Article on last page of Friday, October 4 issue – states that the decision to close Radnor schools was made Tuesday night (Oct 1) and they hoped to re-open on Monday (Bwahaha!!)
But first major article on the front page is Oct 11 – Epidemic Influenza – with articles continuing to follow in that same space for next several weeks until November 1 (Influenza Ban Lifted).
