Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, December 28, 1974 It used to be considered quite a rarity, and a sign of good luck, when a person found a four-leaf clover but that's not the case these days in St. Petersburg, Fla., home of the world's only four-leaf clover farm. THEY GAVE CAREFULLY WATERING his pampered crop. Bill Daniels, co-owner and manager of the farm, starts the clover from specially-bred cuttings placed on concrete stands with electrified ultra-violet lamps near each stand. The lamps serve a dual purpose: to constantly bathe the delicate plants in light and to kill harmful insects. AFTER HARVESTING, (left) millions of the four-leaf oddities are sold to greeting card companies and novelty houses. Only the most perfectly-formed clover, with petals measuring a minimum of 1 and inches are selected by Daniels and his employees. Little change in Irish conflict seen for 1975 LONDON (CP) The mindless brutality which has dominated life in Northern Ireland for five years became more vicious in 1974 and spill- ed onto the English mainland. And throughout Britain there was a universal, almost fatalistic conviction that the terror bombing of targets in England would be kept up dur- ing 1975, despite new gov- ernment legislation to combat guerrilla groups. It was the November bomb- ing of two Birmingham pubs, causing 20 deaths and scores of injuries, which spurred the Westminster government to action and refocused British attention on the festering problem of Ulster. Throughout the year, the political situation had been deteriorating steadily. Protes- tant working-class radicals had seized power from their more moderate colleagues and a campaign of in- discriminate sectarian mur- der had gradually eclipsed all efforts to restore peace. The British army in Ulster contended the level of vio- lence was falling and pro- duced statistics to prove it. But they offered little comfort to the people of the North who realize that the murders have created a greater sense of fear in both Protestant and Ror.ian Catholic areas than anything which has happened before. With extremists on each side intent on killing the high- est possible number on the other regardless of political beliefs, people who once feared to walk the streets after dark have become wary of venturing out in daylight. For the people of Ulster, 1974 was the year when ev- eryone became a target. The armed killer, often a free- lance gunman with little loy- alty to any group or ideal, took over from the bomber acting under instructions from either the Protestant Ulster Defence Association or the largely Catholic Irish Republican Ar- my. The killers' chilling role was to even the score after each torture or murder of a Catholic or Protestant. To- wards the end of the year, as many as a dozen people were being assassinated each week. The year began with a frag- ile executive and assembly, whose members accurately reflected the proportions of both religions in Ulster, ad- ministering local affairs from Belfast, while ultimate power rested with the British gov- ernment at Westminster. Brian Faulkner was the chief executive and his mod- erate band of Protestant sup- porters, combined with middle-of-the-road Catholics, seemed to offer some hope for stability. But the British general elec- tion in February provided the first clear sign that more trouble lay ahead. Of 11 Prot- estant MPs elected to West- minster from Ulster, 10 were hardliners. The moderates were unseated and Faulkner's image was fatally tarnished. A few months later, Protes- tant workers, incensed by what they considered West- minster's unseemly haste in trying to promote greater co- operation between the North and the Irish Republic, defied their political leaders and brought Ulster life to a halt with a crippling, all-encom- passing strike. Before they finished, they had forced the resignation of Faulkner and other leading members of the executive and forced the British government to prorogue the assembly in- definitely. A new breed of strong, young, right-wing Protestants now held effective power in the North, determined not to share authority with the Cath- olics and to fight all attempts at strengthening relations with the Republic. The response of the IRA was to switch its attacks to England and to try by its bombing campaign to per- suade the British to withdraw their troops from Ulster and leave them free to pursue whatever methods they might choose to unite the two Ire- lands. The assassination cam- paign, on the other hand, seems designed by both sides simply to deepen the terror in Northern Ireland and enhance their support with the claim that only they can offer any effective protection to individ- uals. Meanwhile, the British gov- ernment has reaffirmed its determination to go ahead with elections to a constituent assembly in 1975 and to give it the task of hammering out a new political formula ac- ceptable to both sides. The task seems monumental and, in view of Ulster's past record, the odds are against success. But the real test of British fortitude may come during the next year if the bombing in England continues. What the IRA, the Protestants and the world will watch is the limit to which British tolerance can be stretched before the pressure becomes over- whelming for the government to abandon Ulster to its fate. PM says he's likely to run in country's next election OTTAWA (CP) Prftne Minister Trudeau says he will likely try for re-election when the country goes to the polls again, presumably in four years. In an interview to be broad- cast on the CTV network Sun- day night. Mr. Trudeau said: "I've got presumably four years I" try and change the society a little bit. "At. the end of four years I'll if I've got any exciting ideas for the next four years. And, if I do, which is very pos- sible, I'll try again. "If I find that I'm wasted and empty, I won't try again. But here again I'm more op- timist, whatever that means." In a wide-ranging interview with broadcasters Bruce Phil-- lips and Carol Taylor, taped Dec. 16. Mr. Trudeau also commented on his marital and private life. Ho wr.s asked if ho agreed vail; his wife, Margaret, that their life together will be hap- pier when he is no longer prime minister. Mrs. Trudeau made the re- marked television interview this fall, shortly after spending 16 days in a Montreal hospital undergoing treatment for emotional stress. "Well, I realize something, 1 think. It had nothing to do with my j.ob, nothing only to do with my job or with my wife. I realize what I hope most men realize after they've been married a little while, that their wives have problems in assuming this new life of being married.
