May 14, 1959

Argued Feb. 6, 1959.

Mr. Charles R. Richey, Washington, D.C., for appellants.

Mr. Harry T. Alexander, Asst. U.S. Atty., with whom Messrs. Oliver Gasch, U.S. Atty., and Carl W. Belcher, Asst. U.S. Atty., were on the brief, for appellee.

Before EDGERTON, WILBUR K. MILLER and FAHY, Circuit Judges.

PER CURIAM.

After the submission of these cases involving questions of derivative citizenship, the court addressed a communication to counsel for the parties to the effect that in view of the importance of the evidence of the result of blood tests of Wong Yem and Wong Kay Suey, and of the relationships of the parties, the court desired counsels' advice as to the desirability of the cases being remanded to the District Court so that the record could be supplemented by evidence of blood tests of Wong Poo Sing; Wong Hung Hai, and Emily Wong. In response, counsel for the appellants and appellee have advised that they are agreeable to remand for the purpose stated. Counsel for appellee adds that if the cases are remanded we should direct that additional evidence be taken in other respects on the issue of paternity.

In view of the foregoing we shall remand the cases so that the record before the District Court may be supplemented by evidence of the results of the blood tests above suggested. See United States ex rel. Lee Kum Hoy v. Murff, 355 U.S. 169, 78 S.Ct. 203, 2 L.Ed.2d 177. Whether
