To the Editor:
Recently, I chanced upon a 1947 travel guide which described Lawrence as a city of 15,000 people with a university approaching 5,000 students.
In those days, Sixth Street dead-ended at Massachusetts and California streets; there was no Iowa Street; 23rd Street was two-lane; everything west of Louisiana and south of 19th Street was farmland; and we had one high school (now Central Junior High).
It seems reasonable to accept the idea we now need two high schools.
And if we build those roads, we better have another high school.
