KEN AND PEGGIE TALLMADGE Owners and Managers Private Irish Armies Step Up Recruitment By Colin Frost BELFAST, Northern Ireland -- UP) -- British talk of withdrawing troops from Northern Ireland has stirred recruiting for both Protestant and Roman Catholic private armies, an informed source said Saturday. But thinking on both sides appears at this moment to be entirely defensive, the informant added. He gave no figures in the recruiting drive. Britain currently has 16,500 troops in Northern Ireland, and is discussing withdrawing some of them. REVIVAL SERVICES JUNE 3-9 (MOH.-SUH.) WITH DR. JOHN W. McCORMICK (Native of W. Va.)

Home Secretary Roy Jenkins, confronted with the choice of a storm of opposition in Parliament if he sent the sisters back to a Northern Ireland j a i l or the t h r e a t of "devastating consequences" from the Irish Republican Army if the girls died in London, said he was "deeply concerned" that the lives of the sisters should be needlessly lost. "But I cannot find it right to agree to their demands." For the sisters, Dolours, 23, and Marian, 20, it was the 13th day they had taken no food at all, surviving on water only. Until early last week they were force-fed but the Home Office said this had been discontinued- CHEMICAL BANK WILL OBSERVE NEW HOURS IN ORDER TO BETTER SERVE OUR CUSTOMERS EFFECTIVE MONDAY, JUNE 3,1974 LOBBY HOURS 9:00 AM TO 3:00 PM-MONDAYS, TUESDAYS, WEDNESDAYS AND FRIDAYS 9:OOAMT05:OOPM-THURSDAYS 9:00 AM TO NOON-SATURDAYS DRIVE-IN HOURS 8:30 AM TO 3:00 PM-MONDAYS, TUESDAYS AND WEDNESDAYS 8:30 AM TO 5:00 PM-THURSDAYS AND FRIDAYS 8:30 AM TO NOON-SATURDAYS AND TRUST COMPANY SOUTH CHARLESTON 'One Of The Valley's Two Finest Banks' Member F.D.I.C. DETROIT - (AP) - The United Auto Workers convention that begins today in Los Angles is likely to pass a resolution enabling UAW President Leonard Woodcock to lead the 1976 auto industry negotiations. A proposal to lengthen union officers' terms from two to three years on both the local and national levels probably will win approval, u n i o n Embassy Visitors Harassed (C) New York Times Service MOSCOW -- Soviet policemen reportedly have tightened controls and stepped up harassment around the American Embassy, intercepting and sometimes holding and interrogating Soviet citizens, Americans and even diplomats trying to enter the embassy. "There are virtually daily incidents, daily drag-aways," complained one American Embassy official. "This crude treatment is hardly in keeping with the spirit of detente. We consider these denials of access as violations of the Soviet-American consular convention." Saturday gray-uniformed militia guards stopped Arnold . Ozolins, an American seaman who came here in 1962 and was forced to take out a Soviet passport as a condition of visiting his elderly mother in Riga. Ozolins' wife and family live in Maspeth, N.Y., and he has been trying in vain to get back to them in America for years. He was stopped and interrogated for about 15 minutes Saturday about entering the embassy, although consular officials consider him an American citizen entitled to free access. Friday, Soviet guards physically blocked Alexander Brenner, scientific counselor of the West German Embassy, when he was going to obtain an American visa. Guards held him while questioning him about whom he was going to see and why. They would not release him until he produced documents showing chat he was a diplomat. On Memorial Day, a Rumanian diplomat was turned away by Soviet guards. sources indicate. That would enable Woodcock to conduct the next round of bargaining with the auto makers. Also scheduled for discussion is a motion to reaffiliate with the AFL-CIO. The union split from the federation in 1968 over differences in union policies and social activism, the UAW charging in both instances that the federation was becoming too conservative. Sources said the convention is not likely to act on the matter but is expected to leave a final decision to the UAW International Executive Board, which is believed to favor reaffiliation. Woodcock, who took over after Walter Reuther's death in 1970, is expected to win almost unopposed election to a third term. Whatever the length of the 63-year-old unionist's next term, it will be his last because the UAW does not allow its menbers to seek offices once they are 65. If the length of term is extended, his term would include the. important 1976 contract year, when pacts with General Motors, Chrysler and Ford expire. It is also a national election year and politi- · cally active union officials want strong leadership during the period. The convention also marks the retirement of Olga Madar, the first and only woman ever elected to the executive board. She will be replaced, probably by another woman from the UAW international staff. The 1.5-million member union is having a tough year because many of its members, particularly auto workers, are out of work due to production cutbacks. The convention runs through Friday. Drugs, Gas Mixed A recent study by the U. S. Department of Transportation reveals that 24 per cent of fatally injured drivers tested were found to be using drugs. The study was based on research on 191 car crashes. Mail Trucks The U. S. Postal Service has ordered 350 electric delivery vehicles, more for their anti- polluting qualities than their gasoline-saving advantages. Some 300 will be assigned to the Los Angeles-San Bernardino, Calif., smog corridor.
