(Jewish Telegrape Agency)

Many houses in the Old City of Jerusalem were destroyed in a severe snowstorm which raged here all day yesterday. Much damage was caused in the city. Telegraph poles were thrown down in many places.

Due to the storm, several steamers were prevented from landing groups of tourists in the country.

The memorial meetings planned for tomorrow in the Hebrew schools throughout Palestine to commemorate the one hundredth anniversary of the death of Pestalozzi have been postponed.
