British leaders
deny clandestine
talks with rebels
BELFAST, Northern Ireland ()It- British government spc.kes-
persons here and in London yesterday denied they have held any
secret meetings with Irish terrorists, despite a 24-hour bloodbath
which has left 10 dead in the province.
Rumors of clandestine meetings between the British and nem-
bers of the Irish Republican Army have been ripe since the IRA
chief in Belfast. Seamus Twomey called for a new truce Wednesday.
Twomey said at the time that his forces might consider rnew-
ing the cease-fire that ended Sunday after 13 days, if British troops
stick to truce terms barring them from arresting IRA members.

which just says 'Get out and
vote for George,"' Kirt West
says, looking up from a cup
of coffee in the basement of the
Fontainebleu 'Hotel.
West is one of hundreds of
young McGovern volunteers who
flocked down here last week,
packing themselves deep in
cheap hotel rooms to work for
the Senator's nomination. "Two

of us sleep in the beds and the
other two on the floor," West
says. "The room is ten dollars
a night - that's only $2.50
West's dedication, however, is
not to a man but rather to
ideals - an end to war in Indo-
china and social justice at
And, like many of his fellow'
idealists he is very concerned
lest his candidate compromise

him to Miami in the first place.

"If all McGovern gets is Dick
Daley and George Meany on his
back," West fears, "he will bow
to their pressure."
This fear has been felt
throughout the M c G o v e r n
camp in the past few days. The
result has been the formation
of a group called Concerned
McGovern Volunteers which is
determined to prevent the Sen-
ator from "backsliding."
"We have to stay on his ass,"
West says. "He's making state-
ments to test how far he can
go. Then if he gets flack, tue
retracts them."
Two mass meetings and a
number of regional caucuses of
the group have been held, and
West has been named a midwest
coordinator. The avowed goals
of the group are to put heat on
McGovern to stand firm on his
commitment to change, and to
insure that the national cam-
paign will be run as the pri-
maries were - on the grass
roots level.
"Our organization has to
mobilize people around issues at
the local level," West says.
"They (the national staff) have
to realize that the only way to
win is to run an issue-oriented
campaign - that's the way we
won the primaries."

from the national staff. I never
got a reason."
Other things, too, bothered
him about the game of big-time
politics. "They did a lot of
things to raise money like hir-
ing attractive young women to
flirt with rich old drunks," he
says, shaking his head.
On several occasions he left
