The witness, Roy Byrd of Batavia, Ohio, a Cincinnati suburb, displayed red, welted scars on the right shoulder and forearm—the .evidence of gunshot wounds which .left him partially disabled. He testified as thr Senate ..Rackets Committee opened an in- vstigation into what it described as a pattern of violence stemming, from Teamster organizing drives 'in the South.

McClellan '(D-Ark.) charged in opening the j ; hearings that law enforcement | officials had failed k> crack down • on the "goon squad" activities in '. Tennessee and four neighboring • states. Byrd, 30, now manager of the ' Newman Pemberton Co. terminal in Cincinnati, had some trouble removing his coat and shirt because of stiffness in the arm and shoulder.. McClellan asked him to exhibit his wounds so they could •be photographed for the committee's files. Byrd testified that on the night of Aug.-8, 1956, as his truck was climbing a ' hill' near LaFollette, Tenn., assailants opened fire from an embankment. He said 14 or 16 . bullets hit the truck, one of them going completely* through his right '.shoulder. His relief driver was asleep and was not hurt. Byrd's employer, J. R. Pember- ton, told the committee that Teamster Local 621. in Knoxville, Tenn., called a strike against his firm in 1956 while trying to organize long-haul drivers. Pemberton said there were about a dozen acts i" violence, including three shootings and two dynamitings during the five-month organising drive.

List 92 Killed In Rail Crash Say Disaster Is One Of Britain's Worst LONrDON (UP)—Rescue crews hampered by fog for more than 24 hours Thursday night soughi more bodies in the wreckage ol one of Britain's worst train crashes. A new siege of smoke and fog damped down over the disaster scene where a speeding passienger train piled into a crowded corn- muter train halted by smog on the Mid-Kent mainline in South London Wednesday night. ^ j Ninety-two bodies had been taken from the wreckage by ':30 t p.m., 25 hours after the wreck. Hospitals and police listed 187 injured, 110 seriously. Rescuers feared three to five more bodies still might lie in two coaches smashed almost flat under an overhead bridge which collapsed on the wreckage. A third train, about to cross the bridge when it collapsed, halted with its front wheels teetering over the edge. An estimated 2,000 persons, mostly commuters and Christmas shoppers, had been on the three trains. All the casualties were believed British except for one New Zealander. "It is unlikely we shall ever know how many people were in that coach," a railway official said of the worst-hit car. "All we can do is check with a list of missing people." The official death count was the highest, of any British train wreck since 1952, when 112 persons were killed in a collision north of lion- don. The highest recorded death toll was 227, killed in a -915 crash. Andrew Hickey, 84, Dies of Heart Attack PERU—Andrew H.

Herna, member of a New York Teamsters local, testified Thursday that he became a delegate to the union's 1957 convention when he picked a lucky number out of a box. Herna said he was one of eight delegates from Local 282 who were chosen by lot. He said about 400 of the local's 7,500 members attended the meeting and that 200 sought to bcome convention delegates in the drawing. The witness testified in Federal Court on behalf of 13 rank-and- file Toamslers seeking to bar James R. Hoffa from taking over as Teamsters president. They charge that a majority of the delegates to the Miami Beach, Fla., convention were chosen improperly. Theodore G. Daley, secretary- treasurer of Teamster Local 445 of Yonkers, N.Y., repeated under cross-examination his charge that Hoffa stage-managed the conven- up and down and "telling men when to get up and when t/> sit down." He said he did not know, however, whether hand signals had been used to direct the voting in Hoffa's favor. Herna, a union member for 18 months, testified that his local's decision to select delegates by picking numbers out of a box was made after members voted unanimously to send local President John O'Rourke and Secretary- treasurer Anthony Duffy to the convention. staff, Fort Wayne; . a stepson, Ernest Heimbach, New York City; a brother, Charles Tidrick, Logansport, and a sister, Mrs. William Guslin of Lagro.
