From the Lawrence Daily World for Nov. 10, 1908: "In a chapel talk today, Prof. J.E. Boodin urged the building of university dormitories for both the boys and girls at the school. He said it would greatly better the life among the students and that the legislature should be asked for funds to build them. He also urged the founding of a 'Commons' similar to those in large eastern universities where the students could get their board at cost."
