That Captain Lee Caldwell will probably have charge of a remount station in France as a result of the horsemanship he displayed at Charlotte, N.C., is the declaration of Corporal Ben H. Inman (Rattlesnake Pete) who arrived in Pendleton yesterday from Charlotte on a month’s furlough. The western boys, especially those of Troop D, were right at home in the handling of horses and quickly claimed the attention of the officers, Corporal Inman states, and Captain Caldwell’s experience as a buckaroo stood him in good stead. Stable Sergeant Frank Cable, who had charge of the feeding of 5000 head of horses, also made a great reputation for himself, “Pete” says.

A clog of stranded cars closed Cabbage Hill for two and a half hours Tuesday night, but police and towing operators said this morning they knew of no major accidents. Slick, snow-packed roads caused a number of trucks, buses and cars to spin out of control on Interstate 84 near Meacham Tuesday evening. Stranded cars near Hilgard forced the freeway to close from 7:30 to 10 p.m., according to Oregon State Police reports.
