Old Home Town - 100 years ago

April 12, 2007


From the Lawrence Daily World for April 12, 1907: "The Douglas County Fair Assn. to control the newly planned county fair is forming a stock company, at $10 a share, to help get financing and planning for the fair here this fall. W.E. Spalding is president and Elmer E. Brown is secretary of the board of directors. .: In an alarming number of murder cases, there is a defense of 'dementia Americana' for suspects. Courts must be harsh with this process. : Theta Nu Epsilon, the fraternity of students whose damaging champagne supper recently was a case for police court, now is practically outlawed by the university. It has a reputation as a drinking group and other fraternities are now preventing their members from joining. "
