November 27, 1960: Bomber Suspect Identified, Desegregation Bad for Business in New Orleans

"A dynamite and blasting-power watchman for a construction company was questioned yesterday and early today about the recent series of Sunday and holiday bombings" in New York City, according to an article prepared for publication tomorrow in the New York Times. "Detectives described him as a 'red-hot suspect.'"

In New Orleans, federally-imposed desegregation was said to be causing a business downturn, with declines reported in department store sales, in restaurant receipts and elsewhere.

In Cuba, Castro attacked the Roman Catholic clergy in his country as "counter-revolutionists."
