December 20, 1976 PAGK 8 HAYS DAILY NEWS Parlor Pressured To Close OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (UPI) — Sylvia Hughes went to a shopping center a few months ago to buy some ice cream and took an impromptu tour of a massage parlor. Mrs. Hughes said what she saw at the Light Touch prompted her to start a campaign to close it. "The more I saw, the madder I got," she said. "I came home and typed a letter and said we didn't plan on sitting by while this kind of sexual immorality went on." Last week the massage parlor buckled under community pressure and impending legal snarls and closed. Bank Robbed Of $240,000 MADRID, Spain (UPI) — Five men firing submachine guns robbed a Madrid bank today of about $240,000, killing a guard and wounding a customer in a guerrilla-style attack. It was not immediately determined if the' attack was political. Few professional Spanish gangsters use submachine guns. Such weapons are more in use by urban guerrillas—such as those who kidnaped an adviser to King Juan Carlos nine days ago. Left-wing and separatist gangs sometimes rob banks to finance their operations. The gunmen held up a branch 'of the Hispano Americano Bank in eastern Madrid. They shot guard PolicromioChillon Lucas, who died on the floor of the bank. A customer was wounded. The suspense surrounding the kidnaping of Antonio Maria Oriol mounted Monday as more than 36 hours passed with no new word from his captors. The parlor had been operating behind closed blinds in a small shopping center for almost a year as a health spa. In the fall, Mr*. Hughes said she and some friends were invited inside by a man who wanted to give them a tour. "I guess he thought he could scare us off," she said. Inside, Mrs. Hughes said she was shown a small amount of health and massage equipment and several "exotic and sensually furnished bedrooms," which she said the guide told her were for "permanent customers." After the tour, Mrs. Hughes sent letters to churches and neighbors asking for help in closing the massage parlor. Citizen complaints resulted in a few arrests for prostitution, and the city adopted a new ordinance requiring licensing for all employes to ensure proper training in massage, strict regulation of the clothing to be worn by employes and other regulations to prohibit the touching of genital areas during massages. Undercover officers gathered sufficient information to allow city attorneys to draw up nine complaints against the Light Touch. A hearing was scheduled last week, but an attorney for the massage parlor surrendered the spa's license.

Inr. (2-20-7* VATICAN CITY (UPI) — Pope Paul VI Monday chose June, 19, 1977, for the canonization of the first U.S male saint, Blessed John Nepomucen Neumann, former Roman Catholic bishop of Philadelphia. The Pope chose the date as he convened a consistory of the Sacred College of Cardinals and read a letter outlining his thoughts on church activity over the past year. Neumann was, a Bohemian- born naturalized American was the fourth bishop of Philadelphia and served in that post between 1852 and I860, when he died at the age of 49. The Pope beatified Neumann in 1963, making him the first U.S. citizen to become a "blessed." The only Americans so far raised to sainthood have been women: St. Frances Xavier Cabrini and St. Elizabeth Ann Bayley Seton, canonized in 1946 and 1975 respectively. The ceremony to make Neumann a saint was originally expected late this year, but the Pope and Cardinal John J. Krol, the current Archbishop of Philadelphia, decided to shift it to next year. The Pope also selected Jan. 23,1977, for the canonization of Sister Raffaella Maria Porras POPE PAUL VI of Spain as a saint. She was the founder of a religious order. In the course of the consistory, the pontiff also names three auxiliary bishops—two in the United States and one in Australia. Msgr. Manuel Moreno and Msgr. Thaddeus Shubsda were named auxiliary bishops to Cardinal Timothy Manning, Archbishop of Los Angeles. In addition, the Rev. Patrick Murphy was named auxiliary bishop to Cardinal James Darcy Freeman of Sydney, Australia.

(UPI Photo) Ship Battered Strong winds and heavy seas continued to pound the grounded Argo Merchant the past weekend, hampering efforts «o remove 7.5 million gallons of Hare Krishna Santas Given Cool Treatment SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) — Beneath the caps of street Santas this Christmas season are some' shaved heads of members of the Hare krishna sect. The move to don Santa Claus costumes to solicit funds and distribute literature, is by design, says a spokesman for the eastern-oriented religious organization. "We're not a Christian religion," said the" spokesman at the Hare Krishna Temple in nearby Berkeley. "But Christianity has nothing to do with Santa Claus. "He was a saint. And we are also in his spirit in our closeness to God. We are trying to interject the true spirit of Christmas by going out in Santa Claus suits and offering books and,accepting donations. "But though we have permits, we get into trouble sometimes because people don't like the idea of an eastern religion relating to Santa Claus. Some think we're hippies, or they don't like our shaved heads." In Charleston, W. Va., three Santa-costumed members of a Hara Krishna sect from Cleveland ran into police who thought they were panhandling. They were arrested. A spokesman for the San Francisco Police Department said three or four Hare Krishna Santas are making the rounds in the downtown Union Square area, seeking funds. "It's the first year I recall them being down here in Santa Claus costumes," he said. "But they have permits." In San Mateo, a suburb south of San Francisco, police said a meter maid reported two Hare Krishna Santas "harassed" people while soliciting funds this week and last. One woman said she was asked for $10 and was offered literature. She came up with 25 cents and got the reading material anyway. "So long as they come in and prove they're nonprofit, there is nothing we can do to stop .them," said a member of the San Mateo License Department. Said the Hare Krishna spokesman: "All kinds of groups use the costume. It's Christmas, isn't it? The trouble is, everybody tries to label us, but we are San Mateo Police Depart- simply a way of un- ment: ; ; derstanding life." "I guess Santa Claus is .all Said a spokesman for the things to all people. Simon Sees Eventual Collapse Of OPEC WASHINGTON (UPI) — William Simon, outgoing treasury secretary, says he is sure the Middle East oil cartel will collapse someday, but he's not sure when. Simon said he was "extremely pleased" that Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates raised oil prices this month only half as much as other members of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries. Asked if the split OPEC decision on price increases signaled the breakup of the oil cartel, Simon said,"I wouldn't be that near-term optimistic, but I've often said it's not a matter of whether the OPEC cartel would breakup but when." He said the cartel "will break up faster" if the United States encourages oil independence by freeing WILLIAM SIMON domestic prices from controls, to encourage exploration dnd development by American firms.
