WzCE TER, Mass., Sept, 27.
) - The .home of Judge Webster
Thayer, 74-year-old jurist, who pre-.
sided at the Sacco-Vanzetti trial, was
destryed. early today by a dynamite
bomb that injured his wife and a
ThI house was wrecked, a garage
a the rear was tipped on its side and
homes for several hundred yards were
shaken, by.thle blast.
Police .said a neighbor saw an auto-
niobile draw up to the front of the
Thayer home a few minutes before
the explosion. A man got out, walked
to therear of the house, ran back to
the attomobile a moment later and
sped away. At the rear, beneath a
veranda andJ directly under the
judge's bedroom, police found bits of
the bomb.
Condition Not Serious
Mrs. Thayer was helped through a
front door by firemen and taken to
MVtemorial hospital, where her condi-
tipn was not regarded as serious. She
received several cuts about the head..
Joan Ashe, the maid, carried down a
fire ladder from her second flooi
room, was taken to City hospital, with
cuts, and bruises.
The judge walked from his home
unaided and remained on the grounds
to offer what aid he might be to in-.
vestigators. He was visibly shaken.
Virtually the entire city was roused
by the blast, which was heard for
Neither the police nor Judge were
ready to Jay the blame.
"I should hate to think," Judge
Thayer said, "that because a man'
does his duty before mankind and
God his penalty is this."
A 1ittle later, in a slightly more
smiling . manner, he commented:
"They can't kill me that easily."

State Approves
Ypsi Highway
Grading on Road to Be
Begun This Fall Over
6.5-Mile Stretch
Authorization of the widening of
Washtenaw Avenue between Ann Ar-
bor and Ypsilanti from 20 feet to 30
feet has been made, according to
Associated Press dispatches f r o m
Lansing. The order was approved by
the highway committee of the state
administrative board, and specifies
improvement over a 6.5 mile stretch.
Officials stated that because of the
lateness of the season the old 1924
road cannot be reconstructed until
next spring, but that grading opera-
tions may be begun this fall. Survey
parties are now at work on plans.
A $5,000,000 federal appropriation
to the state has made the work pos-
sible, the dispatches said.
Secrecy has largely hidden the at-
tempts of several prominent men to
gain approval of the project. Gover-
nor Brucker, Rudolph E. Reichert of
this city, Grover C. Dillman, state
highway commissioner, and L. D.
Townsend, engineer - manager are
among those who have advocated the
A traffic count conducted recently
by Townsend at the intersection of
the highway and the Belt Line cut-
off over a 24-hour period showed that
7,000 cars passed, in spite of the fact
that it rained continually and the
count was made on a Tuesday. Sun-
day traffic is estimated at approxi-
mately double this figure.
The highway is known officially at
US-23 and M-17, but is more oem-
monly called the Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti
road. The widened Michigan Avenue
outlet east of Ypsilanti has become
important as an artery to Detroit,
while thousands of cars use it hourly
on days of football games.
The new highway east of Ypsilanti
has more than accentuated the nar-
row road on the west side, patched
and repaired frequently in its eight
years of existence.

Arthur B. Moehlman and Prof. Clif-
ford Woody, both of the School of
Education, and was presented this
summer at a meeting of the city
superintendents of education in a
meeting at Traverse City.

A commission of three men was
finally appointed by then Gov. Alvan
T. Fuller and they reported they saw
no reason to reserve Judge Thayer's
death sentence.
Judge Thayer was threatened mnany
times and many demonstrations were
held in the vicinity of his home. No
resort was ever made to actual vio-
lence, however, and his home was
guarded each May day as a routine
