As the nation watched in late 1969 and early 1970, John Froines and his co-defendants turned the Chicago 7 trial into a theater of the absurd protesting the U.S. political system. But that was then; this is now. The chemist, recently named director of UCLA's Occupational Health Center, wants to know why reporters can't ask about his public health career from 1974 to the present. Why do they focus on his radical past? "People are always saying, 'Is John Froines the same radical he was in 1968?'

John Froines hadn't seen much of Abbie Hoffman over the last few years. But they were thrown together nearly 20 years ago as members of the famous Chicago Seven who underwent a raucous 4 1/2-month trial stemming from street protests at the 1968 Democratic convention. And that often hard and bitter courtroom drama left Froines with an enduring fondness for the wild-haired counterculture guerrilla and Yippie leader who died Wednesday at age 52. "You talk about great people and you think of John Kennedy or Winston Churchill," Froines, now a member of the public health faculty at UCLA, said Thursday.
