Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 28, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, February 28, 197S Ireland's bloody saga takes bizarre twist MRS. MCALISKY By KEVIN DOYLE LONDON (CP) In the long chronicle of atrocities which have plagued Northern Ireland since 1969, few events are more chilling than the latest bizarre twist in the bloody saga. The new conflict pits a handful of Roman Catholics against Catholics, republicans against republicans and in the space of little more than a week it has left two men murdered and more than 20 wounded, beaten or with boles drilled into their kneecaps as punishment. The brutal campaign started last Dec. 8 with a little-publicized split in the Of- ficial wing of the outlawed Irish Republican Army. The Officials form the Marxist and more moderate wing of the IRA and they have been observing a truce with the British army for nearly three years, a move now being emulated in half-hearted fashion by the Provisional, or extreme, wing of the movement. And the most prominent fig- ure to emerge in the present conflict is Bernadette Devlin, the fiery young former member of the British Parlia- ment who was one of the best- known leaders of the anti- British movement at the height of the Northern Ireland troubles two years ago. She later retired into ob- scurity to have a baby and Treaty could remove U.S. threat to cut Alberta oil shipments By HOWARD COLLINS OTTAWA (CP) Talks re- sume in Washington next week on a treaty that could remove one possible roadblock in the way of a northern gas pipeline and forestall threats in the United States to cut oil shipments from Alberta to the eastern provinces.

The treaty, first proposed by Prime Minister Trudeau more than a year-ago, is aim- ed at protecting from interruption shipments of oil and natural gas through Canada and the U.S. Most of the oil supplies for Eastern Canada pass through pipelines crossing U.S. territory. U.S. negotiators also are seeking agreement to prevent arbitrary imposition of export charges or fees on any of its Alaskan oil or gas passing through Canada. Energy department of- ficials hope such a treaty will end talk of retaliation against Canada for restricting petroleum exports to the U.S. A spokesman for Canadian Arctic Gas Ltd. feels an agreement will "help avoid delay" in consideration of its application to build a pipeline HAMMOND ORGANS HEINTZMAN PIANOS Exclusive Dealers Credit Plan Available THE PIANO CENTRE 313-7lh Street So. 328-2163 OpenThurs. til 9 p.m. to move Alaskan and Mack- enzie Delta gas to markets in the south. The treaty gained new im- portance in recent months, with calls from some U.S. congressmen for retaliation against Canada for restricting energy exports to the U.S. and for raising prices. Ottawa imposed an export tax of a barrel on shipments to the U.S. last spring, bringing the crude oil price to between and and last fall announced ex- ports will diminish gradually over the next seven years because of declining domestic oil reserves. Natural gas prices also were increased, to a thou- sand cubic feet from 60 cents. Last week, an official of the U.S. state department said Canada would risk retaliation if it tried similar reductions in exports of natural gas, currently totalling one trillion cubic feet a year or 45 per cent of domestic production. The state department later said threats of retaliation were not government policy.

But Bcrnadette now is back in the public eye, with all her fierce eloquence, as a founder of the Irish Republican Socialist Party The breakaway IRSP is steeped in Marxist philosophy with a strong streak of what amounts to a kind of romantic nationalism common to all leftwing republican movements. The IRSP launched a cam- paign at the beginning of the year to encourage defections to their organization from the Officials. The Officials, in turn, responded by publicly describing the IRSP as a band of sectarian fanatics whose aim was to join the Provisionals in a campaign of violence against the British troops. The new organization denied this and its recruit- ment drive gained momentum under Mrs others. Finally, McAlisky and last week, the inevitable happened. Hugh Ferguson, an IRSP branch chairman in Belfast was murdered on the street out- side his home. The Officials, predictably, denied respon- sibility. Security forces were unconvinced. IRSP leaders said the Of- ficials had indisputably killed Ferguson. But they added there would be no reprisals against the IRA. Within days, however, another IRSP member, Sean Fox, was murdered with a bullet through the back of his head and reports proliferated of the Officials' brutal in- timidation and torture of peo- ple they suspected were sym- pathetic with the aims of the breakaway group. The reaction of a spokesman for the Official IRA in Belfast?

Me. Arctic Gas, a consortium cf about 25 oil and gas com- panies planning a gas pipeline from the Mackenzie Delta, said the firm would welcome a treaty. The pipeline, for which the company now is seeking con- struction approval from regu- latory agencies in both coun- tries, would carry Delta gas to Canadian markets and Alaskan gas to the United States. Session set TORONTO (CP) The fifth session of the 29th Ontario legislature will begin March 11, Premier William Davis says.

Family faces deportation Antonio Manuel Diaz, 30, holds his son Christian, 2, while his wife Norma holds twins Sheyle and Myrne in Toronto. The family entered Canada in August as visitors and were permitted to stay one year after Norma became ill and later gave birth to the twins. Immigration authorities have now withdrawn the family's permit and they face deportation to their native Argentina. Price hike less than asked OTTAWA (CP) Energy Minister Donald Macdonald said Thursday an increase of 2.2 cents a gallon in the whole- sale price for heating fuel, gasoline and diesel fuel is less than the amount requested by Imperial Oil Ltd. last fall. The minister said the price increase, announced by the company Thursday, appeared to be within the range ex- pected by the government, but officials of his department will still check company es- timates of costs. The increase came less than a week after the government lifted a voluntary restraint on price increases, saying the companies would be allowed to raise prices to cover higher refining and marketing costs incurred since September, 1973. Industry sources said in De- cember that in reply to a ques- tionnaire from the government, the oil com- panies requested a price increase of between a half- cent and a cent a gallon. However, Mr. Macdonald said Thursday "I am advised that the Imperial increase is within the amount they sought last fall." The lower figure quoted by the industry might have been an average of all company requests. When he announced an end to restraints, the minister said the companies would be allowed to recover higher costs only. If there was an abuse of the system, restraints would be brought back. Announcement of the increase drew a blast of criticism from T. C. Douglas, the New Democrat energy critic in the Commons, who said companies should be made to apply for permission 'to increase prices and prove they are warranted. He asked how the com- panies could claim higher costs as a reason for price increases when they recorded high profits last year. "Imperial's profits went up about 79 per cent." Mr. Macdonald said he still believes .the higher price for gasoline may not be passed on to retail customers. "In view of the competition at the gas pumps, gas wars in some areas, it will be inter- esting to see if Imperial can get the additional 2.2 cents at the retail he said. The higher wholesale price went into effect Thursday in eight of the provinces. In both British Columbia and Nova Scotia, the companies must seek permission from provin- cial regulatory agencies to increases prices. Red Deer newspaper continues RED DEER (CP) Gordon Grierson, publisher of the Red Deer Advocate, says the British company which owns his newspaper "hopes and expects to get around" proposed federal tax changes affecting foreign owned publications. The Advocate and three weekly newspapers in British Columbia at Abbotsford, Chilliwack and Mission are owned by the Liverpool Post and Echo in Britain. Mr. Grierson said in an interview The Advocate ex- pects to continue to publish without any problems if the tax legislation is passed. He did not elaborate. "We won't be changing The Advocate." The legislation, scheduled to be introduced in the House of Commons within a few weeks, would eliminate sec- tions of the Income Tax Act which now permit advertisers to claim tax deductions for the cost of their advertising in foreign owned publications.
