Woodburn, June. 12.! After holding
an all day and all night session in
this city the board of control for the
proposed Pacific Bible institute -adjourned
without reaching a decision
as to whether the school would be
located here or not. The subscription
list, on which $6000 had been pledged
toward this institution, had a heading
in which were several stipulations
which did not suit the board. It was
stated therein that a $50,000 unit
should be built every year for three
years and it was also called a univer
sity. Now the board wants to call it
a bible institute and take its own time
about putting up the units. Each sub
scriber will have to be consulted as
to these changes and should there be
no objections the board will make its
decision later. As it now stands, Wood
burn still has the inside track ac
cording to their statements.
