With pleasure the East Oregonian announces the fol
lowing new features: . '
Starting today we have in addition to the Associated
Press and United Press wire reports the wire report of the
International Newsservice and the superb mail service of
that organization, including sporting news features, to ap
Starting next Monday, June 20, we will carry as a reg
ular feature "Bringing Up Father," the world's most pop
ular comic strip. , - u
. The East Oregonian is the only small daily m the
United States carrying wire news from the three large
. press associations. No other northwest newspaper, large
or small, has the advantage of the three services. Though '
the full reports cannot be used because of lack of s,pace
: this paper will have at its command news sources not
: available even to the metropolitan papers in Portland, Se
; attle or Spokane. This improvement in service has been
secured in line with the fixed purpose of the publishers to
make the East Oregonian the best paper in the world pub
lished in a town the size of Pendleton.
Within a few weeks time a change will be made in the
Saturday comic feature. In lieu of some features now in
use we will carry "Our Family Circle Page," consisting of
several comic strips, a cartoon "That Little Game," puzzle
pictures and "Sketches from Life" by Tettiple. Thi3 page
will be appreciated by readers of all ages.' The new page
" in addition to "Slim Jim" will be published in black as
part of the regular Saturday's daily.
