The fourth target was a paint store, which was extensively damaged. The first bomb was left in the doorway of the Belfast Sav- ings Bank on King Street, a busy shopping and office tho- roughfare a block from Iho centre of the city. The bank- manager spotted the bag and raised an alarm. Police quickly cbarctl hundreds of shoppers and olfice workers from the street. The bomb exploded within 10 min- utes, wrecking the bank build- ing. It blew out windows over a wide area but no one was hurt because of t'ne quick clearing of the street. A second bomb wrecked the Northern Ireland headquarters of Rank-Xerox, the British off- wioot. of (lie American Xerox- copying ar.d office equipment firm. Police said two armed men broke into the building at 9 a.m. and planted a bomb, but the staff cleared the building quickly and no one was injured. There was sporadic shooting during the night between British troops and guerrilla gunmen. MARINES SHOOT 2 Marines shot and captured two men who they said were trying to raid a shirt factory at Ugcmiel, west of Belfast. Une was reported critically wounded. Three, other men es- caped in a ear Dial, later was found abandoned in downtown Belfast. Four thousand Catholics staged another illegal but peaceful march Sunday lo de- mand immediate withdrawal of British troops From lister, alxj- lit.ion of the Norlhein Ireland Parliament and a halt to the jailing of guerrilla suspects without trial. IVoops and police did not in- terfere with the march in Eruii.v killen, a lakeside resort town 65 miles southwest of Belfast, and the Catholics made it a short one. Then they held a rally at which speakers rejected a com- promise that reports from Lon- don say the British government is considering. It would include g Catholic as deputy prime min- ister of Northern Ireland and a qucta of Catholics in the Ulster cabinet. Kevin Agncw. of the Catholic-based Civil Rights Association, said promi- nent Catholic politicians would shun a position in the Ulster cabinet. The rally originally was for the centre of En- niskillen, but the marchers moved back to a housing pro- in another part of town after eucyiuilering barricades thrown up by British troops. It was the second peaceful demonstration in as many Sun- days after the Jan. 30 "Bloody Sunday" march in Londonderry in which British paratroops killed 13 civilians. In Dublin, capital of the Irish Republic, persons flocked i to a rally featuring Irish Repub- i lican Army leaders Joe Cahil] and Sean MacStiofan. That rally also was peaceful. Hours before the Eruiiskillen rally, a hooded body of a young man shot through the head was found in the village of Clones, 30 miles to the southwest.

An iirmcd forces spokesman said eight military aircraft from Edmonton and Yellow- knife and two civilian aircraft from Fort McMurray and Fort Chipewyan searched the area between Edmonton and Fort Cbipewyan Sunday without success.

And doctors, police nnd others working in the drug rehabilita- tion field say that within the last four years the illegal im- portation and sale of the highly addictive narcotic has devel- oped into one of the largest in- dustries in the province and is raising the threat of a masive increase in crime within the next two or three years. Dr. Conrad J. Schwarz of the University of B.C., chairman of the drug rehabilitation commit- tee of the B.C. Medical Associa- tion, said in a recent interview it is impossible to provide pre- cise figures on the numbers of users and the gross revenue of the illegal industry in the prov- ince. 'All we know is that growlh in the use of heroin has been ex- plosive in the past four he said. Two years ago, the sale of heroin in B.C. was largely con- fined to a small section of the Skid Road area of Vancouver's east end. The addict who wanted to break the habit could get away from other users by leaving the city. Police say these days are over. Heroin now can be bought anywhere in the province. ARRESTED 5C1 In 1970, the latest year for which complete figures are available, police reported 561 arrests throughout tfie province for heroin offences, but police say the figure doesn't reflect what is really happening. The B.C. Medical Association reported recently that there were between and drug users in the province, and Vancouver city police estimate the number of heroin users in the Greater Vancouver area is at least Police believe B.C.'s flourish- ing heroin industry is controlled by three Vancouver syndicates with connections in eastern Can- ada and Asia. How big in the industry? Po- lice suggest a turnover of million annually would be a fairly conservative figure. In comparison, the lota! worth of all fish caught in B.C. in 1970, o record year for the industry, was 5123 million. The gross an- nual revenue of the B.C. Tele- phone Company is about million and the total electricity sales of British Columbia Hydro and Power Authority amount to about S192 million a year. Doctors, police and social workers generally agree that the majority of heroin users in the province are slill on a com- paratively low daily intake.But they are alarmed by what may happen within the next two or three years as these users in- crease (heir intake and turn to crime to meet the prohihitively- cxpensive cost of feeding the craving. They predict a massive In- crease in crime with a resultant sharp rise, in taxes to meet the twin needs of increased law en- forcement and addiction treat- ment programs.
