Oregon’s quota of the third liberty loan will be heavier than the second loan quota and may be twice as great. The opinion prevailing at the conference in Portland yesterday is that between $40,000,000 and $50,000,000 will have to be raised by this state. The amount to be asked of Umatilla county will accordingly be heavier than previously and the task of raising money here will be difficult, because of heavy past contributions and the big income and excess profits taxes being paid.

Two women who escaped Saturday from the Eastern Oregon Hospital will think twice the next time they try to hitchhike. They flagged down a motorist who was more than happy to give them a ride. He was Pendleton Police Chief Ernie Gallaher, driving an unmarked car. Gallaher took them back to the hospital.

The Pendleton Bucks extended their unbeaten record with a 55-29 romp over the Hermiston Bulldogs in high school girls basketball action Thursday. The Bucks, ranked seventh in the Class 4A state poll, reached the midway point in Intermountain Conference play with a two-game lead on the best of the rest of the pack. Pendleton (6-0, 15-0) used pressure defense to limit Hermiston to only four points in the first quarter and allowed another three in the second to take a 31-7 halftime lead. Hermiston increased defensive pressure on both ends of the floor in the second half and it seemed to help, but Pendleton still outscored the bulldogs 19-13 in the third quarter. Kelli Read led Pendleton with a game-high 18 points.
