The document contains a series of reports dealing with various aspects of modernization in the Philippines. Filipino adolescents express modern ideas in the domain of education and achievement but strive to maintain Filipino family values. Urban college students show conflicts remarkably similar to those of American students, suggesting that situational factors are of more importance than culturally determined childhood antecedents. Achievement motivation and performance in both children and adults in Manila suggested that training and attitudes were favorable to modern industrial enterprises. On the other hand, some traditional modes of thinking are rooted in the language structure. Traditional belief systems are operative also with respect to the use of public property of private property not currently used by the owner. Transitory ownership appears to account for police corruption where the officer is seen as having the right to extract payments from sidewalk vendors, taxis, and busses.
