Original Caption:

Chicago -- Braving bullets from a trapped safe-blowing gang, policeman Arthur Olsen trades shots with desperadoes as he seeks flimsy shelter behind a car. Olson injured his face when one of the gunmen fired through a plate glass of the currency exchange when he was the first to investigate the call. Olsen immediately called for re-enforcements for the battle, which lasted nearly an hour, in which two yeggs were slain, two captured, one believed to have escaped, and three policemen injured.

Cadillac Salesmen Go On Strike.

New York -- A group of smartly dressed Cadillac salesmen are shown picketing a Cadillac salesroom at 57th and Broadway today in one of New York's strangest strikes. Tthe strikers delivered an angry verbal blast against the Cadillac Division General Managers for allegedly circulating reports that some of them make as much as $40,000 a year. The strikers' major complaints concern such grievances as no fixed hours, no holidays, no paid vacations, no welfare benefits and no pension plans. (1955)
