Old Home Town - 100 years ago

November 14, 2008


From the Lawrence Daily World for Nov. 14, 1908: The Kansas football team walloped Nebraska at Lincoln by a score of 20-5 and remained unbeaten. Excitement over the game was tremendous and many went from here to watch. Nebraska had been quite outspoken about giving the university its first defeat but the university now proudly sports a 7-0 record. Next game for the university is Nov. 21 at Iowa University. The Lyric theater here made special arrangements to flash the progress of the game on the screen here during the shows. . . .

The local apple crop is due to be outstanding but the corn crop is considered disappointing by most standards. But since the price per bushel is high, farmers are generally satisfied with their financial arrangements.
