The tall, elegant creature at the The letltbrtdge Herald THIRD SECTION Lcthbridge, 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 working 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, While- 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- ten. 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 seemed impressive to the point one national newspaper reflecting opinion on that end of the political .spec- trum termed 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 the 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 by infuriated unionists of for being "soft" on (lie IRA j and, in particular, for meeting with rcpresentalhcs of the guerrilla group. Expect wheat-flour exports to top 500 million bushels By VICTOR MACKIE Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Canada's total wheat and flour exports are ex- >ected to exceed 500 million mshels in 1971-72 and should ich at least 450 million rashels in 1972-73, officials say n the federal department of Lgriculture. However price changes are uncertain for the next six months, said the officials in the 972 summer outlook forecast issued here. The supply and demand fac- ors are such that price changes or wheat on the world market cannot be forecast with any de- gree of accuracy at this time. Canada's exports to date are 1.1 million metric tons higher ban in the previous year. Exporst from all other major sellers were subsatntially lower. World wheat trade between 'uly, 1971 and March, 1972 at 3.58 million metric tons was own from the year earlier by .82 m.t. While data available is till fragmentary, the level of world exports should increase in 972-73 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 mil 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 of wheat to China. Half of this wheat mil 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 Protes- tant anger. Similarly, extra toughness towards the IRA or advocates alienates the vt-ry Catholic groups which for months he has been trying to wean away fiom sympathy uitfi terioihsin. What make1; the picture worse now than ever is the way Prof- i slants have in recent weeks completed the organ'zation ot para-mihtary loiillations for they term self-defence. HARX BRITISH The Ulster Defence Associa- tion for instance, feels strong enough ct this stage to warn the Brit'sh that unless they act firmly 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 maxi- 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 the vigor with which the self-de- scribed peacemakers have begun fresh campaigns for a lasting end to the violence. They affirm that Ulstermen of both faiths are simply too war- weary to feel capable of coping with full-scale civil strife. And the thought of how all-cut sectarian war would negate the half century of effort that has gone into the economic develop- ment of Northern Ireland may have influenced some Protes- tant Rev. Ian Paisley and former minister Brian what a number of observers de- scribe as relatively mrxlerats reactions to the critical (vent of recent days. w H H M i'4 H1 H WHOOP-UP DAYS IN LETHBRIDGE fil ;w- Swf! r r I-. r Points ffie Way to Great Summer Savings!
