Continued From Page One Soviet zone marks. This was the original demand of the men when they walked out. A check with all official sources I in West Berlin showed about 17 strike demonstrators and 15 Soviet sector police and strikebreakers had been hospitalized with serious wounds or injuries. All official sources said no deaths had been reported since the strike began Saturday. Scores of persons were given first aid during the continuing series of fights with clubs, fists. rocks and finally, pistols and car-s bines of eastern police. Whether 'he low casualty total was da to bad aim on the part of the police, or whether the firing was mostly lor warning, was not completely clear. All elevated lines in West Berlin formerly patronized by at least 500.000 passengers daily were paralyzed The Reichsbahn's campaign to resume East-West traffic inside the city was futile thus far. although railway workers had been recruited from other cities of the Soviet zone to break the strike. Cargo trucks were converted to buses, with the West Berlin government's permission to ease the transport problem. But Western municipal officials asked the public to boycott the rlevatcd railway, pending a settlement of the strike. Interzonal trains from Western Germany were getting back on schedule, after being held up early in the strike. They loaded and unloaded on the city's outskirts, and did not use the regular terminals in the center of Berlin. Another incident in which Russian soldiers were stoned by a strike mob occurred yesterday. A truck carrying 30 men in Soviet uniforms was bombarded with rocks when it halted near the Am-zoo station in the British sector. British sector police protected them as the truck departed.
