Old home town - 100 years ago today

May 26, 2006


From the Lawrence Daily World for May 26, 1906: "We continue to hear plaudits about the great discovery by the university's H.P. Cady of helium from gas taken in Dexter, Kan. Many say the discovery is one of the major science developments of our time. : Hearings are being conducted for two men accused of burglary at Wolfson's pawn shop but progress toward conviction does not seem to be coming very fast, considering the size of the thefts. : Fifty-four seniors of Lawrence High School will receive their reward for four years of study at the commencement ceremonies on June 1. Schools will close before the ceremony, as usual."
