D)EMODECTIC MANGE
With reference to bureau circular letter entitled Directions for Detecting
Demodectic MIange in Livestock," dated December, 1926, the bureau desires to
continue the inspections of live animals, especially cattle and hogs, for lesions
of demodectic mange and to receive reports from all field and stockyard stations
as outlined in the above-mentioned circular.
Diligent efforts should be made to cooperate in this undertaking, but the
work should be conducted in such way as not to interfere seriously with the
performance of the regular assignments on which employees are engaged.
Up to this time cases in live cattle have been reported from 14 States.
The fact that the lesions usually are small and the infected animals show no
pronounced symptoms may be responsible for the failure of inspectors in some
instances to have detected this affection in cattle, thus accounting for negative
reports from a number of Stattes in whiob there is good reason to believe that the
disease exists. Except in advanced cases, when the disease has progressed to a
stage where several nodules have coalesced and are discharging their contents, the
lesions of demodectic mange are not similar to those of other kinds of mange or
scabies. Ordinarily the lesions consist of small nodules in the skin, and they
may or may not be superficiaqlly visible. The position of the hair over the lesion
often indicates t~o the trained eye the' presence of nodules. The only known
dependable method of detection, however, is careful manual examination.
Practically all the cases found so far were in aged dairy cows, mostly Jerseys.
A few cases have been found in yearling heifers of the dairy breeds. The inci-
dence of the disease may be greater in the dairy breeds than in the beef breeds,
but a possible explanation is that since milk cows are accustomed to being
handled they can usually be examined in pens without additional restraint.
In almost all cases the lesions have been found on the sides of the neck, shoul-
ders, and dewlap. The flanks, sides, abdomen, and udder are sometimes in-
volved. The size of the nodules vlaries from t~hat of a pinhead to that of a hazel-
nut. As a rule they are not visible until the hair is parted over lesions located
by manual examination.
In hogs the lesions are similar to those in cattle. The lesions usually occur
on the underpart of the neck, breast, and abdomen, and between the thighs.
Gentle animals and those restrained for testing, etc., should be given a manual
examination as conditions will permit. When inspectors become experienced,
the examinations can be made very rapidly and the sense of touch readily
becomes developed so that few nodules escape detection. By passing the hand
over the hair with the fingers pressed firmly against the skin, nodules, if present,
can be detected by t~he sense of feeling. The neck, shoulders, breast, and dew-
lap should be palpated, and also any other suspected areas. The dewlap and
the groove at the union of the neck and shoulder deserve special attention. The
lesions in hogs are visible when the infected areas are exposed to view.
Positive diagnosis canl be made only by demonstrating the mite. By pressing
or scraping out the contents of one or more nodules, pressing a small quantity
between two slides and examining under a low-power microscope, the mites, if
present, can easily be recognized. (See Hutyra and Mrarek, vol. 2, p. 1049.)
If microscope and facilities are not available, material should be sent to the
Zoological Division for examination.
W'hen infected cattle are found in a herd, ascertain if possible and report the
length of time the animal has been in the herd.
It is suggested that whenever it is convenient to demonstrate cases of demol
dectic mange in cattle to interested veterinarians, especially men with a cattle
practice or members of a State force or State college, it should be done as an
educational measure.








SERVICE AND REGULATORY ANNOUNCEMENTS


1927]


USE OF THIE FRANKC
The attention of bureau employees is called to the law of Mlarch 3, 1877,
section 5 of which reads in part as follows:
It shall be lawful to transmit through the mail, free of postage, any letters, packages, or other matter
relating exclusively to the business of the Government of the United States **
This law was amended on March 3, 1879, so as to extend to officers of the Gov-
ernment.
By the terms of these laws, therefore, the use of the penalty privilege is abso-
lutely restricted to officers of the United States Government solely for the purpose
of transmitting in the mails free of postage matters relating exclusively to the
business of the Government. Bureau employees who are engaged in work in
cooperation with State authorities or other agencies are entitled to exercise the
penalty privilege onlyr in connection with that part of their work which is per-
formed in their capacity as officers of the Government. Such employees may
not use penalty envelopes, cards, or labels to send in the mail free of postage
matter sent in pursuance of their duties as employees of the States, colleges, or
other agencies wit~h which the bureau is cooperating. The fact that the bureau is
cooperating in a project with outside agencies does not give bureau employees
or such cooperating agencies the right to use the department penalty envelope
for the mailing of matter issued by such outside agencies.
In case there is doubt as to the franking of any matter, the question should be
submitted to the Washington office for determiDRtoOD.


RESULTS OF PROSECUTIONS FOR VIOLATIONS OF LAWS
Penalties and fines have been imposed in prosecutions for violations of regu-
latory laws, as reported to the bureau, as follows:
