THE REAL ESTATE NAN
The club women wonder If the large
piles of refuse and trash of all sorts
by the sides of our city streets do not
advertise tho fact that Pendleton has
very little civic pride, and possibly
does not attract newcomers?
Our city draymen aro evidently, not
very well posted on city limits, as
they are dumping collections from the
center of town on the corner of Jack
son and East Bluff streets. It would
seem that there are large holes that
might be filled up before the street
cornBrs are used for this purpose.
Tho local club women take pride in
tho enterprise of their townsman, Mr.
C. S. Jackson, of the Oregon Dally
