At least temporary respite followed nearly 24 hours of apprehension, during which Sheriff P. A. Lainson'g special force of deputies, armed with tear gas bombs and guns, struggled to make the highways safe for truckers. Escorts Planned A few strikers remained however, on highway 34, scene of last night's disorders. Meanwhile, Lainson, sheriff of a lew nearby comities and 58 deputies prepared to offer armed escort to trucks. Nearly a score of offi- ccrs armed heavily, guarded the county jail and courthouse to prevent recurrence of what authorities thought would be an attempted jail delivery. Lainson, liis men wounded or tired from last night's encounter with the picketers, pressed fresh deputies into service. He said he would nvake every effort to clear the roads of blockaders. No Trouble Today There was no trouble today at the jail and courthouse 'here where 61 men were incarcerated, charged with unlawful assembly. There were rumors that a. jail delivery was planned by the strikers, so Sheriff Lainson. placed at the jail door "sub-machine' gun and posted armed deputies at windows. Only a few automobiles carrying strikers circled about the building. A tense situation prevailed on the Council Bluffs sector early today following flareup of hostilities in which four officers were injured. The injured officers sought to- break the picket lines of striking farmers seeking: lo prevent the shipment of farm produce into the important market center of Omaha, just across the Missouri river from Council Bluffs. Bricks, clubs, and pieces railroad ties flew through the air last night when five officers aided by tear gas, drove through a crowd of picketing farm folk, some of the women and children. Numerous strikers and onlookers were gassed. Despite the efforts of the officers to break up the picket formations, the farmers were back on the highways. The Injured were: Lieut. Col. Henry C. Hall, Iowa national guard, chemical warfare officer, suffered two five-inch gashes on his head; Deputy Game Warden C. H. Pangborn who received a three- inch gash just below one ear; and Policemen Phil Mosher and Watson who were cut and bruised. Drove Through Crowil The four, with Patrolman McTwig- gan, drove through the crowd of strikers with cans of compressed tear gas fastened on the running boards of their car. Strikers ran from the car, gasping and choking. The police car completed a run through the crowd nnd began a return trip. Strikers then massed about the machine throwing bricks and clubs, one of which crashed through the closed windows of the car. After receiving medical attention the fivn officers with 30 ail- ditinnnl deputies returned Lo the scene to supplement the work of 100 already on hand. The situation had quieted, however. Among (he onlookers who suffered from the after-effects of the tear gns were Mrs. Gencvieve Miiuck, reporter of the Council Bluffs Nonpareil. During the afternoon Sheriff Lainson had directed 300 deputies In a flying nttack on all picketing stations on highways and nrrestcd a nunibnr of strikers. At their arraignment before Justice of the Pence Jack DewiM, 13 were sentenced to 30 days In or $100 fines.
