NOTICES REGARDING MEAT INSPECTION
LABELS ON SAUSAGE
In view of the diffculty experienced in securely affixing band labels to sau- I
sage, such labels should not bear the inspection legend. H~owever, band labels I
securely pasted on wrappers on sausage may bear the inspection legend. Estab-
lishments having on hand band labels which bear the inspection legend and
which have been applied direct to sausage may continue this practice for a rea-
sonable period, in order to afford an opportunity for the use of supplies on hand.
In such cases information should be furnished through the inspector in charge i
concerning the approval numbers assigned to such labels, the quantity on hand,
and the length of time estimated to exhaust the supply. It should be under-
stood that the labels must be securely affixed and that this may~ involve the 5
application of the labels to the easing by means of an adhesive in cases where
the labels are affixed to sausage which may be expected to undergo appreelable
shrinkage following its removal from the establishment. It has been determined '
that band labels become readily detached when applied to sausage previous to
the normal shrinkage of the product.
INEDIBLE-PRODUCT CERTIFICATE
The inedible-product export certificate for bladders, boofs, horns, grease, and
similar inedible animal products other thanl casings has been printed in the form
indicated in Cirethlar Letter No. 1379 and is now available for distribution.
Inspectors in charge who have need for this certificate should make requisition
for the new form and destroy the old certificates when the new ones are received.
DEFINITIONS AND STANDARDS OF MEATS AND MEAT FOOD PRODUCTS
The following definitions and standards for meats and the principal meat
products were adopted by the Secretary of Agriculture July 3, 1926, and pub-
lished as Food Inspection Decision 205:
Flesh is any1~ clean, sound, edible part of the striated muscle of an animal.
The term "'animal," as herein used, indicates a mammal, a fowl, a fish, a crusta-
cean, a mollusk, or any other animal used as a source of food.
Meat I is the properly dressed flesh derived from cattle, from swine, from
sheep, or from goats, sufficiently mature and in good health at the time of
slaughter, but is restricted to that part of the striated muscle which is skeletal
or that which is found in the tongue, in the diaphragm, in the heart, or in the
esophagus, and does not include that found in the lips, in the snout, or in the
ears; with or without the accompanying and overlying fat, and the portions of
bone, skin, sinew, nerve, and blood vessels which normally accompany the flesh
and which may not; have been separated from it in the process of dressing it for
sale.
Fresh meat is meat which has undergone no substantial change in character
since the time of slaughter.
Beef is meat derived from cattle nearly 1 year of age, or older.
Veal is meat derived from young cattle 1 year or less of age.
Mutton is me t derived from sheep nearly 1 year of age, or older.
Lamb is meat derived from young sheep 1 year or less of age.
Pork is meat derived from swine.
Venison is flesh derived from deer.
Meat by-products are any clean, sound, and properly dressed edible parts,
other than meat, which have been derived from one or more carcasses of cattle,
of swine, of sheep, or of goats, sufficiently mature and in good health at the time
of slaughter.

I The term "'meat"' when used in a qualified form, as, for exam ple, "horse meat,''" reindeerr meat," crab
meat,"' etc., is then, and then only, properly applied to the corresponding portions of animasl other than
cattle, swine, sheep, and goats. "

SUMMARY OF TUBERCULOSIS-ERADICATION WORK IN COOPERA-
TION WITH STATES, JULY, 1926





1926] SERVICE AND REGULATORY ANNOUNCEM6ENTB 69

POLITICAL ACTIVITY

Competitive employees, while retaining the right to vote and to express pri-
vately their opinions on political subjects, are forbidden to take an active part
in political management or in political campaigns. This also applies to temporary
employees, employees on leave of absence with or without pay, substitutes, andl
laborers. Political activity in city, county, State or national elections, whether
primary or regular, or in behalf of any party or candidate, or any measure to be
voted upon, is prohibited.
Employees are accountable for political activity by persons other than them-
selves, including wives or husbands, if, in fact, the employees are thus accom-
plishing by collusion and indirection what they may not lawfully do directly and
openly. Political activity, in fact, regardless of t~he methods or means used by
the employee, constitutes the violation.
POLITICAL ASSESSMENTS, SOLICITATIONS, AND DISCRIMINATION
Sections 118, 119, 120, and 121 of the Criminal Code (see 35 Stat. 1110) pro-
vide that no legislative, executive, or judicial- officer or employee shall solicit or
be concerned in soliciting or receiving any money or contribution for political
purpose from any other officer or employee of the Government; that no solicita-
tion or receipt of political assessments shall be made by any person in any room
or building occupied in the discharge of official duties by any officer or employee
of the United States; that no officer or employee shall be discharged or demoted
for refusing to make any contribution for political purposes; and that no officer
or employee of the Govlernment shall directly or indirectly give or hand over to
any other oflieer or employee in the service of the United States or to any M~ember
or Delegate to Congress any money or other valuable thing for the promotion
of any political object whatever.
Section 122 of the Criminal Code provides that whoever shaUl violate any pro-
vision of the four sections shall be fined not more than $5,000, or imprisoned
not more than three years, or both.
PRESIDENTIAL OFFICERS
Presidential appointees are forbidden by statute to use their official authority
or influence to coerce the political action of any person or body, to make any con-
tribution for a political object to any other officer of the United States, or to
solicit or receive contributions for political purposes from other Federal officers
or employees, or to discriminate among their employees or applicants for political
reasons.
Otherwise, a presidential appointee will be allowed to take such a part in
political campaigns as is taken by any private citizen, except that under depart.-
mental regulations issued by the Stat~e, Treasuryr, War, Navy, Interior, Agricul-
ture, and Commerce Departments, and by~ the Interstate Commerce Commission,
the Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, and the Public Printer, he will
not be permitted--
1. To hold a position as a member or officer of any political committee that
solicits funds.
2. To display such obtrusive partisanship as to eause public scandal.
3. To attempt to manipulate party primaries or conventions.
4. To use his position to bring about his selection as a delegate to conventions.
5. To act as chairman of a political convention.
6. To assume the active conduct of a political campaign.
7. To use his position to interfere with an election or to affect the result thereof.
8. To neglect his public duties.
It, is the duty of any person having knowledge of the violation of any of the
foregoing provisions of the civil-service rules or Criminal Code to submit the
facts to the United States Civil Service Commission, Washington, D. C.
At the request of the Civil Service Commission, the above is published for the
information and guidance of employees of the Department of Agriculture.
