Officers said Albert Norman, 21, of Unions Opposing Health Policies Threaten Strike LONDON (AP) -- Prime Minister Edward Heath's Conservative government faces a day-by-day challenge from 600,DOO militant unionists opposing his anti-inflation policies to hold down wage increases. The unions are threatening daily strikes or slowdowns over a broad range of the nation's economy to force a change. The government now limits weekly wage increases to about $2.40 plus 4 per cent of the wages. Gas workers are expected to expand their two-week slowdown, which has .cut gas supplies in the industrial Midlands.

Lynch, a mild-mannered and retiring lawyer, loses Wednesday's general election, his job as prime minister of the Irish Republic will go to Liam Cosgrave, another mild-mannered and retiring lawyer. Flamboyance counts for nothing in modern Irish politics. The Irish these days iike to see themselves as sober, industrious and sensible people.

His-party first took power after the partition ot Ireland in 1922, But in the past 40 years it has held office for only'six years, and then only .at -the lead of coalition governments. Cosgrave now is bidding for power again in coalition with Laborites led by Brendan Corish. Irish elections are hard to predict, but the professionals give the coalition a real chance of ousting Lynch's Fianna Fail, or Soldiers of Destiny. RIGHT CREDENTIALS Cosgrave, the son of a former felt he could not oppose the legislation. In the end he held the party together and got it to abstain from the vote.

OWN PROBLEMS Twice last year, however, Cosgrave had his own party problems. A rebel faction looked likely to oppose Irish entry into the European Common Market., a cause which, Cosgrave passionately supported. And he was close to splitting the party in December over Lynch's bill to toughen the law against the IRA.

Cosgrave had been demanding action against the IRA and Buys $20,000 Boat ·MIAMI BEACH, Fla.
