From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Feb. 10, 1912:
- "The university girls are always interested in projects that will bring their college before the people. The latest of their endeavors will be that which will be instituted next Saturday in the Dick Bldg at three o'clock when a story hour will be opened for the children of the town. This story hour which is not designed to conflict in any way with the one at the city library will be open to all children of the city who enjoy listening to stories. The girls who will do the story telling are pupils in the expression department of the University. No stories will be told that have not been strictly censored. The stories will be those written by authors of good standing including mythology, classic tales and others that are good for children to hear. After a story is told the girl in charge will ask the children to tell it again, and only the best English will be permitted."
- "The program for the monthly meeting of the Lawrence Commercial club to be held on next Tuesday night includes a varied amount of business which is of much importance to the club and to the city of Lawrence. There is always the regular business but at this meeting many new issues are to be taken up and discussed.... The matter of the general needs of the city in the way of fire protection is to be one of the principal subjects up for discussion.... This is an old and often discussed subject in Lawrence and no doubt the outcome of Tuesday night's meeting will be closely watched."
