notice of inquiry issued March 13, 1929, alleging that the
respondent is insolvent. Under date of March 18, 1929, respondent acknowl-
edged service of the order of inquiry, admitted the truth of the matters and
things therein alleged, and waived a hearing thereon. On Mlarch 29, 1929, the
acting Secretary of Agriculture ordered that the respondent be suspended from
registration as a market agency for one year, with leave during said period to
apply for revocation of this suspension upon a showing satisfactory to the Secre-
tary of A~griculture that he is then solvent.


PUBLIC STOCKYARDS DISCONTINUED

On and after April 1, 1929, the Atlant~a Stock Yards, Atlanta, Ga., will no
longer be designated as public stockyards as defined in paragraph 8, section 1,
regulation 1, B. A. I. Order 309.

FOOT-AND-MOUTH DISEASE ERADICATED

The United States is again free from foot-and-mouth disease. Bureau of
Animal Industry Order No. 316, which became effective on March 18, removed
the quarantine placed upon the limited affected area in California. The out-
break was of the shortest duration and involved the smallest number of premises
of all the outbreaks that have occurred. It also caused the least interference
with agriculture and industry in the surrounding territory.
As a precautionary measure the premises on which t~he disease was found are
being beld under supervision pending t~he outcome of the customary tests. The
bureau is also maintaining a sufficient force of veterinarians in the locality to
deal promptly wit~h any recurrence of this treacherous disease.


ERROR IN REGULATIONS GOVERNING INTERSTATE MOVEMENT OF
LIVESTOCK

In paragraph 120 on page 31 of the booklet Instructions Concerning Work
Under Regulations Governing Interstate M~ovement of Livestock, reference is
made to paragraphs 131 and 1.32, which is an error. That reference should be
to paragraphs 125 and 126.

WORM NODULES ON THE DIAPHRAGM AND BODY WALL OF SHEEP

Recent investigations carried on jointly by the Zoological and M~eat Inspection
Divisions have shown that nodules of parasitic origin are occasionally found
beneath t~he peritoneum of the diaphragm and abdominal wall of ovines. In
many instances the nodules are entirely calcified and do not contain parasites.
In some cases, however, small larval nematodes have been isolated from them,
not more t~han one larva, occurring in a single nodule.
The nodules v'ary considerably in size, those which contain a larva being from
about 1 to 2 millimeters in diameter, more or less spherical in shape, firm in
texture, and grayish white in color. Completely calcified nodules are often
considerably larger. The nodules are not actuially embedded in the muscle
tissue, but occur superficially on the surface of the diaphragm and abdominal
wall underneath the peritoneum. After stripping off the perit.oneum, the
nodules are usually found adhering to it.
In dissecting a nodule which has not yet undergone complete calcification, it
is found to consist of a more or less hardened caseous mass, in which there is
contained a small, spherical, connective-tissue cyst, a little less than one-fifth of
at millimeter in diameter, inclosing a larval worm. The w~orm is more or less
spirally coiled within the cyst and is about one-half of a millimeter long by a
little less than one-twentieth of a millimeter in maximum w~idth. The larval
worms have been identified as those of the nodular worm, Oesophago~stomum1,r
columbianum, and the lesion produced by them is essentially identical w~ith that







32 BURtEAU OF ANIMVAL INDUSTRY [Mdarch,

produced by this worm in the wall of the intestine and on the surface of the liver,
with the exception that the nodules on the diaphragm and abdominal wall, so
far as they have been observed, are smaller than those in other locations.
In the conduct of meat inspection, carcasses of sheep and lambs which show
evidence of infestation with the larval form of Oesopahgoatoomum columabianuma
shall be disposed of in accordance with paragraph 1, section 18, regulation 11 of
B. A. I. Order 211 (revised).


NOTICE CONCERNING SWCINE ITCH

The bureau's attention has been called to the fact that a number of its em-
ployees engaged in meat. inspection have developed from time to time a skin
condition which has been characterized as "swine itch." This condition, which
is said to be associated with post-mortem inspection of hogs, affects especially
the hands between the fingers and is characterized by a reddening and swelling
of the skin followed by vesicular eruptions. The bureau would like to obtain
detailed information from bureau employees who have been affected with "swine
itch in order to determine whether this condition is related to or is identical
with Ascaris sensitization or whether it is a sensitization to some other parasite
of swine. Letters should be addressed to the chief of bureau (attention Zoological
Division) and should include information regarding the number of times that
"swine itch has appeared, the character and development of the lesions, other
symptoms, if any, parts of body affected, duration of symptoms and lesions,
diagnosis and treatment in cases in which a physician was consulted, and any
other pertinent data which might throw light on this condition. It is especially
desired to ascertain whether employees who have been affected with "'swine
itch" have actually been exposed to Ascaris or other parasites either by handling
the worms directly or by handling parts of the carcass in which the parasites were
present. If any employee has developed "swine itch" as a result of post-
mortem work on animals other than swine, a full statement of all the circumstances
of the case should be submitted.


TRAVEL REGULATIONS AMENDED

A new edition of the Standardized Government Travel Regulations, as amended,
effective March 1, 1929, has been issued. Effort has been made to mail to
all individuals and to all stations a number estimated to meet requirements.
Additional copies in quantities to meet actual requirements not correctly esti-
mated byr the W~ashington office may be obtained on regular requisition.
All employees who travel are requested to study carefully P. B. A. Circular
No. 114, dated February 29, 1929, which was published in the Official Record
under date of MIarch 21, 1929. This circular enumerates all changes and ex-
plains wherein the more important ones are different from the original regulattions,
and is intended to make it easy for employees to note the changes.
Attention is also invited to the various appendices, and particularly to
General Regulations No. 36, Supplement No. 1, covered by Appendix VI, which
contains certain rules concerning information to be shown in vouchers for travel
and other expenses.


USE OF TAXICABS BY BUREAU EMPLOYEES

Government Travel Regulations, paragraph 8, permit reimbursement for
"Lthe usual taxicab fares" i n the course of official travel. Employees are informed
that when such charges are claimed each item must be supported by a brief
explanation which will show clearly its necessity.
