(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The Hebrew Teachers’ Seminary, which is now erecting a new building under the direction of Dr. David Yellin, was closed yesterday by an order of the Pedagogic Council.

The seminary was closed due to the fact that the students proclaimed a one day strike, urging the seminary authorities to demand that the building contractor employ workers through the Jewish Labor Bureau.
