  2. Hello Glenn,
    Google News used to allow an advanced search for historical news but that feature is now blocked. Luckily, many years ago I had saved a lot of direct links and that’s how I search now. If you click on the Toronto Daily Mail link above you’ll reach the original article and you can type your terms in the Search Archive box at the top of the page.
    If you type Lacrosse there are quite a few hits, but I do think many have been suppressed.
    Good luck!
