THE (LE.lXrP DAT
. Wednesday is the day.
Don't try to dodge it, for tht Is
. Oa that day La Grande is going to
take a bath, get a clean shave and
powder her cheeks. The winter has
been a long one and natural enough
a great' deal of rubbish has accumu
lated In many places. It is Intended
on tms aay appointed lor a cleanup
that a thorough rennovation of back
yards, street and alleys be mad.
We will all feel better after it has
been done, and will be glad that .some
act in unison was started.
A GREAT 8EAS0JT FOR LA GEASDE
No other city In Oregon of its size
has so many public gatherings slat
ed for the season that Is opening as
has La Grande. Leading off with the
athletic meet on May 18th, the teo
ple here will begin a series of en
tertainments that are more than pas
'ft will only be a few weeks until
the dates for holding the annual
ractor In the world today- It moves
everything and to marshal public sen
timent in the right direction is the
work of brave, big men. To cultivate
this sentiment let every home person
see that something is done to help
things along. Report to the heads of
departments and signify your will
ingness to help. That alone will
have a .wonderful influence. Try it
and then. La
Grande will put forth her every ef
fort to care for those who are at- yet there may have been.
KIXD WORDS SPOKEX
The-New Observer " issued "last
night has met with jhe heartiest re
ception in La Grande. As all know
it carried twelve pages of live read
ing matter and advertising and pre
sented a different appearance. The
new beading has the.ndorsement of
all who have mentioned the party,
and that Is no small number. .
One business man "vho has lived
In La Grande for many years and
ha the Interest of the city at hoart
remarked to a representative of this
paper. ; ' . v' -
"It Is a great pleasure for me to
say to you that the Observer Is now
!n the front rank with Eastern Ore-
When Taft told the ad men at Buf
falo that he would rather be alvei
tised than to advertise, perhaps there
was no sarcasm In the' remark, and
ton newspapers." We people in La'
Grande feel delighted ovar the tm-:
piOTement and I am satisfied the
community will appreciate the efforts
leiiig made to make a paper that
:la city will be proud of. As fer my
self, you can count on me doing ev
erything that I can to further the
support to the Observer. Give us a
continuation or the facts about the
country around La Grande and ycu
will avaken an Interest right here at
home that has been entirely too slug
gish. , We Iiave the best valley In
Oregon and now that we have a good
live newspaper I count on the Grande
Ronde coming to the rront as she
never has before." . .
The above conversation wa from
the heart, for the man who was
speaking was not 'one who deala In
the proverbial hot air. He was only
ona of a number who have taken oc
casion" to offer commendatory re
marks to the new Observer, and the
management of this paper feels deep-
the Interest taken in the enter-
prise. '-v.. -
- It will be the intention - to "keep
l the standard and improve Is, No
one expects an Oregonian to be
printed in La Grande, no more than
they, expect Meier ft Frank's depart
ment store to move here. But La
Grande has a right to have a paper
that is equal, or superior to the pa
pers printed in Pendleton, Baker City
or any of the cIUm of Annul lt

i THE RlNEHARlIJTTLE
Portland is to have another hotel.
Most of us thought when Unci Phil
Meacham enlarged and furnished the
new Imperial In such a gorgeous
manner that Portland had about ho
tel room enough. But then, there are
few cities in the country growing as
fast cs Portland.
. The liberality of La Grande's bus
iness men when it comes to -aid all
public enterprises is well known all
along the line. This was demon
strated yesterday when some of the
athletes called on a few business
men to raise money for medals to
be given at the track meet here on
May 18th. There was not a refusal
and not a request that the subscrlp
tlon be lowered. Does not this prove
i "e right kind of people dwell in
this community? Sure, it does;? All
we need Is to breathe out the truths'
about this glorious valley to the out
side world, so let us all get our meg
aphones and get busy. ';;-' :,
