From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Oct. 28, 1987:
- The current owner of a 76-year-old "airplane bungalow" at Ninth and Missouri streets said he was "delighted" at the house's recent inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places. The Ralph and Cloyd Achning House had been owned by the Achning family from 1914 until 1985. Ralph Achning had been a prominent local businessman and a city official, while his wife had served as school principal, postal official, and teacher.
- Kansas University seniors today were casting their ballots for one of four professors nominated for the annual HOPE award. The four finalists were Lois Greene (associate professor of design), James Seaver (professor of history; former director of the Western Civilization program), Don Green (distinguished professor of chemical and petroleum engineering; co-director of the Tertiary Oil Recovery Project), and Chip Howat (associate professor of chemistry and petroleum engineering).
