Indian mystic talks
to Reps at Ill.capitol asked
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (A7) - The
Indian guru whose gentle eyes and
flowing robes glided across the!
youth culture scene of the 1960s
came to the Illinois Statehouse yes-
terday with a message on how toI
handle fiscal problems.
"People who make budgets aret
nervous when there are problemst
in society," said the Maharishi Ma-.
hesh Yogi. "The basis of a restfulj
budget is no problems in society."a
The guru, who has served as
spiritual adviser to the Beatles,
the Beach Boys and Mia Farrow,?
also told the House of Representa-
tives he sensed in its chamber "a
spirit of Abraham Lincoln, who
stood for unity and freedom, and
I'm just thrilled to the heart."
Before addressing the House, the+
exponent of transcendental medi-1
tation kicked off his sandals and,+

Although the committee invited
Dean to testify on Gray's qualifica-
tions to be FBI director, it has
lately been centering its hearings
on a probe into the Watergate case.
Gray, who was appointed acting
director of the FBI following the
death of J. Edgar Hoover last
year, testified last week he gave
FBI files on the Watergate inves.
tigation to Dean.
If Dean turns down the invita-
tion as expected, liberal Democrats
on the committee are likely to try
to subpoena the White House legal
adviser, but it is uncertain if they
can muster enough votes.
Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.),
a member of the Judiciary Com-
mittee, said if Nixon did not al-
low Deanuto testify, "I think it
will be much more difficult for
Gray to be confirmed."

Later, the Maharishi met with
about 50 persons in a legislative
committee hearing room. Although
the meeting was described as a
conference with government agen-
cy heads, most of those present
appeared to be from nearby col-
committee hearings on the fitness
of Nixon's choice, Patrick Gray,
to be permanent head of the Fed-
eral Bureau of Investigation.
