RADIOGRAMS AND RADIO TELEPHONE. For information apply to the Radio Office on Boat-deck.

GAMES of HAZARD are prohibited.

RESTRICTIONS. Passengers are restricted to the class, accommodations, decks, shop etc. for which their tickets call, unless an important reason can be proved for entering the accommodation reserved for another class. The purser will in such case give the permission required.

CUSTOMS DECLARATION FOR BAGGAGE. Every passenger entering the United States must make a »Baggage declaration and entry» which will be supplied by the Purser’s Office. Passengers must state in their declarations the prices actually paid for all articles purchased abroad and fair values for all articles obtained otherwise than by purchase, such as gifts, etc. Failure to observe this may result in imposing of severe penalties.

EXAMINATION ON Arrival. The data of information which, before embarking, each passenger supplies about himself, are entered upon so-called »Manifests» for handing to Immigration Authorities at the port of destination. The Authorities concerned then being in possession of such data, it is most important that the passengers at their examination on disembarking should be careful not to make any statement not in accordance with those previously given.

Arrival IN NEW YORK. Passengers are landed at Pier No. 97, Foot of West 57th Street. When the required examination by the immigration officials has been completed and the landing cards stamped, passengers should have their stateroom baggage brought ashore by the bedroom steward. After having ascertained that all baggage corresponding with the entry on the »baggage declaration» is available on the pier, the passenger should proceed to the Custom Assignment Desk and there present coupon detached on board from the »baggage declaration». A custom inspector will be assigned for inspection of the baggage, and after its completion the passenger should have one of the uniformed porters convey the baggage outside the custom's enclosure. Passengers desiring to have their baggage transferred by express to railroad station or local address, will find Express service immediately outside the baggage enclosure.

Passengers are specially requested to claim their bag-gage before leaving the custom’s baggage enclosure on the pier, as otherwise considerable delay and extra charge will be incurred for storage and in forwarding to destination of any baggage not accompanying passengers on railway.

AN INFORMATION BOOTH with representatives from the Line in attendance will be found immediately opposite the gangway.

PUBLIC TELEPHONES. Booths will be found on the middle of and at the exit of the pier.

TAXICABS can be rented at the exit of the pier.

FORWARDING of PASSENGERS. For the convenience of all passengers disembarking at our pier in New York, who are destined to interior points, the Railroad Lines out of New York have representatives on the pier to meet passengers and arrange to issue railroad orders, exchangeable at the resp. depot to all points in the United States, Canada and Mexico. These representatives will also arrange to check baggage through from our pier to destination, relieving passengers ot the formality of re-checking their baggage at the depot. Transfer charges from our pier to rail depots or steamship dock must be paid by passengers.

SERVICE — Although the war is over, normal conditions have not been restored. Despite our earnest desire to please and satisfy our passengers, circumstances may, at times, prevent our performing the services we would ordinarily give. We would appreciate it if you would bear this in mind, as we hope to continue to enjoy your patronage and good will. However, there may be instances when, owing to misunderstandings, just cause for complaint arises. We wish to impress upon passengers the importance of making such complaints to the Purser, or to the Commander when they make their daily rounds of inspection.
