He has at last been induced to speak his mind
on the question of the soldiers' bonus; his atti-
tude here is precisely that of President Hoover.
He has opened his heart on the question of
public utilities; his decision here is wise, and
.ane. .ehas proposed a rogran of reforest.-
tion, which, as he says, would be a boost to
employment; this is conceivable, for out of the
millions and millions of unemployed in this na-
tion it should be possible to find enough men to
form a "bucket brigade," which would pass axes,
seedlings, saws, young saplings, decayed branches,
etc., from hang to hand until the materials
reached the desired location. Otherwise, it is
difficult to conceive of a reforestation program{

To The Editor:
As soon itsthe Doak Resoluti, which affects
foreign students who earn their education either
in part or in whole, was put into effect, the status,
of the Filipino students in this c1untry has bee
questioned. To anyone who attempts to definel
the status of the Filipinos in this country the
following question usually come to mind: Are
the Filipinos American citizens? The answer i
no, because they (the Filipinos) do not enjoy
political rights such as the rignt to vote and
to hold office.
After the Treaty of Paris (198), the United
States Senate passed the following resolution:
"Resolved by the Senate and House of the
United States of America in Congress Assembled.
that by the ratification of the Treaty of peace
with Spain, it is not intended to incorporate the
inhabitants of the Philippine Islands into citi-
zenship of the United States. "
R. Regala of the University of the Philippines.
quoting an opinion of the Attorney General of
the Philippine Islands dated Sept. 4, 1906, finds:
"The inhabitants of these islands are not citi-
zens of the United States in respect to rights,
privileges and immunities guaranteed by the con-
stitution to the citizens of the several states of
the American union, but it is equally clear that
they are citizens of the United States in an
international sense, and as such are entitled a
right to the protection of the United States in
their rights of property and person whether at
home or in foreign lands."
Although the Filipinos are not American citi-
zens in a constitutional point of view, yet they
are not "aliens" because they owe allegiance to
the government of the United States-they are
"subjects" of the same according to the Attor-
ney-General of the United States in arguing in
the famous Insular cases. According to Justice
Malcom of the Philippine supreme court, the
Filipinos are American nationals and Filipino
citizens-"American nationals because they are
not aliens to the United States, although they
are not full citizens of the same." But from the
international point of view, the Filipinos are
citizens of the United States. In fact, when they
(the Filipinos) travel in foreign lands, they prac-
tically lose their identity as Filipino citizens be-
cause they travel on American passports.
Therefore, the Filipino students in this coun-
try are not at all affected by the Doak resolu-
tion because they are "subjects" of the United
S. I. Cabanatan, Grad.

(Associated Press Staff Writer)
WASHINGTON-Alice Roosevelt Longworth,
speaking as one with experience, has said her say,
among other things, about the vice-presidency.
And by her testimony anent the "shelving" of
her distinguished father in what sometimes has
proved to be a political graveyard, the office will
hardly gain in general esteem. Even the daugh-
ter of a vice-president, it seems, found the office
a side track in Washington political life, how-
ever it may have served to introduce her to the
official social life of the nation's capital.
Mrs. Longworth, in those far off days, was
not the politically minded person of today, it is
to be assumed.
The files are full of her doings around the. time
when her father succeeded to the presidency-
to the'consternation of the strategists of his party
who had engineered the shelving process. But as

"Princess Alice," the future wife of a speaker of
the house was evidently enjoying her youth, not
bothering herself about politics. That all came
still, there is even better evidence as to the
Roosevelt family view of the vice-presidency than
Mrs. Longworth's memories. Theodore Roosevelt
himiself spoke out on the subject after having
been vice-president and President and in the
midst of his 1912 campaign for another Republi-
can presidential nomination which still influences
the course of American political history.
In a primary campaign address in Chicago ^in
March, 1912, Mr. Roosevelt said:
"Occasionally my gloomy foes -have said that
I wanted to be king. I want to answer that they
did not know kings as I did.
"I like the kings I have met; but I don't want
to be one because the functions of these kings
expressed in the terms of democracy would be
the position of vice-president for life with leader-
ship of the '400' thrown in."
