tions of applicants for naturalization

ure and the substitution of the views
of individual examiners for the natur
alization requirements laid down bj
Congress.

not be mere memory tests, but suet
as to demonstrate whether the appli
cants for citizenship are familiar
with and attached to the principles of
the Constitution.

the danger of extortion or exploitation
of the alien applicant for naturaliza
tion.
