Senate President Manual L. Quezon.
Slates. Mr. Quezon and the Hon. Ser-
rIo Osmena, Speaker of the Philippine
House of Representative* and Vice
President of the Council of State, are
the leaders of the Nacionallsta party,
which has been In power since 1907.
While Speaker Osmena is not so well
known In the United States as Quezon,
he is considered one of the ablest men
In the islands. Senate President Que-
zon recently referred to Osmena as
“the greatest Filipino since Rlzal.”
The personal relations betwe'-n Os-
tnenn and Quezon are probably without
a parallel in modern politics. They
have been the leading political figures
In the Islands for 12 years, yet there
has never been the slightest indication
of rivalry between them. Throughout
their college life aa well as their long
political service each has refused to b*
a candidate for any position that the
other aspired to.
During the years Quezon was the
Philippine delegate la the American
Congress he won the esteem and con-
fidence of both the Republican and
Democratic sides of the chamber.
Whenever he spoke he was assured of
a good attendance. One of the official
short hand reporters once declared
Quezon used thejmrost English of any
member of the House.
Osmena, as president of the Naclon-
nllsta party, Is the lender of the nu-
tIona! movement for Independence.
"Osmena Is the premier *de facto’ of
(lie I'liiitppioes," said a leading Filipl-
Body Headed by Senate Presi-
dent Quezon Reiterates De-
mand for Independence.
That the Filipino people are In earn-
est In iliolr demand for Immediate In-
dependence is Indicated by the coming
to ilie United States of n second Philip-
pine mission to work for Independence.
Coincident with tills announcement the
War Department received a cable from
Manila stHting that the all-Filipino leg-
islature had adopted resolutions re-
llerating Us plea for Immediate Inde-
The second mission, like the first, is
composed of the lending men of the Is-
lands and will work In the United
Stales not only for Immediate Inde-
pendence, but also to bring about “bet-
ter understanding, greater confidence
nml closer economic relations between 1
the United States and the Philippines." !
The mission Is again headed by Man-
uel I,. Quezon, president of the Philip-
pine Senate, who Is well known In
America, having been for six years res-
ident commissioner to the United
Speaker Sergio Osmena.
no journalist, now in America. “A
very conscientious and tireless worker,
thorough and persistent, a genius for
grasping the big features as well as
the smallest details of public affairs,
cool headed, quiet by temperament and
education, a deep thrlnker, nn eloquent]
speaker, a polished writer, a keen ob-,
server of men—sucb is Osmena.” <
Both Osmena and Quezon have been
consistent advocates of Philippine In-
dependence, yst when the occasion de-
manded it they have never hesitated to ^
champion the cause of America’s good ;
Intentions toward the Filloino neonle.
, COP1NNE GRIFFITH
It was particularly appropriate that
Albert E. Smith, president of Vita-
graph, should have selected Corlnne
Griffith for the leading role of Clyde
Fitch’s “The Climbers,” for she has
been steadily climbing ever since site
left her home In the south to become
a film player. Now she has reached
the top rung of film success. In addi-
tion to her Imposing personal appear-
ance and histrionic lalent, Miss Griffith
has the happy faculty of wearing beau-
tiful and uausuul gowns with grace
and has had a splendid athletic train-
ing. Some of her most recent fea-
tures have been “A Girl at Bay," “The
Tower of Jewels,” "Human Collateral”
and “Deadline at Eleven.”
