Description: "01/24/1967: Two juvenile members of a self-styled Nazi group were charged with plotting to manufacture a bomb that exploded in the east-end Paul Sauve Arena. The bomb was thrown into the entrance way of the arena during a dance, to attract attention to their ""Nazi"" group. A small amount of gun-powder and a box of wooden matches was used to form the bomb. No damage whatsoever was caused by the device. A third juvenile was also involved in the incident. A judge claimed that the youths wanted to resurrect the Nazi party without even knowing what a Nazi was, and that their object was to ""get talked about""."
