Va. — Parents of jtudents at Keyser High and Elementary schools are much concerned over a cold epidemic which has affected attendance at classes. The epidemic was first noticed about 10 days ago, although some students missed classes before that time. In Keyser High, with an enrollment of 700 students, there were 90 absences last Wednesday. On Thursday, the total fell to 74 and then increased to 100 on Friday. Parker C. Black, principal, said there were 195 absentees Monday and 202 yesterday. The epidemic has struck the high school basketball team hard. Three members of the first team were invalided home yesterday and it is expected they will not be able to play in a game with Piedmont High tonight. In Keyser Elementary Schools, S. T. McGee, principal, said yesterday that there were 250 students home with illness. That is 31 per :ent of the enrollment, he said. McGee said that the epidemic seemed to have struck the lower grades last week,- primarily the first ind second. This week, he added, it has hit the upper grades, the fifth and sixth in particular. Parents are worried because the epidemic, whatever it is, has affected not only two and three in a family jut the parents as well, and they relieve it might be better to close the schools for awhile, to prevent the spreading of the epidemic. One family was reported that had six members of the household as victims of the epidemic. . It is noticeable, report members of some of the families affected, that the illness leaves the patients very weak following the attack, and add that those who have suffered from the attacks show effects of the weakness that extends beyond the length of the actual attack, which has averaged from three days to a week. The illness is not confined to students, as there have been many cases of adult attacks, but from local doctors' viewpoint, the attack has not reached a really serious epidemic stage.
