From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for May 15, 1972:
- The previous week's Art in the Park, which had been forced to move indoors due to inclement weather, was getting a second chance today. Lawrence Art Guild organizers estimated a crowd of about 9,000 turned out today in South Park, wandering the exhibits and generating art sales of about $1,568.
- A rally planned for this morning at Kansas University's Strong Hall by anti-war demonstrators had been postponed until tonight after only a handful of people gathered on the building's steps for the planned 11 a.m. event.
- A bulletin on the first page of today's Journal-World announced that Alabama governor George C. Wallace had been shot this afternoon while campaigning at a shopping center. His condition was not yet known.
