.M.1 ;. DEATH OF DR. E. I. SMITH
l 'iT death on February 18 at Nashville, Tenn., of Dr. E. I. Smith, veterinary
uInpector of the Bureau of Animal Industry, in charge of tuberculosis eradica-
1 and hog-cholera control in Tennessee, came as a shock to his many friends
i vate and official life. He suffered a stroke of apoplexy two days previously,
on which he did not rally.
I, :fMctor Smith was born at Randolph, N. Y., November 11, 1874. He attended
I. i school in his home town and later entered New York State Veterinary
le, Cornell University, from which he graduated in the class of 1903 with
: fie degree of D. V. M. He entered the service of the bureau October 1, 1906
i ;asnadsigned to meat inspection at Newark, N. J. He filled various posi-
ins and in 1916 was placed in charge of tick eradication in Louisiana. In
19' 6 he was transferred to Connecticut and given .charge of tuberculosis eradi-
cation in that State, and later he was given the assignment in Teqpessee which
he hyd at the time of his death.
li fthe 'discharge of his duties Doctor Smith displayed intelligence and good
judgment. His genial personality endeared him to all with whom he came
into contact, and lWs zeal in the public service together with his tact in dealing
with fellow employees and the public made him a valuable employee to the
S. Government.
Doctor Smith is survived by his wife and one daughter. They accompanied
S0 remains to Randolph, N. Y., where the funeral took place.


NOTICES REGARDING MEAT INSPECTION
APPROVAL OF EMBOSSED ESTABLISHMENT NUMBER AND STATEMENT OF WEIGHT
J. The term "Establishment," or authorized abbreviations, "Est." and "Estab.,"
followed by the establishment number, embossed in covers or bottoms of metal.
containers, are: hereby covered under blanket approval. There is also covered
under blanket approval the statement of the net weight embossed on the sides
or covers of containers. The foregoing obviates the necessity of specific approval
|1: of metal bottoms bearing only the embossed establishment number, metal tops
r bearing only the embossed establishment number or statement of weight, and
sI aides of metal containers bearing no embossed features other than the statement
of weight. The balance of the labeling requires approval in conformity with
existing regulations and rulings on the subject.
CLEAN CASINGS
Hog-bung casings intended for containers of sausage or other edible product,.
in addition to being otherwise clean 'and suitable for such purpose, shall be
f ii. from hair and scurf at the crown end when presented for inspection prior
to filling. .
-hExcessive deposits of fat shall be removed from hog bungs and other animal
castingsgs, including bladders, prior to presenting the casings for inspection.

AMENDMENT TO ADMINISTRATIVE REGULATIONS *
UNIFORMITY IN SIGNS, NOTICES, DIRECTORIES, ETC. *,i.'
By memorandum No. 518 of the office of the Secretary, dated -ebru"a ::
9, 1925, the Administrative Regulations of the department are amended by ..
inserting, after paragraph 722, the following:
"723. Wherever practicable, the following general form should be used here-
after in indicating:the location of offices and activities of the department in all 0
notices, memoranda, building directories, signs on buildings, doors, windows,
etc., and all other places where the work of the department is brought to the
attention of the public.
"The 'United States Department of Agriculture' should come first in bold
letters; the bureau or office represented should come next, in type not lag
than the first, and this may be followed by any other necessary or deirttWM :i
subheading. As a rule the names of officials should not appear. The folloeng
are examples:
I. S. DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULt'URE '
WEATHER BUREAU .. .

U. S. DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE :
FOREST SERVICE ..,:
NORTHEASTERN EXPERIMENT STATION

"Existing signs need not be changed, but in ordering new signs any mar
deviation from the foregoing specifications which may seem desirable should .
submitted with a statement of the reasons therefore, through appropriate chaffieM
to the chief clerk of the department for authorization."
-,, .* .. ,*, .
AMENDMENT TO FISCAL REGULATIONS. .
ACTUAL TRAVELING EXPENSES ,
By memoranda Nos. 515 and 520 of the office of the Secretary, dated, re& iil
tively, January 28 and February 19, 1925, section (f) of paragraph 33 oft' tl
Fiscal Regulations of the department is amended to read as follows: .
"33. Actual traveling expenses.
"(f) The checking and porterage of baggage at depots, hotels, or docks upodli|
arrival and departure, charges for checking not in excess of prevailing rate,
and porterage for each piece not to exceed 25 cents at docks and 10 cents in h gi
other case: Provided, That because of State laws reimbursement for theb'pa
ment of any porter fee herein mentioned, other than to station or doek
will not be allowed in Mississippi, Tennessee, or Arkansas." ,64
In recent decision of the Comptroller General of the United States (6. Ci
Gen., 410) it was held that fees to station porters for the carrying of heavf h :
baggage do not constitute a "gratuity" or "tip" within the meaning of the i
tipping laws, and that employees are entitled to reimbursement for feet pa0tr i:
station porters. The regulations are, therefore, amended accordingly. T'<'l.'!
change is made because heretofore porter fees were not allowed in antitt$l0 '
States by the regulations. '





By memorandum No. 519 of the office of the Secretary, dated February 10,
1925, section (h) of paragraph 33 of the Fiscal Regulations of the department is
amended to read as follows:
"33. Aetutl traveling expenses.
-- "(h) Customary charges for subsistence (except as provided in 33-r) not to
exceed $5 in any one day.
"Subsistence will include the following expenses incurred when absent from
official station:
"1. Meals.-In the absence of explanation of necessity the following table will
govern the allowance of charges for meals taken en route upon departure from
Of atrival at official station:
"Breakfast when departure is before or arrival is after 8 a. m.
"Dinner when departure is before or arrival is after 1 p. m.
"Supper when departure is before 7 p. m. or arrival is after 6 p. m."
In a'.decision of the Comptroller General dated January 27, 1925 (A-5786),
it was held that the fixing by administrative regulations of 7 p. m. instead of
6 p. mn. with reference to the evening meal on departure is acceptable as the
establishment of a reasonable basis for accounting purposes and may be applied
in the audit of accounts paid by a disbursing officer after promulgation of said
regulation. The regulations are therefore amended accordingly.



HOTEL RATES FOR GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES

The following list of hotels offering reduced rates on rooms for officers and
employees*of the Government traveling on official business is given in circular
No. 147 of the Bureau of the Budget, dated January 12, 1925. It supersedes
all previous lists and includes all hotels which at this time offer such reduced
rates through the medium of that bureau.
Instances have come to the attention of the Bureau of the Budget in which
misunderstandings have arisen between hotel employees and applicants for
reduced rates. It is suggested that if officers and employees of the Government
ascertain the regular rates when they apply for accommodations, show their
credentials, and ask for the reduction, before registering, misunderstandings will
be largely avoided. It is believed that the presentation of travel order or other
official instructions will constitute sufficient identification for this purpose.
Should any hotel listed in this circular decline to grant the reduction indicated
(provided the applicant has furnished proper identification and claimed reduc-
tion at time of registering), the Bureau of the Budget should be promptly in-
formed.

SMITH The death on February 18 at Nashville, Tenn., of Dr. E. I. Smith, veterinary inspector of the Bureau of Animal Industry, in charge of tuberculosis eradication and hog-cholera control in Tennessee, came as a shock to his many friends in private and official life. He suffered a stroke of apoplexy two days previously, from which he did not rally. Doctor Smith was born at Randolph, N. Y., November 11, 1874. He attended high school in his home town and later entered New York State Veterinary College, Cornell University, from which he graduated in the class of 1903 with the degree of D. V. M. He entered the service of the bureau October 1, 1906 and was assigned to meat inspection at Newark, N. J. He filled various positions and in 1916 was placed in charge of tick eradication in Louisiana. In 1920 he was transferred to Connecticut and given charge of tuberculosis eradication in that State, and later he was given the assignment in TeQnessee which he held at the time of his death. In the discharge of his duties Doctor Smith displayed intelligence and good judgment. His genial personality endeared him to all with whom he came into contact, and his zeal in the public service together with his tact in dealing with fellow employees and the public made him a valuable employee to the Government. Doctor Smith is survived by his wife and one daughter. They accompanied the remains to Randolph, N. Y., where the funeral took place. NOTICES REGARDING MEAT INSPECTION APPROVAL OF EMBOSSED ESTABLISHMENT NUMBER AND STATEMENT OF WEIGHT The term" Establishment," or authorized abbreviations, "Est." and "Estab.," followed by the establishment number, embossed in covers or bottoms of metal containers, are hereby covered under blanket approval. There is also covered under blanket approval the statement of the net weight embossed on the sides or covers of containers. The foregoing obviates the necessity of specific approval of metal bottoms bearing only the embossed establishment number, metal tops bearing only the embossed establishment number or statement of weight, and sides of metal containers bearing no embossed features other than the statement of weight. The balance of the labeling requires approval in conformity with existing regulations and rulings on the subject. CLEAN CASINGS Hog-bung casings intended for containers of sausage or other edible product, in addition to being otherwise clean 'and suitable for such purpose, shall be free from hair and scurf at the crown end when presented for inspection prior to filling. Excessive deposits of fat shall be removed from hog bungs and other animal casings, including bladders, prior to presenting the casings for inspection.

By memorandum No. 518 of the office of the Secretary, dated February 9, 1925, the Administrative Regulations of the department are amended by inserting, after paragraph 722, the following: "723. Wherever practicable, the following general form should be used hereafter in indicating the location of offices and activities of the department in all notices, memoranda, building directories, signs on buildings, doors, windows, etc., and all other places where the work of the department is brought to the attention of the public. "The 'United States Department of Agriculture' should come first in bold letters; the bureau or office represented should come next, in type not larger than the first, and this may be followed by any other necessary or desirable subheading. As a rule the names of officials should not appear. The following are examples: U. S. DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE WEATHER BUREAU U. S. DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE FOREST SERVICE NORTHEASTERN EXPERIMENT STATION "Existing signs need not be changed, but in ordering new signs any material deviation from the foregoing specifidations which may seem desirable should be submitted with a statement of the reasons therefor, through appropriate channels to the chief clerk of the department for authorization." AMENDMENT TO FISCAL REGULATIONS ACTUAL TRAVELING EXPENSES By memoranda Nos. 515 and 520 of the office of the Secretary, dated, respectively, January 28 and February 19, 1925, section (f) of paragraph 33 of the Fiscal Regulations of the department is amended to read as follows: "33. Actual traveling expenses. "(f) The checking and porterage of baggage at depots, hotels, or docks upon arrival and departure, charges for checking not in excess of prevailing rates, and porterage for each piece not to exceed 25 cents at docks and 10 cents in any other case: Provided, That because of State laws reimbursement for the payment of any porter fee herein mentioned, other than to station or dock porters, will not be allowed in Mississippi, Tennessee, or Arkansas." In recent decision of the Comptroller General of the United States ( 4 Comp. Gen., 410) it was held that fees to station porters for the carrying of heavy hand baggage do not constitute a "gratuity" or "tip" within the meaning of the anti tipping laws, and that employees are entitled to reimbursement for fees paid to station porters. The regulations are, therefore, amended accordingly. The change is made because heretofore porter fees were not allowed in antitipping States by the regulations.

1925] SER.VI C E AND REGULATORY ANNOUNCEMENT S 19 By memorandum No. 519 of the office of the Secretary, dated February 10, 1925, section (h) of paragraph 33 of the Fiscal Regulations of the d epartment is amended to read as follows: " 33. Actual traveling expenses. "(h) Customary charges for subsistence (except as provided in 33-r) not t o exceed $5 in any one day. "Subsistence will include the following expens es incurred whe n absent from official station: "1. Meals.-In the absence of explanation of nece ssity the following t a ble will govern the allowance of charges for meals taken en route upon d eparture fro m or arrival at official station: "Breakfast when departure i s before or arrival i s afte r 8 a . m. "Dinner when departure is before or arrival is after 1 p. m. "Supper when departure is before 7 p . m. or arrival is after 6 p . m." In a decision of the Comptroller General dated January 27 , 1925 (A-5786), it was held that the fixing by administrative regulations of 7 p . m. instead of 6 p. m. with reference to the evening meal on departure is acceptable as the establishment of a reasonable basis for accounting purpos es and may be applied in the audit of accounts paid by a disbursing officer after promulgation of said regulation. The regulations are therefore amended a ccordingly . HOTEL RATES FOR GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES The following list of hotels offering reduced rates on rooms for offi cers and employees•of the Government traveling on official business is given in circular No. 147 of the Bureau of the Budget, dated January 12, 1925. It supersedes all previous lists and includes all hotels which at this time off er such reduced rates through the medium of that bureau. Instances have come to the attention of the Bureau of the Budget in which misunderstandings have arisen between hotel employees and applicants for reduced rates. It is suggested that if officers and employees of the Government ascertain the regular rates when they apply for accommodations, show their credentials, and ask for the reduction, before r e gistering, misunderstandings will be largely avoided. It is believed that the presentation of travel order or other official instructions will constitute sufficient identification for this purpose. Should any hotel listed in this circular decline to grant the reduction indicated (provided the applicant has furnished proper identification and claimed reduction at time of registering), the Bureau of the Budget should be promptly informed.
