NORWOOD. Sept 5—Dr Charles L. Lynch, chairman of the Board of Health, announced late this afternoon that following a meeting of his board held today, it was decided to close the public and parochial schools of this town until Tuesday, Oct 1. as a precautionary measure against the spread of infantile paralysis. The schools were originally scheduled to open Sept 10.

This town was peculiarly fortunate with no cases of the disease reported until the past week, when two cases appeared.
