Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 7, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDCE HERALD Friday, January 7, 1972 Boom year is predicted for Canada during '72 Dv PAUL JACKSON Herald Ollnwn Bureau OTTAWA Despite what critics uf the Liberal govern- ment have been telling us for many months, from a business viewpoint life was pretty good in 1971. Not as good as it might have been, mind you, but hard- ly as bad as the pessimists would have us believe. And by all accounts WT2 promises to be much better. In fact, it could well turn out to be a boom year or a year leading into a boom year. A coule of years ago James Wood, president of the Alberta- based Rocky Mountain Life In- surance Company and one of the keenest and most energetic business minds I've ever bump- ed into, told me that he thought Baby baths warning issued OTTAWA (CP) Cana- dian physicians have been warned by the health depart- ment's food and drug directo- rate against unnecessary ba- thing of babies in solutions con- t a i n i n g the bacteria-killing chemical hexachlorophene. The warning, contained in the current issue of the depart- ment's Rx Bulletin for medical professionals, continues that if hexachlorophene bathing in hos- pital nurseries is necessary, in- fants should be thoroughly rinsed afterwards. Wednesday the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced it was moving to restrict se- verely the use of the common ingredient of cosmetics and over-the-counter drugs. The FDA said it was acting on results of laboratory tests showing the chemical caused brain damage in rats and mon- keys after ingestion or regular bathing. Hexachlorophene is to be banned in all cosmetics, includ- ing vaginal deodorants. Hexach- lorophene has caused genital ir- ritation in many of the esti- mated 24 million women using the sprays. HEQUIRE PRESCRIPTION All skin cleansers containing more than .75 per cent hexach- lorophene are to be sold on a prescription basis only :Ji the U.S. This ruling will seriously affect the sale of popular cleansers like pHisoHex and Hy- perpHaze which contain three- per-cent concentrations of hex- achlorophene. Cleansers containing less than .75 per cent hexachlorophene must, under the new U.S. regu- lations, carry a label warning of the product's potential harm. Dr. Jeffrey Bishop of the Ca- nadian food and drug directo- rate said in an interview Thurs- day that the limited health de- partment warning was an "in- terim statement" and further restrictive action could follow current investigations of the chemical's use in Canada. "Once we have this informa- tion we can decide what concen- trations of hexschlorophene are acceptable. Dr. Bishop stressed that in its 20 years of use in Canada as a baby bath there have been no reported cases of injury. Most hexachlorophene-con- taining cosmetics, such as pow- ders, creams, toothpastes, mouthwashes and shampoos, contain concentrations well under the .75 per cent. Vagina] sprays contain about one per cent hexachlorophene. Sky progi- may be cut TAMPA, Fla. (CP-AP) The head of the federal sky. marshal program says the program will he re-evaluated in July and probably cut by as much as SI I million. Benjamin Davis said yester- day that sky marshals are used daily on flights but their chances of being on the right one to stop a hijacking are low because flights leave U.S. terminals each day. The retired nir force general and a s s i s I a n t secretary for safety and consumer affairs said in an interview that many hijack allcmpLs could have been prevented if airports employed thorough passenger screening procedures. "It is too Inlc for n marshal to do much when n hijacker hns n Run held to a tM said.

In Canada, Finance Minister Edgar Benson has managed to bring off a scries 'of coups that have surprised and pos- sibly even annoyed the opposi- tion.

Jim felt that the conti- nent's era of unsurpassed pros- perity and economic growth was just around the comer. I've a feeling that 1972 and 1973 is probably the time he had in mind when he made those si .tements. GNP RISE Already people are predict- ing a ten per cent rise in Can- ada's gross national product for this j'ear. It is reckoned that the real rise in output will be about six per cent.

Estimates are that con- one you don't certainly stands lip here. Business knows what it will have to face in the 1970s. Unemployment is still high fnd will remain so throughout the year. That is, of course, bed for the unemployed, good [or the Parliamentary opposi- tion and worrying to the gov- ernment. Bui it will hardly cramp the pccketbooks of those who have jobs.

Obviously, there' are going be some new rules and regula- tions about future U.S. domina- tion of Canadian business and industry. But a close study of comments made by a number of cabinet ministers on the subject should give no joy to the fervent Canadian national- ists. There'll probably be strong emphasis on protecting our na- tural resources and perhaps highly sophisticated operations such as the computer indus- tries, but if a U.S. giant wants to come into Canada to build a labor intensive plant that will employ a couple of hundred people it will be just as wel- come as ever.
