Photograph article dated July 24, 1962 partially reads, "Valley College spokesmen today said the college's current building program will be delayed two weeks because vandals did an estimated $10,000 damage to construction forms...the damage was caused Sunday night after someone turned on a water valve and allowed water to fill a giant excavation ditch...the water ruined several wooden and steel forms...The college is now adding business-journalism and science-mathematics buildings to its campus. The buildings are expected to be completed in the fall of 1963."
