Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 21, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta The Lcthbridge Herald Fourth Section Lethbridge, Alberta, Wednesday, June 21, 1972 PAGES 39-46 few people walk the middle ground Ulster violence marks evident By KODNEY PINDElt BELFAST (AP) Few people walk the middle ground in Northern Ireland. Three years of violence in a community of million peo- ple have left their mark. Bomb blasts or bursts of gunfire have driven many into rigid stands. Some have seen relatives killed or crippled. All confront daily the sight of soldiers pa- trolling their slreets. But surely, the visitor may think, not everyone is an ex- tremist, not everyone is com- mitted there must be a "si- lent majority" or minority, with the single thought of peace. The sight of quiet resi- dential neighborhoods untouch- ed by violence, contrasting sharply with the bombed and burned houses and buildings of much of Belfast, makes one think that here must be peo- ple who have avoided violence and must fear its spread. Within the untouched areas and villages, often mixed communities of Roman Catho- lic and Prolcslanl, there arc in fact people who say they are moderates opposed to violence. Yet most have strong views. ONLY OFFICE WRECKED Lindsay Smyth, a Protestant, lives in a comfortable suburb of Belfast a few hundred yards from Newlonards Road, scene of rioting. His street, Bclmont Church Road, is unscathed, and Catholic friends live across the way. Smyth's main brush with violence came when the Belfast office of the en- gineering firm he manages was wrecked by a bomb. Smyth considres himself part of the anit-exlrcmist si- lent majority, but his outlok reflects the Protestant view. The Smyths are determined, he says, to see that Northern Ire- land remains British. Smyth is concerned that the Irish Republican Army might force Northern Ireland, where Protestants outnumber Catho- lics, into union with the Irish Republic, dominantly Catho- lic. He is angered that British peace overtures to the Catho- lics mean that soldiers will not invade IRA strongholds like "Free Dcrry" in London- derry. "Until the British govern- ment is prtpared to put down this armed rebellion in its own territory there can be no peace." Patricia Holland, 35, a teach- er who is Catholic, lives with her four children in the district of Ballyhackmore, two streets away from the Smyths. She is encouraged by Catholic revul- sion at the methods of the IRA gunmen and by London's tak- ing over of direct rule of North- ern from its Protestant-domin- ated provincial government. Mrs. Holland is the only Catholic on ber street, but "there never has been any trouble.11 She visits her mother in a more militantly-Protestant area "and we just keep quiet and don't bother anybody." Rev. Patrick Mulvie runs St, Patrick's Church in a relative- ly unscarred area of London- derry. Parishoners after Sun- day masses were trickling up to his door to sign a peace pe- tition partly organized by the church. Father Mulvie said 500 of the eligible in his parish had signed. "The church stands In tha he says gently. "The church docs not believe in bombing or shooting." Boat safety emphasized OTTAWA (CP) Despite laws requiring provision of a government-approved life jacket for every passenger, the public continues to ignore boating safety regulations designed to protect them, says the Canadian Safety Council. It is trying to get their message across during Sate Boating Week July 1 to 7. Drownings involving boats in 1970 totalled nearly 3M. Figures indicate more than 80 per cent of the victims were not wearing life jackets. The council campaign is stressing common sense in boat- ing practices and a check of all safety rules. This is the most effective means of preventing rec- reation tragedies." The life jacket law Is largely ignored, the council says, be- cause of minor inconvenience or expense and difficulty in enforc- ing regulations in remote areas. The council urges "voluntary compliance" with the law. Principal cause of tragic boat- ing accidents is said to be care- lessness on the part of opera- tors. Boaters should take care not to overload, should learn the rules and proper safety prac- tices and use equipment safely. TO THE RESCUE When Dennis Smith of Darlmoufh, climbed to his roof to re- pair a chimney, iwo-year-old Choco the dog tagged along. When the time came to come down, Choco balked. He apparently wanted to descend in slyle--so the firemen came and Choco saunlered down. Growers' dilemma: How to market rapeseed at best possible price By JIM NEAVES WINNIPEG (CP) With export prospects looking' ro- sier, Canada's rapeseed pro- ducers are faced with the problem of how to market their product at the best price. Sold on the open market, the product is subject to rapid price fluctuations. A decline early this year was believed a factor in farmers deciding to decrease planned acreages to 3.4 million from 5.5 million last year. Demand for rapeseed, known as the "Cinderella has grown substan- tially during the last five years and still is growing. A report on rapeseed mar- keting, commissioned in 1970 by Otto Lang, minister in charge of (he Canadian wheat board, was published about a year ago. It compared the advantages and disadvantages of the present open market selling system, a voluntary pooling system, the establishment of a marketing agency by the pro- ducers and pulling rapeseed under the control of the wheat board! CALL FOR REFERENDUM It made no specific recom- mendation on which method should be adopted, but there is a growing indication from prairie farm leaders that marketing should be either under the wheat board or han- dled by a producer controlled agency. The wheat board, which regulates the movement of rapeseed through its quota system, is not directly con- cerned with marketing. The prospect of having to take over rapeseed marketing does not excite board officials. Charles Gibbings, a board commissioner, says: "We're not soliciting the additonal responsibility." Before the board could ac- cept such a responsibility, he said, a referendum among producers is essential. Mr. Gibbings said Hie board would need time to get "toled up" and obtain per- Tightrope act nominal success ny VINCENT BUITS BUCHAREST (Renter) Ro- mania's Communist leadership appears convinced that it has won Moscow's full, if grudging, acceptance of this country's in- dividual role in both East bloc and world affairs. For more than seven years, these small, impoverished Com- munist slates of Romania and Hungary, have pursued their own course sometimes at odds with Moscow, sometimes in step with Moscow, sometimes just neu- tral. Occasionally the dizzy tight- rope act of Romanian diplo- macy, executed with personal aplomb by its parly and stale leader Nicolae Ceausescu, ap- peared to beckon disaster never came. its leaders have slowly worked to heal the breaches wjth other allies witliin the East European Communist community. SIGN TREATIES A long delayed friendship treaty with Hungary was sign- ed recently, and now the most prickly allies of alt the East Germans have come to Bucharest to sign their first 20-year treaty with Romania after years of estrangement. Romania touched off the era of coolness in IKX by estab- lishing diplomatic relations with West Germany without warning East Berlin or seek- ing Moscow's approval. Bucharest's policy of retain- ing friendly ties and develop- ing relations with China, des- pite the great Moscow Peking quarrel, has become an es- tablished pillar of its program within the Communist world. And although Romania con- demns large-scale manoeuvres by Communist troops on its territory or any manoeuvres anywhere its role inside the East bloc's Warsaw Pact alii ance has been established as kind of paying but non-active member. SUPPORTED CZECHS Perhaps the Romanian lead cr came closest to the prcci nioe in August, 1068, when ne courageously stood outside the Bucharest Communist party headquarters and told a throng of cheering Romanians that he condemned the Sovicty-lcd in vasion of Czechoslovakia. Only a few days before Ceausescu had signed a trea ty of friendship with the re- formist Prague leader Alcxan der Dubcck and vowed to giv Dubcek and his program o "socialism with a human face' full Romanian backing. The fiery speech which Ceau- sescu made at that tense mo- ment in his country's history has been discreetly edited out of official volumes of his pol- icy with oilier less-than-friendly references to the Soviet Union. jonnel to market rapeseed effectively. Both, ftlanitoba. and Sas- katchewan agriculture minis- ters support wheat board in- volvement, but in Alberta offi- cials are not enthusiastic about the prospect. John Channon, chairman of the newly-appointed Alberta grain commission, said his group still is studying the mailer but "Ihe commission- feeling is that marketing should not be under the wheat board." Jack Messer, Saskatchewan agriculture minister, says put- ting rapeseed under the wheat board would provide farmers with an announced initial price prior to seeding and re- move fluctuations "which are most disappointing to the ma- jority of farmers." "Their rapeseed plantings are small in comparison with the total farm operation, but they rely on it as a cash crop and as an injection into the earning power which should provide some assistance to the viability of the operation." Sam Uskiw, Maniloba agri- cuilure minister, said he has always supported marketing under the wheat board but placing Ihe responsibility there would require "some in- dication of public support." "I would hope the federal government would establish a referendum on the question." BACKED RY NFU The Rapeseed Association of Canada, at its annual meet- ing in vSaskaloon, acknowl- edged the marketing report but took no action on it. Ken Edie of Dugald, Man., an association director, told Ihe meeting 'blind adherence to any one system will not serve the farmers' needs." Kenneth Naber of Melfort, Sask., past president of the Rapeseed Association of Sas- katchewan, said the 'appre- hensions some farmers feel toward Ihe present" pen markcl situation cannot be'ig- nored. He challenged the national association to come up with a marketing policy that would be satisfactory to all in the in- dustry. "If you refuse or fail to act, I shudder to think of the con- sequences." Stuart Thiesson of Saska- toon, secretary-treasurer of the National Farmers Union, says the union supports Ihe wheat board concept "The price fluctuations in rapeseed are prevalent in the open market system and do not provide any form of equal- ity I o growers." He said the present system places growers in the position of gambling on the market place with "one hand tied be- hind their backs." Carnation Evaporated Skim Milk 23 CALORIES PER FL.
