Munich."
The purpose of yoga here, he
ted, is different from that in
dia. "The Gurus here make
t their simplified yoga tech-
ques as preventions from wars
d problems at home." Yoga,
mentioned in Hindu scrip-
res, is for liberation from re-
rth, according to Bharati.
The Swami discussed several
iasons for the rise of the 60's
.ovements. Most important was
he moral rejection of -the
dea-Christian base," especial-
in suburbia, which he char-
terized with "barbeque sauce,:
n mowers and the nine to
ve syndrome."
AL1.O important to the cults'
e were the rejection of the
mpirical, rational and aca-
mic" as well as the "aestheti-
1" shunning of puritanism.
arati described India as the
o s t puritanical "jockstrap
untry" in the world, where
aving fun" during sex made
evil.

MEANWHILE, the UPI wire
service reported bitter denunci-
ations of the rate hike request
from Attorney General Frank
Kelley. "In my judgment," Kel-
ley said, "it is wrong for a pub-
lic utility to ask for a rate in-
crease that would vastly boost
its profits at a time when 25.
per cent of the people of Detrit
are out of work."
Heidel said the company also
needed the money to resume a
$3.5 million construction pro-
gram halted last year for a l:ick
of money.
MONEY FOR this construc-
tion, Heidel said, comes mostly
from private investors. However
due to what Edison called its;
"poor credit risk" image, p-

If the current request is grant-
ed, the average household uaiity
cost would go up $3.51.
According to Carl Kaplan,
denuty director of policy for the
PSC, it could take as long as
nine months before a final de-,
cision is handed down by the
Commission.
He added that public hear'rrs
are nlanned where consumers
will be allowed to voice their
feelings.
