6A -- Max I ». i *7 4 Sunday Gazette-Mail Clwiwwi, West Virginia -- LIAM COSGRAVE Shinier If'illf Irish Bombing Slammed . .Veir VnrA- Times Service ·DUBLIN -- The bombs that killed at least 28 persons in the Irish Republic Friday and gravely injured dozens more have shattered, perhaps permanently, the mental barriers tfi'at citizens here kept against the disasters to the North. 'Prime Minister Liam Cosgrave said it Friday night when he observed sorrowfully that the bombing would bring home "what the people in Northern Ireland have been suffering for five long years." "..The tendency here not to think about the problems of the North and the consequent lack of any strong public pressure to take action against the gunmen operating from the republic's territory comes from something more complex than complacency. ? Partly it was the residual sympathy for the tradition of violent action to obtain a United" Ireland. Partly it was the pessimistic conclusion that tinly a final armed showdown between Northern Protestants and Roman Catholics would solve the problem, and the natural tendency to think as little as possible about such a terrifying and dangerous prospect. · This attitude may change flow that Northern Protestant extremists have shown the ability to operate here -- nothing has been said officially but police here say privately that there is no doubt the bombers belonged to some Protestant activist group, though they do not know which one. Storm Satellite In Good Orbit CAPE CANAVERAL. Fla. _ w _ The world's newest storm-hunting satellite was reported in an excellent orbit Saturday after ground controllers worked through the night to correct a mechanical malfunction. Officials at Kennedy Space Center said the Synchronous Meterological Satellite was only 15 degrees off its planned stationary orbit. A lack of thrust from a Delta rocket at its 5:31 a.m. launching on Friday had left the satellite's orbit 2,200 miles too low for its planned mission.

Release Asked For Irish Soldiers DUBLIN (AP) - The government asked the United Nations Saturday to release more than 300 Irish soldiers from the Middle East peacekeeping force to man border posts following the worst bombings in almost five years of Irish sectarian feuding. It said the troops will be needed to man new checkpoints along the border with Northern Ireland to stop and search all cars driving into the Republic from the North. The checkpoints were part of an intensification of security along the 260-mile border with Northern Ireland, the main scene of the violence that spilled over into the republic Friday, killing 23 persons and wounding 150. At the United Nations, Irish Ambassador Eamonn Kennedy telephoned his government's request to Secretary- General Kurt Waldheim and confirmed it in a letter, which was made public. "After long and careful deliberation following Friday's bomb outrages, the government of Ireland feel that the exceptional strains at present imposed on the Irish security forces make this step necessary." the letter said. THE LATEST U.N. report shows that last Monday there were 323 Irishmen in the U.N. Emergency Force in the Middle East. As Ireland counted the cost of the bombings, informed sources said the government was expected to press for tougher laws against Irish Republican Army guerrillas. The explosions came without warning. At the same time another bomb killed five per- sons in Monaghan, a quiet country town near the border with Northern Ireland. That explosion also came without warning. About the only thing security authorities knew for sure was that the cars used in the bombings were stolen from Protestant areas of Belfast. -- Our 14th Year With The-Same Quality Backyard SWIMMING POOL The Average Homeowner Can Afford Below and Above Ground Model Pools On Display Complete Line of Pool Chemicals and Accessories LACY'S Modern Swimming Pools 933 Woodhaven Delias. 744-2711 * :0 o r °° .00 e COV V^VNV s o^ 0 %.^ \\\a° 09 -^5?^ ; YM^ o^ss-«··*· _.,^o^. 0 v..«-°r.: aS^f ,,*$ 6 ° ^ ^ v0 ?
