Pipe-Bomb Blast Damages School

School authorities were at a loss Tuesday to explain a pipe-bomb explosion in the doorway of Glenn Curtiss Junior High School in Carson.

The blast, which caused an estimated $1,000 in damage to five windows but injured no one, was reported Monday about 10:50 p.m.

"That is all we know at this point," Principal Virdell Twine said, adding that the school had not been a recent target of vandalism.

A spokesman for the Sheriff's Department said that the school had received no warning of the bombing nor did anyone take responsibility for it.
