Representative Crumpacker of Indiana In
troduced a bill today as a substitute for
the Beverldge meat Inspection amendment
placed In the agricultural bill In the sen
ate. The bill defines the authority which
may be vested In the secretary of agricul
ture so as not to conflict with the police
powers of the state. Provision is made
whereby the secretary of agriculture may
accept the inspection of state officers as to
the sanitary condition of packing houses.
Where such state Inspection Is accepted
by the secretary federal Inspection in
transit will not be made.
Mr. Crumpacker believes that the Beve

spection of packing houses Is a violation
of the police powers of the state and that
all of the rulings sustain this position.
