When subjected to dive-bombing attack by the enemy planes, he continued the fire of his machine guns with such accuracy that at least three of the hostile air-craft were hit and badly damaged and the enemy forced to discontinue the attack"

Language: English

Abstract: The Philippine Resident Commissioner with the Secretary of the Navy, through the Department of the Interior to allow qualified Filipinos to become officers in the United States Merchant Marine. After the acceptance of the Philippine Independence Act or on June 25. 1936. Congress passed the Merchant Marine Act, which in effect included Filipino seamen among those classified as aliens by nor permitting them to serve in American vessels, cargo or passenger, except within the limitation of the 25 per centum quota, allowed to aliens. On June 29, 1936 another Merchant Marine Act was passed under which Filipino seamen were further excluded from serving in subsidized American cargo vessels. Under this act, Filipino seamen were permitted employment only as members of the Stewards' Department in subsidized American passenger vessels if they fell within the limited percentage of aliens allowed for employment. The suspension of the provisions of this Act as they affect Filipinos, has been nude possible through the Second War Powers Act, 1942, which gives the Secretary of the Navy the authority to waive compliance with the navigation laws to the extent deemed necessary in the conduct of the war. And through this suspension by the Secretary of the Navy, of the citizenship requirements for officers and unlicensed seamen on the United States Merchant Marine vessels, has opened a new avenue for Filipino Seamen toward further participation in the all out war efforts of the United States.
