40 years ago: Teenager suffers accident at local industrial plant

May 18, 2013


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for May 18, 1973:

  • A Eudora woman was reported in "fairly good" condition today after surgery following an industrial accident. Virginia Moore, 17, had had her arm injured in a box-folding machine at E and E Specialties, 910 E. 29th, at about 1 a.m. this morning and had been transported to Lawrence Memorial Hospital for immediate care.
  • Kansas University opened its 101st Commencement weekend with reunions of several groups. The Men's Glee Clubs of 1923-1928, the 1923 National Champions basketball team, and the class of 1933 were gathering to reminisce about the past.
  • In Washington, Watergate burglar James W. McCord Jr. swore today that a former White House aide had repeatedly offered him executive clemency and had told him that President Nixon was aware of the offer. McCord said that he had been urged to remain silent about the wiretapping case and was told that the Nixon administration could fail if the scandal came to light.
