Default Ending page numbering

This is embarassing. How do I end page numbering in a section of my lengthy
document without also wiping out the page numbers I actually want to keep in
the first section? The object is to have 20-30-40 numbered pages in a
single section followed by 3 or 4 separate pages with each preceded by a
section break.

The gory details: I actually have 4 sections. Sections 2, 3 and 4 are just
1 page each and are actually preexisting documents I inserted. Page
numbering seems to end in sections 2 and 3, but resumes in section 4--where
the page numbering reflects the unnumbered pages in the preceding sections,
which are obviously being counted if not displayed. When I checked Page
Setup for sections 2 and 3 I found that it was set fo Different First Page,
whereas section 4 was not. I changed this setting and now section 4 does
not show any page number. But obviously, the page numbering is still there,
just not displayed for the first page of the section. If the sections were
longer than a single page I would be stuck.
