Jaime C. de Veyra, Who Has Just Been Re-elected as Philippine Important Work for Her Peo. Commissioner to the U. S. pie in America. 4;, :t , t ( . .i L THE CHILDREN OF THE PHILIPPINE COMMISSIONER. The Baby of This Group Speaks Three Languages-Visayan, Spanish and English. Permit us to present tie De Veyra family. The lion. Janme C. de Veyra is the Resident Conm nissioner from the Phil ippine Islands to to the United States andl has just been elected to a second termn of three years. As Resident Commis sloner he has a seat on the floor of the American ('onress, the privilege of taking part in debates, although no vote. Commissioner de Veyra has an inter esting wife and four bright Filipino kiddies. The De Veyra family, individ ually and collectively, constitute the best argument as to the tact and capa bilities of Filipinos that the Philippine Islands have in Washington. The commissioner is a 100 per cent Filipino, a Visayan, and is one of the foremost leaders of the party in power in the islands. During American occu pation he has been successively gov ernor of his province, member of the Philippine legislature, cabinet mem ber and executive secretary of the islands. Like many statesmen of the Phillp pines, he was originally a newspaper man. He was one of the founders of El Nuevo Dia of Cebu, the first Fil1 plno paper published advocating Phil Ippine independence. The paper came under the censorship of General Mc Intyre, and on the appearance of the first number the editors were left in the singular position of seeing every prominent article blue penciled. Mrs. de Veyra, like her husband, is a "live wire" in the Philippines' cause. She is the best known Filipina in America. She is an interesting public speaker and is constantly giving illus trated lectures at women's clubs and other gatherings. Mrs. de Veyra is a publicity bureau all in herself and has put the Philippines on the map, so far as the women folk of Washington con gressional circles are concerned. "I find that the Filipino people have been much misrepresented in the UP-It with several assistants. "You and your crew are wanted by the police of May ville for passing counterfeit money. Peter Potts, alias Professor Aboukar Hamad, your career of glory Is over." Miss Wade rushed from the hall In tears. She fled even from her humili ated sisters. A crowd outside jeered and yelled. Some one caught her arm and led her out of the hubbub and commotion. "Oh Robeot," she sobbed, looking up and recenntin g her rescuer. "How ed States," says .Mrs. de Veyra. "I do not muan to infer we are Iperfect, for we are not. My petople have most of the defects, I suppose, that other hu i:nms l:\have, but at the same time we arte far from the people that many Amrerians have been made to believe. Not only are we a Christian people, but our race has a history that we are not ashamnd of. Throughout the Phil ippine Islands the people are now working earnestly to ilnprove them selves and their conditions so they will lte prepared to take over their own af fairs. We all love America for giving us a chance to help ourselves and for having promised us our inadependence, which is one of the dearest dtesires of the entire citizenship of the islands." To American women whose ideas of Filipinos have been f.unded on Sun day supplement descriptions of wild tribes, Mrs. de Veyra's gentle manner and evident culture have been a reve lation. She is sought by women's clubs because of her charming manner as an impromptu speaker on the subject nearest her heart-the women of her country. At a recent Washington gathering she gave In perfect English a concise account of the work of a woman's club In Manila which supplies milk to the babies of the poor and trains mothers to care for their young children. She told of another woman's club which has branches all over the Philippine Islands and which maintains day nurseries for the children of the work. Ing women, provides Christmas cheer for the lepers, the insane and the cen victs, and gathers data to influence leg. Islation for the benefit of Filipino wo men and children. The four little De Veyras, shown ls the picture, having attended the pub. lic schools in Manila, slipped right into the same grades in the schools of Washington. Even little Mary, the baby of the family, speaks three lan guages-her natie tongue, Spanlab and Znglish. can I -look >is pectble people In i face again " "Look me in the face," directed Rob ert seriously, "and assure me that this is your final faddist experiment, and I will see that the incident passes into oblivion." She obeyed him, and so pleading, so penitent was the expression of that tear-stained face that Robert Slmms bent down and kissed it and felt sure that his bride soon to be was safely cured of her folly.
