Philanthropist Raymond G. Perelman has given the Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia $50 million dollars in order to develop an 8-acre campus for health research and scholarship. The new campus will be a hub of pediatric research.

 

A 17-year-old girl was attacked on the 15 trolley while on her way to school. Reports claim that the girls bag kept hitting a man while they were on the crowded trolley. Apparently the man became enraged and struck the girl 3-4 times in the face. She was left with a black eye and a broken nose, while the man ran off the trolley. Detectives are still investigating this incident.
