FOREWORD

This compilation of laws, reorganization plans, and Executive orders affecting the Department of Agriculture is designed to supplement the 1935 Edition of Laws Applicable to the United States Department of Agriculture. The 1935 Edition includes permanent legislation, or legislation not of a clearly temporary character, affecting the Department, its officers, and its employees, enacted up to and including September 6, 1935, the last day on which bills passed by the Seventyfourth Congress, first session, could be approved by the President.

This 1941 Supplement includes legislation of the same character enacted during the period that began on September 7, 1935, and ended on January 13, 1941, the last day on which bills passed by the Seventysixth Congress could be approved by the President.

In addition, the Supplement includes all laws applicable to the Farm Credit Administration, the Federal Farm Mortgage Corporation, the Rural Electrification Administration, and the Commodity Credit Corporation. The Supplement also takes cognizance of the fact that several agencies (the Food and Drug Administration, the Weather Bureau, the Bureau of Public Roads, the Bureau of Biological Survey, and the Foreign Agricultural Service) were transferred from the Department of Agriculture to other agencies of the Government pursuant to the Reorganization Act of 1939. Accordingly, there are reproduced in full the reorganization plans under which the transfers were effected, together with the messages of the President accompanying such plans.

Also, since the publication of the 1935 Edition, it has become apparent that certain legislation, which was enacted before the publication of the 1935 Edition but was not included therein because such legislation was deemed to be of a temporary nature, is permanent in character. Therefore, this legislation is included in the 1941 Supplement.

Basically, the pattern of the 1941 Supplement is the same as that of the 1935 Edition, in that all legislation relating to the same general subject matter is assembled in the same order and under the same title and section headings used in the United States Code. However, because of the fact that no numerical gaps were left in the 1935 Edition between the various titles and sections, it has been necessary to devise a new system of numbering paragraphs in the 1941 Supplement. The system may be described briefly as follows:

(1). Where a statute appearing in the 1935 Edition has been substantially amended, it will appear in amended form under the same paragraph number or numbers in the 1941 Supplement.

(2) Where a statute in the 1935 Edition has been amended only slightly, for example, by the addition of a word or two, the statute, or amended section thereof, will appear in the 1941 Supplement under the same paragraph number as in the 1935 Edition with the addition of the letter "a" (e. g., 114a).
