PATTERN OF NORMALCY
As elections go, it seemed like a good rep­
resentative vote, with all the killings and
wild agitation which accompanied it. Pres­
ident Quirino, of the Philippine Islands, won
his re-election with a handsome vote, after
overcoming an early lead built up by Jose
Laurel, his closest opponent.
Actually, to anyone who had the oppor­
tunity to "feel the pulse” of the Philippine
nation at the time of its liberation from
Japanese occupation, the political contest
was surprising evidence of healing wounds,
if nothing else.
One of the impressive notions that came
from observing the actions of the Filipinos
at the arrival of American warships and
fighting men to free them from an oppres­
sor’s rule was the serious regard they dem­
onstrated at the return of liberty.
Scarcely had the first naval vessel start­
ed its bombardment to the accompaniment
of aerial attack when individual Filipinos

, Amer-
t.
ican fighting men. Entire families, from the
smallest infant to the most doddering grand­
father or grandmother, loaded themselves
into a variety of boats and rode out in the
thick of battle to show their gratitude.
The sight, at Leyte, of these people scull­
ing into the bay, unmindful of the fight be­
tween ships and planes with bomb and bul­
lets and blazing casualties on the water and
dropping from the skies was not soon for­
gotten. In their eagerness and their unre­
strained joy, they showed magnificent dis­
regard of the dangers that surrounded them.
Nor did later contact with the people,
after their liberation, discount the impres­
sion that here the ideals of liberty and hu­
man dignity were definitely enshrined. There
were statues of their revered fighters for
freedom and in the very sjveech of the people
were tones that spoke a love for lilx»rty.
Take, for instance, a retired civilian work­
er of the U. S. Navy; pre-war, in CaYite
City.
He told of his wartime experience under
Japanese occupation, a story of sordid bru­
tality. But there was pride and significance
in his statement "No Papaneae ever entered
this house” — a sentiment which was echoed
in kind by a teen-age daughter and a teen­
age war veteran son.
And one evening in the narrow quarters
of a laborer, with his wife and family of
three young sons and small daughter,
strengthened the l>elief that after liberation
the country would throw out collaborators
without mercy, once life regained some
degree of normalcy.
Constant reminder of the occupation could
be seen in more than the memory of the
people. Acres of rubble where once stood
proud buildings and installations should have
been regarded as a continuous jog against
complacency and laissez faire.
And yet, little more than four years after
the ending of a personal nightmare to the
proud people of the Philippines, the amazing
fact is shown that Laurel, who had l>een
installed as a Japanese puppet during occu­
pation, found enough support in a national
election to seriously challenge President
Quirino. The bitterness so many individuals
in the Islands expressed toward any and
everything concerned with the occupation
makes the vote total of the Japanese puppet
seem strangely inconsistent.
Does it mean the Philippine jieople had
forgotten so soon, that a large segment of
them would endorse the symbol of their
national disgrace? Are the fires of bitter­
ness died down, in four years, and the past
put out of mind?
It might be that old wounds have healed
and the sins of occupation recognized as an
exigency o f the past, not an indication of
the present and the future. If so, we might
well regard the Philippine election as part
o f the worldwide pattern of normalcy.

< ;i\ F TH E KIDS V B R E A K !
Under the leadership of Kiwanis In­
ternational, attention is being focused this
week on the plight of underprivileged and
needy children. November 19th has l>een set
as the official National Kids Day Founda­
tion dance, for the raising of funds to carry
on Kiwanis youth pmieets within tbe club’s
area of influence.
In the Tualatin valley, it develops that
there an* many youngsters who are under­
privileged—even aln»ve the economic level
usually associated with the term. They are
underprivileged in the sense that they are
lacking recreational facilities and outlets
which some communities provide for their
young.
There are others than Kiwanians, of
course, who recognize the recreational needs
of a growing generation. In the Multnomah
area, for example, there recently was prose­
cuted an intense, though unsuccessful, cam­
paign for the setting up of a recreation dis­
trict. And even though the general public
fell down in its supjx»rt of the meritorious
idea, many were actively l»ehind it.
In Tigard and Beaverton, at the present
time, there are attempts to meet the lack
of recreation for youngsters. But the going
is slow and harassments are many.
Tigard aims for a youth recreation center,
where teen-agers particularly might meet
for various activities.
