40 years ago: Meat prices declining slightly in Lawrence

March 26, 2013


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for March 26, 1973:

  • Lawrence grocers reported a slight decline in the price of wholesale meats this week, but meat department managers were not optimistic that the decrease would continue. The managers said that poultry was down by about three cents a pound last week with corresponding drops in pork and beef, and they added that the price decreases would be passed on to customers. However, several said that they expected prices to rise again very soon.
  • The Kansas Board of Regents said today that they would announce the name of the new Kansas University chancellor at the board's April 21 meeting on the KU campus. Board chair Jess Stewart said that the search process was approaching its final phase and that the campus advisory committee was planning to submit a list of its five top choices by the end of March.
  • The month was not yet over, but already March had set a rainfall record in Lawrence of 8.26 inches. However, in spite of the above-average precipitation and the swelling of Kansas rivers, the city had been spared any serious flooding so far.
