From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Oct. 3, 1971:
- According to an announcement from Kansas University Chancellor Laurence Chalmers, Peter Casagrande, James Hartman and William D. Paden, members of the KU English faculty, had been named to the advisory committee of the Audio Reader Program. Mrs. Anna Ballard Cerf, 1000 Sunset Dr., was also a member of the committee. In the program, newspapers, books and magazines were to be read aloud in twelve daily hours of programming. Special radio receivers were to be loaned to eligible persons wanting the service. Broadcasts were expected to begin sometime this month.
- Students in the fourth grade at Riverside School had recently finished a unit in nutrition, with the final touch being a school lunch planned and prepared by themselves. The meal consisted of meat loaf, tossed salad, vegetables, and cherry cobbler.
