In the newspaper, you will notice that some of the letters are underlined.

The underlined letters spell "Ottendorf Cipher Hit and Run Article"

Googling what an Ottendorf Cipher is, you will see that it uses a series of three numbers to identify letters in a book or article. The first number identifies the line in the text, the second number identifies the word in that line, and the third number identifies the letter in that word.

At the top of the front of the newspaper, you will notice four series, each containing three numbers. Using the Ottendorf cipher, apply these to the Hit and Run article on the back.
