Old Home Town - 100 years ago

October 22, 2008


From the Lawrence Daily World for Oct. 22, 1908: "A determined campaign is being waged this fall against university girls making mid-week dates except for special occasions. The faculty is discussing the issue and is asking that the girls help make the new plan a success. The goal is to give the girls more time for study and several sororities already have adopted the policy. : Butter and egg prices have never been as high and farmers here are reaping the gains. Some butter is drawing at least 25 cents a pound and a dozen eggs are now going for as much as 18 cents."
