(By the Associated Press.)
Winona, Minn., Dec. 4 -- Undaunted by the $500,000 fire which yesterday destroyed the main building of the WInona State Teachers College and badly damaged two other campus buildings, students of the institution will attend classes this morning without the delay of a moment.
Classes will be held in public buildings, according to the announcement of officials. The Masonic Temple, the Post Office building, and several churches have been pressed into service as temporary class rooms.
In improvised class rooms, without text book, with their library roofless, their heating plant out of commission, and their main building a charred ruin, the students will keep up "the pursuit of knowledge."
