Today is Wednesday, June 4, 2014. Here are news reports from this date 100, 50 and 15 years ago:

In 1914: "The Elopement of Ellen" was presented by the seniors of the Urbana High School in the Illinois Theatre last evening. The production was a relief from the usual amateur play in that none of the actors forgot their lines, and it went from beginning to end without a hitch.

In 1964: The Pennsylvania Avenue Baptist Church, 600 E. Pennsylvania Ave., U, voted Wednesday to begin construction on the adopted perspective for their new sanctuary. It will be just east of the present building, at the corner of Pennsylvania and Anderson.

In 1999: The 6th Judicial Circuit is accepting applications for associate judge to fill a vacancy created by the resignation of Donald Parkinson. An associate Champaign County judge for 16 years, Parkinson announced last week that he plans to leave the bench on June 30.
