From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for May 22, 1912:
- "On next Saturday the Douglas County Equal Suffrage League will have charge of the news department of the Journal-World and will issue an edition of the paper. The women will have entire charge of all of the news of the day and will issue a paper that is after their own ideas and ideals. A complete staff of writers has been selected for this work and the town will be thoroughly covered by them. There will be women reporters in abundance and no doubt it will be a small piece of news that will escape them. No doubt it will be an interesting paper."
- "There is one day in the school year that is marked with more real enjoyment on the part of the city school children than any other and that is fast approaching -- the day on which the 'Old Soldiers' visit the schools. It has long been a custom on the part of the G.A.R. to set aside one day each year on which to go to the various school buildings and talk to the children. It is a custom that is greatly enjoyed by both pupils and the old veterans. The veterans of the Civil War tell tales of the war, army life, some are immensely amusing, others are interesting and inspiring. Lessons of patriotism are taught in a more impressive way in this manner. The boys and girls never forget these stories and each year look forward anxiously to the visit of the soldiers."
- "Reuben Casey, who escaped last week while on his way to the county rock pile, was located in Kansas City yesterday and brought back to Lawrence to serve out the balance of his sentence."
