From the Lawrence Daily World for Oct. 15, 1907: "The Ministerial Alliance Lecture Course opened last night with the Lyceum Grand Opera Co. and those who attended were quite pleased with the initial offering. : At least 18 were killed today in the London area when a passenger train tried to take a curve too fast and wound up in a horrible crash. : The Kansas University athletic association will hold its meeting in the university chapel Oct. 22 and elect officers. : The big revival tent on the lot in back of the Eldridge House is up and due to draw a huge crowd for the first session."
