NOTICES REGARDING MIEAT INSPECTION

APPROVAL, OF CLOTH CONTAINERS

The approval of printed matter on cloth containers may be accepted as au-
thority for the use of proportionate enlargements. Rulings obviating the neces-
sity of individual approval in cases involving merely dissimilarity in figures
or qualifications pertaining to statement of quantity are equally applicable to
cloth containers.
APPROVAL OF INSERTS

Referring to ~egrulation 17, section 2, paragraph ,3, B. A. I. Order 211 (re-
vised),, relative to the approval of inserts, the term insert as therein used
is intended to included only materials bearing direct reference to the meat or
products which they accompany. Accordlingly, no specific approval is re-
quired of inserts bearing: no reference to meat or meat food products or those
which advertise meat or meat food products in general and which probably
will not be construed as pertaining specifically to the accompanying product. If
a proposed insert bears any statement pertaining to meat or meat food products
which is false or misleading, or in case of doubt as to the scope of this ruling
in relation to any particular insert, a copy of the insert should be submitted
to the W'ashington office for a specific ruling, pending which its distribution
in containers of meat or meat food products should be deferred.
Materials bearing copies or reproductions of the inspection legend must be
approved in accordance with the specific terms of the regulations.

INSPECTION OF SWINE FOR EXPORT

Instruction for the inspection of swine for shipment to Canada appeared in
Service and Regulatory Announcements for February, 1920, and in that pub-
lication for August, 1923, there was a notice concerning requirements for the
importation of hogs into Argentina. Directions for the guidance of inspectors
using Q. D. Forms 55 and 55-A were published in Service and Regulatory
Announcements for July, 1919.
F. I. Form 3,5-C has now been issued to replace Form Q. D. 55--A. Inspee-
tors having on hand copies of the Q. D. form should destroy them and obtain
as required a supply of the new form.
Forms Q. D. 55j and F. I. 25i-C are to be used only by bureau inspectors. If
a certificate is issuied under provisions of paragraph (c), section 42, of Cana-
dian regulations by a State veterinarian it should be on a State form.
F. I. 35-C is to be used for buorean certification of double-treated swine' under
provisions of the Caniadian regulations or to meet requirements of the Argen-
tine Government, andi in the latter case an additional certificate may be fur-
nished in typewritten form on bureau letterhead covering immunization of the
swine.
For countries of South America other than Argentina a bureau certifle~ate as
required for shipments to C~anada will be furnished unless otherwise desired
by the consul in the United States representing the receiving government.

RETIREMENT FUND

Employees may wonder what becomes of the 25; per cent which is deducted
from their salaries each pay day. This money is placed in the United States
Treasury to the credit of the retirement fund. Every cent that is taken from
their salaries for this fund is paid back to employees, no matter what
happens. If an employee quits the service, he gets back all be has paid in,
with interest at 4 per cent, compounded annually. If he dies while in the
service, his estate is paid this money. If he retires, he gets an annuity, paid
monthly, for the rest of his life. Should he die after retirement but before
he has received a sum equal to that which he has paid in, with interest, the
balance which remains to his credit will be paid to his estate. Thus no em-
ployee contributes to the annuities of other employees. The money an employee
pays in belongs to him and so remains until it is paid back.
If an employee is fortunate enough to survive his retirement for several
years, it is; obvious that the amount he has paid in--since the law has been in
operation less than five yearse--will not cover the monthly annuity payments
due him. In this case the Government makes up the difference. This is the
Government's contribution to the plan. Thus it; is incorrect to say that the
Government is paying no part of the ex-penses of retirement or that an employee
loses any of the money retained from his salary for the retirement fund.
It may be interesting to know that during the fiscal year 1924 the retirement
fund paid out in annuities, in round figures, $5,692,000 and refunded $2,864,000.
The balance in the fund at the end of the year was $33,586,000, and there
were 10,548 annuitants on the roll. It cost $65,996 to administer the act, this
amount being appropriated by Congress.

appointed by the Secretary, and the rate of compensation, if any, will be
specified. In no circumstances will an appointment be issued the compensa-
tion under which is payable from the contingent fund of the department, nor
will an appointment be issued under any appropriation for service in the
District of Columbia unless such appropriation contains specific authority for
employment in the District of Columbia. ALn oath of oflice 1 must be executed
and filed with the bureau before the first payment of salary will be made' in
all cases of original appointment. After having subscribed to the oath of office
an employee will not be required to renew such oath because of any change
in status so long as his services are continuous, unless, in the opinion of the
Secretary, the public interests require such renewal."
There was recently enacted into law "A~n act to empower certain officers,
agents, or employees of the Department of Agriculture to administer and take
oaths, affirmations, and affidavits in certain cases, and for other purposes,"
approved January 31, 1925 (Public, No. 356, 68th Congress), and the above
paragraphs are modified so that the regulations may conform with existing
law. In addition to empowering certain employees to administer oaths
(covered by paragraph 14 of the Fiscal Regulations), the law also provides
*that employees who upon original appointment have subscribed to the oath of
office shall not be required to renew said oath because of change in status
so long as the services are continuous (paragraph 15, Fiscal Regulations).
