Oddities in the News BOLTON, England (AP) -The wordless vicar of St. John's finally has his parishioners awake, interested and talking. He did it with the silent treatment. For months, Rev. Norman Kelly wrote raging editorials, on controversial subjects in bis newsletter. He tried sarcasm, abuse and every other device to stir his sleepy parish into a discussion without making a dent. Then Mr. Kelly distributed a newsletter which merely said: "Dear Parishioners" and ended "Yours Sincerely" with nothing in between. , "Now everyone is getting at me, at last," he said today.

Later Maria telephoned long distance that she and Giuseppe had been in love for a longtime. Catholic, Protestant game played in Ireland BELFAST (AP) - Belfast children play a new game called "Catholic and Protestant, using make believe gasoline bombs and tomato sauce for blood. Grownups head for suburban pubs and movies on Saturday night instead of going downtown where a package of explosive may roll inside the next time someone opens the door. Burned-out taverns along Falls Road-strictly Roman Catholic pubs-and the Protestant Shankill are bricked up as the owners expect them to stay that way a long time. The Northern Ireland seaport capital bears the scars of nearly two years of sectarian brawls. Few of its 500,000 people think the last round is near. Few heads turn any more at the occasional British Army New govt, regulations curb heavy equipment imports TORONTO (CP) - The federal government has adopted new regulations to protect Canadian producers from unfair importations of subsidized heavy equipment and machinery, Finance Minister Edgar Benson said today. He told the Canadian Importers Association that regulations were passed by the cabinet Tuesday to curb such imports when they threaten material injury to Canadian industry producing the same kind of goons. _ Canada needs a high volume of both exports and imports for its economic health, he said. But the country has a right under the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) to protect itself from injury. The new regulations were passed under the Anti-Dumping Act and apply to imports of heavy equipment and machinery that have been subsidized by the country of origin, or sold on unusually low credit terms. "This is a kind of dumping since the net cost of the goods to the importer is reduced by the easy credit," he said. Canada is joining other developed countries in offering special tariff concessions for im- Kootenay lake fishery in danger from dams VICTORIA (CP) - A research scientist fired two weeks ago by the British Columbia government says dams built under the Canada  United States Columbia River Treaty could wipe out a $7 million sport fishery on Kootenay Lake in the B.C. interior. E. H. Aoara, a Turkish - born scientist who has spent six years in charge of a provincial research project into the effect of the dams, said two fish kills in Kootenay Lake can be traced to poor - quality water stored behind Duncan Dam. Mr. Acara said in an interview he was fired from his job March 5 on two hours notice because be repeatedly warned of danger of more massive fish Mils. Kootenay Lake, enriched by biologists 20 years ago when they introduced fresh water shrimp to supplement natural feed, produces some of the world's biggest rainbow trout along with a number of other fish species. The Duncan Dam, which went into operation in 1967, cuts off the Duncan River two miles north of Kootenay Lake. The Kootenay River, which runs into the south end of the 63-mile long lake, will be cut by the Libby Dam in Montana. In the fall of 1969, a million whitef isb died in the north and west arms of Kootenay Lake. In May, 1970, rainbow trout that were spawned in the Lar-deau River started dying from similar symptoms. Mr. Acara said the problem is caused in the Duncan reservoir by rotting vegetation which takes oxygen from the water and replaces it with carbon dioxide. es WATCH TRADE-IN SALE save 20% to 50% TRADE-INS ACCEPTED ON EVERY WATCH AT MACKENZIE'S.

Import duties for goods from such countries will be cut by the end of thic year to the low rate of the British Preferential Tariff, or to two-thirds the current GATT rate, whichever is lower. This should lead to an expansion of world trade which will benefit all countries, Mr. Benson said. But Canada reserves the right to withdraw these special tariff preferences for a particular product if imports prove to be disruptive or threaten serious injury to Canadian producers. The finance minister urged the United States to revise its tariff law which now permits imposition of higher duty rates on imports of subsidized goods, whether or not they threaten to do injury to American business. Only when injury is threatened should such duties be imposed. "Canada cannot afford to pursue a policy of high protection," Mr. Benson said. "Trade is too important to us and I think virtually all Canadians are agreed on that. "But if we want to bring about a reduction in the general level of protection, it is essential to have effective measures to prevent market disruption and unfair competition in our domestic market. . . . "(It is) essential too that we use all our bargaining power to get effective entry into other markets for those goods which we can produce efficiently in Canada." jeep that rolls through town during the day, and military spot searches of cars at night are only a nuisance. But the strain is showing. TOURISTS SCARCE Irish linen and tweed shops are nearly empty of tourists. Some 39,000 people-7.5 per cent of Ulsters work force-are jobless, partly because of the disturbances. A bill for riot, damage estimated unofficially at �40 million ($96 million) is still being paid. Psychiatrist Dr. Morris Fraser of the Childrens Hospital reports an upsurge in mental illness among the youngsters exposed to the violence. Dr. Fraser says: "The kids play at riots. They use tomato sauce for blood one day, then see real blood the next. "Fantasy and reality exist side by side. Some of these kids cant tell the difference. Among Dr. Frasers patients, he says in a report to the British Journal of Psychiatry, was Sean, 11, who developed crying fits and nightmares of "a big evil man with frightening eyes" after his family was twice, evacuated from riots. Peter Outrara of the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children says four-year-old children in playgrounds pretend to hurl gasoline bombs at each other across make-believe barricades. SOME UNAFFECTED Michael Blankley, 36, a Protestant accountant who lives with his wife and five children in a �9,000 hillside house in suburban Newtown-abbey, is typical of a large number of middle-class moderates unaffected by the troubles. FOR DAILY INSPIRATION Dial-A-Thought 327-4581 "Of the 80 people in our firm, 13 are Roman' Catholics, Blankley says. "The young men drink and go out to find girls together. We have Roman Catholic neighbors with whom we are good friends. But there is next to no contact in the downtown riot areas between Protestants and Catholics. "People outside Belfast don't realise that Catholic and Protestant here can go through life without meeting each other, Dr. Fraser says. "There's complete division in schools, neighborhoods and jobs. The atmosphere of hostility is ever present. Experienced observers in Northern Ireland say the Catholic attitude has mellowed somewhat with the gradual introduction of civil rights reforms by the govern* ment. REGAINING COMPOSURE . They say the "parlor moderates of the Protestant middle class are slowly regaining the composure they lost when three British soldiers were killed-murders they blame on republican guerrillas. They note some fledgling efforts to reorganize life across sectarian lines-Women for Action, a social group from both sides of the peace line; the New Ulster Movement, a mixed civic action group, and the Alliance party, which plans to put up candidates attractive to both religions. Street confrontations be* tween Protestant tad Catholc crowds have subsided, although guerrilla activity persists within the Catholic community. COME IN . . .
