100 years ago: YMCA active at Haskell

March 14, 2012


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for March 14, 1912:

  • "It takes Kansas University girls to have real enterprise. This time it is the girls who belong to the Palette club of the Fine Arts School, for these girls have decided to make their society not only honorary for Kansas University, but to have it installed in other big schools that have art departments. Drake and Minnesota universities have signified their interest and negotiations are now going on with a number of other schools to have the club installed."
  • "The institution that does things at Haskell Institute is the Young Men's Christian Association. Any proposition that requires the backing of the students is taken to the Y.M.C.A. and there it generally meets with the strongest kind of support. The Association is a live institution numbering among its members 128 of the Indian boy students of the school. It has undertaken many propositions and always prosecuted them to a very successful end. Last year the Haskell Y.M.C.A. took up and promoted a plan for an annual banquet to be held for the members and such special guests as they wished to invite. This banquet was such a success that it was made an annual affair and the second one will be held on Friday night at the Association Hall at Haskell."
  • "Mrs. S. Johnson of 1105 Rhode Island St. suffered with rheumatism for 33 years and could not get relief. The Divine Healer Mrs. Geo. Hohenadel, 1030 Mass. St., was called and the relief was permanent after one week's treatment."
