Bob Packwood (R-Ore.) made uninvited sexual advances toward them, and according to their accounts, his unwanted kissing and touching extended to campaign volunteers, casual acquaintances and virtual strangers as well as employees and lobbyists.

The Ecclesia Athletic Assn.'s neighbors in Oregon, who last year complained repeatedly that the Watts-based group was mistreating children, have persuaded that state's governor to hear their concerns. Gov. Neil Goldschmidt has arranged for top Oregon officials to meet next week with the residents of rural Sandy, who contend that proper investigation of their complaints could have prevented the death of one Ecclesia child and the alleged physical abuse of more than 40 others.

Twilight is falling. More than 3,000 barefoot, mostly Western and 30-something followers of Osho Rajneesh have padded into a lofty tent christened "Buddha Hall" to again hear the master's words. The guru's white armchair, complete with a cushion to ease his chronic back pain, is reverently borne in and placed on a marble platform. A screen lowers to the amplified twang of a sitar. The projector lights up and purrs.
