Why is it that the Lawrence Journal-World refers to the University of Kansas as Kansas University?

The Journal-World and other organizations - including some associated with the university - have long made Kansas University the preferred usage. To name others: the Kansas University Endowment Association, the Kansas University Alumni Association, Kansas University Transportation Center and Kansas University Center on Developmental Disabilities. Also, the preferred shorthand for the university is KU, not U of K.
