Women's Chain Stalls Violence In Belfast Riot BELFAST (CP) In troubled Northern Ireland, women of al religious sects have been joining together in an effort to bring peace to their own neighbor- hoods. Their "confrontation" tactics are simple. When a riot flares the women appear, link arms and form a feminine chain be- tween the two male. They are women of all classes and ages: blue-jeaned teen-agers and grey-haired grandmothers, Protestants and Roman Catholics, workin and housewives. And the tactic generally works. As the Belfast Telegraph commented recently, "t h'e s e frail chains bring a touch ot sanity to a mad situation." Would-be rioters usually are concerted by the female picket line, fidget uncertainly, then disperse. A recent incident toolc place in the Unity Flats section of Belfast, droups of neighborhood youths began stoning each other, then bombarded police when they arrived. Suddenly a group of women appeared and formed their human chain. "We soon got (lie boys quieted Mary Lockrin a gro- cery clerk, said later. "Some of them were annoyed at didn't want the women in the fight. "We just wanted to stop the trouble because the overwhelm- ing majority of people here want peace." The women's actions apear totally spontaneous. There is no organization or movement as such. The women say they are simply fed up with male viol- ence. "When I heard the women were going out, I went out to join said housewife Jenny Eliott. "I don't know whose idea it was. I think ev- erybody had the idea at the same time. In about 10 minutes the trouble had stopped and I went off to do my shopping. "It's the first time I've done It, but I'll do it again if there is more trouble." A finger was pointed at gov- ernment in anol.her resolution to lake upon itself the task of collecting and distributing con- sumer information. Programs should also be set up, aimed al each class level. This informa- laws from legal language inlo lay terms for the public to un- derstand. ing complete is with the chicken market. Whole chickens for sale must be graded and priced ac- cordingly, but cut-up chicken can be all grades combined, said Mrs. Schultz. Industry lias a bad habit said lion also includes interpreting Mrs. Schultz, of not providing enough specific information. For example, some garments have cleaning labels which read, treat as any line fabric. A board is sel up al every level of government to deal What is a fine fabric? with industrial problems, said! People at a retail level are Mrs. Schultz. Therefore, a con- not provided with enough in- sumers' bureau should also be formation aboul thetr products set up to deal with their prob- be able to advice consumers lems. After all, industry can not exist without consumers. More legislation could also be brought in concerning health, quantities, quality, false claims and monopoly situations. A good example of a legislation hot be- salisfaclorily. Mrs. Schullz sail) this was made evident during a local CAC survey. The consumers have the re- sponsibility to be informed, said Mrs. Schultz. They can't expect someone to protect, inform and ibcum ira conu a in uan Anniii I. MEATS 327-5295 MItS. FRANC'S SCHULTZ decide for them, all the time. They must arm themselves with accurate knowledge and judg- ment. All delegates, even business- men, were agiinst advertising geared to children. It creates wanls that have nothing to do with needs and children pres- sure parents to buy against I their better judgment. I It is true, said Mrs. Schullz, thai no one listens to the com- plaints of the single consumer. Only organized, marsive pres- sure is noticed. Membership in the CAC has tripled during Ihe past year to indicate people's awareness of badly needed consumer information, said Mrs. S'chullz. She said the conference wa a success in that the groups government, industry and cor sumers came to realize eac others viewpoints and expect lions. It is now going to be u to various industrial associi lions to keep in touch with go' eminent and local consume! groups concerning changes an I thinking in their operalions.

DEAR ANN .LANDERS: I would like to add a word to ;he letter from woman whose dear friend, a doctor's wife, died of cancer. Sixteen years ago I lad cancer of the cervix. The pap test was virtually un- known in those days. Millions of womon died because they had no idea they had it was too late. After my operation the doctor told me he couldn't be sure all the diseased tissue had been permanently removed, and we'd have to wait five years before I could be declared 'cured." Thank God I was allowed to live and raise my young family. It is impossible to describe those five years. The fear of death hung over me like a black cloud, yet I had to present a cheerful face to my family and friends. Every time I went to the doctor for a checkup, I prayed, "Dear God, don't let him find anything." Now I can look back at those years as a bad dream. I was lucky. And because 1 was lucky I feel a responsibility to alert women everywhere to the importance of an annual checkup. The pap test takes only a minute and it could mean the difference between life and My Blessings DEAR COUNTING: Breast cancel' is the Number One killer of women in the United States. Cancer of the cervix is second. The pap test is painless, quick and inexpensive Every woman should have a pap test once a year. The chances for complete cure of cervical cancer, if detected early, are excellent. 1 urge every female who reads this to make an appointment for an examination now if it has been over a year since she was last checked by her gynecologist. Confidential lo In Love With An Independent Guy: It's very difficult for a person to stand on his own two feet when one foot is always in his mouth. Tact and judgment do not diminish a person's independence nor do they dilute his integrity. How will you know when the real thihg comes along? Ask Ann Landers.
