Geer will go to Pendleton about Sept. 1
to take editorial control of the Pendleton
. ribune. having purchased an interest in
that sheet from D. P. Dodd. Mr. Geer
said today that he had seen it stated in
the press of the state that he was trying
to break into journalism for political rea
sons. He said that nothinu was further
from his intentions; he has been a news
paper man, likes the work, believes he
will succeed at it and that he will have a
wider sphere of usefulness at the editorial
tripod than at any other business.
To make a long story short," said
Mr. Geer, "I am going to enter news

other men do."
