'(AP) -- A contractor has described for the jury in the extortion trial of former Louisiana Teamsters boss Edward Grady Partin how men armed with chains, baseball bats and shotguns attacked his construction crew. "They ran over and started beating some of our people and shooting and what-have-you." testified W. 0. Bergeron of Baton Rouge, the third govern, ment witness to take the stand. U.S. Girl Scout Cookie Sale Continuing The annual Girl Scout Cookie Sale has been under way since last week by the more than 3.000 members of NOARK Girl Scout Council and will continue Partin, 48, former business agent of Teamsters Local No. 5 in the Louisiana capital, is accused of directing an extortion attempt against Bergeron. The government alleges that Partin was being paid in 1968-70 by Baton Rouge Cement producer Ted F. Dunham Jr. to drive competitors out of business through labor trouble and strong arm tactics. Bergeron was buying concrete pipe from a Diinham competitor when the attack occurred. Bergeron testified that after the violence, he began buying products from Dunham's com- MRS.

In the Fayetteville area 34 troops with a membership of .746 girls and adult volunteers are conducting the sale. T h e goal, in 1973, is to earn profits to help build a winterized lodge at the campsite near Huntsville to provide facilities for year around troop and training activities and to serve as an infirmary during the summer resident camp. The cookies sell for $1 per box. Ten cents of this remains with the troop, 45 cents goes to pay for. the cookies and the - r e m a i n d e r goes to t h e development of the camp. This ,1s the only source of funds for camp d e v e l o p m e n t . T h e NOARK Girl Scout Camp is used all year by the local ·troops. The council serves a 15 county 'area including Baxter, Benlon, ..Boone, Carroll, Cleburne, Ful^ton, Izard, Madison, Marion, Newton, Searcy, Sharp. Stone, Van Buren and Washington. . Administration and general , operating costs are supported by United Funds in Bentonville, Rogers, Springdale, Fayetteville and Boone County and by community fund drives in other cities. None of these funds are used to develop camp property or provide camping equipment. The camping program is made possible by special gifts and by the girls themselves through the cookie sale. Camp NOARK has been under development since 1965. The site is a multi-purpose facility offering resident camping during summer months and facilities for year around troop activities and training programs. "The huilding program h a s been running far behind camper enrollments although the camp has been developed at an unusually fast rate," said Miss Donna Fincher. council executive. Prior to 1969 the camp could accept fewer than 100 campers because the facilities to house and maintain a feeding program were limited. Since then about 100 additional campers each summer h a v e been accepted when public support enabled construction of a dining hall and pany. He staged by 30 or 40 men about mid-morning Jan. 17, 1968, while his crew of 30 men laid concrete pipe in a subdivision project at Plaquemine, La. ''I seen chains and baseball bats." testified Bergeron. "I think all types of weapons were used, pistols and shotguns." WOUNDED Bergeron said that he, his orother and their 64-year-old fa ther were wounded by bird shot, along with several other workers. One of the raiding party, he said, had his father in a ditch "beating him. I . p u t a pistol to his head and made him get off." The contractor's testimony did not connect Partin with the violence. Defense lawyers attempted to show that the violence arose from labor trouble and Bergeron acknowledged that he did not have a formal contract with the Teamsters. B i l l y Rogers of Jackson, Miss., a former Dunham employee, said that before the attack he had reported to his boss that Bergeron was using pipe bought from a competitor. He said Dunham picked up the telephone and called Partin. He told Ed {Partin), 'I want i to get down there. He's aking pipe from Stevens (the competitor). 1 want you to tear lis goddamned head off and .each him some lessons.' " The violence occurred th'e next day, he said. Rogers also testified that a few weeks earlier he was at a meeting where Dunham computed how much he owed Par- iin. A few days later, said the witness, he delivered more than $20,000 to Partin from Dunham. Rogers' testimony about the alleged payoff conflicted with statements ho made before a MRS.
