'Bomb Crater' Dedicated: A crater 40 feet in diameter and 6 feet deep was dedicated at noon today by the Most Rev. Walter Schoenerr, auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Detroit. The Interfaith Council for Peace (ICFP) sponsored the crater dig. It is located at Clonlara School, 1289 Jewett. David Houseman, staff member of the Interfaith Council for Peace, says the crater symbolizes those craters created in Indochina by 500-pound bombs dropped by the U.S. Air Force and Navy. The ICFP plans to fill the crater with dirt and symbolically bury items such as toy guns and consumer products manufactured by industries involved with the war in Indochina.
