A proposal that Pendleton’s Stadium Committee be abolished is expected to be heard tonight when the Community Congress holds its second meeting at the Vert Auditorium. John Burak made the initial proposal. The Stadium Committee, comprised of representatives of the school board, city and Round-Up Association, last week rejected the use of the Round-Up Stadium for professional baseball. Burak, who formerly played professional baseball, said the committee was not functional.

A long-haul trailer flipped over on top of a 1981 Datsun, pinning the driver and the passenger inside along the eastern lanes of a snow- and ice-covered I-84 near Meacham at about 12:30 p.m. Monday. The accident happened after the Datsun slid onto the shoulder and rolled to a rest on the passenger side. The driver of the 1985 Peterbilt tried to avoid the Datsun but lost control and spun 360 degrees before colliding with the car, causing the utility trailer it was pulling to flip onto the Datsun. The driver of the Datsun and the passenger are from Eureka, Calif.
