From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Oct. 18, 1912:
- "W. Y. Morgan of Hutchinson, an ex-regent of the University and a graduate from the college in the class of 1885, addressed the students of the University in chapel this morning on Women's Suffrage.... Mr. Morgan showed that wherever the plan was tried it met with great success and that the arguments that women lost their womanly characteristics, were placed where they did not belong and did not use the ballot after they obtained it were proved to be entirely false.... "We must be fair and square to them and give them what by right belongs to them. Kansas has always been noted as a state that was close to the band wagon in every procession of progress and if there were no processions going on, Kansas usually starts some of her own. Of all the women in the whole world, who are better qualified or more deserving to vote than our wives, sisters and daughters, the women of Kansas.'"
- "The Journal-World has made arrangements to play the Kansas-Drake game in Lawrence tomorrow afternoon. The paper's Gridiron has been put into shape, rechalked and made to conform with the new rules and the game will be played here just as it takes place in Des Moines and all followers of the game are invited to come down to the office tomorrow afternoon and follow the ball across the field. The Gridiron will be seen in front of the office and the game will be as nearly reproduced as it is possible to do it.... Last year when the Journal-World first tried out its new gridiron the undertaking proved to be a decided success and was greatly appreciated by the football fans, who could not follow the team and see the real game. The plays are taken off a wire in the office and direct from the Drake Stadium so that no time is lost in getting the news to Lawrence fans. Again you are invited to come down to the office and watch the Journal-World play the game tomorrow."
