THE British Press Ass o c i a t i o n q u o t e d I R A sources as saying Prime Minister H a r o l d Wilson played a major role in arranging the talks Sunday between top government representatives and the Provisional Sinn Fein, the political arm of the IRA's Provisional w i n g . The n e w s agency said the, sources did not clarify Wilson's exact role. However, they said before he took office in February 1074 he met IRA leaders in Dublin and proposed a policy which would allow for gradual British with- d r a w a l f r o m Northern Ireland. British officials, reporting Sunday's meeting, did not say when or where il was being held. An IRA source said two Sinn Fe ; '.i members w e r e d r a w n from its Ulster executive, but he declined to name them. T h e R e v . W i l l i a m Arlow, one of the Church of Ireland clergymen who assisted in the 25-day IRA cease-fire that ended at at the scene of the talks but declined to say whether he 'sat in. After the meeting he told newsmen: "So far so good. I am still hopeful." HE SAID the IRA's ruling council was likely to meet soon to decide whether to resume the cease-fire. It called off the t r u c e on grounds that Merlyn Rees, Britain's minister for the province, did not respond adquately to demands for a general amnesty for IRA suspects interned without trial and a pledge to eventually w i t h d r a w a l l B r i t i s h troops from Northern Ireland. During the cease-fire Recs released around 50 of more than 500 terrorist suspects detained without trial and said thai Britain's military presence in Northern Ireland could be scaled down only if there was a genuine end to the violence. Some observers believe he may now be ready to release more detainees. But he has shown no sign of m e e t i n g the I R A ' s b a s i c d e m a n d s for a general amnesty and for a British statement of intent to withdraw from Northern Ireland.

Home heating costs are up, regardless of the fuel used. So is the cost of producing electricity. The price of foreign oil used in electric generating plants has more than tripled in the past 18 months. And we must use foreign oil to meet rigid air pollution requirements. Electricity is involved in most heating systems indirectly or directly, so budget your use of 1 heating wisely. There are several ways to do it. Here are some suggestions: D Consider lowering the temperature setting. It could cost about 28% less for heating to keep the temperature at 68° instead of 72? D It makes sense to turn your heat off when you're away from home. However, in freezing areas a 40° setting is advisable.
