40 years ago: Chancellor reviews recent days

May 18, 2010


At a Lawrence Rotary Club luncheon, Kansas University Chancellor Laurence Chalmers reviewed the events on Mt. Oread in the past 19 days -- arson, vandalism, student dissent -- saying, “The lessons of 19 days and nights at KU are many and complex.” Final exams were under way at the University for those who had opted to stay and take them.

Grading work was nearing completion, but construction had not yet begun at the site of Kresge Co.’s proposed $10 million warehouse.

City Manager Buford Watson apologized on behalf of the city for having “goofed” by forgetting to put up flags on Massachusetts Street in honor of Armed Forces Day.

“Microphone Speaking,” a film product of Centron Corp. of Lawrence, won first place in its category during the 1970 American Film Festival in New York. The film was written by J.D. Powers and directed by Leonard Schneider.
