date of September 6, 1929, a hearings was held. The testimony showed that
the respondent was duly registered as a market agency; that the respondent
was engaged in buying livestock for four packers or wholesale meat dealers
only; andl that all the livestockl so, pur~c'hased by respondent was in the names
of such packers or wholesale meat dealers, and therefore respondent had no
obligations resulting from such buy'inga for which a bond would be required.
Since the hearing, the respondent has channgedl his registration so as to show
that be is buying for said principals only. Accordingly, on October 16, 1929,
the case was dismissed.
Docket No. 296.--In re Omaha7 Horse &i Mule Commission Co., market agency,
Union Stock Yards, South Omnaha, Nebr. Notice of inquiry issued August 31,

hearing thereon. On October 26, 1929, the respondent was ordered to cease
and desist from doing business as a market agency without executingr and
maintaininga a reasonable b~ond to~ suitable trustees for the performance of
its obligations incurred as a market agency.



INSTRUCTIONS CONCERNING TRAVEL EXPENSE AND VOUCH[ERIS
Transportation Requests

Attention of all employees who perform official travel is invited to p-aragraph
20 of the Standardizedl Gov~rnmelnt Travec l Regulations, which provides that
"L transportation requests mlust not be used for personal travel.'"
This requir~ement must be rigidly observed and in carrying it out it is im-
portant that empyloYees dlismiss the idea, which has probably been responsible
for somle misuse, thrat roundabo~ut travel for personal reasons betwPeen points
in an official itinerary is not to be deemed personal travel. It is based not
only on the fundamental imlpropricet? of using the Government requests for
personal travel but on the fact that sueb throws upon both the bureau and
the General Accounting Offic~e the burden of auditing, settling, and paying
additional transportation accounts.
A single illustration of an instance~, in the use of requests as indicated
above, w~ich has been permitted heretofore but can; not nowm be allowed, is as
follows :
An employee is directed to perform official travel from Washington, D. C.,
to Chiengo, Ill., but is granted permission to go via Indianapolis for the pur-
pose of taking annual leave. Heretofore, he has been allowed to use a request
to Indinnapolls and another from Indiannpolis to Chicago, and the excess over
the direct far1e from Wanshingaton to Chliengl~o has been deducted fromn his expense
account. Under present reqluiremlents he will be obliged to pay cash fare for
the entire trip. Numerous illustrations could be given, but this conlcrete
example will suffice.
Inspectors and others in charge will be hleldl strictly to account for dereliction
on the part of employees with respect to these instructions.
Reclaimed Expense Items

To facilitate the prompt paymenust of travel vouchers, it is urgently important
that nil suspended items, credit errors in addition, and items omitted from a
previous ncou~nt, he reclaimed the second month following the suspension.
That is, items suspended from October account should be? reclaimed in De-
cember account; suspended from November should be reelaimed in January, etc.
Mailing of Checks

It is intended that all expense checks be sent through the inspector in charge
of stations. In order to accomplish this fully, no address other than that of








94 BUREAU OF ANIN[AL INDUSTRY [October,

the inspector in charge or official headquarters should appear on the voucher,
as, John Doe, care Dr. H-. Busman, 999 Exchange Avenue, Chicago, Ill." The
employee's station (not address) should appear in the space Official bead-
quarters." The situation in this respect would be ideal if each employee ren-
dering an account would indicate only his name on the line "LPayee" and
allow the "Address to be filled in by rubber stamp or otherwise by the
inspector in ebarge or other person at the central or main headquarters.
Miscellaneolu

On account of lack of space due to crowded printing at the top of the new
Standard Form 1012, it is very important that the space for the "Appropria-
tion be left blank. This matter has been referred to previously but is ignored
by many employees.
Please read very carefully paragraph 44 of the Government Travel Regula-
tions. All these items should be entered in the Subsistence column. All
other expenses, including the various porter fees, should be entered in the
Other column. It should be noted that bell boy and hotel porter fees
are not identical. The latter fee is entered in the Other column.
16any items are claimed in reimbursement accounts which have heretofore
been passed but should properly be claimed direct on Standard Form 1034,
unless cash payment is dlemanded. This condition applies more particularly
at official headquarters rather than when an employee is in a travel status,
but nevertheless should be extended to include all expense that is practicable
to be billed on 1034 voucher. All such items could not be enumerated, but
include post-office box and all other rent, telegrarph, telephone, laundering of
towels, purchase of gas and oil, repairs on Government car, and all items men-
tionedl in paragraoph 90 of the Government Travel Regulations. (See also
paragraphs 02, 93, and 94, G. T. R.)
W~ith reference to express shipments, particular attention is called to the nee?-
essity of making all shipments on a Government bill of Inding, if possible, or
in lieu thereof, charges should be billed direct on Standanrd Form 1034. All1
cases in which it is absolutely necessary to~ pay ensh must be explained. When
shipments are made from a central headquarters to various points throughout
the territory, as in the case of nuto tires, tuberculin, dip, etc., such shipments
must not be sent Collect." but should be handled as indiented above.
Employee~s away from their official station in a travel status at the close of
the month should claimi all subsistence for the month. That is, supper or/and
lodging must not be left out of the account and claimed in the following
a ccounI~t.
Emlployrees en route to their ofncial stations at midnight on the last day of
the mouth, expecting to arrive there on the first of the next month, or later,
should included in one voucher all their expense up to time of arrival.
Particular attention is invited to thlj fact that the information called for in
item 1 at the top of the first page on the inside of Standard Form 10)12 must be
shown only w~hen an employee is aw\ay from his officiall station at the close of the
preceding~ month.
See paragranph No. 3, Appendix VI, Standardized Government Travel Regula-
tions. Insapectors and others in charge will be held ac~countable and muust see
that this information is given before fo~rwarding the account to the WTashington
office.
Employees are cautioned, when executing transportation requests, to fill in the
correct authorization numbers in the space indicated .at the lower left corner.
Care shouldl also be taken to enter all requests. used in the space provided there-
for, oni the back of Standar'd Form 1012. Duplicate copies should be mailed
promptlY to, the Washing~ton offic~e.
The attention of everyr traveler is called to notice on page 32 of Service and
Regulatory Announcements for 111arch, 1929,14elative to the use of taxicabs.
Failure to furnish the necessary information often necessitates the suspension of
these items.
Attention is directed to notice on page 5 of the Official Reco~rd for October 24,
1929, under the heading New Travel Expense Voucher Forms." This notice is
important not only to employees who incur expense but to inspectors in charge
w~ho approve voulchers. WThile the inspector in charge signs in the space Im-
mediate supervising official only, and therefore does not certify to the facts as
set forth immediately beneath his signature, nevertheless sufficient care should
be exercised so that the acting chief of bureau m~ay be reasonable sure of the
facts as covered in the affidavit and in his own certificate.

On October 26, 1929, the respondent was ordered to ceaseand desist from doing business as a market agency without executing andmaintaining a reasonable bond to suitable trustees for the performance ofits obligations incurred as a market agency.INSTRUCTIONS CONCERNING TRAVEL EXPENSE AND VOUCHERSTransportation RequestsAttention of all employees who perform official travel is invited to paragraph20 of the Standardized Government Travel Regulations, which provides that"transportation requests must not be used for personal travel." This requirement must be rigidly observed and in carrying it out it is im-portant that employees dismiss the idea, which has probably been responsiblefor some misuse, that roundabout travel for personal reasons between pointsin an official itinerary is not to be deemed personal travel. It is based notonly on the fundamental impropriety of using the Government requests forpersonal travel but on the fact that such throws upon both the bureau andthe General Accounting Office the burden of auditing, settling, and payingadditional transportation accounts.A single illustration of an instance, in the use of requests as indicatedabove, which has been permitted heretofore but can not now be allowed, is asfollows:An employee is directed to perform official travel from Washington, D. C.,to Chicago, Ill., but is granted permission to go via Indianapolis for the pur-pose of taking annual leave. Heretofore, he has been allowed to use a requestto Indianapolis and another from Indianapolis to Chicago, and the excess overthe direct fare from Washington to Chicago has been deducted from his expense account. Under present requirements he will be obliged to pay cash fare forthe entire trip. Numerous illustrations could be given, but this concreteexample will suffice.Inspectors and others in charge will be held strictly to account for derelictionon the part of employees with respect to these instructions.Reclaimed Expense ItemsTo facilitate the prompt payment of travel vouchers, it is urgently importantthat all suspended items, credit errors in addition, and items omitted from aprevious account, be reclaimed the second month following the suspension.That is, items suspended from October account should be reclaimed in De-cember account; suspended from November should be reclaimed in January, etc.Mailing of ChecksIt is intended that all expense checks be sent through the inspector in chargeof stations. In order to accomplish this fully, no address other than that of

94 BUREAU OF ANIMAL INDUSTRY [October,the inspector in charge or official headquarters should appear on the voucher,as, " John Doe, care Dr. H. Busman, 999 Exchange Avenue, Chicago, Ill." Theemployee's station (not address) should appear in the space "Official head-quarters." The situation in this respect would be ideal if each employee ren-dering an account would indicate only his name on the line "Payee" andallow the "Address " to be filled in by rubber stamp or otherwise by theinspector in charge or other person at the central or main headquarters.MiscellaneousOn account of lack of space due to crowded printing at the top of the newStandard Form 1012, it is very important that the space for the "Appropria-tion " be left blank. This matter has been referred to previously but is ignoredby many employees.Please read very carefully paragraph 44 of the Government Travel Regula-tions. All these items should be entered in the " Subsistence " column. Allother expenses, including the various porter fees, should be entered in the" Other " column. It should be noted that " bell boy " and " hotel porter " feesare not identical. The latter fee is entered in the " Other " column.Many items are claimed in reimbursement accounts which have heretoforebeen passed but should properly be claimed direct on Standard Form 1034,unless cash payment is demanded. This condition applies more particularlyat official headquarters rather than when an employee is in a travel status,but nevertheless should be extended to include all expense that is practicableto be billed on 1034 voucher. All such items could not be enumerated, butinclude post-office box and all other rent, telegraph, telephone, laundering oftowels, purchase of gas and oil, repairs on Government car, and all items men-tioned in paragraph 90 of the Government Travel Regulations. (See alsoparagraphs 92, 93, and 94, G. T. R.)With reference to express shipments, particular attention is called to the nec-essity of making all shipments on a Government bill of lading, if possible, orin lieu thereof, charges should be billed direct on Standard Form 1034. Allcases in which it is absolutely necessary to pay cash must be explained. Whenshipments are made from a central headquarters to various points throughoutthe territory, as in the case of auto tires, tuberculin, dip, etc., such shipmentsmust not be sent " Collect," but should be handled as indicated above.Employees away from their official station in a travel status at the close ofthe month should claim all subsistence for the month. That is, supper or/andlodging must not be left out of the account and claimed in the followingaccount.Employees en route to their official stations at midnight on the last day ofthe month, expecting to arrive there on the first of the next month, or later,should include in one voucher all their expense up to time of arrival.Particular attention is invited to the fact that the information catled for in item 1 at the top of the first page on the inside of Standard Form 1012 must beshown only when an employee is away from his official station at the close of thepreceding month.See paragraph No. 3, Appendix VI, Standardized Government Travel Regula-tions. Inspectors and others in charge will be held accountable and must seethat this information is given before forwarding the account to the Washingtonoffice.Employees are cautioned, when executing transportation requests, to fill in thecorrect authorization numbers in the space indicated at the lower left corner.Care should also be taken to enter all requests, used in the space provided there-for, on the back of Standard Form 1012. Duplicate copies should be mailedpromptly to the Washington office.The attention of every traveler is called to notice on page 32 of Service and Regulatory Announcements for March, 1929, relative to the use of taxicabs.Failure to furnish the necessary information often necessitates the suspension ofthese items.Attention is directed to notice on page 5 of the Official Reco'rd for October 24,1929, under the heading " New Travel Expense Voucher Forms." This notice isimportant not only to employees who incur expense but to inspectors in chargewho approve vouchers. While the inspector in charge signs in the space " Im-mediate supervising official " only, and therefore does not certify to the facts asset forth immediately beneath his signature, nevertheless sufficient care shouldbe exercised so that the acting chief of bureau may be reasonably sure of thefacts as covered in the affidavit and in his own certificate.

Circular No. 129, dated June 13, 1929, published in the July 4, 1929, issueof the Official Record, relative to administration of oaths to expense accounts.Under these citations, inspectors and others in charge of the various field sta-tions of this bureau are held to be "chiefs of field parties," and therefore author-ized by law to administer oaths to expense accounts with like force and effect asofficers having a seal. Accordingly, inspectors and others in charge as indicatedabove may begin immediately to administer such oaths. In order that no question may arise regarding authority, it is extremely important that the title beindicated in every case as " Chief of field party."SUMMARY OF HOG-CHOLERA-CONTROL WORK, SEPTEMBER, 1929DemonstraOut-tri Premtions Autop Farms Farms breaksnarians Meetises insiesquarancleaned report-state wings advestitined and ed toin dressed gated NuHogsor disbureauwork ber treated carded fected veteri-nariansAlabama--------------1.0 2 74 2 46 1 ------1 --IArkansas-------------------1.5 1 58 2 16 33 .--------------20Colorado------------------.5 -------23 -------------2Florida--------------------1.0 1 64 71 1,412 4 --------------3Georgia-------------------1.2 1 115 12 167 3 --------------9Idaho------------------1 1.0 1 851 7 421 7 3 6.---6Illinois.--------------3.0 2 186 -------------52 22 25 88Indiana-----------2.0 2 93 .-------20 7 --.----13Iowa----------------------2.0 32 41 ---------.-------12---------------69Kansas.------.1.0--------221 2 5 6 --------------5Kentucky---------------------1 1Louisiana--------.---.-. .5 1 20 2 82 4 -.-.1 5Maryland-----------------2.0 1 165 1 50 9 10 -----.43Michigan------------------2.0 -------141 1 28 9 --------------57Mississippi--------------1.0 1 143 3 89 7------.-. -1Missouri-----------L-. 10 30 1 19 7 ---.-----------6Nebraska-----------------1.0 ---.30 .9.---.----7 ---.-------9North Carolina.--------------1 0 2 151 107 972 11 116 .---18Ohio---.-------------------53 --------------13------------92Oklahoma----.----.----. 10 .57 1 42 2 4 2 4South Carolina---------1.0 -----22 17 387 1 --------6----.----6South Dakota----------1.0 ------6 ---------------8 --------------1Tennessee -----------------1.0 -----.55 1 16 4 1 1 6Texas--------------------1.0 .--. 42 1 110 --------------. ----10Virginia---.----------------1.0 2 196 -.---------------9 -----------------4Washington------------1.0 77 1 150 3 --.--------------2Oregon----------JWisconsin---------------.5 -11 -----------7 4 1 7Total---------------32.2 59 2,201 232 4,012 242 167 31 4851 Fractions denote veterinarians devot ing part time to the work.RESULTS OF PROSECUTIONS FOR VIOLATIONS OF LAWSPenalties and fines have been imposed in prosecutions for violations of regula-tory laws, as reported to the bureau, as follows:Twenty-eight-Hour LawBaltimore & Ohio Railroad Co., $100 penalty.Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad Co., $100 penalty.Chicago, Rock Island & Gulf Railway Co., $100 penalty.
