Old Home Town - 100 years ago

January 27, 2008


From the Lawrence Daily World for Jan. 27, 1908: "Wireless phones are being found important to people such as the officers on our ships now on a world tour. Captains can converse with each other other directly rather than using telegraphic means and this is one of the first practical applications of the new procedure. Its future looks bright. : City schools today began their spring term after the recent 'promotion day'' when youngsters moved up a step on the educational ladder. Some pupils have been transferred to different buildings to even the sizes of the classes. . . . County Democrats met the past weekend and elected W.S. Everett chairman, D.H. Lewis secretary and T.J. Sweeney treasurer. They called a convention here Feb. 15 to elect delegates for the Feb. 21 Hutchinson convention."
