    Pictured being removed from court at 0:12 is Montgomery Ward chairman Sewell Avery.

    "Attorney General Biddle" is Francis Biddle.

    The man at 0:41 is Under Secretary of Commerce, Wayne C. Taylor.

    The man pictured at 0:50 is Clement D Ryan, President of Montgomery Ward. (He was to die just two years later, in the Bryce Canyon air disaster).
