Parliament supports
North Irish leader

Trial begins over Algiers motel incident'

BELFAST, Northern Ireland (AP)I
r--Prime Minister Terence O'Neill
weathered his toughest political
test in six years in office yester-
day, winning an affirmation of
confidence from the Ulster Parlia-
ment for his handling of four
months of civil rights strife.
The confidence motion, ap-
proved without formal vote after
an amendment critical of O'Neill
was defeated 31-3, was expected
to enable the prime minister to
overcome any challenge to his
leadership of the Unionist Party,
The party, split by the resigna-
tions of four ministers from posts
in the O'Neill Cabinet, was ex-
pected to meet later in the week.

"We think the University's ed-
ucation system is wrong-we have
a better way to learn," said one
Fee School organizer.}
Someone asked how ten kids
could learn about a subject if
none of them knew a lot about it
"If you had the opportunity to
take a course in witchcraft, which
is itself very unlikely, the teach-
er would have the course com-
┬░letely structured before you ever
got there. You would be learning
what the teacher wanted to teach
-not' necessarily what you were
interested in.
"The teacher designs the course
because he says; he knows a lot
more about witchcraft than you
do, and he probably does. He ma:
have read every book ever writtei
on the subject; but he may hav
never met a witch in his life."

they call resource material.
