NOTICES REGARDING MEAT INSPECTION.
IMPROPER MARKING OF CONTAINERS OF INEDIILLE GREASE.
It has come to the attention of the bureau that at some establishments cold-water
paint has been employed in markiing the ends o~f t ierces servings as coat Li ners of inedible
grease or other inedible rendered fat. Since the requirements outlined in Sectiojn 9,
Regulation 16, B. A. I. Order 211, contemplate durable markinug, the- use olf cold-wa~ter
paint does not meet the reluiremnents. Insp~ectors will give this matter careful atten-
tion and see that the requirements are properly colmplied with.
SU~~PREM COURT DECISIONS CONSTRUl~C~ING MT-LNSi'ECTION ACT.
At the present term of the Supreme Court of the United States three decisions of
great importance hav\e been rendleered construing the prvisions of the Meatt-Inspetction
Act. The firs t was given in th e case of the Pi tt sburgh Mielt ingr Co. versus G E Tol'rttern,
nspector.,,, of the bureau,, whichwas rougt in the western district of Pennsylvania to
restrain the inspector from interf~ering wCith the interstate and foreign shipment of
ojlea oil, the company contendlingr that the oil is not a meat foodll product and therefore
not subject to the provisions of the meat-inspection alaw. On November~i 4, 1918, the
Supreme Court heldl, in effect, that 01eo oil is a meat food product within the meaning
of the law, is subject to, the regnultionls of the Secretary of Agriculture under the act,
and that thle interjtate an~d foreign shipment of the same for industrial purposes was
unlawful unless thle product wTas denatured as required by the! regulation.
Thec econdl decision wpas rendered on April 14, 1919, in the case of David F. H~ouston,
A. Mlvin, andl Jmes J. Brougiham versus St. Louis Independ~ent Paclking Co.
This case, known as the "'Sausage case~, in volved the validity of the regrulatiojn pro-
hibiting the use in sausage of cereasl in excess of 2 per cent, and water or ice in excess
of 3 per ce~nt. The pack~ing: company LlUSlugt to compel the department's officials to
ma rk as Inspected and passed the product manufactured by it anld called" Sa1usage "
containing cereal and water in excess of the amounts specified in the regulation. The
department claimedl that the use of the word '"Sausage'" on such a product was false-
and deceptive, and declined to mzark it as "Inspected and passed." The District
Court f.,r thie Easternl District of Mlissouri upheld the contention of the department,
b t cr i nr f pel er t dcso t ti cutCourt, however. susrtainedl the position taken by the department by deciding that the
Secretalry of Agricultur~e in promulgating the regulation referred to acted on sub-
stantial evidence and with sufficient reason in curnrlud~ing that persons p'urchansing or
using as "Sarusage"' the pack~ingr conimpany' compounl o;f var;iousl me~lts, cereal, and
water would be lec~eived as to~ its comnpasition and as to its va;lue as a fliodi product, and
that it was not an abuse of discretion to, prohibit the use of the word- ''Sausagre" as
applied to it, rather than to prescribe qualifying terms excplanatolry of it.
The third decision was rendleredl on April 21, 1919, in thle case of James J. D~rougham
and Arthur N. Stank~ey vencus B~lanton Mannufacturing Co. This case involved the
company's use of the word "Creiamo" in co~nnertiojn with i:s labje! on relemnargairin.
The company had secured a trade-mark on t~he wrordl. The dlepartment originally
approved the use of the word on the product of the company, which at that timie,
however, continued 30 per cent of creim. Subsequently~ no cream wais used in the
manufacture of the produce t and the department thereup~on withdrew~ it.; approval of
the label beiringr the wordi "Crelmo"' without qualification, on the ground that its use
would be deceptive. The company then appliedl for an injunction to prevent thle
insnpetors of the dlepartment fnrom interfer~ing with the company in the use of the
word upon packragres of its product Ihipped in interstate commerce, colntendling that
the product was not subject to the provisions of the melt-inspection law, but rather
was wFithin the terms of the oleomargarin act. Both the District Court for the Eastern
District of Missouri and the Circuit Court of Appeals sustained the views of the com-
BUREAU OF ANIMVAL INDUSTRY,
pa~ny. The Sup~reme Courtt however, in reversing the lower courts held, in effect,
that the action of the department in withdrawing its.approval of the label o~f the com-
p~any on the product, was proper and within its power under the law, and that. the use
of the word "Crea~mo" without quallication on the product was false and deceptive.
The Supremn Oturt also Fustained~ the right of the Secretary of Agriculture to withdraw
hlis app~lroval olfl a~P ~labelwh it may~S ber false or deceptive. The court Efurther held, in
effect, that a 'rade-mar~k do~es not protect the manufact~urer whlen it, is used on a product
mlanufattur~ed and- shipped in inte~rstate commerce contrary to the provisions ofI the
meat-in p-ction~ lacw.
LABELING HYDROGENATED LARD.
Attention is invited: to the~ ruling in Sprvice Annoulncements of Augrust 15, 1913,
ulnder the captioln "Lab.~els for Compounds Containing Stearin from (ottonseePd Oil."
It now appears that a hydrogelnated lard is to be pre~pared fromt lard by treating it
wFithl hydrogen and consi~stent woith the ruling abov-e referred to, the normal et~earin
ob~taine~d from natural lord by~ pre~ring: should be designated ''Lard Stearin,' while
hydrogenated lard which is a stesrin obtained from lard by treating the lanl~ with
hy!droge~n should be designated "S~tearin made from Liard." Under the pro~visions of
laragraph 5, section 93, regulation 17. set forth in Amendment 7i to B. A. I. Order 211,
lar may havec Pdded thereto Ilord stearin without the presence of added stearin being
shown on thE Ilabl. Since lanrd Ftearin differs malteriallyv from hyrdrogeunated lard it
is requ~ired that w\hetn hydarognated1 lard is added to lard there shall appear on the
label co~ntigneur "to and in thel same size and sty~le of lettering as the nam~e of the
promduct, the starment "Stcar~in made From L~ardl dded."
Since lardi itse~lf is a meat food pmrodct thle operation of hy!drogenation must be
c~rried out under Federal mea t i inspection. Hy~drogecnated lard leaving official estab-
lishments so~e su~ch Fshould b>e labe1~, led"tearin mrade From Lard," and inspetors
are cautioned to obsecrv~e carrefully thle labeling of lardT stearin and stear~in ma~de from
lard, in order to avoid c~onfursion and preclurde mislabeling of prodnelts containing
eithler of these fals avi: nrred ientIs.

REQUIREMENTS FOR LABELING VETERINARY BIOLOGICS.
Establishments manufacturing' tuberculin under a United States veterinary Ticense
should cause trade labels used on packages or containers of this product to show the
amount of Koch's old tuberculin (0. T.) contained in each cubic centimeter of the
product as marketed. This shall appear in substantially the following~ form: "'1 c. c.
equals 0.2 gram Koch's old tuberculin."! Further, such labels shall bear recom-
mendations regarding the minimum dose to be adlministered, which dose shall be not
less than the equivalent of 0.5 gram of Koch's old tub~erculin. Thus if the product
as marketed contains 0.1 gram Koch's old tuberc~ulin per cubic centimleter, not less
than 5 cubic centimeters should be recommended as a dose for testing cattle. Until
labels can b~e procured in conformityr with this requirement thle amount of K~och's
old tuberculin contained in each cubic centimeter should be stamped upon approved
labels, in the form set fourth ab~ove.
Trade labels alltixed to, or used in connection with, containers of vete~rinary bio-
logical products when feasible should b~ear the formula u~sed in manufacturing: the
product involved; i. e., the organismsi or antigens used should be indicated. Whaen
such products are composed of organisms in suspension the approximate number of
each organ ism con tained in am cubic centimeterr of the product as marketed should also
be indicated. All trade labela.of .sufficient size shall bear appropriate instructions,
stating for wFhat disease or condition and in what manner the product should be used.
If these inst ructions mlust be too brief. for clearness, a reference should be made on. the
label as to wrheite full instructions inay' be found, e, g., "Directions inclosed"' will be
satisfactory. The provisions of thEis pslaragrap will not apply to present stocks of

NEW~ SCHEDULE OF RATIONS FOR LIVE STOCK' IN INTERSTATE TRANS-
At the time of the recent annual conference of the American National Live Stock
Association at Denv~er, Colo., department officials conferredl withl re-resent~atives of
the American National Live Stock Associastion, National Live Stock Shippers Pro-
tective League, National Live Stock Exchlange, Packers Traftie Com~mittee, and the
Railroad Administration, concerning the prlopcr muiinimum rations to, be fedl live stock
unloaded for feed, water, and rest under the pro~visions of the Twenty-eciglt-Hroulr
The recommendations of the conference committee hiave b~en approved by~ thle
Secretary and~lhave bleen incorporated in thle followr.ing letter, issue~ld from his office
under date of A pril1 23, set ting fort h the dlepa rt men t's v~iews as to t he m ini m um requ aire-
ments of thle law:
THE FEEDING, WYATERING, AND RESTING OF LIVE STOCK~ IN COURSE OF NINTERSTATE
Inl order to avoid the difficulie--s exup~enriene by3 tranllportationu compnianis shippIers,
and others, in computing the amouints of feed which should be given to animals whlile
in the course of interstate transportation, the 11ureau of Animal Industry, in con-
nection with the enforcement of the Twecnty-eight-Hour Lawr (3-1 Stalt., G007) hias
given further consideration to the feeding, watering, and wresting of cat tle, sheep,
swine, and other animals, and hias delorrmined that the use- of a carload as a unit b.asis,
raLther than the hundredweighit of animal, is a more satisfactory meth~od for' arrivinga
at the amount of feed which should b~e givenI to ther animals.
As a result, the conclusion has b~een reached that. the hlandling of animals in ne-
cordance withi the suggestion outlined below will meet the aiew of the Departmient
of Agriculture as to the minimum reqluirements of the law.
HoesM and mnules: Not less than 200 pounods of hay, or its equivanlent, per~ car.
Cattle: Not lcess than 200 pounds olf hay, or its eqluivalent, pesr car.
Sheep or goante: Not less Ihan1 100 pounds of hay, or its eqivii\alent, per deck.
Swine: Not less than 2 bulshels of she~llccd corn, or its equlivalentt in ear coml or
other grain, per single-deck car of no~t more thian 1 ,00)0 poiiund weight; noit less
than 24 bJushels of shielled corn, or its eqluivalesnt in ear corn or otheri grain, pier
doublel-deck car of not more than 21,000 pounds we-ighlt.
Carload lots of hogs in excess of these w~eight should b~e fed an addiiional
amount in the same proportion.
Animals shipped in lots less than at ca~rblarl shouj~ld be ifed a p~ro raita amou~nt
based on the above~ figures.
40 BUREAU OF ANIMAL INDUSTRY, [April,
Calves too young to eat hay or grain and shipped alone should be given a
sua~cient amount of some suitable feed, such as milk -or raw eggs.
The rations above indicated are to be given each time the animals are fed to
comply with the provisions of the law.
The only practicable methods for railroads to transport animals, other than hogas,
without unloading during each period prescribed by the statute for rest, water, and
feeding, are in "~palace" or similar stock cars and with emigrant outfits. There are
cases in which exceptional facilities complying with the law make unloading unneces-
sary; for instance, specially equipped cars conveying show animals and blooded
stock. In such cases care should be taken to observe the law. In all cases, if animals
are not unloaded, sufficient space to permit all the animals to lie down in the cars at
the same time must be provided.
Bogs may be fed, watered, and rested without unloading, provided (a) the cars are
loaded so as to allow all the animals to~ have sufficient space to lie down at the same
time, (b) the trains are stopped for sufficient thne to allow the watering troughs to be
prepared and to allow every hog time to drink his fill, and (c) care is exercised to dis-
tribute properly through each car deck sufficient shelled corn, or its equivalent in
ear corn or other grain, for each hog.
All pens into which animals are unloaded must contain adequate facilities for
feeding and watering and suitable space on whiich the animals can lie down com-
fortab~ly for resting. Covered pens should be provided for unloading animal in severe

STREET-CAR FARES FOR EMPLOYEES RECEIVING PER DIE111 ALLOW-
ANCE IN LIEU OF SUBSISTENCE.
Under date of M~arch 29, 1919, the Comptroller of the Treasury rendered a decision
concerning street-car fares incurred by employees who receive a per diem allowance
in lieu of reimbursement for subsistence. The effect of this decision is to modify
materiallyr the instructions from1 the Auditor for' the State and Other Departments
whiich were printed on pago 8 of Service and Regulatory Announcements for January,
Under the abov~e-mentionedl decision the comptroller makes a clear. distinction
between street-car fares expended by employees in goings from hotels to various places
of offcial business and return, while making their hotels or other temp~orary places of
abjode their heatdquarters, and street-car fares expelnded in going fIrorn such temporary
headquarters to a certain place regularly every day and return therefrom to their
hotels or other temporary places of abode. In the former cases the car fares may be
allowred, but in the latter cases such fares are not reimursable.
InI order that t he b ureau, as well as t he A udi tor for the Stat e and Other Departments,
may determine to which of these two c~lasses charges for street-car fares pertain, it
w~ill be necessary for employees to indicate in timir accounts in connection with
each and every charge therefor the points between which the street cars were used,
the name of the individual or fu-m, the building or business house, and the street
address v-isitedc; also that the trip w~as on investiga~tionll1, statistically, regulatory, or
inspection work, etc., as thle case may be, for example as followsu:
'Januiary 8, street-car fares, hotel to Bond Buildingn anld return, invecstigational
work,, 10 cenit= Janluary 9, street-car fares, hotel to John Smith andl Company, 1222
Gira~rd Avenue, and return, regulatory work, 10 cents."
EmployIees who re~ceive a per diom allowa~nce in -lieu of reimbursement for sub-
sistence should study these instructions carefully in order that they mayr have a clear
understandingr of them. It is e~s ential that there be a strict compliance therewithl
so as to obviate suspensions, further correspondnce, and delay in the settlement of
their travel accounts.
TRANSPORTATION REQUESTS TO BE USED ONLY ON STRICTLY OFFI-
Recently the bureau's attention has been called to instances in which employees
have used Government transportation requests for travel, the cost of which was to be
borne by private concerns and individuals, or for combined official and personal
travel in connection writh trips where emp!oyees deviated from the direct route or
stopped over en route for personal reasons and thereby incurred transportation and
Pullman expense ini excess of what would have been :neurred had there been no
dev~iation or stop>-ovcr. Such use of t~ransportation requests is prohibited.
Employees of the bureau therefore will be guided in the future by the following
1. Under no circumstances may a transportation request be used for travel on
personal or private business. (See paragraph 89, Fiscal Regulations, Dec. 1, 1917.) :
SERVICE AND REGULATORY ANNOUNCEMENTS..
2. When an employee begins a trip whlichl he knows will involved persotnal t~ravel,
he mlay use a transportation request for Po much thle-rof as relates to G~overnment
business, but he must pay cash fare, p~lus l!ear taJ, for anly p.ult of the trip which relaztej
to ~persoal or private bus.inecss.
3. W~hen an employee perflormls travel of a ~emioffic~ial naturec, such as coopetativez
work wrhere the expenses w-ill be paid by a priva.te imllividuall or firml, he shIould pa&y
cash fare, plus the w1ar tax requgi:~re.
4. Under the internatl-re~venue lawr a w'ar taxs of 3 per cents ii requ~~ilc red for transporta-
tion and 10 per cent for Pullmann or other thain atrictly ollicial business~~ of the Govecrn--
ment. This taxt must be paidl at the timec the tic-ket ise purchased andii whnci the
traveler failj to pay hec is liable to a penalty imrposed undcir the law. The practice
of the bureau heretofore hlaa beenl to adlviae employee.< of the amount of war tax thatt
has boon evaded and request a remlittance covering same to Ibe cint to the Inlternal
Revenue Collector. Thiis practice will be discontinued~ with the i33uance of these
instructions, leaving onl employees liability to penalizationl~ for thle evasionl of pay-
mentC of the wair tax.
5. Rureau employees who muay have occasion to- travel shlO~~d fam~iliaiize themu-
selve~s w:ith these i nst ructions andiL see t o it that there is a St ici.t I omplPianICC t herewithl .
Failulre to observe these instructions may! r;!sult in the enltiret ictem !'-;bein disallsowed

1910.J SERVICE AND REGULATORY ANNOUNCEMENTS. 33NOTICES REGARDING MEAT INSPECTION.IMPROPER MARKING OF CONTAINERS OF INEDIBLE GREASE.It has come to the attention of the bureau that at some establishments cold-waterpainthas been employed in marking the ends of tierces serving as containers of inediblegrease or other inedible rendered fat. Since the requirements outlined in Section 9,Regulation 16, B. A. I. Order 211, contemplate durable marking, the use of cold-waterpaint does not meet the requirements. Inspectors will give this matter careful atten-tion and see that the requirements are properly complied with.SUPREME COURT DECISIONS CONSTRUING MEAT-INSI'ECTION ACT.At the present term of the Supreme Court of the United SU&tes three decisions ofgreat importance have been rendered construing the provisions of the Meat-ispectionAct. The first was given in the case of the Pittsburgh Melting Co. versus C. E. Gotten,nspector of the bureau, which was brought in the western district of Pennsylvania torestrain the inspector from interfering with the interstate and foreign shipment ofoleo oil, the company contending that the oil is not a meat food product and thereforenot subject to the provisions of the meat-inspection law. On November 4, 1918, theSupreme Court held, in effect, that oleo oil is a meat food product witbini the meaningof the law, is subject to the regulations of the Secretary of Agricultule under the act,and that the interstate and foreign shipment of the same for industrial purposes wasunlawful unless the product was denatured as required by the regulation. The second decision was rendered on April 14, 1919, in the case of David F. Houston,A. D. Melvin, and James J. Brougham versus St. Louis Independent Packing Co.This case, known as the "Sausage" case, involved the validity of the regulation pro-hibiting the use in sausage of cereal in excess of 2 per cent, and water or ice in excessof 3 per cent. The packing company sought to compel the department's officials tomark as "Inspected and passed " the product manufactured by it and call " Snusagecontaining cereal and water in excess of the amounts specified in the regual ion. Thedepartment claimed that the use of the word "Sausage" on such a product was falseand deceptive, and declined to mark it as "Inspected and passed." The DistrictCourt for the E sstern District of Missouri upheld the contention of the department,but the circuit court of appeals reversed the decision of the trial court. The SupremeCourt, however, sustained the position taken by the department by deciding that theSecretary of Agriculture in promulgating the regulation referred to acted on sub-stantial evidence and with sufficient reason in concluding that persons purciasing orusing as "Saussage" the packing company's compound of various meats, cereal, andwater would be deceived as to its composition and as to its value as a food product, andthat it was not an abuse of discretion to prohibit the use of the word "Sausage" asapplied to it, rather than to prescribe qualifying terms explanatory of it.The third decision was rendered on April 21, 1919, in the case of James J. Iroughamand Arthur N. Stankey versus Blanton Manufacturing Co. This ca-e involved thecompany's use of the word "Creamo" in connection with its label on oleomargarin.The company had secured a trade-mark on the word. The department originallyapproved the use of the word on the product of the company, which at that time,however, contained 30 per cent of cream. Subsequently no cream was used in themanufacture of the product and the department thereupon withdrew its approval ofthe label bearing the word "Creamo " without qualification, on the ground that its use would be deceptive. The company then applied for an injunction to prevent theinspectors of the department from interfering with the company in the use of theword upon packages of its product shipped in interstate commerce, contending thattile product was not subject to the provisions of the meit-inspection law, but ratherwas within the terms of the oleomargarin act. Both the District Court for the EasternDistrict of Missouri and the Circuit Court of Appeals sustained the views of the coin-
34 BUREAU OF ANIMAL INDUSTRY. [April,pany. The Supreme Court, however, in reversing the lower courts held, in effect,that the action of the department in withdrawing its approval of the label of the com-pany on the product was pr per and within its power under the law, and that the useof the word "Creamo" without qualification on the product was false and deceptive.The SupvemCourt alo suaained the right of the Secrethry of Agriculture to withdrawhis approval of 8 lalbel when it may be faise or deceptive. The court further held, inetufot, that .1 tradQ-mark does not prtceet the manufacturer when it is used Ol a pjrnductmianul < tured I an1.shipped in inte-Stae conmemCee contrary to the provisions (f theLABELING HYDROGENATED LAIRD.A teltion it il l iu-d to the ruling in Servkee Announcemoenits of AuguK 1-. 1913,under the (-aption ah for Compounds Containing Stearin from Cotto-'--ed Oil."It now appc-lro that a hydrogenated lard is to be prepared from lard by treating itwith hydirogen and consistent with the ruling above referred to, the normal stearinobtained from natural lard by presing should be designated "Lard Stearin," whilehydroenate.i lard which is a stearin obtained from lard by treating the lard withi-drogen should he di-ignotrd "Stearin made from Lard."

T.) contained in each cubic centimeter of theproduct as marketed. This shall appear in substantially the following form: "1 c. c.equals 0.2 gram Koch's old tuberculin.' Further, such labels shall bear recom-mendations regarding the minimum dose to be administered, which dose shall be notless than the equivalent of 0.5 gram of Koch's old tuberculin. Thus if the productas marketed contains 0.1 gram Koch's old tuberculin per cubic centimeter, not lessthan 5 cubic centimeters should be recommended as a dose for testing cattle. Untillabels can be procured in conformity with this requirement the amount of Koch'sold tuberculin contained in each cubic centimeter should be stamped upon approvedlabels, in the form set forth above.Trade labels affixed to, or used in connection with, containers of veterinary biological products when feasible should bear the formula used in manufacturing theproduct involved; i. e., the organisms or antigens used should be indicated.

Animals shipped in lots less than a carload should be fed a pro rata amountbased on the above figures.
40 BUREAU OF ANIMAL INDUSTRY. [April,Calves too young to eat hay or grain and shipped alone should be given asufficient amount of some suitable feed, such as milk or raw eggs.The rations above indicated are to be given each time the animals are fed tocomply with the provisions of the law.UNLOADING.The only practicable methods for railroads to transport animals, other than hogs,without unloading during each period prescribed by the statute for rest, water, andfeeding, are in "palace" or similar stock cars and with emigrant outfits. There arecases in which exceptional facilities complying with the law make unloading unnecessary; for instance, specially equipped cars conveying show animals and blooded stock. In such cases care should be taken to observe the law. In all cases, if animalsare not unloaded, sufficient space to permit all the animals to lie down in the cars atthe same time must be provided.Hogs may be fed, watered, and rested without unloading, provided (a) the cars areloaded so as to allow all the animals to have sufficient space to lie down at the sametime, (b) the trains are stopped for sufficient time to allow the watering troughs to beprepared and to allow every hog time to drink his fill, and (c) care is exercised to dis-tribute properly through each car deck sufficient shelled corn, or its equivalent inear corn or other grain, for each hog.UNLOADING PENS.All pens into which animals are unloaded must contain adequate facilities forfeeding and watering and suitable space on which the animals can lie down com-fortably for resting.

42 BUREAU OF ANIMAL INDUSTRY. [April,rendering and approving such vouchers in favor of firms and corporations are directedto see that the vouchers are stated in the name of the firm or corporation instead ofthe agent or manager thereof.When any firm or corporation has once rendered a bill against the department, payment of which has been made on Form 5 voucher, all future bills in favor of thatparticular firm or corporation should be stated in exactly the same name.STREET-CAR FARES FOR EMPLOYEES RECEIVING PER DIEM ALLOW-ANCE IN LIEU OF SUBSISTENCE.Under date of March 29, 1919, the Comptroller of the Treasury rendered a decisionconcerning street-car fares incurred by employees who receive a per diem allowancein lieu of reimbursement for subsistence. The effect of this decision is to modifymaterially the instructions from the Auditor for the State and Other Departmentswhich were printed on page 8 of Service and Regulatory Announcements for January,1919.Under the above-mentioned decision the comptroller makes a clcar distinctionbetween street-car fares expended by employees in going from hotels to various placesof official business and return, while making their hotels or other temporary places ofabode their headquarters, and street-car fares expended in going from such temporaryheadquarters to a certain place regularly every day and return therefrom to theirhotels or other temporary places of abode. In the former cases the car fares may beallowed, but in the latter cases such fares are not reimbursable.In order that the bureau, as well as the Auditor for the State and Other Departments,may determine to which of these two classes charges for street-car fares pertain, itwill be necessary for employees to indicate in their accounts in connection witheach and every charge therefor the points between which the street cars were used,the name of the individual or firm, the building or business house, and the streetaddress visited; also that the trip was on investigational, statistics, regulatory, orinspection work, etc., as the case may be, for example as follows:"January 8, street-car fares, hotel to Bond Building and return, investigationalwork, 10 cents. January 9, street-car fares, hotel to John Smith and Company, 1222Girard Avenue, and return, regulatory work, 10 cents."Employees who receive a per diem allowance in lieu of reimbursement for sub-sistence should study these instructions carefully in order that they may have a clearunderstanding of them. It is es-ential that there be a strict compliance therewithso as to obviate suspensions, further correspondence, and delay in the settlement oftheir travel accounts.TRANSPORTATION REQUESTS TO BE USED ONLY ON STRICTLY OFFI-CIAL BUSINESS.Recently the bureau's attention has been called to instances in which employeeshave used Government transportation requests for travel, the cost of which was to beborne by private concerns and individuals, or for combined official and personaltravel in connection with trips where employees deviated from the direct route orstopped over en route for personal reasons and thereby incurred transportation and Pullman expense in excess of what would have been :ncurred had there been nodeviation or stop-over. Such use of transportation requests is prohibited.Employees of the bureau therefore will be guided in the future by the followinginstructions:1. Under no circumstances may a transportation request be used for travel onpersonal or private business. (See paragraph 89, Fiscal Regulations, Dec. 1, 1917.)
191.J SERVICE AND REGULATORY ANNOUNCEMENTS. 432. When an employee begins a trip whi(h he knows will involve personal Iravel,li myv use a transportation request for so much thereof as relates to Governmentbusiness, but he must pay cash fare, pls rar tax, for any part of the trip which relat'ito pt'tieriJal or private businels.3. Vhen an employee performs Iravel of a semioflicial at ure, such as coopeatlivework where the expense's will ibe paid by a pri ate individual or irm, he should paycash fare, plus the war ian req ired.4. Under the interna-revenue iaw a 'ar tax of4 par cont is re quired for transporta-tion and 10 per cent for Pullman or other than si t'ic ly' ofilcial business of the Cover-ment. This tax must be paid at the time the lickeI i, purcha ed :til when thetraveler fails to pay h e is liable to a penahlyv mpod iundr the law. The practiceof the bureau heretofore has been to advise Qmploy(is of thP a ;ount of war tax thathas been evaded and request a remittance cuverinsame to 1-e c tit the InernalRevenue Collector. This practice will be discontinuet I with the issue ance of theseinstrucrionvS, leaving on employees liability to penalizifat isn for the evasion of pay-ment of the war tax.5. liureau employees who may have occaion to travel should familiarize them-selvc3 vnith these instructions and see to it t hat thire 1sa t1its omplin, Iaherewith.Failure to observe these instructions may result in the entire iwer bing disallowedfrom the reimbursement account of t h*e employee e 1 n0)nedMUTILATION OF BUREAU PAD Lfi'KS.The Yale padlocks uod 1hiouott bur'1) u tro f rvi' are 4 nigh grade and there-fore should re-ist for a ria inabk' time all irdinay w-ar.
