Description

John Ward ices down his fractured ankle while giving his account of the UFE strike to the Seafarers Log:
"When the first upsurge ended, I found myself lying on my stomach in the middle of the group. I was about four men from the door of the Exchange. In the noise and turmoil I couldn't hear anyone yell at me, and I'm sure no attempt was made to do so. The first feeling of what was going on came when I felt someone beating me about the back and legs. Some cop rapped a tattoo on my back and I felt a sharp stab when his stick cracked against my ankle bone. I don't think I could have risen then if I'd wanted to. Finally four cops grabbed me and dragged me to the wagon."
