Mideast cease-fire ignored

From the Associated Press
Israel moved tanks and artillery to
the edge of battered west Beirut
yesterday as exchanges of rifle and ar-
tillery fire threatened to dissolve the
latest Lebanese cease-fire.
In Washington, President Reagan
told Israeli foreign minister Yitzhak
Shamir that there must be "a complete
end" to the fighting by all parties to
allow negotiations for a settlement of
the Leanese crisis to proceed, Reagan
said, "the world can no longer accept a

PARKER ordered in advance that

But the sources said that the report
told the judge that Hinckley remains af-

by psychiatrists Sally Johnson and
Park Elliott Dietz, who testified for the
government. Johnson works at the
federal correctional institution at But-
ner, N.C., and Dietz at Harvard.
NO MATTER what the doctor's
opinion, only Parker can order Hin-
ckley released.
In a telephone call to Washington
Post reporter Laura Kiernan after his
trial, Hinckley was asked if he was
ready to be released.
"I certainly would not be a danger to
myself," he said, "and I honestly don't
think I've been a danger to society ... I
certainly would not be a danger to the
president, I'll say that for sure."

LOCAL HARE KRISHNA devotees, Dasarath, Candrasekhara, and Barry play and chant at the city's art fair last mon-
th. Members passed out free literature and discussed their philosophies and lifestyles.
Hare Krishnas return to city

Shunned by some as a religious cult,
praised by others as true seekers of
spirituality, the Hare Krishnas are
back in Ann Arbor - to mixed reaction
from the community.
The local Krishna culture center,
which shut down four years ago after
losing its manager, re-opened last mon-
th at 606 Packard, according to
Dasarath, the center's current
THE KRISHNAS, Dasarath said, are
glad to be back.
"There are many open-minded
people in this city," he said. "Ann Ar-
bor hasa friendly atmosphere."
Some members of the community

have welcomed back the group with
open arms. "I don't think there is
anything wrong with people trying to
satisfy their spiritual needs," said local
resident Avi Erlich, of the Kirshna's
return. "One has to respect the
freedom of choice of other individuals."'
OTHERS, however, have been shar-
ply critical of the group's eccentric
habits and lifestyle.
"I think the Krishna religion is a cult;
dancing around and chanting in public is
so different from the norm," said Craig
Halberstadt, an LSA senior. "I think
they can be categorized in the same
group as the Moonies."
The shaven-headed, colorfully robed

Krishnas are not troubled by such
critics. The members of the group,
whose flamboyant manner of dress,
diet, and public chanting consistently
has aroused the public's curiosity, point
to the 5,000 year-old Indian tradition of
their lifestyle and the contentment it
brings them.
DASARATH, a former member of a
rock band, said he joined the group 12
years ago after experiencing a "high"
from chanting.
"From chanting I experienced real
pleasure that links me up to God. The
pleasure received from sex isn't an-
ything like it," he said.
