40 years ago: Arson suspected in house fire near KU

June 9, 2014


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for June 9, 1974:

  • A vacant house on the edge of the Kansas University campus had been severely damaged by fire, with first reports indicating arson as the cause. The second and third floors of a building at 1241 Louisiana Street had been engulfed in flames when firefighters answered a call at about 4:10 a.m. today. The Kansas University Endowment Association had contracted to take possession of the structure on June 15, and razing had been scheduled for the next day.
  • Counselors at Topeka's Carriage House Project were reporting success with guided imagery techniques for some of their therapy sessions. "Aided by carefully selected music, the participants took a trip in their subconscious," an article described the experience. "I use it to illustrate an altered state of consciousness similar to dope -- to show what it's like to be stoned," said Carriage House administrative director Arnold Buntain.
