$ 5.1 Types of leave. Leaves are of the following types:

(a) A short term leave, for not more than sixty days, for attending to affairs requiring the applicant's presence outside the relocation area;

The Director will secure from the Federal Bureau of Investigation such information as may be obtainable and will take such additional steps as may be necessary to determine the probable effect of the issuance of indefinite leave to the applicant upon the war program and upon the public peace and security. The Director will thereupon approve or disapprove the application and instruct the project director accordingly. A person whose application for leave clearance is disapproved shall be ineligible to receive indefinite leave and shall be transferred to the Tule Lake Center in northern California. A person resident at the Tule Lake Center whose application for leave clearance is approved shall be transferred to another center.

(c) Indefinite leave may be issued prior to approval of an application for leave clearance only in accordance with instructions issued by the Director from time to time. In the case of each application for indefinite leave, the Director will cause such steps to be taken as may be necessary to satisfy himself concerning the applicant's willingness to make the reports required of him under the provisions of this part, his means of support, the conditions and factors affecting his successful maintenance of residence at the proposed destination, the probable effect of the issuance of the leave upon the war program and upon the public peace and security, and such other conditions and factors as may be relevant. The Director will issue instructions covering the issuance or denial of indefinite leave in each such case. The project director shall issue or deny indefinite leaves pursuant to such instructions.

(d) A leave shall issue to an applicant in accordance with his application in each case, subject to the provisions of this part and under the procedures herein provided, as a matter of right, where the applicant agrees to make the reports required of him under the provisions of this part and to comply with all applicable provisions hereof, where there is no reasonable cause to believe that he will not have employment or other means of support or that he cannot otherwise successfully maintain residence at the proposed destination, and where there is no reasonable cause to believe that the issuance of leave in the particular case will interfere with the war program or otherwise endanger the public peace and security.

(e) Such special conditions may be attached to the leave to be issued in a particular case as may be necessary in the public interest. The special conditions to be so attached shall be governed by instructions issued from time to time. Every leave issued under the provisions of this part shall state the conditions that are applicable thereto.

(f) The project director shall promptly notify the applicant of the approval or disapproval of an application for leave or leave clearance, and of any special conditions attached to the approval of an application for leave, with a statement of the reasons therefor. In the case where the application for leave has been disapproved, or has been approved subject to special conditions, the project director shall advise the applicant of his right to appeal under the provisions of $ 5.4.

(g) An applicant shall be required to arrange with the project director, in conformity with the applicable instructions of the Director, to provide for the support of any dependents of the applicant left in a relocation center.

(h) The project director shall promptly notify the Director of the names of any persons who have failed to return to the relocation center upon expiration of leave.

$ 5.4 Appeals; requests for reconsideration.

The applicant may submit any supplemental written statement he wishes in support of the appeal. Within five days following receipt of such an appeal, the project director shall transmit the appeal and all related papers to the Director, together with any supplemental statement he believes necessary or desirable.

(b) Every person resident at the Tule Lake Center whose application for leave clearance has been disapproved shall upon written request be entitled to reconsideration of his case by the Director. Prior to such reconsideration the request shall be referred to a board of persons designated by the Director who are not employed by the War Relocation
