Philippine, Independence The present Congress -turns lu he preparing to put through sonu- kind of bill definitely promising induiJoiuloiK-i! for the Filipinos and setting a imivo or less? definite date for tin; elinnyi: lo so into effect. This is, of course, nothing loss, than plain justice, since llic government years .ago went un record uuuiuivorally with a' pledge that tiiu islanders would eventually'' (jet llieir freedom. The nation's honor will look just a little 'nit clearer when an independence bill is finally passed. The Senate is soon to vote on a hill which would make the Filipinos L'lce in from 17 to 19 years; a bill wliicli will come up for a vote in the House would cut, the time to about eij;ht years. Oll'liand, it would'seem that Ihe House bill is the better. Why postpone the process so long? If we are going to give our island wards their freedom, might it not he just as well for us to do it as fast as wtf comfortable can?

But Kiiami deserves the grateful 'memory of a distraught world. As fai- ns lay ivithin lii s power, he worked (u heal the wounds left by the war. He strove constantly for a better understanding between France and,Germany. When Strescmann of Germany risked his political life to v.-ork for ;m enduring ricace, Briand njul him more than . half way—and similarly risked his own . political life. , It may be Umt ,n Im'jfcr man, in : Briand's position, could have done more. * That is for future historians to mull over.

'I hei'e are, of course, such signs as Wiwiniiit' llofrers, cliirping robin-, anil so on. But there is ,1101, anywhere, anything tiuite as certain and lioiw- f"l as the- gathering [|CK;I| of MUVS stories from the spring training camps in the south and west.. Whether wu ever «v a big league game or nut,, we at least ;;et the Tories from Die trainiiii,' camp-;; and when we see them we know that winter is about over. And the active, old- time fan, to whom autumn and winter are dull months at licst—lie eoims out of his shell and prepares to start living again. They're pla.ving baseball! Spring is just about here!
