BELFAST, Northern Ireland {R) - The prime ministers «
of Britain and Northern Ireland joined hands last night
in an appeal for cancellation of a massive civil rights march
scheduled tomorrow in Newry.
dTheir pleas were bolstered by action from Ireland' s
Roman Catholic primate, striving to head off another incident
similar to last week's "Bloody Sunday," in which 13 persons
were killed by British troops. N
Earlier, Prime Minister Jack Lynch of the Irish republic
warned in his toughest language yet that any overreaction by

1 75 rally,
4in support
of rebels
By JANET GORDON
"The idea that this is a religious
war between some mad Protes-
tants and some mad Catholics and
that the British are there as a
peacekeeping force is simply not
true," charged Bernard Cullen at
yesterday's rally in support of
Irish efforts to oust British troops
from Northern Ireland.
Speaking to 175 people-many
wearing green-Cullen, a Univer-
sity student who recently left
Northern Ireland, continued, "Thai
view is just a smokescreen used by
the British to cover up the real
*onditions and resentments."
Cullen claimed that since the
British first colonized Ireland 80
years ago, they have exploited re-
ligious mistrust to their own eco-
nomic advantage in urging Pro-
testants to hatecCatholics.
However, according to Cullen,
#many Protestants support the Irish
Liberation Army in its fight against
what he termed British imperial-
ism.
British repression - in response
to Irish political activity - Culler
feels, has aroused. the resentments
of "even the average Irish family
'nan." He insisted that the anti-
British activities, contrary to me-
dia reports, do not represent the
work of a handful.
He cited last Sunday's demon-
stration of 20,000 in Londonderry
as indicative of Irish reaction t
what he called a "complete denia
*of civil liberties."
Cullen reported that recently a
mass campaign of civil disobedi-
ence had begun in Northern Ire-
land. The Irish people, he said
were withholding taxes and boy
cotting buses, stores and many
other British-owned businesses.
e"d,400,000 people," Cullen estimat
ed, "think seriously enough of
what is happening to withdraw
their consenthfrom the govern-
ment in Northern Ireland"
Cullen described the iternmen
of over a thousand political pris-
oners in concentration camps, and
'he firing by British troops int
a crowd of peaceful demonstrators
last Sunday as characteristic o0
the desperate situation.
Describing the camps, he said
that "a disease comparable tc
leprosy has broken out in alarm-
ding proportions because of the
filth and malnutrition."
Admitting that he was unsure
exactly what steps could be taker
to rectify the complicated situa-
tion, Cullen strongly emphasized
that "British troops must be with-
drawn from Ireland."

Ireland could "lead to a war
to war," Lynch told newsmen,
'"but the activities of British
soldiers could lead to a war
situation. We have no inten-
tion of letting it develop to
anything like that.
Lynch strongly hinted he would
consider approaching Communist
countries for support if Ireland's
traditional allies failed to back
him up.
The Irish leader's remarks dra-
matically underscored the bitter
Irish-English confrontation that
has sprung from the bloodshed in
-Northern Ireland.
1Northern Irish security forces
reported evidence early today that
tgunmen of the outlawed Irish Re-
tpublican Army have begun mov-
fing into Newry for the protest

SGC passes research policy;
Oesterle resigns from Council

Student Government Council
late Thursday night proposed a
policy on University classified
and military research at a meet-
ing marked by the resignation
of Council member Dale Oesterle.
The resolution comes as ths
year-long research controversy
seems near an end. Senate As-
sembly, the faculty representa-
tive body, last week passed a
measure which would restrict

passed last week. However, it
would forbid the acceptance of
any research contract or grant
from the Department of Defense
or any other military agency.
The resolution will be sent to
the Regents for consideration,
but is expected to have little
effect on the final regental re-
search policy.
According to SGC member

Democratic co-chairman Robert
Kleiner of Grand Rapids said,
"Basically, we wanted to negotiate
on plans in relation to existing
politicalssub-divisions and munici-
pal boundaries."
"The Republicans," he charges,
"wanted to negotiate onthe parti-
san effects of the plan. We refused
to engage in bi-partisan gerry-
mandering."

An ideal answer to urban transportation problems may be to
transmit human bodies over telephones wires.
Ideals aside, however, thirty-six university students have
developed a more immediate solution to the problem. The group
has developed a car for entry in the nationwide Urban Vehicle
Development Contest. 92 schools have entered the contest, spon-
sored by a group of Massachusetts Institute of Technology students.
The project was conceived last February in an auto engineering
class. A group of engineering and architecture students have
