Section 1427 of Title 8, U.S.C. provides in part

as follows:

(a) No person * * * shall be naturalized unless

such petitioner * * * during all the period referred

to in this subsection has been and still is a person

of good moral character * * *


Appellant's petition for naturalization was denied

by the District Court on November 17, 1954. The

Court by its order (R. 7) adopted the recommenda-

tion of the Naturalization Examiner, R. S. Sullivan

(R. 8), that the petition be denied, "For failure to

establish good moral character for the period required

by law."

Appellant, a native of Canada, was admitted to

the United States on April 5, 1948 ; thereafter she filed

her petition for naturalization on June 1, 1953.

The only evidence on behalf of appellant in this

case consists of the Petition for Naturalization, with

attached affidavits from two witnesses, the transcript

of appellant's interrogation before Immigration and

Naturalization examiners, Sullivan and Miller, on

February 9, 1954 (beginning R. 12) and again the

transcript of her testimony before the District Court
