BELFAST, Northern Ireland (AP) — Northern Ireland's provincial government of moderate Protestants and Roman Catholics collapsed today, toppled by a two-week general strike of Protestant militants who refused to retreat before the British army. Brian Faulkner, head of the provincial government, or Executive, and other Protestant moderates in his administration quit after the British government representative in Northern Ireland refused to let them talk with the strikers. "We are not prepared to see our country paralyzed and to see our people die," Faulkner said in a resignation statement. "That is what would have happened if this strike continued." Roman Catholic members of the administration, who had threatened to quit last week before British troops were brought in to break the strike, did not formally resign. But a British government statement said the provincial government could not continue without the Protestant members, and added that there "is now no statutory basis for the Northern Ireland Executive." Its fall was a clear victory for the striking militants who had demanded the end of power sharing with Catholics and the scrapping of an agreement for closer relations with the largely Catholic Irish republic to the south. Some political observers felt the strike would now end. But others said that might depend on the next move of Prime - Minister Harold Wilson's government in London. Wilson had two alternatives. He could ask his minister in Northern Ireland, Merlyn Rees, to try to set up a stopgap provincial government, or Wilson could formally declare the reintroduction of direct rule of Northern Ireland from London. If he chose the stopgap Executive formula, the Protestants would undoubtedly continue their strike. However, their leaders' New Minister — The Rev. Ernest W. Larson, now pastor of Trinity United Methodist church at Cedar Rapids, will assume his duties as minister of First United Methodist church in Carroll Sunday. June 30. Mr. Larson will succeed the Rev. Dr. Francis L. Brockman who is moving to Des Moines. Mr. Larson has served the Cedar Rapids church for six vears. Awards Presented at KHS Graduation Israel Cabinet Meets to Decide on Peace Action JERUSALEM (AP) — Henry A. Kissinger's month-long Middle East peace mission was at its most critical stage today as Israel's government meets for a fateful decision on a troop separation pact with Syria. The United States secretary of state emerged smiling early this morning from a two-hour conference with the Israeli negotiating team, where he reported on Monday's marathon talks with Syrian President Hafez Assad. It was Kissinger's 12th trip to Damascus in this current trip. Shimon Peres, the Israeli information minister, told newsmen after the meeting at Premier Golda Meir's office that Israel would give Kissinger its final decision today on the agreement that would separate the warring Syrian and Israeli armies on the Golan Heights, where fighting has raged for nearly three months. Asked what the decision involved, Peres replied: "A package deal ... All parts of an agreement." "We had a very detailed meeting, the result of which is that the cabinet will meet to make a decision," added Israeli Foreign Minister Abba Eban. Kissinger did not speak to newsmen. Reports from sources close to the negotiations indicated it would be a difficult decision for the Israelis, and that Kissinger stood a strong chance of ending his 32-day peace marathon without a disengagement pact. U.S. officials said draft agreements were already drawn up, but there were blank spaces where issues remained to be resolved. The major remaining problems reportedly were the size of a buffer zone between the separated armies and Israeli- sought safeguards against Palestinian terrorist raids from Syria. Kissinger told newsmen earlier that the llth-hour snags could push back his departure from the Middle East by another day — until Wednesday. But in no case will the secretary return to Damascus, aides said. Suspense mounted as Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko flew into the Syrian capital for a planned two-day visit shortly before Kissinger's departure Monday. They did not meet. Gromyko, in a brief statement distributed by the Syrian news agency, described Moscow as "standing firm in the belief that a just peace cannot be established . . . except through complete Israeli withdrawal from territory occupied in 1967 and thereafter." "We must live together as brothers or perish together as fools." The Kuemper Catholic High School senior motto was used as the basis for both the salutatorian and valedictorian addresses during the 10th annual commencement exercises Sunday afternoon. Debra Knobbe. salutatorian, cited the purposes of the high school as developing students' personalities and potentials. In the process, students grow in unity and acquire pride in their classmates' accomplishments. Failures and disappointments along the way increase maturity, Miss Knobbe said. Perseverance and determination prove worthwhile, she added. "If we are going to change the world, we'll have to do it as brothers," Cecilia Berger, valedictorian, said. Miss Berger said that graduation was the beginning of the seniors' lives in the world. She urged that all become active now. The Christian education received at Kuemper should aid in discovering a goal in life, the valedictorian said. Both students received awards from the Rev. Thomas M. Donahoe. superintendent. Fr. Donahoe also presented Bishop F. H. Greteman's Good Citizenship Awards to Joni Seidl and Gregory Kennebeck. and Student Council Exemplary Conduct Awards to Nora O'Leary and Phillip Baldus. Besides the superintendent, the 12 pastors in charge of the parishes served by Kuemper were on the stage. After the Rev. Donahoe presented the graduates to the capacity crowd, the Rev. Harold Cooper, pastor of St. Ann's Church in Vail, awarded diplomas. Ceremonies closed with blessings from the priests and a consecration recited by Kuemper, See Page 10 Arep Forecast Considerable cloudiness with occasional periods of showers and thunderstorms through Wednesday.

But direct rule, which means the governing of Northern Ireland from London, would be resented by Roman Catholics, whose militant factions have been relatively quiet during the Protestant strike. Northern Ireland's civil turmoil, in which more than 1,000 have died, erupted five years Hoffman Ordination on June 1 The Rev. Mr. Andrew W. Hoffman, son of Mr. and Mrs. William N.

Political Spotlight on Demo Contests High Court Invites Nixon Lawyer to Respond WASHINGTON (AP) -The Supreme Court said today it has invited President Nixon's lawyer to respond to special prosecutor Leon Jaworski's request for prompt review of a district court order that Nixon surrender 64 subpoenaed Watergate tapes. ~ The court said presidential lawyer James D. St. Glair promised to file a response by Thursday. Jaworski asked the Supreme Court late last Friday to take jurisdiction in the case after St. Clair asked the U.S. Court of Appeals here to overturn the order of U.S. District Judge John J. Sirica that Nixon surrender the tapes over to the special prosecutor. If the Supreme Court accepts the case, it will bypass the appeals court. WASHINGTON (AP) Vice President Gerald R. Ford says he hopes the House Judiciary Committee won't expand its hearings on the impeachment of.President Nixon, declaring, ^'If they drag it out, it could very well interfere with the necessary work of the Congress." Ford was asked in an interview about reports that com- mi ttee members feel additional hearings are needed to clarify ambiguities in Watergate tapes and transcripts. "I certainly hope not," he replied. "I think they could—I would hope they would get it, whatever they do, to the floor of the House by late June or early July." Ford was interviewed in the wake of his strong public disapproval of President Nixon's refusal to provide any additional Watergate evidence to the Judiciary Committee. However, at the vice president's request, that was not raised in the interview. Presidential Press Secretary Ronald L. Ziegler on Sunday put down reports of differences between Ford and Nixon. Meanwhile, Judiciary Comm i t t e e Republican Reps. Charles E. Wiggins of California, David W. Dennis of Indiana and Henry P. Smith of New York all said Nixon's "hush money" conversation of March 21, 1973, is the only evidence they have heard that could tend to implicate the chief executive in the Watergate cover-up. All had insisted before listening to the tape last week that the inquiry had yet to hear any evidence implicating Nixon. However, the three said in interviews over the Memorial Day recess that the March 21 talk could be a turnaround point if it is clarified with further investigation. And former Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox said Nixon's refusal to comply with the committee's evidence demands is one of three possible grounds for removing him from office. Potentially even more serious, said Cox, would be Nixon's disobedience of a Supreme Court order to turn over tapes and documents. Cox named as the third and broadest ground for impeachment the failure of Nixon to restrain his White House aides and campaigners who were involved in the scandal. Ford said he has not decided whether he will take an active part if the impeachment issue goes before the House. "I certainly will reiterate, as I have in the past, to any members my feelings, and I don't foresee that they're going to change, that the President is innocent of any impeachable offense," Ford said. DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Democrats will have a choice in four statewide contests while Republicans have a choice in only one when they vote in the June 4 primary elections. There is Democratic competition in the races for nomination for governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general and state treasurer. But with the full slate of incumbent Republicans for top state offices running unopposed, the only GOP statewide competition is the battle between state Rep. David Stanley of Muscatine and state Sen. George Milligan of Des Moines for nomination for U.S. Senate. > Rep. John Culver, D-Iowa. is unopposed in the Democratic, primary for the seat being vacated by Sen. Harold Hughes, D-Iowa. Most of the interest in the Democratic primary this year has centered on the three way race for nomination for governor conducted by James Schaben of Dunlap. William Gannon of Mingo and Clark Rasmussen of West Des Moines. But a spirited campaign is being waged for the Democratic lieutenant governor nomination between state Sens. William Palmer, a Des Moines insurance agency executive, and Charles Miller, a Burlington chiropractor. Palmer is making appear- ances around the state advocating tax relief for middle income lowans, more aid for the elderly poor, and increased consumer protection while condemning the recently-approved property tax breaks for businesses that reduce pollution. Contest, See Page 10 was being tapered off and a total blackout in the six counties of the British province was expected within 24 hours unless British soldiers could keep the plants operating. "Let the army bury the dead," declared Glen Barr of the Ulster Workers' Council, which is coordinating the strike. "We'll eat grass before we're beaten." Fight on Welfare Bill Seen WASHINGTON (AP) -Another policy battle with President Nixon looms as the House takes up a bill this week to revise the federal antipoverty program but keep it under Washington's control. The antipoverty bill heads a light legislative calendar for Congress, when it returns today from a long Memorial Day weekend recess. Before the Senate is an effort to revive continued U.S. participation in making international loans to poor countries, which the House rejected last January. The House Judiciary Committee is to complete the Watergate cover-up phase of its impeachment evidence review and then meet possibly Thursday on what to do about the President's refusal to turn over subpoenaed tapes. The House antipoverty bill would go along with Nixon's proposal to dismantle the Office of Economic Opportunity, but would reject his plan generally to turn control of antipoverty programs over to the states. It would transfer the heart of the present program, community action services such as Operation Head Start and social services, over to a new Community Action Administration in the Department of Health, Education and Welfare. Legal services for the poor also would be turned over to HEW pending the outcome of a separate bill to create a Legal Services Corporation. Migrant programs would be turned over to the Labor Department and community economic development programs would be turned over to the Commerce Department. The White House supports amendments by Rep. Albert H. Quie, R-Minn., to knock the Community Action Administration out of the bill or at least knock out federal regional offices which most directly control local antipoverty programs. The bill in the Senate would authorize a $1.5 billion U.S. commitment over four years to the International Development Association, a World Bank branch that loans money to countries where per capita income is $375 a year or less. Final Graduation is Held at Immanuel LIDDERDALE — The last class to graduate from Immanuel Lutheran School received eighth grade diplomas during Sunday worship services at the church. Albert Wenck, chairman of the school board, presented diplomas to the three graduates — Julie Harmening, Roger Onken and Jeffry Wenck. Declining enrollment was the principal reason for the school's closing, according to the Rev. Albert Bostelmann, pastor. Fifteen students attended the school during the 1973-74 academic year. The school was established in 1882, and the present school building east of the church was erected in 1923. Leslie Lase was the principal and sole teacher. The Rev. Gary Arp of Clarinda, chairman of the district parish board on education, was the speaker for the service. "Although the school's closing is sad, the congregation should be thankful for the 92 years the school was in operation and its accomplishments," the Pastor Arp said. "Now, the congregation must look to the future and make the best use of available facilities." Several former teachers attended the service, and Immanuel Lutheran pupils sang a song. A display of the school's mementoes was set up in the fellowship hall. Immanuel Lutheran students will now attend the Carroll public elementary school. The school building will be used for congregational programs, weekday classes and vacation Bible school, Pastor Bostelmann said.
