Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 13, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, August 13, 1971 Belfast: city of fear BELFAST Uleutei-i An a r.iosplicrc1 of terror hangs ove Llelfast, as appallingly real as Ihe oily black smoke from gaso- line toil-As in Ilio slrects. The NortlicM-n Irish capital Ls nl war with itself. Law ar.d rrtler have collapsed. Murder robbery, looling and arson go unchecked. Large numbers of the Roman Catholic a third of the city's 500.000 people themselves nt odds wilh the law and nol bound by its dictates. For all their armored cars and soplu'slicated weapons, the 13.000 British peacekeeping troops can only try to suppress the worst of the violence. Ordi- nary lawlessness is beyond their scope. In staunch rcpublic-an-Catholic (districts such as Hie Unrer j Falls area, Hie army is hated. Small palrols dare not venture out at night into the narrow back streets. The Protestant police force appears dispirited and disinc- lined lo play much of a role Ji i quelling disorder. Us main function is to palrol Prolestan there its authority seems and to conduct the routine business of filing formal charges against I suspects rounded up by the i army. Disarmed following the trou- bles of 1969, the police carry no weapons. But the troublemak- ers, many of them members of the outlawed Irish Republican Army, are equipped with deadly arsenals of pistols, rifles, gren- ades and other arms. Agents lackle new o sold at drug CASPER. Wyo. (AP> Those who use it call it "Wyo- ming green." but lo police and narcotic agents it may be a new problem drug of seem- ingly unlimited supply.

Sheriff James Meeks of Yel- lowslone County said a bota- nist told him it is possible lo gel a marijuana reaction from, a non-marijuana plant. Meeks said he sent a sam- ple In San Francisco for anal- ysis, but hasn't received a rc- poii ycl. NEw'nni'G MECCA: If results arc positive, il means the mountains around Casper and elsewhtre in Mon- tana could become a drug mecca. Bul if Ihe results arc nega- tive, Meeks said Ihe eonse- cocld be even more startling. He said Ihe "infallible" field for mniijuana, accepted by the courts, no longer will apply. And il is possible the plant could lurn out lo lie a new type of hallucinogenic. "The effect of an entirely new drug cannot be mea- he said.

The survey applies to 49 airports, compared to 46 last j-ear. One of Hie army's jobs is io try to tear down Hie barricades which keep springing up all over the C a L li o 1 i c gheltoes. These obstacles get more and more formidable, most of them composed of heaps of junk piled over the wreckage of hijacked trucks ;ind buses. Everywhere around the trou- ble areas these burned and bal- tered vehicles are to be seen, some si.Ltuig forlornly on de- flated Urcs. or lying on their backs. Trucks, buses and cars art hijacked freely, with little fear of retribution. A traffic man mil lamely wave on truck packed with yelling teen- agers who have plainly taken It over by force. Property owners threatened with bomb r.tfacks say it is im- possible l.o get police or military protection. A round the city Protestants and Catholics are being forced from their homes by neighbors of the other reli- gion. POLICE JUST SHRUG Such an incident reported to a policeman would merely make him shrug in resignation. Vlsitng reporters and othci civilian outsiders find t h c m- selves checked by bands of youths who seem to roam the streets all night. If they tell you to go. it is wise lo leave. The disappearance of a stranger there would probably never be solved. Violence vliich a week or month ago would have made big headlines is often imreported. A gasoline bomb flaring near an army vehicle on a busy street draws only a brief stare from I passcrsby before they hurry on. f Fnr Ihousands of ordinary, taw-abiding citizens, the conflict has reduced life lo misery. They sil up night ;iFler night, huddled in Iheir homes, listening lo Ihc bullets whine through the streets outside. One of lite innocent victims is an alfracUve secrelary who came home from work one evening to find three IRA gun- men waiting in her apartment. The girl was a Catholic, and her home was at the edge of the Lower Falls district, a prime stronghold of TRA guerrillas shooting u out with the British army. "They told me to get out, that they were taking Lire flat over tor said the 24- year-old Brunette, who asked thai her name not be used. "I came away wilh the clothes T stood up in.
