USE OF MAILS FOR TRANSPORTATION OF BIOLOGICAL PRODUCTS

The department on September 4, 1930, addressed a letter to the Postmaster
General, Washington, D. C., as follows:
I have the honor to bring to your attention a copy of the virus-sernm-toshn act (37 Stat. 832),approved
1liarch 4, 1913, the text of which will be found in inclosed B. A. I. Order No. 276, which deals with the
preparation, transportation, and importation of viruses, serums, toxins, and analogous products intended
for use in the treatment of domestic animals. The act prohibits the importation of such products unless the
Importer holds a permit from this department.
It has come to our attention that these products, and for which no permit has been issued, are occasionally
received in this country through the mails. Since they are potentially dangerous, and therefore may be
the means of introducing diseases nonexistent in the United States, this department will very much appre-
ciate any action that may be taken by your department, with the view of better controlling the importation
of viruses, serums, toxins, or analogous products latended for use in the t reat ment of domestic animals.
Mray I suggest that whenever a postmaster receives a package containing any of these products or cultures
or organisms used in their preparation the matter be brought to the attention of a local inspector of the
United States Bureau of Animal Industry, if there be any with whom he may communicate; and, if not,
that the matter be brought to the attention of this office?
Under date of September 10, 1930, the Second Assist~ant Postmaster General
replied as follows:
The Postmaster General has asked me to acknowledge your letter of September 4 relative to transporta-
tion in the mails of certain products which violate the virus-serum-toxin act of M~arc~h 4, 1913. The matter
will have attention, and postmasters will be instructed to report the receipt of mails containing the pro-
hibited articles as outlined in the last paragraph of your letter.
Inspectors in charge are instructed to assist postmasters in whatever manner
seems required by local conditions w~ith the view of preventing importations of
veterinary biologic products in any manner except by an importer holding a
permit from the Secretary, as required by the virus-serum-toxin law (37 Stast.
832). All irregularities in this respect should be brought to the attention of the
bureau before disposal of the products has been made.


PERMITTED DISINFECTANT

In accordance with the provisions of B. A. I. Order 309, governing the inter-
atate movement of livestock, the bureau has granted permission to Barker, Moore
& Mein Co., of Philadelphia, Pa., for the distribution and use of "Sherwin-
Williams 50%/ Cresol Solution," under the name of "' Barker's Saponified Cresol







19301 SERVICE AND REGULATORY' ANNOUNCEMENTS 81

Solution in the general disinfection of cars, yards, and other premises. Barker's
saponified cresol solution is identical with Sherwin-Williamns 50 per cent cresol
solution, manufactured by the Sherw~in-Williams Co., of Chicago, Ill.


CALENDARS FOR 1931
Officers in charge and individuals reporting direct to Wanshington w~ill please
indicate in their stores requisitions for December I orders for the wall calendars
that they will require for thie year 1931. One wall calendar should be sufficient
for each room occupied as office or laboratory, and orders should be for minimum
number.
The bureau has discontinued the purchase of desk-calendar pads and stands for
field stations. H-owever, stations now equipped with such stands may procure
pads for the same for 1931 by ordering on their stores requisitions for Decemiber 1
the number required, indicating the make of the stand for which intended--that
is, whether Gemn, Handy, Daily, etc. These calendars and pads muay not be
forwarded w~ith the other supplies ordered on such requisit ions, but an effort will
be made to get theml to t~he stations before tihe first of thle new~ year.
In this connection attention is called to t~he notice headed Adver~t;ing matter
not allow-ed in Governlment offices,"! In Serv-ice and Regulatory Announc~iemets
