Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 6, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta ItM-TMl I Eight per cent hike expected Feature photo winner This picture of Prime Minister Trudeau being saluted as he carries his son Justin is uie winner of National Newspaper award for feature photography in 1973. It was taken by Rod Maclvor, 28, of United Press International, Ottawa. Saudi Arabian capital relaxing social taboos RIYADH, Saudi Arabia This inland capital of Saudi Arabia, long isolated and sternly opposed to western ways, is modernizing its outlook toward foreigners and relaxing its social taboos. The influence of Moslem fundamentalism of social customs is still very strong, but there are changes, often subtle, that foreign residents are finding makes life more agreeable. A large increase in the number of .foreigners living here is one major cause of change, along with the return of many Saudi Arabians to government jobs and private business after university studies in western countries. No fundamental change would be possible, however, without the approval or at least consent of King Faisal, and, from all indications the word has been passed that the 69-year old king approves. For instance, when the Canada escapes hair spray recall OTTAWA (CP) Two brands of Clairol, Inc. hair spray taken off store shelves in the United States, have not been recalled in Canada because they do not contain the same dangerous chemical as some samples of the U.S. brand, a health department official said Friday. The health department was checking with manufacturers of cosmetic and drug spray products sold in Canada, however, to ensure that none use the dangerous chemical vinyl chloride as a propellant. The U.S. Food and Drug Ad- ministration asked Clairol to recall voluntarily the two PARKS COIN-C LAUND DE p DRY CLEAN 2634 Sovth Parkaldo Drive 12INQLIS WASHERS Plus 25 Ib.

Clairol announced the recall after it discovered some cans of spray remaining on store shelves contained the chemical. The company discontinued use of the chemical as a propellant last summer after about four years. Vinyl chloride is a less effective propellant than ffie usual mixture of two freons, the health department official said. It was unlikely that any cosmetic or drug manufacturer still was using it. Unemployment rate in U.S. drops slightly WASHINGTON (AP) Unemployment in the United States dropped slightly from 5.2 per cent to S.I per cent ot the work force in March, the government said today. It was the first decline in five months and raised hopes that the rise in joblessness that began with the Arab oil embargo may have topped out. The labor department considered the drop of one- tenth of one per cent statistically insignificant but government analysts said the figures did suggest stability in the job picture. government decided in 1969 that the capital needed a modern international hotel, the original design had separate entranceways for men and women, and a separate dining area for women, in the traditional fashion here. But in 1971, when the project was handed over to the International Hotel Corporation, the separation of facilities was scrapped, and the 200-room hotel now nearing completion will have dining facilities for families to come together for a Sunday barbecue. There will also be a recreational area, with tennis courts, a swimming pool and a health club that will be open not only to foreign visitors but also to Saudi family membership. i The idea of the family going out to dinner, or of belonging to a swimming club, is a major innovation here, since traditional social relations are centered on the home, behind closed doors, with wives and daughters often barred from appearing, except in the presence of family members. It has become commonplace in the last year, however, to see western women with short skirts and bare arms in the old market area, where rugs, antique metalware, old bedouin chests and muskets and good buys in gold coins and watches attract foreign residents or visitors. The women are welcomed by the merchants and shopkeepers, who have become tourist conscious and have raised their prices to almost double those of a year ago. Before, a woman without a long skirt and with her hair covered by a shawl ran into hostility from Saudi women, who were heavily veiled in black. This could lead to the so-called religious police, the most traditional force in the capital, forcing the western intruder to leave. There is no sign that the veil for women is being abandoned, and even high- school girls, in long blue and gray tunics, wear the veil as they come and go from home to school iti big yellow buses. But many wear high-heeled shoes and carry attache cases. Conversations in homes of liberal Saudi families with teen-aged Daughters soon show that behind their veils they are thinking modern though, and yearn for opportunities to use their education.
