25 years ago: Anti-Semitic vandalism reported on KU campus

April 22, 2013


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for April 22, 1988:

  • Members of a Jewish group at Kansas University were undecided on whether to make an official response to two recent incidents of vandalism and anti-Semitic slurs on campus. The information booth for the Hillel group had been defaced by offensive words and slogans earlier this week, while in another incident, a professor's office door had been similarly vandalized. Both incidents had been reported to KU police, who were still investigating. "What really bothers me is that someone went in the middle of the day, in broad daylight, and did this," said Hillel director Daveen Litwin. "Someone must have seen this and they did nothing."
  • The nation's airlines were preparing for reactions to new federal regulations banning smoking on all domestic flights lasting less than two hours. Passengers flouting the new rules were to face fines of up to $1,000.
