USA: HIPPIE CONCERT IN NEW YORK PARK

Please read the Disclaimer


NEW YORK HIPPIES QUIETLY RELAXED OR DANCED IN A CITY PARK YESTERDAY (THURSDAY) TO ALIVE SHOW OF "UNDERGROUND" MUSIC -- A CONTRAST TO THE DISTURBANCE ON TUESDAY WHEN 38 HIPPIES WERE ARRESTED. ONLY ONE POLICEMAN WAS IN SIGHT YESTERDAY AND IT WAS PEACEFUL DESPITE DIFFERENCES IN MUSICAL TASTE BETWEEN YOUNG AND OLD HIPPIE AND SQUARE. SOME OF THE HIPPIES, WHO SAY THEY ARE "COOL" WORE FAR-OUT CLOTHES, INCLUDING HINDU AND AFRICAN PRINTS, BELLS AROUND THE NECK AND AMERICAN INDIAN HEADBANDS. BUT MOST WORE WHAT MOST AMERICANS PUT ON WHEN THEY WANT TO RELAX -- BLUE JEANS, BERMUDA SHORTS OR A SHIFT DRESS. THE MUSIC -- THE FIRST IN A SERIES OF SUMMER CONCERTS -- CAME FROM A NEW YORK ELECTRONIC GROUP THAT GAINED FAME AND FORTUNE IN CALIFORNIA. MANY OF THE NON-HIPPIE PRESIDENTS FROM AROUND THE LOWER EAST SIDE PARK MUTTERED DISAPPROVING COMMENTS ABOUT THE "WILD, DRUG ADDICTS' MUSIC" COMING FROM THE PARK SOUNDSHELL. A PARK EMPLOYEE SAID MANY COMPLAINTS HAD BEEN RECEIVED FROM OLDER RESIDENTS IN THE AREA ABOUT NOISE IN THE PARK. BUT THE CONCERT ORGANISER TOLD THE AUDIENCE AT THE START OF THE PROGRAMME: "THIS IS YOUR THEATRE, THIS IS YOUR COMMUNITY AND THIS IS SET UP TO PROVE IT."
