SERVICE AND REGULATORY ANNOUNCEMENTS


NOTICES REGARDING MEAT INSPECTION
WEIGHT OF SAUSAGE IN BOXES FOR THE U. S. NAVY
Inspectors will please be governed in accordance with the following request.
from the U. S. Navy:
Specifications for certain items such as bologna sausage require the product to be delivered in boxes:
weighing 50 pounds net. This standard weight was adopted for deliveries in large quantities and was not
intended to restrict the purchase of small quantities by certain small vessels, the complements of which
do not make it economical to purchase in the standard container.
These specifications, as adopted, technically require the inspectors of the Bureau of Animal Industry to
inspect only 50 pound packages but it is requested that the necessary inst ruct ions be issued that in all cases
where the order is for less than 50 pounds the inspector inspect such smaller quantity.
It should be noted that this does not apply to a quantity greater than 50 pounds and all such quantities
will necessarily have to be in multiples of 50 pounds.
APPROVAL OF STENCILS, BOX DIES, AND BRANDS

Referring to notice contained in Service and Regulatory Announcements of
March, 1924, under the caption, "Approval of stencils, box dies, and brands,"
the following is a supplemental list of names and words approved for all estab-
lishments, for application by means of stencils, box dies, or brands, and such
markings may be applied individually or in combination with other approved
markings, provided the combinations are applicable to the products, are not
inconsistent, and do not result in false or deceptive labeling.
Any of the words or names may be applied in singular or plural form, as may
be appropriate.
The approvals cover also recognized abbreviations of the words and names
included in this and previous lists, such as E. I. M., Reg., Spec., Pkld., N. Y.,
C. C., P. P., Bf., Pk., etc.
The approval of stencils, box dies, and brands should be construed as in blanket
form so far as concerns the omission or addition of any statement of quantity.
Stencils, box dies, and brands bearing only statements of quantity do not require
approval. 4
The words "brand," "style," and "cut" may be used interchangeably as
qualifications. Where such qualifications accompany names covered by blanket
approvals, they shall be applied in the same size and style of letters as the names
qualified. The qualifications may also be added to names approved in unquali-
fied form, without restrictions as to comparative size and style. It should be
4 understood, however, that such designations as "ham style," "pork style,"
"beef style," "kosher style," etc., are not permitted.
In case of doubt as to the scope of approvals, inspectors should refer questions
to the Washington office for a ruling.

THE FOOT-AND-MOUTH SITUATION

The following press statement issued by the department June 2S, deals with
the outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease in California:
Continued improvement in the foot-and-mouth disease situation in California
is reported by the United States Department of Agriculture for the week ended
June 2S. New infection was found on only three days and was limited to a
small area in Los Angeles County. Five herds, containing 483 cattle altogether,
were involved. These were slaughtered promptly. In Tulare, Fresno, and
Merced Counties there has been no recurrence of infection since the outbreaks
reported a week ago. On June 28 department records showed that all diseased
herds had been slaughtered and buried and the premises disinfected. The
situation is more favorable than at any time during the outbreak.
Although danger of the spread of foot-and-mouth disease is now considered
remote, there is no relaxation in the rigidity of inspection and in the disinfection,
including that of all railroad cars used in the transportation of livestock any-
where in the State. At a conference held at Reno, Nev., on June 23, attended
by livestock sanitary officials of 11 Western States and of the United States
Department of Agriculture, important modifications of State regulations were
agreed upon. These will facilitate tourist travel and permit the movement of
300,000 lambs from northern California and Oregon through California to mid-
western markets.
Toll of the Disease

The toll of foot-and-mouth disease up to June 28 has amounted to nearly
100,000 head of livestock. Slaughter reports show the following approximate
figures for different classes of animals: 50,000 cattle, 25,000 sheep, 22,000 hogs,
800 goats. About 450 premises have been infected altogether. Indemnities for
the livestock slaughtered have amounted to approximately 83,700,000, which is
being shared equally by the Federal Government and the State of California.

AMENDMENT TO THE ADMINISTRATIVE REGULATIONS
EMPLOYEES AS WITNESSES
By Memorandum No. 4S8 of the office of the Secretary, dated June 19, 1924,
paragraph 59 of the Administrative Regulations of the department is amended
to read as follows:
(a) Appearance.-Unless properly subpoenaed, no employee of this department
shall produce department records or documents or testify in respect to any matter
relating to the work of the department or of which his knowledge is based directly
or indirectly upon department records or upon his personal observation or service
in the department, except on behalf of the United States or of a cooperating State
or subdivision thereof. Employees engaged in the enforcement of the migratory
bird treaty act and officials of the Forest Service designated by the Secretary to
aid in the enforcement of the laws of the States with regard to stock, for the
prevention and extinguishment of forest fires, and for the protection of fish and
game, may. upon request of proper local officials, testify and produce the necessary
records and documents on behalf of a State in respect to violations of the laws of
the States relating to these subjects.
When properly subpoenaed in any judicial proceeding, each employee shall
give prompt, notice, either by letter or telegram, to the chief of the bureau wherein
he is employed, stating the names of the parties litigant, the time and place named
in the subpoena, and, in addition, unless the proceeding originated in the depart.-
ment, the subject. matter of the controversy and the nature of the testimony which
it is expected will be required. Unless otherwise instructed, the employee will
appear and testify. Whenever the production of the records or the giving of
testimony will be contrary to the interests of the public service or will interfere
substantially with the performance by the employee of his official duties, per-
mission to testify shall be refused. In cases of doubt, upon application to him
by any chief, the solicitor shall give prompt advice as to whether an employee is
properly subpoenaed or whether, if so subpoenaed, he can be compelled to testify.
Immediately upon his return to duty, following appearance in a case not
originating in the department, each employee shall report to his chief the date
and place of his appearance, names of the parties litigant, time spent in travel
and attendance, expenses incurred and fees, if any, whether either has been paid,
and, if so, by whom, and the nature of his testimony.
(b) 'Witness fees.-No employee of the department who appears to produce
department records or to testify in a judicial proceeding in which he is prohibited
by these regulations from producing records or testifying unless properly sub-
poenaed shall accept any fee or compensation other than reimbursement of his
travel and subsistence expenses unless authorized to do so in advance by his chief.
No employee shall receive or be authorized to accept witness fees in any case
unless he is required to take leave without pay for the time consumed in responding
to the subpoena, and then only in an amount not exceeding the amount deducted
from his salary on account of such leave without pay.
Whenever an employee properly subpoenaed appears in a judicial proceeding
in accordance with these regulations, the chief of the branch of the department
wherein he is employed shall inform him, if practicable, in advance whether he
will be required to take leave; and, if so, whether the same shall be with or
without pay for the time consumed in responding to the subpoena. In general,
employees who appear as witnesses otherwise than in the interest of the Govern-
ment of the United States shall be required to take leave. In case of doubt, upon
application to him by any chief, the Solicitor shall give prompt advice as to
whether the law permits the appearance of the employee without taking leave.
(c) Expense of travel and subsistcnce.--When any employee appears as a witness
on behalf of the United States in any case originating in this department, or a
field employee engaged in the enforcement of the migratory bird law appears on
behalf of a State in prosecutions under State laws for the protection of migratory
birds, or of officials of the Forest Service designated by the Secretary of Agri-
culture to aid in the enforcement of the laws of the States with regard to stock,
for the prevention and extinguishment of forest, fires, and for the protection of
fish and game, appearing on behalf of a State in prosecutions under State laws,
his expenses for travel and subsistence will be paid in accordance with the Fiscal
Regulations.
When an employee appears as a witness on behalf of the United States in any
case not originating in this department, his account for travel and subsistence
should be presented to the marshal or other officer of the court authorized to
pay the expenses of witnesses.
