100 years ago: Course on table manners instituted at K-State

December 29, 2010


From the Lawrence Daily World for Dec. 29, 1910:

  • “Lawrence is becoming recognized as quite a feeding center. Dozens of cars of stock are shipped here and fattened every winter. It not only has the largest mule market in the west, but is also a great shipping point for sheep. At present eleven cars of sheep are being fed in the Lake View neighborhood.”
  • “A new course of study is being prepared at the Kansas Agricultural college and it will be installed as a part of the regular work of the students in the spring term. It is a course in table manners and was asked for by some of the young men in the senior class, and while it is proposed to make the course one of the required studies for graduation and will be given in the senior year this year, it will become a part of the early training of the students.”
  • “Miss Hattie Radcliffe is today wearing a handsome gold cross, suspended from a gold chain around her neck, as a recognition by Trinity Episcopal church of her faithful attendance at Sunday school. Miss Radcliffe began attending this Sunday school in the summer of 1876 and has not missed a Sunday since then. Her record for church attendance is almost as good.”
