Classes for city schools were to begin Sept. 2. Five extra days added to the calendar would be set aside for special work by teachers, parents and in some cases pupils. But for more pupils, the days would prove to be "vacations."
A new sign was installed at the new Kansas University baseball field near Allen Fieldhouse honoring former athletic director Ernie Quigley, one-time major league baseball umpire. Baseball coach Floyd Temple and athletic director Dutch Lonborg officiated.
