PEN PALS PROVE KANSAS BASEBALL ON RISE, BUT BINGHAM CAUTIOUS
October 2, 1993
One thing about Kansas University sports fans, they sure like to communicate with the Jayhawk coaches. “I hate to admit this, but I have a stack of phone messages and letters of congratulations on my desk. I haven’t been able to respond to all of them,” said KU baseball coach Dave Bingham, flooded with correspondence after last spring’s appearance in the College World Series.
DESOTO HOLDS ON, 21-14
October 2, 1993
Perry-Lecompton has nothing on David Letterman. The Kaws were a late show Friday night. After spotting DeSoto three touchdowns, Perry-Lecompton came within 20 yards of forging a tie before bowing 21-14 to the Wildcats in Kaw Valley League football.
KU GENDER PAY GAP CUTS BOTH WAYS
October 2, 1993
The department chaired by Nita Sundbye in the School of Education appears to be the exception instead of the rule at Kansas University. “There is no salary discrepancy here … based on gender,” said Sundbye, professor and chair of curriculum and instruction.
SATURDAY COLUMN
October 2, 1993
It is doubtful there could be a better example of the importance of private fiscal support for a state-aided university than what has taken place this past week at Kansas University. Tuesday evening, the magnificent Lied Center at KU was formally opened, and this outstanding facility is likely to become one of the true gems of the university as well as the entire region. Because of the excellence of the Lied Center, hundreds of thousands of KU students and area residents will be able to see and hear the finest in various theater, music and dance presentations. It will enrich the lives of thousands upon thousands and it will help make Lawrence an even finer place in which to live and work.
VACCINATION PLAN GETS (AIR)LIFT FROM GUARD
October 2, 1993
Like the opening scene in the 1970s television show “M*A*S*H,” a UH-1H helicopter swooped into town Friday to deliver serum for vaccinations. The Kansas Army National Guard transported serum to Lawrence, Olathe, Kansas City, Wichita, Dodge City and Garden City in preparation for one phase of Operation Immunize this weekend. The campaign, sponsored by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, aims to fully immunize 90 percent of the state’s children 2 years old and younger by the year 2000.
PRAEGER EYES LARGER RISK POOL FOR INSURANCE PLAN
October 2, 1993
One of the steps the Kansas Legislature can take next year toward health care reform in the state is to mandate larger insurance risk pools, says a Lawrence legislator. Mandating insurance companies to make larger risk pools would bring down insurance premiums for the average person, said Sen. Sandy Praeger, R-Lawrence.
CORRECTION
October 2, 1993
Thursday’s edition of the Journal-World gave an incorrect time for a recital by Kansas University faculty members Larry Maxey, clarinetist, and Linda Maxey, marimba player. The recital will begin at 7:30 p.m. Monday in KU’s Swarthout Recital Hall. Because of an editor’s error, a quote in a story about Kansas University programs being recognized in two national magazines was unclear. Chancellor Gene Budig said KU would rank higher in U.S. News if the Kansas Legislature allowed KU to adopt qualified admissions. Kansas is the only state in the nation that guarantees Kansas high school graduates a place at a state university. “That fact continues to disadvantage KU in the U.S. News and World Report study because that publication places unusual weight on selectivity,” Budig said.
LAWRENCE MAN CHARGED IN CHECKERS ROBBERY
October 2, 1993
A 24-year-old Lawrence man was charged Friday in connection with a robbery earlier in the day at Checkers Foods, 2300 La. Chad Allen Beers, 1522 Wedgewood, was charged Friday with aggravated robbery, felony theft and obstruction of official duty.
KU, CSU MEET TODAY
October 2, 1993
Colorado State, 1-3, at Kansas, 1-3. It’s not exactly the Super Bowl. Then again, there are a lot worse games, CSU coach Sonny Lubick says. “I think both our deals is we’re pretty darn good football teams who have played good opponents,” Lubick said. “It seems like, watching Kansas, they’re thinking the same thing we are — they’ve gotta make a catch here or break a run there. If you do those things, it changes your whole offense.
ONE-PLATOON FOOTBALL WOULD EASE THE PAIN
October 2, 1993
It’s increasingly hurtful for me to watch football games, in person or via television, because of all the injuries that occur. It must be almost as bad in practice, where teams also send a lot of people to the sidelines. You see a shattering incident like the one where New York Jet Dennis Byrd almost got vegetable-ized against the Kansas City Chiefs.
CHANCELLORS CLUB HONORS PROFS
October 2, 1993
Pomp and circumstance surrounded an annual ceremony Friday night in which two Kansas University professors and 10 freshmen were recognized by major supporters of KU. The 1993 Chancellors Club awards and scholarship winners were presented during the 16th annual Chancellors Club meeting Friday night at the Lawrence Holidome, 200 McDonald Dr.

October 2, 1993
Antique automobile buffs will get a history lesson Sunday in Lawrence about the ways fires were fought long ago. Firefighting equipment from across the state will be part of the 21st annual Lawrence Car Show.
