officers in the use of civilian communication
systems by the occupying forces; reestablishment, at the

affairs agencies responsible for supervising communications
will not operate censorship they will be required to cooperate
with its enforcement.
i. Transportation. Cooperation with appropriate arms
and services in connection with military use of private or
state-owned railroads, trucks, busses, vehicles, roads, waterways,
and airfields; reestablishment at the proper time of
all essential civilian transport facilities; control or supervision
of all such facilities.
j. Port Duties. Assistance to port directors; control of
civilian movements in port areas, including civilians who
live in houseboats and small harbor craft; procurement
and control of necessary labor; handling and routing of
supplies ashore and inland; liaison between naval authorities
afloat and ashore and civil affairs organizations ashore.
k. Public Utilities. Cooperation with appropriate
arms and services in procuring, restoring, and controlling
