Davis talks
at meeting
with Guru
NEW YORK (UPI) - Rennie
Davis, defendant in the 1968
"Chicago Seven" trial, led 3,500
youths this weekend in worship
of a 15-year-old Indian guru
whom he calls the "living per-
fect master" - the answer to
all the world's ills.
Davis acted as taster of cere-
monies Saturday at a happening
in the newly named Louis Arm-
strong stadium to welcome the
Guru Baharaj Ji on the first stop
in a seven-city tour of the coun-
"I BELIEVE 1973 is the year
America will recognize that the
living perfect master is here,"
said Davis, who forsook radical
politics several months ago to
become a devotee of the cheru-
bic-faced guru.
Several hundred followers,
wearing buttons depicting the
Indian boy, burst forth with the
Hindu response "Bolie Shri Sat-
burudev Maharaj Ki Jai!" which
is Hindu for "Speak of the Glory
of the Perfect Master!"
After two hours of music and
talk, the guru himself entered a
stage bedecked with roses and
sat on a large velvet throne as
a rock band played music with
spiritual lyrics. To his enrap-
tured followers he said "I can

Light Mission which has offices
around the nation, claims 40,000
followers in the United States
and 6 million around the world.

All by itself, this innocuous square of paper hardly
-,ems important. But every" week about 170,000
ounds of newsprint comes into Ann Arbor as news-
papers or to be made into newspapers. Well-packed,
that would make a square pile 20 feet on a side and
10 feet tall, solid newsprint. After the news is read,
the paper is buried and both are forgotten. But the
pile of old newsprint will grow until it no longer can.
be ignored.

Fortunately, there is a solution. Old newsprint can
be recycled and made into paper products, thus
sparing the landscape and trees that would other-
wise have been cut. In Ann Arbor the Ecology
Center has a recycling station on South Industrial
Highway, off Stadium, just south of the Coca-Cola
bottlers. It's open from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Wednes-
day thru Saturday.
