Diosdado P. Macapagal – 5th President of the 3rd Republic of the Philippines (2 of 2)

Good morning everyone.  This is just the part 2 of my particle …

His suggested law as congressman was all about the welfare of the ordinary people.  One of these was the exportation of rice and corn.  Because of this, he was called the “Champion on the Mass.”

In 1958 he won as Vice President of the Philippines and on November 14, 1961 he won as President against former President Carlos P. Garcia.

As a President he gave emphasis on the problem in lack of employment and in the increase of production to help in the needs of many Pilipino.  Simple living in all of the government and the faithfulness in the duty was included in his bylaw.

He facilitated to reform the land to help the poor farmers.  He was given a hand by the experts in the law that will change the life of the small farmers.

Macapagal was the one sent Harry Stonehill and his accompanying person to go back to America.  Stonehill is an American millionaire who established many businesses in the Philippines.  He bribed some top officials in the government so he can do what ever he wants to have his business  always be successful in the country.  This became a big scandal that reached to the knowledge of Macapagal.  He did all the steps to end this scandal.

Macapagal also became the instrument to increase the relation of the Philippines in many countries.  He was also initiated to own Sabah from Malaysia.

Many of his detractor in the politics put Macapagal down. Different terrible issues were brought by the detractors which made in his clean name and services unpleasant.  It was not surprising anymore that he got lost when he ran again for President in November 1965.  Nevertheless, he was a gentleman to accept his failure.

When Former President Carlos P. Garcia, Macapagal replace him as the President of the Second Constitutional Convention.

President Diosdado Macapagal had two wives.  The first one was Purita dela Rosa who died early.  He had two children with Purita named Maria Cielo and Arturo.  The second one was Dr. Evangeline Macaraeg who had also given him two children named Maria Gloria and Diosdado Jr.

This was Macapagal aspiration in life:  “DO THE BEST THING YOU CAN DO AND GOD WILL DO ALL THE REST.”

Macapagal died last April 1997.

Henry Adams (1 of 4)

HAAn American historian, novelist, and man of letters, Henry Adams is the author of one of the outstanding autobiographies in Western literature and a towering figure in 19th-century American intellectual history.  Belonging to a patrician family of statesmen and scholars, he felt out of place amid the modern egalitarian and technological forces that were transforming Western society at the end of the 19th century.

Henry Brooks Adams, born in Boston on February 16, 1838, was the product of that city’s Brahmin class, a cultured elite that traced its lineage to Puritan New England.  He was the great-grandson of John Adams and the grandson of John Quincy Adams.  The Adams family tradition of leadership was carried on by his father, Charles Francis Adams (1807-86), a diplomat, historian, and congressman. 

His younger brother, Brooks (1848-1927), was also a historian; his older brother, Charles Francis, Jr. (1835-1915), was an author and railroad executive.  Through his mother, Abigail Brown Brook, Adams was related to one of the most distinguished and wealthiest families in Boston.  Tradition ingrained a deep sense of morality in Adams.  He never escaped his heritage and often spoke of himself as a child of the 17th and 18th centuries who was forced to come to terms with the new world of the 20th century.

Adams was graduated from Harvard in 1858 and in typical patrician fashion, embarked upon a grand tour of Europe in search of amusement and vocation.  Anticipating a career as an attorney, he spent the winter of 1859 attending lectures in civil law at the University of Berlin.  With the outbreak of the U.S. Civil War in 1861, Pres. Abraham Lincoln appointed Adam’s father minister to England.  Henry, age 23, accompanied him to London, acting as his private secretary until 1868.

Returning to the United States, Adams travelled to Washington, D.C., as a newspaper correspondent for The Nation and other leading journals.  He plunged into the capital’s social and political life, anxious to begin the reconstruction of a nation shattered by war.  He called for civil service reform and retention of the gold standard.  Adams wrote numerous essays exposing political corruption and warning against the growing power of economic monopolies, particularly railroads.  – (C.McH.)
