CITIZENSHIP FOR PORTO RICANS As Soon as They Desire It, Is the Recom mendation of Chief Mclntyre of . the Bureau of Insular , Affairs. . . - , Washington, D. C, Dec. 30. Approval of the extension of vocational educa tion in the Philippines and the imnieili ate grant of American citizenship to those Porto Ricans desiring it, constitute the principal features m the annual re- port of Brigadier-General Frank .Mcln tyre, chief of the bureau of insular-affairs. In his annual report, made public yesterday. General Mclntyre renews "the recommendation for congressional action looking to the biennial inspection of , the insular possessions by a board of visitors made up of representatives of the executive and legislative branches of the government. Discussing education in the Philippines and the refusal of Congress to extend an appropriation to help in this work, General Mclntyre makes no criticism of this attitude on the part of the national legislature, but points out that such financial assistance might "lead to de ' pendence upon this source of revenue and ' result in complications of a more or less serious character if later this assistance I 1 were denied." "It is estimated," General Mclntyre continues, "that probably one-third of .ie children of school ago are now be iing afforded opportunities to acquire at least an elementary education; and while this leaves a great number still to lie reached, many of whom must pass their whole lives without the benefits of education, it is of no less importance that progress along other lines contrib ute simultaneously with the advance in learning, to raising the standards of liv ing in the Philippines. Improved sanitary conditions, new means of communication that will open up regions impracticable to reach now, and other public works are not only essential on their own account, but will permit educational facilities to be sup plied where it is impossible to furnish them now, except at unwarranted ex pense. ''Philippine standards of living are only to be raised and fhilippine progress gen erally to be encouraged by industrial development of the Filipino people. The Philippine government has well recog nized this, and a notable feature of its education is the opportunities it affords for vocational instruction. There is now an enrollment of about 4"0.000 Filipino students in industrial courses and the opportunities generally fur this impor tant instruction compare favorably with opportunities for such education in the United States." English which is spoken and written by more natives than eak and write any other language will, according to the reHrt. become the oflicial court language on January 1, as it hmg has been the official language in the other branches of the government. As to Porto Kican citizenship. General Mclntyre says it is practically the testi mony of everyone familiar with condi tion nn thf. ialiiml territorv that Ik. desire for it is the underlying cause of i largely attended PARCEL POST MAY REDUCE LIVING COST Will Bring the factory and the Farm ' Into Closer Touch With the Con sumer Seme Facts About the New System. .
