News in Brief: Strike Halts Japanese Railroads. Strikes fomented to protest anti-communist laws pending before the Japanese Diet virtually cripple all railroads leading into Tokyo. Violence breaks out as red-led strikers clash with police. Various shots of empty railroad tracks with what looks like wire strung across them (as if a wire fence would stop a train?). Police disperse students, who seem to be protesting nonviolently - though one of them has his head bandaged and covered with blood. Cold War tension.
