Catholic extremists spurred fears
in Belfast that the violence would
escalate. In Dublin it was felt
that the bloodletting would spill ov-

than ever before.
Lynch has won general support
for his policies, including a crack-
down on the outlawed Irish Repub-
lican Army and a major revamp-
ing of Ireland's constitution.
Lynch declared his government
has "pursued the only sane policy
which could bring about a true
reconciliation of the communities
and a lasting peace with justice
Domestic economic issues may
be even more important. The
price of butter, milk, meat and
eggs have been rising sharply in
recent months. Discontent about
this has been matched by worries
over climbing unemployment in
the textile and shoe-making trades.
Some of Lynch's opponents sug-
gest that he may be anxious to
squeeze in an election before pro-
posed new electoral reforms which

WASHINGTON (A')-Under a temporary restraining order, the
Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) yesterday delayed a regulation
which would have gone into effect at midnight requiring airports to
provide guards at each passenger boarding gate.
The FAA said, however, the new rule would still go into effect
immediately at the two airports it operates, Washington National and
Dulles International near the capital.
The agency urged other airports to provide such officers also, if
The FAA had ordered that all airports comply with the new rule as
of Feb. 6.
The new FAA regulations require each airport to station at least
one law enforcement officer at each passenger boarding gate.
The airport group petitioned Jan. 26 for a six-month postponement,
claiming many airports could not hire and train the required officers
The FAA denied the Airport Operators' Council International (AOCI)
petition for a six-month postponement in the deadline yesterday
The airport operators thereupon went to court and won a temporary
injunction. It prohibited the FAA from putting the new rule into effect
before Feb. 16, and ordered a Feb. 13 hearing to resolve the legal
questions that had been raised.
Some airports already have hired the additional officers required
to man boarding gates where passengers are screened for hidden;
weapons and their hand luggage is inspected.
AOCI complained that the FAA was trying to coerce 531 local
governments to take over the federal government's obligations to the
public at airline airports.
