Tlic egroes sat across the aisle from •the. 9,-hite benches. • Judge Hall said the courtroom crowd was the largest since 1945 when he. tried 135 men on charges Of scalping football tickets. The only time Taylor spoke directly to the court was to correct the judge, w ho referred to him as ' 'Che Senator from Utah." ' "Idaho,"-Taylor said shortly. Birmingham policemen testified that Taylor attempted to shoulder his way past them through the Negro entrance. He tripped over several stands of bjjbcti wire 'jn the Negro church lawn, they said, and then came up swinging.

Workers who have not had an important strike or labor disturbance in over SO years!.. .Workers who today average over 14 years apiece of service with the company!...Workers with regular, paid vacations each year.
