In his talk Rev. Clark also called at.
tention to the fact that a woman's or
ganization of the Presbyterian church
is looking for a location for a college
that will have funds amounting to $2,.
000,000 for building and operation. He
suggested that an excellent site for
such an Institution, is to be found on
the reservation at the door of Pendle
ton. The iaw provides that land on
a reservation may he sold for educa
tional sites nn such reservations where
the schools have been abandoned.
"Why not dream a little?" the
speaker asked. "Why not go a step
further than w have ever ventured
before? The addition -of a $000,t
college to the attractions of Penrtle
ton would be one f the biggest things
we could do. Some community will
get this college, why not Pendleton?"
