The Rev. Frederic Buss was in charge, a 38 - year old M et h o d i s t pastor who once worked with the late Martin Luther King Jr. He organized a two - day "laboratory course" called "living effectively in the new society (LENS)." The scene was a summer resort in the gently rolling green hills ; along Belgium's border with West Germany, not far from Aachen. There was no talk of sin of baptism or conversion or salvation, but of "human resurgence." '. "I believe we're delivering ihe thrust of the Christian message," said Buss. ; "We don't use the tradition!al words and symbols.in this ;course because a conversation in depth on the essence of ibeing human, human in the •full, sensitive and aware, is 'something every man wants .to join." 1 He explained that he wants •to reach people who dislike •the old symbols, or do not understand them. ! He works closely with his ;wife, Sarah, a professional psychologist. Both belong to !the Ecumenical Institute in Chicago, which sponsored the course. Their children; Elizabeth, 8, land Lindsey, 6, are being cared for by institute members while the parents are in •Europe; The -other two teachers were also a Chicago cou- !ple — David P. Wood Jr., and his wife, Anne. They are volunteers— he is a member of la big Chicago law firm, Mc•Dermott, Will and Emery. Buss points out that other 'Courses given by the institute been made in the Philippines, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Brit" ain. In Neu-Moresnet there were 27 participants of four nationalities, most of them Americans. It was something like a long revival meeting or a short religious retreat. Work began at 7 a.m. and lasted until well after midnight. Sessions were sprinkled with songs and readings. The readings mostly were from a book of Japanese legends. New trial is ordered for flag embellisher AUSTIN, Tex. (UPI)-David Edmonson Renn was arrested on Flag Day 1970 for carrying an American flag with a peace symbol on it. A court in Dallas sentenced Renn to 10 years hi prison' for violating the state's flag dese- oration code. During the course of the trial, the prosecution described Renn as a "hippy," "anti-Christ," and a "Communist" and his flag as a "Swastika." The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals ruled such remarks were improper and ordered a new trial. 40 ACRES SPORTMEN'S PARADISE:' High Cool Country "per mo.
