Miss Stasia P. Walsh, only Pendleton woman who saw service overseas as a member of a hospital unit, returned today with two gold stripes for service as a nurse with Base Hospital 46. This hospital unit returned some time ago but Miss Walsh was retained for further service. Miss Walsh was met at the train by Pendleton friends and by a delegation of nurses from St. Anthony’s hospital. “I can’t tell you how happy I am to see these familiar faces and to be back in Pendleton again,” said Miss Walsh.

The Eastern Oregon Alcoholism Foundation has announced a five-year, $500,000 plan to upgrade facilities at the Southwest Pendleton location. The plans calls for the replacement of aging facilities with new construction under a four-phase plan. The foundation currently operates out of the 100-year-old Martin Gish House at 304 Southwest Hailey. The final phase of the plan calls for the destruction of that home. Construction began in April on a new building across the street from the Gish House at 216 Southwest Hailey. The new building, representing the first phase of the upgrade plan, will house a kitchen, food storage area and more office space. Foundation officials hope the new building will be finished and usable by September.
