APR 13-100 YEARS AGO
April 13, 1999
IN 1899 On April 13, 1899, the Lawrence Journal editorialized: “In ordering a substantial and permanent walk on the west side of Massachusetts street through the park, the city council has inaugurated a movement that is to be commended. The walk should be of the best material, stone or cement, and should be such as will correspond with the walk on the other side. The walk already laid on the east side has been there for years, is as good today as when it was laid, and has never cost one cent for repairs. The proposition to put a ‘cheap walk’ on the west side should not be listened to for an instant. A cheap walk of the kind urged would in the end prove the most expensive one that could be put down ” The Journal is assured that a first class walk can be put down at a cost not to exceed $700. Why, then, should the council invest $400 in a miserable excuse for a walk that will be an eyesore to the town, and a constant source of expense as long as it shall remain?”

KU BASEBALL IN SLUMP
April 13, 1999

It all falls on our shoulders if he gets hurt. That’s a lot of pressure.”

TRAP CLOSING AROUND MILOSEVIC
April 13, 1999
Slobodan Milosevic caught NATO’s leaders unprepared for his brutal use of Kosovo’s civilians as a weapon of war. But the vicious trap he engineered is now swinging shut around the Serbian ruler himself. He has made it impossible for NATO to accept any end to the war that does not include the total removal of his control over Kosovo — now, and forever. The refugees have gone from being a war tool for Milosevic to becoming an unanticipated war aim for NATO: The hundreds of thousands of civilians driven at gunpoint into the Kosovar wilderness and into neighboring countries must be returned, in safety, to the territory they have fled.
