permission to Louleville Chemical Co., 108 South Third Avenue, Louisvile, KyJ.,
for the distribution and use of Sherwin-Williams 50 per cent cresol solution
under the name of "Creal-o" in the general disinfection of cars, yards, and other
premises. Creal-o is identical with Sherwin-Williams 50 per cent cresol solution
manufactured by The Sherwcin-Williams Co., Chicago, Ill.

Change from Mranufacturer to Distributor
The bureau also granted permission to Connecticut Chemical & Disinfectant
Co. of 683 Chapel Street, New Haven, Conn., for the distribution and use of
Hexsolis under the name of "Kre-Sol" in the general disinfection of cars, yards,
and other premises. Kre-Sol is identical with Hexsolis manufactured by Tar
Products Corporation of Providence, R. I.
On M~ay 31, 1929, permission w~as granted to the Connecticut Chemical &
Disinfectant Co. to manufacture a saponified cresol solution under its trade name
" Kre-Sol for official use in the general disinfection of cars, yards, and other
premises. This company is no longer manufacturing this product, and at its
request the above permission is withdrawn, and permission to distribute Hexsolis
under its trade name of Kre-Sol is granted in lieu thereof.

PERMITTED ARSENICAL CATTLE DIP
The bureau has granted permission for the use of Hex arsenical dip manufae-
tured by American Tar Products Co., of Providence, R. I., in the official dipping
of cattle for ticks. The dilution for dipping cattle for interstate movement is
1 gallon of dip to not more than 127 gallons of water. This will yield a solution
containing not less than 0.2'2 per cent actual arsenious oxide.
Distributor of Arsenical Dip
Permission, has been granted to Koppers Products Co., Industrial Trust Build-
ing, Providence, R. I., for the distribution of Hex arsenical dip under the same
trade name of Hex Arsenical Dip for use in the official dipping of cattle for
ticks. This dip is manufactured by American Tar Products Co., of Providence,
R. I. The dilution for dipping cattle for interstate movement is 1 gallon of dip
to not more than 1'27 gallons of water. This will yield a solution containing
not Less than 0.22 per cent actual arsenious oxide.

TRANSFER OF EMPLOYEES

Only in case of a real emergency should an inspector in charge transfer an
employee from one official station to another until after the matter has been
presented to the Washington office and specific authority for the transfer has
been granted.

OFFICE QUARTERS IN FEDERAL BUILDINGS
When inspectors in charge are approached regarding office quarters in proposed
new Federal buildings, additions to Federal buildings, or offices already occupied
by the bureau in Federal buildings, in order that the matter may be consistently
handled between the Washington and field offices, it should be referred to the
Washington office.
Several cases recently have come to the attention of the bureau wherein
inspectors in charge have been consulted relative to office quarters in Federal
buildings and have furnished information direct without taking the matter up
with the Washington office. Such a procedure in a number of instances has been
very embarrassing to the bureau, as the matter had already received the attention
of this office and the information furnished by the field office did not agree with
that submitted by the bureau.
Recommendations from inspectors in charge in such cases are solicited, but
any commitment as to bureau policy or intentions must be left to the Washington
office.
These instructions apply equally as well to the matter of releasing space that
the bureau may be occupying as they do to questions of new or additional space
in Federal buildings.

I., for the distribution of Hex arsenical dip under the sametrade name of "Hex Arsenical Dip" for use in the official dipping of cattle forticks. This dip is manufactured by American Tar Products Co., of Providence,R. I. The dilution for dipping cattle for interstate movement is 1 gallon of dipto not more than 127 gallons of water. This will yield a solution containingnot less than 0.22 per cent actual arsenious oxide.TRANSFER OF EMPLOYEESOnly in case of a real emergency should an inspector in charge transfer anemployee from one official station to another until after the matter has beenpresented to the Washington office and specific authority for the transfer hasbeen granted.OFFICE QUARTERS IN FEDERAL BUILDINGSWhen inspectors in charge are approached regarding office quarters in proposednew Federal buildings, additions to Federal buildings, or offices already occupiedby the bureau in Federal buildings, in order that the matter may be consistently handled between the Washington and field offices, it should be referred to theWashington office.Several cases recently have come to the attention of the bureau whereininspectors in charge have been consulted relative to office quarters in Federalbuildings and have furnished information direct without taking the matter upwith the Washington office. Such a procedure in a number of instances has beenvery embarrassing to the bureau, as the matter had already received the attentionof this office and the information furnished by the field office did not agree withthat submitted by the bureau.Recommendations from inspectors in charge in such cases are solicited, butany commitment as to bureau policy or intentions must be left to the Washingtonoffice.These instructions apply equally as well to the matter of releasing space thatthe bureau may be occupying as they do to questions of new or additional spacein Federal buildings.
