Just out of High School I worked for a number of years at a local newspaper, as both a staff writer and a general office 'go-fer'. Every few weeks,
when there was nobody else around, I would be granted the assignment of handling the typing and the eventual formatting of the classified pages.
I can guarantee you that there is simply no way that something like that could have slipped through the cracks. From my personal experience, a single
classified AD is not only proof read a number of times, but also manually typed onto the formatted page.
It seems rather inconceivable to me that nobody could have caught this before it went to print. That's assuming, of course, that they used a system
similar to the one we used at the time.
