Elevator Phone 298 2nd Floor Behind this unique project is Francis B lerardi a mildman nered softspoken man of 42 who originated the idea of a newspaper for the blind and who has edited the pubhcatipn sinceit was established in March 1927 from the age of 12 the ob stacles he encountered in to keep in touch with the new3 of the day inspired him to create a medium thru which a record of cur rent events might be brot at regu lar intervals to the thousands of others similarly handicapped j The Weekly News was started j in a modest way Two hundred ooo ies comprised the initial issue But blind were quick tograsp I the value of the innovation and the circulation climbed swiftly until to day 850 copies are beingpublished There is a demand for many times that number but since the publica tion has no subscription rate and carries no advertising it is not fi1 nancially possible to operate on a llarger scale at present Editor lerardi pointed out in a interview that the 850 figure was by no means an accurate barometer of the actual number of readers be cause copies of the paper were passed from hand to hand with a single copy in some instances bem digested by more than a score of persons
