From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Feb. 17, 1913:
- "The fast high school five sprang the surprise of the season last night in the Y.M.C.A. gymnasium, when they ran over the College team by a 29 to 25 score. The game was one of the fastest that the high school boys have played this year. In the first half the score seesawed back and forth until the end of the half when the Lawrence boys had the long end of a 14 to 10 score. In the second half both teams made 15 points, which made the score total 29 to 25. The college men were handicapped by the smallness of the court, they being used to plenty of room on the hill."
- "Another evidence of the surprising growth of the Parcel Post was seen in Lawrence this morning when one of Uncle Sam's gray clad employees was seen leaving the local post office riding proudly in a brand new delivery wagon of the latest style. The local business of the parcel post is now handled separate from the other mail and this delivery wagon was found necessary to do this. Two big loads of parcels were delivered the morning by the Parcel Post Man and another was taken out from the office this afternoon. Since the new system was put into operation here the business of the P.P. has been growing until the little infant that was born on the first day of January has grown into a youth and bids fair to become one of the biggest of the government's charges. When the system was inaugurated the parcels were carried out by the regular postmen on their routes. After a few weeks, it was determined that a small runabout should be secured and a special parcel post carrier be put on. For a few weeks this plan worked well and then the runabout was placed in the discard of the inefficient and this morning the wagon appeared."
- "Charles Kaisier, a Douglas County farmer living about five miles south of Eudora, was arrested in Lawrence today on a warrant charging assault with intent to kill. Complaint was made by Louis Seiwald, who lives two and one-half miles east of Eudora. Seiwald charges that he was fired at on Saturday night by Kaisier, also that a dog belonging to him was killed by the defendant. While Seiwald was not injured he asserts that the charge was meant for him and that a number of the shot pierced his clothing."
