Of strictly local work the largest
item of building in sight Is the propos
ed addition to the St. Anthony's hos
pital. It is announced by Mother
Solano, in charge of affairs here, that
the sisters of St. Francis are almost
ready to proceed with construction of
their lon contemplated new wing.
Financial arrangements have been
made provided the cost of the work
can be brought down to $200,000 and
the architect is now busy with a revi
sion of plans with this end in view.
The plans are as outlined some months
ago by the East Oregonian and call for
a largo building immediately Joining
the St. Anthony's hospital on the east.
The addition will provide rooms for
go beds and the institution will be
modern in all respects. The new wing
will have a frontage of 92 feet on East
Court street and over 150 feet on the
street, adjoining the institution on the
I templated new theatre In Pendleton."
