Old Home Town - 100 years ago

April 4, 2006


From the Lawrence Daily World for April 4, 1906: "Fred Cleland broke both arms at the wrists while at the YMCA gym last night. In attempting to jump from a pyramid the height of two men, he fell to the floor, striking on both hands. Dr. Anderson set the fractures and this morning the boy was out and about carrying both arms in a sling. It was purely an accident and nobody's fault. : The city election was conducted very quietly today, with few voting and few contests. It hardly merits attention, so low was the interest and participation."
