frequently held at the Canadian border owing to the fact that accompanying cer-
tificates are signed by bureau inspectors whose names are not recognized by the
Canadian authorities. Inspectors in charge should make certain that certificates in
these cases are signed only by a bureau inspector whose name has been listed with
the Canadian veterinary director general. While the veterinary director general
will be requested by the bureau to add the names of inspectors to such list upon
recommendation of the inspector in charge, it is desired to limit the number on this
list to those inspectors whose .services will be actually required for this work at a

duplicate copy should be forwarded to the bureau. A Q. D. Form 17 also sli.:',uld be
issued to accompany the shipment. The inspection should be further reported to
the bureau on Q. D. Form 18. In all cases of tuberculin tests applied to cattle for
export shipment it is required that the owner or his agent furnish an affiLvit to the
effect that all animals presented for tk.s;ing have never reacted to a tuberculin test
and have not been injected with tuberulin within 60 days.
In the mallpin testing of horse stock Q. D. Form 70 only is to be issued with stub
attached. It is desired that so far as possible mallein test certificates (Q. D. Form 70)
issued by registered practicing veterinarians be indorsed by the bureau inspector

Q. D. Forms 55 and 55A are for use in connection with the inspection of swine in
accordance with section 42 of the Can.,dian quarantine regulations as amended by
an order in council dated December 21. lq18. Q. D. Form 55 is to be issued for all
swine except pure-bred, double-treated hogs. Q. D. Form 55A is intended to accom-
pany shipments of double-treated swine. Both forms are in duplicate. One copy
should accompany the shipment and the other be forwarded to the bureau for filing.
Canadian ministerial order No. 40 makes provision for a bureau certificate to accom-
pany sheep, stating that they have been twice dipped in one of the preparations
approved by the bureau. F. I. Form 24 should be issued for such sheep and a report
on Q. D. Form 18 forwarded to the bureau. In ministerial order No. 40 it is pro-
vided that sheep for breeding purposes may be imported without quarantine from
the States of Washington. North Dakota. Montana, Idaho. and Wyoming provided
the animals are accompanied with a certificate signed by an nfficer of the bureau
stating that he has inspected the animals within the 30 days prior to their arrival in
'anada. and has found them free from scab and necrobacillosis. and that those dis-
eases do not exist in the county or counties in which the sheep originated. Inaccorl-
ance with such requirement of the Canadian regulation, a certificate, Q. D. Form 17A,
has been prepared and should be issued to accompany sheep for breeding purpkc-,.
when forwarded to (anada from one of the above-mentioned States.
MIXING AND TESTING OF HOG-CHOLERA VIRUS.
Hog-cholera virus intended forsimultaneous inoculation shall be collected in batches
of not to exceed 20,000 cubic centimeters.

MEMORIAL TO AGRICULTURAL EMPLOYEES WHO SERVED IN THE WAR.
A large number of Department of Agriculture employees served their country as
soldiers, sailors, and marines during the war in Europe. Many have given their
lives that we and the whole world may enjoy the freedom which is so precious to us
all. As most of us were compelled by force of circumstances to stay at home, it is
only proper and just for us to perpetuate, in an appropriate manner, the honor.and
memory of our fellow workers who have made the supreme sacrifice. They deserve
everlasting gratitude and honor and it is believed that every one of us, without
SERVICE AND REGULATORY ANNOUNCEMENTS.
exception, will have some personal interest in the proposal to commemorate fittingly
the services of our former associates.
In recognition of these services it is proposed to erect a suitable testimonial in the
beautiful grounds of the department at Washington, where it shall be a daily reminder
of the debt we owe our brave colleagues. Such a memorial should be worthy in every
respect of those in whose honor it is to be erected, should be in keeping with the
architectural design of the department buildings, and should be in accordance with
the plans of the Fine Arts Commission for the improvement of the Mall. The pro-
posal to erect a handsome stone drinking fountain with an appropriate bronze tablet
bearing the names of our fallen comrades has been approved by the Secretary and
informally by the Fine Arts Commission. Cougrem will be asked to authorize the

them has been appointed and will have the cooperation of a committee in each
bureau and separate office of the department.
Every employee, including those in the field, will have an opportunity to take
part in this memorial and will have authority to receive voluntary subscriptions
from friends and relatives of those whose memory it is desired to perpetuate.
Subscription cards will be sent soon to all field stations of the bureau and the amount
pledged may be made payable immediately or at a time to suit the subscriber's con-
venience, either in one payment or in installments. Subscriptions may be in any
amount; it is for the employees to determine by the sire of their contributions the
character of the memorial to be erected. It is especially important that the pledges
be returned at once, so that it may be shown what sum of money is to be expected.
Thib, of course, to a great extent will govern the character of the memoriaL
The chairman of the committee for this bureau is Ernest Kelly, Dairy Division,
Washington, D. C., to whom all pledges and payments should be sent.

ing his probationary period. If and when, during the probationary period, after full
and fair trial, the conduct or capacity of the probationary be not satisfactory to the

in the classified civil service.
The probationer may be advised by a bureau official that his services have been
u satisfactory and that it is the intention to r, commend that his probationary appoint-
mnient be terminated, but this advice can only be considered as preliminary and will
be without effect unless the Secretary later approve the recommendation and terminate
Section (c) of paragraph 97 of the Administrative Regulations is hereby amended

SERVICE AND REGULATORY ANNOUNCEMENTS.
USE OF TRANSPORTATION REQUESTS IN CONNECTION WITH SLEEP-
ING AND PARLOR-CAR ACCOMMODATIONS.
Attention is invited to the following provisions of a circular issued under date of
March 3, 1919, by the United States Railroad Administration, outlining the proceduin *
which will obtain on and after April 1,1919, in connection with the use of Govcrnnn ni
transportation requests to secure sleeping and parlor-car accommodations:
Effective April 1, 1919, the practice of issuing sleeping and parlor-car tickets in
exchange for Government transportation requests and State orders calling for accom-
modations to be furnished by sleeping and parlor-car lines will be discontinued, and
in lio-u thereof the following will apply:
The transportation requests may be pr-sr-ntod to ticket agents, and the accommo-
dations called for by the requests when available will be reserved.
The ticket agent will indicate on the request, in space provided for showing the
form and number of ticket, the specific spa,. to be furnished: that is, berth or seat
number, car number, train time, and, unless shbwvn on request, the name of the initial
road, proper notation to be made by the ticket agent on his office diagram, and the
request, returned to the holder for surrend,.r to conductor.
If, after reservation has been made, trip is abandoned, the ticket agent should be
notified so that the space can be released. It will b..- permissible, if the request is
returned to the ticket agent before departure of thb. train, for him to erase the reserva-
tion from the diagram and from request and new reservation, if desired, made.
All transportation requests must be lift, d by the initial sleeping or parlor-car con-
ductor, and transfer tickets issued where necessary.
SUNDAY AND HOLIDAY LEAVE.
Particular attention is invited to the amended paragraph 97--c of the Administrative
Regulations of this department, revised to August 1, 1918, appearing elsewhere in
this issue of Service and Regulatory Announcements, anff reading as follows:
.1. When such days (Sundayg or holidays) occur at the conclusion of a period of
annual or sick leave they will not be counted as leave if the employee returns to duty
on the day following the Sunday orholiday; buttheywill be counted asleave-without
pay if the employee, instead of returning to duty on the day following the Sunday or
holiday, immediately enters upon a period of leave w-ithout pay.
Sunday or holidcavs will also the county as leave without pay at the conclusion of
an indefinite period of leave without pay. or absence without permission charged as
leave without pay, as under such circumstances an employee can not be restored to a
pay status prior to his actual return to duty.
If, however, leive without t pav granted for a definite period expires with the day
before a Sunday or holiday, the Sunday or holiday will not be charged as leave if the
employee returns to duty on the day following the Sunday or holiday.
It will be seen that under this amendment when an employee has returned to duty
on a day following a Sunday or legal holiday from absence without pay he may receive
salary only for the Sunday or holiday when the absence was "leave without pay"
granted in advance for a definite period to expire with the day preceding the Sunday
When an employee is about to exhaust all his annual leave and, for good and suffi-
cient reasons, desires leave without pay at the termination of his annual leave, or in
the case of sick leave if he is forced by continued illness to take leave without pay,
he or his physician, before going on leave without pay, may estimate when he will be
able to return to duty and make application for leave without pay for a definite perioI
ending with a day previous to a Sunday or a holiday, and if granted may receive pay
for that Sunday or holiday provided he returns to duty the day following. Thus it
becomes necessary that all applications covering leave without pay in such cases,
also time reports T-40 and T-40a, must indicate whether the leave was granted in
advance and whether for a "definite" or "indefinite" period.
To prevent unnecessary correspondence and the loss of pay to employees for Sundays
and holidays to which they may be entitled, strict compliance with these instructions

pr-titive position, may be reinstated in the department or office in which he formerly
se,., 'ed, upon certificate of the Commission, subject to the following limitations:
u The separation must have occurred within one year next preceding the date of
the requisition of the nominating or appointing officer for such certificate; but this
liniitation shall not apply to a person who served in the Civil War or the War with
Spain and was honorably discharged, to an Army nurse of either war or the war with
Germany, or to the widow of a person who served in any of these wars and was honor-
i h) No person may be reinstated to a position requiring an examination different

'i'his amendment is recommended by the Civil Service Commission to make uniform
the provisions applying to Army nurses and widows of persons who served in any war
and wore honorably discharged.
