OFFICIAL OPENING of the new consulate building came as the realization of a dream envisioned by Farolan soci 'after his arrival here to assume his post in the late 1946. He observed that although Filipinos constituted the largest for eign element in the Territory they had not yet achieved the prestige and power to which their number and position entitled them. This. he learned stemmed from lack of coordinated efforts among them. Other national groups had erected school buildings and worthwhile institutions as a result of their col lective energies. On the occasion of the first an niversary of Philippine independence, Judy 4, 1947, Farolan proposed a project to acquire through pooling of resources a building which would serve as a permanent living memorial to the industry of Filipinos in the territory. t OTHER considerations which justified the plan were the housing of Filipino community activities, businesses and Philippine government offices.

"HEREAFTER. MY successors should be assured of proper accommodation and comfort. I consider the permanent establishment of the offices and consular residence in the new building the last important achievement of my administration as consul-general." TSETSE MENACE WEAKENS Science has early solved the tsetse fly problem by discovering means of making human beings and animals resistant to the disease, L. Bevan, veterinary research authority, told the Wild Life Protection Society of Southern Rhodesia, at Salisbury. This would mean that 3,500,000 square miles of potentially rich country in tropical and sub-tropical Africa could be developed to raise food for a hungry world, he said. ForrestalTo Resign When Truman Asks BERLIN, Nov. 14 (UP) United States Defense Secretary James V. Forrestal said today he has informed President Trumaa he will resign at a date to be determined by the President Commenting on reports that ht intends to resign shortly, . Forrestal said, '-that is a matter to be determined by the President. "I have informed him I will be unable to remain throughout his entire administration." FORRESTAL, on a flying inspection trip of western European defenses, estimated the airlift over the Berlin blockade is costing upwards of $100,000,000 a yearv Ue'praised Gen. Lucius D. Clay, American commander in Germany, for iis job in directing the airlift and meeting the Berlin crisis. He termed the airlift a good investment for peace. Forrestal held a press conference at the airport before taking off for Frankfurt with Clay. He left Washington last week for Paris and conferred with government leaders there and in London before arriving here. He spent 17 hours in Berlin. HE .SAID he had no plans for meeting Field Marshal Viscount Montgomery, chief of staff of the western European union, but added that he may see the British war leader before returning t the U. S. within a few days. He refused to comment on whether America will provide arms and ammunition for western Europe! armies. Last night Forrestal dined privately with Clay, U. S. ambassador to Russia, Walter Bedell Smith and Clay's political adviser, Robert Murphy. FORRESTAL said Washington now is studying plans to reinforce the airlift's C-54 skymasterg with new type transport planes. However, he said no definite decision had been made. The airlift, he said, is an historical development in the use of air transport. He told Frankfurt newsmen he came to Europe "because I always wanted to see the airlift and wanted a general impression of the situation in Europe."
