of time for transit has not expired, and that sufficient time remains to permit of departure from the United States within the period specified; and: Provided further, That such aliens shall surrender to the appropriate immigration officer the certificates issued under 8 11.2.** (Sec. 28 (a), 43 Stat. 168; 8 U.S.C. 224 (a)) [11-C-1]

As to those aliens who arrive at a continental United States port subsequent to the expiration of the period for which temporarily admitted, or whose departure will not occur within the period fixed upon for their departure, the examining officers, if satisfied that it is the intention of such aliens only to remain temporarily in the United States, shall advise them of the necessity for and the manner of making application for extension of their stay. Where there is reason to believe that aliens of the class covered by this part are seeking to remain permanently in the United States, warrant proceedings will be instituted.*1 (Sec. 19, 39 Stat. 889, sec. 14, 43 Stat. 162; 8 U.S.C. 155, 214) [11-D-1]

A resident of Hawaii who intends to depart temporarily from that Territory shall be granted a "Certificate of Citizenship-Hawaiian Islands” by the officer in charge at Honolulu, Hawaii, upon proving to the satisfaction of that official that he is a citizen of the United States, a bona fide resident of the Territory of Hawaii and that he actually intends to depart temporarily. Such certificate may be retained by the person to whom issued. If the officer in charge at Honolulu is not satisfied that the applicant is entitled to this certificate, the application shall be denied and the applicant notified that he may appeal to the Secretary of Labor from the adverse decision. Ten days will be allowed within which to file notice of appeal with such immigration officer. All evidence which was submitted in support of the application shall constitute the record and shall be forwarded to the Central Office in cases where appeals are taken.*i (Sec. 1, 39 Stat. 874; 8 U.S.C. 173) [11-E-1]

destroyed, or mutilated, the Central Office to be advised in each case of the issuance of a duplicate.*+ (Sec. 1, 39 Stat. 874; 8 U.S.C. 173) [11-E-3]

11.8 Hawaiian certificates; form of; preparation. In issuing the certificates described in § 11.5, care shall be exercised to have the original and duplicate correspond in every detail. The certificate shall be prepared upon typewriter. The seal of the issuing officer should be

impressed partly upon the photograph, but in such a manner as not to obscure any part of the face. All blank spaces remaining after writing in the data required to complete the identification of the person to whom the certificate is issued shall be covered by ruled lines so as to prevent the insertion of any additional word or words. Applicants for these certificates shall be required to furnish two suitable unmounted photographs of themselves, printed from the same negative that has not been retouched, representing the subject without hat, full front view, showing both ears, and measuring 2 by 2 inches, the distance from top of head to point of chin to be approximately 11/2 inches. The photographs should be attached to the original and duplicate of the certificate with care to assure permanency and prevent warping. The height shall be carefully taken and inserted in feet and inches, and in recording physical marks and peculiarities those which are the most prominent and least likely to be obliterated by lapse of time shall be selected.*+ (Sec. 1, 39 Stat. 874; 8 U.S.C. 173) (11-E-4]

11.9 Hawaiian certificates; duplicates retained. The duplicates of the certificates shall be filed in the office of the officer in charge at Honolulu, Hawaii, in such order that they may always be accessible for reference.*+ (Sec. 1, 39 Stat. 874; 8 U.S.C. 173) [11-E-5]

These certificates are issued for the purpose of facilitating travel and are to be presented by the person to whom issued to immigration officers as evidence in proof of citizenship for immigration purposes. The proper holders of such certificates, including persons of the Chinese race, will be admitted at any immigration port of entry. When it is ascertained that such a certificate is in the possession of a person to whom it was not issued, as shown by a comparison of such person with the photograph and personal description appearing thereon, or if at any time it should develop that such certificate was secured through fraud, the certificate shall be taken up and forwarded to the Central Office, with a report of the circumstances and recommendation as to whether it should be canceled. If it should be found that cancelation is proper, the certificate shall be returned to the officer in charge at Honolulu with instructions to mark both the original and duplicate thereof "Canceled” and to file the canceled certificate and duplicate for reference.*+ (Sec. 1, 39 Stat. 874; 8 U.S.C. 173) [11-E-6]

12.3 Development of facts relating to penalties incurred by transportation company. In all cases in which there is any reason, other than the issuance of a surgeon's certificate, for believing that any one of the administrative fines prescribed by the law, and specified in Part 23, may have been incurred, boards shall be careful to develop in the course of their hearings all facts and circumstances material to a determination of the transportation company's liability to such fine.** [12–C-1]
