Tuesday, Study Friday, Peoples and Young Adults Fellowship. DALLAS, Tex. (AP) The life style of 100 children in East Dallas is difficult for most people to comprehend. The children of Hare Krishna followers have been sent to Dallas by their parents to attend the Gurukula, a com- mune school. Ranging in age from three to 11, the children are taught from the Bhagvadgita, a Hindu spiritual text, and live cut off from the outside world in a monkish atmosphere colored by Eastern mysticism. The school, in an old church building, is funded by the Los Angeles-based International Society for Krishna Con- sciousness, founded in 1965 by a retired Indian businessman, A.C. Baktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. The movement's members have become a familiar sight in most large cities. They wear saffron robes, daub their foreheads with paste and chant "Hare Krishna." The young boys' heads are shaved, except for a top knot, so Krishna can yank them into heaven at the proper time. The boys wear dhotis, the orange wrap-around. The single goal of the Gurukula is to make priests of the boys. At age 10, .most of them go to a farm in West Virginia. Girls in the school are en- couraged to be submissive. They wear ankle-length saris and keep their heads covered to discourage men. Many of the girls wear rings in their noses, the holes made with sewing needles, as a mark of chastity. The children's day begins at 4 a.m. and ends at 7 p.m. when, segregated by sex and age, they go to sleep on mats in a damp church basement. The typical day in the school includes two or three showers, numerous religious services and six offerings of food to Krishna. 'Hare Krishna indoctrination turns followers into vegetables' KENTVILLE, N.S. (CP) A 19-year-old resident of this Annapolis Valley community said Monday he .was "psychologically kidnapped" by a cult, the Hare Krishna in Ottawa. A former student at Carleton University in Ottawa and Acadia University here, Allan North said he also had to be "kidnapped" to escape the cult and deprogramed of its brainwashing "So I was forced to think for myself again." Mr. North told a local ser- vice club the Hare Krishna "revolves around an eman- ciated old Indian businessman who, through adroit juggling of Hindu literature, added a new twist to an old religion and established himself as the head of it a personal friend of God." Mr. North said Hare Krishna imposes strict dis- cipline on its members. "Thinking is forbidden and their life span is about six years by which time they will either be dead because of malnutrition or related damage, or irreversibly in- sane." The youth's father, Dr. Emmerson' North, a veterinarian, said when his son was taken from Ottawa, "a warrant was immediately issued for our arrest for ab- duction. Had they (Hare Krishna) caught us before he was deprogramed .he would not have been out again." The youth said: "If a member chooses to leave the cult, he will be forced because of the indoctrination, into a vegetable like state, or he will have to rejoin the movement." -The Herald- Religion Moral duel on CBC A moral duel of intellect and will between a 19th century despot and a humble Wesleyan cleric, based.on historical fact, makes absorbing television drama as CBC's Performance presents The Man in the Tin Canoe, Sunday at 9 p.m. Douglas Campbell stars as Sir George Simpson, Hudson's Bay Co. governor of Rupert's Land in the 1840s, Leo Burns plays Rev.
