uct shall be $24.00; (2) For an in-
spection covering condition-only,
$10.00 when the quantity involved is
more than one-half of a carload of the
customary size for such products in

more than a full carload, and $7.00
when the quantity involved is not more
than one-half of such carload, but the
maximum fee for condition-only in-
spection of any carload not exceeding
the customary size which contains
more than one kind of a product shall
be $20.00; (3) When any lot involved
is in excess of a carload the quantity
shall be calculated in terms of car-
loads and fractions thereof of the
customary size for such carloads and
carload rates aforesaid applied: Pro-
vided, That such fractions shall be
calculated in terms of fourths or next
higher fourths.
(b) Base fee for peanuts, pecans, or

tainers: And provided further, That

lot, the different grades and varieties

(shelled), pecans, or other nuts shall
be $15.00 for each lot of the customary
carload size for such products in the
area from which shipped: Provided,

Notice of proposed rule making,
procedure thereon, and postponement
of the effective time of this document
later than July 1, 1958 (see Section 4
of the Administrative Procedure Act;
5 U. S. C. 1001 et seq.) are imprac-
ticable, unnecessary, and contrary to
the public interest for the reasons that:
(1) Legislation provides that the fees
charged shall be reasonable and shall
as nearly as possible cover the cost
of the service rendered; (2) the cost
of such service is peculiarly within
the knowledge of the Department and


the fees set forth herein are neces-
sary to more nearly cover such cost
including, but not limited to increased
salaries to Federal employees required
by recent legislation (Public Law 4 6,
85th Congress, 2d Session, approved
June 20, 1958); (3) it is imperative
that the increase in fees become ef-
fective with the commencement of the
new fiscal year; and (4) additional
time is not required in order for the
industry to make preparation for com-
pliance with this amendment.
(Sec. 205, 60 Stat. 1090, as amended; 7
U. S. C. 1624)
Dated: June 24, 1958, to become ef-
fective July 1, 1958.
