for something we already posses a State Norma! School
plant in Eastern Oregon?
Why rote an annual tax of one-twecty-fifth of a mill
form Pendleton Normal when one-fortieth of a mill would
prOTide ample maintenance for the Weston Normal?
Do yoa want to be out of pocket 1325,000 in ten years?
This is the approximate sum that a Pendleton Normal would
cost over and above the cost of the Weston Normal, al
lowing for a nominal increase in state valuations.
Every man, woman and child in Oregon is annually
taxed $30. according to A. IL Harris, a Portland writer.
Taxes for all purposes in 1916 reached the enormous total of
$22,000,920.94 Schools alone cost J7.00O.O0O. Why toss
tax money away by granting Pendleton s absurd demands?

It's ready for use and consists of four buildings and
tea acres of ground. It has been recently inspected and ap
proved by such prominent architects as lieezer Bros, of Se
attle and Osterman Sc Siebert of Walla Walla. Beezer Bros,
say that $2000 properly expended on the principal building
would bring it to an '"almost perfect condition." These sub
stantial taxpayers, officials and men of affairs denounce the
Pendleton scheme as one of "extravagant folly:"

1. Y. Slower, Merchant, r'reewater; C. I. HoOiw, Mayor
of Miiton; H. L. inter, ex-County Coanm'r, Milton.
Why did not Pendleton confine her bill to a normal school
proposition? Why does she seek to "validate" institutions
that are firmly and lawfully established? Is it not clear that
this is a rote catching device? Isn't it "log-rolling" of the
rankest variety?
And finally, would you care to send your children to a
town impregnated with Round Up atmosphere? Isn't it a
fact that a great Round Up town is for that very reason a
poor state school town? Would yoa want your children -to
carouse, dance and gamble' in Happy Canyon or to even wit
ness its wanton revelry? - ;
