S. Č. 136), he shall be so certified, and shall be allowed to appeal to a board of surgeons, and, in mental cases, to introduce an expert witness of his own choice before such board, if he so desires, the time and place of the convening of the board to be fixed by the medical officer in charge.* (Secs. 16, 84, 89 Stat. 885, 896, secs. 19, 20 (t), 43 Stat. 164; 8 U.

These certificates shall in every case of disability, the nature of which is definitely ascertained, state whether the same can likely be cured within 30 days. Certificates rendered in suspected cases will state, when the circumstances permit, the nature of the disability suspected and approximately, the period of observation believed necessary to final determination of the nature of the disability.

In the case of any such vessel carrying passengers where the medical officer certifies that such alien was so afflicted at the time he was shipped or engaged and taken on board such vessel and that the existence of such affliction might have been detected by means of a competent medical examination at such time, the official in charge at the port of arrival shall serve or cause to be served on the owner, agent, consignee, or master of such vessel a notice in writing that liability for the fine imposed by section 35 of the Immigration Act of 1917 (89 Stat. 896; 8 U.
