"If rendletoa bases its campaign for

no distracting influences. Is ideal"
Or this from the Aurora Observer,
which may be taken to be fairly indica
tive of Willamette valley sentiment:
"The Weston leader hands Pendleton
a few hot shuta for its attempt to be

a proposition to restore to state use the

When Ihe voters and taxpayers of the
state deem It advisable to re-eetablleh
a normal srhool In Eastern Oregon,
we believe that the stale school now In
existence at Weston -w hich waa never
abolished, but merely failed of sup.
portshould be restored to usefulness.
We regard the abandonment of thia
school by the stats senate In ItO as
a high-handed act of political reprisal
"We deplore Pendleton's set In re
newing the Normal school agitation
at thia time as precipitate and Ill-
advised. We fear that Pendleton -e
overweening ambition, which Is well
understood In Ihe Athena community,
has In this particular Instance warped
her Judgment In our opinion Uma
tilla county. Itself, will cast a substan
tial majority against the Pendleton
bill, and Its defeat la practically cer
tain. We fear a fiasco resultant from
Pendleton's campaign that will react
against the normal school prospects
of this section of the stste.
ExrrptkMM to Statement.
"The statement published the
Pendleton committee that the state
school plant at Weston la worthless
and the : administration building
cracked from top to bottom.' Is false
and misleading. Athena Is situated
but three miles from Weston and we
are familiar with conditions there. We
consider the plant aa ample for the
requirements of an Eastern Oregon
Normal school, ' It la in good condi
tion for use. and la now, In fact, be
ing used under lease by the Weston
school district. .Were it true, which
It Is not, thst the principal building Is
cracked from top to bottom.' such
unfitness should militate against In
vestment by taxpayers of tllt.ee In
a new school plant at Pendleton. The
state built at Weston. The Pendleton
charge of failure Implies Its Incompe
tence. : .' .'

by the Weston Normal under serious
