South St. Paul, Minn., May 13 —Picket lines of the striking CIO packinghouse workers held firm here today against efforts by police and sheriff's officers to open them.
The pickets used their fists to drive back the 17 officers who tried to go through lines blocking the Swift plant entrance. The officers carried guns but did not use them. Several officers were struck and two were knocked down, but none was badly hurt.
Before the attempt was made Sheriff Norman Dieter used a loud speaker system to read to the pickets a court order issued yesterday. The order prohibits mass picketing and direct pickets not to block streets. The strike started nation-wide March 16. The union asked a 29 cents per hour wage Increase.
Chief of Police Louis Fuller said
Earlier in the day three nonstriking packinghouse workers were attacked by eight men they did not know about three blocks fiom the Swift picket line. One suffered a possible concussion. A man identified as a Swift foreman was arrested when police found him with a piece of pipe under his coat.
Until yesterday, when pickets closed their lines tight, the Armour and Swift plants had run for several weeks on a small scale. Administrative employes and other workers who chose to cross the picket lines did the work.
Governor Luther W. Youngdahl has said he cannot intervene in the dispute. Yesterday he told Sheriff Dieter that if he could not enforce the law in South St. Paul he should step out. The governor could then name another sheriff. ♦ ,
