40 years ago: Summer school keeps KU students busy

June 16, 2012


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for June 16, 1972:

  • Summer classes had begun up on Mount Oread. A photo in today's Journal-World of a man at a piano surrounded by female students was accompanied by this caption: "Happiness for a middle-aged Kansas University music professor can be summer mornings spent with a roomful of pretty coeds. Prof. Austin Ledwith manages to concentrate on music theory as his students, Barbara Clements, Donna Williams, Patricia Wolff, Nancy Dalke, and Sandy Hoyt, watch and listen. All the young women enrolled in the five-days-a-week music theory class in Murphy Hall are music education majors."
  • If you were in the mood for a movie tonight, here are some of the offerings from Lawrence theaters. How many of these do you remember? The Varsity was showing "To Find a Man;" the three-screen Hillcrest had "The Groundstar Conspiracy" (with the tagline "only if you like gripping suspense and surprise endings..."), "Johnny Got His Gun," and "Billy Jack;" and the Granada was showing Clint Eastwood in "Dirty Harry." Over at the Sunset Drive-In you could take in "Straw Dogs" with Dustin Hoffman, "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?", and "Derby."
