I The Philippines received Ihelr Independence on July 4, l'J4B. only IS monlht »jo, and were a major sufferer from the Japanese nccupa- j- Roxas said the ravages of war were so Kveat that he orlgumlly f thought it would be impossible to balance the budget before 1950. But, he said today In an Interview* —. Japan's Flood Victims Harvest Rice tor Themselves . now seemed that it would be pos- llble to strike a balance in MX. Ind he was determined that it Vould be struck. During the-comlng I'ear, he said, he was also deter- nlned to push his program to ex- bropviate big estates ami land hold- In the Manila area and redistribute them to the people at what Jhey cost the state. He said a lot of people have to teallie that the Interests of Ihe r.ommon people are paramount.and h« republic cannot. rest upon a [firm foundation unless ihey are riven their own homes at reasonable prlce.1. Finance* Get Attention Roxas received this correspondent |in his office at Malacanan Palare. was dressed in a sports jhlrt and light trousers and appeared to In excellent he'alth, although he works 10 or 12 hours a day, usually ,even days a week. His financial program, lie etn- Iphtsized, included drastic ?oveVn- Imental economy and vigorous ef- |forts to expand trade and build up Uonal production. In this con- Injpion, he was asked to whst ex- Item, the so-called "parity" amend- Irr.ent adopted in a plebiscite last • Spring had increased American in- Ivestmenls. Roxax replied that so far the :e[suits had been disappointing. He ex- Iplalned that the world situation be- Igan to worsen soon after the amenii- Iment was adopted and American ju- Jvestoi-s naturally withdrew to tile I sidelines to await a restoration of I world stability before risking their I money. However, he said, as soon as I world conditions improved, he haJ I every reason to believe that Anier- 1 lean capital would [low into the | Philippines in large amounts. He said there had been no phange I in his position that a peace treaty should be imposed upon Japan I that would prevent that nation from | ever menacing world peace again, completely supported Gen. Douglas MacArthur's program for developing Japan into a peaceful I nation. Supports MacArthur He said he completely supported i MacArthnr's view that Christian ; common sens* must guide the pol- ! icles of the victorious allies towards ' the Japanese. He. said common sense ; also demanded that the Japanese ! be allowed sufficient industry for . them to earn a. living and buy their essential requirements abroad. As for China, he said the Philippines government was doing everything 1t could to develop friendly relations with Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek's government. He noted that India, Indonesia, Burma and f tnch Indo-China were passing ough troubled times, and said a: 1 improvement, could be. hoped for In 1948 He was confident his Liberal Party would win an overwhelming majority on November II, when Filipinos elect eight new senators and ail provincial and municipal officers. He implied that the ber,t the opposition could hope for was to win minor contests in the province: and towns.
