A street in an improved bukidnon village
a The most extraordinary results thus far achieved have been among the Bukidnons, where Lieutenant Governor Lewis has succeeded in converting rambling, ill-kept, foul-smelling rancherias into the most sanitary towns in the Philippinesa (see text, page 1251). a Nearly all the Bukidnon villages have well-attended schools and are connected with telephone lines, which are freely used. The people are converting their beautiful and naturally rich country into a checkerboard, with roads and trails for dividing lines. They are giving up their picturesque native costume so rapidly that typical garments are even now hard to obtaina (see text, page 1193).
