PROCEEDINGS UNDER THE PACKERS AND STOCKYARDS ACT
Docket No. 892.-In re Mid-West Livestock Commission Co., market agency,
Oklahoma City, Okla. Notice of inquire issued July 22, 1929, alleging insol-
vency. On October 1, 1929, a hearing was held in this case, but the respondent
didd aot appear either in person oi through counsel. The examiner proceeded
with the case by having testimony introduced on behalf of the Government.
Respondent was afforded an opportunity to submit argument on or before Novem-
ber 4, but as no argument was received from him up to Novembei 20, the Acting
Secretary of Agriculture issued an order suspending respondent from registration
as a market agency for six months, with leave, however, during said period, to
apply for revocation of his suspension upon a showing satisfactory to the Secre-
tary of Agriculture that he is then solvent. Respondent was also ordered to cease
and desist from the unfair and deceptive practice and device of so using trust
funds in his possession as a market agency for various shippers as to render him
unable promptly to account for and pay his shippers the proceeds of livestock
sold by him, and to keep and maintain accounts, records, and memoranda
pertaining to his transactions.
Docket No. 297.-In re Ed. H. Kloppenburg, dealer, Sioux City Stock Yards,
Sioux City, Iowa. Notice of inquiry issued October 3, 1929, alleging insolvency.
Qn October 10, 1929, the respondent acknowledged service of the notice of in-
qttiry, admitted the truth of the matters and things therein alleged, and waived
a hearing thereon. On November 2, 1929, the Acting Secretary of Agriculture
L issued an order suspending respondent from registration as a dealer for six months,
with leave, however, during said period, to apply for revocation of his suspension
upon a showing satisfactory to the Secretary of Agriculture that he is then
solvent.

RESPONSIBILITY OF DRIVERS OF VEHICLES USED IN OFFICIAL WORK
Recently the following questions were referred to the solicitor of the depart-
ment for an opinion:
Where an employee in the field drives a Government-owned vehicle on official business, what is the limit
of responsibility of the Government both in the matter of-injury to personal property, injury to the car
itself, injury to the individual, and injury to other individuals? What is the responsibility of the driver,
and what protection does the Government give him?
The solicitor's reply was as follows:
The driver of a Government-owned vehicle is personally liable and may be sued for any damages caused
by reason of his negligent operation of a Government-owned vehicle to personal property, as well as to
injury to individuals. The only protection afforded him by the Government are the provisions of the act
of December 28, 1922 (40 Stat. 1066), authorizing the heads of the departments to consider, ascertain, adjust,
and determine any claiin on account of damages to, or loss of privately owned property, where the amount
does not exceed $1,000, caused by the negligence of any officer or employee of the Government acting within
the slope of his employment. It will be noted that this act is limited to damages to personally owned prop-
erty and it does not extend to personal injury. The owner of the property damaged could elect to sue th-e
employee-operator in lieu of filing claim under the act.
