Old home town - 100 years ago today

May 12, 2006


From the Lawrence Daily World for May 12, 1906: "Many local women who have had gas-powered stoves installed tell about how much cooler it is cooking that way. 'I used to think there was nothing to compare with a good coal range, but the gas stoves have changed me completely,' one housewife told us. : Prof. Carruth of KU long has been campaigning for a dormitory hall for women and last night he addressed the issue to the federation of women's club attendees here. He made quite an impact. : Prof. Carruth points out that the university also needs an engineering building, a new administration building and another recitation hall. He is being supported in many corners on all his proposed projects but the test now will be getting the money. : The federal government is investigating the capture of three boatloads of Texas fishermen by a Mexican gunboat. Release of the Americans has been demanded but Mexico has been slow to respond."
