Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 25, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Wodncsdoy, Novcmbor 25, 1970 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 37 Plans under way for 50lh anniversary celebration Ulster to mark birthday in 1971 of separate existence from Britain By CAROL KENNEDY BELFAST (CP) Ulster is preparing for1 UK SOlli anni- versary next year of ils sepa- rate existence under Hie Brit- ish crown, but its Expo-style festivities may take plaec against the ironic background of British troops keeping the peace. One cabinet minister of the Northern Ireland Parliament at Stormont told a reporter that ho believes British sol- diers might have to stay in the troubled province for two or even three years. Nobody hero sees an early end to the violence that inter- mittently erupts in working- class areas of Belfast and Londonderry, legacy of 300 years of sectarian bitterness between Protestant and Roman Catholic, each camp feeling itself beleaguered by an alien tradition. It's true, as officials defen- sively point out, that the riot- ing is confined to the neigh- borhood of two or three streets in the capital and one small section of Londonderry. streets around Belfast's city hall without a flicker of awareness that mobs are stoning each other and burn- ing municipal buses a mile or so away. HEAVY WITH HATRED But it's alarming when you catch the atmosphre of those mean and shabby streets, heavy with ancient hatreds. Venturing down the Shankill Road, home of Protestant shipyard and other manual workers, one night after mobs had fought British soldiers there, a couple of Common- wealth reporters found a sul- len, sinister mood just wailing for another spark to explode it, The smell of burned build- ings and riot-control gas hung in the air. The young British servicemen in their battle- dress, standing by armored vehicles with rifles in their hands, remained poker-faced while girls taunted them from the doorways with obsceno suggestions. It hardly seemed possible that this "was part of the United Kingdom. Later a cab-driver all the trou- ble had started because the British had posted troops in the Shankill Koad from a Liv- erpool most of them are Catholics, biased against the Shankill people." The Scots or the apparently non-denominational parachute regiment were acceptable, he added. OPTED FOU CROWN Yet one Unionist cabinet minister, a bluff 60-year-old on the moderate wing of his party, said in an informal din- ner-table conversation that the current troubles were "child's play" compared to his memories of the 1920s. Then Northern Ireland was fighting for its constitutional survival, having opted to re- main part of the United King- dom while southern Ireland chose home rule. Long before that, sectarian riots had torn Ulster apart, starting soon after the Catho- lic Emancipation Act of 1829 and reaching a bloody cres- cendo in 1886, the year Lord Randolph Churchill, father of Sir Winston, torpedoed Glad- stone's plan for Irish home rule by declaring "Ulster will fight, and Ulster will be right." Fiery clergymen added fuel to the'flames through the 19th century. A Belfast civil serv- ant pointed out a statue known locally as "The Black man" and said it was that of Rev. Hugh llanna, a hellfire Protestant preacher of the 1830s whose serrrrons helped fan violence on several occa- sions. "Paisley's not the first mad cleric we've had, by any he said, referring to licv. Ian Paisley, now a mem- ber of both the Northern Ire- land and Westminster parlia- ments under his own Protes- tant Unionist ticket. Paisley, a magnetic orator News roundup TUITION ON CREDIT ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) The University of New Mex- ico .has made arrangements with two major credit card companies for cardholders to charge tuition, books, housing, athletic events, concert hall and golf course fees during the school year. FOR SALE SALISBURY, Rhodesia (AP) For sale at each: three Mississippi-type river- boats. Until recently the stern- wheelers transported sugar on the lower Zambezi in neighbor- ing Portuguese Mozambique. A new railway now does the job. BUILD UP RAWALPINDI (AP) The commander-in-chief of the Paki- stani navy, Vice-Admiral Mu- saffar Hasan, reported his force maintains an "effective deter- rent" to the Indian navy and is building up a submarine fleet. His statement was made in Chittagong, on the Bay of Ben- gal in East Pakistan, in reply to questions about a reported In- dian navy buildup. whose anti-Catholic diatribes are described by some here as "performances rather than is a great hero along the Shankill Road. Women there told Common- wealth visitors that Ulster would be a better place "if there were more like him." The official Presbyterian Church in Ulster disowned him some time ago, but his congregations are full of well- dressed middle-class people and his famous "silent collec- collected in a paid for a spanking new church on the outskirts of Belfast. Paisley, a hulking man with a booming voice, is regarded with a kind of horrified fasci- nation and distrust by many Ulster politicians. A govern- ment minister muttered that he wouldn't care to be in the same room with Mm "without a Ihird party present." But this same politician said he could see only two men likely to inherit the prime minister's mantle should James Chichester-Clark's moderate administration col- and right- winger William Craig, former home affairs minister sacked by Cliichcslcr-Clark's prede- cessor, Terence O'Neill. SOUTH MISTRUSTED Craig, whose heavy-handed tactics with a Catholic civil rights march two years ago helped spark off Ulster's first major religious riots since the 1930s, has a rapidly growing following among young Union- ists. Public speeches by him and Paisley guarantee enor- mous crowds. At bottom, a profound dis- trust of the Catholic republic to the south still moulds Uls- ter politics a half-century after partition. It's hard to see how the age-old antipathies can bo eradicated, even with UK; cau- tious reforms now proceeding in such fields as municipal housing. Catholics, one-third of Ulster's 1.5 million popula- tion, still arc mainly working- class ami have made scarcely an imprint on the levers of power and influence. Where the religious frictions Ignite waiting tinder is manual workers who leave school before the moderating influence of higher education. Their armed-camp altitudes are fostered at home among the painted Union Jacks and republican tricolors that taunt each other in those streets. sad WARM SKI FASHIONS Speed down the slopes in fashion- able sM wear that is also slyled for warmth.
