        NEWPORT — Nobel Peace Prize winner and Northern Ireland peace activist Mairead Corrigan Maguire will ring the World Peace Bell here Saturday as part of the World Peace Day observance.

        Ms. Maguire won the Peace Prize in 1976, jointly with her Protestant co-worker, Betty Wil liams. She is co-founder and director of the Community of the Peace People and co-founded, with Claran McKeown, the Northern Ireland Peace Movement.

        She will be at the World Peace Bell pavilion at Fourth and York streets at 11:30 a.m. and will help ring the 33-ton bell at noon. She is also part of the Xavier University Millennium Peace Celebration to be held Sunday at the Cintas Cen ter on the XU campus.

        A walk-a-thon to raise money for the Juvenile Diabetes Association will leave from the bell site, beginning at 10:30 a.m.

        Other events originally planned for World Peace Day, including a parade from several river cities and a children's festival, have been rescheduled as part of the Ring In 2001 celebration on New Year's Eve, Dec. 31.
