PKEMlEIl Uy IIAIIOLD MOltlllSON Cunadinn Press Staff Writer Jailing terrorists without trial in Northern Ireland can be seen as an act of political desperation. It may temporarily quiet the roaring flames of war, although it may deepen and harden the hatred between warring factions. It is unlikely that the minority [Ionian Catholics of Ulster will easily forgive Prime Minister Brian Faulkner for introducing a weapon to be used ostensibly against all militants, mal designed primarily lo dciil with Catholic cxlremisis. Realizing the political risks, Faulkner naturally hesitated to revive internment, which had been used during 195M2 without Jong-term gains. And the longer he hesitated, the more evident it became that the Protestant regime was grasping the internment weapon only because nothing else seemed to work lo cool the exploding Ulster crisis. LAST-GRASP EFFORT Faulkner is seen as making a lasl desperate throw of Die last liliciil dice. His own future may bo at slake unless in the lime won by internment his regime comes up with a proposal that may finally bring peace lo the long-troubled six counties. So far nothing acceptable is in sight. The Labor party idea of an all-Irish council in which the representatives of Dublin, Belfast and London could make proposals without, legislative power may have some appeal flmong Irish nalionalisls but not among Protestant loyalists. Any attempt to erode the Ihorily of Stormunt, the Ulster legislature, is interpreted by suspicions prolestant extremists as yielding to the cunning moves of the nationalists. The nationalists would like nothing belter than to see Stor-mont's power completely taken over by the parliament in London, which might finally chuck the whole thing over lo Dublin jusl to rid itself of Ihe mess. IRA (JAINS Faulkner's efforts lo promole Catholic-Pi otestant community relations also have failed, throw n'illi altcniiits ;il inlcfiraletl housing and social programs. Tlic outlawed Irish Republican Army has, in fact, gained ground, as acknowledged by Lt.-Gen. Sir Harry Tuzo, chief of Ihe British forces in Ulster. Tuzo estimates that of the Catholics in Ulster, about one-half are sympathetic to the IRA cause and perhaps 69.DW or more are arlively involved in some form at IRA planning and operations. Locking up the known leaders may fragment IRA Ulster warfare and reduce (ircssurt'i on the reinforced British forces in the six counties. But (he IRA headquarters is in Dublin and Ihe Iiish border is easy to cross. New leaders can bp. trained to replace the old ones. Co-operation from the Irish Republic's Prime Minister Jack Lynch might make internment in the North more than a temporary respite. Bui so powerful is the IRA in the South that Lynch must be careful how he speaks, lo prevent his own Through war and troubled peace, the IRA has existed tor more than a half-century. It will lake more than internment lo eradicate ils hold on the anguished island. killed MAYERTHORPE fCP) -Gary Claude Collins, age 16 months, of Eonnyille died after being run over by a truck on a farm near this community, 5S miles northwest of Edmonton. for 9 COOKOUT!
