WasUfigtoii Bickftairi Introspective and thoughtful, the President likes to weigh his options in the solitude and seclusion of hid mountaintop retreat before reaching major decisions. Hareiy do his aides explain a sudden decision —and never is it listed his published to the on schedule —to fly hideiaway for an overnight stay. Last week he went to the retreat alone, with a bare minimum of aides, his doctor and Secret Service agents, to apparently cogitate on the clamor for a sWitch in policy on the Watergate affair. His trip was followed by four days of strategy meetings at the White House after which Nixon reversed himself 180 and degrees on the case announced an apparent decision to let the chips fall where they may. He agreed to permit aides to testify befora Senate investigators and anparMitiy with some for^knowlMge of. things to come, he announced that anyone on his staff who is Indicted in the political espion^ age case wUt be suspended, and anyone convicted would be fired. His decision to btte the bullet could not have, been an easy one. It meant a complete reversal of previous stands, and it meant that loyal aides, acting in support of his re-election, may be ruined. paign and tWe are questions that have to be afiawerad/* he said. ''The {Resident Is aware of atMl omsistent with his the vietmi 6t safeguarding accu^ ... wants to clarify the questions to the satisfaction of .the American public." i The Watergate affair has led to the usual quips around town: In place of "peace with honor," wags are now saying "indictments with honor." White House Press Secretary who has for L. Ziegler, the line with Ronald been on the firing several months, mostly prepared denials to questions regarding the Watergate case, has yet to pull back from a single statement. His words "will stand the test believe they Nixonvonce said, *'I run my own campaigns." It is quite apparent that he did not foresee the Watergate case becoming a serious blemish on his administration, eroding major successes of the past. But his son*in-law, Lt. (j.g.) David Eisenhower, disclosed that the White House is well aware that the American people ''are now demanding an accounting of the government to prove to thciir satisfaction, the integrity of the process of!of the President during the government.* "So regardless of the size of the incident, it has assumed a greater importance now than it did during the election cam- of time," he says. But reporters will not. One phrase already questionable was his initial response as a White House spokesman following the arrest of aides of the Committee for the Re-Election of the President during the burglary of Democratic party headquarters, Ziegler, speaking from the White HoUse podium, dismissed it as a ''third rate burglary." 1) L " iPi Elephant Sniffer 0' 7.

IRA Falls on Evil Days By COLIN BAKER BELFAST (UPI) For the Irish Republican Army (IRA), underground child of the 1916 Easter Rebellion, these are evil days. There is no letup in Northern Ireland's murderous violence. But for almost the first time people see a glimmer of hope. Many of the IRA*s leaders, guileful masterminds of much of the violence, are behind bars. Nearly 300 officers have been replaced by men raw to guerrilla warfare command. Its ranks are depleted. "They're sending out kids as snipers without even teaching them how to use their rifles," a British Army source said this month." They're nothing but cannon fodder, and we're knocking them over like ninepins." The IRA's support is dwindling. Tips and facts from the public now break through IRA intimidation. An opinion poll this month in Londonderry's Creggan Estate, once solidly in support of the IRA, showed 83 per cent favoring peaceful methods. The IRA, fathered by the volunteers who rose in Dublin against British rule at Easter, 1916, never has wavered from one goal: To unite Northern Ireland's Protestant dominated six counties with the predominantly Roman Catholic Irish Republic. The forerunner of the IRA, the Irish Republican Brotherhood was largely responsible for the Easter Rebellion of 1916, was swiftly few street 1056 violent which a a rising crushed with battles and a series of executions and deportations. Politicians organized themselves as Sinn Fein (Ourselves Alone). The Volunteer Force, in January of 1919, reorganized itself into the IRA.- It waged war on the British, bitterly opposing a truce arrangement in July, 1921 which split Ireland's 3^ counties into two' parts—the Catholic 26- county Irish Free State in the south and the heavily Protestant six counties of Northern Ireland. Civil war broke out when this partition was made formal by the Anglo-Irish treaty of 1922. The Irish Republic emerged from the civil war as an independent nation, but the six- county north stayed part of the United Kingdom. For more than 30 years the IRA slumbered, its sporadic, its viqlence already-illegal activities underground. But in it mounted a campaign in the south much like the current one in the north, with the same aim: To re-unite Ireland by force. It bombed bridges and customs posts and attacked police cars and military barracks. Finally it admitted responsibility for the machine-gun murder of an off-duty policeman and his girl friend. Public opinion was so outraged it expelled representatives of Sinn Fein, which had become the IRA's political arm, from the Irish parliament. The IRA moved in the North after wild rioting prompted Britain to send troops into Northern Ireland in August, 1969. The first death of the current Northern Ireland "troubles" came that month. From then until the middle of last year there was no doubt who had the upper hand. These were the IRA's halcyon days. Britain, in desperation, took direct control. It installed William Whitelaw as head of government in Northern Ireland. As it had in Malaya, Britain's army began the slow grind of whipping a guerrilla force. The IRA struck hard.
