From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for June 23, 1971:
- The trusty who had not returned to the Douglas County Jail after an approved errand was back in jail after having been discovered riding in a car that was stopped about four miles east of Lawrence. The driver claimed that he had picked up Charles Girton as a hitchhiker near Olathe. Girton was then taken to county court, where he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of jailbreak. According to Undersheriff Dallas Murphy, Girton was "not currently a trusty."
- Out on the Kansas Turnpike, a special display was being set up in the Howard Johnson Restaurant at the Lawrence Service Area. The goal of the display was to "give passers-through a good idea of what we have to offer" in Lawrence and at Kansas University, said Bill Gaut, manager of the Lawrence Chamber of Commerce.
