Galo W. Blanco, grad., completes
his article on the government of Porto
Rico in this article.
The central government of Porto
Rico has control over the budget ac-
counts of the municipal government.
The 71 municipalities in the island are
each governed by a mayor and a mun-
icipal council of from five to nine
members elected by popular vote.
The right to vote is granted (1), to
those who could vote before 1906 and
(2), to natives who are 21 years of
age and who can read and write.
There are several political parties
in P'orto Rico. The Republican party
and the Union party are the most
powerful ones. The final aim of the
Republican party is to make Porto
Rico a state of the Union while the
advocates of the Union party are
struggling bitterly for the independ-
ence of the island and the right to
govern themselves.
Choose Own Representative
The people of Porto Rico choose a
native to represent the island in the
house of representatives of the United
States. He is known as the Resident
commissioner and has power to debate
but not to vote. As a rule the Resi-
dent commissioner is chosen from
among the leading political men of
Porto Rico.
The natives of Porto Rico are not
citizens of the United States. When
travelling outside of American terri-
tory they have the protection of the
United States government and are
considered as American citizens. So
far congress has not passed an act
granting the Porto Ricans American
citizenship. I believe that in the
course of one or two years congress
will make the people of Porto Rico cit-
izens of this Republic. Such a step
will undoubtedly be welcome by the
majority if not all the Porto Ricans
and it will mark a new era in the
history of the "Pearl of the Antilles,"
as Porto Rico is often called.
To my understanding the policy of
the United States government has.
been to allow the Porto Ricans to
gradually govern themselves. Three
years ago there were six Americans
and five Porto Ricans in the execu-
tive council. This menat an "Amer-
ican" majority in the upper house and
bills passed in the lower house were
very often defeated in the upper house.
At present, however, there are seven
Porto Ricans and four Americans in
the upper house. This gives the Porto
Ricans a better chance to make their
own laws, and it would be more satis-
factory still if the governor did not
have the veto power.
Government Unsatisfactory
Even with this state of affairs the
people are not satisfied with the pres-
ent form of government. A cause
for just complaint lies in the fact that
the better offices and positions are
given to newly arrived Americans
whether they are fitted or not to do the1
work satisfactorily. I wish to em-
phasize that there are in Porto Rico
very many political men who are highly
educated, and who have a broad and
clear conception of politics and prin-
ciples of government.
Why shouldn't these men fill the
places which are now taken care of
by Americans? For they are surely
fitted to "do the job" as satisfactorily;
as any American statesman who Unclei
Sam chooses to send us. Why isn't
the governorship of Porto Rico en-
trusted to a Porto Rican?

Why isn't a Porto Rican appointed
commissioner of education? Is it be-
cause there are not Porto Ricans com-
petent enough to fill these positions?
We certainly have a good choice of
men for each office. If such is the
case why aren't we allowed to govern
ourselves? The people of Porto Rico
could never be happy and contented
to see our statesmen stand by the side
and have Americans come and govern-
us when we feel positively sure that
we can do the work ourselves under
the direction of the United States con-
Does Not Advocate Independence
I am not an advocate of the inde-
pendence of Porto Rico. Certainly, I
am against it. The majority of the
people still retain that individualistic
character typical of the Spanish peo-
ple. They lack team work and when
this factor is absent co-operation is
impossible and as a result there would
be disagreement among themselves
and a new leader would rise every day
throwing the country into what would
be perhaps an eternal revolution. Per-
sonally, I would like to see Porto Rico
become a state of the Union.
If we are to be still governed by Am-
ericans we ask for well trained men
and above all for men who know and
understand the peculiarities of the
race and who can mix with the peple
of Porto Rico and work for their wel-
fare and prosperity.
John C. Fischer, chairman of the
welcome-home committee for the lo-
cal guardsmen returning from muster-
ing out at Fort Wayne, and Mayor E.
M. Wurster of this city have issued an
appeal to university students to turn
out at 1:30 o'clock this afternoon at
the armory to assist in receiving the
troops. There are several university
students in the local company.
The University and the city bands
will lead the procession from the
armory. Many Ann Arbor merchants
have signified their intentions of clos-
ing their places of business for a short
time in the afternoon to allow their
employes to help in the welcoming
The old University siren and the
curfew will be blown when the Ann
Arbor troops leave Detroit, and
it is hoped that a large number of
students will be on hand when the
train rolls in this afternoon at the
Michigan Central station.
The company will be given a ban-
quet at the armory next Wednesday
evening. More than 700 tickets have
been sold.
Farm Produce Breaks Records in 1916
Washington, Jan. 19.-Farm produce
during the year 1916 broke all records
with a total value of $13,499,000,000,
the department of agriculture an-
nounced today. This amount is great-
er by $2,674,000,000 than that in 1915,
which was the former record. The
gross value of farm production given
includes the total crop and animal

(United Press Staff Correspondent.)
With the French Armies, Jan. 18.-
(Special) -Lieutenant Guynemer, "star
ace" of the entire French aerial serv-
ice, who recently brought down his
twenty-first "officially confirmed" Ger-
man airplane, established at the same
time a new world's record for aerial
combats, the air duel having taken
place at an altitude of over two miles,
after a chase of over 70 kilometers.
The entire battle was one of the most
dramatic air episodes that the entire
war has produced.
The French's undisputed mastery of
the air, which now renders it prac-
tically impossible for a German ma-
chine ever to cross the French lines,
has imposed on the French flyers the
necessity of flying far back of the
German lines to get in contact with
the German machines. It was while
on one of these hunts that Guynemer,
flying at an altitude of over 13,000
feet and at a distance of over 70 kilo-
meters behind the German lines,
sighted a German squadron of two
observation airplanes with an escort
of two fighting machines, heading for
the French lines.
Follo vs Behind Clouds.
There was nothing to prevent Guy-
nenfer giving immediate battle except
that should he be forced to land he
would fall in the German lines. He
therefore took refuge behind some
friendly clouds until the German
squadron should pass ahead of him,
then started the pursuitsfrom behind,
closing up sufficiently so that if he
should be seen by the German anti-
air craft gunners below, he would be
taken merely for one of the German
For70 kilometers he kept up the
pursuit, concealing himself as much
as possible from the German machines
by keeping behind the clouds. When
the French lines at last appeared be-
low him, he emerged in full view and
began to fight. The German machine
nearest him chanced to be an observa-
tion plane and darting down on it he
opened his machine gun fire at an al-
titude of two miles. He killed the
observer with his third bullet and with
the tenth the pilot shot from the ma-
chine dead and the plane began its
whirling course down toward the
French lines.
Searches for Other Planes.
Although the machine was the sec-
ond one Guynemer had brought down
that day, he at once started after the
other three, but they in the meantime
had disappeared toward their own
lines. Guynemer, therefore, without
further ado started in search of his
victim and succeeded in locating the
machine in the ravine of Mocourt, the
plane itself shattered into fragments
and the bodies of both the pilot and

observer lying within a radius of 60
The fight was witnessed by members
of the American squadron who are
now stationed where they have the
advantage of witnessing some of the
exploits of most of the crack "aces"
of the French aerial service.

116 E. Liberty Street
Dr. Grayson Now Has Bank of Bear
Admiral; Was President's
Constant Companion
Washington, Jan. 19.-Dr. Gary R.
Grayson, private physician of Presi-
dent Wilson, was honored today for
four years of successfully keeping the
president in condition by a promotion
to medical director of the navy with
the rank of rear admiral. The new
position is one of two created by con-
gress at its last session.
Dr. Grayson now holds the rank of
past assistant surgeon. Grayson was
assigned to the White House during
the Taft administration. He has been
in constant attendance on President
Wilson and members of his family for
four years in addition to performing
his work in connection with the naval
hospital here.
After the death of the president's
first wife, Dr. Grayson became the al-
most constant companion of President
Wilson. During the courtship of the
president and Mrs. Galt, Dr. Grayson
was jocularly referred to as "the Cu-
pid" of the romance. Later Grayson
married Mrs. Galt's ward, Miss Alice
Gertrude Gordon.
Turks Repudiate Entente Statements
Amsterdam, Jan. 19.-Turkish state-
ments repudiate all statements of
the entente in their reply to President
Wilson. The note is almost identical
with that the Germans sent the neu-
trals, according to advices here today.
