of traveler, etc. Section 7.1 Standard transportation request forms. The following standard forms of Government request for transportation are hereby prescribed and published for general use throughout the Government service, effective December 1, 1925, in lieu of standard transportation forms 1, 2, 3 and 4 prescribed by Treasury Department Circular No. 49, June 19, 1915 :
Form 1028, Cover of transportation book (front, outside and inside, and back, outside).
Form 1029, Tabulation sheet (insert).
Form 1031, Transportation request (memorandum). (Secs. 309, 311 (f), 42 Stat. 25; 31 U.S.C. 49, 52 (f)) [Sec. 1, Regs. 46, Oct. 16, 19251
7.2 Issuance of transportation requests by traveler; carrier's identification of traveler, etc. When transportation requests, issued in blank to a traveler, are used by him to obtain transportation, he will sign them as issuing officer. When a traveler signs a request both as issuing officer and traveler, the carrier will require him to exhibit the book from which the request was taken, in order to ascertain the name of the person to whom such book was issued, and will then require him to establish his identity, by an official card provided for the purpose, as the person to whom such book was issued. Such official card should show the name (including surname) and title of the traveler, and date of issue; should indicate generally the traveler's duties sufficiently to demonstrate the authority for the transportation and incidental services requested; should be signed *For statutory citation, see note to 8 6.1.
at time of issue by the administrative officer having immediate supervision over the duties of the traveler and by the head of the department or independent establishment concerned, or bureau or service thereof, or someone duly authorized to sign for them; and should be countersigned by the traveler.
In order that there may be uniformity in practice and form in connection with the identification of a traveler by the agent of a carrier to whom a transportation request signed by the traveler both as issuing officer and traveler is presented for the purpose of securing transportation, there is hereby prescribed and published for general use throughout the Government service, effective July 1, 1926, Standard Form 1033, United States Government transportation identification card.
The identification card must be filled out at the time of its issue to the traveler by the administrative officer having immediate supervision over his duties, whose duty it is to issue to him the book or books of transportation requests in blank for his use, and it must be signed by said issuing officer. The signature of the issuing officer on the card and on Standard Form 1029 must agree, and this fact should be observed by the carrier as part of the evidence of the right of the traveler to negotiate the transportation request presented, in addition to comparison of the traveler's signature on the transportation request with his signature on the identification card. The card must also be signed, in his own bona fide handwriting, by the head of the department or establishment, or bureau or service concerned, or by someone authorized to sign for him. The size of the card will be 21/2" x 414"; color, light blue.
The standard form of identification card will be used exclusively for the purpose
of identifying a traveler as herein required, and carriers will not accept any other form of identification except in an emergency and then only when the traveler is able to satisfactorily explain his inability to furnish an identification card on the standard form and is able by other official means to sufficiently establish his identity. (Secs. 309, 311 (f), 42 Stat. 25; 31 U.S.C. 49, 52 (f)) [Secs. 5, 6, Regs. 46, Oct. 26, 1925, secs. 2, 3, 5, Regs. 46, Supp. 1, May 6, 1926]

7.3 Carriers' publicity of traveler's identification requirements. Carriers are requested to give prompt and full publicity to the requirements of the regulations in Parts 6-11, and to enjoin their agents that they must assure themselves of the identity of a traveler who presents a request for the purpose of securing transportation, especially where he signs same as issuing officer as well as receipts thereon for transportation furnished. In the latter case the standard card should invariably be demanded and the identification made complete.

The following standard forms covering the shipment, transportation and delivery of Government property by transportation companies are hereby prescribed and published for general use throughout the Government service, in lieu of standard transportation forms 5, 6, 7 and 8 prescribed by Treasury Department Circular No. 49, June 19, 1915, and other forms of like character now being used by departments and independent establishments to accomplish the purpose of the standard forms herein prescribed:
Form 1058, Bill of lading (original).
Extra Sheet (revised).
Extra Sheet (Memorandum Copy).
Extra Sheet (Shipping Order). Standard Form 1062, as revised, will be printed on suitable white paper and will be used as an extra or continuation sheet for the original bill of lading, Standard Form 1058, or the temporary receipt, Standard Form 1060, or the certificate in lieu of lost bill of lading, Standard Form 1061.
Standard Form 1062a will be printed on suitable yellow paper and will be used as an extra or continuation sheet for the memorandum bill of lading, Standard Form 1058a.
Standard Form 1062b will be printed on suitable salmon paper and will be used as an extra or continuation sheet for the shipping order, Standard Form 1059.* [Sec. 1, Regs. 69, Aug. 24, 1928, secs. 1-4, Regs. 69, Supp. 1, Jan. 18, 1934]
*88 8.1 to 8.6, inclusive, issued under the authority contained
8.2 Use of bill of lading forms. As heretofore, the bill of lading set of forms will consist of the original bill of lading containing the description of the articles comprising the shipment, evidence of delivery and the terms and conditions of the contract of transportation, together with the memorandum copy or copies (to be retained for administrative purposes) and the shipping order (to be retained by the carrier). When the bill of lading forms have been completed by the consignor, the property listed therein consigned to the carrier for shipment and the original bill receipted by the agent of the carrier, the consignor should immediately transmit said
original bill to the consignee, so that it may be in his possession upon arrival of the property and be promptly receipted and surrendered by him to the last carrier.
When the shipping order has been otherwise completed, it will be signed by the consignor and delivered to the initial carrier at the time the shipment is made and the bill of lading receipted by its agent. As many copies of the memorandum bill may be made as are required for administrative purposes.* [Secs. 2, 3, Regs. 69, Aug. 24, 1928]
8.3 Use of consignee's temporary receipt. The use of the consignee's temporary receipt (Standard Form 1060) should be limited, as far as practicable, to cases where prompt delivery of shipment is important, or the bill of lading is lost or its receipt seriously delayed. Under no circumstances will transportation charges be paid on a temporary receipt.* [Sec. 4, Regs. 69, Aug. 24, 1928]
8.4 Use of certificate in lieu of lost bill of lading. In the event that the original bill of lading can not be found after diligent effort has been made to locate same, and it is evident that it has been lost or destroyed, a form of “Certificate in Lieu of Lost Bill of Lading” is provided for use as a basis for settlement of the charges for transportation of the property shipped on the original bill. This "Certificate in Lieu of Lost Bill of Lading” will be issued by the consignor upon receipt of information that the original bill of lading has been lost or destroyed, and the fact that a temporary receipt was issued for delivery of the property shipped should be indorsed on the certificate. Likewise when the certificate is received by the carrier for accomplishment of its certificate and waiver, reference to such certificate in lieu of lost bill of lading should be made on the temporary receipt and the certificate and receipt attached to the claim forwarded for payment. It is to be understood that if the original bill of lading is located either by the consignee or carrier before settlement is made on the certificate, said original bill will be substituted therefor, or if located after settlement is so made, it will be forwarded to the administrative office concerned for transmittal to the General Accounting Office.* [Sec. 5, Regs. 69, Aug. 24, 1928]
8.5 Certificate of issuing officer. Attention is invited to the new form of "Certificate of Issuing Officer” contained on the original and memorandum bill of lading and on the certificate in lieu of lost bill of lading. This certificate will be filled out by the Government officer controlling a shipment of Government property by a contractor
*For statutory citation, see note to § 8.1.
from an f.o. b. point named in the contract to the designated point of delivery before said officer issues the bill of lading set of forms to the contractor for accomplishment by him as consignor. In such case at least two copies of the memorandum bill should be included in the set, one to be retained by the contractor-consignor and the other to be returned duly filled out to the issuing officer or as may be directed.* [Sec. 6, Regs. 69, Aug. 24, 1928]
8.6 Department or establishment identification symbols. In printing the numbers on the bill of lading forms (original), (memorandum and shipping order), symbol letters will be used' immediately preceding the numbers and separated therefrom by a hyphen, for purpose of aiding in identification of the department or establishment using same. All parties concerned are requested, in describing bills of lading issued in connection with official correspondence, the rendering of accounts, etc., to include the symbol letter or letters in referring to the numbers.* [Sec. 9, Regs. 69, Aug. 24, 1928]
