(AP Wirephoto) By COI.IN FROST BELFAST, Northern Ireland (AP) -- Two years ago the Union Jacks which flew over Prol- lostanl strongholds in Shankill Road and Sandy Row aitestcd to an u n s h a k e n allegiance to the British Crown. Today the same flagpoles defiantly fly the red and white of Ulster, and the Protestant militants of the Ulster Workers' Council are sounding almost as anti-British as their sworn foes, the Roman Catholics. This is the political paradox of Northern Ireland: the bloody five-year feud between Prolcs- lants and the Catholic minority has given them a common enemy -- the British. The defiant Protestants paralyzed Northern Ireland with a IS-day general strike and r h a t tered the delicate British blue print for power-sharing in the province. The toppled provincial coalition government of Catholics and Protestants was the whole basis of Britain's political do sign to heat the Catholic-based Irish Republican Army's u r b a n guerrillas. n u t the council was shelved during in the strike. The British design lies in ruin. Now, with the celebration bonfires slil "" rni "g in Belfast's Protestant back streets, the question is: What next? INDEPENDENT ULSTER One idea increasingly popular among grass-roots Protestants s an independent Ulster. Independence was one of .hrce iiHerruitives seriously proposed to British leaders thurs- lay by three Protestant chiefs, he Rev. Ian Paisley, Harry West and William Craig. Craig, leader of the extremist Vanguard movement, has long talked of a negotiated independ ence in the hope that Protes :anls'and Catholics could find a common allegiance to Northern "reland. By contrast, the Catholic based Irish Republican Army's nationalist Provisional Wing has long pressed to make Ulster a Protestant - governed province in a united Ireland. The Catholics evidently saw t h a t Protestant discontent might lead to British withdraw al. All d u r i n g the two-week strike the IRA kept unusualij quiet, suspending all its bomb ing attacks.

Kitchens For Boys, Girls Stale Ready NORTH LITTLE ROCK CAP) - The kitchen' facilities at amp Robinson in North IJtlle Sock apparently are ready for delegates to Boys Slate and Girls State. Between 800 and 1,000 delegates to Boys State will begin ealing there Saturday and a similar, number of Girls State delegates will arrive June 9. William Glenn, the chief Boys ilute dietitian, said state iealth Department, American ion and National Guard officials are "tickled to .death" with the sanitation of the facilities. The kitchen failed to pass .nspcclion during Boys State .asl year, although improvements made after the inspections reduced the number of demerits enough to allow the kitchen to slay open. Dr. Edgar Easley, the assistant state health officer, said in a recent letter to Girls Stale officials, "I am pleased to en close a favorable report on the ititchen facilities." Easley com plimented the National Quart for bringing the facilities up to standards. Improvements included installing two new SOft-gallon wa Ler heaters, increasing refigera- lion facilities by a third and installing new screen doors with metal kick-boards. Hoyll Neill, chief Pulaski County sanitarian, said Ihe 'primary objection last year was inadequate facilities for sani- tising trays, dishes and silverware. Delegates to Boys State and Girls State will eat from paper trays and drink f r o m paper cups this year. The only washable item will be the silverware.
