Retention of Philippines by U. S.
Be£ for the Filipinos Themselves

pino, we should retain possession of the island.- for the
First. We have secured for them a stable govern-
ment which is better than they ever had before or ever
wdl have again should we sever our connection with
the Philippine islands.
Second. Under American rule of the Philippine
islands the people have been more prosperous than at
any time in their history.
Third. We are just beginning the development of
the Philippine islands, and should we retain possession of them, unques-
tionably the beneficial result of such development would be very great
not only for the Philippines but for the I'nited States.
Fourth. By retaining possession of the Philippine islands we keep
them out of the clutches of some nation that will not be as unselfish as wa
have been iu working out their salvation.
Fifth. The increase in trade of the Philippines with the United
.States has been very great. It will be much greater in proportion in the
next 25 years if our relations continue as they now are.
Sixth. They furnish a base of operation for trade with ( hina anil
Japan, which will be greatly beneficial not only to the I nited States but
to the Philippine islands as well; and, lastly:
The Philippine islands now are a part of a great nation. Were they
given independence, they would become, from a national standpoint, insig-
nificant, with no voice in the affairs of the world, and subject to be
trampled upon whenever they became necessary to the welfare of any other

MoSt Productive Relation of State to
Labor Lies in Public Employment Office
By ROBERT C. VALENTINE
More star ball players have hern In-
jured this year than In any previous
season iu a decade and the fans
throughout the country ure mystified.
They cannot understand why these ac-
cidents to stars should occur so regu-
larly. The answer is that baseball Is
a different game this season. For sev-
eral years the players have been reap-
ing a harvest. The natural advance-
ment of the game and the Increase of
the profits of the magnates caused the
salaries of players to mount rapidly,
and then came the war between or-
ganized ball and the Feds.
The players took advantage of the
conditions and held the magnates up
for salaries all out of proportion to
their value, with the result that the

It is not in urles after the long term, war-time con-
tracts had expired, the players real-
ized that they Mould have to get out
and hustle or they would be cut even
more than they expect. As a result,
they are making plays and taking des-
perate chances which were unknown
in the last two seasons.
There is no question about the hust-
ling of the players this season. They
are working harder than ever, realiz-
ing that their new contracts will be
based entirely upon what they show
this season aud not on past reputation,
as was the case when the Feds were

noticed how much faster the games

leagues has been handicapped by in-
juries to star players, with the Ath-
letics, Yankees and Indians the chief
sufferers. One list places the num-

Standardization of Schools Brings All
Elements of Community Together
By MRS. MARY C. BRADFORD
Sttle Superintendent ol Public lmRuclion ol Colorado
Standardization ties together every educational activity
element in the community. It has done more to build up a
spirit than anything I ever saw.
The beauty of it is that it can be done iu any state where the super-
intendent has constitutional authority to act without legislative enactment.
For instance the Colorado constitution gives me "general supervision and
control" of public instruction. I am answerable for my deeds, not to any
official but to the people of Colorado.
Colorado has now 250 standard schools. We have a definite standard
for the size, condition, equipment and beauty of the school buildings,
condition and supervision of playgrounds, number of teachers, their sal-
aries and efficiency, attendance and punctuality of pupils, courses of
study, and work accomplished.
Iu this way we grade not only the pupils and teachers but the par-
ents, school directors, taxpayers and voters as well. We feel that they
are all inseparably bound together.
We have an official score card on which we grade the schools iu every
No schools can be rated as standardized if they do not provide instruc-
tion for adults who need it. This is our glory—one of the biggest things
we liave ever done.

ball players, a Los Angeles corre- I

"Polly McLarry has a hobby. He is i

Conditions in Mexico Can Be Bettered
Only by the Aid of Civilized Powers
Bj HENRY LANE WILSON
Former Amb.uadoc (tom United Sutej to Melico
It must always be borne in mind that Mexico is not a civilized nation.
Eighty per cent of the population of Mexico are without an abiding place
except by sufferance— with no more than a nominal part of interest in
the politics and affairs of the country. They are unable to read or write,
and. while preserving the vices and traditions of their ancestors, they have
been made infinitely worse bv the vices of the white man, the sense of
injustice and the realization that they are pariahs and outcasts.
Conditions cau be bettered only by a strong and vigorous national
government moving on definite lines of policy aud with the sympathy,
advice and assistance of civilized powem.
