  • Description

    AFTER THEIR STRENUOUS TOUR OF THE UNITED STATES, AND ATTENDING QUEEN JULIANA'S SILVER WEDDING CELEBRATIONS IN AMSTERDAM, THE SHAH AND QUEEN OF PERSIA ARRIVED IN GENEVA, SWITZERLAND, MAY 3 FOR A FEW DAYS RELAXATION BEFORE RETURNING TO TEHERAN. THE SHAH, AN ATHLETIC MAN, CHOSE TEN-PIN BOWLING AS HIS PARTICULAR FORM OF RELAXATION, AND COULD BE SEEN ANY AFTERNOON COMPETING AGAINST MEMBERS OF HIS SUITE AT THE LOCAL BOWLING ALLEY.

    HIS OPPONENT MAY 9 WAS HIS 21-YEAR OLD DAUGHTER PRINCESS SHAHNAZ, WHO HAPPENED TO BE HOLIDAYING IN SWITZERLAND AT THE SAME TIME WITH HER HUSBAND AND SMALL DAUGHTER. HER FATHER IS SOMETHING OF AN EXPERT, BUT AS YOU SEE FROM OUR FILM THE PRINCESS HASN'T YET MASTERED THE FOOTWORK TECHNIQUE.

    PRINCESS SHAHNAZ IS THE DAUGHTER OF THE SHAH BY HIS FIRST MARRIAGE TO PRINCESS FAWZI, SISTER OF EX-KING FAROUX OF EGYPT, AND IS MARRIED TO MR. ZAHEDI, FORMER PERSIAN AMBASSADOR TO WASHINGTON.
