Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 15, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 28 THE IITHBRIDGE HERAID Thunday, June 15, 1971 British gamble must be played out fast BELFAST (Re-ler) The British government's attempt to win Northern Ireland's Roman Catholic community away from Irish Republican Army extre- mists appears to be a deliberate gamble which must be played out quickly. Observers believe that the farther William Wtiitelaw, Brit- ain's chief executive in Ulster, goes in winning tiie support of tiie Cotholc minority, the big- ger is (lie danger of him losing the support of the Protestant majority. Whitclaw, whose official title is secretary of state for North- ern Ireland, is walking a light- rope as lie tries !o reassure the Prol est a iona Ujr loyal to the British Iheir interests will he protected, while at the same time at- tempting to convince the Cath- olics that he will deal sym- p-ithelically with their civil- rights grievances. But in the meantime, IRA violence continues, bombs go off POLARIZED LENSES POLARIZED LENSES com- pletely eliminate annoying glare from water high- ways and beaches, And now you can havo them in your pre- scription!

This followed three years of sectarian violence, with the British army, in its role as peacemaker, bearing the brunt. Since direct rule was de- Cj.'fJ, Protestant militancy has steadily risen to the danger point. Delegates lo the general assembly of the Presbyterian church in Ireland voted recently to withhold their support from Whitclaw. Brian Faulkner, Uls- ter's last prime minister, lias attacked Vi'hitclaw's "fruitless" policies. Jnmes Kodgers. a leading I member of the Young Unionists, youth wing of the main Protes- tant party, has called for "war on Whilelaw.' This, he said, could fake the form of strikes. Masked men in para-military uniforms drill openly and prac- tise unarmed combat in Protes- tant areas. RELEASES SUSPECTS Whitclaw is steailily releasing suspected IRA extremists held without trial in interment camps. One result of this policy has been a ceasefire called by the Marxist-leaning official wing of ttie IRA, while there has been considerable support for a peace campaign launched by Catholic women in London- derry and Belfast. But violence by the mililant Provisional wing of Ihe IRA continues. But many Catholic observers believe that a recent increase in IRA violence is a last desperate bid on Ihe part oj the Provision- als to spark a major clash be- tween Catholics and the British army, thereby bringing the Catholic community back into the IHA fold. The Provisional say they will stop the violence only when all internees are rolensed and Brit- ish troops stop patrolling in Uls- ter. Despite repeated assurances from Whitelaw, Protestants arc wondering just how far the Brit- ish government Is prepared to go lo rid Ulster of violence. Many fear that Northern Ire- land will be turned over to (he neighboring, predominanlly- Catholic Irish republic from which it was partitioned in 1921. The Brlisli government says this will never be done against the wishes of the majority. TIME KUNS OUT But' time is running out for Whilelaw, and moderates in both camps wonder if the Provi- sional can be isolated from the majority of Calholics before Protestant fear, anger and dis- trust breaks into violence. The Bogside, Catholic area of Belfast, the Protestanls main reason for (heir street barriers and mililant marches, is a "no- go" area for police and British Iroops. The barricades at the entrance to Free Derry, as It is called by the IRA, are manned by masked, armed Provisional, who are the law in Catholic areas ot Londonderry. The UDA says that unless British troops take control of Free Derry in the next two weeks, the Protestant barriers will go up permanently and there will be Protestant 'no-go" areas too. AIL LINED "soldiers" of the Proteslant Ulster Defence Association sland by a barricade built from hijacked trucks in Belfast. Tension rose in the capital city following the deaths of five people in less than 24 hours of shooting and bombing. Body found in bushlancl SURREY, B.C. (CP) The body of seven-year-old Tanya Busch was found in busbland in this Vancouver suburb Wed- nesday, 12 days, after she disap- peared from her Vancouver school. The body was found by two Vancouver detectives, only four miles from where the body of seven-year-old Evangeline Az- arcon was found in January last year. Both places are reached from the same exit of the Port Mann Freeway, but police declined to link the two cases. Neither would say why De- tectives Bill Walsh and Nick Lohm had gone back to the area, which has been scoured at least once before during the search for Tanya. Tanya's father, Klaus Busch, 33, was taken home from his job as a guard at the British Columbia Penitentiary in New Westminster so he could be with lus wife when the discovery was announced.

The strike by the province's hospital workers, teachers, civil servants, hydro and liquor board employees lasted 11 days. Quebec had a total of 23 strikes and lockouts in April, involving 211.543 workers. The general alone involved workers. Ninety-seven per cent of Ihe workers idle in April across the country were involved in nine major work stoppages, each af- fecting 500 or more workers, the department said in a news re- lease. including strikes in federal in- dustries and the public service, there was a total of 94 work stoppages in Canada (or the month involving work- ers. In April fast year workers participated in the 91 strikes and lockouts. Ontario led the national total of work stoppages in April this year with 35 involving workers and lost man- days. Quebec was second with its 23 strikes and lockouts. The general strike pushed its total of lost man-rlays up to British Columbia was third with 16 strikes and lockouts involving workers and lost man-days. Prince Edward Island was the only province free of work stop- pages during the month. Mani- toba had only one. types in media newsrooms at public expense to feed them news releases and it is "noth- ing short of government prop- aganda on behalf of the party being given over a publicly sup- ported wire system." A spokesman for the Progres- sive Conservative government said government news releases will be sent on ttie telet y p e circuits into newsrooms outside Edmonton. There will be no compulsion for a newspaper, radio or television station lo in- stall the machines. The information fed over Ihe system will be statements by the premier or cabinet minis- ters that are released through Ihe premier's office or [he newly-created bureau of public affairs. The government said feeding the information to areas out- side Edmonton will end t tt e discrimination out-of-town news outlets face in not having im- mediate access to releases.

Grain permit books being mailed out WINNIPEG (CP) The gen- eral director ot country ser- vices for the Canadian wheat board says mailing of producer applications for delivery per- mit books for Hie 1972-73 crop year bsgan Wednesday. Stan Hornby said tins is the first year that applications aro being mailed directly to pro- ducers with the address and land information from last year's records printed on the forms. Grain producers must obtain, a permit book in order to de- liver grain in the new crop year which slsrts on Aug. 1, 1972. Producers may complete their own applications or have their elevator manager assist them in this job. The elevator man- ager then imprints the appli- cation and forwards it to the Canadian wheat board office in Winnipeg. Fre-printing ot the applica- tions complete with the pro- ducer information was handled by the wheat board's computer system and about per- sonalized applications are ex- pected to be mailed out in the next few days, ssid Mr. Horn- by. He said the new system, us- ing a pre-printed application, will allow producers and eleva- tor managers lo complete ths form in less lime than usual because many of the details are already filled in. W-hero changes are necessary due fo a producer changing his address or farm operation, Ihe elevator manager, with the producer's help, will complete a new ap- plicalion.
