The hope for the major- ity is that some kind of peace will descend on a land ravaged by nearly four years of death and destruction. Their horror is that the long quest for a truce between feud- ing Protestants and Roman Catholics will collapse in a new burst of sectarian killing and counter-killing. Prospects as seai through London's eyes appear finely poised. Capitol picketer marks birthday SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) Robert Simpson celebrated his 93rd birthday and his 234th arrest Sunday. The man, known as Mister Simpson, has been picketing the state capitol for a decade over a variety of causes. He was arrested under an anti- picketing law passed several years ago in an effort to keep him away. When officers came to ar- rest the crusty, white-haired Simpson Sunday for breaking the anti-picketing law, he told them to "hurry up" with the arrest procedure at Sacra- mento county jail. Simpson said be told depu- ties he had "to be back at the capitol by for my birth- day party." Then officers at the jail "gave me some coffee and said 'Come back Simpson told onlookers who gathered around a big marble statue in the capitol rotunda where the birthday party took place. Simpson showed up for the party carrying one sign an- nouncing his numerous ar- rests and another proclaim- ing: "Warning 93 and Not Tired. Simpson, a former pastor, started picketing at the capi- tol during Gov. Edmund Brown's administration. His reason was a dispute with the state that has since been all but forgotten. In more recent times, Simp- son has focused his protests on the Simpson Law as the anti-picketing measure is known, on the need for free- dom of speech and on his one- man effort to impeach Gov. Ronald Reagan. Last year Simpson's birth- day occurred on a weekend, and Lt.-Gov. Ed Reinecke led a delegation of well-wishers who threw a surprise birthday party for. him. But the party was delayed because Simpson was in municipal court having another picketing complaint against him dismissed. Calgary choir takes honors ST. JOHN'S, Nfld.

HOUSE LOCATED AT 2309- 22nd AVE., COAIDALE On one side, a phase of wary political horse-trading is immi- nent among leaders of the sue main factions who contested re- cent elections for a new Ulster assembly. Inside 30 days or so the process could yield the sort of power-sharing executive that Britain wants and for which about two-thirds of those elected have opted in varying fashion. On the other side, the season of demonstrations is at hand, giving extremists of each com- munity ample chance to taunt and provoke their rivals. One key date on this calendar is next Thursday, when men of the Orange Order like to flaunt the victory their ancestors won over the Roman Catholics in the Battle of the Boyne 283 years ago. Despite the dangers, several signs suggest the tangled tale of B r i t i s h-Irish conflict has reached a turning point. election 10 days ago at- tracted a 72.26-per-cent poll in the million-strong electorate. Many had forecast the ballot could not be held at all. elements of both communities were isolated in the voting, making little effec- tive impact in the central is- sues. two of every three of the 78 assemblymen elected agree on the principle of Prot- estant-Roman Catholic power- sharing and to a measure of co- operation between British-ruled Northern Ireland and the inde- pendent Irish republic. Minister Liam Cos- grave of the Irish republic called in the aftermath of the ballot for abandonment .of the nationalist approach that holds that one community and tradi- tion can determine Ireland's fu- ture. He turned his back on Dublin's old concept that North- ern Ireland is a "British-occu- pied" colony and urged all con- cerned to make Belfast's new assembly work. CAUTIONS OPTIMISM These things, taken together, have fed British officials cau- tiously to conclude the odds now favor something of a standoff that will permit the politicians to take over from the gunmen and guerrillas. Yet formidable problems still faca William Whitelaw, the British minister in charge of Northern Ireland's political management and security. How is he going to make the assembly work? Who will form the Can the main Roman Catholic-based party be coaxed into coalition with the main Protestant-based party for the shared aim of making the uew constitution work? Whitelaw sets about con- sulting group leaders Tuesday to see whether he can promote all this.
