Kansas University conducted an open house for the new Joseph R. Pearson Hall at 11th Street and West Campus Road.

"The Father of the Kansas University Medical School," Dr. George H. Hoxie, died at his home in Berkeley, Calif., at the age of 87. He had suffered from a heart ailment for several years. He had joined the KU teaching staff in 1905 and and became dean of clinical medicine and organizer of the medical school. The original building was in the old Flatiron Building in Kansas City, Kan.

KU was preparing for its annual Spring Homecoming with the Kansas Relays and the engineering exposition as the focal points for the observance.
