NOTICES REGARDING MEAT INSPECTION
APPROVAL OF GELATIN LABELS
The approval of ink brands is extended to cover the text on gelatin labels
when the marking on the latter is similar to the ink brands in all respects, with
the usual exception that the approval of a smaller size authorized the use of a
similar marking which is proportionately enlarged.
The foregoing del-s not alter existing instructions pertaining to the laboratory
approval of the constituents of the labels.
APPROVAL OF NAMES AND TERMS INVOLVED IN TRADE-MARK REGISTRATION
Referring to items in recent issues of Service and Regulatory Announcements
containing lists of names and words approved for all establishments for applica-
tion by means of stencils, box dies or brands, the bureau's attention has been
called to the alleged trade-mark registration of certain names and terms included
in the list. The bureau has no jurisdiction in matters of trade-mark registration
and under the Federal meat-inspection laws and regulations has no alternative
other than to approve and permit the use of names and terms which are not
false and deceptive in relation to products with which they are to be employed.
Such approval carries with it no authority for the use of the marking involved
in contravention of other Federal statutes, including those incident to trade-
mark registration.

SERVICE AND REGULATORY ANNOUNCEMENTS


101


TRIMMINGS AND ORGANS FROZEN IN BLOCKS
It will be noted that the announcement May, 1924, entitled "Trimmings and
Organs Frozen in Blocks" refers particularly to sanitary protection, legible in-
spection marks at destination, and to the use of paper which diintegrates.
The order is not retroactive but is applicable to covering. applied to the
articles in question subsequent to the receipt of the announcement.
Full carload lots of trimmings and organs frozen in blocks may be shipped
between official establishments in clean cars properly equipped without cover-
ing individual blocks and without inspection marks other than the regular
bureau car seals applied to the cars.
Coverings are not required for the process of freezing the blocks in official
establishments, or when th, blocks are to be utilized in preparing product within
the establishment where frozen, but when shipment is made in other than full
carload lot, the blocks shall be covered and marked as indicated in the announce-
ment.
Cheesecloth or light muslin coverings are inadequate and not acceptable where
protection from contamination in shipment and legible marks of inspection on
the packages at. destination are essential. Whenever coverings are required, as
indicated above, they shall be of materials such as heavy muslin, canvas, wood,
or heavy burlap lined with cheesecloth.
If establishments desire to use as a lining for cheesecloth or similar covering
genuine parchment paper w which will not disintegrate in contact with the product,
the bureau will give the matter consideration upon submission of samples of the
paper.
HOG STICK WOUNDS
The traveling inspector recently reported that the inspector in charge of the
Federal meat-inspection service at Sioux City, Iowa, has given particular atten-
tion to reducing to a minimum the exposure of cut surfaces of the necks of hogs
to contamination in the scalding tub. With this in mind he has succeeded in
inducing establishments to make very small stick wounds no larger than the
thickness and width of the sticking knife. In sticking, the knife is inserted
inward and upward in the median line of the neck at a point level with the
knee of the hanging front leg. This permits the flowing blood to leave the car-
cass without lodgment at the lower end of the wound. None of the establish-
ments have offered objection and no improper bleeding has been noted.
APPROVAL OF STENCILS, BOX DIES, AND BRANDS
Referring to previous notices on the subject contained in Service and Regula-
tory Announcements, the following is a supplemental list of names and terms
approved for all establishments, for application by means of stencils, box dies or
brands, and such markings may be applied individually or in combination with
other approved markings, provided the combinations are applicable to the prod-
uct, are not inconsistent and do not result in false or deceptive labeling.
Any of the words or names may be applied in sigular or plural form as may be
appropriate.

[September,


SOUTHEASTERN TEXAS VISITED BY FOOT-AND-MOUTH DISEASE

The following account of the foot-and-mouth situation was issued on Sep-
tember 27:
"The appearance of foot-and-mouth disease on a ranch 15 miles south of
Houston, Tex., has resulted in an order by the United States Department of
Agriculture quarantining Galveston and Harris Counties and portions of Brazoria
and Fort Bend Counties. The disease was not definitely diagnosed as the dread
cattle scourge, foot-and-mouth disease, until Saturday, September 27, but tele-
graphic reports received by the department September 26 so clearly indicated the
disease that quarantine orders were issued immediately that day and active
control measures begun.
"The new outbreak is in no way connected with the infection which appeared
in California last winter and which has been suppressed. A preliminary survey
of the Texas situation gives strong indications that the infection entered sur-
reptitiolsly from South America through a Gulf port.
"The Bureau of Animal Industry immediately assigned 42 experienced in-
spect.'rs to the suppression of the disease in the region quarantined. Most of
these veterinarians are on the ground, others being en route. Texas officials
have signed a contract for cooperation, and steam shovels worked all Friday night
preparing a trench for the slaughter of the infected cattle. The usual methods of
quarantine, inspection, appraisal, slaughter, and deep burial, resulting in the sup-
pression of other outbreaks, will be followed.
J. Boog Scott, chairman of the Livestock Sanitary Commission of Texas, and
Dr. Leon Cloud, State veterinarian of Texas, are on the ground actively cooperat-
ing with Federal forces in directing the work. The United States Department of
Agriculture is represented by Dr. L. J. Allen. inspector in charge of veterinary
field work in Texas, and by Dr. T. W. Cole, his assistant. Dr. Marion Imes, a
Federal veterinarian of long experience in foot-and-mouth disease control, is en
route to Houston and will direct the Federal force in the work of eradication.
"Thus far the disease, which appeared in one outfit of 400 cattle, has spread
to only one additional herd, on an adjacent, ranch. The terrain is flat, cattle in
the region are accustomed to being handled, and most of the surrounding ranches
are under fence. In fact the conditions in general are favorable for the eradica-
tion work. The Department of Agriculture has notified livestock authorities
and -unitary officials of the various States."

106 BUREAU OF ANIMAL INDUSTRY [Septf-mber,

PERMITTED DISINFECTANT

In accordance with the provisions contained in the regulations of this depart-
ment governing the interstate movement of livestock, (B. A. I. Order 273.) the
bureau has granted permission for the use of Mapco 50% Cresol Compound, "
manufactured by Michel & Pelton Co., 639 Howard Street, San Francisco.
Calif., as a saponified cresol solution, in the general disinfection of cars, yards,
and other premises.


PERMITTED DIP FOR CATTLE FOR .TICKS

"Curts-Folse Lime and Sulphur Solution," a lime and sulphur dip, is per-
mitted by the department in the official dipping of cattle and sheep for scabies.
Dilutions permitted: For cattle, 1 gallon of the dip to not more than 15 gallons
of water; for sheep, 1 gallon of the dip to not more than 20Y4 gallons of water.



TELEGRAMS

Secretary's Memorandum 458, dated November 23, 1923, gives the following
instriicti:'on., about telegrams:
Employees filing official telegrams at field points in cases where messages can not be delivered during
business hours on the day of filing sometimes fail to employ night-rate service as required by paragraph 81
of the Fiscal Regulations.
The superintendent of telegraph has been instructed to deliver all Washington incoming messages
through the appropriate bureau visaing officers. A special report to chiefs of bureaus will be made in
instances where day telegraph service appears to have been improperly employed, or where careless con-
struction or the use of unnecessary words has occasioned an unnecessary charge against Government fundF.


PERSONNEL POLICY OF THE DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE

Secretary's Memorandum 501, dated September 10, 1924, indicates the policy
of the department with regard to personnel as follows:
1. The present personnel policy contemplates that additions shall be made only where by reason of duly
authorized increases in work or other equ.illy specific causes such additions arc shown to be absolutely
necessary. and that reductions in force shall be made wherever practicable. Ad ministrative officers of
th-. kpirt meant shouldd canvass their personnel situations carefully now and at regular intervals hereafter
in order to a'sure the maintenance of only the minimum force needed to perform effective work.
2. Recommendations for appoiutmnent should continue to indicate whether for the purpose of filling
vacancies or to c .-stitute increases in force. If the latter, it must be clearly shown in each case that the
increase is nte.;s-;ry and the specific reason for it briefly stated.
3. Employee. whose services cm be dispensed with should be dropped from the rolls.
4. With the abolishing of the statutory rolls th ie- is more opportunity than previously to (lear the salary
rolls of surplus employees or of those who do not give proper attention to their work, if there be such em-
ployees, not only for reasons of general economy in the Expenditur,: of the t.ixpay.er's money but :-lso in
order that funds may be made available to compensate :dequately: those employees who by reason of their
e ip' ;t'v and industry become deserving of such recognition.



EMPLOYEES' ABSENCE WITHOUT PAY

If an employee is absent without pay between the date of forwarding pay roll
to Washingtin arid the close of the month it will be unnecessary to advise the
bureau by wire, as heretofore, unless the employee is quitting the service or t here
is a chance of his not working sufficient time in the next month to cover the
overpayment. 0
Unless one of the above-mentioned conditions prevails the bureau should be
advised of leave of absence without pay by letter, accompanied by a corrected
time report and the necessary deduction made from the employee's salary claim
for the following month.
These instructions will not apply to the month of June (the close of the fiscal
year), since an overpayment in one fiscal year can not be deducted from a claim
in another fiscal year. For the month of June, therefore, the bureau should be
advised by wire (night message whenever possible) as heretofore.
These instructions will supersede those issued heretofore on this subject.

102 BUREAU OF ANil\L\.L ISDl_TSTRT [ !-:,ep, t e m ber, SOUTHEASTERN TEXAS VISITED BY FOOT-AND-MOUTH DISEASE The following account of thefoot-and-mouth situation was issued on September 27: " T h e appearance of foot-and-mouth di ea~e on a ranch 15 miles south of Houston, Tex., has resulted in an order by the United States Department of _.\..griculture quarantining Galveston and Harris Counties and portions of Brazoria and Fort Bend Counti es. The disease w a s not definite l y diagnosed as the dread cattle scourge, foot-and-mouth di ease, until ,:'aturday, September 27, but telegraphic reports received by the departmen t September 26 so c learly indicated the d i seas e that quarantine orders were is~u e d immediately that day and active control measures begun. "The new outbreak is in no way connected wi t h the infection whic h appeared in California last winter and which has been suppressed. A preliminary survey o f the Texas situation gives strong indication that the infection entered surr e p t i t iously from South America through a Gulf port. ,: The Bureau of Animal Industry immediately assigned 42 experienced in-pec t r to the suppres sion of the di ea e in the region quarantined. Most of t h ese veterinarians are on the ground, others b eing en route. Texas officials have signed a con tract for cooperati on , and steam hovel s worked all Friday night preparing a trench for the slaughter of the infected cattl e . The usual methods of quarantin e, inspection, appraisal, slaughter, and d ee p burial , resulting in the suppression of other outbreaks, will be followed. " J. Boog Scott, chairman of the Livestock Sanitary Commission of Texas, and Dr. Leon Cloud, State veterinarian of Texas, are o n the ground active l y cooperating with Federal forces in directing the work. The United States Department of Agriculture is represented by Dr. L . J. Allen inspector in charge of veterinary field work in Texas, and by Dr. T. W. Cole, his assistant. Dr. Marion Imes, a F ederal veterinarian of long experience in foot-and-mouth disease control , is en r ou t e to Houston and will direct the Federal force in the work of eradication. "Thus far the disease, which appeared in one outfit of 400 cattle, has spread t o only one additional herd, on an adjacent ranch.

1.06 BUREAU OF ANIMAL INDUSTRY [S ptember, PERMITTED DISINFECT ANT In accordance with the provisions contained in the regulations of this department governing the interstate movement of livestock, (B. A. I. Order 273,) the bureau has granted permission for the use of "Mapco 50% Cresol Compound," manufactured by Michel & Pelton Co., 639 Howard Street, San Franci co, Calif., a a saponified cresol solution, in the general disinfection of cars, yards, and other premises. PERMITTED DIP FOR CATTLE FOR . TICKS "Curts-Folse Lime and Sulphur Solution," a lime and sulphur dip, i s permitted by the department in the official dipping of cattle and sheep for scabies. Dilutions permitted: For cattle , 1 gallon of the dip to not more than 15 gallons of water; for sheep, 1 gallon of the dip to not more than 20 gallon of water. TELEGRAMS Secretary's Memorandum 458, dated November 23, 1923, gives the following instruction about telegrams: Employees filing official telegrams at field points in cases where messages can not be delivered during business homs on the day of filing sometimes fail to employ night-rate service as required by paragraph 81 of the Fiscal Regulations. The superintendent of telegraph has been instructed to deliver all Washington incoming messages through the appropriate bureau viseing officers. A special report to chiefs of bureaus will be made in instances where day telegraph service appears to have been improperly employed, or where careless con struction or the use of unnecessary words has occasioned an unnecessary charge against Government funds. PERSONNEL POLICY OF THE DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE Secretary's Memorandum 50 1, dated September 10, 1924, indicates the policy of the department with regard to personnel as follows: 1. The present personnel policy contemplates that additions shall be made only where by reason of duly authorized increases in work or other equally specific causes such additions are shown to be absolutely necessary, and that reductions in force shall be made wherever practicable. Administrative officers of the department should canvass their p rsonnel situations careful l y now and at regular intervals hereafter in order to assure the maintenance of only the minimum force needed to perform effective work. 2. R e commend a tions for appointment hould continue to indicate whether for the purpose of filling vacancies or to constitute increases in force. If the latter, it must be clearly shown in each case that the increase is nece sary and the specific reason for it briefly stated. 3. Employees whose services can be dispensed with should be dropped from the rolls. 4. With the abolishing of the statutory rolls there is more opportunity than previously to clear the salary rolls of surplus employees or of those who do not give proper attention to their work, if there be such em ployees, not only for reasons of general economy in the expenditure of the taxpayer's money but also in order that funds may be made available to compensate adequate l y those employees who by reason of their c a pacity and industry become deserving of such recognition. EMPLOYEES' ABSENCE WITHOUT PAY If an employee is absent without pay between the date of forwarding pay roll to Washington arid the close of the month it will be unnecessary to advi e the bureau by wire a heretofore, unless the employee is quitting the service or there is a chance of his not working sufficient time in the next month to cov r the ov rpayment. • ~nle s one of the above-mentioned conditions prevails the bureau should be advi ed of leave of ab, ence without pay by letter, accompanied by a corr ctect time r port and the nece ary deduction made from the employee' alary claim for the f llowing month. The e in truction will not apply to the month of June (the close f the fi cal y ar), sin e an overpayment in one fiscal year can n t be deducted fr m a claim in another fi cal year. F r the month of June, theref re, the bureau should be advi ed by wire (night m age whenever pos ible) a heretofore. The e in tru ti n, will upersede tho e i ued her tofor on this , ubj t.
