  • Description

    STUDENT DEMONSTRATORS TORE DOWN DECORATIONS AND HURLED ORANGES AND APPLES DURING PROTESTS WHICH BROKE OUT AT THE OPENING OF AN INTERNATIONAL "GREEN WEEK" AGRICULTURAL EXHIBITION IN WEST BERLIN TODAY (FRIDAY). THE DEMONSTRATORS PELTED GREEK AND SPANISH REPRESENTATIVES AT THE EXHIBITION AND STORMED THEIR STANDS. THE INCIDENT OCCURRED SHORTLY AFTER THE OPENING OF THE SHOW BY THE WEST GERMAN PRESIDENT, HEINRICH LUEBKE.

    ACCOMPANYING PRESIDENT LUEBKE DURING HIS TOUR OF THE EXHIBITION WAS THE GOVERNING MAYOR OF WEST BERLIN, KLAUS SCHUETZ.

    POLICE HAD ANTICIPATED TROUBLE AT BOTH THE GREEK AND SPANISH STANDS AT THE SHOW AND WERE STANDING BY WHEN THE SCUFFLES BROKE OUT. THE ATTACK SPREAD TO THE IRANIAN STAND.

    ABOUT 200 DEMONSTRATORS, INCLUDING GREEK AND SPANISH STUDENTS, CLASHED HEAVILY WITH THE POLICE AS THEY CROWDED THE DISPLAY STANDS.

    THE POLICE, SWINGING TRUNCHEONS, FINALLY CLEARED THE STUDENTS FROM THE EXHIBITION HALL AFTER CHASING THEM FROM ONE STAND TO ANOTHER.

    THIRTY-NINE STUDENTS WERE DETAINED.
