In accordance with the provisions of B. A. I. Order 309, the bureau has granted

tribution and use of "San-I-Sol" under the name of "Soleresan" in the general
disinfection of cars, Yards, and other premises. "Soleresan" is identical with
"San-I-Sol," manufactured by MucLaughlin Gormley King Co., of Minneapolis,
Minn.

DEGREES AND TITLES FOR LIST OF DEPARTMENT WORKERS
The bureau desires to receive from its employees the latest information con-
cerning educational degrees, which they may have received, for use in the next
edition of the List of Technical Workers in the Department of Agriculture. This
publication is based principally on personnel records, but in some cases, accord-
ing to communications received from field workers, degrees recently obtained
have not been reported. Workers are also requested to examine their titles as
published in the 1930 edition of the publication and report any apparent errors.
Inspectors in charge will please review the list of workers under their supervision.
It is necessary that all additions or corrections be furnished not later than June 1.
The bureau welcomes likewise comments from its workers concerning any
desirable changes or improvements that can be made in our publications.


VISCERA ITCH ("SWINE ITCH") DATA SUMMARIZED
In response to a notice published in Service and Regulatory Announcements of
March, 1929, requesting reports on so-called winee itch," the bureau received a
large quantity of data. which have been studied by the Zoological Division. An
analysis of the information indicates that this skin trouble is probably a protein
sensitization. The term "swvine itch" is not considered an appropriate designa-
tion for this dermatitis, but is merely a vernacular expression based on observa-
tions of the reddening, vesicle formations, and eruptions on the hands of butchers,
meat inspectors, and others who handle freshly killed swine carcasses. Informa-
tion reaching the bureau abows that handling or touching the viscaera of such
carcasses is chiefly responsible for the condition mentioned.
The lesions appear most commonly between the fingers and may spread over
t~he hands and occasionally extend up the arms as far as the elbows. In rare
instances other parts of the body may be affected. Although the lesions are of
most occurrence among persons who handle freshly kiled swine, a similar form of
itch has also been reported to have been observed among persons who handle the
carcasses and viscera of cattle and sheep.
Owing to the inappropriate and somewhat misleading character of the term
"swfine itch" for the condition described, the bureau tentatively proposes the
term viscera itch, as a more accurate designation for the dermatitis resulting
from handling the viscera and other parts of carcasses.
Inspectors in charge are requested to notify the bureau whether any members
of their force or butchers are affected with this dermatitis at the present time.
On the basis of this information, arrangements will be made to secure photographs
of the hands and other parts of the body of employees and others who show
characteristic lesions.

"Solcresan" is identical with"San-I-Sol," manufactured by McLaughlin Gormley King Co., of Minneapolis,Minn.DEGREES AND TITLES FOR LIST OF DEPARTMENT WORKERSThe bureau desires to receive from its employees the latest information con-cerning educational degrees, which they may have received, for use in the nextedition of the List of Technical Workers in the Department of Agriculture. Thispublication is based principally on personnel records, but in some cases, accord-ing to communications received from field workers, degrees recently obtainedhave not been reported. Workers are also requested to examine their titles aspublished in the 1930 edition of the publication and report any apparent errors.Inspectors in charge will please review the list of workers under their supervision.It is necessary that all additions or corrections be furnished not later than June 1.The bureau welcomes likewise comments from its workers concerning anydesirable changes or improvements that can be made in our publications.VISCERA ITCH ("SWINE ITCH") DATA SUMMARIZEDIn response to a notice published in Service and Regulatory Announcements ofMarch, 1929, requesting reports on so-called "swine itch," the bureau received alarge quantity of data which have been studied by the Zoological Division. Ananalysis of the information indicates that this skin trouble is probably a proteinsensitization. The term "swine itch" is not considered an appropriate designa-tion for this dermatitis, but is merely a vernacular expression based on observa-tions of the reddening, vesicle formations, and eruptions on the hands of butchers,meat inspectors, and others who handle freshly killed swine carcasses. Informa-tion reaching the bureau shows that handling or touching the viscaera of suchcarcasses is chiefly responsible for the condition mentioned.The lesions appear most commonly between the fingers and may spread overthe hands and occasionally extend up the arms as far as the elbows. In rareinstances other parts of the body may be affected. Although the lesions are ofmost occurrence among persons who handle freshly killed swine, a similar form ofitch has also been reported to have been observed among persons who handle thecarcasses and viscera of cattle and sheep.Owing to the inappropriate and somewhat misleading character of the term"swine itch" for the condition described, the bureau tentatively proposes theterm "viscera itch," as a more accurate designation for the dermatitis resultingfrom handling the viscera and other parts of carcasses.Inspectors in charge are requested to notify the bureau whether any membersof their force or butchers are affected with this dermatitis at the present time.On the basis of this information, arrangements will be made to secure photographsof the hands and other parts of the body of employees and others who showcharacteristic lesions.
