I backed up two or three steps. “I shot him again in the head to put him out of his misery.” Sick Sanitation Workers Picket in New York ly the Associated Pross NEW YORK. Oct. 17,—Nearly 2,000 city sanitation workers re ported sick today, then picketed health department offices, chant ing “five days, 40 hours.” A State law forbids strikes by public employes. James Griesi, president of Local 333, CIO-United Public Workers, said the men were protesting a 48-hour work week with no over time. But James Dugan, secretary of the AFL Joint Board of Sanita tion Locals, said the demonstra tion was a "political venture, pos sibly touched off as a feeble dramatic protest stemming from the conviction the other day of 11 Red leaders.” Health Department officials made no immediate comment. The pickets marched in double lines all around a downtown building of the Health Depart ment. Many carried placards with such messages as "sanitation men are sick of long hours and low wages.” Mr. Griesi said 5,600 of the sanitation department’s 9,800 workers are members of Local 333. It was not immediately deter mined how many were at work today. $2,760 in Coat Worries Man Badly Hurt in Crash By the Associated Press PETALUMA, Calif., Oct. 17.—Al though Giuseppi Merga, 70, was seriously injured, he kept insisting that some one go find the part of his coat that was missing.

Laurence Louis Sharkey, 51, general secretary of the Austra lian Communist Party, was con victed by a Jury In Central Crimi nal Court last June of having uttered seditious words. The sen tence he received today is the maximum for such an offense. In passing sentence Judge Fran cis A. Dwyer said: “Sedition, It has been said, is a crime against society allied to that of treason 4 and it frequently precedes treason by a short interval. "The lamentable fact is that you, Sharkey, occupy a position in which you and others asso ciated with you exercise an evil and disproportionate influence over the life of this country.” The crown charged that Shar key uttered the seditious words in a newspaper interview last March 4. The crown quoted him as saying: "If Soviet forces in pursuit-of aggressors enter Australia, Aus tralian workers would welcome the Soviet forces pursuing ag gressors as the workers welcomed them throughout Europe when the Red troops liberated the peo ple from the power of the Nazis.” At the time the statement was made Communist leaders in many other countries were saying ex actly the same thing.
