NOTICE REGARDING MEAT INSPECTION
OVERTIME PAY IN THE MEAT-INSPECTION SERVICE
The following regulation in the form of Memorandum No. 489 relating to the
meat-inspection service was issued on June 18, 1924, by the Secretary:
The act of Congress, making appropriations for the Department of Agriculture for the fiscal year 1925,
makes available additional funds for meat inspection with a view to providing for the cost of duty now per-
formed by department employees as overtime work and reimbursed by official establishments.
As far as the funds available will pern it. ~l.1't ion il inspector r- will be supplied to meat-inspection stations.
Where this is impracticable, salaries of i n i % vIu. I nI .pect or 1 w II be adjusted so as to allow proper compensa-
tion for t h. .. a-l in meat inspection involving regularly long hours of service so that hardships to inspec-
tors may t-t o.iii.-.1 as far as possible.
.A' ,.r.firiel'. on and after July 1, 1924, Department Memoir.ndiini No. 288 of AuEist 4.1919, will cease to
1., .-iT., i iv ..* ,.,pt in cases of emergency and under specific instruction from the C(hief of the Bureau of
A iim I In'liiutry.







1924] SERVICE AND REGULATI RY ANNOUNC(EM ENTS 91

The effect of this memorandum is to discontinue payment by official establish-
ments for overtime work performed by bureau inspectors, except when the inspec-
tor in charge has received specific instructions from the bureau to claim such
payment. Under the provisions of Memorandum 489 it can not be expected
that the inspection hours will be reduced nor should they be materially increased
by the establishments over those of the previous year, except at establishments
where the volume of business is considerably enlarged or other extraordinary
condition prevails. The representative of the meat packers has given assurance
that no increase of inspection hours will occur as a result of establishments being
relieved from paying for overtime service.
Whenever an establishment operates any of its departments requiring inspec-
tion during long or unusual hours inspection will be furnished but no claim will
be made for the payment of overtime. If, however, the inspector in charge has
good reason to believe that an establishment has unnecessarily required inspec-
tion or that its requirements are out of harmony with those which obtained when
the establishments paid for overtime, he will make careful investigation and when
the facts warrant such action he will report them to the bureau for consideration
of the application of Memorandum 288 to the future operations of that estab-
lishment.
Under the general plan outlined in Memorandum 489 available bureau funds
are allotted on the basis of overtime performed prior to July 1, 1924. Allot-
ments for the larger stations are utilized to supply additional inspectors, while
at various other stations the inspectors who thereafter worked overtime for con-
siderable periods are given proportionate increase in salaries. This is subject to
change which may be dictated by experience.
Inspectors in charge will keep in close touch with the situation. Those at the
larger stations will utilize the services of the additional inspectors supplied so as
to minimize and equalize long or unusual hours of service as far as possible. At
other stations readjustment of salaries within the station allowance will be made
from time to time, as may be necessary on account of change in working hours
or duty, transfer, or other cause, to insure fairness to those who perform long or
unusual hours of service, and inspectors in charge of such stations will submit
their recommendations whenever such readjustment is indicated.


THE FOOT-AND-MOUTH SITUATION
LONGER INTERVALS BETWEEN FLARE-UPS MARK ERADICATION OF CATTLE PLAGUE
With gradually increasing intervals between recurrences of foot-and-mouth
disease in California the situation in suppressing this livestock plague becomes
more and more favorable. This was the view of the chief of the Bureau of
Animal Industry on August 30, based on official records. No new outbreaks
have appeared in Toulumne County since August 16, and none in Los Angeles
County since August 23. In the 14 other countries involved during the out-
break no new cases have occurred for more than two months. The department
veterinarians continue to make painstaking inspections so that further cases, if
any, will be promptly detected.
In most of the herds in which the disease has been found recently only one
animal in each herd was affected. This means that the system of thorough
inspection resulted in prompt discovery and suppression before the virus had
time to spread.
In the infected range area in Tuolumne County mounted inspectors are gath-
ering up stray cattle and disposing of them by the slaughter and burial method.
None of these animals have shown lesions of the disease for about two weeks,
but the value of such stock is small compared with the ravages the disease would
make if any of these animals should develop the disease and spread it to other
stock. A constant patrol of the ranges will be continued.
Further evidence that foot-and-mouth disease has yielded to scientific methods
is the 100 per cent result obtained with test animals on disinfected premises.
After an infected herd is slaughtered, buried, and the premises disinfected, the
veterinary oflivials always use a few test animals for at least 30 days before general
restocking of the premises is permitted. The test animals will show symptoms
of the disease in case any dormant infection had escaped the action of the disin-
fecting chemicals. Thus far on more than 200 premises no test animal has shown
any signs of foot-and-mouth disease, nor have any ot the other new stock brought
on the premises later been affected. This is considered rather remarkable in








BUREAU OF ANIMAL INDUSTRY


view of the treacherous nature and persistence of the virus, and speaks well for
the work of the disinfecting crews.
Increasing numbers of States have modified their regulations dealing with the
foot-and-mouth outbreak to conform to those of the department's Bureau of
Animal Industry. This makes for uniformity of administrative and field work.

96 BUREAU OF ANIMAL INDUSTRY [August,

AMENDMENT TO THE FISCAL REGULATIONS
TRANSPORTATION OF EFFECTS OF OFFICERS AND EMPLOYEES

The preamble of paragraph 90 of the Fiscal Regulations of the department is
hereby amended to read as follows:
90. Transportation of effects, etc., of officers and (mployr,'.%.-An employee transferred from one official
station to another for permanent duty when allowed traveling expenses may, within the discretion and
under written instructions from the chief of the bureau in which he serves, be allowed freight and drayage
ehirees, together with packing and crating threes on articles ordinarily so prepared for shipment, on (a)
household goods and personal effects, including animal for domestic use, and (b) personal property which
will be used in official work at the new tat ion. including an automobile or motor cycle. Transfers of such
property at Government expense will he authorizeLl only from present or former permanent stations to a
new permanent station. Specific. aut hot iza non must. be secured in all c.jes where the shipment to be made
involves a former instead of the present [eti mrunent station : Proi .dd. however, That an employee will not
be deprived of any allowance herein sur horized throtigh the selection of residence in a suburb of his official
station. All shipments of freight shall be made in accordance with the provisions of paragraph 90 (b).
Shipments may be made by express of articles of a perishable nature or required for immediate use at the
offici.al sta:i on to which an employee may be transferred, such as wearing apparel, tableware, bedding,
and k Ir(chen utensils, but not including furniture and jewelry: Proi idrd, Th it this shall apply only in cases
where shipment by freight would cause delay and inconvenience. Shipments; may also be made by motor
truck when the cost of shipment by this means does not exceed the cost by freight, taking into consideration
charges of packing, crating, and drayage, and as excess baggage when the excess weight does not exceed
200 pounds. Shipments as excess baggage should be released at the lowest valuation applicable.
The principal change made by the foregoing amendment is that authority is
given to transport effects not only from the official station from which the em-
ployee is being transferred, as was the previous rule, but also where specific
approval of the chief of bureau has been secured, from a former post of duty.
This change follows the Comptroller General's decision of June 9, 1920 (26 Comp.
Dec. 996), to the Secretary of Agriculture. The portion of the former paragraph
which specified the classes of material subject to transportation at Government
expense has also been rewritten to conform more closely to the language of the
Comptroller General in his decision to the Secretary of Agriculture of May 14,
1923, A. D. 7629, wherein the scope of the regulation which the Secretary may
properly issue is indicated as follows:
"The regulation may therefore provide that an employee transferred from one
official station to another for permanent duty may under properly designated
authority be allowed transportation at Government expense of
household goods and personal effects, including a specified limited number of
domestic animals for family use, with provision for reasonable expenses for
packing and crating such property. The regulation may also provide for the
transfer at public expense of the personal property of the employee used in official
work, including automobile or motorcycle *."

Inspection has been reestablished at the Union Stock Yards, Houston, Tex.,
and that place is again designated a public stockyard as defined in paragraph 9,
section 1, Regulation 1, B. A. I. Order 273.
