Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 10, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 _ IFTH8RIDGS HERAID Monday, August 10, 1970 This May Be "Week Of Destiny9 For Northern Ireland BELFAST (API Prime Minister James Chichcster- Clark cm shorl a vacation in Spain Sunday and headed home to Northern Ireland to face a mounting Protestant campaign to overthrow him. Some are saying this will be week of destiny" for Northern Ireland. Tight security was imposed and the government refused to give any details on his arrival for fear'of demonstrations. After lie arrived here, the prime minister brushed aside reporters who asked if he in- tended to resign because of the campaign against him. "We will wait and see what he said. Ciiichesler-Clark. a retired British army major, is under pressure from London to push Uirough reforms in voting, hous- ing and jobs to meet Roman i CaMiolic complaints. He faces a showdown on two fronts. Protestant-based Unionist party associations accuse him ,if i" '-i f- i'nil are demanding he give an ex- pianation for imposing a six- months ban on parados on the eve of the Protestant Orange- men's big celebrations. I'l.AN KAiXIKS The major Orange organiza- tions said they would bow to the ban on marching but still planned rallies. Police and army security officials said there still was danger of some incident setting off rioting. A year ago the celebrations flared into rioting, shooting and bombings that swept all North- ern Ireland, with a heavy toll of deaths and property damage. Chichester-Clark holds office with only a five-vote majority in the Northern Ireland Parlia- ment. There is open talk Uiat he cannot hang on and tliat the British government will have to take over administration of the six northern counties that com- prise Ulster. The anger of the Unionist party rank-and-filc has been heightened by almost continu- ous rioting for two weeks in Roman Catholic districts of Bel- fast and Londonderry and bomb blasts against British installa- tions. Hit-and-run raiders blew up a British customs post on the bor- der with the Irish republic early Sunday and struck at four other" targets in Belfast, the provincial capital. No one was hurt in the explo- sions. DEMAND SEIZURES j Protestant militants, including j Rev. Ian Paisley, are demand- ing the government make use of the Special Powers Acts, giving the government the right to seize and hold anyone without trial. The government called up men of the Ulster1 Defence Regiment, a civilian force under British army control, to relieve British troops guarding key in- stallations such as bridges and electricity stations. The regular troops will then be able to do more patrolling. British Prime Minister Heath rushed crack troops of the Black Watch from England to beef up British security forces. The flashpoint centre is Lon- donderry, Ulster's second larg- est city. Now predominantly Catholic, the city still is revered as a slu-ine by Protestants who claimed one of their big- gest victories there in 1089 under a Dutchman. Tile Orange Apprentice Boys traditionally celebrate (he siege in which the city was held King William of Orange against the Catholic Irish forces of James II. Bermuletle Gels Rich In Jail LONDON (Reuters) The tinkle of distant casli registers offers some consolation for Ber- nadette Devlin as she sews shirts in a Northern Ireland prison. Her book Tlie Price of my Soul has sold more than lOO.OMl copies in Britain and Ireland and substantial royalties are pil- ing up in Canada, the United States, Sweden, Germany and France. The 23-year-old member of Parliament for mid-Ulster, sent- enced to six months for her part in Northern Ireland riots, proba- bly will be released from Ar- magh Prison in October, time off for good behavior. She is making notes for an- other hook, based on her prison experiences. Meanwhile, she will cam a few pounds for her sewing and collect back pay from her annual salary of as an MP. FIND BIG NUGGET MOSCOW (AP) A gold nugget weighing 21.34 pounds and valued at has been found by a bulldozer operator at the Kolyma gold mine on the Soviet eastern coast, Tass news agency reports. SI OTTAWA (CP) The prices and incomes commission an- nounced today that it will re- view prices for automotive products, specialty steels, coal, certain name-brand tires and footwear. The automotive products study will include a review of prices for models produced by all major Canadian motor vehicle manufacturers. A commission spokesman had said Thursday that a study was planned of the three-per-cent es- timated price increase already announced by Ford Motor Co. of Canada Ltd. Today's statement said: "Al- though none of the Canadian motor vehicle producers has yet announced firm prices for 1971 models, preliminary contacts have already been made with some of the companies and meetings are scheduled for next week." Tile commission said it wi! not review provisional billinj prices, which will be supersedec by firm prices when the new models are available for sale. It said it is reviewing price and cost changes in the coal in dustry because prices of domes He and imported coal have been increasing. Its study of brand-name tires will concentrate on tires sold bj major retailers of automotive products selling tires under their own brand names. The commission said prices of leather footwear, including chil- dren's footwear, have been in- creased and the commission in- tends to review the reasons for the increase. Table Rife Red Brand STANDING RIB ROAST The King of Roasts Large Coal Deposits In Montana EAST GLACIER, Mont. (AP) professor of mineral sci- ence and technology told rep- resentatives of the Pacific Northwest River Basins Com- mission that the largest coal deposit on earth lies in the re- gion of eastern Montana, north- western Wyoming and western North Dakota. Dr. Sid Froff of Montana Tech at Butte said more than a trillion tons of coal lie be- neath areas in those three states. Groff said the Montana po- tential, smallest of the three states, was 300 billion tons. Montana, however, leads the nation in economically minable coal, he added. He places the state's near- j surface coal reserves at 18 bil-1 lion tons. Groff said the year 2020 could see the end of present day sources of power such as coal. He said Montana has only 50 years to use its vast coal de- posits before advanced tech- nology renders them obsolete.
