Below the photo is text in four columns: "City Hall exploded in violence yesterday as a / shouting crowd of 200 demanded entrance / to a hearing of the House Un-American Acti- / vities subcommittee. When a policeman was / knocked down, officers used their clubs and / fire hoses, and the rotunda looked like this. / Most of the crowd had been dispersed or / hauled off to jails, but police were still drag- / ging soaked demonstrators down the stair- / case. Four hundred officers answered the / riot call: 12 persons were injured. For stories / and more pictures, see Pages B, a, 2, 3.".
