Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 13, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta LONG TRIP TO STOMACH A supple neck bends a little to bring a giraffe down from 1he usual aloof stance for something to eat. The tall, elegant creature at the Okanagan Game Form near Penticlon recently gave birth to the first baby giraffe born in British Columbia. The Lethbridge Herald THIRD SECTION Lclhbridge, Alberta, Thursday, July 13, 1972 PAGES 21 TO 28 It's back to square one, in British Ulster peace campaign By CY FOX Canadian Press Staff Writer The men and women wor'ring for peace in blood-stained Northern Ireland have been forced by the latest deteriora- tion of the situation there to begin their tortuous labors all over again with appeals to mili- tant; on both sides to pull back from the ultimate plunge into civil war. But the man who is saddled with the toughest job of all in the deepening crisis is the min- ister for Ulster affairs in the British cabinet, William White- law. Only a few weeks ago, White- law was enjoying moments of near-triumph following the an- nouncement by the underground Irish Rpeublican Army of a truce in its battle with the Brit- ish. In the first days of sheer re- lief after the IRA announce- ment, Whitelaw was praised by a wide range of political groups and it seemed that his policy of cautious concessions to the mi- nority Roman Catholics had paid off handsomely. Even in the highly-skeptical right wing of the governing Con- servative party, the minister's performance Deemed impressive to the point where one national newspaper reflecting opinion on that end of the political spec- trum termed Whitelaw a poten- tial prime minister. Now the 54-year-old Whitelaw seems to be back where he started when he assumed his current duties as part of Uie switch to direct rule of Ulster from London more than three months ago. Moreover he is being de- nounced by some Conservatives of the well as hy the infuriated unioni.'ls of for being "soft" on (lie IRA and, in particular, fnr meeting with representatives of the Riierrilla group. Expect wheat-Hour exports to top 500 million bushels By VICTOR IMACKrE Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Canada's total wheat and flour exports are ex- pected to exceed 500 million bushels in 1971-72 and should reach at least 450 million bushels in 1972-73, officials say in the federal department of agriculture. However price changes are uncertain for the next six months, said the officials in the 1972 summer outlook forecast issued here. The supply and demand fac- tors are such that price changes for wheat on the world market cannot be forecast with any de- gree of accuracy at this lime. Canada's exports to date are 2.1 million metric tons higher than in the previous year. Exporst from all other major sellers were subsatntially lower. World wheat trade between July, 1971 and March, 1972 at 33.58 million metric tons was down from the year earlier by 1.82 m.t. While data available is still fragmentary, the level of world exports should increase in 1972-73 from the 1971-72 level. In Canada overseas clearance of wheat in the crop year up to May 31 totalled 333 million bushels, compared to 273 at the same time in 1971. An additional 19 million bushels had been shipped as flour by the end of April, slightly above last year's ship- ments. Exports of durum reached 42.7 million bushels by May 31. Total wheat and flour exports for the year will exceed 500 mil- lion bushels the official esti- mated. The expectancy of a continued high level of sales in 1972-73 is strengthened by the recent sale of an additional 58.8 million bushels ol wheat to China. Half of this wheat will be shipped this calendar year and the other half early in 1973. The export level may go higher if by October the Soviet Union exercises its option for the purchase of 50 million addi- tional bushels. The USSR and Chinese mar- kets, which in the long run- mus be "considered uncertain" ac- cording to the department's summer assessment, are "now of major significance to Can- it said. Statistics Canada in its March estimate of total wheat acreage milliin re- sult in production of 500 to 550 million bushels, well below the expected disposition of 600 or more million bushels. The agriculture department said "a careful appraisal of re- quirements and stock levels seems desirable in early 1973." While no accurate stock data are available for durum in- tended acreage is 2.6 million acres for 1972. This could result In a crop lower than disposal bout 70 million the second successive year. On the domestic scene, said the department, freight assisted shipments of wheat for feed fell off by 25 per cent in the first eight months of 1972-72. Total domestic movement, however, including wheat for food, was down inly about six million bushels to 87.3 million by May 31. Of even greater importance to the cause of peace is the fact that vents have made White- law's dilemma even more ex- cruciating than it was origi- nally. Now, as then, any concessions he makes to the militant Catho- lics provokes explosive Protes- tant anger. Similarly, extra toughness towards the IRA or advocates alienates the very Catholic groups which for months he has been trying to wean away from sympathy with (errori.sin. What makes the picture worse now than ever is the way Prof- e.stanls have in recent weeks completed the organization ot para-military formations for they term self-defence. H'AIIN BRITISH The Ulster Defence Associa- tion, for instance, feels strong enough fA this stage to warn the British that unless they act [irmly against the IRA, the UDA will itself "take steps to eliminate terrorists." The IRA, on the other hand, with its decision to renew hostil- ities virtually on the eve of tha July 12 range celebrations, seemed to be exhibiting max''- mum confidence in its ability to deal with any military action the UDA can mount. The only glimmer of light in the whole tragic situation is Hie vigor with which the self-dc- scribed peacemakers nave begun fresh campaigns for s lasting end to the violence. They affirm that Ulstermen of both faiths are simply loo war- weary to feel capable of coping with full-scale civil strife. And the thought of how all-out sectarian war would negate the half century of effort that ha gone into the economic develop- ment of Northern Ireland may have influenced some Protes- tant Rev. Ian Paisley and former pritni minister Brian what a number ol observers de- scribe as relatively moderate reactions to the critical event of recent days. ui H M M I B y M M H H '4 H j _i M ..i H H WHOOP-UP DAYS IN LETHBRIDGE M: Swim Fins Mares Sea King Swim Fins.
