Reno Evening Gazette – March 14, 1935

CAMDEN NJ, March 14 (AP)- Everyone sighed with relief when Walter Baler, forty-three years old, was given a suspended sentence and left with the evidence.

He was accused of threatening to “blow up” Constable Edward Lewis of nearby Lawnside, with a stick of dynamite. As Assistant Prosecutor Isaac W. Eason displayed dynamite in evidence, it once nearly slipped from his hands.

As Barker, dynamiter for a contractor, was leaving, the prosecutor called:

“Here, take this with you.”

Baler calmly pocketed the evidence and walked out.
