NOTrICES REGARDING MEAT INSPECTION
OMISSION OF ESTABLISHMENT NUMBER FROM CARTONS
Referring to the provisions of regulation 17, section 2, paragraph 1, B. A. I.
Order 211 (revised), which authorize the omission of the establishment number
from cartons used as containers of oleomargarine, lard, or compound, and the
product in which is immediately inclosed in an approved wrapper bearing *the
inspection legend and establishment number, such provisions are construed to
be applicable also to similar cartons in which sliced bacon, dried beef, and other
meat food products are customarily delivered to consumers.
This ruling does not authorize the omission of the inspection legend from the
cartons. The omission of the establishment number as indicated will necessitate
the reapproval of cartons so prepared for each establishment at which the con-
tainers are to be used. When the cartons are submitted for approval there
should be applied to each a written statement indicating that the product is
placed in approved wrappers bearing the inspection legend and establishment
number, in order that such information may' be apparent on the specimens
which are to bear the stamp of approval.
LABELING PRODUCTS CONTAINING PIMENTO
It has come to the attention of the bureau that some establishments which use
pimiento in the preparation of meat food products refer to such substance as
"pimento." According to standards adopted by the department the term
"Lpimento" is applicable to atllapice while the term "pimiento" is properly used
to designate Spanish paprika or paprika having the characteristics of that grown
in Spain. It is probable that in some instances the presence of pimiento has
been incorrectly declared on labels as "pimento." Inspectors in charge should
investigate this matter at their respective stations and if such inconsistencies are
found information should be promptly forwarded to the W'Zashington. office
indicating the approval numbers of the materials involved, the quantity of such
materials on hand, and the length of time estimated to exhaust the supply.
ANIMAL CASINGS OF FOREIGN ORIGIN
Certificates required by B. A. I. Order 305 and instructions issued thereunder,
which bear the official titles of the high officials of the respective foreign countries
as specified below~, will be acceptable with animal casings offered for importation
into the United States.
The certificates must also bear the signature of the high official of the national
government having jurisdiction over the health of animals in the foreign country
in which the casings originated, but owing to the fact that the high officials are
changed from time to time it is impracticable to publish their names.

108 B~RBAU 'OF ArRIMllAL INDUSTRY [Deeedj~

JOHN T. CAINE REISIGNS

John T. Caine III, for two and one-half years chief of the Packers and,8tock-;
yards Administration, left the Department of Agriculture January la to join the
staff of the International Livestock Expo~sition in Chicago. Announcement 'bF
his resignation was made December 10 by Secretary W. M. Jardine. i'
Mr. Caine resigned because of a desire to return to-the West and to e~stab~lishi
contact again with the production side of the livestock industry, with which his
family has long been connected.
Mr. Caine's fairness, ability, and knowledge of the producing and marketing
sides of the livestock industry have made him particularly valuable to the depart-
ment," commented Secretary Jardine. "' He has accomplished much in creating
confidence in the Packers and Stockyards Administration as an agency of fair
play with reference to both agriculture and business. His new position will
enable him to make a still further contribution to the industry to which he has8
devoted his entire career."
Dr. John R. Mohler, chief of the Bureau of Animal Industry, of which thek
Packers and Stockyards Administration is a division, expressed his regret that
other interests called Mr. Caine away from Washington. "Few men," he said,
"'know the livestock industry as Mr. Caine does, and few men have a greater
faculty for making friends and reconciling conflicting opinions."


DR. J. A. KIERNAN

Dr. John Andrew Kiiernan, of the United States Department of Agriculture,
died at his home, 1213 Michigan Avenue NE., Wlashington, D. C., at 8.20 p. m.,
December 13. As8 chief of the Tuberculosis Eradication Division of the Bureau
of Animal Industry be was widely known among veterinarians, stockmen, and
public officials throughout the country. Although Doctor Kiiernan had been ill
for several weeks, he had visited his office occasionally, and his many associates
were entirely unprepared for the news of his sudden death, caused by heart
affliction with attending complications.

Fifty-four Yeans Old
Born in Jersey City, N. J.! July 27, 1873, Doctor Kiernan showed an early
inclination toward the study of livestock and veterinary medicine. After obtain-
ing the necessary entrance requirements, Doctor Kiiernan attended the New
York College of Vet~erinary Surgeons, from which he graduated in 1895 with the
degree of V. S. He engaged in the practice of veterinary medicine from March,
1895, to November, 1896, after which he entered the Bureau of Animal Industry
of the United States Department of Agriculture.
His early work in the bureau was largely that of Federal meat inspection.
While engaged in this activity in Boston he made the acquaintance of Helen
Cogan, w'ho was performing microscopic work for the detection of trichinae in
pork. Their marriage resulted from this acquaintance.
In 1902 Doctor Kiiernan took an active part in the eradication of foot-and-
mouth disease in the New England States. After the suppression of the outbreak
he was assigned to field duty in the West writh headquarters at Salt Lake City.
Developments in Federal work to eradicate cattle scabies resulted in his assign-
ment to a force engaged in suppressing this serious parasite, his headquarters
being at Aberdeen, 8. Dak. This assignment lasted nearly three years.
Wide Experience in Field Work
As a result of demonstrated ability in conducting field work Doctor Kiernan
was one of the first men to be placed" in charge of a station for the eradication of
cattle ticks in the South. His first assignment as inspector in charge took him
to R~aleigh, N. C., from which he directed tick-eradication work in that State and
in Virginia. Later he wRas assigned to Nashyile, Tenn., from which he directed
similar work in Tennessee, Alabama, and Mississippi.
The experience gained in the activities mentioned made Doctor Kiernan espe-
cially well qualified to accept appointment in 1917 as chief of the Tubereulosis
Eradication Division, which had been formed to suppress this disease amhon~g
livestock, in cooperation with the various States. From a small beginning that
division has become one of th'e most important branches of the Bureau of Animal

Industry, and has rendered a conspicuous service not only to the livestock indus-
try but to public health.
The extensive campaign of tuberculin testing conducted under Doctor KEier-
nan's bluida~nce was acompnaniedr by higrhly: effect~ive edcatPR ional ork.r Soon
the demand for tuberculin testing beca me greater than the facilities for conducting
the work. As a consequence there has been for many years a waiting list., in
most States, of cattle owners w~ho have requested that their herds be tuberculin
tested. Although more than 4'2,000,000 cattle have been tested since the begin-
ning of the cooperative camf~aign as the result of liberal appropriations and a
large field force of Federal and State vet~erinarians, t~he demand for official test-
ing has never been fully met.. Monthly reports show t.he steady progress of the
work, however, and more than a million reactors have been detected. The
removal and slaughter of these diseased animals have added greatly to the safety
of the country's milk supply. In addition, it has removed a great menace to
the health of other cattle and to that of swine and poultry, which also are suscep-
tible to tuberculous infection.
Although standing out., during his entire career, as a leader, Doctor Kiiernan
w~as always generous in dealing with others. He encouraged subordinates to
take responsibility and assume leadership.
He took an active part in the affairs orf the Amuerican \'eterinary Medical
Association and of the United States Livestock S~anitary Association. In both
of these organizations he w~as recognized as an authority on problems of tuberculo-
sis eradication and served on important committees and in other official capacities.
Besides professional qualifications in \eterinary medicine, pathology, and surgery,
Doctor Kiiernan w~as an effective public speaker. An earnest. style olf delivery
did much to win support for the work which he sponsored. He w~as also a clear
and forceful writer and w~as greatly interested in the use of motion pictures,
exhibits, posters, and other visual means of suipplemienting the spoken and
written word. A genial and friendly personality made w~armi friends of hiis
associates.
Doctor Kiiernaiin ws proficient in ou~t~doror sports and exc-elled inl row~ing, sw~im-
ing, and baseball. He leave a w~ife, H-elen Cogani Kiernan, and three sons,
John, Paul, and Joseph. the eldest of whom is 18. Music, religious training, and
close companionship w~ith his family were implortant elements of hiis home life.
Dr. John R. Alohler, chief of bureau, paid high tribute to Doctor Kiiernan as a
capable executive, a veterinarian of high professional attainments, and a man
whose personality and leadership inspired th-e best efforts of those under his
direction and associated w~ith him.
