The revised regulations also extend the restrictions on the interstate movement by refrigerator car or motor truck of all fruits and vegetables between June 15 and October 15 inclusive, to include such movement from the entire State of Delaware rather than from a part of the State as heretofore. Similar restrictions are also in effect with respect to the District of Columbia and certain areas in the States of Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
Under the revision of the quarantine the Chief of the Bureau of Entomology and Plant Quarantine is authorized to exempt from restrictions the articles and products covered thereby when he is convinced the movement involves no risk of spreading the Japanese beetle. The additions to the regulated territory are as follows:
Maine.-Towns of Auburn and Lewiston, in Androscoggin County; towns of Gorham, Gray, New Gloucester, Raymond, Standish, and Windham, in Cumrberland County..

The regulations have also been revised to include in the regulated area additional territory in the States of Maine, Maryland, New York, and Virginia. Some outlying areas where Japanese beetle infestations have been found are not included in the reg-ulated area because of assurance from the States concernefl that adequate mneasunres will be taken to prevent the spread of the pest therefrom.

INSTRUCTIONS TO PUERTO RICAN POSTMASTERS

POST OFFICE DEPARTMENT,
THIRD ASSISTANT POSTMASTER GENERAL, Washington, D. C., March 10, 1936.
POSTMASTER :
In a recent 1-day test made at the post office of New York, N. Y., there were received many parcels from a number of post offices in Puerto Rico containing green ginger, banana leaves, oranges, yams, and other plant materials which were accepted for mailing to the mainland of the United States in violation of Quarantine Orders Nos. 16, 30, 32, 47, 58, and 60, in that they were either prohibited from entry into the United States or were not accompanied with the required certificate of inspection.
A copy of each of the quarantine orders mentioned is inclosed, and you are requested to take such steps as will prevent the acceptance of any parcels mailed at your office in future addressed to the mainland of the United States which contain any of the plants or plant products quarantined by the various orders mentioned or which contain plant products which are not accompanied with the prescribed certificate.
When any unpermissible plants or plant products are discovered in such parcels or where parcels of the other plants and pIlant products referred to are not accompanied with the prescribed certificate of inspection, the parcels should be returned to the senders and their attention invited to the provisions of the quarantine orders mentioned, particularly the penalty for violation thereof, and they should be cautioned not to attempt to mail such matter to the mainland in future, except as provided therein.
Quarantine Order No. 30 was amended (effective Oct. 10, 1935), lifting the prohibition from yams and allowing the movement of these tubers to lthe mainland under the restrictions of Quarantine Order No. 58, but sweetpotatoes are still prohibited movement to the mainland. Your cooperation in carefully watching for parcels of plant material which may be mailed at your office addressed to the mainland of the United States will be appreciated.
Very truly yours,

P. Q. C. A.-306, Supplement No. 3. MARCH 9, 1936.
PLANT-QUARANTINE IMPORT RESTRICTIONS, DOMINION OF NEW ZEALAND

The New Zealand Orchard and Diseases Act of September 13, 1928, defines "disease" as any of the diseases 'named in the first schedule to the act- In the prescribed forms of certificate set forth in P. Q. C. A.-306, certification of freedom from disease as above defined is required. The first schedule naming the declared diseases was not included in Circular P. Q. C. A.-306. It is now deemed desirable, for the guidance of plant quarantine inspectors, to present that list, as supplemented since its publication.
Regulation 13 of the regulations approved August 23, 1915, prescribes that if any fruits or plants are introduced or attempted to be introduced into New Zealand which, though accompanied by the certificates prescribed as necessary for such fruits or plants, are yet found on examination by an inspector to be infected with disease, such fruit or plants shall, together with any packages, wrappings, etc., containing the same, be dealt with as hereinafter provided:
Fruit, plants, or things infected with the diseases named in the twelfth schedule shall be held and fumigated.
Fruit, plants, or things infected with the diseases named in the thirteenth schedule shall be seized ind destroyed.

Fruits, plants, and things infected with the diseases named in the fifteenth schedule shall either be reshipped at once by the importer to a place beyond schedule shall be seized and destroyed.
Since the pests named in the twelfth schedule represent chiefly coccids and mites which are believed susceptible to destruction on arrival in New Zealand






1936] SERVICE AND REGULATORY ANNOUNCEMENTS 31

by approved methods of fumigation, and those comprising the fourteenth schedule represent parasitic fungi, which are regarded as susceptible to treatment with fungicides, their names, exceeding 100, have been omitted from the list.
For convenience of reference, the names of the pests and fungi included in the thirteenth and fifteenth schedules have been rearranged and revised by listing them alphabetically under their scientific names, corrected in accordance with the most recent determinations, and supplemented by the common names, if any, recognized in the United States, followed by those used in New Zealand, if they differ. These names are prefixed by the letter "a" to represent those included in the thirteenth schedule and by the letter "b" as representing those in the fifteenth schedule.
Shipments of plants and plant products infected or infested by any of the diseases and pests named in the following list should not be certified for exportation to New Zealand:

QUARANTINE AND OTHER OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENTS

ANNOUNCEMENTS RELATING TO DATE-PALM SCALE QUARANTINE
(NO. 6)

DATE-PALM SCALE QUARANTINE REVOKED

(Press notice)
JUNE 19, 19-30.
The apparent eradication of the date-palm scale has led Secretary of Agriculture Wallace to revoke the Federal date-palm scale quarantine (no. 6), effective July 1, 1936. Under the quarantine, which was promulgated in March 1913", the interstate movement of date palms and date-palmn offshoots was regulated from certain areas in California, Arizona, and Texas on account of the Parlatoria scale, an injurious date-palm scale insect.

42 BUREAU OF ENTOMOLOGY AND PLANT QUARANTINE [April-June

Eradication of this pest, which has been the subject of aL vigorous eradication campaign coiiducted cooperatively by the affected States and the United States Department of Agriculture for a nuinber of years, has apparently now been detected, as intensive inspection of the previously infested areas has revealed no infestation since 1934, the infestation at that time being extremely light. It is theref, re believed that domestic quarantine restrictions may be removed with resIpect to the Parlatoria scale with safety to the date-growing areas.
NOTICE OF LIFTING OF DATE-PALM SCALE QUARANTINE
(Effective on and after July 1, 1936)
The fact has been determined by the Secretary'of Agriculture, as a result of intensive field inspection work, that there is, at the present time, no known infestation in the States of Arizona, California, and Texas or elsewhere in the continental United States by the Parlatoria scale (Parlatoria blanchairdi), and it is the belief of the I)epartment that Notice of Quarantine No. 6, on account of the Parlatoria scale (Parlatoria blanchardi) and the Phoenicococcus scale (PhoevicococciUs Itarlatti), with regulations, which was promulgated March 1, 1913, and which became effective on March 24, 1913, as well as amendment no. 1 thereto, promulgated November 18, 1932, which eliminated all reference in the quarantine and regulations to the Phoenicococcus scale, m'ay now be removed with safety to the country as a whole.
Now, therefore, I, H. A. Wallace, Secretary of Agriculture, under authority conferred by the Plant Quarantine Act, approved August 20, 1912 (37 Stat. 315), as amended by the act of Congress approved March 4, 1917 (39 Stat. 1134, 1165), do hereby remove and revoke the quarantine placed by said Notice of Quarantine No. 6 and the amendment thereto upon the States of Arizona, California, and Texas, and do also hereby remove and revoke the rules and regulations supplemental thereto, such removal and revocation to take effect on July 1, 1936.
Done at the city of Washington this 11th day of June 1936.
Witness my hand and the seal of the United States Department of Agriculture.

In connection with the order of the Ministry of Agriculture, Industry, and Commerce, no. 624, of March 1, 1932, concerning a list of diseases and enemies of plant cultures, against which Spain especially desires to be protected, and to which certificates issued by the French phytopathological service are to be adjusted with respect to shipments of living plants directed to Spain: This ministry has resolved to transmit the list of insects, fungi, and bacteria whose presence in consignments of pliant products from any source, which are shipped to Spain, or whose existence in the countries of origin will determine the prohibition of the importation of the plants, their fruits, seeds, or parts which those parasites attack, and of articles that may serve as vehicles of infection.
Certificates of official phytopathological services of the various countries tlit export plant products and living plants to Spain must affirm the nonexistence in the respective country of the diseases or pests caused by the agencies named in the said list.
List of insets., fungi, and bacteria whose presence in consignments of plants and plant products exported to Spain or whose existence in the countries of origin will determine the prohibition of the plants, their fruits, seeds, or parts which those parasites attack, and materials that may serve as vehicles of infection.

RESTRICTIONS ON THE ENTRY OF FRESH FRUJITS

Certification of freedom from ,San~ Jose scale required

By derogation of the prohibition to enter fresh fruits into France from the above-named countries and the United States, in which San Jose scale is known to occur, the importation is authorized of certain categories of fruits maintained in the countries of origin in such a manner as to give every assurance that they are not carriers of Aspidiotus perniciosus, under the conditions and through the customs offices authorized by the Minister of Agriculture.

Plants and fresh fruits from countries not infested by San Jose scale

Each shipment must be accompanied by a certificate of origin issued by a competent administrative authority of the country of origin. If there is occasion toi do so, orders of the Ministry of Agriculture will indicate the plants and parts of plants for which such a certificate is not required (decree of Apr. 5, 1933).

CONDITIONS OF ENTRY

The decree of March 15, 19 32, regulating that of March 8, 1932, as modified by the ministerial orders of April 8, May 9, June 23, August 2, and November 2, 1932, prescribes:
ARTICLE 1. The entry into France of fresh fruits originating in and proceeding from Argentina, Australia, Austria, Canada, Chile, China, Hawaii, Hungary, Japan, Mexico, Portugal, New Zealand, Rumania, Union of South Af rica, and the United States of America, is authorized on condition(a) That the products are accompanied by a phkytosanitary inspection certificate, issued by competent authority of the country of origin, absolutely guaranteeing that the fruits are not carriers of San Jose scale.

PHYLLOXERA RESTRICTIONS

Since the decree of March 8, 1932, prohibits the importation into France of living plants or parts thereof from countries infested by San Jose scale, the phylloxera restrictions do not concern those countries insofar as living plants or parts thereof are concerned. The phylloxera regulations, do not restrict the importation of seeds, but special restrictions are imposed on the importation of clover and grass seeds.

IMPORTATION OF POTATOES PROH1131TED

(Decree of July 13, 1922, art. 1)
The entry into and transit through France is prohibited of potatoes and leaves and refuse of that plant coming directly or indirectly from the United States of America, a country in which the existence of the Colorado potato beetle (Leptinotarsa deceinlincata Say) has been determined. The prohibition extends to cases, barrels, sacks, and other containers serving or having served to transport the above muent ioned products.

IMPORTATION OF INFESTED PLANTS AND FRUITS PROHIBITED

The same prohibition is applicable to shipments of fruits amid of plants other than potatoes, leaves, and refuse of that plant, as well as to material that has served to transport or contain them, when the presence of Leptinotarsa decemntlineata is determined in the said shipments. To that end they are subjected on their entry into France to a special examination.
(Since the importation of potatoes from the United States is prohibited on account of the Colorado potato beetle, the restrictions on account of potato wart (Syncliytrium endo~boticuz (Schilb.) Perc.) are omitted.)

RESTRICTlION13 ON THE; IMPORTATION OF SEEDS

Although article 2 of the Phylloxera Convention of Berne, Novemiber 3. 1881, provides for the importation of seeds without restriction from. the standpoint of phylloxera, certain classes of seeds are placed under restriction to prevent the introduction of dodder (Cuscuta spp.).

IMPORTATION OF DODDER SEEDS PROHIBITED
(Decree of Feb. 21. 1908)
The importation into France of seeds of the plant parasite, doddler (Cuscuta spp.), is prohibited.
That prohibition applies also to forage-crop seeds that upon inspection are found to contain dodder seeds; especially alfalfa (Med iccigo sativa L.), red

not packed with plants of class A, and that inspection by a technical official at the port of entry does not establish any infestation or suspicion of infestation with San Jose scale.
(C. importation unrestricted: Until further notice, except as prohibited by other regulations (for example, importation of potatoes and diseased flower bulbs and tubers is prohibited) all subterranean parts of plants, all kinds of seeds (except those prohibited by special quarantines), tropical fruits (except citrus fruits), cereals, and vegetables for food and as luxuries, drugs and technical raw nmterial for medicinal purposes, and raw material for technical manufacture.
Shipments that include plants of the different groups are subject, in their entirety, to the conditions of the most restricted group.
For plants of group A the right is reserved, in individual cases, for special reasons, to permit exceptions to the import prohibition, when guaranties are given against the introduction of San Jose scale.
The provisions of these regulations apply to living plants and fresh parts thereof, but not to fruit, brought in as baggage by passengers (travelers).

Frcsh mushrooms placed i. class C

The order of November 17, 1934; Z 1101---681 II, prescribes that fresh mushrooms are to be regarded as vegetables for food purposes in the sense of group C of the circular of November 26, 1931. Consequently that product is exempt from the import prohibitions of the decree of November 3, 1931, as amended.

Importation permitted only through authorized ports

The importation of living plants and fresh parts thereof, insofar as it is permitted, may be effected only through customs offices that have been authorized for the entry of fruit.'
2. IMPORTATION OF FRESH DECIDUOUS FRUITS AND FRESH REFUSE OF SUCH FRUITS
Inspection of imported fruits
The inspection of imported fruits for the presence of San Jose scale (Aspidiotus perniciosus Comst.) and apple maggot (Rhagoletis pomonella Walsh) is to be carried out in accordance with "Instructions for the inspection of plants, fruits, and potatoes on entry", as presented in the circular of July 1, 1931-I1 40305. The inspection may be entrusted only to technical specialists who have had thorough instruction in the microscopic characteristics of San Jose scale.
Dried fruits unrestricted
Dried fruits of any kind, and dried refuse of fruits, regardless of the degree of desiccation, are not subject to the provisions of this decree, nor do they apply to fruit brought in by passengers as baggage for their own needs during the journey (as amended by the circular of January 31, 1934-I1: 2242).
The so-called southern fruits, including raisins, pineapples, bananas, etc., are not to be regarded as fruit in the sense of this decree. Citrus fruits are now placed under the same restrictions as deciduous fruits.

COLORADO POTATO BEETLE QUARANTINE
(Decree of Feb. 26, 1875)
Importation from the United States into Germany is prohibited of potatoes, potato peelings, and other potato refuse, as well as of sacks and other containers that have been used for packing potatoes. This prohibition does not apply to potatoes carried on vessels as ships' stores.
The importation of dried potatoes also is prohibited (order of Mar. 8, 1900).
The importation of sweelpotatoes is not restricted (order of Aug. 19, 1906).
The importation and transit of living Colorado potato beetles, at any stage of their life history, are prohibited. The Minister of Nourishment and Agriculture can permit exceptions from this prohibition (decree of Oct. 7, 1932; R. G. BIl., I: 69, 1932, p. 49G).
