Background: Police in Chicago fear a deranged bomber in loose in the city. There have been four bombings in the past five days. The latest blast occurred this morning (Monday).
The latest bombing target was an ice cream plant. Six trucks were damaged. So was the factory's ceiling. None of the employees were hurt. Several hours earlier there was another blast near the downtown section of the city. Two automobiles were destroyed. No one was injured.
Last week a bomb went off in the offices of a business machine company, causing 250 thousand dollars in damages. Like the other blasts, there were no injuries.
But, police fear that the next bomb explosion may hurt someone. They are combing the city for, what they call, "the Mad Bomber."
Meanwhile, many residents in the city of 3,000,000 people are expressing more and more apprehension about the bomber.
