Events occurring on Tuesday, January 17, 1933  
  The Philippines Before WW2  
  The Hare-Hawes-Cutting Philippine Independence bill was passed over the veto of U.S. President's Herbert C. Hoover. The bill had been legislated in December 1933 and promised Philippine independence after 10 years, but reserved several military and naval bases for the United States, as well as imposing tariffs and quotas on Philippine exports. It also required the Philippine Senate to ratify the law. The Philippine Senate rejected the bill and advocated a new bill that won the support of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The result was the Tydings-McDuffie Act of 1934 which was very similar to the Hare-Hawes-Cutting Act and would be ratified by the Philippine Senate.
