Atlanta Court Denies Bail for Five Charged with Synagogue Bombing

Download PDF for this date

An Atlanta court today denied bail for five men charged with having dynamited the Jewish Temple here two weeks ago. The bail request was rejected on the grounds that the Georgia law under which they were indicted carries a possible capital sentence.

Meanwhile, headquarters for the combined Atlanta police-FBI hunt for the dynamiters was shifted today to the FBI office in this city following discovery yesterday of a bomb containing 20 sticks of dynamite in a weed patch a few miles from Atlanta. Police are investigating all purchases of dynamite in recent weeks.
