Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 22, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 34 THE LETHBRIDCE HERALD Tuesday, May 22, 3973 Charges fill air as Ulster turns mind to ballot 15y COLIN FROST BELFAST (AP) While the bombs continue to explode and the bullets fly. Northern Ireland is turning its mind to the ballot Cries of Betrayal and Boycott already are tilling the air. But "if t his exercise in de- mocracy is a success, it could conceivably mean that peace ha? a chance of breaking out. Two elections are scheduled in quick succession. On May 30 the one-million voters ail citizens above the age oYlS, will choose 26 district councils. On June 28 come the more important elections for a Northern Ireland assembly to supplant the former Protestant- domm-ited Ulster parliament. Already it is clear ihat the P r o i e s t a n t-based Unionist pirty, the dominant voice in Northern Ire'acd affairs for 50 years, will no longer control Londonderry, focus of the four years of sectarian turmoil wh ch has cost close to 800 lives sirce 1869. Per all but three years of the lest 50 the Unionists had bossed Londonderry, a symbol of Prot- estant defiance against Roman Catholic Irish nationalism. achieved this despite being'outnumbered 2 to 1 in the 56.000 population. Hence the" cnes of gerrymandering. A ote-nggmg and anti-Catholic discrimination which gave rise to the 1568 Catholic-based civil richts campaign and its sub- sequent development into guer- rilla war "This time the Unionists have no chance cf winning a major- ity in Londonderry. They have rot nominated enough candi- dates. The city may well fall to the Catholic-based Social Demo- crat and Labor party. MANY POWERS GONE Much of the attraction of mu- i icipal power, however, 1-as pone out the window along with :e old local-government struc- ture where power was vested in 73 councils District councils will TIO Ic'iger control allocation of mu- nicipal housing, formerly a sure source of votes. Public housing now is the domain of a national Ar.d JOD discrimination is barred by la.u removing an- other source r: local political power. The forthcoming elections are dominated by "The Irish Ques- Northern Ire- land should stay part of the United Kingdom or whether it should be merged with the Irish republic to the south, an end which Irish Republican Army guerrillas are trying to acliieve by force. The Unionists, led by former prime minister Brian Faulkner, 52. are for the British link. Un- ionist di led by William Craig, also a former prime min- ister, would prefer to go it alone. Various brands of CathoUc Republican Labor, considerable Nationalist party- are at heart in favor of a united Ireland. In between are the union- based Labor party and the recently formed Alliance party, both embracing middle-road Catholics and Protestants and both prepared to stick with the United Kingdom. i The Social Democratic and j Labor party's decision to take I whatever it can win in the new councils has brought charges of betrayal from hard- Line republican elements. This is because the Social Democrats two years ago pledged to ab- stain frcm the political process while IRA suspects were inter- ned without trial. The party ap- parently now believes that Brit- ain has established an adequate system of judicial supervision of internment orders. MARXISTS WON'T SIT The Republican Clubs, politi- cal front of the Marxist Official IRA. are offering 84 candidates but say they will not take seats until internment is ended. Sinn Fein, political front of the militant IRA Provisional, logically enough is the whole election process. The organization is banned and any- one campaigning under a Sinn Fein label would be liable to ar- rest. Militant republicanism will not be entirely unrepresented. Frank McManus. a member of the British Parliament who is a friend of IRA chief David O'CoTUiell, hrr formed what he calls a "loose association" of j indeoendents to press the re- i publican i iew. j Their main effort will lie re- served for the June assembly Crop diseases new strains TORONTO (CP1 Scientists have developed ser-d crops that Mill give extremely high yields, but there's a hitch. These high-yielding strains are particularly vulnerable to diseases, and so a single crop epidemic can practically wipe out a nation's crop in one sea- son. "That's what happened the 1970 corn blight epidemic in the United States." says Dr. James Horsfall, a plant scien- tists at the Connecticut Agricul- ural Experiment Station in New Haven, Conn. And it could happen again, Bill limits war powers 'API The Seiate foreign relations corn- mi ttcc approved 15 to 0 Thurs- day a bill to limit the war pow- ers of the president. The measure, identical to one passed by the Senate last year, would allow a president, with- out prior approval of Congress, to use IT S. troops in combat for only 30 days to repel attack or the threat of attack on U.S. forces or territory, and to res- cue Americans endangered abroad or at sea. The bill was reintroduced this year by Senator Jacob K. Javits (Rep. N.Y.) with 57 Seaate co- sponsors. As approved by the Senate committee, it would not apply to "present hostilities." Javits said it therefore would not re- quire a halt in the bombing of Cambodia, but would prevent remtroduetion of U.S. military activity in Vietnam or Laos without approval of Congress. A House foreign affairs sub- committee has approved a sim- ilar bill which would prohibit commitment or enlargement of forces in hostilities abroad for longer than 120 days without specific approval of Congress. Terrorists defect BANGKOK, Thailand (AP) The situation in southern Thai- land has improved greatly be- cause of defections to the gov- ernment by terrorists, the mili- tary commander of the region reported Thursday. Maj.-Gen. Snnt Chitpslima said about (XX) IcrroMfN have surrcrrierecl since 1971 Nearly all of them have been rehabilitated and re- leased. possibly in Canada with wheat, he told the annual meeting of the Genetics Society of Canada Wednesday. Dr. Horsfall was the chair- man of a crop-vulnerabihty study earned out for the U.S. government bv the National Academy of Sciences in 1971. CORN" TOOK OVER A popular new strain of high- yield corn became the only strain planted all across the country and well up into Can- ada, but only a few scientists recognized that it was suscep- tible to a fungus-like disease, he said. Following the 1970 epidemic, which reached as far north as southern Manitoba, scientists came up with a new strain, less productive but resistant to the fungus. It happened in Ireland in the whan potatoes, all of one strain, were attacked by blight, and it could happen again in North America, where other crops are in the same position as corn was in 1969. Dr. Horsfall said all the mil-' let in North America is from three varieties of seed, 96 per cent of all peas come from two seed varieties, 76 per cent of string beans from three vari- eties and 72 percent of the po-' tatoes from four varieties. Nearly three-quarters of all corn still is only from six van-. eties and half the wheat is from nine varieties. In some Canadian provinces almost all the wheat is from i one particular j makes it a "potentially ex- j plosive'' situation if an epi- i demic should start, he said in an interview. However, it wouid be impos- sible not to have such situ- ations, he said. "We need the food." so crops must be grown from the best- yielding varieties. Agricultural research agencies must therefore be set up to keep a step ahead of dis- eases. He recommended that "gene pools" should be set up by na-' tional agencies. Gene pools would be from strains of wild, unproductive hut hardy varieties of crops. These usually are thrown out by scientists because their inner-1 itcd characteristics don't pro-' chirr- high yields or other dosir-' cable qualtics. but they might bo the protection ncorbcl .some time in the future to save a na- ion's crops from being wiped i out. elections, as will that of Craig, and Rev. Ian Paisley, hard-line Protestant and militant anti-re- publican. Electioneering costs money, something the splinter groups are lacking. On the Protestant side, Faulk- ner is meeting charges of treachery because of liis quali- fied acceptance of British plans for Ulster's future. He was one of the foremost critics of Britain's decision to take over direct rule in March, 1972. Now he is ready to work for Britain's plan for a new as- sembly, shorn, at least tempo- rarily, of the former parlia- ment's powers over security. He is prepared to accept a de- gree of power-sharing with the Catholic one-third of the 1.5 mil- lion population, giving Catholic deputies a strong voice in policy committees and part of the ex- ecutive. But last week, to counter un- rest in the ranks, he was ob- liged to set forth that power- sharing could never be enter- tained with those who are not basically loyal to the idea of a separate Northern Ireland linked with Britain. That, at this moment, would rule out a great many Catholic politicals. SPRING FASHION STARTS TOMORROW A.M.
