Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 24, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 26 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, Octobtr 24, 1973 r Optimism replacing chronic gloom in Ulster By KEVIN DOYLE LONDON (CP) For the first time in nearly four years of turmoil, a genuine sense of optimism seems to be slowly replacing the chronic gloom and despondency of Northern Ireland. Violence has declined to its lowest ebb for months. There are faint indications that rival.- warring factions in Ulster may at last be prepar- ing to take part in a new con- stitutional Assembly and British troops are even mak- ing plans to reduce their strength in a few key centres. While bitter experience has hardened the North's political leaders against any rash promises or hopes of peace, even they are showing some signs of a new sense of urgency in cooperating to find solutions to their vast array of problems. Veteran commentators agree that the most promising development during the last several months is the recent surprising improvement in relations among the main fac- tions in the Assembly. QUARRELS REDUCED The parties mainly Roman Catholic Social Democratic and Labor Party Protestant Loyalists led by Rev. Ian Paisley and Unionists led by former premier Brian have not been able to agree on the establishment of a new power-sharing executive. But the invective and bitterness of earlier meetings recently has given way to far more con- structive forms of discussion. Whether the decline in vio- lence is a cause of the im- provement in political relations or a result of it is an open question. But there has been a sharp decrease in the of shootings and bombings throughout the area, particu- larly in Belfast, the main theatre of activity in the cur- rent conflict. As usual, the British army claims credit for the lull by contending that the troops have made severe inroads into the outlawed Irish Republican Army and arrested most of the top leadership. However, a more plausible explanation seems to be that the minority Catholics have brought pressure on the IRA to ease up in its terrorist campaign in order to give the assembly a chance to work Military casualties are at the lowest level since early 1971 and army strength has been reduced to men from a year ago. The Loyalist Party appears to some observers to have become the greatest threat to political stability in Ulster. Its avowed aim is to refuse to take part in any form of government short of one which has all the power of the old Stormont parliament dis- solved by the British in 1971. The Loyalists are pledged to make the current assembly, with severely limited powers, unworkable. But Paisley, after making a shambles of the first few As- sembly sessions, now has adopted a low-key 'attitude and has suggested a com- promise might be found which would allow him to sit on the executive even if it contained some Catholics as well. Most observers believe he is afraid of a coalition forming between the SDLP and the Unionists which would free; his Loyalists out of power completely and leave them a relatively small, isolated "crank" party on the fringes of the establishment.
