The first baby born here in 1957 was a seven pound eleven ounce daughter, the third child of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Stangier of Pendleton. The girl was named Megan and was born an hour after she arrived at St. Anthony's hospital at 3:25 p.m. Wednesday. Coincidentally, the new arrival has a cousin, Tina Wyrick, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Gus Wyrick, who was the first baby of the new years about nine years ago.

Most highways in Oregon mountains were closed early today and many student got an extra day of vacation as the latest in a series of storms dumped snow over much of the state.
