From the Lawrence Daily World for Sept. 30, 1907: "As Claire Haney was going to school this afternoon on his bicycle he collided on the corner between the city library and Central Hotel with W.W. Everett's automobile. Claire was badly bruised but probably escaped death by catching hold of the car. : A committee composed of Dr. Will Gorrill, Henry Asher and Will Hutson has been organized to secure a guaranty fund to bring the Kansas-Missouri football game here on Thanksgiving Day. The committee was not named by the athletic board but has the full support of the chancellor and faculty, who want the game to be on the campuses rather than in cities such as Kansas City."
