Los Angeles - It was Round Two in the continuing battle between long hair and the city's Recreation and Parks Commision - and long Hair lost again.
This time it was the cast of the musical Hair that wanted permission to use a local park. Not only did the commision members reject the plea, they even declared its defeat before they voted on it.
(Round One was staged less than a month earlier when the commissioners gave support to an ordinance severly limiting rock music in parks and on beaches.)
