and used the GI Bill to fund his acting studies at the Actor's Lab in Hollywood. At acting school he met actress Kay Levey and they married on July 23, 1949. The person tasked to found the institution was Dr. David Sutherland Hibbard, a man from Lyndon, Kansas who, after serving as a pastor in a Presbyterian church in that locality, offered his services to the Presbyterian Board as missionary. Upon his arrival in the Philippines, he was commissioned, together with his wife Laura, to scout the southern part of the Islands to determine the best location for the school. His original points of destination were Cebu, Zamboanga (Zamboanga City) and Iloilo.

style called

in the Battle off Samar. The second style, called ''Satti'', is native to the Moro peoples of the southern Philippines (Mindanao, the Sulu Archipelago, southern Palawan and Tawi-Tawi), and is a true satay dish, similar to traditional Malay and Indonesian ''sate'' recipes. The similarities include the preparation and cooking methods of the meat, an exception being that ''satti'' is served with a thick peanut infused soup as opposed to being served dry. The basic marinade for Satti includes the use of peanuts, garlic, ginger, onions, cumin, bagoong belacan, chillies and coconut milk. Due to these areas being predominantly Muslim (Islam), the meats prepared for ''Satti'' are slaughtered according to Halal laws. Meats such as beef, chicken (''manuk''), goat (''kambing'') and lamb (lamb and mutton) (''anak biri'') feature in Tausug Satti. Well renowned by Tausug (Tausūg people), Samal (Samal people) and Bajau locals in the main southern Philippine cities of Zamboanga (Zamboanga City) and Davao, ''Satti'' has not expanded into Christian dominated areas outside the region, apart from ''"delis"'' in the Muslim quarters of the Metro Manila urban area. Authentic Satti is served at restaurants and cafeteria outlets that specialize in cooking the food, with recipes being a closely guarded secret. Motivations for cityhood Although some early cities were given charters because of their advantageous or strategic locations (Angeles, Baguio, Cotabato, Olongapo, Tagaytay, Zamboanga City) or in order to especially establish new government centers in otherwise sparsely populated areas (Palayan, Trece Martires, Quezon City), most Philippine cities were originally incorporated to provide a form of localized civil government to an area that is primarily urban, which, due to its compact nature and different demography and local economy, cannot be necessarily handled more efficiently by more rural-oriented provincial and municipal governments. However, not all cities are purely areas of dense urban settlement. To date there are still cities with huge expanses of rural or wilderness areas and considerable non-urban populations, such as Calbayog, Davao (Davao City), Puerto Princesa, and Zamboanga (Zamboanga City) as they were deliberately incorporated with increased future resource needs and urban expansion, as well as strategic considerations, in mind. *Legazpi City (1948–1954) - Legazpi's cityhood was approved on June 18, 1948. Under Republic Act No. 306, Legazpi became a city after the President of the Philippines proclaimed its cityhood. Republic Act No. 306, Chan-Robles Law Library. Comprising the present-day territories of Legazpi City and Daraga (Daraga, Albay), the city was dissolved on June 8, 1954 History of Legazpi City when Legazpi and Daraga were made into separate municipalities. Legazpi eventually became a city on its own on June 12, 1959. *Basilan City (1948–1973) - formerly part of the city of Zamboanga (Zamboanga City) until it was made a city on its own in 1948 through. Republic Act No. 288, Chan-Robles Law Library. Delimited to only the downtown area of what is now Isabela City upon the creation of the province of Basilan in 1973 through Presidential Decree No. 356 by President Ferdinand Marcos. Presidential Decree No. 356, Chan-Robles Law Library. Finally abolished and annexed to the municipality of Isabela on November 7, 1975 by virtue of Presidential Decree No. 824. Presidential Decree No. 824, Chan-Robles Law Library. *Rajah Buayan City (1966) - under Republic Act No. 4413, Republic Act No. 4413 the then-municipality of General Santos in what was then the unified province of Cotabato was to be formally converted into a city named after a historical ruler in Mindanao on January 1, 1966, provided that majority of qualified voters in the municipality vote in favor of cityhood in a plebiscite. In December 1965 the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) proclaimed the cityhood of Rajah Buayan, with 4,422 people voting for and 3,066 voting against. However, two residents of the new city challenged this by arguing in the courts that the number of people who voted in favor of cityhood did not form a majority in light of the fact that there were 15,727 voters in the city. The court issued an injunction on January 4, 1966 restraining city officers from performing any acts authorized by or pursuant to provisions in RA 4413. The Supreme Court (Supreme Court of the Philippines) unanimously upheld this decision on October 29, 1966 and declared that the city charter was not accepted by majority of voters, thus rendering RA4413 null and void.
