Is

there a

power shortage?

By UPI
Amid reports that the worst may,
be yet to come in Michigan's fuel
crises, Consumers Power Co. an-I
nounced yesterday it will deny gas
service to new residential homeI
applicants after tomorrow.

The utility, the largest in the
state, said it was taking the step
in order "to protect more than
900,000 existing customers."
John Simpson, senior vice-presi-
dent for. gas operations, said the
decision to cease aceptance of new

Terrorist bombing
renews in Belfast
BELFAST VP) - Bombs wrecked stores yesterday after
sectarian assassins called the "Butchers of Belfast" lo.lled five
persons in 36 hours.
Squads of guerrillas, believed to belong to the Irish Repub-
lican Army (IRA), planted two bombs in stores - one in the
city center, the other in a tough Protestant district of west
Belfast.
The blast shattered the buildings, but no casualties were
reported.
Earlier yesterday, two teen-age Roman Catholic boys were
victims of assasins, apparently Protestant extremists. Some
suspicion arose that the murders were carried out by IRA
punishment squads, since Protestant extremists rarely venture
into IRA strongholds. But police preferred the theory that both
victims were slain by Protestant assassins.
Another two young Catholics and a member of the Ulster
Defense Association (UDA), the most powerful of the Protestant
vigilante armies in the province, were shot and killed Tuesday.
The slayings ended a two-week lull that followed a tough
UDA warning it would stamp out the assassins with its own
rough justice if necessary.
The killings coincided with a new UDA announcement it had
not been able to halt the assassinations and now believed it was
futile to even try because of IRA "provocation."
Within hours, a UDA man was killed. The IRA's nationalist
Provisional wing boasted it was behind the slaying, saying the
UDA member was a known gunman who shot a Catholic boy
Tuesday.
The slayings and the virtual green light the UDA gave
Protestant extremists spawned fears that the "Butchers," who
have now claimed at least 130 lives in their fued within a feud,
would be stalking the streets again.
As IRA snipers peppered army and police posts across the
province, the UDA was in trouble with the law.
Police interviewed Tommy Herron, the paramilitary organi-
zation's deputy commander, about reports the UDA had smug-
gled. hundreds of Communist-made automatic rifles from the
Irish republic.
Herron, a Protestant from the UDA's heartland in Belfast's
Shankill quarter, refused to talk.
But although security authorities have taken no overt of-
ficial action against the UDA, sources in Belfast said yester-
day's approach by police could signal a harsher policy against
the massive army of masked vigilantes,
