which bear the official title of the high officials of the foreign countries specified
below, will be acceptable with animal casings offered for importation into the
United States.
The certificates must also bear the signature of the high official of the national
government having jurisdiction over the health of animals in the foreign country
in which the casings originated, but owing to the fact that the officials are changed
from time to time it is impracticable to publish their names.

1820] BEBVIOBE AND BEGULATOB~Y ANNOUNGEMlENTs 23

INSTRUCTIONS CONCERNING SICK: LEAVE

Attention of employees is called to the first paragraph of paragraph 5141 of the
Administrative Regulations when sick leave for a period, not in excess of two days,
is taken and is not supported by a physician's certificate. It will be noted that
the certificate must be sworn to before a notary public or any employee of the
department (Agriculture) authorized to administer oath to accounts for travel
or other expenses against the United States.
Strict compliance with this regulation wBl obviate much trouble at the close of
calendar years, when all leave slips are forwarded for checking.


THE USE OF TRANSPORTATION REQUESTS

Supplementing notice on page 102 of Service and Regulatory Announcements
for November, 1928, regarding the use of transportation requests iD lieu Of ORsh
for railroad, interurban, stage, auto-bus, and ferry fares in the amount of $1l or
more, the following should be especially noted: (1) Inspectors and others in
charge should order requests in sufficient quantities to meet the needs of them-
selves and all employees under their supervision at all times. (2) Employees
should secure from their inspectors and others in charge requests in sufficient
quantities to meet individual requirements. (3) The Washington office will
not forward requests unless ordered, except in rare cases. (4) The requirement
that requests be used when practicable for all fares amounting to $1 or more in
lieu of cash in no way affects the use of scrip. That should be obtained as here-
tofore in exchange for a transportation request and used on all transportation
lines that will accept it. (5) The bureau will no longer accept such reasons for
not using requests as "LNo requests available," "'No request furnished," "'None
on hand," Supply exhausted," etc., unless these reasons are satisfactorily
explained.
In the original notice wherein it was stated that if an individual had not been
furnished with a supply of requests, or if the same had become exhausted a state-
ment should be made to that effect, it was intended that these statements should
apply only for current accounts, and not indefinitely after sufficient time had
elapsed for all employees to make proper provision.
Inspectors and others in charge will please give this matter careful attention and
inform all their employees accordingly.


RESULTS OF PROSECUTIONS FOR VIOLATIONS OF LAWS

Penalties have been imposed in prosecutions for violations of regulatory laws,
as reported to the bureau, as follows:
Twenty-eight-hour Law
