J PAGE A I THE EVENING SUN, BALTIMORE, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 22, 1969 PEOPLE IN THE NEWS North r Ccrugi eland's Prime Minister it In War Of Prejudice feeffast, Northern Ireland W Terence Marne O'Neill, the reformer in the hot seat of Irish politics, is a seasoned ex-soldier st. the center of a battle he detests. , This is his sixth year as prime minister of the six counties that make up Northern Ireland. It promises to be as turbulent as anyjn the country's troubled history. Despite the appeals of church andlpolitical leaders, the old di visions of Catholic and Protes tant once more are stirring the 1,500,000 residents. O'Neill, 54, bases his hope for betterment on the middle ground of men of both religions interested in civic peace. " Extremists Fan Prejudice They are, he says, the great majority. But in Ireland, where prejudice is easily fanned by extremists of both religions, and political agitators of none, the road to conciliation is hard. O'Neill is leader of the pre dominantly Protestant Unionist parte which has ruled in North ernireland without a break since the province was formed in 1821. The party is dedicated above all to. maintaining Northern Ireland's union with Britain and to fighting off those who seek union with, the largely Catholic repub-lidTto the south. The Unionists are allied to the ' A I iTkmt'ir'iiiiitmlSh Aim nun mi .mm , TERENCE O'NEILL British Conservative party. Un like the Conservative party, they draw their main voting strength from the working class. Party Affiliation Belfast's shipyard workers voted Unionist because they are frotestants. The opposition Na tionalist and Labor parties are identified with the Catholic cause. v The Unionist government holds 37 of the 52 seats in the provincial Parliament in Belfast but is under, pressure from all sides. , The Catholic-oriented civil rights movement is stepping up demands for reform In local government systems which it says discriminate against me Roman Catholic minority. Protestant extremists de- nounce any concession to me Catholics as weakness and treachery. People stand ready . for riot every weekend and Britain's La bor government, which retains a supervisory voice in Northern rish affairs, is pressing for evi dence that promised reforms are on the way. English-Educated Aristocrat O'Neill, at the center of. the whirlpool, is an English-educat ed aristocrat who fought with the Irish Guards in World War I two brothers were killed. Like most Irishmen who 'ought in the British army, he retains his military designation in private life and Is always called Captain O Neili. After the war, O Neill followed his father into politics. By the lme he reached the premiership he had 17 years of parliament ry experience. O Neiu, married with a son and a daughter, is a shy and dapper man with a nervous augh. The charge of weakness is hurled at him from two sides. Extreme Protestant support ers of the union with Britain cry "O'Neill must go" as their bat tle slogan. They maintain he. should crack down more strongly on civil rights marches. The civil rights movement it self charges that O'Neill is weak in failing to override objections inside his own party and give a concrete pledge of "one-man, one-vote" in local elections where votes now are tied to property.
