require ments as to cotton linters, cottonseed hulls, cak, a',nd ;ieal, and extending the area in which baled
cotton lint may he moved from~ certoi. n lightly infested areas in New Mexico and Tex,s without treAment
Aeininietrp.tive instructions issued Ma~rch 30, 1939.(circulp~r B. E. P. Q. 493) modified the treatment requirements for~ the -Ank bollworm as to 'balad lint an. linters and pro ducts thereof, and, also as to c-~tto)nseed hulls, c-Ake, and meal when moved inters-tfte from certain counties in northwestern Texas nd6 from Len and Roosevelt Counties, N. Mex. At the time this action was ta-)ken, it wns hopK.ed that clirritic conditions unfrnvo;r:ble to the development of the pink boollworm, plus control -'nd regulr% tiry Pctivities, would- result inslininaition of the pink boollwormn in northwest Texas rand adjacent areas in New Maxice. However, infest,.' ions h, ve persiste. in such area s and s'rread to ad-' ition,-l counties to the s outh nnd southea ,st, Therefore, it is considered necessary t ) restore the restrictions previously in effect so' that linters, co ttonseed hulls, cake, nand nmeal sh-n-11 be produced, as a condAition of interstate moveme nt from such areas, fron steri-. lized seerl, or in the c,,.se of lin~ters, other rwise tre, ted as specified in quarantine reg7.ilatio'ns. Bled cotton lint, however, nay, under the current instructions, continue to 'ba shi-,,-,erI from the desinAte'. area, without the treatment formerly roqure'.
The purposes of th',. present revisim) of th-- iv!_rinistr:ativ7e instructions are therefore (1) to) return t-, th, trcatmcnt requiram-.nlnts of prwahs(a) and (c) of revelation 14, in :hipnir- cotton linters, cottonseed hlulls, cake, and meal, and (2) to extend the area from which it is considere-d safe to remove treatment requirements for baled cotton lint, by ad;ding_ the Texas counties of Concho, Irion, Mitchell, Sterling, Tom Grun, nd the regul.tced part of Coke County.
