TORONTO (JTA) — A private
investigator who said he had been
hired as a detective by the Cana-
dian Jewish Congress told a court
here, trying Canadian National
Socialist leader John Beattie and
two other men for conspiracy, that
he had been the chauffeur for a
car used by Beattie and his co-
horts for placing swastika placards
on the homes of prominent Jews
in Toronto.
The witness, sonn Charles Ger-
rity, testified he had infiltrated
Beattie's organization on behalf of
the CJC, and said he had reported
the swastika excursion to the
police. The incident, he said, hap-

coincide with a march staged in
Chicago by George Rockwell,
leader of the American Nazi Party.
Gerrity testified that Beattie

had a list of 12 homes of pre-
sumed Jews, where he was to
hang the swastika-emblazoned
plaques. He was arrested after
the fourth such action in front
of the home of Rabbi Abraham
L. Feinberg.

Arrested and on trial with him
are Robert .1: Wood, who is now
serving an eight-month prison sen-
tence on another charge; and John
On Beattie's list, said Gerrity,
were the then mayor of Toronto,
Philip Givens, and leaders of the
Canadian Jewish Congress.
