Appellant was born in the Philippine Islands in 1910 and lawfully entered the Territory of Hawaii in 1930, where he has resided ever since. In 1949 appellant applied for the issuance of a United States passport. Application was denied on the ground that the appellant became an alien under the Presidential Proclamation of Philippine Independence of July 4, 1946, and hence was not entitled to a passport. Appellant petitioned to have his status declared to be that of a national of the United States. This was resisted on the ground that the intention of the United States Government was to separate Filipinos, regardless of domicile or residence on the date of independence, from any phase of adherence to the United States. Held, that the appellant was no longer a national of the United States. Cabebe v. Acheson, (9th Cir. 1950) 183 F. (2d) 795.
