Trading in other commodi- ties was generally light, with prices fluctuating fractionally. Export wheat clearances Thursday Included bush- els to China, to Russia, to Japan and to Hong Kong.

But his achievement was good enough 1o take second place in a banana-eating contesl at Ryer- son Polylechnicol Institute's two-day carnival. Police pelted with manure TORONTO (OP) A radio reporter testified Friday that police trying to control a dem- onstration last Oct. 25 at the Ontario Science Centre were pelted with burning candles, rocks, sticks, bricks and horse manure. Charles Doering of Toronto radio station CFRB was giving evidence at a provincial inquiry into the demonstration, which led to a dozen injuries and 20 arrests following a confronta- tion between Metropolitan To- ronto mounted police and per- sons protesting the Toronto visit of Soviet Premier Alexei Kosy- gln. Mr. Doering told Judge An- thony Vannini, inquiry commis- sioner, that he walked through die police lines and into the crowd of several thousand shortly after several officers on horseback rode in with riding crops drawn. He said he saw one officer's horse hit by a chunk.of manure, a brick landed in front of him, and sticks, stones and candles were being hurled by some demonstrators. One mounted officer, seeing a middle-aged woman with her arm raised in the air, "dadnd across in front of me" and hit her twice with his four-foot-long riding crop, said Mr. Doering. The woman went down, he said, and was helped away from the scene a few minutes later by two men. The horseman then rode into the middle of a stack of boxes where two young girls were selling candles with plastic holders to the demonstrators. POLICE LINE BULGED The inquiry was told earlier (his week that the Metropolitan Toronto police mounted unit was called in when e bulge de- veloped in Uie police line across the street from the science centre, where Mr. Kosygin was addressing a Canadian Manu- facturers' Association banquet. Demonstrators had pushed po- lice lines 10 to 15 feet out from the curb when the horsemen ar- rived. Estimates from various witnesses of the number of horsemen Involved in the foray into the crowd have ranged be- tween five and 12. Judge Vannini is hearing evi- dence to establish the sequence of events leading up to the foray as well as on the conduct of police and the demonstrators. About 10 reporters and photog- raphers were among the 457 witnesses subpoenaed to testify at the inquiry, expected to last at least three weeks. Mr. Doering said he was In- side a cafeteria at the science centre where policemen were resting on a supper break when a police sergeant ran in and I shouted: "Everybody out. They're breaking through." He said he hurried across the street and crossed through po- lice lines. "There was a M of booing hissing and choruses of 'Shame.' When I got into the crowd I noticed a lot of things being thrown. Had the horses not moved in, they (the police) would have had a full-scale riot on their hands." The inquiry continues. New Nixon aide WASHINGTON (AP) Presi- dent Nixon announced here the resignation of Secretary Maurice Stsns, and named as his successor Peter G. Peterson, the current Inter- national economic policy ad- viser. LAND BANK FEES REGINA (CP) Agricul- ture Minister Jack Messer said here the rental fees for land under control of the pro- posed land bank will range from 12.50 to an acre. Surcharge never used on feed WINNIPEG (CP) Gordon Harrold, chairmen of the Ca- nadian Wheat Board's pro- ducer advisory committee, said here Uie board has never ap- plied a surcharge on sale of prairie feed grains to eastern Canada. He was commenting on pub- lished reports that quoted Al- bert A11 a i n e, president of L'Union des Catholic Cultiva- teurs, as saying the board inv poses a 27-cent surcharge on each bushel of prairie cereal grain bought in QuebecV. Mr. Harold, who Is also president of Alberta Wheat Pool, said tie reported state- ment obviously was the resull of a misunderstanding of wheat board selling procedures. There had never been such a surcharge. "In fact the federal govern- ment, under its freight rate as- sistance program, now sub- sidizes eastern shippers vir- tually for the full cost of mov- ing western feed grains from Thunder Bay to eastern Can- ada." Mr. Harold, hi a statement, said records show the wheat board has kept prices of west- ern grains fully competitive In eastern markets.
