Mercury Falls to 9 Camden Schools Dismiss, Everything Freezes Over As Cold Topples Record Oldtimers Agree Today is Coldest An unexpected holiday for Camden school children, frozen water pipes and automobile radiators and damages to farm crops and flower gardens were reported this morning as the result of a weekend of the coldest weather recorded here in many years. According to unofficial reports, a low temperature of nine degrees, the lowest here since possibly 1935, was recorded early this morning. This morning school officials closed Camden High, the Junior High, Grammar and Pine Tree Hill Schools at 10 o’clock because furnaces could not keep the classrooms warm.
