From the Lawrence Daily World for Nov. 28, 1909: The Citizens Light, Heat and Power Co. of Lawrence has secured an injunction against the Kansas Natural Gas Co. restraining the latter from interfering with the gas supply at Haskell. This has been a bone of contention for some time. . . . Prof. F.W. Parmelee is urging a law creating public defenders to help those who cannot afford an attorney. He seems to be gaining support, particularly from the law faculty at the university here. . . . The eligibility rules in the universities of the Missouri Valley Conference are to be more stringent than ever. As of now, there will be no more playing of men after they have received a degree at a university. There have been a lot of “graduate students” playing in recent times. Officials are also frowning on training tables such as KU has but so far there is no rule to abolish it. Officials of the MVC also have been discussing the spy system where coaches send people to learn what opponents are doing. While there is no law against it yet, the unethical process may soon be covered in the rules.
