Beauty Salons ^MiElZ N.D. Irrigation Project Faces Opposition for Both Sexes FUNNY BUSINESS Bv Howard Ulman HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) The bouffant and the beard may be seen side by side in Connecticut beauty salons now that a federal judge has opened their doors to all sexes. "It might be fun. You never know who you'll meet in a beauty salon," said Marjorie Stevenson of Winsor, as she settled into a chair at a downtown salon. She was having her hair done one day after U. S. District Court Judge Jon 0. Newman ruled unconstitutional the section of a state law prohibiting hairdressers from serving male customers. The law allows barbers to cut the hair of both sexes. In his ruling. Judge Newman noted that hair fashion has changed since the hairdresser law was passed 50 years ago. "There is now in vogue among some members of the male sex a 'unisex' fashion whereby'males desire to have their hair styled and cut longer in some more detailed manner,"he said. Angelo Bermudez, owner of the Michelangelo Beauty Salon in New Haven, said he was concerned the ruling might be "an invasion of privacy." "I don't think women would like to walk around in rollers and a bleached head in front of men,"he said. Bermudez said he would accept male customers and might do their hair "in a back room." But most women contacted in a spot survey 'voiced no apprehension about sharing their domain with men. "It wouldn't bother me in the least. My husband sees me in rollers and I have a man doing my hair," said Mrs. Enos Arnold of West Hartford, a patron at Nigrelli's Beauty Salon in Hartford. Charles Nigrelli, the owner, disagreed. "I will have a separate area for the men to make it comfortable for both sexes," he said. Other salon owners said they might set up a special time or day for men. In New York State, either sex may be served by a barber or cosmetologist. But the shop must provide enclosed booths for customers wishing them and requires a storefront sign within. Massachusetts has no prohibition on men going to beauty salons. Margaret Russo, whose salon in Hartford caters to an older crowd, said "I think the younger girls would love it because they might meet a date." Some beauty salon owners said men had been asking them for hair stylings for more than a year but were turned away because of the law. Another salon owner. Pat Borawski, said she didn't think men would take advantage of the new ruling. "I believe women have their place to go and men have their place to go," she said. Bruno Utley, a West Hartford stylist, said men could gain from a trip to a salon. \S IT THERE WAS NO UNTIL THE -4 PfrCE GOT OP TO TuJICE rr WAS A, CIEAR A©O By Roger Bo/Jen "It would make them look more presentable, instead of walking around shabby and unkempt," he concluded.

(AP) — For nearly 100 years, men have dreamed of making North Dakota's semi-arid, plains bloom like a garden. For the past 10 years, the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation has been working to make the dream a reality: But, environmentalists fear the dream may turn out to be a nightmare, and the Canadian government agrees. Now a giant irrigation project in North Dakota has become an international controversy. The project, called the Garrison Diversion Unit, has faced sharp criticism in North Dakota for years, though nearly every major organization and all of the state's top politicians endorse it. Opponents label Garrison Diversion as "one of the biggest water development disasters in history." The project's supporters say it will make North Dakota one of the most fertile farm areas in the nation. Last year, the Canadian government jumped into the argument when it learned salt-polluted irrigation waters could end up crossing the international boundary. The Canadians pulled out a treaty signed in 1909 which More Wall Street Disasters Expected NEW YORK - (LENS) Commission-starved brokers say Wall Street is now discounting everything but Armageddon and the Dow could move up 100 points in a Soviet Humor Newspaper Aim at Current Problems By Lynne Olson MOSCOW (AP) —Wielding a screwdriver, the waiter screws eating utensils into the restaurant table. "Now I hope our forks and spoons will stop disappearing," he says to the cook. —The kerchiefed woman contemplates the coat her husband is trying on in a store. It's, much too large but the only one available to him. "Don't worry that the sleeves are too long," she says. "You won't need any gloves." —The owner of a tavern watches an old babushka spreading sand on the bar's ice-covered stoop. "Spread more sand," he orders, indicating the factory across the street. "It's pay day." These three cartoons, taking respective potshots at the omnipresent Soviet problems of theft, unavailability of consumer goods and drinking, appeared recently in Krokodil (Crocodile), the Soviet Union's humor newspaper. Featuring ; brightly colored cartoons and satirical articles and poems, Krokodil appears three times a month on newsstands, selling for 15 kopecks (20 cents) a copy. At first glance, the tabloid-sized paper appears to be a diverting relief from the heavy ideological prose of the rest of the Soviet press. But Krokodil is published by the authoritative Communist party newspaper Pravda, and its criticism is carefully confined to subjects approved by the Soviet regime. The foibles of minor bureaucracy are fair game for satire,' but criticism of high government officials is forbidden. The stories and cartoons of Krokodil are meant not just to amuse, but also to teach a lesson. Soviet citizens who covet costly fur coats are warned by the cartoon of a mink stole wrapped like a snake around the neck of its unsuspecting owner. "The mink is soft and mild, but it has the features of a python," Krokodil says. Krokodil throws darts at a multitude of Soviet shortcomings, but some of its favorite targets are drunkenness, the lack of consumer goods and their shoddy workmanship, long hair and sloppy habits of young people, and the corruption and inefficiency of government and trade workers. Some of the problems satirized by Krokodil are familiar ones to Americans. Likegrafitti. Krokodil's light pricks of satire directed toward the Soviet Union's own problems are balanced by its sharp, often bitter, attacks on Western capitalists and other considered anti-Soyiet. The energy crisis in the West has come in for its share of sniping. A cartoon shows a masked cowboy bandit riding off on his horse with a gasoline can, after shooting down the employes of a gas station. It's called: "Western "74." Sod Webworms Sod Webworms are the larvae of lawn moths. The adults are small, whitish or gray moths (or millers) folding their wings closely about their bodies when at rest. They hide in the shrubbery during the day, and during the early evening, they fly over the grass scattering their eggs over the lawn. The Sod Webworm is about %-inch long, light brown, and their bodies are covered with fine hairs. The Sod Webworm feeds on the crown of the grass, which destroys the plant. When this happens, brown spots (dead grass) appear in the lawn.

This carries about as much conviction with American investors as the oft-corrected statements of Ron Ziegler, the White House press secretary. The prime rate and the Federal Funds rate are still well into double figures and there is no sign of falls yet in the price of fixed-interest securities. Woolworth bonds were yielding 9.5 per cent at the beginning of the week and the yield on medium-grade utility bonds was a point or so • higher. Interest rates remain the dominant factor and the Dow Jones industrial average, having tested old lows in the high 700s, has moved diffidently away from that dangerous territory in the hope that the prime rate will begin ratcheting downward. The bulls point to plenty of cash on the sidelines. Mutual funds, after living through two and a quarter years of redemptions, have learned to stay liquid. Many pension funds have 15 per cent in cash. And there is always the argument that 75 per cent of all listed securities are dirt cheap at less than 10 times earnings. But some acute Wall Street watchers remain unconvinced and are keeping their money well away. They reckon there is a 25 per cent chance that the market will go to disastersville around 500, a place to which some chartists have been prophesying everyone is going in a series of three collapses. Other chartists — and there are always other chartists — like William Schienman of Timings-Weisenberger Services (the 700 figure may prove over- pessimistic. At present the market is building a base. So long as it sticks around 800 for the next few months it should start the long climb upwards thereafter. ici The Kconomisl of London Corn Regains Lost Ground WASHINGTON (AP) - A government report indicates there may be signs the 1974 corn crop, sputtering for weeks because of delayed, plantings, may be regaining some of its lost ground. By last weekend, the Agriculture Department said Tuesday, corn generally continued to grow well despite temperatures being lower than normal. The crop was described in fair to good condition in the Corn Belt, although the planting delays have meant plants are not as tall as usual at this time. "Illinois corn fields average 20 inches high, compared to 20 inches last year," USDA said in a weekly weather summary. "Minnesota corn averaged 18 inches, six inches shorter than in 1973." forbids both the United States and Canada from polluting waters that cross the boundary. Then, the Canadian government issued three formal diplomatic notes to the U. S. State Department calling for a moratorium on the project. The controversy in North Dakota surrounds a plan to transfer water from Lake Sakakawea, created by the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers in 1955 in an effort to tame the Missouri River, for irrigation of farm lands in north-central and eastern parts of the state. Construction of the project, due to deliver the first water in 1977, calls for chopping 1,800 miles of canals and waterways through North Dakota. Included in the construction is the McClusky Canal which snakes its way across 74 miles of central North Dakota with cuts up to 114 feet deep at points. When completed in 1993, up to 841,000 acre-feet of water will flow through the Garrison Diversion Unit each year from the Missouri River — enough water to quench the thirst of a large metropolitan area. But environmentalists and the Canadian government are now fighting to change the Bureau of Reclamation's "when" to an "if completed." The leading critic of Garrison Diversion has been the Committee to Save North Dakota, a group drawing support from farmers whose land lies directly in the path of the Bureau of Reclamation's draglines. One argument against the North Dakota irrigation unit has been its price tag, which jumped from an original estimate of $212 million to a new projection of more than $340 million. A coalition of 13 national environmental groups recently listed Garrison Diversion in a brochure titled ''Disasters in Water Development." The brochure claims Garrison Diversion will destroy more than 17,000 acres of wetlands that support migrating ducks and geese. It labels Bureau of Reclamation claims, of environmental benefits as "an outright hoax." Both U.S. and Canadian sides have agreed in a carefully-worded joint communique to creation of an international committee to monitor the project and to review efforts aimed at preventing salt pollution of Canadian waters. Manitoba Minister of Mines, Resources and Environmental Management Sidney Green told North Dakota state officials: "We are frankly unable to see how the Garrison Diversion can be proceeded with without causing pollution to Manitoba waters. We are, however, willing to let your officials demonstrate to ours how you intend to do this." Green's message was clear: Canada expects the United States to abide by'the 1909 treaty which prohibits pollution of waters crossing the international boundary. At the same time, ominous rumblings began coming from Washington. A letter to North Dakota Gov. Arthur A. Link from Under Secretary of State William J. Casey outlining the department's concern over Garrison Diversion said: "The available data do suggest serious problems for our relations with Canada if the Garrison Unit is continued as presently proposed." It began to appear that Canadian officials would succeed where American environmentalists had failed.
