100 years ago: Living accommodations sought for KU girl

December 8, 2011


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Dec. 8, 1911:

  • "Have you a place in your home for a girl attending the University, who although eager to attain a higher education, has not the money to pay her expenses? If you have, you should let Miss Nadia Thomas, secretary of the K.U. Y.W.C.A., know. Miss Thomas can be reached by Bell Phone 1818. This girl can not stay at school unless she has some place to live. Some one who wishes a companion, a girl who can help with the work, out of school hours, and for which she will receive her board and room, should let Miss Thomas know. This girl had her arrangements made but because of unforeseen circumstances, she has had to give up the place where she was. If someone does not help her within the next two days she must return home, another person discouraged with trying to battle for higher things. In all Lawrence there must be some one who desires to help this girl, and who at the same time wishes some benefit. Is it you who can help?"
  • "The official route of the ocean to ocean highway is being named at Topeka today. Representatives from Lawrence, Topeka, Osage City, Emporia, Scranton, Lecompton and Burlingame are in Topeka today for this purpose."
