[Barbara Knox had the idea that she could rewrite editorials to make them sound better, and would do this even when transcribing historical documents. These two articles could be one in the same as one or both could have been rewritten by her. It would be wise to locate the original newspaper clipping(s) to verify the facts for yourself. -- Rob Yoder]
