Pushing through a crowd of about 1.000 pickets, police escorted foremen and company officials into the Yale and Towne plant. Several persons were knocked down. Twenty- one pickets were arrested and released on bond. Judge Walter P. Smart issued ar order limiting .picketing at the East Pittsburgh and Lawrenceville, Pa plants of General Electric to 10 per sons to a gate. The order was issucc one day after fighting broke ou between members of the CIO Elec trical Workers Union and non-strik ing supervisors. Strikes and shutdowns kept more than 400,000 American workers idle. [ The 122-day General Motors strike accounted for more than one-third of them.

(U.I'.)—Rudolf Hess opened his defense case before the war crimes tribunal today with a statement in which lie expressly assumed responsibility for "all laws and decrees which he .signed as Ihc fuehrer's deputy and Reich Minister." The case was called after Reichmarshal Hermann Goering'.s lawyer rested hi.s defense. Goeriiuf's defense came to a straggling, unsensational close after eight days when his efforts to make a valedictory speech were blocked. Alfred Seiclcl, Hess' counsel, opened the defense of the Na/i Party deputy who flew to Scotland in 1941 He read an affidavit from Ililde- «grade Path, former secretary to Hess. It said a letter Hess left bc- 'lind for Adolf Hitler when he flew to Britain principally concerned peace proposals. "There was no word about thc Soviet Union, or that a peace treaty was to be concluded with England in order to be free for another front." tli e affidavit said. "In my opinion Hess made this extratiordinary flight In order to prevent further bloodshed and prepare the prerequisite for peace." During hi s testimony, Goering denied that h c believed in the master race theory, even if Adolf Hitler did preach It. The No. 2 Nazi said he believed only that "there is an underlined difference between races." The former Rcichsmarshal ended his cross-examination by clashing with tlie Soviet prosecutor Gen. Roman Rudenko. He tried to make some more speeches when defense attorney Otto Stahm'cr resumed direct examination, but -was cut short.
