The road involved crossed an !t(1- acre tract owned by .Dr. Simpson. It had been used by the public for 35 years. In 1029 a gate was erected across the road where it entered the pr/jperty and another where it left. The gates "were opened and closed by those who made use thereof."

No one then could have imagined the tragic period which lay ahead for the commonwealth and its protcclor nation. Or, if lhal period could have boon foreseen, few would have believed lhal lhe promise of independence could be realized now. Bul lhal promise survived through the black days of defeat v A"i the early monlhs of 1942. Those black days served to bind the United Slates and the Philippines more closely. Bataan nnd Corregidor became enshrined in lhe hearts of Pillpinos and Americans alike through the exemplary heroism of the men of bolh nations who defended them. Nor did lhe Filipinos' courage fail with the departure of the Americans and the subsequent occupation. Neither the Japs' cajolery nor their brutality could break it 47TH YEAR: VOL. 47—NO. 223 Move Underway to Annex Two Areas to City Star WEATHER FORECAST t0night Star of HODO.

The Philippines' independence clay dawns upon many parts of the world where freedom and independence ;irc still in doubl. On their own side of the globe the Filipinos see civil strife in a free neighbor nation and serious unrest among lhe colonial peoples of lhe Easl Elsewhere in lhe world lhe pressure of lhe slrong upon lhe weak is not abated. All of which must 't-i. Tnakc 'heir complete freedom even ^morc precious. For America this day of Philippine independence is almost as proud an cvcnl as il is for the islanders themselves. It marks lhe complete success of our one great colonial venture and the complele vindication of the policies employed. During more than SO years Iho Filipinos have advanced, under our guidance, from a woefully low estate to a level of literacy and livinf, standards unmatched in the Orient 'fexcept in Japan. And the end of thai half century finds the mutual friendship and admiration of America and lhe Philippines stronger, lhan ever before. Today \yc are accused by some of being imperialists and harboring colonial ambitions. Againsi those untrue charges stands the independent Philippine Republic to refute in fact what ha* been charged in apparently maJVcious fancy. The early days of the new republic will certainly be difficult. ,jThe loss in lives and property dur- '•wng lhe Japanese war was 'grievously severe. Bul recovery is slowly going forward. And lhe courage wilh which lhe islands' cil- * izens withstood the Japanese ag- i. gressor, wilh lhe help lhal lhe United Stales slancls ready lo give may be counled on to see thsm . through lhc trying times ahead. And so America says to ils friends in the far Pacific: Long live lhe Philippine Republic! Naiiona! independence has never been given or received more proudly.
