From the Lawrence Daily World for Sept. 12, 1907: "The high school had 564 pupils last year but officials do not expect that many this fall after enrollment is finalized. Lower grades have not been as large as usual and this transmits to high school totals that are lower. : Dr. S.J. Crumbine, secretary of the state board of health, has been discussing typhoid and its symptoms and dangers recently after there arose great concern about the Lawrence city water supply. All communities are paying special attention since the disease can lead to many fatalities."
