Smith Declared Filipinos Are
Ambitious And Capable People

That the Filipinos are an intensely
ambitious and capable people was the
opinion expressed in an interview,
by Prof. Warren D. Smith of the Uni-
versity of Oregon, who for a number
of years was chief of the Division of
Mines in the' Philippine Islands and
who is now conducting summer cour-
ses in geology at the University of
Professor Smith went to the 'Phil-
ippines in 1905 and was connectedI
with the Division of Mines until 1914,1
when he becam'e head of the depart-
ment of geology at the University of
Oregon. In 1920 and 1921, he obtain-
ed leave of absence and again assum-
ed the duties of chief of the Division
of Mines in the Philippines. In his
work, Professor Smith has served un-
der every governor-general of the is-

lands, except Taft. He became well
acquainted with Major-General Leon-
ard Wood, whom he considers one of
the greatest men of our country.
"One of the big things that is
briniging th* peoples of the Far East
together," stated Professor Smith,
"is the Far Eastern Olympiad between
the Chinese, Japanese, Filipinos and
other peoples of the Far East, held
every other year." Professor Smith
took part in the relay races of the
1914 Olympiad, held at Manila.
"There are few government posi-
tions open for white men in the Phil-
ippines at the present time," Profes-
sor Smith declared. "Some technical
positions are left but these are rap-
idly being taken by natives. Through
its process of Filipinization, the Phil-
ippine government is filling all the
vacancies possible with Filipinos."

Makes Ready For Departure . To
Washington, Where Final
Respects Will Be Paid
(By The Associated Press)
Dayton, Tenn., July 28.-The moun-
tain folk of eastern Tennesssee, spec-
tators of his last great battle, paid
their final tribute today to "Brother
Bryan," peerless champion of their
Christian faith.
Passing in an endless line, hundreds
of men, women and children who
watched with affectionate eyes the last
days of the great commoner, looked
for the last time late today at the
peaceful face of their leader as he lay
in a humble Dayton home, and
glimpsed through the glass top of his
casket at those firm-set lips once elo-
quent, often moved to stir men to ac-
Later, as the shadows lengthened
on the sultry summer day, they stood
again in a patient multitude upon the
lawn to hear a minister speak a fun-
eral paeon, and praise God for the life
and work of William Jennings Bryan.
It was Bryan the clear-voiced her-
ald of religious fundamentalism who
received the last rites here today.
Thursday and Friday in Washington,
his countrymen will pay high honor
to the Democratic chieftain, presiden-
tial candidate, and former Secretary
of State. In Arlington Cemetery, then,
the well loved leader will be laid to
enduring rest among the military,
heroes of the nation.
Tonight the widow-embodiment of
amazing fortitude because of mighty
sorrow-from her rolling chair was
preparing her household for the de-
parture tomorrow toward the 'coun-
try's captial. The special car for the
funeral party arrived in Dayton late
today. At 8:40 A. M. it will leave for!
Chattanooga, then after an interval
in which the public there will view
the body, it will go to Washington byI
way of Knoxville, Bristol, Roanoake,'
and Lynchburg. The journey will be
over the Southern Railway Line and
a scheduled train which should cross
the Potomac shortly before 7:30
o'clock Thursday morning.
Funeral arrangements at Washing-
ton had not been definitely fixed to-
night. Early today Mrs. Bryan had
announced that her husband's fun-
eral services at Washington would
be pronounced in New York Avenue
Presbyterian church. The pastor,
Reverend Wallace Wadcliff, has been
a great friend of the former Secretary
of State and his family.

Prof. Warren D. Smith of the Uni-
versity of Oregon, gave an illustrated
lecture yesterday afternoon on "In
teresting Geological and Georgraph-
ical Features of the Philippine Is-
lands." Professor Smith was the
chief of the Division of Mines in the
Philippines from 1907 to 1914, serving,
under every governor-general except
In answer to the question, "Why
should we be interested in the Phil-
ippines?" Professor Smith said that
it is the most daring social and pol-
itical experiment that has ever been
tried. The solution can only be seen
after a study of the geology and geo-
graphy .of that region. ,
Geologically, there are three stra-
tegic positions of the Pacific, Central
America, Antartic, and the Philip-i
pines, of which the Philippines are
the greatest.
In regard to the climatic conditions
he said that tradewinds came from
the northeast and cyclone winds from
the southwest, and also that the is-
lands were subject to typhoons, start-
ing ow the island of Yap. On account
of the relation of the Philippines to
Asia and Australia, geographically
the Philippines will always be Asiatic
and can never be made American.
People travel by means of buffalo,
two wheeled carts, and autos, and of
autos, there are more in Manila than
all of China or even the rest of the
Far East. They have both primitive
and the most advanced methods, de-
pending on the locality. He showed
a huge wheel used in irrigation, a
primitive dredge used in searching
for gold in the rivers. There are
caves in the Philippines in which one
can go by motorboat from the sea five
miles into the center of the island,
the stalactites in these caves are sev-
eral feet long. The volcanos are
composed of ashes and boulders, in
contrast to the volcanoes of Hawaii,
which are of lava.
He concluded his lecture by saying
that there was one man in the Phil-
ippines that Americans do not un-
derstand, General Wood, but that he
is the ablest .man we can produce.
