25 Years Ago

■The Caldor discount store chain filed for protection from its creditors today under Chapter 11 of the federal bankruptcy laws. The Caldor store on North King Street in Northampton, however, was open for business today as usual.

■People involved with the Hampshire County chapter of the American Red Cross celebrated its 80th birthday yesterday, looking both at its past and future. The years since Sept. 17, 1915 — the day the chapter was founded in the Academy of Music to support World War I — were remembered.
