Socialist Rally166 viewsNorman Thomas Target for Barrage of Eggs in Newark. Newark, N.J.: Rotten eggs and ripe tomatoes break against the face and body of Norman Thomas, Socialist leader, as a crowd of hostile demonstrators go into action to break up a Socialist meeting he attempted to address in Military Park, in the center of the city. The demonstrators, many of them wearing veteran's caps and carrying banners such as 'Reds Keep Out,' marched into the park with a band, which drowned out Thomas as he attempted to speak. Police, who had granted the permit for the meeting, were unable to preserve order and finally escorted Thomas, covered with red and yellow blobs, from the park. Thomas claimed that the pelting was carried out 'by a band of unruly men, obviously taking orders from Jersey City.
