Saint Martin Singers can recall air raid fellowship LONDON (CP) Rev. W. D. Kennedy-Bell of the Anglican Church is well known far beyond any diocese he has worked in. He conducts the Saint Martin Singers whose- reputation is worldwide. "For 15 years we have broadcast programs in the BBC's African Service called 'Hymns and their he said in an interview. "We are an amateur group. We are givsn a courtesy fee and we put this money aside to enable us to travel and give programs, at our own expense, whenever we are asked to do so." The Saint Martin Singers be- gan by accident during the Second World War when London was enduring constant bombing. "At that he said, "every building had to have a group of firewatchers on rota who would stay the night on duty just to be ready to deal with any firebombs or other alarms. "The little group I was the Church of St.- Martin-in-theFields in Trafalgar also had the vicar, Eric Loveday, in it; to while away the hours we took hymn books and began to sing together with Mr. Loveday, a gifted musician, conducting. "We enjoyed it so much that we kept it up every week on our particular night of duty and when the war was over we stayed together, developed our repertoire and went on from hymns to other types of music." CONDUCTOR DIED In those days Mr. Kennedy- Bell was one of the singers but when Eric Loveday went for a tour abroad he asked Kennedy-Bell to take over the conducting. Tragi- cally, within the first few weeks of his tour Mr. Loveday died suddenly and, as Mr. Kennedy-Bell says, "I stayed on conducting; it was quite by chance that I ceased to be a tenor in the group and became its conductor and I've been conducting it ever since, for the last 26 years." The group calls itself The Saint Martin Singers almost as a battle honor, since it is not otherwise connected with the church; it has branched out considerably since those firewatching days. "We began to develop pro- grams of readings and music on a said Kennedy- Bell. "I don't think anything of this least in my ex- been done before. Of course, there were programs of readings and music, but ours were 'themed' so that the music flowed into the verse and prose and vice- versa and we've gone on from that ever since." The size of the group varies from 18 to 25. "We try not to have more than 25. Once you get beyond that it gets too big to we always sit in a semicircle and you can get too big a circle both for broadcasting and visual effect. "One of the joys is that we often have professionals with us who sing for us as amateurs; they're never paid, they just come for the love of "it. "The members are of all de- never ask about that; they're a wonderful mixture, young and old. The youngest at the moment is about 15 or 16 and the oldest she wouldn't like to say but I reckon she's not far short of 70. "And we've got, apart from myself, one or two of the originals who were in the fire- watchers and others who have, been with us for at least 20 years. The Saint Martin Singers is a group that's easy to join but very hard to leave." Hindu student says American gurus offer superficial faith By GEORGE W. CORNELL AP Religion Writer NEW YORK (AP) Most of the Oriental cults that have spread in the United States, particularly among youths, are characterized by an ex- pert in the field as "easysell" counterfeits. "They're said Dr. Agehanada Bharati, who studied as a Hindu monk in India and Tibet and who now is chairman of the anthro- pology department of Syr- acuse University in upstate New York. "They dissimulate the sources and offer a washed- down version for American he added. "They're not only superficial but really nefarious because they misrepresent what is profoundly difficult as nice and easy. "They're caricatures of the originals." There are about 200 gurus operating in the U.S., many of them with huge followings. Bharati. 50. an authority on Eastern religions and author of several books about Orien- tal philosophies andpractices, says the popular gurus among Americans offer "an easy sell, whatever will catch on." Young people flock to them "because it's different from whatever mama and papa did at home." freeing them of the necessity of coming to grips with their own religious tradi- tions and background. ADHERENTS LAZY "They're intellectually he said. "They want it dished up pleasurably so as to give them some sort of kick. It gives them a chance to react in packs." Bharati, whose own ex- periences in the East are re- counted in a recently issued Doubleday paperback, The Ochre Robe, said most of the gurus in the U.S. are not ac- cepted by leading monastic teachers in the East. Authentic Hindu and Bud- dhist religions offer "an enormous amount of powerful and profound traditions, liter- ature and modes of but the Americanized versions dillute it for merchandising purposes. "What I resent is the way they transform it to make it palatable and set themselves up directly as the only sources, thereby discouraging going to the original sources." He said about a dozen lead- ing universities have excellent programs in Oriental philoso- phy but their classes are small and real students in the field "would have nothing to do with these cults." NOVELTY WEARS OFF Bharati said Maharishi Ma- hesh Yogi, who teaches what is called transcendental medi- -tation. offers some values but greatly oversimplifies so as to make few demands on adhe- rents. Because of the super- ficiality of the cults, he said, most of them suffer rapid and heavy attrition among follow- ers when the novelty wears off. He said a few authentic Ori- ental groups, such as Lama Cpgyam Trungpa's Tail of the Tiger centres in West Barnet, Vt. and Boulder, Colo., "don't compromise their tra- ditions." "Consequently their follow- ings are small." The popularized cults have spread throughout the United States and Canada and even the smallest communities have their practising gurus. "It's a thriving he said. He noted, for ex- ample, that the Hare Krishna group sells million worth of incense annually. He added: "It's good in- cense." Church Chuckles by CARTWRIGHT Prayer day funds aid human needs Lethbridge and district families have contributed nearly to international church relief programs through the 1974 World Day of Prayer observance. Conducted last week at First United Church, the program involved 300 persons. Mrs. Marjorie Morris was the theme speaker and music was performed by the Golden Mile Singers. "This year's offering was the second highest amount since -World Day of Prayer observances started in Lethbridge in 1930." said co- ordinator Joyce Langford. The ecumenical service was prepared for simultaneous international use March 1 by the National Christian Council of Japan. Funds received this year will meet human needs in Canada and overseas including the Canadian Bible Society and hospital programs in Guyana, India and Bangladesh.
