D.C. JACL Discloses 10-l’oint Program
For Second Session of 83rd Congress
r- avors Issei
Judge Hits World War 1 Classification
SAN FRANCISCO. Calif, Jan. 6
IJACL)—In a sweeping decision ai
fecting hundreds‘o‘f Issei petitioners
for naturalization. Judge Louis E
Goodman of the US. District court
here last Week ruled in favor of Is
sei petitioners who had been classi—
fied 5-F by the Selective Service
during World War I.
In a 10-page decision in the case
of petitioner Kazuichi Tsuji repre
sented by Nisei attorneys Victor A—
be of San Francisco. Wayne Kane—
moto of San Jose and Mas Yonemu—
ra of Oakland. Judge Goodman held
that Section 315‘ Immigration and
Nationality Act of 1952‘ did not ap
ply to non-declarant aliens classi
iied 5-F during World War I. The
Nisei attorneys expressed their gra
tification at Judge Goodman's de
“Obviously it was not the inten—
tion of Congress to deprive (natu-i
ralization privileges of) those who‘
were 5—F in World War 1." Judge!
Goodman stated. and that under}
the 1917 law. non-declarant aliens
which would include the lssei were
not subject to service or duty.
He further stated that it is the
responsibility of all applicants to
pl‘o\'(. their eligibility 101' citizenship
and "the burden of prooi‘ is not on
ihc government"
“I am convinced that me petition
er (Tsuji) has sustiined this burden‘
of proof." Judge Goodman declared.‘
adding, “the claims of the natura
lization examiner that the record
showing that an petitioner was
classified as 5-F is presumptive e
vidence that he ‘applicd‘ for such
‘classification are not sustainable
‘either in fact or in law."
Judge Goodman‘s decision conti-lf
nues‘ “The registration card of the
petitioner shows on the face thathe 1
was a non—declarant alien of Japa- ]
nese ancestry. This alone was suf
ficient it accepted by the draft ‘
board to warrant the classifying of
the petitioner as 5-F- The testimo
ny of the petitioner is that he has
no recollection of filing any term or
document with respect to exemp
tion from military duty in 1918 and
that he recalls signing one docu
ment. namely his registration cer
tificate, It is my conclusion that
assuming the applicability of Sec
tion 315 of the 1952 act that. there
is no evidence presumptive or oth
erwise to show that the petitioner
‘applied‘ for exemption from mili—
i tary service."
