Born August 18. 1878, of mixed Filipino and Spanish parentage, Quezon was a law student when the United States drove the Spaniards out of the islands in 1898. He joined the rebel forces of F.milio Aguinaldo and became chief of staff In the fight against the United States until the movement collapsed. Quezon was held in a military prison for six months. After going back to his law studies. Quezon climbed rapidly In politics becoming one of two resident commissioners for the Islands in Washington in 1909. and president of the first Insular senate in 1916, the highest elective office a Filipino might attain under the American regime. He held the office until 1928. He was given credit for the preamble of the Jones act of 1916. which abolished the Philippine commission, and stated it was the purpose of the people of the United States “to withdraw their sovereignty xxx and to recognize their independence as soon as a stable government" could be established. 362 Cypres* Phone 4100 R W STUARD Phone 3531 5 ROOM frame and furniture close in on North side 6 ROOM duplex near McMurry.

The major impetus of the American oa'Upfront was southward around Percy and Tcssy-Sur-Vire, IO to 25 mdes north'ast of Avranches, however, the German resistance has hardened. The Germans were fighting there in an effort to relieve the continuing pressure on their western flank. In the Percy area particularly the Germans launched a savage counterattack, hut the Americans contained it. \s the consolidation behind the spcarherds continued tanks infantrymen found numerous groups of 15 to 20 Germans hiding in barn4 and abandoned dwellings. Few chose to fight it out, most preferring to surrender. Many- complained that their officers had deserted them. Miles C. Dempsey went into high British troops under Lt.
