NOTICES REGARDING MEAT INSPECTION
ANIMAL CASINGS OF FOREIGN ORIGIN
Certificates required by B. A. I Order 305 and instructions issued thereunder,
which bear the official title of the high official of the foreign country as specified
below, w~ill be acceptable with animal casings offered for importation into the
United States.
The certificates must also bear the signature of the high offcial of the national
government having jurisdiction over the health of animals in the foreign country
in which the casinlgs originated, but ow~ing to the fact that the high officials are
changed from tim~e to time it is impracticable to publish their names.
Official title Foreipiu country
M minister of Agriculture...- -. .__ __.~ --..__-_...... .~. __France
Additional official titles w~ill be published when received from other foreign
countries.
EXPORT MEAT-INSJPECTION CERTIFICATES REQUIRED FOR JAPAN
The department is officially informed that the Government of Japan requires
certification for meat and meat food products offered for importation into that
country. Accordingly, exporters will request and inspectors in charge of meat
inspection w~ill issue certificates as provided by regulation to cover these articles
destined to Japan.
DEARTH FROM HYDROCYANIC-ACID GAS
The recent deaths of an expert fumigator and tw~o helpers emphasizes the
importance of extraordinary precautions in the use of hydroeyanic-acid gas.
These lives were lost while fumiigatinig a building wit~h the gas. Exact details are
not obtainable, as all persons inl thle building lost their lives. It appears, however,
that the arrangements for fumigation were faulty and that after releasing the
charges on the lowest level the men were obliged to traverse two floors above in
order to release the charges there. Under sulch circumstances a slight. delay may
easily be fatal. Fumigation with hydrocyanic-acid gas is an effective method for
the control of vermini in meat-packing establishments but the extremely dangerous
character of the gas must always be kept in~ mind even by those familiar with
safe procedures.

It is not the bureau's intention, at. least for the present, to attempt. to use the
Government radio for rush messages but rather for night messages. When
necessary, rush messages, Government day rate, may' be sent by telegraph, but
messages sent for delivery the following morning should be forwarded by radio
unless there are good reasons for sending them by telegraph, Government night
rate. Three classes of messages are thus available: (1) Rush day messages by
telegraph, (2) night messages by telegraph, and (:3) radio messages by Govern-
ment facilities. (There is nlo charge for t.he transmission of official messages by
the Government radio facilities.)
The W'ashington office wFill require explanations when messages are sent
at other than the cheapest rate, the urgency of the message considered.
Attention is called to paragraph 81 of the fiscal regulations of the department.
The Washington office closes daily at, 4.30 p. m., eastern standard time, except on
Saturday during June, July, August, and September, when the closing time is
1 p. m.
It is desired to give the Army-Navy radio facilities a thorough trial. Thus far
experience with it has been good and as such service further demonstrates its
effciency for bureau us which it is expected it will--it is hoped that the bureau
may be able to extend the use of it. Before a bureau field office discontinues the
use of such facilities, the W~ashington office should be advised in detail as to any
unsatisfactory service. Such complaints will be taken up with the radio services
here and the complaining field office advised in the premises.
By the use of this service w~henever practicable, it is expected that the bureau's
telegraph bill will be considerably reduced.
While this arrangement for sending messages by radio is primarily for com-
municating between W'ashington and bureau field offices, the latter should
ascertain from their respective radio stations the feasibility of their communi-

r Air mail station only.

SERVICE AND REGULATORY ANNOUNCEMENTS


eating by radio with other bureau field offices listed above, and, when that is
possible, should avail themselves of such facilities as occasion may require.
Offices submitting messages to radio stations should see that the abbreviation
"Go. Ar."preede th nae o th patyaddressed, thus "Gov. Ag~r. Herman
Busman 99. pExchang te Avnue, Uno Sh attock Y'ards, Chicago, Ill." These
abbreviations mean "'Government Agriculture" and are the radio service's means
of identifying the department that sends the message.
Washington offces preparing messages to be sent by radio will please see that
an extra copy preferable on the regular telegraph blank Form E--1) is attached
so that it can be sent by mail the same day as confirmation.
The radio should not be used for messages nlot. properly chargeable to the3
Government. (See instructions on page 25 of Servric~e and Regulatory Announce-
ments for February, 1923.)
As radio facilities become available for additional field offices or the radio
facilities at any of the stations listed be discontinued or for some reason the bureau
sees fit to return entirely t.o the use of the commercial telegraph, this list will
be amended.
It is hoped that bureau field offices will form close contacts with their respective
radio stations and cooperate fullly w~ith theml in every way' possible. Your hearty
cooperation is requested.


LEASE ON LIVING QUARTERS
Information has reached the bureau of instances in which an employee on
transfer from one official station t~o another has suffered financially by reason of
the fact that he w~as living in quarters leased for a definite period. The sugges-
tion is offered that w~hen an employee enters into a lease on his living quarters
he should stipulate in the contract, if possible, that if he is moved on Govern-
ment orders before the expc(iration date thle lease mnay be canceled at the time he
vacates the premises.


CARE IN THE INOCULATION OF HOGS

A5 report was recently received fromt one of thle large packing establishments
of the M~iddle West that on two occasions in the t~rimnming of hog carcasses a part
of a hypodermic needle w~as found imbieddied in the tiesh in the region of the neck.
It is reasonable to assume t~hat these pieces w\ere from serum or virus needles
used in inoculating hogs against cholera. V'ery likely they w~ere parts of virus
needles, which are of much smaller caliber and much more breakable.
At any rate, this calls to mind the necessity for extreme care in, the hnanding
of syringes to avoid accidents of thlis char~acter. It is probanble that these
needle points could not alw~ays be detected in the mieat on the. trimming floor,
and t.he product might reach; the consumer containing these dangerous pieces
of metal. What the resullt could be from the ingestion of such materials is not
pleasant to contemplate. It behooves every bureau veterinarian engaged in
the inoculation of hogs a~gainst. cholera t~o be v~ery- cautious not toq have such acci-
dents occur. If a needle should break while seruml or virus is being injected,
every effort possible should be made to extract the broken part from. the flesb.


RESULTS OF PROSECUTIONS FOR VIOLATIONS OF LAWS

Fines and penalties hlave beenl imposed in prosecutions for violations of regu-
latory laws, as reported to thle bulreau~, as follows:
Livestock Quanranine Law
V. E. Champion~, Pleasanlt Hill, La., was tined- $100 inl each of tw\o cases for
interstate movemuent of cattle from thle quarantinred ar'ea of Louisiana into Texas.
M\Iat. Flores, George Haines, Robert Raines, andc G~rady W'illiams, of the same
place, w~ere fined $100 in each of twou caRses and p~ayment suspended. ,

I Order 305 and instructions issued thereunder, which bear the officia l title of the high official of the foreign country as specified below, will be acreptable 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 high officials are changed from time to time it is impracticable to publish their names. Official title Foreign country Minister of Agriculture ______________ ________________ ______________ France Additional official titles will be published when received from other foreign• countries. EXPORT MEAT-INSPECTION CERTIFICATES REQUIRED FOR JAPAN The department is officially informed that the Government of Japan requires certification for meat and meat food products offered for importation into that country. Accordingly, exporters will request and inspectors in charge of meat inspection will issue certificates as provided by regulation to cover these articles destined to Japan. DEATH FROM HYDROCYANIC-ACID GAS The recent death of an expert fumigator and two helpers emphasizes the importance of extraordinary precautions in the use of hydrocyanic-aoid gas. These lives were lost while fumigating a building with the gas. Exact details are not obtainable, as all persons in the building lost their lives. It appears, however, that the arrangements for fumigation were faulty and that after releasing the charges on the lowest level the men were obliged to traverse two floors above in order to release the charges there. Under such circumstances a slight delay may easily be fatal. Fumigation with hydrocyanic-acid gas is an effective method for the control of vermin in meat-packing establishments but the extremely dangerous character of the gas must always be kept in mind even by those familiar with safe procedures.

Kelly, care of Carstens P acki ng Co. It is not the bureau's intention, at least for the present, to attempt to use the Government radio for rush messages but rather for night messages. When nece ssary, rush messages, Government day rate, may be sent by telegraph, but messages sent for delivery the following morning should be forwarded by radio unless there are good reasons for sending them by telegraph, Government night rate. Three classes of messages are thus available: (1) Rush day messages by telegraph, (2) night messages by telegraph, and (3) radio messages by Government facilities. (There is no charge for the transmission of official messages by the Government radio facilities.) The Washington office will require explanations when messages are sent at other than the cheapest rate, the urgency of the message considered. Attention is called to paragraph 81 of the fiscal regulations of the department. The Washington office closes daily at 4.30 p. m., eastern standard time, except on Saturdays during June, July, August, and September, when the closing time is 1 p. m. It is desired to give the Army-Navy radio facilities a thorough trial. Thus far experience with it has been good and as such service further demonstrates its efficiency for bureau use--which it is expected it will-it is hoped that the bureau may be able to extend the use of it. Before a bureau field office discontinues the use of such facilities, the Washington office should be advised in detail as to any unsatisfactory service. Such complaints will be taken up with the radio services here and the complaining field office advised in the premises. By the use of this service whenever practicable, it is expected that the bureau's telegraph bill will be considerably reduced. While this arrangement for sending messages by radio is primarily for communicating between Washington and bureau field offices, the latter should ascertain from their respective radio stations the feasibility of their communi1 Air mail station only.

192 l SERVICE AND REGULATORY ANNOUNCEMENTS 27 eating by radio with oth r bureau field offices li ted above, and, when that is possible, should avail themselves of . uch facilities as occasion may require. Offices submitting messages t radio station s should see that the abbreviation "Gov. Agr." precedes the name of the party addressed, thus "Gov. Agr. Herman Busman, 999 Exchange Avenue, Union Stock Yards, Chicago, Ill." These abbreviations mean "Government Agriculture II and are the radio service's means of identifying the department that sends the message. Washington office preparing messages to be sent by radio will please see that an extra copy (preferably on the regular telegraph blank Form E-1) is attached so that it can be sent by mail the same day as confirmation. The radio should not be used for messages not properly chargeable to the Government. (See instructions on page 25 of Service and Regulatory Announcements for February, 1923. ) As radio facilities become available for additional field offices or the radio facilities at any of the stations listed be discontinued or for some reason the bureau sees fit to return entirely to the use of the commercial telegraph, this list will be amended. It is hoped that bureau field offices will form close contacts with their respective radio stations and cooperate fully with them i n every way possible. Your hearty cooperation is requested. LEASE ON LIVING QUARTERS Information has reached the bureau of instances in which an employee on transfer from one official station to another has suffered financially by reason of the fact that he was li ving in quarters l ease d for a definite period. The suggestion is offered that when an employee enters into a lease on his li ving quarters he should stipulate in the contract, if possible, that if he is moved on Government orders before the expiration date the le ase ma~ be canceled at the time he vacates the premises. CARE IN THE INOCULATION OF HOGS A report was recently received from one of the large packing establishments of the Middle West that on two occasions in the trimming of hog carcasses a part of a hypodermic needle was found imbedded in the flesh in the region of the neck. It is reasonable to assume that these pieces were from serum or virus needles used in inoculating hogs against cholera. Very likely they were parts of virus needles, which are of much smaller caliber and much more breakable. At any rate, this calls to mind the necessity for extreme care in the handling of syringes to avoid accidents of this character. It i s probable that these needle points could not always .be detected in the meat on the trimming floor, and the product might reach the consumer containing these dangerous pieces of metal. What the result could be from the inge tion of such material is not pleasant to contemplate. It behooves every bureau veterinarian engaged in the inoculation of hogs against cholera to be very cautious not to have such accidents occur. If a needle should break while serum or virus i s being injected, every effort poss ible should be made to extract the broken part from the flesh. RESULTS OF PROSECUTIONS FOR VIOLATIONS OF LAWS Fines and penalties have been impo ed in prosecutions for violations of regulatory laws, as reported to the bureau, as follows: Livestock Quarantine Law V. E. Champion, Plea ant Hill, La.., was fined in each of two cases for interstate movement of cattle from t he quarantined area. of Louisiana into Texas. Mat. Flores, George Raines, Robert Raines, and Grady Williams, of the same place, were fined $100 in each of two ca es and payment suspended.
