Bill an amendment to the Municipal Elections would permit a disqualified mayor or councillor in Alberta to appeal to a judge to have the period of disqualification shortened.

He said many of the questions asked of him by patients were answered accurately in the book. Dr. Nelson admitted that had the book been written 15 or 20 years it might have been by some people. However the since the Second World War and changing attitudes to sex during the last few years have led to people asking straight forward he said. He saw the book as in tc relieve some of the stress and anxiety that become involved in sexual including those in marriage.

A total of 107 passengers and crew LONDON The an- nouncement that documents have been discovered outlining Irish Republican Army plans for launching a civil war in Northern Ireland has caused an immediate sensation in Britain and brought praise for the security forces in Ulster. But many observers see the plans as little more than a re- statement of long-known IRA Some suggest Prime Minister Harold Wilson may have given the announcement more drama than its importance warranted in order to show that British troops in Ulster are still effec- despite some pressure in Britain for their withdrawal. Two leading IRA officers were captured in the house where the documents were found. 'the documents showed the IRA has formulated plans for taking over sections of bombing Protestant areas of the city and burning any parts they were forced to yield as part of a policy. The discovery led Brian leader of the mori- bund Northern Ireland execu- to issue a statement that the IRA now has been proven to be the greatest enemy of the Irish people. CLAIM AUTHORSHIP The IRA was quick to claim authorship of the found in a Belfast house. But the organization's spokesmen maintained that the documents contained contingency plans which would be put into full effect only if civil war broke out. Loyalist say privately they have emergency plans to be put into effect in case of an outright. civil war. .they include burning parts of Belfast and destroying sections of its industrial complex. Wilson stressed that the IRA objective of taking over areas of the city was particularly ominous. But it is general knowledge in Ulster that the IRA already controls life in most of the Roman Catholic enclaves of Belfast and other large centres. The same is true of Protestant extremists who wield great authority over the loyalist areas. As far as the scorched-earth policy of burning areas which it might be unable to the IRA first began this as long ago as 1969 when it organized the Catholics to burn the homes they were forced out of rather than surrender them to Protestant extremists. When Wilson made his dra- matic he was faced with what seems to be a slowly-building feeling within his Labor party that the troops should be pulled out of Ulster. The IRA probably prefers a' situation where it can continue its guerrilla tactics in a kind of a no-war no-peace stalemate.
