O TRIBUNE 5 Irish Lawyer Looks To L/.S. For Support By COLIN FROST i Pretj Write r N ° rlhern Ire - Lawyer William Craig is heading for the United States soon to seek American backing for the support of Protestant rights, as he sees them, in Northern Ireland. Details are not yet complete but In essence Craig will be treading an old path. Bernadette Devlin, Ian Paisley and , a host of Irish leaders traditionally have looked across the Atlantic for support. Craig, 47, has had a leading role on Ireland's troubled stage and is bidding for still bigger things. As leader of the Ulster vanguard Movement he has control of a potentially decisive force. "We have the power to make this country ungovernable," he has said. He supported a two- day strike which closed down all industry and commerce last month. ' That strike was meant as a demonstration of the power the Protestant majority may wield if it feels it is being sold against its will into a union with the Irish Republic, which is mainly Roman. Catholic. It was meant, ioo, as a protest against Britain's suspcn-, sibn of the provincial Parliament, for 51 years in Protestant control. Craig demands that the Parliament should be restored-and restored with such powers that Britain never again will be able to take control. As he sees it; the wishes of the North's one million protestants override those of the half million Catholics, many of whom would be happier under Dublin rule. "If in the end the majority ·will is overridden," he says "we will use the force of arms, That is the ultimate." This ultimate may be a long way off, since the majority will is-far from clear. Protestants are divided between Craig's conception of virtual independence and the rival idea of total integration into the British sys- lemas advocated by Ian Paisley and with reservations by Brian Faulkner, the former prime minister. At the moment, however, Craig controls the big battalions and has mustered crowds of 50,000 and more in his support. One of his main allies is the Hev. Martin Smyth a Presbyterian minister who is Belfast grand master of the Orange Lodge. Despite his crowd appeal Craig is' far from the compelling orator of the Irish tradition. He talks in a monotone, his voice sometimes .falling away to a whisper. His appeal lies not in oratory but in what his followers see as logic--that if Catholics run the Irish Republic, Protestants should run the North" and if the Catholics here don't like it they should quit. Craig entered the' provincial Parliament in 1362 as Unionist member for Lame, a seaport. He was quickly brought into ex- Premier Terrence O'Neill's cab- out inet and served as minister of home affairs. Craig's house in a Belfast suburb, with its Union Jack flying in the garden, h a s itse'lf twice been the target for guerrilla attack -- gasoline 'bombs three years ago, a failed gelignite bomb last year. Craig was a British tailgun- ner in World War II. His philosophy now is that Britain should pursue against the wartime pol icy of unconditional surrender. He demands from the British a single declaration: "We are going to beat the terrorists into the ground." Failing that, he has an alternative. "If weak security policies are to be followed, as they have been, the authorities and people will have to consider counterterrorism." and that, he leaves little doubt, would mean spreading the bombings and the gunnings to Dublin and other cities of the Irish Republic.
