The second blast, at 4 p.m.,
shook the building at 35 East
12th street, in which are the
offices of th£ communist news
paper, The Daily Worker; Earl
Browder, general secretary of
the Communist party and can
didate for president; the na
tional and state party head
quarters, and the Young Com
munist league.
The bomb apparently had
been planted near the ground
floor entrance. It wrecked the
double swinging doors and
shattered a plate glass win
1 dow of the “Workers’ Book
shop,” showering two busts of
Stalin with the pieces. A ne
gro elevator operator said he
thought the building was going
to collapse. A woman in the
hallway was cut by glass, the
only injury.
Here again witnesses told police
that they had seen a suspicious
jooking man in the neighborhood.
He parked an automobile near the
building shortly before the blast
and later drove away. Some said
a second man was crouched on
[be car’s running board with a
box large enough to hold a bomb.
Clarence Hathaway, editor of the
Daily Worker, belittled the inci
“ont, but said it “apparently was
the work of some stupid, misled
Waniac, who undoubtedly thinks he
15 giving service to the anti-com
munistic forces.” 1
