Bergoff's men - Remington Strike Parley Reached 1 TONAWANDA, N....
Remington Strike Parley Reached 1 TONAWANDA, N. Y., June 8. -(AP -- A Remington Rand strike truce was arranged here today after strike sympathizers, using clubs and stones, drove back most of 100 men with whom the company essayed to reopen its plant. For a few minutes there was much disorder as police and deputy sheriffs swung their clubs in an attempt to end the fighting. There were many minor injuries and several arrests. Then the truce was arranged. James H. Rand, Jr., president of company, appeared unexpectedly and addressed the men for twenty minutes, about 35 persons who ran the gauntlet of pickets during the fight were sent away by the company and most of the pickets were withdrawn. A conference was set for late today.
