DR. SMITH DISCUSSES
“Economic independence must pre
cede political independence,” said Dr.
W. D. Smith, of the Geology Depart
ment, in discussing the Philippine
question. “I do not believe,” he went
on to say, “that the recent uprising
there is of any very serious impor
tance. While I am not entirely in ac
cord with the Democratic program in
the Philippines, I believe that Mr. Wil
son in the end will solve the Philippine
question, if he handles it himself.”
Dr. Smith, who has spent over nine
years in the Philippine Islands, is to
give an illustrated travelogue at the
Y. M. C. A. Friday evening, January
8, at 8:30 o’clock, on the subject, “The
Philippine Islands, the Farthest In
sular Possession of the United States.”
In speaking of this lecture, Dr. Smith
says, “I shall not attempt to go into
the political side of the question very
deeply, but shall rather present the
economic and educational conditions,
and only brief allusions will be made
to the political situation. What I shall
attempt to do will be to show a side
of Philippine life which most Ameri
cans in this country know nothing
