PERMITTED DIP FOR CATTLE FOR TICKS

The bureau has granted permnissionl for the use of "'U. S. Tick Dip," ma.nu-
factured by U. S. Sanitary Specialists Corporation, 435-4411 South W~estern
Avenue, Chicago, Ill., in the official dipping of cattle for ticks. The dilution
for dipping cattle in interstate movement is 1 gallon of dip to not more than 127

AMENDMENT TO THE ADM\IINISTRATIVE REGULATIONS

By Memorandum 553, office of the Secretaryr, dated July 1, 1926, t~he adminis-
trative regulations of the department are hereby amended to include a new
paragraph as follows:
724. Marking of vehicles.--All motor-propelled vehicles of the Department
of Agriculture, except motor eyeles and railroad speeders, shall at all times be
conspicuously marked, on both sides, in suitable colors and in plain, solid, block
letters, as follows:
Ur. S.
DEPARTMENT
OF
A-GRICULTURE


This to be followed by one or two lines indicating the bureau, and the whole to
be inclosed in the outline of a union shield. Addiitional lettering to indicate a
particular division or office of a bureau may, if desired, be added immediately
below the shield. The shield, which is to be placed on the door of the vehicle
whenever practicable, aball be not less than 10 inches high and 10 inches wide,
and when one of such size is employed, the lettering shall b~e as follows:
"'U. S.,"' 7/ inch high; "'Department" and ''Agriculture," M inch high;
the connective "'Of," V/s inch high; all bureau indicia, iA inch high; the divi-
sional dash, s/8 inch long. All lettering shall be disposed in horizonltal lines; all
lettering within the shield shall be so condensed as to leave appropriate margins
between the lettering and the shield.
If desired, a shield of larger dimensions than 10 by 10 inches may? be used, in
which case all lettering should be proportionately increased in size.
Tractors, and motor cycles, railroad speeders, and other vehicles not included
in t~he preceding paragraph, should also be appropriately marked, wheniever
practicable, to indicate their public character, the legend in each case to be
determined by the bureau concerned.
Vehicles now in use and already marked will not be subject to the foregoing
regulation unless or until re-marking becomes necessary, but. all other vehicleR
nown in service, except those intended to be turned in within six months in con-
nection with the purchase of newv equipment, w~ill be marked within three months
from date. All new vehicles will be marked as procured; bureaus may have this
marking included in the delivery contracts, or, if preferred, masy arrange to issue
decalcomania transfers for the use of their employees in effecting it.


AM~ENDM~ENTS TO THE FISCAL REGULATIONS

By memorandums 554 and 555, office of the Secretary, dated July 1 and
July 3, 1926, respectively, the Fiscal Regulations of the department are amended
as follows-
2. General burea u a uthorization.-C~hiefs of bureau us are au thorized, within the
terms of the appropriations for their bureaiis, and in conformity wit~h the law,
the decisions of thie Comnptroller G~eneral, and the fiscal and other regulations,
(a) to direct necessary travel within the continental U~nited States and in the parts
of Canada and M~exico contiguous to the Urnited States by their emoployees
generally, and travel in the Territories and insular possessions of the United
Sttes by their employees there stationed, allowing subsistence on either the
actual expense or per diem basis; (b) to issue purchase orders for supplies and for
job w~ork; (c) to issue authorizations for the publication of advertisements, notices,
and proposals in such newspapers or trade journals as will best serve the needs








6t0 BrUREA~ OF AN10KA INDUSgTRYP get

of the United States; (d) to incur such other arp~pnense as mayr be necessary properly
to carry on the work of their bureaus; and (e) to delegate any part of this authority
to their subordinates.
The foregoing amendment, in order to simplify procedure, omits the former
provisions that general letters of authorization will be issued amgaly~;&:cieSg ,
of bureaus. It also clarifies the existing provisions concerning tisEt1 outside 'of
continental United States.
3. Specific authorization by Secretary.-8Specific authorization by the Secretary
will be required in all cases involving (a) travel outside the continental United
States, with the exception of travel in the parts of Canada or Mlexico contiguous
to the United States, and of travel in the Territories and insular possessions of
the United States by employees there stationed; (b) travel for the purpose of
attending meetings or delivering lectures not otherwise provided for in the
Administrative Regulations; and (c) travel by persons not in the employ of the
Government in connection with the furtherance of proposed or current activities
of the department.
Subparagraph (a), as amended, carries the new language in paragraph 2 above
as to t~ravel outside the continental United States. The former subparagraph
(b) which concerned expenditures from the contingent fund of the department
has been omitted, in view of 5 Comp. Gen. 164.
Heretofore the procedure in requesting Secretary's authorization for items under
paragraph 3 has varied. In some cases memoranda have been used, in others
letters of authorization prepared in the bureau and bearing the Approved--
Secretary formula, while in still others both memoranda and letters of authoriza-
tion have been transmitted. In the interest of simplified procedure a memoran-
dumn only should be submitted when requesting authorizations. The necessity
for the action sought and expenditure involved should be clearly set forth. For
convenience the memorandum may, be submitted to the director of personnel
and business administration. The Secretary's action w~ill be indicated in a
separate communication to the bureau.
Paragraphs 33 preamble and 33 (h): Elimination of $5, daily limit of actual
expenses, and substitution of 57 for travel within and an average of 88 for travel
beyond the continental limits of the United States.
Paragraph 37 (ar): Elimination of 541, the limiting; per diem rate, and substi-
tution of $6 for travel within and %7 for travel beyond the continental limits
of the United States, with allowance for fractional parts of a day of one-fourth
the prescribed rate for periods not exceeding 6 hours, one-half the rate for periods
not exceeding 12 hours, three-fourths of the rate for periods not exceeding 18
hours, and the entire per diem for a period exceeding 18 hours.
In fixing allowances under the act of June 3, 1926, careful consideration will
be given by administrative offcers to the antideficiency provision in section 13
of the act, and per diem allowances will be prescribed at rates below the limits
authorized in the act in all cases where the nature of the points visited, the,
duration of the travel, or other conditions affecting subsistence costs indicate
that the maximum allowance would more than reimburse reasonable subsistence
expenditures. At the same time the importance is emphasized of imposing the
strictest limitations upon official travel consistent w~ith the efficient functioning
of the department.


LANTERN SLIDES ON VETERINARY WORK OF THE BUREAU

Illustrating the varied veterinary activities of employees in the Bureau of
Animal Industry, a set of lantern slides on this subject is now available for
distribution by the United States Department of Agriculture. The slides,
which number 51, show such activities as the enforcement of quarantine regu-
lations, eradication of numerous livestock diseases and parasites, scientific
research, and educational work.
The series is intended chiefly to acquaint livestock owners wlith the nature
and operation of the Federal veterinary service and also to interest young men
in the study of veterinary medicine as a career or in preparation for Federal
service, which is in frequent need of new inspectors.
The slides will be lent to responsible persons and organizations for a limited
period. Applications may be made either to the Office of Cooperative Extension
Work or to the Bureau of Animal Industry, Washington, D. C,
