Manuel L. Quezon, 19 Agosto 1878 – 1 Agosto 1944

Pagkatapos ng isang taong pag-aaral, ang Surian ng Wikang Pambansa na itinatag noong 1936 ay nagrekomenda na ang wikang Tagalog ang gawing basehan ng pambansang wika. Ang mungkahing ito ay mahusay na tinanggap sa kabila ng pagiging katutubong Bisaya ng unang direktor nitong si Jaime C. de Veyra. Noong Disyembre 1938, si Quezon ay naglabas ng proklamasyon na nagpapatibay sa konsitusyong ginawa ng Surian at naghahayag na mangyayari ang pag-tanggap ng pambansang wika sa loob ng dalawang taon mula rito.

On the proposal to revive the Anti-Subversion Law

It must be recalled that the Anti-Subversion Law has long been discredited as an unjust and anti-democratic law by which anyone can be subjected to punishment on the basis of guilt by association, without the need to present evidence for the personal culpability of the accused for any crime. Such law has long been condemned as a poison to the freedom of thought, expression and assembly.
