BUSINESS DEAN
April 28, 1990
The Kansas University School of Business appears to have attracted a new dean who will bring vitality and new ideas to Summerfield Hall.

MILITARY CUTBACKS
April 28, 1990
In considering and planning how to deal with the American jobless market, leaders must take into account the unemployment which is likely to result from cutbacks in military forces. The economic clout could be substantial in the years ahead. For example, Army Secretary Michael Stone predicts the Army will shrink by one-third over the next few years to its smallest size since the start of World War II. The Navy, Air Force and Marines may have corresponding shrinkage.
HISTORIC WINDOWS ARE REFURBISHED
April 28, 1990
The stained-glass windows at Plymouth Congregational Church have survived a trans-Atlantic boat trip, a church fire in the mid-1950s and more than a century in tornado territory. But one Plymouth member has been busy protecting the windows from perhaps their greatest threat man’s carelessness. Bill Pugh has spent two years working on 10 windows in the church’s sanctuary at 925 Vt. in an effort to clean them and make them safer to operate. The 16-foot tall windows are historical relics, having been put together in England and sent to the oldest church in Kansas more than 100 years ago. Pugh, who specializes in such undertakings, wants them to be around for the next 100 years.
