By Jorge Bocobe, Member of the

Washington, May 31 .-The longing.
of the Filipino people for i'ndepend
ence is nourished by a very deep and
1 earnest desire to develop their own
individuality al a nation. When the
Spaniards came, the Filipinos already
had a culture of their own. Almost
every Filipino could read and write.
Although Spanish civilization has
greatly influenced the Filipinos, and
although the young generation is be
neeuated in American ideas, yet
Filipino culture remains at bottom n
digenous. It is the unfolding of this
solofte Filipino race that justifies
the long-standing fight of my people

The Filipinos are not a hermit na
tion. They have taken from the Vest
whatever they thought was good for
them and suitable to their conditions.
But above these outside influences
they want their national genius to
rise and reach higher levels of per
fection. It is thus, and only thus, that
they can fulfill whatever destiny Prov
idence has set for them, and con
tribute their own culture to the gen
eral progress of mankind. A chance
to do so is what they wish when they
