ENTRIES SHOW CHANGE
November 15, 1992
John Charlton, a photographer with the Kansas Geological Survey, took a different approach from other entrants with his photographs in the Douglas County Architectural Photography Contest. Charlton, who learned of the competition through the Lawrence Photo Alliance, entered selections from a rephotography project of Douglas County views taken in 1867 by famous Civil War and Abraham Lincoln photographer Alexander Gardner of Washington, D.C.
ANOTHER FORM OF PRESERVATION
November 15, 1992
Earl Iversen describes the meeting room upstairs in Vinland’s Grange Hall as having a “real pristine, historical feel.” There, the Grangers held their ceremonial gatherings against a backdrop of community billboard advertisements that remain in place today.
LIKE A WALK OUT IN THE COUNTRY
November 15, 1992
It’s hard to imagine James Barnes composing quiet, comtemplative chamber music as he drives the winds section of the Kansas University Symphony Orchestra through a rehearsal. He waves his arms and tacks-tacks his baton on the conductor’s stand. He shoots a quick glance to the woodwinds, who are handling a section of Shostakovich’s Ninth Symphony a little too gingerly.
S RENFRO GETS REVENGE
November 15, 1992
Please pardon Leonard Renfro if he sounded a little smug after Colorado’s football game with Kansas. Renfro, a Buffalo defensive tackle, played Saturday on a mission. Seems he took offense at some pre-game comments made by KU quarterback Chip Hilleary and offensive tackle Keith Loneker.
CONCERNS WILLIAMS
November 15, 1992
When Roy Williams refers to slippage, he isn’t talking about the brand new Allen Fieldhouse basketball floor. “We get out there playing 5-on-5, with some people in the stands … there was a lot of slippage. We’ve got to stop that,” Williams, Kansas University’s basketball coach, said after Saturday morning’s 1 -hour scrimmage.
POLICE JAIL, DETAIN 10 PRO-LIFE PROTESTERS
November 15, 1992
Lawrence police handcuffed and removed 10 people who were blocking the entrance to a local physician’s office during an anti-abortion protest Saturday morning. Five adults were arrested and booked into the Douglas County Jail, and five juveniles were detained on charges of criminal trespassing after a group of up to 30 people held an anti-abortion protest in front of the office of Dr. Dale Clinton, 15 E. Seventh.
GOP DOWN BUT NOT OUT, LOCAL POLITICAL OBSERVERS SAY
November 15, 1992
The Grand Ol’ Elephant is woozy after Bill Clinton’s presidential victory, but reports of its demise are exaggerated, say three observers of the local political scene. “I think any kind of initial doomsday stuff is kind of silly,” said Burdett Loomis, professor of political science at Kansas University. “(Republicans) have tremendous factional problems, and we’ll see what happens. But if, say, the really conservative wing of the party wins out in four years, it may be the equivalent of George McGovern in 1972.”

MARINES HONOR WOMAN FROM KU
November 15, 1992
Amber Lucian stood with her hands clasped in front of her, looking calm as she waited for the festivities to begin before Saturday’s Kansas University-University of Colorado football game. She stood among a group of U.S. Marines and chatted with them, saying “sir” when appropriate. The men looked down on her almost 5-foot-4 frame, but they talked to her with the utmost respect. As it was time for Lucian to take the field, Lt. Curtis Everett stepped forward in anticipation. “All right. This is awesome,” he said with a grin.
CU SLIPS PAST JAYHAWKS, 25-18
November 15, 1992
The lead and the ball. Kansas had both three times in the fourth quarter Saturday against Colorado and couldn’t hang onto either one. “We had that game in our hands. All we needed to do was get a couple of first downs,” KU senior tailback Maurice Douglas said.
CREW COURTS KU FOOTBALL RECRUITS
November 15, 1992
They’re called the Crimson Crew. But unlike Kansas University’s Crimson Girls, you won’t find them performing pompon routines for crowds at athletic events. The 40 KU women students in the Crimson Crew have a job that’s a little less visible they help court the sometimes-shy high school and junior college football recruits of Kansas University.
S BEST IN FOOD AND DRINK
November 15, 1992
Here’s food for thought: Where should you take an out-of-town guest for a fine dinner in Lawrence? Or where do you find that great cup of coffee? And where in land-locked Lawrence do you go for good seafood? We’ve got some answers. Actually Journal-World readers have the answers.
LEGISLATORS TO LEARN COMMITTEE SELECTIONS
November 15, 1992
Lawrence legislators elected on Nov. 3 will find out early next month which committees they will be assigned during the 1993 session of the Kansas Legislature.

MARY JOSEPHINE TURNER
November 15, 1992
Mass of the Resurrection for Mary Josephine Turner, 73, Rt. 5, will be at 10 a.m. Tuesday at Corpus Christi Catholic Church with the Rev. James Shaughnessy officiating. Burial will be in Oak Hill Cemetery. Mrs. Turner died Saturday, Nov. 14, 1992, at Humana Hospital, Overland Park.
PLANT EXPANDS BASE OF SERVICE
November 15, 1992
What Uarco Corp. planned for the promotional graphics production facility it opened in 1989 and what it got are, in some important respects, entirely different. But Stuart Ernest, manager of the 114,000-square-foot plant in Intech Business Park, isn’t complaining. As Uarco has modified the mission of the plant, which prints direct-mail advertising, it also has given the facility added responsibilities.
POETRY ON THE PIANO
November 15, 1992
As civil war rages in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Angola, pianist Artur Pizarro prepares to play a Sergei Prokofiev piano piece filled with the fury of World War II. The piece is called the Sonata No. 6, and Pizarro sees its violence reflected in today’s events.

BU CLINCHES PLAYOFF BID, SHARE OF TITLE
November 15, 1992
With a 41-10 victory against Missouri Valley on Saturday, Baker clinched a share of the Heart of America Conference title and a playoff berth. The Wildcats, ranked sixth in NAIA Div. II, finished the regular season at 8-1 in the conference and 9-1 overall. Baker tied with Benedictine for the conference title, but received the conference’s automatic playoff bid because of a head-to-head victory earlier in the season.
CHIEFS READY FOR REDSKINS
November 15, 1992
Pretend, for a moment, you are Washington Redskins’ quarterback Mark Rypien. Standing over center at noon today at Arrowhead Stadium, you look to the right side of the field and see Chiefs’ all pro cornerback Kevin Ross.

EICHLOFF TAKES BLAME FOR MISGUIDED PUNTS
November 15, 1992
Wind gusts at the start of Saturday’s Kansas-Colorado football game were measured out of the north at 15 mph. By the fourth quarter, the flags had stopped waving at Memorial Stadium. “The wind had died down in the fourth quarter. I blame myself,” said Kansas punter Dan Eichloff.
MIZZOU WIN MAY BE MUST FOR KU BOWL
November 15, 1992
Alphabet soup we’ve heard of, but numerical soup??? That’s what the top half of the Big Eight football standings look like today after Strange Saturday, or whatever you want to call yesterday’s wackiness.
