JJ _ 1MB UTHBR1DGE H68AID Thurnlay, June 15, 1972--------------------------------------------------- Wliitelaw, RC politicians discuss Ulster issues LONDON (P.euler) Two pi eminent Roman Catholic poli- ticians from Northern Ireland are to hold precedent-setting talks here today with the British minister responsible for Ulster, William Whitelaw. A request Wednesday night for the meeting by the Social Democratic and Labor Party, the main Catholic opposition group, was seen by observers here and in Belfast as a highly significant development in the quest for peace in Northern Ire- land. It ended the influential party's policy of refusing to talk with Hie British administrators, who assumed direct rule of Ulster last March, unless all suspected members of the Irish Republi- can Army being held without trial were released from deten- tion. Party members Paddy Devlin and John Hume were to attend the meeting, intended to deal specifically with the peace-talks offer made to Whitelaw Tuesday by the militant Provisional wing of the IRA. The British minister turned down the IRA offer, saying he could not "respond lo ultima- tums from terrorists." SAYS CHANCE MISSED The Social Democratic and Labor party said Wednesday it thought Whilelaw, in refusing to see the IRA, had missed an op- portunity to restore it called on the IRA to observe a 48-hour truce while the party's representatives talked with him. The had offered a seven-day ceasefire it Whitelaw would meet them in their barri- caded stronghold in London- derry. But if the minister refused their campaign of shoot- ings and bombings would be in- tensified, they said. In another-signiftcant political move Wednesday a key Protes- tant politician resigned from the Unionist party which governed Northern Ireland before direct British rule. Sir Robert Porter, home af- fairs minister in the Protestant- dominated Unionist government in 1969 and 1970, said he was leaving the party because it now is being seen as "a Protes- tant right-wing party." The former Unionist minister of commerce, Robin Baillie, left the party last Friday for much the same reason. 30-DAY FORECAST Western Canada can expect higher than normal temperatures over next 30 dayi according to the 30-day outlook of the United Stales weather bureau.

The disclosure last week of the pardon, granted quietly in November, 1971, opened slill wider the wounds that the Nazi occupation period represents for France. The country's memo- ries of the period have been stirred by continuing publica- tion of the memoirs of Klaus Barbie, Ihe Lyon Gestapo boss who is at large in Bolivia. Now, the question is posed how Pompidou can write letters to President Hugo Banzer of Bo- livia, asking for Barbie's extra- dition to France, where he is under the death penalty, when le has restored Touvier, 57, to :he full rights of French citizen- ship. Pompidou, who lived quietly :hrough the war as a school :eacher without any under- ground ties, was reported by the lews magazine L'Express to have signed Touvicr's pardon despite unfavorable recommen- dations by the justice and inte- rior ministries. Protests about Touvier have come from the family of Victor Basctie, a former, head of the League of Human Rights, who Touvier was accused o( murder- lave one other aged five. child, Ralph, ing, and from an anti Nazi league which says that It "will in no case permit Touvier to freely walk the streets of Lyon." With legislative elections com- ing next year, it seems that Pompidou could be hurt by the Touvier-Barbie case.

It also set off a new round of Commons disorder, with Prime Minister Heath exclaiming "rubbish" in reply to Opposition taunts and quitting the chamber after the vote result was announced, again to Labor jeers. Narrow as the eight-vote majority was, it seemed bigger than some opponents of market entry had hoped for. The House voted at the committee stage on a clause about the transfer of legislative power In the event of market membership. For many opponents of entry, this is the crux of the case against membership. They contend that joining the market will rob the Commons ol much of its traditional power and turn these sovereign to bureaucrats In the Common Market headquarters at irussels. Labor anti-marketeer Peter hore, speaking shortly before le Commons vole, insisted thai upporting the transfer-ot-pow-rs clause would be "lo connive t the dismantling ot many f the powers ol the British tale." Geoffrey Rippon, lha mlnislcr n charge of Britain's moves to-vards entry, termed the allega-ions about less of sovereignty operating In yueDec, Mr. Kulakowski asked CNTU support in the fight of Latin American workers against Canadian capitalists investing in South America.
