December 8, 1935

Quiet morning in the office; in p.m. went out to inspect McDonough’s house in Parañaque –very fine guest rooms but his own quarters are most inconvenient– typical bachelor’s house. Call at Tommy Wolff’s. He agrees with me that the Tydings-McDuffie Act settles the question and independence will certainly come in ten years.

Doria went out to the French Admiral’s party on his flagship.

I went to the military tournament in the Stadium with General and Mrs. Smith –was very much impressed by the performance of anti-aircraft guns. Smith tells me they register 20% hits, because the explosion of shrapnel near a plane dislocates the machinery &c. Quezon was there with his son, but, not feeling well, went home.
