40 years ago: University students to meet with governor for discussion

September 29, 2011


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Sept. 29, 1971:

  • Eleven students, representing the state's six college and universities, were to meet with Gov. Robert Docking to discuss their views on issues in higher education. The governor was planning to have a dinner for the students at the executive mansion, Cedar Crest, followed by a meeting to get to know "their opinions and suggestions regarding higher education, student concerns and their roles as student leaders." Reporters had been invited to meet with the students after the discussion to learn what they had discussed with the governor.
  • Oscar Rojas, art director at Centron Corporation, had designed a logo for this year's United Fund campaign. His "arresting graphic design" was described this way: "It can be read several ways, as he intended. Bold red letters insist that U CAN -- but the small 'United Fund' within the 'U' indicates that the eye-catching letter stands for the campaign itself as well as 'you.' The blue letters which separate the 'U' from the 'CAN' display the message, too, that 'Lawrence, Kan., can.'"
