October 16, 1956
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Damage estimated at $150,000 was incurred when fire broke out in a new building on the new site of the Telse Yeshiva College campus in Wicliffe and razed it to the ground. The building, the ground floor of which was being used temporarily as administrative offices, was to have received 80 students this week in a shift from the over-crowded dormitories of the old buildings. Students already in residence on the new campus saved much of the office equipment and records from the blaze.
