NOTICE REGARDING MEAT. INSPECTION

NECESSITY FOR CARE IN HANDLING AND USE OF $ODIUM NI[TRITEC

Attention is directed to the necessity for care in the handling and use of sodium
nitrite. The properties of sodium nitrite are such that meat may be damaged or
rendered unwholesome by excess. Accordingly, establishments using sodium
nitrite or proprietary mixtures containing it must take such precautions as will
insure safety. Supplies of sodium nitrite, or nitrite mixtures, must be kept
securely under the care of a responsible employee. Mixtures and solutions con-
taining sodium nitrite must be known to contain a definite quantity of nitrite.
All oures containing sodium nitrite must be thoroughly mixed. Employees in
general, an d new employees in particular, must be systematically cautioned
against misuse of nitrite. Inspectors in charge of meat inspection will see that
satisfactory precautions against misuse are taken in establishments under their
jurisdiction and check any misuse or excess. Curing mixtures suspected of con-
training excessive quantities of nitrite will be rejected and any meats suspected
of containing too much nitrite will be retained pending laboratory report. Any
persistent carelessness or laxity will be brought to the attention of the bureau
for action.

PERMITTED DISINFECTANT
In accordance with the provisions of B. A. I. Order 292, governing the inter-
state movement of livestock, the bureau has granted permission to Geo. H.
Lee Co., Omaha, Nebr., for the distribution and use of "' Crestall Dip under the
name of Lee's 50%~ Cresol Solution in the general disinfection of cars, yards,
and other premises. "1Lee's 50%0 Cresol Solution" is identical with "Crestall
Dip", manufactured by Baird & MlcGuire (Inc.), Boston, Mass.


PERMITTED DIP FOR CATTLE FOR TICK;S
The bureau has granted permission for the use of "'Flag Brand" arsenical
cattle dip, manufactured by the National Chemical Co., of California, 310
Sansome Street, San Francisco, Calif., 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 0.22 per cent actual arse'nious oxide.


PROMOTIONS AND STATION EXPENSES
A number of promotions were made on January 1, 1927, the middle of the
last fiscal year. These promotions were made possible largely through the can-
cellation of the regular biennial meeting of inspectors of the Meat Inspection
Division, which otherwise would have been held in June.
A larger number of promotions were likewise made on July 1, 1927, although
no extra, funds are available for promotions. In order to avoid a, deficit at the
end of the present fiscal year, it is necessary to ask inspectors in charge to reduce
their station expenses so as to meet 50 per cent of the cost of these promotions.





192] -SERVICE AND REGULATORY ANNOUNCEMENTS 59

For instance, at a station where the promotions amount to $600 per annum the
insipectorr in charge is requested to reduce the running expenses of his station by
$300 per annum, and the Washington office will make arrangements to provide
the other 50 per cent.
This request would not be necessary if the bureau had received the additional
funds that had been asked for to make promotions during the present fiscal year.
It is realized that salaries of bureau employees should be increased, and this year
the bureau will renew its request of last year for additional funds to be used for
making promotions in 1928.

CONTRIBUTIONS FOR 1927 YEARBOOK

By direction of Secretary Jardine, the 1927 Yearbook of the department will
be similar in style to the 1926 volume, recently issued. In making plans for the
Bureau of Animal Industry's contributions to the 1927 Yearbook it seems desira-
ble to include articles from members of its extensive field forces, thereby lending
diversity to and widening the scope of its contributions.
For the guidance of officers in charge, as well as of authors of articles, the
following suggestions are made:
It is proposed to include in the new volume a large number of short articles,
each dealing with some particular discovery, research project, problem, or
administrative function.
The length of articles is limited to 1,500 words as a maximum; contributions
ranging between 500 and 1,000 words are preferred.
Articles which can be suitably illustrated should be accompanied by a few clear
photographs or drawings.
Because of their brevity, contributions should not cover too much ground, but
should carry a definite message of agricultural or general interest.
Popular style' is a principal requirement in the Yearbook, which is intended
primarily for the general reader rather than for the scientist or technician.
It is Secretary Jardine's desire that authors assume the responsibility of
settling controversial points before their manuscripts are submitted for publica-
tion. The desirability of eliminating disputed points is emphasized, since
changes in the proof are costly and also cause delay in publication.
Contributions should be transmitted through the chiefs of divisions not later
than October 1, and preferably at an earlier date.
The 1926 Yearbook may be used as a general guide for the class of contribu-
tions desired. The Yearbook has wide distribution and is believed to be an
excellent means of placing on record the results of important field activities
as well as research and administrative functions of the bureau.
Though the publication of every article submitted for t~he Yearbook is not
definitely assured, there is reasonable certainty that a large number of contribu-
tions can be accommodated. The department also has other outlets, such as its
press service, and contacts with agricultural, trade, and scientific journals for
articles that can not be included in the Yearbook. The bureau's field forces
are believed to contain many good writers, and it is hoped that there will be a
liberal response to this request for contributions to the 1927 Yearbook.


RESULTS OF PROSECUTIONS FOR VIOLATIONS OF LAWS

tory laws, as reported to the bureau, as follows:

NOTICE REGARDING MEAT INSPECTION NECESSITY FOR CARE IN HANDLING AND USE OF SODIUM NITRITE Attention is directed to the necessity for care in the handling and use of sodium nitrite. The properties of sodium nitrite are such that meat may be damaged or rendered unwholesome by excess. Accordingly, establishments using sodium nitrite or proprietary mixtures containing it must take such precautions as will insure safety. Supplies of sodium nitrite, or nitrite mixtureB, must be kept securely under the care of a responsible employee. Mixtures and solutions containing sodium nitrite must be known to contain a definite quantity of nitrite. All cures containing sodium nitrite must be thoroughly mixed. Employees in general, arid new employees in particular, must b~ systematically cautioned against misuse of nitrite. Inspectors in charge of meat inspection will see that satisfactory precautions against misuse are taken in establishments under their jurisdiction and check any misuse or excess. Curing mi,xtures suspected of containing e~essive quantities of nitrite will be rejected and any meats suspected of containing too mu.ch nitrite will be retained pending laboratory report. Any persistent carelessness or laxity will be brought to the attention of the bureau for action.

PERMITTED DISINFECTANT In accordance with the provisions of B. A. I. Order 292, governing the interstate movement of livestock, the bureau has granted permissiou to Geo. H. Lee Co. , Omaha, Nebr. , for the distribution and use of "Crestall Dip" under the name of " Lee ' s 50 % Cresol Solution," in the general disinfection of cars, yards, and other premises. "Lee' s 50 % Cresol Solution" is identical with "Crestall Dip" , manufactured b y Baird & McGuire (Inc. ), Boston, M ass. PERMITTED DIP FOR CATTLE FOR TICKS The bureau has granted permission for the use of "Flag Brand" arsenical cattle dip, manufactured by the National Chemical Co . , of California, 310 Sansome Street, San Francisco, Calif., 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 y ield a solution containing not less than 0.22 per cent actual arsebious oxide. PROMOTIONS AND STATION EXPENSES A number of promotions were made on January 1, 1927, the middle of the last fiscal year. These promotions were made possible largely through the cancella tion of the regular biennial meeting of inspectors of the Meat Inspection Divis ion , which otherwise would have been held in June. A larger number of promotions were likewise made on July 1 , 1927, although no e xtra funds are available for promotions. In order to avoid a deficit at the end of the present fiscal year, it is necessary to ask inspectors in charge to reduce their station expenses so a s to meet 50 per cent of the cost of these promotions.

PAGE 7

1927) SERVICE AND REGULATORY ANNOUNCEMENTS 59 For instance, at a station where the promotions amount to $600 per annum the inspector in charge is requested to reduce the running expenses of his station by $300 per annum, and the Washington office will make arrangements to provide the other 50 per cent. This request would not be necessary if the bureau had received the additional funds that had been asked for to make promotions during the present fiscal year. It is realized that salaries of bureau employees should be increased, and this year the bureau will renew its request of last year for additional funds to be used for making promotions in 1928. CONTRIBUTIONS FOR 1927 YEARBOOK By direction of Secretary Jardine, the 1927 Yearbook of the department will be similar in style to the 1926 volume, recently issued. In making plans for the Bureau of Animal Industrv's contributions to the 1927 Yearbook it seems desirable to include articles from members of its extensive field forces, thereby lending diversity to and widening the scope of its contributions. For the guidance of officers in charge, as well as of authors of articles, the following suggestions are made: It is proposed to include in the new volume a large number of short articles, each dealing with some particular discovery, research project, problem, or administrative function. The length of articles is limited to 1,500 words as a maximum; contributions ranging between 500 and 1,000 words are preferred. Articles which can be suitably illustrated should be accompanied b y a few clear photographs or drawings. Because of their brevity, contributions should not cover too much ground, but .should carry a definite message of agricultural or general interest. Popular style is a principal requirement in the Yearbook, which is intended primarily for the general reader rather than for the scientist or technician. It is Secretary Jardine's desire that authors assume the responsibility of settling controversial points before their manuscripts are submitted for publication. The desirability of eliminating disputed points is emphasized, since changes in the proof are costly and also cause delay in publication. Contributions should be transmitted through the chiefs of di v isions not later than October 1, and preferably at an earlier date. The 1926 Yearbook may be used as a general guide for the class of contributions desired. The Yearbook has wide distribution and is believed to be an excellent means of placing on record the results of important field activities as well as research and administrative functions o f the bureau. Though the publication of every article submitte d for the Yearbook is not definitely assured, there is reasonable certainty that a large number of contributions can be accommodated. The department also has other outlets , such as its press service, and contacts with agricultural, trade, and scientific journals for articles that can not be included in the Yearbook. The burea u ' s field for c es are believed to contain many good writers, and it is ho ped that there will be a liberal response to this request for contributions to the 1927 Yearboo k. RESULTS OF PROSECUTIONS FOR VIOLATIONS OF LAWS Fines and penalties have been imposed in prosecutions for viol ation s of reg ulatory laws, as reported to the bureau, as follows: Livestock Quarantine Law Chicago, Great Western Railroad Co., interstate transportation of cattle without tuberculin test, $100 fine. Minneapolis, St. Paul & Sault Ste. Marie Railway Co . , interstate transporta -tion of one dead hog in the same car with live anima. ls, $100 fine. Twenty-eight Hour Law Chicago & North Western Railway Co., $100 penalty. Indiana Harbor Belt Railroad Co., $100 penalty. Receiver of Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway Co., $100 penalty .
