The Camas Prairie Railroad Co. depot at Lewiston had an unusual visitor yesterday - a three-unit diesel locomotive normally used on transcontinental passenger runs.

The engine replaced the motorcar that normally makes the daily round-trip Spokane-to-Lewiston passenger run for Northern Pacific Railway.

The three-unit engine, which normally runs between Seattle and Chicago, was placed on the Spokane-Lewiston line for the day to take 13 carloads of youngsters from Spokane to Pullman for the Washington 4-H club convention.

An application for permission to build a $140,000, 50-bed nursing home addition to Tri-State Memorial Hospital was sent to the Washington State Department of Health at Seattle.

Philip Roth, administrator of the hospital, said, "Because of the close proximity of complete medical facilities, as well as the greater utilization of present hospital facilities, such a nursing home will be of great benefit to the Lewis-Clark Empire.

"By combining the two, the overall cost of operating the nursing home and the hospital will be reduced. This will be a factor in lowering the cost to patients of both the nursing home and the regular patients at the hospital."
