THE FOOT-AND-MOUTH SITUATION
Veterinary Forces Hold Foot-and-Mouth Disease in Check
(Statem.nt issued October 231
Report- to the 1'. S. Department of Agriculture from Dr. Marion Imes, in
charge of the State and Federal forces engaged in eradicating foot-and-mouth
disea-e from southeastern Texas, show the effectiveness of control measures.
Although nearly a monthly has passed since the announcement on September 27,
of the outbreak, the infection has not spread from the area originally mapped out
as dangerous territory. The last infected herd was found by veterinary inspec-
tors October 15 and was slaughtered alnd buried the same day. The toll of the
disease thus far has been limited to 6 herds containing about 2,700 animals, and
in addition about 4,600 stray cattle rounded up from exposed pastures.
Doctor lines reports that extraordinary precautions are being taken to guard
the quarantined area. The veterinarians engaged in suppressing the disease are
making a thorough search of the large quarantined area for stray animals. Part
of the country i. wooded and swampy, but the inspectors selected for the work
are accustomed to all kinds of field conditions. Public officials, railroad com-
panics, stockmen, and the public are giving wholehearted cooperation, and the
presence of Texas rangers is reported to have a wholesome influence in obtaining
compliance with the necessary regulations.
While a large number of States have promulgated regulations prohibiting entry
of lii\etock and other specified commodities from Texas, the regulations are
more rea.,oon hle and more in accordance with carefully drafted Federal restric-
tions than those promulgated during the California outbreak. Great Britain,

StaniuiiLnu Natiinal Forest wvhiih the animals were being trailed to their home
ranches. The forest now contains no livestock except a few atra; '. and these are
living rounded up and shot. The carcasses are disposed of by approved methods.
No, infection of any kind has been found since October 9, but the inspection
forces will continue making the necessary tests for the protection of the livestock
industry of the Stllte and the Nation.

UNITED STATES TO HAVE AGRICULTURAL COMMISSIONER AT
MEXICO CITY
(Statement issued October 24)

Dr. S. 0. Fladness, of the Bureau of Animal Industry, U. S. Department of
Agriculture, left. Washington on October 24 for Mexico City, to take up, on
November 1, his duties as agricultural commissioner representing the depart-
ment.. His headquarters will be at the American consulate.
Arrangements for attaching an agricultural commissioner to the consulate in
Mexico were made through the State Department, and United States officials
believe that the personal contact thus made possible will be of benefit to both
countries.
The duties of Doctor Fladness will consist largely in conferring with Mdxican
authorities concerning livestock diseases and quarantine regulations in an
endeavor to secure uniformity in the regulations of the two countries. He will
perform other duties for various branches of the department, including activities
of an economic character. His varied experience in livestock and other agri-
cultural work makes him well fitted to fill this new office. At one time he

116 BUREAU OF ANIMAL INDUSTRY [October,

represented the department in South America as a livestock specialist, has
served two years in the Packers and Stockyards Administration, and has had
much experience in meat inspection and livestock-sanitary work.
As agricultural commissioner to Mexico the duties of Doctor Fladness will
be to represent the department in all matters pertaining to agriculture, in which
the two countries are jointly interested.


AMENDMENTS TO THE FISCAL REGULATIONS
Per Diem Allowance
Paragraph 37 of the Fiscal Regulations of the department is hereby amended
to read as follows:
37. Rules governing per diem allowance.-Per diem allowance in lieu of sub-
sistence will be subject to the following rules:
(a) Each day of 24 hours will be considered as beginning at midnight. Per
diem allowance for any day in which the employee is in a subsistence status less
than 24 hours must be fixed separately and at a rate not to exceed $1 if the sub-
sistence status period is 6 hours or less, $2 if more than 6 hours and not more than
12 hours, $3 if more than 12 hours and not more than 18 hours, and $4 if more
than 18 hours. These special rates will apply to travel status periods of less than
a day occurring at the beginning or end of a continuous trip of more than one
day. For trips of less than a day actual expenses only will be allowed.
The change consists in establishing the actual expense basis exclusively for
absences of less than 24 hours from post of duty. Decisions of the Comptroller
General, 3 Comp. Gen. 598 and 966, lay down a rule which may be summarized
by quoting from the syllabus of the latter: "Where an immigrant inspector
is temporarily absent from his official station while operating in adjacent
territory for short periods under conditions which would not ordinarily interfere
with his domestic arrangements for obtaining the usual subsistence, he can not
be regarded as in a travel status for the purpose of payment to him of a per diem,
or an:, fractional parts-of a per diem, in lieu of subsistence." There is difficulty
in determining from these decisions the state of facts which would warrant pay-
ment of the per diem and those under which payment would not be permissible.
For instance, one of the per diem charges considered and held disallowable in the.
latter decision was based upon departure by automobile from official station at
5.30 a. m. with return at 1.00 p. m. on the same day. It has been deemed simpler
therefore to prescribe the actual expense basis in all cases where the absence
from official station falls short of a day.
Tips in Georgia
Subparagraphs (c), (f), and (h) of paragraph 33 of the Fiscal Regulations of the
department are hereby amended by elimination of Georgia from the States enu-
merated in said subparagraphs in which State laws forbid the payment of train,
station, and hotel porters' fees and fees to waiters.
