Background: Four highly salaried electrical firm executives surrendered on Feb 13 to US Marshal William O'Brien at the Federal Building in Philadelphia. They were fingerprinted and then taken by car to gaol at Norristown, Pennsylvania.
The four executives: William S. Ginn, 45, who received 135,000 dollars a year as General Electric Vice-President; Ginn is seen handcuffed to Lewis J. Burger, 48-year-old General Electric Division Manager; also handcuffed together were Edward R. Jung, 58-year-old Vice-President of Clark Controller Co., and George E. Burens, another General Electric Vice-President.
All four men received 30-day prison terms for fixing prices and rigging bids, in America's biggest federal anti-trust case. At Norristown gaol, the four will join two Westinghouse executives who started their 30-day terms on Feb 10.
