Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 13, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta -Friday, July 13, 1973 THE ICTHMIDGf HBUID IS I i LETTUCE By KEVIN DOYLE LONDON (CP) Thousands of Orangemen have again marched through the towns end cities of Northern Ireland to commemorate the historic battle of the Boyne, which once established Protestant suprem- acy through the length and brea.dth of Ulster. But this year there was little to celebrate apart from that an- cient skirmish on a muddy, sluggish river 283 years ago when Protestant Prince William of Orange defeated the forces of Catholic King James II. Behind the waving Union Jacks and bright orange ban- ners, a deepening sense of gloom seemed to prevade the July 12 festivities which no amount of optimistic speech- making or confident reas- surances could dispel.

I I I I l I I I I I Interpreting the News Ulster Protestants in disarray Hutterites cut buying of land EDMONTON (CP) Hut- terites have demonstrated re- sponsibility since the repeal of the Communal Properties Act in March, buying only 60 acres of land since that time, the chairman of the Alberta Ad- visory Committee on Commu- nal Properties said Thursday. Arnold Platt said in tele- phone interview from Calgary that his committee, set up by the legislature after the re- peal, will be looking into all aspects of land use as well as the communal properties ques- tion. He said the committee prob- ably would disband after mak- ing its recommendations with- in a few years. Mr, Platt said Us committee was a short term, advisory body with no authority to ten Hutterite colonies how much land they could buy. Tftje committee also would disband if the government es- tablished stringent regulations concerning ktsd he said. nated by the Unionist party, has dashed by another Wil- liam, Britain's Secretary for Northern Ireland, William Whitelaw. FORUM PREPARED The minister announced be- fore the celebrations began that a new Ulster Assembly, with limited authority and in which Catholics will play a major part, is to meet for the first time July 30 if appropriate leg- islation can be passed quickly by Westminster. For a vast number of Protes- tants, the new power-sharing assembly represents a first step on the road to an eventual re- unification of Northern Ireland with the predominantly-Catholic tosh Republic to the south. "The protestant political forces are in disarray. The united front they once presented is torn by bitter internal feuding among factions led by former premier Brian Faulkner and radicals such as William Craig and Rev. Ian Paisley. In the new assembly, Faulk- ner and his Unionist party will have only a slight edge in seats over the Catholic Social Demo- 120-man guard unit formed EDMONTON {CP) A 120- man guard unit outfitted in 1885 period uniform of the North West Mounted Police will march through the streets of Edmonton this summer. The provincial government yesterday announced a grant to a special unit of toe Canadian Forces Militia for formation of (be unit, to be known as the Alberta Govern- ment Centennial Guard. The militia has joined with the RCMP for the project. cratic and Labor Party (SDLP) and will have to count on get- ting some kind of support from Craig and Paisley to survive. ASSEMBLY THREATENED But Faulkner's ideal of main- taining Ulster's links with Brit- ain and making the assembly work is anathema to Craig and Paisley, both of whom termined to render the legisla- tive body ineffective. Craig sees an independent Ulster as the only means of protecting Prot- estant interests. Oil, gas leases net 1.8 million EDMONTON (CP) The Al- berta government has received from the sale of 20 oil and natural gas leases. Western Land Service Co. Ltd. paid the highest price, for acres 30 miles north of LJoydmmster on the Saskatchewan border. Only one parcel offered for sale did not receive a bid.
